Exclamation Shaun ranks: every RuPaul's Drag Race queen (50th place)

This is something I've been wanting to do for a while since I'm sure I've probably spat acid at everyone at some point in the main thread and until we get a subforum where we can have threads specifically devoted to Akashia, this is a compromise, but also because I've now rewatched each season probably 4 times or more.

The entire thread is, of course, subjective, so don't get too pressed if I put Alyssa Edwards way down in 79th (spoiler: I don't). I will try to take as much into consideration as I can, but I'll happily admit I've not seen a single one of these queens live and as such can't testify to their full potential. The show & untucked, their social media presence, and also interviews on shows like Hey Qween and What's The T, are pretty much my resources here.

Without further ado... the queen I am putting rock bottom is...

Spoiler:


126th Place: Vivienne Pinay (Season 5) - finished joint-10th

Finishing rock bottom is never a good look and there really aren't that many queens I feel strong negativity about, so the first few writeups here are going to be my most hateful and then I'm going to gush from, like, 110th upwards

Vivienne entered, and indeed exited, season 5 proclaiming herself the fishiest queen that had yet been cast, which is quite cute when you consider she was in a cast with Monica Beverly Hillz, Jade Jolie and Penny Tration Alyssa Edwards. Let alone in the season directly after Kenya Michaels, Our Lord and Fishiness. This should go some distance into explaining the level of delusion with which we are dealing, here, people.

Her elimination of course is what she's most remembered for, on account of it being the first ever double-elimination, but I think that speaks for itself; how do you make "Oops! I Did it Again" boring? It might have been more poetic, though, if Honey had won it since she technically did anyway (even if it was a case of, like, Honey delivering a 3/10 and Vivienne a 1/10)

What makes her the WOAT for me though is her personality. She had this constant stink-face on, and each talking-head she showed was to slag off another competitor: she particularly hated Roxxxy Andrews for being "loud and obnoxious" when they were paired together for Roxxxy's breakout Tossha Salad performance, all the while delivering... well can you remember a Vivienne moment?

All of her runways were short-skirt affairs that might've been cute on Tatianna.

And finally there was controversy when she was found to be ripping off people with a wig company. If there's a better metaphor for a queen thinking she's the shit, and having her ass handed to her by a bunch of actual princesses, I have not seen it.

She might be affiliated with the Haus of Edwards now but honestly, unless there's been a seismic turnaround, I can't see myself ever liking her. Just... really toxic.


Memorable quote(s): "Of course it's a double elimination. Why wouldn't it be?" (fair point sis, at least you worked out your potential after you were eliminated)
Best Runway(s): I guess her "Pretty in Pink" was perfectly fine if you cut out her caked face
Best Moment(s): ...this segment will be used better later in the rankdown.

I was expecting to see Delta behind that spoiler tag (if not just because her recent... efforts with Ru have tanked her stock even further), but I've absolutely no qualms with Vivienne being bottom! they're all bottoms

I only have the vaguest recollection of her so I assume that means she was trash.

(I'm working on getting the subforum, give me time to plead the case)

I remember Vivienne refused to join the other queens for Miley's performance at the VMA's because she was upset she didn't get a close-up during the rehearsal. The best thing about Vivienne was Porkchop's rants on Periscope about her unwarranted diva attitude throughout the ordeal.

I'm so excited for this, Shaun. I'm ready for some of my faves (mainly Cracker and Milk) to be slain early on this ranking. I forgive you already, lmao.

I don't think there's a MAJOR cull (like, anyone beyond episode 7) until.... oh 103rd. Turns out I am hateful after all.

Beside the obvious candidates who seem to exist only to populate the bottom tenth of these lists (the Phoenixes, the Venus D-Lites, the Alisa Summerses of this world), I'm rooting for Tempest, Carmen and Charlie to sashay out of this ranking as soon as possible

And then there are the likes of Pearl, Milk, Cracker (...any synonym for 'white', basically), Trixie, Dela, Pandora, Detox and Raven who I don't particularly care for at best, but deserve at least top 100 because despite my best attempts, I can't begrudge their talent. And Pearl.

125th Place: Venus D-Lite (Season 3) - finished last

My first "first eliminated" mention goes to Venus D'Lite, hands down one of the most uncomfortable pathological liars to emerge from the circuit and a weird self-aggrandizing ego to boot. On the show, you may have missed her... in her first episode she was only shown in the Workroom really throwing shade at Phoenix for copying her idea of crushing up baubles and using the glass as decoration for their outfits. She was then told by the judges she had over-accessorised and presented an underwhelming mess.

The lipsync with Shangela - to Vanessa Williams' "The Right Stuff", in front of Vanessa Williams herself - is one of the show's messier and this is from a season that includes India/Mimi. Venus essentially stalks Shangela around the stage, grabbing parts of her costume and trying to choke her with them, and then throws her own ponytail towards the back of the stage at the other girls (prompting Mariah to quote, "if she'd-a hit me with that hair, I'd probably have to sock her.") RuPaul says he's uncomfortable at the end. By all means, it's an awkward hit! But for all the wrong reasons.

On the subject of Mariah actually:

Venus D'Lite has spent tens, or hundreds if you believe her, of thousands of dollar on cosmetic surgery to look like Madonna. The final result, you ask?



Hmm!

Recently she has appeared on 'My Strange Addiction' (with aforementioned Madonna surgery), taken shots at Milk for booking a collaboration gig with Madonna, implied that she, alone, was responsible for Shangela being cast again on Drag Race by saying it "was her biggest fear" and... oh yeah, exploited a fan's suicidal thoughts to try and look like a hero. I don't know if I "hate" Venus D'Lite, because it's almost comical really, but I just get an overwhelming impression that she is, 100%, not a good person. And a pretty lacklustre queen to boot.


Memorable quote(s): "You can be my friend or you can be my enemy, just say it to my face." (this is... 12 minutes into a season. Really girl.)
Best Runway(s): n/a
Best Moment(s): Santino saying she looks like "a sad Christmas elf".

As far as first boots go, Venus isn't my least favourite. I'm glad she left first, though. In a season as fantastic as S3, I don't see what more Venus could've contributed to its quality. I want to say that she's generally harmless, but then I remember that horrific (yet hilarious, sorry) moment you mentioned with the suicidal fan.

I’d probably have a bit higher in my ranking, but only because I know there are a few more queens I genuinely dislike more than Venus. Also, part of me does appreciate the absurdity of having three or four different Madonna looks for a Hey Queen interview. I can imagine Jonny and Lady Red just sitting there awkwardly waiting and then pretending to care when she comes back.
