    1. everybody knows eva couldve done better. but rajo was unnecessarily harsh it almost seemed like he was out to get him

    2. Theres a nicer way to say that you hate her outfit, 8:29. Below the belt n kasi ang pinagsasabi nya. Even westerners n kung mas blunt and hasher sila doon ay not impress with it. Worse, even Drag race alumni ay nainsulto s way nang pagcritique nya.

    3. 9:51 sa art industry kasi karamihan harsh talaga mga criticism ng mga tao doon to push you more at iimprove ang sarili mo. Dapat di ka balat sibuyas

    1. Nanood ka ba? Criticism is okay. Saying it in a way that’s hurtful and demeaning is not.

    2. How about Simon?

  4. Daming sensitive masyado. Judges at TV competitions before used to have harsher comments. ANTM, American Idol, Project Runway during its earlier seasons to name a few.

    2. But this show is different. Drag shows don’t focus on what’s on trend like those shows you have mentioned. Humor, production and lip syncs ang important. And part lang yung design challenge.

      Remember that these drag queens reasons why they enter this industry are to just express themselves, be free from restrictions. Kebs kung baduy or out of this world yung branding nila.

    3. Teh 9:25, di naman design competition ang sinalihan ni Eva La Queen. So yung criticism ni Rajo ay out of line.

  5. Mataas ang standards nya and there's nothing wrong with that
    Tama rin naman na a lot of them di naman fashion designers or walang team or money to have outfits na bongga
    Kaya mahirap din ang lugar nila

  6. Love na pala yung mantawag ng trash. Inedit out ba yung constructive criticism na part? Kasi si Kaladkaren lang nakakajustify ng judging nya, though sumemplang din si ateng doon sa for international audience.

    Pilit na pilit kasi pag gaya sa US judging jusq

  7. Sana sumagot contestant ng “at least my design is original not a copycat from an international designer.”

  12. He was like that during Runway Philippines. Sila ni Apples Aberin. I find no objectivity in his criticisms. Parang mema na lang

    1. Theres another way to state truth. You dont need to be mean pra magsabi ng totoo. If Rajo really care or love these contestants, he would not say these words.

      Delete
    2. There’s a way to speak the truth so that it is constructive and not just plain insulting or arrogant. We’re forgetting the other truth which is this show happened at the height of the pandemic where the contestants sorely lacked budget and resources.

  14. Relate I'm a type of person na walang sugarcoating madalas ako maka offend and I know that and people think na masama ugali ko dahil lang nagsasabi ako ng totoo. Sanay kasi sila na puro praises sila kahit plastick pakinnggan.

    1. Being real doesn't always mean being rude. Magkaiba yon.

    2. No. There is a nicer way to say things. You can be direct but not rude. Unfortunately for you, you seem to be the latter.

    3. Ganun nga kasi talaga pag walang sugar coating talagang sasabihin ang totoong observation kapag balat sibuyas masasaktan agad haha. Hindi sanay ang mga pinoy dyan kasi gusto nila mabait palagi kahit na panget ang gawa parang plastikan kelangan may pampalubag loob lagi NGEE. Ang nakakatawa pa yung mga beks na to dapat mas matitibay ang mukha kung makaokray din kasi sila sa ibang tao wagas pero pag sila na ang na criticize mga balat sibuyas palaπŸ˜‚. Pumasok ka sa ganyang show ready ka dapat sa lahat ng sasabihin ng judges hindi yung sila pa mag aadjust sa yo at mag aattitude ka pa sa kanila. πŸ™„

    4. minsan parang ginagawang excuse ng masasamang ugali yang "being real" kung alam mong maraming asar sayo ikaw ang problema te. you can be blunt to people but make sure namang hindi ka nagmumukhang arogante, diretsohin mo sila in a nice way baka hindi mo alam psychological trauma na ang binibigay mo sa ibang tao. at syempre ano bang pake mo eh masama ugali mo eh karamihan pa naman sa ganyan ang ugali pikon din pag sila ang nasa ganyang sitwasyon.

  15. Jusko mga taong ito manong hayaan yung judges kaya nga sila kinuha dyan para mag-criticize din. Gusto ata puro papuri. Walang nag-iimprove sa puro papuri.

  16. ang daming sensitive sa mga ito. sumali pa kayo sa competition pero hindi ninyo naman kayang mag-accept ng critique. aysus. i notice that when the competition is peppered too much compliments and praise the contestant that comes out in the end are often mediocre. let's compare it to american idol na lang. during simon cowell's time he maybe rough and unlikable to a lot of people for what he said but it turns out for the better.

  17. Tong mga to balat sibuyas gusto ng fairness at equality pero pag trinato ng totoo gusto special treatment grow the f up!!!

  18. Well he is a judge after all. 🀷‍♂️

  19. Ang OA ng mga snowflake na ito!!! Watch the foreign version of the show and they are even more direct criticism. It’s a competition about style, artistry, performance and whatnot. If you can’t take criticism don’t join or watch the show. The show had always been sassy no place for snowflakes!

    6. easy easy lang sabihin na "constructive" lang yan no pero pag ikaw siguro nasa kalagayan nung contestant baka sumukha ka ng dugo sa stress. ipokrita

  20. To be fair, pangit naman talaga yung kinalabasan. Even sa comments ng ibang queens, di daw nila magets or di nila nagustuhan. When he said I'm being harsh coz I know you can do better, mej nagets ko rin coz Eva's runway were always so glamorous, her taste sa presentations very expensive looking. Akala ko nga kanya tong episode na to. I guess di lang talaga niya forte yung creation and design.

    ReplyDelete
  21. he is speaking from an expert point of view.

  22. I know my point si Rajo pero sana nagback up sya ng details kung bakit nya nasabi na trash at kung anong dapat na ginawa nya sana. Para di ganun kasakit sa tenga.

  23. Pero nagmukha talagang basura yung outfit ni Eva

    1. Alam ko magkaibang bagay. Pero naalala ko tuloy yung sa Idol Philippines, panay sugarcoat and praises ang mga judges. Pero makikita mo before that nagtetext sila at obvious na inaantok sa contestant.

      Balikan niyo ang Star Circle Quest season one. Mas harsh pa magsalita sina Gloria Diaz at Boy Abunda. Swerte lang nila walang Twitter noon.

  28. The difference between this and RuPaul's OG show is that the judges like Ross and Michelle Visage criticize a lot, but they also fill their comments with sarcasm, wit, and cheekiness. So their comments don't come across as vicious, but just plain shade and a "read" on the Queens' performances. Rajo's comments lack grace. Even in ordinary life, people use words like "atrocity" to describe something with the intent to hurt. Telling someone their work is atrocious and ugly is very insulting, that kind of vocabulary doesn't come from a place of love.

    2. Super agree, People here in PH are just used to throwing insults and normazaling it. Also many don't understand the concept of drag race. It's not just an ordinary reality show competition.

    3. Agreeing with this. This is the reason why Santino was removed from the show. They received many complaints how he was being too rude on his critiques to the contestants.

    4. Girl, nasa competition sila hindi counselling. If you want to reach the same level as your inspiration, or even exceed his achievement then you really need to learn it the hard way. But if you want to be mediocre, then you can settle with those who just give you safe comments or feedback. Like Sharon Cuneta kind of feedback.

    5. 1:25 obviously, wala kang alam sa Drag race. Kaya yan ang comment mo.

    6. Paki-explain naman 4:24 bilang mukang expert ka na sa palabas.

    7. 1:25 you're ridiculously ignorant of Drag Race's nature. Who said Drag Race should be a counseling show? You obviously haven't seen RuPaul's OG show to say judges need to be harsh so the contestants don't end up "mediocre". It's clear from your ignorant comment that you don't even know what I'm talking about when I said judges like Ross and Michelle Visage know how to criticize the Queens on their show without putting them down and trashing their work. And really, exceed Rajo Laurel? He's a nobody in the international world. Nobody should learn the hard way to impress him and he doesn't need to be rude and crass just to show how much he cares.

  33. Rajo Laurel fan here. Bases on reading and watching his interviews through the years, I thought his comments came from a place of love and support. Rajo did not call the person X, he viewed the work product as X. Carino brutal, as they say.

  34. maganda yang blunt and honest opinion ang binibigay ng judges hindi yung sugar coat, pa cute cute kasi mga walang silbi yung mga judge kung ganun. Sila sila na lang maglokohan. Yan nga ang spice ng show.

  36. Hay naku, ang dami talagang mga tao na puro "feelings" ang pinapairal, por que "harsh" daw or brutal. Sa real world, wala silang pakelam sa feelings. At sya ang judge, ok. Trabaho nya mang "judge." Kaloka mga to!

  37. Honestly palagay ko its just for publicity for the show. Sympre paguusapan eh.

  38. I worked with Rajo in PRP not gonna tell what season, but he is a nice person inside and out. Though, I agree he might have been a little to harsh on Eva la Queen on this episode. But I know for sure that he said this because he believes Eva la Queen can do way way better on that episode. Harsh words may have thrown out, he did this also during one episode that I am with. But he did all of these to tell the contestants that this is not what they expect from them because they believed in them for doing much capable overall look. But then again, I believe he should issue an apology right directly to Eva.

  39. Bakit kailangan natin manakit kung may pupunahin tayo sa tao? Pwede naman in a good way, hindi yung toxic and negative words na alam nating tatagos sa katauhan ng kinicriticize natin. Asan ang love sa kapwa accla kung ganyan?? Yet we celebrate Pride eme eme.

  43. Pangit ang judging sa drag race philippines kasi sinasali ang kanilang mga opinyon outside the competition, like mga friendships nila sa queens outside the show. Medyo biased and mahaba ang airtime ng judges na nagpapasikat din. Ihambing nyo yung judges sa ibang drag race franchise sa haba ng airtime. Ang haba ng airtime ng judges dito. Honestly nakilala si Rajo kasi siya yung mga naunang ‘fashion’ designers sa Pinas, at Laurel sya. Pero pagdating sa designs...ewan lang. Di rin naman sya sumikat internationally kagaya nila Michael Cinco at Monique Lhullier.

    ReplyDelete
  44. To be honest, nasusuya ako s pagjudge nila kay Turing. Like honestly, laging pinagdidiinan na mataba ka. Oo, mataba sya but nasa era tayo na body positivity. Turing has a talent pero lagi nila tinatabunan na "mataba ka". Sa OG and other international Drag race, weight ay hndi sukatan ng talent mo. Jiggly should brief her fellow judges kasi she experience how the OG judged. Masyadong backward thinker ang mga judges.

    1. 5:02 are you even paying attention? Never naging issue ang pagiging mataba nya. Di lang talaga sya marunong magdesign na makikita yung silhouette nya. Ang pangit nung design nya sa SaGalamazon at Pearl. Plus the make up. Horrible.
