Brittany's been a huge fan of RuPaul's Drag Race since the show premiered in '09, and she's proudly re-watched every season multiple times!

10 Fierce Queens That We Need to See on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars!
10 Fierce Queens That We Need to See on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars!

We've had eleven seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race since 2009, and an amazing 126 queens have appeared on the show since then. Even with four seasons of All Stars having aired, we've still barely scratched the surface of fierce drag queens who deserve another chance on the show and a place in Drag Race Hall of Fame.

I've picked out 10 of the best queens for a future season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars.

Author's Note: while there are certainly more than 10 queens who deserve to be on this list, I thought I'd start with 10 and update the list when some of these queens inevitably make it on Season 5 of All Stars. Stay tuned!

1. Ongina

Can Season 1 Queen, Ongina, return for RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars?
Can Season 1 Queen, Ongina, return for RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars?

Ongina was the original Drag Race queen serving bald looks on the runway, way before we had even heard of Sasha Velour. Ongina is a Season 1 queen, and she was a forced to be reckoned with in her season; she had two wins and was an early contender for the overall winner of the show. Ongina also opened up to the cast and the world about her HIV positive status in the most touching moment of Season 1.

It'd be amazing to see Ongina back in All Stars. Her gender-bending drag style might've been too outside of the box for Season 1, but I see her as a pioneer for more avant-garde drag styles on the show and I think she'd slay the competition if she returned!

2. Mariah

Many fans would love to see Mariah on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars!

Balenciaga! Mariah was one of the original "look" queens to be on Drag Race, all the way back in Season 3. Though she ended up placing 9th in her season, she still proved herself as a fierce queen with her unclockable mug and her sassy attitude (who can forget her moments in Untucked?).

It'd be amazing to see how Mariah has refined her drag in the in the nine years since her run on Drag Race. She's always had the mug, but has she elevated the rest of her performance skills to make her a contender for All Stars? I think so!

3. Trinity K. Bonet

Could Trinity K. Bonet snatch the All Stars crown?
Could Trinity K. Bonet snatch the All Stars crown?

Okay, so I'm skipping all the way forward to a Season 6 queen now, but to be fair, we've had plenty of Season 4 and 5 Queens on Drag Race.

A more than worthy competitor would be miss Trinity K. Bonet, who was the biggest improvement over Season 6; remember, she is the Queen who inspired Ru's famous, "I'm so proud to see it" quote, after Trinity overcame her "inner saboteur." Anyway, besides moving Ru to tears, Trinity was well known for serving stunning looks and being the lip sync assassin of her season (in case you forgot it, check out her iconic lip sync to"Whatta Man" below.)

I'm sure Trinity's only gotten better since her run on Drag Race, and it'd be amazing to see what she can show us now!

4. April Carrion

Is April Carrion the next queen to enter the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Hall of Fame?
Is April Carrion the next queen to enter the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Hall of Fame?

It always felt like April Carrion left the show way too soon; she was one of my favourites at the start of Season 6 and I was gutted when she was eliminated after the 4th episode. This Puerto Rican queen was not only stunning, she also served up amazing runway looks (I'm still gagging over that gorgeous umbrella runway) and seemed like a complete sweetheart off stage.

I'd love to see April return to All Stars. I genuinely feel like she has so much to show and give (she even continued to post her Season 6 runway looks on Instagram after her elimination), and would have a good shot of nabbing the Drag Race crown.

5. Miss Fame

Miss Fame is already slaying the runway; can she slay the competition in a season of All Stars?

Miss Fame was another queen I honestly thought had a chance of winning; at the start of Season 7, I pegged her as being at least Top 3, and it was too bad to see that she didn't quite live up to the expectations. She still is one of the most gorgeous queens on any season of Drag Race, and if you don't believe me, have a look at her at Paris Fashion Week 2019, below.

I'd LOVE to see Miss Fame on All Stars. Despite no challenge wins, she still placed high in three challenges, and made it to 7th place in Season 7. She could definitely kill it on the runway, just as she did before, but I'm sure she's polished her other skills since leaving the show.

6. Pearl

Pearl may not have the fondest memories of her time on Drag Race, but would she come back for All Stars?
Pearl may not have the fondest memories of her time on Drag Race, but would she come back for All Stars?

Pearl made it all the way to the Top 3, and definitely had a good chance of winning Season 7. Her looks were impeccable, and though she wasn't always the strongest in the challenges (but I blame that on the fact that Season 7 was SO acting challenge heavy), she showed plenty of uniqueness ("Flazéda") and nerve ("Do I have something on my face?") to make her a queen we couldn't soon forget.

I'll be completely honest in saying that I'm not sure if Pearl would want to come back to All Stars; she made some unfavourable comments last year about her experience on the show when the cameras were off. I'd like to think that she'd come back to please us fans, though, because I'm sure we'd all love to see what she'd turn out for an All Stars season!

7. Kim Chi

Do-nut come for Kim Chi in a season of All Stars!

Kim Chi was, without a doubt, the most talented make-up artist of Season 8. She always managed to paint AMAZING mugs and pull together stunning runway looks. If you're still doubting her ability to paint, have a look at the above photo (which is one photo, not two!) or the video below of her runway looks from Season 8. Kim Chi's talent was enough to earn her a well-deserved spot in the finale.

I'd say Kim Chi's a no-brainer for a future season of All Stars, I'm willing to go as far as to guess we'll see her in Season 5, in fact. She's a fan favourite, highly talented, and definitely has what it takes to win.

8. Nina Bo'nina Brown

Fans are dying to see Nina return to All Stars!

If Kim Chi was the make-up maven of Season 8, Nina Bo'Nina (Banana Fofana Osama Bin Laden) Brown was easily the make-up maven of Season 9. However, she sadly did let her inner-saboteur overcome her and was sent home prematurely in 6th place.

Nina is still serving some amazing looks on her Twitter, Instagram and Youtube accounts (see above for some stunning boy and girl drag!), but wouldn't we love to see her compete again? She's got the talent to win, she just needs to learn how to take the competition in stride. Hopefully she'd have more self-confidence the second time around, and blossom into the amazing queen we already know she is.

9. Shea Couleé

Her name is Shea Couleé and she's here to slay...on All Stars.
Her name is Shea Couleé and she's here to slay...on All Stars.

Some fans (okay, myself included) are still sad that Shea didn't win Season 9. We can argue all day about how unfair the lip sync for the crown twist was (no one could win against Sasha's gaggy petals), but facts are facts: Shea won 4 challenges during her season (compared to Sasha's 2) and was a very safe bet as winner.

Shea's another shoe-in for a future All Stars season- again I'd be surprised if we don't see her in Season 5. She's definitely multi-talented: looks, personality, acting ability, singing/rapping...let's just hand her the crown now, shall we?

10. Miz Cracker

Is it time for Miz Cracker to come back on All Stars?
Is it time for Miz Cracker to come back on All Stars?

Miz Cracker was an early favourite on Season 10 amongst the fandom. The self-proclaimed "comedy queen" did quite well during the show; she placed 5th, and won the makeover challenge with easily the best makeover in RuPaul's Drag Race herstory.

With several of her Season 10 co-stars already being featured on All Stars (including Season 4 winner, Monet X Change), Miz Cracker is almost guaranteed to be on a future Season of All Stars.

Who's your favourite pick for a future season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars? Have I mentioned them already, or did I leave them out? Let me know in the comments section below!
