Um, I don't know about that. Trixie was booted, but then they brought all the booted queens back for a challenge, and the winner would come back into the competition. Trixie won and came back, and was booted again 2 episodes later.

The problem with season 7 was that it was terrible. Easily the worst season. There was a gaggle of mean queens who were just nasty bitches. You saw some of it in All Stars 2 with Ginger who was the leader of the mean queens. She didn't realize how she came off, and she had no confidence in All Stars 2. There was also an over use of acting challenges, and it was not a cast that was talented in acting. Ru lost her poo poo on the contestants in one episode because everyone was just SO terrible. And at the time, the final 3 was very underwhelming. Nobody really wanted any of the queens to win the crown, so when Violet was eventually crowned, everyone was all, MEH.

In the end, season 7 produced some amazing queens, but something went wrong somewhere in how it was all put together.

Ah thanks. The way my friend was going on about that season, he made it seem like she got snowjobbed and was brought back after some kind of outcry.

Shangela is going to be one to watch this time around. Her makeup was gorgeous. And now she can dance.

The only way I see her losing early is if they make her do filth or horror drag.

Mmm, no. Both eliminations were fair. Plus, the show is filmed usually close to a year before it actually airs. There is no way that there could have been some outcry for her first elimination. I'm not really sure where your friend is coming from.

I think she might even pull that off. I'm quite impressed with how much she's grown as a performer. I'm not sure I'd say she deserves to win All Stars (honestly I'm not sure any of this crop really do), but I think she'll stick around for a while and redeem her legacy significantly.

You guys have one of those friends that gets reeeeeeeeally invested in reality competition shows? Yeah, he’s that kinda guy. Like threw a snitfit over Worst Cooks In America once because ‘there’s no way that one’s dish could taste better!’. I figured he was blowing some editing thing out of proportion.

Reddit has literally cooked up a conspiracy theory about this season:

Bebe is a MOLE! It's all part of the Handmaid's Tale theme. Winners can't take place in All Stars so clearly she's there to dish to Ru about the way the girls behave backstage and will coast to top 4, when Ru will take her aside and ask Bebe to eliminate one of the girls so there is a top two! This, despite Ru never ceding an inch of power, not actually needing anyone to dish about backstage antics as... cameras, and the extreme unlikeliness of any of that whole scheme happening.

I like reddit for the spoilers but when they get obsessed, they get obsessed.

Is Ru's podcast worth listening to? If so, are there any standout episodes?

The Katya one was pretty good, and so was the one with Jenifer Lewis (which had a cute Shangela story too iirc). I don't listen regularly though. It's a lot of Rupaul doing his guru shtick, Michelle oversharing about her kids' personal lives, and both of them whining about Kids These Days.

Yeah. I remember Michelle being on a really annoying health kick as well that was frustrating. I should probably give the Katya episode a listen but other than that, it wasn't really for me.

That clip of Michelle telling Chichi that not being able to afford expensive clothes is not an excuse is really obnoxious as well. I get where she was coming from but that sentiment is honestly classist af. Drag is extremely expensive and if you can't afford amazing human hair wigs or whatever it's gonna look like a downgrade that no amount of zhuzhing will really help. I love Michelle but she has huge blinders on about some aspects of drag.

Thorgy wears dreads. That alone should make people dislike her.

I'm late but I'm coming in for the Thorgy hate. Holy poo poo, I can't think of anyone's drag completely turning me off like her since...Jade Jolie. For similar reasons too, playing up this overly happy persona to compensate for a very dark inner streak. Petty and unlikeable. And I watched her performance 3 times and still can't hear Sissy That Walk. I would have never known that what she did unless the judge said it.

All I want from this season is for Thorgy to get ripped to shreds for not cutting that stupid loving hair. I can't believe she came back with it somehow even longer after Michelle ripped her last time. Nooooo it's all Bob's fault. Ugh.

This cast is really eclectic; I'm rooting for Ben and Trixie but I'm also excited to see how Bebe performs. Milk is gonna bitch of the season looks like, I remember Adore mentioning in an interview that Milk was kinda arrogant and patronizing on her season. Maybe they just took of the filter this time around.

So...

I love Trixie outside of Drag Race but don't get the idea that she's just going to win. She was pretty weak her season and I feel a lot of her strengths that showed up after the show may not translate to the format still.

I don't think there's an Alaska/Chad this season and am glad of it.

This is putting the cart way before the horse, but I'm more prepared for Bendela to get set up for greatness only to crumble in the face of a harsh critique late in the game a la Alaska last all-stars. I have exactly zero proof of this, but her "I'm gonna win through kindness!" combined with her sweep of the first episode would be a grat start to a fall-from-grace narrative.

I think this is gonna be a fun season.

Ehhhhhhh if I were to bet on any one conspiracy thing being true this would be it. Alaska definitely got producer help throughout the season. (This week is bottom two for no reason! Alaska you go first and have an excellent choreographed role, Katya yours is changing last minute and is an afterthought!)

She really seems to be everywhere all of a sudden which hardly seems coincidental, even getting a Funko Pop before any regular season winner.

Trixie could be a lock for final four, but i don't think she's getting a clear winner's edit yet. so far it just seems like she's the season narrator - which i guess worked gangbusters for Bianca in her season, but maybe not so well for Alaska in her first.

also re: pops and Trixie's general ubiquity, the Trixie and Katya vice show is reallllllly popular. i work with people who know those two and love them, who haven't watched an episode of Drag Race. i think in some ways they are more recognisable and in the general public eye than most of the other queens from drag race.

Chaotic Flame posted:

yeah i really agree. i think all the queens so far this season have strengths and weaknesses, and they also seem heaps more intent on winning and bitching one another out. which loving rules for tv. bring on the drama!

I watched it a few more times just now, and I have to assume it was in a part that was cut for time. It's just not there.

My wife was confused when I told her how excited I was that Thorgy was back, until I told her that I was just looking forward to her being eliminated again.

Since those Funkopops are horrible indistinct humonculi, I figured Trixie got one because her cheek and eye makeup are pretty distinctive, aside from riding the wave of her internet fame and viceland show.

Sometimes I see those things and wonder who the Hell it’s supposed to be.

Yeah, I was at a restaurant once and they were playing Vice on the tv. It was some pseudo prank show following around some skaters, and they actually showed one of the skaters pulling down his pants, and they did a closeup of actual poo poo coming out of his rear end, as he pooped into a shoe.

We asked the bartender to change the channel.

That's probably the more likely reason. Maybe she wins, but I'm sure if she was selected because she was the winner, they would have requested they hold off on the announcement until after she is crowned.

Ehhhhhhh, define ‘better’. There’s slightly more content than a year ago, and I like a few of their shows like Desus and Mero and Hate Thy Neighbor, but Action Bronson has two goddamn shows, and I think he just gets high as poo poo and stuffs his big greasy maw in both. Though one episode his guests were Emeril and Big Freedia, and I had to explain the bounce/sissybounce genre for a good fifteen minutes to my bf.
