    One of the best lip-syncs for your life that I’ve ever seen, coupled with one of the worst “Snatch Game” installments. Didn’t know half of these “characters,” and most felt like missed opportunities. Plastique, Vanjie, yeah no. Yay for Silky and all, but it was almost a default choice for the win. Really liked Shuga Cain’s Charo and Nina’s Harvey Fierstein. Besides that, nope. Brooke’s Celine was ridiculously unfunny. I can’t believe how bad this unassailable frontrunner did for a Canadian legend. Yvie just wasn’t a funny Whoopi. A’Keria was a fun Tiffany Haddish. I needed that knock-off Alexander McQueen white dress and a bit more from her impression. Jinkx was a stellar mentor. I was perfectly geared for Brooke and Vanjie in the bottom due to their “relationship” and obviously shady-ass editors. Vanjie would have been a goner, and the show still needs her celebrity and spark here. Brooke’s runway was completely gaggg-inducing, but a tad desperate? Regardless, that lip-sync was the right song, the right adversaries, the right energy, and the right decisions. Ru’s runway look had my jaw dropped. I’m glad Yvie at least tried to apologize to Silky and Vanjie, even if only one was gracious enough to accepting her apology. Tony Hale and Clea DuVall were both fun judges and just okay contestants. Now I’m ready for a double elimination!

    rupaul hinted at attending the met gala this year, and allegedly manila hasn’t posted her as4 finale dress because she’s saving it “for a big event”

    This is really the lipsync and runway we all deserve from two of the worst Snatch Game performances ever. So good for them for rewarding us after failing so miserably.

    Yvie in particular was terrible. Truly one of the worst ever. It’s as if she never cared, never researched (why would anybody need to research Whoopi?), never went with many of the easiest Whoopisms, never cared for the costume, the wig, and never tried to hide the fact that he’s a very skinny boy and Whoopi is…umm…not.

    Brooklyn at least got the white suit and some mannerisms, but then chose to ignore absolutely everything else, including many of the crazy things Celine has done recently. It was extremely easy and could’ve worked nicely.

    Silky earned her win. Even if you didn’t know who she was. It’s a default win that they handed over to her. She basically played herself, she has done this exact character 15 minutes before in the mini challenge, so…

    Vanjie was safe. I think that she should’ve gone home in the end, but the other two were so awful that no amount of excellence on the runway would make me forget about that performance in the Snatch Game. So Vanjie, who at least was funny (and she keeps on relying on that) was deservingly safe. Despite wearing the same dress again.

    Suga should’ve gone further with Charo and I’m over Nina West, who at this point still is coasting, doing nothing really relevant and looking like somebody who just studied every quirky, weird, funny queen before her and is just imitating that particular type of Drag Race contestant. Which is something a lot of them have done this season with the possible exception of Vanjie.

    A bit late to the party but urgh this Snatch Game was so weak. Like think back to least stain – Eureka, Aquaria and Monet were miles stronger than any of them this episode. Silky was at least funny but it was herself and a character she does constantly, Nina at least had some intelligent references and was funny but most seasons sure would be safe (I would’ve given her the win though), Shuga was a classic safe performance that was funny and easy to do and didn’t go far. Same with A’keria and Plastique.

    Vanjie, Yvie and Brooke are probably my favourites in the competition (alongside Plastique) so this was a really sad bottom 3 for me but they all deserved to be there. I would’ve put Vanjie in the bottom for Brooke – I know Brooke’s snatch game was worse but at least she had a great runway to make up for it instead of doing the same thing she’s been doing recently again. Also I should note, Silky’s mouthing off the whole time in confessionals was super annoying.

    That lip sync though 😍😍 exactly what we needed to save this otherwise kinda terrible episode!

    didn’t catch the first half an hour of the show, although minus the sneak peak I probably didn’t miss much

    miss akeria has finally emerged as a viable frontrunner, good for her. her performance in the challenge was definitely fun although we’ve seen her do similar characters before. nina and brooke were the best pair for sure, nina should’ve been on top and I would’ve gladly accepted a brooke win especially coupled with that fucking runway

    silky was… silky, funny how the judges read shuga for being herself instead, the only thing I remember about vanjie and plastique was that they were hard to watch.

    the runway was quite fabulous, maybe the best this season? silky’s lack of makeup is bizarre, once again confirming that there is not a single bone of humbleness in her, only other bad look was vanjie, fun concept but the fit was bad. shuga’s facekini + victorian fashion combo was beyond fabulous, brooke and nina also had incredible out-of-the-box looks, yvie and akeria’s had great concepts and ok execution, and then there’s miss plastique with her corset and face thong, but she still looked great regardless

    the lip sync was quite obviously rigged for vanjie, not that plastique would’ve beaten her had the song been different, neither one of them are particularly good at emoting anyway, while plastique is a much more viable contestant I simply cannot imagine the rest of the season without vanjie’s confessionals so I’m at peace with the result

    next week looks like some nonsense, I hope they’re not actually expecting the girls to perform magic tricks, some interesting and highly varied runway looks shown, wonder what the theme is

    Silky frustrates me more and more every episode! She has the making of such a good drag queen but that attitude needs to be taken down about 10 notches and the energy about 3. If she were to give herself a very healthy dose of humbling and just to restrain her performances a notch and give them just a hint of nuance she would be unstoppable. I just don’t think she’s capable of that. Ru seems to love her though so she might be headed for the finale.

    Honestly, I don’t think she should’ve lip synced but she should’ve been bottom or safe this week because she just threw everything at the screen and didn’t work with her partner at all. Plus her runways are often just not thought out at all. This week that is particularly obvious. Just tighten everything up please because you have so much potential but right now I just want you to go home!

    I’m still team Yvie, her runway was amazing this week but she deserved the safe spot this week. I also love Brooke and am so happy for her this week, she was spot on amazing with both the runway and performance.

    I didn’t love A’keria’s look I must say but that performance was great. I understand all the praise for that performance… Seriously though they came for Vanjie for the way her suit was fitted and said nothing about this? I would’ve given the win to Brooke!

    Nina I would’ve had replace Silky in the top just because she was what got that performance out of Brooke and that shouldn’t go unnoticed. Also I liked that runway look – it was suitably Nina! But there were honestly only 2 tops this week though (A’keria and Brooke).

    Vanjie and Plastique yeah basically I agree with the judges. I love Vanjie though – the way she came out with Silky’s head on in untucked I want to see that Vanjie come out in challenges more!

    Shuga’s look was great but I’m sorry she still feels like filler and will go soon I’m sure.

    I’d rank the looks this week Brooke, Yvie, Shuga, Nina, Vanjie, A’keria, Silky, Plastique

    Overall Brooke, A’keria, Nina, Yvie, Silky, Shuga, Vanjie, Plastique.

    I think we are def going to see a final four of Skily , Evie, Brooke and Akeria ….

    This week Nina should have been top instead of Silky , but the producers are shoving her down our throats so i am guessing she is making top four and will be lip syncing for the crown against Evie.

    I could not get over Plastiques lip makeup this week … its looked smeared and horrible …

    Overall they did good on the runway , i personally would have Silky and Plastique in the bottom based off runway and then Vanjie and Platiique based off preformance …

    Really thought this was Shuga’s time to go. Overshadowed by Silky in the improv acting challenge, decent but not thrilling runway look, and coasting through the competition so far isn’t exactly a winner’s narrative. I had Plastique easily in my final four, and after Ru’s significant heart-to-heart with her in the sew room a while ago, that sort of feels like a waste now. Good for Vanjie fighting in the lip-sync and all though. They easily had the weakest of the four skits. Vanjie has to calibrate being Vanjie or she’s a goner. A’Keria stepped things up, so good for her winning this week. Brooke proved there is some sort of comedy queen hiding in her ballet dancer’s physique. Some decent redemption for her hideous Celine Dion. I liked Nina West this week for a change. Improv is where she truly excels, but she needs to get out of her head. Silky’s born for this type of ghetto nonsense lol. Shuga bored me. Yvie was kinda overshadowed by A’Keria. Nice runway challenge with the facekinis, but Silky was lazy as fuck for not painting, and Plastique didn’t fulfill the requirements. Loved the judging panel! Natasha, Cheyenne, and the other one were all great! Final seven, bitches! New final four of Brooke, Yvie, Silky, and … A’Keria? Vanjie’s gonna either flame out sooner or later, or TPTB keep her around until the finale. Shuga could easily go home next week. Nina feels top five to me, but I said that she will be the shock elimination of the season (but not all that “shocking” in hindsight), so I’ll stick with that and assume it could happen at any time.

    You had Plastique in the top four and she gives the same corset look week after week? Sorry, but I figured that Shuga or Plastique would be the next to go.

    Yes, that’s what it says. Plastique has a huge Instagram following, so she’ll be fine regardless.
