"'RuPaul's Drag Race' has consistently shown that even underdogs can be champions," said Dave Mace, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Logo. "And today, this 'little-show-that-could' has become a national and GLAAD Media Award-winning phenomenon."

Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell, Executive Producers from WOW Productions collectively commented, "In our 500 years in show business, it's hard to remember a series that has stirred such a deep and passionate following.
