In yet another unexpected twist, World of Wonder dropped the bomb that the behind the scenes spin-off series to RuPaul’s Drag Race, Untucked: RuPaul’s Drag Race would be moved from airing on Logo immediately following Drag Race to its YouTube channel WOW Presents the morning after.
Some responses we’ve seen have been negative, others positive. The negative arguments, “I don’t want to wait until the next morning to watch online.” And while the scheduled release will be 9 PM EST, that means for the west coast viewers, who already have the 3 hour wait on Monday night, it evens the playing field. That is if you want to be up at 6 AM PST after you’ve probably been out watching the show with your favorite drag pals and dancing afterward at the club. Heck, maybe you’ll still be up from the turn up. While the west coast has to wake up early to get that worm, it means that those on the east coast who start work at 8 AM will have to sneak their online usage to watch the show. Or if you have the self control or don’t need to see Untucked as it “airs” one click and you can watch away.
The positive comments have been, “great because I don’t have Logo.” This gives the international and non-cable or “selective providers” that don’t have Logo as part of their lineup a chance to watch what happens without having to illegally obtain the feed. It also gives you the opportunity to hear what happens without any censors or commercials. “This is the viewer’s chance to see what really goes on behind-the-scenes at RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s not just untucked – it’s uncensored, unhinged, and unapologetic, bitch. Just like Madonna,” said World of Wonder founders Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato⇑.
One thing is for sure, RuPaul and the World of Wonder folks are not going to miss one single opportunity to tease the hell out of this season. From the Snapchat clues of the cast, to the change in the scheduled release of the season premiere date, this season is definitely full of twists and turns and it hasn’t even started. But get this, by our calculations, the newly announced Drag Con, the first ever Drag Convention being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on May 16-17, should be the weekend before the announcement of Season 7’s winner. If that’s not brilliant… it’s brilliant, the end.
Tune in Monday, March 2 at 9/8 CT on Logo to watch the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race then check out WOW Presents on Tuesday morning at 9 EST for Untucked in a new format. Let us know what you think, there are so many changes so far, how do you like it?
Well maybe not.
Take a good look at what’s happening these next couple of weeks. While the UK is Ru-watching Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Netflix, Mama Ru is taking her queens from Season 7 around the United States, while her former cast is Battling it out on Battle Of The Seasons. Meanwhile, Logo is pumping advertisement after advertisement that Season 7 starts in just over a week. As if that weren’t enough, World of Wonder announced that they would be hosting the first ever Drag Convention in Los Angeles, California in May, right about the time when we’ll find out who the top 3 or 4 are being revealed or possibly even the next drag superstar is crowned.
Let’s not forget, Covergurlz 2 released a couple weeks ago and we’re already getting “New York City Beat” crammed into our heads by watching the tons of WOW Presents webseries “Alyssa’s Secret,” “Bro’Laska,” “Really Queen?,” “Dirty Dish,” “Fashion Photo RuView,” “Ring My Bell,” “Raja Drawja,” “Cher Tweets,” “Transformations,” “Living For The Lipsync,” “Milk’s LegenDAIRY Looks,” and Delta’s new show “Dear Delta.” Obviously, RuPaul is among the best marketing packages in the world. She’s among the likes of Disney, let’s see a Ru World please. Those would be some Extra special rides and some fierce entertainment with charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
Thank you RuPaul (if you ever see this), you made this thing called drag a more respected and accepted form of art. You’ve given those who didn’t know what to do with this overwhelming feeling of dressing up in a way that is counter to what society calls normal absolutely fabulous and sought after. You’ve set a great example of what you can do despite struggle and not fitting the mold of what success looks like.

If you’re sensitive to crude, racial and edgy, don’t watch this. Otherwise you’ve been warned.
The looks Alyssa makes are hilarious.
Coco, consider your bell rung!
If they stopped being sexual about things… .
It’s Miss Manners meets drag during a time when common sense and kindness are at an all time low.
In the meantime, let’s just watch Bianca talk sh!t about Bunny.
Making sure all the oats are felt by the crowd.
