These two iconic queens say they want to make a Drag Race comeback

As star guests for a viewing party for the All Stars 9 episode 1 at Roscoe's Tavern in Chicago, two RuPaul's Drag Race legends Detox and Naomi Smalls say they are interested in coming back for another season of Drag Race. 

Naysha Lopez and her main co hosts, Batty Davis, and Kara Mel D'Ville interviewed the queens about all things Drag Race and competition. 



"Even if there were [eliminations], I have an itch, honestly. And I haven't had it in so long. I've gotten more into Drag Race again after the last couple of seasons… like having Sasha [Colby] on, [and] having so many of my other friends on,” said Detox. 

“I miss that like camaraderie in the werk room. I miss the fun of it. It's like new and exciting. For years I was like, 'No, f*ck them.' And now I'm like, 'Oh… wait a minute now.'"

Naomi, who made it to the grand finale on both Drag Race season 8 and All Stars 4 replied with a similar response:

"I don't feel like 'f*ck them.' I feel like RuPaul's Drag Race is such a pageant. I mean, it's a competition. I love a competition. I love winning, and I haven't won yet, so… who knows? One day. But watching this season, you have your friends there, and they're all friends together, [and] you have a little bit of FOMO."

Following the news that one-third of the infamous “Rolaskatox” clique, Roxxxy Andrews’ casting on All Stars 9, Detox seemed to double down on her want to come back for another season in a post on X: 

“Happy [Roxxxy Andrews] Announcement Day to all who celebrate!”

In response to a fan asking if they would like to appear on another season, Detox wrote: “I’ve been sayin no since after AS2… but I dunno… I may have an itch.”

Naomi originally competed on Drag Race season eight where she ultimately placed joint second with Kim Chi. She then returned for the fourth season of All Stars, where Naomi ultimately finished in third/fourth place.
