How Far Would You Make It On "Rupaul's Drag Race?"
Unfortunately, you're going to sashay away on the first episode! The first challenge is always a photoshoot and an uncoventional material sewing challenge. You probably got caught not making a memorable impression, or wearing bacon as a dress. However, some of the most talented and well respected queens in the industry have gotten sent home first, just ask Kelly Mantle. Maybe the show wasn't for you, your talents might not be easily translatable to reality TV. Heck, you might even get to come back Shangela style for another season! HALLELU!!!
CONGRATS! You had more than one episode of exposure to build your brand! The next few episodes generally test your performance and group skills, ranging from lip syncing to acting. Unfortunately, you faded in the background and couldn't make your assigned character larger than life. The best you could hope for is a memorable trainwreck on the same level as Cynthia Lee Fontaine in The Empire Challenge. Fortunately, your cucu and heart might be large enough for you to be honoured with the prize of Miss Congeniality at the end of the season.
Ah Snatch Game. Known to wipe out the fiercest of queens. You've made it to the halfway mark and have generally done well in the competition, but every queen has to be fully prepared for their snatch - one small mistake and it'll cost you the crown. Your ego might have gotten to you, or you might have just not chosen a easily parodied character. The general public will be outraged at your elimination, claiming RIGA MORRIS!!! You're a fierce queen who brought so much to the table, however, you might have been better off with some better time management skills prior to coming into the competition. Choosing the right celebrity is key when it comes to the snatch!
WOOHOO! You've made it past snatch game and the majority of the group challenges, now is your chance to shine! Unfortunately, you've been riding the tails of other group members, or have been lip syncing for your life so often that the judges couldn't keep you around anymore. The second part of the competition is all about finding your brand, you just haven't found yourself yet and that's ok! You've had ample time to learn about yourself on the show and grow from there. You might even pull a Derrick Barry and finally learn to glue down your brows!
Welp, you've done it! You're one step away from becoming America's Next Drag Superstar. You've formed a tight bond with the other two queens by your side, each of you representing such a distinct brand. It's a tight competition, and let's face it, making top three is a huge deal. You might have come second, you might have come third, we might never know for sure. However, you have proven that you have the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to make it to the end of the competition. You've created bonds that will last for a lifetime, and a legacy on the show that will be immortalized in the drag race fandom.
CONGRATULATIONS HENNY! You have been crowned America's Next Drag Superstar!!! Your win might be controversial, but who gives a damn, you got BANK and a crown to flaunt hunty. You have a big legacy to uphold - every winner has brought something new and unique to the table, so you betta werk. The internet will be arguing for months whether or not you were deserving of your win, but at the end of it all you represented yourself and beat out about 13 other bitches to get to where you are.
