Ginger really reminds me a lot of the southern women I've grown up around. They're not intentionally catty but they do have a knack for saying one thing and then turning around and saying another. Kinda like when Sasha came back and Ginger told her she was glad they got paired up, but in the talking head segment she admitted it was a lie. While it's shady it's just some weird southern thing where they feel like they have to diffuse the situation with kindness even if it isn't true. I've never understood it either, but I can see why people would get so turned off by it.

Yeah, I'm from Detroit, and moved to Washington, DC about 6 years ago. While a lot of southerners would cut you for calling DC the south, to me, it's the south. People say y'all here.

This sort of behavior really threw me for a loop when I first moved here. Everybody has a huge smile plastered on their face when they first meet you, feed you endless compliments, and talk about how you MUST get together soon. It took me a while to figure out when people were being genuine. Back in Michigan, you don't compliment someone unless you truly mean it. And the more time I spent here, the more I noticed these southerners bad mouthing everybody the second they walked away.

I have a lot of great friends now, but I know to take things with a grain of salt more often than I'm inclined to.

Did Fame really think that dress was ugly? And that it would be a good idea to not have an option to change it for the LSFYL?

Horrible lip sync, but it's too far into the season to do a double-elim.

After that crash and burn this episode, I think my prediction of a Violet/Pearl/Ginger F3 is looking a lot less likely.

I honestly thought it was going to be Trixie vs. Pearl 2 this episode.

It felt to me like Trixie was playing it a bit too safe in the musical challenge tonight. I mean, she did alright, but she didn't go over the top like I thought she would (though I do agree that she got outshined by Ginger). The Violet/Fame/Pearl group was just god awful. I was really hoping for a 3-way lip synch battle because the whole thing was a disaster.

I liked Fame, but this really was her time to go. Kennedy & Katya's and Trixie & Ginger's scenes were amazing while the Poo scene was actually poo.

Shhh... don't wake up the sleeping lion :3:

Worst LSFYL of the season. Like, almost Vivienne vs Honey level of bad. If I have to choose between them I'd actually choose Fame 'cause while she is understandably boring, she's trying to bring the right energy to the song, while Pearl rehashed her Blondie lipsync and just flailed her arms around.

Truth be told, I didn't think any of the dresses were ugly. In fact, I kinda loved them all except Kennedy's just cuz it was a basic old lady suit. These bitches should've been much more busted (which would probably be read for filth for taking it "too far" or some poo poo) I suspect they all correctly deduced that even "ugly" should still be glamorous, just a little loud. Also, that was my favorite Ru look ever.

Yes. She also tried to show an ugly dress. There was an idea there. Pearl's outfit was legit adorbs and came off like she didn't want to do the challenge at all. (Judging by this, I think it's also pretty clear she lucked into her first lip sync.) As for Miss Fames performance in the video? Too much is better than not enough. Yeah , the lipstick was already on the mirror, but she fought harder than Pearl, and that should be rewarded.

"I love Steven Spielberg! :downs: :neckbeard:" Oh Katya I love you.

Fame's reading made me agree with Kennedy and I don't like doing that but ugh, come on, that was bad. Throughout the episode it feels like she's kind of just falling apart or losing interest.

Ginger deserved the win, Fame and Pearl deserved to be in the bottom two and I was kind of surprised Ru didn't just go "bitches, both of you just sashay, that was terrible" after that lovely lip sync.

This episode was amazing in all the right ways.

That Fame/Pearl lip sync was such a wet fart. I was expecting something to happen, like Fame taking that mumu off and revealing a outfit underneath it, or Pearl doing more than exaggerated arm movement. Instead, nothing.

And I was gonna be mad at another acting group challenge, but this one wasn't that bad. Ginger and Katya were amazing.

That's one of the things that made me think she just kind of checked out in general. She's not so dumb that she couldn't have known her performance was bad in both the mini and main challenges so she should have been ready with something loving amazing under that smock-mumu. Even if she was sure she was one of the best she still should have, just in case.

Fame left right on schedule. I suspect Pearl or Kennedy will be next, but at this point it's easy enough for anyone to gently caress it up enough to justify sticking them in the bottom.

But if Katya goes I will riot.

My favorite thing for the past two or so Untucked episodes is Kennedy trying to warn everyone else about Katya's talent as Katya does cartwheels in the foreground of the frame.

That actually brings up something that's missing from this season: nobody is arguing about what is and isn't drag. Even Jasmine's ranting about being an entertainer was pretty soft and reasonable compared to, say, Gia Gunn's insanity.

We had a little shade when Kennedy did Little Richard for Snatch Game, but yeah this year there's no Milk deciding to have a wizard beard or a pregnant belly for no reason, and no Vivacious being Vivacious.

Kennedy needs to go next, and then I won't really care who wins. The rest of the queens are pretty strong contenders.
