Collection of answers from each eliminated queen when asked who they are now rooting for:
Detox: Me. I don’t know! I love each of the girls so much that hasn’t been brought to the table. It’s hard to throw my support to just one. Roxxxy is my sister, but they all have points of view and drag that need to be showcased! The glory of Jinkx, Alaska, and Roxxxy needs to be seen!
Coco: Oh, God! OK — I know you said only one. Based on friendship and loving and adoring her, Roxxxy. I’ve loved her since day one, we’ve known each other for years, and she’s amazing. Looking at the competition and who’s excelled so much in everything and who I’ve gotten to know and love, just everything about her, I’d have to say Jinkx. The comedy is hilarious, and being with her on set and after the competition, she’s just amazing.
Alyssa: Jinkx Monsoon. I think he’s mastered the art. His craft is so wide-ranged. And the b*tch is funny. I would pay to go watch him on Saturday night, and I would sit in my cocktail dress, hold my clutch, and beat the wall. I would get tipsy and have a good time. That’s how I’m looking at it. I think Alaska is a very sweet person and I really enjoy him. Roxxy is a friend of mine. Detox is hysterical. Coco is actually a very good performer. But Jinkx Monsoon is leading the pack for being so wide-ranged. I can give credit where it’s due. I can give my curtsy, my little bow. I hope it’s him. He’s so deserving.
Ivy: I am 100% going for Jinkx. Not just because I’m in the closest relationship with her, but because she’s a warm-hearted and genuine person. She’s so talented, and I think she’ll go really far. I hope she wins. Definitely Jinkx.
Jade: I just love both of my sisters — Coco and Jinkx. But if you were forcing me to make one decision, I just love Jinkx so much. She is genuinely a sweetheart, and her personality just shines. She has a heart of gold, and I feel like that’s what a drag superstar should be. She’s humble, sweet, and amazing. And talented! And it’s new. She’s something we haven’t heard before. So I’d be proud if she were the next drag superstar.
Honey: God, that is so hard. I would pick Jinkx, I think. She’s my Pacific Northwest sister and I love how much of a character she is. She’s just a really joyful person to be around. That would be my pick. 2nd: My top 2 picks are Jinx and Detox.
Vivienne: Gosh, that is a very hard one. You know what, based on talent, beauty, and the fact that we had a really, really good connection, I’d have to say Alyssa Edwards. I love her. She really is very talented and so drop-dead gorgeous. 2nd: I would say narrow it down to 2: Alyssa Edwards as she is so gorgeous and talented and Jinx Monsoon as I think she is amazing and has a unique style. In addition she is very sweet.
Monica: None of ‘em. None of ‘em! No, just joking. I love them all and I wish them all the best, but for right now the one who I think deserves to win is Jinkx Monsoon.
Serena: My queen who I’d give my support to is Coco Montrese. I learned from her! I don’t even think I remembered everything that happened until I saw her on TV, but her [way of speaking] is very impressive. I think somebody like her should be crowned ultimate queen so that everyone can venerate her!
Penny: I don’t think there’s anyone I am rooting against. That’s great on TV, but in our real personal lives, it doesn’t do anything for anybody. I think it hurts us more than it hurts them. As far as rooting for, I think Detox is a genius. I would like to see that represented as what is America’s Next Drag Superstar. There are obviously other talented people on the show, like Roxxxy — brilliant — and I love Alaska. But I think Detox is a marriage between onstage talent and a great business mind. She can take care of an audience while partying like a rockstar, which I’m completely incapable of. I think she would be a great representative for the franchise.
Note: I can’t find an interview where Lineysha was asked this question.
Challenge Accepted, Mr. President! As Darren says, let’s vote together! ;-)
Remember that time we were like, “Okay, VH1, here’s a Darren GIF!” and then VH1 was like “Okay, here are original amazing Darren GIFs we just made where he’s pointing at you and telling you to vote in the most patriotic red-white-and-blue bubble font possible”?
In other words, we concede this GIF war to you, VH1. Well played1
We humbly accept your concession, Mr. President. We may have won the GIF war, but let’s keep the message alive. Go register to vote y’all! Don’t let these beautiful Darren GIFs be in vain.
I attended GeekGirlCon in Seattle today. There was a panel with Jane Espenson, Brad “Cheeks” Bell, and Sean Hemeon of Husbands, the web comedy. At one point one of them mentioned that every gay couple on TV has a baby. Jane interjected a moment later, “except Kurt and Blaine.” This led to a brief tangent about them. They were all talking quickly, but “Cheeks” mentioned that he loved him some “Klaine” but that it didn’t happen until the fans demanded it, “why doesn’t he have a boyfriend?!?”
It was funny because they never even specified what show this was from when they were discussing it. (I heard some confused rumblings behind me.)
I really wish I’d recorded the audio so I could transcribe. There were some people officially filming, so hopefully it all shows up somewhere. It was a fun panel.
They showed the entire first episode of season two of Husbands. Premieres this Wednesday August 15th at http://lovehusbands.com/. It was awesome. Joss Whedon will appear in every episode. Also already spotted a couple other people from the Joss-verse.There will be many more.
(And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can watch season one here.)
FYI, I will have more videos to come. I am about to fly home, so Bones will be the last panel I upload before I hit the skies. Off the top of my head, I know I have Joss Whedon, Fringe, Supernatural, and Doctor Who complete panels remaining. I’ll queue them up when I get home tonight to upload over the next couple days.
All of my vids from SDCC 2012 that I’ve uploaded so far can be found here. As I add videos they will be added to the playlist. I’m also making individual playlists for each panel for ease of viewing. They can somehow be found by scouring my page.
I can’t believe that the first Glee vid has become my #1 most viewed video on my channel, and it only took about 24 hours to reach that status.
SDCC 2012 was awesome, and I love being able to share things with those who can’t make it.
thanks soso much for the videos. Wonder what that girl was wearing when she asked about the kurt/blaine question
I’m so wiped right now after 5 long days of con, ridiculously early line-ups, and transferring/uploading videos, so I can’t really double check this answer. However, I think there was only one question that qualifies, and if so, I know who asked it and she was dressed as a Warbler.
I’m working on my final preparations to head to comic-con in San Diego. Many camera batteries charged, working on clearing many huge memory cards, remembering my survival kit components, deciding on my geek shirt wardrobe, and making sure I have all of my tickets for getting into the con (4-day + preview night!) and parking.
I’m going to try to record more video as opposed to photographs this time compared to last time. I’m renting a $2300 camera lens to take down though, so there will be some photo taking, possibly while filming video with my SLR. I’ll even record panels that I don’t even personally care about but that I’m having to hang out in the room for because I really care about something later. I’ll try to post on YouTube each night. I’ll blog the videos and playlists here.
My two top priorities are the Firefly 10 year anniversary panel on Friday and the Glee panel on Saturday. I’ve painfully had to accept that I won’t be able to go to some panels of shows I absolutely adore. Other things I should also see that I’m excited about: Psych, Joss Whedon, Geek & Sundry, Nerdist, Supernatural, and Doctor Who. I’ll be in attendance in many others.
So, now I prepare for some crazy early mornings, living on trail mix and jerky, waiting in long lines, and camping out in panel rooms while being inundated by awesome.
Reports of a Glee-less Comic-Con have been greatly exaggerated.
In a late development that is sure to have Gleeks frantically scouring the Interwebs for last-minute travel deals to San Diego, Glee is not only returning to Comic-Con next month but it will do so with one of its most star-studded panels in years.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Lea Michele,Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale,Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera are confirmed to headline the panel, which is set to take place in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 14 from 6 to 7 pm PST.
Additionally, Glee co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk will be on hand to preview the show’s fourth season.
Oh, and yours truly will once again be moderating, so you can probably count on a healthy supply of spoilers.
“The fans at Comic-Con were among the first to really get behind our show, and we’ve had such a great time returning there every summer,” says Falchuk. “This was the first year our cast has not gone out on tour, so Ryan and I thought we’d let them have some well-deserved time off. But everyone wanted to be there, so we couldn’t be happier that Glee is returning to the convention where we feel it all started.
