AOC to Guest Judge 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12

AOC to Guest Judge 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12

Just when we thought nothing could top Nicki Minaj's appearance on the forthcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race, the show has one-upped itself with its latest addition to an already-stacked roster of guest judges.

In what can only be called an incredible intersection of politics and pop culture, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been announced as a guest judge for Season 12 — and we can barely contain ourselves.

Granted, the news shouldn't really come as too much of a surprise given that AOC is a noted Drag Race superfan who's hung out with Season 9 winner Sasha Velour in the past. Plus, she's not the first politician to be making an appearance on the show, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi previously judged an All-Stars runway in 2018.

RuPaul's Drag Race premieres February 28 on VH1, but in the meantime, watch AOC pledge her allegiance to drag, below.
