It was two Carmen’s looking lovely, some silicone titties on a boy and a bunch of “her-story” via musical numbers and much needed performing. If I could say just one thing that RuPaul’s Drag Race needs is more performing since that is what queens do. Have them lip-sync not only “for their lives” but more often. Show us the drag in drag queens. OK, stepping off my soapbox now. Judges Jody Watley and Carmen Electra joined a very randy Michelle Visage who flashed her titties under a pixelated blur unexpectedly as she read Alexis for wearing her popular silicone breastplate that the boy queens like to wear now. Oh, I am getting way ahead of myself.
“RuPaul-A-Polooza” was the show’s theme and as Manilla Luzon won the Mini Challenge of musical chairs to a mega-mix of RuPaul you-fill-in-the-blanks music dressed in heels, she also delegated the order of choice for the Main Stage Challenge which gave Shangela, I’m calling her “Shangie” now, time to stir the pot of shade and dra-ma dra-ma-ma. We squealed here at home watching her smile curl like a Cheshire cat as she gave Carmen the idea that maybe Manilla, fellow Heather, had motives about choosing her next to last to a choose style of music to vocally perform of Ru’s latest song “Superstar.” Let the Lady Boy Music Festival begin! Oh, back up. If you’re sober or don’t drink, sorry. Enter Absolut with cocktails. Here drink this. Repeated product placement ensues. Love it!
The rundown of musical stylings for the Dolls happened like this… Manilla chose Disco for herself and did alright. Loved her Afro! Raja chose second and grabbed Punk, and won. Yara picked Pop and showed body for points. Alexis naturally chose Hip-Hop and was coined as “Strip-Hop.” Complacent Carmen tried to pull off that she was happy with being stuck with Reggae but was tragic and ended in the bottom two. Shangela ended up with Country and also made believe it would have been a favorite choice. She also dropped to the final lip-sync-off on the main stage again Carrera.
Cher’s “Believe” was the final number and even though Carmen is sickening to look at, very lovely, Shangela won that hands-down even without her perfectly placed “death-drop” at the end. At the beginning of the episode Carmen and Yara were wondering why RuPaul gave the two of them another chance last week. Vapid Carmen naturally replied that the other contestants should be seeing her as a threat. Shangie commented in her confessional, “Can someone just slap her and wake her up?!” Fierce. Final 5.
