let's veer into - who have been the worst guest judges in the show's history?

to have jeffrey moran on more than once was a choice. miles last week was a big fat void.

i think meghan trainor had by far the worst outfit to ever be on the show. tacky!

Hey don't bring your weird onesie baggage into this bud. they're comfy and gay summer aesthetic af. You can tear my floral onesie from my cold dead hands. Lena Dunham can still tongue kiss lampreys tho for real.

God drat, i forgot how loving bad Jeffrey Moran was. His being 'brand spokesperson' or whatever made all his comments feel a terrible combination of really calculated Branding™®© fuckery mixed with actively influencing to how the episode would go down. It completely went against the, whatever you want to call it, mission statement of drag, and was the first time i remember feeling actively gross about a guest judge for sure. I guess I've never taken the time to really think about why i didn't like him but he just reeked of corporate smarm and marketability in a way that was really off putting.

And i mean does Lucian count as a guest judge because... Hoo boy. At least he wasn't actively bad on the show for the most part but golly get help girl.

I'm sure Lena Dunham will be worse. Me and the dude I'm low key hooking up with/watching this season with were calmly cuddling through the episode but both tensed up and groaned with disgust as soon as she came on which reads to me as a positive omen.

yeah. to me, drag has an element of rebellious, counter-culture punk bravaddio to it. even fishy pageant girls radiate this to me. moran was just a weird version of "the man" that for some reason the queens had to listen to. hated it!

That's what I was gonna say. I think I heard him say something other than "i loved it" or "you look beauuuuutifulll" maybe twice. He's so much better as the resident choreographer.

Flipside of the coin: Can we have Elvira and the Osbournes guest judge every day forever?

Cracker had like, one or two sweet moments in the first few eps, but her weird fixation on tearing down Aquaria has seemed pretty sour.

honestly thought Asia would do better for Miss C; she's been the whole group's drag mom in the last few eps

Yeah, Asia would be the best Miss C but I can't remember if top 4 can take it. A winner definitely can't. I'd vote for Monet or Blair if not her.

But it'll prob end up going to Vanessa or Cracker lmao. And ngl I would be totally here for her to be the first Miss C to get the title despite being the season's first out. Like just for the ridiculousness of it lmfao

I voted Asia due to her combination of quick-witted, cutting commentary, alongside a genuine (increasingly rare in today's society) level of emotional maturity and empathy.

I would make the following changes if it were magically Gelf's Drag Race:

1) Make permanent the occasional experiments they do with guesting in former queens as coaches of challenges they are considered to have excelled at. I really thought we were going to get some sort of former queens twist this season when so many were on set for the first runway.
Alyssa did a great job in her cameo; very much reminded of why I loved her, but not making it entirely about her! I didn't feel the Bianca the same way though - she should have been connected to the entire challenge, including being a panel member giving out the Snatch Game set ups. I don't blame anyone for that though, in her position I too would be all about the cocaine and $$$!

2) PanPan as permanent judge.

3) PanPan to perform every episode! DRT SPOILER Having PanPan kick the finale off with Bananarama made everything that came after appear amateur in comparison!

Yeah, I 100% expected every episode to be coached by a former Ru Girl after it was announced Alyssa would be doing choreo for a challenge. I mean ffs it's season 10, stuff it to the brim with former queens!

I was in Amsterdam last weekend, and while I was wandering around I saw a guy yelling "VAAAANJIE!!! VAAAANJIE!!!" After a few seconds, a big group about fifty meters away started yelling "VAAAAANJIEEEEE" and he looked relieved and then ran over to them. From context I'm pretty sure they'd settled on that as their contact call if one of them got lost.

I don't think there are any rules on who can and can't take it even a winner should theoretically be able to take it but it's usually treated by the fans as a sort of consolation prize for their fav who didn't make it all the way.
