    Well that was quite good. OMG the state of Jasmine, why is she wearing that? I don't want her to be the first boot but only a miracle can save her, what a HOT MESS. :(

    Now when is DR Thailand coming back? That's all I care about as soon as Jasmine Masters is out (that's next week).

    Most of the entrances were downgrades I thought... great bunch though.

    I know Monet is coming straight from series 10 and probably didn't have as much time or money as the others*, but I can't believe THAT was her entrance look!

    She didn't even bother to think up a witty catchphrase!

    *aside from Monique.

    Do they really not give the queens budget* to buy some nice things?

    Talk about tight

    I’m gonna spoiler this just in case

    i don’t know but it was not exciting. It’s just the same old, also the talent show was severely lacking. Monique was good, Gia and Manila were original but that’s about it. Nothing close to Bendela or Aja from last year.

    Monet was very disapointing, that sponge joke wasn’t good the first time and it’s the hundredth time now. Same with the fake split.

    I wish they had taken the year off.

    I wish these were in the episode since we only got a very brief glimpse and some of them are good

    It was definitely the weakest talent show of the three. I'm living for the personalities however. Gia IS forcing it a bit but it's great TV.

    Do we have to spoiler all discussion?

    I mean I get the thought obviously, but I'm inclined to think anyone who comes into this thread after it's broadcast but before watching it themselves deserve what they get.

    I noticed in the advert breaks on Comedy Central that they have all three previous All Star seasons available to download. I must watch AS1 and AS2 on the big screen in decent quality.

    Obviously I’m kind of here for this despite constantly complaining about it (:tongueout:) but my main question before bothering to watch it is: how much Gia is there in the first episode? You can add her to this year’s QoLs RIGHT NOW and I’ve already watched this twice :disco:

    I rather enjoyed that. Although I did feel poor Aja really should have chosen a dress she could actually have sat up in unsupported.

    And Gia gets a decent amount of screen time in the first episode.

    I enjoyed parts of this episode, though I was a bit disappointing over all. I was looking forward to a shake-up in the rules, but nah the first episode went exactly like AS2 and 3 except like you all said the talents weren't there. Right now I'd rank the variety shows from best to worse AS2 > AS3 > AS4.
    I quite liked Trinity and Gia. Manila and Naomi were good but only for their final reveals. Poor Jasmine was a stone cold mess. And that was another disappointment there.

    Oh this All Stars season is ALL about GIA being cuntastic :disco:

    I had a moment of thinking I might also be Team Valentina but fuck no. And what’s all this about Trinity now calling herself Trinity The Tuck? How dismally basic and boring (not that you’d expect anything better from HER :side-eye:)

    I enjoyed the first episode. It wasn't much of a talent-fest, but it looks like an utter cuntfest, which I'm here for.

    I'd have put Monet in the bottom two over Farrah personally.

    I felt for Farrah. He routine was no Roxxxy/Bendela as far as burlesque goes and I suspect she might have been in the bottom either way, but going out on a genuine accident would have been particularly crushing.

    Also Jasmine clearly wasn't that bothered.

    Talent show ranking

    Gia
    Monique
    Latrice
    Trinity
    Manilla
    Naomi
    Valentina
    Monet
    Farrah
    Jasmine

    As cunty as she is, Gia's performance was really stunning - and it would've been interesting to bolster her confidence in week one by putting her in top.

    Trinity's was a lot of fun but what was she actually doing beyond lip-syncing to a funny, yet fairly static, number? She was great in the Mariah lip sync though.

    Manilla's was fun, but kind of a long walk to the punchline. Same with Naomi, nothing particularly special before the reveal.

    Gia

    Latrice (she looked very out of breath)
    Trinity (not that funny)
    Manilla (clever but not exactly thrilling)

    Naomi
    Valentina
    Farrah (not good but not worthy of the bottom)

    Monét
    Jasmine

    That was a brilliant first episode.

    Mariah lip-synch YAAAAAAS :disco: and what a SONG.

    Aww Jasmine :( I love her no matter what, but MUST she be such a difficult cunt?!

    Manila was my FAAAVORITE performance. So clever and charming.

    But GIA was the real star of the show. Cunt x1000 and with talent to back it up!

    I'm already tired of Monet. She was overrated on her season and really I don't think we need to see her (so soon at least) on an AS season.

    Living for Manila & Latrice.

    I loved that first episode too. I was AMAZED Manila wasn't in the top two- that talent show was original, unique, funny, interesting and just RIGHT. Astonished it didn't get the props it really deserved. I'd forgotten how good she actually is as well- and how much I liked her. An ABSOLUTE JOY to have Latrice back, as I expected- her reading was FABULOUS, though Jasmine's "I preferred it when you were my bodyguard" was the proper LOL moment for me.

    So sad to see Jasmine go- I think she's GREAT entertainment and she seems to be SUCH a nice person this time around- clearly learnt from her first appearance. Farrah I did feel really sorry for, though- it would have been unfair for her to go, I think, given how she ended up there. The crying IS annoying, but I did feel for her this time- that must be fucking horrible to see something you've obviously prepared for properly go down the pan like that. Jasmine not bothering to prepare anything was by far the bigger crime, but I would have loved her to stay over Farrah for sheer entertainment value.

    Oh and the lipsync was GREAT- but in what world from that edit did Trinity win? I didn't understand that AT ALL.

    It already feels like it's going to be CUNTIER than AS3- Gia and Trinity will see to that, I'd have thought, and the likes of Latrice are not ones to hold back either. It's already shaping up to be a fun series!

    I thought it was an absolute disgrace that Manila wasn't top 2. It was such a unique idea, with perfect execution.

    I thought Trinity was better than Monique in a very strong lipsync. Sometimes less is more and what she was doing with her face was much better than what Monique was doing with her gymnastics.

    Jasmine came across beautifully. I'd have much rather Farrah went - she is such a vapid queen.

    Latrice IS a black Sheena. :D

    She probably in my top 3 Ru Paul alumni ever, so it's a major compliment!
