This week's list is filled with people who wasted our valuable TV watching time. Don't they care that they are taking up hours that could be spent rewatching episodes of Game of Thrones?
I see more Snatch Game in our futures.
Two people acted like jerks, then got sick and had to be removed from their respective shows... Coincidence?
The contestants have finally been announced for RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race, and there's about a billion reasons why this competition excites us way more than any of those Idol-lookalikes. Most of those reasons have to do with the excess of glitter.
First of all, we're thrilled that our dark horse Sharon Needles took the crown last night on RuPaul's Drag Race's reunion special. Though her victory means that darling Chad Michaels didn't win, it also means that Phi Phi O'Hara was a loser -- and we'll take that, for sure. Drag Race and Untucked have done an excellent job this season of creating the three finalists as the past, present and future of drag. We were also happy to see Latrice Royale take her much-deserved Miss Congeniality award, as we converted of the Church of Jesus Is a Biscuit after her amazing pregnancy Lip Sync for Your Life to "Natural Woman." With the exception of last night's finale, this was one of the best seasons of reality TV we've seen all year... but the travesties of last night cannot be ignored. Here are our biggest complaints:
It's baffling to me that RuPaul's Drag Race isn't amazing right now -- frankly, it's not even very good. I figured I'd be covering it every week, gushing about how fun it's been and wondering aloud why more people aren't tuning into what I thought was going to be one of the best installments of reality TV in a long while. Unrealistically high expectations? Maybe. But there were episodes of Drag Race last season that made me laugh until I cried, and moments that had me genuinely tearing up from how moving the contestants' personal stories were. Unfortunately, there are a couple reasons why I think Ru is f*cking up this season:
It's more Cowell, less Deschanel at Fox this month.
This week, the absolute worst people on reality television were the ones with the least self-awareness. It's one thing to take your show seriously, but quite another to play the victim when it's obviously just for the cameras. You know the following reality stars are bad when they all beat out Dr. Drew and the ladies of the Teen Mom 2 reunion -- though something tells us that lovely bunch will make this list next week. We also considered including Bethenny Frankel for constantly complaining about how poor she used to be, only to reveal that back in those days, she was renting a $2,600-per-month apartment, but we're still trying to process that one.
Meet RuPaul's Drag Race hopeful Mizz Cori. When she's not impersonating police officers covered in Boy George makeup, she enjoys TLC songs, re-purposing Star Trek logos as tasteful nipple pasties, resembling Chris March and working that geisha hand fan! And I enjoy her. Excuse her beauty and cast your vote now!
