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.

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.

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.

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.

Scarlet was right when she said that Yvie says the right thing at the wrong time.

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.

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.

You seem to lack any sense of history, in the post Drag Race world people forget what it was like to be a queen before this TV show existed.

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.

It would be far too expensive and time consuming for the queens to record themselves singing the Rusical numbers. Cheaper—and funnier—to have them lip sync.

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.

Nipples are censored whenever they are "female-presenting". Yes, it's insane, but it's a cultural thing so rail against the squeamish, overly-religious culture that enables this self-censorship in the first place.

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".

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's a long tedious walk off a short pier.

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.

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.

For those of you who love Nina, come to Columbus Pride where she does the announcing for Bat N Rouge, the Drag Queen Softball Game. The proceeds go to charity and it is a riot! She is really funny and as friendly as she appears on the show.

Whew! Glad neither Yvie nor Brooklyn went home. I like them both.

Silky is a low class person. Every other word out of her mouth is a cuss word. Didn’t know who he did on Snatch Game either.

I’m getting tired of Vanjie and her outfits. Didn’t know her character either.

by Anonymousreply 46404/19/2019

Silky picked a character she understood, could execute well, and she successfully improved in the scenario. And most importantly she was funny. She definitely deserved this win, its silly to deny her.

And I am far from a Silky fan, but she was the best choice of winner of an underwhelming snatch game.

Also if you think she is the least deserving, watch Season 3 snatch game again.

Silky is not going to win the crown, but she has won the season because she gets a reaction out of your dizzy bitches. It's like some of you are newbies to reality TV every season. Bold personalities get pushed through because they get reactions. It engages the audience. Someone had a meltdown because Silky said she is America's favorite. This was filmed 2 years ago. Calm your pussies down. SIlky is going to make it to top 5 or 6 and then will go away until the next all stars. Same for Vanjie.

Make no mistake, this season the crown is going Yvie. There is no one else on this season that is anywhere near her level.

It's not that hard to connect posts, dear. The black queen with 3 nose jobs who goes on 3 paragraph diatribes on every thread about plastic surgery is not hard to miss... not to mention, the constant comments about some person who had a "failed penis enlargement" which seems to be a rather bizarre obsession to have. And then the religious babbling starts (see pic below). You've been mentioned on a number of the "DL troll" threads, but apparently you only care about plastic surgery and drag race so you haven't noticed other people commenting about you.

Needs to be repeated over and over - Drag Race is one of, if not THE most, scripted and edited "reality" competition shows on television. As mentioned above, Silky will most likely not win, but the producers know what makes good television and will keep her around for as long as possible so people will tune in, in only to gripe about her.

by Anonymousreply 47504/20/2019

Is it really more scripted and edited than the Housewives, with their detailed filming schedules and drama that gets beaten to death all season. It seems a little more "free" - but I'm not an expert.

It's a bit different if you have producers choosing the winners and editors showing their "good" clips and their sad backstories (Project Runway & many competition shows - not that bad) vs. literally setting up scenes and stoking drama like Housewives, among women who aren't even really friends... which is worse IMO.

by Anonymousreply 47604/20/2019

The reaction to Silky has been so strange. After her Meet the Queens videos, Reddit lost their mind, decided she was the be all end all, and that if she didn’t win this season, she would CERTAINLY win AS5.

It wasn’t until the end of the first episode that everyone HATED her. Fickle fickle. I don’t mind her and I like her more since Yvie started bullying her.

I usually hate stuff like this, but yes, there’s something about the fact that the fandom won’t allow you to make the slightest criticism of any queens. But when it comes to the fat ones like Eureka or Silky, there’s a fair game policy of being as nasty as possible to them.

Yvi is like Sharon Needles and Phi Phi has a baby. Talent and great designs meets a toxic and repugnant personality.

by Anonymousreply 47704/20/2019

Oh, get out with that fat shit. I don't mind her weight at all and went crazy for her after her interview. I'm still a fan of Eureka and always have been.

But bitch ruined it for herself by shouting and hogging the camera in the very first episode. I hate domineering people like that. And now there's another layer with the nastiness, kicking Yvie when she's in the bottom. Vile, ungracious person.

Silky could at least have made the effort to dress more like TS. The dress was Silky's own frump style. Neither wig was right either.

Silky made it funny. Ru always stresses that. Silky made it happen. Even Vangie was funny a few times. Ridiculous and not far away from her normal personality (like Silky) but still funny. Let's be honest, no one did an amazing impression so it then just came down to humor. Yvie I find to be a bit too wanna-be 'deep' and after that Whoopie, void of any funny bone.

I'm trying not to analyze this silly show to death. Silky did a good job. She was funny. It worked. She got a few of TJ's phrases in and the wig change and the drink with the straw. Still though, TJ is not much of a transformation for Silky. Also, TJ is not a YouTube star and Vine is dead. You'd have to be a big RuPaul fan hanging out on World of Wonder to know who she is.

5) She says almost everything on her mind, but not everything.

6) There is no other remaining queen that is anywhere close to her.

Silky is around because she gets a reaction from the audience which equals ratings. But she doesn't have that certain something needed to be a winner. I like Nina, but Nina seems to be holding back. I love Vanjie, but she is a one trick pony. Plastique, her name says it all. Akeeria has the Nina West problem.

Finally watched the Snatch Game episode OnDemand. Not sure how/why Silky won as it basically seemed as if she was being herself, only amped up a lot more. (Also, as mentioned somewhere else, for being sooooo religious on a earlier episode, Silky sure loves using the phrase "God damn" a lot. She also doesn't as much throw shade as she is rude and insulting.) If anyone deserved the win, it was Nina who was praised during the critiques. No one else was really that great or memorable with everyone else being average or poor, with Yvie and Brooke definitely being in the latter. It seemed somewhat obvious that Ru wasn't about to send either of the two home, given their track records and also their reveals on the main stage.

On this week's viewing party at Roscoe's vid, Silky expressed disappointment at herself that she didn't accept Yvie's apology. She also gave background to her self aggrandising - coming from a small town, where she had fight against negative feedback over being queer, even/especiallyfrom family.

Yet... minutes later, Silky was back to her "I said what I said" pose.

I will say this: I couldn't help but notice how the white queens yakked and yakked this week. Even Silky hardly got a word in, comparitively. I know, I know, that may be considered small mercy but... as a viewer, it felt like Silky's win was brushed aside for a love fest between Nina and Brooke. Brief congratulations to Silky were done as lip service, in between giving Nina her apparent due as Saint of Ohio.

Brooke and Nina, especially Brooke, had had a few drinks, but TRex sort of let it happen... Silky was a pain at the previous viewing party but she wasn't at all drunk this time. TRex could have done better as a host.

She also made a crack toward Brooke, who after saying something like she had no talent for acting, responded with "You have talent?" or similar.

Sharon couldn't wait to become more glamorous. Nose job, plumped lips, facial fillers and new teeth. The meth diet. Sharon sold off her look as soon as she could afford the upgrade. To this day she can't make her mark above or below DR ground. He's not as intelligent as some think. Sharon's depth and talent were extremely overestimated. But she turned on some cheap glam near the end of the competition and didn't have much personality competition from Chad or Phi Phi for the win.

BTW, Willam and Alaska love Silky. Yes partially because of the mess she is, but mostly because the bitch is funny. Stop saying she's only being herself. Herself is talented and funny. Natasha Lyonne called her the best actress in the group. In last weeks Race Chaser recap when it came time to discuss Shuga, Willam said, "he's a nice man" and then just stopped! Ha. pointed.

Akeria is in this thing, a potential winner. He's a funny looking guy but it translates so well to female. He looks like Beyonce every time he does quick drag. Brooklyn is very much a factor too. He's relying too much on that B O D Y though. So far I don't think BHytes will win. Yvie is not great in the challenges and her runways are messy but high concept. She needs to glam it up another time. That's not my opinion, that's just how you win. I still don't know how Bob won in a pair of tights, a sequence jacket, one ratty wig and a lipstick. Vanjie, Nina and Shuga. Eliminate them if whatever order you want, but they're obviously going. The AV reviews mention that Ru doesn't take to Nina and Shuga has never even been praised much, when she should have won Snatch Game. The reading challenge was painful.

Stinky Garbage should have been sent home for that Party City Roach costume alone. You remember the one. The one Stinky thought was a fly.

Cooter slam!

Akeria has really grown on me this season. I like Brooke Lynn, but she's getting boring. I want to like Shuga Cain, but she's just not bringing "it." I know some of y'all really despise Silky, but I don't care one way or the other about her.

I can't put my finger on why, but oddly enough, I'm enjoying this season more than season 10 and 9. It's not an amazing season, but it's less abrasive to me than the previous two seasons.

Party City wins, loses, or neutral with all this Drag Race free publicity?

I am HORRIFIED and FASCINATED when I drop in for an anthropological field trip every few years. I guess that's my attitude when I watch Drag Race, as well.

There’s a rumor going around that after season 12, they’re gonna try to take a break from regular seasons and focus on international formats, which I think is smart. The talent pool is getting smaller. This cast turned out better than I thought, but season 8 and 10 had two of the worst casts in history.

by Anonymousreply 56904/26/2019

They can always do All Stars, and even a Super All Stars when they bring back all the millionaire queens to hash it out in an epic battle for the ages.

by Anonymousreply 57004/26/2019

All Stars: Legends Edition featuring queens like Jackie Beat and Coco Peru is something that excites a lot of fans and the queens themselves are game for it. But because of network demos, they say it’s unlikely to do a show with such a “seasoned” cast.

An all winners edition is another one that has been rumored. Producers say it’s a scheduling nightmare but you don’t have to have every winner from every season. There’s about sixteen overall winners that can compete and each All Stars season has only ten contestants.

Silky is funny. And I agree with R555, she is good TV. The runway is going to catch up with her though.

by Anonymousreply 57204/26/2019

Akeria is very good but I think she might by the Kennedy of this season.

by Anonymousreply 57304/26/2019

r569 That's actually amazing news! A couple of international iterations is exactly what we need to freshen things up at this point.

by Anonymousreply 57404/26/2019

Silky isn't funny or talented enough to represent the Drag Race brand. She also isn't very well-spoken. Silky isn't going to win because she isn't talented enough to win. Brooke Lynn Hytes at least has a concrete talent to market: dancing, She is also polished enough to represent the Drag Race brand and starred in two of the most memorable runways of the season.

P.S. I used to be a Silky supporter until I woke up and realized how mediocre and obnoxious she truly is.

r575, IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT !!!!!!!!!!

by Anonymousreply 57604/26/2019

Stanky must think she has this in the bag and is starting to coast. Her regular drag is pretty beat, but whatever she tossed on last night was just lazy. Glad Michelle called her out on it. And yeah, I don't see why Plastique can't use an Asian accent when the black queens can be as ghetto as they want.

I think it's funny that Michelle will call out Asian Plastique for playing an Asian stereotype, but won't call out not-black Shuga for talking like a black female stereotype.

by Anonymousreply 57904/26/2019

^ Exactly R579. Shuga is embarrassing.

by Anonymousreply 58004/26/2019

^ R579 Can you remind us when this Shuga talking like a black female stereotype happened? I don't recall.

by Anonymousreply 58104/26/2019

Sure, R581. If you wanna look back, it's in every confessional of hers and whenever she interacts in the workroom.

The Pit Stop S11 Episode 9: Bianca Del Rio

by Anonymousreply 58404/26/2019

Too bad that Brooke Lynn is so lily white, she doesn’t have a chance in hell of getting beyond second place.

Congratulations to Yvie Oddey, your newest Drag Race winner!

by Anonymousreply 58504/26/2019

Yvie sucked in this challenge. And it wasn't just A'keria overshadowing her either; she sucked all on her own. Just completely lifeless. What happened?

by Anonymousreply 58604/26/2019

I'm glad that Bianca called out Yvie for going on and on about her illness every episode. Yvie is playing the nobility game at this point. The kids still like her, but her game is transparent. Turns out her talent is not so great and her drag isn't either. She has great legs though. Creepy laugh.

by Anonymousreply 58704/26/2019

Shuga can speak however the hell he wants. And I don't even care that much for him. Yes, it's annoying but he has every right to talk how he wants. I guess we should be offended A'keria had a blond 'Hillary Clinton' wig on? No?

Silky reminds me of Shirley Hemphill

There's more inside info at Roscoe's Viewing Party than 6 months of Reddit. Even dumb Derrick Berry has something to contribute, but Willam tells everything. How Brook Lynn was made to do Celine in Snatch Game so she would fail and be put in the bottom, just how the show is pieced together, and how nasty a piece of work Mimi Imfurst is in real life.... A'keria is looking very fishy, like a top two contestant I'd bet. She makes all her own drag and much of what we've seen she made in the workroom on the day of the runway. Because she was poor. The show was shot a year ago and they're all friends now. Her body was NOT padded in this weeks body suit? and she made that gold headdress and zebra sequined number too. Talented. I notice she headlined with Trinity Taylor some shows in Toronto last weekend. I wonder if she won the crown. Willam gives the best explanation of how a reality show (Drag Race) is put together that I have heard. And don't believe RuPaul. Ha.

The part that made me truly gag when I watched it. That guy could have just about anyone he wanted and he went for these two bozos? A mountain of daddy issues, I think.

God I love Willam. His dirt on Mimi Imfurst at Roscoe's was delicious. And I'm so glad Derrick told the story of being Willam's understudy in the musical and that from the get go Willam told everyone he planned on being disqualified. One of the musicals producers was in the wet t shirt mini challenge audience and told Willam he should stay because he was doing so well and Willam was like nah, I'm coming to New York.

RaceChaser podcast is great with him and Alaska.

I want silky to win purely to see the collective meltdown of the entire fandom.

Why would the producers want Brook too fail?

by Anonymousreply 59504/27/2019

That precious joke was stolen from Mimi Imfurst. She did it a few years ago in a roast of Michelle Visage on a cruise. Mimi used it on Latrice."Ladies and gentlemen, Latric Royale is here, isn't she precious? No...I mean Isn't she precious??"

[quote]Why would the producers want Brook too fail?

So she would have to lip synch, show off her incredible skills and Ru would get to SAVE her? Also it's good for the narrative for a frontrunner fall to the edge of extinction. Same reason why some others are NEVER put in the bottom, because they couldn't plausibly win a LSFYL - but the show wants to keep them around.
