RuPaul talks ‘Drag Race’ season five!

RuPaul's Drag Race Season Five

Can you believe the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race is less than two weeks away? I know! I’m so excited I could, as Madame LaQueer would say, pee on the floor and do flap-flaps! To promote the fifth season (kicking off Monday, January 28th on LOGO), RuPaul spoke to Starpulse about the new batch of queens, the direction of the fifth season, and what surprised her this time around.

How many would-be stars auditioned for season five in total?

I’ve seen just under a thousand submissions for RuPaul’s Drag Race.

What can we expect to see from the contestants this season?

The queens are younger and more ambitious. They have no qualms about appearing ruthless in their quest to win.

Who surprised you in this season of RuPaul’s drag race?

Each of the contestants was handpicked by me based on the potential I saw in their audition. Without giving away too much, I’m not surprised by any of them, I think they are all genius.

How can they step up their drag game?

All of the contestants are the top American “showgirls” working today, but they could really take it to the next level by learning how to articulate their thoughts and learning diplomacy.
