    RANK THE QUEENS

    So what are people thinking, based on the first episode (and the second if you've seen it) and Untucked?

    Right now, my ideal top four (in no particular order) is:

    Katya (I just love the character and I suspect she'll be given even more chance to shine in future challenges. Having watched her YouTube performances, I have high hopes)
    Ginger (another I suspected i'd hate based entirely on the name, but she's absolutely hysterical. I'm not living for the fashion but i'm very glad she's there and bringing the laughs)
    Pearl (I have done a COMPLETE turnaround on Pearl after the first episode and "Untucked" ... I knew the fashion would be good, but her dry manner and humour is far from what I expected)
    Max (Cheating a little here, but after having watched the Max Collective video to Iggy Azelea's "Beatdown" I am now ON BOARD. Needs a chance to shine on the show.)

    It would probably be in that order if pushed also.

    And in order, I think fifth, sixth, seventh etc would go like this:

    Violet Chachki (getting the bitch edit for sure but her fashion is entirely on point and she IS actually funny with her cattiness)
    Mrs Kasha Davis (without being too spoilery, I thought her performance in episode two is MASTERFUL. Giving me Terence Stamp in Priscilla realness)
    Jasmine Masters (utter trainwreck, but thus good entertainment value)
    Trixie Mattel - Feels harsh to have her so low, I LOVED one of her runway looks on the first episode. I think it was Fall?
    Miss Fame (absolutely love the fashion, but I don't see how this bitch can last with all of the other talents required)
    Kennedy Davenport (I know she is an immense performer, I just don't get much from her yet. Although I liked "No. Neeeext." when Sasha Belle made her entrance)
    Jaidynn Diore Fierce (a fucking walking drag lingo machine with no decipherable character beyond... I know the others borrow from elsewhere but at least display some originality in looking further than Ru herself)
    Kandy Ho (RUDE and utterly blah)
    Sasha Belle (ropey as all hell... as I said, Adore Delano gone wrong)

    1. Ginger - funny and a good performer
    2. Pearl - a mixture of her being cute as a boy and her attitude in general where she seems to be rather nice
    3. Katya - disappointing second challenge but I hope she pulls through in the coming weeks
    4. Trixie
    5. Mrs Kasha Davis
    6. Violet - she's rubbing me the wrong way
    7. Jasmine
    8. Kennedy
    9. Tempest
    10. Max - maybe there's something I'm missing, I would like her more if she dropped the accent
    11. Jayden - I don't get her
    12. Miss Fame - I'm shocked she considers herself a beauty queen, she looks a bit edgy in drag but that's about it. No other discernible talent
    13. Kandi Ho
    14. Sasha Bell

    Kasha Davis is growing on me as is Max. Violet is annoying, unless she somehow gets a personality transplant I don't see her winning.

    I only really care about Pearl, and Miss Fame due to her fan favourite personality. I'm kind of here for Katya, but will I give a shit after the show PROBS NOT.

    I was into Trixie, and she was eliminated too soon, but people need to wise up - she IS NOT COMING BACK.

    Take Pearl and Fame out i would struggle to get excited about the rest. Imagine being a Max stan, it would be like getting excited about a glass of water, tap water. I don't really like Jinkx at all for example, nut at least she was engaging.

    Katya is my standout at the moment. I don't think she's getting enough credit.

    I also don't think Violet gets enough credit for her LOOKS which are consistently flawless.

    same. the two i don't like are minj and laguardia.

    katya seems to be the best well rounded queen but there's something missing. i want to see violet and pearl and miss fame actually do something brilliant in terms of a performance.

    I don't! She's just my least favourite. Not to be all non-cobmittal as usual, but I really have enjoyed all of the remaining queens to various degrees :D

    I love her!

    I find her spaced-out, Cleveland from Family Guy shadiness so entertaining.

    "But...SHE'S BEAUTIFUL!"

    "She's very...like... VALLEY...but you really go to... *randomly changes accents*... COMPTON"

    "THE CROWS ATE HER BITCH"

    "You died from FIRST AID?"

    I have only watched the first two episodes of Untucked, so based on what's shown on the main show, Kennedy is just bland.

    Oh she's so much better on Untucked (aside from episode 3 where she comes off really badly).

    TBH I quite like ALL of them, what's interesting this season is that any of the queens could end up in the top 3. It got off to a rocky start but I am enjoying this season now, despite the lack of a STAR.

    Definitely! Katya and Ginger are the most 'personality friendly' but are not head and shoulders above anyone in the way at Alaska, Courtney or Bianca were in previous seasons.

    Bitch, I don't RATE HER, but she was basically a SHOE-IN for the TOP 3 with her look, runway and singing chops.
