...wait what

Logo has a new gay dating show called Finding Prince Charming, hosted by Lance Bass. It's basically a complete rip off of The Bachelor, and looked to be completely mundane other than the fact that their bachelor is stupidly hot. Every promotion has included at least one scene of him shirtless stepping out of the water onto a beach.

Then the news came out that he used to be an escort. His escorting page surfaced, along with mixed reviews, complete with videos from xtube. And not just videos of him jacking off, but videos of him receiving used condoms full of semen in the mail from clients and fans, and filming himself sucking them dry, or injecting the semen with a needle into his penis.

Logo's PR team has scrambled into overtime and sent him and Lance Bass on a media tour to talk about how it was something he just did to pay for college, and that they just want to focus on his charitable work today.

Logo is desperate for programming.

I mean that's gross and all, but just in a "freaking out the squares" way, I'm pretty sure Logo's audience is harder to scandalize than--

:lol: called it. First time we saw an ad for that show my partner said verbatim "I wonder what his xtube username is?"

Logo is so hard up for original programming and yet I can spitball better ideas than what they have. Like The View except with drag queens. I would watch the poo poo out of The View except with drag queens.

It's less Logo at this point but more can they get it to show on VH1.

I'm in favor of a gay Bachelor series, but then again I'm not watching except for recaps so...

e: I'd also watch a Drag View, but that would require World of Wonder to spend money.

They're both owned by Viacom, so there is no reason why it won't end up on Logo when TV Land inevitably decides it's too edgy for their audiences, even after their latest rebranding effort.

So why isn't "Did you used to be an escort?" question #1 on the vetting process for this guy? Question #2 should have been "Are there easy-to-find videos of you on porn sites?" Did anyone in charge think this kind of stuff wouldn't be found?

See, that's what I don't like about challenges like this. It's pretty difficult to judge their performances when they are all just lip syncing to some terrible song that Lucian Piane wrote in 5 minutes before filming, and they are dancing to very basic choreography because they know that not all the queens can dance so they have to keep it simple.

So, unless somebody majorly fucks up, which nobody did here, then it's pretty hard to judge who is in the top or the bottom. I think you could very easily swap the tops and the bottoms this week, and nobody would really question it.

Also, I thought for sure that Detox was going to be read to filth for that terrible bald cap.

Ha, Taylor Dayne. I only know her because of that Tig Notaro standup routine. "Excuse me, I just wanted to say, I love your voice."

While Alyssa didn't follow through on the detail to send home the girl who got the harshest critique this season, I don't think Alyssa sent Ginger home because she was competition, I think she sent her home because Katya has been a stronger performer this season, and she made the right mood.

But I wouldn't be surprised if it bites her in the rear end.

I saw an episode of Hey Qween where she said all the drama with Sharon was manufactured by two of them because there hadn't been a rivalry like that before.

And Ginger really needs to stop saying that she can't dance. It's very apparent that she is quite talented.

Katya got handed a real raw deal with that challenge, her section was
the least entertaining lyrically, she had no props to work with, and how the gently caress do you make princess di funny? I would have been mad pissed if she got kicked off for that. and her runway was better
than Ginger's in every way

quick thoughts--

I agree that the performances and runway looks were mostly great, the bottom two was a tough pick.

That said I'm not sure Alyssa deserved to be top two, her runway look was kind of a mess of "way too much poo poo" and also being very quintessentially Alyssa. All the other queens did some really out-there stuff which is what I'd want for "future of Drag" rather than a bog standard Alyssa pageant outfit with fascinator. I also thought Detox dominated that lipsync, Alyssa pulled out her death drops but it's like, we know you can dance and death drops have been so overplayed in this show you shouldn't be relying on them.

Honestly not even sure Detox deserved top two either, her lipsync and facial expressions were great as Marie Antoinette but my god her dancing. During rehearsal, "you look like you're taking a poo poo" and somehow she was even worse in the actual performance.

I agree Katya got handed the worst part in the performance, hugeass train dress, Princess Diana is hard to make funny or entertaining, and she was last following a bunch of great performances.

Todrick remains worthless and maybe the producers and editors are aware of that since he had like two lines the whole episode, one of which was a terrible virgin joke and then told Alyssa "this is epic only you could pull it off." :fuckoff:

He also yelled "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS" from offscreen once.

I cannot believe Katya got critiqued on not having the train on that dress when putting the train on it would have hosed up not just hers, but everyone's choreography by getting in the way.

It was a stupid idea in the first place to have Princess Di on that roster. Katya didn't have anything to work with. And Princess Di is a goddamn saint; she didn't fit in with the theme at all.
