Exclusive video: Meet some of the new contestants of 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

January 21, 2011 |  6:00 am

The third season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" kicks off Monday on Logo at 10 p.m. (Though if you're a big fan, you'll probably want to see the casting special that will air at 9 p.m.).

The Los Angeles Times visited the set of the reality competition in search of the next drag superstar in July and interviewed a few of the contestants.

In the two videos below, four draq queens share their best and worst career drag moments as well as their best and worst moments on the TV show. Can we get an amen?

The contestants appear in the following order:

Manila Luzon, 25, of New York City; Yara Sofia, 26, of Puerto Rico; Raja, 36, of West Hollywood; and Alexis Mateo, 30, of St. Petersburg, Fla. (Special treat:  We allowed Yara Sofia to speak in her native Spanish. Sorry if you don't comprende her lingo.)
