Hello again, Gasmii! Did you enjoy this episode? Or was there maybe a little something missing? Like a bugnut crazy, little Panamian thing that really did pull all the other queens together in their collective and amusing disdain. Or was it just me that kind of found this episode a little disjointed and underwhelming? I don’t know. Child pageant queens and children’s programming really should have been, in the words of Michelle Visage, “Hilair” (And please stop, Michelle. It’s not happening.) but it just didn’t seem to completely hit the mark.
Anyway, they’re still going back into the workroom after judges panel but no one’s sobbing now that Serena’s gone so they barely acknowledge her and go straight into the mini-challenge: to pair up and tart up child-sized dolls into li’l pageant queens. The usual suspects do well while Jinkx is starting to establish herself as the MVP because no matter what team she’s on or who she’s paired with, she’s going to bust her ass to make Ru laugh. And I’ll just admit that drag Andy Samberg is beginning to steal my heart.
So one team wins, and since a team wins, and everyone hates working on teams, they get to be team leaders and play schoolyard pick’em to remind Jade that while everyone hated Serena, no one’s really itching to be her BFF, either. Once in their teams they’re told they’re going to stage a “kidster” program a la “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” where all the little kids who loved it never got all the weird shit and double entendres that was the show’s stock in trade for its adult audience. No team seems to completely get it and it’s really more miss than hit but a few people shine but most don’t.
But the main focus of the episode was “the feud.” And I will never ever again complain ever that I’m not getting the full story behind any queen’s feud because even with Lee giving us the lowdown in the comments back in the premiere I still couldn’t figure out what they were talking about. Or crying about. And I’m going to need a ruling from JMo about whether or not the Miss Gay America pageant would really cause so much drama that it might ruin a marriage or was Coco just being a giant drama queen.
We have a very obvious winner and a fairly obvious loser but a totally surprising queen in the bottom two. By the time the queen had to sashay away even editing got bored with the episode and just smash cut into the opening of Untucked.
To paraphrase Paulina, they broke the first rule of entertainment. They bored me.
