So I’m gonna stop calling these things reviews and call them what they are: recaps. With commentary of course. This one is gonna be pretty short though because I waited until the actual last minute to write this. Okay this was the second episode and we got the real tea on Adore Delano. There had been rumors for months and we got some answers. Oh yeah, we got some answers. This is the point where you’ll want to stop reading if you do not want spoilers. kthx!
There was no mini challenge this week so lets get right into the main challenge which was Snatch Game! So early in the competition, non? Let’s cut to the chase…Adore Delano was having a hard time getting in front of the judges and decided to go home early. I can understand that because like I said last time, Michelle was very harsh. I mean she did the whole on camera apology thing and said it wasn’t personal, but that critique was quite mean. That being said, I still wish she would have stuck around but this does explain her absence from all of the promotional stuff.
Detox’s decided to be Nancy Grace for the Snatch Game. I think Detox gave it a great effort! The look was all the way together, the accent was a little off, but the feel of Nancy Grace was there. She definitely improved from her first Snatch Game appearance as Kesha but unfortunately got overshadowed by some others. Her latex look for the runway was amazeballs. She looked SO GOOD. And that tuck?? Chile, please…that outfit alone should have saved her from being in the bottom this week.
Alaska was brilliant. as. Mae. effing. West. Yes! I enjoyed every minute of her performance. She was quick, witty, used a lot of catchphrases and said a bunch of shit Mae West WISHES she could have gotten away with in her day. She deserved to be in the top 2 for sure. Alaska’s runway look was just okay to me, if Tatianna’s was considered plain, I feel hers should have been as well. Plus we could see the lace on her lacefront. But the outfit wasn’t terrible.
Roxxxy Andrews had planned on being Sofia Vergara, which I would have loved to see. The little bit of accent we got to hear when Ru came into the workroom sounded fine to me. However, she got spooked and decided to be Alaska and it didn’t pan out well. Since she had no time to practice all she could manage to do was keep saying “Hyeeeeee!” and it didn’t’ work so well. She looked great tho. I thought Roxxxy also slayed with her latex dress. It hugged all the curves and swerves. Pow!
Alyssa Edwards was hilarious as Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest. This queen answered the first question with “Are you trying to embarrass me in front of these reporters?” Yes! I. loved. it. So I was surprised she wasn’t one of the top people. I mean I know it’s the top two and all of that stuff, but I wanted to hear the judges give her some high praise for that one because it was so good! I mean, I’m glad she was safe but she deserved some praise. Her latex outfit was cute but not my favorite of the night.
Tatianna had a lot to live up to since she won the first Snatch Game EVAR! But her Ariana Grande fell pretty flat and she missed some opportunities to really be funny which is sad because I was rooting for her. I thought her latex outfit was okay and it looked just like Katya’s outfit from the first day. The hair and face were gorgeous as always.
Ginger Minj was Tammy Faye Bakker. She did an okay job, but like Tatianna, I expected more from her as the winner of her season’s Snatch Game. It wasn’t really bad, but she was totally overshadowed. Her runway lewk was stunning, she looked so good. The color was so different and the way it fit her was perfect with that soft blonde hair.
Katya is STILL bae. She made me want to know more about Bjork. Before this all I knew of her was that weird swan dress she wore on a red carpet at some point. But Katya was so funny that it didn’t matter if I knew about Bjork or not. That’s the point anyway, isn’t it. Her latex runway outfit was so good, so cute, very different and the colors were on point. YAS! She was the other top 2 person and it was well deserved.
Phi Phi O’Hara chose to do Teresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium for hers and she was really great too. She was funny, she stayed on task with the character, she was funny and yeah. It was good. Her runway look was a little boring compared to the others but it was cute.
The queens were sent back to deliberate with Katya and Alaska having to choose which of the bottom three would go home if they won the lip synch. The three people on the bottom were Roxxxy, Detox, and Tatianna. Anyone with a brain could see that if Alaska won the lip synch she was not gonna send home the other members of Rolaskatox. It wasn’t going to happen..so I hoped that Katya would win just to see what would have happened.
The lip synch was actually kind of boring but Alaska won and sent Tatianna home. BUT. Tatianna got that same revenge message from Rupaul and we still have no idea what any of that means…it’s a mystery. But we will find out all about it in due time. Hopefully…
