Bebe's verse last week was an instantly iconic meme for the same reasons as Dragometry...but Dragometry weren't in the top that week.

All Stars 3 was....different

Can't wait to see Season 10, I just saw the first 10mins and all of these girls have personnality (which is very good) you can already feel who's gonna be first or second booted but you can't say they lack personnality. I think it's gonna be one of the strongest top 6 of all seasons. Season 9 was kinda strong too but Season 10 feels stronger.

I just saw Drag Race Thailand's Snatch Game and it was Snatch Game on acid, I did not understand a thing + they have like 14 challenges each episodes I don't know what they are basing their judgement on, sometimes it's just the runway, it feels very weird. But it's sure entertaining.

I don't get the Miz Cracker hype, she's a funnier version of Trixie (and I never liked her). I'm all about Asia and Monique this season.

My favourite from this current season much to my surprise is the lovely Blair St. Claire. I didn't think she'd be a queen for me at all, but i'm charmed by her personality and love her gorgeous vintage looks. I usually never lean towards the really fishy queens but there's something about her I just adore. She's funny, likable and sincere.

I also love me some Jewish icon, the lovely Miz Cracker. I love her sense of humour, her wisdom, her slight awkwardness. I'm always excited to see what she'll do next. I'll be shocked if she doesn't make it to the final episode.

Kameron Michaels completes my trio of current faves. Took a while for me to warm to her but i've enjoyed her immensely the past few episodes. In fact, i'm getting kind of annoyed by the fact she hasn't won a challenge yet. She has her shortcomings when it comes to acting as she's quite an introverted person, but her looks have been absolutely incredible. If they're not going to let her win look focused challenges then I fear she won't triumph at anything.



I mean... come the hell on!? Best look on this show I think i've ever seen. She was robbed in the "Last Ball On Earth" challenge as well.


Oh and side note: Kalorie Karbdashian Williams was my pre show favourite so...

I do like Asia & Monique. Asia I think might even be my #2 at this point.

My favorite before her elimination was actually Yuhua. Even though she didn't necessarily deliver in the challenges, she's still got a great sense of humor, loads of talent, and a hottttt and FLEXIBLE body.

Episode 6 spoilers below

Blair's story made me feel really sad, and then even sadder after she was sent home. It was such a weird task to be honest. It was clear that Blair, Vixen and Cracker were the weakest team, but I didn't feel like they were horrific or anything, and it was obviously edited to make it look like they were super awkward and things weren't landing. Judging on performances, I don't think Blair deserved the bottom. She was sweet, charming and herself as usual, and it's not exactly her fault that she was the target of shade that wasn't apparently landing. It just really broke my heart to see her leave like that. That was a moment for Ru to do a double Shantay in my opinion, especially after Blair's confession. Not even as a sympathy kind of thing, but because I felt a lot being channeled into Blair's performance and it was powerful. It wasn't like "wow splits" but it was emotional. Vixen's "wow splits" were great though. Gotta hand it to her.

I'm realizing that this is such a strong series. Even the queens I dislike (mainly for personality reasons) The Vixen and Aquaria are both very much talented. I'm sad to lose my favourite and kind of shocked as I thought she'd go much further, but it's such a strong year. Some of them are like yo-yos but each one of them has their redeeming qualities. Monet has been questionable prior to tonight but worked so well with Eureka (those two always need to team up). Monique I think is messy but i'm warming to her personality. It's very hard to tell what will happen next exactly. My worry though is that Kameron looks a bit like a sitting duck despite non stop being safe or high. I don't want her to go but sooner or later she'll end up in the bottom because of an awkward acting challenge most likely. Hope i'm wrong as I love her. STOP TAKING MY FAVES RU!

I just watched this seasons reunion episode. AWFUL. It's left a bad taste in my mouth. I love Ru, but he's basically made this whole season like an episode of Dr. Phil. I want to hear about the challenges and the art these queens have given us. Instead the show and this season in general has just been about forced confessionals. Not that I don't generally agree with Ru's advice (I think it's great actually), but all this wringing of their emotions for tv doesn't feel right. If these confessions come from them naturally then sure, fine.. but that's simply not the case.

I absolutely loathed the bit where practically the whole room was ganging up on Kameron, and it changed my opinions on some of the queens. You can't treat introverted people in that way. It's very clear that man Kameron is a shy and reserved person. Just because she's being fun, loud or whatever it was they accused her of being on twitter, that doesn't mean she's a fake person. It's easier online to type. I know this personally from being an extremely shy and quiet (often mistaken for cold) person in my day to day life offline. Talking to people online is a whole different ball game. That whole situation sucked, and I ended up feeling for Kameron in that moment. A very relatable situation. People are all wired different. Just because someone doesn't have a loud ass mouth, or feels comfortable being a conversation starter, it doesn't make them bad person, or someone who doesn't care. No one owes you a bucket of sunshine each time you cross eyes with them. Some of us don't have that sunshine, or find it hard to show it to you.


I don't know who I want to see win this season, to be honest with you. Aquaria I will say is the most deserving, in terms of both looks and a surprisingly good record on acting/character challenges. I disliked her at the start of the season and i've ended the season being quite ok with her. She's very talented. I don't love her looks all the time, but I think she's always admirable. Eureka i'm a bit up and down with. I actually don't mind her personality, and I think she's done well throughout the season. Her looks though have been kind of hit and miss for me. As a queen I find her fun and I enjoyed her confessionals probably the most, along with Cracker. I always enjoyed hearing what they had to say. Asia I think is overrated, despite having some very strong weeks, I find it weird how she's done kind of poor in acting/performance challenges but has been carried to the final, based on the strength of her looks which in my opinion have been extremely mixed. I did like her mermaid look however, and I thought she should have won the saboteur challenge based on how dripping in evil her dark character looked (amazing!). I find her a bit difficult though of a person to warm to. I don't get this "mother" thing the other girls were talking about, cause a mother would never tell her child "you're not a star". I know she apologized for that moment but I find Asia to be quite a hypocritical person. There's love there, but she's to me like that stern auntie you're a bit afraid to be around. I think she would be the wrong winner. Kameron is my personal favourite of the four left, and I do believe she should have won more than just one challenge (feather look robbed!). As it stands though, she's clearly the awkward one of the four, who's just had to fight three weeks in a row to keep her place in the competition. She's to me the look queen of the season (extremely underrated in that department), is a very talented dancer and has been the underdog of the season. There's no big personality there to latch onto, and that's obviously a problem for some people. I like her though a lot. She hasn't been super entertaining as a personality but she's made me gasp multiple times with her outfits and her lip syncs. Plus the best two runways of the season (her feather fantasy and her OAP moment).


This felt like it was gearing up to be the best season ever, but for me it's going out on a bit of a fizzle. Unfair early exits (Blair, Mayhem), queens I was hyped for underperforming (Yuhua, Miz Cracker:(), having to endure The Vixen's cocky, stone face for half the season. Lot's to enjoy this season, but certain things like how preachy episodes were really made things a... drag to sit through at times. Hopefully the next All Stars will provide the goods (just might judging from two of the leaked namesxheat).

PREEEEEEEEEEACHHHHHHHH. May have been the worst episode of Drag Race ever. I hate reunions. They're just not fun.

That bit at the end when Ru was asking them who they each thought should win. No one said Kameron but they kept cutting to her downtrodden looking face:( The whole episode was awful. The only thing I liked about it was the Vanjie bit and The Vixen's chair look that happened about half way into the episode. The drama this season has been uncomfortable, and not at all entertaining.

That drama with Vixen... thank god mother of drag she left in the beginning of the ep. She didn't even realize how stupid she looked during that fight with Eureka and what exactly Ru wanted her to understand. Eureka also didn't look good but at least she admitted that.


Imho, Aquaria will win the whole thing to please a younger audience. She improved in the end tho. I kinda started liking her myself o__0

Kameron - I only liked her Maleficent look. As for being shy... excuse me but what's the point in applying for reality show if you're not into communicating with other contestants. However Ru believed in her by saving her ass so many times. Did she really justify his hopes is another question.

Asia - I dislike her personality very much. I didn't like some of her sayings and costumes in the previous eps. I'd rather have Monet instead of Asia.
Some fans of the show use a racist card but... guuurls, really? In front of Ru? SMH.

Eureka - my #1. If she wins I'm gonna have incredibly delicious dessert in her honour (and intense training in a few hours after that :lol: ). ps. She's millions & millions light years behind Latrice though.

I honestly don't care for this season anymore, stopped watching mainly due to work and lack of spare time (and interest because Monet, Blair and Monique are not in it anymore). I thought I liked Kameron until now, and I really see what other girls are saying, I got that feeling from the start which is why it was hard for me to warm up to her. Asia is my personal fav, not like Trinity last season but close, although I really don't mind any of them winning, unlike Sasha last season. But I am not pleased with the finale spoilers, I think we are getting our first big girl winner. #elephantqueen

Alaska in the new porn ep from a famous studio gives me life (she was fully clothed & didn't take part in the action tho and she was mentioned in the cast list as the main star :cool:) :lol:
Needless to say she was better than everyone there, sorry guys.

In the end I almost choked on a cake :lol: Great show.



Watching the show during a heavy thunder storm was even more dramatic :p
