"Did. Pre rupaul before that became the the cultural phenomenon I think. There's like Elissa Edwards Roxie, Andrews Brooklyn Heights Nina Flowers Ginger Minj, and then I was like to point out that if you're a fan of pose that affects show that's such a big hit Dominique Jackson who plays Elektra also competed for Miss Continental least twice under the name Tyra, you're and I hope Jasmine Masters. And Masters and some of them were already on drag racing they still competed afterwards i. Do it too so. If. You're a pageant queen. This is the conscious that you want to be in. This is the highly coveted crown and you amazingly got a camera crew behind the scenes and captured the Queen's at their most vulnerable, and there must most frustrating moments I think you know in terms of the highlight of the documentary is the way that people allow themselves to be filmed when they lose and for a lot of the pageant contestants it's like they're not just losing one year they're losing five or six years. In a row and it's so economically mentally and physically taxing to do this pageant. Why do you think they're doing it over and over again? You know that was that was one of my big questions when we were interviewing folks because I can see wanting to try to win the pageant but to try over and over again when you know other pageants like Miss America, do they don't they don't allow that one shot and then you're done and what it, what it was explained to me repeatedly was. This was a dream and this was a goal that they had for so many years and that not only was it a personal. Literally don't mind the crowning achievement. The had had their entire career moving forward mark. How're the drag queens getting their money back when they actually do win like are they touring the country? Are they getting licensing deals? How does the system work I think some will tell you. They're never going to recoup the investment they made. But on the other hand when they have that title in their name, it it increases our booking fees so. I can't tell you any time we've had queens say to us or somebody. I have to raise my rates now that I am a title winner, right you just went up. But more than that, I just think it's personal pride. It's like you know in any in any career that you choose there's some kind of award or honor top kind of you know billing you you could receive in. The Emmy Award. So if you want an emmy. Resume looks good in this particular world misconduct being on your resume is pushing you in a different echelon of talent and achievement. To really OBSTA competition too when you're competing against other people year after year and they see somebody like Oh that person's competed three four or five times now, and then they finally wins some kind of inspiration for them to just to keep on going like some year. It's going to be my year and you know showing up and showing what you've done and how you've changed over the years impresses people that you have that stick to it have miss and you know like if I just wait it out, I will get the crown. Right And if you you know, we have like forty years of footage in that film clips and you know if you look at some of the entertainers, their first year, I, think there's a clip of Nation Lopez. The first year she competed and whenever she has watched the film and I have watched her watch the film she cringes at how she looks and sounds in that first year because less Polish much younger, a novice rookie So you know it's like any it's fun to see that evolution. And the first time we ran into nation Lopez was as a contestant on Rupaul drag race I believe she was one of the eliminated. And and we had her on the show and part of it. It was like she was coming in from having won Miss Continental to getting on repulsed drag race Guinea sent home I, and having to relive all those kind of negative emotions associated with the pageants and. was wonderful story about her initially wanting to give up the crown well. That's some some t that we had heard that and I asked her about it on the podcast. Because I don't want to give too much away eventually nature does win the crown. And I guess the rumor was that she wasn't really upholding her her duties as the crown holder because that was frustrated she was while there's certain things if you win, you are contractually obligated to go to certain events have certain outfits for these events. That kind of thing you don't just win this crown and they send you on your merry way there's obligations to fulfill and. The story goes is that she was not necessarily fulfilling those obligations per like the gym. Flint's requests. So she came into the office with her crown, put it on the desk and said you want this back and he's just said. Miss Please have a seat. Let me tell you about the only other person who gave up the Crown Miss Continental Crown I'm not sure who it was, but it was somebody who had some drug may have been mentioned in your. In your film, they had some problems with drugs and I think they ended up. Something bad happened to them. So he was like, do you want to end up like this person and she's like, no, he's pick that crown up get out of my office in. Do you're damn? Job Gas that I asked her about it and she said she's like Jim Clinton I have a very good relationship now. Imagine you know because Jim. Flint. The. Creator and the run, the man who runs the baton, the the club that is so legendary in giving rise to so many of these. Contestants and performers. Outside of the Rue Paul's drag race world you have people like Chili Pepper and Mimi marks and ginger grant who you know even if you don't know about ru girls, you've heard of their names either through the Oprah Winfrey show or donohue in the early days when they used to interview drag Queens along means used to go on those shows that were from the continent scene and you know and part of it is like I think what was so interesting to see was just these rare private moments with people like Mimi marks are talking about her her romantic relationships and Mimi marks was very famous in the early nineties for dating Dennis. Rodman the best guy up you know and talk about it. She just smiles and says, we were friends. It's also say. Well.

"Elo sizes, mark sex, Meyer this. Is He. This is Fausto furnace and mark. Feeling from Feast of fun. How are you today? Good. How are you guys? Not Too bad. We sell much enjoyed watching your documentary film the Queen's excellent very happy to hear that you've been working on that film for at least a decade now. Almost a decade, nine years and Tony Yes what made you want to pick this incredible drag pageant system, Miss Continental over other drag pageants systems as the subject for this film. Yeah. Colonel Es I have and it's legendary. So that pearly answers. So the long version of it is when I moved to Chicago back in ninety four, one of the very first clubs I went to was the baton when it was downtown in its in its original location before it moved to river north and so I'm sorry that location I was thinking of a different one. But yeah, that location and so that's the one I used to go. To seriously for like the first year, I was in Chicago I went with friends or co-workers and I just love the baton I love the fact that it was more than drag that they were female impersonators many if not most of them transgender performers and and so when I left, Fox Chicago after reporting there for seventeen years in started the reporters. INC, which is our production company I went to Jim Flint. WHO's the owner of the baton I said you know it'd be great if we could make a reality show out of the baton and he and many of the performers that was a great idea. So we put together a sizzle real world shot. You know a ten minute kind of many show that we then try to sell to producers to networks. We were finalists in the new. York television film festival but nobody bought it nobody would commission it so. I put it on the back burner even though he'd shot a lot because the recession was still you know until and. I just I just didn't know it was GONNA to make a go of it and I had to take another job. So then someone said, you know you really ought to look at miscount nettle Jim owns misconduct altuve and I'd never been to Miss Continental and just thought Oh it's a pageant. You know I'm not a big Miss America kind of Guy But when we went and we I filmed the misconduct plus pageant, which is the misconduct version for plus sized of competitors who who may not stand. As good a chance in the regular misconduct on I. Just blown away at how entertaining it was the talent you know the gowns, the illusion that glamour the everything was just like on a level that I had no idea. I just didn't know what to expect and I remember our videography at the time turned me said, this should be our focus. So when we started putting the film together as documentaries would pose a reality show the miss became more of the focus because as much as I love the baton. That's kind of where misconduct winners go to perform after they won the title is we we incorporated boat into the end of the production because there's a lot of drag pageants in the United States, yes miss gay you ass of. Miss Gay. America. The was the first one national entertainer of the year all American goddess the. Florida. National Miss National Large Universal show. Queen Miss Gay International Miss Gager national plus chroma Josh national bearded. So muddy is up on their pageants only definitely, the Queen one does not feed into the continental system, right? I don't think so. I mean I would say with all those great pageants. Two reasons we one is because we were you know I was in Chicago and it was Chicago based and they're never been documentary done on it before Jim never let cameras go behind the scenes and then it is the I it is the first pageant that allowed transgender performers to perform Jim says he started because a lot of them were being. Discriminated against from entering some of the other pageants if they'd had body enlargements or body changes or were somewhere on the spectrum of change transitioning, and so he was a trail blazer in that way and I just thought you know this is a story that needs a retold because I don't think most people who don't follow this this slice of the lgbtq plus culture known anything about it and the Reporters Inc.. Mission is to explore a subject matter that's undiscovered ignored, avoided, underrepresented or misrepresented by mainstream media. The about mark peddle what I'm trying to wrap my head around is why Miss Continental compared to all these other pageants and in your in your own words is considered to be the most prestigious and sometimes most cutthroat international pageants. Yeah, you know I again when you state those words we do, which is part of our promotional materials get people to watch it. Yeah. It's based on you know conversations I've had with many people in the pageant world and a lot of the Queen's I spoke with be their past present or or vying for the future always said, this was one that they all wanted to win. This was one of the most prestigious and the one the most competitive. So I think that's where that factor comes in, and again it's it's it's distinct from the others that don't some of which don't or haven't in the. Past allowed the transgender competitors and like you said, it's the community that supports it that says, you know I've interviewed some of the The girls are the contestants or even people right going to the patch and they're like this is the patch and this is the crown that everyone wants. If you are a female impersonator, this is the one. This is the most prestigious. Yeah, and I think they say that I it'd be fair. I think people say that about whatever pageant currently but with continental, it really is though I mean I mean who else has a turn out like this you know and it's amazing. Paul's drag race came along. It's like Miss. Continental. Was the place to go to and a lot of actually Ruger. First, big break on the continental stage. Yeah them I mean if you're a rupaul drake rates fan, there's so many names that you'll recognize that make cameos in our film because that's what they did. Pre rupaul before that became the the cultural phenomenon I think there's like, Elissa Edwards Roxie Andrews Brooklyn Heights Nina Flowers Ginger Minj, and then I was like to point out that if you're a fan of pose that affects show that's such a big hit Dominique Jackson. Who Plays Elektra also competed for Miss Continental least twice under the name tyra allure and I do P- Jasmine masters. and. Masters, and some of them were already on drag racing they still competed afterwards i. Do it too so. If.

They just weren't happy with Elissa was breaking some rules. They just weren't happy with her breathing. Being K. walking out the door opening your mouth. Broke all the rules so Kokomo trees the first runner up that pissed off. About that. I believe. So I really have her ailing was confused because I saw listen she didn't seem upset about the fact that she had lost the crown it seemed that coke is. I think it was the friendship thing because it's like you and I are really really good friends. And they basically offer you this crown because. She she's breaking these rules and you took you took it was. I mean she could've because, for example, for me if I was first runner up and and this is a no way and representation of cocoa's character you know she she made decision could she wanted to but for me if if I I, want to I, want when the pageant you know what I mean I didn't want it to be handed to me if someone.

"Well, that's the other thing too is like you're a performer and then it's like these people have all these expectations and they go how far did you go? You're going to see you and then you know you can't tell them. You're going to be disappointed right? So it's got that has to be really hard. Why are we not seeing this person's name by the way? Let's just say that her name shouldn't be. DAX. Exclamation point it should be DAX question. Mark. Okay. I'M GONNA say. Left going girl relax. It's just a TV show like this Friday violent that we're GONNA see. You, keep my name out of your mammy violet CIANCI hurt drag daughter goes competes and wins. You'll get on the show and you get eliminated in a double nation that has to feel a certain way and she's carrying that on her back right now my drug may drag daughter can win this and I can't, and so it it. It gets a little challenging particularly listened to can only be one person all. When you've got twelve people competing and so it's some- somebody's gotta go and a lot of times you don't necessarily as we've seen in the past, you don't have to be the talented queen to win. I'm certainly are very talent like of in. Queen Bianca del Rio is very talented queen that are really good in their forte, but there's other people that were also in there. There were also very talented, but differently talented. So it's very mercurial on the part of Rupaul and who she choose or whoever logo executives tell her she needs to choose right because last year she didn't want violence she wanted somebody else. Said? No. You will choose violence after that. She Gate you're picking violate. Yeah. She's already had her. But no, and for example, there's girls that are on the show that didn't win did win Shangila she one for me Elissa Shizhong because these are people that are latrice. Caccia that are so successful doing so well that they did when they I mean bb she. Didn't win. Let's be honest and. Meena one me no one entire who knows. Raven. Raven Raven. Manila Luzon on that season. is to Rajoub. I believe the right Raja One and Manila's her her run around with. Pandora Bucks was that season two two. So she did she won in that sense. Yeah she got congeniality and she was comedy Queen and what did. You say two sisters that are take things hard because you certainly been enough pageants insane people like who are very deserving. Yeah. Get sent home or not win. You, seem to have a very good head on your shoulders about this. Yeah. You know I. I try to be positive with with everything and. Don't look at the glass half empty look at it how four because they're just know that you're capable of so much more sometimes, it doesn't happen or work out the way we kind of plan or anticipate but we have to look at the bigger picture and sometimes it's what did you learn from this? What can you take from this end? I learned so much from this. And I know that there's so much more for me. So you know maybe it's loneliness you strike me as somebody who has a very strong family community you're surrounded by beautiful people and and so it's it's like you know when things go bad. As the Beatles say, hi, with a little help from your friends. You got through these things because you have a strong support network. For some performers and entertainers, it's them in the hot glue gun. Yeah. Not Totally and sometimes it's it's kind of pick you back up because when you are doubting yourself are thinking you know in this negative state of mind. They're the ones that you know sit there and tell you hey, you know you're more than that. You're this you're that you're. Everything. So Elissa Edwards, you familiar with her she's a pageant. Carl she's a friend of mine. She's kind of. Can you translate things from Eliza eased to English. Do, you understand her when she speaks I do. Like get into my Gig can mean so many things whether it's the mog whether she has so many things like. It really is challenge. Just understand what she's saying sometimes you're like curve elect for real. What did you just say what do you mean? She Saturating. Or is this like just her energies dynamic? This is her. That's Lissa. Aw Listeners on. Twenty four, seven. What psycologically speaking, what what do you attribute to that type of Behavior Dynamic I think that she she is who she is and should really doesn't make apologies for just like this like it or not. You'RE GONNA leave it down and I think she's like that and everything she does she's one pageants and she's never compromise who she was. Because she's now miss all American got us. So I have to be this way. She's like, no I one, this pageant being me. I'm still going to do me and if they don't like they can. Of. Me which has happened on more than one occasion but. About you girl. Let's talk about your rain continent share. What kind of challenges did you have a during rain the fact that I was a boy even even Jim you know when I would go to. Land at the airport at noon and have to be a registration at one. PM. I'm not transgender I cannot just you know half facial hair On board the plane with hair down to my ass and our full face of makeup and go straight registration. Where you just register contestants, they show up as boys. That our boys. But there was an expectation that because I looked the way that I do I, play the part that I was GonNa do

"I'm. Not Joking. Not Joking. She said afterwards. I trying to wrap myself on on the idea that elissa Edwards is very much a very dynamic, very vivacious, very wild personality and and sometimes when we're that, we get rejected a lot by society. And beyond on on this podcast or on television, a reality TV show for a lot of entertainers who are that carry that quality it's nerve wracking because they're worried that they're going to be what if they're not going to like me well in in a setting like that in reality setting like that but the best thing you can be as yourself. which is even more painful when they don't like you right. Now and and. some of my friends say it's like you know create a character that you can be on reality television. So people reject you have you got a bad edit or you feel like you did poorly on it it's not a personal attack on you and I think that's the tricky thing about being this kind of situation. Those pageants to is that they're not just judging your art they're judging you as a human being and Oh, absolutely you have to have a thick skin going into those. You know if you lose way more than you went and it definitely teaches you to be. A gracious loser a good winner an pageants. Prepare you for a lot of things in life. You know for I could walk into any job interview and know that I got it because of the skills I learned through being pageant. Little, more training for them, but our Fred worked on a documentary or a TV show documentary focused on the patch world For Women who grew up in, did pageants little girls gone onto become beauty queens and whatnot and they looked at them like twenty years later to see like what what these people are like my friend. You know she's she's a riot girl and has Shad. These expectations that these women were going to be all like Stepford wives and she was just like I couldn't believe it. You Know I. Hear these beauty queens they went onto become doctors and lawyers a professional women and she was just she was a little surprised because. She grew up very punk rock and she just thought these women were just kind of like. Bowing down to the Patriarchy and just being like going to be somebody's house. A housewife or a mom or Mary well, and these women really did it for themselves went on to create great lives. Just goes to show you. You can be anything that you put your mind to if you want it bad enough. But do you feel like your experiences in being pageant contestant? So in transformed you for the better as a person Oh without a doubt without a doubt you're saying in our in our last interview that make it that in a decade you went through a transformation from not. Losing to winning the pageant and I'm wondering like upon retrospect what exactly changed in you I think everything changed I mean a decade is a long time to experience life gain wisdom grow as a person in mature. When I the first time I competed when I was twenty I didn't know myself and I didn't know what I was capable of as an entertainer as opposed to going back. Over a decade later, I want every single category I, the entire pageant and I had a wonderful year because a new myself and a new my strengths they played to those and and it also gave me the wisdom maturity to be a capable leader in title holder and actually do good things that benefited not only myself but my community. While I was on the road when you one did you have anybody like crystallization like look at heart not say she doesn't look beautiful she does look beautiful tonight's. I'm sure somewhere in the hotel somebody adds something to. Scream it to your face no. Absolutely not beautiful. My Mom and my sister were there a lot of my close friends? I. Couldn't have asked for more picture-perfect when. I mean people in Chicago they loved you for so long for you know how long however long you've lived here and have had such great respect for you and your talents and I love and I miss. Chicago so much. But do notice like even in hearing you talking about the pageant's is that you sound like a pageant contestant. Measured very polite. Speaking off the cuff or losing your shit. Anger. Planning Doll Trust me. So do you think your experience in being in pageants? Help you manage your anger? Better? Well, I think that comes with being a public figure. Obviously when you're in the pageant's you want to remain humble and respectful. And measured as they say, you don't WanNa rock the boat too much. But now that I'm semi retired from all that and I have different priorities in my life I I do speak my mind a lot more freely. I'm a lot more grounded in Reno my beliefs politically and in not afraid to speak my mind about those things. Because you just one woman show with many play many characters many first ladies as Milania trump and other first ladies eighteen province town called. Let them eat cake diary of a first lady. You're such a completely different person as Melania trump I remember the night that trump won I was in Nashville at what are called tribe and we're all just sitting there waiting to celebrate Hillary is win and then we saw things just going south and just it was like somebody died the whole atmosphere came down and me and my friend we're like this is depressing. Let's get the fuck Outta here we just went home and drink ourselves silly. I got very angry because how could such a disgusting revolting horrid man become the leader of the free world and a lot of obviously on social media everybody's raging and But that's not enough to create real change that's not enough to to change hearts and minds, and so I decided for my protests that I would use my art and so I wrote a show affirm melania point of view I mean because by all accounts she was absolutely miserable she didn't want thefts and her life had just become a living hell being coming the first lady of the United States does it strike you more that she's inconvenienced than upset? She rather be shopping and designing jewelry. penthouse somewhere we were hearing news stories that Milan didn't WanNa live in the White House. Yeah. We'll actually she didn't move into the White House until something like eight months after the inauguration because he wanted Barron to finish out the school year in New York. So she stayed behind in new. York. But it was heavily rumored that she just didn't want to leave. Which of course, was creating a huge headache for the people of new. York because the police presence there traffic tied up street's blocked off and the city of New York was paying out of pocket for their personal protection and fortifying trump tower. Aren't. She's a very mysterious interesting figure I, just thought she was worth exploring. So when I started diving into writing the show, I obviously had to steady her background study the trump's you know going back three years in business and their social network, and they really are terrible people. They are the worst. They're the worst people that could have ever gotten into the. White House, his Malania terrible person I, know her husband is do field is she terrible just because she supports him.

You're such a completely different person as Melania trump I remember the night that trump won I was in Nashville at what are called tribe and we're all just sitting there waiting to celebrate Hillary is win and then we saw things just going south end just it was like somebody died the whole atmosphere came down and me and my friend we're like this is depressing. Let's get the fuck Outta here. We just went home and drink ourselves silly. I got very angry because how could such a disgusting revolting horrid man become the leader of the free world and I you know obviously on social media, everybody's raging and. But that's not enough to create real change that's not enough to to change hearts and minds, and so I decided for my protests that I would use my art and so I wrote a show affirm Milania point of view I mean because by all accounts she was absolutely miserable she didn't want this and her life had just become a living hell being coming the first lady of the United States does it strike you more that she's inconvenienced than upset she rather be shopping and designing jewelry. penthouse somewhere we were hearing news stories that Milan didn't WanNa live in the white, house yeah. We'll. Actually she didn't move into the White House until something like eight months after the inauguration because he wanted Barron to finish out the school year in new. York. So she stayed behind in new. York but it was heavily rumored that she just didn't want to leave. Which of course was creating a huge headache for the people of New York because the police presence there traffic tied up street's blocked off and the city of New York was paying out of pocket for their personal protection and fortifying trump tower. Aren't she's a very mysterious interesting figure I just thought she was worth exploring. So when I started diving into writing the show I obviously had to steady her background study. The trump's you know going back three years in business and their social network, and they.

"I feel like they kept Heidi on the show because she was great reality TV. And they edit her very well in the challenges and granted. She did very well in many of the challenges but they could have easily edit it to not be that great but they show To uplift this very very very talented magnetic character person personality and I just think that that is. That's kind of what I see. They kept Heidi on. It's not that she stayed on and I don't want I'm painting myself into a corner here because I don't want to discredit anything that Heidi did. I think she. She proved herself on the show. But I think the story line of her and her having that amazing personality is what what saved her I think of like Elissa Edwards or A. What's her face a Silky I think of all the Queen's were with that we didn't want them to leave because of their personality now silky. Okay that's a whole other discussion but you know what I mean. She was kept on the clearly. Yeah I mean that's also that's you know there has to be so many factors. They're thinking about in crafting this like. Why are people tuning in people going to be in love with? I mean this goes back to season seven again with Pearl. They know the Queen's that like they they've been doing this long enough. They know the Queen's that people are GonNa just glomming onto I wonder if there's some surprises. I wonder if crystal method was a surprise. You know If they didn't expect her to be what she ended up being the C. Oh I see what you mean. It was it was an actual surprise in in the course of the competition and was like. Oh we're keeping her. Yeah Yeah I mean some of them they probably bring on. I mean they may have brought on some of them thinking Oh Britta she's going to be she'll be furlong only pricing look. They obviously don't know but I mean I think at a certain point there has to be that idea of like. Okay well we. We know from hours of footage and interviewing this queen is so charming. We know our audience. We know the model they. They're not gonNA WANNA see her go and then at the same time I mean. Not that. There's any rigor Morris here but like they also know that if you send a rock sacre home you know second. That's going to get people to respond as well so it's want any type of response. There's so much TV. Making yeah. And I just I. I've noticed that that this season we have talked more about the editing and the production of this than any other season part of it also is because the show is very very produced. Now I know I know. Yeah What can you do you know? I mean I'm more easily because we've been recapping it and watching it for so long. Been analyzing the shit out of it. Yeah the shit out of it. Whatever CENTER DANCE THE SHIT? Out of that movie is I only know is like the ending makes no sense because the set changes and the costume changes. Someone shows up on a motorcycle incomprehensibly. I love that last scene from center stage dance it only God. It's so great. It's yeah he's The guy that Peter Gallagher with those stupid eyebrows Peter Gallagher. Yeah but he's not in that dance scene Now the one game not a dancer. He's not answer either he's the choreographer. Whatever but the yeah the guy with the big balls the big bowl jr he was like an actual ballet dancer. And then there was Charlie who kind of looked like the little brother of the property. Brothers and Yeah I. Isn't Suzy Kurtz in that movie? Yes yes I believe she is. You have to watch that movie. That movie is so bad. I'll certainly watch. Suzy Curtis scenes but at the a lot of fast forwarding. Let me see here. Centerstage CAST I to spend too much. Oh No it's not. It's thought that Google alert in my brain for Susie Kurtz didn't go off. You know what? I'm so mad at myself. Okay I Donna. Murphy's in it Her on but Debra Monk Debra monk I mean yeah yes and Zoe Saldana. It's you know it's one of those movies anyway. We're going to move on. Let's let's talk about this episode of Drag Race and before we do tell our Mary's what they are listening to. Well they.

"From comedy to pure beauty in me IMAS, plastic TR Brent's. Do you have any thoughts about plus TC fish fish fish, fish, fish, push push push push push. That's all I see. And I'm so excited. She does have a personality behind her. Like, I was worried at first that it was going to be all look because everybody in this cast. This is the one that looks most like conventional woman, she looks absolutely gorgeous. And apparently she is the youngest Queen of the season. And she does her own wig. She works hair. Stylist all of that's great. But to me in order to succeed on rupaul drag race, you have to have a personality behind you. And by the way, this is the other Asian Queen and the cast, and I am so excited to say that she does like in her interview on meet the queen's, and the build thing I thought she did come across really well thought she came across Hungary and confident not cocky, she was self assured. And I'm excited to see if somebody who basically is a life sized Barbie doll can take a run at winning repulsed drag race. Oh my God. She's so pretty she's so forget pretty I can't Terry her. I love all her pictures. And oh my God. She's just so gorgeous. She even talked about the fact that while she can sell when she could make her own looks. But she also she saved her coin brought a lot of designer looks because you know, you need to have. Well, if maybe you don't live up all of the performance of aspects couple of good designer lugs that can really help push. You all the way to. The end I think she somebody who is gonna look amazing on the runway and two point like, she definitely does have personality. But I don't know if it's a new of personality to get her the win in the end, I can see her probably going maybe around midway in the season but wall she's here. She's so pretty, and I can't wait to look at her every second she's on my screen, given her pedigree watching the videos confu confirms that she can dance the house doubt. She's the drag daughter of Elissa Edwards, and you can also tell that as well where I think she says in the bills video that she's a sensually an introvert at heart, but Elissa repelled tease her out of her shell in that true. Eliza way, her personality, actually minded me a bit of aquaria in that she has a very deadpan and awkward sense of humor where in that interview with Adam Ripon, she just had a very interesting dry way of answering his questions, but I found some humor in that. So maybe she's going to be able to benefit from that unique sense of humor paired with the. Fact that she has at least choreography skills that can get her through a lot of lip syncs and on top of that like you said those looks to boot the house down. I think that she's a fishy Queen that can do a really good job. I think she has a really interesting story as well. I believe a she's a Vietnamese immigrant, and she grew up in a very religious and conservative family, and I can only imagine how net may have horrid her to her career sense as well. And also made her, you know, realize the Queen and person that she truly is. And she's another singer. There's a couple of videos of her singing some Vietnamese and American songs as well. So I do think that cast officiyf as there are a lot of good qualities. They're in plastic. All right. Who's next Raja DO Hera Liana any thoughts on Raja here? Okay. So the first they actually watched was that video with Monet where she was hosting all of them and Russia annoyed the shit outta me in that video..
