Oooh girls, finally! It’s Ben’s turn! Although I really do love a ton of the queens this season, Ben’s one of my absolute favorites! She’s just oozing with charisma and character–I love her demented, cartoony personality and her incredibly inventive performances.
Ben’s known for a burlesque style, bringing a playful sexiness to the stage, along with creative costume changes. I think Ben will bring the quick wit and resourcefulness that really shines on the show–I just hope she doesn’t suffer from constant comparisons to both Jinkx and her doppelganger Michelle Visage.
The second spot was ridiculously close tonight–three different queens were within just 5 votes of each other!
But the winner is…. BIANCA DEL RIO!
Boy, do I love this queen. And those dimples–seriously, I could get lost in them for days.
In addition to Courtney, Kelly, and Darienne, Bianca is a prominent, established, confident queen. She’s known for her wicked tongue and uproarious sense of humor, but she’s also a skilled seamstress and performer.
I have two questions about how Bianca will do this season: 1) What will she be like out of drag? Surely, she won’t maintain the tough-as-nails persona of Bianca, will she? 2) What range of looks will she bring to the runway? Despite being a professional costume designer, she seems to favor relatively restrained outfits for her hosting gigs. But I’m hoping she goes totally wild for the show and brings out some jaw-dropping looks.
Tomorrow will be the final day of voting in the Week of Ru! That’s right, I’m going to switch things up, folks! So please come back, vote, and check out the work!
