BRAG says the DRAG: RuPaul’s new Show!

Who knows about makeup and looking fabulous more than us normal females?

Answer?

DRAG QUEENS

And who is the drag queen of all drag queens?

RuPaul

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”

  1. OMG I LOVE Ru Paul! and some of these guys are hot as guys and as women, it’s scary!

  2. Absolutely Gorgeous! I adore Gay men….I think they are simply fabulous. As for Drag Queens, they know Make-up like nobody! Not even women come close. 🙂

    • Agreed.. And BillyB confirmed what I used to say all along. Learn how the drags put on their makeup and apply just a fraction of the technique on yourself and you’ll look wow! You have to watch this one clip of BillyB on YouTube when he talks to a fellow makeup artist and blogger of his over skype. He talks about this Drag Show. and he is super awesome. Drag makeup rocks!

  3. FAB-U-LOUS DARRRRRRHLINGGG!!!
