Last night my living room experienced political upset in the form of Pandora’s elimination from RuPaul’s Drag Race. We have inevitably come to the portion of the competition where everyone is pretty awesome and whoever goes will be missed. Kind of. Over the past few weeks I have loved Tatiana and Raven. But lately Tatiana’s bratty charm has worn thin and her drag game has suffered. She should have been kicked off last week but for some reason she still remains to lip sync another day.
Raven on the other hand has been rocking it hard ever since she was in the bottom two twice in a row. Her hatred for Tatiana has gotten stronger with each week and it’s nothing short of great. She has quickly become my favorite with one exception: Jujubee. Jujubee is flat out the funniest one of the group and the drag persona is equally sassy and bitchy. Last night she looked her best with her shorter hair and giant zebra earrings, but sadly she chose some ugly short hair do for her drag mother and was placed in the bottom two. She lip synced, danced, and wowed the judges resulting in Pandora’s elimination and lots of tears. And I bet my bottom dollar either Jujubee or Raven wins the whole damn thing.
Oh yeah, and Tyra Sanchez still exists. Tyra falls under that category of awesome at what she does but is a terrible human being. I’m torn because she chooses great outfits and hair styles and has a lot of drag talent, but I just want that awful person off my screen pronto.
Mystique finally got booted off of RuPaul’s Drag Race this week, and rightly so. It’s not that I’m against overweight drag queens, but when the drag queen in question is whiny, looks bad in drag, and can’t even pull off a Western look? Send her packing, dammit! The viewing audience breathed a collective sigh of relief during her elimination knowing that we will never ever have to see her attempt to do the splits again.
The final nail in Mystique’s buffet bar was that she didn’t really wow the judges during her team’s commercial spot, which is sad because overall they had the most entertaining commercial. It came down to a lip sync for your life between her and Raven, and if we’ve learned anything about Raven thus far, she is good until it could all be taken away, then she kicks ass and gets shit done. So if you’re ever up against Raven in a head to head, you might as well start walking home. But on that note, Raven, you need to step it up! You are obviously talented and look great in drag, but no more of this bottom two nonsense! The judges will only forgive you so many times.
RuPaul’s Drag Race is back for another sexually confused season on Logo! Does the youth of today even know who RuPaul is outside of his cameo in The Brady Bunch Movie? I for one love drag queens and this show. It’s just so ridiculous. But what an honor to be named the country’s top drag queen. Much more prestigious than being named 1st place in your local gay dance club’s tighty whitey strip show. You go, girls.
