RuPaul’s Drag Race Recap: Ru Hollywood Stories
As the girls head into the workroom, things feel different. For the first time in several episodes, no one was shocked at who went home. They read Mrs Kasha Davis’ goodbye message (“Love to the moon and back, MKD”) and Kandy shares an interesting theory. “I’m starting to feel that they’re putting me on the bottom to, like, so I could just take out the other girls.” Violet Chachki gives her the side eye for all of us. What would reality tv be without delusion? They talk about who won DESPY awards. They all make jokes about Violet winning the “Shadiest Shade” award. She’s over it. “I just want you guys to know, I’m going to be working on the way I come across.” Pearl leans over and mutters, “I won’t hold my breathe.” Shade on shade. Congrats go out to Max and Pearl for their win. Miss Fame looks like she’s ready to jump over the table and strangle Pearl. “I was not expecting Pearl to pull thru that strong,” Miss Fame explains in her talking head. “The energy is so toxic…I don’t even want it near me.”
As the girls wait for RuPaul’s “she done already done had herses” message, they start to talk about sex. Max literally removes herself from the conversation. “These girls, they’re all so vulgar. I mean, they’re all very… sexual.” You can practically feel how uncomfortable she is. There must be a back story to this. Even the other Queens notice it. “Max wasn’t having it, dahling,” Violet Chachki drawls. “It’s, like, girl, calm down.”
RuPaul lets the girls know that America’s Next Drag Superstar has to stay calm no matter what pops up. “Oh, pit crew!” The boys enter the workroom and they just keep coming. The pit crew have added to their numbers for this challenge. They’re all wearing hats along with their undies. The hats have different names on them like: Pete, Mary, Papi, etc. “I’m taking in the buffet right now,” Ginger Minj says. “Every size and color. It’s like Epcot for the thirsty bitches.” Miss Fame pretends to take off her wedding ring. Max looks miserable.
The mini-challenge is a game called Monster in Your Pants. It’s a pretty stupid game but it allows the girls ogle some man-meat. One by one, the girls pick pit crew members to show them the card they have in their pants. Most cards have number values but one card is the monster card. The goal is to get enough number cards that you end up with the highest number in the room. But you must freeze your number (ie: stop playing) before you pull the monster card or you lose all of your points. Make sense? I warned you it was lame. I have a better game for situations like this: blur your vision and it’s all just a jumble of pretty colors. Much better…
One at a time, the girls play Monster in Your Pants. They’re having more fun than we are. Everyone keeps getting the monster card pretty quickly. It’s Katya’s turn. “I have no idea what the rules of this game are. I don’t care what they are. When do I get to b*** them?” And she gets the monster card on her first try. Finally Ginger Minj actually gets some points. She’s the only one to make it past two tries. She decides to freeze with a score of 24. Not only is it the highest score, it’s the only score. Ginger Minj wins! At least the underwear company got some good exposure for their sponsorship. Continue reading
