RuPauls DragRace 5....Bring her The Girls!

What better way to start the week than with a bunch on queens? RuPauls fifth season of Drag Race is around the corner, and I for one can't wait for a regular season, after the All-Stars, which I gave up on, due to the team challenge, which I feel impeded some of the talent on the show, like Nina and Lattrice, but I'm not bitter. No, the fifth season is full of yet some real talents and personalities which have been featured right here, so you may recognize a few.

Alaska Thunderfuck, Pittsburgh

Sharon Needles’ concubine, Alaska will be the first queen whose full name can’t be said on television. I have seen her perform and met her once, and she is about as fierce as Sharon was, but with her own look and style. She will be a top contender.

Alyssa Edwards, Mesquite, TX.
In 2010 this beauty, Alyssa was forced her to give up her Miss Gay America pageant title, quite the scandal in the drag world. You think that’s gonna come up during Untucked? Hint? My sources say Yes!

Coco Montrese, Las Vegas

So Coco was the runner-up at the Miss Gay America contest, and snatched the crown when Aylssa Edwards was axed. Expect some sparks between these two Southern belles. Coco is a pretty talented queen and appears regularly at Vegas' Drink and Drag Diner.

Detox Icunt, Los Angeles
Another queen whose name will have to be bleeped out! You might remember Detox from “Chow Down,” the parody video Willam Belli made about Chick-fil-A, but she’s also appeared in a Rihanna video and recorded music with Ke$ha. So she’ll be a shoo-in at Lipsynch for Your Life. (May she never have to prove it.) And she is very hilarious, and is another of my top contenders.

Honey Mahogany, San Francisco
According to her profile, San Francisco’s first Drag Queen contestant hails from Ethiopia and took her stage name from two different shades of foundation. All I know is, with a name like Honey Mahogany, if she doesn’t do Pam Grier for The Snatch Game, it is ovah!

Ivy Winters, New York City
She’s made outfits for Manila Luzon and Lady Bunny, so you know this is one bitch who knows how to sew. She’s also a professional fire-eater, which  could add to her shade-throwing, an interesting twist. Another performer I have seen, with some unusual talents.

Jade Jolie, Gainesville, FL
Generally I'd say nothing good comes out of Florida, but Jade is one of the prettier queens we’ve seen on the show I must say. Getting a Dida Ritz vibe—but, y’know, white. I'm not sure how far yet she'll go.

Jinkx Monsoon, Seattle
I'm getting a Tammie Brown vibe from this self-described Jewish narcoleptic queen from Seattle. Which means we’ll totally worship her and she’ll get sent home too quickly.

Lineysha Sparx San Juan, PR
Like the Mistress, this Puerto Rican never wears the same outfit twice. Do we dare hope for some Team Yarlexis magic? I love her wig talents, may I add. Another of my contenders.

Monica Beverly Hillz, Owensboro, KY
Her classy name aside, Monica actually hails from small town Kentucky. Is she going to be able to hold her own against them big-city queens?

Penny Tration, Cincinnati
  A funny drag handle can sometimes wear thin, but it didn’t hurt Sharon Needles. We also like that Penny’s not a twig—real girls have curves!

Roxxxy Andrews, Orlando
In my email from Logo, they say in this queens profile, it calls Roxxxy “a pageant girl through and through.” Will that help or hinder her in the challenges, which are usually more out-there than donning a swimsuit and high heels. And might I add is very cute as a boy!

Serena ChaCha, Tallahassee, FL
Serena is this season’s baby, right out of art school. I hope that doesn’t mean she’ll be wearing a diaper and throwing tantrums. Actually…

Vivienne Pinay, New York City
Girlfriend hails from New York but we first saw her in a Vogue Italia piece showing queens in half-drag. Does she have what it takes? RuPaul always said Filipinas make the fiercest queens.
Who will you put your chips on —and who will sashay away?


  1. We felt the same way about All Stars - not a good twist. Felt rushed and unfair. So we are looking forward to the next regular season. We'll root for the hometown (actually homestate) girl from Seattle. In the end we always like the ones with a heart.

  2. I don't like the Team Biz on All-Stars either, but i keep watching because I want Chad to win!

    This next DR looks faboosh. I may already be team Thunderfuck! In name only, even!

  3. Anonymous11/26/2012

    I missed last season and All Stars because I didn't have the time to watch, but with no hockey on TV I'm likely going to watch it this time around.

  4. being a Fl gal I may have to pull for one of them but more precisely the beauty from Gainesville FL I've lived here for mores years then a can count and didn't know we had any Drag queens where has this beauty been hiding and where can a see her perform.

    1. I know Jade does many Pride festivals and clubs dates. Her Facebook page may contains the where and whens.

    2. i will definitely check out her fb page thanks oh and thanks for introducing me to this gorgeous lady I love it

  5. can't say i adored the all-star team crap, but i'll take whatever
    ru can manage to give. strange that it's all over tonight, oh so quick.

    january, downton abbey & drag race. could it get any better?

    1. I couldn't agree with you sister, on the three best things coming up!

    2. @Norma: A new series of HBO's "Girls" in January too!

    3. yes, i forgot i saw that promo, it CAN get better!

  6. Go Penny, you have Souther California supporting you all the way

  7. Gosh..I thought for sure Wendy Williams and NeNe Leakes would be contestants?! guess not, huh? Good luck girls!

  8. With exception of Sharon and Chad, this bunch looks much better than season 4. Penny Tration? lol omg!!!

  9. I have to give a huge shout out for JINKX!!! Seattle is beaming with pride today, gurl! I was so impressed when I saw Jinkx MC. She's a more glamorous Pandora Boxx who actually sings live! Shine bright, Jinkxalicious

  10. Can't wait...I absolutely LOVE this show!!! I don't get Logo anymore and Logo video player sucks with it's buffering, so I hope I have the patience to watch it on there. This is gonna be a good season.

  11. I'm so happy for Alaska. Sure, she got accepted on the literal heels of her partner, season four champion, Sharon Needles, but after four seasons of rejection, she deserves a chance! Now she has to put her money where her mouth is and let the world have it! Get it, Mama!!!

    1. I'm so glad to hear this. I believe that Alaska would not have been chosen if she didn't deserve to be there. I'm so excited for the new season!

  12. From what I’ve seen… the queens I’m liking so far:

    *Alaska Thunderfuck
    *Penny Tration (I used to watch her Drag Race reviews, love the paint!)
    *Serena ChaCha (the name…)
    *Roxxxy Andrews
    *Alyssa Edwards

    But it’s usually by Snatch Game time I’ve firmly made my decision of “favourite queen” (though for Season 3 Manila was my favourite from the moment she walked in!)

  13. There’s a LOT of fish this season which was almost completely missing from last season. I’m curious to see what Alaska and Detox bring to runway presentations. Alyssa, Honey, Serena and Ivy look gorgeous but let’s hope they have personality and are capable of any interesting style.

  14. Monica Bevery Hillz looks like the second coming of Kenya Michaels. Thus, I don’t see her making it very far

  15. These Queens are gorgeous. I cannot wait for Season 5.
    I have to say though I am favoring Roxxy Andrews and Alaska as she is gorgeous in and out of drag. Good luck girls!! Wish you would recap this show ;0

  16. two words squirrel friends: VIVIENNE PINAY

  17. If and when they have the live singing challenge this season Honey is gonna MOP DA FLOOR with these queens…..bitches better get ready!

  18. I’m feeling


    As you can see, I like my queens. Really interested to see what they’re going to do with Alyssa and Coco. I wonder if it’ll end up being a Sharon/Phi Phi-esque kind of relationship. You have got me hooked on the show now!

  19. Detox looks incredibly witty and entertaining. Sometimes, the focus is heavy on fashion, low on innovative performance, and it’d be a shame if she didn’t get the credit she deserves. She’s definitely gonna eat some of these sweeter bitches up. I’m also getting a nice feeling from Jinkx Monsoon. She’s talented so long as she can rein in some of the show tunes instincts but keep that bubbly Frank-Zappa-in-a-wig vibe. Serena ChaCha looks interesting as well! Haven’t heard enough of Alaska to judge, but she certainly looks very sharp/funny.

  20. Love the show, its like a drag shoq every Monday night,but no guesses yet, they all look fierce.

  21. Is it me or does Jade Jolie look a little like Gretchen from the ‘Real Housewives of Orange County?’ I can’t wait for the new season of Rupaul’s Drag Race; I was a little disappointed in the ‘All-stars’ season but hopefully next year they will make some improvements. I’m excited for the new premiere, but unfortunately I’m going to miss the first episode when it airs because of my new schedule at DISH. I’m bad with setting weekly timers on my DISH Hopper, so instead I’m going to record the entire season. I have over 400 hours of HD DVR room and with that I won’t miss a single episode and I can still record my other favorite HD programs the same night without using up much space. I can’t wait to see the fierceness of all the new queens this season.


Go ahead darling, tell me something fabulous!
