RuPaul finally reveals Drag Race All Stars’ gag-worthy ‘game within a game’ twist
It’s been a bumper week for die-hard fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Just one day after a herstory-making UK cast reveal, the long-teased “game within a game” of Drag Race All Stars season six has finally been revealed in a new episode teaser.
Since the season began, eliminated queens have had their exits interrupted by a Jigsaw-like video of RuPaul teasing a huge twist. Now, in a snippet of the upcoming tenth episode, the game has been announced: it’s RuPaul’s Secret RuDemption Lip-Sync Smackdown!
After Eureka was eliminated in the ‘Drag Tots’ episode – after a Charli XCX lip-sync widely questioned by fans and queens alike – the four surviving queens, Trinity K Bonet, Kylie Sonique Love, Ra’Jah O’Hara and Ginger Minj, were all set to debrief and untuck as usual.

Their peace was interrupted by a truly gag-worthy twist, signalled as always by that pesky, signature siren. ‘Drag Tots’ winner Ra’Jah O’Hara’s reaction truly summed up our feelings: “Oh really, b***h?”
An ‘earth-shattering’ Drag Race All Stars lip-sync tournament was announced
Judge Carson Kressley popped up on the screen with a shock announcement set to change the course of this season. “Welcome to RuPaul’s Secret RuDemption Lip-Sync Smackdown,” he said, as the queens looked on in shock.
“A competition so secret, you had no clue it was even happening. A competition so Earth-shattering, its winner could knock you off your path to the Drag Race [All Stars] Hall of Fame!”
The shock twist allows eliminated queens – Serena ChaCha, Jiggly Caliente, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Yara Sofia, Scarlet Envy, A’Keria C. Davenport, Jan, Pandora Boxx and Eureka – to battle against each other for a chance to regain a spot in the competition.
Fans were gagged by the long-awaited news, creating memes about the endless wait and the queens’ hilarious reactions.
