With one backward roll, the contestant, Miss Cairo, who has already fallen on to the stage, cutting her leg, comes completely "untucked".Her genitals fling out near the faces of the audience.As the interview approaches, evidence of how Ru Paul Andre Charles dominates to ensure success flutters into view. Another glances at Lynzy before returning to me: "Oh. No one told me that." I had rung her colleague to inform them.
We begin where we are supposed to: talking about Drag Race, which has been bought by the British version of the Tru TV channel to air the most recent four seasons.
Instead, "the worst things that have ever happened to me have come from inside my own house". There's a certain graceful surrender the prey takes on, like, 'OK.
There we are.'" His shield, it seems, is working even now.
Some of us double over in hysterical laughter, others turn away in embarrassment, and, then – because what else can you do? This is perhaps not the start to Drag Race in Britain that organisers had hoped for.
Ru Paul, judging the proceedings with Jonathan Ross and Katie Price, brings a hand up to cover his mouth. Miss Cairo does not win, strangely – what more could we want from drag than blood loss and flying testicles?
