RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Jinkx Monsoon graces the cover of the latest issue of Next Magazine. The Season 5 winner, along with her Final 3 sisters sit down with the publication to talk about their experience on the Logo show. Check out a few excerpts from their chat.
Jinkx Monsoon on the filming three separate endings: “It’s at least less bonkers now that Ru tweeted about [shooting three finales] and we don’t have to keep it a secret. It makes it a photo finish and nail-bitingly awesome.”
Alaska Thunderfvck on Alyssa and Coco’s drama: “The thing about [Alyssa and Coco’s] drama w as they were smart about it. They got there and were like, ‘we have drama but we’ll talk about it later.’ You know you’re going to get a few episodes out of your storyline that way!”
Roxxxy Andrews on diversity among the winners: “It’s time to crown a plus-size girl, and no Latino has ever won.”
In other Jinkx Monsoon-related news, the Pacific Northwest queen gets a remix treatment like her RPDR Season 5 castmate Alyssa Edwards. Jinkx delivers a spoken-word monologue in the character of Little Edie, whom Drag Race viewers will remember from the Snatch Game episode, set to the tune of Two Dudes In Love’s ambient chill trans beat. I prefer Alyssa’s remixed track better, but Jinkx’s “Schizophrenic” is perfect to play in the background at your next gathering. Check it out below.
Well it’s here. After months of competition, a couple weeks of reruns and recaps, endless drama and some of the best/worst drag I’ve seen on tv we have a winner for the 5th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Before we get to the winner let’s recap a bit or the reunion shall we?
As is tradition we have a reunion episode where we get one last moment to see our Season 5 queens on the tube before they disappear into reality TV history (except for Alyssa, who is getting her own spinoff ALLEGEDLY!). I have to tell you I actually completely forgot that half of those queens were even on the show. But I guess that’s what happens when you get eliminated at the beginning.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 comes to a close tonight. Who will take it all? Alaska, Jinkx Monsoon or Roxxy Andrews? Before RuPaul crowns “America’s Next Drag Superstar” and “Miss Congeniality,” all fourteen queens sit down to rehash all the drama served throughout the season. And there was plenty of it.
With regards to any reality show, it’s all about the reunion shows. After seeing all the confessionals, I’m sure all the queens will have plenty to say. The reunion special where the winner was announced taped on May 1. All the Season 5 contestants along with fan favorites from previous years donned their fiercest outfits on the red carpet. I personally liked Detox’s look the best. I literally had to do a double take when I saw her monochromatic makeup. I thought it was due to some black and white Photoshop magic. Alas it was all her. Check out all the looks below from this season’s crop and cast your vote on who werked it out the best.
Say what you will about this queen, she was fierce on Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I loved her from the second I saw her promo and I will love her until the end of time. Miss Roxxxy Andrews was recently in Vancouver for the hottest Thursday night in town LIBERACE and natually I got to chat with her before she went on stage.
What I will tell you about Roxxxy is that she is incredibly sweet. Sure we had some GREAT sass moments, but she really took the time to spend time with us here and get to know everyone. Hopefully people will let the reality TV drama disappear because Roxxxy is incredible. Check out the interview below!
I’m totally late this week with my RuPaul’s Drag Race recap probably because I’m so deflated from the end of this season that I might’ve just given up completely. My favorite doesn’t stand a chance to win so why bother right?
As in previous years the final three had lunch with Ru (Tic Tacs…yet again. New shtick please), a sit down with Gloria Allred, they had to film a court scene playing three different characters (another acting challenge), and film RuPaul’s new video for “Beginning.”
Confession time. With exception to only a couple of episodes, I haven’t really been watching Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The only way I keep up to date with everything is from Tommy’s weekly interviews with the eliminated queen. Based on his level of excitement for the phone call and line of questioning, I can pretty much figure what transpired. After watching this brilliant fan video, I’m making it a priority to watch the fabulousness that is Alyssa Edwards.
B. Ames remixed all of Alyssa’s memorable quotes from this season and created an awesome little track called “Drop Dead Gorgeous.” Keeping it real, it’s a lot catchier than most of the produced singles by former Drag Race contestants. Props to Matthew Bell as well for editing such an entertaining music video.
It’s easy to see why Alyssa Edwards is a fan favorite. With her hilarious facial expressions and even more hilarious one-liners, this woman is reality gold. It’s no wonder, a rumored spinoff is in the works. RuPaul even brought Edwards with him for the MTV Movie Awards last week. When questioned why Ru invited Alyssa, he sent a tweet seemingly confirming Alyssa’s show. Check out “Drop Dead Gorgeous” below. I guarantee you’ll love it.
Oh Detox. One of my favorites in the world Detox. I have been a fan of hers since forever ago. I absolutely love her because shes original and creative, doesn’t give a crap and just stays true to herself.
We gabbed about the “bullying” nonsense from Monday’s RuPaul’s Drag Race episode, her hardest challenge and her team up with Willam and Vicky Vox. Detox is so ridiculously fierce but I personally don’t think she was represented well on the show. That’s my opinion and it’s the right one #sorryboutit!
Take a listen below, and we will be seeing more of Detox at the reunion!
I don’t think there has ever been such a huge amount of opinion regarding an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race as there is about last night’s episode. I’m not going to talk about the show because I already did in my review. What I want to do is post Roxxxy Andrew’s reaction to the episode last night.
Here it is:
