Hello, hello, hello Gasmii! This week was, shall we say, interesting. I think this season is meant to replicate the ANTM seasons 7-11 where Tyra went off the deep end but hadn’t completely given up, yet, so she picked such winners as Jaslene, McKey and Whitney and she thought “Ghost Bride” was a super awesome runway theme and that no one would notice that Saleisha looked like Tootie from Facts of Life but she’d also been kissing Tyra’s ass FOR YEARS so Tyra did her a solid and picked her in the face of bona fide modeling talent like Heather, Bianca (bitch may be a bitch but bitch takes an awesome picture) and even Chantal and her Picasso-esque symmetry. In short, the seasons when Tyra was just full-on, batshit crazy…and Raja was her makeup artist! (Hey, girl! HEY!)
So anyway, mini-challenge is the queens have to lip synch to three of Ru’s song – “Tranny Chaser,” Lady Boy” and a song called “Peanut Butter” which was pretty funny although I don’t actually think that was the plan. BUT WAIT! Just lip synching wouldn’t be nearly Banksian enough so the girls all have to make up their lips all glossy and shimmery and lip synch through a cardboard cutout of Ru. Of course they do. Three rounds, three winners. Two of the winners were kind of a surprise but the third one wasn’t because she has duck lips “naturally.”
Once the winners are picked Ru lets them know that they’re team leaders because the main challenge is to lip synch to spoken word, chosen from Untucked’s greatest hits including “This is not RuPaul’s Best Friend’s Race,” “Bitch I am from CHICAGO,” and a drunk Shangela throwing her drink in Mimi’s face. Team’s shake out as so:
Season 2: Honey Mahogany, Ivy Winters, Lineysha Sparx, Vivienne Pinay
Season 3: Alyssa Edwards, Jade Jolie, Jinkx Monsoon, Roxxxy Andrews, Serena ChaCha
Season 4: Alaska, Coco Montrese, Detox, Monica Beverly Hillz
Most are pretty good, some are surprisingly good, including (especially?) the winner, and some go for a surprising and funny twist…that still doesn’t win it for them. Oh, and one is tragic. One guess on who that is. Before they can break for the judges to deliberate one of the queens admits to being transgendered, which is a development for RPDR since transgender had been prohibited in earlier seasons. Then the bottom two queens lip synch to Rihanna and it isn’t even close.
But, gurr. Untucked. That was loud, obnoxious, hilarious, touching, bitchy, loud, louder, Alyssa starts waving her finger around and making more Miss Jane Hathaway faces while Coco reads someone for filth and back, then Detox loses her shit. OF-FIC-IAL-LY.
Full recap in a few days. Until then, you can catch up on the last recap here.
