Since 2009, "RuPaul's Drag Race" has been sashaying across the reality-television landscape by taking that old and tired reality-competition format and injecting it with the ultimate hit of fun and energy. This show is a pop-culture phenomenon that grew out of a quirky, campy little pet project of RuPaul herself. It's that perfect mix of glitz, glamor, cattiness, and heart that any reality show worth its salt needs to have if it wants to keep an audience watching. You get to know these people and either fall in love or absolutely hate them as they evolve into stars on the runway. The personalities are bigger and bolder than you'll find on any other show and the costumes have to match. There's a lot to love on the show, and it's very much inspired a whole new community of people to open their eyes to the world of drag. What was once considered super weird and fringe is now being appreciated for the act of artistry and expression it really is.
As popular as drag is now, and as much as RuPaul has done to bring it to the mainstream, the only question that really remains for you is, do you even know how to drag race? Do you have the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent it takes to ace this quiz? Why not take it and find out?
