Plot Synopsis

Twelve drag queens, who previously appeared on one of the first four seasons of RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE, return to compete against each other as they lip-synch for their lives to determine which All-Star walks away with the $100,000 grand prize. The 12 queens entering the All-Star drag battle are: Ms. Congeniality winners Nina Flowers (Season 1), Pandora Boxx (Season 2), Yara Sofia (Season 3), and Latrice Royale (Season 4); Runners-Up Raven (Season 2), Manila Luzon (Season 3), and Chad Michaels (Season 4); Second Runners-Up Jujubee (Season 2) and Alexis Mateo (Season 3); and fan favorites Mimi Imfurst (Season 3), Tammie Brown (Season 1) and Shannel (Season 1). Each week, the judges tell contestants who will 'shante and stay' and who should 'sashays away.' The judging panel consists of RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Santino Rice and guest judges like Rosie Perez, Ross Mathews, Rachel Hunter, Vicki Lawrence, Busy Phillips, Rachel Dratch, Janice Dickinson, Wendi McClendon-Covey, Elvira, Beth Ditto and Cheri Oteri.
