But, she ALREADY is an All-Star! She WON Season Five of the main show?!?!!!!??!!!
Sigh. But, competitive reality television programs LOVE any ability to squeeze more product/money out of a franchise so…there’s that. And, RuPaul desperately needs that money to keep her well stocked in foundation and concealer…so much to conceal!
Yes, Jinkx Monsoon and 7 other WINNERS of various iterations of the Drag Race empire will compete against each other in RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars Season 7 starting May 20th on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada (and, available to watch on World of Wonder’s app.
And, the other 7 are all winners too including fan favorite (who we also adore) Raja from Season 3 and then a bunch of other hobags from seasons we didn’t bother to watch.
The full list via the press release:
JAIDA ESSENCE HALL (Winner, Season 12)

The queen of the queerdos is back to fly her freak flag and prove she’s the Queen of All Queens. Season 11’s eclectic winner stole our hearts and blew our minds with her own brand of drag fabulosity! Now, she’s here to even the odds and take home another crown!
Paramount+ and parent company Viacom who also own VH1 which shows the regular never ending version of RPDR and production company World of Wonder are making a BIG ASS deal out of this “Queen of Queens” show. There will be an ass ton of “specials” leading up to the actual series including an extended sneak peek on the final episode of the seemingly never ending Season 14 of RPDR on Friday, April 22nd. THEN…
Leading up to the premiere on Paramount+, VH1 will air COUNTDOWN TO ALL STARS 7: YOU’RE A WINNER BABY, a four-episode special where fan-favorite queens from RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE watch and react to the queens from RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS season seven’s very best moments. The dolls are offering their funniest and juiciest commentary all while fangirling out for our herstoric all winners season. COUNTDOWN TO ALL STARS 7: YOU’RE A WINNER BABY will air Friday, April 29 and Friday, May 20 (8:00 PM, ET/PT) as well as on the official RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE YouTube account.
It’s all so exhausting.
But, we’ll be rooting for Jinkx and Raja! We like them both! There’s a rumor that they don’t send anyone home every week…in other words, all 8 will be present to compete in every episode to the very end but the same site who made that claim also stated that Bianca DelRio would be in the 2nd series of this format of “Queen of All Queens” and THAT ain’t never happening…well, unless they paid her a shit ton of money.
Also, we’re concerned about our Jinkxie…she has fierce competition here! Now, none of these bitchez can compete with Ms Monsoon when it comes to comedy or live performance but when it comes to style/runway and (boring) traditional lip sync shit, she could be in danger.
And, why do this show and mess with your legacy as a winner?
Oh….the winner gets $200k.
