Not One! Not Two! But THREE Rupaul Drag Race Stars
ONGINA Season 1 RuPaul's Drag Race
Ongina (born Ryan Ong Paolo) is a Drag Queen from Los Angeles, California. She was part of the 1st Cast of RuPaul's Drag Race and was eliminated on episode 5.
Ongina was best known on RuPaul's Drag Race for her sweetness, her fashionable runway presentations, and for coming out to the world about being diagnosed with HIV.
One of Ongina's most memorable performances was doing a lapdance for a straight man for his birthday in Alabama, at a restaurant Ongina worked at. The man knew he was at a drag show and had fun with it. However, when Ongina did a flip-over on the man's body, her wig fell off.
Ongina's view of Drag as an artistic expression, as an outlet for a woman stuck in a gay man's body to come out and let loose. She views drag as liberating to perform and transform her imagery of performing into reality.
Ongina's view of performing is that the energy, the creativity of picking the song, the outfit, the hair, makeup and coming on stage living is amazing.
In her introduction video for RuPaul's Drag Race, she described herself as Lady, Amazing and Fantastic. As the queens were required to describe 3 words about themselves.
MORGAN MCMICHAELS Season 2 RuPauls Drag Race and
Morgan McMichaels was eliminated during the 5th Episode of Season 2 of "RuPaul's Drag Race".
The main challenge was to create a wedding between the queen's male side and female persona, and to create their own bride gowns for the photoshoot and runway presentations.
The queens had to pose for separate pictures, first dressing up as a Groom in a full-on tuxedo, which Morgan put a twist on. He wanted to look separate from the other groom photos, going for a punk-rock look.
Morgan described his groom look as: "He just probably rolled out of bed and threw on a leather jacket and a tie and came to the chapel."
Morgan's bride dress was critiqued as looking too much like a costume, and her bride and groom photo didn't wow the judges.
Therefore, Morgan was sent to the bottom two for a second time, lip-syncing against Sahara Davenport. Sahara's dance moves, and energy during the lip-sync outshined Morgan, and Morgan was sent home.
