I think it's safe to say Madonna runways are officially cursed on Rupaul's Drag Race. If Charlie was still around, she could've let the girls borrow one of her million Madonna outfits from her YouTube channel .

Edit: Actually, Charlie posted a pic on Instagram on her Madonna outfit and we would've seen two Matadors on this stage. I don't get what it is with Madonna and queens managing to pic identical outfits. Here is Charlie's look in case you were curious.

That was a decent Snatch Game, but like everything this season it seemed a little bit too short.

I found it painful. When a bone dry Marlena Dietrich is your second best act, you know it was a troubled panel. Peppermint and CLF should have had blankets thrown over them like sleeping parakeets after the first round.

Past contestants and Youtubers should be off limits. I'm willing to bet that Valentina's edit was super kind because I don't know what she could have done after those two lines.

What exactly is Sasha's story that put her in the top 2? I think Sasha earned that top 2.

Snatch Game was good. There were no standouts like Alaska's Mae West, Jynxx's Little Edie or Chad's Cher. But most of the queens were actually kind of funny.

My favorite moment of that lip sync was Ru just loving everything Peppermint was giving her, deciding that she should check out what Cynthia was doing, glanced over, had a big nope, and went right back for Peppermint.

And this episode proves to me that maybe Cynthia should never have been brought back, and definitely should not have won Miss Congeniality. She doesn't try with her looks. She doesn't try with the challenges. And she doesn't even try with the lip syncs. Second week in a row where she didn't know the words to the song, and as someone else pointed out, that split was desperate.

Girl is a lazy as gently caress queen, and thinks that she can get by on personality alone. But she's no Bob. Bob got through on personality alone. But Bob's personality is likeable.

Who would you have given Miss Congeniality to? Top 3 is now off limits, no one else on that season was consistently nice.

I feel the same about queens impersonating queens. I am over it and hope next season it doesn't happen.

As for the episode, I wasn't feeling the Snatch Game. I liked Liza, but even that wasn't memorable.

And how is it that we have repeating outfits again? How did that happen? Madonna has been performing since before I was born, yet these queens from both seasons make it seem like she has 4 looks.

I feel like a moron because I don't get why duplicate runway theme looks are any sort of problem. They aren't making these outfits in the workroom, there is a finite amount of wardrobe they can bring for a dozen pre-announced challenge categories and contestants coordinating prior to the show would be against the rules.

If anything its better because you can see different interpretations of the same look and judge the merit of execution.

From a strictly competitive standpoint I don't know why you'd put yourself up for the comparison of "who wore it better" when you could get really creative and find something on the fringes that you can rock solo.

But when you bring a massive golden headpeice from the superbowl look, is it a smart bet as a contestant for a 100k prize to discard that and desperately scrape something together from a fabric wall should someone bring one as well?

You'd do far better wearing your polished, prepared look that you've rehearsed and worked the kinks out of rather than roll the dice on wit and hot glue.

Beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure


It was definitely CLF's time to go. In all honesty, I love the drag queen, but she was consistently outclassed by these girls; her makeup was from another era of drag and too harsh, her outfits weren't huge and detailed or super creative, and her only catchphrase was "Cucu." I was disappointed. I expected more. Sofia Vergara should have been EASY to do. She's cartoonish, she's loud, you have so much to mine for jokes, from her start as a Pepsi model to Modern Family and you did squat.

I'm so glad Farrah stayed. I -like- her. She's cute, her runways slay, and her Untucked shows attitude I don't see as much on the regular show. And I'm SO glad she stood up to Nina! I see a lot of love for Nina on this forum and I think she's one of those queens getting Top 3, but I'm kind of mad at that. Her Madonna look was sloppy, in fact, a lot of her looks are sloppy. Shea deserved that spot. But Ru loves a good, "Your only enemy is yourself," ghetto queen story. I'm over it. I've been over it.

Also, I hope Peppermint takes what they say to heart. She wore that weird slit up the thigh pink skirt twice and pink the entire way through. She needs some versatility in that runway.

Forgive me thread for not giving up on this, but...

I don't get how the four kimonos are a different situation in terms of the competitive choices. As 1 of the 4 kimono's you'd be loving up tactically to drop everything and turn to the fabric wall to create a whole new look within a very narrow category, from scratch, with a hard reality-show time limit, and then thinkup and paint new makeup to match, on a show where you are not at all given extra points for tacking a higher degree of difficulty than a contestant that just zipped into their pre-planned idea. The judging panel only cares about execution, perfecting your own makeup and detail on your original Madonna kimono is the least risky and smartest move by far. The competition format does not reward spontaneous creativity if its not also executed to high standards.

Watch Strike a Pose on Netflix. It follows up on the group of guys in the video and the Blonde Ambition tour 25 years later. Really good. And Kevin Stei can still get it. In fact, I think he looks hotter today than he did back then.

It wasn't actually. That was producer intervention. I forget which one of the queens said this, I think Thorgy, but apparently they brought an alternate look in case someone else was also doing the kimono. When they saw 3 other girls pull out kiminos, they went to change to their other look, and the producers came in and said no, they wanted her to stick with the kimono.
