RPDR SEASON 9, EPISODE 6: "SNATCH GAME"
Posted on 28 April 2017
Yeah. It’s time.
~ AJA as Alyssa Edwards... Girl... No... Don’t do that... She’s already been done by Violet in Season 7...
~ ALEXIS MICHELLE as Liza Minnelli... Great character choice AND great execution!
~ CYNTHIA LEE FONTAINE as Sofia Vergara... Great character choice and BAD execution. Sad because this could’ve been ICONIC, and I’ve been WAITING for a queen to do Sofia Vergara since Roxxxy almost did her for All Stars 2.
~ FARRAH MOAN as Gigi Gorgeous... Again, GREAT choice for her! Like, is she even playing a character?
~ NINA BO’NINA BROWN as Jasmine Masters... I GASPED. PERFECT for her.
~ PEPPERMINT as Nene Leakes... Ugh... Again, COULD have been ICONIC!
~ SASHA VELOUR as Marlene Dietrich... KILLED it, and she looks striking! TBH, I thought her Judith Butler impression in the workroom was great as well. Also, did anyone else clock her “Magical Bitch” necklace in the workroom?! NEED!
~ SHEA COULEÉ as Naomi Campbell... Good, I guess. I didn’t really feel strongly about it one way or the other, TBH ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
~ TRINITY TAYLOR as Amanda Lepore... KILLED IT! GREAT choice for her! She knows how to play the game.
~ VALENTINA as Miss Columbia... I DIED! What a brilliant idea. Slowly starting to root for her.
THAT RUNWAY (*highlights*)
~ AJA: BEST her makeup’s ever looked.
~ TRINITY TAYLOR: KILLED IT.
~ SASHA VELOUR: VERY on brand!
~ FARRAH MOAN: Yes, Farrah, your Madonna probably IS the best Madonna here.
~ VALENTINA: She’s GLOWING! She could’ve easily done another high fashion look, but she took a risk. Loved it.
(Trinity Taylor and Valentina should’ve been here!)
~ ALEXIS MICHELLE WON. Well deserved, especially after not winning last week with Kris Jenner. What a consistent competitor. I’m for it.
~ NINA BO’NINA BROWN
~ SASHA VELOUR (Flawless, fierce. Always.)
~ CYNTHIA LEE FONTAINE (Not her best week :/ )
~ FARRAH MOAN (RuPaul’s critique that her motivation in choosing Gigi was to gain “underground” points was probably Ru’s most substantial critique of anything ever.)
CYNTHIA LEE FONTAINE vs PEPPERMINT, Madonna’s “Music”
It’s kind of a mess? I think it’s significant that no queens’ commentary was spliced in.
Cynthia... sorry bb :/
What a sad exit? She tried to go out on a funny note, but you could tell she was choking back tears.
~ AJA: “Expecially... That was so Brooklyn! First-grade-overbite realness!”
~ NINA: (after ruvealing her Jasmine Masters to Ru) “Did you buy it or did you rent it?”
Pretty solid episode, even if a little sad.
~ Liv “Queen” Moody
