    This is basically a series-long parody of America's Next Top Model :D

    Have we seen Ep2??

    crying as a shoddy drag queen lip-syncs to her "hit single" We Break The Dawn while the other contestant refuses to mime to it on the grounds that s/he HATES IT
    was QUITE SOMETHING :D

    This show is utterly WONDERFUL and the future of reality TV.

    Highlight has to be Tammie Brown, it's quite saddening she left, but what a way to go! She was special from the off, the wonderful spastic face she pulled whilst writhing around on the car in the first episode was divine.

    I did also find it deliciously ironic that in the week that the contestants are encouraged to be part of a girlband whilst "outshining the rest" (ie doing a Beyonce), that they rolled out "expert" Michelle Williams :D
    I refuse to believe she was really driven to tears by the lip-synching of the bitchy one, we all know what she was balling at!

    I have seen the whole run and thought it was GREAT, funny, at times touching, bitchy and everything. The one downside of it is I fucking HATE Santino Rice, have done since Project Runway 2.

    Them calling out Jade on her poor tucking ability ('I've never seen such a beautiful queen with such a big cock') in Episode 3 made me laugh out loud.

    There is a second series next year.

    I did enjoy the "...they can't take away MY DIGNITEEEEEEE..."
    And off comes the wig made of 99p rubber snakes.

    You just know Lady GaGa will watching avidly for her next source of inspiration.

    YAY

    I think i would like Shanelle, if he wasn't such a fucking dickhead. His 'Greatest Love Of All' performance was brilliant though. Proper gave it some.

    I love the fact that Shanelle is obviously trying to hide the fact he's balding, badly...

    Nina Flowers and Bebe Zahara Benet are the bestest, though I have a soft spot for Ongina as well...

    Having just watched this weeks episode, i really warmed towards Ongina. I still think Ongina looks like a little boy wearing his mothers frock though.

    Bebe has to win. BEAUTIFUL.

    I think part of the charm is that Ongina looks like a little boy putting on his mom's outfits... But I like Nina bestest I think, possibly cause I'd consider a bit of ki-ki with him as a man... :shy:

    Nina Flowers and Bebe are AMAZING. I particularly enjoy the extreme, androgynous aspect of Nina's Drag.

    By the looks of it there's a couple of fat ones, maybe this is the fat cycle.

    Question for those people who watch this and Top Model, is Raja/Sutan the same Sutan who's often a featured makeup artist on Top Model, I SWEAR it is.

    Yeah he is, i think it's unfair because he has a big advantage, everyone knows him and well compared to the other "suburban" queens he can do so much more. He hasn't featured on ANTM for at least a couple of cycles know.

    Downloading episode 2 at the moment, but it's all about Untucked "Bitch i'm from Chicago" is an iconic line.
