We been bamboozled.
Before that, though, let’s get to what happened in the episode.
The queens gather in the work room to discuss how awesome Chad and Sharon are and how much Phi Phi sucks, at least that’s what I heard in my head. then its time for the final challenge – shooting the video for Glamazon. Sharon is, unsurprisingly, somewhat tragic at choreography but a good actress, Chad is a professional, if somewhat prissy and girly, and Phi Phi sucks. Shooting the choreography doesn’t go well for Sharon, but we do learn that Mathu Anderssen has decided to go for a new, Grizzly Adams meets Doomsday Preppers look. Bold move.
The next day the queens get to meet with Raja and Tyra Sanchez to run lines and chit chat or talk shit about each other, but no one really does. Except they do briefly discuss what an asshole Phi Phi is until Chad gives her the out of being “young” and Tyra latches on to that because martyr complexes among bitches never die. Then Chad and Raja get emotional because they’ve been friends forever and everyone loves Chad. Lunch is lunch where we get to know a queen better over orange Tic Tacs, although we do get some background on Chad and Phi Phi. Then it’s on to the acting portion of the video. Per Mathu, Chad’s prissy but takes direction well, Sharon takes a punch and Phi Phi hammed it up so much that Mathu actually laughed at her. I love it when he does that.
So it’s on to the runway. Chad’s looking like an intergalactic showgirl/hooker Chad, Phi Phi’s looking like Fat Ass Phi Phi Flintstone from Bedrock, and Sharon has tentacles. Really. They jibber jabber with the judges, they watch the video they get good and bad critiques and then they’re dismissed so the judges can continue giving non-commital critiques in private and no one’s giving anything away.
Queens come back and Ru decides to break all the rules by having all three lip synch and it’s still looking like a toss up between Chad and Sharon with Phi Phi spinning and flapping and flailing like the asshole she is.
But all that was prelude. Finally, RuPaul’s ready to announce the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race is….
