At the end of episode 6 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 15 on February 3, Robin Fierce and Jax found themselves lip synching for their lives, both for the first time. Following their head-to-head to “In Your Room” by The Bangles, Robin was asked to “sashay away,” but both underwhelmed fans in the lip sync and the girl group challenge.
We asked in a recent poll if the judges made the right decision and voters are split, almost evenly over whether Robin or Jax should have been the one to go. At the time of this writing, Robin had 38.3% of the vote while Jax had 36.8%. There was also 11% of fans that thought a different queen should have been eliminated instead of either of them. Anetra was also in the bottom three, so voters could be thinking she deserved the “sashay.”
Here are the complete poll results for who fans think should have been eliminated this week:
38% Robin Fierce
9% No one
Both Robin and Jax were part of a confident group of vocalists and dancers on Team Hip Hop, but their performance as the Ol’ Dirty Bitches alongside Anetra and Loosey LaDuca fell far short of expectations. The blank expression on RuPaul Charles‘ face throughout their routine told the story that they were not hitting the mark compared to to the Teams Heavy Metal and Country that each had the judges laughing their granny panties off.
During critiques, Jax took heat from Michelle Visage for a “timing issue” that kept her out of pace with the rest of her group. Ross Mathews added that Jax is more than capable of performing well as an individual, but she struggles to blend in with the crowd which is part of the challenge as a girl group. The judges also took issue with a confusing runway look that had an orange jumpsuit under lime green tie-dye pieces.
Michelle told Robin that she plays it safe and that results in her being lost in the crowd of the other girls. Guest judge Megan Stalter and Ru added that it’s clear Robin is holding herself back and not pushing all the way. Robin explained that she’s “not a gambler,” because in her life she’s seen people fail when taking risks and so it’s created for her a sense of safety in doing what she knows. Ru pointed out that this show is the time where she should finally be letting loose.
