Yeah, I don't like Kandy. I really like Katya so far but feel like I gotta root for Kennedy cause I'm a Dallas girl too. Also she seems pretty awesome :3:
Reports from the promo tour indicate that Kennedy absolutely killed it. She's a real pro, seems pretty unflappable, and I pity whoever has to lipsync against her. Potential sleeper.

Apparently, in a conversation with a fan, Katya strongly hinted that Trixie is brought back later in the season and it had better be true because that is some BULL. poo poo.

Katya is just such a gem. I want to be her best friend immediately and I'm doing the most rooting for her; my only minor beef is that it seems like she's showing up more in the werkroom and confessionals than in the challenges/on the runway. I don't know if it's the edit or if she's getting in her own way, but I want to see her break the gently caress out and it hasn't quite happened yet. C'mon, mom!

Stray, unrelated observation: why isn't Pearl getting dinged for that cadaveresque nose contour? It's so distracting and she doesn't even need it.

Oh yeah, I guess something happened with Max, huh.

That rumor apparently came from a source that correctly spoiled a bunch of stuff last season, but has been wrong on a couple of key points this season including the Snatch Game outcome.

I like her too. She's old-school in her bitter cattiness, she's really good at rising to the occasion, and she can paint for the gods.

She will probably win, but if mom doesn't make top 3 at least I am done. Officially.

I have a question for you guys; out of all the queens you've seen live, who's impressed you most?
Oooh, good question.

My best one isn't a Drag Race girl and never will be -- Squeaky Blonde. She's terrifying and transgressive and sings like an angel and talks like the Devil, and every time I go to see her (which is often, because she lives in my neighborhood) guaranteed I'll be thinking about her performance for days afterward. Her drag daughter Fade-dra Phey is something else too. A good friend of mine knows both of them personally and well, and he says "Those people are dangerous. Like literally, don't ever get in a car with them dangerous." I like that in my drag.

#2 has gotta be Christeene Vale, who genuinely thinks she's a princess.

As for Drag Race girls, Raven is always wonderful even though she's soused half the time. Detox must be seen live to be believed, and is a genuine sweetheart. And I was completely unprepared for how supernaturally beautiful Jinkx Monsoon is in person. She's funny and nice and charismatic as hell, all expected per her season, but mostly she'll just eat your eyes up. Also she's enormous, and smells great.

One day Raven's gonna roll through Portland and I'm gonna tell her we grew up in the same shithole town. I'll break out a high school yearbook and we'll burn it together.

...though my family relocated from L.A. to Victorville for work reasons when I was a kid, Raven was born in Victorville. That idea hurts my goddamn head.
Victorville is seriously a standout shithole, and since Raven is from there I do not blame her one second for her blood type being Sauza.

Ran into a couple of queens at Torrid today-

One of them told me they already know who's going to win. I didn't ask.

My question is- Can people know the outcome of the actual crowned queen? Or should I go with my gut feeling, and call bullshit?
Unless this season is radically different from seasons past, it's bullshit. Nobody knows who wins (except Ru and I guess a few producers) until the reunion airs.

I was all set to be bummed about Trixie leaving again, but she went out in kind of a nasty, petulant way so I'm not too upset and also have probably been manipulated by the edit. Oh well, that's what we sign up for with this show.

I legitimately like everyone who's left. This is going to get painful.

Watched it again because apparently I'm a goddamn masochist, and the really hosed-up thing is that Katya's lipsync was objectively so much better. More accurate, more song-appropriate -- she loving killed it.

So yeah, pretty much the worst thing ever to happen ever.

DapperDinosaur posted:

I feel like the biggest problems this season have been the extremely obvious producer interference (Trixie, Max and Katya eliminations and Ginger's continued success) and the focus on the goddamn acting/scripted challenges.
The challenges just straight-up did not suit this slate of contestants AT ALL. I imagine that the production intentionally went after look queens this season after crowning quirky character girls three seasons in a row, but if you do get a bunch of look queens -- and good ones, it's hard to beat Violet and Fame on that front -- why the hell would you then march them through goofy performance challenge after goofy performance challenge?

I think this season would have been pretty fun with s3-style assignments. Instead we got a clumsy, tone-deaf debacle.

Once again I am ANGRY about reality television

Per her AMA, Katya says her favorite novel is "The Master and Margarita".

1. She fuckin would. 2. That may be the best novel ever and it is a beast to get through, for anyone following along the Penguin translation is probably your best bet 3. oh my god her favorite book is "The Master and Margarita".

She deserves our adoration down to the ground.

Have we started getting our surely-to-be-dashed hopes up about who we want to see on s8 yet, absent All-Stars with Katya and Alaska destroying everything in sight?

My God she is just killingly good, isn't she? Here she is kinda owning The Winnah, just to tie it all in.

Met Willam (and Warner!) today. Captain Scraps called picture-posting privs, so stay tuned.

Willam is such a nice man. Excellent at putting folks at ease, generous and engaged. I was out my drat mind on industrial-strength painkillers and probably came off dumb and surly as all hell, and he was still just so sweet -- despite being in the middle of a work-marathon that was exhausting just to hear about. Yes, meet your heroes if they are Willam.

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.

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).
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.)

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.
A little bird told me that this is absolutely, objectively, irl true. She would've had it in the bag if not for her disgraceful showing on Untucked.
