Thirteen new queens – and one returning fan favorite – enter the NEW & IMPROVED workspace tonight! Who do YOU think has the charisma, uniqueness, sass, and talent to become America’s Next Drag Superstar?” Aquaria? Dusty Ray Bottoms? Kameron Michaels? Asia O’Hara? Blair St Clair? Kalorie Kardashian-Williams? Mayhem Miller? Mia Cracker? Monique Hart? Monet X Change? Vanessa Vanje Mateo? The Vixen? Yahua Yamasaki? or Eureka O’Hara?
In the season opener, Mama Ru gathers two dozen Drag Race alumni around the runway shortly before positioning returning competitor Eureka O’Hara at the center of the ring.
“It’s time to do the first challenge, and I see all these former queens. Immediately, my butthole has sucked up the crotch of my f*cking leotard,” O’Hara says in a confessional as she recalls seeing the likes of Jinkx Monsoon, Jiggly Caliente, Adore Delano, Laganja Estranja, Yara Sofia, Kim Chi, Raven, Manila Luzon, and freshly crowned All Stars 3 champion Trixie Mattel sizing her up as she struts past them.
“Notice any familiar faces?” RuPaul asks a visibly shaken O’Hara. “I’ve invited back some of my favorite queens from the past decade to help me judge this challenge. To win, you must slay the runway. Do whatever it takes to stand out from this legendary crowd.”
The camera then cuts to O’Hara’s perspective, and we catch a glimpse of favorite contenders Katya and Peppermint mean-mugging alongside Bob the Drag Queen, Detox, and Darienne Lake.
“I’m looking at all these faces of my peers. Clearly they’re judging the s—t out of me,” O’Hara squeals. “This is a lot of pressure on the first day. Season 10 ain’t playing, baby!”
