WATCH: Who are the stars of the re-vamped ‘Secret Celebrity Drag Race’? We have theories!
All Stars with some fresh fillers and a new set of pearly-white veneers, RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race is back this summer looking better than ever.In spring of 2020, the franchise spin-off made a fun if conceptually confused debut, in which trios of celebrities (Vanessa Williams and Loni Love among them) were given drag makeovers by queens, and then asked to compete in classic one-off challenges, like Snatch Game or the Rusical.The idea behind things being “secret” was flimsy at best given the contestants “RuVealed” themselves at the episode’s outset, but, hey, it was early on in the pandemic and we were happy for another diversion.This August, the format gets a revamp (a RuVamp???), taking a page from The Masked Singer to ensure that the “secret” stays in Secret Celebrity Drag Race. As a brand-new trailer details, 9 stars will compete in “the ultimate lip-sync showdown,” undergoing drag transformations while keeping their identities hush-hush.These stars are sitting on a secret! ? ?
