Ho Canada!

Canada’s Drag Race, Canada’s Drag Race 2, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Once again, the gay Gods are keeping us fed as yet another franchise returns to our screens in the form of Canada’s Drag Race.

Remember those quaint early years when there was such a thing as an off season?

While we’re tragically losing Queen Stacey McKenzie and zaddy Jeffrey from the panel, I have faith that Brooke will still be able to serve us another season of the meatiest Canadian bacon ever.

So strap in or on, whatever you’d prefer, and get ready to be dazzled by the lights of the north. Hopefully with even more denim, Celine, poutine and the Pit Crew most likely to flood my basement and leave me dripping.

Check back next week as we’re joined by the first queen to get the boot.

But really, UK hun?

Let me start by saying, I am trying real hard to stop myself from just writing every lyric and my fingers are hovering precariously of b, i, n, g, a and o. I mean, it isn’t really relevant in the slightest but I at least want the fact I am not giving in to temptation acknowledged.

But that isn’t why you’re here, is it?

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is back and well, that seems like something to celebrate based on their killer previous seasons. Plus it has been a ‘ella va’year and we could all use some right, camp fun.

And well if you don’t like it – the cheek, the nerve, the gall, the audacity and the gumption! – we’ll still be writing about it, so apologies in advance, babes.

It’s a new dawn – but is it FFGC Sierra or Thomas?

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Survivor, Survivor 41, TV, TV Recap

After the world’s longest off season, which TBH, could easily be a phrase used to describe the pandemic, Survivor is back. And while we all feel like survivors just for getting through the day at this point – looking at you Melbourne, with your lockdown/earthquake combo yesterday – having dear Jiffy Pop back on the screen will perk us up collectively.

While the thankfully themeless Survivor 41 is a shorter season due to Ms Rona, Survivor is Survivor and we’ve been promised a new dawn. Which makes me shiver with anticipation, rather than concern.

So once again, buckle in, sit back and get ready for the madness of our coverage as I join the castaways post-boot to offer culinary comfort and casual chastising.

Who will be the first to go? Well watch the show and then check back here next Wednesday!

Who’s going to Cloncurry the most favour?

Australian Survivor, Australian Survivor: Brains V Brawn, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, TV, TV Recap

It feels like forever since we’ve had the glorious guns of my dear Jonathan LaPaglia on our screens, doesn’t it? Thankfully the painfully long, briefly Osher-replaced absence is over as the latest battle royale of Australian Survivor returns in mere hours.

And oh yes, you better believe that like Big Kev before me, I’m excited!

This year we’re trading out Champions for Brawn and Contenders with Brains, to find out who will reign supreme. And more importantly, we’ll soon find out which ripped, straight guy will win me over despite my usual tastes – aka powerful, sassy icons like Shonee, Fenella, Shane, Sandra, Tina, Cirie, Pia, JaQueen et al – all because of a little nudie run?

(Hey, it worked for Chappies on Survivor South Africa but a few weeks ago and it will work again).

Thankfully despite the myriad of restrictions, I was once again able to lounge around the bush with JLP awaiting the cast to exit the game one-by-one, with only the comfort one of my meals can provide.

Who will be joining me tomorrow as they join the First Boot Club? You know the drill, head to 10 to watch the show and then check back tomorrow for all the glorious deets.

G’day, g’day, g’day

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under 1

In the words of the great Colleen, yoo hoo, only me. Remember me? Yes, no, alright, let me tell you a little tale about where I have been and most importantly, why.

It all started some 18 months ago. A cheetoh was President of the United States, Joe Exotic wasn’t a global lifestyle brand and we were not yet afraid of cornova. But then 2020 happened and who do you think was called upon to save it? Little old me. Famed diplomat, fake doctor/lawyer/influencer and celebrity hanger on.

Tragically the UN quickly realised I was neither qualified nor remotely competent to hold down any and all paying jobs and I was sent back to Australia on a cruise ship. I then bounced around the ocean for a couple of months, terrified I would have to talk to strangers, before landing in Brisbane and promptly cryogenically freezing myself for 12 months in the hope the pandemic would end while I was down under.

But alas, it didn’t. But that does bring me to my next point.

I awoke to a tonne of missed calls, pleading messages and irate voicemails from Ru and Michelle, begging me to join them across the ditch and help welcome the Down Under queens into the family.

“Ben, it has long been known that you have the Perth-onality, but I can’t take this attitude anymore – answer your damn phone and assure me you’re coming!”

Coincidentally, I was.

“BEN, I am in a Christ-church, praying, begging on my Syd-knees that you will join us in Auckland. Do NOT be the Bris-BANE of my EXISTENCE”

Long story short – well shorter than it could have been – I called Ru back, hopped on the next plane and vowed to return to the internet once again and celebrate our queens, down under. Because their tucks are tight.

Who will be the first sheila to sashay away? Watch the damn show! Like Brittany Murphy, I’ll never tell … until next week.
