I'm a soft heart who feels bad for Kandy; the producers aren't even bothering to give her more than a few seconds of screen time so she might as well not be on at all, and I do see her trying during all of the 15-20 seconds she's on screen. A queen's still gotta fight for screen time, I know, but drat, it's a hard and laborious process to go through to be made into total filler. Starting to think Laganja took the right approach to the show by going in with a clear strategy to just be balls-to-the-wall crazy, at least that earned her a main character slot.

Still loving ridiculous that Trixie's gone. :sigh:

what a humorous anecdote.
Trixie calls Ginger a bean bag chair in one of the previews, and that didn't make it onto the show. Either it was cut or Ru's pulling some returning Queen stuff again.

I gotta say by the third time the edits had Alba gushing over Violet's rear end it came off a bit...well, eww. I imagine those were comments made over several hours thus didn't come off so weird when it happened. Whoever said earlier Alba was a waste of a judge slot was right, not a single useful remark I can recall.

I'm in the "returning queen shenanigans" camp. I don't think that's been dome since season 4 so time to pull that old rag from the back of the plot closet. I feel like the elimination was the most overtly contrived drama so far this season.

I was so, so sure that Trixie would win that lipsync. Pearl wasn't doing bad, but I felt like her dramatics would have fit another song better than that bouncy Blondie tune. Trixie's campy approach was a much better fit.
Then again, there are signs that Trixie will be brought back, and since I still like Pearl, I'm not too upset right now. Generally speaking there was not one really bad performance this week (at least not in the finished videos), so it was bound to be a controversial elimination.

Katya or Jayden should have won. Definitely.

I definitely forgot Kandy Ho was still around. Huh. And yeah, Trixie should've stayed on that lip sync, but I don't think she was ever top 3 material - she's not sleeper material (lol) like Jinkx nor so overtly amazing like Bianca - if you're gonna be a comedy queen, you need to at least be able to prove yourself until Snatch Game. She was fine, but...eh.

I feel like Violet's getting a Tyra edit, though.

Getting caught up on this season. How on earth did Jasmine and Ginger justify coming after Trixie about her outfit after the flight video lipsync? That was the easiest retro-futuristic thing to understand, and you two just wore some dresses to a themed runway.

I do love Pearl, but I think that's coming from a personal place of being that person who cares a lot but always seems sort of chill to everything on the outside. That's not saying she should win though.

Dying for the Snatch Game so we can finally see what these queens are about - I feel like there's no standout yet. No quotable moments or little tics you can attribute to a specific queen. 4 episodes in there's usually something sticking thanks to the editing team.

I couldn't help but laugh when Michelle just outright asked him if he was a stoner. That said, I don't consider him boring at all. I like his ultra-dry talking heads, I like his runways. He just hasn't wowed me in one of the challenges yet.

That was an extremely disappointing episode all around. The videos, the winner, the runway, the talking head segments...it was just an incredibly dull hour of television capped off with a lame, boggling ending. I know it was supposed to be a spoof, but they should have acknowledged that the "Gonna Get Clocked" group literally just recreated an existing music video while the other 2 actually created original videos and choreography. edit: except Darienne's part lol

Jessica Alba is the worst. She couldn't even do a convincing hair flip.

The problem is these loving group challenges; it's RuPaul's Drag Race, not a business conference on leadership skills and developing more synergistic team work.

Jasmine was from LA, Katya's from Boston, Fame and Pearl are from NYC. Whatever problems there are with the show, they don't come from a city queen, country queen thing.

I haven't seen this episode yet but it got spoiled for me and my roommate got really mad when I thought Trixie's first look sucked because it was "classic drag" so I'm at least coming into this with schadenfreude on my side. I like Max/Ginger/Katya this season but otherwise ehhhhh

Beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure

Welp, I'm convinced Ru has early onset Alzheimer's now. She gave Kennedy the win, she didn't put Kandy Ho in the bottom, and Trixie got kicked out. SERIOUSLY?! Between that and the anger bomb apparently unleashed for a good long while to the drag queens off camera, I'm kind of wary of her judgment. Really, REALLY annoyed. Still, going to see Trixie perform this Wednesday. Hope she hints at something.

Edit: First time seeing Untucked in this format, but seeing it, drat, Ginger Minj is a bitter bitch. You win because you're more talented, whether you help or not, like Bianca or Raja. If you weren't enough to both mentor AND stand off, shut up and do better next time.

That being said, her Cowardly Lion is spot on. I about bust a gut laughing.

After seeing this I get why RU booted Trixie, there was something holding her back. She should have been put on a warning like pearl was but you have to turn up every week or else get the chop.

There seems to be a lot of holding back in the group with no one really going for it. I think its tactical as they want to finish strong and not blow their load early on.

The minj is clear favourite at this time.

That would have made more sense, but there wouldn't be any drama between the two. Interesting TV trumps fair competition every time.

That being said, the editing was bizarre this episode, which probably contributed to the shock a lot of people felt. In the lip sync, Trixie had more screen time and appeared to be giving a better performance, plus she had the Kasha Davis confessional in support while Pearl got nothing. Either WoW majorly hosed up editing or they have something else up their sleeves.

This is embarrassing to admit, but I had never watched "Willam's Beat Down" before, mostly because it had started when I was very ill and I usually can't be bothered to turn up the volume on my laptop and watch videos. That changed about 4 pages ago in this thread when somebody posted the newest one and, holy poo poo, I can't stop watching. I'm roughly 2 hours in, and have not breached the second season. This poo poo is genius. I want to win the lottery just to fund her life. It's like tosh.0 except funny.

This is exactly how it happened for me too, I never bothered with it till people in the last thread pushed it so hard, then I buzz=sawed through it in an afternoon.

Also I'm rewatching season 4, and this read from Sharon to Jiggly still just makes me lose it: "You're such a fat slut, after sex, you smoke hams!"

In my ideal universe Willam replaced Craig Ferguson and any plug-bent lesser celebs would have to be entertaining as gently caress or get read to filth instead of getting to promote their mid-season replacement comedies It would work as a show for so many reasons. Even the elderly, the last demographic that watches network tv, love to be titillated and scandalized in private. Willam with a massive wardrobe budget would be draw enough alone. You could have stylists of the week and poo poo, same as he essentially does now.Think of the intra-talkshow rivalries he could kick up. The rising tide would lift all boats. Who wouldn't want to see Fallon's phony aw-shucks persona drop in a heartbeat when called out on his cheating-rear end new father ways. Late night would be a little dangerous again.
