Well, Sixpense might have talked me into doing some kind of talk topic ....I wouldn't quite say recap as not to spoil anything...but more like weekly recap observations and tea. We will see. To be honest, I don't even know I wanted to see another group of bitches...but since Im still home in the pandemic and my girl Tina is on...I felt I had to watch....and found it to be actually pretty entertaining for a first episode for the New Year. Speaking of new year and fresh starts, Ru threw a new twist in....The Pork chop..which was actually a genius way to keep the queens socially distanced while filming in the pandemic. Who knew Ru wasn't just a pretty face or to old to still think? The Porkchop is named for the legendary Victoria Porkchop Parker who was the first queen eliminated the first season. Upon entering the workroom....the queens arrive by two's....and are immediately shocked to be sent to the main stage....where they lip synch for their life right away. I actually liked it!!!! Not only does it give more personal time with them, but we can see right quick what their style and performance is like. The Queen who looses is told to sashay away to their dismay....but actually end up in the Porkchop Loading Dock...a room that pays homage to all the first eliminated queens.
The Porkchop Loading Dock got filled with the queens who didn't win their lip synch....along with Mitch McConnell....who also got the chop this week. I could help but notice with exception to La La Ri and Rose' being in the wrong rooms....I think it clearly shows the top half season queens in the workroom, and what will be the bottom half talent on the loading dock. If I stick by my convictions....the queens in the loading dock will be gone in the top half. We shall see. Some other observations.....
Gottmik.....hands down had the best entrance and overall whole look. She is gonna be fun...but I can tell she's from LA. When she hears a joke she gets it three hours later. But LOVE her aesthetic...and I bet she will surprise and delight.
My old old old gal Tina, and what she is about really shone through....she was so typical Tina Burner ....and the bitch brought it. But then again, a camp, snarky and over top drag always gets me.
Kandy Muse came in loud and ready.....and did that bitch serve it right way. The lip synch was fun....and so typical Kandy style who will use anything as a prop. The boom box was perfection. I still think Kandy will do pretty well if she can watch her eating. Kandy is one of those hos who sits reverse cowgirl style on the toilet to have a flat surface to eat.
I found Olivia Lux very sweet...and a smile to light a room...I think she will do well...but girl....that entrance look??? What did she do, tear down some theater stage drapes!!!!
Which brings us to Olivia's lip synch dragtestant....Rose. Rose looked incredible, performed excellent to the song. She will be top four I think. But henny......she reminds me of a russian doll...full of herself.
I think Tamisha Iman was totally robbed of her lip synch.....she tore up the Pleasure Principle....but I still don't see her going far.
Denali, LA LA Ri and Kahmoira who? I didn't get very memorable vibes or looks. I dare think Denali came across boring and dull...even with performing in ice skates. LA LA Ri reminded me of Joan of Arc....great ideas... executed badly.
Utica Queen shocked me. I didn't think I'd like her but she was addictive which surprised me. If Tammie Brown and Crystal Methyd had a baby it would be Utica. Her looks were giving me major vibes of Drag Race Holland...and her quirkiness was contiguous. I think she'll be a mid way queen.
Elliott? Very pretty...but I see a short trip girls. A bit bland. And I think I know what she got on her SAT'S. Ketchup.
MY least favorite queen was Joey J. I just wasn't feeling that whole look. She is what I see in many bad parts of Philly on corners. And if she wanted to do feathers...she should have consulted Roxxxy Andrews henny. Joey's beauty and fashion is listed right on the side of your milk carton under missing. Yeah honey I went there.I surmise she'll be gone first or second from the loading dock. But if he wants to have a late night Kiki in bed....I wouldn't say no.
And from the previews...can we discuss how swanky Michelle looked???? I think I need that wig she had on. What did you think of the first show? Don't hold back bitches.
