The fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars was officially announced on August 19, 2019, via Social Media and VH1's Press Website.[1] The press-release noted that this season will feature the "franchise's most notable queens to prove to Mama Ru why they deserve the crown and a coveted spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame".

No promos were shot for All Stars 5 due to the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore the RuVeal consisted of the queens' entrance looks to the Werk Room. Promos were released on May 8th, 2020 along with the official cast via YouTube. It is currently available to watch on Drag Race's YouTube channel.

The official trailer announced a new twist to this season of All Stars; the Top All Star of the Week will lip sync for their legacy against a Lip Sync Assassin from a previous season; if the All Star wins the lip sync, she’ll get the full power to eliminate a fellow queen, if the Assassin wins, the eliminated queen will be determined after a majority vote by the rest of the contestants, and the $10,000 tip rolls over to further episodes, until an All Star queen wins a lip sync.[2][3]

The season was originally set to air on Showtime, but was later moved back to VH1.

Concluding the run of All Stars 5, Shea Couleé was inducted into the Drag Race Hall of Fame. She received a custom crown and sceptre from Fierce! Drag Jewels, a cash prize of $100,000, and a year supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics.

  • This is the first season of All Stars with/to have....
    • No former Miss Congeniality competing.
    • Jujubee win a maxi challenge and lose a lip-sync
      • She is also the only queen to win her 1st maxi challenge on her 3rd season competing.
    • No official promo shoot for the queens, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
      • This is also the first season since Season 1 without an official promo teaser trailer, which makes Ongina the first queen to compete twice on the show and never appear in one. However, she did appear in the unofficial cast-made promo image.
    • Excluding All Stars 1, no queen from Season 6 nor 7.
    • Only one main challenge winner per episode, as all four previous seasons had two.
    • More than one queen eliminating themselves, with 2 (those 2 queens being Ongina and Mayhem Miller).
    • A Snatch Game to have only 6 competing queens.
    • A final 3 (instead of a final 4 as usual)
    • No RuPaul songs used in any lip sync.
    • No queen have 3 or more wins in a row.
    • Both the Lip Sync Assassin of the week and the Top All Star of the Week having the same lipsticks of the queens that the cast wanted to eliminate.

  • This is the second season of All Stars with/to have...
    • No eliminated queens return to compete later in the season after All Stars 1.
    • A queen from Season 2 to be competing for the third time, Jujubee; however, Jujubee is the only contestant from Season 2 to compete on two separate seasons of All Stars. Shangela was originally in Season 2, Season 3 and All Stars 3, so only competed in 1 season of All Stars.
    • A format change when it comes to eliminations, after All Star 2's "Top 2 Lip-Sync For Your Legacy" format.
    • Aired in the summer, after All Stars 2.
    • No queens who were Runners-Up on their original season, the closest placers being Alexis Mateo and Jujubee, who placed 3rd and Shea Couleé who placed 3rd/4th.
    • Queens from All Stars 1 (Alexis Mateo and Jujubee), after Latrice Royale and Manila Luzon.
    • No queens from the latest season prior to its filming (Season 11), after All Stars 2 which did not include any Season 8 queens.
    • No winners of Snatch Game, and to feature a queen that was eliminated in the Snatch Game episode.
    • An Untucked.
    • A guest judge who is also a main judge on a different Drag Race series, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman from Canada's Drag Race. He previously appeared on All Stars 3, before Canada's Drag Race began.
    • Two winners of the reading challenge, after All Stars 1.
      • This is, however, the first season of All Stars (and the first season overall) where the reading challenge ended in a tie.
    • To use the “Snatch Game of Love” format.
    • To have the eliminated queens return for the finale, after All Stars 3.

  • This is the third season of All Stars with/to have...

  • The average age of the cast of All Stars 5 is 34.3.
    • This is the first season with only 1 contestant being in their 20s.
    • This is also the oldest cast on average.
  • In Episode 4, Morgan McMichaels’ name card has an error, saying she competed on Season 3 and All Stars 3, when in fact she competed on Season 2.
  • Episode 5 has the lowest ratio of top/bottom queens ever of the show, with only 1 queen on top and 5 on the bottom (ratio 1/5).
  • No matter who would have won any of the Lip Syncs For Your Legacy, all the eliminations would have ended in the same way. Since All Stars 2's 'lipstick elimination' format, this season has the most consecutive episodes with the same elimination lipsticks being picked.
    • All Stars 2 would have had different elimination outcomes in Episode 3 (Katya), Episode 6, and 7 (Roxxxy).
    • All Stars 3 would have had different outcomes in Episode 1, Episode 3 (Chi Chi), and Episode 6 (BeBe most likely did not choose to eliminate DeLa).
    • All Stars 4 would have had different outcomes in Episode 4 (Monét).
  • Shea had the most amount of "deciding votes" on the RuMocracy (adding a total of 6) where her only "non deciding vote" was from episode 7. On the other hand Jujubee had the most amount of "non deciding votes" adding a total of 4 (Ep. 2, 3, 5 and 7).

  • The winner of the season, Shea Couleé, has the same statistics with fellow All Stars Winner Trixie Mattel.
  • This is the only Drag Race season where less than half of the cast participated in a lipsync, with only 4 out of 10 queens.
  • "The Charles Family Backyard Ball", the sixth episode of the season, marked the 200th episode of the US franchise (including both regular and All Stars seasons). However, it was not a comemorative episode.
