Starts tonight!


Just from what I’ve seen pre-season, my early rankings:

 

1. Tayce - she was top of my list to see on Drag Race UK :wub: So excited for her, stunning queen!

2. Asttina Mandella - gorgeous queen, seems really likeable and excited to see what she does

3. Tia Kofi - I really enjoyed her personality in the MTQ and looking forward to seeing what she brings

4. Bimini Bon Boulash - I’m really interested by her, I loved her MTQ and think she’ll be really fun to watch

5. A’Whora - a look queen for sure! She’s an interesting one to me, I’m looking forward to see how the young fashion queen trope does in the UK format

6. Lawrence Chaney - her MTQ had me dying :dead:

7. Cherry Valentine - that look! :omg: I liked her and think she’ll be good to watch

8. Veronica Green - I’ve seen her in things briefly before but didn’t know much about her otherwise. I enjoyed her MTQ and can see her doing well

9. Ginny Lemon - she’s either going to be iconic or annoying. :dead: leaning towards the first one but I’ll be interested to see how she does. I feel like she embodies a sense of British drag that we’ve never really seen on a show like this and I’m curious to see what she’s like

10. Joe Black - love the aesthetic, really fascinated to see what she brings

11. Sister Sister - I don’t really have any opinion on her yet, but I’m definitely interested to see her

12. Ellie Diamond - didn’t leave a huge impression on me yet but keeping an open mind!

So far, I really enjoy the cast & queens - the series looks promising!

 

  1. Lawrence Chaney: Easily my favourite - hilarious, delivered two strong look on the runway, and her performance in the mini-challenge cracked me up. And her heartfelt moment made me root for her.
  2. Astinna Mandella: Absolutely love her! From her entrance look to both of her runway look; she could be one to watch!
  3. Tayce: Loved her entrance look, and her runway looks. Unfortunately, I think she was outshined by Asttina when it came to the Naomi Campbell's looks - love that they didn't fight about it and instead turn the situation into an opportunity to talk about the lack of gay icons of color in the UK. 
  4. Ellie Diamond: A strong showing, and would love to see both her & Lawrence doing good in the competition for Scotland!
  5. Veronica Green: Thought she had a strong first episode, and a musical loving queen? Rooting for her to do well!
  6. Ginny Lemon: She's hilarious and I could see her do well in the long run. I was hoping to see her do Elton John & her hometown look was hilarious.
  7. A'Whora: I am curious how well she will do; wasn't too much of a fan of her first look - it was too messy & trying to do too much with it. Really enjoyed her hometown look - super polish and got exactly who it was, although could have been Peter Pan. And love her name origin - her in the confessional explaining it cracked me up. 
  8. Joe Black: I was rooting for her and still in shock... Both of her look were strong, imo.; Sure the hometown look was not on point but stil.. She was not the worst one, imo. 
  9. Cherry Valentine: Absolutely loved her MTQ and entrance look. However, you choose Freddie Mercury and you give us that look? Girl...  But her hometown look was super strong! 
  10. Bimini Bon Boulash: Was looking forward to her as I loved her MTQ, but she was the biggest disappointment especially with her hometown look. 
  11. Tia Kofi: Meh, she did not impress me at all. Her entrance look was mediocre - that hairy! I did not get her first look - I had no clue who it was until she started saying who it was honouring. And the second look was amateur compare to A'Whora. 
  12. Sister Sister: Meh, not that impressed. Both looks were mediocre and she should have in the Bottom 2.

Very interested in seeing how this season goes down, given the six-month break between the fourth and fifth episode. I almost feel like we won't really get an idea of who does well until the post-COVID episodes start.

 

Initial rankings based off the premiere only, since I haven't watched anything else:

01. Veronica Green

02. Ellie Diamond

03. Tayce

04. Astinna

05. Tia Kofi

06. Sister Sister - Yes she sucked in the premiere but I'm stanning for the drag name alone!

07. A'whora

08. Cherry Valentine

09. Bimini Bon Boulash

10. Joe Black

11. Lawrence Chaney

12. Ginny Lemon - Two seasons of Tammie Brown was more than enough.

 

Two queens named after the iconic TV show? Jackée Harry as a guest judge when?

I enjoyed the premiere! A good group of queens.

 

Rankings:

 

  1. Tayce - The Welsh Dragon look was probably my favorite out of all the runways. So excited for more of her.
  2. Asttina - Thrilled with her win, I really liked both of her looks and thought she sold them both great.
  3. Tia - I didn't really like either of the looks however, I enjoyed her otherwise and think she'll be fun to watch.
  4. Bimini - Really enjoying her. I actually liked the second look. From the surface I don't know if it looks executed well but I totally got the kind of character she was going with and I feel like I have more of an idea of who she is as a queen now.
  5. Lawrence - Hilarious, and did great with the first two looks. 
  6. Cherry - Seems like a sweetheart. I loved the Freddie choice, even though it's a predictable/easier look it totally made sense with the runway theme for someone to do Freddie and in the "I Want to Break Free" video.
  7. Veronica - I enjoyed her, although not a huge standout in the challenge (the Boy George look was really fun though and like with Cherry, a predictable choice but made great sense)
  8. Ginny - When she called out the girls for talking about Asttina and said they were all intimidated by her talent? She won me over there.
  9. Ellie - Second look was great! Not sure if I would have had her in the top personally, but a good start for her.
  10. A'Whora - Wasn't really a fan of her in this episode. A little underwhelmed by the looks and I'm guessing she's gonna be a villain of the season but I'm gonna have to wait a little while to see if I like it.
  11. Joe - I did feel the judges came down a little hard on her, however I wasn't a huge fan of either look. Saying that, I thought the Bowie look made sense and didn't deserve as heavy critiquing as it got.
  12. Sister - Still not really sure what to make of her, I didn't really like either of the looks and would have had her in the bottom.

I loved this! It really felt like they were leading up to some drama and I loved the direction it took.

 

(although would have been a perfect opportunity for someone to do Mel B!)
