What to watch this weekend: RuPaul’s Drag Race

Another week, another new Netflix addiction! This week: RuPaul’s Drag Race. If you’ve never watched it before, imagine America’s Next Top Model but with better outfits, more feathers and much, much more drama.

Glamazon icon RuPaul and her other judges are on the hunt for America’s next drag superstar. In each episode they decide which contestants perform best in the mini challenge, main challenge and runway walk and the weakest performer is eliminated – but only after they’ve lip synched for their life first.

The style is amazing, the talent is incredible, the soundtrack is FIERCE and maaan do we want some of these queens’ makeup secrets. It’s the sort of show that you end up saying ‘Oh, I’ll just watch one episode before I go to sleep,’ and the next thing you know, it’s 3am and you’re eating Nutella out of the jar in your bed, your eyes still glued to the screen.

It, um, happened to a… friend. Anyway, enjoy. Because in the words of Ru: if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?
