Honestly I thought Aquaria should have been in the bottom instead of Monet X Change but what do I know.

e: lol Monet X Change is now the second queen to break a lightbulb on the stage, after Robbie Turner. Although when Robbie did it I believe he had been drugged and then was abducted by a producer etc. etc. joke about the lies

T shirt and shorts are fine as long as it's a 5 inch inseam. Nothing touching or below the knee. Hockey jersey and jeans, lose the jeans, wear a thong and high heels. No longer basic.

wat

Monet delivered an okay lip-sync, this is her third time in the bottom and she hasn't won any challenges.

Kameron gave a very good lip-sync, this is her second time in the bottom (and she had a straight guy for the makeover), and she's won a challenge.


That was absolutely the right elimination decision.

Have we had queens do makeovers on straight guys before? I forget. The girls that got the straight guys had a bit more of a challenge and it's interesting how that turned out. Cookie was absolutely feeling it, Cracker did a great job on her makeup which was part of that. Kelly Michaels was kind of what you'd expect from a straight guy makeover, a bit reserved and underwhelming.

I loved Cookie's transformation from reserved, bearded "oh no it's a shy straight guy" to absolutely gorgeous and slutty queen.

It's almost always been straight guys for the makeover challenges. Like season 3 where Alexis had that straight guy who was really turned on by how he looked in drag. They were all straight. Or that season (I forget which) where they had gay military guys, and the one older guy said he killed Judy Garland.

I think this might have been the first time where it was a mix of straight and gay guys.

Season 1 was women fighters.
Season 2 was older men.
Season 3 was athletes.
Season 4 was dads.
Season 5 was gay military.
Season 6 was marriages.
Season 7 was eliminated contestants.
Season 8 was little women.
Season 9 was RPDR crew.

She was living for herself. I think that's one of the best makeovers we've had.

Monet I never expected her to win but I really love watching her on the show. I do think Aquaria should have been in the bottom over her....but Monet's been in the bottom twice and Aquaria's not been low at all until now. It was a really loving good lipsync, but Monet never would have survived being in the bottom three times....even though she's been so great the last few weeks. I love watching Kameron do her thing, she's such a FUN performer.

Next week looks loving GOOD.

I thought aquaria did worse than Kameron. Her daughters dress was a piece of cloth jammed under a corset and the makeup was pretty much what you'd get if you went to the MAC store to get beat. They said Kameron loving brought it in the lip sync.

I'm glad ru is in the werk room again but they should not let her do that much cocaine before she goes in.

Now that I'm home and at a keyboard, I'm shocked (SHOCKED) that Aquaria wasn't in the bottom two. I think you could make a case for either Kameron (my choice) or Monet being the other one, but if it was Aquaria v Kameron there would have been a good chance that Kameron went home so I guess I'll live with this. Feh.

I agree. The outfit was very lame for Aquaria, especially the 'ermine'. I think Kameron's missteps were mostly styling choices that didn't work out. I did like her outfit at least. I didn't feel the chemistry between Aquaria and her guy at all, unlike with Monet. Plus in the video he basically didn't do anything.

I think Eureka's boy had the worst makeup though. I don't think she's used to painting others.

Holy moly that was a fun episode, right from the jump.

Monet finally went back to the big hair and looked amazing but it was all too late.

I honestly think the bottom two made sense!
DEFINITELY agree that Aquaria's partner's look was dissonant and much lower effort than Aquaria herself, but independently the girls looked great. The makeup was good, the outfits were on point, they just had no connection between them besides "They are both white and red."

Comparatively, I think the judges were correct on Monet and Kameron's criticisms.
Their looks were disconnected from one another AND they were far too simple and basic for this point in the competition.
Frankly I was not surprised at all by Monet doing this, she is hilarious and great but she did NOT come prepared drag wise, and it's showed all season. I was much more surprised at how basic and uninspired Kameron's outfits were. Her aesthetic is all about being big and flashy and feminine, a few pieces of cloth tossed on with no embellishment whatsoever was pretty startling.


ALL OF THAT SAID, I'm still very frustrated by the extremely generous edit Eureka is getting. She is a strong competitor and many weeks she has absolutely killed it, and also she is getting away with murder.
This post from reddit pretty much sums it up.

Whenever people complain about a queen doing well not being versatile enough on the runway or sticking to the same comedy schtick/jokes I just say

BIANCA DEL RIO?

Bianca just has the benefit of being way more likeable than Eureka so I guess that's why people don't care she won a whole season never being in the bottom despite only changing her silhouette once.
