6 Hilarious “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Celeb Impressions

Nobody loves a twist like RuPaul.

RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race, premiering August 12 on VH1, is upping the ante for season two in a major way. 

The first season of the show, which premiered in April 2020, featured celebrities like Madison Beer, Phoebe Robinson and Dustin Milligan entering the Werk Room to compete with their identities fully known. 

Season two is throwing all of that out of the window.

“Filmed in front of a live studio audience, nine celebrities from all walks of life have agreed to leave their famous identities behind as they fully embrace the miracle of drag,” the network revealed. “It will be kept secret who each contestant is until they are asked to sashay away, allowing viewers to focus on their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.”

Each week, the celebrities will be tasked with undergoing complete drag transformations to compete in “the ultimate lip sync showdown based on a new category until one of them is crowned America’s Next Celeb Drag Superstar and awarded $100,000 for their favorite charity.”

The celebrities will be made over and mentored by Drag Race legends Monét X Change, Brooke Lynn Heights and Jujubee and the season will feature appearances from Eureka, Gottmik, Katya, Morgan McMichaels, Silky Nutmeg Ganache and Violet Chachki.

RuPaul returns as host alongside Drag Race mainstays Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews as judges. 

The trailer teased the prospect of seeing some household names like we’ve never seen them before.

“People have always known who I am,” one mysterious celebrity said in the trailer. “I can’t hide. This is a new discovery for me.”

Let the guessing games begin!

RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race premieres August 12 at 8 p.meters. on VH1.
