after casting the most exciting batch of new girls in years and giving them two premiere challenges worthy of a final 4 episode, as all things recent drag race goes, the first episode where they come together is a complete shitstorm, the challenge was shit the runway theme was shit (a few girls brought it anyway) the judging was shit and giving the win to [redacted] was the shit to end all shit
next week’s the ball which has been questionable judging central lately, excited to see what gigi, jaida and nicky can bring.March 14, 2020 at 12:09 am #1203380824
Annnnd Sherry Pie wins it! The gaggery of it all. Reduce her screen time all you want to, editors (a complete skip in Ru’s walk-through, which is sad since I wanted to hear more from Aiden), but she’s gonna end up top four at this rate. Her early level of polish rivals Bianca’s, TBH. “Lucky” break for the number 5 queen, but it makes these episodes feel dirty to watch. That really upsets me. I thought this would have been an easy win for Heidi. Clear improv standout in the group challenge, touching backstory in judging, inventive runway look, and possible name change. That should have been a perfect storm for a win. Ross loved her this week! Sherry and Nicky should have been safe. Bottom two of Dahlia Sin and Crystal Methyd with the latter being the easy elimination. But Miss Dahlia, hmmmm. Never a good look to storm off an elimination as a bad sport, but I can see her position in that moment. Stunning queen with a beautiful runway look, which can be enough sometimes. But she didn’t know all the words to “Problem,” unfortunately, on top of falling flat with the acting. Iggy’s verse buzzes by so fast too. The camera coverage was really poor there, so I couldn’t tell how Nicky was doing with the rapping. Bad song choice! One classy move, VH-1/WOW: donating the equivalent of Sherry’s winnings to the Trevor Project.March 14, 2020 at 1:52 am #1203380877
dahlia’s behavior after the critiques is just the epitome of entitled social media gays, glad she’s goneMarch 14, 2020 at 1:12 pm #1203381270
This was a nice and funny episode. Really loving the season so far. The return of Ornacia was amazing.
Heidi N Closet is the Tituss Andromedon we didn’t know we needed on Drag Race. She is SO good and SO funny. I agree the win should’ve been hers. The acting during the challenge was great, the voice was funny and the Pinochi-ho look was great too.
But Sherry Pie, man. She’s a winner. Too bad this whole thing happened. She’s such a clear winner from day one and I don’t see her being eliminated or even lip synching during a bad week. There’s still a lot of queens to get rid of before they even think of getting to Sherry. It’s not gonna be pretty, she’s gonna keep winning challenges and being on top and delivering great performances and looks. She might have an off week, but it seems like she’s very much in the Top 4.
Dahlia should’ve known she was easily going home. There was no doubt about this unless Crystal or Nicky screwed up their lip syncs. Dahlia looked very much like a first elimination last week too. And her lip sync was terrible (as was Nicky’s). So I don’t understand the shock of the elimination which most likely led to her just walking off. She should’ve known better.
Other favorites included Gigi’s perfect dead man performance, Jackie and Jan who are excellent, Britta who did a nice job with Sherry and come on…Aiden is amazing. I couldn’t keep my eyes of her weird Jennifer Tilly or Helena Bonham Carter performance. I don’t understand why she keeps wearing the same wig though. And she better start speaking up and work on her personality. Her attitude is leading people to believe she’s bad and she’s not.
The other 2 groups were tough to watch. Anyway, great episode and Olivia Munn is gorgeous.March 14, 2020 at 1:23 pm #1203381280
In the Pit Stop, Bob and Thorgie were this week’s lineup. Bob suggested that “Buttons” be the lip-sync song. THANK YOU!!! So much better than that awful “Problem.” They skipped over Sherry Pie’s win like it barely happened lmao.March 19, 2020 at 12:04 pm #1203387199

Episode Title: “The Ball Ball”
Synopsis: The remaining queens’ creativity comes to life when they compete in a pageant of sports-inspired couture, and later strutting the runway in three “ball-themed” looks; Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live”) serves as the guest judge; another contestant is eliminated from the competition.
Discuss.March 20, 2020 at 7:11 pm #1203388767
Well that just happened! Genuinely shocked by tonight’s results. I expected this queen to at least break into the top ten.
Also, Leslie Jones might be in the running for GOAT guest judge. WHEN WILL UR FAVSMarch 20, 2020 at 7:54 pm #1203388801
the bottom 3 was clearly set up in the editing and deservedly so, but am a little shocked at the elimination because of all the effort that went into setting up narratives for her
dare I say leslie jones is the best guest judge this show’s ever had? with her laugh I’m almost convinced that all of ross’s jokes were actually funny, and her untucked visit was just everything
not the most exciting top 3 we’ve had for one of these challenges, but they were clearly the top 3, can’t think of anyone else up there. nicky looked better overall but her taste level isn’t on the same level as her execution and polish, so I can’t complain about gigi’s win
both rock and brita were set up to be huge characters this season seeing as they both entered the werkroom first, so it’s a little hard to understand how they were put together for only the second lip sync when aiden is just sleepwalking by. neither of them killed the lip sync but rock’s garment doomed her from the start. she’s great fun to watch and will certainly be missed
next week’s challenge has been rumored since all stars 4, please don’t let it be another you-know-who winMarch 20, 2020 at 8:22 pm #1203388831
Shania Twain – look at Leslie Jones and that is how you bring it as a guest judgeMarch 21, 2020 at 4:10 am #1203388991
Rock M. leaving this soon really surprised me. I thought she could at least make top ten, or get to around the 7/8 slot like Trixie did (first time). As much as I love seeing Aiden Zhane keeping all of these gurls panini pressed, I’d agree that her eleganza look wasn’t really up to par. But neither was the famed Brita’s “pineapple” dress, if I’m being honest, or Rock M.’s everything but the kitchen sink ball dress. It’s sad to see the queens who really want to stay around lose out like this. The lip sync was a hot ass mess. I wish Rock M. could have changed into a less cumbersome outfit to perform in, which they’ve done before. The sports “Ball” theme was great. That’s a lot of output so early in the competition. Gigi’s three looks were fantastic! Highly deserved win there. Nicky’s looks were just as conceptual and high fashion, but yeah, her personality has to amp up on the runway. They could easily make it all the way, I think, unless either truly stumbles somewhere. Also really liked the looks from Jan, Widow, Jaida (trying her best to be the shit-stirring A’Keria of this season … gurl, bye), and Sherry Pie. I won’t throw the latter’s insanely creative and talented designer under the bus just b/c the queen wearing them turned out to be a POS. I didn’t fully realize what editing can do to mold perception and narrative with this show. It was like SP wasn’t even competing tonight lol. Great judging panel! Ru looked sensational. And Miss LESLIE JONES! Truly one of the greatest guest judges this show has ever had. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone so excited to judge “RPDR” than Jones was lmao. Wish there was some kind of way to nominate her for this. All I can think of is that “Untucked” should submit this episode to finally be competitive to win the Emmy for Unstructured Reality Program. I’d also submit the main episode for Reality/Competition Program before either of the season premieres. Maybe this will also be the jolt that gives Aiden Zhane the push needed to soar in this completion, who knows?March 21, 2020 at 6:14 am #1203389021
1. Gigi (great looks)
2. Jaida (great looks)
3. Nicki (good looks)
4. Jan (good looks)
5. Widow (good looks)
6. Heidi (good looks)
7. Crystal (not bad)
8. Jackie (not bad)
9. Rock M. (not as bad as judges thought)
10. Aiden (basic as fuck)
11. Brita (shitty looks)
* Sherry (blah)
Horrible lip-sync for your life.
Leslie Jones is the best guest judge ever!March 21, 2020 at 7:01 am #1203389099
The next big question is how will a finale take place in May now. Either film with no audience or postpone it indefinitely until the crisis is over. What a cursed season this is turning out to be!March 21, 2020 at 7:36 am #1203389119
they should’ve gone ahead with an in-studio finale before everything went completely cuckoo bananas
another item of concern is the all stars 5 promo which according to my knowledge has yet to be filmed
