Speaking exclusively to THEGAYUK.com RuPaul’s Drag Race super judge, Michelle Visage has suggested that the All-Star version of the show is tough going and only the most “stable” should apply; and it can be a bad idea if you don’t think you can handle pressure. Answering concerns that doing an All-Star version could cause you to damage your brand, Michelle said that there was always the risk of the audience falling out of love with you and that they could end up hating you.

In fact, you should just stay clear if you’re worried about destroying all the good work you’ve done in creating your brand.

She told us,

“There’s always that risk because if you were loved first time around and you f*** up the second time around, there is the risk that people are going to hate you.
“It can be a bad idea if you’re not sure that you can handle it. If you’re not sure you can handle it, you shouldn’t do it.”

But it’s not all bad if you’re up for the challenge. Doing All-Stars could help further your career, she told us,

“I think that if you’re stable and you know which way you’re going to play the game and you feel con dent, then it can be a really good thing.
“Here’s the bottom line, it’s a TV show. Somebody goes home every week and this is the best of the best.”

Michelle does have a key to keeping herself safe from the Trolls. She revealed to us, that she blocks hate immediately and never gets involved with social media disputes.
