Fans of RuPaul's Drag Race and the innocent onlookers of queer Twitter have heard the name "Miss Vanjie" for over a year now. Ever since drag queen Vanessa "Vanjie" Mateo made her iconic exit from the show in episode one of season 10, the memes have only multiplied.
Gay culture is exiting a room backwards and saying “Miss Vanjie.... Miss Vanjie...”
Brought back "by popular demand" to compete on season eleven, Vanessa Mateo have proven she is much more than a one-time internet sensation. This girl is seriously lovable. With her loud, gravelly voice, expressive countenance, and sultry, feminine looks, Vanessa has charmed millions of viewers.
Now, Canada is one step closer to claiming her as our own. After teasing their affection for each other on last week's episode, Pop Buzz reports that it now appears that Vanessa and Canada's own Brooke Lynn Hytes have confirmed their relationship! In case you don't know, Toronto-born Brooke Lynn is the first Canadian queen to compete on the Emmy-award winning show.
She even first entered the werk room dressed as a glam Canadian mountie.
Brooke Lynn and Vanessa shared a brief kiss on television and took to Twitter to further pique speculation that they're dating.
Host Julie Snyder pressed the Canadian prime minister about his dating life in his youth. Trudeau admitted he wasn't "quick" with girls, including Sophie. "We took our time to make sure [she] was the right one and I was the right one," he said of the relationship.
But their slow start seems to have been about more than compatibility. "We were both in a bit of a complicated phase in our personal lives," Trudeau said, appearing to choose his words carefully.
He went on: "When I met this girl I knew that this was something serious with enormous potential. I didn't want to go too fast. I didn't want to miss my chance."
"I had a few things in my life to sort out before I could focus just on her," he added, grinning and stumbling slightly.
"Like a contestant on Occupation Double, you had to be single?" Snyder asked, referring to the hit Quebec reality competition in which eccentric castmembers search for love.
"You could say that," the prime minister answered, seeming to gesture in the affirmative.
Montreal's iconic Greenspot Restaurant is selling hot dogs for 74 cents this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri eatery says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
