Amber feels beautiful and can’t wait for her brother to see her. He’s so excited he says he’s “shitting rainbows…ROYGBIV, there it is!” HAHAHAHAHA. Mary feels beautiful and hopes her husband sees that she’s still got it, and he’s all “Hey, if she feels sexy…I reap the benefits.” Aw, that was weirdly romantic? Sinead, whatever. Her friend, oh god. No wonder they’re friends.
Queens come out and, well, like I said…it’s easy to play which one didn’t win her season:
I get that she’s popular but her look is very Happy Hands at Home. Sorry ‘bout it. Meanwhile, Ru is dashingly corporate in his glen plaid suit, with blue and white checked shirt and orange and blue striped tie. (Go Gator!)
As handsome as he is pretty.
Ru introduces the falculty: Lady Bunny (natch), Adam Cook who was a better choreographer than I gave him credit for, and Holly Robinson Peete from 21 Jump Street. Sure, that was 25 years ago and Ru says she’s on Mike and Molly now, but which one co-starred Johnny Depp?
This week’s class featured full-figured gals who learned to put some nerve in their swerves and curves so let the draguation commence.
Amber was the prettiest on the runway and she had some sass in her speech but I didn’t notice she was wearing flat sandals the first time I watched. Even if she has a perfectly good, and medical, reason to do so it’s also the kiss of death. Mary did well but she’s still the most awkward of the three and Sinead, whatever. But how did they do on the oral examination?
Ru is in love with Amber’s wig and asks if it’s heavy. Amber just plays with it and says “Three Advils. That’s how you do.” Beauty is pain, Miss Amber. Then Ru asks who she has in the audience and she introduces her brother…Miss Geneva. Ru wants to know who’s the fiercest queen now, and he says…Geneva. Bunny tells her she’s gorgeous, Adam is impressed with how much more confidence she has and Holly tells her she’s beautiful and has an ebony glow. Aw, she should win, right?
Next is Mary and Ru wants to know how Stella has affected her self-perception. Mary says that when she saw herself in drag she thought what was she waiting for, because the world is waiting for her. Holly tells her she had a glide and confidence to her walk that was beautiful and Bunny liked how sensual she was with her hand movements and working her cape.
Ugh, Sinead. And before you say I specifically looked for a bad screencap, first, yes. I wasn’t going out of my way to make her look pretty and second, there were no pretty screencaps. She mugged and hammed and cheesed the whole way. At least this one’s funny. She’s still hamming and cheesing so Ru just vagues that she’s feeling it and throws it to the falculty. Adam tells her to bring the same sass from the runway to the dance and Holly tells her Judy Jetson’s got nothing on her. She can’t win, right?
