Who knows about makeup and looking fabulous more than us normal females?
And who is the drag queen of all drag queens?
This post is all about…
This is a reality show all about finding America’s next drag superstar.
Contestants have to be 21 years and older.
Must be biological men, but sexual orientation is of no importance.
These queens a.k.a “racers” compete by walking on the runway, where the judges then pick the “queen from the crop”. The queens with the 2nd lowest and lowest scores are sent to the chopping block. They fight for survival by Lip Syncing for their lives! Head judge RuPaul then decides who should go back home.
The show premiered in 2009, Feb 2. Shows air on VH1 at 9pm Eastern time. Season 4 will broadcast in January 2012. (YAY, hope we get to see it one day)
“RuPaul the drag queen will have the final word in judging and eliminations, while RuPaul the man will offer guidance to contestants for each challenge”
What’s required from the contestants?
UNIQUENESS, CHARISMA, NERVE and TALENT
“Tell Tyra (Banks) that the Queen has returned, and while you’re at it have Heidie (Klum) clear the runway. I’m going to pump some ‘realness’ into reality. To be a winner of this show the contestants need to be a fashion designer, an American Idol, Top Model all rolled into one”

I love drag queen makeup! I think they’re brilliant at it! Have you seen the show? What are your thoughts on it? I must say, RuPaul has been bit quiet. Last I saw of him/her was on the VIVA GLAM M.A.C capaign.
