She is, but I was a little put off by her bitching about her "box of CRAAAAAAAAAAP" that LaGanja assigned to her. Gurt, you walked in the workroom in a military outfit. Is it that far of a stretch for you to think that you could also make a box full of military stuff work again.

I ain't got no time for queens whining about shade that isn't there.

It might be a Tammie Brown Eh-gently caress-It situation, or a Human-Wallpaper Ivy Winters situation.

This video is spoilerific (I'm assuming it comes from a challenge) but it does contain clips of Milk's audition tape and a bunch of her looks, including the outfit that goes with that hair and makeup. And it is fabulous! All of her looks are great, really.

This. She had the resources to do a great punk rock/tough girl look in the Vivienne Westwood mold with all that plaid; which could've easily worked for her glamorous androgyny (which I am a fan of in anybody). Though from what I saw online, she does not go for those kinds of looks. A shame; she could've done something better than her final result, which was top 2 by default really.

You passed right by that bag of Sketti, and that was a mistake.

Okay but what the gently caress can you do with a bag of cooked spaghetti that's been sitting in a plastic bag for probably at least half a day, and have it remain any good quality in studio lighting (there's a reason why food in commercials isn't real food)
I've heard 3 or 4 people say that the passing up the Sketti was a mistake, but nobody's given me a solid reason why.

I know we've had a lot of ViVacious love in this thread already, but I cannot get enough of hers. Video is once again spoilerific. She's gonna be a treat in the lip syncs, I can already tell.

I also think I'm in love with Courtney. She seems so sweet, and she's loving stunning in and out of drag.

I'm hoping these things' existence means there's gonna be another recording/possibly music video making challenge?

I'm with you on both points; and what's extra great is you can see that behind the acne Milk has the chops to make herself really beautiful even with her kooky aesthetic.

Also, I was trying to figure out the new runway music and it's, I'm mostly sure, "sissy that walk" off Ru's new album "Born Naked". It's on Spotify! :neckbeard:

You go for the Honey Boo Boo white trash, covered in sketti, playing smell my breath. You paint on some Mother June neck wrinkles, and a deformed toe, and stomp the runway. That's what you do. You don't wrap your self up in some ugly fabric with a bow. She got lucky this time and I like Adore. I want her to stick around at least long enough to really get into it with Bianca.

Yes. It is. Be weird, but be cute.

I don't think the videos are technically spoilers, because all the girls made one. Kelly has one and she got the boot the first day. I think RuPaul made them make the videos, or submit them as a part of the audition tape.

I love me some Milk, but I have a feeling that Michelle Visage isn't going to like her kooky glamour. I think Michelle will tolerate Vivacious kook, because she's an O.G. Club kid, and you have to respect that.

Can we trade in these horrible Gilead HIV ads for last seasons puppet HIV commercials?

Milk is making me want to pour myself a big bowl of cereal. Bianca is funny but girl needs to be able to turn it off, or she's going to wear thin quickly. Coming in to this I had written off Trinity Bonet, but anyone giving Queen Amidala realness gets a nod of approval for me. I also don't want to hear another word about Courtney Act's sex life.

For real. I love Darienne, and she destroyed Magnolia. Magnolia seemed like a really insecure and not as clever version of Sharon. Her look was nothing and she had a bad attitude. Sure, any press is good press. :rolleyes:

Trinity really surprised me. I wasn't too into her from any of the pre-release stuff, but she's really funny, clever, and her look was fantastic. Thought she was gonna win, I liked the "pizza box" though. :colbert:

I'm glad the judges liked Milk's look, because it was killer. Seems like she'll be fun to watch.

The twerking scene from Untucked was awesome, as was Courtney's conversation about being "a glamorous stepping stone across the pond to homosexuality" for guys that identify as straight but still wanna sleep with her. I like her a lot.

And of course, Bianca was fantastic. She's loving hysterical.

Something along the lines of:

"You have nice legs."
"She's a pirate, one of those is wooden."
"Well, I do like to eat at IHOP."

Sure, it takes a solid 20 seconds to get from point A to point B on that one, but it's a nice slip-under-the-radar pun.

As for everyone else~

Milk- I am lactose intolerant, and I want to eat you up. Pretty all around, and I LOVE that she is keeping to her character! YOUGOGURL

Darienne & Bianca- I am in love with both of your personalities. When I grow up, can I be like you? :allears:

Courtney- Stop relying on that BODY. I love that you are a polished queen, but do you have what it takes to get to the TOP?

Joslyn- Full of giggles. Lots of giggles.

TKB- I loved the space princess look, but something was screaming at me the whole time. I think it was the back lining on her face? It looked a little busy.

Just caught up on the second episode and I love this group even more than the first. I thought Trinity was going to be another Tyra Sanchez after her intro outfit + the Béyonce love, but girl was giving me life tonight. Did not see that coming at all - serious dark horse.

Darienne might have made the serious big girl mistake of wearing a sequined...bag...thing...that just about every big girl on this show has made, but Magnolia made the fatal mistake of being both completely unlikeable and completely unwilling to play the Drag Race game.

Oh god I'm watching Untucked now and Magnolia literally says "You really should know how to sew" about herself. "I want the exposure...for the ego." Forget the ego, someone disconnect her id from her mouth please dear God

Milk, Courtney, Bianca, all awesome queens, good people, and cute guys. :3: Still rooting for Darienne though, a big girl's gotta win it someday!

Jocelyn is a pretty traditional sorority girl kind of contestant, but she's also adorably clueless. Not going to last in the bigger pond, unfortunately, where Adore Delano has that poo poo on lock down.

Speaking of which...loved the way Bianca immediately read Gia Gunn, out of all the queens in the other group, as soon as she laid eyes on her. Shots about to be fired out of both barrels :allears:

After watching episode 602 and untucked, I'm surprised how nice Bianca is. From the editing and previews, I thought that she was going to be a unreasonable bitch. When the judges didn't like her make-up, she took it like a champ. She seems to understand that she's there to play the game, and if that means blending a little more, so be it.

I don't know that her Luau dress was couture, but it was finished nicely, and fit her well. I'm hoping we get to see more of her sewing ability. As someone who can run a straight line on a sewing machine, there's no excuse on not being able to sew at all. I mean, drat. Get your dress form, and start pinning and draping. Then take that over to your machine and sew it up. You don't have to be a seamstress, but you should be able to make a tube.

Bottom line: You make it on the show, you take a sewing class at the community college.

Also, I didn't realize that Courtney could sing. Now I'm eagerly awating a show down between Adore and Courtney. I get the feeling that Courtney would win the challenge because she's more polished that Adore, and that will piss Adore-Polish-remover right off.

Yes! This is what I'm talkin bout!

I was so disappointed after last week's lackluster bunch, but now I'm excited for Drag Race again.

Love Courtney's personality and fishiness (I'm a sucker for a fishy girl), but wasn't too impressed with her runway look.

Milk is very cute out of drag and I'm interested in seeing more of her quirky looks, so long as they're beardless. How tall is she anyway? She looked like an absolute giant standing next to the others on the runway.

I'm surprised that I actually like Bianca. She's just the right amount of cattiness without being too stank. Here's hoping she doesn't turn into a major bitch by the end of the season.

I really liked Trinity's runway look and feel like she should have won. Bianca's was pretty, but it was so simple. Trinity had some space age Yara Sofia poo poo going on there and it was amazing. I had pretty much dismissed her after hearing the "Kardashian" in her name, but now I might have to change my mind. We'll see how she goes. After all, even Coco impressed me with her look once and we all saw how that turned out.

I feel like the only person not sold on Milk yet. Hot guy, but that beard put me right off, and not in a good or interesting way. I like weird, but not if it's just an isolated element pasted on top of an otherwise beautiful and cohesive look purely for the sake of being weird. That's not audaciousness, that's gimmickry. She's got talent, but I hope next time the weirdness is folded more fully into her overall presentation.

I agree, I would have loved for Milk to say why she chose the beard. There were plenty of possible reasons other than "wow my style"; my favorite overly intellectual idea is that the beard was perfect because the toga party has a uniquely masculine, frat boy imagery associated with it.

I think she was going for the whole Mathu Andersen thing, but it just didn't hit and felt arbitrary.
