This week’s theme on RuPaul’s Drag Race is literacy…so Jiggly’s screwed. Not a spoiler, just a guess based on the first six weeks of competition.
But first, the queens have their annual reading mini-challenge, and I’m disappointed that they’ve stopped showing everyone getting read. Because my second favorite read of all time was Jujubee just spitting out Laotian at Jessica Wild and that would have been cut. (Favorite being, of course, “Was your barbecue cancelled? Because your grill is fucked.”) Anyway, the queens you think would do well do and Phi Phi sucked. Oops. Spoiler!
Main challenge is for each queen to create her own dragazine and the mini challenge winner assigns the titles. They shake out as follows: Eleganza (Chad), Tastes Like Chicken (Dida), Battle of the Bulge (Jiggly), What’s the T (Latrice), Sashay Away (Phi Phi), Kitty Cats (Sharon) and Sugar Walls (Willam). Queens will have to create a concept, write the headlines, layout the cover and do a photo shoot. Most queens struggle, some are overconfident, some are clueless and someone intentionally gives another queen really shitty advice specifically to sabotage her. And Sharon dresses like Little Edie but editing suggests that only JIGGLY CALIENTE appears to get the reference. (I will assume that at least one other queen got it. Willam, please tell me at least one other queen got it.)
Special guest judges are Pam Tillis who is surprisingly astute and Regina King who is just aces and one of the funniest guest judges they’ve had…especially when she laughs at another judge. I love Regina King. No lie, no sarcasm. She’s just so awesome and I’ve been a fan since 227, too. Oh, and we finally find out who the balding bitch that pisses off Latrice is! And it’s both unexpected and completely satisfying.
Challenge winner is a bit of a surprise as is one of the bottom two. So who wins and who sashays away?
