RuPaulWhat must it be like to be RuPaul? Hmmm ... I can't really even fathom it, so let's just continue on with this news item as if it's important.

RuPaul's Drag Race, a new reality competition series helmed by the drag queen him/herself, has been greenlighted by MTV Networks' Logo, which targets lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender viewers, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

The series will feature contestants competing to become "America's next superstar drag queen," with RuPaul serving as host, mentor and judge. Online voters will help pick one of the contestants at RuPaulsDragRace.com. The six-episode train wreck is scheduled to debut on Logo early next year.

"RuPaul's history-making turn as a groundbreaking glamour sensation opened the door for a new generation of drag superstars," said Brian Graden, president of MTV Networks Music Group Entertainment and Logo. "We hope to find the next one."

The big question is: Do we really need another RuPaul? Isn't one enough?

The show is geared for a lgbt audience...hence being on Logo...and it's about time! I hate reality shows, but how many come around that focus on stuff in my life?...hardly any! I'm excited for this show.

It's just so freakish how much RuPaul and Tyra are looking like each other. Maybe the two of them could go and perform on "Celebrity Circus" which will probably be only half as entertaining as this show.
