RuPaul‘s Drag Race Recap: Glue Make Us Blue
Last night on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 Ru kicked off the new season with only half of the fourteen drag contestants.
Now maybe it was us but we were complete disappointed with the contestants, because none of there girl can sew and when it comes to walking the runway – let’s just say they were less than any of the prior seasons. #Peeuw
Like Fashion Queens – we thought we’d gage at this season but instead the 1st 7 queens showed us hag! #Gage2Hag
The hostess with the mostess RuPaul, introducing the seven queens competing on Monday’s season 6 premiere, with a slew of unpolished young Queens. In an effort to shake it up like a stiff (no longer Absolut) cocktail, Ru changed the game for this edition of Drag Race, because, as Ru put it, “The only thing better than one big opening is two big openings.” The stakes are higher, and the eyes on the queens it more intense this go around, because Ru doesn’t want any queens slipping through the cracks. On week three, the final 12 will merge and emerge.
Wait, to make the competition a little more gaggier, RuPaul did one more twist – No immunity this season!
As for the other queens there are some promising contestants ready to get their lacefronts tight, their pad curvacious on, and heels high to walk, work and dominate the runway! Time to get the press-ons sharpened and caddiness started because it’s about to be a drag!
In the first part of season 6 premiere we got to meet:
Adore Delano (who can’t stitch if her life depended on it). When you think unpolished one name already comes to mind and thats Adore Delano. If you think she looks familiar then you right, she’s former American Idol top-13 finalist Danny Noriega, who came out the gate with an excess of sass — if not experience: ”For all the queens telling me that I’m not polished enough, I just want to tell them that I’m polish remover, b—-.” The only problem is she glues her gowns… #DaysNumbered #Unpolished
Gia Gunn automatically stuns in black and white checked and a hola hoop purse? Gia Gunn is already topping our list when it comes semi-finals and fish or as she say “Fresh Tilapia.” #FreshTilapia
BenDeLaCreme – who next for most talented to go far in Drag Race is BenDeLaCreme – talk about persona, charisma, and professional – she’s everything Ru looks for, everything Ru needs – because BenDeLaCreme is so beautiful to Ru can’t you see-e-e-e-e!
April Carrion – The least impressive queen to walk into the Drag Race Season 6 dressing was April. Luckily for her she snapped it back with her Duck Dynasty runway couture.
Vivacious – (who brings the club kid to drag) she explained her Orca look as “Leigh Bowery abstract entity… living art” – whateva works. Can someone give Vivacious a lesson is step it up this is RuPaul’s Drag Race? He vision is lackluster, confused and turbulent. Next Stop #LipSyncForYourLife
Laganja Estranja – She looks like she stepped out of Willy Wanka’s Chocolate factory or should we say escaped? Her drag sense is too boy despite winning the challange we want to see more from her, but she needs to step it up! She’s friends with Adore Delano as the saying goes “birdsofAFeather fits here because these gurls need work! Crossing fingers!
Kelly Mantle – The Christine Baranski/Carol Burnette look a like who flatlined immediately and did not impress her competition from the jump which was a trend that would continue through Monday’s premiere. Christine Baranski stunt double Kelly Mantle tried to work a floral bodice for her two-piece Downton Abbey frock, but the pattern just came off looking bacon-y. And don’t get Santino started on the polyester skirt! #ByeByeGurrrr
When it comes to competition with these seven only three are standing out thus far and their runway proved their worthiness.
Topping the list is BenDeLaCreme with her Michele Versace esque theatrics, April Carrion was a Duck Hunting Diva and Gia Gunn gave us Kardashian go-go antics – these three queens dominated the runway with their walk, fashion sense and performance. The only problem is Gia needs to zip it when the judges are speaking to her.
Borderline queens were Laganja Estranja, which sounds like a serious throat infection bored the judges and us with her too boy Whitney Houston Bodyguard look, and Adore Delano who gave face and her outfit looked like a mermaid out of water trying to grow legs…it was a disaster!
Who didn’t get it?
Vivacious with a unappealing, dreadful garment or she we say garbage-esque trash! #Peeuw
As for Kelly Mantle, we crossed out finger and then she walked on the runway like a wet red head desperately looking for a look! #Mess
The two faced off in a #LipSyncForYourLife and Vivacious proved she’s a New York Gurrl, because she worked the lip-sync. She just needs to work her garments.
Kelly Mantle was asked to sashay away and Vivacious got the sashay you stay. As for this weeks winner? That went to BenDeLaCreme of course…
Until next week and the other seven…
