No joke, Katya is the kind of man I want to marry. Mrs. Kasha Davis is hot, but Katya is goddamn batty and I seriously want to wake up to that kind of energy every morning (and he's also hot.)

So I've seen the Katya RuGrets videos linked, but the thumbnails made it look like yet another lovely WowPresents series so I passed on them. I pulled my head out of my rear end and just now watched all 6 and love Katya even more. I don't think it even matters if Katya goes home next week at this point; that's the queen from this season with star power a la Willam.

I'm guessing Katya MUST be in the top three considering the effort she's putting into the social media aspect, she's really building up a base who could drop a decent voting chunk by the final episode that really doesn't ultimately matter because it's all Ru, but still.

Or I just really want Katya to win. I hope it's both. :allears:

I spent last night watching Katya's youtube videos, and most of today going through her Tumblr. I can't stop laughing and I really want this queen to win. I can't think of any other queen with this kind of social media presence from previous seasons other than possibly Willam; am I wrong?

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.

Katya is amazing and she must be taught to the schoolchildren.

Why do you think Violet's going soon? She's rarely severely criticized, especially for runway looks, and since there have been so many drat acting challenges I doubt there'll be another one for her to fail at anytime soon.

I think Snatch Game is going to sink Violet and Kennedy. Possibly Miss Fame, but Miss Fame is finally showing her true form as an insane maniac and I would hate to see her leave.

I just loaded up the preview on the Logo app and for fuckssakes, Max brought the umbrella back. That might be worse than Mrs. Kasha Davis pulling out her catchphrase at the end of Untucked.

I also have my fingers crossed for Katya, if only because, regardless of when you go, it's a goddamn brilliant move to be releasing content online every single week the show is airing, to the point where it feels so freakin' obvious in retrospect. Let's face it, once the show is over every queen is living on borrowed minutes of fame, and they should be be doing everything possible to grab the spotlight while they're still on TV. Dropping a single when you sashay as a one-time thing just isn't enough if you really want to launch your star in a major way. Katya's clearly got the thing they should add onto the end of the Charisma-Uniqueness-Nerve-and-Talent catchphrase: Smarts.

Bina posted:

I think Snatch Game is especially idolized because it represents this major rubicon for the show. After Snatch Game, things always start to go crazy, in challenge difficulty and grading, and the queens' nerves really start to fray. I can't wait. :allears:

Max selling his runway outfits on eBay after every week is diabolical, utterly brilliant and kind of gross.

EDIT: Hell, there's no way Max stays all that much longer considering he's selling poo poo on eBay, right? That's not a long con move, that's a get it while the gettin's good move.

This is gut feeling, and I fully reserve my right to be wrong, but my thinking goes like this: Pearl and Violet occupy the same drag slot: the young glamour girl; as such, they are engaged in a smaller meta-competition within the show. And in that competition, Violet 'wins' in the sense that she is easily on par with Raja for most fashionable queens ever on the show. Pearl ain't no slouch, but she ain't no Violet either.

BUT, Ru has been nurturing Pearl and praising her ability to get out of her head and her performance in the challenges. Meanwhile, Ru has been assessing Violet much more critically, noting how poorly she plays with others and how little she gives in her performances. Pearl's redemption arc is very blatantly manufactured and with far less ROI than Adore's last season, but that don't change the fact that lately Pearl has been framed in the positive and Violet in the negative.

And while I hope to God that there are no more acting challenges, I don't see Violet being able to stand on her own either. Pearl's methadone-haze personality may not have much potential, but I think it has more promise than Violet's low-key narcissism when it comes to responding to a challenge and putting on a show. Ultimately, that could make Pearl the stronger competitor and a better pick in Ru's eyes.

And after typing all this up, I realized I completely forgot about Miss Fame, who is also a glamour girl and could flame out before them or outlast them, I don't know. She tries hard, and you can see the gears working, but she's also insecure and spastic. I do know she needs to go full Alyssa and embrace her dorkiness (because it's seriously endearing).

If Jaidynn goes through with Raven Symone she's sunk. Even though I don't particularly care for Violet, I have a feeling she'll surprise us all this week.

Katya's weird influences are out of left field and seem completely alien in the drag world (well, the drag world as presented to us by RuPaul), which is why if she doesn't win, I'm duct taping a crown together and mailing it to her.

Also didn't have sex until he was THIRTY. Rugrets dropping bombs.

BUT, Ru has been nurturing Pearl and praising her ability to get out of her head and her performance in the challenges.

Normally I would say this gives Pearl the clear advantage, but then I remember Trinity K Bonet. The danger of the redemption storyline is having it come too soon, because once Mama Ru thinks there's nowhere more for you to grow on the show, you get the boot.

On the other hand, TKB was definitely more busted and insecure than Pearl, so we'll see. But being one of Ru's pet projects only means you stick around until Ru deems the project done, not necessarily that you make it all the way.

Violet, Pearl, and Max actually all occupy the same slot as the 22/23-year old hyper-fashionable artiste, it's just easy to forget that Max is freakin' 22 years old. But Violet and Pearl are still battling it out for an even more specific slot as the young glamour girl who wears black lingerie. :haw: (Advantage Violet: Ru and the producers would die to make this season into a reenactment of Wicked and Max is the perfect Glinda, insufferability and all.)

Only up-front Professional Hos like Willam can pull that off without making it gross and desperate. And Max ripping off a part of the front page of his newspaper when Fame only ripped off one of the blank inside pages is definitely diabolical, brilliant, and gross. Makes me wonder if Kennedy's gossip in Untucked about Max being different when the cameras are off is more than just shade.
