Heidi N Closet (Season 12)
Season 12’s Miss Congeniality is back to snatch the “All Stars” crown. Previously winning one challenge, she is ready to prove that she’s got the ssssoft and ssssupple star power to take her all the way to the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
Jaymes Mansfield (Season 9)
Another Season 9 queen, Jaymes Mansfield makes a play for the “All Stars” crown in bringing classic showbiz sparkle to the game. She played Delia Von Whitewoman in the 2021 film “The Bitch Who Stole Christmas,” and launched her own wig line.

Jimbo (Canada’s Drag Race Season 1, U.K. vs. the World Season 1)
Jimbo is an exception this season as the only queen not to have appeared on the main “Drag Race” show. Jimbo first appeared on “Canada’s Drag Race.” This fan favorite won the Snatch Game for her take on Joan Rivers, later appearing on the first season of “U.K. vs. the World.”

Thank you so much,” Kandy told the mother of drag queens, RuPaul, after she was saved from going home. She’s back and ready to see her name in the Drag Race Hall of Fame… and get that Anastacia of Beverly Hills makeup sponsorship.
LaLa Ri (Season 13)
Season 13’s fierce fan favorite is hoping to make it to the finish line this time. She collected the Golden Bootee and became her season’s Lip-Sync Assassin and Miss Congeniality, but there’s one spot she still wants, and that’s her place in “Drag Race” her-story.
Monica Beverly Hillz (Season 5)
Monica Beverly Hillz made her-story in Season 5 when she shared her truth by becoming the second contestant to come out as a transgender woman on the main stage.
