Miss Candi Shell mentioned on her Facebook page that she has received enough votes to move on to round two of casting for the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Although she moved to New York with her band She-Dick last year, we hope she doesn’t forget her Dallas roots. Heck, she was only “born” here.
The man behind the woman, Dan Paul Roberts, has a few things to fall back on in case drag superstardom doesn’t work out. Yesterday, he debuted his first New York art show at the SIP Lounge. And if he’s not busy with that, there is also the solo album he released back in February. (Ed. note: Yeah. I don’t feel bad about myself at all.)
Two other local dragsters are in the running as well. Right now, Dallas’ Daxclamation leads the other ladies with 82 votes. Fort Worth’s Mis Sadistic has 52. Candi Shell trails with 44 votes at this time. But all three are way off from the lead. New York’s Mimi Imfurst is looking like a shoo-in with her 6,187 votes.
