'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 6 Gets Khloe Kardashian & 16 Other Amazing Guest Judges

RuPaul's Drag Race serves all the elements we crave from reality television: shade, fashion, competition, and MO SHADE. Except, it does so with 100 percent more glitter and sequins, which wins me over every time. But this Season 6 is going to be even more special, and it's all down to two words. Guest. Judges. And girl, you better believe I'm not talking about Michelle Visage or Santino Rice. I'm talking big name, bigger booty guest judges. Yes, I am referring to a Kardashian, but also referring to loads, LOADS more exciting celebrities who will be coming onboard this season, and whoa, will they bring a lot of star power to the many segments Drag Race is known for.

This season's contestants better get ready to werk, because these judges are sure to bring the heat. Here's who's confirmed to judge this season!

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe knows how to werk sparkly clothing, and we can’t wait to see her rip those queens apart on their runway looks. Also I’m fairly sure she also knows how to contour like a queen, good luck to anyone trying to work CoCo Montrese-style foundation.

David Burtka

NEIL PATRICK HARRIS’S BOYF IS COMING. I think his main purpose will be to fluster all of the contestants with his unbearable cuteness and lightness of being.

Um hellooooo musical episode, I SEE YOU. Jazz hands jazz hands jazz hands, I’m not sashaying away, I’m just sashaying joyfully because this is going to be amazing.

Linda Blair

Where the hell is Sharon Needles when you need a bitch? I want to see horror drag and goddammit, I want the spirit of freakdrag to possess me. As if it hasn’t already *spills fake blood from my eyes while voguing fiercely.*

Leah Remini

My excessive and unashamed stalking of everything Drag Race-related means I happen to know that Michelle Visage and Leah Remini are gal pals, which means whatever episode Remini guest-judges for is guaranteed to be sickeningly cute. Also, if there is a god, some sassy contestant will make a pithy joke about King of Queens and I will melt into a puddle of joy.

If Trina doesn’t guest judge an episode somehow to do with padding, then truly, her presence will be somewhat wasted. Those thighs though, she’s da baddest bitch Roxxy Andrews tried to be but wasn’t, end of story.

Jaime Pressly

I want to say something witty about Jaime, but there’s nothing. She’s cute and fierce and can clearly work a side shave and I love her. So she will make a beautiful addition to the judging panel because she managed to make My Name is Earl enjoyable, so she’ll have to work a lot less hard alongside Queen Ru.

Adam Lambert

The Force is strong with this one, the force being guyliner and sparkles. A perfect fit if ever there was one. I cannot wait to hear what Adam has to say about the ladies’ lip-syncing for their lives.

Sheryl Lee Ralph

RuPaul knows how to pick ‘em. If you’re looking for the best stage queen in the game, you bring in a real stage queen, like Sheryl Lee Ralph, to help you make a decision. All I know is that anyone who starred in Moesha will always be a yes in my book.

Bob Mackie

Bob Mackie is a fixture on Drag Race, but with good reason. A man who has dressed drag royalty like Judy Garland, Cher, and Diana Ross deserves to look down from on high and judge the lowly drag queens who can only imitate the women he once styled.

Paula Abdul

I want to be excited by this but I kinda just expect Paula to be bland and allegedly intoxicated like she was for all of American Idol. I love you Paula, but go home, you’re drunk… or not, as she claims.

Gillian Jacobs

Woohooooo, a real Greendale human in the house!

Sweet jesus, the owner of the vagina that birthed Cher, resident mother goddess of all gay men, will be seated happily in a judge seat. There are no words, but I guarantee there will be tears, because even second degree Cher presence will make all the drag queens in the room weep.

Chaz Bono

Repeat the second degree Cher presence thing, because Drag Race just became a family affair. However, Chaz has been a really good judge in the past, so we can expect excellence from the man who can proudly claim to be 50 percent Cher, which means a lot in Drag Race.

Bruce Vilanch

Bruce Vilanch is hilarious and all, but I mostly like when he appears on shows because his neck genuinely looks like a cross between a turkey’s gobble and a vagina, which I find amusing. This is obviously more of a statement about my poor sense of humor than it is about Bruce Vilanch.

Lainey Kazan

This woman is everything, fingers crossed she judges the segment where they pretend to be the librarian and throw shade whilst wearing exciting, Dame-Edna-ish glasses. Because I bet she knows how to throw shade like a diva.

Lena Headey

I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. Ohmygoddddd the queen bitch Lannister is coming to Drag Race, this combination of my two favorite shows makes it like RuPaul reached inside my brain and took my dreams and MADE THEM REAL. Thank you benevolent Ru, thank you.
