Season 10, Episode 3 - Tap that App.

PROUDEST MARY
Monet and the sponge dress. She is loving herself sick over that sponge dress. For reals though. Does she just carry those bits of sponge around with her, tucked under her wig or something?

LAZIEST SUSAN
Oh no - is Mayhem a look queen only? I thought she had more moxey and pizzazz, but in the App challenge she was all “I dunno…” and they walked all over her. Maybe it was a one-off, maybe she’ll learn from it. Her comments in Untucked seemed to suggest so. Step that pussy UP gurl.

NOTABLE QUOTABLES
- Visage on Yuhua’s runway: The look was just like hairy Dalmatian with HPV.
- Monique: Asia isn’t feeling the concept. She like ‘guuurl’, and when another drag queen goes ‘guuurl’ you know it ain’t good…
- Monique (again): America, let the facts be the facts: The Vixen handed Aquaria her ass in a gift bag. Gift wrapped. There you go. Merry Christmas.
- Monique (AGAIN) on Mayhem’s apathy: Girl you better deliver cos if I’m in the bottom two because of you I’m cuttin’ up all your wigs. All of ‘em.
- Monique (AGAAAAIN!) in Untucked: I just hope some bitches … better not throw me under the bus cos they gettin’ an UNGODLY phone call. And I’m gonna record it and then I’m gonna put the bitch on YouTube.
- The entire cast not aware yet the internet sensation that has evolved: Vanjiiiie… Vanjiiie… Vanjiiiie….

BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All that Fresh Off The Bus Drag stuff was so much fun!
The Vixen being a dog, barking how good the chocolate is. Hysterical!
Blair St Clair feverishly tapping with those Raquel Welsh pigtails and Peter Pan collar. Everything!
And Monet dancing an Irish jig. I fucking LIVE.
But I lost my shit over Miz Cracker saying “I taste like your best afternoon… April 24th”. For those that don’t know, this is an obscure Streisand reference - look it up! - and now I’m more obsessed with Cracker than ever.

FROSTY TIPS
Well, I did ask for more race stuff… **awkward laugh**
I’m not gonna say too much here, as I’m sure it’ll be hotly debated within the group, but my heart kinda broke for Aquaria. Yeah she’s made her own bed, but fuck – she had Dusty come for her, Monique come for her, Cracker sort of come for her, and of course The Vixen come for her, all at once, and then when it finally broke her she had to deal with the most unsympathetic, dismissive response – how much does bitch have to take?

SHADIEST LADY
Yuhua. Just everything Yuhua.
She’s there suggesting new names for the Madam Buttrface app, not even realising it’s in fact the funniest app name of the three.
She had to be told how to do ugly drag, and she still didn’t get it..
She’s about as funny as a malignancy, but gets all shitty and defensive when her teammates try to gently critique her.
THEN THE BITCH gets on the runway and claims she wanted to put on an ugly nose but “my teammates said no, so I didn’t put it on…”
Ummm that’s a fucking bold-faced lie. THAT’S FAKE FUCKING NEWS! You are the Cambridge Analytica quiz of this season.
Why is there even a lip sync this week? Just send this bitch home?

WAIT. WHAT?
Blair St Clair coming out as a … as a … as a CHRISTIAN. **sob**
It’s like when Beyonce thanks god at the Grammys where she’s just been awarded for the song she wrote about giving blowjobs. I just … I don’t get it.

REALLY REAL
Dusty’s story, talking about the dysfunctional relationship with his parents, and getting exorcised and made to attend fucking pray the gay away therapy. This sort of story never fails to upset me. It’s atrocious. People are the worst. This queen is amazing! His parents should thank their stupid god that they have this great, creative, funny, wonderful talent, and not some dumb Christian cookie-cutter who believes god gives out awards for songs about blowjobs.
Of course, now he has a beautiful fiancé and a fabulous road ahead. Fuck off anti-gays. You’re time is so over. As Latrice would say, EAT IT.

LIVING FOR…
That ginger Pit Crew guy… I mean, I just can’t cope!
He’s sitting there in his tighty dayglo undies, all laid back and sexy like whatever bitch I got time, and you guys I seriously haven’t had sex in like FOR. EVER. and something’s just GOT TO GIVE OKAY???? **passes out**

SURPRISE SURPRISE!
Courtney Love needed subtitles. I couldn’t understand a single word. Did she have a stroke? Seriously. Was that Bell’s Palsy? She sounded like those clips of Judy Garland drunk on a late night talkshows in the 60s.

YOU’RE A WINNER BABY…
Ohmygod did y’all see Eureka’s facecrack when Asia won the week? Hahaha.
Asia did well in the Maxi, and that Tweety Bird look for the Feather runway was INSPIRED. Camp, comical, glamorous, fabulous. DIE! She earned her win this week.
That said, I begged for Monique this week. The detail in her feather cape, all that white and gold, so beautifully constructed. She looked like some kind of mythical creature come to life. And all of her cutaways were hysterical, and her self-directing wearing those big stupid beanbag titties… I was floored!

BYEEEEEEE…
Mayhem vs Yuhua lipsyncing to ‘Celebrity Skin’ by Hole:
What a GREAT track for a drag number!
Yuhua looked out of place – like Britney covering I Love Rock’n’Roll; no you don’t! – while Mayhem gave it attitude and anger. In the end Mayhem was tearing off her feathers, malting all over the runway, and it was ART. Unleash!

So Yuhua went home.
Good.

Ten's Ten's Ten's across the board - Drag Race season 10

  • Published in TV

It's back baby! As quick as you can delete a negative social media post from a 16 year old girl, the All Stars Season 3 controversy is swept under the carpet and floor launched into the world's pop culture psyche within a week.

Mother Ru is fresh from receiving her star on the Hollywood walk of Fame thanks to the legend that is Jane Fonda - and even with that career defining moment - Ru's own cage was rattled thanks to some comments made about Trans performers and Drag Race - which was quickly squashed, explained and apologised for by RuPaul and brought to task by amazing folks like Peppermint... at least it has started a conversation on the issue and should not be more than an exercise in growth, loving your fellow humans and celebrating all forms of drag and performance art.

But back to Season 10. The snippet of the first episode has been released and we are GAGGING over it. Sooo many New York City Queens are in this season, along with some real superstars of the pageant circuit and some states in the USA that have never before been represented!

Drag Race is on VH1 in the USA,  STAN in Australia and WOWPresents+ in other territories.

Check out the teaser below!
