Kim Chi was by far one of the most creative queens in Drag Race herstory, and we think she still has plenty of epic looks that she could grace the All Stars 5 stage with.
Nina Bo’Nina Brown
Although this Season nine queen irked a few of the other competitors with her often can’t-do attitude, she had some killer looks. Remember when she literally turned herself into a peach? We think there is definitely some untapped potential there!
Eureka O’Hara has already competed in RuPaul’s Drag Race twice, appearing in season nine and making the final three in season ten, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to see the self-proclaimed ‘Elephant Queen’ back with a vengeance in All Stars 5.
No relation to Eureka, Asia O’Hara also made it all the way to the end in season ten before placing fourth in the live grand finale. We think she has some redeeming to do after that butterfly disaster. Ergo, All Stars 5.
Many people believe Shea Coulee was ROBBED of her season nine crown, so there’s no reason to doubt that she would be a fierce All Star.
Kameron Michaels is arguably the queen of lip-syncs, surviving four of them in season ten. We can totally imagine this muscle queen lipsyncing for her legacy in All Stars 5. She had killer looks, plus we totally crushed on her out of drag.
You may have not expected this one, but we think Charlie is a classic queen and we would be lying if we said our hearts were not breaking for her when she accepted defeat during her lipsync against Nina Bo’Nina Brown in season nine. Maybe we’ll see this London queen make her return in the UK version of Drag Race!
Peppermint is a fierce queen and the lipsync in which she lost out on the crown to Sasha Valour was epic! If we’re being honest, we’ll be pretty triggered if she never returns for an All Stars.
Although we’re pretty confident this will never happen because of all of the shade thrown at Mama Ru by Willam, we can still dream! Willam was cut from season four way before her time because she broke those damn rules, but she is a force to be reckoned with and this would make for some really good watching!
Let’s face it, Acid Betty was a stone cold bitch in season eight. But we can’t deny that her looks were killer and she wasn’t a queen to be messed with. If she came back for All Stars 5, you can guarantee that she would not mess around when it came to snatching that place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
Season six was arguably the most talented season in Drag Race herstory, with competitors like Bianca Del Rio, Courtney Act and Adore Delano who have all gone on to become superstars. Darienne Lake was a fierce competitor and just missed out on the final three, but we think it’s about time she returns to have another go at stealing that crown.
Wake up, Pearl! All Stars 5 needs you! Like Willam, Pearl has some drama with RuPaul, so this is a bit of a pipe dream. But she turned out some incredible looks on season seven and we really enjoyed seeing her personal growth during the competition. Now that she has realised her bad bitch status, we would love to see her return, fully alert and awake, focused on getting that crown.
Jaidynn Dior Fierce
Unpopular opinion: I was totally here for Jaidynn Dior Fierce’s Snatch Game when she did That’s So Raven in season seven. She’s a queen that many people might not remember, but All Stars 5 would be a chance for her to shine!
