Watch the interviews below and pick who you think will go all the way to become America’s Next Drag Superstar.

  1. Aja

    Aja’s known for her high energy performances, colorful street-style and her fierce makeup looks that have Instagram in a frenzy… and her Drag Race competitors worried.

  2. Alexis Michelle

    New York City’s premiere Broadway queen, Alexis’ love for the stage began early in life, when she saw the original production of Into The Woods. She sees drag as a natural extension of her desire to perform, and warns her competitors to watch their backs when it comes to the acting challenges.

  3. Charlie Hides

    Charlie is the oldest contestant to compete in RuPaul’s Drag Race herstory. An established performer who splits her time between the USA and the UK, Charlie describes her comedy as “rude, crude and socially unacceptable.”

  4. Eureka

    Despite competing in over 100 pageants, Eureka doesn’t want to be characterized solely as a “pageant girl,” and she’s come ready to show off her many considerable talents. But the pageant system has certainly given her one trait – a fierce competitive nature.

  5. Farrah Moan

    Inspired by old school Vegas showgirls, it’s no surprise Farrah Moan is all about rhinestones, feathers, and showing a lot of skin.

  6. Jaymes Mansfield

    A campy queen from America’s Dairyland, Jaymes is inspired by Pee Wee Herman, Elvira, and of course her namesake Jayne Mansfield. Jaymes likes to think of herself as the “Swiss Army Knife” of drag – she’s a singer, seamstress, actor, dancer… even a puppeteer.

  7. Kimora Blac

    Kimora Blac is the definition of a bombshell. She is obsessed with strippers and cites Blac Chyna as “my girl.” Kimora likes to show off her body – particularly her famously enhanced butt.

  8. Nina Bo’nina Brown

    Nina’s drag style is pure fantasy, completely unique, and difficult to pin down – one day she’ll transform herself into a zombie, the next an alien. With such a strong aesthetic and sense of self, Nina’s sure to ruffle some feathers in the competition.

  9. Peppermint

    Sweet and sassy, Peppermint is the name on everybody’s lips in New York, where she can be found hosting and performing any given night of the week. Warm, funny and personable, Peppermint is guaranteed to charm the judges.

  10. Sasha Velour

    This quirky, bald, artistic queen describes herself as “intellectual – a thinking queen.” Named after a Russian feminist thinker, Sasha grew up in an unconventional household, where dinner table conversation with her professor father was feminism, gender performance, utopias and communism.

  11. Shea Couleé

    Shea Couleé describes herself as “a high-class supermodel that you don’t wanna f*** with.” She cites Naomi Campbell as her strongest inspiration, and went to school for costume design.

  12. Trinity Taylor

    A plastic surgery fan and fierce performer who commands the stage. She has won countless crowns on the pageant circuit, even beating fellow Drag Race girl Alyssa Edwards in one. Trinity is a former Miss Pulse—the Orlando nightclub which was the scene of the deadly mass shooting in June last year—and had performed at the nightclub the week before the attack.

  13. Valentina

    This Latina beauty hails from East Los Angeles, where she has only been doing drag for 10 months. But with a plethora of Latin influences – from telenovelas to the Miss Universe pageant – and an exceedingly polished look, this sassy young queen plans to scorch her competition.
