The premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race season six is still six weeks away, but little details are still leaking out every single day, including the latest batch of guest judges. Apparently, they must have really worked their asses off getting guest judges this season, because the list is really pretty impressive.
As fans of Drag Race already know, for her back-to-back guest-judging stints, Khloé Kardashian will join RuPaul and fellow judges Michelle Visage and Santino Rice to help select her episodes’ winners — and which performers will have to “sashay away.” Other boldfaced celebs guest-judging for this go-round? Neil Patrick Harris, Adam Lambert, Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey, Exorcist star Linda Blair, actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, comedian Heather McDonald, rappers Eve amd Trina, Leah Remini, Jaime Pressly, Paula Abdul, David Burtka and designer Bob Mackie. Guest appearances are also expected from Community‘s Gillian Jacobs, Broadway legend Lainey Kazan, comedian Bruce Vilanch, Chaz Bono, and Us Weekly‘s own Entertainment Director, Ian Drew!
“I’ve been a huge fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race for years. Every episode is packed with glamour, beauty secrets and fashion – all things I love!” Kim Kardashian’s sister tells Us. “It really was a dream come true to be a guest judge this season. My favorite part was working with RuPaul who is a legend and getting to know the contestants – they are all so talented. I am cheering for them all!” Indeed, Khloé guest judges not one but two episodes! SOURCE
As excited as I am to see Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka guest judge — they’re going to be adorable — I really cannot wait to see Paula Abdul up there. I’m hoping she’ll be like Janice Dickinson: The guest judge completely zonked out of her skull, who’s clearly under the impression that she’s judging on her old show. Did you notice that? Janice had absolutely NO idea where she was when she was guest judging, and it was hilarious! Although I did feel super bad for poor Rachel Dratch. You just know that she loved being there, but was totally drowned out by Janice’s screeching.
