Welcome back to RuPaul’s Drag Race! It was an eventful week with our queens, little of which had to do with the challenges, but I think they hit the trifecta of three heavily promo’d clips.
But first up, the mini-challenge. The queens were paired off to paint each other while handcuffed together to take mug shots by “Polite in Public.” Most of the teams go for grotesque, which makes sense, one team thought to paint…pretty? And one team member had a genuinely brilliant idea that Jiggly (C’mon…we know she’s never going to come up with a brilliant idea.) thought was stupid, so of course it won.
Which then saw the queens break off into two teams to shoot a new “sitcom,” Hot in Tuckahoe, about four best squirrelfriends who just can’t stay out of prison. Double entendres ensue, with scripts that read like Three’s Company meets Jackie Mason meets The Lost Weekend. Ru finally realizes just how demoralizing pick’ems are, even when the people picking were all likely the last picked, and decides to let the team leaders pick names out of a hat. And it still produces one truly tragic team. How does that happen? The teams shake out thusly:
Chad, Jiggly, Latrice, Phi Phi, Willam
Dida, Kenya, Madame, Milan, Sharon
Can you guess which team flamed out royally? There was drama, there was yelling, there were references to Party City, there was a reasonably good lip synch, there were pithy comments from Willam, and in the end, all the right people won while the right person sashayed away…
Full recap in a few days. Until then, you can catch up on the last recap here.
