Jiggly: Clearly I don’t get along with you. LeShawn: That’s fine! I don’t have to be your friend. I don’t have to be your friend to win this show. This is not “Rupaul’s Best Friend Race!” Jiggly: No shit Sherlock. Narrator: Don’t sashay away because we’ve got a list for you. Welcome to Miss Mojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top ten shocking “Rupaul’s Drag Race” moments. Oh y’all wanted a twist eh? Come on season six, Let’s get sickening! YAS. Bitch. Work. N: For this list, we’ll be looking at the moments that made us gasp, cry, and maybe even pee our pants a little from laughing too hard. Bianca: Uh, Ru.
Ru: Yes? Bianca: Is this Carla Bonet a robot? Why does she sound like that? Is somebody pushing a button? Laganja: Well actually–
Bianca: Overruled. I’M TALKING! I’m TALKING! Laganja: I think that’s really rude. N: The reality TV series has been going strong since 2009 and that’s not just because Rupaul is quite possibly the fiercest person on television. It’s because each season brings a fresh batch of talented and over-the-top drag queens for viewers to obsess over. Ru: Your beauty is flawless but your outfits lacked clarity. N: And since some of these moments involve eliminations, a spoiler alert is in order. Ru: G-g-g-gia! My pet. Make no mistake. I love you from head-to-toe. Now… Sashay away. Number 10: Sharon Needles and PhiPhi O’Hara fight. Go back and do your only one look that you got! Sharon: Oh, I have one look? Tired-ass showgirl. N: In a house full of aspiring drag queens of course there’s going to be drama. But no one saw this particular fight coming when the notoriously catty PhiPhi O’Hara decided to take the credit for Sharon Needles challenge win. I was being realistic. Realistic is bull**** because I picked out a character for you to sit there and do and you did it great. You obviously won the goddamn challenge. N: Sharon remained calm and collected. But when PhiPhi claimed that the other drag queen wasn’t even on the same level as her, Sharon got pissed. Sharon: I’m the f***ing future of drag. You look twenty years ago. PhiPhi: Oh girl, please. N: The only thing better than the fight itself is the reactions of their fellow contestants. And what makes this fight all the more satisfying for Sharon was going on to win that season with PhiPhi coming in third place. Announcer: Sharon Needles! Number nine: Jujubee hyperventilates on stage. Juju: I don’t wanna do that. Raven and Jujubee go way back since the two made their debut on the show’s second season, where they placed second and third respectively. When they returned for All-Stars they both made it to the final four once again but were forced to lip-sync against each other for a spot in the final three. After a show-stopping performance, Jujubee claimed to not be able to breathe. Either due to the fear of being eliminated or from separation anxiety. I can’t breathe. Luckily, Rupaul decided to keep them both and have four contestants going into the finale. Shantay you both stay. The friends ended up placing second and third again, but at least they did it together. Tyra, Jujubee, Raven. Next week one of you will be crowned the next drag superstar. Number eight: Ongina’s HIV reveal. Ongina, you’re the winner of this challenge. The beautiful thing about this moment was that it was unplanned. Ongina, who appeared on season 1, was so overcome with joy about a challenge win that she gushed about explaining how much the win and obviously being on the show meant given her HIV-positive status. I just wanted to say it. I’ve been always so afraid to say it. I’ve been living with HIV for the last two years of my life and this is so much to me. N: HIV is often still taboo topic. So, it was refreshing for those in the HIV/AIDS community to see someone on TV embrace their status. Ru: You’re a survivor. And baby, you are still in the race. N: Since then, future contestants like Trinity from season six have also been brave enough to admit that they too were HIV-positive. Ongina faced fears head-on and motivated others to follow suit. Ongina… has balls to admit to the world her situation and and I was oh that was a very moving moment. Number seven: Shangela returns. Can I get a big hallelu for Miss Shangela Laquifa Wadley. N: Being the first one to get the boot on any reality show is a total bummer. Just ask Shangela, who appeared briefly on the second season until being eliminated week one. Ooh yes! This is my new Gaga inspired corn-sage. N: So, of course Shangela was estatic when given the opportunity to return and compete again the following season and probably really excited to get to jump out of a box and surprise the other drag queens. Hallelu ladies! N: But judging by the looks on the faces of the rest of the competition not everyone was as happy about it as Shangela was. Merry Christmas. Happy holidays bitches. [laughs] Everybody’s face…gag Number 6: Monica Beverly Hillz comes out as transgender. Also, and your runway as well. I don’t know maybe you’re sad today, or it’s a hard day. You’re kind of disconnected. No one could forget when Sonique came out as transgender in season 2 especially considering it was the first ever on the show. There’s a line between drag and trans- transgender. Most transgender girls do not do drag. N: But Monica’s transgender reveal later on season 5 was more shocking because while Sonique decided to reveal that she was Transitioning during the reunion show, Monica told her fellow contestants and judges during the actual competition. Monica. Tell me what’s on your mind. It’s really chilling There is a leg with my joke I feel [luckier] after winding up in the bottom [two] early on in the competition Monica felt the need to explain her apparent lack of focus leading to the surprising and attention-grabbing revelation. I’m not just a drag weed up Tragic Gendered Woman number [five] the double elimination In season eight we saw two queens go home in the same week. But that wasn’t the first time Rupaul felt that both members at the bottom two were undeserving of the title in season five Honey Mahogany And Vivienne Pinay battled it out to a Britney Spears hit during which neither of them impressed the judges In fact the best part of the Lip-sync battle was a combination of Rupaul’s facial expressions and the other judges Half-Hearted copy afterwards even though it was clear to everyone that both competitors had Lackluster performances that didn’t stop the other drag [queens] and viewers at home from having their jaws dropped to the floor [in] shock I’m sending you both home I’m sorry my dears neither one of you. Showed me the fire it takes to stay. Number four: Roxy’s wig reveal There’s no holding back. There’s no tiptoeing around I have to bring everything. Be warned because what you’re about to witness is without a doubt the fiercest move ever made by a drag queen on the show. Its usually a tragic accident when a performers wig comes off during a lip-sync battle and is almost guaranteed to send them home but for their performance of Whip My Hair Roxy decided to wear a wig under another wig the second of which was promptly shed shocking and delighting everyone in the room especially Rupaul. There’s no holding back. There’s no tiptoeing around I have to bring everything. Despite the killer performance Roxy broke down afterwards about a lifetime of feeling unwanted with Rupaul replying that they were all family. Not a dry eye in the room. You know we as gay people we get to choose our family. You know we get to choose the people that we’re around. You know what I’m saying? I am your family. We are a family here. Number three Chanel eliminates herself [I] already won Season one was automatically a season of firsts since there had never been a TV show quite like Rupaul’s drag race before but the most shocking first came during episode six when contestant Shanel decided to nominate herself for the bottom two, feeling that a lack of praise from Rupaul and the judges was a sign that she wasn’t Good enough to still be on the show. I’m so glad you asked me this question I nominate myself Because I don’t want to be here anyway. Even though everyone reassured Shanel that she was beautiful and loved, Shanel still stood by the nomination and after a mediocre Pperformance in the Lip-sync battle ironically ended up going home. Shanel, even though Your time here has come to an end your contribution to the world of drag is undeniable. Number two Mimi picks up India during Lip-sync Reality TV is all about contestants trying to outshine one another. People are going to take risks but those risks don’t always pay off as evidenced by this next drag queen. From the moment the Lip-sync Battle began Mimi Imfurst was all over the place. Suffering through a difficult wardrobe change, Mimi resorted to trying to block up the competition India Ferrah and even went so far as to pick India up and literally walk her to the back of the stage. Even though the judges were probably dying up laughter on the inside They had no choice, but to eliminate the hopelessly unprofessional Mimi. [I] don’t agree with The judges since I don’t think I should have been on the bottom two before we reveal the most shocking moment on the show Here are a few honorable mentions. I’m crying because there’s a lot of emotions. [Dela] Girl, I love you, and I expect great things from you is the cream always rises to the top down Sashay away I Wanted a sugar Daddy Yes
I probably go ahead and get [one] because I am what? Sickening. You could never have a sugar daddy because you are not that kind of girl. Maybe everything I’ve had I worked for and I’ve gotten myself. I built myself from the ground. I feel very attacked! Relax Relax relax I’m numb from the waist down tuck included. I really could die bitch. I’m giving you realness. She’s got a smaller waist than Barbie. Oh, don’t sneeze honey. It’s all gonna [puff] amazing word Yesterday if I pick her up, we’re going to an interview And I see they’re not what you gotta cover those up. [well] a big trend in queens these days are those latex boobs I don’t like the way they look. Those aren’t breasts. These are breasts. [oh] Girls these are betty you don’t have to tell me twice Number one: Willam gets disqualified. So, I tried to throw up off the stage. Even if you’ve never seen an episode of Rupaul’s Drag Race you probably know who Willam Belli is. Willam was a reoccurring actor on the show Nip/Tuck and has a Youtube channel with over half a million subscribers. Where he posted the viral parody video of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire” called “Boy is a Bottom” But before that he was on the fourth season of Rupaul’s show where he famously did two things: One threw up on stage and two was disqualified from the competition for breaking the rules on more than one occasion. Willam I have to ask you to leave the competition immediately. To make matters more scandalous, Willam allegedly broke the rules on purpose because he thought it would make the show more entertaining. Well played. So in other words you were receiving conjugal visit from your husband and unfortunately that was a violation of the rules. Visiting makes us sound like we were visiting and there was no talking. Do you agree our list? Disco bloodbath, What Rupaul’s drag race moment made you gasp now y’all is very dry. It’s almost kind of like [your] vagina For more entertaining top 10s published every day be sure to subscribe to miss mojo Rupaul is so old that the hindenburg disaster nearly destroyed her bat Mitzvah you
