Hi! It’s Tamara, I will be filling in for the fabulous The Lady Cocotte tonight as she actually has a life this holiday weekend. I am still UTTERLY DEVASTATED from last week and am dead serious when I say I am hoping that something happens where Valentina comes back this week.
We start with the tearful goodbye message from Valentina,”I love you with all of my heart. Kissses.” Everyone is shocked that Valentina went home. The girls tell Nina she earned her win on the Lip Sync challenge. Nina Bonina Debbie Downer Brown says she feels like it is her fault that Valentina went home because she was stuck doing the pilot with her. Everyone is tired of trying to build Nina up. It’s a competition, not group therapy session.
The guest judges this episode are designer Ugo Zaldi and rapper, Ke$ha.
Maxi Challenge: Crew Makeovers
The girls have to turn their crew member into their drag sister. There should be an attempt at family resemblance.
Nina is a drag queen who doesn’t sew. So clearly she is going to attempt to make a look for her guy. She is also going to do the whole Skeletor face thing again. Nina and her one note looks and her time management issues is in trouble. Shea Coulée’s crew person cannot walk. At all. Trinty wants to make her guy a swimsuit. She wants him to tuck.
Ru comes in to do his Tim Gunn critique of their progress. There seems to be a lot of love better Ru and the crew. The crew is very open to the makeover and also a bit terrified. They all seem to want to make Ru happy. Then Ru tells them that each pair has to perform a lip sync to his song, Click Clack. Wow, no pressure there guys. Good Luck, and don’t fuck it up!
Nina is already fucking it up. She want’s to make two outfits from scratch. Did I mention she doesn’t know how to sew? She has her guy lay down on the ground on top of some fugly lime green polyester and draws his outline like the cops used outline dead bodies. I am furious that she is still here and Valentina is not.
Trinty ends up doing the tucking for her guy. She must have used half a roll of duct tape #FierceTuck
When they introduce the judges, the chyron misspells Zaldi’s name. He has made a custom gown for Ru that is stunning and has all of her catch phrased written on it in Japanese.
Trinity and her drag sister were fantastic. The crew member was just as good as Trinity.
Shea’s crew member was a complete disaster. The blue wig was in her face and she could not walk.
Alexis and her sister were pretty damn good. The crew member’s walk wasn’t the best, but the both looked like something off of Star Trek.
Nina had to abandon her sewing project and they both wore black bustiers, bunny ears and the odd face make up. It seemed last minute. Because it was.
Sasha Velour and her sister were great. I loved their well put together looks. They looked like sisters, but not identical twins.
Peppermint, and her sister wintergreen were cute. Wintergreen was a bit butch, but totally into it.
They edited all of their lip syncs into one rendition of the song. The two clear front runners were Trinity and Sasha. Shea and Nina will probably be in the bottom. I think Alexis and Peppermint will be safe.
Trinity won because their dance steps were really intricate and they bought knew how to strut. But as I was searching for photos on social media there was a lot of outrage that it should have been Sasha and her sister. See the tweet above. There also seemed to be some disagreement from the judges about this as well. Zaldi was mesmerized by Sasha’s fashion sense. It would not surprise me if he used Sasha for something in the future. The crew member was shocked to receive a $2000 gift certificate for custom suits.
Rupaul saw the top and bottom queens just like I did. That never happens. So the two black queens have to lip sync for their life. I swear if Nina stays I will scream. Who she blowing?
Nina started off kind of reserved but her lip sync was on point and she had some good moves. Shea was good but a bit of a try hard. Like kind of over the top. I could see Nina winning again. But she doesn’t.
Nina writes her goodbye message, “Debbie Downer is gone, Sue me! Shea Coulee I hope you struggling cleaning this! Lulz.”
God willing, and the creek don’t rise, Lady C will be back to recap next week for the final five.
