Ranking the House Down:
 The Queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race, from Worst to Best (Part Six: The Top 10!)

By Gregory Rosebrugh | /Bent February 24, 2014 at 11:56AM

In anticipation of the sixth season of Rupaul’s Drag Race, we have decided to rank all sixty queens from the first five seasons over six posts leading up to the premiere tonight... This edition takes on the top 10!.

Latrice Royale
3. Latrice Royale (Season 4, 4th place) 

We are all aware that Alyssa Edwards is getting her own spin-off TV show, but all I want to know is when this big ole’ queen is getting her book deal because I could lead my life by “The Gospel According to Latrice Royale”. In season four there were countless What-Would-Latrice-Do moments: “BMW: Body Made Wrong;” “Five Gs: Good God, Get a Grip Girl;” “BITCH: Being In Total Control of Herself;” “Jesus is a biscuit, let him sop you up;” and “No T, no shade,” just to name a few. And of course the wisdom of Latrice Royale was not for nothing. This fierce legend had withstood adversity of almost Biblical proportions before competing on Drag Race. The thought of one’s closest family member, of any qualification, while separated from that loved one by a prison sentence—that’s a nightmare come true. Hence the feeling of justice restoring to the universe when we saw Latrice rise up in the ranks of season four’s queens, winning two main challenges (“GET THOSE PEANUTS OUT OF MY FACE!”), and destroying a couple queens to the tunes of Gladys and Aretha along the way. Large and in charge, chunky and funky, Latrice Royale will forever be one of the most memorable, fierce and lovable queens of any season of Drag Race. 

Best line: “I want people to realize that it’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to fall down. Get up, look sickening, and make them eat it!”
