RuPaul's Drag Race Season 11 Cast RuVeal: Let's Get... Underwhelming

You know you're running out of viable contestants when you start casting the drag daughters of luminaries like Sahara Davenport and Coco Montrese.

Here's the livestream reveal if you have two hours to waste watching Adam Rippon read from a teleprompter and Aquaria stumble over her words.

Brooke Lynn Hytes is this season's Kameron Michaels. She's also a former Miss Continental, though that didn't help Eliminaysha Lopez on S8.

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.

r15 Yeah, that Reddit sub is not as awful as people make it out to be, but it sure loves defending the indefensible. Like Naomi, for instance. It's all those compassionate fraus who just want everyone to get along.

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 Anonymousreply 1802/24/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 1902/24/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 2002/24/2019

And this fascinating reddit conversation should be kept holy and secret and contained there. By the way, Aquaria is a bit of a flop on the solo tour. Nothing but complaints everywhere she goes.

The first episode preview is up. I'm looking forward to Yvie Oddly, Brooke Lynn, Hytes, Ariel Versace, Soju, and Miss Vanjie. I have a feeling Scarlet Envy and Raj'ah O'Hara are going to be the assholes of the seasons. Nina West reminds me of Mimi.

by Anonymousreply 2602/26/2019

I wonder if DJ’s invitation to the Oscars stipulated that he had to come as “Shangela” or else he would have been turned away.

I wonder if these guys get sad that their drag persona is famous and beloved yet no one knows or cares about the man under the wig and paint.

I’m sure there will be a Netflix documentary about this topic in the near future, LOL

r26 That was a bit underwhelming for me. The only one that got me excited was Soju, but I have a feeling she's no Kim Chi. Even Silky Ganache wasn't as charismatic as in that interview with Rippon. I hope Scarlet Envy is the first one out.

r28 It's not Brooke's job to police her friends' drag. She apologized for posing with that person and I'm over it.

I liked Soju's nunchucks but her makeup made her look like Elvis. After he'd died on the crapper.

by Anonymousreply 3002/27/2019

r30 Yes, that's exactly why I think her drag isn't as polished as Kim Chi's. Her makeup looked like it was melting, and her wig wasn't that great either.

I enjoy Vanjie's confessionals a lot and I wonder how far she'll make it this time around. Bitch is so much fun to have around.

Yvie's mouth is [italic]huge[/italic] and it's horrifying but also titillating. I can't be the only one feeling this way?

by Anonymousreply 3102/27/2019

I feel like a little will go a looooong way with Silky but she has the potential to become a big fan favorite and we’ll be stuck with her for two seasons straight.

I’m also impressed with how fun Vanjie was in that preview. I personally found her very obnoxious in her episode last year but she’s one of the ones I’m most excited about this year which might say a lot about the casting this time around.

Well, Scarlet is the hottest guy out of drag. Though he has to be careful of his angles with that nose.

Kahanna and Yvie also catch the eye but both have let their drag affect their out of drag look (i.e. dem eyebrows).

Rahja in drag has Diana Ross Eyes.

I can see how Scarlet's couple of comments in the entrance would put people off. But I loved that in the Build interview after Plastique was prattling on about how hard he's worked, how he's bought ya da ya da ya da, Scarlet interjected with a "So have we all, bitch".

I think Nougat Fudge will grate very quickly.

Brooke Lynn isn't doing herself any favors with that drag name. "Brooke Lynn Hytes" sounds like some try-hard, hipster wannabe; Brooke seems to have more to offer than that.

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.

It was all too damn confusing with trying to keep track of 15 girls.

And we all know what those people are like, as we've had the distinct honour of having them here as well.

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? That wasn't even shade, it was just nastiness. Like she's above her and is offended she's even on the same show as her.

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.

I have met Mimi several times. She made it known that she was interested and put the moves on me. Once I let her know I wasn’t interested, she was nothing but understanding and respectful. 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.

All I’m saying is, take these allegations with a grain of salt.

by Anonymousreply 22203/04/2019

How do SJWs get laid?

They expect the other person to make all the moves! If that person is ugly, then it’s rape, but if that person is good looking, their aggressiveness is seen as confidence.

If someone they don’t like hits on them, they go along with it only to later cry rape.

In my 20s I got hit on by unwanted creeps all the time and if I didn’t like it, I’d tell them to stop (sometimes in a rude way, sometimes politely) and that was it.

Exactly. People just want to be asked whether they want to have sex with you, instead of getting pinned to the wall and assaulted because they obviously wanted it or they wouldn't be in a gay bar and drinking alcohol and dressed like sluts and...

by Anonymousreply 22603/05/2019

R224, the only times I’ve had a guy continue hitting on me after I told them to stop, was when they were shit faced drunk. That makes them drunks not rapists.

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.

by Anonymousreply 22703/05/2019

[quote]That makes them drunks not rapists.

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.

The Shangela story is strange, perhaps less so if the accuser is very young.

I was I'm on set with a majority of queens, and Silky was there. Yes, that's how she actually behaves. She'll actually just say stuff (with "Bitch") of course to no one in particular in the hopes that someone is going to listen. This was with a bunch of grips moving stuff around. 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.

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!”

Vanjie is hilarious in her confessionals. I don't get the Scarlett love- I thought she was very onenote. All of her IG photos are edited to soften her jaw and chin, and that's why she looks like a guy in a dress on the show.

Scarlett is sexy as a guy, and by Drag Race contestant looks standards, he is a god. That’s all the love is about, nothing more. He’s young and attractive. It’s not a lasting kind of attraction.

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. And when they do, it’s ripped apart for not being the type of woke the audience is feeling that week.

They’re damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. There’s no satisfying these people.

by Anonymousreply 28503/09/2019

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.

Many of my straight women coworkers love drag race and drag. At least here in DC, drag brunches have been a girls’-day-out thing for many, many years already. I don’t quite get the relationship dynamic or appeal, but sometimes when they talk about it it just seems like they see it as fun mindless entertainment, which it should be, and other times it takes me back to the days when women generally saw gay men as innocuous “best friends” who are not quite fully human and are great dumping grounds for all their troubles and worries.

by Anonymousreply 31603/12/2019

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 41403/19/2019

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 Anonymousreply 41503/20/2019

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.

I've never been Willam's greatest fan - but this is a great, relaxed and surprisingly less jizzed interview than he usually gives. It's almost like he's telling the truth. He's an actor.

by Anonymousreply 42503/20/2019

[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.

by Anonymousreply 42603/20/2019

William is a brat. He is not professional, has no integrity and is an admitted thief. He will never have the career of Jackie Beat because she knows the game and William is white trash with no tact or class.

Ru gave him so many chances even though he did not want the nasty drama that came with William.

He’s luck he made it 4 shows. He will continue to languish in mediocrity until he learns some professionalism.

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.

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.

She didn’t shine in the Rusical but I still like Ra’Ja. She seems smart and sweet and she’s pretty. If she had a huge budget for costumes, she’d probably kill the runway.

She’s not a screamer like Evie and Nutley and Vangie so she’ll probably sashay soon.

I definitely didn’t think Silky deserved that win, and I usually agree with Ru’s decisions.

The judges clearly have a hard-on for Ivie, and I just...don’t care for her. There are definitely a LOT of filler queens this season. Mercedes was simply terrible and the fact that she made it this far in says a lot about how underwhelming this group is.

But like I mentioned upthread, it's a classic mistake most everyone who is learning English makes. And to be fair to that teacher, she had a masters in French as well, so she was bound to mix up a word or two. But what's Silky's excuse? She's not from New Orleans, is she?

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. (See also: Sasha Velour)

by Anonymousreply 53503/23/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 53603/23/2019

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.

My point is, if Monet is delusional, she has an abundance of fake support making it so.

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.

I’m neither drunk nor alone, R546. And this was a friendly thread until you decided to show up and start calling people racist because they found a genuinely funny moment of Mercedes to be endearing.

The Vixen was not a “promising young man” who RuPaul humiliated. The Vixen was a toxic, malicious sociopath who humiliated himself on national television by exposing what an ugly and hateful human being he was. And a terrible queen at that. Tutus with a single thread attached to a misshapen bra and oatmeal-y makeup every challenge? Please.

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. Keep defending the indefensible until you have no voice left. What, are you going to say that Hitler wasn’t that bad because he had some Jewish blood in him?

I'd like a Good vs. Shevil season where it's Miss Congenialities (Ivy Winters, Katya, Nina Flowers) versus show villains like Phi Phi and Roxxxy. Or a full season remake of S7 with the same cast.

If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
