Something isn't right about this season of Drag Race, and I think I put my finger on it. Upon, checking the cast list, I see everyone is under the age of 31. They are all in the crew of doing Drag since Drag Race's debut in 2009.
This has made me feel like everyone is from a very specific era of drag and honestly, they don't all seem confident in their art.
So if you could change anything about the casting process of Drag Race, what would you change?
In today's episode of Dragged Out, I had a beautiful discussion with Marta Mamma and The Macarena from Spain. They went into the many aspects of Drag Culture in Spain and how it varies from region to region. I started becoming more and more interested the more we chatted.
So I want to know is there a specific culture (pop culture, country culture, LGBT culture, sports culture, etc.) that you would love to learn more about?
When I sat down with Kylie Sonique Love, we dove into her time on season 2 of Drag Race and of course, All Stars 6. But when she told me that her win was spoiled by Reddit 3 hours before she was supposed to know, it got me thinking. Do you all like reading spoilers for shows or movies? Or do you need to go in without any knowledge whatsoever?
I mean for me, I have had to set a lock on my social media for important or pivotal tv show premieres, etc. so I don't get spoiled.
In this week's Exposed: Dragged Out, Drag Race Holland's Janey Jacké stops by to chat UK vs the World. And you know, I had to ask about that Pangina elimination moment. Such a pivotal moment of the show, but did it ruin the viewer experience? Should the most talented queens be voted off?
So, I need to know. Are we tired of the All Stars format?
After much thought, I think I want a combo. So each week you don't know what to expect. Maybe one week, the queens vote. Maybe, the next week Ru eliminates. I don't know but something needs to change.
What do you think?
Okay so this was nothing that was fully discussed on the pod this week, but I need to know thoughts and opinions.
I think we need more drag queens in every day reality shows. Like put a queen in a housewives franchise....maybe I'm crazy but I love a little drama...
And that is what got me thinking. Can we have like a modern day Real World mixed with Ultimate Girls Trip where we put 2-3 individuals from our favorite reality tv show franchises together on a vaca or in a house....Good or bad idea?
