Some of my faves are returning for AS3. I am way more excited for this than I thought I would be.

Already sick of Thorgy again. And its a no elimination season.

I hope Milk conceptually posterizes her over and over.

Still waiting impatiently for this to hit OUTtv. I mean I know who all ten queens are, but I'm still all amped up to watch it.

Looking forward to AS3. Managed to get tickets to see Alaska, Willam, Courtney, Jinx, Trixie and Sharon last week, and Jinx’s solo show for next week - very drag heavy October!

I'm super stoked for more Chi Chi.

When S6 aired my thought about Milk was DICK she needed a couple years of polishing, so I'm curious to see where she is now.

Every year we hire a RuPaul queen to host our local gay bingo.

We've done Shangela, Latrice, Willam, Alyssa Edwards and Trixie Mattel.

This year it's Tammie Brown and everyone is acting like her hair is on fire. Because Tammie Brown is loving weird. And goddamn amazing.

I'm already exhausted by Thorgy and I hope her time is brief.

Thorgy and Aja are both tedious to me and I hope they leave sooner rather than later.

Also can we please talk about what Milk was wearing. What the gently caress?

Who is the clear frontrunner this time around? Obviously last time it was Alaska. But all of these queens have serious weaknesses that prevent them from being so far ahead of the pack.

yeah if you're referring to Trixie, she's really good at one thing, possibly the best - but she doesn't really have the range for the show unless she really broadens outside of what we've typically seen

It's a Marc Jacobs reference, I think, or maybe Marc Jacobs copied Milk? Not sure of the timing.

Yeah as much as I love Trixie, I worry she will get sent home every time there's a dancing challenge or she's asked to give high glamour/couture. That's just not what she does.

I loved Ben last time and really want to see what she is gonna do. Probably my second favorite Miss Congeniality behind Latrice. Aside from her, I am rooting for Shangela and Trixie.

I kind of like Thorgy, but I don't see her even coming close to winning. She is perpetually too much.

Milk, Aja, Chi Chi, Morgan, etc I am just eh about.

Morgan, Chi Chi, and Kennedy are all fantastic performers, but I think they're a bit too "vanilla." They have the opposite problem of Milk and Trixie who struggle doing "standard" drag.

what a humorous anecdote.

Ben got eliminated last time for doing "old lady pinup drag" and being "unable to do anything else" (in a season with bianca boatneck del rio, nine bikinis, and sequin trashbags. the critiques in season 6 were so weird) so I hope the judges don't get stuck in that mindset again

esperterra

All Stars tends to be more forgiving of a queen sticking to their brand, at least, but yeah the critiques in 6 were weird as hell. Just bad editing, I imagine. The critique segments take pretty long for each queen. Probably some better reasons for their decisions left on the cutting room floor.

Aja will be worth it for the memes, surely. But she's a queen I would have liked to see given more time to grow, before returning.

I thought the early rumors said that Valentina would be back, but I guess not. I imagine she realizes that the backlash against her is still so fresh, that she'd better lying low for a while.

I'd imagine its because her bookings are making her zillions of dollars from her rabid fanbase and to spend any amount of time off that track would be stupid for an incremental amount of fame she does not need.

She can do a redemptive arc later, if she ever feels it lucrative enough. Drag Satan is not a fool.

You're probably right. If the numbers were correct, I heard that Adore 2 years ago made something like $3 million between appearances and album sales. I can only imagine what Valentina is making.

Is this the thread where we talk about Dragula too? Not sure if it warrants it’s own thread since the shows are similar and on different months of the year (like all stars), but I just finished season 1 and it’s BANANAS. Season 2 starts in a week and I’m hyped as gently caress. You can catch season 1 on amazon prime.

All the episodes are on YouTube apparently- it’s a show hosted by the Boulet brothers (they’re pretty legendary) and they’re searching for the “worlds first drag super monster”

It’s basically drag race with a dark twist. The first season was kinda low budget (think of drag race the first couple seasons) - audio is bad, some sloppy editing, but it’s so damned entertaining and by the end you’ll be SHOOK. The finale is absolutely batshit insane.

Anyway here’s the first episode
