‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’: Judge Michelle Visage Previews Season 13 Surprises

RuPaul's Drag Race

Glitz! Glamour! VH1 rings in 2021 with a whole new crop of queens competing for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” in RuPaul’s Drag Race.

While longtime judge Michelle Visage (above, second from left, with Ross Mathews, RuPaul, Jamal Sims, and Carson Kressley last season) is tight-lipped when it comes to specifics for Round 13, she says it will feel like a family affair.

COVID-19 restrictions resulted in the Emmy-winning show limiting its guest judges to what she calls “franchise favorites,” adding, “The people who did come and participate — it was so fun and so intimate.”

One thing remains the same: RuPaul still has the undisputed last word on which contestants sashay away. That will result in at least one major shake-up, Visage teases.

“That’s Ru. He likes to keep everyone on their toes. But just remember, I’m telling you, you will not see this one coming!”
