I like Dr. Silky even more because of the insane, frothing bitch here, who posts with focused venom in hatred of her. I guess it helps me understand why some people are the target of trolls, because the poster's venom makes me want to post praise I would not post organically.

AS6 should be a shitshow, but I will watch, hoping it has even an ounce of the joy that Drag Race Espana is showing. Even Spain's Wokest of the Woke has a sense of humor about they.

Worst contestant in the history of the show, by a mile. Pathetic, untalented, and blatantly kept on screen and brought into the finale to be loud when she had no business being in the top four. I was embarrassed seeing her flopping around the stage like she stood a chance in hell of winning.

She's no star. She's not entertaining. Just NO.

R54 probably....but that's whats killing the show for me.

How can you take this competition seriously when Silky is considered a finalist... and then and All Star..?! Huh?!!?

I guess we live in a world now where I can be a football star too, just because I can wear the helmet and jog across the field....right?

And you can be a doctor because you can wear a labcoat and say "cough please"....right?

We can't even say "Silky is good at what she does" because. ..what does she do? She's too damn green, too insecure and hasn't figured out her "thing" yet. She's a trainwreck. It's like watching a kindergarten kid take an SAT exam. You KNOW they aren't ready. Its sad.

The whole thing is depressing and trivializes the hard work so many put into their careers and the time it takes to become a seasoned performer. Now being sloppy and obnoxious and OPENLY BEGGING FOR MORE EXPOSURE is enough to get more work.

...who even wants this crown anymore?

I used to hope Willam would someday return to win All Stars but clearly its beneath him and others of his talent and skill.

I didn't see that "Silky" posted here so if that's really you, SNG, I'm genuinely sorry if I've offended but we come here to speak honestly and that's my honest opinion.

It was wrong of them to keep you in the spotlight so long last time. I am 200% turned off by seeing that they brought you back because....what are their standards? What are yours? Earn your coin and best of luck and all that but...self awareness and dignity are important traits to becoming your best self.

I watch DR to see successful entertainers confidently put their best foot forward. Not to see inexperienced hams screaming at the camera and tearing wigs and costumes apart to cover for a lack of ability.

Silky made me embarrassed to watch the show and uncomfortable about how the platform is being used.

If I did a reality competition show I wasn't qualified for simply for the money and exposure...and the show (implausibly) kept me around so I could further embarrass myself....I'd not go back unless I'd pulled a massive 180 and knew I had grown and was super qualified to win.

Episode 1 Thoughts:

Jiggly probably should have also been in the bottom. I do not think Serena Cha Cha did that bad, Trinity did far far worse. But I cannot say that I would have wanted Trinity to leave. Serena was lucky to even get this chance. So right person went home.

Ginger was a bit disappointing. She is so talented and a great singer so having her dance to one of her poppy tracks was kind of boring but I get she wanted to show versatility.

Silky wasn’t the best singer, but it was an original concept and also on brand; for that alone she should have been safe, and Jiggly in the bottom instead.

I would have put Scarlett, Yara and Raja in top, with Raja winning.

by Anonymousreply 105June 25, 2021 10:47 AM

So now I understand that Trinity's an introvert, has accepted that she's an introvert, and has to maneuver around what that will mean in a competition show where the opinions of others matter.

All the girls singing or lip syncing to their own music? Stupid.

Serena with the wigs. Why didn't she actually use the wigs? I thought it was going to be a series of wig reveals or something.

The piano was nice. I would have preferred much more of the southern gospel piano without singing.

Yara is not long for this world. How many times did she wear that breast plate?

Rajah, Rajah, Rajah.

Episode 2 Thoughts: Not spoilers as the episode has been out for over 24 hours.

I heard leaks that Yara was out first and I am so glad that was wrong. I was worried that meant she was sent home in episode two, but I am glad she stayed.

Trinity had a shitty first look but her beautiful final look saved it. Both Jan and Scarlet totally flubbed the first category. Working Girl Realness is so easy, why would you come as a tire or a circular saw? Scarlets final look was beautiful but not enough to make up for the first two, so kudos to the judges.

I didn’t like Silkys final look, or her jeans looks, but I would rather see her on my TV than Jiggly so I am not mad.

Rightful winner, rightful runner up in Eureka. Honorable mention to Trinity for that gown.

R110 Actually she doesn’t. Aquaria slipped and fell during the finale. So, Eureka should have beat her. But, Ru decided to call it a tie and then allow Aquaria to win. If he had favoritism towards Eureka, that is an odd way to show it.

Eureka is the most put together and fashionable big queen the show has ever had. She is always well put together. Even if people do not like her personality, she is polished.

Ginger is one of those queens that I can admit is talented, but something about her just doesn’t “click” for me. I really don’t think that any queens who have been on an iteration of All Stars that wasn’t AS1 should be allowed to compete again.

by Anonymousreply 119June 25, 2021 3:19 PM

My straight younger sister forced me to watch it, when I wanted to watch football highlights like a proper lesbian. Blehhh.

Anyway, it’s quite jarring how after all this time RPDR changed the soundbite “May the best *Woman* win” to “May the best *Drag Queen* win”. Hmmm. Dunno how to feel about that. Really it’s technically more accurate and in some ways more respectful to actual women, but it also feels a bit like capitulation to some T pandering (and I don’t have a problem with Ts competing btw—they used to be men, and they aren’t actually women, so whatever, fuck it up).

There is also a noticeable uptick in quality for the graphics on the AS shows compared to the normal ones. Isn’t that backwards? And they remixed the runway ident music as well, it sounds like a robot having an epileptic fit. The whole production is rather on the busy and blaring side, lacking the thrown together chaotic-crackhead charm of earlier seasons (I enjoy seeing clips of the first few seasons in flashbacks, it looks like a more fun show).

One time my husband and I were walking by this pizza place that used to be next door to Sidetrack in Chicago. It was a lovely Sunday afternoon.

This BIG GURL queen came out the door and tried to get us to come in by saying "WE HAVE BOTTOMLESS MIMOSAS FOR YOU COUPLE A **BOTTOMS**"

I'd also rather watch a terrible comedy routine than another queen singing over a boring as fuck re-mix. At least Silky, Yara, and Scarlet did something "different," to varying degrees of success.

R156 Jan is one of those queens who definitely should have passed on All Stars until she had time to grow. She was boring and uncharacteristic on her original season, and she hasn’t changed at all. Nothing about her feels authentic.

R155 when I saw all the songs I thought "I guess everyone was told to sing", but then they started changing it up. Singers are rarely memorable, they should have done things like what Scarlett did. Even Raja, who I immensely dislike, did something different and therefore memorable even if it was just her quickly sewing two pieces of fabric together.

Yara's floppy tits were the star of her act, but there wasn't a lot to it. It just made Ru laugh the most. The other acts were better and more planned out. Yara was just gimmicky.

Jiggly is whining and crying throughout the whole Untucked episode 2, so they must have not had much material to work with. Jiggly clearly needs to dial down the estrogen, she's even whinier than she was on her season.

R165 I have not liked any of the (direct from) Puerto Rican queens. They're all so annoying in different ways. I know it's a different style of drag but they can't speak English either so the "humor" just comes from them sounding unintelligible and screwing up words.

Scarlett's confident, but for good reason. You (hopefully) won't see her whining and crying and bursting into tears to the camera like practically all the other queens. I don't remember her making excuses when she was being judged, either.

I still don't see why the other queens didn't like her during season 11. Brooke Lynn Hytes (who shall be referred to as 💩🇨🇦 from now on) and Rajah (who shall be referred to as 💩👓 from now on) seem to have been the ringleaders of that particular gang, which makes me think that 1) 💩👓 was jealous of her and looking for reasons to hate on her (since that seems to be one of 💩👓's main character traits), and 2) 💩🇨🇦 saw Scarlett as competition and tried to get the group to gang up on her.

Silky, can you clarify what happened with Scarlett during s11? You seemed to be one of the queens who got along with her, at least you weren't trashing her in the confessionals like 💩👓 and some of the other queens were.

R188 she was memorable on her season (11). She was the one who wore the stupid huge black framed glasses and got into fights with everyone because she was insecure and jealous. She also bashed almost everyone in her confessionals.

Of course whenever there is a villain queen (and she clearly is a cunt, so don't say it's editing) there is always the "stop bullying her!" tour after some young obsessed fans take it too far. The Villainess just has to claim that people sent her death threats and then do a few interviews, and then the Redditors will take over and ban all the hate from the boards and pretend like it never happened.

And now she's back for a redemption tour with Ru clearly in her corner.

R184 I think Scarlet deserving wasn’t in the top for two reasons. First, she didn’t embrace the materials. She used fabric for her final gown while Raja used a chair. Secondly, Scarlett’s first look was shit. She was supposed to serve Blue Collar Realness, but instead she was dressed as a circular saw.

by Anonymousreply 196June 26, 2021 9:38 AM

R136 I had the opposite impression of her first look. It was creative and outside the box, while still being fashion. Most of the blue collar realness looks were similar concepts, except for hers. (Incidentally wasn't it stupid of Trinity to do a crossing guard when Eureka said she was? Like, I'd have made a beeline for anything else since you know yours would be compared with hers).

Ru has given accolades to queens in the past who have done creative interpretations of challenges so they aren't militant about it unless they are looking for a reason to ding someone.

I don't know about the fabric choice on the last look, I'd have to watch it again. I thought she used the provided materials, which included fabric like blankets etc.

by Anonymousreply 197June 26, 2021 10:35 AM

R197 I think for “realness” categories, they like to be a little more on the nose. You can get creative, like the kid on Eurekas ass or Jiggly using a trashcan lid as a hat. But, just covering your self in saws and calling it a carpenter is kinda off the mark. Plus, the outfit was ugly. I do agree she should have been in the top, but Raja rightfully won. Plus, Raja winning is better for storyline.

Look, I didn't like her on her season for obvious reasons...she wasn't good and was trying too hard to be a character and was desperate, all while lacking charm. That's a completely fair take.

When I realized she might be here at DL reading and posting, I naturally tried to be polite. I'm not interested in fighting with her or tearing her diwn and I wasn't even talking to her in the first place - I was venting with other viewers here. That's what this forum is supposed to be for.

....but I'm not an asshole who can't be considerate of soneone else's feelings. Once she popped up, of course I tried to be cordial. Would you rather I doubled-down? What's the point in that...? Bitchiness for bitchiness' sake?

My opinion hasn't changed at all....but I also don't want to bully someone. Tail isn't between my legs at all. Why would it be?

Y'all are weird. If I say I don't like her schitck, I'm a "deranged queen" but if I try to be sensitive to her presence here, then I'm a coward with my tail between my legs...??

I'm also a proud Rajah hater, because she is aggressive and rude for no reason while thinking her own shit smells like lilacs, and clearly has some issues with self-esteem.

Other queens I despise include Brooke Lynn Hytes, Priyanka from Canada's Drag Race, Gottmik, Naomi Smalls, Tina Burner, Phi Phi, and a handful more.

I am able to give honest commentary on the queens, though, for example I think Rajahs variety show act was clever. I didn't think her runway looks were as amazing compared to some of the others. I just don't like people with stank attitudes or who are clearly fake, and Rajah has a ways to come after her cuntery on season 11 before I'll change that opinion.

Then Silky seemed cool the rest of the season, aside from a few cases where she stepped on her own feet. I've not laughed harder at a Drag Race episode than the one where Silky had to dress Souju, mainly from her reactions to being tossed into an unwinnable situation. But she still did a good job (except for Souju's makeup, which was bad).

Compare that to a queen like Brooke Lynn Hytes who clearly knew the camera was there and was very careful what she said and constantly editing ("clarifying") things she said afterwards, and I think the fan base just doesn't get the nuance and that they were being played by that charm-free ex-drag ballet dancer.

I think the queens accusing of Silky of playing for the cameras were actually the ones who were playing for the cameras, and they were pissed that Silky was thwarting their plans and planned catchphrases.

And why can't most of these queens wear decent makeup? The powdered sugar around their eyes looks terrible with the pink lighting on stage (terrible lighting). When Sonique and Ginger do the same slather technique, you know things are bad.

You can tell Ru doesn't like Scarlett Envy because she should have at least been one of the tops for her bubble/boob act. That was pretty fun and different. Instead she was just "safe". I hope she doesn't have to lip sync anytime soon because once she does she'll be gone.

I was a big fan of Pandora in her first season, but she is coming off as unappealingly fragile this time. I didn’t think her variety act was THAT great, and certainly not better than Scarlett. I’m not a Scarlett stan, but that bubble routine was one of my favorite DR performances ever.

I barely remember Ra’Jah at all, but I’m enjoying her on All-Stars. I would have given her the variety show win, and I loved her finale handmade outfit on ep. 2.

And while we are talking about queens we hate, I don’t care for most of those mentioned at r212, and I’d add Alexis Mateo to my list. I can’t even think now of anything especially egregious she did (other than that Heather/booger shit), but I just could never stand her. Don’t really like Coco Montrese, either. Or that queen who was always talking about her “cucu.”

Then when she got replaced because RuPaul was required to use a union member for that terrible Netflix show Delta completely burned the bridge.

Rajah is the Reddit fan favorite this season, but I can't for the life of me understand why -- besides that the Reddit community always gives hyperbolic praise to Black queens for woke points

by Anonymousreply 254June 27, 2021 6:07 AM

R254 because last season she got a lot of (well-deserved) hate for being a vile cunt, and then went on the "vile cunt interview tour" where they claim to have gotten death threats and suffered terribly at the hands of 14 year olds on the Internet and/or tried/thought about committing suicide.

After that happens, the mods for the Drag Race groups go back and disappear the threads bitching about her and the "how dare you attack a queen of color" posters come out of the woodwork and shame everyone remaining who says or thinks anything bad about the queen.

Happened with Brita Filter after season 12, too.

And you can tell Ru is giving Rajah this season as a redemption tour (even threw her a cool $20k in the second episode when there were more deserving queens). Probably because Rajah reminds Ru of himself, as is often the case with the younger, skinny queens. So they're being programmed to like her this season which means someone else is being set up as the villain.

If you want to call the Redditors out on their crap you can concern troll about how Rajah made fun of Trinity's speech impediment, which would have gotten anyone else labeled as "problematic" and cancelled already, and they will bend themselves in knots trying to justify it.

Drag Race does this weird thing where there's always one season that is impossible to find except on (random obscure streaming app) for a long period of time. I could watch season 10 and season 12 and 13, but not season 11. So season 11 is the one I have most recently in mind which is why the Rajah drama is still fresh for me and why I remember it so well.

I don't typically need/carry a cable sub but I paid for it last month so I could finally watch s11 on the VH1 app.

R267 that may be what she claimed after the fact but at the time she lost it at Plastique because she was jealous of her for getting to see her drag mom Alyssa (during the dance challenge, Alyssa was there for everyone), get a hug from Ru, and then got to see her cute boyfriend on video in the same week. I think you've got the events confused in your head.

Rajah also knew she was lipsyncing that episode so she was lashing out at everyone rather than admit her own failings. And Plastique was an easy target because she's nice and doesn't fight back. Rajah was clearly jealous of her, just like she was clearly jealous of Scarlett.

The nastiness Rajah displayed after she won the lip sync against Scarlett Envy - badmouthing her again and refusing to read out loud what Scarlett wrote on the mirror (and demanding no one else do so, either) was just more example of her piss-poor attitude and lack of grace. No surprise she went home the following week.

I thought it was interesting that Ra'Jah didn't return for the makeover challenge later in the season*, but queens who had been eliminated before her, like Soju and Honey, did.

*To comment on something R187 asked (whether Silky got along with Scarlet in S11), they did go at it in the workroom in this episode, because Scarlet made it clear that she was surprised to see both Silky and Vanjie still in the competition.

r273 Scarlett said that after she'd already been eliminated though, when they were all talking. An honest opinion isn't really shade. I didn't think Scarlett was shady, she said what she was thinking, at least based on what was shown on the show. But before that I don't remember seeing any negativity between Scarlett or Silky which is why I was curious, since it seemed like some of the queens kept complaining about how Scarlett was annoying and too confident. They didn't seem to show much of that on the show, though, so I was wondering what (if anything) happened behind the scenes that set them all off. Their "examples" of Scarlett being cocky weren't really that bad, definitely not equal to the level of vitriol directed at her by Rajah.

And to be quite honest, Vangie and Silky only survived some of those episodes because Ru purposely threw them a bone. Ru knows good TV when she sees it and even though they may not have done the best in those challenges, they were hilarious and added a lot to the episodes. The times when one or both of them would have been in the bottom, Ru would make them safe, and that carried them through to the final few episodes until Vangie got eliminated at last. Very, very clearly done because of personality - and there's nothing wrong with that, except it does make Ru and the other judges look hypocritical when they're ostensibly judging based on the lip sync, or the challenge, and you know they're not.

Speaking of really transparent and fake judging, do you remember when Priyanka had that HIDEOUS, cheap-looking dress with the metal umbrella skeleton? She looked like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree. And the judges (led by Brooke Lynn and Stacey) just ORGASMED over it when she clearly should have been in the bottom and/or sent home because of it. It just looked so cheap and bad on camera, I don't see how they could have thought it was worthy of any praise except a "well... at least you tried".

by Anonymousreply 275June 27, 2021 6:35 PM

r270 You don't change that much in two years. She's older and so probably a little more mellow in general, but she is still the same nasty cunt. She's just more aware of the cameras and is biting her tongue. You can see her real personality come out during that confessional where she was making fun of Trinity K. Bonet's stuttering.

While I know there's still some "twist" coming with the "Game within a game", I'm really glad we don't have to listen to Jiggly's whining and crying. Like she was bad before in her season, but now that she's on hormones and trans? Jesus. It was weird that the second All Stars Untucked focused on her crying and drama about possibly being eliminated and then spent the other half focusing on Brooke Lynn Hytes. We got next to none of the queens talking like a regular Untucked, it felt more like bits they'd cut from the main episode than anything. I ended up fast-forwarding through a lot of it since it was just Jiggly crying and Coming To Terms With Things.

His little facial expressions, the way he talked, the queeny nastiness, the precious makeup and outfits - just everything wrong, wrong, wrong. And then you add in the judging and the fact that Brooke Lynn Hytes seems to suck personality out of people AROUND her, not to mention her own styrofoam-packed charm, and it was just a mess. I just couldn't even stand to look at him or listen to him he was so bad.

Okay, back in 2003, I joined the Makeup/Hair union, and the fee was $4700, which they let me pay half, then then other half within 18 months. I know that the fee has increased (I think it's up to $7000 or more), and they demand that you pay everything upfront. So I don't know what this $2000 sum is. Dues are about $300 quarterly, and that includes our medical/dental, which is pretty amazing. If the union wanted at least $5000-$6000 upfront, then I do understand her situation, but she could have gotten a loan.

If Delta's cosmetology license expired, then she would have to pay $100 to renew it. If she got it in CA, she wouldn't have to take classes, but if it was another state, she would have to take 3 months off to take all the classes.

Scarlett this time around reminds me of Gigi Goode- supremely confident. She looks more uhhh fishy this time too, less like a man in a wig.

Besides, Ru doesn't play a bitchy judge. I don't know why people are saying Jeffrey was "filling her role" and acting like Ru because he wasn't, at all. It was either the way he really is when he ISN'T acting, or he was trying to make some new standout character that totally backfired. And the eye makeup just made him look silly.

They really just need to replace all three judges. Even Stacey was weird and had bad commentary.

R299 A'keria and Ginger will likely make it to the top 3. Pandora I would say top five at best. She's been coming across really nervous in the first two episodes and I think she might be intimidated. Also, the show seems not to like older Queens. I agree with R298 that if Ginger and A'keria make it to the top, A'keria will win. Since All Stars 4, producers have been wary of crowning white Queens although Ginger being plus sized might be enough to let Ginger crack by.

by Anonymousreply 302June 28, 2021 3:22 PM

It does seem intentional that all of the recent queens have been black. There was also that season during the pandemic (12 or 13?) where Ru had only black guest judges. That would have been filmed during the BLM protests I think.

I just don't get much from Akeria. She's good but just not a personality that stands out to me. (I have taken a stand against using stupid punctuation in queens' names, it's like someone who puts hearts over their i's at this point).

I love Ginger (altho do think it's a bit odd that she made a big deal about how Jiggly is her best, BEST, BESSSST friend at the competition) but her runways aren't great and that seems to be The big requirement since season 6. So I don't think she will win unless Ru goes out of her way to clear the path for her.

Eureka has great runways and is good in a lot (not all) of challenges but she seems overexposed (and she has some big emotional antifans who would love to see her just drop dead, for whatever reason). So I don't think she will win.

Pandora so far seems to have lost whatever spark she had ages ago. She really made a negative impression in her original All Stars season and now she just seems very, very old and worn out. Has she had a drug problem or something similar?

R303 A few years ago there was a small but vocal backlash on social media claiming that RuPaul only liked to crown white and blonde Queens which is ridiculous for two reasons: it's people on social media who largely determine who the winner is, and to date, there have only been 4 or 5 white Queen's crowned in 13 season, the winners have been very diverse since the show started. But this irked producers and so Trinity and Monet tied AS4 fearing a backlash if Trinity won (despite the fact Trinity clearly won the season).

R304 oh yeah they've been saying that since season 7, I think. That was why Trinity and Monet x change were given the dual crowns for All Stars 4 (?)

It's a way of "working the refs", (similarly used by Republican politicians to bully news organizations and social media etc.). into giving them better coverage. I think the black queens tended to have less money coming in so their drag isn't as good (which Ru really values over everything) but that seems to have changed the last three seasons as the incoming queens have had much better outfits.

by Anonymousreply 305June 28, 2021 4:43 PM

I think a better way to level the playing field is to give each Queen a budget of $10,000. 12 queens = $120K (just add 2 or 3 more commercials into the show to pay for it or do an in show sponsorship - bring Absolut back) and all they are allowed to bring with them is makeup and hair and maybe some key additional pieces.

No other show requires the contestants to take out a second mortgage in order to compete. All Stars is different, these queen should be making money and can afford custom looks. But on the mother ship, you limit the people who can participate because they can't afford to.

by Anonymousreply 306June 28, 2021 4:58 PM

R303 I think it is intentional but for different reasons. In season 11, it was clear they wanted a Black queen because in part so many were cast. Then, in All Stars, it seems Manilla would have won, but Naomi kicked her out, and Valentina didn’t do as good as expected, so, while one of them could have won (non white), they had no choice but to give it to a Black queen. Then, during season 12, it was during the peak of BLM PLUS Sherry Pie was disqualified, so Jaida was kind of the only choice. Finally, in S13, Symone did too good not to crown. I don’t think it was ever a situation on “lets crown only Black queens for a while” and more of each season having factors which lead to a Black Queen winning. And then AS5 was made for Shae to win.

I also think that is why so many White queens won before that as well. Less about wanting a White queen and more about various circumstances on each Season. Asia fucked up sooo bad that she couldn’t win. Shangela was disliked by her peers. Sasha beat Shae unexpectedly.

R307 Based on things the Queens have said over the years, All Stars seasons almost always have a predetermined winner going in.

AS1 - Chad Michaels AS2 - Alaska AS3 - Trixie AS4 - Trinity (it was social media backlash that ultimately "forced" VH1 to declare a tie) AS5 - Shea AS6 is the first season I feel like it's anyone game because at this point they're scrapping the barrel.

I don’t think a black queen will win this season. They’d have to bring something new to the plate and Akeria and Rajah are pretty basic.

I think they’ll give it to a big girl or a trans girl. So Ginger, Eureka and Sonique are my bets. I guess Ginger or Eureka have beat chances but they tend to alienate viewers so who knows.

R310 I would agree with R312 and say that Ginger is the one who they will be steering to a win - why else bring her back again? She would be the first plus-sized winner, something that the show has been wanting for a long while now. Ginger & Kylie/Sonique are the front-runners.

R323 - Since AS3 many of the Queen have come forward and claimed that they were basically told by producers that Trixie was going to win the season. In fact, during the vote at the end of the season producers heavily pressured them to eliminate Shangela from the top 2. Katya has also stated they knew that Alaksa was going to win.

r317 that pissed me off when I found out Aquaria tripped and fell and they gave her a re-do.

I still think Shangela was supposed to win All Stars 3, but somehow rubbed all the other queens the wrong way. I think the eliminated queens voting was designed as a way to keep Bebe from advancing to the finals, not Shangela. Kennedy lucked out. I haven't seen any of the queens saying that Trixie was going to win. I think that's just a myth started by Shangela's fans.

I still don't understand why Ginger thinks she came across as negative during her season or her earlier All Stars. She seemed fine to me, but I guess social media scuttlebutt can create a myth when it's branded "bitter old lady brigade".

Yes, Shangela rubbed some queens the wrong way and allegedly according to Milk and Thorgy, producers used that to try and get the queens to vote Shangela out by playing up this idea that Shangela already has a big career but poor Kennedy doesn't.

R326 / R327 You are making that up. None of the AS3 Queens said they were pressured to vote for Trixie or that they were told she would win. Aja tweeted recently that she did not vote for Shangela because she didn’t think that she deserved most of her wins, including for Snatch Game, for which Aja thinks she should have been in the top (I agree). A lot of the other girls, including Dela, have either said or implied that they did not vote for Shangela because they did not like her. They found her too cut throat.

I do NOT like Trixie at all. I think she is boring, not funny, a shit musician and ugly looks, but none of the Queens have said anything that you stated.

I also still think it's totally bizarre that the fans now expect Drag Queens to be role models, which is a thing pushed by Ru herself as she tried to transform into a Pop Psychology/Self-Help Guru. Like they work in bars! And are drunk half the time! And most of their jokes are about sex or other risque shit! They're SUPPOSED to be messy, bitchy, weird, and self-involved.

But no, now Drag Queens must be exemplars and scions to the new generation, leading them into the hopeful and bright political activist future with their golden rods of learning and discipline and makeup skills.

I was not a fan of Silky on her original season and I really didn't like her attitude and her sloppy drag, and much like Kandy felt like she was constantly being given a pass by the judges when she really should have been eliminated.

BUT that said, she did make me laugh a few times, so she wasn't completely unentertaining as Kandy was. I am willing to give her another chance on All Stars, but after the first couple of episodes I'm not yet convinced she's managed to elevate her drag. Though I do think her hair and make-up on her entrance was much better than I'd seen previously so there is some improvement there.

I really could not STAND Ra'jah on her original season, so far she hasn't done anything to annoy me and her looks have been very good, it remains to be seen whether she will have a rudemption.

Scarlett I thought was great in her original season and was sent home prematurely so I'm pleased to see her back and I hope she does well.

I don't have strong opinions particularly over the rest of the cast yet. I do think that they are perhaps stretching the ALL STARS concept a bit at this point but that's the problem with having an All Stars season each year - really, it should have been bi-annually at most. Though that does make it slightly more interesting as it's really hard to call who might end up on top!

Katya, like Ben Dela Creme, has a conscientious objector streak that keeps her from buying into the program like other queens do - she had a great run on AS2, but I think exorcising some of her demons was way more important to her than winning.

Two points on this. Did you not like Silky because YOU really didn't like Silky or was it because the way Silky's storyline was edited? You don't think she got a mix of the villain/hot mess edit for her season?

And I'm not one of these blame the editing people. People said what they said and did what they did, but it can be edited together to appear a certain way and lead the audience down a certain road. Once again I will compare it to Big Brother. The people who watch the feeds versus the people who just watch the edited show, get a completely different view of the houseguests.

And as for her "sloppy drag"? Isn't that what Drag Race is sort of about? Taking queens who are on the come up and helping them polish their performances and looks so they can move to the next level?

by Anonymousreply 378June 30, 2021 2:35 AM

They did seem to go out of their way to show every time Silky had the slightest flaw in her outfits.

That being said, she seemed to have a "good enough" attitude about some of the challenges (like the one with the face mask where she barely did any makeup under it). Like she knew she was doing enough to be safe and that she wasn't going to do more. She's definitely not a perfectionist like some of the queens.

I liked the messiness though, but that whole season felt off because it really did seem like Ru wanted Silky and Vangie there the entire time, and so she pushed them through, despite Michelle's endless (and irritating) nagging about Vangie's silhouette. So you knew in advance who was going to stay. Ru's gotten far more obvious with her machinations.

She did the same thing with Kandi Muse in her season, but Kandi was far less entertaining than Silky or Vangie.

by Anonymousreply 379June 30, 2021 4:47 AM

To the person above saying that the fat queens should stop talking about being fat or lose weight - It's actually not that simple. When you get to a certain level of obesity, your metabolism slows down to a crawl. So you really aren't eating a ton of food. And repairing a broken metabolism can be difficult to impossible.

In order to lose weight, a person must eat less calories, but when your metabolism is that out of whack that you burn 50% the calories you should be (again, when you get to the "morbidly obese" level) you have to actually starve yourself to lose weight. You can't just "eat normally". Your body wants, for example, 5k calories a day. But if you eat more than 3k calories, because your metabolism is halved, you actually will gain weight. So to lose weight you have to eat 2k or so, and if you're morbidly obese this is starving yourself.

Once you lose weight, your metabolism is still fucked, so you have to - again - eat less than a normal person would to just MAINTAIN your weight. In effect you are having to diet forever. There is no return to normalcy.

The only way to break this currently is to do something drastic like gastric bypass surgery, which besides being expensive, does not last and has lifelong health implications.

Probably because it's a entertainment show first and competition second, maybe third. Keeping Queens that get a reaction from the audience keeps people tuned in. It's easy for people on a message board to say they only watch only for the "art of drag" and blah blah blah, but everyone really tunes in for the personalities and the messy stuff.

R378 - I don't buy into that bullshit about 'it's the edit' AT ALL. The things she said and did, completely rubbed me up the wrong way and that has nothing to do with the edit whatsoever - I just really didn't like her attitude at all. It would have been a bad attitude even IF she had come through with some stunning looks but the fact she didn't - just made it even worse for me.

I get what you mean about queens not needing to be perfect, but the issue I had, similar to that with Kandy, is she was sloppy AND called out for it numerous times but DID NOT IMPROVE. To me, you don't have to be perfect and polished from the get go, but if you receive feedback you need to show that you are taking it on board and you are prepared to put the time and work into improving. I don't feel Silky did that, because she had that aforementioned attitude that being big and loud was enough. I think she even said it - "America's gonna love me!". No girl.

by Anonymousreply 392June 30, 2021 4:08 PM

R392 she tried, it just wasn't enough for the judges. Like the episode after she got called out for her padding, she was clearly then wearing multiple pairs of stockings to smooth out the pad edges (as suggested) but they still showed Michelle digging her for her padding problems, which were much less visible because she WAS listening to the judges. They didn't show Michelle noticing that she'd tried and had improved, because that wasn't part of their storyline that Silky was messy and overconfident and not listening to anyone's feedback.

They were definitely pushing the narrative that she was a messy queen, just as they were pushing the narrative that Vangie relied on a SINGLE SILHOUETTE (gasp!). The constant critiques about it from the judges on both counts got tiresome and annoying.

For someone with a body like Silky's it's got to be a lot harder to make sure everything is on point from all angles. Compare that to a queen like Eureka, who is a big queen but also has a different body shape, and that makes it far easier for her to handle things like that. It's Silky's body type that works against her. Not just as a big queen, but also the shape she's fighting against.

I made sure to add this in my post:

[quote]And I'm not one of these blame the editing people. People said what they said and did what they did, but it can be edited together to appear a certain way and lead the audience down a certain road.

I think that the production can lead the audience through editing. No, an editor can't put words in someone's mouth or change an action. But an editor can leave out context. They can leave out a rave the judging panel. An editor can play with the timeline just with the position of a scene. And the producers can lead a queen down a certain path in the confessionals. If the story for the week is "Silky is annoying" , they can make the story much bigger than it is with editing and the confessionals.

I have never said that Silky doesn't have a big personality. And maybe I'm biased because I'm a fan, but the show can manipulate the audience. Reality TV isn't new, we know how it operates... to a degree.

The problem with trying to "fix your edit" and get a redemption arc is that it very often results in you losing that spark that made you memorable and fun the first time around.

You can't "fix" people's perception of you. You can only hope, if you feel you came off badly, that everyone who watched your season is dead of drug overdoses or has transed themselves and thus has bigger problems.

I thought Silky seemed oddly subdued in episodes one and two and apparently she got sent home as a warning to the other queens - do that and you're gone.

Take a look at how WOW handled her being an idiot and distracting in the workroom and phoning in her outfits. They just showed the other queens saying she was in her own world in a "oh, she's so beloved and nuts" sort of way. What I saw? Someone acting for the camera to get more airtime and attention.

Compare that to how Silly was shown by WOW and what her castmates said - the first several episodes they repeatedly said she was annoying, that she was acting for the camera, etc., and that became her main storyline. What I saw? Someone who was super excited and enthused to be there and who the other queens were jealous of.

Maybe part of the difference is the other queens knew Yara isn't a threat - she's a filler queen - where Silky could have won the whole thing.

I always had the impression that Laganja was trying so hard during S6's taping to create meme-worthy moments for the fanbase, since she is Alyssa Edwards' drag daughter and no doubt saw how Alyssa became an audience favorite through her quirky mannerisms and sayings. The problem was that Alyssa wasn't noticeably trying to create those moments, since she genuinely felt that she was all glamor and no humor. So by the time Laganja was eliminated, she had irritated the judges, all the other remaining contestants (including her long-time friend Adore who correctly clocked her act for what it was) and probably Ru herself.

I think she would have had a better run had she got on the show in a later season, after getting some maturity and a better combination of meds. She's apparently turned down All Stars several times.

by Anonymousreply 494July 4, 2021 10:51 PM

[quote]The fact that this season has so many former All Stars contestants on it makes me think a lot of queens have turned them down, if offered.

Adore Delano says she was invited back for AS6 but turned it down because production wouldn't approve her performance for the variety show. Joslyn Fox put the show behind her and says she has no desire to do All Stars.

There are certain queens that have nothing gain by returning to Drag Race. I don't blame Laganja for steering clear giving how unfortunately she was portrayed in her season. I would say Bianca Del Rio and Courtney Act come to mind as others that have nothing to gain.

by Anonymousreply 501July 4, 2021 11:41 PM

Ru blocked her on Twitter after she called him out for defending using the word "tranny" on Marc Maron's podcast.

The dislike, however, is generally because Courtney doesn't kiss Ru's ass. There's a story on Reddit (not sure if it's true) that Ru once asked Courtney why she covers her eyebrows in drag instead of shaving them off, and Courtney replied that she still has a sex life.

Nina Bonina Brown turned down AS5 because she didn’t want to be on a season with Shae and have rehash old drama. Also, she pretty much knew Shae was already picked to win the season. Smart move on her part.

Ganja keeps turning down All Stars because the original show was bad for her mental health. Now that she had such an impressive showing on this season, makes less sense for her to go on. Why risk a bad edit when you have finally won back the fan base.

I believe Heidi was asked this season but said no. Good move.

I don't know if it's the real Silky reading this, but I just wanted to say - I can tell Silky is at heart a good person, and I did actually want to see more of her...BUT that said I've seen a couple of interviews and Silky is complaining about her mistreatment by fans and club promoters etc after her original season, and while I agree that hating on people is NOT ok and she most likely WAS mistreated, there seems to be a lack of self-awareness there and no acknowledgement of the negative behaviours that were the reason why people had negative perceptions.

I'm not saying someone deserves abuse for someone not liking them on a reality TV show, don't get it twisted, just saying that a little bit of acknowledgement that if you come across a certain type of way you have to accept that people are going to have opinions about it, and instead of complaining about how you're treated, perhaps admitting that there are some negative traits that need a bit of work would go a long way.

Otherwise, it's the equivalent of being obnoxious towards someone and then being surprised and affronted that they don't like you - and expecting them to treat you well when you have not given them any reason to.

Oh and for those asking, Laganja recently (as in, last week or so - before the episode) came out as trans, and perhaps that's why she didn't feel like she wanted to participate in All Stars before. Maybe now she feels ready and will be on AS7.

You can ignore them and they just come after you harder. Do you know what it's like to get hundreds of messages a day to kill yourself? Promoters would not book me because they would get hate if I was on a bill. I get I was loud and obnoxious but gurl, really? Some people are just cruel and have way too much free time.

The Drag Race fandom is weird. It's "woke" and racist at the same time. it's a mix of gay men, teen girls, and middle aged suburban women. It's trans positive and transphobic. The one thing that seems to be consistent is the response to the black queens. Heidi seems to have crossover appeal, but it seems to be hit and miss with the others regarding post show bookings and appearance fees, etc.

R514 the performative wokes like to bitch at Drag Race and its fandom (even though they are part of it) because the black queens don't usually get as much Twitter and Insta followers as the white queens. So they use that to claim that the whole thing is racist, rather than that people don't want to be lectured to by drag queens thinking they have to use their "platform" to speak out about things, rather than be funny and fabulous. They also use it to attack the white queens.

It's also used to work the refs on Drag Rave so the judges are more inclined to give special attention/the win to the black and trans contestants.

Trixie Mattel is an example of a white queen they especially dislike because she ISN'T much of a performative social justice queen, and she has a huge fanbase. So they say her fans are racist etc.

GottMik just seemed like a straight woman who wanted to be a gay man so much that she transed herself. Her runways were beautiful and expensive but many were copies of things worn by queens in earlier seasons.

I agree R538. Gottmik has a vagina and I don’t see how it’s transphobic to point out that allows her to wear things most other drag queens can’t.

But because of her sensitivities around trans there was a whole lot of performative criticism of Nina.

I really want to like Jan, but there just seems to be no soul to her performances. With many of the other contestants, you can see an inner drive to express their personality and humor, along with the drag fabulousness. With Jan, it's just the exterior she's trying so hard to express, nothing else. It's really strange.

The thing is, she's really good at that exterior. I think she just needs to go on a Walkabout for a few years, and find her soul, so that she can come back and kick ass with her presentation skills.
