Bringing my post over from the dregs of the Season 13 thread now that we have a home for non season specific chat.
I guess there was a falling out between Trixie and Kennedy Davenport.
Kennedy gives her side of the story.
I didn't know anything about this.
I have since watched the whole video and I'm more intrigued than ever. I hope other folks bring their posts over here, or dear reader, you can go back over there to read them. Some good insight.
I believe Kennedy, and this is bringing up some stuff about Trixie that has kind of bugged me from time to time over the years. I watched Moving Parts (it was "eh') and I don't think drugs was the only reason Trixie and Katya had issues around that time and around Trixie's run on All Stars. I think that now they are deep in their friendship, they will likely never let the whole story come out. But if in wine, truth, (whatever the meth equivalent of that may be) and apparently some of the things that Katya had to say apparently hit pretty close to home to Trixie. I think Trixie may have gotten a bit high handed/big headed with Katya, and Katya wasn't having it.
Trixie can play fake nice for the 14 year olds, but, damn she can be pretty cunty to her friends and what family she's got left. Katya has made it clear over the years that she doesn't play the fake nice game and has zero patience for it.
I'm wondering if something similar went down between them that came out of left field to Katya as it did to Kennedy.I think Katya's relapse was triggered by Trixie treating what Katya thought of as a friendship as more of a business relationship--it was becoming The Trixie Show. I think they really are tremendously close these days, but I always catch myself giving Trixie a bit of side eye every so often, and this clip from Kennedy confirms some of my suspicions about her.

r14 We met Manilla in Disneyland. We were riding the train to Haunted Mansion and she was on it with her now husband. As we got off the train he was next to me and I said "Is your name Karl with a K?" and he smiled and said Yes. I said "I thought you should have won," and he laughed and said I was very kind. He offered to take picture with us an even laughed while I could not get my camera to work on my phone. We ended up in line right behind him which probably weirded him out but I ended up talking to her husband, he was really nice too. He could have been a dick and got out of line to get away from us but he was really nice, even texted my friend for me who is a RPDR nut.

It seems like every other queen has a podcast out now.
I've started to listen to Sibling Rivalry, Bob the Drag Queen's and Monet X Change's podcast now and then, and it's much funnier than I expected. If you dislike either of them, I can't imagine that you'd like their podcast, but man... the way Bob comes after Monet sometimes really makes me laugh. I've also enjoyed a few episodes of Lady Bunny's and Monet's podcast, too.
I tried to give Bianca's podcast a few listens. I respect Bianca as a queen and what she's achieved, but I just find her insult comic drag persona a bit grating sometimes.
Jinkx also has a new podcast.

I hope the rumors that they aren’t getting renewed for a third season are not true. Maybe Pangina going on IAS will generate some interest. I heard she has auditioned for past DRUS seasons too.

R64, this Kennedy vs. Trixie drama is so stupid. Kennedy had a rotten attitude and rude and unpleasant from the moment she arrived on season seven until the moment she left on All Stars. Trixie previously revealed that Kennedy had said fucked up shit to her.
Of course, Trixie is in heat because she’s successful and the fans are automatically taking Kennedy’s side because she’s black and making herself out to be a victim. So tired of hearing about this utterly uninteresting queen. What exactly does she do? High kicks? So has almost every queen who has appeared since then.

This is why I like Katya so much more than Trixie, though the two of them together are a good blend. Katya does not pander, and Trixie does. We have Trixie to blame for a huge influx of these 14 year olds that I would like to see shot into space.
When you pander you pay the price. I don't know many queens who don't have a lot of respect for Katya, but for all of her business acumen and success, give Trixie the side-eye. I do agree that so much of these arguments/infighting are ridiculous though. Keep them private. I watched an IG live with Bianca and Adore last night where among many things (they have so much fun together) they addressed the latest Tamisha drama, and Bianca had some choice words for both of them about shutting the fuck up.

I find it very interesting that Trixie considers herself a musician and Katya believes she’s this great abstract performance artist. The truth is that the two of them are natural comedians and not very good at their chosen vocations. I always thought that was an interesting contradiction.
I watched Katya’s performance art stand-up show and it was unbelievably bad. Lots of weirdness that meant nothing and dragged on forever.

On another note, Peppermint recently confirmed that she was the one who was supposed to be eliminated just before the finale in Season 9, but they filmed alternate endings including one where no one got eliminated and all four move onto the finale, and that's the one the producers ended up choosing.

Nina Bonina Brown is nuts. Then, now and forever. What a waste of review time. And time.
Pandora is not funny, a hundred years old and not liked at all by any of the other queens. None of them. He's a pissy sad ANCIENT queen who wears Hello Dolly costumes.
Jiggly is fun, skinny and NOW a girl. But talentless. Transphobes Unite! Juliette Lewis's imitation of Jiggly will always be better than anything Jiggly can do. And Willams fake admiration of Jiggly was always just like that. Fake.
Yara was amazing in her looks and always fun to watch - the most amazing creature and cute guy. Yara had the most subtle and best use of silicone the show has ever displayed. Just a little bit in those thighs and ASS and LIPS. Just a bit. Boy in a bikini. Nobody did it better than Yara.

I love Ginger R155. That's a full service Drag Queen. The powers that be took away the crown from her in Season 7. Because that was the season that things turned on DR. I liked Violet to be honest. But that was Ginger's crown to lose. And Kennedy deserved the other final 3 spot over......Pearl?
Ginger performed in Season 7. We saw it. She was great in most everything but high fashion challenges. But that TOAD can look really middle aged like a pretty WOMAN! And can sing and act and host and tell jokes and do it all. People will say it's time for a big girl to win. Ginger deserved to win her own season, and so did Eureka. Maybe. Aquaria was pretty great, but Eureka won lots of mini and main challenges and definitely the finale lip syncs. One of them is going to take it, because.....it's time for a "big" girl to win. Ginger or Eureka. Bring it on. They are both great talents. Far more talented than Trixie or BoB or Violet or Yvie. Give one of them the damn crown.

I'd like to see Pandora again, but if it's not on the WOW app, I'm not watching. The last regular US season was blah, the Down Under season is hard to watch, I'm in Drag Race overkillville, and making me pay for a whole streaming network on top of all the ones I pay for is one step too far. Drag Race has gone from fun, strange entertainment to an assembly line production that hops networks and seems to be used as bait to move eyes from one network to others. They tried this premium thing with the last All Stars on Showtime and got a backlash and bailed out and now they're doing it again? Bah. I might have done it had the franchise not oversaturated itself, but as of now, there may as well be a whole RPDR cable network that airs nothing but Drag Race. It's crazy how many seasons there are and how they never stop coming. And how the whole series (except UK thanks to its small budget) has eliminated a lot of the creativity in favor of endless memorized-choreography pageant dances.

R223, you're take is limited. Not wrong, just not fully right.
Of course the "most palatable" AKA "the most relatable" queen is selected, once the show's other rubrics are applied (flexibility, "fit and contrasts" with recent winners, pluses and likely benefits to Ru-World, etc.)
Shangela is respected and liked, but isn't available to play the game the way Trixie has been. Shangela makes money in other ways that would clash with WOW's contracts. Manila is respected but lacks the "top tier" quality they go for. Neither Shangela nor Manila test particularly well, and neither has a brand that works well with WOW. Shangela comes across as a humorless hustler and Manila, even though Menstrual Gate was unfortunate for her, lacks consistent good judgment. It's not "scandal" that does people in. Sharon being a druggy cunt fit her well-fitting brand. Manila, ultimately, is boring, and so is Shangela. It's always the same.

R230, I meant she should’ve won the All Star season. As far as he’s not being a comedian, well, I won’t argue against that but I will say compared to her All Star sisters she was the funniest (which I guess says something about the season).
Monet was too serious and Trinity was cringy at times and funny at others. I did like Monique but I think her being a wildcard didn’t work with the show. Monet and Trixie do seem like the types who would kiss as much producer ass as they can whereas Monique probably wouldn’t keep her mouth shut about how the show works.
And Trixie did not deserve to win her season at all. Her being successful out of the show does not mean she should’ve won. She literally floundered at the challenges. By that logic let’s just make the winner whoever has the most social media followers instead. Plastique Tiara would win every All Star season...

^What a bunch of self confirmatory nonsense.^ The fans were outraged that Shangela didn't win and Manila is probably the most high tier assumed winner to ever be eliminated early by All Star fuckery. That inflated lipped skinny flat chested boy with size 14 feet kicked Manilla off? And she was not let back on somehow? Her looks were stunning and campy and fashion and beautiful AND Drag. In all three of her seasons. She won acting and comedy challenges. Was a great partner to Latrice. Manila is a tall good looking guy who made all his own drag. And it was ALWAYS good. Head to toe. Coy, cute, in on the joke but always presenting the fantasy. Sexy and versatile. Detailed. Gorgeous makeup and truly creative visual ideas. Campy but very polished. Pretty whenever he chose to be. A brand with a personal style. Manila is probably the iconic representative of what the show was about for the first 10 years. Raja has never NOT looked like a MAN and Sharon Needles was a mistake.
Shangela is always mentioned as the greatest robbery of Drag Race. Her victory in All STARS 3 was CLEAR to even her detractors.

So, R238. Can't one be critical of something/someone they are also a fan of, or once were? These guys do drag, they should be able to take a little criticism. They also used to have senses of humor, as did their fans.

R237 is a nutjob who thinks he runs these threads. Manilla did have a chance to cut a top tier queen who otherwise performed well - and she did not. Because that's not fair play. By your reasoning R237 Alaska would have been eliminated when SHE was in the bottom for her terrible makeover challenge. But she offered $10,000 cash on camera to her alliance. Voila, she made it! And later was crowned the winner. As was the show's plan.
It's a game and all is fair? Except when they don't want you to go. Then they find a way to bring you back. Kennedy got more votes from the other queens than Trixie did to win All Stars 3. Who did Ru crown? Gross untalented undeserving Trixie who shone in nothing. Cuz Kennedy lost that final LSFYL against Trixie? Hahahahaha. No, she didn't. Not on this planet .

Absolutely. But it just seems that for some people the show doesn't bring them any joy any more. Maybe they get joy from hate watching. For me, I think the biggest issue for many is that they've aged out of the show and take it out on these current queens who have chosen to adapt to this Disneyland, cleaned up, woke and politically correct everybody loves everybody drag that appeals to middle American. I think some of you are reacting to the loss of something that was fun and uniquely gay to the mainstream by throwing serious hate on people who are just looking to build careers by way of a highly edited and scripted reality competition show.

R236 it’s a bogus top 3 placement (not top 2, they only crowned Aquaria, we don’t know how either her or Kameron placed). She was already on the show one time and had all that insight when she went back, totally unfair. She’s big fat and loud, and that is what they casted for on her HBO show.
R238 it does seem like that and I’m contributing to the negativity, but this is a weak cast. Hoping some of the older season queens show out. To keep it more positive, looking forward to some knucking and bucking by Akeria and Trinity.

Aquaria's a sexy guy. Eureka absolutely placed 2nd, because she beat Aquaria so securely in the lip sync that Ru and producers had to call it a tie. ON The FINALE. In a lip sync for your life. It was fuckery.
That said, I think Aquaria is very talented, funny and charming. The best of the no titties Drag Queens and he looks great in a jock strap too. As a guy or in drag - always turning lewks.

R236 Well, Aquaria fell down flat of her face during her lipsync with Eureka but the shos edited it out. She should have lost and then Eureka would have and should have won.
I personally like Eureka. She is the most polished big girl on the show. Ginger was more talented but had ugly looks, snd Latrice is lovable but most of her drag comes acoustic as messy, unfinished and all the same.

R226 Widow is claiming now that the man (she won’t say if they were dating) came to her home uninvited and wouldn’t leave, so she was “standing her ground”. Not sure I buy that, but I will withhold judgment.
Her fans are delusional, however. They have already started a petition to get her released, are claiming she was arrested for being black, and are trying to get AOC involved for some reason.
After the incident, Widow was on her live, saying how she “beat up some lil white boy” who tried to disrespect her. She then claimed that her home bar, who kicked her out, was racist. I was a bit sympathetic, seeing as how she was arrested at her going away party, but her playing the race card for beating up a “white boy” ends it for me.

As far as I'm concerned, Manila, Jujubee and Raven are true stars who don't need to win regular or All Stars seasons. Something about each one of them has much heftier star power than almost any of the others in the run of the series. They've got tons of charisma and I've forgotten 90 percent of contestants but I remember all of them clearly from all the way back to the beginning of the series.
I totally disagree with the Bob basher above, though. Bob has "it." I felt like he was the clear winner from the beginning and throughout his season with no one else coming close. As a female impersonator, no, he's a "he," but it really doesn't matter when someone's presence is as commanding as Bob's is. He's like Jujubee in that way. During their seasons, I just wanted more of them and less of the others.

I believe, based on absolutely nothing but my own cracked speculation, that All Stars is almost always negotiated. I don't believe for a second that they don't know who's going when, or that they didn't know that Bendela wasn't leaving or that Shangela wasn't going to win.

R246, to a degree I agree. I do think they leave room for adaptation though. This started happening back in season 4 when it seemed the season was set up for Chad but Sharon’s popularity managed to change things. Then all of a sudden All Stars 1 was rushed just to get her the crown. You also see this happen with Monet being added as a second winner in order to make up against negative deserved backlash over the Shangela situation.
|by Anonymous||reply 257||06/02/2021|
Yeah, they clearly have an idea of who they want to eliminate along the way, but they take a break between the season and the finale to measure popularity and buzz among viewers. They choose the most popular ones to win, obviously, because that's who they invest their money in and want to hook into contract obligations so that they can skim profits off their sales.

I have a hard time believing that Chad was originally slated to win. The first challenge was an apocalypse challenge and the judge was Elvira. No way that wasn’t intended for Shannon to thrive in. And even the song choice of Glamazon is suitable for Shannon’s style.
I am not sure if queens are chosen to win, but they definitely plan at least some challenges with certain Queens in mind. Latrice in the Large Marge skit was clearly intended for her to get to use her prison story. Yvie was given the Monster Ball, although she fucked it up, the first stand up challenge was when Bianca was on, and Shade the Rusical was intended for Adore and Courtney. They also put Robbie in the bottom two for the Rollar Skate lip-sync so she could do it even though he was not the worse that episode, and what a coincidence that on the episode they did Micky (In Spanish) the bottom two queens were Spanish speakers.

R263, but Sharon was a nobody back then. Meanwhile Chad was supposed to be the legend. Season 4 is also when they started allowing fan votes in the finals and it was the online fandom that developed that was cheering for Sharon. Sharon was one of the first queens that blew up in social media as her season aired. Everyone back then was also saying the sudden rushed All Stars season was to make up for Sharon winning over Chad due to Sharon’s surprising rise in social media.

Sharon fucked up more than her face. Admittedly, I am not her biggest fan but I'm glad she won her season. Needles is a hopeless drunk who is on and off drugs. Meth, coke, and downers. Her racist comments and the lack of professionalism on tours hurt and then pretty much stopped her momentum. She's been quite vocal in her jealousy of the money and access and fame that queens from later seasons achieved. Sharon's a mess. And has been for a long time. A bad liver and a dark heart.
Alaska is far from poor. She was extremely successful for quite a few years. But she doesn't have anything new to offer. She's as tedious as her vocal inflections and her talent is really slender. Had a good run near the top. She'll be alright.

Jeremi quit drag. That's not news. He was a little prick who had the first? and best double save with It's Raining Men with Sharon Needles. There have been many better lip syncs but that one stood out at the time. I'm not a fan of Sharon Needles weak wrists and turned down mouth postures, but she was great in that one moment. Dark hair and red lips. Sharon was a small town meth head who became a two year sensation. Her drag and face got worse with success and the small amount of talent she had turned out to just be a horror movie rebellion. She still makes a lot of money a night - but only in the two weeks around Halloween.
Phi Phi. Simpler times, ha. Phi Phi would be one of the first 5 to go now, respectable. She was quite good in All Stars 2. They all were. Sharon is something worse than an early All Stars OUT - she's a complete anachronism. There's nothing shocking about her and never was. A blood capsule? I like her more than this sounds. But when a self proclaimed freak immediately gets so much cosmetic surgery, she lost me. Phi Phi was quite respected by other drag queens - he's a cute bitch who went to jail too but still turned out 365 very different Instagram drag looks in one year.
Season 10 had that great opening episode - where all the new contestants do a freak runway in front of just about every important or unexpected contestant of all time. More than you can count. Sharon was there. That was cool.

R270 I liked Needles on the show far more than in real life. She had a great edit and was a very charismatic underdog. However she isnt as charismatic out of drag, and tries too hard to be edgy.

Can someone explain what you love about Sharon Needles besides the punny name?
I started watching Drag Race the season after Sharon won and so I wasn't caught up in the zeitgeist of that season. I enjoyed the show and went back and watched all prior seasons. Of them, Sharon's season was my least favorite and it remains one of my least favorites to this day. The whole cast overall wasn't as outstanding as in many other seasons and Sharon had the gothy gimmick going with white contact lenses, etc., but I was never that impressed with either her performances or her costumes. And she wasn't that likable, either.
I don't understand why people consider Sharon one of the best.
I've rewatched all the old seasons many times—Drag Race is one of those shows I sometimes turn on just for background noise—and I usually end up turning off that season's episodes because they just don't stand up to many of the rest. People here complain about later seasons like the most recent one, and to me Sharon's is in league with those, and she's not the one shining thing about it.

Sharon’s style was very good at the time and it also broke up the pageant girl domination the drag world knew back then. So she was considered the future and PhiPhi just made her seem sympathetic too. She was but she didn’t take advantage of it properly and I think she”s cancelled now because of drama that came out w a white teen girl I believe.

R280 You had to be there. She really was different than anything the show had before. Raja was kind of punk and fashion forward, but Sharon really opened the door for other types of drag on the show. Also, there were not any white winners yet so there was an additional dynamic there.
Season 4 is still one of my favorites, but 3 was the best.

I recently rewatched season 4 and really loved it. To me, it felt like a product of peak reality TV at the time: a clear villain, a clear underdog, big fights, big drama, big personalities. Sharon’s win felt very special, fresh, and unexpected. As mentioned above, she has some very serious addiction issues and is now truly a mess in every sense of the word. I listen to the Race Chaser podcast with Alaska and Alaska said she paid for Sharon’s ticket to Los Angeles to be on their show because Sharon couldn’t afford it. Ultimately winning the show was a curse for her in the long run.

As R281 mentioned, about a year ago Sharon got exposed online by an unstable fangurl named Annecy whom Sharon had originally befriended on a Drag Race cruise not long after she won S4. Annecy, who made a name for herself blogging about RPDR on Tumblr, was 15 when they met.
She claimed they did drugs together and that she told a horrified Michelle Visage about it during the cruise. She also said that Sharon sexually harassed her—grabbed her boobs, flashed his dick, asked her prying questions about her sex life—and encouraged her to self-harm and attempt suicide. After the drama hit Twitter and Reddit, Aquaria publicly cut ties with Sharon, who was her drag mom.

Shangela was clearly there to play her role in Season 3; in fact it wouldn't surprise me to hear some sort of confirmation that the producers actively encouraged her to be a shit-stirrer. Raja would admit in the final Untucked of the season that Shangela just knew what buttons to push - and thank goodness, because if it wasn't for Shangela, Season 3 would have been thirteen or so straight episodes of everyone, especially the judges, fawning over everything Raja did.
Season 4, despite the quality of queens not matching the innovative challenges (as opposed to Season 7 where the inverse was true), was really instrumental in making the show move from niche to mainstream. However, Season 3 definitely helped nudge it in that direction. There isn't going to be another season like it, with the first returning queen from a past season, first double shantay, first returning queen from the same season (the last two being wasted on talentless Carmen "weesh nose" Carrera, but whatever), clique rivalries, fights - both verbal and physical, several stressful design challenges, "who should go home" being asked in three separate episodes - it was a marathon of a season but not in a tedious way, unlike Season 13.

She did. She tried. She was like all the skinny fashion queens—Aquaria, Gigi, Violet—and had a moment in the spotlight right after her season.
She capitalized on it and was cast on NBC's live "Rent" production, which was doomed and terrible. Her performance was not good. It was kind of sad and embarrassing to watch. She blamed it on the lead actor hurting himself, resulting in NBC airing a recorded rehearsal instead of the planned live show, and she admitted that she didn't give her best performance because she was saving it for show night—which theatre actors know not to do.
Her failure was so spectacular that people wrote her off as a reality show contestant and nothing more. She blew her big chance, unfortunately. She was repeatedly roasted for it on All Stars and you could tell that it hurt her to hear it. She admitted on All Stars that she wasn't educated/trained/competent to give the kind of performance she was supposed to have given.
I ended up hating Simon Cowell because he was gratuitously mean after developing his onscreen persona, but at the beginning of Idol, he really was doing contesants a favor. He criticized their abilities and their appearances in harsh ways but also separated them as people from the objectifying criticisms and he told them, kindly, that his onscreen comments may sound mean but they are only one person's opinion and they are representative of what they will hear from everyone in their industry once they make it; if they can't handle his criticism, then they will not be able to weather working in the music industry, where people have to look a certain way, sound a certain way, be extremely talented and experienced enough to weather storms and remain professional when dealing with businesspeople if not audiences. Keep smiling and do your job even when being told you're a fat ugly pig who can't sing as well as the chick who is the new It Girl—and say thank you. That's the reality of the business.
Tori Amos talked a lot about Idol-type shows and YouTube stars when they started becoming famous because she was worried for both the industry and for them as people. She started playing piano and singing in bars and hotels at age 12 and didn't stop until well into her record deals. She plays dingy clubs in L.A. for years and was raped by a fan. She was treated like scum by drunk and drugged people before she was famous and she learned over time how seedy and bad the industry is and she learned to battle people and stand her ground—and then the pressure of being in demand hit, and she was derided by music critics for being too avant garde, but she was confident in her talent and she had developed a thick skin. She said it's dangerous of the music industry to discover teen talents with zero public experience on TV or YouTube because being 'a meteor' causes emotional harm to people. Kate Bush was identified as a young genius and given a record deal, but also given years to develop her music, her style and to study all kinds of performing art before launching her first record at 19. She was prepared and professional and has remained stable throughout her career.
Valentina was not ready. She looks good on TV but she never cultivated the performance skills or the professional experience someone needs to establish themselves as a lasting talent in the public eye. This is why people like Chad and Bianca stand apart from almost everyone else on the show: they've been at it for so long that performing and dealing with idiots is second nature to them and they aren't fazed by insecure peers or critics. People like Alaska and countless others have embarrassing meltdowns because everything seems so high stakes to them.

Valentina also developed a reputation among club owners for diva antics right after S9. One story that blew up the RPDR subreddits claimed that her performance rider specified Champagne and bowls of red M&M's.

Valentina got fat and was rude. Tori Amos got fat, had a head transplant and was always rude. She came across as an evil witch narrator in the Kevyn Aucoin Doc. Kelly Clarkson got fat and is more beloved than ever and more talented than most all other singers in the game. TWENTY years after winning a reality show. She's still grateful to Simon Cowell. But she hates Clive Davis.
Valentina and Alyssa Edwards both take a long time to get ready, are always late and keep the other queens waiting for hours on tours.......DIVAS. So is Shangela, but she works alone honey. The difference is that Valentina is a talentless BITCH. FAT!!

R317 When did Alaska have an embarrassing meltdown? Do you just mean her tantrum when she was on All Stars 2, or did she have another meltdown I'm not aware of? I can't remember one!
She seems quite beloved by the "fandom," so I'm curious about that.

What people don't understand about riders is that they throw in ridiculous things in there to see if the production is really reading and providing- it's crucial for some bands as far as equipment and safety goes, but now it's par for the course for all riders.
And I'll say that it should have been Adore in the Rent Live! instead of Valentina.

R323. Alaska had a much bigger and mean spirited meltdown when Jinkx was declared the winner of Season 5. Not on the broadcast, but in the bar where she, Roxxy and Jinkx were watching the finale. It lasted more than a minute. Or an hour. Ha.
Alaska admits that she didn't handle it well, but Jinkx tells the story much better. And more often.😝🥇
|by Anonymous||reply 325||06/05/2021|
Adore is criminally underutilized. Rent would have been perfect. She had to kick her cousin who was her manager to the curb, hopefully that will help get some gigs flowing now that COVID is loosening up. (No Family Member Managers EVAH!) Looking great, quit the booze, still sharp and funny and hanging out with Bianca constantly. They are really fun together. Bianca is a good big brother influence, though she'd likely rather die than admit that.
Their latest Instagram Live. It gets glitchy but worth seeing them laugh it up.

Rent was BAD. Adore may have lucked out by losing the role to Valentina. She became a joke. The whole production was poor, so Adore would have suffered, too. Not a single person from that show benefited from it aside from the paycheck.

|by Anonymous||reply 335||06/06/2021|
No one here defends Kandy as any kind of talent. She was more than a filler queen as far as I'm concerned. Because she was very popular in the outside world of Brooklyn and the Bronx and she's known to all those other queens. She came in with some real cred. Note how reluctant Monet, BoB or even mean old Raven were to criticize her during the season? It was a collective mass denial. Kissing WoWs ASS. Kandy has a lot of "friends" in other drag queens. She even was an AAA girl with Willam and Alaska after Courtney left. She is the subject of one of Alaska's videos. They all release crap. (You're a bit better Blair St. Clair and Shea Coulee) Too late to Rupaulogize was fun too Willam.
Dahlia Sins was a first out on Season 12 and she was far better presented in and out of drag than Kandy. Dahlia might be dumb, but very cute and sexy. Good drag. Spent the season as a reappearing head of broccoli. Also from the broken house of Aja. I don't get Kandy. She's not in demand. And Aja has had her say about Kandi and it wasn't nice. Aja is a fat bald man with whiskers now. Dahlia and Kandy rule the Doll Haus. And it's all pretty silly. Because you need some brains and integrity to build a Drag House - not just sloppy blowjobs and still working the shemale corner.
Symone is going to surprise people. Like Bimini in the UK. A new kind of Drag Race Star was Born.
Violet, Aquaria and Miss Fame paved the way, but Symone's future will be about more than just fashion. Symone is about to do what The Vixen dreamed of. Same with Bimini. They illuminate the struggles and beauty of LIFE! WOKE fashion queens who work in creative collectives but are not only interested in LEWKS. Not a joke, just a fact.

I'm surprised by how bad Valentina's make-up is in that pic at R318, has it always been that bad? The crack cocaine line down her nose and the visible wig line across her forehead... for someone who spends an inordinate amount of time getting ready you'd think she'd be better presented than that.

That's the lace on her lace front wig, R342. Just some bad lighting. Not every queen can afford to cut that lace off every wig, R342.

Speaking of our Bimini Babes, I'm rewatching S2 UK starting at the episode Morning Glory (yet to watch fully) At the beginning, knowing what we do now, it's interesting to see how the camera in the work (sorry, I'm old, WERK room) is focused more on fucking carpet lint before Bimini even has a few frames. If they only knew.... That said, glad they haven't re-cut it, because this is when everyone thought LC was the clear winner. Again, watching back he is not...that. I think Ru bet on the wrong horse.
I LOVE that UK contracts are nothing like the US contracts, and all of these bitches, winners or "losers" can go on and do their own thing. Bimini "losing" was one of, if not the, biggest win in Drag Race. Bimini has always done her own thing and now is doing it bigger and better than anyone in the game right now. Violet must be seething. Katya is purring.
Some of us called it from the start. Katya threw whatever she could behind Bimini from day 1, and even now her fan is a Bimini Babes fan. Fucking love it.

I love Bimini, but don't give a rusty fuck that Katya promotes her so slavishly. That's a detriment if anything.
It won't hurt her though. Bimini is nothing like Katya, thank fucking christ.
Violet is also not seething. How silly. Bimini is her own entity and this kind of fame is always fleeting.
Except I see that Bimini could have a real career in acting and performance and fashion and as a mod/punk icon. A panelist or judge on non drag shows. She's got every kind of PERSONALITY. That's not possible in America for longer than 10 months. Like most good Brits, Bimini will visit, but not move to L.A. She's unlikely to completely sell out. Someone unique, surpsinging, political and hungry. Let's go.
No one needs Katya's old methy ass in an ironic dress. Bimini does irony in her sleep. She's aiming for MUCH more.

r345 Not True. I think Bimini was unprepared for Drag Race. The Corona break allowed her to up her game and bring better stuff. If you remember she was almost eliminated. Lawrence was prepared from day one. I think that is why he won over Bimini. If the Coivd 9 month break did not happen, would the top four be the same??
|by Anonymous||reply 364||06/10/2021|
Yeah, the Covid break was the best thing to happen to Bimini. After they returned, she was firing on all cylinders until the end of the season.
OTOH, Lawrence really lost a step or two after the Covid break. He wasn't the same competitor we saw in the first few episodes, where he was almost untouchable. Like Gigi in US Season 12, he peaked too early.

R391 I don't know if it's really to his detriment that he has created a lot of shows that haven't lasted more than one season. He gets paid for every one of them, and if migrating Drag Race to VH1 increased ratings for VH1 and if moving DRAS to Paramount+ increases Paramount+ subscriptions significantly, then RuPaul Charles's currency in TV programming is going to go through the roof and he will keep getting development deals. The failure of a series probably doesn't mean that much if he can drive viewers to migrate among channels and platforms.
