‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×14’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Last week saw both Kandy Muse and Olivia Lux in the bottom two with Olivia been told to leave the competition. She had only been doing drag for just over a year so to get this far in the competition (beating out drag icons such as Tina Burner and Tamisha Imann) is incredible! I can’t […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×13’ Review

People are still talking about last weeks roast, due to the accusations of body shaming by Utica, who went home. She has since apologised for her ‘jokes’ but I am sure this is not how she would want to be remembered in the competition. Instead, I hope people will remember her for her iconic fashion, […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×12’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Due to the few early episodes where we met the queens in one vs one lip-syncs and the proceeding episodes where no one went home, this season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race seems to be never ending. At this rate, the finale episode (I wonder if they will do a big scale event or not) […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×11’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Last week episodes of Ru Paul’s Drag Race had a theme that ran through the mini, main and lip-sync song which made it must more congestive viewing-wise! We also saw the very controversial elimination of Denali whom many thought would win the competition. If you remember, Denali was told to leave after Olivia made her […]

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw the return of the iconic snatch games with had a very mixed bag of impressions. We had a modern interpretation of Mary Queen of Scots by Rosè (who has since created a hilarious sketch of this character adapting to modern life in New York) […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×09’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Well… last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK was a lot! We had a very interesting comedy challenge performed in front of an empty audience, with one of the queens jokes having to be bleeped-out due to their nan ringing up the BBC (it was A’whora); we had drama by the bucket full; […]

Now the production team at Ru Paul’s Drag Race are shady but know exactly what they are doing! In the last episode, we saw Kandy and Symone in the bottom two with Ru Paul deciding to award the converted double shantay (double save of you will) which cause outrage with the fans on social media! […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×08’ Review

by Rhys Payne

So last week the queens had to create an outfit from household items to transform themselves into lockdown (s)hero’s and I enjoyed that the show referenced the global situation, as everyone knows about it and is thinking about it. We saw A’whora shine as she crafted an incredibly impactful and dramatic outfit that served as […]

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK, we saw the elimination of Tia Kofi who was known for her camp outfits (which the judges called too ‘local’ for the biggest drag competition, but I have to be honest it’s this style of performance I would love to see live; and you can […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×08’ Review

by Rhys Payne

We never managed to get that drag mother versus daughter lip-sync that I believed was obvious from the moment the cast was announced. The family members Tamisha Imann and Lala Ri have now both been eliminated, with Lala going home last week and Tamisha the week before. Despite being “obvious” I would have secretly liked […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×06’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK will go down as one of the most memorable in episodes of Drag Race her-story! It started with all the queens been sent home and forced to quarantine for 7 months which was crazy; we had the return and second elimination of the international cabaret sensation […]

In last weeks episode of the US version of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw the elimination of the people’s queen Tamisha Imann. She had entered the hearts of the viewers from the moment she entered the werk room and so many people (myself included) was left devastated by her exit. Tamisha managed to maintain […]

by Rhys Payne

Okay, so the opening of this weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK was the most unusual in drag race her-story for multiple reasons! The episode starts with the queens discussing the iconic self-elimination of the enigma that is Ginny Lemon. A queen walking out during a lip-sync had never happened before, so seeing […]

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw Joey Jay sashay-away which is a shame as she bought a perspective new and exciting view of drag so it’ll be exciting to see where she end up in the coming months! Additionally, in the last episode we saw one of the best-crafted looks […]

Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK is quickly becoming one of the most unpredictable shows in modern television. Last week we watched Astina sashay away despite having previously won a challenge (where most of the other girls have not) ;on top of two fan-favourites going home very early in the series. It’s impossible to guess who […]

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race we bid farewell to the gorgeous Kahmora Hall, which must be particularly difficult considering her ‘sister’ Jaida Essence Hall won the previous season of Drag Race. We also bore witness to one of the greatest lip-sync performances in drag race herstory by the dancing diva Denali, […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK 2×03’ Review

by Rhys Payne

It seems like every Drag Race review I write starts with a moment of silence for the queen who went home the week before. It’s getting impossible to predict who is going home week by week as two of the heavy hitters, and my personal favourites, have gone home in the first two weeks – […]

This is the episode that every Ru Paul’s Drag Race fan has been waiting for, for what seems like the longest time (but it’s only been three weeks!)

by Rhys Payne

Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK deserves a massive round of applause for one of the most conducive episodes I have ever seen. If we ignore the mini-challenge in this episode; the runway, main challenge and judging panned were used perfectly in tandem to give a very well structure and thematic episode. The episode revolves around […]
