In week two of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3, the challenge was a throwback to VH1’s Diva’s Live: A Salute to RuPaul. The all-stars would be performing some of Ru’s greatest hits vas a different iconic diva in a lip synch extravaganza! Here who they were assigned: Milk (Celine Dion), Kennedy (Janet Jackson), Aja (Amy Winehouse), Chi Chi (Patty Labelle), Trixie (Dolly Parton), Shangela (Mariah Carey), Thorgy (Stevie Nicks), Ben (Julie Andrews), BeBe (Diana Ross). In the end the top two were BenDeLaCreme and Shangela, and the bottom two were Thorgy and Kennedy. Ben and Shangela performed “Jump” by the Pointer Sisters for their Lip Synch for their Legacy and in the end Shangela won and sent home Thorgy. It was once again a pleasure to sit down and interview, the one and only Thorgy Thor:
How has your life changed since you were on Drag Race?
The working is great, and the fans are amazing. I auditioned for eight years in a row, and I finally got chosen and it changed my life just as I thought it would, Also, the extra money is great!
What has been some of your favorite cities to visit as RuPaul Alumni?
Australia is so beautiful, so anywhere is that country I love. I did a bunch of tours over there, and I want to go back every single day! In the states, I love San Francisco and would love to move there. I also loved Austin, Texas.
How exciting was it to get called back for All Stars? Did you consider not coming back, and if so what made you come back?
I kind of had a feeling that I would be on the list of potential people to come back, and I immediately said yes and then said when do I come? I was excited.
How did you prepare differently for all stars than you did the first time you were on the show?
I thought I was going into a less stressful environment but I was wrong. I was far more stressed out. I tried to enjoy it more but I put more pressure on myself.
Now that you have been eliminated, who do you want to win?
I’m voting for Shangela. She sent me home, but I don’t hold any animosity. I think she is brilliant and a great actor, and can talk herself out of anything! I am genuinely rooting for her!
What’s ahead for Thorgy?
My “Thorchestra” is coming along nicely. I got 600 emails in the last few weeks about people wanting to be a part of it. It’s coming together in a big way and I promise my fans it will be amazing. Trixie has agreed to be one of the soloists.
Is there anything I didn’t ask you that you want to talk about?
Yes…I got sent home for Stevie Nicks. I would have liked to have more artistic control of the number I was sent home for. Unfortunately they edited out what I really said. They aired me saying “Stevie Nicks is not a gay icon,” and what I really said was, ”Stevie Nicks is not a gay icon that will allow me to win this challenge amongst all these divas in a gay drag queen show.”
