        Right on the money. Apparently, AS3 starts filming right after S10.

          agree so much, i dont get trixie mattel at all
          shangela 100% needs to come back for an as3. she brings drama. hardly anyone post season 6 brought drama.

            After watching AS2 and re-watching S5, I've changed my view! I still think it felt really scripted (it should have been Alyssa vs. Detox instead of the infamous Alyssa vs. Coco lip-sync battle, but of course that wouldn't have provided as much drama and it was inevitable these 2 queens had to face off at some point), and I will forever always think Jinkx Monsoon is the worst ever contestant.

            But it's a really fun series overall! Alyssa, Detox, Alaska, Roxxxy, Coco (basically the AS2 queens) are some of the most memorable contestants ever! The first half of the series is really bogged down by filler queens, such as Honey Mahogany and Vivienne Panay, but once it's down to the final 6, it's a 5* series!

            And some of the challenges are better than I remember too.

                Including Season 9 (but still can't rank S1), I have:

                1. All Stars 2
                2. Season 3
                3. Season 4
                4. Season 2
                5. Season 5
                6. Season 6
                7. Season 8
                8. All Stars 1
                9. Season 9
                10. Season 7

                Season 9 was fine, but just didn't have enough drama and had some whack challenges (didn't like 9021H0 or Kardashian musical). But the worst thing has to be the reintroduction of Cynthia "Cucu" Fontaine! Really pointless. The finale was one of the best though!

                Season 7 wasn't bad either, but a lot of the queens weren't that memorable. The scripting was too obvious too, such as Pearl (undeservedly) winning the challenge in the same episode she argued with Ru, or the 'how's your head?' comments with Miss Fame. Didn't really like the winner either. But it gave us the best Snatch Game.

                All Stars 1 was cute, but didn't really feel like a season of Drag Race.

                Season 8 went really quickly, but Bob made that series quality. I don't get all the love for Naomi Smalls in our survivor though, she was so weak up until the book challenge.

                Season 6 had the fewest filler queens I think, which is why I'm surprised that Bianca is the only remaining queen in our survivor. Adore, Courtney, Ben De La Creme, Gia, Milk, Vivacious, Laganja and Trinity are some of the most memorable queens post Season 5. I'm surprised only Adore was selected for AS2. I guess they'll be more in AS3.

                  My ranking would be something like:

                  1. AS2
                  2. S5
                  3. S6
                  4. S3
                  5. S2
                  6. S4
                  7. S1 (severely underrated IMO, it had five of the best queens ever, namely Bebe, Nina Flowers, Shannel, Ongina and Tammie Brown)
                  8. S9
                  9. S7
                  10. AS1 (a useless stunt to give Chad Michaels a crown)
                  11. S8 (the pits)

                      Season 8 has had the best final three for me, when all my favourites got into the final and actually loved all three queens. Glad that Bob won in the end, but Kim Chi and Naomi were so good as well.

                        Yeah, season 8 was a good final 3. Although I don't get the love for Naomi Smalls. She was nothing special

                          Naomi wasn't the most exciting contestant, but I really liked her personality. And she has to be one of the best looking queens ever featured on the show, both in and out of drag.

                            I'm trying to convince my friend to watch this but she's very stubborn. I sent her the Roxxxy vs. Alyssa lip sync to try persuade her. Any other clips to convert her y'all recommend?

                              The Alyssa VS Tatianna lip sync is pretty legendary!!!

                              Who are your favourite queens Biscuits? you seem to hate everyone I love!

                                    There are queens whom I don't dislike, but think are either overrated or have been ruined by youthful stans

                                    Bianca Del Rio
                                    Valentina
                                    Tatianna
                                    Adore Delano
                                    Sasha Velour
                                    Katya

                                    And I just plain hate Jinkx Monsoon

                                      Tatianna and Katya are in my top 10 queens, i'll be very interested to see how Valentina goes in AS3 as let's be honest, she's 100% going to be in it.

                                      I like Jinkx Monsoon, not one of my favourite, but a very talented queen.

                                      My top 10 Queens are,

                                      Alyssa Edwards
                                      Tatianna
                                      Katya
                                      Alaska
                                      Detox
                                      Violet Chachki
                                      Naomi Smalls
                                      Adore Delano
                                      Latrice Royale
                                      Raven

                                          So, I finally got to watch season one a.k.a. "The Lost Season".

                                          Aside from the camera (which is truly, absolutely awful for 2009 standards), it's a pretty decent season. In fact, if it had been shot in SD or HD, it probably would have been somewhere in the middle of a best-to-worst season countdown. The only other major downside of the season is how short it is, there are hardly any contestants. Watching season one is worth it alone so you can watch the Reunion, which is crazy.

                                          SPOILERS (I GUESS) IN CASE ANYONE DECIDES TO WATCH IT...

                                          That being all being said, Bebe was a totally deserving winner and Nina Flowers is an absolute sweetheart. Ongina is also great, her reveal on the main stage about her HIV was truly a touching moment. There was also a healthy dose of drama, with the villain Rebecca Glasscock, Akashia falling over on the runway, Shannel's attitude and her headpiece falling off etc.

                                            This is what my top 10 would probably look like- it's difficult though.

                                            Bianca Del Rio
                                            Bob The Drag Queen
                                            Milk
                                            Kim Chi

                                                I'm not really sure how Milk could be in anyone's top ten, I can't remember anything she did in her season, other than looking nice as boy Milk... and even then, it's hardly as if she was boy Pearl level of pretty.

                                                Although I'm here for giving her another chance in AS3, because she didn't really get time to shine.

                                                    She served some pretty odd looks








                                                    But yeah, I think her main reason for being popular is...

                                                        I'm not really sure how Milk could be in anyone's top ten, I can't remember anything she did in her season, other than looking nice as boy Milk... and even then, it's hardly as if she was boy Pearl level of pretty.

                                                        Although I'm here for giving her another chance in AS3, because she didn't really get time to shine.
                                                        I think she served some of the most interesting/odd looks in the show's history and she was actually far being 'the pretty one' (he looks very good out of drag though). And besides that, I've been following Milk on the social media channels after the show and she comes accross as a really cool, levelheaded, inspiring person so that's why Milk is so high up in my ranking. Can totally understand why it would surprise people though

                                                          We definitely weren't claiming the former

                                                            Milk is just like Pearl to me, nice/good looks but that's about it. I find them a bit mediocre.

                                                              I didn't mind Pearl but not sure she should have been in the final. Definitely one of the hottest guys on the show!
