The time has come! For Class and Trash to recap another episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race!
This episode was a hoot. It started with the two groups meeting each other with shade flying fast and furious.
Bianca’s instant dislike for Gia only makes Trash love her more. And Gia saying “I don’t like messy queens. I don’t like cheap queens. And I don’t like manly queens.”
I can’t stand her.
For the mini challenge, the queens were told to pair up with a queen from the other group and do a bikini lip sync to Click Clack using the top half of one queen and legs of the other. I’m not going to lie, I found all of this super amusing.
Trash also thought April’s “Ariel” look was brilliant. She’s really rising in my estimation.
Trash would have gone with Courtney and Laganja but RuPaul was feeling Adore and Milk’s dance. Milk’s decision not to tuck might have played a role. I know you were looking!
Next, Ru announced that the queens would split into two teams to film horror movies, one from the 60’s and one from the 80’s. The queens split back into the groups from Episodes 1 & 2, which is a huge mistake on the part of Adore. The difference in talent between the two groups really is astounding. Also, how dumb is Gia?
Team Milk takes on the 60’s script and all of the queens seem to do incredibly well, with the exception of Miss Trinity K. Bonet. I hate that I softened my stance on her because she was just a mess this week. I get that she’s not an actress, but no. And seriously, she wants to be a Beyoncé impersonator?????
Bianca was absolutely correct in that you can perform as an artist, but to build an entire stage show around it, you have to have the resemblance. Chad Michaels looks like Cher in makeup. That’s why she’s so successful and that’s the appeal of that type of show. With all the Beyoncé worship, lack of charisma, and cancelled barbecue, Trinity really is Tyra Sanchez. We know it’s you, you can’t win again!
Bianca killed it. Courtney brought it. Darienne was fabulous. Milk was good as well.
Joslyn blew me away actually. Trash was expecting some Tatianna realness from her, and she really was shockingly good in the skit. Granted, it was a ditzy queen playing a ditzy character, but I want to see more from her now.
Team Adore was tragic. The group went on stage with no full run-through. Tragic. Poor April was cast as the butch character which was not a good idea. Vivacious should have played this part. Laganja was not bad. Gia were middling at best and her beige lip gloss looked dumb. Adore didn’t know her lines. Vivacious’ “Lie-za Minnelli LIES!” was great. A shame about her awful performance in the box though.
The shining star here was Ben DelaCreme who really shines when compared to these scrubs. She’s got the goods to go the distance.
Another Gia is the worst moment. “I found it funny that theirs was in black and white and ours was in color.”
Let’s talk about the runway (the theme was your best drag). The guest judges were Lena Headey and Linda Blair who were both super into it and gave great comments.
Bianca gave us exaggerated collar and is clearly working on toning down her clownish makeup. Trash think she is going to have to show some versatility in her silhouette.
Courtney’s Australian flag gown is fabulous. WERQ! She’s flawless.
Joslyn looked so much like Tatianna on the runway. Trash loved the dress but it was super bland.
Trinity’s tangerine gown is pretty, but a little cheap looking. You could also see her bra. Rookie mistake.
Milk wore another super interesting look with a Pinocchio-nose. Trash didn’t love it, but you are not going to forget a queen like that. And that was her intent.
Darienne’s wings were lovely and I think she really made it shine. The dress itself was a little shapeless but it worked for her. Her face is always super beat.
April Carrion’s rainy day realness???
She really got all of my attention. She looked incredible.
Laganja looked incredible as well. The butterfly fascinator was stunning and her face was beat for the gods.
Gia looked ridiculous. She has too much mouth, no sense of humor, and that look was stupid. It wasn’t interesting. It wasn’t pretty. And her padding was raggedy. She can go now.
Adore looked okay enough, but it was nothing special. Trash liked her eye makeup. That said, when RuPaul told her “Stars put in the work!” she was right on the money.
Ben DeLaCreme looked cute in her hot pink one piece. I like that she pads super curvy.
So Team Milk won in what had to be the most obvious win in the show’s history. Darienne won the challenge for her work as the head. I probably would have gone with Courtney, but I’m not mad at her at all.
Adore, April, and Vivacious received the harshest critiques and for the second week in a row, Adore is saved from the lip sync. Now, Trash loves Ru, but this wasn’t the move. Adore’s natural obnoxiousness may have worked for the role, but neither her look or acting was impressive. April’s runway should have saved her from the bottom two.
But April & Vivacious face of to “Shake It Up” by Selena Gomez.
RuPaul was getting her life though and both girls brought it. April won the lip sync and Vivacious the dinosaur sashayed away. This was definitely the right decision.
What did Class think? I’m much more simpler in my thoughts.
Vivacious girl. WE WERE ROOTING FOR YOU WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU AND HOW DARE YOU?!?! I hope she went home and burned that thing. You better SERVE at the finale. Did she think that was REALLY cute? She looked like Reptar from the Rugrats. No ma’am.
Bianca is my new favorite. She better come for Adore’s cheap ass wig. YAAAAASSSSS! As a matter of fact…Adore take your happy ass home. I tried to like you but you think you’re are better than you ACTUALLY are. Girl BYE! And Courtney (while boring) still gets the Hey boo (wink…call me) of the week.
All in all, this was another fantastic episode and we laughed all through it. Let us know your thoughts in your comments below or on Twitter! Let’s discuss!
