Ms Silky is my #1. I'm also rooting for Nina, Yvie, and A'keria. This seems like the most interesting cast in awhile so I'm pretty excited!
The last few seasons all felt like they were pushing towards the whole drag/fashion/instagram aesthetic so it's cool to see this cast being more focused on classic drag styles with all the pageantry. Nina especially feels like such a classic campy queen that we haven't seen in awhile.
I am firmly #teamnoone I think the promo pics are super poor, and the interviews have all been super unprofessional and sloppy. Hopefully the actual season is good and the amount of shouting gets reduced from S10. I love some cattiness (like Gia Gunn), but don’t need people actually fighting for the drama. I also hope there’s a focus on humour and creativity rather than looking pretty.
I was burned out last year, but I'm not feeling it this year, I'm ready for the new batch. Just finished episode 6 of DR Thailand and was genuinely shocked at the ending. This season I'm enjoying as much as the first, more than AS4 that's for sure.
So after going to the Haters Roast this past weekend, I'm a little more enthused for S11. Miss Vanjie redeemed herself a little bit with her set. I also like Silky and Yvie from the Build video with the cast.
I'm still a little worried that the challenges will be boring like AS4, but we'll see as the season goes on.
Nina West is from Columbus which is where I live and she's amazing and does so many great things for this city and charity and for our thriving gay scene and I hope she wins the whole thing that is all run on sentences are fun.
Pretty exciting and diverse cast, this could be a great season (but then again Season 10 looked like a strong season too and it kinda petered out so who knows).
Plastique Tiara looks absolutely stunning.
This is one of the rare time where I don't have an "obvious first out" queen based on the promo, (which is usually completely arbitrary and based on very little I'll give you that), but that could be because those promo looks are pretty meh overall and there isn't anything jumping out as outright terrible.
Watching that runway video was just so, so bad. It looked like a backyard beauty pageant with the atrocious lighting and claustrophobic set piece boxing the queens together so they had to shuffle down. It honestly was not a good way to inspire me to watch this season but I'll give the first episode or two a go before deciding if I'll just watch it when I have free time instead of live-ish (Australia so delayed).
Cast looks bland and uninspired after the intro. Oddly/Scarlet Envy/Rajah/Brooke Lynn ALL seem like boring filler queens. I can already tell Soju is going to be eliminated within the first 3 episodes; no presence or impacT in that intro despite being a big YouTuber.
