Class Has a Question for Rupaul.

Well….Trash is le tired and I don’t have the time to go in depth about the episode but what I want to know is…

HOW THE F*CK IS DARIENNE LAKE STILL ON THIS SHOW?!

Nene-Girl-Bye

Listen she has walked on that stage every damn week in her finest Lane Bryant, Cato, and Ross Dress for Less fashions. TRANSLATION, SHE LOOKED BASIC AS HECK week after WEEK! To top it off she had the NERVE to walk out there in her final runway look, lookin like a sparkly turd. Ma’am, Latrice would NEVER! And she keeps clomping down the runway in orthopedic looking heels. #BYE

BenDeLaCreme is polished and the only one that could keep up with Queen Bianca Del Rio. Unfortunately, the final lip sync left much to be desired from both. I hope Kelly Clarkson never catches wind of this lip sync cause…. ::yawn::

SO the top 3….IN ORDER will HAVE to be:

1) Queen Bianca (if she doesn’t win, i’m not watching the show again.)

2) Courtney Act (She may not be the best but at least she’s pretty and consistant)

3) Adore damn Delano (This should have been Trinity, Joslyn, or DELA’s spot)

RuPaul…I never disagree with you but…you f*cked this one all the way up. If Darienne doesn’t roll on home next week, I don’t know what I will do…

Class has spoken.

RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep 10 Recap

Better late than never, y’all!

The ladies are back in the workroom and Adore discusses how disappointed she is in her performance in the talk show challenge.  Courtney is bringing a bit of shade to the proceedings but it’s clear that she and Bianca are friendly.  Competitive but friendly.

The next day, Darienne makes a quip about leaving banana peels to slip up the competitors.  The Not-Shemail is all about weddings.  Ru enters and the mini-challenge is a “body art painting challenge” with a theme of marriage equality.  This is really just an excuse for RuPaul to pun it up.  I approve.

The art doesn’t matter and Bianca wins! “Ooh, very Andy Whore-hol!” As you know, Bianca can do no wrong for me.  So yay!

After a shower, Ru announces that we have company coming.  Ru announces that she’s an ordained minister and will be marrying 6 couples on the runway.  Bianca pairs up the queens with the ladies. Ru is looking for a strong family resemblance and the queens will serve as the mother of the brides.  The grooms enter and Ru announces that the queens are dragging up their husbands-to-be!  This twist showed up on a season of Project Runway and it’s still good.

Adore is nervous as she should be.  Lest we forget that Honey Boo Boo mess she put together in Episode 1.

When we return from the commercial, Bianca bonds well with her couple.  Joslyn loves weddings.  Brandon is acting like he didn’t know he was signing up for RuPaul’s Drag Race.  Good Night Nurse.  It is Season 6.  RuPaul walked you into the room.  WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?

Dela gets a zinger in with Courtney.  “Courtney might have trouble transforming a manly man, since she only uses Chapstick and mascara!”

Ru comes in to grab the biological ladies.  Bianca and her groom bond a bit.  Bianca: “Look, I actually made a friend.  Me!” Love her.

Joslyn and Ru doing her foxy honk which is completely adorable.

foxy

She says that she’s going demure.  Brandon still hasn’t figured out what he’s doing here.  Whatever.  Darienne appears to be doing a much better job with the design this time but Ru is skeptical of their goth wedding.  Bianca’s gown is pretty much done and it is flawless.  She banters with Ru because she is seriously the best.  We don’t see any of Ben, Courtney, or Adore.  We’ll see how that plays out.

After Ru’s exit, Bianca offers a bit of advice to Adore as she works on her hideous gown.  Again, it’s Season 6, boo.  No sympathy from this corner.

We reenter the Werq room and Adore’s bride reads the shit on her wig.  Courtney comes for her and her bride in a way that’s hilarious but a little mean.  Oh well!  A reference to Honey Mahogany! Queen of muu-muus!  She is reason behind one of my favorite RuPaul runway quips.  “Very Bed, Bath, and Beyoncé!” Here’s her awful song.

Brandon talks about how his teammates are going to talk about him in drag or something.  His insecurity about that is not interesting but it does give us a chance to hear wise words from Courtney and Joslyn on the issue.  Worrying about gay dudes in the locker room is like waiting for Bigfoot to walk out of your closet.  While people may sneak a glance, you are not so attractive that we’re going to push you into a locker.

Nene-Girl-Bye

Everyone is serving “Hog Body” shade at Adore and her daughter.  Because it’s funny.

But then! Bianca swoops in the snatch the best confessional line award which I just invented.

“After the makeover, Joslyn’s drag daughter looks like that one girl gremlin in Gremlins 2!”

sexy-gremlin-764647

Seriously.  Cackling.

It’s time to Sissy That Walk!  Ru continues to make everyone look like the amateurs they are in a blue sequined checkered gown. Neil Patrick Harris is here to be great and his husband is here.  Umm, hi David?  Is it just me or is it weird to see Michelle and Santino sitting next to each other?  Michelle looks so good toned down.  Love this trend boo!

Anyways! Let’s critique.

Joslyn actually looks pretty for my eyes.  But DAT MAKEUP on Brandon.  No. God.  However, it’s overall a much better effort than her previous sewing challenge.

Courtney did a lovely job on the face but she seriously made her daughter look 60 years older. The gown looks a bit retro slip cover, but it’s not the worst.  She really did make herself look young and perky and a nude dress with butterflies misses the mark on “mother of the bride” although she looks smashing.

Bianca looks great.  Her clownish makeup helps to sell her look but the real star is the trim on the veil.  So well done and a lovely way to call back to her own drag.  She also sells it on the runway with her “tears.

Darienne actually kills it on the runway for her daughter.  The goth look works really well and actually looks well put together.  I also like the spraypaint bit.  However, her own look is terrible! She looks almost exactly like she did in the first challenge except she didn’t add that trash-ass seam down the front of her skirt.  And DAT WIG! NO NO NO.

Adore…

Shockandawe

I don’t know what to say. This is honestly one of the worst runway showings I’ve ever seen.  Like worse that Vivacious’ cartoon dinosaur realness.  Worse that Rebecca Glasscock’s Ace Frehley realness.  Worse than almost anything Tatianna wore.  Worse than Shangela’s Christmas Coutorture.  Worse than Stacy Layne’s red velvet jumpsuit.  Worse than Jinkx reindeer candy cane thing.

Pause, can you think of any runway look worse than this??  The only one I can think of is Tatianna’s look for the Season 2 Ball Challenge.  Serena Cha Cha’s “soft sculpture” lederhosen of yore.

chacha

This is so off the mark.  Adore looks like the daughter and a terrible looking one.  Her bride looks like something from your nightmares with a ragged wig, makeup that makes her face look bloated, and I don’t even know what’s happening with the gown.  The leather jacket is literally the only nice thing about this look.

Dela definitely did a great job.  I love the look and her face is great.  I love her pink look and the cardigan/flower combination is super smart and nails that challenge theme.

The vow ceremony is sweet but blah.  The goth couple was great though.  Brandon still sounds like he hasn’t passed 2nd grade English.  Dela’s dress is even better in the close-up.  That’s enough of this.  Time to read these ugly wimmens.

Brandon’s face is trash.  She looks undead.  But Joslyn definitely looks the best she has in weeks.  Michelle is right on with the metallic face.  The wedding dress isn’t strong though and the bodice is actually the exact same as her party look.  Brandon is “struggling with his manlihood.”

3

The judges laugh at him and then he serves us yesterday’s craft services.

Rein Act looks like Tori Spelling.  The length is very Adore and David calls out what I mentioned earlier about Rein Act looking like Courtney’s mother.  Courtney tries to sell a cougar narrative, but she simply looks too good in comparison to her daughter.  This was an opportunity for her to really step out of her box.

Bianca nails the family resemblance and I love the yellow trim.  Bianca continues to quip her way to the top.

Darienne’s makeup skills continue to be off the charts.  Her groom has a lot of personality and that’s super helpful in challenges like this.  Darienne’s look is bad.  Neil calls it out for being not goth.  That wig is so horrendous.

Dela seriously killed it.  Santino actually gives a valid tip in that the sharp-winged eye that Dela does would have added more resemblance. The gown though is fabulous and she really embraced the challenge.

Adore…Adore…Adore.  Santino calls out the execution.  There are no compliments as there shouldn’t be.  It’s just terrible.  The wig looks even worse in the close up.

The judges reiterate what they’ve said already.  I’ll use this moment to talk about how dour and humorless Neil and David are.  Like even worse that Chaz Bono.  You would think they would be funny and upbeat, but it is such a downer to hear them talk.  Blah.

RuPaul: “Oh you’re such a whore.  We should, totally, go somewhere together…”

Back from commercials, Dela is safe while QUEEN BIANCA SNATCHES ANOTHER WIN!!!! GET INTO HER BEAT AND HER BANG!!!! 

flawless

 

Adore is in the bottom for what has to be the single worst makeover ever.  Courtney and Darienne are safe, leaving the Foxy Joslyn in the bottom two.

Joslyn and Adore lip sync to “Think” by Aretha Franklin.  If only Latrice Royale was here!

Adore is super high energy but there’s this manic intensity that just doesn’t fit the song.  I actually hate this performance although her face play is still good.  Joslyn is good (not great), but having to lip sync is so much fabric seems foreign to her as she holds up the front of her gown for the entirety of the performance.  It’s awkward and holds her back, but her performance works better for me.

But alas, it is Adore who is saved and we have to say goodbye to my lovemuffin Joslyn.  😦 😦 :(. Her exit speech is so mature and gracious.  I just love her.

Now do I think it was Joslyn’s time?  Yes.  She is a great queen, but she needs a few more years to up her style game but she is a charismatic performer with tons of potential.  I fully expect her to make a run on All-Stars 2 with increased funds and better style because she’s way stronger than I think anyone realized.

This is also the point where Adore is either going to have to rise to the occasion or get out.  The rest of the season (barring the finale) is look-based challenges.  If she doesn’t figure out how to present herself, she really should not be in the top 3, despite having fantastic charisma and performance skills.  My gut tells me that Ru is going to keep her until the finale because of that star power, but her road is going to be much more difficult now.

I’d peg Bianca and Dela as finalists as of now, with Courtney and Adore battling for the third spot. Darienne has performed admirably. If you can ignore her bitchiness, she’s done a great job on the show. But she’s out of her depths at this point.  Bianca and Ben are funnier with better style. Adore has way more natural charisma.  Courtney has so much star power but she needs to push herself if she’s going to knock out Adore.  What she has in style and confidence, she lacks in natural spark.

Untucked

Every one is super sweet and supportive.  Blah blah blah…

Let me talk about how Darienne’s daughter is READING.

::props head on chin:: “That doesn’t mean it’s fashionable!”

Girl, I fell out. 

On Adore talking about how she can’t sew: “You gotta get your skills up!”

::Laganja voice:: COME ON, GOTH BRIDE!

We “complete” Brandon’s story line as he accepts the gays in the locker room or whatever.

In the Gold Bar, we get a message from Adore’s mom and is it’s all super sweet.  Love her! Bianca continues to be just the best at everything.  I want to be her best friend.

And that’s about it. What are your thoughts, dear readers?  Do you agree with the elimination?  Who is your winner (Bianca is the only answer).  Have a great day!

RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep9 Recap

Hello, hello, helloooooooooo!

It’s time for another episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race!

The ladies re-enter to Laganja’s brief message.  Adore and Courtney discuss how awkward her exit and Trinity blames Bianca.  Joslyn lightens the mood by blaming Bianca for winning the challenge.  Courtney then calls Joslyn out for being the “Dida Ritz” of season 6, just floating by.  Dela calls her out for being less polished than the rest of the competition.  To the theme song!

Once we re-enter the work room, the girls get a She-mail message from Ru

Let’s pause here for a moment.  There was a lot of uproar after the Female or She-Male mini-challenge from Episode 4. This has led Logo to cut that episode from its broadcast lineup and remove the title She-mail from Ru’s opening challenge hints.  The argument being that since She-Male is a derogatory term for the trans community, its use was offensive and hurtful to their cause.  While I’m obviously not trans, I thought that game was innocent enough, used only drag queens instead actual trans women, and was named more for the rhyme rather than an out and out exercise in rudeness.  I guess in my mind, this wasn’t an intent to be offensive.  It simply was meant to be cheeky and silly.  I don’t mean that people shouldn’t be offended, but I simply think this is an overreaction on Logo’s part.  Am I being insensitive?  Let me know in the comments.

Anyway, RuPaul makes references to late-night talk shows but it is now time for the mini-challenge.  The Pit Crew comes out with 6 extra menses to play “Hung-Man!” Ru asks questions and the men slowly turn around to reveal their butts adorned with letters.   The only notable “answer” is Bianca’s response to “What Lady Bunny Has.” The challenge answers mostly had “ass” in them.  How fun!  Ben DelaCreme takes the win!

Ru then announces that the ladies need to “sissy that talk” in a talk show challenge!  The dolls are challenged to interview Chaz Bono and Georgia Holt.  Courtney’s excitement over being one degree of separation from Cher.  Joslyn tries to choose her outfit so that she isn’t read on the runway.  Let’s let Bianca tell it.

“So I notice that everyone in the room is working on their research, and I see Joslyn across the room picking out 3 ugly dresses.  Really? I thought for sure she would have worn one of her nine bikinis! This is a special event.”

Bianca >>>>>>>>

Ru enters the workroom and we see Joslyn’s opening line with far too many references to vagina (a direct call out of Alaska’s excitement from last season).

chaz

Courtney’s question about what the judges are looking for from her.  Trinity is encouraged and excited which is so nice for her.  Ru also encourages Adore to be more prepared for challenges.  Courtney is really perceptive in how Adore shuts down when she’s not confident.

Paula Abdul is the other guest judge! Let’s skip to the actual challenge.  There’s a hint of lip sync and intro.

Adore is not good.  You can tell she’s nervous and she really doesn’t seem to be listening to any of Georgia’s answers.  “Party” is not a great response to being told about the Depression.  She also makes the same mistake she made in the comedy challenge, where she verbalizes her excuse instead of focusing on getting through it.

Bianca does a really good job utilizing her research but it comes across very short and like she’s not really listening to Chaz’s responses.  She also ran out of time before getting to ask Georgia any questions.

You can tell that Trinity is really trying to be upbeat and pull through, but she is derailed when she calls Chaz “Chad” throughout the entire interview.  She looks good though and you can tell that she’s trying to keep it light and fun.

Courtney is a rock star. She manages to make Georgia and Chaz both smile and laugh.  She also ask serious questions and manages to come across professional.  Her hair is not great.

Darienne’s interview is uncomfortable. She is trying her best to come across fun, but between the jewelry falling off, her tragic Cher impression, and her lack of chemistry with the interviewees just ruins the moment.

Dela is really good!  She puts them on the spot in a charming way and comes across prepared and likable.  Her look is a fun throwback to 70’s talk shows like the Dinah Shore Show.

Joslyn looks a little cheap and that wig is a no.  Her intro still doesn’t work although she edited it so that she doesn’t actually say vagina.  Her joke about not remembering is really good and makes Georgia and Chaz giggle.  She loses the plot with a question about Georgia going to the abortion clinic.

eek

Now, in Joslyn’s defense, Georgia speaks about the decision to keep Cher in her documentary and comes across relatively open about the topic.  My guess is that Joslyn thought this would be an opportunity to get to “know” Georgia and humanize the interview but it reads as tone deaf.

We skip the runway prep as RuPaul slinks down the a black gown with what appears to be a bedazzled breast cancer ribbon.  Her face is beat for Zeus though.  Ru tells Paula that she is most lip-synced artist in the herstory of the show.  The theme of the runway is “Animal Couture.”

Darienne’s dress is a completely clever take on the elephant.  I love the earrings and how the design mimics a trunk. But there is still something off about the fit on her. Beautiful makeup though.

Adore looks a mess.  Her pleather bodysuit and mask don’t fit the theme at all and her wig is not great either.

Ben DelaCreme’s fly outfit and walk is fantastic. The look is so creative and well executed.  I’m so glad she recovered.

dela

Bianca’s cheetah gown is really enhanced by her body paint.  It’s still the same silhouette girl, but she looks gorgeous as per usual.

Joslyn looks terrible again.  You all know that I love her but she misses the entire theme.  I’m not sure what this has to do with animals and it doesn’t stand on its own as a good costumen.

Trinity has some of the best runway work of the season.  Her bird look is serving Carnivale-realness.  I don’t love her face this time as much but it’s still a great look.

Courtney Act. 

act

Back on top like a boss.  I can’t take how fabulous she is right there.  WERQ!

In the critiques, Michelle calls out Darienne’s nipples.  Adore is called out for her runway look (a panther though?) and her nerves during the challenge.  Dela gets the praise she deserves and I’m so glad she impressed Michelle.  Bianca continues to be flawless but this is the first challenge where she hasn’t really brought it.  Joslyn calls herself a “glamazonian warrior princess” which is so off-base.  She tries to cover it with a Diane Sawyer joke, but you can tell it falls flat too.  Santino actually gives a solid critique.  Michelle lets Joslyn know that her question was really uncomfortable and ill-timed.

That said, Joslyn genuinely apologizes and is praised by Georgia for the rest of her interview.  Courtney makes them laugh with a joke about handcuffs and continues to dominate this challenge.  Trinity is praised for her look but getting Chaz’s name wrong really is a huge error.

The judges deliberate and call out Darienne’s crappy Cher impression.  There’s a ton of praise for Dela and Courtney, although Michelle feels that Courtney’s energy dropped.  Chaz and Georgia disagree and are team Courtney.  The judges actually note that Bianca was professional and smart, but wasn’t able to translate her skill to the daytime TV format.  Michelle calls out Joslyn’s meaty tuck, but Paula praises her genuine apology for her misstep.

We return to the runway where Bianca and Dela are sent to safety.  Courtney Act wins! Totally deserved.  Darienne is sent to safety.  Adore is put into the bottom two.  Trinity’s runway is praised but her talk show dismissed.  Joslyn looked terrible on the runway but put her foot in her mouth during the interview.  She is sent to safety leaving Trinity in the bottom two.

Adore and Trinity lip sync to Vibeology by Paula Abdul.  Trinity is completely sensual and hits every beat.  Adore is high energy and really animates her face.  Loved her cartwheel and that random butt slam move.  When the girl start to interact, the lip sync heats up and it really is a toss up between the girls.  I love their salsa.  Such a good lip sync.

Adore is saved over Trinity, most likely since this was her first lipsync.  Ru also obviously wants to see more of her.Trinity gives a genuine, heart warming speech that is so mature and professional.  She is awesome.  I’m glad that she got to go out on such a positive note.

Now I know that Class and a lot of other people thought Joslyn should have been in the bottom and sent home.  While I think it was neck and neck between her, Adore, and Trinity, from the editing of the show you can tell that Georgia actually liked her up until the needle scratch moment.  That plus her apology seem to have saved her.  And obviously Adore was going to have to lip sync in front of her former American Idol judge.  That said, there’s definitely a target on Joslyn’s back now.

In Untucked, Joslyn talks about her mistake.  Darienne is finally called out for being an evil bitch.  Adore is nervous.  Not too eventful, but entertaining.

What did you all think?  Did Ru make the right decision sending Trinity home?  How much did Courtney Act slay?  Who are your top 3??  Leave us a comment!

 

 

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!

ilive

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, Ep6

This season is just amazing. This was another fantastic episode.

The episode starts with a goodbye to Gia. Oh well…

Darienne continues to show off her jealousy of Dela who is the first queen with two wins this season.

It’s time for the mini-challenge and THE LIBRARY IS OPEN, HUNTY!

These girls continue to show that the talent pool is deep with all the queens (except Laganja) getting off a funny line.

Let’s pause. I mentioned last week that Laganja is reasonably talented and brings strong looks and dance moves to the game. That said, her insecurity and lack of wit is really hurting her here. And her perpetual wounded routine is just unacceptable. SACK UP, HO and compete.

Back to the reads, my favorites were:

  • “Miss Darienne Lake. You should be arrested for animal cruelty. The way you abuse those kitten heels on the runway is absolutely criminal.”
  • “Adore. You know you’re from the West Coast because it’s a three-hour delay before you finally get a joke.”
  • “Darienne Lake. This is a girl that probably sits reverse cowgirl on the toilet just so she has a flat surface to eat off of.”
  • “(Slow) Adore Delano. I am going to say this very slowly so you can understand…you’re dumb.”
  • “Miss Ben Dela Creme. After seeing you in drag, I realize now why Seattle has such a high suicide rate.”
  • “Joslyn Fox. She’s so gay, even her asshole has a lisp.”
  • “I know what you got on your SATs: ketchup.”
  • “Trinity. I believe your smile belongs on season 4. Every day is Shark Week with your grill.”
  • “Laganja, before you attempt another death drop, why don’t you do the reverse and drop dead?!”

I would have gone with Bianca, but Ru chooses Darienne Lake as the winner of the mini challenge.

Ru then announces that the dolls will be rapping in 90’s style rap song called “Oh No, She Betta Don’t!”

yass

Let me tell you how I would have SLAYED this challenge. This is literally what I’ve been practicing for my entire adult life.  I have a Spotify playlist that is essentially Trina, Khia, Lady, and La Chat music.  Ugh, I’m already living.  This isn’t the first time Ru has had the girls rap (Season 1 finale).

Anyways, Darienne picks Laganja, Bianca, Adore, and Courtney for her team.  This leaves Dela, Trinity, Milk, and Joslyn for the other team.  Dela is a bit offended since she’s the only challenge winner left out, but if anything, Darienne makes herself look worse being the weak link on a strong team of performers.

During prep for the challenge, Laganja tells us that she’s a rapper and a choreographer so this should be up her alley.  I got a kick out of watching Bianca practice the moves.  Adore, at her most drunken and adorable, when she yells that she hates Laganja’s dance moves for this challenge.  That said, this group is way more apt to try this challenge.

Over on the other team, Dela has stepped up as the de facto leader.  Trinity complains again that this is something she doesn’t do.

1

Like I told Laganja, SACK UP HO!  This is not a show that cares about your strengths.  Either get in where you fit in, or get out.

The rest of the preparations are uneventful outside of DeLa asking Darienne why she wasn’t picked.  Darienne is salty about Dela’s wins but it seems like jealousy to me.

We jump to the recording session!  Trina and Eve are here to mentor and serve as our guest judges.

Let me just…

yas

Trash’s favorite Eve song.  Trash’s favorite Trina song.

The only highlight of the recording session is Darienne falling on some trash cans while looking like a Hefty bag.

But let’s to get to the song and 90’s look for the video review.  The song as a whole is really fun and I can’t stop listening to it.

Joslyn Fox – Killed it. I’ve been a fan for several weeks but it’s so good to see her place in the top.  She pulls out the sass for her verse and her look is completely appropriate.  Her makeup is a little dark though.

Ben DelaCreme – Great verse.  Pulled it off way more than I thought she would.  She definitely reminded me of this though.

turnupfunction

Trinity K. Bonet – Her verse is actually not that bad, even though her attitude is trash.  Love the wig she had for the video.  Very Salt/early 90’s Halle Berry.  She was smart to leave the flipper out for the video.

Milk – Her verse doesn’t make a ton of sense, but I thought she acquitted herself well to this challenge.  Her dance was hilarious.  The look wasn’t great though.

Laganja Estranga – No ma’am.  For someone who likes to rap and did a great job in her Cover Gurlz cover, this was weak.  She lost the beat, her verse wasn’t interesting.  I honestly would have put her in the bottom for this.

Darienne Lake – Wow.  This is awful.  Her look is hilarious (see aforementioned Hefty Bag) but she’s not on the beat and her rhymes don’t make any sense.

Bianca Del Rio – Continues to be flawless.  I love her shout out to Left Eye (should have had a condom monocle though!) and her verse used her strengths well.

Adore Delano – Brought it.  Completely nailed the attitude and sass.  Great lines.  Her look was on point.  She just rocked this.

Courtney Act – I actually love her verse.  Her look wasn’t memorable but she did well too.

We jump to the runway and the dolls are informed to be “Crazy, Sexy, Cool” and show off their favorite body part.

Joslyn looks okay, but she desperately needs to step up her wardrobe.  She’s actually very similar to Adore in that she is a young queen who doesn’t have access to greatest costumes.   With a boost of income, I think she could create a more defined persona.  Her body just doesn’t look as great as she think it does.  Dela serves us rich bish in with a snow leopard muff that I enjoy.  I really like her drawn-on beauty mark.  That’s really smart.    Laganja looks stupid. I’ve defended her in prior recaps but she really didn’t bring it here.  Darienne looks pretty but basic.  More Lane Bryant Realness. Trinity looks fabulous, although a bit of padding around her boobs would have hid the boyish-ness of her midsection more.  That said, her face is beat for the gods. Bianca looks incredible and really has toned down her makeup.  This is a queen playing to win.  She still needs to rock a new silhouette.  Courtney comes out with a stunning sleeping bag ensemble, only to reveal a plain pink bikini.  I know that Class loves this look, but I think that the reveal really should have been something more dramatic.  She has a fabulous body, but this isn’t as exciting as it could have been.  Milk is trying to deliver something more feminine.  I didn’t mind this look, but it definitely isn’t her best work.  Adore has continuously stepped up.  I think this is the best she has looked on the runway.  The length on this gown is so short that it reads as mid-length which I think helps.

The judges send Courtney, Dela, and Laganja to safety.  Bianca, Joslyn, and Adore are the top three with the judges calling out Joslyn’s fashions.  Santino continues to be useless, not really understanding Bianca’s video look.  Michelle still hates Adore’s wardrobe but probably needs to let that go.

Darienne, Milk, and Trinity are in the bottom.  Darienne’s terrible rap is critiqued while Trinity makes EVEN MORE EXCUSES.

shutup

So over her.

When we return to the runway, Adore is the winner!  Totally agree.  Her verse was spot on and she really nailed it this week.  Darienne is sent to safety leaving Milk and Trinity to lip sync to Whatta Man by Salt N Pepa f. En Vogue.

Trinity may be completely useless, but she f*cking BROUGHT IT.  When she says she can lip sync, she’s totally correct.  Her concentrated focus and ability to convey sensuality embody the song and she is saved over Milk. To her credit, Milk did an okay lip sync but lacked the connection to the song.  She’s sent home and comes across grateful, a welcome change from noted dumbass Gia.

As more me, I actually would have put Milk in the safe group.  Her verse was not too bad.  My bottom three would have been Trinity, Darienne, and Laganja, with the latter two lip syncing.

In Untucked, the only thing of note is a “letter” from Gia Gunn.  It’s not funny or even really insulting.  If this wonky bitch comes back later, I’m going to throw something.

What did you all think??  Who is going to the finale?  If I had to rank the queens now, it’s look something like this.

1) Bianca – The clear favorite at this point.  Her consistent level of competence means she should be safe until the final 3.
2) Adore – The young upstart.  Her fashions are weak, but she’s shown the she has innate charisma and star quality.
3) Dela – The most wins and a definable character and aesthetic.  If she lets the shade roll off her back, she can push past Michelle’s hateration.
4) Courtney – She’s a flawless beauty.  But she’s going to have to start stepping up in the main challenges in order to not get lapped.
5) Joslyn – I personally want to put Joslyn above Courtney, but her fashion sense is holding her back.  She’s been killing it though.  She’s the spoiler here.
6) Darienne – Clearly has talent and style.  She needs to be more adaptable if she wants to get out of the basement.
7) Trinity – Has 2 talents, look and lip sync.  She isn’t bad at any of the challenges but her personality is going to keep her out of the finale.
8) Laganja – Out of her league at this point.  She simply doesn’t have innate charisma and her special snowflake attitude is just the pits.

Let us know your ranking and thoughts on the episode in the comments or over on Twitter (@ClassNTrashShow).  Bye y’all!

 

 

 

RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep5 Recap

Greetings loved ones!

How is your week going?  Team Trash is here to talk about Drag Race!  Obviously!

We open the episode with Darienne serving up some shade to Milk over her last runway.  While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Lamaze realness, Darienne would be better served tailoring her gowns rather than concerning herself with the competition.

Laganja discusses the last Untucked where she received a message from her parents.  Now I love Laganja because she’s super obnoxious but has some measure of talent.  But girl, no matter what?  This is a competition.  You all get along and share a bond.  But no one is obligated to give your the floor just because your family sent a supportive message to you.  Bianca obviously made a joke to lighten the mood and you are too busy being offended to see that she was happy for you.  Bye girl, fly girl.

The next day, Laganja has arrived with a Badu headpiece.  I’m not going to lie, I’m living for it a little.  But it’s clearly a grab for attention.  Bianca calls her on it and proceeds to read the fuck out it.  At this point, Bianca is approaching Jade from ANTM levels of love for me.

We get no mini-challenge this week as RuPaul announces The Snatch Game!  This episode is always a treat.  It tests the queens’ ability to be funny,impersonate a celebrity, and banter in real time.  No amount of fishiness is going to win this.  I mean this is the challenge that made Jinkx Monsoon and Tatianna into competitors.  Where we got to Chad Michaels be completely fabulous.  Sharon’s Michelle Visage?  Willam’s Jessica Simpson?  This is the challenge that can get you to the finals if you play your cards right.

So who is everyone portraying?

Adore Delano – Anna Nicole Smith

Ben DeLaCreme – Maggie Smith

Bianca Del Rio – Judge Judy

Courtney Act – Fran Drescher

Darienne Lake – Paula Deen

Gia Gunn – Kim Kardashian

Joslyn Fox – Teresa Guidice

Laganja Estranga – Rachel Zoe

Milk – Julia Child

Trinity K. Bonet – Nicki Minaj

Ru shakes Dela’s and Milk’s confidence doubting their ability to bring the funny with their characters.

Adore impresses with a note-for-note rendition of Anna’s MTV VMA speech.  Let’s relive that because it truly is amazing.

God, I love her.  And knowing that Adore does too makes me like her way more. Laganja actually seems with it in her interactions with Ru. RuPaul tells us that she watches Judge Judy every single day, putting a crap-ton of pressure on Bianca.  I’m not worried for her.

Gia shows that she knows nothing about the Snatch Game when she initially picks Selena.  This is different than Milk and Ben who at least understand being over the top.  The thing about the Snatch Game is that the look actually means very little.  If you look like the celebrity, it’s a great help but Alaska and Sharon pulled it out without looking exactly alike because they brought humor and performance to the challenge.  Adore is totally correct in her assessment that there is nothing you can do with Selena.  Selena is many things; beautiful, talented, and taken way before her time.  But funny, she is not.

Gia does course correct changing to Kim Kardashian who is at least ripe for parody.  We jump right into the game.  Listen, kudos to the editors for making it the focus of the episode.  I like that a lot.

Gillian Jacobs (from Community) and Heather Macdonald (from Chelsea Lately) are our celebrity guest judges.

During the game, Judge Judy is already amazing.  Bianca obviously prepared for this but seriously, she is bringing it.  Anna Nicole is KILLING me! Adore is really rising in my estimation because this is a genuinely strong performance. Julia is a little bland and  Milk is not prepared at all. You can see that Ru is not feeling it.  Fran Drescher is great but the humor isn’t as strong. Rachel is…okay. Darienne as Paula is inspired but simply is overshadowed.  She was good though. Gia Gunn is way too dumb for this.  She’s simply not clever enough to even compete.  Joslyn Fox is incredible.  I already declared my love for her but she is wearing me out. Ben Delacreme as Maggie Smith is divine.  Every detail was thought out.  Every answer and response made total sense given the character.  Brilliant. Seriously, Trinity K. Bonet should do a Nicki Minaj tribute show.  She looks just like her in profile.  As for the humor…

Trash’s Favorite Snatch Game Lines:

We went back to the old country and figure out how to pronounce it.  Johnson.  -Joslyn

Like my body?!? – Adore

Let’s just keep it at Mr. Charles and Dame Smith! -Dela

BOLOGNA! – Bianca

Well I could you a fried bologna sandwich myself! – Darienne

“I put hair.  And I think I won…” -Adore

“Am I too understand that one rips the telephone right out of the wall and takes it with them? – Dela

“EXCUSE ME, WE ORIGINATED THE LANGUAGE!” – Dela

“Beauty fades.  DUMB IS FOREVER!” -Bianca

‘Prostitution Whorses” – Joslyn

“Vod–cuh” -Adore

“Cumin! Cumin.” -Joslyn

“I did think it would be rather amusing if libations were flavored with citrus!” -Ben

Trash’s Favorite Confessional Reads

“That’s unfortunate…”  –Trinity on Laganja’s Rachel Zoe voice

“Milk ain’t no Meryl Streep!”– Bianca on Milk

Pause.  Joslyn Fox’s Fran Drescher is AMAZING.  Like her Mr. Sheffield is so on point.  She could win with that performance.

So if you can’t tell by the favorite lines section, this really came down to Dela, Bianca, Joslyn, and Adore. Honestly, I thought this was the absolute best Snatch Game in terms of top performances.  I laughed out loud several times.

We learn more about Ben’s history being overweight and her mother’s death.  It is completely moving and I think that she makes sense on how she uses it to be stronger today.  Bianca volunteers to lend Adore a cincher to keep her out of Michelle’s claws.  Aww nice Bianca.  Since Adore was so great in the Snatch Game, I’m totally feeling their bond.

On to the Runway.  Michelle dressed as RuPaul is always fun.  I also love RuPaul’s technicolor gown.  Let’s talk about the runway which asked the girls to be inspired by RuPaul’s Night of 1000 Gowns.

Joslyn Fox – Looks spectacular.  This is her best look so far.

Gia Gunn – DAT. WIG. THOSE BOOBS. NO GAWD.  This is almost as bad as that creature thing she wore in episode 2.

Darienne Lake – Love the mask.  She really needs to either have more train or cut a split in her gowns.  This looks is so close to amazing but the awkward fall of her gowns isn’t working for me.

Laganja Estranja – I love the catsuit, but her wig is not the answer.

Bianca Del Rio – Look at the makeup!  Her face is beat for Zeus, but the gown isn’t the best.

Adore Delano – Really needs to get better gowns and wigs.

Trinity – The gown isn’t great but she managed to channel Ru.

Ben DelaCreme – LISTEN HERE YOU BITCH!!!! YOU ARE EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW.

Courtney Act – Such a good idea channeling Supermodel of the World Ru.  Love the wings and the twirl.

Milk –

Shockandawe

Okay.  I actually like the idea.  And unlike last week, Milk did truly put some thought into this one.  That said, her instincts were SO SO WRONG!!!! Like completely off.  Ru specifically said Night of 1000 Gowns.  Did she not see how unimpressed Ru was with Alaska last season?  No ma’am!

Courtney, Darienne, Joslyn, and Trinity are the safe queens this episode.

At the judging, the top queens are Bianca, Ben, and Adore.

Bianca’s Judge Judy is praised and she was fabulous.  Adore is read for her look, but she nailed the performance.  Ben DeLaCreme was incredible and looks incredible.  Gillian mentions that she’s been saying her line about the language all day, which is high praise.

The bottom queens are Gia, Laganja, and Milk.

Gia’s eye makeup is fucked up.  Let’s let Courtney demonstrate.

And Michelle and Ru are completely correct in their assessment that Gia was not funny and not prepared for this challenge.  Laganja is told that her mannerisms were off and that she didn’t work in enough catch phrases.  She admits that seeing how good the other girls were threw her off.  This is honestly why I like her.  She may be all over the place and obnoxious, but she has the self awareness to realize that she wasn’t strong here.  Michelle is totally correct in her assessment that I love the idea of Boy Ru and the execution.  But like i said before, this is the wrong time to debut this look.  Santino straight up says that a shocking look for Milk would be traditionally pretty.

Let’s digress for a bit.  In the past few seasons, two queens (Sharon Needles and Jinkx Monsoon) have won the show while not using a lot of glamour in their looks.  But because this is a show, they both were able to demonstrate to the panel that they were capable of it.  This gave the judges comfort in their ability to straight up “turn it the fuck out.”  Milk has to show that if she wants to really compete.

Ru advises Milk to show more vulnerability similar to her discussion about being afraid of being less than in glamour versus glamour-off with the rest of the girls .

Once the girls are off stage, Ru comments that this is the tightest Snatch Game in history.  It’s nice to see the runway factor into the discussion.  They haven’t lost their focus on the challenge.  Michelle continues to hate on Ben DelaCreme and she is completely wrong.  Ben playing an old lady is not the same as being in a rut.

Gillian is totally correct in saying that Kim K. should have tried to start each sentence with a K.

The girls come back and Ben Delacreme wins!!!  WERQ!!!!

yas

Dela’s runway look really put her over the top for me.  She’s the first queen to two wins this season!

Milk is sent to safety as Gia and Laganja fall into the bottom two.  The two queen lip sync to Head to Toe by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam.  Love this song!!!!

Gia is doing her best in her gown and unflattering padding but Laganja’s dance ability and legs take it for her and save her from elimination.  Gia is sent home but seriously her wig is so offensive.

But to be honest, this is a shocker for me.  I would have never expected Ru to get rid of Gia so early.  She is a bitchy, dumb queen with a hint of talent.  But she’s not as focused or skilled a la Roxxxy Andrews to overcome her weaknesses.

This set of queens really is fantastic.  There are weaknesses and no one queen has it all, but from top to bottom, this is the strongest set of queens to date.
