An ‘All Stars’ season with ‘Untucked’ pros!

Longtime fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race know that if you’re not watching Untucked, you’re only getting half the story. While that tagline does feel appropriate for most seasons, certain queens have truly emerged as Untucked superstars over the years.
From extremely candid moments to unforgettable fights to iconic confrontations, Untucked is the one-stop shop for queens to let their hair down and spill some hot scalding tea while waiting for the judges to deliberate. Much like Drag Race itself, Untucked has also snatched Emmy trophies for the quality content that it consistently delivers season after season.
We love to have themes in mind when fan-casting new seasons of All Stars, and a season full of Untucked superstars would absolutely deliver on the drama, the tears, the clapbacks, the catchphrases, and even the emotions for safe, perhaps!
Scroll through to check out our fan-casting of an Untucked stars season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, which is available for streaming on Paramount+.
We really miss when queens like Tatianna were bold enough to say “I don’t like you, I’m saying it to your face” right in front of Tyra Sanchez (now known as King Tyra), which created the first iconic Untucked moment in Drag Race herstory. Overall, Tatianna was reality TV gold during season two, and proved that she could also be a fierce competitor in a stacked cast like All Stars 2. If we were to do a season full of Untucked superstars, we absolutely would have to bring in Tatianna for the cast.
Between provoking Shangela to deliver the “I don’t have a sugar daddy” speech in season three and getting all of the queens relied up on All Stars 1, Mimi Imfurst is an absolute master at the art of producing great Untucked scenes. With so many years having gone by since her last appearance on Drag Race, maybe it’s time to bring Mimi back for fans to experience some old-school drag energy on the show once again.
Your tone seems very pointed right now. Willam is the ultimate Drag Race wildcard, which is why she’s so perfect for reality TV. Though she was disqualified during season four of the show, the reasons for that disqualification were certainly not that serious. We could totally see Willam coming back to compete on All Stars, and it would make for even better television if she was cast along with other Untucked legends.
Laganja Estranja (Season 6)
Laganja Estranja has come a long way since “feeling very attacked” in Untucked back on Drag Race season six. We really miss seeing Ms. Ganja on reality TV, and the time has come for her to compete during a season filled with other Untucked superstars. Not only has Laganja been putting in the work in the outside world, but her aesthetic glow-up and transition journey would also make for incredibly exciting and compelling television.
You’re perfect, you’re beautiful, you look like Linda Evangelista! It’s literally impossible to think of best Untucked moments without thinking about Aja. Not only was her Valentina rant an absolutely iconic moment in the series, but Aja consistently delivered honest, hilarious, and meme-worthy scenes in Untucked. Even coming back into All Stars 3, Aja kept up that energy and didn’t disappoint her fans at any point in time. Truth be told, we’d love to see her getting another shot at the crown.
The Vixen was involved in some of the most memorable Untucked moments in Drag Race herstory – whether to make herself heard in a fight with Eureka or trying to clear things up between Aquaria and Miz Cracker. Particularly in hindsight, many fans have thankfully come to the realization that The Vixen was making a very important point about how Black people are often misrepresented on reality TV. Furthermore, The Vixen gave us some great television in season 10, which absolutely lands her a spot in our imaginary season of All Stars featuring the queens of Untucked.
If she had to lip sync for her motherf*cking life, she was ready to do so! Silky Nutmeg Ganache gave us countless iconic moments throughout season 11 of Drag Race, and many of them took place in Untucked. The same took place when she returned for All Stars 6 and the first-ever Canada vs. the World season. Silky is a literal legend in the world of Drag Race, and she should absolutely be cast in a season of Untucked stars.
It’s a couple of you girls that Tamisha Iman doesn’t really care for, and it’s that level of honesty that made her such an Untucked superstar on Drag Race season 13. The fight between Kandy Muse and Tamisha Iman has already gone down in herstory, and even won an Emmy for Untucked in the category of Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program. That same year, Tamisha and Kandy also won the “Best Fight” trophy at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Jasmine Kennedie knows a thing or two about “this is your moment, have it” when it comes time to film a new dramatic episode of Untucked. Though season 14 didn’t have a lot of conflict, Jasmine gave us an iconic fight with Maddy Morphosis that generated several memes. Later in the season, Jasmine was also the protagonist of one of the most beautiful Untucked moments in Drag Race herstory when she disclosed that she’s a trans woman and thanked Kerri Colby for being an inspiration.
The most recent addition to the league of Untucked superstars is Mistress Isabelle Brooks, who insisted on keeping things “all tea no shade” throughout season 15 of Drag Race. Mistress was always down for some cutting up with her sisters, calling out people who were acting up, and expressing her honest opinions on the show. In many ways, Mistress gave us some great old-school Drag Race vibes – and that includes her moments in Untucked.
