Alright y’all, here we go. This week was a good one and each episode it’s harder and harder to watch someone go home because everyone is so good and the judges have usually had to nitpick in order to provide critiques and pick people to be up for elimination.  I have a question though…why some weeks there is a  bottom two and other weeks a bottom three.  That’s kind of inconsistent but whatevs, won’t stop me from watching.  Anywho, let’s jump in.

Main Challenge

This week’s main challenge saw our All Stars creating sequels to movies.  The episode was titled Drag Movie Shequels.  The queens were put into groups of two in order to perform scenes.  These scenes all have off brand names probably for legal reasons, but you get the idea.  Detox and Katya had “Velma and Weezy”, Phi Phi O’Hara and Roxxxy Andrews had “Showsquirrels” and Alyssa Edwards and Alaska did “Wha’ Ha’ Happened to Baby JJ?”

For this week’s runway, they had to show a two in one ensemble. Like Ru in this gorgeous tiger fish looking thing:

The Queens

Detox and Katya

I thought their performance was really good.  Katya seemed like she had some trouble at first but then she pulled out a good performance.  Both queens really highlighted each other and were on the same wavelength with energy levels and just being batshit crazy.  I loved it.  As for the runway, Katya’s outfit was cute, I liked that she had a detachable bang for her hair and she did a whole “Rosemary’s Baby” motif but compared to some of the others it was kinda meh.  Detox’s runway look was very pretty, I loved the hood when she came out and I loved each step of it in transition.  The hair and makeup were on point as well.

Phi Phi and Roxxxy

So their performance was good, expecially Phi Phi’s.  I thought Roxxxy gave it a good effort but it just wasn’t coming across as well as she probably wanted.  Look, I know a lot of people have problems with these two, but I like them and wish them good luck on All Stars.   Phi Phi as Big Versace was hilarious.  I loved her runway look as well.  She was giving me Beauty and the Beast with that one.  It was executed really well and I loved the short wavy hair.  Yes.  And you know Roxxxy DOES the reveals chile.  That outfit was so cute, the hair was beautiful, so was the makeup.  Girl, please!

Alyssa and Alaska

Alyssa is really funny offhand but maybe not as much in a rehearsed scene.  I think she would have fared well on another part but Alaska totally stole the show and was so funny and I loved every minute of it.  Alyssa’s runway look was a complete fail.  I agree that the concept was cool, but it looked bad.  Sorry girl!  Alaska came out as Lil Poundcake!  OMG that was amazeballs.  I will even forgiver her for not really doing a two in one because that was genius.

The Elimination

 

So Alaska and Phi Phi were the top two this week which came at no surprise to anyone, but I was surprised to see Katya in the bottom three.  I mean, whet?  She needed some coaching yes, but she still did a good job in the end.  We got none of the deliberation on the show this time, except on logotv.com, another inconsistency, but meh.  Okay so the lip synch was good and cute.  I thought Alaska’s makeup and outfit kind of helped her lip synch along, made it more entertaining but both did well.  In the end Alaska won and sent Alyssa Edwards packing.  It was kinda sad there were some tears, and then Alyssa got the same message as errbody else who got kicked off before.  BUT this time they showed the girls come back into the work room and they made sure to let us hear Phi Phi talking all kindsa shit about Alyssa right before revealing the four elimated queens behind the mirror.  So we still don’t know what the revenge is or what’s happening with that but they are all back.  So we’ll see.  Until next time…
