And the category is: excitement eleganza! Why? Because RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 is finally here, premiering today, June 24th with a bevy of fan favorites competing for the crown and a who's who of celebrity judges, including actress Angela Basset, singer Charli XCX, and Beyoncé's mama herself, Tina Knowles-Lawson.
Cord-cutters will be happy to know that you no longer need cable TV to watch this season of Drag Race All Stars, as this will be the first edition airing exclusively on a streaming service.
However, with all of the recent channel-switching between where you can stream regular Drag Race seasons, Drag Race All Stars, and international spinoffs like Drag Race U.K., Drag Race Down Under, and Drag Race España, it can be confusing as all hell to figure out where to go to watch which show.
So slap on your wigs and tighten your tuck because we're here to clear up any confusion and make sure that you never miss one dramatic drag moment.

Like the main RuPaul's Drag Race series, previous All Stars seasons aired on cable via Logo and VH1. However, producers shifted gears this season when they announced that RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 will air exclusively in the U.S. on Paramount+ starting Thursday, June 24th.
You will need a Paramount+ subscription to watch All Stars 6, and there are several plans available. If you want to pay monthly, you can go ad-free for $9.99 a month or keep the commercials for five bucks less. Annual options include a no-ads tier for $99.99 a year, or a limited-commercials plan for $49.99 a year.
For viewers in Britain and Ireland, Netflix UK confirmed only this week that it would be airing the show, releasing episodes on the same dates as in the U.S.
The brand tweeted: "We're finally able to confirm that not only will RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 be coming to weekly, but new episodes will be available on 𝙏𝙃𝙐𝙍𝙎𝘿𝘼𝙔 afternoons." Netflix UK later tweeted that the episodes will begin streaming at 5pm.
(Exact timings tbc, but we'll yell as soon as episodes 1&2 are available on Thursday)June 22, 2021
If you're currently outside of the U.S. or the U.K., you can still watch the show on Paramount+ with the use of a VPN. A VPN is a handy piece of software that allows you to browse anonymously and change your IP address so that your mobile, computer, or laptop thinks it's in another location. That means that you can watch your favorite show, film, or event, even if you’re away from home.
Our favorite VPN service is ExpressVPN, rated the best VPN in the world right now, by our colleagues at TechRadar.

Who is the 14th queen? All Stars 6 shocker
** Warning: spoilers ahead! **
At the very end of the first episode of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6, our titular host dropped a bombshell: a 14th queen will be joining the competition.
"Don’t get it twisted—this season of All Stars is going to be a game within a game and a masterclass in survival," Ru told the queens. "Now, before the competition begins officially, it’s time to reveal one more queen."
Of course, this wouldn't be RuPaul's Drag Race without some drama, darling, so the screen turned black immediately after Ru's announcement, meaning viewers will have to wait until the next episode to find out which returning queen is going to sashay their way into the competition.
