While the last season of RuPaul's Drag Race seemed to last 6 years, it's other counterparts from around the globe, spanned from Down Under, the UK, Holland, Canada, Spain and Italia...six seasons in the amount it took the US version to do one season. But were heading back to the US and the werkroom for another season. And it looks to be another extra-long season with 14 queens again. I don't know yet I'll be watching let alone recapping, as the international versions have spoiled me with how quick they roll, and I'll be breaking for the winter for a bit. By this point, is there really something new we haven't seen yet? If I have to see queens rely on death drops yet again, Ill scream. These girls need to watch and learn from their international sisters, who perform and do other moves with their bodies and not rely on so much for the expected death drop. The latest batch of queens are in my opinion much less well known as opposed to seasons past, the way I think it' ought to be...but this season is either going to be very good, or a complete train wreck. I know of some and am very familiar with at least five queens. The queens were Ru-Vealed in a Candyland-esque promo during the holidays. I have here a bit for them, and where I will estimate their chance.
Alyssa Hunter is one of the most celebrated pageant queens in Puerto Rico and she knows her way around a runway and delivers stunning looks. But I sense an early out of the season for her.
Angeria Paris Van Micheals,
Atlanta. Top 5
A southern belle from Atlanta, and I'm here to tell ya she lights up a room with her charisma, nerve and talent. An old school pageant queen and this bitch can serve fierce fashion and face with a side of country charm, but I don't know about the uniqueness part. She will I'm certain make top 5, but I doubt she'll get the win.
Seattle, Top 5
Very laid back and a very talented queen but don't let her laid back grunge vibe fool you; this fiercely competitive queen is all about femme fatale glamour, razor sharp wit and an impressive arsenal of drag tricks.
