First Aired 2/25/2014

Just when you thought you knew what to expect from RuPaul’s Drag Race, along comes the ferociously fabulous and funny Season Six, with enough tricks up its silk chiffon sleeve to keep you on your painted toes! This crop of queens is our most diverse yet, from seasoned pros, to an international drag star, to a former American Idol contestant, and even some fresh-faced ingénue queens who were inspired to be drag performers by watching Season One of RuPaul’s Drag Race! That’s one leggy legacy. Have we mentioned that these boys are hot? Because they are. Have we mentioned they make even hotter women? Because they do.
