If that's true, that's one of the shittiest things this show has done. Give the winners their prizes, god drat it

Apparently Bebe never even got the prize money from Season 1 - if you watch the "Lost Season" or whatever with Ru's commentary he says as much - "Was it $25,000? I thought it was $20,000. Never got paid."

Anyway looking forward to this season, hopefully it'll be better than whatever last year was - no more goddamn acting challenges please. I kind of wish I hadn't spoiled the top 7 (and let's be honest, top 3) but every season is a blessing!

She then goes on and on about applying 4 times - surely at some point in those five years you could've taken a class at Jo-Ann Fabrics or something, come on.

Well I mean she's not Sweet Betty, she kind of comes as it says on the tin. Honestly I'm glad to have a villain who is just a bitch, just a real lowlife stank rear end bitch. It's a refreshing change from the "we're all sisters" schtick the girls have been doing on the last seasons to avoid social media backlash.

Acid Betty's a bitch, and she knows it.

There's so many stories abut What Willam Did that it's hard to keep track at this point - he was signed up to be in the Jeresy Shore Musical and had to leave by a certain date, saw that the competition was rigged and unsafe, was brought in as a ringer, etc. etc. Interesting to see what he goes with in the book.

It seems like you could go with Frozen or something, that was around the same time as Nothing Really Matters and it was a very draggable look - you get a cape, drag queens love capes. Black feathers! Weird hand shapes!

I really hope we don't see the Puppets mini-challenge, which is really only an excuse to try to get the queens to read each other again to cause drama. It's basically Reading 2.0, but worse because there are lovely puppets. Who doesn't love puppets? This guy right here.

BEATINGS WILL INCREASE UNTIL EVERYONE LOVES PUPPETS

I get that it's basically reading v 2.0 but it's often when there's a smaller group of girls and is far less friendly. I don't know, I generally like it. Plus they keep showing off that glory hole wall in Untucked so you know it's coming.

RIP Pit Crew 2007-2016

I agree with the idea that Ru doesn't want another drag queen on the panel - even the faux queens who are close (Michelle, Elvira) aren't really allowed to steal the spotlight. There's one queen on that panel, and it's Ru. Ru's show, Ru's rules.

Lady Bunny throws a hell of a lot of shade at Drag Race and it's never really clear why, but neither is anything else that fresh and friendly LadyBug does.

So does the Shade Tree get used in Untucked or anything because yo RIP that feature in the actual show.


Santino and the Pit Crew live in there now, rents being what they are in the WeHo-Adjacent area

I have no idea what the point of it was, apparently the girls did use it but I guess it didn't produce the type of drama they wanted so its one major use so far is Kim Chi talking about how no one likes her.

It was a pretty slow season so far I thought and this episode was just... drat. Impressive runway, great lipsync, even the maxi challenge was pretty good.

Untucked is weird though I'll say that.

angerbeet
Mar 23, 2004




It's a song Chi Chi does at her home gig, or at least they do a Dreamgirld revue according to Reddit, so it's not surprising she knows it.

Also if you haven't seen Jennifer Holliday do And I'm Telling You (around 3:10)

There's a reason she snatched that Tony.

And spoilers, big spoilers, regarding what I read earlier this year about the boot order, read at your own caution:

Adore is first to go, and loses her poo poo. Alaska and.... I think Katya were the top two.

That's not quite right, from what I've heard (Alaska's boyfriend got mad at her for drinking and went on a messy instagram spoiler spouting spree)

Elimination spoilers: Coco is the first to go, Adore walks out in the second episode because she feels overwhelmed by the number of people from Season 5.

The top three (and other stuff about AS2) is (theoretically) already known, you can find the T by googling or searching the /r/rupaulsdragrace subreddit.

It sounds like the top two lipsync and whoever wins that gets to pick from the bottom two, and the bottom two might be chosen by the other queens.

So, drama.

Looks like it'll be a reasonably good season based on what's come out so far. There's a behind the scenes companion series this year that seems to be more hotel-based, and I can't tell if Untucked is actually happening this year or if it's sort of baked in to the show.
