RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Twist: Who Are the Lip Sync Assassins?

The trailer for the much anticipated RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 has been released and with it came the reveal of a shocking twist.

The trailer for the much anticipated RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 5 has been released and with it came the reveal of a shocking twist. On June 5, drag queens from previous seasons will return to the Drag Race Werk Room to take a second (or third) shot at getting a crown.

Last week, VH1 revealed the cast list by airing the first 10 minutes of All Stars 5. The show also announced it would no longer be moving to the Showtime. After seeing the list of returning girls for this season of All Stars, fans had mixed reactions online. There are some returning favorites from early seasons like Ongina, JujuBee and Alexis Mateo. Plus two heavy hitters from recent seasons: Mz. Cracker and Shea Coulee. The response to the other half of the cast list was tepid until the trailer dropped, revealing the ultimate All Stars twist. There are several more drag queens returning as Lip Sync Assassins.

The shocking format shake-up for this season of All Stars is that the winner of each episode will face off against a lip sync assassin. A drag queen from a previous season who is not a cast member on All Stars 5 will return for only one episode. The rules have been that the winner of the lip sync eliminates one of the queens in the competition. It is still unclear if that rule is in effect or if the lip sync assassin will play a part in eliminating the queens in the bottom. The lip sync assassins themselves are also still a secret, but we have some theories.

If the show is pulling in true lip-sync assassins, we expect to see Alyssa Edwards dancing the house down, Kameron Michaels side-splitting up a storm and Brooklyn Heights pulling out her point shoes. It would also be very fun to see Tatianna back on screen after her legendary All Stars 2 lip sync. If these are the queens with the addition of Trinity K Bonnet and possibly even Sasha Velour, then we will see true lip-sync assassins returning. But it is possible that the term lip-sync assassin is being used loosely. Perhaps they are calling Asia O'Hara a lip sync assassin because she murdered those butterflies. Fans of the show on Reddit have theories about what defines a true lip sync assassin.

Whether we see true lip sync assassins or just girls who want to return to TV, it is a very smart change that this All Stars spin-off was begging for and it certainly sweetens the pot of this otherwise only mildly exciting cast. The preview is thrilling and this shake-up hopefully means we are in for another amazing season.
