RuPaul’s Drag Race will return for season five
14 April 2012

It's RuPaul's world, and the rest of us just live in it. Her show 'Drag Race' was green lighted for a fifth season.

Logo, the American channel that airs the program, made the announcement in an 12 April press release. The 2013 season will air early next year. Between now and 18 April, those who think they have what it takes to work under RuPaul's glare can submit audition videos at the show's Facebook page.

'I live for drag and to witness the excitement surrounding the success of our show, takes my breath away,' RuPaul said in the release.

Between 18 April and 2 May, fans will be able to watch the submissions and vote on those applicants they think can bring it to the female impersonators reality show. The top vote getter will earn a spot in the 2013 show.

Drag Race's fourth season has been an astounding success. The premiere episode was Logo's highest rated program in the channel's history, bringing in 50 percent more viewers than the opening show in season three.

Previous winners of the game show include BeBe Zahara Benet, Tyra Sanchez and Raja.
