I need to vent about this show, like I can predict every single storyline that will happen this season before it even happens because it's not about drag, it's about manufactured drama. Yeah I know there will be people that say it's always been about drama, but it feels like nothing is even about drag anymore.
Case in point this season: this stupid ass Aiden v Brita. Aiden should have gone in episode 4, I have never seen such shitty balls looks in my life. But they only kept her for her Brita rivalry and you KNEW they would end up lipsyncing together. Like I could write this script blind.
Also they were pushing Sherry HARD to the crown, giving her wins and highs that make no sense whatsoever. She shouldn't have won episode 3, Heidi should have, like I could not piece together a single reason why she won that week. Sherry shouldn't have been high in Snatch Game, she literally did a horrible insult to Katherine Hepburn but RuPaul fake laugh screamed at all her one note jokes. Also they have edited her 95% out of the show and they still can't find any screentime for like 3-4 of the contestants still? That's how much Sherry content they actually tried to shove at us. 100% she would have won if she wasn't a disgusting sexual predator.
Now we are left with the obvious winner of Gigi. I don't mind Gigi at all and wouldn't be mad if she won, but it's so obvious now that Sherry has (rightfully) been punted out the comp that Gigi will 100% win. They aren't even hiding it. >>79790
Tbf to Rock, she is self aware enought o lean into she looks like Trixie/Kim/etc a lot and jokes about it. I honestly don't mind her. I wish they would stop picking on queens with non standard looks to "change it up" though while every run of the mill queen never gets asked the same thing.
Also even in the crunchiness of the older seasons, those queen still had star power that outshines every queen these days. I'd say up to season 8 is where drag wasn't just about a look. Bob steamrolled that on personality alone and that's what I want to see, not how many rhinestones have been glued onto your designer outfit.
