I'm so excited for this to come back.

I got to see Trinity K Bonet last week and she was AMAZING. Jade Jolie also performed and bitch looked exactly like Taylor Swift. It was incredible. She was also really sweet and made sure to come out and take pictures and meet the fans.

Yeah, this new Untucked format is great. Now if only it would air after the show.

I'm really liking Trixie, which surprised me, and Katya. I'm also hoping Kennedy goes far because she's a local queen. The only one who really annoys me is Jasmine. I think she should have been in the bottom and gone home instead of Tempest.

Jasmine is really the only queen this season that I really want to go home. I'm actually interested to see what everyone else has to offer.

I can maybe see why Pearl was in the bottom 2 but both Kandy and Kasha deserved to be there over Trixie. And Trixie totally won that lip synch! That was just complete and utter bullshit. I don't even know why Kennedy won.

Though I watch Drag Race with my mom and she can't remember the names of most the queens for some reason so she calls Max Milk and Katya Kanye for some reason. She also loves Pearl and was really worried when she was in the bottom.

After watching Untucked, it looks like Trixie going home was a shock to literally everyone.

Yeah, I thought for sure she was a shoe in to win this week. She was fantastic, and to me, Kennedy didn't stand at anymore than Mrs Kasha Davis or Kandy Ho.

But then I remembered. Ru LOVES a ghetto queen done even moderately well, and I had forgotten that's what Kennedy did. Doing a ghetto act just cracks Ru up. I remember back to when Shangela and Coco Montrese won their comedy challenges, when they were not the strongest that week.

The only reason Kennedy stood out for me is because I hated the makeup she did for her group's video.

The best thing about tonight's episode was Miss Fame talking about her chickens.

After Miss Fame's crazy sobbing in Untucked I like her even more. I hope she gets a message from her chickens at home.

Yeah, I kind of liked Ginger at first but now I'm over her. It seems like the main show is trying to give her a winner's edit but Untucked is giving her a villain edit. It almost seems like her and Violet are trading roles.

I thought Pearl should have won but Ginger and Kennedy were good too. Though I agree Ginger relied too much on food and other jokes that had been done before.

I'm happy my beautiful Chicken Queen Fame was safe. I'm not sad to see Max go but I am a little surprised. I really hope they don't bring her back next week because what would even be the point? If that was the case they should have just done a double shantay. Trixie is the only one who got an edit to make it look like she didn't deserve to leave (all the queens talking about how shocked they were that she left, getting talking head praising her lip synch) so I think it will probably be her that comes back.

For a moment I was actually worried that Jasmine was going to come back and I would have quit. But everything turned out how it should have.

I don't really get the judges' love for Kennedy. I thought her's and Jasmine's look was just as boring as Miss Fame's and Kandy's.

This episode was weird for me because while I think the right person went home it also kind of felt unjustified? I feel like had Ru not decided to judge in pairs (which at this point in the competition, I think they should be judged individually) Pearl would have been in the bottom instead of Trixie. It also seems like Tango/Vogue is an obvious winner combination and Hodoe/Robot feels like an obvious bottom 2 combination. I really can't imagine anyone pulling that off incredibly well.

Whaaat Pearl's runway look was top three easily if not second best.

Yeah but going off what the judges said, I felt like they were harsher on Pearl than on Trixie. And runway only matters half the time. After watching Untucked, I definitely think the decision to judge in pairs was deliberate to get the outcome we got. But, like I said, even if I don't really think Trixie deserved to be in the bottom for that challenge (and I personally think she won the lip synch) I'd rather see Pearl and Ginger continue in the competition. I love Trixie but for whatever reason she shined more outside of the challenges and in confessionals as opposed to where it really counted.

My dream top 3 is Katya, Pearl and Violet with Katya winning. If it's Ginger, Pearl and Violet, which it seems like it will be, I want Pearl to win but I think it will go to Ginger.

I feel like the biggest problems this season have been the extremely obvious producer interference (Trixie, Max and Katya eliminations and Ginger's continued success) and the focus on the goddamn acting/scripted challenges. The only memorable challenges this season have been the conjoined twins and the half drag.

I'm hoping Violet or Pearl win but I'm pretty sure it will be Ginger.

The way RuPaul says "gif" may be the biggest tragedy of the season.

It's going to be interesting to see who wins because I think Pearl is winning the social media vote and Ginger has the least votes by FAR. I think Ru wants to crown Ginger but it will piss of the fan base if he does. I wonder if he's willing to risk a majority of angry fans. After this flop of a season, I'm thinking he is.

So Ru is having a crossover of sorts between his shows. The next episode of Skin Wars has the contestants painting drag queens. I very definitely saw Alyssa Edwards in the preview and I think Yara Sofia. A death drop naturally ensues on the reveal stage.

I'm pretty sure I also saw Jessica Wild and Laganja.

Vivienne Pinay got married on Face Off last night. That makes two reality shows she's been on where the contestants that worked on her ended up in the bottom looks.
