Yes, Symone really flops when she wants to flop. Seeing her run on the show, I’m still surprised she bombed these two challenges. Both seemed somewhat easy for her, or at least safe.
What happens now? Will Symone break any records? Will she get the first 5th challenge win? Will she still win the season now with two lipsyncs? Will Kandi make Top 4?
Rose and Mik are heading for some great track records.
Kandi did a nice job and I’m glad to see her win. First win for the previous House of Aja, haha.
By the way, just noticed Rose won the rusical AND Jan’s elimination episode.March 27, 2021 at 7:29 pm #1204161895
Honey, this episode was the Kandy show.
Rankings – Episode 12:
1. Kandy – very funny; slayed everyone!
2. Gottmik – cute!
3. Rosé – cute!
4. Symone – not as bad as they said; looked fucking gorgeous!
5. Olivia – not as bad as they said!
6. Utica – BARF!April 2, 2021 at 6:19 am #1204170516

Expected final four, though I really want to know details about the finale. Top three or top four, virtual or live, lip-sync wheel o’death or not, etc. It was Olivia’s time to go, mostly with her refusal to drop the nice girl act in the perfect challenge to stretch herself. The reality is that she can’t do anything else and needs a couple more years to bake and find herself as a drag queen. Not really looking forward to a future “All-Stars” run for her. I’d rather see Tamisha Iman, Denali, or maybe Utica Queen get the slots instead. I knew that Kandy Muse was safe until the end, even with that hideous runway look she had the nerve to show tonight. That plus the largest role in the acting challenge that she was mediocre in. Symone would have killed that part, but she would have played it as that sassy character she always does. Why not Olivia try playing the villain? Maybe Kandy as the smart one lol? Then Symone might have shined in the dumb gurl role. Necessary win for Rosé, since Symone winning five times would negate the need for a finale altogether. I think I would have been okay with any of the top three winning. Deserved bottom two and elimination. I was drawn to Olivia more in the lip-sync, but Kandy did her stunts and gave defiant personality throughout. If another elimination is happening, then buh-bye, Kandy.April 3, 2021 at 8:12 am #1204173384
Good episode and very happy to see Kandy make it.
Don’t know how Gottmik lost this challenge though. I think it was the excitement of finally seeing Rose in a 100% perfect garment for the first time ever (well, the devil costume too) plus a really good performance. But that role Rose got was not that great and at least Mik got the sneezing moment and the insane watch/coat outfit. She should’ve won. Still happy for Rose though.
Symone barely made it and I think she actually got the right role, this way the Symone-ness of it all wasn’t that obvious and she managed to sail through.
Gotta love the editors trying to ruin Olivia, just like Utica last week. Love how they save all the complaints the girls must be making since day one and then edit them all together to make it seem it’s just about this episode and now she must go home.April 4, 2021 at 2:48 pm #1204175704
Honey, mediocre episode.

2. Gottmik – good; nice runway!
3. Rosé – just ok; blah runway!
4. Olivia Lux – not as bad as they said; cute runway!
5. Kandy Muse – did not shine; atrocious runway!April 9, 2021 at 10:07 am #1204188263

Final four time! Totally expected that no one was sent home tonight, and I said weeks ago that Kandy Muse was never leaving after that ridiculous double shantay. I would have been fine with this being left to three, but it looks like they’re going through with some type of “live” finale where four queens are required. I wish they revealed more details about the finale, but next week is a Zoom reunion episode. All four of them did well enough in Ru’s new awful song of the season, “Lucky.” I could make a case for Rosé, Gottmik, or Symone winning the crown, but so much of it will depend on how the final lip-syncs are done. If any of them pulls some type of Sasha Velour-level shenanigans, then all bets are off. Gottmik was given an incredible edit here, and the positive press of the first trans queen winning will be too strong to pass up. Ru rarely gets that emotional over anyone. That might all be performative, but facts are facts, America! Gottmik was never in the bottom to lip-sync, which can’t be said for Symone. Rosé didn’t either, but I think she’s being set up as a clear third place finisher and easy future “All-Stars” contestant. Kandy is lucky to be there honestly, and this shows how far having a big personality and being good television can get you. Symone can still win, of course, and her childhood photo bit was the most emotional of the group. I’m having a difficult time seeing this show reward five black queens in a row. Certainly possible in the current sociopolitical climate, but Gottmik’s win is diversity in a new light. It would be sorta foolish for the show not to capitalize on it, especially with Ru’s past transphobic history that this win will help erase. The plot thickens! Looking forward to the reunion. Tamisha Iman’s gonna bring it like I knew she would lmao.April 10, 2021 at 12:56 am #1204189322
Honey, RuPaul’s new song is garbage (BARF!). No way is Gottmik NOT winning. That “first transman winner” narrative is too strong to ignore.
Rankings – Episode 14:
1. Symone – that bitch slayed!
2. Gottmik – ate it!
3. Rosé – I’m bored with her!
4. Kandy Muse – enjoy her; weakest of the top 4!April 16, 2021 at 9:33 am #1204203823
