What type of Rupaul's drag race contestant are you?

Comedy Queen? Lip Sync Assassin? Someone else? Girl, who even are you? Find out below!

Where to even begin with the glittery, wig-snatching, death-dropping, lip-syncing extravaganza that is RuPaul’s Drag Race? This show isn’t just a cultural phenomenon; it’s basically a high-heeled hurricane that has left sequins and sass all over our collective consciousness!

Imagine explaining Drag Race to someone who’s never seen it before. “So, there’s this show where drag queens—think of them as hyper-glamorous superheroes—compete in everything from sewing haute couture out of trash to impersonating celebrities in a game show format. Then they ‘lip-sync for their lives’ to avoid elimination.” Watching their eyebrows navigate between raised and furrowed is a comedy show in itself.

It’s like the Olympics, but instead of medals, you win gagworthy prizes and cash money, baby. This isn’t just a TV show; it’s a movement and cultural force. And as any Drag Race fan will tell you, it’s one that comes with its own vocabulary. Seriously, how many shows make you fluent in phrases like “Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent” and “shantay, you stay”?

Let’s break down the ludicrously fun elements:

Runway Challenges: These queens manage to turn trash into treasures. I’m convinced some of them could make a couture gown from a paperclip and a roll of duct tape.

Snatch Game: Where else do you see perfect impressions of Cher, Beyoncé, and Donald Trump all competing like they’re at the world’s most glamorous high school talent show?

Drama: If you’re craving more drama than a Real Housewives reunion, then the werk room is your new happy place. Be prepared for tears, tantrums, and enough shade to eclipse the sun.

Lip Sync Battles: Forget singing; just try syncing your lips perfectly to a pop diva’s song, while simultaneously performing cartwheels in 6-inch stilettos. These battles are often life-and-death artistic performances where splits and wig reveals can become the stuff of legends.

It’s not just entertainment; Drag Race has challenged perceptions, breaking down barriers around gender and identity, but in the most abulous way possible. So, the next time you hear someone quote RuPaul or you see someone flawlessly execute a death drop at a party, just remember: you’re witnessing the sparkling influence of a show that didn’t just “shantay”, it slayed its way into history.

There’s been a myriad of different types of queens on the show but most can be put into a few categories. Now you can see what type of queen you would be by taking our personality test below:
