RuPaul's Drag U Video Recap: Damiana Garcia Leads a "Drag U: Cram Session" – Episode 1!

Damiana Garcia (top left) is giving us a “Drag U” crash course, Students!!! Jump in and hang on!

You know how at big fancy university graduations they always have some smart, noteworthy, astute celeb or alumnus speak at the commencement ceremonies? It’s always someone like Tom Brokaw or Oprah or Rachel Maddow or Amy Poehler, right?

Well, we here at NewNowNext are not about to be outdone, and for this second season of RuPaul’s Drag U, we’ve got Damiana Garcia booked as our weekly Drag U commencement commentator! Yes, think of her as the love child of Brokaw/Oprah/Maddow & Poehler if you wish, because this delightful and plucky newswoman (and World of Wonder veteran) is taking her editorial skills to a new level, as she’ll be filing a new video recap for each new episode of RuPaul’s Drag U. It’s like the lab-session or the discussion-group you’ve always dreamed of. With sparkles, wigs and life lesssons galore!!!

This first week, Damiana celebrates handy drag tips, phone sex banter, the wisdom of Drag U’s stellar guest star Beverly Johnson (one of THE original supermodels, children) and — Yes! Chicken plucking!!! Mmmmm…

Watch and learn, chickens!

As always, if you missed any of this week’s Drag U, bone up by watching the full episode of RuPaul’s Drag U at!

See you in class next Tuesday, kids! ’Til then, have a bite of cake to tide you over!
