Men in High Heels Entertain the Masses

Does a competition show about drag queens hosted by RuPaul mean reality T.V. has officially jumped the gender-bending shark?


OK.  Enough. Reality shows are getting out of hand. Particularly the modeling ones. First there was "America's Next Top Model" followed by a zillion copy cat shows. Then it started to get weird. "America's Most Smartest Model" on VH1, which pokes fun at models' reputations for being "smart as a box of rocks" and BBC's "Britain's Missing Top Model" showcases disabled women.

Now a new show called "Drag Race" on the LOGO channel seems to be the final frontier: Men pretending to be women. The new show, hosted by THE drag queen, and king of the cross-over, Ru Paul, the show should be anything but boring. At the very least, watching men walk in size 14 heels is always a kick.

Will you tune in?

I watched it. The first episode was amazing. I love RuPaul and I will definitely watch this show. And hello- Santino Rice from Project Runway is one of the judges. Don’t judge RuPaul’s Drag Race before you watch it. It is a fun entertaining show and a fascinating look into the world of drag queens.

I think I will watch it. I like RuPaul also because he/she is sooo fierce!!! It’s just fun. I mean Rupaul is more glamous then me lol. I might get some pointers.
