Get ready for some fishy realness, because RuPaul’s Drag Race is back with its fiercest season yet. Cram-packed with style and signature sass, Drag Race’s seventh season plays host to an all-new cast of fabulous queens, two new permanent judges, and numerous celebrity guest appearances.
Pop culture aficionados Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Dancing with the Stars, and style contributor for Good Morning America, Live with Kelly and Michael!, The Queen Latifah Show, and The Wendy Williams Show) and Ross Mathews (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Chelsea Lately, and Hello Ross) join show veteran Michelle Visage on the judging panel this season to decide which queens will stay, lip-synch for their lives, or “sashay away.”
“I asked for a new, wickedly funny, smart, and experienced judge,” says executive producer RuPaul. “And I got two! Ross and Carson are the perfect addition to the RuPaul’s Drag Race family because they’re not just showbiz experts, they’re super fans and longtime lovers of the art of drag.”
“As quite possibly the biggest super fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race in the entire galaxy, I take my position as a judge very seriously and will proudly serve as a voice for my fellow super fans—albeit, a very high-pitched voice,” says Mathews. “The wigs, the lashes, the gowns—but enough about us judges—the girls this season are so ‘sickening,’ it’s the best season yet!,” Kressley adds.
Season 7 celebrity guest judges include Ariana Grande, Jessica Alba, Demi Lovato, John Waters, Kathy Griffin, Olivia Newton-John, Alyssa Milano, Kat Dennings, Jordin Sparks, Mel B, Tamar Braxton, Rebecca Romijn, Santino Rice, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Urie, Rachael Harris, Lucian Piane and Merle Ginsberg.
