Hold Onto Your Wigs: Meet the Queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8
And now, some light and happy and fun news: RuPaul’s Drag Race is coming for your wigs and your waists for an eighth season in March. This year, there are only 12 girls, which feels like less than previous seasons, but since it’s impossible to remember literally anyone except for Ginger Minj from last year, we’re sure this is the right number. Their names are Acid Betty, Bob The Drag Queen, Chi Chi DeVayne, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, Dax ExclamationPoint, Derrick Barry, Kim Chi, Laila McQueen, Naomi Smalls, Naysha Lopez, Robbie Turner, and Thorny Thor. Say that 10 times fast. Say it once. It’s okay if you don’t remember it. We’ve forgotten already.
Anyway! LogoTV doesn’t want us to be great and watch all their intro videos, because they have literally the worst video player on the entire Internet, second only to both MTV and BET’s. Logo, hear our cry. Fix this shit. Look, we managed to get one in here; a Groundhog’s Day miracle! Please click with caution to watch Bob The Drag Queen explain herself. You can try to watch the rest of the ladies yourself here.
If you’re into instant gratification and being lazy, here are the rest of the gals, seen as we know they’d want to be seen: through the all-seeing lens of Instagram.
