These posts are so worth the wait. It's obvious how much effort you put into these. To malaprop Pam Tillis, this one is "DEVASTATING."

I never even thought of the idea of Alaska coming out as Sharon. That could have been pretty great, because it appears to me like she's doing Lady Bunny-lite here for the roast. I'm hoping now the wheat has bid farewll to the chaff we'll see what our queens are really made of.

I thought it was a good move to go first myself. She killed it. I have been replaying that onomatopoeia of RuPaul's legs in my mind over and over and over. I would also point out that Jinkx's mug was so flawlessly beat this round that provided this level is maintained she should silence the "glamazon-polizei" (aka Visage).

I was surprised nobody mentioned vodka AT ALL. I would have at least made some comment about thanking Absolut (if not explicitly the lacklustre Moran) for getting me hrough my community service by lowering my standards for so many otherwise unscrewable men (and vice versa). Beverly Leslie... I mean Leslie Jordan's critiques were extra-great. I appreciate the notes from the professional actors & writers. Maybe I'm biased but after Miss Julie Brown (a personal fave) praising Jinkx, with LJ's comments, I wouldn't worry about pleasing anyone anymore. You do you, Jinkx!

I wanted to note the professional picture that was going around the other day of Mlle Monsoon, that Manilla was saying looked like she was wearing the lifetime supply of colorevolution cosmetics. Someone smells a winner. I wonder how much contact the queens get (and the opportunity to leech technical knowledge) from @Mathuism?

I agree, totally worth the wait - and yes, Alaska should have gone out as Sharon Needles!

Having said that, I loved her bit and loved Jinkx's, but I'm okay with spreading out the wins.

You write a great recap. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you...

Love these recaps so much - all week I anticipate the shows and then once the shows are done, I anticipate the recap. Now the cycle begins again!
Really like how you have kind of put the whole picture from Roxxxy's perspective together. I'm not a huge fan of Roxxxy but when you put everything into context, the breakdown makes complete sense. And, adding in the tiredness from the long shooting days, it's really no wonder. I think people who say she was faking it are being a tad too cynical. None of the other girls in the competition seemed to think it was fake and surely they are the ones with the greatest licence to be cynical, no? It's one thing to criticise the show for being emotionally manipulative but it's another thing to say the people (real people!) in it were faking it.
That said, as soon as it was Alyssa and Roxxxy in the bottom two I had a feeling it was going to be a non-elimination. No idea why. And, like Detox and Alaska, I feel a bit frustrated by that!
I think Untucked was edited really strangely. Probably because, as you say, they had the D&M moment re: Jinkx & Roxxxy earlier on and then went to the 'I can't understand the irony of me criticising someone for being insecure' moment re: Jinkx afterwards. I wonder if they really happened in that order. It seemed odd to me. I really wish we could have heard more of what Ivy/Detox/Alaska said to Jinkx too, they just showed us glances and confessional footage.
Totally agree re: Coco. It was amusing but I didn't find it anywhere near as funny as RuPaul seemed to find it and it really did scream 'sharing the wins' to me. I just don't see why the win couldn't have been shared with Alaska. Their criticism of her seems ad hoc to me - isn't going first BRAVE and, as you said, smart??
Oh, and love the pic re: Moran. He's so... arrrggghhhhhh!

eulogy

Great post! Check out the Coco gloating preview and there’s a sweet moment in the end when Alaska and Jinkx are at their workstation talking about Alaska not winning a challenge. Alaska has her hand on the chair and Jinkx’s hand is resting on Alaska’s. I’m not predicting them as the kai kai couple but but where is it? Being saved for the reunion? *ripoff

My thoughts on Alaska playing a strategic game this season? Once again she lost screen time not having a "defining moment". The show & Ru tweeted it was a defining episode in the season but it wasn't HERS! Rolaskatox IRONY!Ro stole her show and we ended up with seven sisters yada yada.

I think she blew it with the alliance from day one. It was very high risk to think you could recreate The Heathers without any organic foundation. Trying to recreate Heathers is foolish, it was a onetime phenomenon.

Figuring Alaska out is tricky. Is she just a joiner or does she actually have a point of view and leadership qualities? Because by now it seems RuPaul is looking for something deeper than the fashion (a la Raja’s “why you?” runway reply “for all the little boys”.) Sharon had that too, and that’s the “heart” Ru’s looking for. If that's true where does that leave the rest of them?

If Alaska came in worried about being in Sharon's shadow she really should have focused on dominating the season with a strong, independent, identifiable personality but she came off as someone we could gleam nuggets from but then what? A nice cute congenial person, not a leader, who likes groupthink, with a sense of humor is all she has left. And even in Untucked I’m not hearing any leadership like Jinkx’s. It’s almost like she’s shy or doesn’t want to blow it by risking speaking out, even in Untucked except for this week. But she didn't do herself any favors doing Stacy Lane Matthews 2.0 with ”I don’t know what to do.” tears. Maybe I'm forgetting other moments but that's how memorable they were then.

A hard position. She could have taken the opportunity to call out the pageant cray instead of silently ignoring it. Sometimes her confessionals are better than her on screens. As if she’s afraid to make comments on screen. Rolaskatox almost overshadowed her individual challenge accomplishments but Rolaskatox was nothing so ~wonk-wonk.

To me, Rolaskatox illustrates the problem with Roxxxy and Detox having an exaggerated view of their capabilities. Thinking they're so fabulous that just announcing an alliance would be something memorable. Winning a pageant or being part of WILLAM's videos doesn't make you all that. They are "Willam Belli featuring Detox and vicky"

Neither has been impressive so far in performance regardless that Detox does have the a fabulous wardrobe, that'll only get you so far. (Bebe-Tyra backlash).

She's a tall bombshell then full stop. Roxxxy doesn't resonate with me for any reason so there's nothing I can say that's very complimentary. They both can walk a runway and can act confident. Roxxxy didn't blow the Snatch Game or Amen performance but that's a low bar. They both played RuPaul, ironically ,and neither one resembled Ru at all IMO while simultaneously not impressing in the dance portion.

For sure I have concerns about Jinx and the final wardrobe heavy challenges coming up. Does she even sew? At this point tho I can't imagine the producers eliminating Jinkx because we've never had a professional quadruple threat on this show. I'm not even sure RuPaul has that resume: professional trained singer, dancer, actor, stand up and improv all mostly done in drag - for a mainstream audience. Shangela is close but not really and I'm not aware of her being the star of her tv shows unlike Jinkx in theater.

Thank you for your blog!

As always, a stellar recap, and totally worth the wait! And I agree with you - Jinkx was robbed of another win. I like your theory that to avoid another "Sharon winning 4 challenges" scenario that maybe RuPaul is spreading the wealth with the wins. But that makes it pretty unfair to JInkx not to have won the others that were due to her. Which also makes it unfair to Alaska, since she was clearly the only threat Jinkx had in this challenge. But Coco? I mean, it wasn't a bad performance, but she was outshone by two other queens.

JiveHonkey

After still thinking about this episode, I had to come back with a few more things to add:

• when Leslie Jordan said something to Coco to the effect of "look out Wanda Sykes" I rolled my eyes so hard. Please! Step off, little man.

• the last moment of Roxxxy's explanation mess, I swear she spits out "I'm so tired," which I believe from a production stand point. But then to have to do an on-camera, post-runway, de-dragging kiki...? Shooooes. It's exhausting just to think about.

Finally (it has happened to me), the Pit Crew has been under-utilized this season, so I'm glad to see some more hunks on deck for next week. Gagging with anticipation....
