The Format

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 8 follows a similar format to the previous seasons of All Stars. Each week, the queens compete in various challenges that test their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. The challenges include mini-challenges that reward them with prizes or advantages in the main challenges; main challenges that involve acting, singing, dancing, comedy, or design; runway presentations that showcase their fashion sense; and lip sync battles that determine their fate in the competition.

The main difference in All Stars Season 8 is that there are two parallel competitions: one for the title of “All Star” and one for the title of “Queen of the Fame Games”. In addition to competing for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame alongside previous All Stars winners, the queens also compete for a $50,000 prize that will be awarded to one of the eliminated queens based on fan votes.

The format for the All Star competition is as follows:

Each week, RuPaul announces the winner of the main challenge and the bottom two queens who are up for elimination.
The winner of the main challenge lip syncs for her legacy against a lip sync assassin, a former Drag Race contestant who is brought in to challenge her.
If the winner of the main challenge wins the lip sync, she earns a $10,000 tip and the power to eliminate one of the bottom two queens. If the lip sync assassin wins, she earns a $10,000 tip and reveals a lipstick with the name of the queen who was voted out by the rest of the queens.
The eliminated queen sashays away and joins the Fame Games competition.
The format for the Fame Games competition is as follows:

Each week, the eliminated queens show their runway looks from that week’s theme on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars: Untucked!, a companion show that airs after the main show and features behind-the-scenes footage and conversations among the queens.
At the end of the season, fans vote for their favorite eliminated queen based on their runway looks and personalities.
The queen with the most votes wins the title of “Queen of the Fame Games” and a $50,000 prize.
