‘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 […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

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.

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, […]

So last weeks opening episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Season 13 received mixed reviews from fans around the world. While the twist of lip-syncs as soon as the queens entered the werk room was, at first, very exciting it fizzled out quickly when everyone had to watch the same scene played over and over […]

This weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race All-Stars was more subdued regarding drama this week, due to the intense drama initiated by India who left the competition after Shea Coulee won the lip-sync.

After the ‘interesting’ musical performance of Drag Race original song ”I’m In Love” with one queen dominating both the maxi and mini-challenge, I was excited to see if this weeks episode can bring the momentum back but unfortunately, It did not.
