Rupaul's Drag Race, shown on Logo, cable's syndicated gay and lesbian channel, is attracting an even larger viewing audience than before. This is its third season running and the show has attracted national attention. It's viewing audience has started to go more mainstream as straight audiences are taking notice of this wacky reality show.
If you have not watched it let me give you the low down. The concept is a reality show in which a dozen drag queens are chosen from around the country to compete for the Drag Superstar of the year award as well as winning $50,000 dollars as a top prize. Absolute Vodka is the major backer for the show as well as MAC cosmetics. The winners get some major P.R. and show up in vodka advertisements as well as guest appearances at various events.
The show is pure gay camp at its best! Catfights over wardrobe and makeup, bitchy comments galore , and some great catch phrases like "extravaganzzzaaaahhh" and "scandalo", and more gay drama than you can shake a stick all adds to the over the top camp!
Check it out....its on LOGO on Mondays at 10pm.
