Tonight we answer the question we’ve been building up to all season – who won RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8? Now normally I would give you a full recap before posting, but since we had no advanced screener, I’m writing on the fly. Not my best look, like day drag. So tonight you’ll get the info you want. Be sure to come back to this post sometime tomorrow for the fully fleshed out recap with more pictures. We get the original song lip synchs and final interviews with each of our finalists. Bob gets a personal message from the one … Continue reading
It’s that time again when two worlds collide: the world of Skin Wars meets RuPaul’s Drag Race. While we’re having a brief pause in RuPaul’s Drag Race action, Skin Wars season 3 episode 4 has stepped up to fill the drag queen void. This time, it’s a pageant and the contestants are some of the queens from past seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Here’s the official description from Skin Wars: “Miss Skin Wars” The remaining artists are joined by nine fabulous drag queens, all vying to be crowned the first-ever Miss Skin Wars through competing in body-painted swimwear and a … Continue reading
The only real purpose for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 episode 9 to exist is to answer one question. Who made it to the top 3? There’s no real suspense as to what’s going to happen in the episode. Michelle Visage will tell the girls about the music video challenge. Ok, so that one was different. This year Ru let the girls know. The girls will have to showcase different looks for different parts of the video. There will be at least one awkward element. The girls will talk about how much they’ve learned over the season. The girls will … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 episode 8 is the ball episode! It’s 90 minutes! The guest judges are David & Amy Sedaris! Aaahhh! It’s also time for the Everybody Loves Puppets mini-challenge! Yay! But first – purse first! After, of course, a brief shady recap of Thorgy’s exit in the last episode. It’s time to dive into the glory hole (Ru doesn’t say it this year, for some reason) and pick out a puppet. Kim Chi gets Chi Chi Chi Chi gets Bob Derrick Barry gets Naomi Smalls Naomi gets Derrick Barry Bob gets Kim Chi Naomi and Derrick are … Continue reading
Skin Wars season 3 starts tonight, Wednesday April 20 at 10pm Eastern time on GSN. All of the judges from season 1 & 2 are returning: RuPaul Charles, Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina. And of course, host Rebecca Romijn also returns to season 3. Let’s learn a little bit about this season’s artists: In this premiere episode, it looks like the artists will have to paint a costume onto a showgirl-type performer. Each one is wearing a different headdress & that needs to inform the artist’s choices in their paint job. Let’s watch a clip courtesy of GSN: Are you … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 episode 7 begins by letting us know a teeny-tiny bit of T. Apparently Derrick talked for a LOOONNNNNGGG time during the last mainstage judging. Thorgy thinks Chi Chi wasted everyone’s time yesterday. How she did that, I have no idea. She may have wasted her own time, but that’s on her. Let it go, Thorgy. The mini-challenge has the queens placing the expanded pit crew into the top or bottom of a giant bunk bed. I would hope that if you’re watching Drag Race & reading this blog, I don’t have to explain it to … Continue reading
In this 2-part finale, we find out who won Face Off season 10. But first our artists have to create 2 horror makeups for a short film. Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions is happy to be there and will be helping judge the final makeups. There’s a lot of thanking and happiness. Thank you, thank you, happy, happy. Over polite Face Off is my least favorite Face Off. These artists will be working with up & coming directors on a different take on the same story by Christopher Denholm, Hell Hole. Their movies will be set in this random oil field … Continue reading
Face Off season 10 is coming to a close with tonight’s episode. Will Melissa, Walter or Rob take the title? As we saw last week, Rob’s screen test ended with him having to re-sculpt everything. Yes, everything. He’s freaking out & I really can’t blame him. Melissa has a medium amount of work – re-doing a chest piece & her victim makeup. Walter appears to be sitting pretty with some minor edits & additions. I think I’m putting my bets on Rob – he’s been consistently strong over the entire season. If he can rally & get a crap ton … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 Episode 6 starts with a bit of Acid Betty shade. It seems very forced because if you watched Untucked you know that Acid Betty wasn’t that bitter. And you guys! Naomi Smalls puts a lot of effort into her looks! Does she have to wear a turtleneck now? Ru’s in the workroom, and he introduces Marc Snetiker, an Entertainment Weekly writer. He says the EW audience loves Drag Race recaps. Huh? Wonder who else does that? And I don’t see many recaps from this season on the EW.com web site. Sure isn’t linked off the … Continue reading
It’s time for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 Snatch Game! But before we get into the characters & what everyone’s going to do, we need to have a Derrick vs Bob snipefest. Snippy, snippy, snarky, snarky, they don’t like each other. We won’t address this again for the rest of the episode. If anyone was hoping for an Untucked tie-in, all we get is Chi Chi looking at the jumpsuit Naysha left her at the end of the last episode. That’s it. No mention of Naysha at all. I mean, I know Naysha already got her swan song off the … Continue reading
