RuPaul talks with ET Online and talks about revisiting the season that started it all! RuPaul’s Drag Race: The Lost Season Ru-Vealed premieres September 30 at 9PM on Logo.
ETonline: What made you decide to give the fans another look at season one?
RuPaul: It was truly by popular demand. The fact we shoot the show once a year, we wanted to fill the gap and satiate the appetite of our loyal fans because a lot of people came on board later. I mean, people are still now just discovering the show.
ETonline: What was it like going back and rewatching the first season given how much the show has changed?
RuPaul: Obviously the first season didn’t have the budget to be as glossy and shiny as it is today. We had just enough money for that jar of Vaseline for the lens. But it’s funny to see how certain ideas, which are huge components of the show now, have their origins in that season. There are glimpses of what the show has become in the first season, and it’s interesting to see how they were peeking their heads out from day one.
