They all had a meltdown over on twitter because some guy said the biological woman shouldn't be there lol. Looks like it's going to be another Mik situation 🙄 Shame it's going the way of what happened to the US version and so soon. The first two seasons were great fun because they just didn't give a fuck, now they're going to be doing a lot of tiptoeing around....

All I know is I'm already rooting for Veronica Green. I think she had a good shot placing among the top three or even winning season two until she was hit with Covid. Just judging from the video, not thrilled by some of the looks which were presented. I know it's only meant as a taster but dressing up as a pig??

RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 3's Victoria Scone on making herstory RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 3's Victoria Scone on making herstory

Racers, start your engines. We're saying "hello, hello, hello" to a new cast of queens as season three of RuPaul's Drag Race UK hits the runway on Thursday.

The British version of RuPaul's smash hit show, which won the Emmy for outstanding reality competition programme on Sunday, launched in 2019.

The third UK series makes herstory with the international franchise's first cis woman drag queen, Victoria Scone.

BBC News sashayed on to the pink carpet to find out what else fans can look forward to.

Lots of cute boys this season. I've never heard Ru laugh as hard as he did at River.

I'm liking Victoria—she's funny and camp. Her second runway look was great.

Just based on first impressions, same as last season, don't the UK queens seem more likeable than those on the US version?

by Anonymousreply 11September 25, 2021 12:53 AM

R11 They definitely seem a lot less self conscious and ‘brand’ oriented than the US queens

The US queens seem to be constantly second guessing fan reaction and it makes everything feel so artificial and forced (in the more recent seasons especially). Maybe the same will happen in the UK version if it continues for a few more years but for now it’s great to see queens unencumbered by all that.

Victoria Scone is a great choice for first female queen. One she is a dyke so part of the community rather than a straight woman, and two she doesn't have some slamming hot bod so she is forced to do full drag and think about proportions.

Who was the queen who dressed up as the scary clown on the walkway? I get that it's her brand, but are we going to see such looks week after week. If so, I wonder if Ru or Michele will offer a critique such as "We get it - this is what you want to show the world. But we'd like to see you try at least one glamour look to show you have the ability to do more".

River is a cute boy, and probably an early out, but that statue runway was one of the stupidest and most hilarious things on RPDR ever.

by Anonymousreply 24September 26, 2021 5:11 AM

I don't think Ru laughed that hard at Alaska's "Red for Filth" commercial, Alyssa Edwards as Joan Crawford in AS2's Snatch Game, Miss Vanjie sashaying in S10, or Jujubee as Eartha Kitt in AS5's Snatch Game of Love.

by Anonymousreply 25September 26, 2021 10:12 PM

Getting Aquaria/Gigi/Gottmik 'created in a RPDR lab' vibe from Krystal Versace. Not surprised at all that she won the challenge, I'm expecting her to win the entire competition, actually.

Victoria is surprisingly very fun to watch, I'm very happy with how she fits in with the others. I'm also glad she's not a woo-woo-at-the-gay-club-chick type, with an entourage of 'her gays' surrounding her, however Pandora's box has now been opened for future bio queens who may not be as pleasant as her to be cast.

Was actually a little disappointed in Veronica's hometown look, it was kind of basic. Remember how the Season 2 girls were expected to use the Covid break to step their pussies up with their runway looks? Well, Veronica had nearly a year.

Ru seems unusually amused at people who point (and her fake laugh is really starting to grate). I was a bit shocked that no one made a 'look over there!' reference as River was doing her thing.

Is Charity Kase the first RPDR contestant with facial tattoos?

Agreed that the midget should have gone home.

River is going to be a Tia Kofi type, loveable but hampered by “regional” level drag. I think Krystal was the rightful winner, but I think Victoria Scone’s transformation from dowdy lesbian at the food coop to high camp plus-size queen is actually more interesting and impressive to me than the Krystal Versace boy-to-drag shift.

It's kind of cute how, on this show, "regional" is used as a euphemism for "underwhelming" or "cheap".

I'm torn whether or not the right person went home this week. While their moves in last week's lip sync were impressive, doing them again this week were equally so but it was like "what else are you putting into the performance"? Don't agree with the winner as I think there were better looks on the runway especially combined with performances in the challenge. Felt sorry for Victoria - that read really seemed like it hurt her at the time.

Of course there’s one lesbian on the show and suddenly it’s verboten to say someone’s fat. That kind of read - “she’s the [i]biggest[/i]… competition” - has been on drag race since the beginning and repeated countless times and people who complained about it (eg Alexis Michelle) were basically told that it’s just part of drag and you need to deal with it.

by Anonymousreply 35October 1, 2021 9:05 AM

R35 100% agree with you on this. Victoria’s lecture moment of Krystal afterwards to me was very much a tone police “things have changed around here” moment too. Something peculiar about how it was filmed as if Krystal had crossed a line too.

by Anonymousreply 36October 1, 2021 9:24 AM

Fat girls and knees clearly don't mix well on RuPaul's show.

I thought they might have done a double save, like they did in US S9 when Eureka had to withdraw, but I can see why they'd save that for next week and make a cliffhanger out of it.

Already there's been more than enough crying, but at least they're containing it to the workroom.... so far. Easy to skip.

The right one went home. That runway outfit was one of the worst ever seen on Drag Race. He might not have a lot of funds perhaps, but you could knock up simmering better than that for pennies.

As a person, I hated to see Veronica go, but as a drag queen, she was definitely in the bottom and her looks were the worst compared to the others. Anyone else find it odd that Ella isn't getting more positive feedback from the judges? In my opinion, she has had some of the best transformations and looks but has always been safe. Everything appears to be on point, but queens like Charity are being highly praised. And i think this was another runway challenge where Charity wore a full face mask instead of make up applied directly.

Ella is boring and a Rose-type where he’s trying to build a career as an actor and model using a drag Trojan horse. You can see they coming a mile away now.

by Anonymousreply 52October 10, 2021 3:39 AM

Wow, I did not agree with that lip sync result. I think Charity did the best overall LSFYL but failed worse in the challenge and runway look. Once again, her need to be "quirky" overwhelmed the theme of the runway. On the other side, Scarlett's lip sync was average, especially compared to Charity's. And what was up with Scarlett pulling out a tissue and waving it around? Her runway look was also meh, but at least it seemed applicable to the runway challenge. If anything, both should have been sent packing.

Speaking of the challenge, I love when a queen think they're being strategic when selecting team members and it winds up blowing up in their faces. HAH! Finally, I've come to really love Choriza May, coming across very charming and funny this episode.

by Anonymousreply 53October 15, 2021 8:42 PM

Yeah Scarlett would of gone surely if it wasn't a double save, which only happened because they need X amount of queens for the next challenge of snatch game. Im glad she stayed though she gives great talking heads and is cute. They hate Charity for some reason she wont last much longer. And that Spice Girls song when Say you'll be there was right there.

If they were going to do a double save this season, I'm surprised they didn't do it in Week 2 when Victoria was about to be eliminated due to her injury, or last week just after her elimination became official. This week's lip sync really didn't warrant a double save.

To me, the runway category was basically an invitation to do mediocre Halloween drag, which the vast majority of them did. Crystal’s Baby Spice but with Big Posh Spice Energy and Charity as Scary’s spirit animal were the only two looks that felt like they had anything to say.

Emma Bunton really comes across like a fun “just regular folk” lady and seems very tickled that she’s an icon to millennials.

I know nothing can follow up the lightning in a bottle that was UK S2, but this season is a bust (ha-ha). Ru seems totally joyless and checked out. I guess, though, that's because Down Under, UK S3, and All Stars International were filmed so close together.

R75 any fans came for Ru when she complained about the challenge being lackluster, saying it had been done so many time before so what did she expect when criticizing she wanted to see something "new". Next week is Snatch Game and, as usual, I'm interested to see who the queens will choose to impersonate - and how funny/good they are.

by Anonymousreply 76October 23, 2021 3:29 PM

Were the commercials good? No. But Ru and Michelle have pretended other skits were funny when they really weren't. Ru just being bored I do suspect is more of a commentary of how he is constantly having to film seasons back to back now, he is personally just bored and looking for something new.

Not that I even blame him, but it is interesting. In last years he would have politely laughed and still crowned a winner.

by Anonymousreply 77October 23, 2021 6:46 PM

I’m starting to see the rumored behind the scenes problems leaking into the show. The judges look tired and pissed. The show and cast is still miles better than the current US seasons. Ru was smart to keep Scarlett just as she was smart to keep Pearl. Cute guy and can bring the teen idol audience.

It’s actually a huge relief that Victoria was disqualified early. The whole season would’ve revolved around her and her story. I’m glad to go back to watching a drag competition and not a Make A Wish pageant for dumpy white women who can’t even walk on heels.

I have no problem with this week's winner. Ella killed it in Snatch Game as well as bringing a good look to the runway, especially compared to some of the other queens. Also have no problems with the bottom two, although it was a bit strange to have a double elimination although the lip sync was bad but, as with some other LSFYLs, I think it had more to do with the song than anything else. At the end, we have a top five and it should be interesting to see who goes next. Vanity and Scarlett seem to be just hanging on with nothing too fabulous or remarkable to make an impact, while Krystal, Kitty and Ella have shown talent and looks.

by Anonymousreply 82October 29, 2021 4:51 PM

I think River acquitted herself as well as anyone could to Lulu’s “Shout” - a corny and ultimately quite boring and repetitive uptempo that seems like it was recorded for junior varsity majorette teams. Choriza is very loveable even if her drag is a bit panto dame by way of Valencia, but she is noticeably inhibited when she actually has to perform.

I know that season two was probably lightening in a bottle but the difference between last season’s top 5 and this season’s is embarrassingly clear. Chippy Scarlett isn’t half as much fun as Lawrence’s self-indulgent actressy tantrums and Tia Kofi herself wouldn’t have touched that lime runway dress with a barge pole. Krystal (clearly destined for the win) can’t hold a candle to A’hora when it comes to fashion slut aesthetic or Ellie’s baby queen prodigiousness. Ella had a deserved win last night but for the trade of the season, she seems like she could be Tayce’s accountant. Kitty seems like a second understudy for Baga and Cheryl Hole on a third national tour. Vanity is a complete “who?” None of them are even in the same galaxy as Bimini.

A big let down.

by Anonymousreply 87October 29, 2021 7:52 PM

I think the younger hotter queens get away with more than the others. For example the pop justice forum are up in arms because River received negative critiques for doing the exact same thing as Kitty, which was just recite quotes by the characters. But the difference being that kitty did it with gusto, she was actually really funny and I thought she’d win tbh. Where as river literally read the quotes out in the same accent she always does, dull.

by Anonymousreply 88October 29, 2021 9:43 PM

Yeah, Kitty worked a schtick with the bronzer, and she did a (marginally) better job of making the quotes work in context of the questions. River did basically the same thing as Alyssa Edwards in All Stars 2, but without the panache.

R87, Victoria leaving meant absolutely nothing aside from a bunch of forced over the top praise from the judges and unearned airtime being taken over by someone who only had mediocre talent to begin with.

At least the show can be about drag queens now, not some validation of her existence to pander to the show’s female fanbase.

R90 Agreed. The only notable thing Victoria Scone did was complain about being called fat.

I think the biggest problem this season is Ru (and I liked her on seasons 1 & 2 of uk drag race). She’s not really gelled with the show much this season. Maybe cos it was filmed under strict lockdown in a different studio (maybe with a different crew?).

Best episode of DR (any franchise) in years. It was really fun just to focus on the queens racing around as they got ready for the different runways. It was a great change from the usual shit the producers try to pass off as dance/song/acting challenges.

The LSFYL was engaging and the song choice could not have played into Milan’s wheelhouse any better if she’d chosen it herself.

Added bonus: Michelle Visage looked the best she’s looked in years. Whoever did her makeup and hair excelled themselves.

Dunno, R101. It reminded me of those cooking shows (Masterchef) where the contestants are set difficult cooking challenges to make with impossibly short preparation times. It just makes the contestants more likely to fail. What was the point of this three-look obstacle course?

The only thing I liked about the episode was when they were each asked to nominate the one look amongst their fellow competitors that they most admired. That added a much-needed touch of positivity in this sour tasting, hastily-produced U.K. Series 3. Ru and the producers really fucked up when they put this series together on such a tight budget and short shooting schedule (initial production took 11 days to shoot in total it is claimed). It also didn't help that they sent home some of the most interesting and nicest queens early. They really should try cutting down on the manipulated drama. Of course, Victoria Scone dropping out through injury left a huge void as well.

All in all, this third series has been a huge disappointment. Thank goodness for Drag Race Canada's second season.

The season only improved when Victoria left. Yeah, this is the weakest of the UK seasons but still miles above current US. I’ve been watching UK back to back with Canada and quality drop in every conceivable way is so noticeable. UK still has a few more good years they can squeak out of it.

Wasn't surprised by this week's results. I think Scarlett was coasting for the past few weeks while the others were presenting more memorable challenges and looks. And Vanity killed that Lip Sync. As to the top four, I think any one of them are deserving to be the winner although Vanity seemed to have stepped up in the past few weeks rather than being strong throughout the run of the series.

I don't get why Scarlet thought she was the comedy queen of the season. Delusional.

Alesha Dixon was a fantastic judge and when they put on Scandalous by Mis-teen and she started rapping her parts of the song I was living. It was an hour and a bit of good tv.

That was such a confusing runway - and didn't Ru do a lip sync for the winner earlier in the series? Regardless, I thought Ella was going to be the winner, given the judges' comments, so it seemed strange when there were two saves with the two better performers of the week left on stage. Then to have them lip sync. Sorry to repeat myself but it just seemed so strange. Highlight of the episode - Russell Tovey!

I'm not sure if it was the editing or not (most likely was), but Russell seemed to be eye fucking Ella.

I agree r112 and r113. There is no point in having them lip sync and then giving them both a badge anyway. Since we did that it should have been a solo Kitty win.

Tovey did better than I thought he would as a guest judge, he really tried to have fun with it. Made me want to go rewatch some Looking sex scenes.

Kitty Scott Claws is too similar to Lawrence Chaney for her to win. Ru likes to give out diversity crowns these days. Krystal will win as the UK’s version of Aquaria.

by Anonymousreply 118November 12, 2021 10:10 PM

R113 I thought there were a few moments where it appeared Kitty had forgotten the words as well, so I suppose the LSFYL could have been a draw, especially since it didn't have any effect in the end with all four queens remaining on the runway. Definitely looked like Russell was into Ella, but as mentioned, it could have been the editing. We all know ALLLL versions of Drag Race love their editing.

[Quote]Krystal will win as the UK’s version of Aquaria.

Aquaria was more interesting than Krystal r118 (she won Snatch Game her season). Krystal isn't a developed queen yet, she is just a look. She needs to grow more and come into her own personality, you can tell she is a young with not a lot of real world experience IMO.

I’ve never been seriously attracted to a drag queen, but I’d have Ella as boyfriend. So cute out of drag!

In drag, he looks like Cheri Oteri and I can’t unsee it. I would be fine with him winning, but it will be Kitty or Krystal. Likely Krystal.

Short answer is yes, R125.

So do you think they'll be giving the crown to Ella next week?

by Anonymousreply 126November 19, 2021 4:07 AM

Looks like the crown is either Ella or Kitty's to win unless Vanity pulls out some miracle for the finale. Or Ru decides to be socially aware. As for this week though. Ella and Kitty both killed the roast with a slight edge going to Ella who seemed more at ease, more fluid in her delivery and just a bit more funny. Vanity and Krystal were simply not funny - a few chuckles here and there but not consistently funny like the other two. Wasn't really thrilled with the Goddess runway looks, although I give credit to Ella for NOT going with a gold ensemble and wearing blue which stood out against the other three.

by Anonymousreply 127November 20, 2021 4:11 AM

I agree R127, Vanity certainly will need to pull out a miracle next week to win considering she was eliminated this week.

Haha Vanity shows up uninvited to the final. I hope it goes to kitty but Ella would also be fine, I can see both of them doing well career wise in the UK. I can’t imagine what Crystal will do after this if she wins.

by Anonymousreply 129November 20, 2021 8:27 AM

I, of course, meant Krystal in the final three and a possible chance of winning. For all of Krystal's looks which were stunning, mixing up her name with Vanity's just goes to my impression that she doesn't really have much of a presence other than "youngest drag queen (with multiple plastic work)". Difficult to remember or name one challenge where Krystal was memorable. Can't even recall who she impersonated in Snatch Game. But I can see Ru awarding her the crown as a way of trying to win over the younger and up-and-coming generation of drag queens.

Vanity’s Scandalous lip sync is the most memorable thing this season.

She was stunning. Also memorable was Ru’s admiration for Choriza’s ‘meatiest tuck we’ve ever seen across all the shows’ then C’s delightful Spanish accented reply that she would be sure to keep it tidily tucked away ‘up her bum bum’ if necessary!

Ella's final runway and lip sync were sloppy, but she wasn't 100% because she had hurt her back the night before. I wanted Kitty to win, but I knew Krystal had it in the bag.

I think the show doesn't see individual queens they see types. Vivian was the bitch, Lawrence the comedy big girl, Krystal the young queen with potential. I honestly think they went, "we have Lawrence, we can't have Kitty." In the end it does not matter - all their booking fees will increase but they should thank god for KItty or that season would have truly sucked.

I really think Krystal was chosen as winner simply to boost RuPaul and the Drag Race brand, trying to market to a younger drag audience. Let's face, many of the queens featured are "old" to begin with and those from the early years of RPDR are aging. Need to keep drawing in new blood to keep the franchise going.

I preferred the Brit Crew in Season 1, R149. Especially the really tall one and the bald hairy one. I still think about the hairy one twerking in Cheryl Hole's product advertisement.

There is no Pit Crew for Canada's Drag Race Season 2, either. I really hope this isn't a newly retired feature of the program, in order to make it more sanitized to the masses. The Pit Crew on Down Under was one of the very few watchable parts of that particular iteration.

Kitty was great but Krystal was more consistent throughout. Kitty will also be a better alternative for All Stars in the future. I’m sure that weighs heavily on their decision making.

They can get rid of the Pit Crew for all I care. I’ll never understand why drag queens need to be connected to generically hot go go dancers. It’s even in all their music videos. I’m as big a dickpig as anyone else but I don’t watch Drag Race for the eye candy and I can go one hour without having to see someone’s cum gutters.
