WELCOME BACK TO THE RACE, KITTENS! Last night, RuPaul ruvealed all the info on the brand new Queens we'll be seeing on Season 8. SPOILER: they're bolder brighter and their weaves are higher than ever. We're so excited for the season premiere that we've ranked all 12 Queens based on how enthusiastically they made us shout 'YAAAS!'.

So, who has the Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent to go all the way this year?

CHI CHI DEVAYNE, 29, Shreveport, LA

WHAT'S THE TEA: Chi Chi's got her eyes and lips on that HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLLARR prize, don't get it twisted. And word on the street is that her lip syncing skills are too hot to handle.
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAS.

ROBBIE TURNER, 33, Seattle, WA

WHAT'S THE TEA: Robbie is BFFS with Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme so she's got some schticky boots ta fiiiiiill. As a seasoned comedy Queen, we're expecting big things!
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAS.

DERRICK BARRY, 32, Las Vegas, NV

WHAT'S THE TEA: Britney realness. Britney realness. Britney realness. Brit-ney real-ness. She's a got mug for days but is she capable of serving enough Nerve and Uniqueness on the runway to make it to the top?
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAS.

ACID BETTY, 37, Brooklyn, NY

WHAT'S THE TEA: This straight-talking, neon-loving, tea-spilling mama is this year's oldest Queen, so don't underestimate her. *100 emoji*
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAS!

DAX EXCLAMATIONPOINT, 31, Savannah, GA

WHAT'S THE TEA: HONEYYYYY WE'VE GOT OURSELVES A COSPLAYING QUEEN! The most extraverted nerd you'll ever meet, and the most determined of the bunch.
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAS!!

CYNTHIA LEE FONTAINE, 34, Austin, TX 

WHAT'S THE TEA: Cynthia is bathing in Charisma, sweetie. She's got it, yeah baby she's got it. #SexyAsAGoddesses #FunnyAsAClown 
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAS.

LAILA McQUEEN, 22, Gloucester, MA

WHAT'S THE TEA: If Sasha Belle and Adore Delano had a drag baby, it would be Laila. Punk aesthetic, oozing uniqueness and an apathetic attitude that served Pearl well last season. She. Better. WERK. 
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAS.

NAYSHA LOPEZ, 31, Chicago, IL

WHAT'S THE TEA: ~Actual~ crown snatching Pageant Girl with a face for the GAWDS. Something tells us she's got what it takes to snatch weaves on the runway every single week.
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAAS. 

NAOMI SMALLS, 21, Redlands, CA

WHAT'S THE TEA: NAOMI CAMPBELL REALNESS! This High-fashion hood rat has everything it takes to become America's Next Drag Superstar - have you clocked her mug?! Guuurrrrrlllll!
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAAS! 

KIM CHI, 27, Chicago, IL

WHAT'S THE TEA: Top 3 dead cert Kim Chi is an anime Queen after our own hearts - all she wants is affordable guac! She's also the first Korean Drag Queen to appear on TV... #InspirationalQueen (We're already so jealous of her face-beating skills!)  
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAAAS!!

THORGY THOR, 31, Brooklyn, NY

WHAT'S THE TEA: Thorgy has already cemented her place as a fan favourite with this first impression. If she doesn’t get ousted for her quirky aesthetic, she's got AWWWWLL THE CHARISMA AND NERVE to take her to the top 3. Slay us, Queen!
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAAAS!!!!

BOB THE DRAG QUEEN, 29, New York, NY

WHAT'S THE TEA: Lip syncing to an audiobook. SIGN US UP. Believe us when we say, we are ready for the #SeasonOfBob. And if she doesn't snatch the crown, she'll be our Miss Congeniality for real.
YAS OR YAAAAAS? YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Season 8 premieres on Logo TV on March 7 at 9pm. See you there, darrrrling.
