I think thats just a regular dog. Downsy is pretty gross.

I know that they showed Ru cracking up with Michelle about Miss...Vanjie, but I wonder if it was apparent when filming how much of a fan favorite she would be. Im not sure if Id rather her come back for AS4 or a surprise on S11.

This is like your 7th post in this thread alone about how "omg the forums are so bad, but not me, I'm so virtuous..."

Its tired. Accept that you are part of the problem by continuing to frequent this place when its built on a history of articles like this

And has dozens of threads everywhere going on right now built on mocking and humiliating people for every possible reason.

You, cis autodrag, are part of the problem. You aren't above this forum in any way and directly contribute to its longevity and sustain its ugly history.

Take a breath, friendo. To me it just looks like Autodrag used a lovely word, got correctly and gently called out, and owned/recanted it. I'm not aware of the other six examples you mention but you seem to be reading a lot between the lines. I'm pretty sure everyone's aware that SA is built on inappropriate poo poo from its almost-web-1.0 birth era, and hosts such a huge variety of people that some are bound to be unfunny edgelords. It's also a great resource for all kinds of info and for ~hot takes~ on quality television.

theres a few queens from s9 who i actually find really fun and memorable and farrah is chief among them. just so unashamedly high-gloss! i really think s9 suffered from a bad edit; the reunion show seemed legitimately spiced up

i am not sure if i'm asking this without being culturally ignorant or insensitive - it's not my intent at all - but does Thailand have a pretty prominent cultural history of gender-bent performance? because i guess this would contribute to the queens in DRT being basically insanely polished, compelling performance figures.

but i am pretty clueless about thai culture (and specifically relating to this, the 'kathoey' / 'ladyboy' gender) so maybe someone more informed than me can comment

I don't know about performance, but Thailand has a pretty different idea of gender from us and nowadays they are up to like 30 gender identities. They tend to blend sex, identity, orientation, role, and presentation together in away western people would consider pretty backwards, resulting in "butch lesbian" being a gender identity with its own name and trans women being basically erased because "ladyboy" is a distinct identity there but most folks aren't interested in understanding the difference between them and trans women who can't or don't have bottom surgery.

Long live the King!

Here are some stray thoughts after episode 2:

I am really excited about this season of drag race because I think this is collectively a stronger group of queens then we've had in seasons.

That being said, I thought this challenge was pretty weird. I know these over-produced "Ru"sical challenges have been a staple for a while now but the topic being pharmaceuticals, really? I didn't quite get what this has to do with gay/drag culture, or anything at all. I also thought that the team that won had the easier song out of the two and had more to work with.

I thought the Runway was a little weird too. It sucks if the queens were told "trademark drag" because several of the queens got called out specifically on whether or not it was their "best drag", which is a much different category. Either way a theme like that makes sense for the very first episode or one of the last but not the second. Good for Rusty Bottoms for figuring out how to navigate the challenge but I think it sucks for any queen that shows a signature look (like Rusty's spots, because who wouldn't on the first challenge), then get critiqued for it, then asked the very next time for a "best" or "trademark" look.

After last week I was hoping that every challenge would be a re-do from a previous season. I guess that trend is still holding but we'll see.

Lots of people in this thread love Blair St. Clair and I just don't see it. From the first instant she walked out I thought she looked like she needs more real world experience and looked outclassed by many other queens. Also, I didn't watch her MTQ or look up anything about her but the way I am interpreting her "bringing the Broadway" is that she is a 22 year old swishy gay kid from Indiana that grew up listening to way too much musical theater. She has by far the most baby-face out of drag of anyone in this competition ever and looked like a baby giraffe trying to learn that choreography.

Alyssa Edwards was great in this episode and great to see. More Legendary Children, please and less Todrick this season.

Untucked continues to deliver but I don't like the little changes they've made since it's actually airing as an episode instead of on Youtube. Any chance someone is watching Untucked for the first time and is lost? Thank goodness there are little slides telling me that the queens are going backstage while the judges deliberate while it shows the queens walking backstage or I would have no clue what was going on. I've also noticed that the episodes used to be about 30 minutes long on Youtube and are now 20 minutes so they are aired with commercials and they have largely been cutting the eliminated queen talking while packing and getting loaded up. Has anyone noticed that there is MUCH less showing of the crew now? I miss the clap-slate.
I do like the new "Guuuuuuuurl" as the commercial intro/outro though.

Re: Drag Race Thailand. Episode 7 is great. The twist of Double Maxi Challenge is genius and I'm surprised hasn't happened in Drag Race USA before. I am also in love with Pangina. She always looks like she is having great fun with her looks.

preview for next week

http://www.vh1.com/video-clips/5j21...ok-tap-that-app

monique's still cranky about her critiques, but in the immortal words of trixie, "that's a lot of emotion for safe".

ru sounds like he's got a cold or is dosed up to the eyeballs on some sort of tranq. but man! that mini-challenge brought a tear to my eye. these girls are great!! it could have easily been very annoying and unwatchable garbage, and i mean, it still kind of was, but i loved it? i think i have fallen in love with boy vixen's look in the talking heads.

combined with her success in the mini-challenge, monique's talking heads make me think she's either cruising for a bottom-two bruising or a win this episode. monet vs yuhua is something i didn't see coming.
