This is what America's next drag super star does...

She works for a living.
I thought Pearl should have won but Ginger and Kennedy were good too. Though I agree Ginger relied too much on food and other jokes that had been done before.

I'm happy my beautiful Chicken Queen Fame was safe. I'm not sad to see Max go but I am a little surprised. I really hope they don't bring her back next week because what would even be the point? If that was the case they should have just done a double shantay. Trixie is the only one who got an edit to make it look like she didn't deserve to leave (all the queens talking about how shocked they were that she left, getting talking head praising her lip synch) so I think it will probably be her that comes back.

Ok, I do not need to be crying this hard before work. Katya hit it home for me. I've been sober for three years, and that feeling self worth being completely absent really loving sucks.

I am so glad I had kleenex on my desk.

Katya is just such a gem. I want to be her best friend immediately and I'm doing the most rooting for her; my only minor beef is that it seems like she's showing up more in the werkroom and confessionals than in the challenges/on the runway. I don't know if it's the edit or if she's getting in her own way, but I want to see her break the gently caress out and it hasn't quite happened yet. C'mon, mom!

Stray, unrelated observation: why isn't Pearl getting dinged for that cadaveresque nose contour? It's so distracting and she doesn't even need it.

Oh yeah, I guess something happened with Max, huh.

I need a gif of that lip curl Pearl does right at the end of the episode when RuPaul mentions bringing back a queen. I laughed so hard at that.

Also, watch Alyssa Edwards get her life watching Violet portray her:

Some Snatch Game Goodies for you all.

I am still stuck on making gifs for Katya from her series. Editing is becoming a real PAIN.

Also- I cannot make gifs of Mom crying. It breaks my heart. So I just made one of her happy, and laughing.

It really was a great Untucked.

I want to dislike Kennedy, but then she turns something like this out and then acts a fool in Untucked. It was enough to change my opinion.

Oh Max...

Oh look, the consequences of my prior actions are finally catching up to me.
Watched the latest episode with the BF last night and it was crazy to see how quick Max fell and was out.

All she needed to do was have some decent follow up to some of her answers and responses and she would have been fine. I mean, Ru set her up big time at the opening with the seance bit. She just needed to say something along the lines of "Oh yes, I was just at a seance, you wouldn't believe how many sacrifices it took to summon me for Snatch Game!"

As for the other queens, what has already been said by others is pretty spot on, but mostly thank you Ginger for not wearing a dress. I really liked her leather and lace outfit.

That editing during Max's on-stage "meltdown" was terrrrrrrrrible, but I agree with all y'all that she really fell down on this challenge/that lipsync.

Second everything about that Untucked. The Sasha Belle shade was perfect.

Apr 18, 2007

What was really annoying about Max was the defeatist attitude on top of the "I'm going to wear a different colored wig once and then go back to gray" bit. The shade directed toward Jaidynn was also ridiculous. It really makes me wonder if what Ginger said in that last Untucked episode was more truth than gossip.

I thought this post on IG from Milk was actually spot on.

I'm pretty sure Max says she wasn't talking about Jaydin during the whole garbage bag thing. Maybe Ginger? That would explain Ginger's stance.

The only thing Max says is that it's somebody else than Violet or Pearl, and Jaidynn seems to be the most likely target. I feel sorry for Jaidynn since she had to take out a loan to buy the fabrics for the show, but I agree with Max that her look tonight was awful.

I'm honestly kinda glad Max went. Her affected character was irritating and not over-the-top enough to cross over to endearing (see Laganja).

Max didn't go home because she listened to Michelle and changed her wig. She went home because she was boring in Snatch Game, bland on the runway, and not as fun as Jaidyn in the lip sync. Honestly I think Ru made up her mind before the lip sync even started, which is why she asked Max to sing during a "break" to get some extra footage.

I'm biased I guess because I never really liked Max. She never came across as clever enough to maintain a full character to me. It was just a bunch of grey wigs, faded dresses, and "darlings" in a low-effort accent.

Huh, could've sworn Max clarified it wasn't Ginger she was referring to with the garbage bag comment. The camera made a pretty pointed pan to Jaidynn after the comment, iirc.

Anyway I'm glad Violet apparently got over her 'this isn't RuPaul's best friend race!' attitude because this week's untucked made her so much more likeable.

I wonder if Ru loved Trixie's Anne Frank, but knew it wouldn't get on the air, so the plan was always to eliminate her (controversially) before Snatch Game and bring her back right after.

They tell the girls all the time when they can and can't do certain characters for reasons related to copyright, I'm sure they would just give a quick whisper to never, ever say the words "Anne Frank" on screen if she wanted to last another week.

But I like your theory better. :allears:

Apparently the producers didn't even let Trixie bring the costume with her. It's a clever idea, but I don't blame WoW for being extra careful after the whole "She-Mail" snafu.
