RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Episode 12 Review – Viva Drag Vegas!

This pen ultimatum episode was one hell of a show with the remaining five queens battling it out for a spot in the finale next week! Gigi, Jaida, Crystal, Jackie and Sherry are will be showcasing their singing and dancing skills as they do a medley from the RuPaul’s Drag Race Live!

To be quite honest, this episode – there’s not really a bottom performance. I thought all of them performed explicitly good! Although I’ve my favorites and thought that Jaida and Gigi performed to their maximum potential! It was just so good!

On the runway, the queens presented their signature drag – eleganza extravaganza! Gigi and Jaida once again killed this one and I’m really torn now on whom I think should win this season!

 

Gigi in the end was declared the winner of the maxi-challenge while Jackie Cox and Crystal Methyd found themselves in the bottom. Like what I’ve said earlier – there really is no bottom performance this week and it all boils down to track record which made Jackie Cox the last New York queen to sashay away this season!

So are you #TeamGigi #TeamCrystal or #TeamJaida?

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Episode 11 Review – One-Queen Show

After a non-elimination lip-sync last week, the six remaining queens are back to battle it out to be America’s Next Drag Superstars. Let’s get straight into it…

For the mini-challenge this episode, they brought back the super fun puppet “reading” challenge where each queen were assigned a puppet of their competitor and perform bitchfest with it. Improv queen Jackie Cox was expected to win the challenge and she did while season’s frontrunner Gigi Goode failed miserably and it’s something that you should be skipping when you re-watch the episode.

For the maxi-challenge, the queens were tasked to write and perform a one-queen which should be within Jackie and Heidi’s ally but lo and behold, another queen actually stole the show!

EGOT winner THE ONE AND ONLY Whoopi Goldberg was also there to guide them through this challenge. Lucky bitches! The girls were given good advices and it looks like it is still anyone’s game because none of the queen stood out during their mini-rehearsal with Whoopi and Ru.

As for their performance, I thought Jackie gave the best skit. I love his timing and I love that he started slow and had a build-up. She’s hands down the best this week, IMO.

The close second is Crystal who presented a hysterical performance! It was funny but wasn’t as good as Jackie’s. Gigi’s performance was actually pretty decent but it’s obvious that all throughout the performance, she was second-guessing herself and look nervous as hell.

Heidi’s routine started okay but it went flat midway and did not recover. The same happened with Jaida who closed the show after Sherry Pie’s inconsiderate 17 minutes performance that was supposed to be 5 minutes only for each queen. I thought Sherry should’ve been in the bottom for this reason alone.

The runway theme is “Color Purple” and the queens up their game for this special runway!

Jaida for me had the best runway look! She’s beautiful, opulent and just ethereal hunty! I daresay that this is her best outfit to date and may be one of the top three outfits of the season!

Gigi wore a Daphne from Scooby Doo costume and she looks flawless as usual! Jackie’s outfit was basically something that Crystal would wear and Crystal is Crystal. She’s a Purple Cow Stunning! Sherry as per usual looks like an old lady. Ugh, I’m getting tired of her face. Heidi, as much as I loved her looks like a pageant girl representing Ramseur.

Lip-sync for your life was between Miss Essence Hall and the blessed and highly favour, Heidi___. I thought they both killed it but Jaida was able to save her ass immediately after having a wig reveal reminiscent of Prince’s haircut while lip-synching of 1999. It was one of the best lip-syncs of the season if I’m being honest.

Heidi will be terribly missed! Her confessions are just total TV gold! A couple of days from today, we’ll know who will make it to the final 4 or perhaps final 3 due to Sherry Pie’s disqualification.

Who do you want to see in the final four?

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Episode 10 Review – Superfan Makeover!

There are six remaining queens in the competition hoping to be part of the upcoming finale in 3 weeks time!

There was no mini challenge this episode, they were instead introduced right away to six female Drag Race super fans who will be participating on the runway as their drag daughters.
Jaida having won the last maxi-challenge assigned the pairings!

Jaida and her daughter won this challenge – mind you, this was Jaida’s third challenge win. She and Gigi who also won three now has the best records in the competition and may very well be in the finale.

I absolutely loved this look. Jaida without question is the face of the competition. Her mug is beat to the gods and the way she resembles her Caucasian daughter is incredible! I’d say that it’s a very well-deserved win.

Crystal and daughter Opal are next giving us, weird but chic clown realness. This is signature Crystal for me. Like the judges, I will also give this a very high grade.

Janet the Planet who unfortunately was chosen to be Sherry Pie’s partner looks absolutely exquisite on stage. I really thought that she’d win this challenge because it was such a transformation and you actually couldn’t tell them apart!

Gigi and Bebe Bad are cute, giving me that spoiled brat Russian heiress realness but I have to agree with guest judge Daisy Ridley – it was just too simple! I wished they actually had a reveal!

I agree with this week’s bottom two – Jackie and Heidi. They have similar concept but the family resemblance and the whole ensemble are kind of off for me.

Fortunately for them, this was a non-elimination episode but if I were to choose the winner from the lip-sync, I’d definitely send Jackie home.
