RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep8 Recap

Just a warning, this post is about how much I love Bianca del Rio.  If you don’t agree, stay mad!

When we return to the workroom after the non-elimination, Dela is crying with happiness that she survived the lip sync.  Ooh, Courtney straight up says she would have rioted if she was sent home.  SO WOULD I!  Back on the Courtney train.

Laganja looks for congratulations.  Whatever girl.  Laganja then tries to read Adore’s outfit as though her shitty lingerie, long crotch panties and bulky shoes are the reason they won.

Nene-Girl-Bye

Darienne checks in with Joslyn, who is really hurt by Courtney’s comments.  Courtney comes over and apologizes but Joslyn explains herself well.  Courtney is unable to be genuine in her offer to help but that’s mostly because of the position she’s in.  Take the help, Foxy!  You can do it!

We’re back and Bianca is so over Laganja (like we all are!).

And that Non-Smoking sign headpiece is stupid.

SheMail has a reference to “Doing You” and not being funny.  Ru comes in and has the queens lip sync and lying on their back with drag on their chins!  That’s funny!

Adore’s eye falls off much to my delight.  Joslyn then says that Trinity’s chin looks like Vivacious because she’s hilarious.  She then wins the challenge!!!

From the brief clips we saw, she did really well. So happy for her!

The main challenge is a comedy show!  #DragQueensOfComedy.  This is the same challenge from Season 3 where Shangela debuted Laquifa.  Joslyn’s advantage is to order the queens.  Let’s just get to the part where Bianca is better than everyone!

Bianca is beaming, you can tell she’s ready to slay.  She then calls our Courtney for being the shady bitch she is.  Oh no, she better don’t!

Dela is talking to herself and it’s a little strange.  Darienne continues to be bitchy and unpleasant.

Joslyn is funny but she’s not exactly great at canned humor.  I’m worried since her Jumbo Shrimp line doesn’t land at all.  There is a lot more reading of Laganja as she randomly sits under the table to prepare her routine.

Ru is hear to stress the queens out give advice. Bianca continues to be the greatest. I present her interaction with Ru in full.

Ru: In the past, you’ve actually helped a lot of the queens in this competition.  Who’s helping you out here?

Bianca: Well, they are all helping me out by being horrible and making me look better. And I’m not just a nasty bitch, I will help you pack to go home!  I mean you don’t even have to fold some of the shit they’re wearing

!  You just toss it in Bag #5 and go, bitch!

::Ru & Trash double over with laughter::

BIANCA DEL SLAYO IS FLAWLESS.

Trinity is nervous because she doesn’t have any jokes.  She doesn’t seem to be able to show her chops until the spotlight is on.  You can tell that Ru really sees potential in her.

Ru then announces that a senior citizens group is going to be front and center.  Keep it classy, yall!

Joslyn announces the order as such:

Darienne Lake
Courtney Act
Adore Delano
Ben Delacreme
Laganja Estranga
Trinity K Bonet
Joslyn Fox
Bianca Del Rio.

Oops, should have kept your mouth shut Courtney!  We learn a bit more about Joslyn’s grandfather and her life.  Awww!  I love her and you can see that Courtney is trying to mend fences.

Bianca on Darienne: My worst nightmare is sitting next to you!

Adore then calls her evil nice which is why she’s the greatest.  Time for some comedy!

Ru looks fabulous but I liked the look from the other episode more.  Our guest judges are Bruce Vilanch (yay!) and Kinston’s very own Jamie Pressly!!! Love it!

Darienne is tasked with opening the show and lands a joke about being single.  She’s great and kills it with a Hoarders joke.

Her best line: At the gym, I’m like a ninja.  You will never see me there!

Werq Darienne!  If she would just stop acting out towards Dela, we can get this relationship back on course.

Courtney Act gets a good joke in about Idaho and twists shrimp on the barby into a great gag.

Best Line: I want to look fishy, not smell fishy!

The song doesn’t work as much as she wants though.

Adore Delano is here and has a tiny sombrero.  I can’t resist tiny hats so she’s already ahead.

She curses a bit too much and when jokes miss, she doesn’t know how to recover.

Best Line: She has a fake ass and a fake hip.  But I’m sure the ass came first and broke the hip!

Ben DelaCreme is doing her best but doesn’t tell any real jokes.  They cut to a lady who continues her knitting.

Dave from last season’s makeover challenge (Oh I see you!  You can’t fool me, show!) is there and heckles poor Dela.  I get that this is a live audience challenge, but damn!  That’s cold blooded.  Poor thing, you can tell she’s hurt by it immediately and cuts her act short.

Best Line: It is a moist area, but it’s my moist area.

Laganja Estranga is there and makes jokes about being gay in Texas.  She then does an entire routine about weed and says that Valencia is dry like a vagina.

Best Line: I’m Laganja…

Eek.  That was so uncomfortable.

Trinity is here!  And she starts out well.  She makes a joke about being black and already having stolen their purses.

Best Line: Oh, how I got full many nights from the roast beef on page 27!  But something really unfortunate happened, my sister caught an ear infection and starved to death.

Come on Trinity!!!!  She did so well!  I actually laughed.  And she brought it! She then gives us a wig snatch!

Joslyn Fox makes an ADHD joke and looks beautiful.  She tries to make a joke about Ru being the same person which misses.  Poor thing.

Best Line: Ooh, a rhinestone!

And now!!!!!

Bianca Del Rio is here to be flawless and amazing.  She seriously brings the house down.

She opens with a slew of old people jokes calling them the cast of Cocoon and trying to get a ladies attention, blaming it on Pearl Harbor.

Best Line: My mother is Cuban and my father is Honduran, so I have a large dick, no credit, and tendency to take things that don’t belong to me!

She then shits on Adore’s Mexican jokes saying that her first words, “Housekeeping!” She then calls out someone in the audience (Dave from last season again) for wearing horizontal stripes.

Best Line: “Not a good look in your third trimester!”

She then transitions to the judges saying the line we’ve heard all season.

Best Line: I will show versatility when Santino wins a sewing competition and Visage wears a turtleneck!  You hear me?!

She wraps up saying she’s going to put fresh tennis balls on every walker in the place!

We return to the judges critiques.  I’ll include my assessment of their looks here since there was no real runway.

Darienne Lake killed it and she knows it.  Her dress is pretty-ish but we’ve seen that wig before and it’s not styled so hot here.

Courtney Act is told that she did just okay.  Michelle agrees with me that the song wasn’t great. Bruce notices that it was a canny move since she’s not a comedian.  I like the look, pretty but with a bit of edge.

Adore Delano is praised for her character and charm.  But Michelle didn’t like the cursing which is something I noticed it.  Ru reminds her that she has talent and that charm isn’t bad.  She looks ridiculous, but again there’s a tiny hat so I’m okay with it.  The wig is trash.

Santino is bored with Dela’s costumes and Michelle tells her that it was not how she wanted her to respond to the criticism.  Jamie tells her that the jokes were intelligent but she didn’t give the audience a chance to laugh.

Laganja is straight up told she’s not funny.  Michelle then actually gets it right, saying that Laganja needs to drop the “Okaaaaays” and relax.  Laganja then attempts to defend her look and performance.  Ru then sets her straight and lets her know that she is not going to steer her wrong.  And I quote, “Not for no G*d damned tv show!”

LET. HER. KNOW. RU!

Anyways, Laganja looks like a gay clown.  It’s not cute.

Trinity is praised.  You can see how proud Michelle, Ru, and Bianca are.  Ru calls her out for having that defeated energy but talks about talking herself off that ledge.  Trinity then accepts the compliment and you can tell she genuinely feels proud of her accomplishment.  She looks amazing in a fitted cheongsam style dress.

Joslyn Fox is critiqued for placing herself right before  Bianca.  Michelle calls her a comedy terrorist.  They rightly praise her ADD joke which was really good.  I love her look tonight.  It’s naked without being as obvious.

Bianca is so clearly the winner.  They praise her timing, her comedy, her skills, her everything! Love the 60’s throwback look and the ponytail.

During judging, it clearly shakes out like this:

Top: Bianca, Darienne, Trinity
Safe: Courtney, Adore
Bottom: Dela, Laganja, Joslyn

Jamie talks about how she wants Bianca to rip on her.  I do too!!!!

::pulls on Team Bianca tshirt::

When we come back, Darienne and Trinity are sent to safety.  Bianca wins!!!!!!

fairly-odd-parents

I mean, duh!  Who else?

Courtney, Adore, and Dela are sent to safety.

Laganja and Joslyn fall into the bottom two.  OH NOOOOOOOOOOO!  I need her to bring it so we can send Laganja home.

The song is Stupid Girls by Pink who you all know I love since I posted this.  Laganja rips off her wig because she’s dumb.  Joslyn SLAYS IT.  KILLS IT.  NAILS IT TO THE WALL.

She even matches Laganja’s split and serves up all the sass a Pink song requires!

YES! MA’AM!

Joslyn is sent to safety because she’s spectacular!  Laganja is told to own her star power, but she has to go.

see ya

Don’t let the door hit ya!

Now onto Untucked!

Umm…not going to detail this one.  Laganja is obnoxious.  And the girls seem to offer genuine critique.  Trinity and Joslyn definitely get in effective and friendly advice.  Even Darienne acts in a humane way.

Joslyn gets a message from her boo-thing and puppy!  Aww so sweet!

Adore makes excuses, which we all know.  Bianca comes a bit out of pocket when she calls out Laganja for her tears and whatnot.  She’s saying that Laganja is acting and not being herself.  Ooh, Bianca you should have let that one stay inside.  Not because she’s wrong, but because this is not the time for that.

Oh well, Laganja is all “people are evil” and “you all hate my guts” and blah blah blah…

No one cares and we all know how it ended.

Bye girl!

Anyways, I’m excited for next week.  The comedy show was better than the cosmetic ads and I want all these girls to step it up!

How do you all feel about this episode?  Who do you want to see in the top three?  Let us know on Twitter or down in the comments.  Love ya!
