Is it me or does it seem like Drag Race All Stars 3 is now a distant memory? The All Star shows are entertaining, but I'm always thirsty for the new talent. The Season 10 premiere didn't disappoint, starting with my favorite part of the show.....the best moment.... RuPaul's introduction of superstar guest judge Christina Aguilera as "a queen we all know and love."
She was excellent on there too. I have always been a huge fan of her and her voice. So I ate that right up.
Now this post will be more of my observations, than a recap....I don't know I'll have the time to do a weekly recap, but I'd love to hear what y'all think too. Overall, I think this is going to be a entertaining season with so many popular queens out there currently.
Eureka seemed well on her way to the finale last season but worries she'll now be cut if she doesn't step up every single week. Her fears seem legitimate, given the queens who sashay into the workroom this season, but I think she will do pretty well. I already love the energy she adds to the workroom, and she's much more polished already since her season. Her dime store ensemble was adorable.
Lets face it...there is going to be a throw down between the box of Miz Cracker and the Age of Aquaria. Both highly stylized queens. I have seen them both, but never sensed any rivalry, but I do believe it's been a touchy subject on their style being so close together. Both cast for good tv viewing perhaps? Both will go far in the season, but Miz is just a twisted funny bitch. One's sides alway hurt when she's around. I adore Aquaria, but the few times I met her, didn't pick up on much of a warm personality...sorry girl. But she is fierce! Miz Cracker's look in the drag on a dime was chic and edgy, sold completely by her emotive runway performance. I'm loving Cracker more and more. But...there was the similar make up style as Aquaria's.....Ohhhhhh gurl.......
So nice to see Mayhem Miller up in the house at long last!!! I have been touting for her to get on in some time.Mayhem Miller comes with a serious drag pedigree, and I thought she did very well last night. I mean any queen who can turn out a cartwheel in a floor-length gown, is just sickening. Mayhem has a heart of gold and a wonderful personality. I have always said she has a great drag name.
In my original recap, I didn't know much about Monique. I feel she will do pretty well though, not a win, but should do well. She was a scream I thought. Her jokes and one liners had me cracking up. She should keep the girls sides splitting. I think I'm going to enjoy watching her.
If people are looking for Kameron Michaels to be loud and very interactive, it won't happen. Kameron is a sweet heart I've gotten to know on Instagram...but he is one that will keep to himself and is on the quite side. I don't see the win, but I think he will fly in under the radar far enough before being taken out. There is no denying he is hot as a boy and downright flawless in drag for being so built. Kameron has some very stunning numbers I have seen him in, and if he whips these out.... look out. He did come across just a bit laid back though, but this "muscle queen" Kameron stands out because the other queens are so thirsty once he's out of drag.
In person and on paper Blair St. Clair is the it drag queen. A Broadway queen. I want to like her so bad, but I still think she will only get midway. I can't put my finger on it, but there is something that bugs me about her. If I figure it out I'll get back to you.
Kalorie Karbdashian Williams is a twerking plus-size queen. I actually liked her infectious laugh and personality....and her face is flawlessly painted...but I still say she'll be top 3 gone girl. Kalorie is covered in fake money for the drag on a dime challenge -- but doesn't take it to the bank. But I thought she lip synch was tight.
The plucky Vanessa Vanjie Mateo. I said she would probably be in the first two gone. That being said, I did enjoy her personality more than I thought I would, and found her to actually be funny.I was fully prepared for Vanessa to slay this, given her drag family. But Kalorie quickly pulls out ahead, twerking and werking it out. Vanessa looks uncomfortable and nervous, which results in a half-baked performance. No bam! Just blah.
Get ready, hennies. This season seems like it could be a lot of fun. To see my original post with predictions you can read that here. What do you guys think? And remember...
