It’s finally here. The premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3 is mere hours away. And just like Ru’s hair, this season promises to be bigger than ever. Before the awesomely dragtastic show crown’s “America’s Next Drag Superstar“, Logo will present the show’s first-ever casting special starting at 9pm. That’ll be followed by Season 3′s 90-minute season opener at 10pm. An if that wasn’t enough, a brand new season of “Untucked: RuPaul’s Drag Race” sashays back to the runway at 11:30. It’s official… Monday’s are a drag, but in a good way.
If you’re a regular visitor of the site, you’ll know we’re huge fans of the show and can’t wait for this season. We were fortunate enough to have Logo send us the first episode a month ago. Trust me when I say, there are a couple of “surprises” you won’t expect. It’ll blow your respective wigs off. Leading up to tonight’s episode, we’ve talked to RuPaul herself and new judge, Michelle Visage. You’ll have to check our awesome sit down with the two ladies, if you haven’t already done so.
To celebrate tonight’s season opener, Homorazzi.com is participating in two events. First, if you’re in the Vancouver area, tonight marks the kick-off Official Viewing Party in the city by Homorazzi’s own, Tommy D at The Helm. Doors open at 8pm and there’s no cover so you have no excuse. If you’re a fan of the show, you definitely have to come down. It’ll be a great time. There will be prizes given away each week.

Secondly, Logo has asked Alex and myself to be special panelists for their celebrity live blogging for tonight’s show. Join their live chat on http://www.LogoTV.com starting tonight at 9pm EST and then another chat for PST viewers at 9pm. Guest chatters tonight include: Mike Ruiz, Michelle Visage, Mariah – (Season 3), Mystique – (Season 2), India Ferrah (Season 3), Jade Sotomayor (Season 1), and Ongina (Season 1). Fun, right? Come by and log on to join in the witty banter.
As mentioned earlier, this season is going to be bigger than ever. The challenges will be epic and so are the upcoming celebrities dropping by. In tonight’s episode Vanessa Williams and Bruce Vilanch stop by. Other notable celebs to look forward to this season include: Margaret Cho, Eliza Dushku, Carmen Electra, Fantasia, LaToya Jackson, Sharon Osbourne, Chloe Sevigny, Cheryl Tiegs, Lily Tomlin, Jody Watley and Johnny Weir. Even the prizes the drag queens are competing for got amped up. Not only is there a $75,000 cash prize, but the prize package includes a headlining spot on Logo’s Drag Race Tour sponsored by ABSOLUT and a lifetime supply of Kryolan Professional Make-up. FIERCE.
Be sure to drop by later in the week, as Homorazzi.com will have exiting interviews with each eliminated drag queen on a weekly basis. Cheers and here’s to Season 3.
