    I'm just excited that I can actually understand everyone without subtitles unlike the US edition. Haha. Also I actually know the slang they're using.

    I'm from the UK and watched this with my sister and we were laughing all the way through. It makes such a refreshing change from US seasons which are now full of forced drama and queens being fake nice to each other because they're scared of fan backlash. Most of the looks definitely weren't as good as the US version (with some exceptions), but the entertainment value in the werkroom was UP THERE, big contrast to the US versions which I usually want to skip to get to the runway. Originally I didn't think the BBC was a good fit for Drag Race and it would have been better for Channel 4 with prizes, but I like the fact that they leaned in to the fact they couldn't give prizes instead of just trying to ignore it. The Ru Peter Badge (and how contestants still end up bragging about it later) was hilarious, I would have liked if they also gave similar camp joke prizes like a gold star sticker for the mini challenges or a giant cheque reading "£000,000,000.00, absolutely zero million pounds" or something to the winner.

    Ain't nobody got time to travel over 5,000 miles to make TVclip videos if they're not getting paid. England may have an antiquated af "political" system but I'm sure they have the interwebz. And TVclip. ;)

    I honestly think you guys should get a British host to recap the UK series. Yall are missing the puns and the explanation of the slangs are not as funny as they’re actually used 🤦🏻‍♀️

    UK culture is sooo... um, local
    I think they did deserve to win a cash prize, but this prize really makes sense for them - because, if they're gonna be worldwide known superstars, Hollywood's gonna teach them what they need to succeed and I'm so ready to see it
    PS: John Polly was really unamused tbh, just like Queen Elizabeth, it was almost like a homage lmao

    I'm so sad to see Gothy go - she didn't get a chance to show her potential! The Coyle Twins just posted a video with Gothy, in case you NEED to see more like I do, definitely check out their channel!

    Why is this presenter acting so shady and uninterested- this one episode was better, funnier and more well-edited than the past 2 seasons of American drag race. Who cares about the lack of prize? These queens are all naturally hilarious and witty, and are pulling out such campy, interesting looks. Here for this

    Watch. In a few years the show gets moved to a private station, so a prize can be given. UK Drag Race follows the same road as the American version, where the first few seasons are a running joke. At least it means some of them will get to come back for DRUK All Stars and actually win money.

    The fact that the Queens are not even getting prizes each week or a grand prize is a travesty! RPDRUK should have been on Channel 4!!!!!!

  • Zack Attack

    When I watched the episode I definitely thought Gothy referred to herself as “a bit of a trap” like a hentai cross dressing young boy, which honestly suites her more than “chav”.

    Hope Gothy takes dance and acting classes... star-quality looks and talented at makeup. The cast was underwhelming in MTQ, but was pleasantly surprised by all contestants in the show
