    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?

    I knew that Rock M’s 3rd dress would do her in when lip synching. Should have had scissors. They are only allowed to change outfits for the lip synch during All stars

    Dusty changed. She was eliminated during the ball, and least 2 of those outfits were comfortable for lip synching. This is when she had the shorts and the hat everybody liked right? But instead she wore a fourth (basic) look for the performance.

    I think others have done it too.

    I need to look at the season 10 episode to see if Dusty changed because I do not remember anyone changing before a lip synch except for All Stars.

    They’ve been allowed to change into “performance” pieces before. Not just all-stars, but regular season too.

    Poor Rock M. She was a goner the moment Michelle Visage said that it looked like her chest had “sores” on it.

    dusty is the only one who’s changed for the lip sync on regular seasons and it was because the metal pieces in her outfit were cutting her

    Okay, because I really do not remember people changing before lip synchs outside of All Stars and now Dusty. Please let men know of others because I truly do not remember.

    can we all agree that heidi is this season’s shangela (circa season 3) but much less grating? so much energy so much fun so little polish, long as she keeps delivering those lip syncs she’s in it for the long run

    episode was fun, pretty decent script and the girls worked it out. at this point it’s not a question of whether [redacted] made it to the finale but how many more challenges she’s gonna win

    really good runway all around, favorites were jackie, nicky, jaida and gigi, finally someone made a troop beverly hills reference!

    sad to see nicky go, she’s been one of my favorites not just based on her looks but her sweet caring nature, but she had no chance against heidi in that lip sync

    next week is snatch game, it’s a matter of time before the mean girls guys show up on drag race, they’ve been coming to dragcon for years, I just hope there’s not some kind of twist to the format again

    Crazy episode! I’m fully #TeamAiden now, just to spite Brita’s useless, self-entitled ass for thinking that this crown automatically belongs to her. Compare her to someone like Bianca who had just as storied a career coming into her season as Brita claims she has now, but Bianca let the work slay for her outside of her reputation. I don’t see how Brita wins this race with the terrible edit she’s currently getting and the controversy surrounding her that hasn’t gone away either. It’s funny how cancel culture works except for when it doesn’t. So glad Leslie Jones called her out publicly for being a “mean girl,” b/c she’s exactly that and more! Full credit where credit is due with Sherry Pie for absolutely killing the acting challenge and clearly on another level from the other queens. It’s going to be funny when she wins the most challenges this season and will not be mentioned for a single second in the season finale like she was a ghost lol. That is, if we even get a season finale this year :-/. Sad for the gorgeous Nicky Doll, but the moment she said she would send herself home, that was that. No getting back from saying self-sabotage. Brita should have been in the bottom again, TBH. I liked Nicky’s baby character. This idea that she has to be “kooky” to stand out when let’s say, Crystal Methyd, isn’t given that same silly standard, is off to me. Ru is more enamored with his El Debarge haircut than anything else she’s done in DRAG. Jaida wasn’t all that great either in the acting challenge. I would have had her sweat it out a bit with Brita before being called safe. Heidi did that shit to a song I’d never heard in my life in the lip-sync, so good for her! Some copied Naomi moves and an unfortunate wig loss, but still a good job. Nicky couldn’t compete with the language barrier, which is a bigger deal than most people realize. “Untucked” was lit AF! So glad Aiden stood up against those girls and Heidi defended her. Next week is an early “Snatch Game,” and I can’t wait! I smell shenanigans afoot, bitches!

    Sherry totally deserved her win this episode, to me she should not have won the improv one, Jackie and Heidi were funnier and stood out the most, but in this one i agree with the win.

    I feel sad for many queens this season, Jackie is being Miz Cracker-ed, both very funny SMART queens with a very specific aesthetic that only reach High because the judges prefer someone else. Jan is being totally overshadowed by Sherry in every acting challenge, she’s really trying and doing her best yet the judges don’t seem to see that.

    The “crazy” queens like Rock and Crystal only receive comments about how they need to polish themselves and turn it down, yet Aiden gets all the praise for doing the minimum on the runway, and i like Aiden, but we ALL KNOW her ball look was the worse.

    And yes, Brita is simply a bragging bitch that relies on the supposed quality of her New York gigs, that apparently only herself knows about.

    Brita is very grating. It is one thing if Brita showcased the talent and runway, but she does not even do that. Brita needs to go in the next couple of episodes

    Maybe this is why Britta wasn’t canceled like Sherry was. Producers knew the editors took care of her cancelation for us. They’re really giving her a terrible edit. She cannot stand Aiden, it’s Thorgy vs Bob again. She needs to go next week. She’s the one person this season I don’t care about.

    If Britta leaves next week, then it’s gonna hurt from that point forward. Everybody besides her is great and fun to watch.

    I’ve taken a turn on Sherry’s situation. I have to forget about her shit for now and just enjoy her until the end when she’s out of the show because it’s just too much. She’s too good. And now I believe the show should’ve let the season go on as planned without editing Sherry out. This is because it’s fucking weird and confusing some times to see her win or be on top when you really haven’t seen or heard from her during the episode.

    You know when that contestant on Project Runway gets eliminated third or fourth and on that episode the editors have no choice but to finally feature the person a lot even though they’re nowhere to be found on the first 2 or 3 episodes? That’s how it feels with Sherry. Where the fuck did you come from? Where were you? It’s a mind fuck. And she’s SO GOOD!

    Just curious, but why is Widow so low? Widow has knocked it out of the park on two episodes. Widow would have been a deserving winner for this last challenge.
