And we’re back! Week three, two queens gone and eleven to go. This week there was a really incredible special guest, PIYAH MARTELL who is a YouTube star. Piyah rose to fame on YouTube because she lip syncs and makes amazing music video in drag, but she has no legs. Hers is a story of triumph and it was a really great moment.
The mini challenge this week is to create a headpiece with a butterfly theme for her to wear in her next YouTube video. Phi Phi, Kenya & Jiggly won the mini challenge, but because Phi Phi and Kenya won a coin toss, they were the team captains for the main challenge…Infomercials for two Ru’s albums: Glamazon & Champion. The captain each chose their teams and surprisingly, LaQueen was chosen last. Um…didn’t she win last week’s challenge? Why was she picked last? And the clincher, Kenya didn’t even want her. She threw a little shade towards her too saying Puerto Rico was not happy with her, so she didn’t want her. HA! Just sprinkling that shade over the show, I’m starting to like Kenya a bit ;)
The infomercials this year were like the exercise videos from last year. Really campy, taking on character and trying to sell a product. Phi Phi’s team took on Champion, and while it was a bit of a mess Sharon and Phi Phi were the standouts. Kenya’s team (with leadership by Milan who kept complaining about a Kenya’s language barrier.) were ok. LaQueer did the spanish thing, as did Kenya and where Yara Sophia’s last year was hilarious, this year it didn’t work that well.
On the runway, the girls had to wear Gold and Platinum (get it…like album sales) and Ru walked out looking better than I have ever seen her. Her hooded slinky dress was STUNNING! I want one in every colour! The looks were good, Chad Michaels was incredible, and Phi Phi‘s was hot too. They were safe along with Milan, Jiggly and Latrice. LaQueer wore a weird alien thing and took off her shoes at judging (tsk tsk) and Sharon rocked a sickening glittered Elvis head peice. Sharon won the challenge while Dida and The Princess landed in the bottom two. Sorry Princess, in my opinion it’s time to go. Dida turned out one of the best lip sync’s the show has ever had…period. It was FLAWLESS! And it was an easy choice for Ru, bye bye Princess.
It’s a real shame because I though she really had something, but sadly she didn’t stand out from the crowd. It takes more than makeup and a fierce bald head to win this show…you need personality and sass!
The untucked was super emotional. It was anniversary of Jiggly’s mom’s death and her brother came on the TV and everyone had a really tough moment. Mama Latrice is really becoming a fan favorite, her compassion and amazing energy is seeping through the TV and it’s amazing to watch. I hope she sticks it out because she’s truly amazing.
Until next week :)
