The library has re-opened and it’s time to get back to werk. Not IRL, of course, but for Drag Race fans Mother Ru brings great news: a top secret, four-episode incarnation of Drag Race in which famous celebrities sashay down the runway. It’s just what we need right now, and we’re here to tell you how to watch RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race no matter where you find yourself.
In a reversal of fortunes, each episode will see three celebrities on the other side of the judging panel: their Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent up for a thorough evaluation. They’ll be assisted by Drag Race royalty – past contestants including Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, and fan-favorite Vanessa “Vanjeee” Mateo – who’ll help them look polished and get their snatch game up to scratch.
The star-studded lineup is currently very hush-hush, so we’re excited to see who goes under the makeup brush. Will we see Tom Hanks sashay away? Brad Pitt lip-sync for his life, or Madonna performing a death drop? Either way, of the twelve celebrities, the winner will be crowned Celebrity Drag Race champion whose prize money will go to their nominated charity.
Don’t miss a moment of sick’ning runway fun courtesy of your favorite queens and showbiz pals. Just sit back, put down that cross-stitch, and relax as we tell you how to watch RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race online wherever you are.

How to watch RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race from abroad
As far as we know, RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race is a one-off special, airing exclusively on VH1 in the US. It’s not likely to be broadcast simultaneously from anywhere else or made available on international streaming platforms like Netflix.
Despite many of us being homebound due to the coronavirus lockdown, some people have found themselves stranded outside of the US, while others are still required to travel for work. So, Drag Race fanatics abroad will find themselves geo-blocked when trying to watch the show through US-only streaming platforms.
Fortunately, there’s a solution in the form of a VPN. This invaluable piece of software changes your IP address so you can access all the content you normally view at home, from anywhere in the world.
Be aware, however, that some services will require you to verify local credit card details, or to enter your cable subscription information before giving you access, so please read the fine print first.
