According to Trinity the Tuck, the queens were negatively critiqued on the stage of Drag Race All Stars 7.

The season, which collects some of the fiercest winners from the show’s herstory, has been met with overwhelming praise from viewers and critics for the sheer amount of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent on display, as well as RuPaul’s decision to not eliminate any of the contestants.

All Stars 7 has also been commended for its new approach to judging. Unlike past seasons, the panel – which consists of Ru, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews – have been reluctant to offer constructive criticism towards their performances and runway presentations, instead showering them with endless praise.

While a majority of viewers have welcomed this optimistic change, saying it creates a more positive and celebratory environment for the queens, there are a select few who have not reacted kindly to it.

On 10 July, Trinity asked her followers if they think the format of All Stars 7 should be applied to future seasons because it allows the contestants more “screen time”, as well as the chance to showcase all of their ensembles.

One fan agreed with the All Stars 4 winner, but said the judging panel need to “give some criticism” and “not just positive vibes”.

The fan continued to explain that they “live for moments when someone’s fantasy is destroyed” by the panel, particularly Michelle, which prompted Trinity to reveal that scenes such as this were filmed but didn’t make the final cut.

“They did,” said Trinity. “Not sure why they edited it out.”

Trinity’s original tweet elicited a passionate response from fans and Drag Race alumni, with BenDeLaCreme stating that she would’ve “stuck” around for the third season of All Stars if the format was introduced sooner.

Cheryl Hole, Deja Skye and Denali also agreed, as well as Silky Nutmeg Ganache, who responded: “I wouldn’t mind that. I can’t wear any look from All Stars 6 that I didn’t wear. The trauma. Lol.”

Bob the Drag Queen simply replied “no” while Bosco, seemingly not in favour of the panel’s constant praise, said she needs to see “bloodshed and tears”.

The seventh season of All Stars also sees the return of legendary champions Raja, Jinkx Monsoon, Jaida Essence Hall, Yvie Oddly, Monét X Change, Shea Couleé and The Vivienne.
