RuPaul's Drag Race Season 14 OFFICIAL Thread: YASSSSSSSSSS KWEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNN!

[quote] I didn't see an official thread - or really any thread - for Season 14.
1) Drag Race never ends now and so it's not an event. Not only to seasons follow one another without any break; they now also overlap one another. I'm sure I am not the only one who has Drag Race fatigue.
2) The show was moved to Paramount+, which is a premium network. Those of us who already have been coerced to paying to subscribe to WOW specifically for Drag Race should have access since we are already paying, but nope. I admire RuPaul's industriousness, but the supply has outpaced my demand.

I liked it more than I’ve liked the last few premieres. I hope they keep the talent show for the premiere moving forward. That way we can see who is ACTUALLY talented before they all start milking their sob stories and excuses.
I’m interested in Kornbread, Willow, and Bosco. Kerri Colby is pretty and has some charm but I can tell already she’s going to be the one fans overhype and act defensive towards if she doesn’t win every goddamn challenge.

I haven't watched it because of Drag Race oversaturation and fatigue. But I might take a look if the episodes are more varied as they used to be and not just a bunch of same-y song-and-dance numbers. I'll check in here to find out. I've really come to detest the episode-long choreographed dances. I can't understand why they settled on those being 85 percent of the whole show. What happened to the funny modeling shoots, the challenges to involve passers-by on the streets and in clubs, the commercials that they have to write themselves, etc.? The low budget days were the most enjoyable to watch.

It's been done.
It was basically that episode when Pearl said to RuPaul, "Do I have something on my face?"
Now, that may not sound like "Bitch, you're old enough to be our grandfather!" But if you re-watch it, and this clip is like in a bunch of Youtube videos so it's pretty easy to find, you'll get it.

I’d say check out the premiere, R25. I agree with you on almost every point and I ended up enjoying it more than I expected. A queen actually goes home and it’s not a stupid group verse shit where they talk about being a supreme and snatching the crown. It’s a talent show, so there’s some nice variation.
It’s not amazing but the cast for the premiere is pretty decent and not too too derivative.

Agree with R35 and R36.
Willow is pretty odd, and I like it. People like her—Detox, Alyssa, Jinkx, other eccentrics—are exactly the reason I initially appreciated Drag Race. They challenge conventions and make me tilt my head like a dog as I try to figure out what exactly they are.
As pretty and passable and talented as people like Violet and Gigi may be, I DON'T REALLY CARE DO U? The production company is called "World of Wonder," and I want talented curiosities, not talented blow-up dolls.
Drag Race is a sideshow act. Imagine paying for a sideshow ticket and walking into the tent to expect bearded ladies and two-headed goats and finding a bunch of pretty young pole dancers. That's the transition the show has undergone and I don't appreciate it.

By bending over backwards to accommodate the transanity, drag race has lost the thread. Because drag is supposed to be about dressing cross-gender. If you identify as a female, why the fuck are you doing drag?

This cast, so far, seems to be scraping the barrel a bit. I felt the past two regular seasons were inching close to jumping the shark, but this one may actually bring it over the edge. Hoping the next half of the cast is an improvement.
The show has let itself be a victim of cancel culture and the fan mob mentality about being inclusive. It should be focused on drag performers and their talents and less on other things, lest it soon become merely a "cosplay" competition that just anyone can enter. I imagine it will become that eventually, since trans contestants, women and straight men are now included, which pretty much ignores what drag has traditionally been and makes the core concept of the show irrelevant and renders it impotent. Expect the rabid fans to regret pushing things in this direction once it finally implodes.

R50 I never bought that whole “I still appreciate Ru” bull that William pulls. I am sure it is genuine to an extent; unlike someone like Pearl who seems to only have gotten into drag for the show, William knows how hard it was for working actors and drag queens pre Drag Race.
With that in mind however, he seems to over do it. Every episode of race chaser is him complementing her dress and hair, and then insulting Ru. Seems like he is trying really hard to milk this “I am not petty I give credit where credit is due” shit.

It really has peaked. Since "drag is for everyone" there's not much talent left in the well. It's been saturated to blandness. Very few queens have made a success off the show and none have reached Rupaul's level of fame. These queens have to wait on Drag Con to hawk their overpriced merchandise or do a stint on the plethora of trashy reality tv shows out there like Big Brother.

R88 Of course 200 queens will not all be able to have the same level of fame and success. At least 31 queens have over a million followers on IG, and 6 have two million. Those numbers alone come with a lot of opportunities. And that is just on metric. Many of the Queens have been in fashion shows and modeled for magazines such as Vogue, especially Fame. Raven got a job doing Ru’s makeup and now her own show. Willam and Shangela were in A Star Is Born, while Shangela, Eureka and Bob have their HBO show. Kim Chi has a good selling make up lane, Plastique is huge on Tik Tok. Courtney has a talk show. Many Queens have albums and books.
So, none of the Queens are A list, but many have found success in a pretty small field. This show literally made it possible for there to be more than one famous drag queen at a time.

As much as Trixie annoys me when she doesn't have Katya by her side to round her out, Trixie is definitely in the running for Ru's spot. She won't get there because really she doesn't have the charisma Ru does. Playing to the young ones does not equal charisma. Katya is far more interesting, but is too over the heads of the now disgustingly coveted 14 year old demo. I am sure Katya is just fine with that.
Bimini needs to get her ass over to the US. She is likely the most talented one out of the bunch but if she wants more exposure, it needs to be here.

I think it's now common for the queens to fear the backlash that being bitchy will bring you on social media.
With Jambalaya and Kornbread in last week's group, I was hoping for Fried Okra or Chess Pie with this group.

RuPaul on tiktok. Lots and lots of surgery, fillers and facelifts - and he still looks like 61. The way they film his face is now beyond insane. He should never have had a chin reduction. It ruined both his drag face and his man face. It's very noticeable somewhere around Season 9. I doubt that he worries about it much. But what a weird thing to do in your mid fifties? He looked better before. His last weak "dancing" - ugh. No calves and no hips and totally geriatric. The back up boys are hot. Cover your legs and don't move RP. Stick to what works. RuPaul disappointed patrons in bars for most of the 1990s and half of the aughts. He travelled the gay bars of the world as RuPaul - the Drag Queen. He's a terrible performer. And a pain in the Ass. Door charged customers were instructed not to approach him with less than a 20 dollar bill. And he would lose any LSFYL. His great smile. Hides many things.
Old bitch still has a good TV show though.
Alicia Keys is not a ball of fun or wit, but still so beautiful and serene. Give her the Lena Horne biopic please. FALLINg.
This weeks episode was very boring. Angeria and Maddy were bright. Angeria is not going to win. Jaida Essence Hall already did it better and with much more beauty.
Maddy is not the first straight drag queen. How stupid.
Its Gottmik who should never been allowed on the show. A woman posing as a 'man' playing a woman.

Off topic - but Miss Fame continues to excel in the upper stratosphere of fashion. Drag Race told him he wasn't a performer or a real Drag Queen. She isn't. Miss Fame is a model and a muse. Seems all his dreams came true.
It's a good cast this year. Cornbread knows how to proportionize & perform. But she's not a locked in winner yet. Ru and the fan base are in love with Willow Pill too. The right two people went home the first episodes. Could be fun from here.

This is interesting...I guess I don't remember season 13 at all! I remember the one with Gigi and Jaida, and nothing else.
...OK, I just looked it up. I remember now. Looking at the rundown, the only 'nastiness' I remember is Utica's mean roast performance. I do remember people here hated both Gottmik because she is transgender and Rosé (because he's showoffy?). It seems like pretty much everyone loved Symone, and nothing about Symone was 'nasty' that I can recall.
Anyway, too many seasons too soon. It's all a blur.
Since season 12 not even two years ago, there's been UK2 (or is it three?) Italy, Netherlands 2, Spain, Canada, All Stars 94, 13, now 14. Or maybe we're at 18 now. 20?
Who could keep track?

I don't find the straight-guy thing shocking at all.
I was shocked when I first watched Drag Race and saw that Tyra had a son. That means he had sex with a woman and therefore may have been bi despite being so effeminate. And I can't think of anyone in particular, but I feel like other contestants have said they have kids. So from the beginning, I never thought of it as exclusively the domain of gay and trans people.
And it seems less strange to me for the show to cast a straight man who dresses as a drag queen than women who dress as drag queens—which makes NO sense at all. Yet, Drag Race has always had makeover challenges that turn women into...female impersonators; Drag U was dedicated to turning women into...female impersonators; and the celebrity show featured lots of women celebs being turned into...female impersonators, complete with (gasp!) wigs and makeup and heels and dresses!
Drag queens are men in dresses, so the gay/straight thing seems irrelevant to me. The woman-in-drag thing seems to be jumping the shark to me, though, unless we're talking about Rachel Maddow or Amy Walter types.

The only thing I didn't like about Angeria - and some drag queen in general - is when they do such sharp contouring on the nose that is appears as if they have a beak. Maddy was smart in the talent competition by playing the guitar rather than doing another lip sync. It made her stand out although, as the judges' comments said, it would have been better if she had played up to the camera. Just one though, I'd love for Ru to come into the Werk Room and announce, "This week, we're having a talent show. But there's a twist - you CANNOT do a lip sync routine. Save that for your elimination". Finally, the Pit Crew is back! Seems like they've been gone forever.

Drag queens are gay men who do drag, that's where the term comes from, so it does seem rather odd for a straight man to call himself a drag queen isn't he saying he's gay as well? I'm sure Maddy is gay. A straight man who plays dress up is a transvestite.

An NPR writer has entered RuPaul's "the library is open" competition without being asked.
[quote] The most egregious rip-off comes in the form of the third track [of RuPaul's recent album Mamaru], "Smile," a song that could be mistaken for a karaoke version of Charli XCX's "anthems" if I heard it from outside of the club. To say the song is exactly the same would be an insult to Charli: It's like if Mamaru's producers heard how i'm feeling now and tried to recreate it from memory after a blackout-inducing hit of poppers. Everything feels lifted, from the overprocessed Auto-Tune to the jittery synth riff in the chorus. Had "Smile" came out in 2019, I would've thought it came with a Dylan Brady production credit — however, in 2022, the scene has already moved on, giving "Smile" the mark of bleak corporate reappropriation. It's a reminder that everything that made the OG hyperpop scene interesting and different is quickly being swallowed up and watered down for a larger audience, particularly one that embodies hegemonic, straight-approved forms of LGBTQ expression.

R128, Drag has been around much longer than Shakespeare and since you're straight maybe you should know that Shakespeare was also queer. The term "drag queen" was not originated by Shakespeare nor used in his time, it was coined by gay men who do drag, to refer to other gay men who do drag. "Queen" meaning homosexual (typically a feminine gay man) and "drag" the feminine garb he wears. I don't know where you're getting this idea that it doesn't have anything to do with sexuality identity. Ever heard of the Pansy Craze....

If you grew up around the Korean and Vietnamese lady boys of my city - you would realize just how wrong your assumptions are R147. Petite pretty men with no money or prospects often worked the streets and had sex with men for money. Many of these ladyboys were straight or bisexual, or like a lot of hookers - a bit beyond sex. The money is not bad for a hard worker and some went home to their wives. The ladyboys - not just their clients.
The idea that all men who dress as women are gay is really weird to me. Displays great ignorance. But I suspect that most of those posts come from the central loon of the Drag Race threads. He's also a terrible RACIST who hates overweight Queens. All of them. We SEE you.
You obviously have never lived much outside your small little environment. Town/basement. Why do you think Ru ever recorded a song called Ladyboys?

He would be understandably self-conscious as the misfit in the group, just as the one gay person, Asian person, black person would.
RuPaul is the one who brought it up in the workroom and then that directed all the attention toward that issue.
He did mention it in confessional interviews that aired before RuPaul brought up that he is the first straight contestant, but confessional interview comments are responses to producers' questions—so again, producers brought it up, he answered, and because it is novel, they are going to make it a primary narrative of the season.
This many seasons into a show this formulaic, "firsts" like the first HIV-positive contestant, people with other illnesses (Yvie's Ehlers-Danlos, etc.), the first transgender one, the first trans man, the first straight man always are going to be staples because they can be positioned as 'brave,' and they offer lots of fodder for interesting conversations about personal feelings and societal concerns. They also offer great potential for a villain to identify themself by criticizing the 'other,' and then an arc that shows the two making up.

Not huge on any of the queens this season. Willow and Angeria (the name sounds like a disease of some kind to me, but I will get past it) stick out but the rest all seem like middling variations on queens we have already seen compete on past seasons. Hope it gets better as it goes along.
As for Maddy, I don't really care about him competing, but it smells a bit of Ru trying to cross all of her T's and derail the complaints from the vocal segment of fans who continue to harp on the show not being "inclusive" enough. Makes me wonder if Ru will, after this, go back to casting the show however he pleases having assuaged the SJW fans.
Someone's point about Dame Edna , above, is a good one, regarding straight queens. Ru did have a "straight" one compete already in the UK on season 1, although I think that contestant (Scaredy Cat) eventually said he was bi.
Still... I think the show was better when it focused more on the traditional interpretation of drag, which is gay men doing female impersonation and female illusion. Opening it up to the broader interpretation s of what drag can be dilutes it and makes it less special. As I said many comments above, it might as well become a cosplay competition that anyone can enter, otherwise.

My only problem with Maddie is where was the charisma, where was the humor? His personality was far too subdued for a drag queen. He had a perfect chance to really impress Ru in their little talk but he gave her nothing, you gotta know how to make Ru laugh. As the first straight contestant that gives him lots of opportunity for unmined humor.
So far he seems like the straight contestant, and you don't want to come across like a stick in the mud. Hopefully it was jitters and he will relax and liven up.

The show edits and builds storylines as they need to. Whether people choose to accept it or not, the same is true for ALL reality shows. The straight guy will go far I'm sure. He's the "hook" this season unless they orchestrate an "I can't deal with all the gay drama" exit for him.

Maddy was not cast accidentally. Sheesh. Of course he's the "hook." The completely obnoxious Gottmik is co-hosting Fashion Photo Review this season and has already done an episode of the Pit Stop. She's the previous hook. I don't mind that she has a vagina - I just can't stand her stupid catchphrases and beyond annoying CACKLE. Or her makeup. The hormones are not kind to her voice.
Crystal Methyd really annoyed me. He ended up top 3 by playing a long con of showing he could do many things AND still remain truly weird. He and Jaida are great friends - finally doing very well from their lockdown season. Crystal finished in third place - where Heidi belonged. She won a challenge too. And fucked up in front of Whoopie. That's the week that Crystal won her only challenge. The cat litter dance. Was funny.
Season 12 remains the best Drag Race season since Season 5. What a cast. The final six were all stellar. Including Sherry Pie.

That episode of Pit Stop with Gotmik was hard to get through. I don’t find her funny or clever and she laughs at everything. It may be a nervous laugh, but it makes her hard to watch. I didn’t find her as annoying when she was on Trixie’s channel for an episode. I think Trixie is good at managing others when talking to them and getting the best out of them.

I think Gottmik is also annoying the way she laughs at everything. She is a woman, like many others, who has adhered herself to gay and drag culture out of a sense of fun and to have a place to belong, when the rest of the world seems to dull or unaccepting to them.
Women like this have all appear to have uniformly decided they need to telegraph 'fabulous', even though it is phony as shit. You are not a gay man, and this is not your circus, lady. We got your number.

I watched a few interview clips with Ru for the television archive (or something like that) yesterday and I still like and respect him.
I think the reason he ends up hated is that he is just forthright and honest.
He declined reality shows for several years because he didn't want to do a mean-spirited show, and then he was told Drag Race would aim to showcase the art of drag and he was sold on it. He said what he didn't expect is how moving the stories of so many contestants would be, and he should have anticipated that. Yada yada his Oprahspeak.
He sounds like he really respects the young misfits he casts. I think he does. Listening to his podcast reveals he has forgotten about many and he can't remember what winners were with what seasons and I don't understand why the poor recall of a lifelong drug addict is regarded as a character flaw. He has a shitty memory.
Yes, he told someone that "what you say only matters when the camera is rolling." That's good advice and direction for a reality show. It's not offensive.
RuPaul didn't anticipate Drag Race would have so much "heart" because he was thinking about doing an entertainment project, not adopting 16 drag queens every year. He is a hardworking entertainment professional and not a lovable sentimental person, and the advice he gives is life advice that shouldn't be construed as "I now accept responsibility for you emotionally and financially until the day you die."
He has the same birthday as my mother and she was similar. Actually, she could be sentimental, but mostly she was so straightforward and matter of fact that it alarmed most people who didn't know her well, but she always had good intentions and she was almost always right about everything. She didn't have an opinion about every single thing, but she was expert in some areas and she would take offense if you disregarded her direction because she knew she knew better. Maybe it's because of the birthday coincidence, but I interpret RuPaul the same way: sharp mind, big heart, hard shell, good intentions, cutting delivery.

Oh, my sides!
RuPaul is a driven, pot smoking, self centered, old bitch whose artistic sensibility peaked in 1975 while watching reruns of Hee Haw and Laugh In.
"RuPaul" the Supermodel of the World was entirely the creation of Mathu Andersen. Before that, Ru was a messy NYC queen/go go boy in bad and sloppy drag (and before that, a messy Atlanta punk queen who barely did drag).
She can't paint or style herself. She's a terrible performer in person (ask anyone who ever say her do a live show 'back in the day') and a cunt to work with (ask anyone who ever booked her).
All that said, she's hugely charismatic and a great star and the show was originally a smart piece of work.
But, she ain't that nice. It's hard to be very nice and climb that ladder.

Maddy seems heavily on the Aspergers spectrum and for some reason, a ton of them are into gender play.
June was a nasty piece of work saying that shit that Orion about how she was sad she came back. June reminds me of a lower-rent Monique Heart and is just as delusional. None of her outfits fit or looked good on her because in her head she looks like Angeria. She doesn’t.
I don’t mind if Maddy has a few episode grace period. Having a straight person in the room makes me for dynamics that are more interesting than her drag and it is a TV show at the end of the day.
I was totally impressed by Kornbread and how nurturing and compassionate she was with Willow. She’s my sentimental favorite now.

As always, the cast is too big for me to really grasp who most of them are, and this thousand-outfit fashion show was mind scrambling. But like everyone else, I've zeroed in on Willow as the one who really stands out and above the crowd. Likewise the one with the nose although I can't think of her name—the Heidi-Jaida hybrid.
Maddy, too, of course, but Maddy is lacking in stage presence/charisma, and I'm certain I'm not thinking that just because RuPaul said so. Maddy doesn't have 'it' and is staying repressed. I'm tempted to think of a reason for that but I won't go there because it's irrelevant to the show.
I didn't think it would happen, but another cast has engaged me. The endless and constant seasons and the same formula every time is beyond tired, but very good casting this time IMO thanks to the standouts.
It's really weird how Spain was also outstanding but all the other iterations of late could not hold my attention. I tried with every one of them and glazed over.
Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. RuPaul should put a halt to new seasons for two or three years and make us actually want to watch more IMO. I really think the audience would end up looking forward to more instead of begrudgingly watching out of a feeling of obligation and occasionally breathing a sigh of relief when it turns out to be watchable.
Ru and crew could spend the interim years recording seasons and just bottle them up.

This week would have been good for a multi-contestant LPFYL as there were a few looks which I thought weren't great. As someone mentioned above, it was too many looks to process at one time, forgetting who wore what as well as some looks simply being forgettable in themselves. I think what killed June in the Lip Sync was the wig reveal (too early in the competition), lmissing beats when trying to remove her dress while dancing, losing her shoes and not knowing/forgetting some of the lyrics (having her back to the judges while performing).

I don't agree with that at all. Willow is a standout, and Angeria also a standout but less so because she is similar to past standouts.
Willow is a callback to what made early seasons great. She's got a fun and off-kilter personality and style. She's bizarre looking, which is a little strange at first and then becomes endearing and makes a stamp on you. She reminds me of the weirdos like Jinkx, Detox, et al.
But speaking of Jinkx, we will never get another Jinkx or Chi Chi or Miz Cracker again, will we? They were all dirt poor, and now the show requires that contestants spend tens or thousands on wardrobe to compete. I don't like it. There is some appeal to the fashion parades, but I can take them or leave them. I want more talent and don't need as much extravagance.

I adore Willow and Kornbread- I hope Willow gave Kornbread $1000 to have helped her out with the wedding outfit that the judges loved. Bosco didn't stand out for me this episode.

R255 Spain was a really great season. Perhaps one of the best foreign seasons. I think part of what made it great were the judges. Supremme was a really great, warm host. The Javis & Ana Locking were all great and gave good feedback, critiques, and seemed to really love the girls. My theory for why the judges are great is because they're "artists." The Javis are actors/directors and Ana is a fashion designer, so they know what it's like to be creative/judged and they were SERIOUS about judging, not there to make quips, etc.
Sometimes I just think... who the fuck is Michelle (aside from being Ru's BFF) to judge people?!? The HILARIOUS Ross Matthews? Jesus. I actally think that Carson Kressley is the best judge on the American judge. No wonder why Shannel quit the show in season 1, I'd quit if I were judged by Santino, too.

Well the US judges don't seem to matter at all in the end. It comes down to what RuPaul or the producers want. US judges don't get a vote.
And yeah, the judges can make or break it as we saw with Canada. I was so annoyed with all the judges except the Jamaican woman in season one giving crits like, "I don't like blue. I would have worn another color. I don't really like that length of skirt, either, and I wouldn't wear that wig, although nothing is wrong with it; it's just not my style." Totally useless and subjective. Michelle has done that with the color green, which is stupid, but RuPaul ignores her judgments when he decides who stays or goes so it doesn't matter.

Just like they don't tell the "girls" to pad anymore - they can't tell Maddy to CINCH!! They're all men, straight or otherwise. If he wants to do drag - CINCH that fucking HOGBODY. And his clothes are terrible.
I really like Kornbread but she's not as polished a Drag Queen or performer as the constantly robbed Eureka. Korn is a nicer person for sure - but Eureka was the most gifted big girl contestant the show has seen. She could and did do it all. Won everything but the crown. I said what I said. Proportionize.
Willow Pill appears to be in deep kidney failure/organ rejection - But in Drag, she's fantastic and unique and humorous and C U T E. There's your winner. I dig her. But I really like Lady C and Angie and Daya too.
Kerry, Bosco, Orion, and Deja are good at what they do - and they all remind me of other queens who have been on the show. Angeria too of course. But she's too amazing to ignore. No way she doesn't make top 4.
Jorgeous is a not little number in Drag. Ru was right - he was just born for it. He's a homely street urchin as a guy - and a sexy spitfire with perfect petite proportions as a woman. Fantastic energy and appeal.
I wasn't sold on Willow Pill the first episode. But now that I've got it - I see the future. Or Crown miss eye popping Kornbread. She's sassy and soulful. Beautiful spirit.

Ru would have slayed if he'd gone into the Jessie-on-caffeine monologue from Saved By The Bell.

Violet Chachki is insanely perfect and still THAT bitch. Brutal and totally unafraid of the RPDR franchise. She gives real critiques. Funnier. Wittier. Concise and Confident. Bitch knows her fashion as is as big a fan of Drag Race as ALL the suck up alumni. Violet is even gracious enough to make Monet feel she has a right to be there.

R287 Ru is probably too old to be familiar with Saved By the Bell (even though he did a 90210 thing with Jennie and Tori...), but it would be a really fun episode.
Two teams, each one would have to act out a memorable scene like "I'm so excited...I'm so...SCARED!"
Mark-Paul and Elizabeth could be guest judges.
And the final lip sync could be this:

I didn't really register the severity of Willow's illness. She has cystinosis, which is life threatening, and she had to have a liver transplant at age 14. People with it often don't live to age 50 and blindness is common. Her unusual features are caused by the illness. The poor thing. She was already my favorite, but now I really want her to win.

Your pity should make her win R290! The fandom loves her too - because they never like the attractive girls. Or the fat ones. Or the black ones. That said - Willow Pill is also one to watch.

Ru loves the damage above all else. So Willow it is.

Reading all that about Willow makes me love her even more. She’s my fave by far.

Willow Pill had a kidney transplant actually. I'm rooting for her as well.

Forget the sympathy vote. I'm rooting for Willow just because of her fashion sense and her joy in doing drag. Very unique performer.

I loved all of Willow’s looks at the ball. Such a well-deserved win. She’s also a total sweetheart.

Yes, Willow for the win. In a season of basic bitches, half baked performers, and pageant queens, she stands out. A true, twisted, funny original.

Did you see how everyone was genuinely happy for her win?

I think they are setting Willow up like a Jinx. Kornbread said she is the only one who talks to her so I can see the other queens talking about "why is she getting the wins" etc.

R300, that's the narrative that they're giving us, but I suppose that some take themselves too seriously, while Willow lets us in on the joke, and she does it with so much fun. Much like Yvie's year.

I wanted Violet to win in S7 and am glad my support of her has been vindicated ala these past two seasons' ball reviews, R288. It's time for her to lead the CUNT RENAISSANCE of drag because I like my drag queens to be absolute cunts.
They were not gowns and they were not bridal and there are BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS IN THE JUNGLE. Thank you, Violet.
Also Violet is now officially in the first half of winners in this franchise which is crazy. She's basically old school at this point.

R301 Willow and Yvie are drag sisters and both have serious chronic illnesses that will almost certainly shorten their lifespans significantly. I think that goves them more joie de vivre.

Why the hell would anyone want to watch fifty thousand outfits from people we don't even know yet? What a strange choice, Ru.
As I said after the first ep? The only two that interest me are Willow Pill and Kornbread.
|by Anonymous||reply 309||January 27, 2022 5:53 AM|
And they weren't very good outfits either. It was way overkill. And the concepts were bizarre. Animal print wedding dress? To call this a "ball" was an insult to balls.
Violet got it right, as usual. She's that bitch. I fucking love her.

It was definitely one of the worst balls ever on drag race. Possibly the worst.

Watch the whole video, unless you hate Priyanka. She and Bob are two of the smartest and more direct queens out there. They trash the show more than the outfits. BoB has really come into himself by going rogue. I'm a fan. I know Priyanka and a smarter cuter funnier guy you will not meet. He's like Adore - but with a brain and talent.
Otherwise - just go to the 3:00 mark and watch Bob's face and response when Priyanka asks BoB if RuPaul is 'nice'. Priceless.

My boyfriend and I laughed when Kerri found out Maddy was straight and insinuated that she had a chance. Generally straight men don’t go for women with shriveled flaccid trans dicks bigger than their own.

Before reading the comments in that Reddit post (which apparently confirm that Maddy thought she was trans when she was younger), my first thought after seeing that collage was "is this a burgeoning 'girldick / feminine penis' situation?".
