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.

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 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 :lol:

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!

Sending her instead of Kennedy to the final 3 was definitely a choice...

I reckon it's because Kennedy showed some bitchiness so the youthful stans would have trolled the final if she went through over Pearl

I see :lol: Misread your post the first time.

I did like Pearl a lot as well. Could see why people didn't like her, not the most exciting queen out there, but I was still stanning for her. Who could every forget "flazeda".

Pearl was good, but she wasn't really top three material over Kennedy. Although there's something to be said about kicking into gear at the right time in the competition.

8 Emmy nominations. I've no idea about the Emmy's and if that's really substantial or not but I'm proud nonetheless :D

I went to see the Klub Kids Queen of Comedy show yesterday and it was a-ma-zing! It featured Bianca, Katya, Alyssa, Charlie Hides and non-Drag Race queens Lady Bunny and Jacky Beat and they put on a brilliant now. Although I have to say, I was slightly disappointed by Katya. Love her, but was expecting so much more from her. Charlie Hides, on the other hand, surprised me a lot. Never liked her on the show, but hilarious on stage. And oh Bianca <33 F***ing legend.

Sooooo jealous! I'm disappointed to hear that Katya was not that funny :(

Anyway, it's a pity we don't have any queens coming to Italy, except Gia Gunn and Charlie Hides who are coming here in October (but it's still a three hours ride from my place, so I dunno) :x I might consider doing a trip to the UK to see some of them live
