3 Thoughts About Season 9 of RPDR (So Far)

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9


The reigning queen of our hearts made her first appearance on RPDR in the premiere episode (and we all hope it won’t be her last). It was nice to see a superstar guest judge actually in the workroom with the queens and sharing stories/tips. Especially since it’s Gaga, who has shown the world that drag has a place in the public eye.

Speaking of Gaga…The Gaga fashion challenge had the Mutineer & I gagging. I mean…did you see Nina Bonina Brown?



Okay, I love RPDR. I’ve seen every season at least twice, (or 4, 5, 6 times) and I can name almost every RPDR alumnus…but…call me traditional, but the new format for the show is very off putting. I mean, for the past several seasons, there’s a mini challenge, a maxi challenge, and then the runway. That’s the formula. Deleting the mini challenge throws me off my RPDR groove, and it seems to make each episode drag out (see what I did there?)

Also, without the mini challenges…how will the queens go to the library and read?


Okay, I know it’s early in the season, but really, I picked my fav before the queens ever entered the workroom. Valentina is a SoCal native, and yeah, forgive me for picking my homegirl. Also, she’s phenomenonally good at makeup and has a good eye for fashion. Can we just stop and appreciate this look though?

She’s just so darn adorable with her blushing bride-esque smile and her little statuette of Lady of Guadalupe and her confessional beret. HER BERET.  (Where can I get one of those?) I hope Valentina makes it far this season.

Exiting the room purse first,
