Queen of the Day-Um

Reality TV gets a bad rap, and usually for good reason. Fortunately for us tube-addicts, most shows aren’t as ridiculous as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Sure, RuPaul’s Drag Race can be pretty over the top (especially when queens imitate celebrities in “The Snatch Game”). But who doesn’t love seeing an extra-fabulous Paris Hilton or a Puerto Rican queen's attempt at imitating Amy Winehouse’s British accent?

The show’s fifth season promises more fabulosity than ever thanks to the bevy of drag queens competing for the honor of being crowned America’s next drag superstar. These fierce divas show their skills by making their own glamorous outfits, posing in photo shoots, and lip-synching for their lives – all to hang in there for another week of the same. The Rock will celebrate the season with a weekly RuPaul’s Drag Race viewing party that includes karaoke, bingo, and snacks.
