Loni Love joins the judges’ panel for the upcoming episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Love, who has acted as a guest judge in previous seasons and was also a contestant on RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race, returns to join Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and, of course, RuPaul herself. Of course, the chocolate bar twist is in play, with the losing queen from the Lip Sync for Your Life checking their chocolate bar to see if they have the elusive golden ticket and a chance to stay in the competition.
So far, guest judges have included singers Lizzo and Alicia Keys as well as Bling Empire star Christine Chiu. Other guest judges expected to join the series include Taraji P. Henson, Andra Day, Loni Love, Ava Max, returning guest judges Nicole Byer, Ts Madison and Alec Mapa, Dove Cameron, Dulce Sloan, Jennifer Lopez and Sarah McLachlan. Leslie Jordan and Anastasia Beverly Hills exec Norvina will also make special appearances.
The 14th season of Drag Race includes the franchise’s first heterosexual male contestant, Maddy Morphosis. The rest of the cast of competing queens include Alyssa Hunter, Angeria Paris VanMicheals, Bosco, Daya Betty, DeJa Sky, Jasmine Kennedie, Jorgeous, June Jambalaya, Kerri Colby, Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté, Lady Camden, Maddy Morphosis, Orion Story, and Willow Pill.
