"Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race" Returns for Third Season

NEW YORK, NY, December 12, 2011 - "RuPaul's Drag Race" returns with a fresh, fun and fabulous fourth season as 13 glorious queens go heel-to-heel as they compete for the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar." The 90-minute premiere kicks off Monday, January 30 at 9 PM ET/PT on Logo (the series' regular timeslot), followed by a new season of the behind-the-scenes fan favorite "Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race" at 10:30 PM ET/PT.

RuPaul, the world's most famous drag queen, has pushed the boundaries of popular culture on an international level and continues the fourth season, alongside judges Michelle Visage and Santino Rice, to decide who will "shante! stay!" or "sashay away" with a new batch of the nation's hottest, most glamorous drag queens. Wigs will fly and drama will run high as the contestants bring their over-the-top attitudes to the drag battle royale that is "RuPaul's Drag Race."

"People ask me, 'RuPaul, how do you manage to book such amazing celebrity guest judges?,'" says RuPaul. "It's simple. I blackmail them using a series of naughty Polaroid pictures I took back in the '90s. Works like a charm."

Keeping with the tradition of attracting TV's best celebrity judges, the new installment of "RuPaul's Drag Race" includes (in alphabetical order):

Amber Riley
Billy B.
Dan Savage
Jeffrey Moran
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer Tilly
Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Rose McGowan
Ross Mathews
Wynonna Judd

Premiere night keeps the party going as the companion series, "Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race" brings an all-new season of the backstabbing, backbreaking, backstage drama that you didn't see on the runway. The cameras capture it all in the "Interior Illusions Lounge" as the ladies reveal that winning really is everything! RuPaul narrates another 11 explosive episodes of this raw, behind-the-scenes look of the new season. And if the pressure of the main stage wasn't enough, you never know who will stop by to keep the girls on their high-heeled toes.
