Hello, Hello, Hello! This week theme on RuPaul’s Drag Race is frenemies and the queens are forced to work, as a team, with the person they’re least compatible with, or as I like to call the challenge, let’s fuck with Sharon.
But first, though, the queens have to drop a bunch of anvils to confuse everyone about what’s going to happen. Not the least of which is Phi Phi’s grand delusions, burning, seething, all-consuming rage and inability to ever accept any responsibilities for her own flaws and weaknesses. But also Sharon’s insecurities and Willam’s unwillingness to play the game the way others want him to.
After a surprisingly straightforward SheMail Ru decides to can the mini challenge and give all the queens polygraphs, ostensibly to determine who will be working with whom, but again, the challenge started with let’s put Sharon and Phi Phi together, add Mentos and soda and see what happens so it was really just a way to test market the viability of RuPaul’s line of Iron Fist shoes. And to see which queen would bang who if they were the last two ladyboys on the planet. Phi Phi probably said no to everyone because she just bitterly masturbates while wondering why the rest of the world doesn’t appreciate what a precious snowflake she is.
Then on to the main challenge. The teams will perform a nightclub act including costuming and performing live, one team will win as a team and one team will lip synch for their lives. Because, again, can’t fuck with Sharon unless the stakes are really high. Everyone, except Willam, doubts Willam’s ability to do anything and Phi Phi is a marginally talented hack whose greatest skill is deflecting any and all responsibility for being only a marginally talented hack. Chad and Dida are just kind of…there. On the plus side, Lucian Piane is back to be adorably incredulous over the queens.
Performances are pretty clear cut. The winning and losing teams are quite obvious and also beside the point, because a queen allegedly does something so unspeakable that she gets the boot even though her team won, but we never learn what this unspeakable act was. My guess? Left the hotel when they were on lock down. Or sneaked in a cell phone.
Meanwhile, on Untucked, Phi Phi continues down her path of becoming the least likable human ever to be on a reality show, ever, and I am counting that Abby woman from Dance Moms in this group. Of course, Phi Phi’s so mediocre at everything she does, she only gets halfway to Abby’s awfulness, but she’s young. She has something to aspire to.
