    WOW episode two was fun , Sad to see Jaymes go home over Kimora 

    Starting at the beginning, nice to Lisa Kudrow but why was she only there for five minutes, couldn’t they do a mini challenge at least with her? Seemed like a waste of an opportunity to me. Also nice to see Cynthia lee Fontaine come back , while she was not my favorite of all time I do think she is silly and I enjoy her attitude in the work room, she seems more cooperative and caring and I enjoy that . I think Ru brought her back because she just didn’t really resonate in her season and Ru sensed she had more to give. I think Rupaul is a fabulous judge of character and when she decides to bring someone back it’s for a legitimate reason. I think about Shangela, Trixie and they both had more to show and ultimately were able to do that because ru brought them back. I hope Cynthia does well all though I don’t predict her winning.

    Now on to the swamp heap that is Kimora Blac … WTF … how can you be so negative and rude in just the first episode… very bad first impression and she will definitely have to work on her social game if she is oing to make it far. Someone mentioned Violet and its true violet was a bitch in the beginning, but she had the goods to back that attitude up and she slayed the challenges and is one of only two winners to never end up in the bottom and she was able to show growth and change into a nicer and better person by the end. So I think Kimora will have an uphill battle.
    I do think Kimora did a worse lip Sync that Jaymes , but Jaymes was not into it she seemed very sad and I hope she was able to get some confidence out of the show because I think she has the propensity to be great she just has to believe it.
    Loved Valentina and she KILLED it this week, she deserved her win hands down … I mean that runway (short of the shoe, which I didn’t see on tv until they showed it) was one of the best runway looks ever. I think Shea did a good job and I liked her look a lot. Didn’t agree with Charlie being in the bottom because I liked her look more than peppermint and Farrah and even Sasha but I’m glad she was safe.
    My ranking
    Top girls – feel like they have the best odds to make it to the end
    Valentina
    Sasha
    Eureka
    Nina
    Shea

    Middle – could go either way
    Cynthia
    Alexis
    Trinity
    Aja
    Peppermint

    Bottom – feel like they will head home soonish
    Kimora
    Farrah
    Charlie

    Cant wait for next week.

    I really wish that we had 90 minute episodes.

    Kimora is annoying and I wish that Kimora was sent home.

    Violet’s one of the worst winners the show’s produced yet, as well as the most controversial. I don’t think she has anything to “back up,” and she brings nothing to the table as a performer expect for strip-teasing and cabaret antics.

    I think that Violet is a good winner , She is not my favorite but i think she is a good representation of something new in drag . she pushing the boundaries of drag and gender. I think in her season she was flawless and she deserved her win. What she does from now on who knows, she has done more that Bebe and Tyra at this point.

    NOW that being said Violet is in no way my favorite and I personally wanted Trixie, Ginger , Pearl or Katya to win. But upon re watching i do think she did the best withing the framework of the show and deserves her win.

    Back when it aired, I wanted Ginger Minj to win. Of course watching All Stars, I wanted Katya to win that season.

    But I recently watched Season 7 again on Netflix, and Katya wasn’t as good as she was on All Stars (although she didn’t deserve to go home when she did, neither did Max). Ginger Minj didn’t impress me as much the second time around, Pearl was always a weird finalist in the sense that I wanted her there, but I wasn’t sure why, because she wasn’t THAT good either, she just got much better near the end. So even if I prefer all three ladies to Violet Chachki, it kind of makes sense that she won.

    Jaymes needed to go home. She was over her head. Yes, Kimora was a bit of a hot mess but at least that can be fixed. She does need to shape up or she will be shipped out. Valentina did deserve the win though. I don’t mind Cynthia being back. She wasn’t my favorite and seems the type that in person would be way too happy for me to deal with at times, but she does seem nice.

    Going back to season 7, I loved Violet and was glad she won. I liked that she was a bit different. Ginger annoyed me to no end and just seemed a bit too cliche for me (comedy/pageant/southern/big girl).

    Ginger Minj should have won her season outright. She was better there than on “All Stars 2.”

    Violet was a problem for me because outside of the sewing challenges – Violet was just blah and does not possess the C in Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent.

    I preferred Ginger over Violet

    I prefer her to Violet also but i think Violet did a much better job within the show and deserved to win.

    Kimora Blacc was one of that frontrunners to win this season outright, as well as being the first Asian winner, so her exit is interesting. I can’t stand lazy ass queens though, and her villain edit so early on didn’t bode well long term, so good riddance! Hard to believe that queens in season NINE don’t know how to sew at this point. Farrah Moan can’t coast on her fishy looks forever. See Courtney Act and Derrick Berry for those receipts. Anywho, condragulations to thirsty Trinity Taylor for her first win. I think Valentina deserved the win this week, more than last week at least versus Shea Coulee. Strong maxi challenge with the “Beauty & the Beast” craze at the moment. Judges were spot-on with their critiques, and Mama Ru just killing it left and right as host (possible tape submission as well). All the talk about Pulse was so sad to watch and made me tear up. It’s episodes like this that should propel “RuPaul’s Drag Race” to win the Reality/Competition Program Emmy in an ideal world.

    This week’s episode was ok, I was let down by the level of whining and just really lackluster talent coming from Kimora Blac and Farah moan. They should be better and its frankly off putting that their not. Aja was creative and has enough skills to make a look, even if it was horrible (wtf was with that hair ) and if she is unwilling to listen to feedback about her look then she will go home shortly . She is a gorgeous, Feisty and interesting queen but if she can’t hear the feedback #gurlbye.

    Top Three
    Valentina – she was cute but I don’t think she should have been top three
    Trinity – Great job , I don’t really like her yet but she turned it out and earned the win
    Peppermint –she was in the top of the whole pack but I wouldn’t have put her in top three.

    Charlie Hides and Shea Coulee should have been in the top imo they both looked stunning.
    Middle girls for me this week were Alexis (there is something so boring about her) Sasha, Nina, and Eureka.
    I thought Cynthia’s look was a mess even though she made me laugh; Farrah, Kimora and Aja all looked a mess. I would have thrown Farrah in the bottom with Kimora and done a double elimination abahah

    I do think it would have been more fun to see Jaymes this week instead of Kimora but Ru knows best.

    The show’s ratings have doubled or tripled since moving to VH1. Poor LOGO. That’s the end of that, isn’t it?

    The “Untucked” episode with Lady Gaga offering thoughtful critique was surprisingly moving.
