She has her moments.

But yeah, it's the wigs.

Not tonight's though.

I think Ru should have given Katya the win tonight simply because she is already planning on giving Alaska the crown overall, so Katya should get something at least.

I yelled NO at my TV screen. That had to be strategic.

I also thought Katya should have won the lipsync.

So glad Katya went for it in her commercial and didn't let that business douche get in her head. Her look ruled too. I wonder why she changed it for the lipsync, was that a Joan Jett look?

It's telling that the queen who was most invested in the tedious elimination system is so quick to abandon it when push comes to shove. And why was the talking trash can given a free pass? It's disappointing to watch after the fantastic episode last week.

Oh man, Todrick's blue ceramic bowtie and really the entire outfit was loving awful. Basically all of his judge critiques have been "I like your things and stuff." Anyone following RPDR social media seen much complaining about him? Because this needs to be his last season "judging."

Lipsync was another classic, that was great and I'm not sure whether I'd have handed the win to Alaska or Katya. I agree that the elimination was strategic, Roxxy has been "meh" to "bottom" every week.

Happy to see Katya killing it though, she's been really underperforming I feel.

I thought I was done with Rolaskatox three seasons ago. For a minute, I thought I was watching a repeat.

Katya killed that lipsync and the look for it. I wasn't here for Alaska's Great American Hero look at all.


And can we talk about Tati's T-Boz look? Oh man, I was living for every second.

Am I the only one that thought that literally everyone except Tatianna and maybe Detox looked basic as gently caress on the runway?

Roxxxy and Alyssa looked decent but they did something they've done for the billionth time (Roxxxy = 60s, Alyssa = Dynasty yawn, there's a difference between "branding" and being plain out tired). Alaska looked good but pants and suspenders and an afro and that's it? Yawn.

Katya, Alaska, and Tati all killed it on the commercial too.

gently caress you guys Roxxxy and Detox or Alyssa should have been in the bottom; I would put Tati and Katya or Alaska in the top.

TATIIIII :smith:

Tatianna got a solid redemption arc, I didn't like her in s2 but I've really enjoyed her this season.

Phi Phi... not so much.

Tati smiling and winking and thanking her fans when I'm pretty sure she was totally pissed off was a great example of how a real professional is supposed to go out.

I liked it too, I think I'm just used to seeing super elaborate drag. This was a much more minimalist kind of look.

It was great right up until the judging decisions were handed down from on high, which is traditionally where this show fucks up.

At this point, I don't think Alaska will ever eliminate Roxxy. There's no way, and it's bullshit. She's absolutely the weakest queen left, and she's been in the bottom pretty consistently. But I don't think Alaska will boot her, just because they're friends.

I also think Detox should have been in the bottom over Tatiana, but whatever. Tati was so good. I'm also super glad Katya got to shine again, her runway was AMAZING (although for a split second I thought she was wearing an Adidas tracksuit and I almost peed myself).

Baffled at not only the elimination, but the winner of the lip sync. This is the worst episode of the season. Granted, that's not a huge contest, but it did have the least entertaining challenge, lamest runway, and dumbest elimination.

At this point why all the fanfare? Just crown Alaska already.

I don't even have any hard feelings toward Roxxxy. She seemed totally fine with leaving at this point.

I also think this is probably the best result that Tati could hope for.
She gets eliminated on an episode where most people don't feel she was the worst, if she's smart she should be able to turn that sympathy from the fans into a real career boost.

I thought Katya's commercial was hilarious and she slayed in that lipsync. Alaska just walked around and basically was Alaska. Plus her wig was wayyyy too small. She needed Roxxy's wig.

Tatianna should not have gone home. That runway was everything.

I am not pleased :11tea:

Pretty pictures in small frames
It was super weird. Every decision seemed completely off. Tati shouldn't have been in the bottom (not featuring the product enough? How much did Katya or Roxxy or Alyssa feature their product?). Katya should have won that lipsync and Roxxy should have gone home.

Also, I don't know if anyone else felt this way, but it definitely seemed like a few of the commercials were better produced than others. I don't know how much control the queens have over the final product, but some of them looked like way less effort was put into them.

Alaska looked like Dee Snyder in the best way possible. I loved her but Katya deserved the win.

I'm going to miss Tatiana, but she'll be remembered more fondly for being eliminated unfairly than she would if she had actually flubbed the challenge like she did for Snatch Game. Her T-Boz was flawless.

I hated Alaska's wig so much. The only redeeming things about this episode were Katya (video and runway and lip sync) and the fact that there was a mini challenge for once. Roxxy has been in the bottom four times, and it's episode six. Send her home already.

Katya should've gotten the win. :mad: I mean it seems pretty obvious that Alaska will be the winner (which I think she deserves), but this was one of the few cases where she wasn't miles ahead of everyone else.

Perhaps Katya was going to eliminate Roxxxy, Ru gets to see which lipstick the top 2 picked, and Ru wanted Tati gone, so that's why Ru picked Alaska??? :tinfoil:

Beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure

That was absolute bullshit. I saw the commercials and though for sure Tati wasn't the worst. I never thought I'd agree with her, but PhiPhi was right: they are letting Alyssa just rehash old poo poo and letting everything slide. Her commercial was boring. I would have placed her and Roxxy in the bottom and gotten rid of Roxxy. After the burlesque, there was nothing interesting or new about her. She's consistently losing and her runway wasn't as great as Tati's.

I completely agree with the theory of Ru preparing to give Alaska the crown and making it the easiest route to the win. Which, even though it's just tv, sucks. I'm still hoping Katya pulls through for the crown. This soured me to Alaska hardcore.

It never stops.

Holy Christ, Tati has a solid fanbase that's only growing due to her exposure on All Stars 2, but I don't think that's the reason for all the snake emoticons popping up in Alaska's feed. It feels like Alaska just straight-up alienated a decent-sized chunk of her fanbase.

Add to the leak possibly costing her the crown (that she deserves), who knows how Alaska's gonna walk out of AS2 at the end of it all.

I know y'all are marking out for Tatianna really hard right now, but her commercial was kind of very bad. It was paced like a high school comedy sketch, and the product was nigh-irrelevant. At least Alyssa had some decent physical comedy the editors could work with.

And I wasn't exactly living for her look, either. It was a very good costume, but suddenly being T-Boz when you're trying to sell yourself as a superstar doesn't really work for me.

Also, Katya won the first half of the lipsync and then seemingly just writhed around for the second half, while Alaska came out a little shaky but put together a whole, coherent performance.

Hopping on the "what the hell, Alaska" bandwagon here

Alaska is usually so smart about the way she's played this, and at this point sending Tati home just makes no sense, career wise
We have seen Roxxxy, she has had days in the spotlight, and she's underwhelmed us
Tati gets a second chance, she destroys that runway, has a great challenge idea, and she NEEDS this exposure
Better send her home?

The correct move is to keep Tati around, keep everyone liking you
This really soured me on Alaska, even though they've made it perfectly clear she's winning

Finally watched the latest episode and I cannot believe Roxxxy is still in the game. Compare her commercial to Coco's talent show act - they're pretty much the same thing, only one of them got sent home for it. Also, it cannot be overstated how bland and useless Todrick Hall is as a judge. I feel like he ran out of salient points to make around episode 1 and now his contractually obligated second of screen-time each episode is some variation of "But I love what you're wearing!"
