Apart from fancy catwalks and shady werkroom drama, RuPaul’s Drag Race fans enjoy having a guest judge in every episode. Truly, they make a nice addition to the show with their positive criticisms and dynamic reactions.

Top 10 RuPaul’s Drag Race Guest Judges

10. Lady Gaga

We rest by the fact that there’s no other gay icon like Lady Gaga. That said, having her as guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race season is arguably one of the most remarkable scenes of all seasons. Known for her vocal support to the queer community, Lady Gaga took her role in the series with all her heart.

9. Leah Remini

Actress Leah Remini quickly created an impression to Drag Race fans as a hilarious guest judge. She is most notable for frequent bickers against regular judge Michelle Visage. Nevertheless, Remini is evidently passionate in performing her duty in the show.

8. Leslie Jones

Comedian Leslie Jones is not merely a guest judge, but a superfan of the reality series herself. During her time on Drag Race, her ecstatic energy was contagious. Clearly, Jones is one of the guest judges that we want to see in the panel again.

7. Rachel Bloom

Actress Rachel Bloom entered Drag Race alongside actor Jeff Goldblum for the show’s Choices 2020 episode. Bloom was eight months pregnant when the show invited her to serve as guest judge. Consequently, being in the series got her emotional, thinking how proud she’d be if her son would be a drag diva.

6. Nicki Minaj

Back in season 12, the “Super Bass” hitmaker appeared in the show in a vibrant all-red outfit. She judged every queen’s performance in the rap-based maxi challenge, spotting rooms for improvement. The spicy bonus came when Nicki Minaj did a freestyle rap during that episode.

5. Jennifer Lewis

Veteran actress Jennifer Lewis blessed drag queens with her presence during RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 4. Before she was guest judge, she’s already had friendly connections with drag queen Shangela. Ultimately, her energetic comments and animated reactions are most remembered by fans.

4. Elvira

Horror hostess character Elvira is a legendary guest judge, to say the least. She’s been in the judging panel for multiple times, and we’re not even confused why. Elvira’s valid critiques are worth taking, and her sense of humor is top-notch.

3. Nicole Byer

Comedian Nicole Byer is one among the guest judges who fully understood Drag Race quips and puns. Byer is a long-time fan of the reality series, os she poured a high level of commitment into her role as a guest judge. By now, we must agree that Bryer deserves a permanent seat in the panel.

2. Christina Aguilera

Pop icon Christina Aguilera is absolutely one of the LGBTQ+ allies that fans would beg to see on the show again. She rocked the Drag Race runway when she dressed up as season 8 contestant Farrah Moan. Indeed, her entrance in the reality series was iconic.

1. Miley Cyrus

Disguising herself as a sound guy, the “Wrecking Ball” singer has made queens hysterical in the werkroom. Coming into the season 11 of the series, Miley Cyrus has taken her role in the panel seriously. She’s given constructive advice to every queen, even going as far as having an emotional conversation with them.
