This Open Thread Has Drag Race Thoughts

Kittens – behold, we are now in the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Now, while our good lady Miss Worded is keeping you up to date with a full on recap each week (bless her soul), I needed to get a few initial thoughts off my chest about this latest season.

Animated gif from RuPaul's Drag Race of a drag queen saying, "So, I'm mediocre..."

Hmm, maybe girl. Am I potentially experiencing some serious withdrawal from the queens I came to know and love from season 3 and 4? Or does this round seem a little…meh. As we speak, I’m thinking Detox or Alaska for the win.

Nonetheless, the season proves to be veritable eye candy, talented, beautiful babies, and at least I have picked up a new catch phrase…

Someone gestures at his crotch and says "I can see your seafood platter."

Despite some of my “meh” feelings with this seasons queens, once I got into the first episode and my wine glass, I was having good feeling all around. Oh but the best part –  Untucked. Lets just say that Untucked makes me wanna….

So this season should prove interesting at the very least.  Plus, two queens with porn pasts ! (Detox and Jade Jolie) Thats a lot of talent – and from the photos I’ve seen floating around the interwebz on these two’s foray into porn, all I can say is…

I’ll be watching this show with bells and whistles, a fan till the very end. But can I give a little love to those who captured my heart?

Goodbye for now my lovely, enchanted womenz.

What about you babies – who are your favorite queens? What are your picks for this season?

I’m thinking Lynesha Sparx is the one to watch. I agree that Alaska isn’t bringing it–she’s just not interesting enough (what made Sharon’s particular campy edge work was a keen intelligence bolstering it–remember the awesome reference to Grey Gardens?). I really like Jade Jolie and am curious about Ivy Winters.

Favorite queens of all time? Raven, Needles, Flowers,

& Raja!

Not Alaska. I like her and all, but she’s not bringing it. I have no idea who’s going to win this season … all the queens left seem pretty great. I agree with what others have said about this season; the spread is very narrow.

My eternal favourite is Nina Flowers. I love so many others though!
