Are you ready heeeeeeeenny?
It’s only been eight months since Trixie Mattel snatched the crown on All Stars 3, yet Mama Ru is bringing back some more fan-favourites to showcase their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
We’ve scoured the internet for every possible queen on the fourth highly-anticipated series. It’s completely speculative, and is based off social media activity, cancelled gigs etc.
Reddit also seems to have come to the same conclusion, and they’re all drag detectives, so, we believe it.
Manila Luzon (Season 3 and All Stars 1)
Original placement: Runner-up (Season 3), 7th/8th (All Stars 1)
Manila Luzon ranked second on the show’s third season, behind drag veteran and runway slayer Raja. Fun fact: Manila and Raja are the only top two in the whole series to have the same statistics. Three wins, one bottom two placement and one low placement, so it really could’ve gone either way. Yes, Manila competed on All Stars 1, but was completely fucked by the ridiculous teams twist. If she acted alone, she probably could’ve snatched the crown.
Evidence: No upcoming gigs and she cancelled a show. Active on social media but it’s presumed her husband has taken over. Phi Phi O’Hara also confirmed that previous All Stars contestants have been brought back.
Latrice Royale (Season 4 and All Stars 1)
Original placement: 4th (Season 4), 7th/8th (All Stars 1)
Latrice Royale is one of the most beloved queens in Drag Race HERstory. During season four, she proved to be one of the funniest contestants, and tightest lip-syncers, boasting several iconic showdowns with queens such as Dida Ritz and Kenya Michaels. Like Manila, she appeared on All Stars 1, but was shafted by the format. Ever since, fans have been championing for a third appearance from the large, in-charge, chunky and funky performer.
Evidence: Latrice has no upcoming gigs and has been absent from social media. And again: Phi Phi O’Hara confirmed that previous All Stars contestants have been brought back.
Gia Gunn (Season 6)
Original placement: 10th
Despite only coming in tenth place, Gia Gunn became one of the most quotable contestants ever. Her back-and-forths with the other contestants, such as Joslyn Fox, Laganja Estranja and Bianca Del Rio were hilare, and her entrance into the werk room was truly iconic. Since her season six stint, Gia bravely came out as transgender.
Evidence: No upcoming shows, no social media activity. A designer from Drag Race’s ninth and tenth season also confirmed that All Stars 4 features a trans contestant. However, Gia j
Jasmine Masters (Season 7)
Original placement: 12th
Jasmine Masters wasn’t well-received during her season seven stint, but has become legendary amongst Drag Race fans for her hilarious videos and Instagram lives. Will we see her emerge from a cocoon once more?
Evidence: Jasmine cancelled all her gigs in Australia, has none upcoming and is completely silent on social media.
Naomi Smalls (Season 8)
Original placement: Runner-up
Naomi Smalls didn’t make much of an impression on season eight until she showcased her sewing abilities for the Wizard of Oz challenge. Afterwards, she made her mark on the show and emerged as one of the most sicken’ing runway kweenz. She eventually placed as joint runner-up with Kim Chi behind Bob the Drag Queen, who neither of them had any chance against.
Evidence: Cancelled a gig, has none upcoming and hasn’t been active on social media.
Farrah Moan (Season 9)
Original placement: 8th
Farrah Moan sulked 783 times on the show’s ninth season, and became a meme queen because of it. We’ve all used that gif of her crying after Eureka’s disqualification haven’t we? Even though she didn’t win any challenges, Farrah has become one of the most followed stars on Instagram, with nearly 800,000 followers. The fishy queen also made a comeback for the season 10 premiere as a judge, because she’s that beloved! Look at our picture of her, doesn’t she look fieeeeeerce?
Evidence: Cancelled a gig, with none upcoming. She also hasn’t posted on Instagram since 5 July. Not like Farrah.
Valentina (Season 9)
Original placement: 7th
Miss Congeniality. Fan-favourite. Yup, it’s Valentina! This controversial queen was killing the competition until her lip-sync in the ninth episode against Nina Bonina Brown, when she defied Mama Ru and refused to take her mask off. She was then the main focus in the season nine reunion, when nearly every single queen came for her “fake” personality. Valentina could’ve reached top three – had she learned her mother-tucking words – so we can see her as a front-runner for the crown.
Evidence: She was confirmed to appear thanks to a leaked press release for Fox’s upcoming live television adaptation of Rent. See the details here.
Trinity Taylor (Season 9)
Original placement: 3rd/4th
Trinity could’ve taken the crown. She really could’ve. The Alabama queen showcased an equal amount of glamour and comedy, and managed to land three challenge wins, more than season nine winner Sasha Velour. In the finale, she ranked 3rd/4th after losing a killer lip-sync to Peppermint, who came prepared with several iconic reveals. This time, you know she’ll come prepared…
Evidence: No upcoming gigs, no social media activity.
Monique Heart (Season 10)
Original placement: 8th
Like Valentina, Monique Heart could’ve gone much further on her season had she learned the words. However, she completely embodied charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, and was a stronger performer than most on her season. If she does appear, we expect her to know her Carly Rae Jepsen, and to step it up in the lewks department, because henny didn’t come prepared the first time…
Evidence: She cancelled her UK gigs, with none on the horizon. She’s also been absent on social media.
Monét X Change (Season 10)
Original placement: 6th
Monét X Change was the lip-sync assassin of season 10. Kameron may have defeated her and won more lip-syncs, but Monét embodied every single song and served some of the most iconic performances ever. That fake jump split in Pound the Alarm? Ooh honey! Like Monique, she embodies C.U.N.T, and if she wants to win, all she needs to do is tone down the pussycat wigs.
Evidence: Monét didn’t show up for any of her scheduled gigs, and cancelled all her UK shows. And again, she hasn’t been active on social media.
