RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10– “THE FINALE”

After a season that did little to celebrate the series’ season ten milestone, last night’s RuPaul’s Drag Race finale took time before crowning its latest winner to pay homage to its much humbler roots. The bloated finale took its time getting to the good stuff, building anticipation for a battle that took a few bizarre turns. Opening…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 12 – “AMERICAN”

It’s the final four henny, and there’s not a moment to waste. Season ten of RuPaul’s Drag Race is winding to a close, and it’s a fight to the finish. Before we can even de-geish from our evil twin garb, the claws are out. Asia feels badly about being so harsh about Cracker’s lack of star power (though…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 11 – “EVIL TWINS”

One of the joys of watching reality TV is seeing larger-than-life personas act with an utter lack of self-awareness. Could you imagine watching the dinks on The Bachelor self-reflect? Hard pass. So last night’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, which tasked the girls with confronting their inner “saboteur” was a slog. At every turn, the premise of each gal’s “evil…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 9 – “BREASTWORLD”

What happened to our girls? After last week’s dynamic Cher Rusical, slap-happy mini-challenge and glitterific runway, last night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race felt like everyone spiked their Absolut berry acai cocktails with a hefty helping of Ambien. (Or at least Flaccida.) It was an off-week for even the strongest competitors, yielding a middling episode up until a thrilling…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 8 – “THE UNAUTHORIZED RUSICAL”

After one of the weaker episodes of the season last week, this week’s RuPaul’s Drag Race delivers a knockout. A spectacular runway was preceded by a hilarious mini-challenge and a Rusical fit for a Kween. The episode featured some great moments with the queens bonding and an excellent lip sync that ended the episode on a high note. What…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 7 – “SNATCH GAME”

It’s safe to say Snatch Game is the most anticipated episode of every season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The signature challenge blends so many fan-favorite elements, like humor, pop-culture savvy, and celebrity skewering. The queens are tasked with bringing their best, needing to pull off a look, a point-of-view and be lightning quick on their feet….

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 3 – “TAP THAT APP”

Another week, another hokey acting challenge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s easy to forget how many of these early-season episodes are devoted to large, group acting challenges that don’t do most these girls any favors. Wake me up when it’s time for Snatch Game, I guess. Unlike last week’s silly lip-sync, this time the comedy is…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 2 – “PharmaRusical”

After the overly-complex (and controversial) end of All Stars(we’re all still salty about that, right?), it’s nice to see Drag Race get back to basics. Last night’s episode was chock full of the sort of silly slapstick that’s this show’s (sprouted, low-carb) bread and (grass-fed, clarified) butter. I’m thrilled to see the return of the mini-challenges (even though this…
