Raven tends to be told she looks like Kris Jenner, but I think Raven probably blends her makeup more than Kris.
And looks more like a natural female.
Next, the girls have to make acceptance speeches as a burger is named after them. Until then, they must ride in a crazy-fast SUV while they change their looks. They arrive at Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood where they will accept their very own signature hamburger.
Chad is very professional, Raven is a little raunchy, Juju is her usual steamy self, and Shannel tears into her burger like a man.
Delta tells the girls that he remembers having to be funny in his season and how he learned that what we personally find funny is totally different from what everyone else finds funny. Boy, do I hear ya’, girl. They ask what she did when that happened, and she reminds them she was sent home. Dun dun dunnnnn.
At The Comedy Store, the ladies hang back stage while RuRu introduces the first comedienne – Jujubee. Juju is killing it with glitter afterbirth and her name being mispronounced by her saggy-boobed grandma. Ah, Asian parents are always a hit at the comedy shows.
Chad hits the stage, kills it and doesn’t stop until the buzzer sounds. She’s awesomely funny making fun of herself and shady Mexican surgeons. She went over her time, but I don’t think that’s really going to matter too much.
Raven comes out and is able to be quite funny about her jailhouse whore experiences. She’s doing better than Chad and Juju, simply because she’s not throwing out one-liners, but is delivering a solid story that you would hear from any professional stand-up comedian.
Shannel sounds like a dude when she first comes out and just continues to plummet. She definitely benefits from a very warmed-up audience full of enthusiastic pity laughter.
You see this afro on my head. It’s an afro, because I’m black and it’s blonde because I’m white. Get it?
I say round 3 goes to Raven. By a comfortable margin.
Back in the workroom, the girls discuss the amount of pressure they are under on this special season of Drag Race. Chad claims to be the past, present, and future of drag while Shannel thinks her experience as a circus clown alone entitles her to the win.
Ru comes out wearing a dress made out of Michael Kors’s wattle.
Runway flies by so fast that I can hardly see what each girl is wearing…
…that is, except for Shannel who comes out looking like the lobster who ate New York.
Everyone loved Chad while Michelle reads Juju for her shoes and interview. Everyone hated Shannel’s comedy, but Michelle loves her drag. Raven is read for her makeup during the challenges, but everyone praises her for her drop-dead comedy. Raven, of course, is able to laugh through the hits at her makeup, because she is a stah, honey!
