All of it. I mean, the makeover show is always a winner and this season’s was no exception. Easily my favourite episode of this year. So many great moments, so many funny one-liners, so many fabulous looks. This process, year after year, seems to bring out the best qualities in everyone participating. It’s like Queer Eye with the brightness turned up.
Okay, so finally I get why they’re bitching about Aquaria. She has a real lack of empathy for what the others are going through. That said, I still don’t see it as malicious, more just a lack of judgement. And again, she at least has the emotional intelligence to learn from her what she’s done and apologise when it’s needed. More than can be said for most.
Asia won the night for me. Her and America served up some fucking Janet Jackson Black Cat meets Madonna Express Yourself dragliciousness. And Asia in Untucked sitting there with her titties lovin’ herself sick in that weave was too much to bear. Werk bitch! I was deceased.
Just when you thought Kameron Michaels was the worst drag name you’ve ever heard: I give you, Kelly Michaels. I mean, seriously.
Did they drive Monet to the airport wearing a leopard onesie, a floral hat, glitter eyes and lashes, and that big old sponge dress to check in? Heaven!
Are we still using “proportionised”?
God it’s so tedious when those straight boys have to make a point of saying “my girlfriend” within the first 30 seconds of sitting down, right? We get it, Biff: You’re straight. Now shut up and tuck.
Asia: A bitch can’t even get a second chance around here without some salty ass ho tryin’a be making it about her.
Cracker: But I think if there’s anyone that could be an ambassador on what makes drag wonderful it’s me.
Kingsley: I started making videos cos I couldn’t find anyone around me that cared about, like, Britney.
Kelly Michaels to Kameron (on makeup room chatter): … they’re having so much fun, but you get to focus on being … diligent.
Monet (exiting): Cha-ching, motherfuckas! Cha-ching.
Cracker coming for Eufreka in Untucked was unnecessary. She was a lot more convincing than the Tracey Turnbladd wannabe you turned out.
IT AIN’T WHAT YOU WEAR…
Eureka and Eufreka looked like a fucking babooshka doll, popping out from behind. I was just waiting for one of the Little Women of LA to then pop out from behind them.
IT’S HOW YOU WEAR IT
Anyone else ACHE for Ru’s look this week? That sequined/croc frock and the green to yellow eye was gagapalooza. I mean, that is some glamour right here. I don’t say this often but … **clenched teeth** … well done Raven.
ONE MORE THING
Can someone please make a gif of Monet swingin’ her saggy-ass boobs and calling out “Titties! Titties!” ???
YOU’RE A WINNER BABY…
You’re all gonna come for me, but I did not think this was a deserving win. Sure, I thought Cracker did an amazing job on the looks, but on the runway Cookie was like a footballer in a dress, twerking and stomping. And all that preening just made me think of Jaymes Mansfield. I just did not get this at all. Cracker finally got her win though so good for her.
Kameron Michaels vs Monet X Change lip syncing to ‘Good Ass Hell’ by Lizzo:
I’ve never heard this song in my life, but I liked it a lot. I thought Monet would be all over this jam, but she didn’t seem as confident with the lyrics. I did love her leaving the stage moment and then coming back with a split leap slide to the front, but Ru just seemed confused by it.
Comparatively, Kameron lip sync’d THA FUCK outta this joint. She knew every word, every detail, every breath. I still can’t quite get my head around the fact that quiet, considered Kameron is a beast onstage. It’s unnerving to see this mild mannered introvert turn on and own it.
I mean, there was no question.
Kameron shat the bed, but then lip sync’d for her life when it really mattered.
And I am devastated Monet is gone.
But here we are.
So we have a Top 5
