RuPaul's Drag Race (AS9)

Where is TS Madison? I want her on the judging panel more!

Episode this week was fine. The mean girl vibes from mistress and lux weren’t cute but it was fun to see at least some drama. Sasha stays being mother, as usual. High key forgot Robin Fierce was even there so not too gutted about their elimination. Ru looks good on the main stage though.

The less said about Aura winning this week’s challenge (how?!?!!) the better.

Them cutting that segment with the old gays out of the show & airing it in Untucked was such a mess. Of all the "real serious feel good" moments this show has attempted, I thought that conversation was pretty important. Especially, with everything going on right now. It would've been cool to have a wider audience see it.

I know I sound like a broken record but I can't @ how mangled this season is because of the edit. I think this is such a fun group of queens but the show is so hard to watch.

For real, when they just cut to the queens choosing the songs I was like... surely they didn't invite them just to appear 3 seconds wearing briefs? MTV really fucked the editors up with the decision to cut the episodes. Fuck Todrick, etc.

They're drag queens.

I don’t understand how this season is cutting so much to squeeze into 40 minute episodes when the first nine seasons of the show were also mostly 40mins but could still fit in mini challenges, full runways and judges deliberations?

From what I've read on Reddit, the season was filmed with 90 minute episodes in mind and they weren't told by MTV that the show was being cut down to 40 minutes for Toadrick's show until after filming had wrapped.

I just feel so bad for this cast because they're well and truly getting screwed over by MTV's horrible business decisons and it's all out of their hands.

I imagine they were filmed with the intention of being 40 minute episodes prior to Season 10, so they were able to fit as much as they needed to. In saying that, we did have a few truncated runways due to the shorter runtime, but they'd film with that in mind:


You can see the queens actually remaining on stage as the next does their walk rather than just rushing through the entirety of it like this current season.

It's comical how much Sasha was robbed this episode. She was just head and shoulders above.

And the Aura win? Total nonsense. Aura was middle of the pack.

I also think Robin won that lip sync. I just preferred her style over Jax, who I just can't enjoy.

Overall though, the critiques just didn't seem to match what had been edited. Like them saying Anetra forgot her words a lot - we didn't see that. Also, Ru really hates Marcia, right?

This week's episode should've been 30 mins ddd.

Untucked was IN-TENSE!

The show gaslighting me into an Aura Flopyari win? pretendstobeshocked.gif

As Bob would say she is the ultimate cringe queen.

Her performance during the heavy metal song was SO MOTHERFUCKING CRINGE. Gurl bye! I'm glad the next episode it seems like she's gonna flop so I hope she finally gets the BOOT!

Judging on lewk on the runway and challenge performance, the correct winner should've been...
