I don't have a problem with how Alaksa is playing the game, I just wish she would own up to it. "Roxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxy loaned me this shirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrt" doesn't cut it. If we get that in a confessional next week I'll be happier.

That's some drat fine shade.

Sneaky poo poo like this are within the rules, alaska just came to play the game. Sucks Tati left, she's cool, but alaska is just here to win all stars not miss congeniality.

Also I love me some Alyssa, but what Phi Phi said is true - again she was just being Alyssa and got away with it. To me her commercial was the worst, and detox's was second worse. Oh well!

How many times must I remind you to WASH YOUR HANDS?

I thought it was dumb they made the "base it on the critiques" pact in the first place. You got the power, just own it and pick who you want. I think PhiPhi and Alaska were only so adamant about it because they both knew that they'd be gone if they ended up in the bottom -- Alaska because she's the favorite to win and PhiPhi because lol.

I think Alaska is going to win this. Katya is just as smart, subversive, and talented but she's been more uneven. Alyssa is funny but she coasts on being a glamor clown and just doesn't seem as with it as the other two.

Roxxxy doesn't stand a chance and I'm a little tired of her wig reveal gimmick. Sucks that she lasted longer than Tati but her commercial really was pretty bad.

After all my "why is Tatianna here" poo poo I have to say she was robbed this episode. She completely sold me with her look and while her commercial wasn't great it made me laugh. She got her Rudemption.

I'm not sure how easily you all have forgotten, but this is not Rupaul's best friend race.

If we find out that Katya had Roxy's lipstick, then let's just assume that Rupaul wanted Tatiana gone for some reason. Rupaul is still controlling the show.

Katya said she had Roxxxy's lipstick at her livewatch party.

I have no idea why Ru/the producers wanted Tati gone, but Tatianna's clearly going to be pulling the real prize (serious and long-term increases in booking fees).

Tati is more than likely to get Miss Congeniality at the reunion. I'm surprised no one has given her props for wearing an outfit from Clueless for the mini-challenge.

Are they even doing Miss C for this? They didn't for the first one, but this season is certainly doing things differently. Anyway, I wouldn't really give it to Tati. Honestly, I think Roxxxy has been the sweetest queen this season.

I agree with the idea that Tati is going to have a huge boost in fans and bookings, which let's face it, is the real prize. I didn't like her after Season 2 and I'm all about her now.

I don't know why Miss Congeniality would be necessary for all stars. But it'd be between Roxxxy and Alyssa.

Is the reunion show going to be like the finale for AS1? I can't remember how AS1 was filmed - they didn't wait a year to crown the winner, did they? The crown was announced after Chad Vs Raven LSFYL so there really wasn't a reunion (and no "top 3"). AS1 was 6 episodes (lol teams) and the challenges were a little cartoony (seriously, street pranks?), but years later and bigger budget could mean anything. God, AS2 has been so good. I'm still curious if Alaska's "leak" will be swept under the rug by the producers - and I wonder if anyone will call them out for it (like why did you DQ Willam but not Alaska - even though the Willam thing was probably a stunt - how can you set that up and then not follow through when Alaska broke her NDA so hard, the whole season was spelled out for us)?

Oooh speaking of; Willam's book comes out this month.

Willam has posted a lot about all the rules that he broke, including the one he gave on the Reunion about his conjugal visits, but he says that none of them are the reason why he was kicked off the show and that he'll reveal exactly why in the book.

I kind of wonder if most of the book is him going to be trash talking that one WoW producer he hates.

Dec 16, 2007

Just watched the episode, and it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Tatianna was great, but overall was really inconsistent. There are some great ideas there, but the execution is just a little off when it matters most. Roxy has no place on the stage anymore, but Tatianna didn't deserve to make it much further.

Katya's lip sync had some great moments, but a lot of it looks like it was just taking up the middle of the runway on all fours. People are giving Alaska poo poo for doing the same moves as last time, but it was literally just one short pose at the very end that was a little similar to a prolonged move done at the end of a different dance.

This show's online fan base is a bit over the top.
