Michelle feels Chad is predictable, but Santino feels it means she’s polished. Santino and Ru feel that Juju is too reserved, but Michelle fights for her. Michelle is able to find something nice to say about Shannel which seemed to be impossible for anyone else. Raven is given many props for her comedy, originality, and oozing sex appeal. It sounds like it shall be a battle between Chad and Raven. I love Jujubee so very much, but I’m OK with this.
Juju and Shannel are told they’ll be sashaying away. Poor Juju. Chad and Raven must serve up the world’s greatest LSFYL of all time. Raven has flashbacks to her final LSFYL at her tragic loss to Tyra Sanchez. What it really comes down to is sexy versus sharp, because they are equally fierce.
And the winna’ is…
And now for our final Untucked…
Backstage, the girls dive into their big, pink, fuzzy box only to find a bowl loaded with orange Tic-Tacs, which can only mean one thing…interviews with RuRu!
We learn that Jujubee is a people-pleaser and Raven feels that she’s been letting RuRu down. She even sheds tears! Boy, have Raven turned over a new leaf since her last season, or what? She’s so damn human and likeable. Chad struggles with a need to be perfect, which brings Ru to reveal her human side. Ru deals with a strong need to be perfect and has to remind herself it’s not going to happen. Gee, I guess I could take a page from that book.
Then Ru pulls a Barbara Walters by asking Shannel if she’s always been so confident. That brings out the story of losing her mother back in 2009 as the result of a massive heart attack. His mother was his rock and losing that rock kicked the legs right out from under him. Again, man do I know that loss. Poor Shannel. He may be bombastic, but he has definitely suffered a pain I hope to never go through again.
Ru leaves the girls who are beside themselves to see RuPaul stripped down and real. The girls get a little upset at Shannel when she shares that she never expected get this far. I can’t blame her, because I’m one of those who likes to set the bar really low so they come out on top most of the time. It’s a form of positive pessimism, if you will.
So, what did y’all think? I hope Jessica Wild’s premature post didn’t ruin it for anyone else. Tell all, Gasmii!
I’d also like to take this opportunity to say “thank you”, “mwah”, and “good bye”. I’m hanging up my recapping hat, for now at least. I allow my life to get overwhelming because I am psychopath (OK, not literally. Literally I have OCD) and take on too much, insist I be really great at it, and then burst into crazy flames. Maybe once my baby starts school I’ll have more time to commit to writing while still getting my real jobs done. Until then, my dears, you’ve been great and it’s been real.
