RuPaul's Drag Race is a reality show that pits drag queens against each other in a race to become "America's Next Drag Superstar." It is hosted by perhaps America's only drag superstar RuPaul. It airs on three networks -- Logo and VH1 in the United States and MuchMore in Canada. The show went on air in 2009 and is still running as of 2012.
Each episode consists of a series of challenges presented to the contestants. The contestants consist only of biologically male drag queens. Their sexuality is not a consideration when they are chosen and contestants of all sexualities are welcome, but the show does have a historic predominance of gay contestants. RuPaul himself is allegedly bisexual and appears on the show both as a man and as a drag queen, while helping the contestants through challenges and judging them based on their performances.
