RuPaul Gifts a Gag-worthy Twist in New “Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular” Clip

Merry Sismas!

These three queens have traversed afar, and they come bearing gifts!

In a new clip from this week’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular watch as Trixie Mattel, Latrice Royale, and Eureka, are the first to return to the workroom—but which of them will be crowned America’s first Drag Race Xmas Queen?


And what fa-la-la-la fierceness is in store when Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, and Sonique join the competition?

In another clip from the special watch Mama Ru make her musical workroom entrance, declaring the war on Christmas to be officially over in front of the entire cast of cast of queens competing for the Christmas crown. RuPaul also teases a shocking twist that leaves Mayhem Miller exclaiming, “What kind of Christmas is this?!”

We knew Ru would have a surprise or two in her stocking.

“Nothing says Christmas like ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and drag queens slipping on their pantyhose,’” said RuPaul in a statement about the special. “Celebrating the holidays with my most festive girls inspired me to record my new album, Christmas Party. And this VH1 holiday extravaganza is my way of saying thank you to my Drag Race family by spreading a little bit of love, laughter and light across the country and around the world.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular premieres Friday, December 7 at 8/7c on VH1.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
