The week we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived!
For the mini challenge, the girls had to dragify a Snuggie knock off into high fashion realness. Some of the queens ruled this challenge: Coco, Detox, Alaska (lets be real you all loved her lion realness mask) and Alyssa all looked good in a “formerly gorgeous now old mistress of a geisha house in a pink kimono kind of way.”
After the mini challenge, Ru told the girls exactly what they wanted to hear: this week’s main challenge would be the Snatch Game.
Alyssa wasn’t too thrilled though, but as Jinkx reminded her, you KNOW Snatch Game is coming when you audition for the show. Every contestant should have prepared a character (we already have ours. Justin = either Paula Dean or Sharon Osbourne, and Martin = either Britney or Sophia Vergara, GET INTO IT).
The panel was slightly underwhelming compared to last year, but definitely better than season three’s train wreck of a game show.
Jinkx KILLED it as Little Edie and definitely made everyone who’s never seen Grey Gardens go out and watch it. She was hilarious and like a true improv star played off of the other girls’ mistakes.
Alaska looked JUST like Lady Bunny and really nailed her personality. Her voice did sound a little bit like a dying bullfrog, but we don’t hold that against her.
Roxxxy’s Tamar Braxton was actually hilarious, while some others, mainly Ivy’s Marilyn, Detox’s Ke$ha, and Leneysha’s train wreck impersonation of Celia Cruz made us cringe. I’m sorry Ivy but you missed an opportunity for a Kennedy joke that Ru HANDED you on a silver platter, and let Jinkx take the glory).
Alyssa. What was with that Katy Perry? Come on, girr. How hard is it to be a blowup doll?
The safe girls were Alyssa (who was basically a plastic bag drifting through the wind, but had immunity this week), Jade who did a pretty good job of Taylor Swift, and Coco, who looked and sounded JUST like Janet Jackson, which is why she should be totes mort that she was only just safe, and not funny at all.
The Chicken of the Sea
To no one’s surprise, Jinkx won the challenge despite Michelle telling her she isn’t bringing enough glam to the runway, but whatever, she’s hilarious and you can all just DEAL.
Let’s face it, RuPaul and friends have always favored the glamazons. It’s getting a little old – variety is the spice of life AND drag. We could use more queens like Jinkx.
When it came time for the bottom, Ivy’s goldfish greatness saved her drowning Marilyn, and she was safe, putting Lineysha up against Detox. We knew this was gonna be good! Detox is one of the fiercest to ever be on the show, and we know Lineysha can turn it out when she wants to, and the two brought Cher the house down.
Now everyone knows Cher is Justin’s deity and number 1 diva goddess and that after the nuclear Apocalypse all that’ll be left living on earth will be cockroaches and Cher, seated on a throne made of lesser, basic bitches and their flopped albums. But, they really did pick the worst Cher song out there.
“Take Me Home,” her one attempt at Disco, was a number 1 hit in 1979 but that doesn’t mean we needed to hear it.
Tangent aside…both queens were fierce during this lip sync, but we have to say, Detox worked that bad costume out for the performance and served us the C.U.N.T we expect in our next drag superstar.
Lineysha was sent packing and no one lost sleep over it.
Somewhere in Pittsburgh, Sharon Needles is cackling manically as she sees that the hex she put on Lineysha worked. Never come for a witch’s girlfriend in an episode of Untucked.
Pittsburgh queens= 1, Puerto Rican queens= 0 with no title yet. What is that word Lineysha used? Desastre?
Next week the girls have to work together to record a “We Are The World” style charity song, and LAWD knows these bitches probably can’t sing a note. Should be interesting…
