Does Canada have any sort of ballroom or pagent scene or is it mostly just bar shows?

Yes to both. Toronto and Montreal in particular have very active ballroom scenes.


Who the gently caress knows about the rest of the country though I only care about the cities that matter.

I'm woefully out of the loop on the Vancouver scene aside from a few regular shows.

I went into this season especting to dislike Lemon

Same, but the more confessionals they got the more I realised that I have a Lemon in my social circle. A lot of us probably do, and once you get to see a bit of more their true self, it's hard not to love them despite the negative reception to how they initially present. That's why I always roll my eyes at people who refuse to ever re-consider a first impression!

Can someone please help me understand the ~Priyanka you're not perfect, just look at your ears~ comment from Rita in the werkroom?

I noticed and empathised with the ear thing last week, and had assumed it was an eczema flare up coinciding with that point in the filming (a similar thing happens to my husband's hands when stressed a few times a year). It's almost entirely unnoticeable in the "talking-head" confessionals we all love her for. If my interpretation is even close to correct then as much as I have been LOVING Rita, that was especially cunty and I really didn't like it at all. There are SO MANY things you could hilariously read Pri to poo poo for, without having to attack something they have no control over and are obviously self-conscious about - watch how Priyanka's mood just totally deflates after the comment for that rest of the scene.

I was not feeling that Snatch Game at all - it felt like most just were flatlining. Lemon was pretty decent but the rest: meh. I can't believe how Priyanka botched Miss Cleo - done well would have destroyed everyone. Look at how Alexis slayed everyone with her fortune teller.

Stoked for Tom Green next week though.

Snatch Game was probably one of my favourite overall, but it wasn't like crazy laugh out loud funny like some of the even worst Snatch Games can be. There was some flatlining but Priyanka and Kiara's performances were probably the worst, with Priyanka's being straight up awkward. But had four solid characters and I really enjoyed watching the queens all interact and play off eachother so much and so well.

Also I'm just glad someone finally did Joan and it wasn't a bomb.

now can someone loving do bette midler already

how the gently caress do we have like 20 seasons of this loving show and nobody has done or ever referenced the divine miss m

i like to think the bette midler runway in s10 was ru passive aggressively pointing out that fact

I'm confused. I might have awful taste, but I thought Priyanka was really laxadaisical for that lipsync. I was pleased but also very surprised when she pulled it out. Kiara just had so much more energy.

It's a song that can definitely be done both high energy or more sexy/intense. Priyanka was definitely the latter and remained consistent, where I think Kiara almost had TOO much energy at the end and was giving me Kenya Michaels vibes in the back half of the lip sync. The first half she was fire tho.

e: one thing I noticed was how intently Priyanka kept her attention on and pointed her performance toward the judges rather than playing for the camera, which i fuckin love even if it means we don't get as many shots of her giving good mouth

I also love how the “smell my fingers” interaction caused the snatch game to further devolve into chaos. ilona getting up to deepthroat jimbo’s finger. lemon not letting anything stop her from being continuously in motion. hell, even brooke lynn got swept up in the atmosphere by mugging on the contestant’s podium. I’m still thinking about it a couple of days later

let me tier it off (EVERYBODY loves tier lists!)

A: Lemon, Rita, Bobo

I screamed when she told bobo-as-liza “your mom and I invented snatch game. you miss your mother? then smell my fingers!”

We had to pause for a couple of minutes to hyperventilate after that line.

My faves right now are Jimbo, Lemon, Rita, and Priyanka (despite this week). If I had to pick a winner I'd be Jimbo all the way though.

e: Also is it just my screen or is DR Canada colored weird? Everyone who isn’t lily white looks orange on my screen.

It looks like Canadian TV, it's just how it is. If you have the ability to adjust the video in VLC or whatever try knocking down the saturation about 5%.

Anyways Jimbo should win.

I've noticed the cameras are like... extra sharp? You can see a lot of the makeup being a bit splotchy and the wig lines are ultra sharp. I dunno if it's my TV or my source?

that tier list was strictly for snatch game performance. I really like jimbo/rita (and to a lesser extent, bobo, priyanka, and lemon) but I am on the rita VIA rail until we pull into montreal. I would live if a québécois won CDR S1

Hmm! So, while I think most programming on CBS is garbage, they do have a new season of Star Trek Discovery (which is chef's kiss) coming out soon, and I am a HUGE Survivor fan (I bought a Survivor buff recently, but stopped following the Survivor thread here at TVIV due to rampant misogyny), so I might finally be willing to subscribe.

Brilliant idea for UK Snatch game 2: Big Brother narrator. The queen doesn't get into drag, and just sits underneath the table over-pronouncing every vowel in every word the whole time.
