"pig in a wig" was said about?

by Anonymousreply 506/01/2020

Some background from the Nancy Drews at r/rupaulsdragrace:

Nebraska Thunderfuck, one of Derrick's two boyfriends and Alaska's makeover project in S5, went from ex-Marine to working drag queen and hit it semi-big in Las Vegas. A while back Nebraska beat out India Ferrah for a hosting gig at a gay club called Piranha. India, bitter cunt that she is, got pissed and ranted on FB about Nebraska, claiming she talked shit about the club and embezzled money from another club. Then they did some back-and-forth reading during which India called Nebraska a pig in a wig.

Fuck that photo of Mariah at R13 is fierce. She's ready to star in a remake of Dynasty or be the bitch diva of some opera. She doesn't really look like that, especially not now. But I remember when I first saw her walk into the workroom on season 3 - I thought that's the prettiest man I've ever seen. She was wearing a RED dress and the hair was layed back and straight and she had on some ankle straps and legs and high water ass in that simple knit dress. She wasn't contoured for the back row. Just a really pretty man. Perfect skin and smile. I wanted to fuck him/her. Mariah is old school funny too. Talk about not knowing your words? Ha. She'll never excel in acting or dancing but I still might date him. Hey Elijah.

I was hoping I'd never have to see YOU again.

India Ferra??? She was so proud of her $600 dollar titty bib. And Raja and Raven praise her all the time. I guess she's well liked in the clubs. But a terrible dumb contestant with zero skills aside from over accessorized dressing up. I don't like the pig faced queens: India, Morgan and Delta.

But I love Mariah and Jujubee and the somewhat robotic but wonderfully talented Shea Coulee. Miz Cracker has a zing, but a rickety deformed frame for the runway. I know she was poor growing up, but she looks deprived of essential nutriets. What this season of All Stars really NEEDED was Peppermint. She's a human treasure. A great person and entertainer. Those excited about Ongina's return are about to be disappointed. She's not much really. Kinda fake and newly fat.

If you loved season 12 of Drag Race, watch it again. Instead of All Stars 25. This is canned fuckery. They all were bad to terrible and they look even worse. I won't watch this. The All Star Seasons are complete nonsense. Jujubee was aleady crowned the seaon winner tonight when they allowed her to lip synch in the "talent" competition. The rest is all canned and they're all fat and wear bad showgirl shit. Go watch Jaida and Heidi and Gigi and Jackie and Crystal again. Season 12 was, as many of us said, stellar. Possibly the best ever.

I ain't watching this fuckery. Jujubee wins. Shea comes in second.

Alright now Wow. Jinkx gets the best line, no doubt she insisted to say exactly that. But welcome back to The Vixen, who was done so wrong by the powers that be at Drag Race. Everything she stood for and was criticized for, is what we all accept as necessary truth today. I hope this signifies some chance for Tony to come back to the Drag Race family.

I’m gonna be honest: I actually really liked Derrick’s performance. His Madonna genuinely made me laugh. If it had better written jokes and a more substantial narrative, I think he would have definitely been safe.

It’s also a shame that we’re missing out on another episode of Derrick and India’s feud, which seems genuine and truly hateful, for another episode of Mayhem. I love her “Drama” video and I like that she recreated the look and started off parodying it. If she had a taken breaks in the rap to do more bloop eyeography, it would’ve worked much better. Instead, it was stale. She should’ve gone home. I don’t have high expectations for her run on the show.

by Anonymousreply 4306/06/2020

I detested Derrick on his season and I’m surprised and relieved he got das boot so early on. I hope he’s wrong about coming back...

Regarding all the complaints about the show being ‘canned’ or pre-determined, etc.: just accept it and watch or don’t watch. I hardly care about the competition aspect of the show. Aside from the prize, which is a lot of money, it doesn’t matter. Just like with American Idol, America’s Next Top Model and every other competition show, being on the show launches some people to career success whether or not they won. In most cases, non-winners make the biggest splash.

If you just watch for entertainment and accept that the competition is just the narrative arc that moves the episodes along without being invested in who is named the winner, it’s a fun show worth watching.

You don’t get anything out of any TV series unless it’s educational. It’s all a big waste of time. If you believe it somehow is not a waste of your time if your favorite wins, then please scan and upload a picture of your Trump University diploma. I’d like to see it.

I agree r48. I'm always conflicted watching Yvie perform, she is amazing to watch, but her body can move like that due to a genetic condition and it is not healthy and going to get worse even faster with how she treats it.

And count me surprised that India Ferrah won a challenge, definitely see her as complete filler. But honestly, I don't see it happening again.

Also the 10k just goes back in the pot for next week? Why can't the lip sync assasins get paid.

by Anonymousreply 5106/06/2020

So the Lip-synch Assassins are not there to be just props. Whatever you think of Yvie, she brought it to that performance. And yeah, not getting why the assassins can't get paid, or at least donate the $10,000 to charity.

I don't care about Derrick and India's feud. Are there any 2 less interesting queens on the planet?

And what am I missing about Mayhem? She blathers on and on like she has all these amazing performance skills that for "reason" she just didn't bring to the table last time. And guess what? She flubbed again. Mayhem Filler indeed.

I wish Derrick would have stuck around a bit longer, I think he was sent packing too prematurely. From last night's episode, Ongina was more of a weaker link, but he's got the nostalgia factor working in his favor. India Ferrah's drag is really unappealing. I don't know if it's the overdrawn make-up or the garish rubber titties that she always wears on display, but she just ends up looking like Vicki Gunvalson in bad Mariah Carey drag.

Derrick is the kind of manufactured-drama reality show character who puts me off to reality shows.

I remember that on his season, the show extended one episode for 30 minutes simply to show Derrick having a temper tantrum for that length of time. I’ll always resent him for that. I don’t understand why people enjoy watching brats and bitches pout.

R52 I don't think you're missing anything about Mayhem Miller. There's likely a reason why she was cast so much later than the rest of her WEHO cohort (Raven, Morgan, Detox, etc.). She's a competent performer, but she doesn't have the "it" factor.

R67 Blair isn't helped by the fact that S12 just aired. If I didn't know any better, I'd think she was Gigi Goode-lite. "Blair St. Clair is all grown up now -- bitches!" So... edgy?

I sincerely hope that Mariah Balenciaga and Alexis Mateo stick around for the majority of the season. Their confessionals are the best. I loved Alexis predicting that Blair St. Clair will crack under the pressure. That's the old school Drag Race bitchery we need. I don't think Mariah Balenciaga (and ballroom queens, in general) really suit the Drag Race competition, but she's a great queen.

They need to do that to make the performances look better than they really were, and to create the impression that the right queen won.

Though it did appear that Yvie destroyed India. I wondered for a moment if that was strategy on India's part, but I doubt she's smart enough to come up with any strategy.

by Anonymousreply 7806/06/2020

I was impressed by India's knee slide though. It does look like she does it often though- in the promos, they show her doing it alone.

by Anonymousreply 7906/06/2020

I also feel kind of freaked out when Yvie contorts because it seems like it has to be bad for her. But it’s her choice to do that with her body, and she even built it into her drag identity. She’s a “freak.” Her ability to walk over backward from the ground is incredible, and she turned her rare disease into a unique talent. I choose to be impressed by her instead of worrying for her. You live once, and she’s living it up.

by Anonymousreply 8006/06/2020

I would have liked them to not eliminate anyone the first episode so that we can see more of the queens. I'm not sure I like the lip sync assassin thing. Feels like the show is becoming more and more about lip syncing than performance, and by doing so alienates other versions of drag.

I thought India was going to be underwhelming but she knows how to deliver a performance. I don't mind her rubber looking tits after seeing so many dodgy ones since on the show. Whatsherface that won season 12 recently had a shoddy set and she still managed to do well.

Alexis should've won her performance was the most entertaining, and way too open a show, Didn't care for Shea's stripper pole roboticness, the close-up to her face for some reason I found unsettling. I was wondering why they felt the need to insert a BLM message at the beginning of the program, it seemed strangely placed but I guess Mariah's monotone performance explains why it was there.

Whatsherface? There was nothing shoddy about Jaida Essence Hall. She was pure class. She's beloved by every reviewer and most all fans. She was funny with just enough bitchy and loving and a great dancer and good improviser and the most flawless queen on the runway. And none of it was an act. She's an experienced queen with a sweet heart, stable life and fun sense of humor about herself. You won't find one top level Ru girl who didn't want Jaida to win. Look back on twitter posts for the last 2 months. There was nothing "shoddy" about Jaida. Her pageant excellence PLUS all her other surprises were overwhelming talents. Your white robe is showing R86. Shut the fuck up about Mariah too. Jaida's titty bib was right for her hand made, self made, all created by herself gorgeous DRAG. Take a seat. Whatsherface?

Trixie will eclipse Bianca if she hasn't already, Bianca / Roy has stayed pretty tried and true to who she is. She hosts gigs and does her comedy shows. I think he likes his life as it is, he does his thing, doesn't care if he offends people, and speaks his mind on social media. He is mid 40s, has a successful career, has made millions, and is content doing what he does. Trixie / Bryan is taking a completely different approach. He is performing and doing shows, releasing music, has a Netflix show on Youtube, and a WoW online show with Katya, has a make up line, is doing tons of collabs with influencers (James Charles etc), put out music albums, is all over social media and branching out (does live Twitch shows weekly) and is generally spending a ton of energy on self promotion. And he is only 30.

90% of Trixie's success is underserved IMO. It's a fluke, a weird sign of the times, a sad abomination worse than a shoddy titty bib. Still, I grant her 9% more deserved success than Katya.

R101, I’m a big Trixie fan but I think she should narrow her focus a little more. The makeup line is smart because she worked as a retail makeup artist for years and knows how to sell it. It’s also smart in regards to her young female fanbase.

I personally think her best strength is her comedy. But that singing career...gurl. She did a poll on her Twitter a few weeks back asking people what they wanted to see more of on her YouTube channel. She gots thousands and thousands of responses. The vast majority wanted to see more comedy.

The selection for “Music” barely cracked five percent. I almost felt bad for her.

I want to love my OG Filipiñana Ongina but oh my. Thankfully the wondrous Mariah is back tho. S3 is still the best.

Juju is such a ringer. She’s quick on her feet and fantastic. Nothing more needs to be said.

Cracker is such a great narrator and just has a face to remember. I’m always hooked into her confessionals. Blair looked stunning in her performance. Mayhem bores but is so handsome and has such a good energy.

India winning... what an unexpected legend even if she stole it from my Boricua QUEEN. I’m old enough to remember when she quit drag. What a drama bomb. Hilarious she slayed Derrick. Derrick was an easy first boot but god I laughed so hard at her and bless her heart for actually trying something interesting.

And Yvie was fucking amazing. Love that the moneypot rolls over like the lotto. Bring it home Alexis! I hope the bars open back up so some of these old school bitches can make money.

BIG GIRL WALKING DOWN THE STURDY STREET

by Anonymousreply 12006/08/2020

I suspect that Ongina is basically another Latrice Royale...a queen who is beloved (and I love them both too), but it's mostly due to her persona and the hard luck story. And, in certain limited situations, they both can deliver a stellar performance...but overall, there just isn't much there. I remember seeing Ongina doing standup comedy on TV many years ago, and she was painfully unfunny...not unlike this week's reading challenge.

I'm not even a big fan of drag, outside of watching Drag Race, but I'm constantly amazed every season how the art form is evolving so rapidly. It's like they just keep coming up with new ways to wow us. I suspect that Ongina has pretty much just coasted on her Drag Race association all these years, and hasn't bothered to keep up. It's astonishing to me that such a seasoned veteran managed to turn in such a shoddy, unprepared performance. I hope I'm wrong about her, because I like her a lot.

I'm rooting for Miz Cracker, Alexis, and Jujubee.

R121, it’s funny you say that. I watched that same comedy special. The audience was so excited about seeing the breakout star of Drag Race, which was Ongina. I was so unimpressed with her performance, and along with the terrible cinematography of the first season, it took me a while to come around to Drag Race.

by Anonymousreply 12406/08/2020

I've posted this before, but back when Ongina still had her gorgeous slender boy androgyny going on, this was a great and favorite performance of hers. It's a bit on the nose but powerful nonetheless. It was his 11 o'clock number. In a bar. But Drag Race is not a bar. Ongina isn't much of an actor or dancer or wit. He looks old and chubby now. She still has style though. He's not going to go too far on All Stars. Loveable little bitch. They are low key editing the show. It's between Jujubee and Shea, all the way.

Shea's pole dancing routine was borderline uncomfortable; it certainly was tacky.

I used to pole dance regularly and nothing she did was beyond a beginner level. Her body wasn't graceful, she looked awkward.

Then when she pracrically humped the floor at the end? Was she trying to be sexy?

Drag Race is FUN and campy, that routine was off brand.

But Reddit acts like she’s the greatest competitor in the history of the show which she was, uh, not.

R137 Hustlers was also a big-budget feature film that probably paid for J Lo to get three months of pole dancing classes, spent two full days filming her pole dancing scenes, edited together the very best shots from two days of footage, and probably used a professional pole dancer body double for most of the impressive shots.

But OK, fair to compare to a single-take drag queen performance on a rickety $25 rental pole.

I’m glad Jujubee is there. I’d rather see her brought back often than see Shangela come in with her stupid Game of Thrones strategy.

I’ve said this before and I guess I am the only one who feels this way, but I watch Drag Race for the entertainment. It’s much better and has more lasting watchability than other competition shows because the competition is just a framework for all sorts of different talents, plus campy humor, plus occasional moving moments. I don’t care who wins. And the winners don’t seem to do better necessarily than other standout personalities. So I watch for entertainment generally. Airline is entertaining every moment he’s onscreen, and he also seems like a nice person. So if he’s brought back every other season, so be it. Better than Phi Phi or Acid Betty or Milk or some other asshole.

As opposed to India being the low-end villain who is easy to hate, Cracker is set up to be the villain of the season, but a competitive villain-lite who..... but you don't want spoilers, do you. Jujubee thus can get a free pass on her acidic tongue and play old-and-new-ultra and Shea can remain the putative....

Sorry, I won't go there. It's just obvious that everyone else is filler or on a platter for the moment and then set to be brushed aside. Cracker has paid her dues to WOW, and Jujubee is a nod to the queens from the past who remain current and have gotten even better. Shea is in the nouveau-BLM era and has improved the few rough edges she had. However, don't think that Ru & Company don't play the quota system, and with Monét, Ivy and Jaida sitting with their recent crowns, it just could be the moment for an Asian winner, finally (well, since Raja), and no one could fault Jujubee getting it.

IF she can outperform Shea, which is doubtful.

PS: The All-Stars 4 double win really was an acknowledgement that no one had "it" completely on her own, so they split it. It wasn't a "they're both so great we couldn't possibly let one not win without the other."

Ongina made me feel embarrassed. They never even wanted him on the first 19 seasons of All Stars. When she finally gets on, he's fronting some Warner Brothers plot and is completely talentless, old, short and fat. ONG spent a lot of money on those looks and had a backup look for every runway, according to the other queens. Then this little chubby asian man is C R Y I N G for two weeks that he has so much more to give? Yuk. It felt like months. They're right that Ongina has no neck or calves or anything that connects his tiny fat parts. So all that expensive and heavy fashion went nowhere. Someone will say he's a legend. No, he's not. Lots of people live with HIV. Life is a celebration!

Shea was THE drop dead gorgeous specimen of beauty and strength on the runway this week. Not quite as good in closeup. All these queens are looking busted and fat. Give them some cover and better lighting. Sheesh. Even Jujubee looks old and not pretty in the werkroom. There's something depressing about this season. I love Mariah, but she was SHIT in that girly group challenge. She couldn't write a verse or dance better than that??? Her gown of course was beautiful. And the boy is still pretty.

I still can't believe that some posters here didn't see the supreme all round excellence and gorgeousness in Jaida Essence Hall. That bitch is IT!! Drag Race hasn't had such a deserving, talented, gorgeous, irreverent and dearly beloved personality win in many years.

Shea is gonna get her crown for All Stars. She's by far the most talented AND innovative. Jujubee, like Shangela is cunty and cute - but not destined to ever win.

Every fucking season we have some mental midget posting spoilers in the running thread. Just zero consideration for others.

I think it was in one of the Season 12 threads where someone posted that Derrick would get eliminated first in All Stars. I still enjoyed last week's episode but knowing what was going to happen at the end didn't help.

In Season 9, someone posted about the circumstances of Valentina's elimination weeks before it happened. In All Stars 3, Ben's self-elimination was spoiled early in the season.

Miz Cracker is adorably neurotic. Based on this last episode, she appears to have zero self-awareness.

I went into this season wanting Shea to win, because she was robbed on her season. I hope she nails it.

I'm disappointed at the weeding-out of earlier-season queens that started with Ongina.

Cracker is repulsive. Overly prepared, lacking in spontaneity, on the spectrum, needily craven, mean-spirited and self-centered. This is the confidence she lost in her original season? Can't blame the edit, girl. And she can't win with the baggage she's setting up.

Ugh. Shea. A generic performer without a persona and with a very typical, if expensively crafted, "look." She's just another blah queen who believes she should win because she's that "total package." But she lacks the uniqueness and charisma almost all the winners have had. Well, Monet and Trinity lack those qualities, too. Monet is just entitled and Trinity is just a pageant queen with a pathetic appearance from abuse who has two comedic tricks to make her seem "multi-talented."

by Anonymousreply 24406/13/2020

They’ve been riding “Read U Wrote U” until the wheels fall off. I don’t mind the girl group challenge as long as it’s once a season, but yeah, the musical numbers are getting played out. Also choreographed dance is a skill that not everyone has. I understand you need to be decent at it to be in those Werk the World tours, but I think it puts some queens at a disadvantage when there’s ten of these every season. The same thing goes for having the first episode be a sewing challenge, which the show seems to have retired after they lost one of their biggest personalities (Vanjie) right away over it in S10.

Bianca Del Rio likely wouldn't win, or would at least end up in the bottom, in these seasons that focus too heavily on singing and dancing.

This challenge was TERRIBLE. Good god. Tina must have been in the room when the writers thought up this idea.

Chadwick Boseman was your first celebrity crush? Hannibal Lecter? Okay gurl. 🙄 And WHAT were some of these bitches wearing for the bedroom?! Alexis, come on girl.

That said Shea absolutely nailed everything with the ONLY fun verse (Alexis is 2nd) and that runway look was killer. One of the best on all the seasons. Perfecto. Blair looked fantastic in the shitty song but the runway look was dumb.

lol at India having to go up against Yvie and Shea having to go against goony Alyssa. Justice for India!

Alexis and Jujubee are still the best for TV. Cracker’s 3rd. Mariah is getting lost like in her original series. Shea was great on stage but is such a bore in her confessionals. It’s her destiny to be middling TV.

Ongina’s dumpy sparkly shorts and that fucking wig. Horrific. And then the CRYING. My husband and I pulled out our phones in sync when it started. What’s with these emotional wreck Filipina queens? I just got over Rock M. It’s so embarrassing. Waiting 11 years and then that happens. Eesh.

I think either Alexis BAM! Mateo or Blair should've won this challenge. Their lyrics were WAY funnier and entertaining.

R252, Mariah is funny in confessionals and in web shows, but she just dies during the competition. She would do better to lean into comedy chops.

Alexis is really winning me over in a way that she didn't do in season 3. I don't know what it is, maybe there's more of a relaxed/I'm-just-happy-to-be-here vibe?

by Anonymousreply 26406/15/2020

They famously had little food to eat in the early seasons. But a lot more booze. They had to send out from their rooms or walk down the corner to pick up some Taco Bell or potato chips. Alexis is happier this time due to abundant craft service. He is quite a likeable and sensible and joyful person. Been at it for a long time in the game in Miami. But thick or FAT, Alexis will always look like a man. She, more than any Drag Race contestant is the living definition of a pageant queen. She still lives that life. You don't have to be pretty, just pile on the drag. Those hair loaves - I hate them.

Alexis was so kind to Yara and friendly to Shangela. She saw the decency in Manila but was so wise and careful about Raja and Delta and Carmen in season 3 - what's not to like? He's a great guy. Smart. Visage HAS always been mean to her. She can't stand that presentation or body shape. (too close to home?)

Sorry for the long post, but Alexis was always likable. In the final challenge of Season 3 - the one portraying goddess statues and salsa dancing with a man - she was the very best. Manila should have won that year's crown. But Raja gave Ru all those bitchy tips on how to impersonate Tyra Banks. Over lunch. Ru awarded his old friend the crown. Just like Tyra did with Saleisha.

R264, I liked her enough in season three and ended up hating her in AS1. I think not having Yara there is letting her blossom on her own. It could be nostalgia, but she always seems to make the scenes she’s in much more entertaining.

Gigi and Naomi were both very young when on Drag Race, and I was as thin as they were at the same age.

Terrible challenge. The winning suite was a copy of Club 96 with the vapid whispering and trashy opulence. These challenges don't give anyone much chance to shine - I had no idea who the winner would be.

Jujubee's Mrs Claus look was cheap with a shitty wig. India served the best runway look - an actual 3 in 1 outfit, not 3 different looks stacked on top of each other. Crackers was great too.

Also the designer/decorator judge felt like a real blast from the past when the earlier seasons had people nobody had ever heard of who Ru just happened to know.

She does an "old school" style of drag and it's admirable that she makes her own costumes and works hard to put on a show. She also isn't part of the Drag Race "family" since most of those bitchy queens bully her or ignore her. The queens of AS5 will continue to gun for her since she's not in the clique but I hope that she lasts a few more weeks so that she can leave the show with some clout for future bookings.

I agree with the person who said the song wasn't a very good song to lip sync to. I'm not sure if it's even possible for the at home audience to know who won a lip sync -- really. I think the fairest way to do lip sync is to stop the battle and each queen do an individual lip sync of the same song. I'm assuming they do the dueling thing to keep it vague.

I posted in another thread that I think (based on nothing but my own craziness) that All Stars, unlike the mothership show, is negotiated. I think the elimination order is negotiated with the producers before the season even begins. And then the judges and the producers have to critique the queens and edit the show to make it all work.

by Anonymousreply 32006/20/2020

Monet's drag was rough. Has always been rough, and apparently winning All-Stars hasn't improved it. Still, she won that lip-synch (though JuJu was not trying very hard).

Another who was puzzled by Blair and Mayhem having the winning room. It was a copy of Club 96 and nothing they said was funny or clever.

India had the best runway, with Cracker a close second. Loved Blair's disco jumpsuit, but she should have been clocked for the sandal/sock combo for her Twiggy look. Mayhem looked like a beach ball in her last look.

by Anonymousreply 32106/20/2020

I'm sure it has already been said (didn't have time to read every comment in this thread), but this season of All Stars seems especially low budget and low effort for some reason, almost like things have regressed back to All Stars Season 1 levels of roughness. The challenges seem messy and, even worse, boring. Was this filmed during Season 12's smoke breaks? Even the lighting seems especially unflattering and everything has a cheap feel to it. I like the cast but it seems a bit light on heavy hitters seen on previous All Stars seasons. I can't imagine anyone other than She and Juju in the finale, either.

And regarding the downgraded production quality and overall crappiness of this season...maybe that’s why it was going to be hidden away on Showtime. Maybe they knew it was crap and wanted to limit the audience.

I think Blair just has more life experience now. Cracker seems fine to me, but the gurl needs some time on a shrink's couch to work out some self worth issues. Alexis Mateo's issues are age and weight.

I liked during the reading challenge when Ongina (?) said to Alexis, “You just want to win because no Puerto Rican queen or big girl has ever won the crown!”

Alexis's makeup and hair is beyond cheap and tacky this season. he's never been high fashion but he looks especially dreadful now.

I am impressed with India. I have always thought he was so ugly in drag but I stand corrected, he looks fantastic now.

Mayhem continues to disappoint. he has no snap or pizazz. his timing is off.

I like cracker, I like his personality and I liked his drag. I think he's neurotic and funny.

Mariah, several steps back visually from his original season. he was so glamorous. now he looks like Alexis got stuck in a blender with Raven.

R328 Also, it was filmed RIGHT AFTER Season 12, as most All Star seasons are, and I'm assuming at the exact same time as Celebrity Drag Race (hence Madison Beer's presence). How much do you think her parents paid WOW to get her on the show, btw?

I wish RuPaul/WOW were somehow creative enough to create a non-competitive show for the alumni. Some of them are so great, but it's tedious to see them only competing. And no, I'm not going to subscribe to some half-assed bullshit on WOW Presents, Ru!!

Don't fake cry all the time - this shit is way too scripted. Even Jujubee is fake as fuck. Yes she was a drug addict and she looks 20 years older than 8 years ago. Bad show.

Blair St Clair has her own line of wigs and they are unclockable. I've never seen such flawlessly natural hairlines. Beyonce doesn't look as good. Take a look at untucked and the backstage workroom footage when the ladytestants are pleading to stay. How is Blair's long blond hair with a completely natural hairline possible? No lace. The show is SO BAD that this is all that interests me.

This goes down as one of the worst episodes ever. Everything. India Ferrah has improved her makeup and teefs, but that houndstooth travelling suit was for off, off broadway. Cracker had a cool three way reveal costume. It's too bad he's 4 feet tall and 160 lbs. Should have won the challenge though.

Shea and Juju. What a contest!? FAKE.

r343, it's still a lacefront wig with hair laid over the hairline. I've worked with music celeb hairstylists, and they don't have the concept of cutting the lace back at all, or having the lace match the skin. On, "A Star is Born", LG brought her own hair guy against BC's wishes, and despite the advice of the Department Head hair, he did his own thing. BC showed LG the dailies and pointed out the obvious lace front not cut back or blended and said, "This is why I suggested to use my person, who is used to working in hi-def", and she replied, "Oh, I understand now". They had to digitally erase the hairline for the whole movie.

Alexis is not being “mean” to Cracker (and I like Cracker). She’s just KEEPING IT REAL. There’s a reason she and Shangela were BFFs on Untucked.

- Was Cracker just throwing out bullshit on Ongina and then being like “oops didn’t mean to”? ✅

- Did Cracker say who she “respects” and leave out Alexis from that list? ✅

Alexis is a pageant queen. She doesn’t suffer fools and never has. “Don’t sweetheart me, I’m not sweethearting you.”

re: Shea's main stage look. The major problem is looks with a gimmick are either very impressive when they work well or else they look cheap and costumey. The highpoint of the former was Courtney Act's angel with those huge wings which spread out during her reveal. Even Cracker's reveals on the recent show, starting with the egg, was praiseworthy because it was ingenious, well-planned and well crafted.

by Anonymousreply 37506/21/2020

None of the queens have the full range of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, + current marketability. Of all of them, Jujubee has the first four but isn't current in the way that even Chad was at the time of her win. It may seem funny now, but Chad stayed connected to more contemporary music.

I do hope Jujubee wins, though. He has a persona, intelligence, humor, great wit, silliness, fine looks and a place in drag.

Shea has no persona. She's good, has grown, but is just another typical drag performer. There's nothing more there. In her own way she's clueless because she doesn't see that what she lacks is a stand, a stance, a personality that is about anything but WINNING in an old-school drag way. She's Trinity minus the pageant sense.

Cracker has a persona but it's a rotten one. No spontaneity. She's over-thought-through, mean in a way that doesn't connect, and so self-referential it comes across as selfishness.

Did the others who are gone have more to show? Maybe not for what the show wants, although I prefer all of them - even Derrick - over Mayhem (another "stands for nothing and delivers only drag," which isn't what the show is built on) and Blair (who has NOTHING but a great look and is a creep underneath it). But you can bet that Alexis, India and Mayhem are targeted before the others still left. They're all fun for a retro-drag do but it's like watching the past.

Shea is OWED (people think), they can't deny Jujubee's talent, and Cracker is the dry surface they can smear things on. No way they're not the final three, and if Ru wants to maintain her independent flair, she'd pick Juju but probably will pick Shea.

Jujubee was a fake mess talking about how her "inner saboteur" led her do so many drugs and drink and shit. Well, it's catchy. Blair was more honest. "I work in bars for a living. I was partying too much. I want a long successful career. I had to stop the self destruction." Juju's trying to win honey. She's quick and charming and a great performer on stage - no one gets booked for more weddings. conventions and corporate gigs than Jujubee. He's taken an interesting path - not wanting to travel far from Boston for too long. He was part of a pretty happy couple for a long time. Seemingly. But I don't think Juju is contracted to win. Same as Bendela. Jujubee is not going to travel the world being a Ru Girl. His long term relationship ended, he got sober and lost a bit of his fun. He WAS pretty into drugs. I still like him a lot and he was amazing the couple times we hired him - but he looks older than his age now and his use of RuPlatitudes are a bit disappointing. Still the same guy - funny, fast, smart. Charming performer. But they're all so look so old this time around. Except for Miss Blair and her out of this world WIGS.

Alexis is a cool dude but a COW on stage. India Ferrah. And Ru wanted to change HeidiNCloset's name?

Miz Cracker NEEDS to win. But she can't. He's nuts. I saw him on the late show in a film called Freaks.

Shea is great at being Shea. Fantastic dancer, nice new teeth, a bit of a glow up and a sexy ass man. One of only a few queens to win 4 challenges in his season. Yet he's so easy to forget.

I want Manila Luzon to win. That's a Drag Race Superstar.

by Anonymousreply 38206/21/2020

LOVE Manila, that needs to happen someday. I didn't know JuJu broke up. They had been together quite a long time. Hey, throw out some of Ru's platitudes if it might help you win. She seems to enjoy a little bit of sucking up. Also, I think JuJu does it with a wink, she's been around long enough to know how to play all of the sides while maintaining her "JuJuness". I agree I can't see her wanting to be trapped in a WoW contract. But maybe now that she's older, the security of *some* form of income and facetime isn't half bad to her.

Trixie and Katya aside (and I think Trixie got out of said contract, Katya not being a winner or placer would not have been been obliged to it) who else is really raking it in on those WoW shows? Most of them are dull as fuck. They have a Netflix gig too, though only on the Netflix YouTube channel. Better than a kick in the head, I'm sure.

OT, but speaking of Netflix, I rather liked Dancing Queens, and watching Alyssa Edwards out in the wild, and I hate watching kids usually. Either they didn't renew it or by the time they did Cuntvid showed up and it was too late to film. Sidenote: I know...inner beauty is what matters (eyeroll), blah, blah, but why doesn't that bitch get just a very subtle chin impant? It would really do wonders. I know outer beauty fades, blah, blah, but still, GET ONE.

I'm assuming they are going to do some sort of eliminated queens returning soon, since they only started with 10 in total which would make for a really short season (assuming a final 3 or 4 which would mean 7-8 episodes).

Agree r398. They should camp it up and make fun of it, maybe then it wouldn't be so fucking uptight and dull. We might even have some *gasp* fun. "Here before you are the biggest losers in Drag Race Herstory". Select among the lowest scoring queens, being sure to snag the ones that at least showed some humor. They had to get through the audition process with *some* talent (eh, maybe not).

Just to make it easy, and to see if this works, the first iteration could be the very first (or second) queens chopped. Take as MUCH of this out of Ru's hands as possible. New judges, mix up the challenges, etc. I'd actually like to take Ru out of it completely. The ones who sashay away early aren't beholden to her or WoW. Put it on HBO so they can swear and show skin. They'd need some kind of "name" to attach to this I guess, so maybe Bianca could be the main host, and a rotating panel of drag queens that aren't in Ru's circle (so get zero attention) could be the judges.

I don't understand these stupid challenges......it's not possible for them to rehearse and tape these in one day.....the situations are so contrived it seems impossible to make anything out of them.

It's so hard to look at Shea's face.....and as posted above....this is the first time I've noticed what a weird body shape Cracker has....

Why do most of these queens looks so busted? When you put them up against some of the others, who could pass for woman when walking down the street in drag, half of these look like they wear stockings made of burlap. I really thought drag had evolved, but some of these "all stars" have set it back 100 years.

Cracker gained 35 pounds and it all went to her ass and thighs. She's tiny (5'5"!) so it made her disproportionate looking.

Cracker has no idea how to dress for her proportions. At this point, aside from the totally arbitrary placements, is waiting to see who the lip-synch assassin is going to be.

The other problem with Cracker is his really thick neck. He rarely wears a wig that hides it. I thought the wig he wore for the lipsync actually made him look better than he usually does, only to find out in Untucked that it was Blair's.

by Anonymousreply 45106/27/2020

Cracker's malformation was obvious even when she was thin. I never understood the comparison to Aquaria, who has long legs and a normal body and a neck and is 15 years younger?

I remember Miz Cracker in her original season spoke of her unusual, "artistic" mother and how they lived with nothing - including food for periods of time. I'm not being mean to say I believe her growth is stunted. I really think she is a case of ricketey boo boo with a not bad ass. He looks great in tight jeans.

Cracker has incredible wigs - DRAG QUEEN WIGS. They're big, they're worked on and they're perfect. She knows how to make herself look like a show pony. But with the extra weight - she gets too close to a miniature horse. I liked her plaid outfit - showed off her tiny waist and the big puffy peplum distracted from her big ass. But nothing can correct the body proportions. I'm sure she is well aware of them. I put Miz Cracker in the realm of 'sad' drag queens. She's not funny, it's a type of desperation. Poor kid. Lots of guys who are 5'5 are cute and sexy as hell. Cracker looks like a circus performer or a ride on the merry-go-round.

This season is terrible. So far the worst ever. I think Shea Coulee looks hot. But only as a guy. He hasn't had T H A T much work done. Blair's lips are bigger. Don't be surprise when Blair transitions. He never looks like a guy. He made a cute Bieber though. Case closed.

Oh, how I was hoping for a double elimination this week. Dammit, Miz Cracker!

by Anonymousreply 45306/27/2020

Cracker's platinum blonde ponytail wig she wore down the runway was just so unflattering it reminded me of the wig she wore in her entrance look for S10. This shade of blonde doesn't work for her it only seems to highlight her abnormalities and also makes her look more like a man.

I noticed Indiah and Blaire had similar make-up styles and wigs; Blaire looked flawless, Indiah was severe but it's definitely an improvement from her makeup in the last few runways. Both had the best runways of the week.

Mayhem's GI Joe/Barbie could have done with a prop, maybe a fake rifle gun and dog tags? I think that would've completed it and really sold the look. Cracker was looking pretty basic as well. Nobody bothered to use any themed props?

by Anonymousreply 45406/28/2020

I thought I was the only one that thought Cracker looked "odd". At first I thought it was the weight gain, but it's the way he's put together. I guess you can't fight genetics. And why did Shea and Blair do that to their lips?

by Anonymousreply 45506/28/2020

r454, I would have have Mayhem's outfit bedazzled or sequined, and added the same material to a bomber jacket that could be removed. Maybe added some metallic fringed epaulets underneath.

I watched Bob the Drag Queen's recap, and he talked about props- wasting valuable space for a giant prop like that sometimes isn't feasible for queens with less money.

I think a lot of Queens get lip fillers so they don't have to overdraw their lips all the time and disturb their lipstick when drinking or eating.

by Anonymousreply 45606/28/2020

Hayley Dunphy lookin’ a mess. Those poor kids.

Another terrible unfunny challenge. Alexis shoving food in her bra was the only chuckle, along with India dropping a vase from her puss. Reminded me of Minnie Driver dropping Karen Walker’s jewels on Will and Grace.

The boy bits was worth like a 1 second side gag chuckle but seeing these nelly bitches in snap backs going “OHHHH YO DAWGGGG” 5,000,000 times was the real loser of the week.

Say what you will about Mayhem, but he has a great smile and warm energy.

Again, Juju and Alexis are the only fun parts of this show. BIG HONGRY CUNTLEXIS is a new facet I didn’t know I needed. It just shows the talents of the old queens who didn’t grow up on RPDR are miles above these new bitches.

India is the Roxxy Andrews of this All Stars season; a mediocre performer who would have been gone if Ru was selecting the eliminated queens, but is kept around because the other queens know she increases their odds of winning if they keep her to the end.

You could tell Ru was annoyed when Mariah, a favorite of hers, was eliminated and India remained.

India has shown far more charisma, uniqueness, old school charm and has been far more entertaining than the supposed frontrunners Mizz Cracker and Shea.

I enjoy Trixie a lot, I think she's very funny paired with Katya and her music is 10x better than the majority of drag queen music. Of course, she in no way deserved to win AS3, but once Ben self-eliminated, the crown for that season was meaningless anyways so they may as well have given it to the queen with the biggest fanbase. I also personally find Shangela insufferable and neither Bebe (who I love) or Kennedy were particularly great that season so it's not like there was that much competition.Ru and the show will always want to be seen as launching the Queens into stardom and Trixie is one of the best examples of that so of course they'd further tie her to the brand/Ru.

They’re disenfranchised. Alcoholism is huge in the community. A lot of people experience the loss of a parent. Drag for me is all about taking something negative and making it something positive. If I was allowed to have girl’s toys when I was little and nothing bad ever happened to me, I wouldn’t look like a kid’s toy now and have dark comedy.

Anyone else watched Drag Race Canada? The queens have a cheaper aesthetic but it's already more fun that this season of All Stars. Went right back to basics with a photoshoot challenge

by Anonymousreply 55407/03/2020

Yes, r554. They seem fun. But Brooklyn has a personality of a potato.

by Anonymousreply 55507/03/2020

Also a lot of the Canadian queens have tragic hairlines on their wigs. Too low on the forehead and too full/doll looking.

by Anonymousreply 55607/03/2020

Yes, R554 - I enjoyed it more than I thought I would!

Elisha Cuthbert was a fantastic guest judge. I think I like that the guest judge will be the one doing the main stage runway walk and pose in Ru's absence.

Plus, I love that "The Realness" is the runway song, one of my favorites from any season.

The judges are lacking in the Canadian show. And who is that annoying Asian queen with the shitty baggy bodysuits and shittier attitude.

I just saw Brooke's actual name realized that I know Brooke's family. They were family friends when I was younger. I am older than Brooke and haven't been to his house or around him since he was 8 or 9 but what a small world!

by Anonymousreply 56007/03/2020

I enjoyed the Canadian debut but two things bugged me.

1) Having the guest judge do the hosting felt odd.

2) I don't know what the judges saw, I thought the other queen definitely won the lip sync.

by Anonymousreply 56107/03/2020

I wasn’t going to watch the Canadian one but I LOVE Elisha Cuthbert so I might do the first ep.

by Anonymousreply 56207/03/2020

So what R558? Jeffrey Bowyer- Chapstick is delicious and Stacey Mackenzie and Traci Melchor - I'm in. There's a few great looking dolls in that Canadian group too. Loved the photo challenge. Brooke-Lynne Hites is really hard to figure out. So fucking boring. Nice ballet legs for a DUDE. Herses was a bad season amongst many bad seasons of Drag Race. Who won again. Oh yeah, Yvie Oddley.

So tonight is the Dating Snatch Game. Not a bitch there can be funny or impersonate ANY woman. Blair is a woman. Alexis can be funny but in an overly cutesy way for a big fat truck driver.

Check out the Canadians. So fresh and still learning. Broke. The CBC must have granted them a heritage clothing allowance. I love Canada. Just not Brook - Lynne or that Iranian mess from Drag Race Season 37. The Canadian iteration is promising. Traci is a friend of mine and a cooler woman you'll never meet. Stacey is ANTM Drag Queen realness and a freakazoid of nature. JBC's hip are too wide to be my BF but I'll fuck him as The Bitchelor.

Oh yeah, Alexis and Juju and Blair and Shea. So exciting. I'm beginning to hope that Miss India takes the crown!

by Anonymousreply 56307/03/2020

Why Vanjie? She's always been terrible at lip syncing.

by Anonymousreply 56407/03/2020

Shea is so goddamn boring. Self righteous queens are a BORE. I expect it from the haggish frauen that are carried to the end of Survivor. It’s EXHAUSTING here.

Alexis deserved the win. Or Juju. Yes, the great gay icon Flava Flav. 🙄

India is a dumb cunt for breaking up the early season queen alliance that COULD HAVE BEEN.

by Anonymousreply 56507/03/2020

r563 just watched DRCAN - omg it was fun. OMFG Jimbo - the best entrance ever "now i am going to spin in a circle" The getup, the act and sooo fucking funny. All the queens were good.

by Anonymousreply 56607/03/2020

The lipsync "assassins" are chosen because they're all queens who were planned for the Werk the World tour that should have been happening right now. It's advertising.

by Anonymousreply 56707/03/2020

I know next weeks assassin and she's the first legit assassin so far. She's not on the Werk the World tour or LV. It's a great one!

by Anonymousreply 56807/03/2020

Alyssa Edwards is a legit Drag Queen Assassin and Monet ain't bad either. Who's more legit? Morgan was fine and Vanjie, hell no. I bet it's boring ole Latrice Royale. The lip queen assassins seldom won drag Race. Coco Montrese saved more LSFYL's than any other contestant. Manila and Kennedy are fantastic too. Can't really think of who you're referring to R568. Is it Tatianna? Shangela? There are no others that I remember who really stand out as ASSASSINS.

Shea annoys to fuck out of me. I really wish I could see what the rest of you see.

by Anonymousreply 57107/03/2020

Shea is a great LSer. I think she's good but not great.

by Anonymousreply 57207/03/2020

I could swear heard Vanjie say something during her behind the scenes filming to the effect that she knew she wasn't the greatest pick for "assasin" status. Having her on was most certainly for the drama of being Alexis' drag daughter and the simple fact a lot of people get a kick out of her. I REALLY wish she had not gotten those fucking veneers. I miss her old look. Still has a lot of heart though.

by Anonymousreply 57307/03/2020

Tonight was one of the messiest Drag Race episodes ever. It totally made up for the lackluster previous episodes.

by Anonymousreply 57407/03/2020

Cracker, Blair, and India should have been eliminated on the spot for their wretched Snatch Game performances.

by Anonymousreply 57507/03/2020

Did Cracker attempt a joke even once? Blair wasn't too bad but the other two in her group overshadowed her. Love her or hate her Alexis continues to make great TV

by Anonymousreply 57607/04/2020

Cracker's performance - Lazy Gaga

No effort to really even change her look.

Eartha Kitt needs retired now if all people can do is cat jokes. Valentina's was at least absurd.

Shocked that nobody has ever done Goop or Dolly Parton

by Anonymousreply 57707/04/2020

Why does Miss Cracker keep saying she is a comedy queen? Show us!

by Anonymousreply 57807/04/2020

Man that was the worst Snatch Game ever! It was even worse than last weeks awkward to watch unfunny performances.

Cracker was appalling as Gaga. Blair was wooden and unfunny as Ellen. India was just the worst. What a mess.

Then, India knew she was going and decided to go out with maximum cuntforce. Pretty low.

by Anonymousreply 57907/04/2020

r578 her picks for snatch game are .....interesting. First she picked a reference not many people would get except maybe her grandma. Then to do Lady Gaga - this kiss of death in snatch game.

by Anonymousreply 58007/04/2020

Meanwhile RuPaul deleted her instagram and twitter accounts - too much Fracking joking??

by Anonymousreply 58107/04/2020

R580 I’ve never understood the hype about her and this series is just reinforcing that. Doing Lady Gaga is a choice. However... the latest episode was pretty entertaining.

by Anonymousreply 58207/04/2020

And she didn't even bother with a costume R580. It was just the same old Cracker wig and a boring dress that Gaga would never wear.

And she wasn't funny at all. Painful to watch.

All Stars is really scraping the bottom of the barrel this time. There have been too many of them now.

When India did Jeffree he should have made references to makeup pallettes, and also imitated or mocked how Jeffree talks during his videos. He goes, welcome to my channel , today, we will premiere the whatever palette, etc. There are alot of Jeffree videos on youtube and alot to riducule about his personality and demeanor and talking style.

by Anonymousreply 59107/04/2020

I would love Snatch Game to be limited to impressions of stars who have stood the test of time: Judy, Marilyn, Liz, Liza, Cher, Dolly, Ethel, etc. I’m tired of seeing impressions of current nobodies.

by Anonymousreply 59207/04/2020

Blair's plastic surgery freaked me out during this episode. It hadn't bothered me too much before, but he looks like a fucking freak out of drag.

by Anonymousreply 59307/04/2020

I have no idea who the two guest judges were or why I should I care about them. The blond one annoyed me for some reason. I know the Canadian one has been on before, but who is he and what is he known for?

Ms. Cracker, I don't know if it's editing or what, but she just comes across as a bundle of nerves and insecurities. I don't get. I think I'm the only one who likes Blair. His runways are stunning. Jujube is the best by far.

by Anonymousreply 59407/04/2020

Cracker is prettier than Gaga. Looks like Cracker was copying GaGa's Golden Globes gown. Not sure why she wasn't clutching a mock award and talking up her "craft" to at least create some kind of character.

Shea came off as very unlikeable with her whole "I still haven't gotten over losing the crown that I deserved" schtick. Clearly she has not idea why she lost -still.

That was some high-level shit stirring India pulled. But seems if Alexeis and Mayhem did try to swing the vote, it would have been on film. And what was with the bf's eyes??

by Anonymousreply 59507/04/2020

Not sure what the judges were drinking in the green room, but all were having a great time, ever from Ru's walk out. I was having fun with them...and the snatch game was about extremes! 3 terribly unfunny queens, and three who knocked it out of the park. Juju and Shea were just having fun and Alexis decided to simple play off the other terrible two so that helped her. Overall, I like this episode for cringe, laughs and drama!

by Anonymousreply 59607/04/2020

I believe India. I just wonder why they didn't show the footage of it happening, unless they are saving it for the reunion. My biggest ugh with this season is that everyone seems to have already decided the Shea is the anointed one. She is not that great.

I agree that Eartha Kitt should be retired as a Snatch Game character, but Juju nailed it.

I'd love to see someone do Bette Davis or Tallulah Bankhead as well as Jinkx did Little Edie. RuGirls struggle with camp icons, as witnessed by Robbie Turner's Diana Vreeland, Cracker's Dorothy Parker, and Sasha Velour's Marlene Dietrich (which is the best of the three but still not very good).
