RuPaul's Drag Race *SPOILERS*

he/him
I’ve seen tea on Reddit that it’s because of favouritism from production to others, mainly Jimbo.

I can’t imagine they would explicitly state this on screen, particularly as Jimbo seems to be one of the front runners, but you never know.

Considering some of the tea for this season is all over the place, I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t true, or at least, it’s got some degree of truth to it but it’s not the whole story.
There's also talk that it's for mental health reasons.
 
Believe it or not, but it would appear that S16 begins filming this week. Here are all of the names currently in the mix:
Paragraph 1's contestants are looking likely, paragraph 2's are possible, and paragraph 3 is unlikely but potentially. Some listed here won't be on - we should know within a few days who's properly made the cut.

This show loves a Scarlet(t)

Dd they really went from the first Miami queen last season to 4 in one and no Cali girls?

And there’s already an update! Aaliyah, Kahtya, and Natalia have been bumped from the list, leaving a pretty likely set of 16.

Will update the original shortly.
 
Another Missouri queen is a pleasant surprise! I don't know much about Q but hoping she joins the iconic rolodex with Mo Heart/Widow/Crystal/Daya.
 
Kasha now going a week earlier and out third breaks my heart. She's done really well and nothing to show for it. I know her Ball will be a total mess, so she's going to get no positive critique from her time on the show. Ugh.
 
I really like Kasha but I think her presence this season has more so amplified that her potential really was with the Season 7 cast on a mainline season. I don't think it's particularly egregious for her to be going now.

She could easily have been High/High in the first two challenges though which would entirely change the dynamic - but the decision was clearly made for Jaymes to occupy the primary camp queen slot and that leaves no room for Kasha (or indeed Darienne really) and both are quickly surplus to requirements for the shows storytelling plans. Plus you have Jimbo who stomps the comedy stuff too.

That's ultimately just a bit of bad luck, as they could have made a decision to turn Darienne/Kasha tension into a several episode arch (one doing better than the other causing jealousy, them 'falling out' under the pressure, make them opposing team captains, one potentially failing to save the other by losing the lip sync, them both in the bottom etc...). Or just allowed either to have a redemption storyline.

But that's not the role they've been cast to play. It sucks for them not to get their flowers, but it is what it is. And to be honest as you say, the next challenge is a Ball, who else is going to be in the bottom if not those two among this cast?

MKD however feels a good choice for a future vs TW series casting, based on how she's done here and how people seem to have responded to her.
 
New spoilers:

Episode 3: Jessica Wild win / Kashsa out
Episode 4: Jimbo win (Darienne likely out)
Episode 5: Jimbo win (Heidi likely quits here)
Episode 6: Lala win (Kahanna out)

And Kandy has at least one win at the back end of the season (either Ep 8 or 9)

The final 3/4 (still unclear what it is) is cut to a Top 2, and Jimbo is one of the finalists--with 4 likely wins.

Does this mean the tea of Jaymes winning an episode was wrong? :(
 
They/them, he/him
I'm no Kandy fan. At all. But she didn't do that. She was (as much as is possible for her) trying to be discreet and quietly reassure Heidi that she had more to give. It seemed quite genuine to me.
It was the “you better not leave me here” that really grated on me.
 
Have we heard about the new tea? No comeback challenge, Jaymes 6th, Lala 5th, Alexis 4th, Jessica Top 3, Jimbo and Kandy Top 2.

Does this mean the finale is just two queens Jimbo and Kandy? Why?? How are they going to fill an hour with the two of them? Even four is pushing it.
