Top 10 RuPaul’s Drag Race Queens

Sashay, shantay panthers on the runway! Welcome to Msmojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 RuPaul’s Drag Race Queens.

For this list, we’ll looking at the most memorable queens to be featured on the reality competition TV series. But we’ll obviously be omitting Mama Ru, because that just wouldn’t be fair, would it?

#10: Raven

Whether you think she was robbed twice or shouldn’t have even made top 3, there’s no denying that this dark damsel is drop-dead gorgeous. On season 2 she lost out just by a hair to glamour queen Tyra, but unlike Tyra, Raven’s post-show career took flight, with every queen clamoring for her contour secrets and sultry style. She may not be a singer, and she may not be a comedian per se, but Raven can sell one thing perfectly: sex. Every time she hits the runway it’s a total toot from stiletto to the tip of her contoured nose, hunny!

#9: Latrice Royale

From a childhood in Compton to a few years in the slammer to an international glamazon, Latrice is, in her own words “chunky yet funky”. Latrice has the biggest heart and the best big-queen looks of any other contenders. She also happens to be the preacher of the gospel of the 5 Gs: good god get a grip girl. Everything about her is hard not to love, from her deep, throaty laugh to her unshakeable confidence – but really there is quite a lot of her to love.

#8: D-E-T-O-X

Detox has admitted that nearly every single part of her body has been redone except for her nose. That means face, abs, legs and maybe even ears. Detox features her expensive body mods every chance she gets, with keen emphasis on her most important ‘ass’et. She’s little crass, a little goofy, and a lot loveable, but cross her and she will have had it. Officially. She serves up that barbie bodiodyody all the better with her impeccable fashion, each look good enough for a real fashion week runway. As she says herself on All Stars 2, " when it comes to the runway, I pissed all over that thing."

#7: Alyssa Edwards

In the words of Katya, Alyssa Edwards is the most memorable creature to ever walk through the doors of the RuPaul's Drag Race workroom. Mother of the Haus of Edwards, inventor of the tongue pop, and keeper of Alyssa's secret, mother Edwards has twirled, kicked, and most importantly death-dropped her way into the hearts and Instagram feeds of every fan of RuPaul's Drag Race. Much like Tammie Brown, all Alyssa really needs to do is bulge those big eyes to get the people laughing. Her larger-than-life personality is drag queendom at its finest.

#6: Raja

It was clear right from her entrance look that this queen was something special. Likely the most undisputed winner to ever grace the mainstage, Raja Gemini mixes high fashion style with high drag sensibilities. Her eye for beauty and expert runway walk are the stuff of legend, serving us a platter of unique fishy realness that still manages to read as drag. As we all know, it takes more than fishiness to win drag race, and Raja’s ability to rise to the challenges week after week is what set her apart from the competition. In her post drag race career, she’s become a YouTube staple along with Raven in Fashion Photo RuView. She can serve a look, she can walk a runway, and she can read you to filth. Too bad she can’t sing.

#5: Chad Michaels

She’s Cher, Bitch! Chad Michaels built an illustrious career off of celebrity impersonations, with her Cher mock-up being the crème of her crop. Chad ain’t a queen that needs to show for a dollar; Chad is a professional, and she’s not afraid to let you know. Winner of first season of All Stars, Chad is part of the pumped-with plastic school of drag. She may be a well-seasoned queen but you’d never know it from her well-preserved face. Though some haters may think “she about to die”, mother dust will live forever in the drag race hall of fame.

#4: Sharon Needles

There are few queens that can boast having changed the game quite as much as Sharon Needles. The "Party City" queen of cartoonish spook, Sharon describes herself in three words; beautiful, spooky and stupid. She brought her brand of nauseating charm to the main stage and slaughtered the competition with a weekly campaign of shock, gore, and glamor. Going up against showgirls like Phi Phi and Chad only served to highlight what makes this queen really pop. It’s no wonder that she was dating Alaska at the time, because the gab on this girl was always gag-worthy.

#3: Jinkx Monsoon

Jinkx is a little narcoleptic and a bit tself-deprecating, but all loveable. Though she can’t walk down the runway quite as smoothly as water off a duck’s back, water off a duck’s back. Seattle's youngest MILF is quite the card. With her endless supply of characters she seems to just pull from thin air, Jinkx won over the drag race audience in Season 5 with her heartwarming underdog storyline and and survived a whole lotta shade. She showed us that the key to the crown was doing your very best, applying main stage criticism to your drag, and turning it out challenge after challenge.

#2: Bianca Del Rio

She doles out insult comedy at its finest. Bianca is the only queen that really knows the true meaning of shade. When the library is open, Bianca can read a girl to filth, flipping effortlessly through her rolodex of hate but still somehow keep it light and entertaining. Not only that, but she’s also a master seamstress, flaunting her talents frequently, notably with her impeccable head-to-toe glitter look for the season 7 finale. Her dresses may often have the same silhouette, but when it works it works. Reality show villainy never looked so fierce.

But before we get to our top pick, here are some honorable mentions:

Katya Zamolodchikova

Willam Belli

Bob the Drag Queen

#1: Alaska

Say hiieeee to our number one queen. Even from her entrance line on season 5, Alaska Thunderf*** 5000 made her mark in the drag race hall of fame. She might have lost out to Jinkx, but that didn’t stop her from taking her newfound reality star fame and running with it all the way to the bank. And did we mention she won All Stars 2? With a hit music career, sold out shows, and even a brief cameo as a guest on season 7, Alaska just keeps pissing out hits. And that IS her hair...she don't wear wigs, and her makeup? Never terrible. That's the T.
