It pains me to write this, but I know a lot of you out there agree with me. This season was very less than or it sucked! I keep trying to figure out why it just didn’t pop like all the others, including All-Stars. The biggest change this season, it aired exclusively on VH1; a little problematic, especially that pre-show aka “Fierce Fridays” with Wendy Williams which after a few weeks mysteriously disappeared. Good move, but it couldn’t save the lack of excitement.
The season started with Lady GaGa finally making her ‘Drag Race’ debut as a mystery queen then as a judge in a challenge that one, RuPaul didn’t dress in drag for, and two it brought back Cynthia Lee Fontaine, the CuCu. Sadly, not Queen CuCa.
And don’t get me started on Valentina. Did she have the best shot to win? Yes, alas.
Valentina is an example of what happens when you totally think you’ll win and you don’t prepare. Lip syncing is THE essential drag queen skill, such horseshit! The fact she won Miss Congeniality made me more angry. It was fan-voted, it was fair but I don’t agree. I voted for Eureka who will be coming back next season due to her early exit for knee surgery. Thus, we still wait for a big queen to take the crown. Sigh.
I’ll just cut to the chase, here is who I want to win:
Shea Coulee’ slayed this season. It’s not that I don’t think Sasha Velour (who is rumored to be the winner), Peppermint, and Trinity Taylor aren’t worthy, Shea just brought it a little harder, and she can dance!
I’m praying next up is an All-Stars season. Season 10 better be better.
