Is Ru-Paul’s Drag Race. Sorry ANTM, that’s just the way it is.
Several drag queens perform various challenges: do an Oprah-style interview, put on each other’s make-up, a Viva Glam screen test, and so on. Then they get into gear and onto the runway for judging. The bottom two have to Lip Synch for their Life! It’s amazing. I’ve only seen a couple episodes, but seriously. The drama!
I am thinking Ongina or Bebe to win. Ongina announced in the last episode that she is HIV+, right after doing the Viva Glam shoot– and as you ladies know, MAC cosmetics gives 100% of the proceeds from the Viva Glam to AIDS/HIV causes. She totally won the challenge, too. Balloons! And Bebe is gooooorrrrgeoous!
The cast is really diverse, the judges are beautiful– hello again, Jenny Shimizu! It’s been a while! And the catwalk looks are a tad more interesting that what you’d see from Jay Manuel on that other show. Which I will continue to watch. Because.
