Just Say Julie says, with a little awe, that Jinkx is the “Meryl Streep of drag queens,” while Ru appreciatively turns into male Ru to let us know she turned it OUT. Michelle sighs that Jinkx was totally committed, should be committed, but wants to see ultra-glam. Not that her look is ugly. Santino thinks we all forgot how he rode poor Pandora (and I don’t even like her) for her lousy fashion, and compares Jinkx to her in a complimentary way. Ru says she liked the dress but Michelle’s still got a bug up her ass and barks about how Jinkx thought that was big hair. It’s okay, Michelle. She’s 24. She’ll learn. But SILENCE. Ru’s made her decision so bring back..her…girls.
Flashing back to when she was as young and adorable as Jinkx.
Queens are back and Roxxxy’s called safe with little introduction or fanfare because they have to move on to Jinkx. Ru says she brought “50 shades of Grey Gardens,” so condragulations, Jinkx, YOU WIN! She gets a bunch of big, sparkly jewelry but the win was enough for Jinkx because winning Snatch Game was a life dream coming true. Alaska’s also called safe and she demurely leaves the stage.
Lineysha lacked spice so she’s up for elimination. She’s not happy. Ivy’s Marilyn was bland while Detox’s Ke$ha was blah so who’s up for elimination? I figured if it was Ivy, Lineysha would stay but if it was Detox, so long Lineysha and sure enough, it’s Detox. She looks a little surprised while Ivy looks really surprised and leaves the stage before Ru can change her mind.
Detox tells us she’s known for her “unique” lip synching style and she’s ready to send Lineysha home. To help her along, she gets one of Cher’s minor disco hits, “Take Me Home.” I know her jaw wiggle wasn’t very popular with the commentariat, but I thought it was funny. She clearly likes to camp up her lip synchs so it was a little more than just the wiggle, which could get really old, really fast. Of course, the song also played into Lineysha’s “fishy” style and she was sexy and a much better padder than Detox who’s ass always looks like she shoved two halves of a giant Nerf basketball in her drawers. But can we all just appreciate how they both actually put forth some effort? After last week’s confused wandering this was like a Cockette show.
Pretty girls are pretty.
But what did Ru think? Please, Detox is still riding some coattails and Lineysha hasn’t put down the bong since the second challenge so buh-bye, Lineysha.
To her credit, she does clap for Detox and says she’s proud to be a member of the Drag Race family. She was a weird one to figure out and I wish she’d had more Nina or Jessica in her than Kenya Michaels, but she went out with some grace, so Good luck, Lineysha. See you when they bring you back because Michelle and Santino “decide” they let you go too soon only to get booted on the same episode. (Not a spoiler.)
Hasta luego, Lineysha.
