My top 10 Drag Race Queens

So tomorrow is the season premier of what is possibly the greatest show ever made, RuPaul’s Drag Race. I only discovered this incredible reality show about three months ago but I am already on my second viewing of the first six seasons. I am not sure what it is about watching a group of fieeeeeeeeerce drag queens compete against each other that is so fabulous but it just is and it’s reminded me that I really kind of wish that I could be a drag queen – curse actually being born as a woman instead of getting to be a man dressed as a woman. Anyway not all queens are created equal and these are my most loved from the six seasons so far.

Yara Sofia

Yara Sofia
Season: 3
Placed: 4th
This little Puerto Rican pocket rocket is as mad as a bag of frogs and as fishy as well a kettle of fish!
Catchphrase: Echa pa’lante!

Sharon NeedlesSharon Needles
Season: 4
Placed: Won
Sharon took flack from some of the other girls for being too, weird and out there but I loved her unique take on drag.
Catchphrase: When in doubt, freak ’em out.
“I have ‘dignity’ looks and ‘paycheck’ looks. Dignity is when I will not bend, for anyone. I don’t care if I make a dollar, I’m doin what I’m doin. Then there’s times the electric’s about to shut off so I dress up like Lady GaGa.”

Shangela

Shangela Laquifa Wadley
Season: 2/3
Placed: Last (season 2), 6th (season 3)
Shangela crashed and burned in season 2 but she came back and proved everyone wrong in season 3.
Catchphrase: Halleloo!
“They attacked me with knives. I don’t attack with knives. I attack with strategy.”

Raven

Raven
Season: 2
Placed: Second
Raven is as cool as a cucumber and takes no shit from anybody.
“I think I can sell ice to an Eskimo, but, not dressed as a fucking chicken.”

Manila Luzon

Manila Luzon
Season: 3
Placed: Second
I  loved Manila’s zany comedy and her willingness to push the envelope.
Catchphrase: WERK!
“Oh, I’m so glad you covered up your face.”

Latrice Royale

Latrice Royale
Season: 4
Placed: 4th
This ex-con is the last person you’d ever imagine would look good in a dress but damn she was fierce!
Catchphrase: Eat it!
“She is large and in charge, chunky, yet funky. Bold and Beautiful baby.”

Jujubee

Jujubee
Season: 2
Placed: 3rd
Jujubee was both fierce and hilarious and she always looked gorgeous.
Catchphrase: Do you catch my drift?
“Tyra, she believes she’s Beyonce. And she doesn’t want to hurt Beyonce’s feelings because somehow Beyonce pays her bills.”

Jinkx Monsoon

Jinkx Monsoon
Season: 5
Placed: Won
Jinkx was an underdog throughout but her incredible comic timing made her a force to be reckoned with and she was so damn charming.
Catchphrase: Water off a duck’s back.
“I tried to tease it but I just pissed it off”

Bianca Del Rio

Bianca Del Rio
Season: 6
Placed: Won
Bianca’s lightning quick wit meant she had the best oneliners but she also proved regularly that she had a heart of gold.
Catchphrase: Baloney!
“Calm Down, Beyonce!

Adore_Delano_fave

Adore Delano
Season: 6
Placed: 2nd
Adore was just so incredibly cute and dumb and vulnerable. I just wanted to hug her all the time.
Catchphrase: Party!
“I’m from Azusa. I’ll stab a bitch.”

  1. I haven’t watched season 6 yet, but I already knew Bianca and Adore were the top 2, so that’s ok.
    I LOOOOVE Sharon Needles, she is the major bomb!! I was rooting for her the whole time. I would have literally punched my tv if freaking Phi Phi won season 4. Ugh.
    All the other are fabu, except for Manila. Gorgeous, yes, and occasionally funny, but just really abrasive. The whole Heathers thing just made me sick. What the hell did they think this was, high school??
    And I absolutely adored Jinkx. Gorgeous, funny, perfect. I don’t know why the judges gave her such a hard time some episodes. I just wanted to slap them!

      Sorry!! I totally should have warned about spoilers.

      I’m with you on Phi Phi. She was such a twat!

      I think it was Manila lip synching to MacArthur Park that inspired my love for her and I just never looked back. I agree that the Heathers/Boogers thing was awful.

      Look out for next week… I’m doing my top 10 feuds…

  2. Oh, and btw, there is such a thing as a bio-queen, women who like to dress like drag queens 🙂

    1. Abbi

      I need to find out where they hang out! To be honest most of the reason I admire them is because I could never pull off that kind of make-up. I can barely apply eyeliner.

      1. I’m taking a makeup course, and as soon as I’m done, I’ll do my best bio-queen look and post it for ya! hehe 🙂

        1. Abbi

          I am dying to see that!

  3. Flawless post. Bianca Del Rio and Latriiiiiiice Royale will always be my equal favourites!

    1. Abbi

      Thank-you! Latrice is just a beautiful human being. She should be on TV 24 hours a day.

      1. I would totally watch that!

  4. LOL Abbi I loved this! Very entertaining. I have never seen the show, but I am usually super weary of reality TV. Looks like you had a blast though! Some of those gifs are priceless.

  5. YESSS I love Jinx and her catchphrase. My fave was when she did that Edie from Gray Gardens impression. Also Alaska, Milk and Adore. You will have to tell me what you think when you see Violet Chachki. She’s so pretty!

    1. Abbi

      I loved when Jinkx did the lip synch for her life in the dia de los muertos costume. Blew me away. Love Alaska. She was so funny doing Red… for Filth. It was so hard to narrow it to 10 in fact. I could have done 20. I will make sure to look out for Violet Chachki when we finally get season 7.

      1. Yes I love how Alaska says hiieee lol. They are all so good. You will like her she can be a major b, but her looks are beautiful.
