I like Carson. He's quick with quip and fashion savvy.
You would think any queen planning to act terrible on the show would know better. Phi Phi was a horrible, bullying bitch on the show and succeeded in having everyone loathe her. Both on the show and the watching audience. .
I prefer the performance challenges also, and so I guess it's no coincidence that I like the winners of the last 3 seasons better than the winners of the first 3. RPDR has now spawned such an industry of its own, that Ru needs performers to tour after their seasons to keep it going. I mean, who would you rather hand a microphone in front of an audience -- Tyra Sanchez or Jinkx Monsoon?
That said, I have no opinion really on whether the talent pool as a whole has gotten better, worse or stayed about the same over the years. How, for example, would Lineysha Sparx have done on Season 2? Or what if Nina had been on Season 6? What do you guys think?
What do y'all think of the new judges? Santino is getting the axe, and the two new judges are Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley.http://www.ew.com/article/2015/01/28/carson-kressley-ross-mathews-join-rupauls-drag-race-judging-tableI never was crazy about Santino, but the bickering between him and Michelle was always fun. I've always had a little crush on Ross, but not sure about Carson.Looking forward to this season, although I think it has lost a little bit of its magic. If only Nina Flowers could be on every season.
I'm really happy to hear that Santino is out. I'm so sick of him drawling about something being "on point" and his attitude was always that the queens should be dressing to his tastes. I know they all have their specialties, but I never cared as much about the fashion (unless it was really terrible or really great, serviceable is fine for me) as the performance bits. Santino only ever commented on fashion, and it got boring. I can't wait to see Ross and Carson. I still miss Merle Ginsburgh.
I'm surprised TLo haven't done a run-down post of this season's crop of queens yet.
