Default Drag Race UK: Series 1, Episode 1 (Discussion Thread, Spoilers!)

So the main thread doesn't become too polluted with spoilers and aimless conversation... the episode is now up and here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episod...es-1-episode-1

I am 10 minutes in and oh my god I ADORE Vinegar Strokes for her intro alone

For now, use spoiler tags for anything like the elimination, the lipsync, the challenge winner or any other format nonsense. Give it a couple of days before we can let everyone catch up

Whatever reservations I had about this show are gone and I am loving this

Spoiler:

I felt Sum Ting Wong was a little more deserving of the win than the Vivienne but I love both so

I try to find something good in all of the queens but Gothy... hmm... I just don't really know how she got on the show? There was just zero confidence, or charisma, or much uniqueness or nerve or talent, frankly She definitely needed more time to develop. And right down to the exit as well, she tried to emulate a famous catchphrase but just delivered it limply and forgettably. Sad, really. Hope she doesn't take this as a huge knock to her love of drag, though, and learns from it.

A Vivi/Baga alliance in the making, to feud with Cheryl? I know whose side I'm on

This definitely surpassed all the expectations I had for it

Spoiler:

Blu, Scaredy, Sum Ting Wong and Viv are my early faves, Scaredy being at the top, she’s adorable and I can see people being really pissed off at how good she is with so little experience

Sum Ting Wong definitely should have won the main challenge, both looks were amazing but the stamp was iconic!
I like Vinegar Strokes but she really needs to step it up with her looks, the Karbala skater reference killed me though <3
Divina is gonna do my nut in with that laugh and the less said about Maga Chipz the better, the cringey confessionals and general lager lout demeanour were nauseating.


Can’t wait for the next few weeks of bemused Ru trying to understand British culture!

Really good first episode, just felt like regular drag race. Would’ve preferred a sewing challenge but I feel like that could’ve ended up a complete mess
Only issue really is, surprise surprise, the judging. Scaredy And Blu were much much better than Vivienne and Bagga imo.

I really enjoyed it a lot. Vivienne, Baga and Sum Ting Wong were my faves.

Spoiler:

I pretty much screamed when Sum Ting Wong came out as the Bullring statue and her stamp look was inspired. I didn't expect much from her MTQ video but she was very impressive in the first episode. Baga and Vivienne are already an iconic duo and Vinegar quoting Kat for her entrance was amazing.

I'm already perched for Snatch game and I hope to God that Vivienne does Kim Woodburn, I need that in my life.
