I hope the winner doesn't let success go to her head.
I hope Jinx gets some TV work
All that plastic surgery and Detox is fine with her nose. I hope Alaska is okay. She has a ton of fans and a lot of them are quite sad about the outcome. I bet Sharon was secretly relieved tho.
Jinkx has shown a lot of class trying to get people to back off of Roxxxy, that's pretty nice. And speaking of pretty, I think Jinkx looked very pretty last night. I hope she doesn't blow all of her winnings on clothes and wigs but it will be nice for her to be able to upgrade. Despite some of the judge's comments, I do think she has a nice sense of style and I think it was money that got in the way of her looking more pulled together.
What drugs are Alaska and Sharon on? It would be weird if their druggy names and schtick was all an act. Will they still live in Pittsburgh? Who was the reality star that one of them namechecked from P'Burgh?
I didn't like Jinx's wig for her final outfit. Honey Mahogany was really let down by her "Lady Bunny dragged through a bush" wig.
Yeah, Honey needs to hire yet another design team.
I do think Alaska came off the best during the finale. Jinkx is funny, but Alaska has the sharper wit.
The young queenette who did not know who Diana Ross is should be visciously face slapped and never allowed to do drag again.
I was surprised Ru didn't sneak Olivia Newton John into his gay icons lesson.
Could we name popular Puerto Rican entertainers from 40 years ago? She barely speaks English and is hardly acculturated in ancient American alcoholic singers.
I like Alaska's darker sense of humor. Jinkx is "kinder and gentler". But more commercial and face it, more talented. It was a good choice but I bet I'd really enjoy an Alaska show.
I actually think Alyssa Edwards COULD have a nine inch dick. And holy shit, Lady Bunny's read of Alyssa's chin/overbite situation was MEAN. I wonder if the animosity is from Alyssa's new show and LB is jealous?
According to your logic, R8, Maria Callas, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, and Billie Holiday should all be assigned to the scrap heap because they're from 40 years ago (or more) and long since dead.
Ru's "Immigration!" call on Lineysha was stupid. Girl is a US citizen, hunty. Do your research if you're going to mock someone.
It wasn't mockery, it was a gibe, and not intended for documentary effect. Get a sense of humor before you criticize anyone else's.
r10, I don't think r8 was referring to Puerto Rican performers who've had successful careers within the American culture, but to divas of Lineysha's own culture.
Jinkx acted a little strange during the finale. I think it was maybe the effect of her mother and brother being in the audience? She seemed a mix of happy and sad.
Detox looked amazing, but my what an unlikable personality. Stay bitter.
I loved Ru's gay diva-icons rundown! Although it really highlighted how much the new ones suck.
I know most people hate her, but I fucking love Abby Lee Miller. Finding out that she's so gay friendly AND a drag hag was icing on the cake.
Did anyone think Alaska was serving Evie Harris realness in his (potential) coronation look?
I'd like to see a RuPaul's Drag Race Senior Edition starring those drag queens that have been around for ever and ever. Over 40 or 50, they usually host shows in their cities and towns and they can read anyone to FILTH if needed.
What I want to know is how in hell Ru left Liza off the list of gay diva icons.
Jinx seemed nervous during the finale and pushed a little hard with her 'character'. But I am still glad she won.
I wonder if Alaska will gain any weight now that the show is over. It always seems like the queens pack on the pounds once their season ends. It's like they've starved themselves for the duration of the show and then they go on a binge.
Detox proved why she didn't win on the reunion. Yes she looks good, but what an awful ungrateful personality. It doesn't suprise me that she's pals with Willem. I don't want any more of their crowd on the show again. They're not nearly as funny as they think.
I did - it was 'all about evie' with that look.
Shame Roxxxy doesn't have an ounce of brains or humor or she could have done a mean Jeffery Roberson er, uh... Varla Jean Merman. I'd tip the heffa if she did 'blue jean jeannie' in that huge dress!
I noticed that too, R24.
R26 I've always thought her look was more reminiscent of John Candy portraying Divine on SCTV, especially that hideous makeup.
Willam can get away with his attitude because he's consistently funny, Detox has never managed to be more than occasionally entertaining. Willam has a really boring aesthetic though, he would have never come up with that black and white look.
The most disappointing thing about last night's show was Ivy Winters winning Miss Congeniality. She really wasn't all that nice. And Ivy might possibly be the most boring, personality-less Queen this has ever seen. The only memorable thing about her was Ru's pronunciation of her name (and that became very annoying fast).
NYC, please tell me you have better queens than this. You have some 'splainin to do because except for Manila, all NYC queens have been either busted (Jiggly, Milan, Mimi) or boring (Ivy, Sahara, Vivienne Pinay).
Willam looks like a cross between Tonya Harding and Nicole Brown Simpson.
Willam seems to be very popular among online Drag Race viewers, and I just don't understand why. I don't even find him funny. At all. And as far as appearance goes, he really is the one that looks like a man in a wig. Not to mention his voice his terrible.
I agree that Ivy was an awful Miss Congeniality choice. That spot has always gone to the most beloved and quirky queen of the season (Nina, Pandora, Yara, Latrice). Ivy, in addition to being completely forgettable, wasn't even all that nice. If we wanted to avoid a double win for Jinkx, Alyssa was the next best choice IMO.
Personally, I really loved Ivy. There's just not a big personality there that plays well on reality tv. If you check out some videos of her performances youtube, she's actually pretty entertaining. I really liked her lipsynch of Air Mail Express, and when she juggled knives over Carmen.
Plus, she was definitely the sweetest queen this year. She didn't really have any competition for the title. Possibly Alaska, but I feel that there's an unwritten rule post season one that finalists are ineligible. Alyssa would be the only other contender, but she was obliviously funny rather than sweet, and she was occasionally a real shady bitch in a way that the other Miss Congenialities weren't.
I want to know how this show is filmed. Are the contestants sequestered for several weeks or what? If they are, it would be fun to see some of that behind the scenes nonsense.
I agree with R32 about Willem. I haven't seen his music videos, but I did endure TRICKED UP TRANNIES WITH KNIVES or whatever and that was dreadful. I guess that's why she's such good friends with Detox because they're both all attitude and nothing else.
r34, I know I've seen some vlogs from Manila on Youtube that took place in the hotel they stayed at during filming of season 3.
You should watch Willam's Beatdown if you haven't found him funny yet.
I had to look up this business about Willam, Detox and Vicki Vox performing in Dubai. This is the best description I could find.
BTW, Vicky Vox is almost 100% definitely cast for Season 6 (according to Willam).
R39 They will all wind up beheaded.
From R38's link
[quote]Belli has a running role in television show ‘Nip/Tuck’.
Must still be running in their country.
Is Jinkx' little brother a gay boy too?
Willem does have very feminine legs. In some pics from the reunion it looks like he has cellulite.
It seemed that way, R42.
R40, I'm looking forward to a big girl who can finally deliver humor, charisma and polish (sorry Roxxxy and Delta). Vicky Vox for S6 F3.
Ever since they mentioned Willam's beard on her season, that's all I see now.
Yup, R45, she refuses not to use expensive makeup made for girls. Unfortunately she needs to use theatrical paint like everyone else.
I think that's why she gets the acting roles. She instantly reads "guy in a dress" the second you see her.
Roxxy looked genuinely happy for Jinkx in that clip on the other thread. Alaska, on the other hand, looked devastated.
Count me in as someone who was disappointed by Ru's choice of winners in Season 1 & 2, but now I also fear this "fan voting" thing, too.
I'm afraid that now that fan-voting and the live finale play such a big role in deciding the winner, future Queens will be shy to bring the drama, reading and shade. Jinkx, IMO, gained a lot of popularity for being "nice" and "sweet" which many of the growing frau fans ate up. Every Queen will be playing to be America's sweetheart, too.
Jinkx's fans appreciate his talent. I wasn't reading the threads and had no idea he was a frau or America's Sweetheart choice, I just thought he was funny. And likeable yes, but funny foremost. And prettier than Alaska too.
Nah, I don't think Jinkx won for being the nice one. She had a big fanbase coming in, and earned a bigger one almost immediately. Especially because Alaska faded in the background until about halfway through.
Alaska has quicker improv wit.
[quote]Roxxy looked genuinely happy for Jinkx in that clip on the other thread. Alaska, on the other hand, looked devastated.
I assume that was just a gag.
I've loved Jinx since her priceless Mimi Imfurst imitation. Alaska didn't start to shine until halfway through the season. She didn't even finish the first challenge. But I did like her once she broke free from that awful clique. I don't know why she ever hung out with those two.
Very interesting that Roxxy had not one relative in the audience. Didn't he say he had a sister? They didn't even bother to interview his "drag son".
Also, that was no chance, I feel, that Detox was going to win once she pissed on the stage during Snatch Game. I'm sure Ru has a few high standards when choosing the winner.
I dont get why jinkx was such a bitch to ivy. Jinkx had the crush. Ivy didn't feel it and looked at the nastiness jinkx spewed at the finale. Fucking loser.
Nastiness? You're delusional.
I didn't think Jinkx was nasty to Ivy at all.
She was all like "we were trapped in a cage and it was cause of desperation nothing else. I didnt know they were gonna air that" I was like WTF BITCH
No, she said words to effect of "put a bunch of gay guys in close quarters, there's going to be some sexual tension/crushes/activity etc." and that Ivy was the best looking so Ivy appealed to her the most.
I think it was because he was embarrassed. He was trying to sweep it under the table.
I agree with r61. The day after that episode aired Ivy specifically said Jinkx wasn't her type. One sided crushes are embarrassing.
When the former winners came on stage, I really didn't recognize Tyra Sanchez.
And I think Ms. Needles' face looks bad now with the fattened lips and whatever else she might have had done. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't like the exaggerated cosmetic work like Detox and Chad have on their faces.
Jinx latest Drag Becomes Him video showed him waking up with his boyfriend. He mentioned that his mom loves the new boyfriend.
Ha, check out this caricature of Alyssa Edwards I found. Her overbite makes her look like a Simpsons character.
When Sharon was guest bartender on Watch What Happens Live, she said that part of her prize money was spent on getting her lips done, r66.
The rest was spent on crystal meth.
I thought it was makeup, too. But apparently Sharon has always idolized Amanda Lepore, so it wouldn't necessarily surprise me if she follows in the footsteps of Chad and Detox.
You can't talk about frightening plastic surgery without mentioning Raven. She is terrifying.
In Chad Michael's defense, wasn't his face due to homemade Botox or botched plastic surgery?
[quote]In Chad Michael's defense, wasn't his face due to homemade Botox or botched plastic surgery?
Bootleg silicone injections.
Roxxy was serving Sara Lee realness ... specifically frosting and cake mix
[quote]In Chad Michael's defense, wasn't his face due to homemade Botox or botched plastic surgery?
How does that translate to defense? He fucked up. Big time.
Well in Chad's actual defense, he cautioned other queens against having plastic surgery. Detox seemed proud of it.
Several times around the Internets I've seen Detox fans chide people for making fun of his looks. They mention that his face was reconstructed after his accident. Still, does that account for the chest implants, the ass implants, and all that other shit?
R73 as soon as I wrote that I realized I erred. I meant more along the lines of what R74 said. He was trying to teach others to learn from his mistakes. Obviously it didn't scare Sharon Needles. That's too bad because he was a cute guy. I can't imagine what he looks like now.
I thought she was joking, but maybe Alaska really was distraught in that video of the three watching the crowning. Seems Jinkx is trying to comfort her.
First, I want to say CONDRAGULATIONS JINKX! I didn't say that last night after he won. He had a very impressive showing with 8 consecutive top 3 performances. The crowns get better looking every season. He has the prettiest.
This is the first season to have more than two threads with over 1278 comments.
Viewers need to stop trampling on Tyra Sanchez. He WON his season. It's not that Raven lost, it's that Tyra won. Tyra won 3 challenges out of 9 and was in the top three 3 other times. He never was in the bottom two. Bebe, I agree, shouldn't have won season one from what we saw. Nina was better at almost everything including the final lip sync. The show would have taken a totally different direction if Nina won. I've seen video of Bebe perform and he is just as impressive as the top contenders of his season. He just didn't bring it when he was on.
Alaska was on Elimination Lunch today. Very funny show. He said several times he is friends with Jinx. He cried after Jinkx won because he was thinking of his fans. Link below.
I love Jinkx a little less now that I know she doesn't uses Oxford commas...
Alaska was a pretty solid #2 IMO.
If there is another All Stars, please bring her back. They should also bring back Detox too.
So what drugs is Alaska on? She reminds me of someone who was on methadone and xanax. A fun person but a total fuck up.
Alaska is on meth. probably uses anything within a 5 block radius but meth is definitely drug of choice. He was tweaking for the reunion special.
Alyssa is going to be the breakout star of this season. There's something very compelling and likable about that queen.
Alyssa already has a show in the works.
I've seen a few comments about Alaska using drugs like meth and heroin and I'm wondering how people know this? Is this just gossip going around because she's so skinny or do you actually know her? I'm just curious because if it's well know that she's using, that would be a major factor in Ru going with Jinkx. Jinkx did really earn her win though and I was glad that for once my favorite wasn't in second place.
Alyssa is wonderful - can't wait to watch her new show.
Drag U has been cancelled. Ru announced it on twitter yesterday. I'm saddened. I was looking forward to Drag U this summer. That means there won't be any drag shows on until next January, 9 months away. I knew there would be a pullback in drag programming when All-Stars was announced last year. Logo executives wouldn't like that the network became too drag-centric. I now want to know if there will be another spin-off drag show or if Drag Race and Untucked are it.
Drag U sucked - a feel-good whitewash of drag for hausfrauen. Looking forward to another (non-team) All Stars, though.
Drag U = "Not on tonight!"
Drag U was horrible. It always featured the ugliest, trashiest women I've ever seen.
[quote]Drag U was horrible. It always featured the ugliest, trashiest women I've ever seen.
...and that was just the professors!
Drag U was a good show. I liked seeing the queens again and who would win. I loved Lady Bunny's segments.
Does Ru have a bf?
Yes, an Aussie.
What's an Aussie?
According to this article in Spin Magazine, Ru's 19-year boyfriend is a Wyoming rancher.
The thing I didn't like about Drag U was that it was so overly-scripted, and the queens were always in character within their drag personas (with probably pre-written dialogue). I like the balance of themselves and their alter egos on Drag Race. Aaron Coday is a fascinating individual and reality TV personality, but the Stupid Dead Girl schtick he does as Sharon Needles gets old FAST.
But it was nice as a placeholder between seasons of Drag Race.
I don't have time to read the Spin article right now. But I watched Ru's interview with Joan Rivers on YouTube a week or so ago. In that one, he said his bf is from Perth, but owns a ranch in Wyoming now.
Contrived. that's the word for Drag U. Every episode was forced into the same narrow confines.
I think they should have Drag Race Jeopardy. I'd pay to see Carmen Carrera, Tyra Sanchez and Roxxxie Andrews going hoof to hoof trying to figure out how to ring in (let alone answer anything correctly).
Or who would you select? (BTW - I'm giving the Puerto Rican ladies a pass even though some of them may be stoopit).
I've seen this commercial for America's Got Talent a couple of times now, in which you briefly see a black woman on stage doing Shangela's signature death drop. So I'm wondering if it's her. She's everywhere these days.
[quote] Shangela's signature death drop
You mean this death drop that has been done in houses of vogue for generations? Didn’t know it was Shangela’s to sign.
