Drag Race Canada season 2 - because we simply do not have enough Drag Race

I have nothing pithy, we just didn't have a thread.

by Anonymousreply 52November 27, 2021 5:22 PM

Hello? Is this thing on?

by Anonymousreply 1October 17, 2021 4:48 AM

I did get around to watching it.

My only thoughts:

Brooklyn visited the doctor and bought a new face between seasons.

They tried to convince us it was a good lip sync and that one queen could dance. She could not, it was not.

The queen who was not sent home gives me the creeps. I have no idea why and feel kind of bad about it but he makes my skin crawl. I was really hoping he went home.

Oceania (?) in drag looks exactly like Latrice Royal which cracks me up.

There doesn't seem to be much middle talent/looks. Just fairly nice and lower tier. The asian guy (?) has long super sharp eyeteeth which makes his smile look cool.

This really is Drag Race overload back to back with UK. I can barely remember any of the queens from the premiere.

by Anonymousreply 4October 17, 2021 6:24 AM

Océane is like Latrice's distant French-African [italic]cousine[/italic] who just got out of a stint in the mental home.

Eve 6000 is going to be the cringe queen of the season. Her tear-free attention-hog sobbing after being called safe was camp, mawma.

by Anonymousreply 6October 17, 2021 8:46 AM

Yeah the crying was insufferable and I cringed for her, let the bottom queens get the attention, its their moment, its a shame she wasn't in the bottom and I bet Ru thought regretted it also. Also the third large girl to hurt her knee...

I had a good cackle once I realized Stephanie's entrance outfit was the Jollibee mascot.

I cackled when they announced that one of the prizes is "a sickening supply of cosmetics from Shoppers Drug Mart." On the other hand, their $100,000 grand prize is tax-free.

R9 Cackle all you want, but Shoppers Drug Mart's Beauty Boutiques sells some relatively high end cosmetics for the girls: Nars, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Dior, Urban Decay, Yves Saint Laurent, Lancôme, etc. It's not just Maybelline and Cover Girl.

Thanks Rescue Chick! I was the poster in the UK thread who asked about a Canada thread.

Of course, whoever was in charge of the captions spelled 'Colombian' with a u instead of the second o.

I’m not going to watch it, as I am already dragged out and am saving my excitement for International All Stars and All Stars Winners but I will watch Nina Bonina Browns recaps.

by Anonymousreply 13October 18, 2021 4:34 PM

I like it fine so far. I am a sucker for Canadian versions of reality tv such as Big Brother, Top Chef and Amazing Race. For some reason I find most Canadians interesting yet unlikable. .

R13 NBB spends over half of her videos complaining about fans who don't watch her boring video game liveplays. Ugh. I wish she realized her fans don't care!!!

by Anonymousreply 15October 19, 2021 2:33 AM

I guess they're keeping Eve 6000 around for the drama. We're only two episodes in, and already I've had sufficient.

by Anonymousreply 16October 22, 2021 4:24 PM

Wow, that "Rusical" set a new low. Which is really saying something. The story, the singing, the dancing. Totally cringeworthy.

by Anonymousreply 17October 22, 2021 4:27 PM

Aw, I liked it—it was certainly better than Shakesqueer and Glamazonian Airways. The runways were some of the best I've ever seen.

Most people find the opposite.

I haven't been able to watch an entire season of either UK or Canada so far. It's been too much Drag Race for me, combined with the regular seasons, the All Stars seasons, the awful Secret Celebrity season... decisions had to be made. Cuts had to happen

by Anonymousreply 20October 22, 2021 5:49 PM

Haven't watched any drag race for six months so this is fresh to me, so far it's good, but this new slogan "Racers start your engines, and may the best drag queen win" is lame. Where's the pun, or the fun in that? Are they going to say this for every iteration of drag race now?

by Anonymousreply 21October 26, 2021 1:22 AM

Correct, R21. They've said that in all the iterations (US, UK, Canada and Down Under) since the beginning of last year (basically any season taped after US S13).

You can thank Gottmik for that.

by Anonymousreply 22October 29, 2021 5:33 AM

Holy fuck, the never ending "acting" challenge tonight is probably the most painful drag race bit of any season, even topping Draglexa snoozefest from last week's UK episode.

Sells the same kind of thing you would find at HBC. I don't know what the American equivalent is.

Good for the one who won this week, I thought she’d be an early out for sure. Not bad looking out of drag either. Wink.

by Anonymousreply 25October 29, 2021 9:45 PM

Adriana's runway was gorgeous. I think she and Pythia are the ones to watch.

by Anonymousreply 26October 29, 2021 11:52 PM

Does anyone else just fast forward to the final runway and challenge reveal? I can’t stand hearing the bullshit sob stories each episode.

by Anonymousreply 27October 30, 2021 9:52 PM

I sure do, R27. Either I fast forward or tune out while doing something else during the workroom segment right before RuPaul's runway walk.

It's getting increasingly obvious that production tells one of the queens to ask a 'thought-provoking' question to the room, and every week there has to be a personal sob story shared with the group. I'm not a big fan of emotionally manipulative grief porn so it really is my least favorite part of a typical Drag Race episode (and overall, it's second only to the awful Childhood Photos on the Runway that they do every time when it's down to just four of them).

by Anonymousreply 28October 31, 2021 11:54 PM

According to Reddit lore, the queen with the biggest sob story of the week goes home.

by Anonymousreply 29October 31, 2021 11:55 PM

That was one of the worst episodes ever. This show really sucks. UK isn't all that great, but it seems brilliant next to this crap. Too bad, as I didn't mind the first season. (Even WITH Jeffrey something-something.)

by Anonymousreply 30November 1, 2021 4:46 AM

I appreciate that Canada is trying to do its own thing without Ru, and it's better than Drag Race Down Under.

by Anonymousreply 31November 3, 2021 1:43 AM

Canada really has a small bench of talented drag performers. The quality of the girls is about the same as the current US queens and they’re already in season 14. The good queens have come and gone.

by Anonymousreply 32November 4, 2021 2:16 PM

Connor was pretty restrained. I think he said two or three lines the entire judging panel.

by Anonymousreply 33November 6, 2021 4:57 AM

I'm enjoying this season. As a Canadian, the quality of the show is pretty much par for the course when it comes to Canadian television. Yeah, it's shit compared to Drag Race US or UK, but what can you expect with Canadian production values?

I can't say that it's particularly GOOD, but something about seeing so much Canadiana in a drag race context tickles me. Little moments like Synthia Kiss dressing as the ICONIC Jeanne Beker is what make me enjoy the show.

I'm excited to see Bif Naked in the next episode.

Brooke Lynn can be really funny in a dry way. I laughed when she said before Snatch Game (which was terrible, by the way), "... and may the least shitty one win!"

The wrting for the host's quips is truly awful. The writers for the American version and the UK version is up and down, but this is horrible.

Weird country meets rap girl group challenge. I guess inspired by little Nas? I want Kendall to go next shes a snooze fest.

I'm glad Eve 6000 is gone. Her constant whimpering was too much, don't these queens ever feel embarrassed crying and wailing on TV? I just couldn't imagine doing something like that.

Kendall Gender (stupid name) is boring, even with her drug addiction story she still comes off as rather bland.

Seeing them all bloviate about their pronouns and identity this episode was embarrassing. All of them are way too old to be doing this pronoun thing. Apparently being gay isn't good enough, you have to be more labels than just that. The narcissism put on display by some of these queens is quite astounding.

by Anonymousreply 47November 24, 2021 10:25 PM

That’s why I fast forward to the runway R47. Can’t be bothered with the back stories and sympathy angles. I miss the good old days when the queens would talk shit about each other.

So unfair on the other girl what kimora did on that lip sync. She really couldn’t shine when you had her there in your face the whole time. She did well not to loose her cool.
