With the amazing success of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 2, it is pretty imminent that RuPaul and LOGO will be doing a 3rd season over the next year or two (hopefully next year, god willing). With the major shift in eliminations, strategy became a big factor into advancing in the competition, challenges and more, this season became the best one yet, and we can’t wait to see what they have in stores for All Stars 3.
When we did our predictions for Season 2, we were pretty good at determining who would come back, so hopefully the list we are creating for All Stars 3 actually comes true! Here are the candidates we think deserve a shot at their legacy and crown for the next season! Who do YOU think deserves to come back?
Ongina- Season 1
Something that I am glad All Stars 2 did was bring back someone from a super early season in Tatianna. It helped her out massively by bringing a whole new audience to her amazing character, and there are others that definitely deserve that. Ongina deserves to have a breath of fresh air pushed into her career by being on All Stars 3, mainly because she killed it in Season 1 and should’ve went further than she did (5th place). She would definitely be a huge force to be reckoned with as her original style, fun personality and vivacious presence could catapult her all the way to the throne.
Laganja Estranja- Season 6
I’ll be honest, when I saw Adore come through the doors of All Stars 2… I was confused. She didn’t need the show as she already proved her stardom as a dominating force in the music industry. Seeing as a theme in both All Star seasons was “redemption”, I figured the one person out of everyone on S6 that needed it was Laganja. Since her season, Laganja has confessed her reasons for portraying her over the top character, and has come out of it a more fully realized person. Her coming back onto the show based on this could do her really well in the long run, and make people forget about the frustrating character she created a couple of years back.
Tempest Dujour- Season 7
I’ve expressed multiple times how much I thought Season 7 was a legit drag, as there were a ton of very boring queens that made it way further than they should’ve. Tempest did not deserve to go home first, it should’ve been Kandy and that array of ridiculous colors that were painted on her face. Tempest would’ve done amazing in the acting challenges and “Snatch Game” and if there was ever a queen to go home first and redeem themselves, its her.
Darienne Lake- Season 6
Similar to Laganja, I think Darienne got a bad rap as a lot of people think she made it further than she should’ve, in particular with beating BenDeLaCreme. On the contrary, Darienne is a funny bitch and a fantastic performer that just happened to be somewhat outshined in a season with a killer final 3. I think a good reintroduction to Darienne in All Stars 3 would give her a much needed boost outside of the Ben debacle.
Trixie Mattel- Season 7
If you are going to bring Katya back for AS2, you gotta bring back her hilarious counterpart. Trixie and Katya are somewhat like the New Raven/JuJuBee, in that the play very well off each other in terms of fashion and comedy. One of the most beloved queens to ever come from this show, Trixie was one of the first queens to ever inspire a hashtag after her first elimination. The producers seemed to know what they were doing as she was brought back only a couple of weeks later, and broke the curse of girls coming back for only on episode and made it quite far. She deserves another shot, its a no brainer.
Kim Chi- Season 8
I think Kim should come back for a couple of reasons. One- she was somewhat robbed of the title in S8. Two- I just want to see more of her amazing fashions and amazing shade. Three- she’s besties with Trixie, which could play a great part in the competition mode. Yay.
Shangela- Season 3
Because, 4th time is a charm right? I just want to see her come out of the box again. And yes, having her back would make for great TV. Halleloo!
