250MC Research: Rupaul’s Drag Race

RuPaul, the world’s most famous drag queen, as the host, mentor and judge for season two of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Logo’s hit reality series which will be the ultimate in drag queen competitions.

The race is back with an all new season. The top 9 drag queens in the U.S. will vie for drag stardom as RuPaul, in full glamazon drag, will reign supreme in all judging and eliminations, while the debonair Mr. RuPaul will help guide the contestants as they prepare for each challenge. Contestants include the nation’s hottest most glamorous drag queens, including one voted in by you online!

Each week, joining RuPaul on the judges panel, are fashion journalist and best-selling author Merle Ginsberg and Project Runway breakout star and designer Santino Rice, plus a bevy of celebrity guest judges including: Bob Mackie (Designer), Michelle Williams (Destiny’s Child), Lucy Lawless (actress), Maria Conchita Alonso (actress/singer), Robin Antin (creator of The Pussycat Dolls), Debra Wilson (Mad TV), Jenny Shimizu (model/actress), Tori Spelling (actress), Dean McDermott (actor), Howard Bragman (Author of “Where’s My Fifteen Minutes?”) and Frank Gatson (choreographer).

Each cast member must embody the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent that made RuPaul an international drag superstar. The judges will determine the bottom two contestants of the week. Those contestants then compete in a show-stopping battle-royal “lip-synch for your life” performance that will determine if they will “shante” and stay and who will “sashay” away until one is crowned America’s next Drag Queen Superstar!

This programme has now come to the UK and it really is an interesting programme to watch, the programme really documents each Drag Queen, it is showing the life of a Drag Queen on a new media level, showing it on the television in the UK to me makes others that have not seen Drag Queens a very new experience for them, they get to see the lives of the men, the men as they wished they were always a woman. Throughout the programme the men are very confident with in themeselves when in drag and not in drag but you really find out abouts these mens lives as they talk about the confession to familys, how they find it as they change their gender and they discuss their past, watching the programme tells you more about each of the Drag Queens intermatley as they are documented as they talk in confidence to each other but also it is telling the world, the feelings that are held in and how those feelings feel to each of them. This programme is also showing the older generation the change that is going on in the future, but the feelings that they talk about shows that these men are not to be judged, because they are just wanting what they have always dreamed to be.
