January 5, 2018 1:19 PM - Season 3 (Full Season) - Subscribe

The trailer for All Stars Season 3 has been released, revealing this season's cast (well, all but one of them). Pre-season hype and speculation goes here! No spoilers, please.

The cast so far:
  • Aja: Season 9, 9th place
  • Kennedy Davenport: Season 7, 4th place
  • Chi Chi DeVayne: Season 8, 4th place
  • Ben Delacreme: Season 6, 5th place (Miss Congeniality)
  • Trixie Mattel: Season 7, 6th place
  • Shangela: Seasons 2 and 3, 12th and 6th place
  • Thorgy Thor: Season 8, 6th place
  • Milk: Season 6, 9th place
  • Morgan McMichaels: Season 2, 8th place
Plus a mystery 10th queen!

HOW DOPE IS THIS TRAILER. Ben, Trixie, and Morgan are killing it. I've also so pumped for Shangela's return -- her beat and look have come so far since Season 3 and those were really her main weak points.

I'm also really happy that the cast is pretty diverse and not just a do-over of a particular season like All Stars 2. While I think Trixie is basically guaranteed Top 3 given her success off the show and I think she's the favorite to win, I also think it's not as much of a pre-ordained conclusion this time: Ben, Chi Chi, Shangela, and Trixie in particular all seem like pretty plausible winners with satisfying story arcs to me, and maybe also Kennedy if she shows a bit more versatility. (As soon as Alaska was cast in AS2 I knew she was going to win, even pre-spoilers...)

Bob the Drag Queen's win was well-deserved, but Chi Chi will always be first in my heart.

Milk was ahead of her time, and would have gone further in a later season. I'll admit I wasn't her biggest fan, but I'm excited to she what she brings this time. Is Thorgy back to be the villain? And CHI CHI is the winner of all seasons. In my heart.

Dang that is a good combo. Everyone that would have been on my personal list is there. Glad to see Milk continuing to do Milk.

I have a mighty need to see Chi Chi and Kennedy lipsync against each other.

My hoped for top three - Chi Chi, Ben Delacreme and Trixie

My hoped for Tatiana edit - Morgan (i.e. bringing an earlier season Queen to the attention of newer fans)

My hoped for win - Trixie

the 10th Queen - I've heard the rumors and I'm ambivalent about it....

Cannot wait. Winter's slow cold march of despair is killing my soul. I need this to recharge my LOIFE.

IT'S HAPPENING. (I will be late to the FanFare discussion because I'm watching it with friends on Saturday, if I can possibly wait that long...)

Oh wow! (Is there a thread for the first ep yet? Because 10th Queen!!!!!)

I came in wanting Trixie to win, but somehow Aja has already won me over! (But well, ok, yes pls 10th Queen win!)
