RuPaul's Drag Race Thread

PostPosted by akui » Tue Aug 30, 2016 7:05 pm

Hello gorgeous beasts, the drag race has always been a popular topic in the tv show thread, now it's back with the new season, i thought maybe it deserves its own thread.

So chat away bitches, and remember, if you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?

Okay, this seems pretty dead and I was going to make an enthusiastic post episodes ago but I forgot, better late than never... It's kind of late to say this but:
Sad that Adore left :sadgarbage:

I'm kind of hoping for Alyssa (she really grew on me) or Alaska to win
people really hate Alaska after the last episode and she sent Tatianna home, idk if it's an overreaction but I agree that I'm kind of sick that Roxxy seems to have been in the bottom for the last few weeks now, I could say the same about Katya but she's an unmovable fan favorite no matter what she does

Most recent ep spoiler

Everyone seems to be upset that roxxy is still there and super over it, me included lol. I really wanted Alaska to go home because she was being SUCH a brat!! "I need to make final 4. I need to." Like wining and crying and being a little bitch about it. Everyone seems to think that she's going to win but I'm really hoping she doesn't, I'm #TeamKatya !!! I really like Katya she's adorbs :garbage: I would also be happy with Detox winning. Alaska lost major points with me tho so I no longer support her lol.

I'm the exact same:

I'm disgusted Alyssa has gone home, she was my favorite Queen and despite all the fucking bullshit of Rolaskatox she was too gracious for them
It's weird how Alaska went from one of my favorites to suddenly one of the worst, how did one of the most commonly liked queen become such a villain in the space of a week? wtf?
Seriously judging Detox, dont even want her to win at this point, at all, and I doubted Roxxy's ability to get this far after being in the bottom for so.long.
Nothing is scared anymore, except for Katya, who must win :stan:

I agree with the both of you. And that gif makes me laugh, it's so fitting to the competition right now :lol:. I didn't like how Alaska reacted to being in the bottom 3 at all but I guess it's a good thing that she ended up there cause she was getting a bit too confident in my opinion and too much confidence is never a good thing. As the both of you I'm gutted that Alyssa was eliminated and not Roxxxy who's been saved by Detox and Alaska way too many times. I didn't know for who I was rooting for at the beginning but now I know that I want Katya to win.

For context on the public vote so far, I stole this from reddit:

Also I'm loving this Roxxy meme on reddit at the moment:
They won't let her go home and she's trapped :rofl:

SPOILER: Oh wow, I'm surprised so many people are #TeamKatya !! When the show started, it seemed like everyone was team alaska, or just thought alaska was going to win and accepted it, i don't think people thought katya would get this far and are now totally behind her because she'd fuckin awwwweeeeeeesome. also I thought detox was more popular so thats interesting. oh well!

and yeah the roxxy memes are hilarious hahaha. she basically wanted to go home im surprised her friends werent sending her home as a favor :lol:

Dat adore's face lol

I'm totally #teamkatya as well, she is insanely talented and deserves to win in season 7(?), much more deserving than whoever won that season (who?), i think a lot of people cheering for her for the same reason. Also Katya is relatively new, queens like alaska or detox are beloved yes, but they didn't necessarily bringing anything new to the table.

That being said
i don't think the result is unfair or anything, alaska is good and she deserves it, i'm happy for her.


Also yes, detox was being a coward for eliminating
alyssa, the only reason she does that is that she know alissa is nice and she can handle it, roxxy does not deserve to be at final 4 at all. She got this far only because she's friends with detox and alaska and they kept saving her ass. Imo tatianna should be in final 4 not roxxy.

Finally got around to watching the finale and I can say is:
no surprise Alaska won. People were right with their predictions. Sure Alaska is now "in the hall of fame" but at what cost? Her popularity is gone everybody sees her as a whiny child now :/ I hate Rolskatox, let it burn in hell <3

Oh I forgot about this thread.

I enjoyed this season over all. They genuinely casted the most memorable queens from the past seasons. The Phi Phi drama was hilarious, especially with how it played out on social media while the episodes aired. I'm glad Tatianna came back to TV, got her shine, and introduced herself to the Drag Race noobies out there. But I really wished she could've made it to top 4, even more than I wish Alyssa would've replaced a Final queen (and that's coming from a huge Alyssa lover as well).

But yes, I was also #TeamKatya. I was during her RPDR season as well. She won people over by being endearing and hilarious out of drag, and bringing a certain quirkiness that even Alaska lacks. Alaska had already earned her status as an iconic Drag Race queen and performed spectacularly during most challenges, so technically she deserved the win, but dammit, Ru shoulda just switched it up on us and given the crown to Katya anyway.

Excited for season 9? :D

Based on the Colour Splash promo and Meet the Queen introduction videos, plus a couple of audition tape segments I saw on Twitter, I think the strongest contenders in the competition will probably be
Sasha Valour, Nina Bonina Brown, Alexis Michelle and Valentina.

I'm also very attracted to
Farrah Moan and Kimora Blac :love2:

Attempting to revive this thread again, bc I have nowhere else to discuss it :D
(I don't read the Reddit discussions but I'll start once Season 9 is over. I see Reddit spoilers in the YouTube/Facebook comments before the episode has even aired and it pisses me off because I just want to enjoy the show :sideeye: )

I enjoy Shea and Sasha, Nina is talented and I love her but she needs to step it up, Alexis is talented but is getting on my last nerve, I love Trinity and Peppermint way more than I ever expected, I was excited for Jaymes Mansfield and Charlie Hides and I wish they'd gone further. (I think it's criminal that we were deprived of Charlie Hides doing Joan Rivers for Snatch Game. :wahh: ) I really loved Eureka as well (unpopular opinion). This is probably the first season in which I've loved so many queens!

My ideal top 3 would be Shea, Sasha and Trinity. The trouble is none of them are really a clear standout to me, as they're ALL fierce and talented and seem evenly matched. Shea's won the most challenges so far and seems the most consistent but her personality doesn't seem to pop as much and hasn't shown much vulnerability so far, which has made it hard for me to really root for her. I thought Nina was clearly going to be the winner and she's such a standout but she's not won a challenge since the first episode, eight whole episodes ago.

Thoughts on Valentina's elimination?

My favs who are still in the competition are Shea and Peppermint. I was really rooting for Charlie Hides so it was disappointing to see her go so early.
I wouldn't have expected Valentina to be the next to go but that lip sync was cringe-inducing, especially compared to Nina's. :?

My top three are Shea, Sasha and Trinity. I think Shea will be the winner (she has the edit). I think I would like to see Sasha win though, as I would like her personality in among the winners (if that makes sense?). Also Trinity has grown on me so I want to see her do well :love1:

Eliminated Queens:
I'm a big fan of Valentina, and while she obviously fucked up (so soooo badly) I still like her for what she does. I say she will win Miss Congeniality however, so it won't be too bad.

Nina. I loved her in episode 1, 2, 3...it starts to go down from there. Self-consciousness and anxiety got to her, she just became harder to watch until she just became downright *mean* and self absorbed. People can look past that, and see her for her talents, but the kind of abrasive attitudes she has has made my tolerance to her fall. Hopefully she'll become big in her own way, following the show ending, and has had exposure to more people who like her for those reasons.

My reaction to this week's episode:

- Everybody loves puppets!
- yaaaassss gay it up :sparkle:
- Rupaul's amazing ribbon-twirling segment
- their own ribbonography was pretty underwhelming
- the sexy unicorns just gave me furry/brony
- Are you kidding me?! Say what you want about Sasha's looks being more fashion than ball but. COME. ON.
3 perfect looks (including an actual rainbow look) + standing out in the ribbonography + the little house on her head... but oh no, she didn't gag the judges. Plus her winning would have evened the playing field for the final 3. Now it looks like Shea's going to win for sure. I like her (and I loved her construction worker look) but this was one of the least deserved wins imo, and it feels like Sasha has been robbed so many times this season. Though neither of them seem to have a personality befitting of America's Next Drag Superstar. Sorry bout it. Trinity should snatch the crown. >:)
- Great lip sync. I will rewatch it many times.
- Alexis Michelle is gone! :fireworks: she didn't annoy me that much this episode though. I'll wait for Untucked, my opinion may change. I'm sure she'll call the others out for not telling her her outfit was basic :roll:

THAT REUNION THO

I'm so glad they brought back the old format before the Grand Finale. I think they get nervous/pageant-y with a big audience watching them (and applauding/booing) and so they don't speak their minds, or a lot of what they say is pre-planned. So this was EXTREMELY refreshing.

And boy what a reunion it was! Probably my favourite of all the reunions. I've already watched it 3 times.
I have very mixed feelings about the Miss Congeniality moment but it made for some great TV. I was so pleased with Aja this episode, she single-handedly sparked one of the show's most iconic moments ever. (It was very telenovella / Miss Columbia, Valentina continues her branding to the end.) Personally I would have picked Farrah or Peppermint (or even Eureka) to be MC but that's besides the point. If congenial means agreeable, likeable, gracious or whatever then sure, Valentina (from what you see on the show) is deserving of the title, but it sounds like she's a completely different person off camera. I also remember being confused as to why Valentina said nothing when Nina was getting so much hate for winning the lipsync. It's a shame because I kind of came to enjoy Nina and Tina (lol)'s chemistry when they seemed like polar opposites at the beginning and yet had this budding friendship. Not anymore I guess.

Has anybody's opinions of some queens changed? Have you picked sides? What was your favourite part? And what did you think of the last episode?
