Returning to LOGO in February 2010, RuPaul's Drag Race promises the perfect blend of bitchery and glam. Sequins and feathers will be our ticket out of the winter doldrums, kittens. Since pre-judging is a tradition here at T Lo, let's all look at pictures and bios and paint wildly inaccurate assessments of the contestants, shall we? Okay!
28, San Juan, Puerto Rico - This spitfire with a heart of gold was cast after trouncing her competition in RuPaulCasting.com's online contest. A self-professed daydreamer, Jessica yearns to be a drag singer like her idol, RuPaul. But will her language skills impede her path to becoming America's Next Drag Superstar?
25, Boston MA - A dynamo and a delight, Jujubee is everyone's best friend. But don't you dare get it twisted; this Laotian Beantown queen will read you to filth if you cross her. A jack of all that is drag, Jujubee is a shoo-in to win the title yet, she struggles to stand out from the pack. Will she figure out a way to make the judges notice her?
28, Mira Loma, CA - Brash, confident and outspoken, this Scottish lass thinks, correction, knows she's America's Next Drag Superstar. And she's got the experience to back up her conviction: Morgan's a member of "The Dream Girls Review", the longest running drag show in Southern California. But will Miss McMichaels live up to the hype?
Mystique Summers Madison
25, Bedford, TX - This self-proclaimed "gown bitch" wants you to know that big girls can do everything skinny girls can -- and better. A buxom beauty, Mystique is proud to rep for full-figured queens everywhere and intends to nab the top prize no matter what it takes. That is, if she doesn't get in her own way first.
Nicole Paige Brooks
36, Atlanta, GA - Don't take it personal but this southern belle isn't interested in making friends. She's got one goal only: to stomp out the competition. And with fourteen years of drag experience under her thirty-inch belt, this mouthy queen just might pull it off.
37, Rochester, NY - The oldest queen in the competition, Pandora's humor and charm makes her this season's funny girl and a real contender for the top prize. But it's gonna take a lot more than comic chops for Miss Boxx to knockout her more glamorous rivals.
30, Riverside, CA - Striking, edgy and foul-mouthed, Raven will always tell you like it is and too bad if you don't like it. If she doesn't show the judges the softer side of Raven, however, she's going to have a tough time winning the competition.
29, New York, NY - Trained in Ballet, Jazz and Modern dance, this Harlem princess is determined to prance her way to the finish line. But will Her Regal-ness be able to let loose and prove there's more to her than the perfect pirouette?
Shangela Laquifa Wadley
28, Studio City, CA - This baby queen has only been doing drag for four months but you'd be a fool to underestimate her. With her eyes on the prize, Shangela is determined to show that experience is just a ten-letter word.
26, Atlanta, GA - Born and raised in a tiny Bible belt town, Sonique's a good 'ole Southern gal. But don't let her small town pedigree fool you, this former gymnast and stunning beauty has a few tricks up her tuck and she's not afraid to use them.
21, Falls Church, VA - This queen is serving up fish and "it ain't trout". Tatianna's undeniable beauty and killer bod are intimidating the hell out of her competition. But will her age and lack of experience hold her back from the prize she so desperately wants?
21, Orlando, FL - Tyra swears she's "America's Sweetheart" but you better watch your back 'cuz Miss Thing's objective is clear: obliterate and annihilate. This crafty queen knows how to work a runway and her competitors' nerves, and she'll stop at nothing to win.
