RuPaul's Drag Race Tag.


I have three favourite TV shows - The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, and then RuPaul's Drag Race. Some might call it a guilty pleasure, but I think you can learn a lot from it, even if it is ostensibly just about men dressing up as women. So when Meggan from Cardigan Jezebel put together this amazing tag, I was so excited for an excuse to talk all things Drag Race!

Favourite season?

I think I'm the only person in the world who loved Season 7! I know it was a bit too polished for a lot of people, but I really loved how artistic it got. Although if we're including all the spin-offs, All Stars 2 was on another level. 

Favourite RuPaul song?

Well, obviously Read U Wrote U but that's probably cheating, so probably Glamazon. Really reminds me of working at Lush, we played it all the time there haha.

Favourite drag queen?

I know this is really predictable, but I'm the biggest Katya fangirl. She's just hilarious. I also love Trixie, but I don't think she got enough airtime on the show. Their YouTube show together (UNHhhh!) is amazing though. But honestly I love so many: Adore, Bianca, Alaska, Latrice Royale, Jujubee, Detox, Raven, Raja, Bob, Kim Chi, Ginger Minj, Willam, Violet, Alyssa, Tatianna, Pearl... there's so many I like!




Favourite maxi challenge?

I'm sorry but if you don't think Read U Wrote U is the best then ??? Nah but from the original show, I really love a good old fashioned Snatch Game, but my favourite main challenge was the perfume adverts in Season 5 - because I still want to know what Alyssa's secret is!

Have you ever seen any Ru-girls live?

Not yet! I really wanted to go to the Christmas Queens show last year, but didn't manage to. Maybe this will be my year!

Favourite Drag Race winner?

I really liked that Jinkx won after how mean Roxxxy was to her, it felt like poetic justice. And I know some people hate her, but I really think Violet deserved to win. But my favourites are probably Bianca or Bob.

Most robbed queen?

Raven in Season 2! How the hell did Tyra beat her?! And obviously Katya from All Stars... although I also think Detox performed better than Alaska too, sorry 'bout it.

Best fight?

The one where Laganja "felt very attacked!" was pretty epic, or when Coco and Alyssa finally faced off - "Girl, look how orange you fuckin' look!" "Oh, I'm not jokin' bitch!" - pure genius. But the one that had me open-mouthed in shock was the Pearl vs RuPaul fight... I was right there with Max in feeling uncomfortable!

Biggest shock? 

When Willam got disqualified. Didn't see that coming! Or when Mimi picked India Ferrah up during the lip sync. Say it with me now, "drag is not a contact sport!"

Most underrated runway look?

Max's Death Becomes Her look. It was so simple but so pretty.

Last but not least, what's your favourite lip sync?

Oh my god. This is so hard, so I did a top three instead.

Firstly, Detox and Jinkx's 'Malambo No. 1' is one of the funniest lip syncs ever. Fight me.

Next, Carmen Carrera and Raja's 'Straight Up' by Paula Abdul. Things got pretty sexy pretty quickly.

And lastly, Raven and Jujubee in All Stars 1. The emotion of them facing each other to Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own' made this spine-tingling to watch.

Also, honourable mention to Alyssa and Roxxxy's lip sync to 'Whip My Hair' - that wig reveal was unreal.



Soooo this was probably my favourite tag ever, thanks again to Meggan for coming up with it! I don't know if any of you watch Drag Race, but if you do and you want to do this tag, please tag me and Meggan on Twitter so we can see your answers! 

Do you watch Drag Race? Who's your favourite?
