Mini Challenge: Talk your way backstage at a Seduction concert
Maxi Challenge: Diva Worship - a she-vangelical talk show centring on worshipping a pop diva
Guest Judges: Guillermo Diaz, Troye Sivan
-----

now that was one hell of an episode!

- the Britney team was SO good! I thought Vanjie would win this by a landslide. So funny.
- Vanjie wearing ONLY red for the FOURTH TIME including the entrance! I'm shocked Michelle isn't clocking her for this.
- good GOD the Mariah team! shambles. why didn't they pick Beyonce or Gaga?? They needed to rely on visual gags a bit and the Britney team made it work with the iconic hair flip.
- I didn't find Plastique to be THAT bad. yeah, some of the things didn't work but at least she picked a character and tried.
- the messy elimination. Honey was trying SO hard lmao. fair chop if you ask me.
- Guillermo Díaz *.* WOOF!
- Trump the Rusical, oh GOSH it's going to be fabulous

Yeah that was quite an episode!

- Britney team was an obvious winner even only 1 minute into their performance. SO good!
- Vanjie was an obvious stand-out in the challenge and had me in stitches the entire time. Feel like she should have won this.
- I think Plastique was really the only one to actually make an effort and even though sure her character didn't work I feel like it's mainly because everything else was so bad that it was like a domino effect. She made a character that would have worked if the rest of her team mates hadn't f***ed everything else up too lol.
- Shuga and Akeria slayed that runway! OMG *.*
- Would have preferred Rajah to go as she annoys me but Honey definitely effed that mess of a lipsync. As soon as she jumped down I was like ok she's gone.

that is probably my favourite lipsync song choice to date! wub.gif up there with the previous Hex Hector track ('Nobody's Supposed To Be Here') and 'Show Me Love' / 'Mesmerized (Freemasons Remix)'. I love a good ole GAY ANTHEM poppers choice x

• Vanjie killed it in the challenge but Nina was also a deserving winner. She was the glue the kept the whole thing together because she could have easily broke character after Vanjie’s bit.
• Honey & Raja were the weakest links in the Mariah group. It looked like they were singing two songs over each other. A mess.
• The Ariana bit was hilarious although there was room for improvement
• I wanna know how the judges managed to focus on the lip sync. My eyes went to Plastique & Scarlett; they did well. Honey tried WAY TOO HARD so I’m not surprised she’s gone. Her reaction during Untucked was heartbreaking though.
• Yvie DESTROYED IT on the runway! She’s making bold choices and they’re clearly working.

I think this may be my favourite season of drag race so far?! The episode was really good!!

I think Vanjie didn't win the challenge due to her runway - it was rather average compared to everyone else. Not to mention Nina did a really good job as team leader and I thought she thoroughly deserved the win. I loved her runway outfit - it gave me Thorgy thor vibes. I wasn't expecting it either from Nina given her runway track record so far.

The Britney team was so good overall. I was happy to see Ariel/Silky put aside their differences to work together and I couldn't stop laughing at the conversion.

The Mariah team was car crash TV, but I kinda loved it for that reason. I didn't think Plastique or Akeria were that bad - they just needed to polish their performance a little bit more. If the hosts were a little better, it would've likely been a Honey/Rajah bottom 2.

I was gagged at the 6 person lip sync. I was expecting 2-3 people to get the chop, given this season has the most amount of queens so far. I thought we'd lose Rajah & Honey at the least. But after Honey's bad performance, she was definitely the right person to send home. Which make me think we'll get a double elimination in the future or perhaps another multiperson lip sync.

Yvie absolutely stole me after this Untucked. She has SO much sense. I love how outspoken yet down to earth she appears. Not to mention her runways. GURL! Stunning.

Watching this now... Plastique's 'ARIANA' made me laugh.

They're a mess! Ross' face is so funny as he just looks confused thinking WTF is happening.

Honey looked like an upturned insect writhing on the floor at times during that lipsync

Love me some Troye heart.gif

They were way too harsh on Plastique. Her concept was fine. I wasn’t here for her ‘i don’t know pop culture excuse though’.


Vanjie should have won but I’m glad Nina did well as I’m a fan.

Mercedes screwing up her line and Ariel’s reaction was sort of the unintentional highlight of the episode... I still keep rewatching and it kills me laugh.gif I can’t help but love her in the same way I loved Cynthia, both just so... unable to prove themselves but so unintentionally hilarious and lovable that I don’t care at all.

So happy Nina got her win here, again, just so likeable and the fact that she’s starting to prove herself is great. Hopefully she stays at this level now!

“Ariana, Ariana... Mariah, MARIAH” *awkward attempt at dolphin screeching noises*

I was wheezing at that part

I gasped when Yvie came down the runway. She's now the queen I look forward to seeing the most. The Britney team were fantastic (Vanjie let herself down with her look). I don't think Plastique was as bad as the judges said, she actually attempted something unlike the rest of her team.

What a fantastic episode though? Two in a row that feel like the Drag Race we fell in love with? Who knew.

Fab episode, Nina's team was brilliant all round. Miss Vanjie totally stole the show, I can't believe she didn't win! She just has that star power where you can't take your eyes off of her and basically everything she does is utter hilarity. A third red runway in a row though, and this one was quite basic. I can see why Nina did win based on the challenge, in a challenge like that one, having someone who can keep it all together easily is really needed and she was consistently funny even if not to the degree Vanjie was. Neither were among the best runways either so it's not Nina snatched on that. Oh well, I was very glad to see Nina get recognition anyway wub.gif

The other team was Macbitch levels of bad though, both anchors really just weren't there (which again highlighted what a brilliant job Nina did) and the song part was just woeful. Plastique and Akeria were the only saving graces, nothing too brilliant but they at least tried and shouldn't have been lumped in with the other four.

The lipsync was also a hot mess, but I kinda loved it laugh.gif As I said, I think they could at least have saved Plastique and Akeria who did actually try to have a concept, by playing on the Ariana/Mariah comparisons. 3 or at a push 4 in the lipsync might have been fine, Drag Race Thailand has done a 3 way lipsync twice this season iirc and they worked, but 6 is really pushing it. It's hard to stand out, hard to have the space, but Honey just diving off the stage and doing god knows what had me howling, how on earth did she think that was ok? rotf.gif Ru's face said it all.

AS for Untucked, Yvie *.* *.* *.* She is just cementing herself as my fave alongside Vanjie, she's so real and honest but still likeable, I totally agree with blacksquare that she always leaves me wanting to see what she does next because I Silky is also still unbearable, I legit said to myself "oh Silky is better this week" and then SECONDS later there we go laugh.gif Rajah is also pretty unlikeable, I kind of wish she went over Honey but from that lipsync it had to be Honey really.

Totally agreed that this season feels quite classic already, dare I say it's shaping up to be the best season since 6!

Was the sound a bit off for anyone else on Untucked? Sounded like they were in a cave with all the echoey-ness! laugh.gif
