Yara Sofia is coming in from Drag Race season 3 and All Stars 1.
A better headspace
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the queens discussed each other and their own hopes for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 6. Pandora Boxx shared a hope for redemption after a terrible attitude on All Stars 1, “It’s more about All-Stars 1, and I wanted a complete do-over of my wretched c–t attitude.” Boxx, however, said she is coming in a “a better headspace” for this round of the competition.
Also going through growth since the last time on Drag Race? Jiggly Caliente, who said, “I’m more aware of the woman that I am today than I was 10 years ago. So, when I filmed, I was 30, and I was going through a lot in my life at the time. I didn’t even realize there was so much going on until I saw myself on television and I was like, wow, you need help!”
Ra’Jah O’Hara said that she’s also looking for some redemption, “Leaving season 11, I got a lot of flak from the fans and viewers, so I have to prove who I am as a person and a queen, because what you saw on season 11 was just a stressed out, temperamental, insecure version of Ra’Jah.” It sounds like a lot of the queens are hoping to show their best faces to the fans of the franchise.
