Who enjoys RuPaul's Drag Race?
« on: March 10, 2009, 08:23:54 AM »
Is anyone else watching RuPaul's Drag Race?

Episode 4 was quite weird, with the topic of HIV breaking through all the drag drama, but very dramatically.

One of the contestants, Ongina - a very vivacious competitor, had a break down after winning the contest to make a public service announcement for MAC Cosmetics and HIV/AIDS funding - announcing in tears that he is HIV+.  On TV with his family watching, who didn't know.... Strange

And the contestant from Cameroon made a fantastic, regal ad.  She(he?) - Bebe - is my favorite.

This showed really bugged me for about 20 minutes of the first episode.  Then I noticed how serious these contestants really are and it became fascinating in all its drag weirdness. 

RuPaul is a good host. Got some good guests! Bob Mackie to judge costume design made from the Dollar Store - that was great.

Oh yeah, I DVR it every week.  I have always loved and followed RuPaul.  When I first came out drag actually bothered me, but now I just think it's gobs of entertainment.  Wind 'em up and watch 'em go. ;)

This week I had had a lifetime supply of Shannel (however she spells it, I know it'd different than the designer)  Oy vey!

Oh, I also might hump Santiago. ;)

 It's part of the Cable-TVs lineup called LOGO, ( it's an LGBT-Cable Channel) it is owned by CBS-TV and MTV-Networks, (Viacom) it's been on Cable-TV for the last 4 yrs. now, most of the programing is mostly for a Gay-womans point of view , it has very little to do with Gay-men, although it's  on-air-content has gotten a lot better in the past 4yrs. it's been on the air, so, I support LGBT-TV, it's a start, and, better than nothing at all.......

Hmmm, that may be part of the problem.  We have Dish Network instead of cable.  It appears that Dish still doesn't carry Logo.  I know there was talk a few years ago that they were going to be carrying it.  Maybe they're still 'in negotiations', as Dish calls it.  ::)

I've seen episodes replayed on Bravo for those that don't get Logo.  All the episodes are available online, as well, on Logo's Web site.

I think that's just for the local ABC affiliates.  We don't get any local channels through Dish, anyway.  I kept Time Warner for Road Runner (internet) and locals, but the picture on Dish is SO much better than Time Warner's cable ever has been.  I'll look for them on Bravo and online.

My cable is off at the moment but I caught the first episode. I love Ru, she is such a diva. When she first came out in a suit I didn't even know who the hell she was. I thought she was a black Tim Gunn or something. I saw the firsr episode on VH-1, didn't know they showed it on Bravo but no surprise there.

Hey, David, I am considering getting Dish, any suggestions?

I like Dish overall.  You can get really good specials as a new subscriber (most companies do that, though).  If you have 2 TV's you want to hook up, they make it very easy with a dual tuner box.  We have a DVR; record one show while watching another, record on one tuner (one room) and replay it in another, etc.  We've had very little trouble with weather interfering with the signal.  We didn't have to pay for the boxes; they're 'free' as long as we have service.

I have been watching it on line. it is fun to watch, I have never done drag, but in my early 20s i love to hang out with drag queens.  This show is a great show, it is the only reality show i have ever watched.  Rupaul is the bomb, i like her and the how the show is put together.  So lets lipsink for out lives.  D

As a matter of fact, I hadn't seen the show until I was at the gym one day.

I was on the exercise cycle that has a TV and was flipping through the channels when I came across Ru Paul and his show on VH1.

That was the fastest 30 minutes of cardiac exercise I think I had ever done. You have to wear earplugs or no sound, so I was laughing and getting a real kick out the show nobody else in the room could hear.

I probably looked like an idiot, but I enjoyed it.  ;D

I look for it now whenever I go to the gym.

HUGS,

Everyone loves a good Drag-Queen when they see one, it's so campy & funny, as long as they don't take it to seriously and have fun with it, besides, it's only an Man in a Dress, w/ Makeup & Heels on  ;D

I like watching it sometimes. The best 3 are left now... Nina Flowers, Rebecca Glasscock and Bebe. It gets kinda funny at times.

However, the one show that I wish Logo would bring back on the air is Noah's Arc. Now... *THAT* was a good show! And "Wade" (played by Jensen Atwood) is PHYNE as hell!!!  WOOF!! I would absolutely LOVe to meet and go on a date with him!! <getting all dreamy-eyed> LOL!

If not mistaken these drag queens are career girls....they are not just in it for the "fun".  Its their livelyhood...like RuPaul.

Bear, yes I agree with you, that was part of my original post. The boys/girls take it all very seriously. Yeah its fun for us but its also quite a serious look into such unusual lives, careers, and gender identities.

I had a friend in Florida, who has since passed, that was a drag queen. She passed her queenliness on to me. I love how drag queen do their make up and are so into detail. Wishes I had one to do my make up and make me look fierce..*snaps fingers*....

Miss Bebe Zaharra Benet is reigning queen!

I really enjoyed the show after the finale 'RuPaul's Drag Race: Reunited!'. I had never seen nor heard Ru talk so passionately to the point of sounding upset! I loved it!

Yes...I believe "she" was a fairly young person, up and coming drag star.

I love it the way RuPaul says lip sync "for your LIFE." I also loved her outburst in the reunion episode, where she shut those queens up with that speech about "going through the fire" and then owning it, etc.

The one who did the juggling and showed off her ass (Sharon? Shannon?) is sooooo insecure, it's kind of painful to watch.

Also, Santino is HOT.

ok, I've watched through episode 3 tonite while I cleaned off my computer desk.  The show is pretty entertaining.

But I get totally distracted and have to pause EVERYTIME the Pit Crew comes on!! Holy shit, they're hot, and Ru certainly knows how to dress her men!

That is Shannel, as in Chanel obviously.  I thought the judges were too kind to her - they should have told her she is too full of herself each time they had to listen to her long weird speeches about how fabulous she is.  The result is she learned nothing from participating.  Insufferable.

Just 5 contestants left before the finale. Sad to see Pandora go. She was really fun to watch. Preferred season One much more. The contestants in Season One had more class, talent and friendship.  :)
Season Two seems more catty-meow. :o

Hope to see go: Tyra  >:(
Probably would win: Raven  ???

I guess it is a reality show, I never really thought about that. Its so contained in its framing - just the competition basically, i dont see it really as a reality show.  More like a weird game show.

I dont watch reality TV either.

All "Reality" television is so far removed from actual reality that I think the term is a complete misnomer.  There's no overarching game tying together the reality of me and my friends anyway.

When Rupaul's DR came on last season, I didn't feel it would be something I'd catch given its theme. When it went on rerun on Logo, I thought, catch it, why not, out of curiosity. I was taken by surprised how much I enjoyed the creativity and novelty of the show. It's like a mix mash of ANTM and Project Runway and then some. And of cos I love Rupaul.  :-*

The other reality show I truly love is Amazing Race. I like "visiting" the world with the contestants and look forward to visiting some of the countries with my love partner one day soon enough before this crazy world self destruct. Not too sure but dun recall if the show travelled to Brazil before in any of their seasons. Would love to visit Rio and Sao Paulo.  ;D

agreed.  last season's girls were classier in a way.  the girls this season are way more bitchy (esp. Raven).  And Tyra is as dumb as a stone. I have to say I  was upset when Tatiana (so pretty) was booted off although she really did do a poor job lipsyncing.  RuPaul always smiles and has lots of "Charisma Uniqueness Nerve and Talent" (lets make that into an acronym...!)
