    The producers are really doing Kandy a disservice with this double shantay. First, they heightened the Tamisha drama, and even fixed the next episode (hula hoops for sex, what kind of s**t), and then had Kandy eliminate Tamisha in a lip sync she barely won.

    Then, she has continued to coast on her “personality” that keeps being ripped apart by fans, and has positioned her runways to be graded on a curve. While I think she actually demolished Symone in this past lip sync, they should have eliminated her and let her develop her drag similar to Aja and Shangela. Being eliminated is the best thing that could have happened to her.

    I have a feeling she will be sticking around for a while now, and she is going to continue being ripped apart each week. Plus she is horrible at PR, so her career will really struggle and even tank similar to the former Phi Phi O’Hara.

    Also, I  still think Symone is ahead but with her dancing and singing being pretty horrible as we saw a glimpse in the disco challenge, this past challenge, her limits in the lip sync… I  think she is now in a place where she could lose her top spot to Rose, Gotmiik, and Olivia.

    Contemplating ditching S13, there was no ****ing need a double shantay this week, the best personality got eliminated (Tamisha), TPTB insist on making the unlikeable & averagely talented Mean Girls the centre of attention and just it’s dragging on (especially with only 4 eliminations in 8 weeks).

    Next week we’re gonna have a 11 person snatch game, for best and most iconic challenge, that’s just plain overkill and will dilute any enjoyment / humour out of it.

    After how UK2 is shaping be to be an all time season, US13 just seems more redundant.

    Tamisha had to go. Her dead eyes/stare while on stage weren’t gonna let her go far. Same problem as Vanjie, but you can’t compare personalities or the obvious need to keep Vanjie around since S11 was so bad. (She did get eliminated because of it in the end though).

    In your comment you seem to have a need for the season to be over quickly, for some reason. Why? Yes, they did the first three episodes without eliminations, I think we should get over that already, I was very much upset about it as you can see on this thread, but you know, it’s done. Move on. And there are 9 people left for SG, not 11.

    And UK is not better than US this season.

    Episode Title: “Snatch Game”

    Synopsis: The remaining queens impersonate celebrities in the legendary Snatch Game; LGBT activist TS Madison serves as guest judge; another contestant is eliminated from the competition.

    Snatch Game was a serve (with a lowercased “s”)! There was a clear top tier, middle tier, and lower tier, and the judges mostly got those correct. Symone would have edged out Denali for me, with her risky Harriet Tubman accomplishing more than Denali’s just-okay Jonathan Van Ness. But maybe TPTB don’t want Symone to completely run with this season like everyone expects, and I wouldn’t have picked her to win SG either. Her runway look though, wow. I wasn’t expecting something that topical and inspired from a season of “Drag Race.” Big win for Gottmik, so congrats to them! It was between Gottmik and Rosé FTW, I think. Tina, Kandy Muse, and Denali for safety, and then a clear bottom three of Olivia Lux, Elliott with 2Ts, and Utica Queen. There may have been too many queens to focus on for some of them to really stand out in SG. I had no idea who the celebrity chef Olivia was referencing, and she wasn’t funny doing it. Elliott should have known that any Golden Girl would be scrutinized more heavily than practically any other character outside of Beyoncé or Gaga, so stay away from her! Utica’s Bob Ross was so misjudged that it’s barely worth talking about. A decent runway and nailing the lip-sync did the trick in saving Utica this week. It was Elliott’s time, and few will question his leaving with being in this position multiple times. He’s been saying some problematic shit in real-life that’s causing controversy, so I guess better to go home now rather than later. Solid runway theme, though I waver if Gottmik was the best of the lineup. Punk rock/goth mode doesn’t seem like a huge stretch for Gottmik at all. TS is growing on me as a guest judge, since we’re repeating the judges this season. Nicole Byer > TS Madison > Loni Love > Jamal Sims.

    Harriet Tubman, Paris Hilton, and Mary Queen of Scots walk into a bar, the joke doesn’t even need to write itself.

    A great Snatch Game is what this season needed to pick up momentum, and a sign that this cast still has enough interesting personalities to make a great second half.

    It was a great Snatch Game. Finally. UK’s was so terrible, I needed this one to be good.

    Don’t really get how Symone missed the top here. It was an inspired choice with funny moments. I can understsnd it’s Symone as Symone’s Harriet Tubman with your favorite Symone moments, but the runway helped her get to the top for me. While I do believe Denali’s JVN got better as it went along, the waitress look was sadly done and done by Sherry Pie in a much MUCH better way just last year. And there were 2 people with that superior look on that stage in S12.

    I’m glad to see Denali in the top again, but….I don’t know. She was even one of my wildcard picks for the bottom. So good for her.

    Gottmik killed the SG and the runway. I knew she had one or more wins left, didn’t think it would be SG. My predictions for the win were Rose or Tina (should’ve done Jennifer Coolidge).

    Utica looked amazing on the runway.

    Also, I’d never heard “Fascinated” before until this lip-sync. It’s a legitimate bop, bitches! I stan.

    Finally a lip synch song that has a connection with the runway theme and I love this song!

    Long time member of Gold Derby here… just wanted to ask something I’ve always wondered.

    How is there a fair prediction game for RPDR given how spoiled the show is? When I’ve seen spoilers, they basically tell you every challenge winner/lip syncer/bootee for the entire season.

    There are spoilers for other shows in the prediction whatever thing here on GoldDerby. Just like the rest of us, the prediction game has to keep going as if spoilers don’t exist.
