RuPaul’s Drag Race is one of my favorite shows and each season I have watched it religiously. Each season I have to give it a few weeks before I can settle on my picks. I have to get a feel for the ladies and who they are. So I’m finally settled on who I want to see in the final three.
It’s about time a big girl do something more than just show up on the show as a token to prove ‘we don’t discriminate against big girls’. It’s time for one to show up as a true contender. Latrice is funny, smart and she is a professional. I was just as disgusted by the shenanigans on last night’s Snatch Game episode as Latrice was. The entire bottom row with the exception of Chad Michaels were an embarrassment. If you want to give the illusion of being female, act like ladies and not a bunch of vulgar jocks in the locker room.
Out of all the celebrity impersonations I have seen on Snatch Game, Chad’s Cher was the most realistic I have ever seen and I loved that we got more than one version of Cher! I also have to applaud Chad for keeping his cool and staying in character while everyone else on the front row acted like toddlers at recess. I know that a lot of people would say that Chad doing Cher was safe since he is a Cher impersonator, but there are a lot of impersonators out there that will never be able to so perfectly mimic someone like Chad did. Not just the make up and the look but the mannerisms and body language.
Sharon is still scary but she stands out from the pack. That is the very same thing that caught my attention with Raja, last season’s winner. Raja stood out. While everyone else was trying to do the pageant beautiful drag, Raja did his/her own thing and brought a new feel to the runway. Sharon has that same quality. She’s a bit dark in her drag but it is fresh and the next anything should always be fresh and bring something new to the table. And I have to say impersonating someone who is about to judge you for your drag takes guts. You did it successfully with Michelle Visage.
RuPaul’s Drag Race is a search for America’s next Drag Superstar not America’s same old boring drag queen. Latrice and Sharon would both qualify as fresh and new. Sharon’s goth undercurrent or Latrice’s big bold and confident attitude would both be something new.
Now for two who cannot sashay away fast enough for me, Willam and PhiPhi. PhiPhi is simply another boring pagent queen and Willam do you really think anyone bought your little academy award acting job last night? I’ll be glad to see the last of both of you.
