Drag Race UK

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to our weekly wrap-up of all things RuPaul’s Drag Race. As we come into the spookiest month, we’ve got all treats – no tricks – in store for you.

This week, we welcomed the newest members into the Drag Race family with the premiere of the fifth season of Drag Race UK and got to spend time with UK alums Cheryl Hole, Blu Hydrangea and last season’s winner, Danny Beard.

Of course, on this side of the pond, our queens have been keeping us entertained and we’ve got new videos from Maddy, Willam, Trixie, Bob and Monét. There’s lots to bring you into the new week with a smile, so let’s bring it to the runway!    

This week, we saw the premiere of season 5 of Drag Race UK. Watch as the new queen-testants: Alexis Saint-Pete, Banksie, Cara Melle, DeDeLicious, Ginger Johnson, Kate Butch, Michael Marouli, Miss Naomi Carter, Tomara Thomas, and Vicki Vivacious enter the werk room for the first time.

Relive the looks and lipsync from the first episode and learn a little more about this week’s eliminated queen with Danny Beard on “The After Shave.”

It’s been a while, but “Binge Queens” is back! Watch along with Blu Hydrangea and Cheryl Hole as they react to the Drag Race UK season 5 “Meet the Queens” promos. 

The season five UK queens brought their best first impressions for the promo and Yuhua Hamasaki and Alexis Mateo have lots to say about their promo looks on “Bootleg Opinions.”

The large and in charge Latrice Royale (soon coming back to our screens on season four of We’re Here) chats with Maddy Morphosis on the latest “Give It to Me Straight.” I love Latrice and you will too after this interview.

And we oop. The always entertaining Jasmine Masters is Delta Werk’s guest on the latest episode of “Very Delta.”

It’s always a good day when we get a new episode of Beatdown from Willam and this one’s a doozy. Watch as she takes down a clueless author who struggles to define wokeness, a law professor taking on a transphobic senator, a gas stion brawl, one pissed diva and reviews the signs of chronic masturbators. Just watch, I promose it’s worth it.

In honor of the Netflix series Sex Education, Monét and The Vivienne try their hand at sex therapy. After watching them counsel some Brits, I would be glad to get on their couch.

Need some Halloween inspiration? The queens have you covered! Rock M Sakura gives you a tutorial on drag Halloween makeup to beat the scariest of mugs.

Jaymes Mansfield is here to help you ghouls with a new Party City wig makeover, transforming an 80s wig into a totally radical look. $10 never looked so good.

More wigs? Watch as Bob tries on a variety of wigs from Amazon. I was actually surprised at the quality of some of these inexpensive wigs (but it could be that Bob makes everything look spectacular.

Trixie Mattel creates a mod eye look (actually, a “garage door”) and only uses one eyeshadow and two eyeliners for a winning look. 

Monét talks Drag Race Mexico with Valentina on “Sibling Rivalry.”

Priyanka, currently filming season four of We’re Here, takes us to Vancouver for her latest vlog. She takes us backstage for her performance at Happyland with appearances from Alaska, Trixie Mattel and Pabllo Vittar.

It’s been a while since DragCon, but reliving the weekend is always fun. Mo Heart interviews queens including Yvie Oddly, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Manilla Luzon, Jasmine Masters and Priyanka for the latest episode of “Life After the Race.”

Bob and Monét take us back to the crowing of the very first winner of Drag Race, Cameroon’s own BeBe Zahara Benet (sorry for the spoiler) on “Sibling Watchery.” 

And that’s a wrap! We’re leaving you with the latest music video from the iconic Sherry Vine, “Elements.” Until we meet again, stay safe, stay healthy, support the queens and say LOVE!
