(What the what? Well, I like American Ninja Warrior [though the Japanese was better] and I like RuPaul’s Drag Race [though it peaked at season 4], and while there may not be a huge overlap in their fandoms, since they overlap in me I figured I would mash them up, in as much as my Photoshop* skills allow.)
From the land of the rising sun, 100 determined drag queens have accepted the challenge to become… Ninja Warrior. Competitors face the ultimate test of shade and will in their quest to become champion. Many are called, few are chosen. Now, let’s find out who’s tough enough to become the next: Ninja Warrior.
Several queens from the past have returned to take on Mt. Midoriyama. In the last episode, 30 queens took on the challenge of the brutal first stage obstacles, but every one was eliminated. The next 30 challengers are lining up at the starting gate.
Up next: if she’s not your favorite queen, then you have no soul. It’s only LATRICE “MOTHERFUCKING” ROYALE!
From everyone’s favorite queen to another person who was on the show, it’s Laganja Estranja!

And our final competitor. From such films as Screech of the Decapitated, Ticked-Off Trannies with Knives, and The Lego Movie (as one of those weird three-prong Lego blocks that nobody uses), it’s Willam!
Grabs it with her mouth and swings to safety! I don’t know why I’m using an exclamation point there; I don’t think there’s anyone on the planet who’s surprised that she was able to do that with her mouth and beard. But anyhow, she completes the course and moves on.
Today, 30 more challengers battled the difficult first stage, but 28 met heartbreaking defeat. Only two queens achieved the near-impossible, crossing the finish line in time. Will anyone else join them in stage two? Stay with us for more smudged mascara… more sickening fashion… and more… Ninja Warrior!
* Not really Photoshop. Since I don’t have Photoshop, I use the free Gimp software and my decidedly limited abilities to do a sad approximation of the same thing. I don’t want to know what Willam would say about that.
