NO TENGO SCORPIO



Michelle is the same way about tap water. Professional drag judge is so high on the evolutionary ladder of crazy professions that the mind cannot help but rupture open with conspiracies when confronted with such indulgence.

Finally watching the most recent episode and less than a third in, what the gently caress is going on with Adore? On something? Coming off something?

I think Adore really needs to feel like she's got somebody helping her cause she's really afraid of rejection. Bianca took her under her wing, but none of the queens now seemed to be willing and she'd be afraid they'd vote her out anyways. When she was on the tour with Michelle they apparently bonded, so to come into this and feel like the whole friendship is suddenly gone is harsh. She was scared that ru would tell her she wasn't good enough to stay, so she said it to herself first and ran away.

Yeah, it's a minefield this year. I think that the page that I took the pictures from in the OP had the pictures in elimination order so I while I don't exactly remember the list the first two were dead on.

My bet's on coming off something. Might be coupled with other real-life poo poo, and probably is, but the second she showed up in the first ep I thought she'd acquired a monkey backpack of some kind. She looked awful and twitchy and glazed-eyed in a really distinctive way, also that meltdown just reeked of loadie rationalization -- thinking you can stay clean for something you really want to do, realizing it's not possible, hitting the wall, feeling anxious and weepy and desperate and grasping at anything to get out. This isn't based on any gossip I've heard, but I've seen a LOT of this sort of thing and that meltdown was textbook.

Again, hope I'm wrong.

I hope people are wrong about the spoilers they are posting. Adore leaving was predictable but it sucked seeing it spoiled online a week early, and the casual throwaway comment about the return for your revenge outcome is really not appreciated.

It's also worthy to note that apparently before she went on the show Adore's dad died, her boyfriend broke up with her out of the blue via text, and she'd been touring non-stop up until filming, so I think she was just in a really vulnerable place when she turned up in a hypercompetitive environment to hang out and get torn a new one with some of the most seasoned drag performers in the world.

It wouldn't surprise me if drugs were involved, but there was a lot more going on and it makes me wish Adore had been able to turn down the show. Luckily she seems to be in a much better place now.

Yeah, this last episode the emotional state and her face just reminded me way too much of what I've seen when people are suddenly cut off, which made me really sad, particularly comparing that image to the person who was on S6.

Same here, and I'm very much caught up on the show! But people have been casually posting big spoilers based on leaked information with no context. Hopefully this isn't an issue in future seasons.

Adore :saddowns: that's sucks if she's going through some rough poo poo but that was obnoxious to see on the show.

There's some great talent this season but man do the overly produced sketches and jokes completely fail to land. This show is best when it's ratchet as hell.

And that Alaska impression was loving terrible. Give me a wig and nails and my fat straight rear end could do a better job.

According to reddit, right before filming her dad died unexpectedly, and her boyfriend dumped her via text seemingly out of nowhere. She had been touring nonstop right up until 2 days before filming, but was really excited and bought 3 looks per challenge.

Then she got there having just spent the last 2 years touring with several of the queens and Michelle, and she felt like she was being treated like an amateur again. And it was edited out, according to Coco and Alyssa, Raven Symone was really nasty and cruel with her criticisms, particularly with Adore.

So, she lost it, and she felt she gave up her aesthetic in her original season, and having spent the last 2 years connecting with fans, she didn't want to compromise again. She was apparently going to stop the Roxxxy and Tatianna lipsync, but Phi Phi stopped her. So the next day she decided while brushing her teeth that she was going to quit, Ru and Michelle weren't going to stop her.

With Adore quitting, I wonder how and if they are going to make up the episode count. I was bummed to see Tatiana go and was hoping there would be no elimination since one girl had just basically walked off the set. But I guess not?

I feel a little bit disappointed in Adore. She's young and it's just a TV show, but man, what wasted opportunity. I wished they had brought in Courtney instead.

I'm sure the "revenge" thing is bringing someone back somehow. Although they seem to have been planning that before Adore? :shrug:

If I recall correctly, Courtney basically said it wasn't for drag queens to decide whether "you've got she-mail" was offensive, and that if trans people had an issue with it, the show should listen. Ru's position was essentially "grow a thicker skin."
