HEY EVERYBODY..... it's the Mistress obviously!!! Is everyone as excited as Norma and I about the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race starting? If you missed my preview from December, I've re-tool the post for one last look and to include my predictions. It will be interesting to see how my views and opinions may change as the season goes on. I am using my knowledge of drag, queens that I have seen in person, and from you tube videos for the ones I didn't know. And A HUGE THANK YOU for all your comments on the previous post!!!! So lets switch gears from dick to drag!!!!!
Adore was on American Idol, and didn't win. But love that she gave Simon so much lip. I LOVE IT! She seems funny, pretty and seems to have a wide range of looks. I don't think people will like her at first, she will be the Willam of the season, we will grow to like her. She is young and fresh, and is pretty new to drag. Puts a new spin on things. I think she will place top 5.
She is our Puerto Rico queen this season, and for once we get one WITHOUT a language barrier!!! This girl looks damn fierce, has good fashion sense and seems very lively. I think she will do well if she steps out of her zone, and can hold her own with some of the stiff competition this season.
Ben de la Crème
She is very good friends with last years winner Jinkx Monsoon. She is full of life, humor, and seems like a lot of fun, has some retro fashion sense, and bares a uncanny resemblance to Michelle Visage. There is a spice about her, and I think she will go far in Drag Race, but I don't know how she will do in the runway challenges, as her style is close to Jinkx.
Bianca del Rio
I FRICKIN LOVE THIS BITCH! She is funny, the biggest bitch ever in a good, fun way, and has lashes for days!!!! Very old school drag, which is nice, but will Ru be looking for this, or something new? She also has killer looks, wigs and great make up technique. And when it comes to the Reading Challenge, she should slay the other bitches! She has already worked with Lady Bunny, Sherry Vine and Kelly Mantle, and has a hilarious show in New York currently with Lady Bunny called Hot Mess.
This is our queen from down under, and is already a HUGE HIT in Australia, on their version of American Idol. She is downright stunning, can sing for real so her lip synch's should be flawless. She is fishy as hell, and is the fourth honorary member of DWV, with Willam, Detox and Vicki Vox. Cute out of drag as well. She is already a front runner of the season and should place top three.
Darrien is Pandora Boxx's Drag Mother and has worked with the very funny Kasha Davis. She is pretty well know here on the East coast and has a flawless look and fabulous wigs and is the season's big gal. She makes too many fat jokes, we get it, your fat. She need to step away from that and bring another humor. This will not be the year of the big girl.
Might be the real bitch of the season. She is painted well, very professional, and can dance like hell, throwing a wig around in a head twirl and keep it on!!! She is pretty good, but I don't think she is fierce enough against some other queens.
Seems pretty, and sweet, but when she opens her mouth she seems very bland. She annoys me already from a two minute video and does nothing for me. She seems like Tatianna from season two, and if she goes as far as she did, then this is just bullshit. Just seems very dull and I do believe she will just blend in the wood grain with so many fierce queens this season. That said.... she is one hot boy!!!! He could call me if he wants.....
I think she just needs more time to perfect her style.
Another very professional queen and already very accomplished. Kelly will be the Chad Michaels of this season as the senior queen. Kelly has many, many looks, great style, and will kill in the acting challenges. She can also take criticism and a good joke. I think she will do very well.
This is Alyssa' Edward's drag daughter, and is another front runner. Everything seems about her! She is one of the most fierce dancers I have seen, but I don't like her personality, and I don't know if her performing will take her to the end, or how her runway will do, and she needs to take the manic energy down a notch. Plus she is very new to the drag world.
My least favorite queen. She is a little bit funny, but way other funnier queen this season, and what's with the odd nose contour???? Not a fan, and will be one of the first two gone. Just too bland.
If you don't know who Milk is you need to go You Tube that shit! She is part of the very funny campy Diary Queens troupe. She is FABULOUS and I'm sure will be the underdog of the season, and already a fan favorite. She is so cool, has humor, very camp, very glamour and has a comedic side, everything I look for in a drag queen. She will not do the fishy thing. I don't know if Ru will buy what's she selling. It breaks my heart, but I don't think she will win, but will do well. Another good looking guy out of drag!
Trinity K Bonnet
A FILLER QUEEN! if you ask me. She does nothing for me, a bore, dull and reminds me of Tyra Sanchez when she talks, which makes one sound like she doesn't want to be there. Major snooze. Plus anyone with the K for Kardashian is nuts!!!
A lot of people online are already in love with her. She is not new to the drag seen, and will bring a Paris is Burning feel to the show, as that was her thing!!! She seems like a big personality, with a gender bender style and seems cool. And don't expect a high glamour from her, as she borders a more Leigh Bowery feel. I think she could be the wild card this season and her lip syncs are un-believable!
SOOOOOO. Here is what I think will go down.... from first gone to the winner...
14- Magnolia Crawford, 13- Vivacious, 12-Joslyn Fox 11-Gia Gunn 10-April Carrion 9-Laganja Estranja 8-Darienne Lake 7-Trinity K Bonnet 6- Adore Delano 5-Kelly Mantle 4-Milk 3-Courtney Act 2-BenDeLa Crème Winner-Bianca Del Rio
