'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Unveils Season 5 Cast and Premiere Date
Meet the 'RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars' Season 5 Cast!
RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars is coming back to basic cable TV, honey.
Due to issues caused by the current health crisis, the reality competition between past contestants of Drag Race, originally slated to run on Showtime, has returned to VH1 for its airing.
The premiere is Friday, June 5, at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific. As usual, competitors will vie for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame and a $100,000 prize.
"For All Stars 5, we've come up with a new twist that is so twisted it's guaranteed to twist your twisted minds," said host and executive producer RuPaul.
Reacquaint yourselves with the 10 All Stars 5 contestants below. Photos and bios courtesy of VH1.
Shea Couleé (Season 9)
Chicago in the house! Shea Coulee came to season 9 to slay, not play! And "slay" she did, snatching four wins on her way to the Grand Finale, before a shocking shower of rose petals sent her packin'. Equal parts bougie and banjie, this polished powerhouse now has her eyes on the All Stars prize!
Ongina (Season 1)

Miz Cracker (Season 10)
"OK, it's time for Cracker!" Season 10's self-described Jewish Barbie brought smarts and sass to the game -- even as she struggled to get out of her head. Now this blond, beloved New Yorker is back to take a crack at the All Stars crown!
Mayhem Miller (Season 10)
The drama is here! Mayhem Miller crashed the Drag Race party on season 10! She started strong, winning the very first challenge, but a peck of pickle problem put her in the bottom, and she sashayed away too soon.

India Ferrah (Season 3)
