Pearl - surprisingly hilarious as Big Ang.

Kennedy - I wanted to hate her performance as Lil' Richard because she is doing the SNATCH Game as a man, and I'm tired of her poo poo in general, but she wasn't half bad!

Ginger - Adequate performance as Adele. She reused some of the same jokes that Stacey Lane Matthews and Latrice Royale used in Snatch Game as other big girls.

Katya - Officially my queen to win it all!

Jaidynn - Raven Symone could have been funny, but meh. I was too old to ever watch That's So Raven, and she focused on that era of Miss Symone.

Violet - Adequate last minute choice to do Alyssa Edwards. I don't really know how I feel about the queens impersonating queens from previous seasons.

Max & Miss Fame - Embarrassingly bad as Sharon Needles and Donatella Versace respectively.

I mean, what the hell was Max thinking doing Sharon Needles? Max is a huge prude, and Sharon is the utter and complete opposite. Max did what PhiPhi thought Sharon's shtick was. Max apparently doesn't get Sharon at all.

Fame - Great little bonding moment with Katya, that was sad but cute. Overall pllbtthhhh, though. Somehow still managed to bomb Versace even after "years" of planning for this character.
Jaidynn - "Not So Raven," indeed. Runway was kinda meh, and ended up in the bottom again. I guess she did put more emotion in it than Max, but overall meh.
Violet - Real glad Ru convinced her to change, because maybe I don't know Versace as much as I should, but I'm not sure how one would make her funny to begin with. Really glad Alyssa Edwards was her backup because she did a hella good job. That chin was gone, Mama.
Katya - :gbsmith: I feel for her and thanks to this little breakdown I am even more endeared to her, which I didn't know was possible. Really do hope she makes it to Top 3.
Kennedy - Really should have gotten clocked for boydrag. Funny or not, other queens have been berated for it, so I don't get what makes her so special. She managed to slide through last episode's elimination on Ginger and Katya's sequined trains, and should have had to stand up there and get critiqued for that bloody swarovski chicken wing monstrosity.
Pearl - Hilarious on Snatch Game but her look on the runway was not particularly memorable.... as I can't seem to remember what it was. Though I DO remember blonde hair and why is she not getting clocked for always being blonde?
Ginger - Adele was hilarious and her runway was meh, so I guess I'm happy that she passed.
Max- Girl. I just.Girl. I love Max. I have loved Max through this whole competition and really rooted for her. However, this... display. I don't know if it was just editing or what, but she... what was the singing? Did she have a psychotic break? Was that a panic attack? It seemed dramatic but not dramatic enough that it deserved an elimination. It wasn't Roxxxy freaking out and giving a sob story to keep herself in the game. Max won two challenges and gets booted the first time she has to lipsync?

Ru what are you doing? What are you on? Are you getting senile?? Like I'm really glad to get Trixie back and all, but can we please sacrifice Kennedy or Fame for her instead of Max? I wanted to see her go further. :smith:

Aww, I liked Max. She probably put herself in the bottom two with that little...moment during judging though; the Sharon Needles was terrible, but she might have not had to lip sync. I can totally see why she irked a lot of people, but I found her really interesting, whereas I kinda feel like there's nothing more to see from Jaidynn.

I wish the 'fat chicks eat a lot' thing would get called out at some point; it's so overdone and obvious and I was disappointed Ginger went there when she really didn't have to. I'm also kinda shocked that Alyssa wasn't Violet's first choice because it was actually really funny.

Max flubbed the challenge when there's no excuse for not being funny on Snatch Game anymore, and flubbed a lipsync when JDF absolutely nailed it. (Although how Max was ever going to beat JDF at a 1980s Michel'le song is admittedly beyond me.)

That said, the editors cutting to out-of-context clips of Max loosening her corset and belting out Broadway in a way that made it look like she was doing it in the middle of her critique made Max seem loving insane. And I'm...just confused?...to see a queen go who had literally never even been in the bottom 3 before leave over a queen who has now lipsynced for three weeks in a row, especially when it means Miss Fame's godawful performance got passed over when this was Fame's third time she'd been in the bottom 3.

I'm not about to DRAG RACE RAAAAGE, but you can't tell me this makes sense in the show's usual logic.

Still, if you gotta go, you might as well go in a way everyone can say was super controversial and unfair so you can make that sweet sweet sob story money :homebrew:

Max didn't seem insane from that one small edit, Max was already nuts for thinking she had any business on Drag Race with her Ned Flanders cum Norma Desmond nonsense.

The only thing that edit cost her was a shot at Miss Congeniality, she had already been pulled too far in the competition by sheer force of flopping contestants.

At this point I can barely trust any view of any Queen on any season because there's just so many drat lies being told through edits. So many things could be out of context and we would never know.

It never stops.

Katya on Snatch Game was too restrained and witty instead of being a dick joke machine and basically exactly what Max was hoping to be, but couldn't pull off.

Pearl's Big Ang makeup looked like zombie Michael Jackson in the Thriller video and it was wonderful (EDIT: The dumb Batman and Robin question answered with the equally dumb mansion under another mansion scenario was everything, I don't care if it was intentional or not).

I forgot Little Richard told everyone to shut up all the time and how it's always funny every. Single. Time.

Max deserved to go home after that horrible Snatch Game performance, but to be fair to him, he clarified on Twitter that his 'breakdown' was heavily edited. He loosened the corset to drink a glass of water, and during break Ru asked him to sing a song.

what a humorous anecdote.
Pretty sure the only queen to have ever gotten a realistic edit on this show is Willam, and that's because of how often he went completely off script.

Can't wait for next week where Trixie is immediately eliminated a second time.

It was astonishing to watch Max plummet this entire episode, considering how well she'd been doing in the show. The idea of doing a sugary-sweet Sharon is interesting in the abstract though so contradictory in reality it practically negates itself. Nevermind that she didn't make any attempt to actually play Sharon Disney-fied. And the song was terribly ill-suited to her; a crash and burn all the way even without the meltdown.

caligulamprey posted:

That is embarrassing to read.

On the flip side, when the hell did Kennedy get funny? Good on Ru for doing a double win, it was deserved.

I know what I said about Violet and I stand by it (Pearl's Big Ang was inspired. Being a clown works for her) but I can honestly say I love her runway looks so much I don't mind keeping her around just for them. The best look of the night. Where is she getting the money for all this? Those looks are polished to a mirror-shine and that ain't cheap. She must be drowning in tips.

My love for Katya grows without ceasing.

Beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure

Max would have done a Julie Andrews, Doris Day, Ginger Rogers, or Grace Kelly and just gone ALL OUT on how scandalized and confused some questions made her. Blush, make references to old actors, old songs, interact with the others more and POOF, no need to lipsync. Hell, Max could have been a chaste Disney princess or a Tim Burton creation and done the same pure schtick, saved the hassle too.

Stick to what you know, make it work. I'm just annoyed another bottom of the barrel queen is STILL in the coop. Jaidyyn is hilarious, but her costumes are so cheap and she has excuses for everything; can't sew, can't act, can't sing, and can't memorize choreography. It's annoying. At least Kennedy pulls it out when needed.

Max, Kennedy, and Jaiddyn were going to leave eventually. Just a matter of when.

Only five minutes in and I'm reminded of why I love Katya :allears: "IT'S A MAN. Snatch ... vagina." Actually all through this episode Katya was fantastic. Fame was really cool in that workroom moment, too. Ru encouraging Fame to be more competitive and Fame going "gently caress it, I'm down!" was a pretty great moment. Ru was stirring poo poo pretty magnificently in that workroom walkthrough, actually. I still feel like Fame is coming into her own and despite her mediocre Snatch Game performance, she's growing every week.

I was kind of surprised at some of the people I liked on Snatch Game. I was so thoroughly prepared to clock Kennedy for doing boydrag but then she really did well. And at how some people were a study in mediocrity notthatimeanyoumissfame. Jaidynn it is not a "nude illusion" if it is significantly lighter than your actual skin. It looks like you're wearing nylons with lace pinned to them (oh wait you are). Max congratulations on proving my point about "good looks, no content" queens this season.

The bottom two both deserved to be there so after that it was just sort of "welp I wonder which one it will be?"
