Very sad homegirl had to go home, but the moment Ru said she was against Katya I knew it was over. I got a very-unpolished-Adore vibe from Sasha, except without the personality. Alas. :iowa:

I have a crush on Max, both in and out of drag. :allears:

Violet looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt during the 3rd Rock from the Sun years. A lot of people over at onion A.V. club like her, but so far she's too much of a pill for me to root for her. I wouldn't mind if she tries to pick a fight with Michelle and loses.

But Jasmine's the one that really bugs. Miss Fame's also kinda a mess. Watching Untucked, she's very needy; and I thought Katya :love: had better makeup -- even though glamour is Miss Fame's whole thing.

Pearl on the other hand seems laid-back cool. That John Goodman line was terrific; and so was her shade towards violet in Untucked. Also, she seems pretty unflappable. She's growing on me.

Sasha Belle's youtube channel is pretty drat funny. She'll be fine.

I may be alone in this but I'm feeling Mrs. Kasha Davis. I'm interested to see what she has to offer and I think she's kinda hot out of drag.

And because it can't be said enough: Team Minj.

What a week it's been.
So much to talk about.
And so many things we can't talk about.

Max would be so much cooler if she didn't have such an awful fake accent. I think it was the last untucked where someone pointedly asked "so, where in Wisconsin are you from?" and someone compared her to Madonna.

I wasn't feeling Trixie's dollface schtick too much at first, but it's really grown on me. I think mostly because I've seen that she can simultaneously stick with it and be versatile, so it's not a one-trick thing so much as a weird lens that she does other stuff through. If that makes sense. I'm also all about Ginger and Katya at this point.

Anyone 22 years old and playing at 'old soul' is grating. Low energy like she has a glucose problem. The Madonna voice, esp when outed as from Wisconsin. And not being very likable or fun up until her "murder them" speech in ep 2 untucked.

Its basically Milk and Jink all over again but a lower-wattage version. That avante garde identity, especially when it feels forced, is off putting to the average person.

You hit the nail on the head.

I was curious about Max after watching the Meet the Queens videos; I always tend to like the odd-ball contestants. However, Max just strikes me as a little bit bland, thus far. I hope she draws it out, but even that Iggy Azalea lip-synch video as well as her actions and looks on the show, scream "Second Year Drama Student" to me. I think Max will be awesome in about 5 years, once she's mentally matured a bit more.

Edit: Right now it appears to me that Max thinks she's so cool and unique when in reality it's a little more eye-rolling inducing and "Yes, yes dear, we've seen it. And seen it better."

My feeling is that Max should play up the disconnect between her image and her reality. Ginger read her for talking like she was from England - well then she should tell people she's from London, Wisconsin. Double-down on the artifice while exposing it at the same time. That way all her idiosyncrasies would feel more purposeful.

She also missed a HUGE opportunity to shade Miss Fame during the first episode. When Miss Fame ripped off a piece of her newspaper to blot her face, Max should've handed her the rest of the paper and say "here, dahling, it looks like you'll need the whole thing". Pity.

As for the makeup, I get the feeling that it's partly she's putting on very little in drag (which I don't have that much of a problem with, the look, as it is, feels appropriate), and partly she's already wearing a lot out of drag. I recall her looking awfully powdered in the talking head segments. Cute boy, by the way.

That all being said....

Did I misread all the signs?
I expect Max and Trixie will get the Visage-patented "What else can you do?" speech at some point. Not an unfair question, I don't think, but it does strike me that the 'pretty' queens don't seem to get asked to do odd or avante garde looks very often. I think Trixie said she was a makeup artist, but I hope Max can paint if need be; that small different between simplicity out of necessity or by choice.

The fact he decided to be honest and open about this incident just adds a whole new layer of appreciation and respect for him.

I can't watch 21 minutes of Phi Phi griping about his life. For those who want to know, I saw the first few minutes, and he apparently stole eyeglasses 8 years ago. There was a warrant for his arrest in Texas, and when he flew there for a gig, the cops were waiting at the airport for him to arrest him.

This video is more about his experience, the awful conditions in prison and how important it is to own up to your mistakes and move on. There's maybe 2 minutes total of griping about his life, tops.

No one is perfect but he came a long way since season 4 untucked.

It seems like this season;s going to have some insane runways if we're getting stuff like this in episode 3!

I'm glad that Pearl got a literal wake up call; her 'I'm so over being here' look/vibe is kind of irritating, but she definitely didn't deserve to lip synch this week. Also glad that Jasmine went home and Max won :toot:

It clicked for me when she said she'd had Shakespearean theater training; I had a friend in college who was that type of theatre with the 're' kid and she had that same overly mannered thespian accent thing going on.

I was prepared for Jasmin to be a huge bitch -- and she was. What I was not expecting was that Kennedy would be so sour. Why is that bitch treating everything as a burden or an insult? I mean besides the fact that she's stuck-up and circlejerking with Jasmine (and Kasha and Ginger, which disappointed me).

Complaining about the young queens? Miss Fame is 29 and you're 33. You are not some elder stateswoman of drag. You are allowed to dislike Violet, though.

Great runway. Yay beards! Katya :love: and Max especially for having the best concepts for the runway.

And God bless angry Ru. Though she should have worn a beard.

Glad to see Jasmine go. Her own insecurity was coming out in such a nasty way towards all of the young queens. I would have liked to see her and Kennedy lip sync with a better song and without restrictive gowns, but oh well.

I'm coming around on Max. He's been a real sweetheart, and his looks are great. Katya, however, had my favorite runway looks two weeks in a row.

Pearl's complete inability to act has started the timer on her quick elimination. That was painful, she should have been up for elimination.

Max on Untucked was odd, outright telling Jaiden Fierce "No more of that." when talking about something as benign as a 'warm tush' from a vacated seat. Is her character a drag prude? This is the show that brought us the memorable yet throwaway line of 'Santino's rear end in a top hat is loose'.

And then, Max on the ep 4 preview with that sudden complaint of "I don't want to do anything raunchy or vulgar" is going to be interesting to see if she has a career post drag race as who wants to come out and just watch some kid indulge in costumery? Rupaul's reply of 'Don't compromise your Christianity' makes me wonder if we've found the Ned Flanders of drag.

I just don't understand the defeatist attitude Jasmine had; buy the ticket take the ride. Seems like a waste of competition space considering so many queens want to be there.
