I can see Dax facing a similar challenge as Derrek: can they push far enough past their polished primary personas to prove their potential as America's Next Drag Superstar?

What's the T about the game show Ru is hosting in April?

Yip Yip, bitch.


OK, just watched the first episode with my husband.

I didn't think Kim Chi had much personality during the pre-show stuff, but I've grown to love her. Her back story about her mum doesn't know Kim Chi does drag, and seeing the photos and thinking it's a make up customer had me (internally) crying for her. And how she was scared that her mom would disown her. I know they didn't give that moment all that much air time, but drat did that strike a chord. I love love LOVED her outfit, her makeup, and her maxi challenge entry. She earned that win, IMO.

I hope Bob never shuts up. Her banter is hilarious, and she really does deliver the comedy. However, with the maxi challenge WHY didn't she use that gorgeous dark red brown curtain? It would have made much more of an impact. I mean, I get that you don't consider yourself the best seamstress, but you can clearly throw down when it comes to making a functional, tailored looking garment for the runway. Yes, you might have not had as much contrast with your skin tone, but it would have still looked a lot more exciting than the bland colours you wore. You've GOT this, Bob. I'm rooting for you!

The photo is Bob doing the reading at our wedding from like 2011. :) She's been working it for yearrrrrs.

She's a sweetheart in person. Funny as hell, but really nice.

This episode was so solid, it was the throwback to previous episodes that season 7 tried to do with all the super forced lovely catchphrases, but just done so well.
I really loved it but it's criminal Latrice didn't say a single word the entire time.

I have this nasty feeling Leila is out next week or week three. She's so nervous it pours off her, I get an inferiority vibe from her and I think she will get eaten alive by bigger personalities. But I think she's destined to fade into the background, Vivienne Pinay style.

But it was just an amazing episode, drag race is BACK and everything was wonderful (except the lip-sync and Dax out of drag which is terrifying)

I think CLFontaine is pretty funny but if she doesn't bring more than kooky in the next couple episodes yeah, I'd be alright with her getting sent home.

I honestly felt like Naomi Smalls should've been bottom two, that dress was very :effort:

My picks for top four gotta be Acid Betty, Bob, Derrick Berry, and Kim Chi. Dax! can pull out some awesome looks for sure, but unfortunately I think she has too much strong competition from Betty, Kim Chi, and others.

Wasn't really impressed with Thorgy or Bobbie Turner this episode.

Oh Lucy, I do apologize, I've been so terribly busy. Honestly, I barely have the time to drink deep and descend.





Chi Chi is a real life Lafayette from True Blood and I love it. CLF's constant references to her CooCoo was tiring and I wish Bianca had been in the photo shoot to call out Acid Betty. Anyone know what she wasn't there? Was there a falling out or just schedule conflict? 'Cause drat that would have been great if she had come from around the corner to give her a "Really Queen?".

Go Bob.

Bianca was apparently on set filming for Hurricane Bianca at the time of the show's taping (with a late summer release anticipated).

Combined with his John Lennon glasses.... it's an interesting look. He seems like a very cool and genuine guy, so I'm waiting for more out of him. I like him in the confessionals.

Robbie Turner's makeup and wigs are killing me, though. When this season has such amazing makeup artists and wig stylists, he's gotta step up his game HARD.

I thought for sure that Robbie was going home, considering how front-loaded his confessionals were .
I thought the same thing, and then he forgot to pick a good challenge and I thought he was a lock for bottom two. Her photo shoot saved her rear end.

Chi Chi's Meet The Queens interview made her sound just... dumb, but I really liked her in this episode.

I want all Bob all the time :allears:

I hope queens from previous seasons continue to make cameos. It would make a nice lead in to All Stars 2.

Well, that was a very satisfying episode. Betty and Robbie can keep on being shady as far as I'm concerned (I may have a thing for permastubbly guys with oversized faces). Bob too. I'll take a gleeful bitch over the sour bitches last season. Props to Kim Chi for being a sweetie and a goofball. And for winning. I'll defend her walk by assuming that look was heavy and probably only gently balanced on her shoulders.

The rest of the queens seem fun, and the right queen went home. That was a terrible dress and an awkward lip sync.

Agreed, I can't remember anyone specifically but I have always disliked queens who pick one word and decide they need to say it in every sentence.

Thorgy as boy looks like a grandma with a dread nest up top. Just a sad situation

So far I am team Bob, we'll see if it lasts.

Great start to the season so far. I wasn't really feeling Kimchi in the promos, but I absolutely fell for her this week.

For the first time I think ever in the series, there wasn't anyone that I disliked. Just as I felt like I was about to turn against someone, they pulled out a great look, or even Laila's lipsync, which was amazing.

Yep. I'm totally falling for editing and can't stand Acid Betty. She's a bitter betty without any snap, anything more substantial other than angry. I saw it in Miss Glamour Toad last season and I'm seeing it again with this villain edit, only she can't contain it to Untucked. CLF really does need to shut up about her cucu. I love Bob's personality though and Chi Chi's hilarious too. I'm pulling for a Kim Chi win overall.

Also, have you all checked out the Kingsley recaps for Logo?

AHAHAHAHAHA outside of, like, two people the age range seems to be 30-33, so everyone's reasonable when they talk, they're likable and have senses of humor about themselves (probably not Acid Betty. Also of course this won't last, competition is competition is competition).

That moment in Untucked where everyone's groping Cynthia Lee Fontaine's rear end and there's absolutely ZERO sexuality or any sort of joking involved, just a bunch of guys appreciating good plastic surgery had me cackling like an utter maniac.

EDIT: These queens are so not shady, Robbie straight-up screwed herself while handing out the themes.

Just got done watching Untucked.

I really don't get after 99 episodes, why these queens refuse to learn how to make things?

Kim Chi got served the Hair Ball challenge, and used ALL of the crayons in the crayon box. Won the challenge, because that look was amazeballs. If Kim Chi pulls that level of purrfection all of the challenges, we don't need to see the finale. We have our queen.

Naysha Lopez was also given the same task. You know this show is going to throw a sewing/hot gluing challenge right at your mug. I am getting tired of this queen crying that she wasn't given the opportunity to show who she really was. :nyd: Go home. I also almost lost it when Dax and CLFontaine were saying that Naysha was a dance queen. :lol: Was the song really Applause? Cause all I got was resting on pretty, and sexy.

I also noticed Acid Betty talks more poo poo in the workroom, and Dax talks more poo poo in the Lounge.

I still am reeling from the fact Robbie wasn't bottom two. That dress was dog poo poo.

Goes to show no matter how good you are, and how many episodes you've watched, you really gotta bring your A game henny.

Untucked was pretty great. Thorgy seems really high-energy and genuine, I'm not sure how funny she is yet but if she can back that personality up with some good performances she might be really competitive. Chi Chi is kind of the same way for me, she has a great personality and I was impressed with how she turned around that last-minute pantie tearing (yeah reality TV, I know), she could be a contender if she keeps delivering.

Every time Bob was on the screen I was loving it. Bob 2016!

I don't care if Acid Betty is a bitch if she brings it like that every time on the runway.

Kim Chi is sweet and God that makeup! That look took balls but it worked so well.

Thorgy is someone I want to hang out with.

I think the dog dress one was worse than Naysha but girrrrl how do you audition for the show 4 years running and never sew a garment? Please.

I was never a big fan of Tyra while she was on Season 2, but I still admire her strength and respect her win, especially given the stressful circumstances of her appearance on the show (by all accounts she and her son were homeless right before she went on and Tyra saw taking home the prize as the only way out) and the way she's been dogged by the same difficult circumstances of her background that have continued (money doesn't make anything instantly better except your teeth and your bank account).

Bianca's since been photoshopped into the pics, but I'm glad they kept the clown in those versions.
