Please leave the room if you think this might offend you



Someone in one of the previous threads said "Thorgy looks like she smells like an old sponge" and that is so perfectly dead on that it has never left my mind and is now all I can think about when I see her.

Tammie is peak 'someone needs to leave in the first 1-2 episodes' since her schtick doesn't play well in Drag Race, but it's worth her leaving early just to get more Tammie on my TV.

Rumours abound that Ongina was supposed to be in AS3 so I'm hoping she's a lock for AS4. Ongina needs a crown gdi.

Yeah as1 had loving TITANS and did absolutely nothing with them due to the stupid loving format.

Mine is hands down So Emotional with Sasha and Shea, followed by Tati X Alyssa doing Shut Up and Drive. Then probably Alyssa and Coco doing Cold Hearted and Raven and Juju doing Dancing on My Own.

I'm clearly a sucker for an emotional backstory. Tati and Alyssa was completely electric from start to finish.

the Raven / Juju lipsynch is one of my faves, far and away.

AS1 is a hard season to revisit because by the time the last episode rolls around, to me it rings hugely false that Chad would win. i say this as someone who loves Chad from top to bottom. i find her a consumate professional, someone who's just incredibly polished and entertaining. but that last challenge - the superhero one - should have been a disaster for Chad and Shannel. they rightly got slammed by Michelle for turning comic-book glam into bondage nonsense. meanwhile, Raven and Juju absolutely crushed it.

the redeeming value for me was the absolutely crushing lipsynch, but god drat i am still bitter about how that specific episode turned out!

AS1 is the 'Chad bout to die so Ru wanna make her happy' season. I think Chad and Shannel did great but LOL at them winning the superhero challenge over Raven and Juju.

Apparently Ongina doesn't do drag full time anymore, and she can't get away from her real job long enough to film the season and do all the necessary promo.

I'm still convinced that Ru had planned on giving the crown to Chad in season 4, but Sharon became such a fan favorite that she couldn't justify not giving her the crown. So it didn't matter what happened in All Stars, unless Chad royally hosed up, she was going to get that crown.

Hi, I am listening to the new Weepies album and sipping on some ice tea... with a slice of lemon, of course! Tomorrow I plan on growing a pair of ovaries.


There's a lot of great dancers this season - Kennedy, Shangela, Chi Chi, Morgan. Aja is pretty good too. Should make for some awesome lipsynchs.

Kennedy and Thorgy's intro outfits were a mess.

Here's my elimination order, I think I might've changed my mind on the top four.

Aja
Thorgy
Kennedy
Morgan
Chi Chi
Top four: Milk, Shangela, BenDeLa, Trixie

Aja and Thorgy go first because I find them a little grating and they don't seem to really excel at any facet of drag. Like, what are their singular strengths? Other than being annoying (Thorgy) and ranting (Aja).

Kennedy, Morgan, and Chi Chi go next. They're all awesome dancers and will deliver some great lip-synchs but none of them are particularly funny and their drag aesthetics are pretty standard. I like Chi Chi most of the three just based on personality.

Shangie and BenDeLa I think have the best shot at the crown. They're well-rounded and polished queens. Milk has probably the most distinctive and creative aesthetic, and Trixie is hilarious, the challenge for them will be if they can set aside their schticks and demonstrate they can also do good "normal" drag.

Assuming the mystery tenth queen is who's been leaked, I dunno about her. Not familiar enough with her to guess as to how she'd do.

There's few things better than the Carson Kressley video from the OP. That Tati X Alyssa video is too incredible--I can't even tell which reaction shot was the real one since it works so perfectly for most of the reaction shots!

The Dida Ritz vs. The Princess was also drag GOLD.

if it's who's been rumoured (Bebe) then she'll loving crush. one of the most polished, beautiful creatures to grace this fine globe.

hopeful top four from me is Ben DeLa, Trixie, Shangela and Milk. although if i'm making guesses that are based in reality rather than wishful thinking, you can probably sub out Milk for Chi Chi.

i think Trixie is the closest thing to a lock this season has for top four. dunno if she'll win, it might depend on the challenges - if she gets some comedy, stagework stuff, she'll be great. Milk is such a wild card that it wouldn't surprise me if she blazed out in glorious technicolour in the first episode. she's bonkers and wonderful and that's why i love her. Shangela is like the little steam train that kept getting asked back; she knows how to play the game and put it all out there, so i'd be staggered if she doesn't get far.

i don't really hope for much from Aja and Kennedy other than hopefully some dramatic talking heads and giffable quotes. Thorgy and Morgan / Thorgan are both queens i can't get enthusiastic about. i hope they surprise me but i'm willing to bet they won't.

My favorite lipsync is Latrice v Kenya. It was just so outclassed; Kenya was bouncing around like a 3 year old with too much Pixy Stix and gogo juice and Latrice was just dignified and beautiful.

what a humorous anecdote.

As much as I (inexplicably) love Aja I know she's going early on, if not immediately before Thorgy, then immediately after.
I also love how you can tell that Morgan is treating this like a regular season since it's been so long for her. She's trying to win and not just make a second, career boosting impression.

Morgan is a SoCal (West Hollywood, the LA gay village) staple. The commentary about her being a workhorse is absolutely true. She's performing at clubs basically every night and is a local legend.

That said, she's pretty standard as drag queens go. Casts a ton of shade, lipsynchs and dances really well. Morgan is not at all a comedy queen, she's 10x more bitchy than she is funny/campy and I think that will be her downfall.

Morgan is, frankly, kinda basic. She's great at lip-synching, dancing, and reading you to filth. That's not enough for me in All Stars #3, you need to also be funny and aesthetically creative, which Morgan is not. Morgan is an extremely polished and hardworking queen, but she's standard drag fare and that's not enough.

Kenya did herself absolutely zero favours - but drat, anybody onstage with Latrice doing a lipsynch of an Aretha Franklin classic is basically doomed the second that first chord starts. Latrice would have had to work pretty hard to lose.

OH another lipsynch that kills me is the Manila vs Delta Work one. not that one of the heathers didn't deserve to go, but it was a great capper to the two-episode build up.

There really aren't any good options. I've tried a few.

Playstation Vue has a fantastic interface, but it doesn't have any Viacom stations.

DirectTV Now's interface is awful, has terrible streaming that constantly lags, and it won't cast to my TV for whatever reason.

SlingTV is the cheapest of the bunch, but the interface sucks, and the streaming is never in full HD. It at least casts to my TV, but man the website is a pain in the rear end to use.

I'm probably just going to buy the season pass on Amazon, and watch it the next morning if I don't watch it live at a local bar.

Yeah, I can't imagine her turning an offer down, so I'd say it's more likely she wasn't asked. Only a matter of time though, I guess
Come to think of it, I'd be happy to see any of the S6 queens (er, minus Magnolia) back for all stars. That was a great cast.
