    the challenge sounds very exciting, even if it’s just one big advertisement for a show that’s being postponed till god knows when

    Just realised that the majority of the celebrity cast are from shows on networks owned by Viacom. Nothing quite like corporate vertical integration.

    Jordan, Riverdale — The CW
    Nico, Younger & a tattoo repair show on MTV — TV Land & MTV
    Loni, The Real — BET
    Tami, Basketball Wives — VH1
    Dustin, Schitt’s Creek — POP TV

    great performance but pretty predictable episode overall, how are they gonna make the finale work with a top 3 is the question, three individual performances?

    crystal is leading the fan support on both instagram and twitter, jaida is firmly second on twitter and neck and neck with gigi on instagram, the fan vote winners have always won since the show’s move to vh1 so this ought to be interesting

    Jackie’s lip syncs have that frantic facial expression – she needs to to see if it works with the song

    Soooo Sherry ended up third after all lol. This is the one lip sync where I actually thought Jackie deserved to win, so that would be the time she was eliminated. I never thought about the idea of just a final three. I always assumed the number five would return in Sherry’s absence, but maybe that’s not the case. If it’s just three and not four, then the lip sync for the crown will have to be done differently, and isn’t it “different” enough as a Zoom finale this year? Crystal surging as a dark horse winner is excellent and just as I predicted. I’m tired of both Gigi and Jaida at this point, so even if one of those two queens look better on paper as the winner, the rules have flown completely out of the window this season, so why not have an upset winner too? Nice maxi challenge and decent lip sync only.

    Sad for Jackie. I guess we were so certain about a top 4 that we forgot it wasn’t really necessary. With a digital reunion and finale, who needs a number 4? Nobody will be able to compete like they envisioned with a top 4 and the wheel, so a top 3 is more than enough. 3 performances from their homes, Ru chooses, we complain, onto AS5.

    And lol at Sherry Pie ending up with the ultimate revenge. “Oh, Sherry Pie won’t be at the finale? Then nobody will go to the finale. In fact, there won’t be a finale!”

    I was very surprised by how this elimination went. Nobody really deserved to go home, so, going with scorecards makes sense. But then you can’t put the girl who’s been on top 5 straight weeks and won last week on the bottom with Jackie who was also one of the best this week. It all felt so random and weird.

    I’d like to know, like, really, honestly know, if this was the best they could do with Jaida’s voice. I couldn’t believe how terrible it all sounded. Why did they do this?

    Gigi deserved her win. Sherry deserved her top placement too. To me, Jaida’s voice ruined her first part, so she would’ve been in the bottom with whoever decided to do her like that and that person should’ve gone home.

    Very happy for Crystal 100% earning her spot in the final 3/4. Glad she wasn’t the one who needed Sherry’s elimination to get to the finale. But there’s not narrative here for a win. Had she won Droop and the makeover as she should have, I would say there’s enough support from the show, but Ru just sees her as an endearing weird drag queen with a mullet, not a winner. No way in hell she wins.

    Finally, is there something going on between Jackie and Gigi? Did I miss an Untucked? They tried to show them in a non existent feud a couple of times during this episode, it was extremely random and it didn’t work.

    Celebrity Drag Race was….yeah. I couldn’t tell you. I lost interest for some reason, we just started talking and checking our phones. Something about this group of girls just dind’t click.

    Now it really does make sense that the Vanessa Williams episode was supposed to be the 4th episode and finale, because this was the only bad episode out of the four.

    My guess is that episode 1 didn’t really get any hype out there, so they threw the Vanessa Williams episode second so people would watch. But I don’t think it worked either. I would’ve gone with Vanessa as the premiere, Nico/Kevina Hart second, this dud as third and last week’s episode as the finale.

    This wasn’t a bad show at all, it could go on. But Canada Drag Race is already coming in August and they still have to do Season 13, AS6 and UK2 and then rush back to do those 3 again I suppose. Thanks to Corona, I don’t know if we’ll see this again anytime soon.

    I am team Crystal because she definitely brings something different to the table which is what I always felt and which is what Crystal said in this past episode. I would be happy with a Jaida win. Jaida can definitely paint and knows how to pull a look together for the runway and hell, even in quick drag too.

    To me, it should be between Gigi and Jaida. They have been the class of the season so far. They have shined in multiple types of challenges: look, comedy, acting. If it were up to me, it’d just be a top 2. I know folks like how different Crystal is, but I just don’t get it. She seems super nice and bubbly, but I’m not getting what I get from Gigi and Jaida. I also wasn’t a Sherry fan, not just because she’s a catfishing predator, but also she was too much the same each week. Plus, her Hepburn impersonation was just one long awful Parkinsons joke and that’s it.

    I’m interested to see if they bring up SP at all during next week’s reunion. I’m interested to see how the final 3 happens as well.

    Celeb drag race was kinda meh. It was the weakest of the 4. I don’t think it’s because I had never heard of them. I did like Hayley’s inner struggle with dressing feminine. But overall, it lacked the punch of the other 3.

    Gigi will win and deservedly so. Celebrity Drag Race really stretched the term “celebrity.”

    Celebrity Drag Race really stretched the term “celebrity.”

    Pretty much every reality competition show with celebrities involved always plays fast and loose with the actual “celebrities”.

    I surprisingly knew all of them beforehand except for Jermaine & Matt.

    Honey, everyone did well this week.  However, there had to be a bottom 2.  Everyone looked nice on the runway.

    Rankings – Top 4:
    1. Jaida – Turned it! She should win.

    2. Gigi – this bitch makes me sick, but she turned it.  A win would be Violet Chachki & Aquaria 2.0.  I’m NOT here for it!

    3. Crystal – I really like her and she seems like a sweetheart.  However, her report card isn’t as strong as Gigi and Jaida.  I’ll take her over Gigi.

    4. Jackie – It was her time!  She paled in comparison to the other girls.  She should’ve been eliminated weeks ago.

    *. Sherry – Would’ve been 3rd, based on report card.
