why are there old queens in season 5 trailer?
Can't wait. Loving Alaska and Monsoon. Alaska has a very similar fun/slightly scary vibe to her like his/her bf Sharon Needles.
Not long til S5 starts and have yet to finish All Stars.
Here's a vid showing the girls out of drag. Who do you guys think is the most attractive? I think Alyssa Edwards is gorgeous and Ivy Winters is ADORABLE! Although I'm not sexually attracted to any of them.

I'm just waiting for the shade. If I had to choose (like....forced) I'd go with ivy winters.
I think she was doing a cover of "It's Raining Men" with the Weather Girls.
yeeeeeehaw! this was a really good episode. im so excited.
this time, there is no queen that immediately won my heart, no queen that really stood out, no frontrunner. thats a bit of a pity, but it also makes it a little more interesting, competition wise.
the only one im really rooting for at this point is vivienne, but i always root for the asian girl. shes very pretty, and her entrance look was fierce, as was her shoot. but her runway look was way too plain. turn it up, girl!
serena: having an art school background myself, i get that the way we talk can be a little annoyning, and not intentionally so. but art school or not, serena just was annoying, period. her runway look was a disaster, but at least she brought it during the lip synch.
lineysha: wow. she is BEAUTIFUL. her runway look was kickass (although she seemed a little thick around her waist) and i think she should have won. shes pretty cute out of drag, too.
roxxxy: she seems pretty personable. i didnt think her runway look was the best; i liked her huge hair and her ass-showing gown, but there was too much shit glued to it.
jade: i like her personality. her runway look was bad, but she has potential. early favorite.
detox: her photo was hands down the best. like chad, shes creepy out of drag. her runway look was dreary.
alyssa: this one is a shit stirrer. im not buying her "feud" with coco for a single second.
coco: at least she seems a little more personable than alyssa, but her out-of-drag contacts are such a turn off.
alaska: her runway look was pretty good, but her photo shoot non-performance was a real disappointment.
honey mahoganey: rather unpolished, and not pretty at all.
penny tration: she didnt bring it. oh well.
I love this season already. I found every Queen to be fierce in their own way. I did agree that Penny deserved to go. I wasn't feeling Serena Cha Cha at first but I thought she looked ADORABLE performing Party in the USA and did deserve to stay. My favorites before the show aired were Ivy Winters, Vivienne Pinay, and Lynaesha Sparxx. After watching the show, they still very much are. The girls that grew on me were Jade Jolie (adorable), Roxxy Andrews (fierceee), and Jynx Monsoon (Pandora Boxxx+Sharon Needles+Tammie Brown?). The one's I'm so-so about but know they can still turn it out later in the season, similar to Phi Phi, are Monica Beverly Hillz, Serena Cha Cha, Alaska, and Honey Mohogany. I don't really care much for the Coco+Alyssa drama and don't really care much for Detox either, but nevertheless, still all fierce. Alyssas walk on the runway though... tone it down, girl.
Ru said in an interview that this was the first season with a love connection in the group, I am excited to find out who hooks up.
alaske is a favorite for me
i dont think its fair that people are comparing her to sharon
shes very different and she should be given a chance
jinx, alaska, detox ivy winters and the girl with the nbc logo are my favorites
So far I'm really liking Ivy Winter( kinda cute as a boy) , Jinx Moonsoon (Is funny), Jade Jolie (did'nt like her at first but really grew on me towards the end and has a sweet personality but can still be fierce), Lineysha Sparx (gorgeous as a girl and guy).
I really like this seasons so far can't wait o see how this all unfold, by the way really can't stand Alaska fucken annoying as hell, and I'm just not feeling Detox as she seems to be the most popular one.
Good point Sparky, would make for a VERY dramatic episode!
I wonder if Ru knew both Jade and Detox did porn and put them on the show to add to the buzz.
phiphi is not asian tho, right? i thought she was latino.
did not know that.
i guess i dont love every asian girl after all :/
Not going to spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen this weeks epi yet, but I'm so glad for who went home I will HALLELOOO!
another really cool episode! the queens did all really well, except for serena, who was sent home for good reasons.
ivy winters: i didnt catch her name last ep, but i already thought back then that she makes a cute boy, in that nerdy kind of way. she seems really personable, too. not blown away by her drag yet.
vivienne: come on, hon! TURN IT UP!
lineysha: shes not only breathtakingly beautiful, but also has talent, and a shit-stirring side, apparently. a deserved win, shes one to look out for. her runway look was nothing special, tho.
jade: she seems all bubbly and sweet, but then she 1) has a fierce side to her, 2) has a shit-stirring side to her, and 3) turns out a unexpected kick-ass runway look. im intrigued!
monica: shes very personable, but the corners of her mouth are perpetually turned downwards. she needs to stop being a sourpuss and start kicking some ass.
coco: i like her, somewhat against my better judgement. her runway look was the best of all the looks so far this season.
alyssa: i didnt hate her this week. her performance was actually really good.
honey mahogany: better than last week, but still somewhat unpolished.
detox & alaska: those two are good and professional, but i also find them ever so slightly underwhelming.
Im so glad Serena went home..she was super annoying and still very much acting like teenager + her outfits and make up looked like shit....
Detox is veyr polish but i cant stand his attitude and the whole im humbled thing she said....well then better show it...i dont mind a queen with confidence as long as they can back it up like Raja could....Also the way Detox paints her nose makes it look so huge and thing and she need to get another gimmick than that mouth thing...
I think the interview scenes with Coco are amazing.. I like Jinx & Alaska because they are very quick in delevering a read or a line....
About Monica i wonder what the rules are for transgender...I mean if they had begin to take hormones they will have a huge step a head because they will naturally begin to get more female features..
I'm so glad SC went home, although I do think the queens were harsh with her.
I'm liking Alaska a lot more than I did in the first episode.
My favorites so far are Vivienne, Roxxy, and Detox.
I'm on the fence about Jade, but I like that she's sweet and not sweet at the same time.
First let me say Alaska is amazing. I know her and have seen so many of her and Sharons performances before the show. They are a lil similar but to say shes a copycat of Sharon is wrong. I am rooting for her,Detox,and Roxxxy over everybody. I want the drama queens coco and alyssa out asap. Lineysha is so hot outta drag as is Roxxxy. And for anyone who says Alaska is there by who she knows,the same could be said for Detox because she and Willam are like best friends and she has worked alot with Chad Michieals
I just don't understand what people see in Detox? She's a polished Queen, yes, but there's nothing about her that screams the "Next Drag Superstar". When they came out with that "Ro-laska-tox" crap I was like "Really?". It was awkward to watch them act like the cool girls of the season when really, everyone is (excluding miss Cha Cha lol).
I find it funny that not one, but two people are saying Coco is in her early 40's. I know if I were Coco, I'd be pissed as hell. FYI, she's 37, not early 40's.
another good episode! untucked was kinda useless this time around, though.
alyssa & coco: ugh. their little theater bores me to tears. and its working for them, too, since the producers are lapping it up. i wish one of the queens would call them out on just how fake it all is... now that would lead to some real fireworks! aside from that, they both actually have some talent, particularly coco. i dont know if pedo-drag is the way to go, but i have to admit, her outfit was impeccable. the pedo-bear was a nice touch.
detox: the runway look was fantastic. deserved win.
ivy: still not impressed by her drag, but totally crushing on him as a boy!
jinx: personable and talented. her runway look was adorable. out of drag, she freaks me out a little, tho.
vivienne: girl, im giving up on ya. shes gorgeous, but boring as hell.
jade: troublemaker, but at least she has some talent to back it up.
honey: wtf? this one needs to be called out on her dreary drag sometime soon.
roxxy & alaska: sure, theyre good, but a little too full of themselves. raja & manila at least were clearly head and shoulders above the rest.
Agree on the whole Coco/Alyssa thing...so boring and so teenage like.. but I really wanna know what Alyssa did to be d-crowned...
also I dont really get why the judges were so hard on Alaska not being in drag...if thats the case what about D-tox's chicken (or ravens in season 2) or Jade's look...
I loved Alaska's runway look with her pink ak41....Didten enjoy d-tox's..didten read pink from it just beige...and if you do the nude look you should have painted some nipples on that breastplate....
^To be fair, Raven and Jessica Wild HAD to wear that costume in season 2 to play the part of the chicken - in fact, that was Raven's main gripe.
I've watched 3 episodes and so far have not seen a "runaway" winner - Roxxy kind of comes close. KINDA.
"Heads buried in the sand,
You are impotent..."
no editing in the world could save viviennes "comdey" performance, or her boring runway looks. she hasnt worn a single interesting thing this entire season. the polka-dot dress she initially showed up in was cute, but thats about it.
Because Vivian had so much time in the previews for next weeks episode I think she is going home next. Not that it really matters, she has had so little air time we don't even know her.
I'm hoping Vivienne comes out of her shell. Sometimes the girls that either win or get close to winning don't get as much airtime in the beginning because there are so many other girls to focus on.
Roxxxy is cute out of drag.
Roxxxy seems to be a strong contestant for me, and likable too!! She's very sweet
and if Lineysha showed more personality, she could be a winner too
I think this is the weakest one in terms of talent, but the drama is high!
pouring into the night
on tainted fingertips
Others than me that think Ivy Winters looks completly like Michelle Paige Brooks?
You mean "Nicole" Paige Brooks? Not really, Nicole's ratchet.
So excited for tonights episode, I just hope it steers the season into another direction. Right now it's just... yawn.
this episode, it was harder than ususal to assess how the individual queens did, since they didnt create the dance routines themselves, and the runway show was cut short.
bye, honey and vivienne, no one will miss you! gawd, those two were boring, and ru did the exact right thing. not that it matters, but i think vivienne had the tighter lip-synch.
so, alyssa is making weird faces in front of the mirror. the thing is, the faces she makes whenever shes not in front of a mirror - in and out of drag - are even weirder.
jinks & ivy: adorable. former is a frontrunner and im so crushing on the latter.
alaska may have been insecure about her dancing, but i loved her prim mom drag.
detox is super polished and she always brings it, even if she doesnt always stand out. she is this seasons chad michaels.
coco - ugh.

I was mad sitting on the couch watching Vivienne and Honey stand there like DUCKS during Oops! I would've busted out the actual choreography. They weren't ready.
i thougth Roxxy was cute also but now i just find him fucking annoying..we get he lost weight and he is proud it...but the bitch needs to turn it down and his looks...i mean he was wearing clear stripper heels for one of the episodes..no no no no....
I think the right ones went home this week Vivienne had her chance and Honey was just wearing the same look over and over and no personality...and i loooove a good kraftan both thoose were bad
Speaking of same looks wasent Alyssa wearing the same outfit as she did when the girls were arriving on the first episode...just with a hat this time? and what was up with detox's look? that looked soooo homemade and messy
but im kinda sick of these time things and i need some more stuff were the girls have to make their own outfits......
spunks, I feel the exact same way about Roxxxy -- or her, Delta, and Alaska for that matter. They remind me of the kids in high school that "want to be" popular and "think" they're popular when really, they're not. They're trying to be the "Heathers" of this season, NOT EVEN CLOSE. They're so delusional and it's so irritating to watch.
Anyway, loved this past episode because it validated some of the girls' position in the competition. Alyssa did a phenomenal job and I like her a little bit more now. Ivy got some good feedback, too. She'll do great in single challenges as she's used to making outfits out of unconventional things. I don't know what the judges were thinking, but I loved Jynx's outfit. I got a Ke$ha/Gaga vibe. Viv and Honey needed to go. Easily the worst lip-sync of all seasons.
So with two queens gone, doesn't that mean one more comes back? Everyone who was eliminated so far deserved to go. If not that, then Ru probably just won't send a Queen home next week.
Usually by episode 4, I would already have a favorite queen but I still don't have a favorite season 5 queen yet. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........I wonder why.

i like this season because so far the challenges have been fun, the judges' decision havent been too nutty, and the contestants are entertaining. however, i agree that there havent been any break-out stars this season. i guess jinkx and detox come closest.
I agree with hylas though - the challenges this year have been very fun, a big improvement over last year where it seemed at times they were phoning it in. Just wish the queens were as memorable.

"Heads buried in the sand,
You are impotent..."
ok, it took a while, but jinkx is defnitely my favourite now. a deserved win... and shut up, michelle visage; you cant judge anybody while wearing that ugly ass cardigan!
coco/alyssa/jade: ugh ugh ugh
ivy: i liked her runway look, but i have to admit, shes the blandest one left. probably the next to go. but, dear ivy, if i give you my number, will you call me?
rolaskatox: like always, good but not great. i liked roxxys hair on the runway.
lynesha: she cut her hair, didnt she? anyway, probably the first truly talented queen to go home. i have to admit, i never quite "connect" with the puerto rican queens, and she was no exception.
I finally have a favorite and it's Jynx. Took a bit but I got there. I'm very over all this Alyssa/CoCo nonsense but I have to say it really seems like CoCo is typically the one stoking the fires although she seems like the person I'd typically like more out of the two.
this was a really bad week for coco.
first, she brags about not knowing who little edie is. bitch, youre a drag queen pushing 40(?). shame on you!
then she gives a total non-performance as janet jackson, although she is a professional janet jackson impersonator. how embarassing.
her runway look was crap, too. it was pure minaj, but with the details all wrong. minaj would never wear that jewlery with that wig and that catsuit. you either replicate it faithfully, or you interpret it in some interesting way... she fell uncomfortably between either of these options.
I guess I'm old school but this is the ugliest bunch of drag queens, save a few, I've ever seen. I just guess camp drag was never my thing really. I can really appreciate someone that can give the total realistic allusion of being a woman. I don't personally understand it but I can appreciate it.
The only few that could possibly do that are Ivy Winters and the Roxy kid and maybe the Asian guy. If they changed everything they do. The rest of them are just camp drag gals and not very entertaining.
Last night was a lose/lose for me because I love both Detox and Lineysha. Mostly because Lineysha was just so damn unintentionally funny. But I'ma miss ha tho.
Roxxxy established herself as my favorite last night, because that Tamar Braxton impersonation... she DID THAT! Yas.

It was time for Linesha to go. She was very fishy, but otherwise pretty boring. With that said, I thought her lip sync was a bit tighter than Detox's, although Detox was more entertaining.
Ivy really disappointed me. Her Marilyn was boring and I couldn't believe she didn't get that president line.
Roxxy is still the frontrunner for me, but I think Detox is strong too.
I really loved the Alyssa, Coco, and Jade drama on Untucked. I hope they can bring some of that energy to the runway because there are times when I'm a bit bored by all three of them.
Jinkx is fun, but I would like to see stronger glam, so we know she's well-rounded.
Overall, I'm enjoying this season, but it's not my favorite.
Jinxx was amazing...and theese queens should be ashamed of not knowing about little edie but im sure they know all the lyrics to kesha horrrrrrible.......The way these queens are judgeing her is horrible...reminds me of when Raja was there...
I thought Detox was horrible agian...her Kesha was so fucking boring ( i really didten see a big transformation from her to detox) and the runway look was the same siluette as ladt week just two layered this time and still it looked like shit .. Also I think she is one trick pony once all she can do perfomance wise is the jaw thing
I really liked Alaska's Lady bunny..spot on I think her & jinxx are the only two who have the quickness and humor that it takes...the rest of the queens are just looks
