This is what it’s all about. The Snatch Game is the episode where we are going to be separating the boys from the true queens. To impersonate a character is tricky. You have to make sure you choose one that has a quirk that you can really play up. If you take a character and just make them a disaster that’s not cute as we saw. But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself so let’s start at the beginning.
The mini challenge this week had to do with chickens. I don’t really know it was kind of silly. Phi Phi won and got a phone call home, but she gave it to Chad to call his partner because it was their anniversary. Cute.
Enough about the mini challenge because this was ALL about the Snatch Game. Some of the stars they chose were great, and some were bad…
Oh yes…yes yes yes! I haven’t laughed so hard at an episode in SUCH a long time. I gotta tell ya if Latrice isn’t in your top queens honey she better be after this week.
The whole episode this week had to do with getting locked up, which was funny because Latrice actually was in the slammer. The mini challenge this week the queens had to pair up, get handcuffed and do each other’s faces for the mugshot. It was fabulous! Latrice and Milan did this amazing boobs out teeth missing thing, but it was Willam and Madame LaQueer who won…which I didn’t get. The blue paint or something. Whatever, Ru makes weird decisions.
Onto the main challenge. Show creator Max Mutchnick was the guest judge. The queen were split up into two groups and had to act out a scene from a sitcome. Each had a specific gag, Team Willam had jokes about nuts (like balls) and Team LaQueer had jokes about beavers (like vaginas). Get it? On team LaQueer, Dida shone like crazy. she was absolutely incredible. But it was Latrice Royale from team Willam stole the entire episode. Someone needs to snatch her up and put her on tv. She was SO funny as Large Marge I was DYING! She was clearly the winner already.
And we’re back! Week three, two queens gone and eleven to go. This week there was a really incredible special guest, PIYAH MARTELL who is a YouTube star. Piyah rose to fame on YouTube because she lip syncs and makes amazing music video in drag, but she has no legs. Hers is a story of triumph and it was a really great moment.
The mini challenge this week is to create a headpiece with a butterfly theme for her to wear in her next YouTube video. Phi Phi, Kenya & Jiggly won the mini challenge, but because Phi Phi and Kenya won a coin toss, they were the team captains for the main challenge…Infomercials for two Ru’s albums: Glamazon & Champion. The captain each chose their teams and surprisingly, LaQueen was chosen last. Um…didn’t she win last week’s challenge? Why was she picked last? And the clincher, Kenya didn’t even want her. She threw a little shade towards her too saying Puerto Rico was not happy with her, so she didn’t want her. HA! Just sprinkling that shade over the show, I’m starting to like Kenya a bit ;)
We’re back with Episode 2, racers! This week on RuPaul’s Drag Race we saw a lot of padding, a lot of backstory (in the untucked) and my drag race boyfriend BillyB was back on the judges table. After Jiggly did the ceremonial wiping of the mirror and after a read between the lines video message from Ru, we find out that the mini challenge is about padding that ass till you can’t pad it no more. Sharon Needles gave us a big tip by the way. When making your padding, shape it like Africa…fitting no?
Chad Michaels (yeay), Phi Phi Ohara (double yeay) and Willam were chosen as the winners and team captains for the next challenge, which is one of the best I’ve seen on the show. WRESTLING CHALLENGE! Three teams of four were made up, and those teams were split into Faces and Heels – The Good and the Bad team respectively. Madame LeQueer starting making excuses and I started rolling my eyes. I don’t get the whole excuses thing I really REALLY don’t, but when it came to show time she was amazing. Madame LaQueer and Chad took on Sharon Needles and Milan and the show was fabulous. Latrice Royale (triple yeay) was paired with Kenya and they took on Phi Phi and Lashauwn who really didn’t impress this week, although everyone else in the group did fabulous. Willam was paired with Dida and they took on Princess and Jiggly, this group was the worst. Anyone else notice that Jiggly is ONLY wearing her flat converse knee highs every week? I mean come on throw a heel on, you’re a drag queen.
HELLLLLLLOOOOOO RACERS! Welcome back to a brand new year, a brand new season, and brand new queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race (which I will only refer to as RPDR online). Thirteen new queens are chosen, Ru’s budget is much higher and we’ve got some fabulous talent. Patrick gave you a bit of a rundown and I’m gonna give you my top queens. After seeing the first episode, my snap judgements were pretty much on point and I’ve got my Top 4 this season. Let’s get to it.
Queen’s entrance time! One by one they start filling in and of course want to make the biggest entrance possible. My favorites are already standing out but it’s not until the very LAST two that we see two of the biggest stars shine. Second to last is SHARON NEEDLES, who after this episode has already set herself WAY ahead of the pack as the most entertaining (and IMHO, one of if not THE best contestant on this show ever) walks into the workroom looking like a spooky witch and a MAJOR breath of fresh air just swept through the room. Not since Nina has there been a contestant that excited me this much. Following Sharon was LATRICE ROYALE who came painted to the nines and a personality that blew UP that workroom. LOVE her. LOVE LOVE LOVE her. After the entrances, Ru comes onto the screen welcoming everyone and telling them they are competing for a bunch of prize and 100k! 100K!!!! I wonder how season 1 winner is feeling only getting 0.65 cents.
We’re less than a week away from RuPaul’s Drag Race premiere, but we’ve got an amazing premiere from one of it’s stars. Manila Luzon just dropped her video for her single, “Hot Couture“.
As is customary with almost every single reality star, after their first season on air, a vanity single is soon to follow. Some are ok, some are absolutely terrible (Who gon check me boo much?) and once in a while you’ll have one that is actually pretty good. Hot Couture is one of those songs, and the video is fabulous. With every Drag Race star releasing a single almost every single month, this one definitely stands strong as the best video release to date.
Scenes of Manila getting done up, rocking different looks and even doing a little choreography pepper this video, but the best part about it is the story of the little boy who I’m assuming is mini Manila. Putting on some earring, some lipstick and the clincher when mommy walks in and brings him a pair of heels. Absolutely ADORABLE!
Special shout out to the diva with the beard and full face, I’m going to bite that look I promise you. Enjoy HOT COUTURE below!
This coming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race is going to be more about the girls working together and supporting each other, unlike previous years where the girls are fighting and trying to bring each other down. HA! As if! This season looks crazier than ever, as evident by the Season 4 preview and Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked as well. As you know, Untucked is when the queens debrief backstage with a little liquid courage from Absolut Vodka. In the preview for this season’s Untucked, expect the same crazy fights and drama and then some.
My favorite clip from the Untucked preview has one queen saying, “You don’t have any talent. This is a show for talented people, not people that know how to buy f*cking shoes… and you should not be here!” What does Willam calmly said in response to this, with a flip of the hair? “Your tone seems very pointed right now.” LOL.
RuPaul promises that this season will be “over the mother f*cking top” with more sassy stars, more drama, and that for the first time in Drag Race history, they’ll be breaking all the rules. The new season premieres one week from today, on Monday, January 30 on Logo and OUTtv with a 90-minute episode.
We’re only a month away from the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and to hold us over, we’ve been given a “Happy Ru Year” with a little teaser of RuPaul’s “The Beginning” track. The song is from her lastest album, “Glamazon” and is available on Amazon and iTunes.
The lyrics are perfect for New Year’s Eve as she sings in the chorus, “This is the beginning of the rest of your life”. In the verse she sings in the preview below, she sings, “That was then, this is now. Here we go, starting over. You decide, change your mind. miracles happen every day.” Okay, so the lyrics in the verses are tad cheesy, but the chorus is hot (and I’m not just saying that).
Give it a listen below. The song will be featured in the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Mondays on LogoTV (and OUTtv in Canada) starting January 30th.
