Been chaining this recently, just finished series two. Anyone else a fan?
yes yes yes yes
gb is the resident dis drag race stan
new series soon right?
As a white cishet man, I'm worried that I'm sort of appropriating it by enjoying it? Like, I enjoy it on sincere level, I think the people on it are cool and funny, but is that wrong?
most of them are all essentially transmisogynistic and loads of the white ones are guilty themselves of stealing from queer and trans poc
as long as you're not doing latrice impressions for a laugh or anything
oh yeah lots of unrelated outright, blatant racism too (sharon needles)
although I kind of lost interest after the third series as it became a bit samey. SASHAY YOU STAY. SHANTAY AWAY!
Shantay, you stay - sashay away.
YOU FUCKED IT UP.
(don't even going to pretend that was deliberate)
don't even going to pretend
jasmine masters has such a tight lipsync and impersonations to pull out for snatch game, in my eyes she's the biggest threat to the others but that depends on whether or not they warm to her. trixie, kandy and jaidynn look like they'll be fan faves and miss fame has a huge youtube following.
what i don't want this season: reductive, ~spooky~ queens, bitter queens who think they're proper good at reading and shading but aren't and are actually just insecure and disliked, drag babies who aren't clued up on their references or ball culture
oh yeah - queens who can't sew and aren't creative isn't cute
I had no idea what they were talking about with shading for a while.
I thought it was some model programme or a dull making clothes fashiony programme. But I was so wrong, it is brilliant. A hidden gem.
esp in the earlier series
kathy griffin, ariana grande, mel b, kat dennings and alaska are gonna be guest judges. lady gaga and bianca rumoured judges for the snatch game episode :D
a few queens doing other queens for snatch game, as well as donatella versace, bjork and aubrey plaza,
have lost track of this but will def watch the snatch game epi =D
Demi Lovato, Olivia Newton-John, Jordin Sparks, Rebecca Romijn, Michael Urie, Merle Ginsberg, John Waters, Kat Dennings, Santino Rice, Lucian Piane, Kathy Griffin, Tamar Braxton, Ariana Grande, Mel B, Jessica Alba, Rachael Harris, Alyssa Milano and Isaac Mizrahi.
And not only that, but fashion expert Carson Kressley and TV personality Ross Mathews will be joining Michelle Visage at the table as full-time panelists.
i really don't like ross mathews :(
lucian being there confirms that there'll be a musical episode
over the moon tamar is on
john waters and kat dennings were in a film together so if they're together maybe that will be a film-related challenge
i was expecting david sedaris would a guest judge sooner or later cause he's obsessed with the show
I'm going to see thingy del rio who won it last year and I'm looking forward to it coz I watched some stuff on YouTube and she's dead good like. Going to Birmingham for it tho coz its my gf's mates bday so there's a thing eh
Might not make much sense if you've not seen the programme, though.
Dead funny. Planning on watching the series before hand tho
who has been watching this series? who is everyone stanning?
katya or ginger minj are the clear favourites right?
who is coming back next week? my guess/hope is trixie mattel or miss kasha davies
violet chachki's waist!
little richard snatch game!
apparently the task in 2 weeks is recreating classic john waters films!!!
this week made it dead clear that they want us to think katya is in the top three
ru is such a stirrer. omg the whole donetella thing. max has been on twitter etc. saying how she was edited wrongly and it was ru that made her sing and everything.
i don't have a favourite. although i really enjoy whenever miss fame talks about chickens.
i think a few of the challenges this season have turned out poor so they've tried to make up for it with the editing (the shakespeare one comes to mind).
untucked has been considerably mild too, nothing proper kicking off - i think that's because they're hovering around on a sofa 10 metres from the runway or something.
it's hilarious that they let kennedy win considering the shit alaska got in the kids tv show challenge in s5 and the pure anger at milk doing male ru on the runway last season. it was a proper genius move, but obvs they had to let ginger win too to cover their backs.
i'd like trixie to go back. she did some gigs/promo over here last month so i think they're (world of wonder/logo who have the contestants contracted post-drag race) pushing her.
i imagine katya and ginger would do well with a john waters mini challenge. maybe miss fame and violet wouldn't have much of a problem either, providing they're clued up on the source material and get the references - which will probably be out of pink flamingos, female trouble and hairspray, although i'd love for them to do serial mom or desperate living.
i thought the donatella thing was really embarrassing, considering it is such a basic obvious choice for a queen and also there is already a really famous impersonation of her (on snl). the best snatch games are usually those that aren't immediately obvious
think little richard works well because he did drag anyway and the impersonation of him was really over the top and feminised. pissed myself at him going "wrong note sugar!" when adele/ginger copied the "oooooh"
max can fuck off either way. ignoring the singing she blatantly pretended to have her corset snap to distract from negative comments. boring queen anyway
claims her corset snapped during her own critique and it was edited that she was trying to steal others' spotlights and ru made her sing songs from the wizard of oz when they were taking a break and she was sitting on the floor or something :D
not the best episode this week imo but the lip sync was 10/10
also felt like they were just planning on putting trixie back in for the whole episode however good that pair did
next week is the JOHN WATERS episode though. all my housemates are basic and probably don't know who he is so might do a binge on his films to warm up
if half the queens didn't know who he was either,Remember when none of them had head of Grey Gardens in season 5?
This season hasn't been great and I'm not even sure its the queens - the tasks have been largely boring & the catty editing has been more prevalent than ever. Excited about next week though!
some of them earlier this series hadn't heard of William Shakespeare so yes we might have some issues
amazing challenges this week
feel like no one (violet aside) did what i really wanted them to do (i.e. serve up kyary pamyu pamyu meets courtney love acid trip realness) on the 'use hello kitty items' challenge but the hello kitty head thing was GREAT and one of the best tasks they have had on this show for ages
really sad about katya :(((
I'm in San Fran with work at the moment and we watched it at a bar on the Castro. People literally booed the screen when Katya left.
Last night's challenge was great though. Really really great.
I think Ginger Minj is going to win because they've bee gearing up for a bigger queen to win for ages (ala Roxxy, Darien). I really really like Pearls aesthetic and I think Violet is actually pretty fucking solid though.
None of them are Alaska, Bianca, Adore, Raven or Jujubee though.
I know this show is the king of product placement but felt really off.
Can't believe Kennedy is still there.
to be fair if you are going to take the lip sync into account then you can't really argue against jumping off the runway into the splits
also the little richard thing was great
main issue for me at the moment is all the fawning over ginger minj who isn't particularly good at anything, wears the same clothes all the time and is constantly whining. literally got given the prize during the john waters task for being fat
In previous seasons by episode 6 I'm usually rooting for someone, this one not at all.
she got it for being edith massey reincarnated you philistine
ginger, pearl and violet top two
will definitely not be pearl cause of her attitute to ru etc.
A pal of mine is knocking out drag merchandise here:
Featuring Bianca Del Whatsit, as mentioned up thread.
Not sure I've posted enough to merit a JAG but it's on topic and I like them.
Bit disappointed to be honest. I'm going for Ginger but I'd like Pearl to win because she has the most interesting aesthetic / personality.
The final episode really highlighted how poor the final 3 are and how much Katya was missed. Did enjoy Kennedy's "well its between me and Ginger" speech before proceeding to get booted. Good riddance.
I take it this week is worth a watch?
violet sticking up for pearl and attacking what ginger and kennedy said on the mainstage, pearl and violet having a go at ginger and kennedy for being pageant queens, kennedy flips out and has a go and pearl storms out. it's not as dramatic as it could be, though.
i've been watching it on world of wonder's youtube channel, using an add-on called 'proxflow' for chrome.
that last episode was one of the shittest things i've ever seen. abysmal
when ru kept trying to push pearl to talk about her child abuse ://
i am team violet for the final but i think that might be down to me wanting to fuck her. definitely hope ginger doesn't win. just a bitch basically and the being shit at dancing / sewing is a complete put on (she's a dressmaker and choreographer irl)
With all her pop-psychology bullshit. Someone tell that bitch she ain't a psycho-therapist please.
"You're addicted to anxiety" <---- REALLY?!
Poor Pearl. She's obviously genuinely really been through it and it wasn't cute for her to be pushed in that way.
bewildering yet very watchable
and they reckoned that the show has more or less drained the available talent pool - as there's such a specific overlapping set of skills needed, lipsync thru dressmaking etc etc.
sorrrrrrrrt of inclined to agree?
I wonder if they will change the format in any way given the criticisms thrown at it this time round.
Also maybe the much rumoured UK version will emerge too?
Phi Phi seems to have developed some self awareness, which is nice. Still hate Roxxxy. What happened to Adore?
