I actually like all of the queens on this season, and I don’t know how some viewers already have strong opinions about some of the queens. I have some issues with a few, but we’ll see how they progress in the show.
Adore: Now, I understand why she should have been in the bottom two. But I don’t think she would have gone home because this girls performances are fucking fierce. She dropped the ball as a leader, but the other girls cant hide behind casting issues for their awful performances. I really like Adore’s character, and honestly I think she’s going to go really far. I just hope that she brings the excitement and energy to the show that makes some of the other queens so intriguing.
Courtney: I don’t understand some of the hate thrown at her. Courtney is soooo funny and charming, I love her so far. I also appreciate that she keeps her ego in check even though she’s obviously more well known than most of the queens. Courtney also won my respect a lot in the first Untucked when she spoke about her relationships with men while in drag. She was very articulate and really revealed an interesting side of life as a drag queen. I cant wait to see more of her.
Bianca: Obviously she’s funny. Obviously. But I do feel that sometimes she targets people for the express purpose of tearing them down. I thought her little spat with Trinity was unnecessary and rude. I’m a bit conflicted about her.
Darienne: I hope she makes it to the top three! She’s so beautiful and talented! And my god is she ever funny! Although I thought she came off a bit close-minded in Untucked, to each their own. But really, I can’t wait to see how she does in the competition, she really interests me.
Gia: She’s causing all sorts of controversy. I’m holding out hope that this diva act has a punchline because otherwise she’s just vapid and mean. I guess what I’m saying is, if you’re going to be rude, be so rude that its funny. Learn to read, not just throw shade. Holding out hope for her!
Laganja: Everyone’s hating on how she speaks, but she is a talented queen. I dont think she’s had a chance to show off yet, but I hope she gets the chance.
Trinity: I thought I wasn’t going to like Trinity, if only because of the “K” in her name. But she’s proved that she’s more than a wannabe, and her makeup is on point. While I dont think she looks like Beyonce, I see nothing wrong with having that dream. Like I said, I don’t understand the tension that Bianca created between them.
Milk: I was really expecting to be blown away by Milk this season, there has been so much hype about her. I’m not really seeing too much energy so far. I like her looks, but they’re just not blowing me away! Like Adore, I just don’t see the excitement that makes some other queens like Darienne and Ben really fascinating.
April and Joslyn: They’re getting a bit lost in the mix, but they’re both strong queens. I hope they dont end up as filler, I want to see what they can do.
Ben: Star material. I think she’ll become my favourite. She’s such a polished and talented queen, I think she’ll shine in Snatch Game.
Vi: I’ll miss her. She brought a really strong character to the show, and she was really funny and clever. She did really poorly in the challenge, and I agree that a queen of that status should be able to perform with a bit more enthusiasm (even if your part is only a head). I dont think she should have had to change her drag to “keep current”, because what she does, she does well. Overall I genuinely wish we’d seen more of her, but I do think she deserved the loss this week.
Did I miss anyone?
