On the premiere episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, contestant Akashia proved to be one to watch when she stripped down to a thong after a photo shoot, then stood around jiggling her silicone breasts.
The show, which is part America's Next Top Model and part Project Runway, features nine contestants, competing to be the "America's next drag superstar." (don't have LOGO? You can watch online!) The first challenge was a photo shoot, in which the contestants were doused — drowned, really, in water. The second challenge was "drag on a dime," in which the ladies had to create runway ensembles from thrift store clothes and "crap" from the 99¢ store. The judges included fashion journalist Merle Ginsberg, Project Runway's Santino Rice, and famed designer Bob Mackie. At the end of the show, in a sort of showcase showdown, the two worst contestants had to "lip sync for their lives" to RuPaul's "Supermodel." Ru's advice? "Don't fuck it up." A reader emailed us to point out that when Ru was judging, "she says the wannabe Drag Superstars will be judged on 'Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent' ...CUNT?!?!" In any case, Akashia was in the bottom two, but Victoria Porkchop Parker — the only plus-sized contestant — was eliminated instead.
