RuPaul's Drag U is a three-season spin-off of RuPaul's Drag Race where former contestants from the original series offer style (and attitude) makeovers to women.

Premise[]

In each episode, three women are given drag makeovers and taught to access their "inner divas". Each of these "faux queens" are judged and evaluated on her "Drag Point Average (DPA), "Drag Transformation, Performance and Attitude adjustment". The contestant with the highest DPA wins. RuPaul is the "President" of Drag U. Unlike RuPaul's Drag Race, he does not appear in drag. Regular judges in Season 1 were: "Dean of Drag" Lady Bunny, "Dean of Dance" Frank Gatson Jr.; for Season 2, Lady Bunny returned as "Dean of Drag", and various character choreographers throughout the season as "Deans of Dance". Each episode features one celebrity guest judge, who is usually female.

Trivia[]

On May 8, 2013, RuPaul confirmed via Twitter that the series has been cancelled.
