Hello again, Gasmii! And it’s the (second) week we’ve all be waiting for…the annual visit from Absolut brand ambassador, JEFFREY MORAN!
Psych. He’s still boring as all hell. No, it’s the annual READING OF THE QUEENS! Even though I do miss hearing all the reads from all of the queens, the editors have at least gotten better this year and actually highlight most of the queens best jokes. Doesn’t mean they were all good and sadly, yet not unsurprisingly, one of them gets left out entirely but overall everyone seemed to manage at least one good joke and one queen gets off a read of Detox that I’m still laughing at because:
Um, yeah. Anyway, a very clever queen wins and it’s time for the main challenge: A RuPaul Roast. Queens will have to write jokes roasting Ru as well as the other queens and judges. Other than the Alyssa and Coco ish, this is a relatively drama-free group of queens (What is wrong with THEM?) so they all kind of quietly sit around writing their jokes and being amused at how much Alyssa can just amuse herself and it’s all kind of a snore until runway day when a couple of backsliding queens let their much uglier side get the better of them.
So it’s a pretty quick jump to the runway which is also the roast. Guest judges Leslie Jordan and Absolut brand ambassador (What does that even mean?) JEFFREY MORAN are there and the girls pretty much perform as expected. Until an unexpected queen wins and two very unexpected queens are in the bottom two and forced to face the ignominy of being the doll who lost lip synching to Willow Smith.
And then, gurr, some really weird shit goes down on the runway that I figured had to be equal parts sincere and sincerely bullshit until I saw Untucked and felt a little bad for doubting the sincerity. But not really because I still think there was some bullshit involved.
Full recap in a few days. Until then, you can catch up on the last recap here.
