I'm bokeh, you're bokeh
I know it's already been said, but I love the parity this season. Last season when there were 8 queens left, we knew who the ringers were (Bianca, Adore, Courtney, Ben) and who were on their way out (Joslyn, Laganja, Trinity). This season I have no idea whatsoever who's going to be in the top 3.

Speaking of which, what does everyone think the top 3's going to be? My guess is Ginger, Katya, and Fame.

Beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure

I'm such a bitter betty this season, all my calls for who should have been called to the bottom and who should have sashay-ed away RuPaul has shot down, so I'm just saying she's setting it up for a funny, plus-size queen to win, even if I find her really acerbic and unpolished compared to others before her (Ex: Delta). It's just how the story is being played out, in my opinion, kind of like how you saw it coming with Sharon, Bianca, and Raja.

Really? I can absolutely see JDF, Fame, and Kennedy leaving some time soon, with Pearl, Violet, Katya, and Max in the ringer category and Ginger occupying the Phi Phi bitch slot that means she's not leaving any time soon. I see a Katya, Violet, Max top three, with Violet or Max possibly getting swapped out for Pearl. That redemption edit is reality TV gold...for the contestant, anyway. From here it's kinda boring.

Sadly Fame's already had her backstory given to us and has been portrayed as screwing up epically from time to time, I can already see her getting thrown under the bus especially after the preview for the next episode. Why can't the Alyssas of the world be allowed to stick around for just a little while longer? :sigh:

As much as I hate to see Katya not in the top three I'm fairly certain it will be Ginger, Violet, and Pearl.

Goodness no, now that wouldn't do at all!

I want Katya to win and Max to get the Miss Congeniality money. I feel like Violet's probably making the final 3 but not winning, and I guess Ginger for the last one since I can't see Jaidynn/Fame/Kennedy making it in. I can kinda see Pearl, if any of Katya/Violet/Ginger slip up she's probably poised to go in. Max is my favorite, but with how much Michelle Visage has been going after him I feel like he'll be on thin ice + there's guaranteed going to be one or two challenges super stacked against him (thinking of the rap video one from last season especially). Miss Congeniality was a nice silver lining for Ben last season, so I'm hoping Max gets it this time~

If Katya doesn't win (which is a national travesty), she is probably Miss Congeniality, but also possibly Trixie.

Well, my reasoning is:

Pearl because they're clearly giving her an Adore-esque arc where she is a young queen that pulls herself up

Violet because she has a clearly defined story arc too. She is going from 'mean girl' to trying to change and actually be nicer. Speaking of, has anyone ever done that on the show?

Ginger because she is a ringer for the top 3 'villain' a la Roxxy.

Edit:
Everyone else has some weird non-story story. They may have SOMETHING going but it isn't very clearly defined. We're supposed to like the first two I listed because we can follow them.

It's only an avatar if the Cubs get swept.
I only started watching this show since last season, but I can't help but feel that this season doesn't have the same magic as the last season did. Maybe it's because of the cast? Maybe it's because last season was the first time I'd ever watched the show? I dunno. I'm just not seeing a clear standout like Bianca or Ben (I still think Dereinne should have gone home that week), or even Adore.

That being said, I do like Katya and Miss Fame.

This is funny, cuz it's precisely why I'm enjoying this season so much. I came to the conclusion really early on that Season 6 was Bianca's to lose, and that removed some of the tension for me. This is a lot more fun.

I'm in the same boat. This is the second season I'm following, and yeah I'm not quite feeling it this time around. That said, though, comparing Season 6 queens at a glance with the other seasons, it feels like their level of personality and talent as a batch is much higher than the others. Courtney, Ben, or Darienne could've taken the crown if they'd been in other seasons. Even early exits like Magnolia, Vivacious, and Kelly are memorable.

Finally watched this week's Untucked. I was really turned off by Ginger being so rude and gossipy, but I loved how Violet handled the situation when Ginger was talking to her about "The same ol' look". I really thought Violet handled that so well; at first she pretended she didn't hear her, then after Ginger repeated herself Violet's next comment about "Maybe this is a work room discussion" just cinched it for me. I was so not expecting that kind of maturity and I was really surprised at how she diffused the discussion.

I also noticed while Kennedy, Ginger, and Katya were talking mess Katya was obviously playing aloof intentionally. I think there's going to be some major drama from Ginger soon.

At first I just played off her two-face act as being an over the top Southern Belle but now I'm thinking she's just bitter and bitchy.

what a humorous anecdote.

Pan Dulce posted:

As for the three strikes rule, that can't apply after Coco "Doritos" Montrese broke that.

As someone pointed out, Alyssa was lipsyncing for the third time that episode too, plus they had to make sure that Coco and Alyssa lipsynced together for the story reasons. Coco's a special case and I don't think she should count with the three strike rule.

Without having watched Untucked, Max has gotten a lot of screentime supporting struggling queens (Pearl last week, Jaidynn when she was struggling with lines) and I feel like Ginger/Kennedy going after her isn't enough to turn that around. I definitely wouldn't mind Katya winning it, though.

Goddamn the kind of money I would pay to Logo for more of those Alaska and Bianca commentaries. (Seriously, Logo, you're THROWING MONEY AWAY by not doing more of those and reselling the episode all over again.)

Goddamn the kind of money I would pay to Logo for Bianca as a contestant on the show for even just one episode. Can you imagine her rolling her eyes in Untucked and reading them all to filth while turning it out on the runway and being something hilarious in Snatch Game?

Anyone else think Jayden Dior's version of Bianca was amazing? I could not stop laughing and I think they got cheated out of a win.

I also saw on Bianca's FB page that she will be the one giving the SheHeHeyTheymmmmwwwwaaa" mail challenge this week for snatch game. Makes sense.

It was. I thought for sure that she would take the win.

But as I said earlier in the thread, Ru has a thing for ghetto queens, hence the Kennedy win instead.

I thought it was just a bunch of stuff mushed together since she was told she couldn't say SheMail anymore. The way she trails off at the end to me sounds like she just doesn't care. In a fun way.

Huh. That happens in other environments too. In my past life as a medical student, sometimes I let, "That gives me life," or, "That is sickenin'," and got baffling looks. Very scandalized, textbook answers to these remarks. "What's sick? Is that bad?" "That gives you life? Are you okay?" Totally not sarcastic at all. These people were as lively as saltine crackers.

Watched the last two episodes back-to-back: boo to MKD's sashay; Miss Fame's acceptance speech was actually pretty funny (she needs to stop overthinking it); yay to Katya's win; Ginger is too good a competitor to get into these little bitchfests; Max is growing on me even if she as pwecious as a hummel figurine; Violet might not be long for this competition; Jaidynn gave a great lipsync and I'm pulling full her to realize her true and cosmic fabulosity; As of this moment I want a Ginger/Katya/Jaidynn final 3 with Katya winning, or maybe Jaidynn not be a finalist so she can win miss congeniality.
