Willam was a ringer in the first place and will never be brought back unless there are colossal dollars involved. He's vastly more entertaining with DWV and on YouTube anyway.

This reminds me, has anyone yet floated the idea that Courtney is this year's ringer role? It seems so obvious to me, but maybe I'm just looking for it. (I'm convinced Detox was a plant last season, too, and was never intended for the top 3.) Courtney's bitchy snipes seem so random and out- of character, she never gets read for much, and she's arguably too famous for this show anyway—at least on the same level going in as Willam and Detox were in their seasons.

Basically it feels like Ru has been hedging her bets with a man on the inside (yes), just so she can always have someone dependably talented if the other queens don't bring it. Which I'm finding especially funny this year since the roster has been hella talented.

Kind-of a bummer for me. :sigh:

I agree with Bina! These spoilers took away the suspense for me as well. :(

They're not spoilers if the episode has already aired. I didn't even post my thoughts during the episode, the episode was already, completely over. As far as I know, no other TVIV thread operates by the standard that you two are asking for, nor has this thread ever operated this way as far as I remember.

If you know that the episode is aired, and you want to avoid finding out what happened, then you should probably avoid threads and other RuPaul centric sites until you do get around to watching it. Otherwise, you risk ruining things yourself.

Pretty much just running out the clock at this point, yep. She'd have to literally poo poo on stage to lose.

Of course, giving her standup and then sewing back to back is going to make her look (more) invincible, sooooooooo.

^^^^^^^^I think the top 3 are obvious at this point, although I still have a little hope in my heart that Adore will make it. It is the same place that hoped Alaska would win despite the editing selling the hell out of Jinxk :sigh:

what a humorous anecdote.
Was I the only one who cringed at Darienne's couple's "vows"? The catchphrase-laden stuff was funny, yeah, but I was uncomfortably reminded of Naruto fans for some reason. Drag Race weeaboos. (Sheaboos?)

Ben can't sew, but he makes good dresses anyway. I'm just curious how hot glue and desperation is going to hold up in a 3 looks challenge. Adore and Courtney are going to be bottom 2 next week entirely because of their inability to sew, and I have a feeling Adore's the one going home :sigh:

I was kind of unsure about whether I really wanted to have Bianca win because then she would be ineligible for All-Stars and the more Bianca we get the better, but then I figured out a perfect solution that would preserve the integrity of the competition while giving us maximum Bianca screen time. After Bianca wins, just have her replace Santino as a permanent guest judge. That way everyone wins! (except Santino I guess.)

Trip report: Went and saw Bianca at Hot Mess Drag Revue. She was very talented and very funny but seemed very rushed-- probably because she was booked at a second gig across town.

Yes please god.

It's not going to happen (have we ever had a single other drag queen even guest judge? World of Wonder's not about to let another queen upstage their moneymaker) but the comedy gold coming out of Bianca's mouth during the runway and judging would be priceless.

Another excellent episode of the Bianca Del Rio Show starring Bianca Del Rio. :allears: If there's a case to be made for a contestant being a ringer it's her. She's worked with Lady Bunny for years.

Bianca just looks so amazing to me. She's unflappable, always gracious to the judges and any guests, witty and funny, and doesn't hide or pretend she isn't above throwing shade. My only minor complaint is that her look, while flawless, is obvious: the cut of her dress (I think I heard Courtney call it a boat cut?), the way she styles her wigs, and her (unique) eye make up. Regardless, I want her to win. Ben is adorable but there's something so wonderfully professional about Bianca.

There's a persistent rumor to this effect, and I hope to God it's not true because if she is a ringer she's getting booted before the final 3 and if that happens I will ugly cry.

Have some Bianca being perfect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nbr8DtclSFQ

Getting into this show and binging on all it's seasons plus untucked over three weeks is maybe the single most entertaining thing I've ever done. I went in knowing literally nothing about drag culture and now I'm in love with five different queens. Binging that quickly really highlights how polished Bianca is, I hope she takes it this season.

Also this is probably incredibly old news for everybody here but when the dust settled I put on some old Community while I was working out and who should be in it singing about her pocket full of Hawthornes? loving Shangela. I've seen that episode a hundred times and never thought anything of the video before. Awesome.

Speaking of Shangela, she's going to be on Bones next week. I'm excited because I always watch the new Bones as part of my RPDR ritual (which doesn't work out as well now that it starts at 10 instead of 9 but still).

I'd heard of Shangela previously, but I didn't see her until Terriers and Community and gave standout performances in both shows. So I was surprised to find her so maligned when I got to watching Drag Race regularly.

She was on an episode of The Mentalist. She might give Willam competition for screen time (I have no clue of this is true).

gently caress. They threw Dela under the bus in the name of plot. (Barring a wild game change, the Top Three are a lock now; Dela versus Bianca versus Courtney versus Adore would be too unpredictable apparently.)

This is Coco versus Alyssa all over again (in more ways than one: in both instances, a shady queen beat a rival quirky queen despite lip syncing three times).

I'm pissed.

EDIT: At least the race for Miss Congeniality just got a lot tighter.
