'RuPaul's Drag Race' Reveals Season 10 Cast -- Meet the New Queens!
By Brian Haas
Get ready for even more Drag Race!
RuPaul's Drag Race will return in March for its 10th season, with 14 drag queens vying to become the next big drag superstar. Among them are 13 fresh faces from across the United States and one familiar contestant -- season 9's Eureka O'Hara, who had to bow out early due to a knee injury, is back.
RuPaul marveled at the fact that her show has reached its tenth season already.
"While preparing for season 10, I realized that one of our contestants was 11 years old when we first launched Drag Race," RuPaul said in a statement. "The fact that we’re still here and still going strong is because of our talented queens. They are the heart and soul of the series. And as they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of drag, so does Drag Race."
VH1 revealed the full cast on Thursday, along with a Twitter preview of what's to come: "All of our Queens are 🔟's, but who will be 👑Number 1️⃣👑?!"
