Wait! Don’t Tell Me!

Recently I became addicted to RuPaul’s Drag Race on LoGo. It’s a combination of Project Runway (they create their own fashions) and America’s Next Top Model (they¬†participate in photo shoots and runway scenes). However, the big catch is that the contestants are drag queens.

And it’s wonderful.

I mean, these gals have talent. Them bitches on Project Runway just have to design clothes. They don’t then model them. And America’s Next Top Model contestants just do modeling, but they don’t create their outfits. And on top of that RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants are having to create an¬†alternate persona…a whole new person (and personality). It’s quite the transformation.

The season finale (and there better be more seasons) was on Monday night. I haven’t watched it yet because I haven’t had a chance…but I can’t wait to see who won. I hope it’s Nina Flowers. I suspect it’s going to be a toss-up between her and Bebe…but while Bebe comes off to me as a very qualified typical drag queen, Nina Flowers has a personality that shines through with a unique punk/rebellious energy. Whereas Bebe always looked pretty, Nina was pretty and, like a chameleon, adapted to all of the challenges with a completely new look.

So, don’t tell me who won. I’m watching the finale tonight.
