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!).

 

accurate

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!!!

kermit

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.

ByeAshy

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!

snap

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.

menonfilm

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.

weeds

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!

RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep7

Hey loves!  This was a huge week to recap so I’m going to break them into the two episodes.  Right?  Right.

We’re back in the workroom after Milk’s elimination.  Trinity seems to think that someone cares that she isn’t used to the challenges.  No one does, boo.  Adore is congratulated for her win and Joslyn is congratulated for cracking the top three.

Ben makes a joke about not being in the top so he could sit down which cuts to Darienne being jealous.  Courtney complains about the resting on pretty critique.  Bianca comes in like the boss she is to say that Trinity’s “speeches” aren’t going to get her the win.

We get back and it’s time for Shemail!  References to makeup abound as Ru comes in to announce a fruit/hand modeling challenge.  Well…okay Ru.

Bianca looks so ridiculous and I love her.  Laganja manages to win, for no reason at all.

The main challenge!  RuPaul is launching her own makeup line and the challenge will be a 30-second commercial targeting different segments of women.  Because Ru is messy, she’s assigning the teams.

Adore & Laganja – Mean Girl, spoiled teenagers

Joslyn & Courtney – Hot Mamas

Bianca & Trinity – Working Girls

Darienne & Dela – Cougar Demo

Bianca is all “THANKS RU! YOU SHADY BITCH!” because like me, she is sick of Trinity.  Ru doesn’t even try to hide the machinations like she did in Season 4 with the lie detector test.  This challenge is about the drama!

ok_080713_the-hills-drama

The ladies are preparing and Laganja thinks that they have  an advantage but is worried that “she won’t be the star!”  No girl.  Adore wins the confessional, saying “I was raised right, so all I can do is nervous laugh!”  Adore is a funny bitch.  Joslyn is so starstruck and Courtney is serving up all of the shade.

RuPaul comes back to check in on the girls.  Darienne can’t seem to contain her shade and jealousy.  Dela is trying to keep it together, but Darienne can’t seem to act right.  You are too old to act like that.

Bianca and Trinity are next.  Bianca is prepared because she’s amazing and Trinity continues to be soaked in flop sweat.  Ru calls her on it, but Trinity is a snippy bitch.

2

Ru sincerely tries to motivate Trinity with Bianca’s support.  I would have told her to go home then with your “trying” ass.  But that’s why I don’t have a reality show.

We cut to taping where Michelle Visage and RuPaul are on set to help.  Laganja and Adore are up first. Michelle is so over Laganja, it’s not even funny.  The two can’t get the timing right on their twirls, which is funny.  Joslyn and Courtney are next and while their concept is okay, the jokes don’t land like they should.  They both look pretty but this is an area where both of these two are funny-ish.  Courtney is much funnier when she sarcastically says that they nailed it on the first take.  Good use of the Pit Crew though.

Dela & Darienne are on the set.  The concept is definitely there but it seems like Michelle isn’t feeling their style.  Trinity and Bianca are on the set. Trinity’s look as always is on point.  Bianca is being all of supportive.  Trinity BRINGS it!  But we don’t have time to coddle her.

The runway theme is black and white as we find out.  And of course, Courtney continues to keep up the shade.  Joslyn seems to realize that Courtney doesn’t respect her and I’m so sad for her.  Who is mean to Joslyn?!?! So rude.  Darienne is still serving up all of the shade.  Ma’am, you can not still be mad.  Bianca and Trinity continue to talk through their issues.  Bianca better get that positive edit.  After this Bianca: “Now don’t call me collect if you go to jail.”   I just love her.

Ru looks INCREDIBLE.  I love this look.  So stunning.  Michelle has her hair down and looks so much better.  Santino looks like Santino.  The guest judges are Roxxxy Andrews Lainie Kazan and Leah Remini!  So fun.

Time for the runway!

Laganja..looks terrible.  Like that makeup is so wack.  Her hairline and wig are wack.  She looks ridiculous.

Adore looks okay.  Her walk is still bad but the short skirt and wig work okay.  Her headpiece is blocking her face though.

Bianca del Rio is serving Manila Luzon and I am LIVING! She can do no wrong for me.

Trinity better WERQ!  Listen.  This is how it works.

Ben DelaCreme looks spectacular.  I love it.

Darienne is giving us Dynasty realness and it’s the best she’s looked.

Courtney looks incredible.  I love the head piece and sparkle.  This is what the judges meant when they asked for more than pretty.  Living for it.

Joslyn looks much better!  It’s still naked, but there’s much more style to it.

We review the commercials. Bianca & Trinity do well. It’s not funny exactly but it is really polished and they sold it. Leah and Michelle get into it and I’m laughing.  Laganja & Adore…umm.  The last line is funny, but the commercial is bland.  Laganja’s delivery is pretty awful.  Laganja is read for the look which thank God.  Michelle praises Adore for looking better on the runway. Dela & Darienne are okay.  I actually thought it was a little funny.  Not great, but not terrible.  Michelle is all , “Who are you, Dela?”  Whatever, Michelle.  Leave Dela alone. Joslyn & Courtney are meh… The delivery is on but the jokes really don’t land at all.

Santino likes Adore & Laganja’s commercial the best. Lainie really likes Bianca & Trinity on the runway.  Dela & Darienne are read for their faces in the ad.  Santino thinks Courtney looked bad in the ad (which, no).  Leah defends them but there is no defense for Joslyn’s skimpy runway ensemble.  I LOVE how into Leah is.

Back on the runway, Adore & Laganja win the challenge?

umokay

I mean, I guess.  It was between those two and Bianca & Trinity, but to be honest, none of the ads were great.  I would have given it to the latter just because Trinity stepped it up and their runway looks were baller.  Michelle seems to agree with me and vocalizes it.

dumbledore_welp

Dela & Darienne fall into the bottom two.  I can’t disagree, but again there really was no difference in the ads.  The pair lip sync to Point of No Return by Expose.

Both girls seem to be nailing a pretty lackluster song while Bianca quips that Darienne had it on cassette when it came out!  She’s so great.  I love Ben’s ability to serve burlesque moves.  Darienne collecting fake tips is brilliant.

Darienne lake is told that she is staying.  Ru fakes an elimination speech but Dela is told that she gets to stay another week!  Thank God!  We can not lose someone so talented this early.

I’m not going to lie, this episode is the first blah one of the season since the two groups combined.  The challenge had all the potential of the perfume commercials from last season, but I think that these ladies just didn’t bring it because of pairings.  Step it up queens!

On Untucked, Ru delivers another zinger.  “Excuse me, queen!  Are those buffet pants?”

All 8 queens retire to the Silver Lounge and Dela is sad because Michelle isn’t seeing the real person underneath.  Courtney & Darienne are serving up shade.  Dela is upset because she feels strongly about her drag which makes total sense.  Bianca continues to be brilliant and says that crying is not the key to vulnerability.

Laganja tries to relate and the entire group of queens roll their eyes.  Trinity smirks and knows what’s going to happen.  Anyways, this makes me smile…

laganja

The topic shifts to Joslyn’s costume as it is so similar to last week.  Laganja and Darienne shade her and I’m so sad.  I love Joslyn and I hate that she’s upset.  Courtney says her drag is not as polished as the competition.

Trinity is messy and cracks Bianca up.  She wants kudos for acting right and stepping up to the challenge.

In the Gold Bar, Alyssa Edwards is here to be amazing!

alyssa

 

You better have your guns loaded.  I just love her.  “Remind yourself, you are sickening and these bitches can’t take you GIRL!  And they are jealous of your boogie!”

Alyssa actually gives some good advice and the other queens are judging the fuck out Laganja.   These shady faces are killing me!  Adore is amazing in this moment when Laganja’s nails get tangled.

When the group splits up, Joslyn shares how hurt she is by Courtney’s comments and rudity.  Joslyn calls Courtney out on her complacency.  Trinity preaches that good word and really motivates all of the queens in the room.  Aww, Trinity.  With this dash of confidence, she is much more tolerable.

The Gold Bar queens read Laganja’s voice and how she’s not acting like herself.  Adore is all, “This is not Barney & Friends!” We get all of Laganja’s history and Bianca calls her ALL THE WAY OUT. Bianca reads her outfit and her attitude.  Bianca is perfect.  

Normally, I’d tell you that I’d see you next week.  But I’ll be back later with the next episode!

 

RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep3 Recap

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.”

rupauljudgingyou

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!

lilnasty

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?  

Please leave.

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?????

noperaja

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.

vivflop2

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.”

emmaoverit

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???

werk

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.

Vivacious?

Green_Bumble_Ball

Yeah…no.

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!
