The new season of RuPaul's Drag Race began last night, and reality show enthusiasts saw some folks they recognized!

Oh, before we get into the contestants: A moment with Vanessa Williams. Forty-seven and fierce.

Okay, now for the important stuff: One of the contestants, Raja, is actually Sutan, the sexy and stylish make-up artist from America's Next Top Model. Sutan's clients include Dita Von Teese, Pamela Anderson, Adam Lambert and, of course, Tyra Banks.

But Sutan's most impressive work may be when he summons Raja. He undergoes an amazing transformation, from boyish to lush-lipped and ladylike. Check out these images from his Facebook page!

Raja won a challenge in the episode last night by having the best image from the trampoline photo shoot. The drag racers had better watch out for Raja.

The other familiar face? Shangela! She returned to the show after losing in an epic and memorable Lipsync For Your Life mortal combat battle during season 2.

Speaking of battles… The showcase showdown between India and Phoenix was wiggy warfare — frightening and frosty!
