There was the family of Mrs. Ropers challenging the Hotlanta Rubber Group in a fun and racy game of Family Feud. I mean really, when asked, "What is something you eat in bed?" one of the top answers is, of course, "ass." Well, when the crowd surveyed is a bunch of gay men at least.
The Big Gay Game Show — held on the third Wednesday of each month at Jungle — benefits the Lost-n-Found organization that helps homeless LGBT youth. And this month, on Sept. 19, the debut of Dragnificent followed the Big Gay Game Game Show with host Nicole Paige Brooks and judges Phoenix (who is also producing the show), Edie Cheezburger and Nina Flowers of "RuPaul's Drag Race" fame.
Contestants for the first night were asked to express who they are. Competing in order of appearance were: Princess Vanessa, Aliya Sexton, Prima Alexandra, Arriana Paris, Tanyla Cassadine, Evah Destruction, Jai' Na Devereaux, Zaria Bonet Valentino, Peyton Elizabeth, Alexandra Knowles and Daniella Vess.
Tips to the contestants were also donated to Lost-n-Found.
The big winner of the night was Evah Destruction while Tanyla Cassadine was the first to be booted from the contest in which the audience votes for who it likes the best.
Next week the contestants will compete in the music theme, with those seeking the title choosing from such genres as rock-n-roll, hip hop, Broadway and country and western.
Closing out the night was a performance by Edie Cheezburger, who won last year's Dragnique competition, followed by the amazing Nina Flowers, who wowed the crowd and collected fistfuls of dollars from thrilled fans.
