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.

The challenges on RuPaul's Drag Race pertain to drag queen culture. They involve personality builders, drag dress competitions, modeling competitions, impersonations and more. The judging occurs before a panel and the judges decide who the winners of the challenges were and who did not meet the challenges well enough. From there, RuPaul has the lowest ranking competitors lip-sync to a song by a female vocal artist. She then decides who did the best job of it. The contestant with the worst lip-sync performance goes home.

Memorable moments in the show's history include the finales in which winners are announced, but also some eliminations. They can stir up controversy among fans as to what constitutes a good drag queen. One socially and emotionally charged moment was when contestant Ongina told the world she was HIV positive. However, not all of the memorable moments are so serious. There is a lot of comedy surrounding the contestants when they show they are not only drag queens, but also mega drama queens.
