RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE SEASON 11 PREMIERE — CELEB REALNESS!
The premiere of a new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race always leaves my head spinning.
So many kweens, so many names, so many attempts at being memorable!
Especially after Miss Vanjie‘s (Welcome back!!!) now-legendary turn flaunting all them cookies in just one episode last year, every girl came into season 11 with a bible of catchphrases, one-liners and shtick. I’m talking to you Silky Nutmeg Ganache!
Silky was my fave kween …for the first five minutes of the episode. But by the commercial break, her thirsty AF antics left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. Gurl, breathe & simma down. Nobody ever wants that much dessert, evah. TRUST!
And finally, there’s our eliminated queen Soju. While pulling off another Vanjie-style star-making coup after sashaying away in the first episode is nearly impossible, bequeathing the world with her unforgettable “taint cyst” is quite the valiant effort. Annyeonghi gaseyo, Miss Soju. Miss Soju. MISS …SO JU!
Now while I go change my last name to Davenport, check out the celebrity dopplegänger realness from episode 1.
MISS VANJIE – LA TOYA JACKSON
The children love Miss Vanjie so much you’d think we were at Neverland. #TooSoon
BROOKE LYNN HYTES – PINK
Brooke Lynn is starting on such a high that we may be seeing some aerial gynmastics soon.
NINA WEST – HEAT MISER
It’s the year without a Santa Claus for Nina. She’s too much!
SILKY NUTMEG GANACHE – OPRAH
No standing O for Silky’s thirsty behavior, but we are gonna need a sitdown interview.
SUGA CAIN – MEGHAN McCAIN
By the looks of it, Suga’s dreams won’t be aborted anytime soon.
YVIE ODDLY – SLICK WOODS
I’ve only got one thing to say: You betta werk, Supermodel!
A’KERIA C. DAVENPORT – LIL’ KIM
Something tells me A’keria can make a Sprite can disappear in her mouth.
ARIEL VERSACE – PEG BUNDY
Every big haired gurl from Jersey wants to be married with children, okrrrrr.
SCARLET ENVY – TAMMIE BROWN
Proof that being Pearl‘s daughter is not the weirdest thing about Scarlet.
PLASTIQUE TIARA – JESSICA ALBA
We need to be honest about Plastique’s chances.
HONEY DAVENPORT – KENYA MOORE
This New York queen is gone with the wind fabulous, hunty!
RA’JAH O’HARA – RUTH POINTER (SISTERS)
I’m so excited to see what Ra’jah can do this season, sis.
MERCEDES IMAN DIAMOND – J.LO
Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got, she’s still early ’90s Jenny from the block.
KAHANNA MONTRESE – EVE
Kahanna’s skills are the talk, so I’m hoping Ru will let her blow ya mind.
SOJU – BETTE MIDLER
The power of Drag Race means a cyst on your taint can still lead to outrageous fortune.
Who are you rooting for? So far, it’s still all about Vanjie for me.
