MEET THE QUEENS -SEASON 10


The newest Ru girls are ready to bring it to the runway serving you the fiercest season yet. Some you may recognize from our Grande Dame posts,  and others I thought should get on- did!  Who would have thought 10 seasons later we'd still be watching queens in a drag show? It's great that the show is so highly rated, and seeing people embrace the show. One of the queens was only 11 when the show premiered....that's enough to make you feel old!!!! Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres Thursday March 22nd at 8 on VH1.....

AND NOW THE QUEENS for consideration.

Aquarius’s are known to be unpredictable, but Aquaria? Girls, she is that and then some. This high energy, high fashion, high maintenance New York/Philadelphia based queen  is here to become the superstar of season 10. This is the baby..but she is also Sharon Needles' drag daughter and having seen her perform last year....POLISHED AND performance ready. She should place very high in top 5.

Texas is back in a big way on season 10. Asia O’Hara can do it all. She is an ever changing, drag chameleon that is ready to put in the w-e-r-k that will get her the crown.A formidable competitor on the pageant circuit, Asia won Miss Gay America the first time she entered. Multi-talented Asia has a costuming business on the side designing for color guard teams and ice skaters. I think she will be a top 4.

All the way from Indianapolis, please welcome to the competition, Blair St. Clair! Can season 10 handle this triple threat, old Hollywood inspired queen?Blair plans to sing, dance and act her way across the finish line of the competition. I think she has a great look, but I see a early depart or mid way queen here.

Self-described as dark, glamorous and trashy, Dusty Ray Bottoms defies categorization. I describe Dusty as Acid Betty meets Milk. Look for the punky queen with the signature dotty-faced makeup, to add some fun moments. A Kentucky native who moved to the Big Apple to pursue acting, Dusty channeled his desire to perform into drag.Dusty could go either way, but should be a mid girl, or worst a early departure.

She’s back! Season 9’s Southern belle departed way too soon after injuring her knee, but Eureka o' Hara is back following knee surgery and is still P.H.A.T, pretty hot and tasty... and hungrier than ever to prove herself. I really grew to like her in her season, and I would love to see her win for a big girl, but I still don't see a win here. 

Kalorie Karbdashian Williams' infectious giggle might be the first thing to enter a room, but it’s her gravity-defying ass that catches all eyes as she leaves. This twerk queen proudly flaunts her curvaceous body in a daring, sexy dance performance. This Albuquerque native is a sweet as can be... but not sure about this one. I see a early to first departure for this queen.

This muscle Barbie, Kameron Michaels,  from Nashville is a chameleon queen with a fishy face and a built bod.You’re equally as likely to find this tattooed muscle queen down at the gym pumping iron as you are to find her performing at her local drag bar in Nashville. Deliberately exuding strength and beauty. As much as I'd like to see a win...his lip synchs and dances are strong and on point, but the acting challenges worry me, so I see a top  7 queen here.

Let the mayhem begin!!!!! I have touted this one for some time to make it on the show. Mayhem Miller enters the competition with big expectations as the sister of “Drag Race” alumni like Raven, Morgan McMichaels, Delta and Detox. Mayhem dazzles her WeHo audiences with polish and sass. I see a top queen  here, but not sure top 4. But the name !!!!

This NYC comedy queen comes from Drag royalty. The daughter of Bob The Drag Queen, but is much more polished then Bob, Miz Cracker’s wit will slay the competition and she’ll look good doing it. Pretty and witty, Miz Cracker captures you with her beauty and then surprises you with the belly laughs. Having seen her several times, I hope to see a top 3 here.  I dare say I'm team Cracker for the win!!!

Monet  X Change blurs the lines between comedy performance and New York City grit. A degree in opera performance means she’s the singer of the season, while her bright, colorful street style ensures that all the judges’ eyes will be on her. She will also be the lip syncher to not go up against. She could place top 4 as well.

This creative, well-rounded queen from Kansas City, knows how to do hair and makeup, dance and make an entrance. A devoted Christian, Monique Heart enters the competition hungrier than most to win and with a promise to live up to her moniker as the “Heart of Season 10.” 

Hailing from Chicago’s South Side, The Vixen combines elements of political art and protest into her performances. This vocal woke queen brings both activism and fire to the stage — and is not about to take on her competition lying down. But is this the place for that?

Get these cookies, baby! “Drag Race” Season 3 and “All Stars” Season 1 star Alexis Mateo’s drag daughter, Miss Vannnnnnjie...or Vanessa Vanjie Mateo brings electricity to the stage with her high-energy dance performances and winning personality. But will that be enough for a win? I see a early departed.

Originally hailing from China, Yuhua  Hamasaki moved to Manhattan’s Chinatown when she was 7. She is futuristic, fiery and a fierce bombshell. Now a sickening seamstress by day and a hard-working queen by night, Yuhua regularly sews gowns for New York royalty like Peppermint. She could be the dark horse to watch for.


Get to know the queens...

Go ahead henny's... who do you like, and what's your guess for a win? This is quite an assemblage of queens, I'll say that.

  1. Love Miz Cracker's look and energy. Kalorie is the sweetest person ever. I just want to hug her. Her smile is everything.

    So I like those two. It will be interesting to follow her predictions...your usually pretty good.

  2. *Disclaimer* I know all the queens have returned home and are back out preforming. If you queens on the circuit know the tea, please don't spill the tea here. Thank you in advance.

  3. When you're role model is Tyra Sanchez...Oh honey.... we gonna have a problem, m'kay!

    I have my money on a Kameron, miz cracker and Asa top three. But you know I love my big girl Eureka deeply.

  4. Im excited for Yuhua!! SHE LOOKS LIKE THE ASIAN BIANCA DEL RIO!

  5. I tried watching this show. It was too much drag queen overload for my delicate sensibilities! I think I'll stick to Kid's Baking Championship. There's no snarking and bitching in the kitchen :)
    I did enjoy the RuPaul show where the queens did makeovers on "ordinary" people. That was fun, but short lived. I'll shut up now.

    1. I think the show is so popular, is because of the runway part of the show. Many in towns don't get to see drag shows, so its like watching a weekly one. This is the only reality show I watch. I mostly watch BBC shows and a few shows in the us.

    2. Dearest Maddie, I just love how well rounded you are! You are adorably eclectic in your tastes. If I understood English, I would watch BBC shows too. Alas, I only speak American so I need subtitles. It's a good thing I own Sherlock on dvds! I will continue to come here for my drag queen knowledge. It's educational and entertaining.

    3. Thanks Dutchess Deedles. I particularly love the comedies. And am quite fond of Rosemary and Thyme and Midsummer Murder reruns. I love your comments dear.

    1. I have the feeling the base there is getting tapped out with available queens.

  7. I'm more excited about these queens than the rest of All Stars 3 now. Let's hope season 10 is gonna turn up the heat!

    I'm surprised you didn't do a post on the All Stars Season??? What do you think of the season, and be crowned?

    1. I usually don't watch All Stars shows. but I am watching this season. I didn't do a post since these girls have already been on before and most are familiar with them.

      I was real proud of Aja....she did quite well this time. She does not need this show though. Her acts are incredible. I'm totally for Ben dela Crème for the win. And adore Trixie.

  8. I actually feel like those queens are really weird and unique, and I mean that in a very good way. There are so many queens this year that I just can not label easily, unlike years before where it was very easy to determine the "look queens". This time, they're all very polished, but that doesn't make all of them "just" look queens, because we're living in an age (thanks to Instagram and all the Beauty Gurus) where being polished isn't something that sets you apart from the others. Ru would have never chosen those queens if they wouldn't have any more talent than simply looking good.

  9. I love them all. This will be a great season. But I have to give it up for Monique Heart and Miz Cracker.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Aquaria, Monet Xchange, Dusty Ray Bottoms and Miz Cracker and Kameron Michaels are my favorites from this.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I couldn't even begin to pick a winner, I don't know enough about them. Some I would never guess were guys if you didn't tell us. I remember a Vietnamese straight friend showing me clips of the contests in Thailand, it's amazing the amount of effort guys put into drag.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm going to say that Blair St. Clair appears to be the most convincing. She looks like Don Draper's wife. "Drape" that weenie under your legs and do your thang, girl!!!

    1. By damned your right....a Mad Men vibe for sure.

  13. MAYHEM IS IN THE HOUSE!!!! This will be tough. I like Kameron, but I have to root for my WeHo queen Mayhem!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Why are they all so similar in the interviews? But from the clip, I love the energy of Miz Cracker, Kameron and Monet X Change. There my top three.

    1. In these meet the queens, they want them on level playing ground, they have no control over this part of the process.

  15. I am SOLD on the Cracker, Asia, and Aquaria.

    But must admit it's going to be entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Close your eyes and aquaria sounds like milk. Cover your ears and dusty ray bottoms looks like sharon needles. Close the computer and blair st. clair is tolerable.

    I'm with Eureka O Hara. It's about time a big bitch won this.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Who told Asia O'Hara to wear that wig? yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Now you know Aquaria can tear a stage up! She is polished and is stunning, but I get a sense of entitlement from her, from when she was here in Philly. She will do go far, but she turns me off. I'm hoping for a top three of Miz, Monet, and Mayhem myself.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love you break down Mistress! I myself am adoring Blair and Miz Cracker. Aquaria is so stunning, but a shame she seems to have a attitude. Not what Ru will be looking for. But I'm only going by this clip.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I followed Kameron before rumors were out that she might be on season 10 so I’m rooting for her

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm still enjoying All Stars!!!!!! How great to have to back to back seasons!!!!!!!

    Aquaria and miz cracker literally have the same face lmao! They both look great.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm excited to see many of these queens on here having worked or met most of them. I think Kameron, Miz, Monet, and Asia will do very well, and I hope Eureka does well too...she is a riot.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I so wish I was able to see this show when it airs!!!!

    All these queens looks sickening.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Im rooting for anyone but Aquaria

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really should watch more often than I do. It's usually fun!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm feeling aquaria.....i always enjoyed a good bitch.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great post! I just love everything about Miz Cracker!!! And I have always thought Kalorie Karbdashian Williams has one of the prettiest faces I have ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  28. From the pics and preview clip, I'm going to root for the Asian one, Yuhua Hamasaki. Because she's different. The others all kind of blend in. But I have to see the first episode to get a sense of who they are. It's hard to figure out personalities and talents by these highly stylized and heavily edited marketing pics and clip.

    Leave it to RuPaul to put on a good show.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think her too. For you reason, she may be the one to watch out for.

Go ahead darling, tell me something fabulous!
