RuPaul's Drag Race will return
to all-gay cabler Logo for a third season in January.
“RuPaul is back for a third season to
decide who will 'shante! stay!' or 'sashay away' with a new batch of
the nation's hottest, most glamorous drag queens,” the network said
in a press release. “Wigs will fly and drama will run high as the
contestants bring their over-the-top attitudes to the drag battle
royale that is RuPaul's Drag Race.”
RuPaul unleashed his first search for
America's next superstar drag queen two years ago. After crowning
two queens, and upping the number of contestants from 9 to 12,
America's first drag queen superstar is ready for a third go-around.

Race Tour, a lifetime supply of Kryolan Professional Make-up and a
cash prize of $75,000.
