Nancy Pelosi revealed as judge on new series of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars
Nancy Pelosi will join the third series of RuPaul’s All Stars as a guest judge on the show.
Senate Minority Leader Pelosi, who has an infallible record on supporting LGBT rights, will be joining Drag Race to offer her advice and guidance to the drag queen elite.
Pelosi, who is said to be a big fan of the show, was said to have had “a fabulous time” on set, according to a spokesperson from the show.
Also joining the line-up in the new series includes Vanessa Hudgens, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Tituss Burgess, Kristin Chenoweth, Marc Jacobs, Shay Mitchell, Chris Colfer, Vanessa Williams, Adam Lambert, Constance Zimmer and Emma Bunton.
The competition this season includes Aja (season nine), BenDeLaCreme (season six), Chi Chi DeVayne (season eight), Kennedy Davenport (season seven), Milk (season six), Morgan McMichaels (season two), Shangela (seasons two & three), Thorgy Thor (season eight) and Trixie Mattel (season seven).
Enthusiasts will also have a chance to play the Drag Fantasy League, which participating fans can choose a six-queen team, and will gain or lose points based on their team’s performance throughout the season.
This will be the politician’s reality show debut. Although she has previously starred in 30 Rock as herself, the Congresswoman has tended to steer away from the shining world of entertainment.
The first episode of the new series will air on January 25 at 8pm in the US.
