Jinkx asks Roxxxy what she’s doing and she boldly, nay proudly, proclaims she’s doing Tamar Braxton, Toni Braxton’s sister. Neither Jinkx nor I have a clue in hell who Tamar is so I’ll just assume that whole moment with Detox was an impersonation.
Alyssa tries to draw out Jinkx, in a friendly way, by saying this is something she should be strong at. Jinkx says she’s hoping so leading Detox to wonder who she’ll be playing. Jinkx happily says she’s playing Little Edie and Roxxxy, Roxxxy who is doing some no-name sister of a washed-up 90s singer, is all dismissive and asking “Who?” like Jinkx is the idiot. Ah, hubris…does she not remember how badly she sucked the night before?
It looks like none of the queens know who Little Edie is (but I’m pretty sure at least Alaska knows) and Jinkx goes into an explanation, telling them about Jackie Kennedy and Little Edie’s alopecia and her mother and their eventual isolation. Most of the queens are slack-jawed with boredom and Ivy’s wondering if Jinkx is worried that not everyone will know that character. Meanwhile, no one’s concerned about Roxxxy picking some random Braxton relative. (I know there’s some show called Braxton Family Values but isn’t it on at like 11:00 am on History Channel or something?) In interview, Jinkx earnestly admits Little Edie’s a risky character to portray because not everyone will know who she is, but Jinkx thinks they should know who she is. Have I mentioned lately how much I love Jinkx?
While Jinkx does a flawless impression of Little Edie with the can of food, Lineysha and Roxxxy shit talk her in Spanish. Stay klassy, bitches. Jinkx, for her part, says that when
dumbass motherfuckers people want to judge you, you just let their judgments slide like water off a duck’s back. By the way, when I saw Roxxxy speaking in Spanish with Lineysha I looked up the contestants names on Wikipedia and saw this:
HAHAHAHAHA. Serena’s name is Myron.
Back in the workroom and while Detox deludedly thinks she can make Ke$ha funny, Jinkx informs us that Snatch Game tests your improv skills, your wit, and your impersonation skills and without those talents, according to Jinkx, a drag queen may as well not call herself a queen. ANTM music lets us know that Ru’s here for his Tim Gunn visits.
Ru doesn’t waste a moment and goes straight to Ivy, who’s doing Marilyn. Ru’s not entirely thrilled and asks how Ivy plans to make it funny since Ru explicitly said, “Most importantly, BE FUNNY.” Yeah, Ivy hasn’t really thought that out. *facepalm* Ivy tries to wing it by talking out of her ass about relating to Marilyn’s movies and Ru’s all “Whatever whatever, how is that FUNNY?” Crickets. Ru gives Ivy a Marilyn primer and points out that she was a smart “dumb blonde” and that’s a pretty fine needle to thread. Ivy just smiles and giggles because thinking is hard.
