Eleven is an unlucky number for Drag Race. More and more people are over it. Who remembers Aquaria and Shea? Not too many. All Stars 3 & 4 seriously fucked with the shows popularity across demographics. People really did turn it off midway through All Stars 4. Not as many online reviews and youtubers cover it anymore. Drag Con and endless online selling from the alumni has made tawdry and cheap fun very expensive. Ratings are down and will continue to slide. People have many faves from the 140 queens who already competed. There's still talent out there but no reality left of the show. Ru, Carson, Michelle and Ross are a syphilitic and predictable panel. RuPaul chose the wrong time to expand his dementia. I mean empire.

They need to stop listening to Reddit. They obsess over the cheapest and least talented queens. Hopefully they learned their lesson when the scripted winner of AS4 Monet, who Reddit thinks invented drag, came in dead last in the general online voting, and was received with a collective eyeroll by the overall audience.
Also whenever Reddit faves like Naomi and Dusty are booked at a club because of their following online, they lose a ton of money because no one over the age of 14 wants to spend money to see Naomi and Dusty.

Yeah, but Reddit also does a lot of ironic stanning for queens they know aren't very good. They actually poke fun at Dusty, for example, for her awful fashions and her stupid "NEVAH LAHVD YA!" catchphrase.
The RPDRCringe sub is good for getting perspective on which queens are overrated in the main Drag Race sub.
|by Anonymous||reply 18||02/24/2019|
It's funny you say that, R18, because I actually find the Cringe sub cringier than the actual sub. It's mostly a bunch of camel-toe SJWs posting about things the queens do or say that doesn't fit whatever their acceptably woke point of view is that day of the week. It's essentially an Evergreen State College protest.

My favorite is when the main sub defended Monique for being a gay conversion therapist ("It's not like she used waterboarding or electroshock therapy!") and when they wanted RuPaul to be fired because she dared tell The Vixen to take accountability for herself at a time when The Vixen was treated as an infallible angel by the sub, and anyone who dared address her as anything else was immediately regarded as a racist.
It's such a cesspool of polluted hivemind.

Wow, R64. Miley is one of the few young female stars who can really sing. She uses autotune for effect and the sound that unfortunately is required to sell pop music now. But the girl can sing just fine on her own. Check her out covering Dylan or singing New York State of Mind with Billy Joel. Her delicate vibrato is very much like Dolly Parton's, but she projects in a much more raw (and nasal) way. But her low tones are gorgeous and her musicality is legit. POP singers are often a joke, but Miley is a much more talented vocalist than Ariana or Katy or Taylor or Katy or Bebe. She's respectable. And you can't have live autotune with the mic she sings with here.

For a minute there I thought you were referring to the actress from the movie GWTW, Vivian Leigh. But of course, the manly looking drag queen looks nothing like Vivian Leigh.
Which “Scarlett O’Hara” are you referring to?

He reminded me of the famous Scarlett resting bitch face in the red gown entering the b day party. Don't worry, Vivian Leigh is still very beautiful in GWTW and he doesn't come close like that.

I've heard people saying she's like Mimi Imfurst and Eureka in one. But neither of those were nasty. Did you hear Silky unload on Soju immediately after coming backstage on Untucked?

r182 She explained it during the first viewing party for AllStars 4. She said when enough people tell you that your name bothers them because it's problematic, you have to decide if it's worth the bother and just change it.

This was way before her “#MeToo” allegations came out. Although I have no way of knowing if they did in fact happen, I know how she behaved with me (in a situation where alcohol was involved, which says a lot) and I suspect her accusers were people who thought they could benefit in some way from behaving as if they were victimized.

R226, I actually was raped. I don’t mean a drunk grabbed my balls either. Actual rape. I was 13 and he was in his 30s. And I did seek help eventually and since then, I’m pretty open about it to. Not once have I been accused of being an SJW.
Now I have to deal with losers like you who think a drunk grabbing them is rape. In most cases I hear about this, the “victim” admits to going along with it and assuming the other person should’ve read their minds. And of course instead of going to cops they instead go on social media anonymously.
The metoo movement is now stalling because of all the petty accusations made by snowflakes as yourself. It went from taking down the Weinsteins to now targeting Asia Ansari or whatever his name is. It went from actual rape victims to now being rich white privileged snowflakes who have lived in a bubble their whole lives and think a bad date is rape.

No, it makes them sex pests who should not be drinking if they can't take no for an answer as a result of their drinking. Alcohol does not absolve you of any responsibility as you made the choice to drink it in the first place and in doing so accepted the responsibility for everything that might stem from that decision. Being drunk or sober makes no difference when it comes to sexual assault.

Makes me dislike her even more.
Trinity is surprisingly petite in person, and despite her nose job, it's still pretty prominent. It must have been huge prior the surgery. Raven looks weird with hair when he's a guy, The Brown Cow's (can't remember the name) makeup skills have not improved (usually everyone's skills improve post productions). Pandora is adorable, and very quiet. Jujube is a cutie. I'm hoping that Katya and Kim Chi will be there today.

Unfortunately, she hasn't really elevated her drag since S2, and she fucked up her momentum by acting like a brat on All Stars.

Scarlet's delivery of the Pretty Woman quote in the talking head part after she got picked last, solidified why I like her. There's a sense of humour there. All haughty bitches/potential villains need to find the joy in their lane, otherwise they become buzzkills - like the Vixen trying to end Aquaria with "you're not funny" rather than with an actually funny putdown.

I don't object to Scarlett and Yvie winning as a duo but I don't think I'd support a solo win from either, especially Yvie. There's something very hack about her "freak" persona. I didn't think the crazy laugh bit was funny at all.

Question. Do the producers prompt and teach contestants to speak in the unique candence and emphasis that Drag Race contestants always use and I have never heard anywhere else? When they’re being “funny” in skits, or even just reading one another, they emphasize the most random words in a way that no one would ever do, and I don’t get it at all. It’s a hallmark of this show for me, so it makes sense on those terms, but even in porn actors deliver lines like their brain circuitry isn’t out of order, unlike on this show.
Example: “You ARE a dirty scumbag. WHY don’t YOU get out of HERE!”

R282, unfortunately the show is at a place where the fan base consists of shrill harpies screeching WHY DOESNT THE SHOW REPRESENT XYZ?! THIS IS PROBLEMATIC!!!! I’ve never seen a show been called racist/transphobic as much as one hosted by a black drag queen. There’s essentially a gun pointed at the show to shovel in #Woke material every single week.

R285 I agree with you, and I also think people who reject those notions are often equally overly invested in what this show does thematically. It is a satire of America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway starring men in dresses and makeup giving intentionally poor performances. If anything EVER in the history of mankind ever demanded not to be taken seriously, it is this. And yet social justice warriors and defenders of the old ways alike are obsessively concerned with RuPaul’s nefarious motivation to make money, his cruel—SO CRUEL!—ways of not legally adopting every contestant and suckling them from the breast, with the casting and the obviously scripted plot devices and winners. Take it for what it is. It’s a trifle. You don’t expect a sophisticated and complex flavor profile from a Twix. You just shove it down knowing there’s nothing worth thinking about. That is what this show is. But holy fuck are people concerned with it.

I'm not interested in arguing because it's not that important. But the Blank Panther satire was once again in very bad taste and surprisingly stupid coming from Drag Race. The show has become a bad race play porn lots of times over the last few years. It's not subversive to sell out to confused white teens and old biker chicks. Lots of the alumni have called Drag Race out on it. It's not a national outrage since it's been long established that Ru prefers to be a white woman himself - who occasionally gives you a neck roll, some Tyraisms and blaxploitation speak.
Black Panther is not sacred, but our community did not deserve those white bitches doing that to it. The fact that most of the commenters here and elsewhere preface their opinions with "I haven't seen that movie" tells you all you need to know. The real Black Panther had a beautiful concept that was wonderfully realized and meaningful to our community. It's not above being satirized, just not the Rupaul way. Fuck him. He's a winner. He didn't save drag, he's on his way to ruining it.

Yes. That was terrible. It didn't seem like any of them knew the first thing about Mariah. Drag queens usually have a grasp on popular music even if it's a little older.

The latest Roscoe's viewing party was so delightful, I watched the whole thing from beginning to end. T Rex, Detox, Shuga Cain, and Kahanna had a really nice chemistry going on.
It turned me into a Shuga Cain fan, honestly. She knows who she is, just like Nina West. It's so interesting to see which queens mature and which stay or get even more batchit crazy as they get older. Just like in real life, I suppose.

Finally got to watch this week's episode today and everyone is right - that Mariah skit stunk to high heaven. It wasn't only that no one knew anything about Mariah Carey, but there weren't any funny lines or characterizations, no give-and-take dialogue (almost seemed as if everyone was simply yelling at each other) and the song and performance was horrible from the start. Untucked was a mess due to Honey Roasted Almonds - first she rants about being offended by the Britney skit because of her religion, saying she really had problems with saying Britney was their god (?!?), but then moments later, she's shouting "Goddamn" and "Godammit" at people. Then to make things even more dramatic, she tears off the front of her outfit.

As much as I want Miss Vanjie to win, and I truly do, I wonder if it wouldn't be better for her career not to. A lot of non-winners have gone on to great rewards. With Drag Race becoming so Frau-ridden and mainstream, I feel like a win is devalued in a way, and the winner ends up pandering to the straights for the duration of their contract. Bianca is an anomaly as she won before the new contract (you basically sell your soul for 2 years) was in effect. That said, after re-reading the contract (below, and is worth the read) you are fucked even when you sign-on, let alone win. Ugh.
|by Anonymous||reply 415||Last Wednesday at 12:28 AM|
I didn't read the contract, but the contract obligations and strangulations are exactly why Bendala eliminated herself before she made Top 5. It was all very orchestrated as what was contractually obligated changes for the top 5. As much as I think Bianca is a hack and very stale to look at or listen too, she does run her own gig for the most part. As does Sharon Needles and Jinkx. I agree R415, to see all the recent participants, be enslaved to the Drag Race franchise is a big downer. Vanjie isn't so much a loose cannon as a real talent. Maybe not only as a drag queen. Boy is funny and can act.

[quote]Willam is an interesting subject, if not quite as interesting he finds himself.
He is interesting.
I think what really drives his animosity toward Ru is this:
He owes probably 90% of his notoriety to Ru, and he resents the hell out of that. I think he feels that if it wasn’t for Ru, he still would have had a successful career, along the lines of Jackie Beat or Coco Peru. And he probably would have. For Ru’s part, she genuinely feels that the queens who come through her show are her children and that they owe her a certain amount of respect.
So there’s a clash of egos at work here and I don’t think it will ever be resolved, unfortunately. That said, I think the hate that’s directed toward Ru is almost always really unfair. I feel an affinity toward her as both a fellow introvert and as an old-school gay man who often finds younger generations of LGBT folk somewhat befuddling.

Actually Netflix series rarely go beyond three seasons. Most get two unless they truly bomb. Netflix has done studies (they are totally data driven) which show anything beyond three seasons typically does not add value or bring new subscribers and they have pretty much stuck to this with the exceptions of House of Cards, OITNB and Kimmie Schmidt. This may change with some of their owned and operated properties like Stranger Things where they don't have to pay huge license fees. They also don't need to make 100 episodes any more - 40 or 50 is seen as sufficient. They also learned that there's no need to do 13 episodes - 10 is seen as the most you would do in a season. They also put a poison pill in their contracts that does not allow another network to pick up a cancelled Netflix series until at least two years later.

They are a pretty talented bunch. That was a complicated lip synch and movement and so many of them really shone. Silky absolutely deserved the win but Nina and Evie were delicious too. I love Tiffany Pollard. Exactly the wack choice guest judge the show needs sometimes. Ginger Minj was a great comic foil as Trump. The Maddow bit takes us all the way back to similar one shot challenges in season one and three. It was a fun, trashy episode that also worked as surprisingly good entertainment. I don't feel Miss Scarlet at all though she did an precise job. I think Evie is fascinating and oddly sexy. Top three material. Same as Silky, Vangie. Brooklyn or Nina.

This one was so fun. Hilarious to do have those orange looks. We learned about Nina West. Scarlett cast the show pretty well. Poor Vanjie though, she could have captured Rosie O'Donnell a little bit more but she has nothing of the appearance or physicality of Rosie so it was uphill for her. I was just wondering what was going on with Yvie's skull so now I know. It's funny one or two on them weren't sure if Yvie wasn't on top. Honey, she's killing it. She did a colorful, fun, unusual outfit and even made a character to go with it.

But like I mentioned upthread, it's a classic mistake most everyone who is learning English makes.

Agree about the Roscoe's viewing party this week. Very entertaining. Tea was spilled all over. No one loves Ru or WOW or the food. Monet had the guts to say that she wasn't thrilled at first to share the crown with Trinity!! Like she had ANY fucking chance of winning on her talents. Plenty of inside info about how they make the sausage. Monet is pretty obnoxious but she sure thinks she's swell. Trinity has always been bitchy but she's impatient Diva bitchy now and talks way too much about $$$ Plus she needs to eat something. But the bitch looks great and there's always something subversive about her - she's rooting for Yvie to win!
Asia was pretty funny - the only one to put Monet - in her Endora pussycat wig back in her seat and make her shut the fuck up, several times. Asia turned down All Stars 4, but hinted she is doing 5. She was smart to travel and make some money first. Ginger Minj is still a tacky old toad but someone very real and thoughtful. Another child actor who finds real success in drag. Her episode of Hey Queen is the most painfully sincere I've ever seen. Not in a bad way, I just sort of felt sorry for her. There's someone trying to be a better person and succeeding.
Drunk Monet molests a lot of dudes and also gives out her bank account number and invites people to send her money. At which point they all shut up and the party's over.

Drag Race has this weird fandom made up of Millenials and GenZ who are part racist and part fighters for social justice and they've decided to all use this program to further their agendas. It's men wearing clown makeup and dressing in women's clothes, it's not that deep. I'm black and even I saw the tie in AS4 as a way to address the fact that there had never been a queen of color winner. Monet is nice and was good for a few laughs, but an all star she is not. With all the incredible queens of color, it sucks that a mediocre one had to get the crown to quiet this odd fanbase.

I’m so sick of hearing about how Shangie was robbed of the All Stars win and fans blaming the show. If you have a problem with it, blame Aja, Milk, Morgan, and the other petty bitches who voted against her.
Yes, Trixie was weak in that season but she’s a great person to carry the winner label with her touring and entertaining media appearances. In contrast, Aquaria excelled in the challenges and technically won, but she’s so awkward and dull as dishwater that the S11 ruveal and Fashion Photo Review is like watching a train wreck.

Of course, most sane people agree R534. But what Ru allowed the producers to do to Shangela was particularly cruel. Did the young fanbase want Trixie to win, no doubt. Did she perform well enough to win the crown. Hell no, she was terrible. So they forced a fake jury decision on returning queens who were told how to vote. Even gender confused teens are not that stupid. Shangela is a sore spot. The show was once and surely rigged. At least Trixie had the good sense and money to admit that she didn't deserve to win. Monet thinks she legitimately won, over Trinity !?! Crazy bitch is the worst token winner of all time. I can't stand her. And not because she's ugly and her drag is sloppy. She doesn't know herself or she would know better than Brooklyn. Aja would make a more deserving All Star's Winner and she's a busted delusional big mouth bitch too. Monet can hire the best stylists, wig makers and writers, get lipo and a new nose, travel the world and attend finishing school. Money can't buy her talent.

Monet is incredibly delusional, but you should’ve seen Reddit the day after the tie. So many posters saying what a SACRILIGE it was that Monet had to share the win with someone else. It’s this weird hive mind thing of people karma whoring for free woke points for supporting a black queen and a queen with average skills. It also applies to behaving like The Vixen and Phi Phi are these misunderstood saints and anyone who disagrees is downvoted to shit.
This is why I love DL. People actually speak their mind and the honest truth because there aren’t imaginary internet points at stake.

I'm neither white or muslim. What has that got to do with bad taste old white men demeaning reddit as a defender of "woke" folk. The Vixen had good points and Ru's treatment of her proved how far he would go to suck teenage white dick and humiliate a promising young black man who called him out as a white woman sell out. If you're woke enough, you see everything. There are always racist posters on DL Drag race threads. And most any other DL thread.
Mercedes was cast BECAUSE she is Muslim. Her talent didn't warrant her being on this show. It's a cynical show and the same as any other reality mess. Except that people are a bit more humiliated on Drag Race while others are protected. Watch the Roscoe's viewing party. The queens are always ready to say. Eureka and Aquaria WERE racists who tormented The Vixen and disrespected Monet, Monique and Asia. Trinity knows and Ginger does too. The successful black girls keep their mouths shut. But not all of them. Bob the Drag Queen supported The Vixen, as did Courtney Act, Pandora Box, Jujubee and Willam. It's very easy to see after the fall. White does not equal racist. Racist white = racist. Whitewashed race traitors like Rupaul = racist too. Some people have real problems. There are so many of y'all to go round. Mercedes was an embarrassment. That's what tokenism gets you.

The fact that you’ll defend The Vixen in that situation and act like RuPaul was this racist monster shows just how warped your thinking is and how little credibility you have.
