Carisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent…and Synergy? For those of you watching from home, RuPauls’s Drag Race All Stars just started this past monday on Logo. If you haven’t seen RuPauls Drag Race before, let me get you up to speed. It’s about 12 men that dress as women who hope to become the next big name in the art of Drag. What this “All Stars” edition is, is select performers from all four seasons of RuPauls Drag Race who didn’t win but came close to, or they were voted back by audience popularity.
The interesting (though it was a mistake) thing about how they are going about this competition is that the performers are competing in teams of two. Stupid idea, I know. It’s All Stars. Not best duo. I digress, what was interesting about RuPauls signature “criteria” to win is that they tacked on synergy.
Synergy is a great thing, it makes things more harmonious and is a great thing to have when you are working in a team. However, it has no place on this show. These girls will cut you with the razor blade they are hiding in there wigs. As Leshauwn Beyond ever so eloquently stated in Season 4 of RPDR, “This is not RuPaul’s best friend race!” All things said, Pandora Boxx and Mimi Imfirst were voted off this week. Who gets the can next? Watch and find out Monday at 9PM on Logo!
