Asia O’Hara

Former Miss Gay America Asia O’Hara was a frontrunner on Season 10 before an ill-fated butterfly reveal during the finale lip-sync landed her in fourth place. Handpicked to be part of the franchise’s Las Vegas residency, RuPaul's Drag Race Live, and Voss Events’ Drag Race Drive-In, Asia O’Hara is primed for ru-demption on All Stars.

Crystal Methyd

Cue El DeBarge’s “Rhythm of the Night!” Season 12 standout Crystal Methyd didn’t snatch the crown, but she did win the heart of RuPaul, who dubbed Crystal as the season’s “wacky” queen. Fans want to see her migrate — “like a bird” — back to the Drag Race main stage sooner rather than later.

Plastique Tiara

Plastique Tiara, who has 6.3 million TikTok followers and 2 million Instagram followers, served stunning looks before being eliminated early in Season 11. Vogue once featured the Haus of Edwards alum in a story titled, “Plastique Tiara Is TikTok’s Favorite Drag Queen,” and she is a Drag Race Drive-In regular.

Peppermint might be booked and busy on Broadway, but we’re hoping the Season 9 runner-up frees up time for an All Stars appearance. If Peppermint, who was the first openly transgender woman to compete on Drag Race, wins an All Stars season, she will become the third Season 9 queen to snatch an All Stars crown following Trinity The Tuck’s All Stars 4 co-win in 2019 and Shea Couleé’s All Stars 5 victory in 2020.

Kim Chi

Season 8 finalist Kim Chi is a fan-favorite for her show-stopping makeup looks and garments, and while she has a reputation as a look queen, it would be compelling to see how the KimChi Chic Beauty owner would elevate her style even further if she was asked to come back for an All Stars season.

Nina West

Miss Congeniality Nina West impressed viewers with her comedy and personality on Season 11, and many fans think her stepped-up wardrobe that she’s honed by attending countless red carpets would help Nina excel on All Stars. RuPaul brought Nina and other Miss Congeniality winners back to be roasted for Season 13’s roast challenge, and now it’s time to bring her back to compete on All Stars.

Heidi N Closet

Season 12 Miss Congeniality Heidi N Closet has the tongue trill heard all around the drag community — and a loud, lovable personality to boot. “Blessed and highly favored,” Heidi won the branding challenge on her season. Heidi returned for the Season 13 roast, wearing an impressive “Smooth Criminal”-inspired outfit. Looks like she’s aiming to bring the total package to All Stars, when the time is right.

April Carrión

Drag Race queens who were eliminated early during earlier seasons are sometimes overlooked as comeback contenders. Season 6’s April Carrión would have a lot to prove upon her return, but from what we’ve seen of her IRL and on Instagram, she’s ready to report for duty again on an All Stars season.

Jessica Wild

Season 2’s Jessica Wild, whose unforgettable “I love that drink” moment during a media interview challenge went down in Drag Race herstory back in 2010, is another veteran queen who should be introduced to newer Drag Race viewers on an All Stars season. Jessica was the first queen to impersonate RuPaul for the Snatch Game.

Ginger Minj

Ginger Minj was Season 7’s resident comedy queen and earned a spot in the finale, where she lip-synced about how there’s “no way to pray the gay away.” Ginger Minj already returned for All Stars 2, showing off her live vocals and commanding stage presence, but we still feel like she has some unfinished business to tie up on, say, All Stars 6.

Nina Bo’nina Brown

Nina Bo’nina Brown’s creative drag was truly innovative on Season 9, but her inner saboteur prevented her from making it to the finale. RuPaul gave Nina so many nicknames on that season, and Ru would definitely dole out more on All Stars.

Gigi Goode

Season 12 finalist Gigi Goode went from playing Maria the Robot in the Snatch Game to modeling in the Savage X Fenty Show runway not long after her impressive Drag Race stint. Gigi’s finale happened during the COVID-19 pandemic, so the Season 12 finalists had to compete from home. We want to see Gigi earn her way back into another finale — but this time for All Stars in front of a live audience.
