They need to STOP with the long, elaborate, unfunny musical numbers. Please. It’s always ten minutes of queens neck swivelimg, eye rolling and delivering shamefully bad puns. Trying to layer on a political message as they did with the Trump one just makes things worse.

I don't understand why they can't improvise their own comedy. Vanjie & Silky were hilarious when they went rogue without trying in the horror/panther skit. They also wouldn't have to waste money on hack writers.

by Anonymousreply 1403/25/2019

The politics really annoyed. This show has done a great job of representing a broad spectrum of real gay people, showing off their creativity and talent, and humanizing them to a mainstream audience. Going all-in on an anti-Trump narrative is going to alienate the people who need to watch the show most. I get that drag is inherently political and subversive, but the show has been pandering to straight and flyover audiences for a while now. And it doesn't help that every joke in the musical was obvious and played out.

R15 is delusional!!!

Yes had it not been for this last episode, Trump suppprters would’ve fallen in love with this show and all racism in the USA would’ve been a thing of the past!

Stop being so pathetic! You’re like one of those log cabin losers who refuses to hold hands with the man they love because then you won’t be accepted!

by Anonymousreply 1603/25/2019

Oh GOD, R16. Read what I wrote. There are two ways people try to promote their political agenda. There are those who stomp their feet and say outlandish things like IF YOU DON'T SUPPORT THIS, UNFRIEND ME which makes people defensive and puts up their walls. There's also those who choose to focus on people and not "issues" which allows them to organically come to an understanding and acceptance of people they might have had prejudices against. The latter option is far more effective, and it's why the show has become very successful with the religious audience of VH1.

It's brainwashed sheeple like you who call those who strive for nuance "pathetic" (and accuse them of being Republicans because they don't want to play into the division that is destroying this country) who are going to ensure that he's elected for four more years. But you obviously don't care about that. It's all about showing off how superior and "moral" you think you are.

by Anonymousreply 1703/25/2019

R17,

You’re a freaking idiot. I’m actually a moderate. Most SJWs hate me. This is not me pushing an agenda. It’s me thinking you’re pathetic because you think some niche show that no deplorable would watch is gonna make an impact in politics.

You probably believed Jussie Smollet when he claimed to be attacked by deplorables who happen to watch Empire and know every character on that show.

You’re the type who seem two gay men holding hands and thinks: this is why they hate us!

by Anonymousreply 1803/25/2019

Nuance? On Drag Race. You are desperate for acceptance and a bit out of touch R17. Trump The Rusical was just fine. Corny and not bad. It needed a better Ivanka that's all. Do you object to Saturday Night Live's lame satires too?

This episode was quite good to be honest. One of the better lips sync and dance challenges, though little of the difficult choreography was ultimately performed. Why do DL Drag Race viewers expect Broadway style productions from complete amateurs anyway? Half of whom are instagram models and the other half drag pageant queens? It's about characterization, movement and lip synching if you can pull it off. Yvie, Brook Lynn, Plastique, Nina and Scarlett all did that pretty well in this presentation.

Bitch Perfect is still the best one they've done. Because it's all RuPaul's music with better singers and it wasn't so disjointed. It had a theme and it built to something. The dance breaks were free style and well done. The concept of bad girls vs good girls is easier to relate to than political satire of obscure women. And the cast, other than Kim Chi, performed it very well.

So they humanized humans? How strange. Not everyone is equally villainous or virtuous, but most people can be sent up. RPDR celebrates drugs, prostitution, butt sex, promiscuity, extremely foul language, nudity and heathenism. Does this make "them" hate us. No, because they aren't watching.

Finally had a chance to watch the latest episode and I agree with those who wrote the musical numbers need to be shortened. Can't understand why Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs got the win for the week. Her Oprah was okay - despite her complaining and criticisms during the handing out of the roles, she did look like Oprah but the performance itself was average, same with the runway look. Also getting tired of all of the complaints from Ra'jah. Really thought she was going to have a fit during the choreography rehearsals. (Didn't help that she was greatly overshadowed by Brooke Lynn.) Didn't really mind Joel McHale on the judge's panel and thought some of Michelle's reactions were scripted, there was once or twice where it appeared she was trying to keep from laughing.

Her voice is amazing, kind of reminds me of danny devito, it makes everything she says hilarious... at least it's not some annoying femme-voice. She has a very unique and funny personality that has clearly earned her a lot of fame and fortune, how successful are you, R28?

I could give a rats ass about her in real life and I’m only opining on what I see on a stupid reality show.

by Anonymousreply 3003/26/2019

I wouldn't say this show has done so much for gay people. It has done so much for drag queens and humanizing them. News flash, all gay men aren't the biggest walking gay stereotype in the world. I know they think by giving back stories to the queens that we are supposed to learn they come from all walks of life...which is of course true. But they're still ultimately "representing" a fraction of gay people. This is part of a bigger problem with reality TV and sticking people in a box and creating characters but I digress. Another news flash, I'm pretty sure most people already related drag to gay guys. I watch the show because I do find it entertaining and Rupaul has a funny bone I wish more people had. But as a gay man watching who doesn't do drag, sometimes the show seems like its intentionally reinforcing stereotypes. Like I said earlier, that seems to be what all 'cultures' have been doing lately with SJW's and all that nonsense.

by Anonymousreply 3103/26/2019

Representation starts somewhere and you can't represent all kinds of gays at the same time because that's impossible. Also, this is going to sound awful but not every type of gay guy is interesting enough to merit representation - why do you think [italic]Looking[/italic] bombed? People want to be entertained, not bored out of their minds. I certainly wouldn't watch a reality show about my nerdy, boring-ass life.

RuPaul’s drag race needs more RuPaul. He needs to interact more with the queens, involve himself more in the challenges, and be more verbal with communicating criticisms during the runway.

When the show was only one hour, we seemed to have more Ru than we do with 90 minutes.

From the Feast of Fun podcast with special guest Stacy Layne Matthews:

The legendary "sugar daddy" dust-up between Mimi Imfurst and Shangela on S3 Untucked was a legit fistfight with actual blood. Production shut down for three months while they figured out what to do, and the public was told that it was because Ru had a health scare.

Alexis Mateo also confirmed the fight on Hey Qween with Johnny McGovern.

I never watched this show until this season...couldn’t get into it till now.

He has always been cheerful and positive which is rare for a drag queen.

Boring old men here on DL. Drag Race fanbase is not all on reddit and instagram. Rupaul doesn't even read as a drag queen. He's just a dressed up character from a convention. The show was designed to be a send up of America's Next Top Model and Project Runway. That was fun idea and Ru was fun playing the dual role of Tim Gunn and sketchy Tyra Banks. RuPaul doesn't have the brain cells or the integrity to be taken seriously now that the he's sold out for every mag cover and award and walk of fame. There's nothing remotely subversive about RuPaul. He's kind of gross. I am not old enough to know him from when he was a bad rat hood ornament in the 80s. But I know it's over rated nonsense. RuPaul's fame is directly related to his drag look of the nineties. That's why he chose Bebe, Tyra and Raja as winners of the first 3 seasons. They were meant to be versions of himself. He's out of his depth now and the show makes all the decisions for him. That would be fine if weirdo's would stop insisting he has such integrity and presence. The stories about Ru in the late nineties when he still did bar appearances are legendary and not kind. He is not kind and a lousy performer. Terrible to promoters and is audience. He's not even pretty. Just a fantastic kind of illusion. Courtesy of others.

He's not up to the shows demands but won't make a stand to return it to something more what he had in mind at the beginning. Not a single other drag queen has ever served as a guest judge. He knows that Alaska, Bianca, Shangela, Willam, Aquaria, Sasha and Courtney would bring in more viewers. VH1 will make the decision for him, pretty soon. Rupaul is a check casher. Even for Charity Events, he demands to be paid. Weird dude.

He was cool when he was a club kid, but he became a cunt after he adopted full-on glamour drag in the late '80s and started winning contests like Queen of Manhattan.

Oh, I'm sorry my post above was such a mess of syntax and spelling errors. I am busy with other things. Shangela, I'm sorry but you're out. Please leave the runway. Manila, you are no longer in the running to be America's Next Top Model. Shea you won the whole season - but it's been determined that you didn't use the 3D printer in your final look. Sascha wins! Monet, I crown you because you're black fat and untalented. Let this be my legacy.

"Hahha hahahhaa haa. Jinkx, you're funny. And you did quite well in the competition?"

"Hah, Yes I did. I won." Michelle: "hahahhahhha HAH! Ru you have a terrible memory." 'Oh she won?' Ad nauseum, all without irony. RuPaul has no feeling for his own show or even his own "favorites." A total fake. Painful.

Who's the grandpa brain trust at R43? When I need an editor, I'll call you. Try saying something insightful next time. I don't hate Ru. I see him clearly. Most people under your age do.

Viewed the preview of the upcoming episode (had to go on Facebook since neither R26 or R27 wanted to open for me). OMG, what is the problem with Ra'jah? I think Yvie had a good point when she said Ra'jah was okay with a strategy of being in the bottom two and being able to lip every week if it meant she stayed in the Race. But then Ra'jah goes on the attack with all types of nasty insults in the confessional. ("I'm from Dallas, the Big D!" Who cares!) Seems to have that same attitude every episode.

I really enjoyed the early seasons. It felt subversive. Now all the runway talk is canned and awful.

Was it a necessary thing for Yvie to say? No, but they are drag queens putting on TV show. If they all tried to be super nice that would be a pretty boring show.

So far at least, I think everytime Yvie has come for someone at least she has been correct.

R60, it wasn’t inappropriate. RaJah has been making non stop excuses since this show started. Only snowflakes have a problem with her being right but being harsh. I don’t care about people being harsh when telling the truth (something Yvie does) the problem is being harsh while telling a lie (something The Vixen excelled at).

Mimi was outed as a sex pest. He runs his own Drag Race–like competition in Philadelphia called Drag Wars, and it's a pretty big deal for local queens who want to make a name for themselves. He was pressuring queens he found attractive to have cybersex with him under threat of being eliminated from Drag Wars or generally blacklisted from the Philly drag scene.

Surprisingly, it hasn't affected his career—he still does Drag Wars and is touring with the latest Haters Roast. He is getting roasted about the sex stuff by the other RuGirls on the tour, though, and he doesn't like it.

I mentioned this before on another thread. I know Mimi somewhat casually. She's put the moves on me before. I let her know I wasn't interested and she was nothing but a polite gentleman about it. Maybe other people had a bad experience with her, but I genuinely believe these accusers are people who thought they could exploit a #MeToo angle for attention by making her out to be a "sex pest" that she isn't.

I get nothing out of defending Mimi fucking Imfurst. But I do believe my experience should be taken into account before anyone comes to some conclusion that she's some monstrous predator.

Ru has been putting on dresses since the 70s r74, he was doing drag and getting attacked back when it still took balls to be out on the streets as a crossdresser. No one was paying him, he was just living his life. As all the queens of that era were, there was no drag race or world tours to achieve. These days being a drag queen barely takes any courage and a like of gay performers do it because it is a ticket to success.

R72 et. al., that is a mischaracterization. Mimi Imfurst was chatting with at least one of those men BEFORE he actually became a contestant. All the alleged victim had to do was say, "Hey, Mimi, I'm trying out for 'Drag Wars.' Therefore, I think we need to keep our interactions professional from now on. Thanks for understanding!" Done.

Instead, we get the endless hand-wringing about, "Will this hurt my drag career?" Please. As if Mimi Fucking Imfurst is some huge power player. As if there's only one way to do drag in Philadelphia.

Yvie Oddly has talked about the pressure she faced coming up against the other queens in Denver, which I'm sure has a much smaller drag scene than Philly, and she still managed to make it onto this season. Yeah, yeah, so Yvie wasn't "sexually harassed." Or maybe she just has a thicker skin.

I just don't know why all of the impetus is on Mimi to make sure these guys are 100% comfortable in every interaction. Yeah, yeah, because Mimi is the one with the power. So no one with a modicum of power is allowed to flirt anymore, even within such a tiny, insular community?

I guess it's easier to attack an established star by riding on the coattails of true survivors than to keep honing your craft and develop an act that people want to see.

Drag Race doesn't need RuPaul to be a success. Bianca, Alaska and Courtney could easily take over the show. The perfect combination of hosts.

The lip synch was terrible. You get the great Whitney Houston's I'm Your Baby Tonight and that's it? Should have been a double elimination. Shuga Kain is obnoxious on and off the runway. That's an old man with a completely fake way of speaking and being. Not even other stunt queens would attempt that romper room Blaccent. Don't waste Whitney on these losers.

Brooklyn didn't deserve the win either. Bad week. Ru looked like some old tired badly dressed bar queen. Shite.

These queens need to figure out that RuPaul and Michele are "old school" music fans who don't care about Miley or Ariana or whichever flavor of the month. So when they get the list of songs to be prepared to lip sync, the queens should spend their time on making their Olivia and Kylie and Madonna and Whitney performances spectacular and fun since those are the ones that hold the judges' attention.

If you kill the lip sync on "Bad Girls" you might earn a ticket to the finale. If you kill the lip sync on "Break Up With Your Boyfriend, I'm Bored" the judges will shrug their shoulders.

by Anonymousreply 12903/30/2019

I don’t think Scarlet is terribly handsome as a man. She definitely doesn’t look “fishy” as a queen. She’s just so odd-looking, and Im captivated by it. I want to see more.

I adore Vangie and think she’ll make it further than Silky (she should, at least), but she needs to win like the next three challenges at this point if she wants to make it to the top 3.

Yvie will either be too 3, or she’ll implode in the next 2 episodes. And I still don’t care for her. She’s giving me Sharon Needles 2.0 and one of her was enough.

by Anonymousreply 13103/30/2019

Ariel, although one of the more attractive guys on this season, deserved to be on the bottom simply due to totally misreading the challenge and coming onto the runway in that mermaid outfit. However, out of the other two bottom looks, I think Silky deserved the other lip sync spot over Shuga. Silky's looks - for yet another week - were nothing spectacular and also seemed to misinterpret the challenge (I couldn't even tell she was supposed to be a unicorn until it was mentioned - totally lost the horn in the hair; as mentioned in the critiques, she didn't resemble a wicked-looked Evillene from "The Wiz" at all; and that red latex (?) number was bad in design and presentation).

If the people who are always trashing Ru and who are always coming for her crown had half the drive and ambition that he did, they wouldn't need to base their whole careers on trashing Ru. And that's the problem with this generation and people like Pearl and The Vixen, they want all the glory and all the fame, they just don't want to do the motherfucking work. Ru did the work and he doesn't have to explain himself to anyone about his choices.

I have often wondered who would be left of the fanbase if you took out the racists, the social justice butterflies, and all the victims.

by Anonymousreply 13603/30/2019

That was some bullshit right there.

First off, thank fuck Ariel got booted. Annoying, whining and not half as talented as she thought she was. Stop bitching about Scarlet and concentrate on you're own drag Ariel.

The biggest WTF was Scarlet being robbed of the win. She met the brief and then some with her originality and conception. Sure it wasn't 100 per cent polished, but for fuck sake some two dollar dinosaur feet was a fucking travesty as was toilet paper and a plastic snake wrapped around Brooke Lynn. Scarlet looked phenomenal in all her looks and she opted to go for some obscure references which I very much appreciated and she had a running theme throughout all looks. What pissed me off though wasn't just that she wasn't acknowledged, the edit went out of its way to make her look like a hack. Fuck that.

Nina did great. I liked Plastique. Yvie is so overrated. All her looks were either shit or basic. I love Silky but she deserved to be in the bottom over Suguh. Brooke Lynn danced down the runway and they all wet themselves. Fuck that.

Bonus points for Plastique looking exactly like Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen in the doll challenge. Freaky.

R148 should turn off the show. Most men should not appear on camera or on the street without their shirts on. Silky is one of them. My only comment is that her body shape makes it difficult to create and control a good silhouette for the runway. She's smaller than Eureka but their weight distribution is very different. Silky can paint a pretty mug and has polished pageant girl style. She shone as Oprah. That white dress, her attitude and makeup were everything and I completely get why she won. For a quick minute she completely channelled Oprah AND she performed well.

Silky is far more polished than Monet XChange Counter was on either of her seasons. R148 is disgusted by her fat. She's not hiding it. I get it. That's all you have to say. Unless you have another agenda.

The Vixen is a cute guy and a good stage performer. She really fucked it up for herself though. Thrown off all the Werk the World and Drag Race tours. She did do Drag Con though and recently appeared at Princeton. Black Girl Magic at Roscoes does well and gets a lot top level guests. Bob, Shea, Monet, Chci Chi, Asia and Coco Montrese have all guest appeared in BGM when in Chicago. So I don't think Vixen minds too much. He has lots of supporters in the Drag Race alumni from all backgrounds and seasons. He certainly isn't the craziest or meanest and far from the dumbest contestant ever on RPDR.

The subdued crowd at Roscoe's has been a source of onstage comment by some of the queens in recent weeks. The audience really lets a queen know if she's a favourite or not.

Yvie doesn't make any facial expressions when she speaks. It's a "what's the big deal?", blank-faced affectation she uses when she says something dramatic or negative. I interpret it as a defense mechanism; her interpretation of what appearing invulnerable might be. It's like, "Sometimes one of my legs falls off.😐"

These ugly bitches have been performing really well in the challenges. Its not a great runway season, but overall Eleven is better than 10, 9, and 8. Akeria did do that gold dress beaded feather 10 grand pageant gown justice. Brooke Lynn Hytes and Yvie seem pretty sure final four contenders too. I want to see them lip sync, because I'm curious. I get that Nina is a broad, funny and wised up performer - but her drag is terrible. Silky is looking like a classic RPDR formula - lots of airtime, probably another win coming - then that painful last elimination before the finale. Raja and Shuga Cain't can go NOW but Miss Scarlet ain't done yet....

Hang on. Was I seeing things or did they pixelate out the nipples on the fake tits? Has it really come to this? They got the WORD tits in, the showed us (horrifyingly) Silky's REAL tits, nipples and all . But they fucking censored the nipples on the fake tits? This show is getting more Disney-fied by each episode, I swear.

Why doesn't Vangie, at least once in a while, cover up that horrible tat with Dermablend, or spackle, or whatever? It's distracting as fuck and with good makeup totally unnecessary. Is it a "statement"? I don't get it. I find all of these bitches tattoos distracting, but hers is particularly so. I also thought her runway look was lame.

Plastique did look gorgeous in her runway look, but yeah, her whole storyline this episode was suspect enough even without that boyfriend video. I've never seen Ru so gooey as I did in the workroom scene. I respect Alyssa Edwards and enjoyed seeing her, but the trifecta of Ru, Alyssa and the video of Plastique's boyfriend *and* a win was ridiculously over the top and painfully obvious (though she did perform very well). My guess is she goes home next, and this was scripted to make Ru look lovable. I'm a cynical cunt, what can I say...

I think Vangie is fun, but comparing her to Alyssa is a stretch. Yes, both have similar humor, but Alyssa is a first rate dancer and choreographer. What is Vangie's talent? She can't sew which is why this last look was a disaster. Ropes tied around the tatooed chest. I can't believe she was safe and I really like Vangie, but I think it's time for her to go.

I think Vangie will make it to the top 3. I love her, but agree her runway looks are generally not up to par (to put it mildly after this last look). No way they will have her win after she was the first one out on her first season. That might be best for her. Keep her the scrappy underdog, only with more status. She'll probably win her season of All Stars.

Finally got to see this week's episode and it was another instance where Untucked was so much better than the actual show. What really is/was Rajah's problem, not only with the other queens but life in general? Seemed like she was ready to be belligerent and start fights with anyone and everyone as well as being rude and nasty in almost every backstage and confessional scene. Attacking Plastique because she just happened to be lucky enough to have three moments this week, including an affirmation from RuPaul? And she was also angry about Platique's comments about not being accepted by her family but, in her boyfriend's video having him say he and Plastique's mother and grandmother were watching the show and cheering her on - did Rajah ever stop and consider that one side of Platique's family accepted her while the other side was diametrically opposed? She also made the strange comment that the only reason she kept being chosen for the bottom looks and forced to lip sync as because "it made for good television". Delusional.

And speaking of delusional, Silky had another week of strange behavior. From her preparing for the mini challenge with her obsessive talk of "titties" to her seemingly inability to create designs (granted, other queens have faced the same flaw) to her Untucked proclamation that the home audience is in love with her and all of the other queens hate her because of it, not the fact that she's coasting through all of the challenges and getting by because she's a "personality".

That's the first time in 25 years that Rupaul has been made up and photographed to look black. He's on the RuDemption Tour for sure. And she needs it. Old nasty man is a mess.

Shuga sucks. Very entry level.

She is literally entry level r336, she just started doing drag shortly before coming on the show.

The sneak peek for this week’s episode is out. It’s Snatch Game!

by Anonymousreply 340Last Tuesday at 9:10 AM

In what world does Silky win that mini challenge? And Vanjie's delivery was terrible. That spat with Yvie clearly threw her off her game.

by Anonymousreply 341Last Tuesday at 9:44 AM

Snatch Game has become so much about the reactions of the fools "in character" so they think - and the stupid stunts in between questions....and LESS about working on a character and giving funny answers to the questions.....it's a long tedious walk off a short pier.

It's like watching a bunch of untalented and unaware improv artists.....

by Anonymousreply 342Last Tuesday at 10:39 AM

Would anyone on this season impersonate Mae West or Carol Channing or Maggie Smith for Snatch Game? Or will it be a bunch of Cardi Bs and Nikki Minajs?

r344 I remember how I screamed when she announced she was doing Little Edie. I also remember most of the queens tragically having no clue who that was.

by Anonymousreply 346Last Tuesday at 11:15 AM

I loved Little Edie.

Snatch Game is usually one of my favorite episodes, even if half of them fuck it up. I think it's one of the more important challenges to get right because just being a looks-queen or a dancing queen is not what connects you to people. The humor and camp that comes out in the Snatch is really a huge factor for me in terms of what queens I really like - aside from their true personalities revealed in untucked or just in the work room.

Here's the Snatch Game yearbook.

by Anonymousreply 348Last Tuesday at 12:04 PM

I'm really curious who each queen is going to play, but I don't want to look at spoilers.

Yvie has become so toxic. Will she lose this season because of it? Even Reddit is starting to turn off of her. Tyra won her season with a rotten attitude. But it's a different time and a different fanbase. She's someone who would actually benefit from All Stars. Watching herself on camera, and gaining some humility, might make her grow up a little and have a Roxxy-esque redemption. She'd probably win in that instance.

by Anonymousreply 349Last Tuesday at 2:02 PM

Tyra was already on All Stars, r349.. She kept calling Ru "Mother" while she was there.

by Anonymousreply 350Last Tuesday at 3:35 PM

Tyra has never been on All Stars. She made a few appearances over the years, notably when all the previous winner returned. She'll not likely EVER be back after threatening to blow up DragCon!!

by Anonymousreply 351Last Tuesday at 4:30 PM

On AS4, Gia Gunn impersonated some no-name manicurist so I don’t have much confidence that I’ll know the real-life inspirations of the people that Yvie and Vangie and Silky impersonate. Probably Instagram influencers or whatever.

by Anonymousreply 352Last Tuesday at 4:39 PM

I think Yvie is more knowledgeable than that. Vanjie and Plastique might be the ones to pull that shit, however.

What ever happened to Robbie Turner? Remember when she told that ridiculous story about being in a fake uber accident (which killed the driver, allegedly)?

Has she been seen or heard from since??

by Anonymousreply 356Last Tuesday at 9:22 PM

So, are any of the O'Hara queens from the same house?

by Anonymousreply 357Last Tuesday at 10:01 PM

Comparing Yvie to Tyra stings for me as a Denver resident who's still rooting for the local queen. Wasn't Tyra working at an Amazon fulfillment center recently? I want better for Yvie. I have a couple of acquaintances who knew Yvie in college and rave about her talents. She's apparently quite a good painter and costume designer.

by Anonymousreply 358Last Tuesday at 11:01 PM

Robbie Turner has not been seen in drag since then. He has apparently become an uber driver. Some Seattle residents have reportedly been driven around by him.

by Anonymousreply 359Last Tuesday at 11:11 PM

Robbie retired after surviving the bombing at dragcon.

by Anonymousreply 360Last Wednesday at 4:41 AM

R355, she has huge appeal among the frau segment of the fanbase. Maybe it's because of the Barbie doll-esque drag name.

by Anonymousreply 361Last Wednesday at 6:38 AM

Robbie Turner was a strange one who had a huge problem with pathological lying, and not just about the Uber "accident."

by Anonymousreply 362Last Wednesday at 6:47 AM

We were making fun of Mercedes' exit statement, which OP then used as thread title, but how prescient was that? Look at what's happening to Ilhan Omar now, with deplorables saying she burned down the Notre Dame cathedral herself after she offered her condolences. Pig-ignorant people are scary.

r355 It's her signature look but yes, I will also never understand the appeal of that makeup style.

by Anonymousreply 363Last Wednesday at 6:47 AM

I like how this week's mini challenge was a condensed version of the book design and Absolut interview main challenge from Season 2.

Remember how everyone chose Tatianna's book to be in the 99-cent bin? I think that 'honor' would have gone to Miss Vanjie this time.

I loved Tyra's bomb threat. And you know all the drama-loving Twitter and Reddit idiots did too. It gave them a reason to post things like "I'm so scared, y'all!!!!" and to try to outdo each other with histrionics.

r372 Awful. First time I'm hearing of this person.

R372 is that a spoiler? What a scumbag thing to post on here.

If that is true then you’re an asshole for trying to ruin it for everyone. What a loser thing to do.

by Anonymousreply 37420 hours ago

Oh look how cool r372 is for knowing all the inside gossip. So connected and informed.

Any trash bag fool can get that off of reddit but to post it here is so low and scummy. Nobody is impressed.

by Anonymousreply 37520 hours ago

To clarify, this is NOT a spoiler thread. We used to have a separate spoiler thread every season but I don't think we have one this time around?

by Anonymousreply 37620 hours ago

Hey, at least R372 didn't say which queen it was.

by Anonymousreply 37720 hours ago

Small mercies!

by Anonymousreply 37820 hours ago

The “spoiler” was posted on Instagram by World of Wonder. The clip that they posted identifies the queen. So fuck off for accusing me of sharing something that is available to millions on social media.

And I’m STILL not going to spoil by identifying the queen!! Fuckers.

by Anonymousreply 37920 hours ago

r379 Thanks for the clarification. I think the majority of those posting here would like to remain completely unspoiled. I could be totally off in that assessment, though.

It used to be really bad around here, with people posting the elimination order unprompted and without warning, which is why people might be more wary of posts like yours.

My prediction is Yvie will flop on snatch game and get a taste of her own medicine by being in the bottom, after constantly yelling at others for doing so.

by Anonymousreply 38218 hours ago

I hate when they pick dull people like Celine Dion. Brooklyn already knew he wasn't going to be good at the challenge - so now he's stacking the deck against himself.

by Anonymousreply 38314 hours ago

This Snatch Game is a tragedy. Truly hard to watch.

by Anonymousreply 38413 hours ago

That was pretty bad. Am I supposed to know who TS Madison is? Or the nail lady?

The Whoopi attempt was awful.

Tony Hale?

by Anonymousreply 38613 hours ago

So Smelly Gash won for basically being herself?

by Anonymousreply 38712 hours ago

I thought the bottom two would be Vanjie and Yvie... Brooklyn surprised me. Her Celine was bad but the outfit shouldv e made up for it. Vanjie sucked and just wore another corset.

by Anonymousreply 38812 hours ago

Wrong bottom 2. Period.

by Anonymousreply 38912 hours ago

The guest judges and Ross really fought for Vanjie.

There are never more than few queens who do well in Snatch Game and there are always some car crashes. Man, it seemed like Yvie didnt know the first thing about Whoopi. Really don't get where those choices came from.

That lip sync is going down in the books though, kinda chaotic but so much fun to watch.

by Anonymousreply 39012 hours ago

Ru chose Brook Lynne and Yvie knowing they would both slay and she could keep them both. She knew Vangie would lose to either so she couldn’t keep her another week. Vangie should have been bottom but not this time. And the back of Silky’s dress was bad. Why don’t they read her for the same runway each week? And as far as I could tell she played herself on Snatch Game.

by Anonymousreply 39112 hours ago

Silky needs to be in a clinic to lose weight and then get excess skin cut off.

by Anonymousreply 39212 hours ago

LOVED Nina's Jo Anne Worley and wish she had won. I wish Ru would ban YouTubers from Snatch Game.

Shuga surprised me in a good way with her runway—that gown was gorgeous.

Great LSFYL, although I thought Yvie had the edge.

by Anonymousreply 39312 hours ago

[quote]Vanjie sucked and just wore another corset.

I love Vanjie, but if she does another swimsuit/leotard look, she deserves to go straight home, fuck the lip sync.

by Anonymousreply 39412 hours ago

That was the greatest lip sync of all time.

by Anonymousreply 39512 hours ago

The lip sync was amazing. Those two are right up top for me, so relived they both killed it. Silky did do a good job. There were a few character choices I didn't know. I saw the Dr. Phil girl Vanjie played for a minute but she slipped into Vanjie real quick. And Michelle is not happy with Vanjie's looks. Vanjie got lucky.

by Anonymousreply 39612 hours ago

If you pick someone no one has ever heard of, you should be in the bottom.

by Anonymousreply 39711 hours ago

Kind of reminds me of Season 4 when Ru made Sharon and Phi Phi go through the agony of a lip sync when she had no intention of sending either of them home, and was going to disqualify Willam regardless.

Getting kind of tired of Vanjie being protected.

by Anonymousreply 39811 hours ago

I love Vanjie but..if she does not step up her wardrobe...she needs to go. Slinky Garbage is coasting along on her obnoxious personality..which surprisingly is all she seems to need for the win. I find her tedious and her wardrobe looks straight out of Party City. I am not a fannnnnn.

by Anonymousreply 3999 hours ago

R393, Shuga revealed earlier this season she retired from a six figure corporate job to become a queen. She’s clearly able to buy the best of the best drag clothes.

Compliment the designer, not her.

by Anonymousreply 4009 hours ago

Nina should have won tonight. We all know it.

by Anonymousreply 4019 hours ago

Given that it’s already Snatch Game, adding in Brooke’s reveal and that insane lip sync, I think this will go down as an iconic episode.

BTW, I didn’t buy Yvie’s apologies for a second. Because you know if she did well, she would’ve come in ranting and raving to Brooke and Vanjie about how they needed to step their pussies up. Glad the bitch was knocked down a few pegs. Hopefully next time she’s in the top, she’ll remember this lesson. But I’m not too optimistic.

r397 absolutely. Who the fuck cares about that madison social media thing?

by Anonymousreply 4059 hours ago

R401, no she didn’t. Her Harvey was about average at best, and Joanne Worley was unnecessary and boringly conceived.

by Anonymousreply 4069 hours ago

Nina is as basic as it gets. Jo Anne fucking Worley? I had to google her and still don't know who it is. Most of the audience is not 70 ya know. At least fans have seen Charo on the show before. Silky deserved the win, you've got to sell it and she did. Bitch is funny and annoying and basic too. The lip synch redeemed the episode. Suga makes us laugh, he's so delusional. I'm beginning to think the black queens are right. Why are the loud black girls always so hated on this show by so much of the fanbase?

Is this video from you R404?

by Anonymousreply 4079 hours ago

I know Shuga has money for good drag, but she hasn't brought it on the runway until tonight. Her previous looks have been basic to busted.

by Anonymousreply 4089 hours ago

r407, we get it! You hate Nina! Enough, hon. Sheeeeeesh!

by Anonymousreply 4099 hours ago

It isn’t but I did see that video an hour ago and I cackled.

But he has a point. Don’t act like a miserable asshole and then cry victim when you get called out on it.

Every week there’s a scolding post from the queens to not send hate on social media. Passionate but critical fans get it. But there are psychos do that shit. This generalization of the fan base as monsterous hate mongers is cringey and so fucking played out.
