Gentlemen, start your engines — and may the best woman win! The official cast lineup for Season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars was announced on Friday, Oct. 20, and we can’t wait to see this elite group of drag queens back on VH1's hit competition reality series. Here, Life & Style rounded up the former contestants (with the exception of one, who will be revealed at a later date) who RuPaul believes have the charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to take the crown.

The Brooklyn, NY, native is back to snatch everybody’s edges and take another shot at becoming America’s next drag superstar. “Are you gagged that I’m back? Because, b—h, I am gooped that I’m back,” Aja said about her return. “A lot of people are gonna ask me, like, ‘Why did you compete again?’ And, you know, maybe it’s because I didn’t do so well. Everything happens for a reason. Maybe I’ll come, maybe I’ll win, maybe I’ll slay. But I won’t know unless I play.”

BenDeLaCreme (Season 6)

The Seattle, WA, native — and former Miss Congeniality of Season 6 — is stoked to compete again on RPDR. “I think that I’m best known for my sense of camp, my exceptional good looks, and I’ll go with that twice because it’s really important” BenDeLaCreme said about her strong suits. “I’m exceptionally beautiful.”

Chi Chi Devayne (Season 8)

The Shreveport, LA, native is thrilled to bring her Southern charm back to Drag Race. “That’s right, I’m back, your Southern bayou princess Miss Chi Chi Devayne. Everybody knows me for my famous lip-syncs, ‘I’m Telling You,’ and a few more on top of that,” Chi Chi said of her memorable run on Season 8. “I’m a performing queen. I love to get on stage and burn it up. I have to be obedient to my fans and come on back and give ‘em everything that they want.”

Kennedy Davenport (Season 7)

The Dallas, TX, native can't wet to get her groove on when Drag Race returns for All Stars 3. “The dancing diva is back, honey! Kennedy Davenport, yaaasss,” she enthused. “I think Kennedy has grown more as far as drag is concerned. I’ve pushed the envelope a little bit more myself to be more creative. But I don’t think I’ve changed much — just changed in my mind to allow myself to grow more in female impersonation. I want to prove that I’m more than what people saw on Season 7.”

Milk (Season 6)

The NYC native, who was known to add a touch of masculinity to her drag looks, is looking forward to werking it again for RuPaul. “I think I’m most known for my strange looks from Season 6 of Drag Race,” the eccentric performer said. “Coming out pregnant, coming out as male RuPaul, [and] coming out with a beard, which inspired the bearded challenge of Season 7. The reason I wanted to come back on All Stars is I’ve transformed a lot since my season.”

Morgan McMichaels (Season 2)

The LA native and Season 2 standout is ready to give the younger girls a run for their money. “I’m back to slay the children!” she said. “From Season 2 until now, I’ve gotten a lot older, a lot fatter, and I use a lot more cosmetics. Oh, and my a– got bigger too! I was not really fazed that I was from a young season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I’ve been a bad b—h since the beginning, honey.”

Shangela (Seasons 2 and 3)

The Paris, TX, native is hoping the third time’s a charm! “Halleloo, I’m back – again! Yes, again,” she said. “I’m super proud to be known as the girl who keeps coming back in cardboard box. The fact that RuPaul trusted to bring me back on another season and allowed me to compete again, you know, I never wanted to let him down. Or any of the judges…I’m always working to prove that, you know what, Ru did not make a bad decision to bring me back from not one, but two seasons.”

Trixie Mattel (Season 7)

The LA-based queen — who is also a successful folk singer — is ready to grace us again with her Barbie-inspired aesthetic. “I’m the best drag folk musician, and the only drag folk musician,” she joked. “I think I’ve only fallen more and more in love, like delusional level, with Trixie Mattel…A lot of th girls here made it to the end of their season. I was kind of there for a second, but I did what anybody would do in a bad situation. You get up, you dust yourself off, and you leech off your famous friend Katya.”

Thorgy Thor (Season 8)

The Brooklyn, NY, native is back for another round of Drag Race — and she knows the stakes are high. “I did not come here to win Season 8, and not that it was my downfall, because I think I’ve proven I’m really good at drag…I really love drag, I love inspiring people, and I really love making friends with sisters — and then I got eliminated,” she said. “[This time], I just wanna last as long as I did before, if not top three.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3 will premiere this winter on VH1.
