Who Will Be The 10th Queen On 'RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars 3'? The Final Contestant Remains A Mystery
On Friday night, fans found out who would be joining the RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars Season 3 cast — or at least, most of the cast. Within the last few minutes of the VH1 special, host RuPaul left things on a cliffhanger — teasing that all 10 contestants had been announced, even though only nine were actually revealed. Then, Ru coyly pretended to be "so awful at math." So, who will be the 10th queen on All Stars 3? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, fans have plenty of guesses ranging from Season 9's Valentina to BeBe Zahara Benet from the very first season. Basically, the predictions are all over the place.
Season 3 of Drag Race: All Stars premieres in the beginning of 2018, according to Entertainment Weekly. This airdate offers a few possibilities: Ru could keep fans in the dark until the very first episode, or maybe there will be some sort of Facebook Live announcement in the months leading up to the show. After all, before the VH1 special aired on Friday night, Aja was announced as an All Stars contestant earlier in the day during a FB Live. That means, honestly, anything can happen. Especially since RuPaul is the one in charge here. In a press release prior the Ruveal special, the host said,
"Millions of fans have their favorite queens that they THINK should be on All Stars 3. But the final decision is mine to make. Prepare to be gagged."
It's also worth noting that Ru mentioned that there were more than 100 queens to pick from, so there's no shortage of options. So far, the cast includes Aja, BenDeLaCreme, Milk, Shangela, Thorgy Thor, Trixie Mattel, Kennedy Davenport, Chi Chi DeVayne, and Morgan McMichaels. They're all featured in the promotional photo below, which further hints it may not be until the premiere that another queen arrives to shake things up.
In the meantime, here are some of Twitter's best guesses about who will be joining the competition.
BeBe Zahara Benet
BeBe won Season 1 of Drag Race, but fans are pretty adamant that she'll be back to keep her crown.
You might remember her as the Season 6 runner-up. Adore also competed in All Stars 2 before leaving voluntarily. That may be exactly why some people on Twitter are rooting for her to make a comeback.
This Season 5 contestant sparked some fan support on Twitter as the potential final contestant. As a refresher, she was the youngest queen on her Drag Race season.
Peppermint stole fans' hearts as the runner-up in Season 9. And there are a few who wouldn't mind seeing her back on the show.
Darienne came in fourth place in Season 6. The fans below are still rooting for her to make a comeback.
Jasmine may not have made it super far in Season 7, but that doesn't mean she doesn't deserve another shot. Just ask her fans.
At the end of the day, the loyal Drag Race fanbase just wants answers. Whether they offered up guesses or not, viewers went straight to Twitter to vent their frustrations and beg Ru to tell everybody already.
While there are plenty of options for who the final queen could be, it's also worth contemplating whether Mama Ru was just joking and there are only nine after all. If that's the case, chances are that fans won't be too pleased, especially since they've already been sent into a frenzy trying to guess. Can we just fast-forward to January, please?
