Rumor has it that the logo tv site has commentary on this week's season 4 untucked episode by one ms. Alaska Thunderfuck 5000

Edit: correction: every season 4 untucked now has a version with Alaska commentary. 3 are out so far :derp:

Someone on ONTD (don't judge me) made a post about possible contestants on AllStars 2 based on their activity (or lack thereof) on social media.

For the lazy, the list of queens is as follows:

Alyssa Edwards
Alaska Thunderfuck
Katya
Detox
Adore Delano
Tatianna
Roxxxy Andrews
Phi Phi O'Hara
Coco Montrese
Kelly Mantle
Lineysha Sparx

Detox, Tati, Roxxy, Phi Phi, Coco. They really want to make sure that there is going to be as much drama as possible this season, huh! Count me in!

Alaska, Katya, and Adore, that's your final three right there. Please god, no teams though this season.

And good for them to give Kelly Mantle another chance to prove just how boring she is.

That lineup looks amazing. Speaking of Alyssa, I read yesterday that there might be a reality show set in her dance studio, and I really hope that happens. Seems like it might involve a bunch of Drag Race alumni. Vivienne Pinay is apparently Alyssa's personal assistant, and I assume Laganja's still hanging around some, so it'd be sort of a Drag Race B-team spinoff.

Also, my girlfriend's still on her Drag Race fanart kick. Someone get this ill-advised tattoo:

Can I just say in this thread since I know no one else to say it to, that Latrice motherfuckin' Royale is one of the classiest bitches ever to be on Drag Race? :3: He (I never know which pronoun to use when but he wasn't in drag so?) posted a picture of his belt on his Facebook page to show his weight loss and I sent him a message saying congratulations since I knew how hard it was since I'm doing the same thing, and thanking him for being kind of an inspiration in his attitude with it that he's shown. Then an hour later, just now I got a really lovely IM from him saying thank you and how much he appreciates the support and such. It was such an unnecessary but classy little gesture.

Latrice for All Stars 2, please.

Latrice Katya Willam Alaska Detox Milk Trixie Ongina for her little hats and of course Raven because who else can be 2nd.

The predictions for the All Stars 2 cast mostly makes sense, although one season has an overabundance of representation.

I'm not going to bother with checking out with the suspected cast for season 8 though. I've looked the last few seasons, and those guys over there on reddit are obsessed with some of these queens in an unhealthy way. Every season they pick one or two queens who they just know who are going to take the whole thing, when in reality they end up spinning out by at the very latest the Snatch Game.

Yeah the Season 8 list they've put together looks pretty solid, and there's less of the "Secret Asian Queen" nonsense there was last year, where the sub was convinced Asia Persuasia was going to jump out of a box in episode 3 or something.

His youtube channel is great and all, but I am experiencing a devastatingly low level of sass and shade on my television screen. Maggie Smith in "Downton Abbey" can only provide so much.

So a friend of mine stopped RPDR at Sharon's crowning. He's never seen any of the other seasons. Should he start from the top with Jinxks, or just head to the amazing Bianca's? Maybe go to the most recent Violet?

He's binge-watching Downton Abbey, so I'm highly tempted to push him towards season 6.

I'd show Jinxk's just for the power of the Snatch Game/editing room. Bianca's run is great, but you know by episode three she's going to win it all, and the edit doesn't even try to hide it. I mean, at least make a TOKEN effort, even if it is impossible.

I feel like I'm the only person who actually liked the new Untucked more :( But yeah, season 7 is not a good season, but Untucked made it slightly better. Also, if you're interested in seeing more of Katya, she made two YouTube series with an episode to go with each episode of the show, called RuGrets (in which she talks about regrets in the show and in her life - it's hilarious) and RuFlections (in which she showcases more of Katya as a character).

I found a supercut of the first 10 episodes of season 7 that has Untucked and all bonus scenes chronologically edited into each episode. I haven't watched any of it yet, but I think it will make for a neat viewing experience!

Season 5 and 6 of drag race were the good seasons. Make friend watch them. Season 7 was 33% throwbacks and callbacks to those seasons anyway so it would make a humdrum season worse to not understand those references.

I don't think I'm allowed to post the link directly because of :filez:, but go to the subreddit and search for it there with some of the keywords I mentioned!

I also liked season 7, but I think it's because it was the first season I followed "live", and the first one after I had read a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff. I love all the season 7 queens, it's just that the show itself was kind of... weird? So you had to check out a bunch of extra stuff to find what they were actually like.

^^^ I believe they're called "Chronological edits"

Season 7... was weird. I enjoyed it a lot but if it wasn't for the new untucked format I'd probably hate it. I feel like it's made for the hardcore RPDR fans that are able to watch the queens do nothing for 10 minutes and enjoy every second of it.

I personally enjoyed most of the queens from this season but as the hype dwindles the numbers are decreasing... in the end, probably only these two will be left standing in my drag pantheon (and I honestly like Trixie a lot more after seeing what she's like when she's not edited into st. Barbie :allears:)

Yeah, I kind of felt like Untucked overshadowed the actual show a lot of the time this year. There were some really good moments on the show and there were some incredibly talented queens but the show itself was just kind of... there, in comparison to Untucked where you had Katya & Ginger hanging out on loading docks and poo poo. Violet was a solid queen but did not have anything particularly memorable for me in terms of personality in the same way that someone like Bianca or even Jinkx had, as irritating as Jinkx's season was by the end with the edits.

He was on DragU because someone's contract couldn't go through completely. He wouldn't say whose, but I'm thinking Phi Phi after the whole "sunglasses in Texas stolen and given a warrant" was still up in the air. So it could happen again; we can all hope. But I have no clue. I didn't watch DragU. Is it any good?
