Early Arrival: Watch the First 14 Minutes of 'RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10' Here!

We are still reeling from the All Stars 3 finale this past Thursday, and now we don't have time to catch our breath at all as season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race premieres in only three days.

This is the first time (in my recollection) where this show has gone back to back in its almost ten years of being on the air, but given how big this program has become over the years, it doesn't come as much of a shock that VH1 and World of Wonder is giving its millions of fans what they want in terms of months and months of our favorite drag queens on television.

Now, we have several new girls to call our favorites in due time, as VH1 has released the first fourteen minutes of the season 10 premiere a couple of days in advance. 

For those not in the know, the season 10 girls are all brand new to the show except for one which is Eureka from season 9.  She tragically had to leave the competition due to an injury she sustained during the cheerleading challenge in episode 2.  

The other competitors reads as follows: Yuhua Hamasaki (New York, NY), Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (Tampa, FL), The Vixen (Chicago, IL), Monique Heart (Kansas City, MO), Monét X Change (Bronx, NY), Miz Cracker (New York, NY), Mayhem Miller (Riverside, CA), Kameron Michaels (Nashville, TN), Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams (Albuquerque, NM), Dusty Ray Bottoms (New York, NY), Blair St. Clair (Indianapolis, IN), Aquaria (Brooklyn, NY) and Asia O'Hara (Dallas, TX) . 

Eureka is the first to enter the work room, with her entrance line being "Like a phoenix from the ashes, Eureka is back."  It's a smart move by the producers as to eliminate a surprise element that the other queens already know is coming.  Then Asia comes in after her, who Eureka says is stiff competition due to her illustrious history in the pageant circuit along with the other O'Hara's. 

We would rather let you be the judge for yourself and check out the entire fourteen minutes, which you can find here.  

Are there any clear favorites as of now, even with only the first 14 minutes of episode one revealed? Let us know your thoughts!


Halleloo! Season 10 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Will Stream on Netflix Each Friday

Looks like the biggest reality television show in the world has made its way to streaming, hunties.

RuPaul's Drag Race, which just wrapped up its third season of All Stars on Thursday, has officially announced that its 10th season will be streaming each and every Friday starting a week from today.

Keep in mind, this is for our friend's across the pond, as it will air first here in the states each Thursday (beginning with the premiere on March 22nd ) and then hop onto the popular streaming service the day after.

Even better news, our friends in England can also stream seasons 2 through 9 (as season one continues to truly be "the lost season").  This doesn't include any of the All Stars seasons however, womp womp.

This must come as major relief for the millions of fans across the way, as you can now avoid dodgy websites and poorly uploaded links and actually watch the real thing in true HD shade.  Yas!

Will Netflix ever make this stream in the states? Would this be something you would like to happen here?  Let us know your thoughts.


Hey Kitty Girls! Here's Where You Can Watch RuPaul Get His Hollywood Star!

After the finale that left everyone gagging last night on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 or the controversy that has been surrounding RuPaul’s comments about trans contestant on Drag Race—do we still have mental capacity for Mama Ru today? Well, of course!

RuPaul is the latest celebrity to be lauded with one of the greatest honors in Hollywood—a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony, which will take place on March 16, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. will be another milestone for the drag superstar.



Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies says this about RuPaul:

RuPaul is a Ruvolutionary performer who brought the art of Drag into the American public eye and made it mainstream. We are proud to add this groundbreaking entertainer on our historic Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In addition to this great news, which we’ve known for some time, RuPaul will make an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the phenomenon that is RuPaul’s Drag Race, the honor of his star on the Walk of Fame and more!

During his interview Ru shares that he feels like he’s being knighted—and by none other than one of his idols Jane Fonda.





RuPaul also shares that he would love to have another of his idols, Judge Judy, as a Judge on Drag Race—in addition to Ellen, of course!



During the episode, Ru and Ellen teamed up for a game called Lip Sync for Your Wife that is a sickening combo of Ru’s infamous lip sync battles and Ellen’s “You Bet Your Wife”.



Catch the full episode of Ellen on March 16th on NBC.

RuPaul’s star will be located 6652 Hollywood Boulevard, right outside the World of Wonder production office—which produces Drag Race.

One Week Left: Who Do YOU Think Will Win 'All Stars 3'?

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3 had their penultimate episode last night, where... SPOILER ALERT... Morgan McMichael's got sent home for the second time.  My reaction that?  Girl, bye. You weren't good at this game in season 2, you definitely weren't good in the first episode of AS3 and last night proved for a third time that this isn't the show for you.

With last week's shocking elimination that sent BenDeLaCreme home, whoops I meant she sent herself home by quitting, and now that Morgan is gone, we have four remaining queens who pretty much pale in comparison to the final four in season 2 of All Stars.  Minus 1.5. 

This season had a couple of opportunities to be as incredible and dramatic as season 2 was, but it didn't.  I think the reason why is because on AS2, most of those girls were close friends so there was a different dynamic there that made it that much more personal and at the same time riveting to watch.  These 10 girls didn't really have any prior relationships with one another, which made the eliminations that much more interesting in terms of the strategy, but overall it just never really got off the ground.

Now, we have a somewhat tepid final four with one particular queen who clearly outshines the rest.  This... is Shangela.  In seven weeks, Shangela only found herself in the bottom twice, where she only deserved to really be in there once and that was the soup can/70's challenge.  She can't really sew, she's owned up to it, but she has clearly made up for it in so many other ways that prove her 3rd time really has been a charm. 

She is second to BenDeLaCreme in terms of wins, however, she won every lip sync battle that she was in.  She brought the funny when needed, but also knew how to play a very strategic game that was on a softer level compared to how hard she went in season 3.  Everything she did, from playing Mariah Carey in Divas! Live to showcasing her comedy chops in The Bitchelor challenge just showed all of us how much she's grown in her drag career, which is eons better compared to when she walked into the werk room almost ten years ago on season 2.  If anyone deserves the crown this season, it's her.

As for the other three, Kennedy Davenport had a moment or two where she did fabulous (The Bitchelor was amazing), but... that's it.  She wasn't the Roxxxy Andrews of this season (if you get my gist), but she didn't do enough to really shine the way that she did in her original season.  I will say this though... she changed my opinion of her.  During season 7, she always came across as very cold and somewhat unlikable, but All Stars 3 changed that for me and many others.  

BeBe Zahara Benet coasted for the first couple of episode's before ramping things up for herself a bit late in the game and has done a good job.  I think Ru has a love for BeBe that is far greater than many of the other queens who have stayed on the show, and that's why she has partially stuck around for this long.  I understand them giving her the Tatianna treatment, except BeBe is already a "winner baby" and I don't think she really deserves another crown as she hasn't done THAT much to really deserve it all over again.  

That leaves Trixie Mattel, who is really the only one who could take the crown from Shangela.  It's interesting with Trixie, because she has developed such an incredible career outside of RPDR, yet can't really get it together while on the show.  She, just like BeBe, sort of coasted the first couple of episode's before landing in the bottom 3 and almost getting sent home due to Shangela's wording of her elimination that scared the bejesus out of all of us. It lit a fire under her ass, and she wound up winning two of the next three challenges, but never winning the lip sync in order to send someone home.  Kennedy, BeBe and Shangela have all had that opportunity, whereas Trixie has not.  I think Trixie is a great drag queen, very funny, has unique fashions, but it doesn't translate to being a winner for something like this.  Did she get redemption?  Sort of.  But it doesn't compare at all to the levels and depths that Shangela has gone to in order for her to really win the title.

That being said, who do YOU think should win All Stars 3?  Let us know your thoughts! 



Here They Are: The First Photos from 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 10!

2018 might just be the "draggiest" year ever, as we are going from one drag competition to the next without having a chance to readjust our tuck!

All Stars 3 only has two more episodes to go until season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race premieres on March 22nd!  We revealed who is part of the sickening cast two weeks ago, and now Entertainment Weekly has exclusive photos from the first episode that highlights what a different season this truly will be. 

There's a lot to look at here.  First off, the werk room has gotten a major upgrade since last season, as the walls are covered in hot pink and look absolutely fabulous.  Secondly, and this may only be for the first episode, but it looks like there's a lot more pit crew members this time around as opposed to just Jason J. Carter and Bryce Ellenberg

The entrance looks from Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, Monét  X Change, and Mayhem Miller. are very on point, with Mayhem edging the other girls out (IMHO) as the deep red she's wearing looks incredible.  Mayhem is coming into this competition with a major reputation, as she was pretty much on the same level as the RPDR girls in terms of being known prior to entering the competition, so it should be interesting to see how she does on S10. 

Of course, one of the exclusive photos shows the judges panel, where everyone is back (Ross Matthews, Carson Kressley, Michelle Visage) and one more special squirrel friend is added to the mix for the premiere... Christina Aguilera! Should be another exciting season of Drag Race that will take us all the way into gay pride month and beyond.

Are you excited for season 10? Anyone in particular you are rooting for?  Let us know! 

Is it too late to RuPaulogize?!

Seems like Mama Ru is in hot water after an interview that was published by The Guardian in which RuPaul gives great insight into his life as an icon and the purpose behind the global phenomenon of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

During the interview, Ru delineates how Drag is a way to denounce masculinity with the purpose of appearing hyperfeminine, although we’ve seen many versions of drag that are gender-bending:

Drag loses its sense of danger and its sense of irony once it’s not men doing it, because at its core it’s a social statement and a big f-you to male-dominated culture. So for men to do it, it’s really punk rock, because it’s a real rejection of masculinity.

He also touches on the over-arching reasoning for why drag is a necessary construct:

For people to do drag and make it their profession in a male-dominated culture, they have to go through so much emotional tug-of-war, because society says, ‘You’re not supposed to do that.’ So, the strength and humanity it takes to maintain yourself and your dreams create many different layers of consciousness. That’s where the humanity comes from.

But when it comes to the subject of transgender competitors on RPDR, a topic that has been highly discussed among drag race face, RuPaul goes in on his philosophy for how trans and drag should essentially remain separate. He first mentions Peppermint, a contestant from Season 9 of RPDR:

Mmmm. It’s an interesting area. Peppermint didn’t get breast implants until after she left our show; she was identifying as a woman, but she hadn’t really transitioned. 

Then he was asked if he would he accept a contestant who had.

Probably not. You can identify as a woman and say you’re transitioning, but it changes once you start changing your body. It takes on a different thing; it changes the whole concept of what we’re doing. We’ve had some girls who’ve had some injections in the face and maybe a little bit in the butt here and there, but they haven’t transitioned.

Peppermint is not the only trans contestant on RPDR, but she was the first openly trans to make it onto the show. Other contestants have either came out as trans on the show like Sonique and Monica Beverly Hillz, while others have come out after Carmen Carrera, Gia Gunn, Kenya Michaels, Jiggly Caliente, and Stacy Layne Matthews. Jinx Monsoon has come out as gender non-binary.

RuPaul has been scrutinized in the past for his opinion about trans drag queens and their place in a competition like Drag Race—and mother sticks to her guns!

Just today, RuPaul tweeted some great shade with respect to the topic:





And Ru’s comments are not sitting well with RPDR alums:







But with the backlash, it seems that RuPaul has responded to make sure that everyone knows that there’s nothing but love for the trans community. And while that may be, fans and Ru followers can’t imagine what RPDR would be like today without the inclusion of some fan favorites who are trans and gender non-binary (see above). And what does this mean for the future of the show and the masses who idolize the drag community?

Still, it’s RuPaul Charles, Supermodel of the World—surely it’s not too late for her to Rupologize.

And then there’s this:



See? It’s obvious that he understands that the same mouth that inspires so many can also hurt others. After all, when approached by producers to create a drag reality show, RuPaul said “I don’t want to do anything mean-spirited.”





What do you think about this controversy in the RuPaul’s Drag Race universe? Do you agree with RuPaul or do you feel like there is room for more inclusion?
