Legendary drag icon RuPaul will once again search for America’s next drag superstar when the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race hits airwaves next week. It’s set to premiere on Logo on Monday, Feb. 1 at 9/8c, and each week will rerun on VH1 the following Tuesday at 9/8c (starting Tuesday, Feb. 2). You can check out a preview of the season above and some more info on the show (courtesy of the press release) below:

Gentlemen, start your engines! May the best woman win!” After much critical acclaim and widespread popularity, Logo’s hit reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race has returned for a second season. This second lap of RuPaul’s Drag Race will reflect the same hallmarks of the first season that made it a pop culture hit, including the now classic “lip synch for your life” segment. However, with a larger cast of competitors, mega-watt celebrity guest judges and more extravagant weekly challenges, the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be the most tweeted about show of the season. The stakes, wigs and heels are higher than ever as RuPaul searches to crown one lucky up-and-coming drag queen the title (and tiara) of America’s Next Drag Superstar. RuPaul’s Drag Race returns Monday, February 1, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

RuPaul’s Drag Race returns stronger than ever with a dream team of A-list celebrity and judges. Each week, joining RuPaul on the judges’ panel includes the return of fashion journalist Merle Ginsberg and Project Runway breakout star Santino Rice. In addition, star-studded guest judges will grace the runway and decide which drag queen will need to “lip synch for their life” at the end of each weekly larger-than-life challenge. Guest judges and stars include: Kathy Griffin (comic/actress), Cloris Leachman (Academy Award winning actress), Debbie Reynolds (legendary actress), Jackie Collins (prolific novelist), Tatum O’Neal (Academy Award-winning actress), Kathy Najimy (actress), Henry Rollins (punk rock icon), Terri Nunn (singer of Berlin), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Tony Award-winning actress), Dita Von Teese (international burlesque star), Niecy Nash (Reno 911!), Martha Wash (the voice of dance music), Kim Coles (comic/actress), Tanya Tucker (country music superstar), Lisa Rinna (actress), Mathu Andersen (master image creator), Gigi Levangie Grazer (writer/creator of USA’s The Starter Wife), Alec Mapa (comedian/actor), Marc Malkin (E! Television), Mike Ruiz (photographer) and Phoebe Price.

We’ll be covering the show on this blog, but in the meantime, you can check out Logo’s NewNowNext blog‘s already extensive coverage of it. Peep the Drag Race 2 contestants at the show’s official site. Additionally, if you want to get in on the dragged-out action without leaving your seat, check out the Dragulator, which allows you to give yourself a makeover fit for a queen by just uploading a picture.

As you can see, if done properly, the Dragulator will make you infinitely more gorgeous. As someone who’s sported a buzzed head for 10 years now, people often ask me what I look like with hair. We now know the answer is: too fabulous to manage.

So, yeah, drag drag drag. It’s going down sons! (And part-time daughters!) In addition to all this, RuPaul’s also about to release a book: Workin’ It!: RuPaul’s Guide to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Style hits stores Feb. 2. The book’s site promises that it’s “part style guide, part confidence manifesto, and entirely fabulous.” Those are three things we can never have enough of.
