Hold onto your wigs because they're about to be snatched!

I know what you're thinking. We're only just starting and it's already getting R-rated? Yes, that's right. I ain't going to hold you back from the goods. This might have been too raunchy for TV... but iconic nonetheless.

14. Andrew Garfield's flares.

Iconic for all the wrong reasons. Some may go as far as describing it as messy. We still love you, Andrew honey!

13. Sharon Needles' outfits.

In particular, her very gruesome apocalyptic look, because that really took us to another planet.

12. Latrice Royale's iconic line.


We stan a chunky and funky mama.

11. The Roxxxy Andrews reveal.

If you're talking about wig-snatching moments, this has to be up there with one of the best reveals I've ever seen.

10. Detox's assets.

Apart from being the absolute queen of being done (officially), Detox Icunt's iconic dress in season 5 stole the entire show for it's... uh... revealing qualities. I must admit, it did have a lovely shape to it.

9. The birth of Lil' Poundcake.

"You're not my real dad and you never will be!" Charming!

8. This.

I have never been left so speechless in all my life. If I could even be half the bad b*tch that Violet is, my life would be well and truly complete.

7. Backrolls.

Of course, you have to gasp before you say this word, or it doesn't have the impact it should.

6. "Do I have something on my face?"

Awkward moment alert! If you have not seen this exchange, I beg you, do not watch it. The tension between Pearl and RuPaul is too much to handle.

5. Splits galore!

There's nothing that we love better than a creative split on Drag Race.

4. Is she a bird? Is she a plane?

I couldn't pick only one, could I? So here's another iconic split. She jumped off the stage. Jumped.

3. "Look how f****** orange you look!"

Yeah, the moment when Alyssa dragged CoCo for looking so orange. I mean, it was a bit much, but to this day, she still has no Rupologies for that one.

2. Kameron Michaels.

That's it. Kameron Michaels.

1. MacArthur Park lip sync.

What a performance! I mean, if you're going to give it all you've got, you better do a Manila on me.

Now that you're in the mood...
