RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep4 Recap

Hellooooooo Dolly!

Okay, I’m sorry.  That was a cheap, easy joke.  And Team Trash should be better than that.  It’s just Trash this time.

We get a throwaway mini challenge this week. Female or Shemale.  The queens saw extreme close-ups of either drag queens or biological womens and had to guess which was which.   Ben DeLaCreme (yay!) and Adore (ugh…) win and become team captains for the main challenge.

Shade the RuSical!  I can already tell you that Class is jealous that he was not one the show for this episode.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.  The show immediately starts out with the “Battle of the Idols”  between Courtney Act and Adore Delano.  We knew that when they hit the singing challenge, this would come up.  Personally, I think that Adore has the stronger voice, but Courtney has more control and is more effortless.

Also, let’s just talk about this.  Because it makes me happy.

As the queens rehearse, we hear Gia’s singing voice.

Ru visits and as the queens prepare, Joslyn gets in a quick read citing Bianca Del Rio and inspiration for her butch queen look. She really has more going for her than I thought.

Trinity is showing her ass because she’s nervous. To quote Alyssa Edwards, “Get a grip, get a life, and get over it.”  This is season 6.  Show up and compete, ho!

Listen.  Joslyn Fox is everything this episode.  I really do feel bad for April.  You can tell that she is putting in 100% effort and she simply isn’t a musical queen.

“Is she frustrated sexually?” Shut up Gia.

Ooh Trinity. You are out of line. And defensive. Get it together. I get that Bianca has a slick mouth but you should be able to take it.

Laganja is so obnoxious and I love her.

What’s a Tony? Good bye Gia.

Adore talks about “butching” it up for Idol. Which sucks that she wasn’t able to really be herself as she competed.

Gia discusses her history of kabuki which is actually interesting. If she spent more time talking about her past instead of being dumb and catty, I might like her.

We have not given Ru props for looking amazing on the runway each week. She looks phenomenal.

SHERYL LEE RALPH!!!! ::yas gif::

And cute Lucian. Hey boo.

The Dragbill was a nice touch, Ru.

Shade: The Rusical

Darienne’s dancing is not good and weakens her and Gia’s performance.

Ben is FABULOUS!  She totally brought it as the Shady Lady.  Could have won.

COURTNEY is everything.  She’s a fucking star.

Bianca is actually great and is really shining.

Trinity and Gia…do better than expected. Neither is going to win but both really give it their all.

Adore’s look is just a mess. But her singing is good-ish. She has sounded better.

Laganja and Joslyn are great. Joslyn seriously is amazing here. LUV HUH.

Milk should be better than this. Like she’s not the worst, but her look is disappointing.

Poor April is trying her absolute best. It’s not a good performance though.

Runway Rundown

Bianca continues to look smashing.  But she still needs to show a new silhouette.

Trinity looks okay but some of her looks still reads a little inexpensive.

Darienne – Ooh girl, this is bad. It doesn’t flow like a gown should.

Gia looks much better than last week. But I’m not a huge nude fan in general though.

Ben is drag fabulousness. Loving Ben and she better make the top six.

Courthey Act is fabulous.  Like there’s no critique when you look like that.

Laganja is love.  I honestly think she looks amazing most of the time.  Alyssa taught her well.

April’s gown is pretty, but this is not her best.  Last week’s rainy day was her high point.

Joslyn looks good, too. Gia was correct in that her wig was not hot.

Milk disappointed me this week.  Her look this week was weird but it’s not interesting or clever this time like the past 2 weeks

Adore looks okay. This was better than last week but her looks just aren’t very good.

Judging

During the judging panel, Sheryl READS the dog shit out of Trinity. Darienne is clueless, failing to realize that she was not great in the Rusical.  Michelle is completely wrong for coming for Ben. She killed it. And Courtney brought it…but came across a little arrogant during the judging.  But she knows that she rocked it.  Can’t blame her there.

Adore didn’t cinch again. And her dress is worse upon closer inspection. Ooh, the reads for April. Poor girl, she really is trying her hardest.  The judges hate Trinity’s diction but Ru defends her flipper. They do hate her attitude. Sheryl is life acquired.  Permanent guest judge!

Courtney and Ben really are the shining stars. Michelle is OFF here.  Santino is defending Adore and I guess she really shouldn’t go this week. Poor April. All of the effort is noted though.

I love the reveal of the winners. Courtney wins!!!! Obviously though. She really nailed it. Adore and Ben are top.

Darienne is saved from the bottom two, leaving Trinity and April to lip sync to I’m Every Woman by Chaka Khan.  These girls better bring it.

And they both do!  Trinity is WERQING her fan! April is really good though but like Dida Ritz before her, sometimes a black girl just can’t be beat.  Trinity chantays and April Carrion is told to sashay away.

I am sad for April. She really is a gorgeous girl and she is by no means a bad queen. I hope the best for her.

What did you guys think?  Let us know on Twitter at @ClassNTrashShow or in the comments below.

Pause: I don’t typically talk about Untucked but let’s talk about how dumb Gia is. Gia was being ignorant and being rude. Milk, for all of her issues, is not below anyone. And Gia is literally the worst. THE WORST. She isn’t actually that great a fishy queen and yet she acts like she’s sitting.

Joslyn is so right in this argument. And I’m living for her.

  1. Yes yes yes to everything you said here. SHADE: The Rusical was cute and a nice change. Courtney’s subtle cockiness is starting to work my nerves but the bitch IS killing it so…. Gia can go choke on some geisha floral print fabric for all I care at this point. Milk was pregnant…nuff said. Trinity is pressed because her lack of diversity is showing and she can exit stage left. I live for Bianca’s precision blade of a mouth. Then Moesha step mama Dee showed up! Love me some Sheryl Lee Ralph…and the bitch still look good as hell! Hope the move is going smoothly ❤

  2. Right! I can’t say I wouldn’t be a little arrogant if I had just snatched the competition’s wig (as Courtney did).

    Sheryl Lee Ralph deserves all of the tributes. She was great. And thank you! I just confirmed my start date so I actually get to start working next week!

    Thanks boo!
