Start Your Engines!

If you're a fan of Project Runway you're sure to love "RuPaul's Drag Race":

9 contestants are vying for the title of America's Drag Queen Superstar. In the first episode these nine contestants must re-invent their glam drag looks using thrift store clothing and tschotchkes from the 99-cent store. Guest judge Bob Mackie stops by to help RuPaul weed out the drag queen with the least style.
Each cast member must embody the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent that made RuPaul an international drag superstar. The judges will determine the bottom two contestants of the week. Those contestants then compete in a show-stopping battle-royal "lip-synch for your life" performance that will determine if they will "shante" and stay and who will "sashay" away.
The show is a lot of fun. I first saw it while I was on the treadmill at the gym and almost fell off. New episodes air on Logo on Monday nights at 10:00PM but plays throughout the week. It also airs on VH1 at different times. Check your TV guide for more information.
