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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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 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 gave $35.00 to Mimi's Go Fund Me for her music / cd a few years ago. I never received anything. In fact many didn't receive anything. I posted along with many others on FB of being duped and Mini gave excuses and then said email her. I did and so did others. Mimi never replied. It's only $35.00 but I did feel bad for those who gave hundreds of dollars. She's a fraud.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'be noticed that if a current season queen is hosting an episode at Roscoe's, chances are that is the queen that got eliminated for that week. I was at Ariel's episode and everyone visibly gasped when she fell in the lipsync. She was not happy reliving her elimination. Scarlett was at last week's screening.

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.

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 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.

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".

The whole Yvie thing was explained by Vangie in the argument. Vangie basically said she didn't mind the criticism, but the fact that Yvie did it on camera. I agree with Vangie.

What I like about Yvie is that she doesn't have time for foolishness or excuses. Every time a queen is eliminated they all the say the same thing, I wish they could have seen the real me. Well, why didn't you bring the real you? You need to bring it in every challenge. You need to work through pain and push your own boundaries to succeed. That's her entire point, stop making excuses. Do the work and bring your best. I see nothing wrong with what Yvie is saying.
I'm the oddball on here because I like Silky and she makes me laugh. Everyone knows a Silky and everyone knows that the reason why people like Silky are the way they are is because they are terrified of something and they use a larger than life personality to cover up the demons.

Shuga seems like a successful dude who always wanted to appear on reality TV to perform his conception of a sassy black chick. So he purchased some drag and got a spray tan. Hired a drag trainer. His accented confessionals are perfectly bizarre. That's not a real person - even for reality TV !!
He mistakenly believed "snatched wigs" meant recently hatched and never combed.

Too much perfection can take away from the fun of a drag queen. Too much can be too much. Like diamonds and furs were meant for old broads who've lost their shape - here's your perfect breast contour. The ancient queen delivers overdressed realness. Not much more. In Vogue.

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.

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.

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.
