Drag Race UK vs. The World (S2)

According to the future winner Mo(nique) the prize is a quarter of a million dollars
That was about Queens of the Universe. They don't get prize money with this show.

Monique just said she starts the season as Monique and changes her name during.

I get the idea of instead giving a shot to a US queen who hasn't competed yet but Juju's meer presence was one of an alarmingly small number of bright spots in All Stars 5 so I'm not mad at all

We're also about to see Jaida and Shea back after a similarly short time frame so I think its just par for the course at this point

The promo looks cheap as shit across the board which, alongside, the season length is really adding to the feeling of this being a very dry test-run but the cast is stacked. I could do without Baga and have no point of reference for Janey, having not watched Holland, but the rest all range from... well, Cheryl Hole to some of my favourite queens the show's ever produced so I'm remaining optimistic.
 
I like Jujubee but to be honest she was never really a contender for the crown (maybe in AS5) and it would not make a difference if she got cut at top 4 or 5 in her past seasons.

She is one of the most charismatic queens in the whole franchise, but she ALWAYS lacks the drive and it factor of a winner.
 
This is still a very strong cast to me? Seems stronger than most recent All Stars ones just for the fact that I don't see any obvious fillers. Even some of the queens one might argue have underperfomed originally are still captivating and fan favourites.

Yes but Baga.

It was painfully obvious they would bring her back the first chance they got so I somewhat made my peace with it. Hopefully it'll be a Eureka (All-Stars) situation where I don't find her completely unbearable, but in all likelihood it will be a Ginger (second All-Stars) where I still find her completely unbearable.
 
Yeah, not a fan of Baga either but she may surprise us. I’m quite happy for Jujubee to be back as I just love her, she’s so naturally funny and charismatic. I do feel like it’d maybe be nice for a non US queen to win this though. I also think for it to be called UK vs the World there should have been at least 4 UK queens, I mean 3 UK queens vs 2 US and 2 Canadian queen? I just think the whole thing would have been so much better if they’d waited another year and could include season 2 of each country.
 
Baga is the worst Queen of all franchises. She has just never looked good; at least Ginger, Eureka etc try.

I would say Eureka has actually given us great looks, especially on AS6. She really knows how to create a silhouette. Ginger, I've liked maybe one or two runways total from her 3 runs on Drag Race. Baga is not even worth mentioning.

It would be strange to call this show UK vs The World and not have a UK queen win, but I'm also fully expecting them to finally crown Jujubee.

If I remember correctly from reddit, Asttina was originally cast for this one, but sadly her mom passed close to the start of filming, it appears.

I actually think that she could've legit won AS5. I'm not saying Shea shouldn't have won or didn't deserve it, but Juju was consistently great throughout the entire season (and should've won Snatch Game).
