Well the first episode felt like going to a friend's birthday party where you just know your friend (Vanjie) and none of the other guest. I felt happy everytime I saw Miss Vanjie and started to miss her when she was out of sight.
I liked her outfit and hope she makes it to top4.
The other queens need to grow on me.
Scarlet out of drag reminded me of Tammy Brown. Scarlet in drag reminded me of Pearl 😅 Kinda liked her.
Brooklyn nailed the Detox look. A deserved win.
Silky is annoying af. Her interaction with Miley was so embarrassing. No class at all. I hope she goes home soon.
Nina needs 5Gs. ASAP. She can do better.
Next week's main challenge looks fun.
After All Stars this really felt freshening.
She treated this entire thing as a joke and was already cutting corners in the first challenge.
Girl, you’re on the biggest platform for drag in the world and you’re fawning over boys, wearing FLATS(?????), and resorting to Korean silhouettes so you can skip the basics and then an 11th hour sob story hoping that would grant you sympathy?
Yeah reading your response and others here I can see why people weren’t here for it... but I felt for her, like the cyst shit is gross but I feel like she was just an awk queen in over her head. I’d have liked to see how she did the next week but that lip sync just didn’t cut it. Glad Nina West lived to fight another day as well, Columbus is only an hour away from me and it’s the closest I’ll get to a hometown queen since Cincinnati’s Penny Tration (an hour in the other direction, and where I went to law school). I can’t be having all my Ohio queens first out!!!
That pairing makes Photo Review genuinely boring to watch. They toot everything, and then have the strangest random rare boots.
Saw the first episode of season 11 last night, and I liked it. Not in love with any queen, but also don’t dislike anyone in particular. Already feels better than season 10 I think, which just didn’t work for me for some reason.
Kahanna - entrance outfit, garbage. Runway, trash. Filler queen, she was lucky Soju was so fucking bad at that lipsync.
Mercedes - Boring AF. Bodysuits are a bigger crime on the show than flipping wigs during a lipsync imo, should be instant bottom 2.
Soju - Mess. (but felt for her, wish she had turned the lipsync out as I think she could've stayed)
Nina - Mess. (but I think she will redeem herself, I like her despite her Mimi Imfurst episode one confidence issues)
Silky - Mess. (I like her, but I want just a taste, not force-fed a fucking mouthful)
Honestly I hope they cool it on returning queens for a season. We've had one the last 3 seasons now and Soju was all around completely forgettable. Not exactly the type they will be scrambling to put back on the show again.
Nina's outfit was definitely bottom two worthy but at least she put on some effort. Khana just wore her entrance tights with a bra and shorts from her wardrobe and a piece of fabric on her shoulder; Soju just wrapped some tulle and fabric around her and tied it in knots..
Even if she ends up Top 4 / Top 2, they film multiple crowning so they could simply switch the ending for another queen. This is pretty much what happens for AS4, the double-crowning wasn't planned during filming.
I genuinely felt for Miley's safety when Silky just picked her up and was being paraded like that like she was a toddler.
I liked Silky in the first ten minutes but she really, really wore out her welcome after thirty minutes. The queens not responding to her when she was doing her schtick says it all really. I can't imagine being around her 12 hours a day. Shit must be exhausting.
I've watched the whole viewing party on YT and Trex (the host) was so uncomfortable the whole time.
Miss Sliky was loud and obnoxious the whole time, yelling about selling her merch and wanting "trade" after the show. Tbh, after all the shit we've seen from her the allegations don't surprise me.
Silky's attitude problems are not going to do her any favors even if nothing comes of this sexual assault talk. The producers are probably praying that doesn't get traction, lest they be in the position to have to decide whether to even invite her back for the reunion (doubly awkward if she was in the final set of contestants). In any case, she's a hot mess and totally annoying so I really don't give a crap about her.
Is what Ariel said about Soju correct? I got the impression (as I don't know who she is) that Soju only did drag on her Youtube show and has never actually done traditional drag performance of any kind (never done the clubs or anything). Still, trying to shortcut it just so you don't have to pad the first week is a pretty bad look overall.
At least Shuga Cain, even though only doing drag for a year, seems like she's actually doing the work for an actual "drag" career, unlike Soju I guess. Shuga is also my pick for "hot boy" this season, he's so attractive (and also more my age, so that works too, lol).
Not sure what Nina was doing. I like the older queens, I mean way before drag race I followed my local queens and loved Varla Jean Merman and CoCo Peru, but of those two, Varla has updated her makeup, and CoCo has a brand and is definitely not looking to be a drag race girl. You'd think if you were going to be an older style queen and come on the show you'd at least get some pointers on painting your face for TV instead of stage, because that runway face was abhorrent.
Glad to see Vanjie do well, and I love her attitude.
Finally watched episode one, some random thoughts;
- Canadian pride in the house! Brooke was great
- Silky is the worst, and the links in this thread don't help matters
- Slightly disappointed by Soju's performance. Result was deserved, but I liked her talking heads so I was hoping to see more
- Plastique instantly shot straight to the top of hottest queens in boy mode. Good lord
- Miley continues to seem like such a cool woman
Welp... this was quite a way for me to find out Mercedes is Muslim. Between this and those allegations I’m officially rescinding any positive shit my Muslim ass had to say for Miss Silky. 👋🏽 You can go.
Maybe I'm a sucker for editing, but in one episode I went from seeing Silky, liking her to being done with her.
Even before seeing the assuslt allegation stories, I thought the whole picking up Miley thing was really poor judgement. How do you not display basic, common boundaries when you meet someone? What if she tripped and fell? How do you go on season 11 of DragRace and seem unaware of "Drag is not a contact sport"?
