‘Drag Race’ Summary: Season 14 Episode 1 – Orion Story Vs June Jambalaya

Only nine months have passed since then RuPaul’s Drag Race crowned Symone the Part 13 winner. But if you tell us it’s less than that, we’ll believe you. Also if you say it was more. (The passage of time is no longer a concept we recognize.)

At last, Drag racing-adjacent content has steadily flooded our streams since the coronation of Ebony Enchantress in April, from new seasons of various international releases to festive events like The Bitch Who Stole Christmas. And don’t forget Queen of the universe, it is also a certain thing that happened.

However, nothing has hit quite the spot quite like a new installment of the flagship series, and Friday’s premiere is a great party.

Seven new queens added to the werkroom this week, starting with the Puerto Rican contest fighter Hunter Alyssa (“It’s hunting season, bitch!”); Seattle’s top skanky replacement girl Bosco (“Okay, get out there today and make a difference”); Los Angeles shade machine Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté (“Are you hungry? Because, bitch, I’m baked!”); and an “adorably twisted little doll” from Denver named Willow drug (“Where am I?”).

We also met LA showstopper Kerri Colby (“I have something to say: Baby, you know every kiss starts with a K!”), dressed in transgender colors; June Jambalaya (“Get a fork, lady, jambalaya is served!”), Another big name from the City of Angels; and Orion’s Story, who arrived with a hiss before making the longest entrance in Drag racing herstory: “Hello? RuPaul? Yes, we are trying to contact you about your car’s extended warranty? Oh, perfect, so I just have one more question for you – are you ready, boots? “We understand what she’s going to do, we just have the question of the execution. So many questions.

See all seven of the queen’s entrances in full below:

And what better way to get to know these queens than by a good fashion talent show? It was an honorable time Drag racing Tradition has blessed us with countless iconic moments, from Tatianna’s beatnik performance on “Same Parts” to the question we all wanted to know about Aja: “Will she dance from the word? is that?”

Most of the talent is… good. June opened the show with an energetic African dance, Bosco treated the judges to a beautiful song, and Alyssa lip-synced a captivating original song by Alyssa. Others were more excited, as Kerri and Kornbread’s stellar jump rope performance turned the runway into its own personal grocery store. And then there’s Orion’s awkward, misguided attempt at a gym comedy routine. (Hey, they can’t all be Phenomenal Phil.)

But our habits Actually Need for discussion came courtesy of Willow. We were skeptical when she first appeared on stage in a flowing nightgown (when the image of Coco Montreese danced in our heads), but everything changed when we heard the first notes. that’s from Enya’s “Only Time”. Do we fully understand the thought process behind Willow running around the stage, dropping various items into her bathtub, then gobbling up a messy plate of meatballs? Absolutely not. But not everything needs to be “understood” to be enjoyed. Some things can only… be.

The runway is also a great way to get to know a queen, so this week’s category (Signature Drag Performance) couldn’t be more appropriate. June emerges strong in a glamorous, sparkly jumpsuit; Bosco rocked another pair of horns for a look inspired by the idea of ​​Dita Von Teese in Hell; Alyssa stunned (and confused) judges My fairy– beautiful suits constructed of ostrich feathers; Kerri gave her nod to her scissors family age roots, rocking a fur coat approved by Alexis; Orion lived his “sexy, eerie cartoon fantasy” as a living mushroom; Kornbread exposes many of her legs in a chic look she describes as “fat, black, and nasty”; and Willow tried to take off something you can see Selena Gomez wearing There are only murders in the building. (If you know, you know.)

Now, the results! We’ll start with Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté, the name couldn’t be more appropriate, as the judges ate everything she was serving. Guest judge Lizzo even called her a “superstar”, which immediately brought her to tears of joy. The fact that Ru announced Kornbread’s victory by saying “winner winner, chicken… necklace?” merely the icing on this well-deserved cake.

Bosco, Willow and Kerri were all brought to safety, while June, Orion and Alyssa had to sweat for the bottom three. Alyssa was eventually spared, leaving June and Orion to lip-sync to the tune of “Water Me” by Lizzo. (Let’s be real for a minute: “Water Me”?! Having to perform an artist’s song in front of them is stressful enough, but this is a completely different situation. We could be wrong, but we are. doubt these queens knew every word of this song before the competition, so congrats to both of them for studying.)

Drag Race Season 14 actorsAnd while we’re at it, here are some more kudos: These queens all made it outside. While June fully embodies the song’s power-hungry lyrics, Orion combined his opponent’s energy with a steady stream of tricks and gimmicks. (Wigs on wigs! Three boobs! There’s so much to enjoy.) Still, we weren’t surprised or annoyed when Orion’s Story was sent sashaying away. Based on all she has to offer us this week, she’s in the last group. And while we can’t put our fingers on it, there’s something about June that tells us she’ll be around for a bit.

OK, let’s talk: Has the queen been eliminated? Who is your favorite (and least favorite) of the season so far? And did you ever think that you know Lizzo’s vaginal name, never mind that it would be Shonda Rhimes? Vote your vote in our polls below, then Drop a comment with your full rating.
