RuPaul has wrangled a group of Good Judies to help him roll out his new, self-titled talk show.

Joining the drag superstar, actor, model, author, and Emmy-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race host for the first week of the series’ limited test run will be pop icon Paula Abdul, Late Late Show host James Corden, The Property Brothers stars Jonathan and Drew Scott, Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, presidential candidate Cory Booker, country singer Jana Kramer, comedian Loni Love, and American Ninja Warrior‘s Matt Iseman.

Michelle Visage and Ross Mathews — longtime Drag Race panelists and friends of RuPaul — will also rotate appearances throughout RuPaul‘s three-week testing phase, which kicks off June 10 on select Fox stations around the country.

RuPaul also debuted a new clip Wednesday morning, which sees RuPaul offering tips on how to improve one’s outlook on life as he stands on his set’s runway.

“The biggest lesson I learned was to love myself. You’ve got to learn to love yourself. We all have this negative voice — I call it my inner saboteur — and it screams all kinds of garbage at me, trying to make me feel bad about myself,” Ru says. “The solution, I’ve found, is to nurture a positive, loving voice to counterbalance that negative one. It’s a daily practice, child, I’m doing it every day. Because if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else? Let the church say ‘Amen!'”

RuPaul — the 58-year-old’s first talk show since VH1’s The RuPaul Show, also featuring Visage, ended in 1998 — premieres Monday, June 10 on Fox stations in New York (WNYW FOX 5 at 7 p.m. and WWOR My9 at 5 p.m.), Los Angeles (KTTV FOX 11 at 6 p.m. and KCOP My13 at 8 p.m.), San Francisco: (KTVU FOX 2 at 2 p.m. and KTVU Plus 13 at 3 p.m.), Houston (KRIV FOX 26 at 3 p.m.), Phoenix (KSAZ FOX 10 at 2 p.m.), Minneapolis (WFTC My9 Plus at 8 p.m.), and Charlotte (WJZY FOX 46 at 10 a.m.).
