RuPaul's Drag U (or simply Drag U) was a spinoff series that began airing in Summer 2010, after Season 2 of the main series ended.
There have been three seasons of Drag U, airing the summers following Drag Race seasons 2, 3 and 4. RuPaul confirmed on May 8, 2013 that the series had been cancelled and there would be no further episodes.
In each episode of RuPaul's Drag U three women are given drag makeovers and taught to access their "inner divas". Each of the women is judged and evaluated on her "Drag Point Average" (DPA):
- Drag transformation
- Attitude adjustment
The contestant with the highest DPA wins a cash prize.
RuPaul is the "President" of Drag U. Unlike in RuPaul's Drag Race, he does not appear in drag. Regular judges in the first season of Drag U were Lady Bunny as "Dean of Drag", and Frank Gatson Jr. as "Dean of Dance".
For season two, Lady Bunny returned, and various choreographers rotated throughout the season as "Deans of Dance". Each episode features one celebrity guest judge.
Contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race appeared on RuPaul's Drag U as drag professors who help the contestants.
