Let’s hope you’re ready to stop listening on repeat “UK Hoon” and start jamming “Queens Down Under”. Like any good weather RuPaul’s Drag Race, Our australian favorite Pull the race down Brought heat to the Girl Group Challenge. With some inspiration drag raceThe resident musician Leyland and singer-songwriter Troye Sivan, the girls left it all on stage.
. . . . Well, some of them Forgot Even to get it on stage to start, but we’ll get to that in a moment. But it was one hell of an upgrade from last week’s disastrous snatch game, so we’ll take it. Take a look at Three and a Half Men and Outback Fakehose and see who’s going platinum, and who’s going home.
Unpleasant songs and unpleasant performances? Check
The reason for the challenges of these group of girls to be some of the best is because of how unpleasant the queens are. They are allowed to show themselves, because the whole point of the song is to introduce them to the real world. And if you think Australian queens are going to skimp, then you are wrong.
Every verse of “Queens Down Under” was a straight fire, every cheek on stage was gorgeous, and majority of Choreography was pleased. Although it was strange to see, Maxi Shield crawling across the floor during her poem AF was hilarious.
Threatened with gleaming ink
Now, abstinence is not new in the workroom. Since season one drag race, We have seen queens move to lower levels to score higher. But leaving threatening notes? This is a new one. On Elimination Day, Coco arrives in the Jumbo Workroom and is greeted by a beautiful note that just says “Watch Out”.
Now Coco is convinced that Art Simone is warning her about her future, but the ink is the same color the girls of the three-and-a-half men were using the previous day. This time will tell who was the real author of the note. And we will be waiting with paused breath. 4
Never sing for real
Look, Coco Jumbo is cute, a style icon, and honestly it should stay Pull the race down Compared to Electra Shock who used the challenge to show himself better. But Coco clearly forgot rule number one in the musical challenges: Tax. No. sing. if. You. can not do. sing. There is a reason why drag shows involve lip syncs and not actual performances.
Still, we are sad to see Coco Sachet away. We got a chance to talk with Coco to get tea at the Outback Fakehose and what drag means to her. You can read our full interview with Coco Jumbo below.
How did you first get into drag?
Well in my hometown of Coffs Harbor, it was like a drag competition where, like, many old men would get into their wives’ clothes and buy simple wigs and then just come on stage and dance. And the prize money was $ 800, so me and my friend decided to enter, and I won the competition.
Then after that there was an entertainment manager for a festival and he asked me to perform at the festival. And then after that, I was asked to perform in Mardi Gras and then it kept growing and growing and growing.
Why did you audition for it Pull the race down, And what was your reaction when you came in?
Oh, I didn’t even know that I was auditioning drag race. In New Zealand this is a TV show named House of drag, Which means kita and anita [Wigle’t] The host. And I felt that I was auditioning for it, because it was based in New Zealand. Then during the interview, he asked who I would do in the snatch game.
And I was like, “Wait, Snatch Games is the one” RuPaul’s Drag Race Thing, “and they’re like,” Yeah. . . . “I like,” Oh, is it for this drag race?! “And they are like” yes “. I was like” Oh my god, how embarrassing! Like, oh my can we start again? ”
So I completely thought that I bombed the interview. Then when I got to accept the call, I was like, I was in the lounge room with my housemates around me and I liked, I had excitement and then ran to my bedroom and into a pillow. Screamed.
So it seems that you just woke up one day and accidentally made a name for yourself in Australian drag, which is great.
Yes a little bit. Like most of my life, I just wake up and go with the flow.
After sending Art Simone home last week, it seemed that you might be the lip sync killer this season. Did you feel the same?
Yes of course Like Sydney, this is an amateur drag night called Drag for Dollars. And once, like years and years and years ago, Art Simone came and she entered the competition and I won and I beat her.
So, when I went up against Art Simone again, I was like, “I’ve got this in the bag, it’s going to be okay. I’ve done that before.” Performing is like my main thing. Just going against the electra [Shock] Was unexpected.
Why did you choose to sing instead of rap during your poem in “Queens Down Under”?
So on the sheets of the song, it was said that some parts were to be sung and some other parts were rapped. So I just stayed on what the sheet said and decided to sing. Of course everyone else was rapping so I panicked. I thought, “Okay, let’s turn this into a bridge to the song.”
Did you ever know who wrote the note?
um no. I thought it should be art. Yes, no one else would have done it, and it would not have happened [Zaho].
What did you take away from your short time Pull the race downThe
I really do not know. This was my first time doing a TV show, like being part of something big like this. I am starting this new adventure as everything is broadcast. Like with kicking out now, I’m just excited to see what happens next and what happens next.
Speaking of what’s next, what’s coming for Coco Jumbo?
I’m not really doing much, like my regular weekly chores, like the show with Maxi on Saturday nights. Yes, we are wandering.
Pull the race down On Saturdays, it airs on WOWPresents Plus in the US and other select regions, Stan in Australia, TVNZ On Demand in New Zealand and BBC Three in the UK.
