Alabama's Gay 'Prancing Elites' Dance Troop Kicks Off Reality Series Tonight on Oxygen: VIDEOS

Prancingelites

Towleroad readers may recall the Prancing Elites, a dance team from Alabama which caused controversy after appearing in a local Christmas parade.

2_prancingelitesOne onlooker told FOX10 at the time: "I was outraged and appalled. I never expect anything like this at the Semmes Christmas parade. If they were gonna put this kind of activity in the parade, they should have notified the people of Semmes so that we had a choice whether we wanted out children to attend and see something like that."

Now the troop is the subject of a reality series, The Prancing Elites Project, on Oxygen which premieres tonight at 10/9c. From its synopsis:

Set in the high-stakes world of Southern dance teams, this show chronicles the story of the Prancing Elites—an all-male competitive dance team in Mobile, Alabama who are looking to go from a one-click-wonder to a national sensation. With big personalities and even more heart, these five best friends will navigate the pitfalls of stardom and interpersonal drama all while attempting to break down the stereotypes and barriers put in their path towards success.

In tonight's episode, the group gets some encouragement from (and freaks out upon meeting) Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Tops and Bottoms: Power Ranking 'RuPaul's Drag Race' 07x07 — RECAP

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 11.45.20 PM

It’s Snatch Game! The challenge that separates the boys from the ladyboys. This season’s Snatch was one of the most pleasantly surprising of all time. Given how lackluster the season seven queens have been appearing after a few grueling weeks of painful group acting challenges, we actually got to see what happens when the ladies had to step it up and turn it out on their own. The result was one of the most all-around well-performed Snatch Games, with even the worst queens still turning out mediocre performances and no real trainwrecks.

Tonight’s lucky guest judges are Tamar Braxton and the adorable Michael Urie. Let’s dish about who did who and how did they do, AFTER THE JUMP

Shangela is 'Uptown Fish' in Her New Music Video: WATCH

Shangela

How do you explain what "fish" is to someone who only understands beef?

Drag Race alum-turned-actress Shangela dropped a new music video this week, taking on Bruno Mars and explaining to her chickens of the sea how to describe "a diva so fabulous that she must have been sent by the mermaid goddesses of the ocean."

Watch her school, AFTER THE JUMP...

Tops and Bottoms: Power Ranking 'RuPaul's Drag Race' 07x06 — RECAP

Merle

Finally! We have some answers to the age-old question: Whatever happened to Merle Ginsberg?

Wait, that’s not the question anyone cares about. All anyone cares about is WHEN ARE WE GETTING TO SEE SNATCH GAME? Lucky, for us, we got an answer to that question, too. (Next week!)

In the meantime, let’s check in with ol’ Merle to see what happened behind the Ru-sic

Tonight’s episode kicked off with my favorite kind of mini-challenge. It’s one of the ones where the Pit Crew calls in the Pit Crew Reserves to come out in their itty bitty briefs. This time, instead of Hungman or ‘Whatchu Packin’?’, we’re looking for who has a monster tucked in the front of their undies.

Tops and Bottoms: Power Ranking 'RuPaul's Drag Race' 07x05 — RECAP

646x326-2

I know I'm not alone when I say that Snatch Game is my favorite Drag Race challenge. Historically, it's been the main challenge in episodes 4, 5 or 6. Given tonight's awards show-themed challenge (and next week's apparent acting challenge), I'm wondering where my damn Snatch Game is. In a season that's been pretty divisive among fans, a good Snatch Game is the kind of thing that could save this season. Bring it on, Ru!

Instead, the remaining queens tonight played a little red carpet dress-up and presented one another with some shady statuettes.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Academy, I submit for your consideration, this week's rankings, AFTER THE JUMP ...
