And then there ended up 4. Once again. Thursday’s penultimate episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 commenced by welcoming one particular queen back again to the competitiveness, then finished by crushing an additional queen’s aspiration solely.
Let us begin with the twist that we all observed coming: In spite of profitable — nay, crushing — 6 lip syncs in a row, Silky Nutmeg Ganache was as soon as all over again despatched sashaying absent. Alternatively, the coveted fifth location went to Eureka, which signifies we can quite significantly fail to remember that the complete recreation inside a recreation matter even transpired.
Transferring on, this week’s mini problem was a Levi’s-sponsored Satisfaction image shoot. I am not confident why they would do a Satisfaction-themed problem in the thirty day period of *checks calendar* August, but at the very least it was not as disastrous as when the Time 12 queens did a Frozen-themed runway… even though the Broadway demonstrate was shut down owing to the pandemic… and soon in advance of Disney ultimately introduced it was closing for very good. Oof. In any case, a astonishingly coated-up Kylie Sonique Like slayed this problem, earning a effectively-deserved acquire.
As for this week’s maxi problem, the queens ended up tasked with telling individual tales from their life as drag queens for a manufacturing of The Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Expertise Monologues — and the remaining final results ended up all more than the (Alec) map(a).
Ra’Jah O’Hara advised a humorous tale about her overconfidence as a child queen, which include her initial-at any time tuck fall short Kylie recalled her initial time in drag, which was also the initial time she at any time felt that her femininity was celebrated Trinity K. Bonet opened up about receiving catfished, only for that fish to expose that Trinity’s openness about her HIV position truly saved her lifestyle Ginger shared a charming memory about her mom gifting her a pair of ruby slippers as a youthful homosexual baby and Eureka regaled the judges with a tale about, effectively, unintentionally crapping herself following undertaking a break up. Like I mentioned, it was a blended bag. All nuts.
Talking of splits, this week’s Trendy Style Fails runway discovered the queens sporting much less-than-great seems to be, from Trinity’s protection-pinned robe to Ginger’s burnt-hair-really don’t-treatment promenade ensemble. And even though I liked seeing Kylie pull a corn pet out of her skirt, I was not anticipating her to truly try to eat it. Which is motivation proper there.
I also was not anticipating Eureka to be named the winner of this week’s competitiveness. I appreciate me some Eureka, but her monologue did not flooring me, and her runway glance was almost nothing to publish household about. Providing her the acquire felt far more like the show’s way of proving that they picked the proper queen to arrive back again.
I am not heading to lie, I was sort of hoping that this week’s lip sync assassin would switch out to be Silky, even if it was just an additional Bianca Del Rio faux-out minute. (Keep in mind when that transpired? Damn, this time truly has been on for a lengthy time.) Of program, I was far more than thrilled to see the one particular and only Jaida Essence Corridor acquire the phase. She’s an amazingly gifted queen whose reign quite significantly acquired the shaft (many thanks, pandemic!), so I am often down to give her an additional minute in the highlight.
And the surprises did not cease there. I signify, arrive on… Minor Richard’s Superior Golly, Skip Molly? Kennedy Davenport would like to have a phrase. And presented her background of profitable, I was completely geared up for Jaida to wipe the flooring with Eureka, but the Elephant Queen is also not one particular to be underestimated. Eureka introduced the moves, she gave a gorgeous ru-veal and she pulled out a literal clown nose to entire her glance. At that position, I truly believed Eureka would stroll absent with the acquire, but I also did not disagree with Ru’s selection of a tie.
In accordance with All Stars procedures (of which there are several!), this intended that equally queens whose lipsticks ended up decided on would get the chop. The team selected Trinity, which did not solely shock me… but when Eureka also selected her? The goopery! I know it could not have been an straightforward selection, primarily thinking of how shut Eureka and Trinity have grow to be this time, but was it the proper one particular?
I am not so confident. I recognize that procedures are procedures, but this just feels completely wrong someway. As Trinity mentioned previously in the episode, I acquired that Major four location, and now I am just unhappy that it could be taken absent from me. And taken it was.
Alright, let us chat: Was Eureka the proper queen to return to the recreation? And need to Trinity truly have gotten the boot? Weigh in through our poll under, then fall a remark with your views forward of future week’s finale.
