RuPaul's "All Stars 2" Contestants Are The Fiercest Of The Fierce

This is going to be a good season, goyls.

RuPaul's "All Stars 2" Contestants Are The Fiercest Of The Fierce

That's right, hunties. On August 25, Mama Ru is bringing back "All Stars Drag Race" for a second season of redemption for some of our favorite queens that didn't quite get the crown during their seasons. The second season of "All Stars" promises to be dramatic, with a former alliance, RoLaskaTox, and a deep-seated rivalry between Alyssa Edwards and Coco Montrese to spice things up. The rules have also changed from season one – there are no teams, and each week, the winner of the lip synch (and, thus, the winner of the challenge) will choose who should be eliminated.

Here's a brief run-down of this season's competitors:

Adore Delano

Season 6, Runner-Up

What she's been doing since her appearance: This fierce former Idol contestant has released not one, but two albums, accompanied by killer music videos.

What we've got to look forward to: All Stars will definitely be a "party" with Adore's bright lip colors, love of swearing and overall "polish remover" vibe.

Best of Adore


Season 5, Runner-Up

What she's been doing since her appearance: After her breakup with Season 4 winner Sharon Needles (sob), Alaska got to work, releasing several singles before her (highly explicit) debut album. She also joined fellow former RPDR contestants Courtney Act and Willam as spokesmodels for American Apparel.

What we've got to look forward to: Basically everything about Alaska. The signature blonde hair teased to the heavens, the incredible facial expressions and, with any luck, the return of Lil' Pound Cake.

Best of Alaska

Alyssa Edwards

Season 5, 6th Place

What she's been doing since her appearance: Apart from running her successful dance studio, about which a documentary was made but never aired, Alyssa has her own series, ALYSSA'S SECRET, on the World of Wonder YouTube Channel.

What we've got to look forward to: Alyssa can dance and knows how to pull out all the stops for a lip synch battle. This could help her if she ends up in the Top Two for a challenge. Also, I'd be lying if I didn't say I was at least a little excited to see her rivalry with Coco play out again. *mouth click*

Best of Alyssa

Coco Montrese

Season 5, 5th Place

What she's been doing since her appearance: Coco has performed at events all over the world and has been unafraid to speak her mind on Twitter against Donald Trump, among other things. She's also been a huge supporter of her drag sisters, going to their shows and tweeting photos.

What we've got to look forward to: Besides the rivalry with Alyssa, Coco will definitely bring excitement to the runway with bold patterns and colors. And, of course, she'll kill any lip synchs she's faced with.

Best of Coco


Season 5, 4th Place

What she's been doing since her appearance: In addition to participating in "Battle of the Seasons", Detox recently created her own YouTube cooking show with her mother called Eat It Up!

What we've got to look forward to: Her incredibly funny reads, her amazing sense of style on the runway and her "distinct style of lip synch" all make Detox a fierce competitor for All Stars.

Best of Detox

Ginger Minj

Season 7, Runner-Up

What she's been doing since her appearance: Echoing her Snatch Game performance, Ginger appeared as Adele during Battle of the Seasons. She's also appeared across the country and even internationally.

What we've got to look forward to: She's arguably the most diversely talented queen this season--she can sing, dance, act and do comedy. She can also bring the pageant glamour like few others.

Best of Ginger


Season 7, 5th Place, Miss Congeniality

What she's been doing since her appearance: Katya has been touring around the world to perform as well as creating several different webseries on YouTube, although she announced on Twitter this month that she is "[taking a] short break from work" because of health concerns.

What we've got to look forward to: Katya's character and personality are always hilarious, and her fashion choices are far from boring.

Best of Katya

Phi Phi O'Hara

Season 4, Runner-Up

What she's been doing since her appearance: Despite a 30-day stay in jail for past charges, Phi Phi has found success on Instagram for her cosplay looks and even proposed (out of drag) to her then-boyfriend at Battle of the Seasons in New York earlier this year.

What we've got to look forward to: It'll be interesting to see if Phi Phi tames her temper and how much she has matured over the past four and a half years. I'm also hoping she brings more cosplay influence to her styles, especially after seeing Kim Chi's anime looks.

("Best of Phi Phi" hasn't been posted yet, so here's a video of the amazing Bianca Del Rio reading her instead, because Bianca is the light of my life.)

Roxxxy Andrews

Season 5, Runner-Up

What she's been doing since her appearance: Roxxxy has apparently been continuing her weight loss journey while performing across the country and killing it on Twitter. After the shooting at Pulse in Orlando, she got a tattoo honoring those killed at the club she called home for ten years.

What we've got to look forward to: She's going to keep showing off that bomb body of hers, I hope, since she's been wearing more provocative outfits. Hopefully the editing will be kinder to her, though, because I don't believe she's as mean as S5 portrays her to be. Oh, and she'll be wearing a "shiny sequins gown" at some point, I'm sure.

("Best of Roxxxy" isn't published yet, so here's Roxxxy on Ring My Bell.)


Season 2, 4th Place

What she's been doing since her appearance: I haven't been able to find much about Tatianna, since her appearance was more than six years ago. However, it seems like she's still performing in DC (and killing it!) as well as appearing on YouTube with some of her Drag Race sisters.

What we've got to look forward to: She's arguably the fishiest queen this season, and her Snatch Game performance is one to watch, especially after she delivered so well in her season as Britney.

("Best of Tatianna" isn't available, so here's Tatianna on Ring My Bell.)

So, squirrelfriends, whose team are you on for All-Stars 2?

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
