The Las Vegas queen, the fifth-place finisher in 2016, has made a name for herself as a Britney Spears impersonator.
India Ferrah (Season 3)

India was infamously picked up and (wo)manhandled by fellow queen Mimi Imfurst in the bottom competitors’ lip-sync challenge in Episode 3 that season. She was sent home in Episode 4.
Jujubee (Season 2)

The Boston performer finished in third place in the show’s second year; she also returned for the premiere season of All-Stars.
Mariah Paris Balenciaga (Season 3)

The Gainesville, Georgia, native was eliminated one week after fellow competitor India Ferrah was kicked off “Drag Race” in Season 3.
Mayhem Miller (Season 10)

Mayhem finished in 10th place that season; she was eliminated in Episode 5 after a lip-sync battle against NYC queen Monét X Change.
Miz Cracker (Season 10)

Miz Cracker, who was eliminated in Episode 11, was among the Season 10 queens based in NYC, and is my personal favorite.
Ongina (Season 1)
Twitter: @Ongina | Instagram: @Ongina
The bald-headed competitor came out as HIV-positive in the show’s premiere season. She once lived in New York and worked at drag restaurant Lucky Cheng’s alongside Orange Is the New Black alum Laverne Cox.
Shea Couleé (Season 9)

Shea finished in third/fourth place in the 2017 season. She portrayed Naomi Campbell in a “Snatch Game” challenge that year, an impersonation that got some love from the supermodel herself on Twitter.
Just like Latrice Royale and Manila Luzon from All Stars Season 4, this will be Alexis Mateo’s second time on All-Stars after competing in the first season.
Not only were the new set of girls revealed, but RuPaul teased that this new season will be truly unhinged: “For All-Stars 5, we’ve come up with a new twist that is so twisted it’s guaranteed to twist your twisted minds,” said Ru. They’ll compete each week in a series of makeover challenges in hopes of sashaying into the “Drag Race Hall of Fame” and taking home a $100,000 cash prize.
