124th Place: Magnolia Crawford (Season 6) - finished joint-last

Sometimes I - and I'm sure you, too - wonder who would have gone home first if season six had started with all 14 queens together, tackling a TV shows-inspired sewing challenge. Would Kelly Mantle really have been B2 over Joslyn, Laganja, Adore and Darienne? Who knows. One thing's for sure though: Magnolia Crawford emerged from season 6 as the biggest loser, with the absolute worst attitude.

The owner of a real name that's far more interesting than her drag name (and indeed a male face that's far more appealing), Magnolia reportedly quit drag after her disastrous S6 showing and the negativity from the season spilled into what is probably the most awkward finale interview of all time. Claiming she hadn't watched the season prompted a rare moment of upfront shade from RuPaul ("I can't... I can't with her.")

She spent Untucked and her lipstick message interview saying she was only there for exposure, and that any publicity is good publicity... which is perhaps why we keep hearing about that Magnolia Crawford four years down the line!


Memorable quote(s): "I'm Magnolia Crawford and I am Seattle's sexiest dr- no I'm not sexy. I am Seattle's funniest- well I'm not funny, either." (At least she had a disclaimer!)
"I'm not changing for no motherfuckin' Michelle Vie-sarge."
Best Runway(s): n/a
Best Moment(s): "I've got a god-damned bow on my ass!" followed by immediate rejection from Santino/Michelle.

"Yes, I should've kept my big fat ****ing mouth shut. I can't, though. I like how I sound."

I'm not gonna lie, I did like Magnolia for the soundbites she provided during her only episode. I think she had potential, but she was out of her depth in such a strong cast. The whole exposure thing was an attempt to retain dignity and power over the situation because she knew she was going home. Another one of my underrated favourite's:

(Magnolia walks over to Joslyn who has almost finished her dress)

"Oh. You've created a production."

123rd Place: Dax ExclamationPoint (Season 8) - finished joint-last

Some of these rankings may look a little harsh and in all good conscience I am quite aware that they're all capable of good things and good art, so please don't construe these low positions for disrespect (unless I out-and-out trash you, I guess?)

Dax ExclamationPoint... my recollection heading into season eight was that she, one of the early rumours of the cast, was hyped a lot because she was the drag-mother of Violet Chachki. Now, whilst Drag Race has a penchant for tearing down the queens with the most hype and most obvious path/connection to success, I really didn't expect Dax's performance to be what it was.

The editing was extremely dirty in episode two, and that huge prefix of the lipsync with Lucian Piane and RuPaul saying it's the biggest gay anthem of all time, it can't *not* be good, etc., was completely unnecessary and was only included to serve as a big smack for underwhelming. Because there have been far more boring lipsyncs since then that didn't result in a double-sashay (Shea/Nina, Jaymes/Kimora, Farrah/Cynthia) and it's already a kick in the teeth to go home early on, without this insult to injury.

That said, it's hard to feel that bad for Dax when even her exit interview was just... blasť and negative (even pretending to not know what Laila's name was, despite them exiting together).

She was read for having misshapen padding and managed to make a Hello Kitty runway - the same theme her bloody daughter CAME THRUUUUU in!!! - look boring and then had an ugly seaweed/yellow dress combo afterwards that couldn't even be saved by her ripping the yellow off and waving it around in the lipsync.

I will say this in her defence though: that Bitch Perfect challenge was terrific and it sucked that someone had to go home for it, let alone two people.


Memorable quote(s): "I look forward to a nap. And vodka. Lots of vodka."
Best Runway(s): n/a (both sucked, sorry )
Best Moment(s): The look of dissatisfaction on Mathu Andersen's face when she goes "YAY!" as her idea of being 'bigger' in the Winners' Circle photoshoot.

I knew I'd meant to include someone else in my Tempest/Carmen/Charlie trifecta... turns out it was Dax, so good call!

To her credit, I guess she 'won' the infamous I Will Survive lip sync, but even that's in the same, very notional way that Honey 'won' against Vivienne

122nd Place: Penny Tration (Season 5) - finished last

There is absolutely no justice in the fact that one of the greatest 'names' on the show of all time ended up performing as badly as Penny.

Two queens have made it onto the show as a result of an online voting contest by the fans. One performed pretty well: Darienne Lake made the top four! The other was Penny Tration. And she beat Adore Delano to it. (disclaimer: I may be wrong but I'm fairly sure it was JUST two online votes)

Indeed, it does seem she was cast for the name alone. The opening episode's underwater mini-challenge of course prompted the customary "deeper, Penny Tration! Deeper!" quips, and Mike Ruiz managed to wrangle in a lame double penetration joke on her only runway.

She was absolutely not cast for learning her words, apparently, and those tricky lyrics to Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA" turned out to be her downfall, and she was sent packing by literature enthusiast Serena Cha Cha (consequently upsetting all of the other queens). She's also potentially the queen who delivered the absolute worst finale/reunion look of all time, rocking up in a reworking of the dress she was eliminated for (embellished with a tiny silver top-hat glued to her face).

She apparently quit drag for a while, but now seems to be back and making pretty good wigs, so it's not all doom and gloom


Memorable quote(s): "To my dear, dear Serena... I would read you but it does appear life already has."
Best Runway(s): n/a
Best Moment(s): Her Mae West runway walk.

Yessica Wild did not die at Stonewall to be forgotten like this! (iirc Nina Flowers was also a fan vote)

And Adore actually beat Penny by some way, but the producers disregarded the final vote because Adore wasn't ready for season five/they wanted a battle of the Idols on season six

I knew I couldn't remember one from S4 so I assumed the idea started in S5, what with the vote being present for AS1 (Mimi Imfurst, number third in the voting? I could not believe it.)

Dax: Bless, I agree that Ru's commentary before the lip-sync was unnecessary. It felt like the double elimination had been planned in advance.

I don't remember there being any hype around Dax, but she certainly was underwhelming on the show. Part of me wanted her to do well because I liked her entrance look and her drag seemed fun and different, but her personality was flat and she never excelled on the runway.

I do have a bit of pity for Dax, considering she left early in such a cruel way and her drag daughter had just won the season before. I feel like she deserved recognition in the edit for being Violet's drag mother, at least.

Penny: Penny would low on my own ranking. I'm sure she's great live performer, no disputing her abilities as a drag queen. I just didn't care for her on the show at all.

Yeah I would've liked Dax to have stayed a little longer, I think there was potential hidden away somewhere

121st Place: Alisa Summers (Season 4) - finished last

A queen for every season, but not this one.

In the hectic clusterfuck of Season 4 drama, Alisa is quickly forgotten and it seems a shame really, because of all of the first-boots it certainly seemed that Alisa was one of the more polished and "ready" to compete. Idk why I'm writing that with a hint of regret when I've put her this low but... eh.

Plenty of queens delivered a post-apocaloctic look that was far too clean and pristine; certainly in contrast to Sharon's blood-dripping demon that still, to this day, is one of the show's strongest. The Princess had whiter-than-whites, Madame LaQueer just had a foot on a plate, Kenya Michaels wore a phoenix diaper. So it does seem a shame to pick on poor Alisa for having exploding titties and a fly-swatter (let alone decide to make Kenya one of the top three of the week )

I have absolutely no regrets about her going so early since this is one of the rare seasons where everyone else, bar Princess/Lashauwn, had a distinct personality (whether it was good or bad) and both of those two performed well in the challenge that Alisa did not. So... them's the breaks.

All I otherwise remember about Alisa is that she told a story about how she was arrested for driving under the influence, in drag, and had to strip in a police station in front of everyone. She had one line in Untucked and it was "I'm prepared to lipsync just in case" like I said... completely outshone and sadly left behind in season 4.


Memorable quote(s): "Baked potato couture!"
Best Runway(s): I did actually like her only one, so...
Best Moment(s): Elvira stanning her titties. <3
