      Nothing much about it in the UK press, their IG's have all stalled pretty much, they're still promoting local gigs in the back end of nowhere (and getting like 100 likes). Drag race is a cultural thing at this point and as I don't think it is 'a flop'. I was too harsh initially. It is what it is.

      • I think it will take some time to catch on in the UK. Those Season 1 UK Queens don't have massive followings on social media either. I understand that Drag Race had 10 years of exposure in the US BUT drag may be a different beast in the UK.

        • Tbh, this should be considered as a side project, holding this to the same standards of the US version is just impossible, also because this doesn't have a distribution as big and worldwide as the US show. I need to download the episodes illegally from my country, and I suppose it's like that for many others. However, we cannot expect the most casual fans that discovered the show through Netflix to tune in.

          • Renewed for series 2!! BBC and WOW said its been a huge hit!
            Love you like a love song!

            • I'm not sure why Aaliyahman is so intent on dragging the show down. Everyone I know who watches the US one is llvery much enjoying it. I even heard a bunch of gays on an upstairs balcony going on about it.

              Happy that it's been renewed.

              • I still have visions of Frock Destroyers performing that song in my mind. I can't get it off my head, for reals.

                Totally fell in love with Divina De Campo after that performance. I might be attracted to the way she performed. The whistle tone, the choreography she did and the runway lewk. She slayed my existence in that episode!

                  But apparently I was the one being bitter by saying it wasn’t. K

                  • Good news on it being renewed! I hopefully by season 3 we get more polished queens! Anyone think they will bring back Gothy or Scardey Cat? I'd be here for a Gothy return on season 2.

                    • I'm betting on Scaredy to be brought back, provided that they see sufficient improvement from her by the time casting for season 2 ends

                      • Rupauls drag race UK has certainly not flopped.
                        Baga Chipz done a few shows at London club Heaven and done a sold out show at Sapphires club in Blackpool last night.
                        More good news, if not already mentioned above, season 2 of Drag Race UK has been confirmed.
                        Rating are also in -
                        Series 1 has achieved 6.5 million BBC IPlayer requests for the first five episodes, equals 1.3M IPlayer requests per episode so far. ( source - digital spy UK ratings thread)

                        • Season 2 was inevitable in my eyes! A friend of a friendís boyfriend () does drag as Jacqui Swallows, and was apparently approached to do season 1 but turned it down to wait for season 2... so we shall see if she appears.

                          ďOH ITíS FILTH DEARĒ I wish there was a way The Vivienne could do Kim Woodburn in full.

                          Some great runways this week, The Vivienne looked like Siobhan Fahey in Shakespears Sister. I loved Blu and Cherylís looks too.

                          Cheryl trying to act fierce against Michelle, forget it

                          Canít believe Baga was safe, that was such rigga morris to get Cheryl in the bottom two. It was obvious Cheryl would do Call My Name and win, poor Blu had no chance. Aww that hug...

                          • I feel so bad for Blu.
                            Love you like a love song!

                              Agreed! That hug was so sweet!

                              All the girls did well this week. Blu and Baga should've been the bottom two, but Cheryl delivered the best lip-sync of the season so I'm happy with that.

                              The Vivienne, Divina, and Baga would make a fabulous top three, any of whom would be a worthy champion.

                                • I don't know how anyone could think Baga would be in the bottom? Her commercial was the funniest of them all, although her runway was a mess as usual. Also, was surprised they praised DDC's ad, sure it was polished, but it was boring.

                                  Also! Dafuq is Michelle on about, who cares if a fake commercial for a fake brand of bottled water by a campy drag queen has a socially conscious message

                                      You aren’t on drag race. Stop trying to interact with me like you are. It’s not it.

                                      And [MENTION=19875]JimJim[/MENTION], I’m not intent on ‘dragging it’. I’m debating it’s impact based on the low quality of the majority of the queens vs the over rated reactions of ppl in this thread. Like others have said, it’s a fun side project and hopefully season 2 will have a higher standard. I do wish it would have moved back to Channel 4 so they could actually get prizes.

                                      Yesterday’s show was one of the best. I love the advert challenges. DDP for me is the winner although Viv was true to my heart with the dumb scouse behaviour. I cannot forgive her not blending her neck blue or her hands. Blu’s look was my favourite by far. The makeup to the outfit. Flawless. Cheryl should have gone home easily, she literally has nothing to offer. It’s a shame the Riggamorris is alive in this version. Baga and Hole should have been bottom two. The reaction on twitter and Instagram is saying much the same.

                                      • I found Bagaís commercial to be a 6/10 by her standards. It offered nothing new, was a bit all over the place and recycled jokes. Cherylís wasnít great either but Cherylís look meant that, for me, she was overall stronger this week than Baga.

                                        I guess it was always written that Baga, Vivienne and DDC would be top 3.

                                        • Lovely episode! Finally a great lipsync! I need to find that mix of Call My Name.


                                          I loved Viv's look but I wish she painted her neck as well.

                                          Cheryl ate that performance! This will come down to DDC vs Viv.
