In the famous words of Drag Race All Star Jujubee I want to start off this review by saying MEEEOW! RuPaul was not havin it tonight hunty! Did you see it? Did you SEE the (not so) shocking double elimination? I have to be honest I totally saw it come because the LSFYL was kind of lamesauce. Who were the bottom two? Well before we get to that let’s spill the T on tonight’s episode or RuPaul’s Drag Race.
I’m really loving the post elimination work room start they are doing this season, it’s really good. After Monica’s elimination everyone was all ears about Vivienne who right away was making some excuses about being in a group with too many loud queens. All T, All Shade, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen girl. She was mainly going after Roxxxy Andrews who I have to say is turning out to be the one to beat this season.
If you follow me on Twitter (@TommyD) or Instagram (@Tommy_D83), you will have noticed that I posted a picture of the motherload that I got from MARVEL COMICS in their latest shipment. If you missed it I’m going to post it at the end of this entry.
One of the books I got this time was the Avengers vs X-Men COLLECTED EDITION! This book is massive, honestly I was incredibly surprised and totally grateful to have gotten this gift. If you don’t know about AvX, it was the epic story of the return of the Phoenix force and how the X-Men think it was to help rebuild their mutant population after the devastation the Scarlet Witch created my whispering ”No more mutants.” This sounds like something positive, however the Avengers know the Phoenix Force coming back to Earth will do nothing but wreak havoc on everything like it has in the past.
Hello boys and girls. Hope you’re all doing well this fine festive day. Since Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and affection, I thought this would be a perfect day to profess our love to all our loyal readers (new and old). We would be nothing without you and appreciate each and everyone of you taking time out of your hectic days to visit us. Hope you all have a great Valentines Day. xoxo the Homorazzi boys.
It’s so funny how one week someone can be on top, and the next week they can just drive me crazy again. Last week, I mentioned how amazing Coco Montrese was, and this week she’s just a big whiney baby wahh wahh Alyssa is mad at me. Honestly she needs to get over it, but I guess it’s keeping us all talking about her which equals screen time. Hmmmm….
After Serena’s elimination last week our girls all came back into the workroom and we FINALLY started to get some history with Alyssa and Coco. Of course it had something to do with a pageant, in fact it was Coco who was Alyssa’s first alternate. So after Alyssa got dethroned, Coco got the crown. Drama? Not really -it’s kind of the rules, but you know queens and a crown right?
This week’s mini challenge was great, it was a Junior Drag pageant. The girls had to team up and make up a dummy to look like a junior drag queen. The winning team was Lil Pound Cake done up by Lineysha and Alaska. It was the best one for sure no complaints there. As the winners, they were made captains of two teams, where they had to create a children’s show. I’m kind of over the group challenges and I really want to see the bitches shine on their own, but I digress.
Having just aired on OUTtv last week, we’ve got the latest episode of our Homorazzi show to share with you and this one’s pretty funny. Given that it was a while ago that it was filmed, some of the content is a bit out of date but regardless, we’re pretty sure you’ll get a good laugh or two. The usual peeps make up the panel (From Left to Right: Tommy, Nic, Patrick and Adam.
In this episode, the cast talks about a few of their goals for 2013, as well as the latest in music, television, movies, and gay news. The cast also discusses their plans to attend WinterPRIDE 2013, which they did indeed end up doing this past weekend (stay tuned for pictures and video from the weekend).
Keep your eyes peeled for all of Adam’s eye rolls and one part where Patrick says something he didn’t intend to (something that sounded dirty but wasn’t supposed to) and the result is the whole crew bursting into laughter. Nic & Patrick have some serious trouble pulling it together after that.

I need to preface this by saying a few things. When I went to interview the producers of Drag Race a month ago, they told me that this was the best season of Drag Race. I have to say that already in Episode 2, this season SLAYS! The queens are SO good (except for Serena) and the challenges are already awesome. Tonight’s main challenge was FIERCE and so funny. Also, Miss COCO MONTRESE TURNED ME OUT this episode. I know I put her in my bottom girls last week and while I still don’t think she can win, she was giving me LIFE this week. She is SO funny and her shade is perfection. Ok, let’s get to it.
The episode started off completely differently this week. The first scene was when the queens walked back into the workroom after elimination. It was such a refreshing way to start the show. We got to see their feelings immediately after the elimination. So great. Serena blah blah was safe and people were not having it, especially Detox who was already missing Penny. When they got back the next day it was time for a mini challenge, a lip sync challenge. They had to lip sync one of RuPaul’s songs behind a giant RuPaul face with only their lips showing. I KNEW Detox would be one of the winners her lip sync is always perfect. The other winners were Ivy Winters and Serena blah blah. Those three became captains and had to choose teams to compete in the lip sync main challenge: Recreating a famous scene from Untucked from the past seasons. Genius.
Did you catch the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5? Wasn’t it everything? I have to tell you after the mess that was All Stars it was so refreshing to be able to go back to a brand new season with brand new contestants that we can get to know and love (or hate!) all over again. After watching the first episode I have already picked my Top 6, and have picked my Bottom 3. The rest are somewhere in the middle which is never a good thing. Now before I reveal who I think can go all the way, let’s do a lil review of what happened during the premiere episode shall we?
In customary form all the queens started to enter the work room, I can’t really judge who has IT right off the bat because everyone is super nice and dressed to the nines, but I can tell you that Detox, Roxxxy and Honey definitely shined for me, as I’m sure they did for most of you. We learned that Detox and Roxxxy have known each other for a long time, and we learned that Alaska has finally made it onto Drag Race after many years of trying. Their first challenge was an underwater photo shoot in their looks. HELLO TOP MODEL MUCH?!? Season two when April (my fave) STOLE the photo shoot. For our girls though it was a bit of a mess. Most couldn’t get down enough, some floundered and Alaska just gave up. Which was really surprising to me considering she has wanted the opportunity to be on the show for long. Yes this is a point that many are going to bring up, and yes I’m sure she has left an odd taste in people’s mouths after that but what are you gonna do? It’s episode one but right now she hasn’t really made an impact.
How can you tell RuPaul’s Drag Race is starting up today? New releases from former and current contestants!
The Drag trio of Willam, Detox and Vicky Vox have released the follow up to their MASSIVE hit Chow Down (at Chick-fil-a), a hilarious parody of Alicia Keys’ “Girl On Fire” song called, “Boy Is A Bottom“. I have to tell you these three have it. They are all funny, don’t take themselves too seriously, and can all pretty much sing. I have to give major props to Vicky on this one, in the “Chow Down” video we didn’t get to see much of her and she pretty much steals the video in this one.
And don’t forgot to watch Drag Race tonight on Logo (in the US) and OUTtv (in Canada) at 9pm, then tomorrow check back for my full review where I cut these bitches down! Enjoy the video below!
