WELL, WELL WELL, here we are already the final five!!!! When I did my initial post, the five queens in the top five are close to what I picked, and it was interesting to see the order I picked from beginning to end, compared to how it panned out. The biggest shock was seeing Kelly Mantle go first. But the rest followed suit pretty close to my predictions, with the exception of Milk and Adore. I thought for sure it would be Milk in the top 5 along with Adore being 6th. Josyln made it much further then I ever expected, and I'm glad for her. Heaven knows she can't act or lip sync her way out of a paper bag, and her high NRG dancing needs work, but she is so frickin adorable, and paints up real nice. I'd meet her for a drink any time, she seemed like a lot of fun. She gets my surprise hit of the season award. My initial order was...
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
But here is how I think the season will pan out from here......
I know I will regret this, but I have the feeling she will beat out Adore for top four. But lately she has been on the bottom. It amazes me this bitch is still here. It is driving me nuts. I have no idea what is going on with RuPaul and the judges. I had high hopes for Darienne to place mid way. But she’s got a really bitter, nasty streak when someone outdoes her that’s really unpleasant. She is the nasty queen back stage you hear of. And do they not see she only as one look it seems, and how she got past the Talk Show Host episode is beyond me. That was a major disaster to watch, and she is no Lattrice Royale to make it this far. If a big girl should win, it should have been her. Lattrice had way more style, class, and a funny side than this Great Lake!!!
I had a feeling Adore would place high, but not top 5. While she does have a great look some weeks, I don't think she is winning the season. But she better beat that big bitch this week and send her packing!!!!! I find Adore oddly endearing, even though she’s a hot mess. She’s kind of like a Labrador retriever puppy — if you can stand to get through this early phase of her drag life with her chewing up all your high steppers and pissing on the rug, you might just end up with something really lovely. I think Ru also sees a ton of potential in her and that’s why she’s been so forgiving of Adore’s missteps. But who really thinks Adore can win? Even Adore doesn’t think Adore can win.
Going into this there was no question this already well known queen would be top 5. Courtney has been consistent, but underwhelming in my opinion, so she won't win. I was expecting great things when I found out that she was part of this cast, but I’ve yet to be wowed, except for the pearl clutching moment of the bird wings!!!!. Don't get me wrong, she is fabulous and stunning as hell, she’s giving me Olivia Newton John realness with the Aussie bit, and has legs more fishier than Long John Silvers on Good Friday. Courtney has really grown on me, both as a performer and because she seems like a genuinely nice person. When Great Lakes, Darienne was saying she should go on The Biggest Loser so she could find a nice man, and Courtney said, “You can find yourself a nice man looking just like that…” she won me over completely. I do feel she was cast just to get viewers in, with her being already well known. I don’t give a shit if she can’t make costumes or do impressions of celebrities. I would fuck Courtney Act. In drag, out of drag, either way.
Just this Friday night I had the privilege of seeing this fabulous queen right here at Voyeur Nightclub in Philly where she brought the house down and is every bit the sweetheart you would expect her to be. I think BenDeLaCreme is lovely. Always pulls it off with great style. At first I thought she was just Michelle Visage’s twin brother, but she has now done other looks successfully. I don’t see anything stopping her for second place. DeLa’s experience with theater and music should put her in a fantastic position, and she for the most part has been consistent, but I think her closeness in style and talent and quirkiness, being so close to her friend Jinkx won't give her the win. It would be like Jinkx winning again.
So that leaves Miss Bianca Del Rio to take the win.......
Bianca really is the whole complete package of a drag queen with just enough campy bitchiness. She has great style, is always flawless and is down right funny. And she has fabulous lashes for days!!!! Loved the Judge Judy, her and Ben stole the whole Snatch Game.I really like Bianca for her commentary.
At first Bianca’s jokes were like bad Don Rickles rejects. But she relaxed and got into the groove. Her one liners are slick as goose shit going threw a brass horn. She is so polished and confident, I felt like she already won the whole thing from the beginning. Bianca is far and away my favorite and has been. She is also already a legend in New York and New Orleans, and historically the queen who wins the most challenges has won the whole season. If someone is looking for the whole package- Bianca is the ticket.
So what's your thoughts kittens?
