Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 9: Talk Show, Balk Show

It was clearly NOTHING BUT SHADE! Sending Trinity K home... Didnt understand why she was even there??? Yes she fucked that interview up but her runway look was EVERYTHING! And did way better then Ms. Fox, with her poor ass interview & "meaty tuck" lol... in reality it should have been Adore & Joslyn and thats where the shade lies because Trinity had no business being in the bottom two when Joslyn did worst then both of the queens put together! Im fuckin over Ru.. idk if im even going to continue watching, it was a disappointment and very uncalled for and clearly the show is fixed, smfh...

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 9: Talk Show, Balk Show

Honestly, my complaint, particularly in this episode, is the edit. Clearly they focused on Joslyn, who obviously bombed from what we saw. BUT, even Adore thought it was going to be between her and Trinity. The actual reactions that we do see seem to indicate that it really wasn't quite as horrendous as it was at the time. Hell, maybe the rest of her interview went pretty smoothly (if crude). To me, that means that the editing just got completely out of hand, emphasizing Joslyn's mistake because it was juicier for TV than the others.
And the drama in this Untucked episode was so ridiculously over-contrived.

Trinity didn't put abortion or coming out of someone's private parts in her interview, which was totally disgusting by the way. She didn't say "Cool" when Cher's mother spoke about "The Depression"... There was so much bull going around on this episode it's pathetic. Yet Doo-Raul sends Trinity home. I'm done watching what I thought was the only show NOT tampered with.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 9: Talk Show, Balk Show

Trinity was totally robbed, I'm done with RPDR, something's fishy indeed. There was no way she should have been put up last night. Others screwed up the challenge and runway but still were safe? Trinity messed up the interview but rocked the runway flawless, yet was put up for elimination and sent home? PLEASE! Half of them weren't even dam animals, one said she was a panther mixed with a Mortal Combat character... WTF! Shouldn't you be able to tell what animal it was as they came out. How many had to explain what the hell they were? TRINITY WAS ROBBED! Rupaul and his drag race is obviously fixed.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 9: Talk Show, Balk Show

What the hell is Joslyn still doing in the competition? She is bringing nothing on the runway except cheese (and now meat). I feel like this show just drops people when they know that person's story arc is done. Trinity had nowhere else to go (in their eyes). She triumphed last week and overcame her self doubt, so boom!--her story is done and she goes.
I absolutely do not want to see another runway look from Joslyn. If she pulls out the Stephanie Seymour wedding dress from November Rain, I'm done.

Teresa: Thank you for confirming that it was indeed Dave, the man who "killed Judy Garland." While watching the episode I wondered, but it seemed unlikely to me. I guess someone really likes being on this show...

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

Everything about this review was spot on, but I only have one critique. In terms of the partner challenge I placed their performance as following: Adore, Bianca, Trinity, Joslyn, Darienne, Courtney, Ben, Laganja *keeping their assigned personas in mind*.

(Darienne and Ben were funny but it was not like the exercise commercial which was pure comedy, this was selling products and Ru is very particular about challenges in which you sell products).

I will say Bianca and Trinity should have won (in addition to their amazing runway looks) because combined Laganja made it look bad. Yet I still think Darienne and Ben deserved the bottom two.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

I know Darienne is a hometown girl and all, but she is coming off as just plain unlikable, possibly due to the edits like you mentioned. But a few more episodes of nastiness, especially towards DeLa, and she'll run the risk of being this year's bully-Roxxy style.
That said--Hallelujah! Laganja is gone.

I was at the Seattle showing last night, hosted by Jinkx. It was Dave in the back. He was also the one that heckled DeLa. Jerk.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

Awesome review! Question to the public though-Am I the only one who thought the "sleeping guy" in the back with the sunglasses, who couldn't crack a smile, looked suspiciously like Dave (Jinkx's Navy partner from "Super Troopers" from last season)? Seriously, that's all I could see every time they showed him on camera.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

Great review! I feel like there aren't any real bitches left in the competition so Darienne, Courtney and Laganja had to suffer the editors creative efforts. Although (fake bitchyness or not) I'm getting really tired of Courtney, I love her completely outside of the competition but I feel like she's dragging down the show. The past 5 episodes the only worthwhile moment she gave me was that black&white runway look. I think the reason they're showing so little of her is because she's giving the editors very little to work with. In the little snippets she gets she's so dull, she needs to put that calculator away and give us something.

I felt really shocked at the episode 7 winners and losers as well. Although the cougar commercial was far from great and the voices where atrocious to listen to. At least it had the CUNT Rupaul is looking for. While the "mean girls" and "housewifes" commercials excelled in mediocracy (which in drag world is even worse than being bad). IMO it was definitely the housewifes that gave the worst commercial. During shooting AND in the final result. Of all commercials this was the only one that would make me put my adblock on, the others where at least ... intriguing. But I felt that this shouldn't have been a team elimination, it should have been Laganja vs Joslyn or Courtney hopefully sending Ganja home. UNLESS of course they already planned from advance that this was going to be the episode in which they wouldn't eliminate anyone (last season it also happened in episode 7) and therefore put Darienne and Dela in the bottom. Play a song in which they knew Darienne would outstage Dela, of course they had to keep Dela since she has been the strongest competitor up untill that point and didn't even do that bad during the episode. But that theory would insinuate scripting and I would never accuse drag race of that ;)

Although I hope this will be the last time they did that, it's getting boring and predictable. I would have prefered them bringing back an eliminated queen (preferably Kelly Mantle) over this very fake "you where both so good I can't choose, so I'm gonna keep ya both" drama. Perhaps with an entire episode in which they have all eliminated queens fight for a place back in the competition (instead of just randomly picking one).

Than came episode 8, the first episode in which Dela actually showed weakness. And how. A complete unexpected bomb. Being read on both performance and runway. While she should have been in her element in this challenge. It seems like she fell deep off her high horse after that episode 7 wake-up call. I hope she can pull herself together.

At this point I really have no idea who's gonna reach top 3. I feel like it could be anyone, only Bianca seems to be sure of top 3 (or is that what they want us to believe). ALL of this seasons comedy queens (Dela, Darienne, Bianca) are still in the competition so because of versatility reasons I feel like one of them might be going home very soon. Probably Darienne, although I love her she's the "always number two" in this competition. Even in the ONLY challenge she won so far, she only won because Dela was in the overall losing team and therefore couldn't win. But I truelly admire Darienne's spirit. Even though she always seems to be in the shadow, she's a fighter. If you dare to push her down she will get up and roll all over you!

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

Awesome review. Pretty much spot on with everything, though I just can't seem to get on Team Courtney. I feel like she's pulling a Detox and just sort of sliding from competition to competition, and not really showing any fire or passion. Plus the editors seem to be giving her a rather unflattering edit, considering they hardly even showed her once during the Snatch Game / Rapping challenges and seem to be focusing on her digs towards Joslyn.

Fantastic recap! As awesome as P!nk is, boo on the bar. You HAVE to watch this week's Untucked(s)! Especially episode 8.

If you're not watching Untucked, you're not doing drag. (Said with love in Alaska's voice).

darling don't feel bad! Even in the US logo is blocking their website so that people have no choice but to buy the stupid app phone. LAME! And I agree, great review.

Check project free tv and watch the episodes 2 or 3 days later (for free)!
