RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars is back once again with season 9. It will feature 8 well-versed queens from seasons 1 to 14 of RuPaul's Drag Race, who will steal the stage yet again with their talent and expertise.

Viewers will be graced with season 9 from May 17 onwards, after which, new episodes of the show will come out every Friday on Paramount+. The prize money of $200,000 this season comes with a twist. Instead of getting to take it home, the winner of the amount will have to choose a charity they want the money donated to.

With a great cause at its helm, RuPaul's Drag Race season 9 will air alongside the Untucked version of the same show.

The 8 queens from RuPaul's Drag Race All-Star season 9

1) Angeria Paris VanMichaels (Season 14)

Angeria made a mark with her entree in season 14 of RuPaul's Drag Race. On her journey to the finale, she won two main challenges and then was tied as the third runner-up of the show.

On All-Stars season 9, Angeria is representing the National Black Justice Collective, an association empowering the Black LGBTQ+ community, including people with HIV/AIDS.

2) Jorgeous (Season 14)

Like her co-star Angeria, Jorgeous also tied with another contestant in the sixth place during her season of RuPaul's Drag Race. She has also appeared on RDR Live, a show based in Las Vegas.

On All-Stars season 9, she is going to fight to win money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, an organization centered on improving the nation's mental health by going to the grassroots level.

3) Gottmik (Season 13)

Gottmik quickly gained attention on social media for being the first trans man on the show. Remembered for his impression of Paris Hilton, Gottmik secured third place in season 13.

On season 9 of All-Stars, Gottmik is playing for Trans Lifeline. It's a hotline that helps with advocacy, financial help, and emotional support to trans people in need.

4) Plastique Tiara (Season 11)

Even though Plastique Tiara was sent home in the eighth position on her season of the show, she was able to gather a social media following higher than anyone on the show. She has more than 11.6 million followers on TikTok according to Variety.
