Wow. This week was a doozy, and we’re sure you’re just as shocked as we were.
For this week’s challenge, the girls took a lie detector test – the results of the test paired everyone up with their polar opposite queen.
No surprise, Phi Phi and Sharon were put together. Chad was paired with Dida Ritz, and Willam with Latrice.
The girls had to create and rehearse custom verses to a new song, “Better Than You”, and perform the song live on the runway.
Sharon and Phi Phi, to no one’s surprise, couldn’t agree on anything at first. Phi Phi acted like a bratty cat trying to protect her litter box from someone else, while Sharon struggled to bring any of her own ideas into fruition.
Your favorites could try but they will never.
On the main stage, Willam and Latrice turned it out, with a perfectly choreographed, comical performance and won the main challenge.
They worked well together to bring their own strengths to the challenge, combining Latrice’s showgirl finess with Willam’s slutty side.
Sharon and Phi Phi focused too much on being technical. Additionally, it seemed that the two queens who can’t agree on anything ended up overcompensating by trying to keep it cordial.
Makes sense. If they hadn’t been overly nice to each other for the sake of this challenge they probably would have killed each other.
Before the bottom two queens LSFYL, Willam started to vom at the back of the main stage.
Once she composed herself, Ru narrowed the bottom two down to Sharon and Phi Phi.
No exaggeration…this was one of the most nerve-wracking, high-energy LSFYL’s we’ve ever seen on RuPaul’s Drag Race (and there have been some good ones).
At first, we were a little worried that Phi Phi had Sharon beat, but that only lasted about 3 seconds until her shoes came off. At that point she just looked like a man in a wig….then her wig came flying off and she just looked like a man.
Sharon maintained her whole outfit and stayed true to herself, getting plenty of laughs out of Ru and the rest of the judges as she turned it out. We were genuinely proud of this bitch. She slayed without having to go over the top like Phi Phi.
And then it happened….
We were all sitting there waiting for Ru to say “Sharon, shante you stay…” when out of nowhere we heard “Willam please come to the front of the stage.” Without any further explanation, Ru said that it had come to her attention that the rules of the show had been broken, and for that Willam had to sashay away.
Okay, we have to say a few things about Willam. We know some of you may have found her name dropping and resume-boasting irritating. You might even hate her for it, but she’s laughing at you for getting annoyed.
Remember, this bitch comes from TV (how could you forget?). She’s not here to get all deep, she’s here to make some good TV.
If Willam was a fictional TV character, most people would likely find her overly-cocky and obnoxious persona to be funny. We think it’s hilarious, fictional or not. The second you take her seriously is the second you are making a mistake.
We should also point out that while she name drops and flat out reads the other queens, it’s never been malicious. Every time she has clocked another queen for being sloppy, she’s been right and she has never resorted to cattiness to make her point. Unlike Queefy, she calls it like she sees it without a need to put people down to make herself feel better in the process. Not to mention she has always recognized when she has messed up (five o clock shadow anyone?). Gotta give her credit for that.
But why in the hell was she eliminated? There are some theories and rumors floating around. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Note: these are theories. We know as little as everyone else as to what actually happened.
Theory 1: Drug use
Some think Willam was out of it because she was on drugs.
Likelihood: Not very. Girlfriend knows better than to do that when the cameras are rolling.
Theory 2: Eating disorder
Some believe her vomiting on the main stage was tied to some kind of eating disorder.
Likelihood: Now, we’re no doctors, but if you’re bulimic…don’t you wait to throw up? You know…maybe save it for after the show?
Theory 3: RudePaul
Some believe Willam was rude to RuPaul and got disqualified for being disrespectful.
Likelihood: Then why would Ru say “it has come to my attention”? Wouldn’t she already have known that Willam was rude to her? This also would be a lame reason to DQ someone. Not to mention, this would not explain why she was acting so odd earlier in the episode. Or why she threw up.
Theory 4: Delivery Service
Some believe that Willam was getting clothes delivered to the hotel before challenges.
Likelihood: It makes sense to DQ someone for that. Remember, Willam lives in LA where the show is filmed. But that doesn’t explain the odd behavior
Theory 4a: Cell phone use
Hm. Well, in order for theory 4 to make sense then she’d probably need a cell phone (which they’re not supposed to have). While we know this is a breach of contract we have to ask…why did Phi Phi not get DQ’d? According to a former RPDR contestant, Phi Phi admitted to having had a cell phone hidden in her hotel room.
Theory 5: Bitch was at the club
There are rumors out there saying that Willam was out the night before.
Likelihood: Well that would explain a lot…like why she was acting so out of it and why she threw up on the main stage (hangover). This is also a breach of contract.
Again, this is all speculation and we won’t find out what really happened until the reunion episode on April 30.
What we do know is what we saw on Untucked after. And what we saw was that Phi Phi is the most deeply-insecure, most venemous contestants this show has ever seen. To see her go in on Willam the way that she did was less about Willam and more about herself.
You find Willam to be a “disgusting creature?” Well, Queefy, we have news for you…that’s how America feels about you after seeing your behavior in this competition. To quote Tati:
“That is your problem. Your personality is for shit. You are the one that is face value. Your outside is gorgeous, but your insides are dark and nasty. And I don’t like you.”
