by Anonymousreply 604/03/2021

I feel like Symone’s breakdown in the confessional about how much was “invested” in her being drag race was telling. These looks aren’t cheap! It must cost a fortune to make it to drag race these days. And Kandy obviously doesn’t have the resources that some of the others do. But her pocket dress, and her beast look, were truly two of the worst runway looks ever of all time. Periodt.

Are you kidding me? Symone's pocket dress is one of my all time favorite looks

by Anonymousreply 1504/03/2021

I just feel like Mik can’t be next to go, and really shouldn’t be F2. That’s why I wonder if, for the sake of optics, they’ll pull a F3. It might make it appear less obvious or more palatable to the wokestans if they make Mik second runner up in the finale. And the way Kandy went from top to bottom this week makes it seem like they boosted her up and kept her around for the drama, but now it’s time to go. She had a pretty shitty runway. She’s had just as bad in the past IMO, but this time she didn’t get away with it.

Symone's got this. She's one of my faves of all time actually.

The show used Kandy the entire time. I'm sure she's fine with it but she won't have a big career. Maybe and tour with the cast but after that it's back to small clubs and crowds.

by Anonymousreply 1804/03/2021

I loved Symone's pocket look, and I have to say that GottMik's was smart and very flattering. However as someone said upthread, Mik is doing the same ditzy, nasal vocal-fry voiced Paris Hilton character when he needs to "act".

Kandy has to go next week, especially since a big girl won on RPDR UK.

My biggest fear is they end up keeping Kandy next week and going with a final 4. Ugh.

by Anonymousreply 2004/03/2021

R13 why would they do a top 3 when they have done a top four since season 8? And what do you mean about Kandy’s health? Unless you count S12 but that was different.

Anyway I am not going to watch the next episode probably. The final 4 dance video is always my least favorite. If the reunion and finale are done via zoom then I wont watch those either. I just don’t give a shit about this show anymore.

R39 I'd argue that the show jumped the shark long before Kandy. At least by season 11 with Silky.

I think the show started to go downhill when drag queens who started drag because they were INSPIRED by RPDR started to be cast. That's when the show started to become lackluster. Now it's starting to cast queens who were young children when the show first started airing.

[quote]After all these seasons you must have figured out how these shows work by now.

Which is EXACTLY what is wrong with the show at this point.

Remember when Drag Race was edgy and really, really funny because it was a surprising satire of other reality shows? It took America's Top Model and Project Runway, shook them around and made fun of them. A man in a dress acting like he thought he was Naomi Campbell or a contestant in a self-designed schmatta that looked like shit actually made me laugh. Ru asking the judges for their opinions and then completely ignoring them was a great send-up of Tyra Banks or Heidi Klum.

Now, it's like yet another episode of a series that has long outlived its purpose. Not only is each challenge basically a repeat of challenges past, you can actually predict which of those tired old challenges is going to pop up on which episode.

It has pretty much devolved into Gilligan's Island or 24.

by Anonymousreply 5004/04/2021

Drag Race has always kept queens past their deserved rank when they make good TV. But the trend they started in season 10 - take a mildly charming plus size queen, wildly over praise and over reward her, and keep her until the finals to create division - has really wrecked the show.

Eureka, Silky, and Kandy have some good qualities, but the show does them no favour by making the audience resent the fuck out of them. You would think that someone in production would realize that the recent season nearly everyone loved - 12 - was a hit because they had to edit out their plus size villain entirely.

In earlier seasons, Ginger and Darienne (who were MUCH more talented) earned their challenge wins and lip sync victories fairly.

Here’s hoping they don’t pull the same shit in season 14 - I won’t sit through another season of the same shitty storyline.

Eureka and Darienne are a thousand times more talented than Mumbles Muse.

by Anonymousreply 5704/04/2021

Symone should've won the last challenge. Her outfit was amazing, and in the acting challenge, she didn't resort to the old drag queen "SCREAMING IS ACTING" method like Rose always does.

Olivia and Mikk - same ol', same ol' in the acting challenge. Olivia acts like a dumb bimbo and prances around on her toes while Mikk speaks through her nose and channels Paris Hilton. It was time for Olivia to go, but Kandy should've gone way before her.

Kandy - what a fucking joke she is. Ru should've sent her home as soon as she saw her barreling down the runway in that abortion.

What is wrong with the show, that none of you want to hear and/or accept is you've aged out of it. That is why I gave up Big Brother and Project Runway, I aged out of it. I still hang on to Drag Race because it's still fun in places, but a lot of it is side-eyeing this new generation gays just as the generation of gays before us -- side-eyed us and watching Ru become more disconnected from it all and throw out self help shit that even he doesn't believe.

HAHAHAHA!

by Anonymousreply 6404/04/2021

r63 I kind of wondered about that for myself as well. I'm 53 so was already likely aged out of it when the show started. But it was fun and different and referential. It didn't take itself that seriously and you still had the parody vibe. Most importantly, the snot nosed woke parasites hadn't co-opted it for themselves yet. Now in interviews you have contestants openly worrying about the fans. Talk about a mood killer, and a creativity killer too.

But when I watch the UK version, I feel like it is all fun all over again. Not just for the contestants but the judges as well. I'm sure that won't last long, but I'm going to enjoy it while I can. I really missed watching it last week.

by Anonymousreply 6504/04/2021

That's why I liked Thailand and UK, (and Priyanka)- the contestants were still passionate and having fun, despite being stressed out- they were less concerned about the social optics ("branding"), to an extent. Holland seemed very micromanged for some reason.

R66 I'm still surprised by how good Drag Race Thailand was (season 2, at least) was. The queens just had raw energy and drive that has been neutered on Drag Race US. They were shady, funny, energetic, passionate, etc. I mean... Miss Gimhuay having the fucking NERVE to cheat!! Then Mocha Diva calling her out. On. Stage. Then the fact Art-Arya had to tell the queens to STOP SETTING THEMSELVES ON FIRE!!! It was just a great season. Another thing I enjoyed about Thailand was that the judging was less stale than US/UK with Ru and Michelle and just less awful than Canada's Drag Race. There were some weird judging decisions, to be sure, but overall it was refreshing. You could tell Art-Arya and Pangina Heals took their job "seriously" and really cared about the girls. It was so different from what we've become used to.

I'm not expecting much from Drag Race Australia, to be honest. Just more of Ru and Michelle's nonsense. I hope Drag Race Spain is good.

Symone has to win this. She's been the most clever and consistent during this otherwise lackluster season. She's probably one of the best queens to appear on this show in quite a few seasons. I think even Rupaul is a fan as he has seemed mostly impressed by Symone from the start and noticeably reacts to her in a genuine way that doesn't feel as perfunctory as it does with some of the other contestants.

by Anonymousreply 7904/04/2021

r78, Apparently between $16-60 million.

And yes, r73, Thailand's judges really wanted all of the girls to succeed-tough love! I suppose the reason why Pangina is an international contestant is because she's fluent in English, which is a shame, because S2 queens are great- I love Vanda Miss Joaquim, Kana Warrior, Bandit, Tormai and Maya B'Haro. Also Annee Maywong from S1, whom I mentioned previously upthread.

Even if Symone doesn't win, she'll have a fine career ahead of her, especially since the world is starting to be vaccinated and opening up again.

by Anonymousreply 8004/04/2021

Just reading those names that R80 mentions from S2 Thailand makes me smile. I loved the way Art Arya would pronounce them by biting down hard on each syllable then critiquing them in a blend of Thai and English. They were a great bunch of contestants.

by Anonymousreply 8104/04/2021

R81 Yes, I really grew to love the way Art-Arya spoke. I'm sure that sounds super weird, but I got so used to it. MEWWWZYIK!!

I watched a few interviews with art Art-Arya and she (he? how do they identify?) seems like a very warm person. They're lucky to have her as a mentor! I *love* that she was so MOVED by some of the lipsyncs, but ALSO made them start over again when they sucked!!!

R80 I have to admit that I really liked Srimala even though she probably overstayed her welcome. She was hilarious, almost like a Thai Tammie Brown.

Cute. Gottmik has got talent. She's like Raja that way. Multi talented makeup artist, wannabe runway model, a good illustrationist and true fashionista. I don't like either of them too much, but you can see how drag is a natural extension of all their interests. Raja is really puzzling to me. Cuz that dude is a MAN. But he's committed to being some version of a runway model in his head. Even as he approaches 60 years old. Friend of the Ru, no more. Raja is way too down market for Ru now. But history will repeat itself. Gottmik is going to win.

Symone and Gigi being so close is nice actually. They are living in the same space these days. Symone has way more depth and personality on Drag Race - but they are both dedicated to being weird and near perfect. Just because Gigi comes across as robotic mamma's boy doesn't mean he's not a nice guy. Symone's confessional this week was one of the most honest in many years. Those were real tears. He doesn't want to let people down. Funny how they're all just putting on a show. Gigi is ridiculously conceited, but probably a good friend if you're a different color....

Gottmik is looking for a chosen family too. I don't think she had to cut off her tits to find one. They can always grow back. She's going to win.

I'm now getting a vibe that Rose is going to win. She's a bit older (barely, but ageism is a drag in Drag,) so it would be nice to see someone who can barely order a drink a take this thing. She's well liked by most everyone and that's something. She wouldn't be controversial like a GM win would be. Kandy, well she's a dullard and not talented but she is a big girl, and the whole "we owe big girls a win" (when this is the last big girl on the planet that would deserve it) has me nervous. That said, speaking of dullards, NO one could be that fucking dumb to let Kandy win this thing. (Oh gdd, famous last words). While I'm rooting for Symone, she's getting shaky, and all of the Gigi family styling magic can only go so far if you are starting to look like a deer in the headlights. Personally, I hope Symone wins, but from what I'm hearing here and there, Rose is enjoying a last minute surge, so it wouldn't shock me if she was chosen as a "safe win". At this point JUST FUCKING END IT ALREADY.

As long as should she win, Rose spends a big chunk of her winnings on skin resurfacing.

I usually like my men, for lack of a better word, more maculine but there is something about that Joey Jay that just gets me revved up when he's out of drag. I would say that Joey Jay is the best looking, out of drag, contestant in the herstory of Drag Race.

R43, how is Gigi everything wrong with drag race? She is not my favorite and I think she seems dumb irl but she showed versatility on the show - she did well in improv, singing, acting, etc.

by Anonymousreply 134Last Wednesday at 3:28 PM

Gigi needed a bit of seasoning. I was actually rooting for her to win. The only criticism she seemed to get was she was too confident. Drag is all about confidence. In her season a number of queens who hosted or guested Pit Stop, including Trixie, kind of kept her at an arm's length. A bit of damning with faint praise from older, established queens. too. Then, when it turned out that it wasn't just her mother who was one hell of a talent in the outfit department, but Gigi turned out to be no slouch in hair and makeup (and really does have a very well developed sense of humor for her age or any age), well now she's getting the respect she deserves. She's pretty much a shoo-in for any All Stars she appears on.

Here is a link with her on Trixie and Katya's podcast.

Gigi was great as the Robot in Snatch Game. One of the few times that Ru advised against it the choice, but still awarded the win. She was also excellent in the Madonna challenge, even though JAN really should have won that one. Face Crack.

Gigi does look like Frankenstein out of drag and the long angular face never fully disappears in drag. That is an eating disorder face. Skeletal. The bitch MUST wear BANGS, at all times.

Gigi's perfectionism (and cheating) is what cost her the win. Jaida was the right choice. She had a two hour parade outside her house in Milwaukee. She was perfection as a performer and a runway queen. Watch the finale again.

Season 12 was the best in many years. A great cast, runway lewks and performances.

Gigi cheated in the finale challenge by breaking lockdown rules and filming her solo at an outside studio. This was discovered before the live finale and she was made to do it again from home. It was obviously much less impressive. That A Ha song. It's before my time. But yeah, she cheated.

It factored into her losing no doubt, Though Jaida clearly won the live finale fair and square anyway. And the season too. I don't think Gigi could even win an all stars. But they're running out of winners, so maybe. Gigi doesn't have a huge fanbase. Most people agreed with Jaida's win. Done.

Reddit made a big deal out of Gigi for “cheating” because they already decided that Jaida HAD to win and they looked at Gigi as her biggest competition. And I was and still am team Jaida FWIW, she is the most deserving winner in years.

But I don’t think Gigi did anything wrong by shooting from a studio. She had a lot on the line, of course she would try to do things right.

And she gets a bad rep for having her mom make her outfits. Most of the Queens go to designers, why shouldn’t she use her mom?

My only issue is that Gigi is praised as a fashion queen when she isn’t. She is more costumes and camp.

I think Gigi lacks something any good drag queen should have. Intestines.

When drag queens say that a guy's face is a brick - it means masculine, angular, wide jawed, strong chin and a prominent brow bone and forehead. Therefore hard to feminize. Gigi's head as a guy looks like an ACTUAL brick. Just a solid rectangular block of cement.

By the way, word on the street is she actually broke quarantine to do that video with JS, so if you want to find something to bitch about, have at that.

Remember, that season NONE of the broads could get work doing their thing. Hell, they still can't. So I get that a check is a check is a check. That said, doing the JS video, especially if she indeed broke quarantine to do it, was a stupid fucking move.

I thought Gigi was damn near untouchable at the halfway point of Season 12, but she really was on autopilot for the second half and was lucky to avoid the bottom two on a couple of occasions, where she was saved by her always top-notch runways.

Despite all that, I did expect her to win, although I wasn't excited about it, and yes, I agree with R163: finding out just before the finale that she collaborated with the odious Jeffree Star (who I blissfully had never even heard of until Trixie Mattel referenced him in a 2018 Haters roast) was a turn off.

R171 I don't feel that Katya "made a mess". She relapsed, knew she was in trouble and had to get help. So she backed out of the VICE series (that was supposed to surpass the Uhhnnn (sp) series, though frankly it was a comparative snoozer) to go into rehab. But it's true that Trixie has always been very protective of Katya, and her being more concerned about her friend than what may have been a lucrative opportunity speaks volumes. (Happily, it turned out that keeping the however you spell it train was far more lucrative, and creative, and has made both of them quite comfortable)

Where it got messy was when Katya, during her relapse, said not so nice things about Trixie, though from what I understand from mutual interviews, they weren't exactly untrue, which is why it I assume it hurt Trixie even more. In meth truth I guess. Trixie did not have to put any of this in her documentary, but she did (though perhaps not to the extent) and that is admirable. These two seem well past it all now, and better friends for it. Hell, now Trixie is showing up at Katya's house when *she* has an anxiety attack. That's a bit of a script flip.

Trixie holds her shit together pretty tightly, perhaps too tightly, and has said in interviews that she keeps a lot private, and has intimated that the darkness from her childhood is darker than she would ever publicly admit. I don't think she is the therapy type, and of course I could be wrong, but the hyper driven number of business ventures she's determined to succeed in is a bit telling, at least in my own experience. At the rate she was going, pre-pandemic, it could have led to her own unwanted "break from reality". I think the pandemic forced her to slow down and that was a very good thing. She has said herself how surprised she was to enjoy so much quiet time and solitude.

Sorry for the War and Peace post, but this thread prompted me to do some some re-watching/listening to interviews with them tonight, so they've been swirling in my brain

You know, in rewatching the Kandy/Tamisha argument (which remains the highlight of this interminable season), the biggest takeaway I got was Kandy's complete overreaction to being called arrogant. Why couldn't she just own it? A drag queen who is arrogant - big deal, she definitely isn't the first and wouldn't be the last.

GM overpraised AGAIN. From the verging on parody har-har-har interview with Ru and Michelle, to the we’ve seen it all before in her performance (but the judges apparently did not agree. She grew? What?) Ru’s fake crying was the fake cherry on a fake cake I never want to ever see again.) GM did the same thing/character nearly every time in her challenges, and while her lyp-synch wasn’t horrible, it didn't have much "there, there".

Rose of all of them probably “grew” the most. Though perhaps a little to late. That runway look wasn’t very flattering, and her lyp-synch was stiff. Certainly nothing to write home about.

I’m staying out of the Kandy discussion.

Symone just fucking glowed. Her performance was sexy and fun. Her runway look was truly gorgeous. And she put a lot of emotion into the lyp-synch. She has winner written all over her.

But anyone who thinks Gottmik didn't kill the challenge and the runway and bring the charm, is really not being objective. She was nothing much in the lip synch but she's definitely in the top 2 of the competition. Deservedly so.

Roses runway look and hair was awful and very unflattering. His challenge performance and lip sync were great however.

Kandy was funny. Very good in the L U C K Y challenge. That song and production was kinky and sexy. Those back up boys OwweeeeEEE! Symone can't dance but she sure as fuck can shine.

Thanks Jamal Sims. Gorgeous man.

I really thought they were going to send Rose home, then I saw the lip sync. Bitch is talented for a man with a cleft chin, 9 o'clock shadow and 50 yards of bulky ugly tartan.

by Anonymousreply 215Yesterday at 2:27 AM

I was thinking of DataLounge's complaints all season that this is the worst season ever with the worst contestants ever while I watched last night and I was confused by the mismatch of that sentiment and what I was watching.

I am really tired of the song-and-dance sequences, but setting that aside, they all performed better than usual for Drag Race last night. I liked all of them a lot during their short interviews, and I think RuPaul made the right choice in keeping all four. I think they are all very entertaining and likable in very different ways this time.

I rewatched several season four episodes this week and I thought that most of the contestants were dismal. I never really got the adoration for Sharon Needles, but most of her competitors had no charisma and have been forgotten. After watching episodes from season four, everyone last night really shined.

I think at this point the only reason anyone could not be won over by GottMik is transphobia. She really is just a full package and she does have a delightful joy of life and is fun to watch. She doesn't seem deperate not to lose, either. She just seems to be having fun. At this point, gender and sex are irrelevant because she's made the show so much fun. I don't love the name or the makeup, but I love her spirit.

Symone's crying last night--agh! I was blubbering, too. I can only imagine the fear and self-loathing he must have grown up with. I think he had an emotional exorcism last night. And to see that vulnerability come from the "fierce" one who has been so stunning to look at...! I fell in love with him a little bit.

Rosé easily could have won many other seasons. The only think he's got going against him in my opinion is that the other two have such moving personal stories and are so endearing, and the best thing they can say about Rosé is that she's 'a true professional.' That's a real compliment, but it pales compared with 'I fell in love with them.' Still, if Rosé were to win (he won't) I would be happy for him and it would be well deserved.

I like Kandy, too! I know this is not a popular sentiment, but I find Kandy to be endearing. But out of these four, I think Kandy is a clear third runner up through no fault of his own.

I like every one of these finalists a lot and I like that there are no lame feuds and there's no negative drama happening on the show this season. They seem to all support one another.

Symone has great presence, but needs to work on the performance part. I think Mik is naturally talented, and DR has brought that side out more.

I like Drag Race although I am tired of the formula and it's becoming a chore because it is always airing. I happen to like all the top four. I wish the show would bring back some fun challenges that let us see their personalities, like when they were sent into the streets to coerce passersby to do things, or when they had to go dumpster diving for materials to make things. I like those challenges because their personalities come out, they interact with one another throughout the episode instead of writing lyrics on their own and memorizing mechanical movements, and you see the product of their creativity in the end instead of...watching them replicate mechanical movements. I don't get why the show settled on being almost totally about song and dance numbers. But that's it; my complaints are about the production, not about the creative contestants who are doing the best they can. I also may be one of the few who dislikes watching people who play games and sabotage one another and have hysterical fits. I like when they get along and we learn their life stories and they all just want to win by being the best and standing out on their merits. I hope never to see another PhiPhi.

For me, what's been the worst about Season 13 is how the judging has become so manipulated by the producers.

Rosé should have been reamed about the unflattering silhouette of that tartan blanket she was wearing, and that nearly unstyled wig.

Kandy was wearing what appeared to be a raincoat that was not up to the standards of this point in the competition.

They've lost ALL credibility.

I like Rose well enough, but I’ve never been impressed by her makeup, hair, or outfits. Last week’s pocket dress look was the one exception, so maybe she has potential.

I usually don’t really care who wins all that much, but this season it had better be Symone. She is a STAR.

by Anonymousreply 228Yesterday at 6:03 AM

Yeah, I don't get the "producer manipulation" hysterics. It's a television show made for entertainment.

It used to be a campy, tongue-in-cheek television show that was 'manipulated by producers' specifically not to be taken very seriously--remember Ru saying 'And the winner is...WHO CARES?!' Taking itself seriously has created some dangerously obsessive fans.

This is not a governmental election that has been wrongfully manipulated by a political party. It's a trifle of an entertainment program. We're now two decades into reality TV series and I am struck that anyone at this point would not understand that reality TV is not reality. It's storytelling. Producers don't cast people for being ingenius talent; they cast them for being able to play compelling TV characters. (Manipulation!!) They then record thousands of hours of footage and edit the footage to tell stories. They identify certain standout characterisitics or personal stories for each interesting contestan and focus on telling those stories through creative (you'd call this manipulative) editing. (I'd call this storytelling.) The editors and producers of reality TV programs serve the same purpose as writers and directors of fictional stories. The point is to engage and hopefully emotionally move the audience. If you don't get angry at a novelisy or a screenwriter for making you feel emotional and therefore manipulating you, then you should be able to grasp the concept that reality TV does exactly the same thing with zero consequences on your life. Reality TV producers are not public officials, lawmakers, law enforcers or judges. So lighten up.

I was thinking about this the other day and I think it's because that's how the show can market the queens. That's pretty much all they do on the live shows: dance and lipsync. Around season 6/7, the show ditched the idea that this was a show about creative people and focused on what's marketable instead. In a way it helps the queens have a career post-show, but it deprives us watchers from really getting to know the queens' talents. I still enjoy it, but don't connect with the queens (except for Symone) the way I did before season 6.

I have less of a problem with Kandy lately. Since Tina went, and the Mean girls thing seems to be over, she seems to have calmed down a bit. But the amount of time they give her in her confessionals is off the charts, and the critiques of her by the judges don't really make sense. But there is no way she is top 4 material and I will never understand how she was allowed to go this far. Just because Ru likes her? I don't buy it. Anyway, I'm also rooting for Symone, who from the very first episode has been a star.

Symone's two teary moments last night were incredibly moving. Several contestants have broken down like that during judging (Hi, Roxxy!), but I've never felt their raw emotion so deeply before. I wanted to hug her. Then I looked her up on Instagram and saw her 'fierce' photos and was extra impressed that such a vulnerable and insecure person presents such a polished and strong image.

Ru pretty much admitted the reason why she kept Kandy and Mik was for their backstory. That plays to good television. But neither is going to win. Rose and Symone are the serious contenders here. Anyone who’s won has been like a Rose or Symone. I give Rose the edge, though. Bitch.

[quote] But there is no way she is top 4 material and I will never understand how she was allowed to go this far. Just because Ru likes her?

I actually had this same sentiment last night with how RuPaul was speaking to GottMik. When the person playing the role of chief judge and the one person who decides who wins $100,000, it seems like poor judgment to gush so hyperbolically on camera about one contestant before the show is over. And I say that as someone who has been consistently impressed with GottMik's performances and thinks she deserves to win.

It was striking that RuPaul showed such extreme favoritism to GottMik based on GottMik's perceived life struggles (which really have not been shown or discussed much), and then after that Symone gave those gut-wrenching speeches and I could viscerally feel the pain of her upbringing and how much shame she had internalized all her life. It really did make RuPaul's unilateral sympathy feel misdirected.

If Symone and GottMik both win, I would call it a very well-deserved tie and not because GottMik would be a token transgender winner. She is just an excellent performer with a lovable spirit, and Symone is a touching spirit who also epitomizes the notion of a 'fierce queen.' Looking back at the photos of Symone in her runway clothes really is striking. She does look like she is on a high-fashion runway modeling designer clothing.

by Anonymousreply 238Yesterday at 6:16 AM

R237 I had a very hard time understanding Symone's words during her performance and was surprised by that. I expected her to be criticized for it since it has been a criticism of Kandy all season. Am I the only one who heard Symone mumble her way through her part of the song?

Also, thoughts on "Lucky"? It's new and so it will take time to get used to. I didn't like the sound at first but then I did appreciate how different it is to her other music as it went on. The show has been a great vehicle for making us all so familiar with RuPaul's music that it's hard not to enjoy it even though I never would listen to almost any of it otherwise.

by Anonymousreply 239Yesterday at 6:20 AM

Symone has it. That LSFYL was all about her face and emotion- it also helps that she has Gigi's mom making her clothing- that gown was stunning.. Kandy was flailing around with that weird Judy Jetson outfit. I will admit the GottMik is good, but it so very calculated to me. Rosé desperately needs a glow up and some style editing-she reminds me of Brooke Lynn Heights, who is another ex-performer perfectionist.

by Anonymousreply 244Yesterday at 6:31 AM

Don't you think GottMik *has* to have an unusual, not-pretty look as a transgender man playing a woman? If he put on makeup to look pretty, then the people who are already inclined to hate him just for being there would cry foul and say he's just a pretty woman pretending to be a man and doesn't deserve to win. So he compensates with the severe mime-by-way-of-Kim-Chi makeup to transform into something else.

I never resented or disliked Mik for being trans but I was *really* thrown by the idea of why a person who hormonally and surgically altered their body because they felt they were the wrong sex would then choose to perform as the sex they went to such great extremes to get away from. Now, I've been won over and I do agree that throwing gender into the blender can be interesting. As a young person treated like shit in the 80s and 90s for being gay, all I was desperate for was for people to at least recognize me as a human being, and I hoped people could appreciate my creativity, which was part of who I am and not tied to sexuality. Seeing this young person's creativity and wit expressed all season has made me just see him as an interesting person, kind of without any gender. I'm not trying to have sex with him and so the organs are totally irrelevant.

Rosé's critiques last night were all "professional" and "showed up ready to work." Rather faint praise compared to the others. There's no way Ru's putting the crown on her unless the fan response over the next two weeks is enormous, and I don't think that's gonna happen.

by Anonymousreply 248Yesterday at 7:30 AM

I also see Symone winning because Symone is "iconic"--literally a visual embodiment of successful drag, whereas Mik and Rosé are more entertaining to watch and would be ideally suited for a do-over in an All Stars season. Mixing them in with Gigi, Heidi, Crystal, Jan, Vanjie and other standout personalities would make for a killer All Stars season if the production doesn't fuck it up with a bad concept like teams, etc.

A female female impersonator looks most like a female, save for her Juggalo make up. Groundbreaking.

by Anonymousreply 250Yesterday at 7:43 AM

Rosé is technically ace and proficient at all of the performative aspects of drag, but when it comes to actually being in drag, her looks and make-up really aren't that special. She just looks like someone in a costume and the looks themselves haven't been all that clever or innovative.

Symone's drag seems more fully realized and has a point of view and a sense of humor. She's really one of the best that's been on this show, but it feels a bit more stealth and understated when compared to a squeaky wheel like Kandy who undeservedly sucks up a lot of the oxygen. Symone for the win full stop!

GotMik is supremely talented and a solid runner-up.

by Anonymousreply 251Yesterday at 7:52 AM

Gottmik might improve.. She's amazing with makeup but how she's employing could show there's a few kinks to work out still and room to grow.

Symone just has “it” in spades. I think she should win, but part of me feels it would be very cool to watch her go up against Gigi in all-stars. Mik has had a terrific season and she’s like “make a wish kid at Disneyland” level happy to be there - the real Miss Congeniality of the season and I’m sure WOW has plans for her be a working member of the firm after this.

The song wasn't bad. Haven't been watching that long.. are there more musical numbers than before?

by Anonymousreply 254Yesterday at 8:11 AM

Yes, R254, but you need to go back a number of seasons to get to that era. From the beginning and I guess about halfway through the run, the show was different.

It used to be one hour long, eventually was extended to 90 minutes and now it's a bloated 120, counting the last half hour, which used to be a separate show.

The budget has grown and as it has grown, the show has added a lot more song-and-dance performances.

Originally, Drag Race was a parody of America's Next Top Model and Project Runway. The whole thing was really a running joke, but it was one that the contestants took seriously because most of them seemed to have been practically homeless and there was a lot of money on the line. The show really emphasized personal stories, Ru spending time with them as a cheerleader/Oprah-esque life coach, and creative challenges.

Early on, there were a couple of musical numbers per season. There were also a lot of modeling challenges and tons of improv ranging from mock talk show interviews to going out onto Hollywood Boulevard in full drag during the daytime and asking people with no context to spray whipped cream down their pants and getting points for being persuasive. So again, the point was not to consistently tick off boxes of qualifications as they do now, or to be Vegas-ready dancers and singers, but to showcase personality, creativity and to have fun.

It didn't always feel like it had a clear direction, either. The challenges were kind of haphazard and the show was messy all around, which also made it more fun to watch. Because in the end, it was just entertainment and a way to showcase how disenfranchised people can thrive on a shoestring budget and excel at being creative.

There were a lot of contestants with tragic life stories, from drug addictions and friends lost to ODs to people being rejected or even abandoned by their parents. Or, like Jinkx Monsoon and ChiChi Davenport, some just grew up destitute and were endearing. That's a big reason why a lot of people disliked Gigi: She was multitalented, but she wasn't self-invented. She had clearly studied Drag Race and engineered herself to check off all the boxes on a show that used to award people who surprised, not who melted into a premade mold.

Well R259 he said that to "Ms. Moose" after she confessed all her vulnerabilities and said how insecure she is. It's not really like RuPaul said, "Hey, big girl, do yourself a favor and avoid social media" with no context.

RuPaul does that himself, if you haven't noticed. He posts but doesn't interact, and last year he suddenly deleted all his content and left social media for many months, only resuming again recently. He gets a lot of hate and he has talked a lot about his depression. I'm sure it really gets to him.

I don't understand the online culture of spreading hatred. I really don't get it. Why does a majority of people get off on making any random person feel bad about themselves?

by Anonymousreply 268a day ago

I think the backlash towards Kandy wouldn't be this extreme if it wasn't so obvious what Ru and the Powers That Be were doing all season. She justifiably ended up in the bottom two after the musical challenge and justifiably lost the lip sync against Symone. There was no reason for her to be saved other than the obvious fact that she was earmarked to go all the way to the end. If her placement was indicative of her actual talent, there wouldn't be a problem.

I'll probably rewatch Symone's emotional speech, but I've just become so over the contestants crying on camera that unfortunately, even when it is genuine and not a cheap ploy to show "vulnerability", I instinctively tune out. Maybe if they didn't overdo it by someone crying or breaking down every other week (or in this case, multiple times in a single show), the effects wouldn't have been so diluted. I know I'm in the minority on this, but I felt that Ru's fake waterworks when speaking to Gottmik on the runway cheapened Symone's real tears which followed only minutes later.

I don't think the show would do another double win after how controversial it was for All Stars 4. My brain tells me Gottmik will win, but my heart/gut really wants Symone to take the crown.

r309, you're projecting, hon. As usual. You calling anyone "nuts" is laughable considering you're the one calling people racists and homophobic names. You're bitter cause I call you out, cunt! Hee!

Could someone please post the link to Instagram where one can see this tally of likes people are referring to?

Thanks!

by Anonymousreply 31118 hours ago

R311 There's no tally and there are no votes. The Drag Race account posted "Team Symone," etc. photos on Instagram and people have liked them at different amounts, and people here are interpreting the numbers of likes as some sort of authoritative account of who deserves to win. But they're not votes, officially.

Thanks r312...I figured it was something like that.

It had that scent of figment of the imagination..

by Anonymousreply 31317 hours ago

No, but the YouTube retweets put out by Drag Race are official. Asks simply who are you rooting for. Retweet and use the hashtag across platforms. Symone has a slight lead over GottMik. #TeamSymone.

It doesn't really matter though. They have more complex & crude algorithms than Twitter and Insta. Sometimes, when it's live, Ru just decides at the last minute. Jaida pulled that win out from Gigi and Crystal Method in the finale last year. THREE lips syncs they produced themselves from home. The last one LIVE.

That bodes well for both Symone and GottMik though. Like who else it gonna be?

^^^^ Racist homophobic bipolar mental case.

by Anonymousreply 31517 hours ago

You're the racist R315. Thousands of your posts here prove that. It's not a joke, just a fact. Mental case is an unkind and imprecise label - but try it on and see how it fits. Feels good, I bet.

by Anonymousreply 31617 hours ago

Symone is the only one who has "it," can grow, and is amazing in lip synchs, fashion and giving face.

Other than that, they have one community-theater-queen mediocrity, one loudmouth mess and one self-absorbed transboy who remains built like a girl, performs like a girl, wears whiteface and has wealth behind his nascent career.

No r316 aka racist homophonic bipolar mental case YOU ARE, dear. Put r316 on ignore and read all the racist and homophobic shit. Put me on ignore and there's nothing but calling YOU out on your shit. Be pissed, hon. I will always call you out. Hee!

Beautifully, and succinctly stated r317

Again, r316/bipolar mental case you're projecting. Laughable statement above coming from someone of your ilk. You schooling anyone is a joke!

I spent most of my time rolling my eyes during this episode. From Mikk and her over exaggerated body convulsions and hysterical laughter to Kandy and her indecipherable bullshit, this was the most boring and predictable episode of the season.

Whaaa???!!! All four are going through to the finale?! Oh, my God! What an incredible shock!

I just hope Symone wins.

GottMik wore a lot of tit and hip padding to look like a pinup Girl in the LUCKY number. I thought he looked great! And he probably hated it a bit. "She" still has pretty legs but that cinched waist and curvy hip pads and nice built in bra titties were pure Drag Queen. She's a very well known makeup artist. The "kabuki" look is not to disguise that he was born a woman. It was signature makeup when he was still a girl. I think Gottmik looks like a feminine gay boy out of drag. Nice jaw. Implants. But very well done. I didn't like the rule change and am still confused by the female to male to drag queen transformation, but she's was given no advantage. Because why? Her personality is the ADVANTAGE. The fact that she won Snatch Game and the Ball Challenge is a fact....boy is funny too. If he's imitating a gay boy drag race contestant she's doing a pretty good job!

Have a look at Jaida in Justify My Love in the Madonna challenge. That is a skinny ass straight up and down black man who looks like a hot woman in lingerie. Tiny waist, curvy hips and long sexy legs in sheer black hosiery. Not one silicone injection. Just drag artistry and illusion.

Gottmik is a right interesting contestant. And bound to be a fan favorite, based on her personality and joy and humor. And the Lewks. I don't love her makeup style, but she's not a loser like Trixie Martell. Mik is an artist. She can do anything if she wants to. He doesn't need a glow up, just the confidence to be themself. I think we'll see a lot of different things from Mik, even in the finale.

He knows he is loved now. He doesn't have to be just one thing. Or the other thing.

Jesus fucking Christ, I just rewatched the part where Ru fucking debases herself by bawling over GottMik. It's worse the second time around. It was both impossible to buy (though I could see how much of her audience might), and it was totally unfair to the other queens.

Look, Ru, you didn't want bio women on the show, and though many agreed with you, you also got a lot of heat. So you capitulated to the powers at WoW, and the trans army, in hopes of getting another Emmy that you used to swear you didn't care about. Don't think your own little disingenuous acting challenge there at the judge's table makes up for anything or rewrites your history. Remember Ru, you can do a lot of things, but acting sure isn't one of them.

Seeing that was a total embarrassment, and I felt horrible for the other queens, especially Symone.

by Anonymousreply 32316 hours ago

I agree Winston. Ru's fake crying was sickening and hypocritical and embarrassing. If people need to be told that Symone's tears were real, they're in real trouble. Most of the crying on Drag Race is fake and some others are questionable Alaska. I love Symone, he couldn't stop it. That's when it's real. His heart was on full display. It's not tragic, just real. Painful.

Ru is an ASS. We've watched him go from iconoclastic subversive counter culture GAY icon to a grovelling face pulled lying forgetful fracking award humping whore. Of course bio women were not allowed. FISH was never a nice term to real women. Notice how it's not used this season? And then there is you've got shemale for crossdressers or Tranny realness for the ladyboys on the corner. All this was instantly understood and sent up. Because it exists in life. Ok, some of the terminology is not cool in our new reality. But passable "trans" ladyboys still redirect the paid action to oral only. Some frotting.

SO, don't fucking cry about how PROUD you are RuPaul when you blocked so many male to female trans people from having their hormones or their voice, if they wanted to be on your show. So yes, Gottmik is the first. Why did it have to be a woman who cut her breasts off to pretend to be a gay man who does female illusion. Gottmik does have crushes on guys too. Licking her lips after the Pit Crew and Jamal Sims. (me too) So s/he's perhaps the first straight woman trans male gay drag queen?

And that creepy hypocrite RuPaul cries in pride? PUKE. He should not read the comments. The show is popular. He is not.

R323, I agree girl...I get the point of it all but, it seems so disingenuous...

r324 = BPMC racist homophobe

by Anonymousreply 32613 hours ago

I 100% think Symone should win. If she doesn't? I'll actually be pissed.

Rose is fine. A good performer.

Gottmik has totally won me over. Do I think it's weird that she's a bio woman? Yeah. But that's my issue. She seems really fun. And her looks are just fantastic. I'm now a fan.

Now that fourth finalist? I don't know her.
