RuPaul’s Drag Race: Vegas Review

Thoughts? BTW did a search and didn’t find a thread on this.

I liked the first episode. Yvie is very sweet. When she saw the show poster for the first time it was so sweet.

by Anonymousreply 108/28/2020

I bought the season on Prime for $6.99 for SD. Shows come out every week. I think it's worth it.

Naomi Smalls is a diva. Vangie is adorable. Yvie is my favorite. Derrick is beautiful as Britney, but seems a bit dim. Asia is annoying (I think it’s her teeth) The less said about Cameron the better.

Derrick is a total shit stirrer and a mean girl. Hate him/her!

by Anonymousreply 508/29/2020

I like Kameron. She's clearly an introvert and probably her harshest critic. Asia in episode 2 jumps the gun inserting herself into other peoples drama.

Derrick and his throuple look tired.

Derrick the fat bald old fuck and his ugly boyfriends need to die in a grease fire.

The 2nd episode was great. Fun show. It makes me want to see the live show {which is the point} but I wasn't never interested in seeing this live show before. It looked horrible. I might be wrong. I've seen Donny and Marie and Paula Abdul live is this showroom. It's old but really good up close and personal room.

So much manufactured drama, love it.

by Anonymousreply 908/31/2020

Six comments in two weeks, huh? Must be good.

I haven't watched it. Is it worth watching? I find Derrick Berry so off putting that he alone is a deterrent, even though I really came to love Vangie during All Stars and I like most of the others. (Kamron...meh.)

I just rewatched Asia's season. I didn't even remember her, but I really liked her a lot in rewatching it. The teeth are hard to look at, but she seems smart and insightful, even with a few dramatic moments. There was only one instance in which I didn't like her, and that's when she told the judges that Cracker is not a star and never will be one. That was nasty, and she admitted it and apologized on camera in her confessional video immediately, and also apologized immediately at the reunion.

By the way, Cracker was really top tier in her original season. I don't have any idea why the story was rewritten on All Stars. There was no hint of a shady, manipulative, deceptive, super-anxious Miz Cracker on Miz Cracker's original season, but the whole All Stars storyline was about redeeming and overcoming those personality traits. It made no sense to me in watching the All Stars season and it makes even less now that I've rewatched Cracker's original season.

Derrick has had major camera time the first 2 episodes. I'm hoping that's it for the season for him and his bfs. He's annoying and all this beef with other queens is because of him and his bfs.

Of all the queens on all the seasons of Drag Race, these are the ones they choose to launch a stage show. Wow. I never need to see these people again yet alone pay to see them live.

They can’t even do fake drama in an entertaining way,

Binged it last night. Not a huge fan of this kind of reality show but have to admit it's fun and bitchy and I'm here for it. I never thought much of Kameron but he's very handsome and a sweet person-fuck that NY boyfriend. I love how Derrick and Naomi started shit with Asia and then blame her for it. So childish and, again, I'm here for it. The show looks fun but I couldn't stand two hours of straight women "woo"ing in my ear.

by Anonymousreply 1509/12/2020

This show has reinforced my liking Vangie and Yvie. Derrick is such a hateful dim bulb, and Kameron is actually showing vulnerability. Asia, whooo she has some damage, and Naomi is somewhat entertaining. I wonder why Aquaria didn't participate in this, she does put on a good show.

Kameron could be attractive but those damned awful tattoos ruin it. WTF is that one on his neck anyway??

Derrick is a total cunt but who didn't know that? Now I believe India with all the bullshit between he and Derrick. Asian is likable but a major drama queen.

Derrick is the only one trying to make this show entertaining. What would they talk about without him? Bring back his shit-stirring boyfriend.

Is this Vegas show really just the queens dancing to those awful RuPaul songs? No thanks.

Yes and the story line is dreadful.

by Anonymousreply 2209/12/2020

The only memory I have of Asia is her blubbering at Rupaul in season 9's reunion over The Vixen, and it appears she's still blubbering to this day. Somebody in another thread said she (and Kameron) were bi, (LOL) I honestly can't imagine any woman seeing THAT as a sexual partner.

Vyie Oddly isn't as ugly with some hair and eyebrows. Wow, he really milked his "condition" on S9, he acted like he was at deaths door even though he pretended he didn't want the sympathy vote. Doesn't look as if he has had any real problems since then.

Twitter thinks Asia O'Hara is being gaslighted - is she ? It was too bad too see her move all her stuff out of her dressing room. Who takes someone to the top of the Eiffel Tower just to break up with them. Poor Kameron. Nobody likes Derrick Berry - he gets trashed on Twitter. But I like Derrick Berry, I think he is adorable. Poor Asia O'Hara, his parents sent him away at age 11.

Three of the six queens are insufferable. I do like Yvie, Vangie, and Kameron.

by Anonymousreply 2809/12/2020

I really like this show. Glad the storyline with Kameron’s boring boyfriend is over. There’s lots of great drama. Asia O’Hara does not come across well on this show. Toxic and high-maintenance. And completely delusional. The fact that she told her boyfriend that the meeting with Grand Poohbah Randy went well was telling.

But the fanbase are complete imbeciles so I’m not surprised they’re on Asia’s side.

Derrick and his boyfriends are terrific villains. Shame this is only six episodes.

by Anonymousreply 2909/12/2020

I love all of them, even Nebraska Thunderfuck and his antics. Hope Vanjie finds a BF .

The dancer Naomi Smalls made out with was the only thing I was really keen on.

by Anonymousreply 3109/12/2020

The drama with Asia is bullshit. Her response saying Naomi was the weakest link was clearly about her as a team player, rather than a comment on her abilities as a performer. Naomi is a shit-stirrer

by Anonymousreply 3209/13/2020

r30, from the previews, looks like Vangie is going to comfort Kameron through his hard times. Derrick and Nebraska have been trying to make Nebraska happen for years- I was rewatching old seasons of RPDR, and in Derrick's first season, he was wearing Nebraska t-shirts.

by Anonymousreply 3309/13/2020

Asia seems really damaged. It’s not a sign of a healthy relationship if one person keeps a huge number of secrets from the other person. And they’re engaged! Maybe Asia can spend some of that money on intensive therapy.

Is Kameron bald? Is that why he wears those awful hats? That bf... does anyone who can see that guy’s ass really think that he’s going to go even one day without a deep dicking? Guys who look like that don’t have to do long-distance, lol.

by Anonymousreply 3409/13/2020

Kameron’s boyfriend was cute, but not cute or interesting enough for a long distance relationship. You would expect that a semi-celebrity, and a decent looking one at that, could do better.

You can swing a cat in NYC and hit thirty identical gay guys to him.

by Anonymousreply 3509/14/2020

Naomi Smalls isn't the worst queen to have been on the show, but she irrationally bothers me. She must be so irritating to be around. I still don't think being skinny is a talent.

Asia's controlling nature creeps me out. Woah @ that family shit she's been hiding from her FIANCEE. She's not controlling in a real "perfectionist" way, she comes across as someone who needs to be in control because she can't handle any uncertainty.

Vanjie is so likeable, she needs her own show.

Drag is a spectrum, it isn't always about passing, that's true. But even Adore Delano's drag is more transformative than that of Naomi Smalls. He might as well not even bother with makeup. Seriously.

by Anonymousreply 3909/14/2020

I usually despise Naomi for all the reasons you’ve stated, but I find easygoing and friendly in a way I wouldn’t expect. She’s strangely one of the only ones to come across well on this show. Derrick is a great villain and has a career with shows like this. The real casualty of this show is Asia. What a rotten egg. I hope we aren’t subjected to her on All Stars anytime in the near future.

by Anonymousreply 4009/14/2020

R32, I totally agree. It frustrates the shit out of me that no one (especially Asia) is pointing out what Asia actually meant. It's like a poorly written farce, in which the characters are caught in a misunderstanding that could be completely solved with one simple conversation.

Can't stand Naomi, and hate the living shit out of Derrick Berry. If it weren't for loving the living shit out of Vangie and Yvie, I wouldn't watch at all.

by Anonymousreply 4109/14/2020

Naomi is a cunt. Britney is worse.

by Anonymousreply 4209/14/2020

[quote] Six comments in two weeks, huh?

I occasionally watched old school drag shows on TV as a kid in the 80s, to the horror of my father and brother. Well, I sometimes used makeup as well so I doubt it was that much of a shock to them. I grew out of the makeup phase by the time I was like 16 and have rarely wanted to try some on again.

Now, decades later I've tried to watch Drag Race a time or two but besides slight amusement at some over the top performances or crazy costume/makeup combos I just don't see much interesting about the whole thing. Are gay men watching the show or is it mostly het girls and even guys doing it?

by Anonymousreply 4309/14/2020

Asia is and always has been a cunt and there is TOO MUCH DRAG RACE.

by Anonymousreply 4409/15/2020

Fuck Nebraska - grasping no talent cunt.

by Anonymousreply 4509/15/2020

I don't like it? I mean I've watched Drag Race since it started airing in 2009 for the talent and fashion on the show. I've watched all of the world wide versions (US, UK, Thailand, Canada) and am a massive fan of most of the Queens that have appeared on the show... It fucking sucks.

RPDR is fake as hell but this scripted ass fake housewives show just doesn't do it for me. It feels like an extremely poorly written and terribly acted soap opera from 1982. It really showcases the lack of acting talent RuPaul and the Queens posses. They all exceed pretty well in short burst skits, but this full on scritped show just feels like a high school play production where the performers haven't come into their own and everything comes off wooden and non-believable as a real conversation.

Baldy Spears has always been painfully dreadful to watch outside of the tidbits of drama he brings and his gross ass threesome relationship has plagued the word with his severely untalented boyfriend nervanda or whatever his name is... His "performances" (or flailing as a more proper discriptor) are embarassingly bad and I cannot believe any actual bars in Las Vegas and the surrounding area ACTUALLY pay money to have nymeria flop around on a stage like a semi-dead polluck during mating season.

Naomi lost me as a fan the moment she voted to remove her idol and the rightful winner of All-Stars 4 Manilla. As time has moved on she's only become more and more unlikeable to the point I can't even force myself to like the basic teen magazine fashions she wears.

He's not on the show but personally I wish aquavelva would shut the aboslute fuck up and never speak again. What a boring, vapid, stupid, untalented hack that only pushes social agenda's on Twitter to look "woke" and grow a larger tween fandom. I just find aquamarine complely inauthentic and phony.

Brooke should've won over Eevee, she bombed snatch game, her fashion SUCKS and lets be honest she only won because of the forced "sad" story of her illness even though for apparently how "sick" she tries to appear pushes her body far past the point it should go, if she was being totally genuine. It if was as bad and as real as she claims with how hard she pushes her body at this point she'd be in a wheelchair. I'm not saying she doesn't have an illness, I'm just saying it's no where near as bad as she claims.

Cameron is fucking boring. I don't care to listen to one of the hottest men ever to appear on Drag Race (besides the gross blow up doll lips) bitch, piss and moan over insecurities and "I'm not good enough" self-rhetoric. He's posted thrist trap underwear pictures for literal YEARS. He knows he's hot, he knows he's an amazing performer and he knows he's well loved because of the fake modesty angle. I just really find his "storyline" fake and contrived. The between/after the show sorta bits where he's losing his shit and screaming at everyone that works behind the scenes just makes me think the personality he shows on television is completely fake like Ellen.

I really liked Vanjie during her first season, the voice and attitude of her's was everything. Now I just kind of find her annoying. She's always screaming at me through the TV like Tamar Braxton and I just can't enjoy it anymore. She's one of those people that got famous with a certain characteristic and leans into it 24/7. Like you don't need to scream every single time you appear on camera... The best performances have peaks and vallies, but she's never gotten that memo even while on RPDR.

The only person on the show that I have always completely enjoyed (besides the butterfly murdering) or haven't changed to a negative opinion of is Asia. She remains a light in the darkness so to speak in regards to the cast. She's full of grace, humility, humour and fun something that the other main cast members are missing.

by Anonymousreply 4609/15/2020

Asia gets off on pretending to be the wise mother to drag queens but she's really just a cunt in real life and not that smart.

I cannot believe that anyone thought turning a "RuSical" into a stage show was a good idea! They are hard enough to watch in the 8-11 minutes they take on the show, but imagine sitting through an HOUR of that shit?! On one hand, it makes a lot of sense for there to be a RuPaul-related drag stage show in Vegas, but why isn't one that actually showcases the girls with their real "talents"? Lame!!

by Anonymousreply 4809/15/2020

I don’t know what R48 is harping on about. Yeah, the Drag Race structure of the show is cheesy, but it’s purposefully flimsy and the stage show is predominantly the queens lip syncing and doing what they do best.

The full show should still be up on YouTube. You can view it online.

by Anonymousreply 4909/18/2020

Forgive me, R49 thought the Revue was done in a "RuSical" style as you see on the show (that awful "Baby, we made it!!! Baby, we made it!!!!" song) with Ru songs. I did look up a clip and they DID lipsync to non-RuPaul songs, so guess I'm wrong.

R58 in Ru's defense, most of the drag queens on her shows are complete idiots, as is the audience. That's why her pop psychology sayings and "Find your truth"-level wisdom have an impact on them.

Vanjie is very endearing, such a warm (if annoying) personality. She's refreshing compared to queens like Naomi.

R61 Is correct, Asia is PERFECT for a therapist who'd love a challenge! I didn't mind her on season 10, but she makes me nervous on this show. You can see the cracks forming when she doesn't get her way.

It looks like the queens were supposed to rotate through the revue. According to Wkipedia (...): Aquaraia, Coco Montrese, Kim Chi, India Ferrah, Eureka O'Hara were some of the queens who were supposed to also appear in the Revue. That would be a fun cast for a reality show. Another thing Covid-19 stole from us.

India Ferrah from this past All Stars hates his guts because Nebraska got picked over her for a local club gig. Shannel from S1/AS1, who hosted Las Vegas's big drag brunch pre-COVID, is Derrick's ex, but I think they're on better terms than India and Derrick.

LMAO at R67. It’s only been two years into Aquaria’s reign and she’s already an alternate for chorus work in a middling Vegas revue. The runner-up from the season is getting raves for her work in an acclaimed HBO series and Aquaria has been relegated to serving as a woke scold on Twitter and not much else.

Karma does come through sometimes...
