Rupaul - Queen Of Queens (2019)

On July 16, 2019, it was revealed via social media that the cast of this season would be announced at RuPaul's DragCon NYC 2019 with all 10 queens appearing at the convention. It was also confirmed via Instagram that the season will be available on the streaming platform WOW Presents Plus for viewers outside the UK.[3] There was no set promo theme, as the queens were told to just wear what they wanted to.

The article, written by a team of editors, split the drag queens into the top 20 most influential performers, followed by "The Tops," "The Upper Tier," "The Mid-Tier," and "The Bottoms." The rankings ran alongside portrait-style shots of many of the drag queens.

Multiple drag queens pointed out perceived inaccuracies and misrepresentations in the rankings, including Phi Phi O'Hara, a season 4 Drag Race contestant and a member of the "Mid-Tiers" ranking. O'Hara, who goes by his real name Jaremi Carey on Twitter, is listed as being from Chicago, but Carey tweeted that he isn't from Chicago and hasn't lived in the city for 8 years.

One of "The Tops," Monét X Change, tweeted that rankings should include the historic drag performers whose successors are "birthed on the backs of their pains." The only drag queens included in the rankings were those who have appeared on "Drag Race." Monét also noted that the article initially incorrectly identified Alaska Thunderfuck as a season 6 contestant.

Gone Too Soon But Not Forgotten It may seem like an inglorious end when you're cast off first in a reality competition. But, unlike most other reality shows, the first queens eliminated on RuPaul's Drag Race have made the most of their limited screen time. Most notably is Miss Vanjie, who turned a catchphrase into internet fame, and Shangela, who has co-starred with Lady Gaga (in A Star Is Born, duh), walked the Oscar red carpet, headlined the opening ceremony for L.A.'s new facility for homeless queer youth, and did a medley of Beyonce hits in front of Queen Bey herself at this month's GLAAD Awards. That's hard to live up to, but most first-cut queens are doing pretty damn fine themselves, performing and entertaining years after they sashayed away. Catch up with the girls:

This full-figured Ohio gal (the persona of Cincinnati-based Tony Cody) has not receded into the dragosphere. The happily-married Cody still performs often as Penny, often lip-synching for her life along other queens like Nina West, Jayda Mack, and Zsa Zsa Gabortion. Penny's social media is pretty impressive too, with over 33K followers on Twitter and over 13K on Instagram.

This season 9 queen won over fans, if not the judges. Struck by nerves, Jaymes Mansfield (a.k.a. James Wirth) struggled to get a word in alongside more Type A queens and was cut in episode two. Nevertheless, Jaymes's signature bombshell look and sweet puppeteering skills promises she won't want for gigs. Don't forget to follow Jaymes on Insta, where she uploads video and pics regularly.

Can you believe it's been a whole decade since RuPaul's Drag Race sashayed its way onto television and became a global phenomenon? In honor of the big anniversary, we're looking back, waaay back, at queens from that humble first season.

The show's inaugural run was relatively stripped-down compared to later seasons, featuring only nine queens who competed for a cash prize of $20,000; future seasons would offer a $100,000 grand prize. Before Michelle Visage became a staple in the franchise, the judge's panel consisted of RuPaul, Project Runway's Santino Rice and fashion writer Merle Ginsberg. Plus, it's the only season to not feature a "Snatch Game" main challenge.

You'll be hard-pressed to find Season 1 streaming anywhere online, though, which is why it's considered the "lost" season. But we've done our due diligence and uncovered the whereabouts of these lost queens. Here's what the Season 1 contestants are up to today.

RuPaul, the most famous drag queen on the planet, has done it all during his time as an entertainer. While most queens came and went from their time on Drag Race without doing much thereafter, certain queens have certainly learned how to turn their TV appearances into a mainstream career.

Updated on December 19th, 2021, by Hannah Saab: As the winners of RuPaul's Drag Race continue to make major names for themselves outside of the show, more queens are gaining notable recognition and success as artists, business owners, and hosts. These talented drag queens have proven that their stint on the show was just the beginning for them, with artists like Kim Chi and Manila Luzon rising to stardom long after their seasons aired.

Despite having a considerably shorter career than most of the other successful drag queens, it is hard to deny the fact that season 9 fan-favorite and Miss Congeniality Valentina has soared to new heights and reached mainstream success as of late. While appearing on Drag Race: All Stars 4 in 2019, the queen was also cast as Angel on the Fox production of Rent: Live! on TV, alongside heavy-hitters such as Vanessa Hudgens, Jordan Fisher, and Tinashe.

The fierce fashion queen has been named one of the "most powerful drag queens in America" by a panel of judges from New York magazine (according to Vulture). They have worked with brands like Moschino and Heretic Parfum, while somehow still finding the time to advance their music career with hit singles like "Mistress Violet."

Thorgy Thor With her colourful outfits, classical music background, and comedic timing, Thorgy is in a league of her own. Thorgy played her own game, staying true to herself in both her own season, and her run on All Stars (justice for Thorgy/Stevie Nicks). She took risks that were outside of the box, and for that, Thorgy remains one of our favourite camp queens.

Absolutely, there must be cheesecake! Everybody loves the Golden Girls and so many people love drag queens, and my sisters Kennedy Davenport, Pandora Box, Tempest DuJour and myself were asked to do this Golden Girls tribute. I saw the [kitchen] set yesterday and it is an exact replica of the kitchen. Whatever hair is left that I haven't shaved off my arms stood straight up.

Oh my gosh, well, you would not believe this morning, we have a pink carpet runway where all of the kings and queens will be showing off their looks. Myself and Mr. Davis, we love to match. So we look like we're headed out to Palm Springs for a round of golf. Matching circle skirt, housewife dress with a wonderful Hawaiian shirt look. So we match the entire weekend together.

Though Season 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race : All Stars is still in full swing, VH1 has announced its cast for Season 11 of the olympics of drag. While eager fans have been speculating about which queens will compete for the title of America's Next Drag Superstar for months, the network's official release and meet the queens is finally here.

She may go by Plastique, but this Vietnamese show-stopper is the real deal. With a Tyra Banks-approved smize and Alyssa Edwards as a drag mother, the other queens would be wise to steer clear of this one. 041b061a72
