RuPaul's Drag Race: Queen of Queens is an American reality competition television series produced by World of Wonder for VH1. The show is a spin-off of RuPaul's Drag Race that features the winners of the first 11 seasons of the show and the five winners of All Stars. RuPaul plays the roles of host, mentor, and source of inspiration for this series, as contestants are given different challenges each week. RuPaul's Drag Race employs a panel of judges, including RuPaul, Michelle Visage and a host of other guest judges, who critique contestants' progress throughout the competition.
For the first time ever, previous winners of RuPaul's Drag Race and RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars return to compete for the ultimate title of Queen of Queens.
In the mini challenge, each contestant is asked to perform a different task with varying requirements and time limitations. Certain mini challenges are repeated from season to season. The winner of a mini challenge is sometimes rewarded with some kind of advantage in the main challenge. Though most episodes have a mini challenge, select episodes do not and progress straight to the main challenge.
The requirements of the main challenge vary across each episode, and can be individual or group challenges. The winner of the main challenge also receives a cash prize of $5,000 for their win.
The goal of each main challenge involves a new theme and outcome. Contestants are often asked to design and construct a custom outfit, sometimes incorporating unconventional materials. Other challenges focus on the contestants' ability to present themselves on camera, perform with music, or perform humorously.
Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley are the staple judges alongside RuPaul. Visage joined the main show at the start of season 3, while Matthews and Kressley joined at the start of season 7, and each joins RuPaul and Visage on alternate episodes.
The judges each provide their opinion on the contestants' performances in the main challenge and on the runway before RuPaul announces which queen is the episode's winner and which two had the weakest performances. The day before judging, the contestants are all provided with a song by a female artist to which they must learn the lyrics. The contestants deemed as being the bottom two must "lip sync for their lives" to the song in a final attempt to impress RuPaul. In the regular series, after the lip sync, RuPaul alone decides who stays and who leaves. However, due to the high stakes of this season, all 4 judges vote on who should stay. If the vote goes to deadlock, the winner of the main challenge also gets a vote.
