RuPaul’s Drag Race gets an all-star season

RuPaul’s Drag Race will air an all-star season this fall, and viewers will select one of its cast members. The satirical reality show competition masquerading as a drag queen competition is currently airing its fourth season on Logo, and the six-episode all-star season will air this fall.

One of the people who will return for All Stars: RuPaul’s Drag Race–I’m not sure if the reversed title is supposed to be funny–will be selected based on votes on Facebook. Fans can now vote for one of the 46 cast members who’ve appeared on the show.
