If you’ve been watching Season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you are probably part of the army of fans who is finding this iteration of the cult phenomenon to be a little…uneventful. With so many queens that it has been hard to keep them straight, this season has had acting challenge after acting challenge with little variety in main challenges. The runways have been the best representation of what the queens are serving, thus far. But really, the best part of Season 11 has been Untucked, the RuPaul’s Drag Race after show where the queens pour the piping hot tea—then spill it.
One particular topic of conversation that has been lingering in the workroom, seemed to have boiled over in last week’s Untucked. The rumors about Season 11 queens Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and Brooke Lynn Hytes have been a’brewin’! The two have been shown on camera kissing and hugging and giving each other some extra special moral support.

Like A’Keria Davenport has stated “There might be something beautiful blossoming from this work room. Mmmm hmmm.”
In the preview for this week’s episode, we see more of the Vanjie/Brooke Lynn lovey dovey action and Vanjie is heard saying “Brooke Lynn’s a good friend of mine”.

Up until Season 11, it is unknown publicly if there has ever been any off screen romance or kaikai amongst the queens. The worst is when Willam infamously got disqualified in Season 4 for having extra special conjugal visits.
But can we believe that what is transpiring on screen is actually a relationship between the Season 11 queens?
Today, Miss Vanjie posted on Instagram something that gave everyone life.
First she posted a very casual image of herself with Brooke Lynn saying “Let me introduce you to my toes” A special nickname?
Then, she posted the same photo on Twitter, this time quoting the famous Grease song “Summer lovin had been a blast summer lovin happen so fast” (grammar forgiven).
Just a day ago Vanjie commented on a photo of Brooke Lynn Hytes with Season 9 winner Sasha Velour. Vanjie commented “watch those hands Brooky Poo” and included a knife emoji.
Could the two just be playing this game for the fans or is there something more that we should know? Whatever it is, we are here for it!
WHAT IS GOING ON?!
Very interesting turn of events for Season 11—let’s hope the rest of the season becomes equally interesting.
