YAS MAMA! 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Adds a $50,000 Fan Vote to Season 8
Mama Ru said, "Why give away just one crown, when we can give away two?"
On the upcoming eighth season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, in addition to the winner taking home a gag-worthy grand prize of $200,000 and a coveted spot in the "Drag Race Hall of Fame," queens will also be vying for a second prize of $50,000. The $50K payout will be awarded by the fans along with the title "Queen of the Fame Games."
We've got some questions:
What are the Fame Games on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars?
The details regarding this new twist are all still a bit murky, but the eliminated queens will be competing amongst themselves for a second prize of $50,000. Each week they'll get a chance to show their runways, ask fans to vote for them, and perhaps more during Untucked. Then fans will vote and the winner will be awarded the prize. Mama Ru loves to spice things up, so you can be sure it will be more complicated, but those are the bare bones. Basically, it's a chance for our favorite queens to still appear each week even as they're eliminated.
Where do I watch the Fame Games on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars?
The Fame Games portion of the show will air each week on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Untucked which like the regular franchise will be available on Paramount+
How to vote in RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars?
How fans vote, when they vote, and how much they can vote still hasn't been announced, but I assume it will be some kind of electronic voting via social media, texting, or the website as shows like Dancing with the Stars and American Idol use.
