We had a big weekend for us Drag Race fans, we finally got to see the new cast for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6. Now if you’re like me and have eyes, ears and a computer, you probably knew this cast already. The cast of RPDR is literally the worst kept secret in gay town. I will give MAJOR props to each queen who consistently deny deny deny, confidentiality agreements and all. My favourite part (and this is really silly), is when they release the boy pictures all the fans just started naming off names of each of the girls on the leaked list thinking it was them, when it was someone else completely. Also LOTS of nepotism this season. Cast members are drag mothers, sisters, best friends of previous contestants which gets me to think…is that all there is left out there?
Anyhow let’s get to know these bitches and I’ll tell you who my top girls are (I’ve never been wrong before!)
You already know Adore. If you watch American Idol you know in season 7 we were introduced to Danny Noriega! Well here he is again on reality TV. For the past 2 years Adore has dominated the online fan vote. However last year even though he was heads and tails above Penny, she got put on. SHADE! Anyway she finally made it on. She will do well on the competition I think.
April is this years Puerto Rican queen. Do you think she will survive the Snatch Game where every PR girl fails?
Jinkx Monsoon’s sister, cast mate and another Seattle girl. She automatically gets points from me for being from the Pacific North West, and also she has one of the best promo shot in my opinion.
BIANCA DEL RIO
LEGEND DARLING! NYC LEGEND! I have heard of, seen and worshiped BDR from afar. Her name is known all over the place and I heard she can read you to filth! Let’s hope she doesn’t cross over to the dark side like Phi Phi or Roxxxy did.
You might as well just give her the crown now. Courtney is the first non US citizen (although I’m SURE she has her papers sorted) to be on the show. She is stupid talented, insanely sweet and gorgeous. She can sing live, dance, act all of that stuff (I’m sure she can lip sync as well). She even has her own wig line (WigsByVanity). I’m giving season 6 to Courtney already.
Pandora Boxx’s drag mother and the reasons she started doing drag, Darienne is our only big girl this season. Is this the year a big girl takes it?
I’m kind of OBSESSED with Gia Gunn. She looks like a ninja.
Don’t know much about Joslyn Fox to be honest. Which I kind of like, it means she can land anywhere in the competition.
Another LA queen! (Seriously..how many this season?)
Ok we need to take moment. Laganja is a baby drag and is the 3rd member from the house of Edwards on the show. (Alyssa is her mother). I have kept an eye on her for the last little while and this girl is exactly what I look for in my drag queens. Much like the other members of the house of Edwards, Laganja is a trained dancer and an unbelievable performer. Wherever she lands in the competition won’t matter, she will be a star.
I LOVE the name, I also love the look. I ALSO love the boy MEOW!
MILK (The Queen)
BABY DRAG! That’s what my friend Yerxa tells me anyway. She’s part of the Dairy Queens drag group. I don’t know where she’s going to land but I am intrigued. Very much so.
TRINITY KARDASHIAN BONET
She has Kardashian in her name. HAHAHAH.
My roommate LOVES her! I’ve watched a few videos, seen the outfits and I kind of live. I’m sure she will have some good treats for the runway!
There you have it, the 14 queens for season 6. I’ve got my faves and here’s the list.
- Courtney Act
- Bianca Del Rio
- Darienne Lake
- Laganja Estranja
- Ben DeLacreme
- And I wanna suck face with Magnolia Crawford in boy form so I’ll put her on there.
I’m going to make this a showdown between Courtney and Bianca though. I think those are the two heavy hitters this season for sure.
Check out the SUPERTEASE trailer (which is AWESOME, someone got a higher budget!) and sound off in our poll. Who is your favourite for this season?
