And then there's this :allears:

I am excited about A LOT of queens this season. Kim Chi got some amazing looks and concepts (although I'm not sure how well she can do with the time limitations on the show), Robbie Turner completes the Seattle Trifecta, Acid Betty blows my mind, Naomi Smalls is Raven's honorary drag daughter, Dax! is Violet's drag mother, Bob is Bob... I could go on for a while :D

Come on Season 8! :dance:

If they had no problem with crowning Violet when Tyra Sanchez cornered the market on bland boring pretty queens I don't know why they can't have two funny queens.

She actually didn't know what a Brony was till she saw the reactions to it on Reddit (at least according to her facebook). It's kind of a shame she chose this theme considering how the internet reacts to it. Her January looks were AMAZING.

If anyone is so inclined, even Michelle gets that season 7 was a wash.

The conversation about the seasons is longish, but it's as close to a mea culpa as fans are getting. Also, Violet shade. And Lady Bunny is always a hoot God Bless That Mess. Michelle says season 8 will be off the chain. I choose to believe that is because of Bob.

Season 6 arguably had two ringers in Bianca and Courtney, with Courtney being the Villain Ringer and with Adore playing the unkempt underdog.

I would say they tried the same thing in Season 4 with Sharon and Chad, and maybe even Season 3 with Raja, but it's always hard to figure out what Reality TV magic is planned and what's sheer talent. (The answer is usually both.)

...were there any ringers or obvious plants in Season 7 (besides Pearl, maybe)? It's hard to tell, unfortunately.

EDIT: Also I am 100% fine with a repeat of Season 6 for the new season. High quality queens = high quality seasons, period.

This isn't Middle Earth, Quentin. There aren't enough noble quests to go around.
There's a handful of Queens that I am loving so far. Bob is definitely a front runner.

I like: Acid Betty, Bob, Dax Exclamationpoint, and Thorgy Thor. I hope some of the other queens surprise me, but from the Meet the Queens videos, they were boring.

Did I misread all the signs?
I know Chad Michaels also does it with Cher, but I find something rather off-putting about Derrick Barry's Brittany schtick. With everyone else trying to cultivate their own personality it seems strange to just be dedicated to impersonating someone else. Then again maybe Derrick does more than that, but that was the main thrust of her 'Meet the Queens' presentation.

Also Dax strikes me as oddly passable without being excessively fishy. I feel like I know or have seen women who look and act and sound like her (and were actually women).

It was always really obvious to me that Chad was so much more than Cher, but not sure for Derrick. Regardless Can Derrick Do More Than Britney!? is going to be his big plotline for an annoying amount of time. He's probably going to stick around to Snatch Game at the very least though for equally obvious reasons.

I really like Dax, so nerdy :3: Also rooting for Cyn-tia (who is adorable and has the business smarts to follow Katya's lead and start making her own weekly Youtube videos, which doesn't bode well for her longevity but at least shows she knows how to milk this opportunity for all it's worth) and Bob, but you knew that already.

Acid Betty and Kim Chi both have cool styles but I'm not sure how they'll perform? Wasn't impressed by their MTQ vids for some reason. :shrug:

...everyone else looks like (very fun) cannon fodder; we'll see, as always, and I'm sure I'll fall in love with every last one of them, but sorry girls!

And that's unfortunate, actually. I'm actually really tired of having token PR and Big Girl queens who never, ever take the crown. It's not a super big deal, but it's starting to come off as a little patronizing. Hence why I'm rooting for Cynthia in spite of it all, who seems to have a Katya-like personality that might catch on in a big way.

Cyn-tia is great. She has the telenovela thing absolutely dialed, she's funny and winsome, and that mug, Jesus.

I also like Laila McQueen's herd of lesbians and shy hilarity (it took me a couple of viewings to catch on, but bitch is a lowkey riot.) I hope she doesn't choke.

THANK YOU, HOLY poo poo. THIS HAS BEEN BOTHERING ME SO MUCH.

I was trying so hard to figure out who she reminded me of, thinking of celebrities, like ya do, and drawing a blank. Turns out I fuckin know her. Not *her* her obviously, and a biological woman, and an ex-girlfriend of one of my best friends, but she's Dax down to the ground. Look, speech patterns, expressions, the whole nine. Crazy. I like her too. (Dax, and my friend's ex.)

:gowron::m10:
Back when everything was speculation and Nancy Drew-work, I already had Bob, Dax, and Kim as favorites. Seeing the MtQs sealed the deal, but every queen so far has charmed me in some way. Even the "boring" pageant-y types have such cute MtQ/trailer outfits and sweet personalities I can't help but like them.

I agree about Dax. She is ultra pretty, and the nerdiness is automatic points in my book. Something about her toothy, slightly-open-mouth resting face just mesmerizes me. Her husband/boyfriend is ultra cute too...

I didn't know much about Laila before her MtQ, but I loved her dry humor. I really hope she isn't an early out. She needs to be there to balance out the pageant queens with her trashiness.

Ugh, this is gonna be a long month.

I know a lot of fans don't like her, but I'd say Ginger Minj. Didn't it come out that despite her protestations that she couldn't sew or dance she was a costume designer and choreographer? She was just about one of the most well rounded Queens we've had on the show, and I honestly believe that if it wasn't for the fact that a large portion of the fandom disliked her so heavily, she was meant to be the first "Big Girl" winner.
