Snatch Game.

Yeah. It’s time.

THAT CHALLENGE

~ 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*)

Not again...

~ 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.

TOP THREE

(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.)

BOTTOM THREE

~ 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.)

~ PEPPERMINT

THAT LIP-SYNC

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.

THAT ELIMINATION

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.

FAVE QUOTES

~ 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.

Much love!

~ Liv “Queen” Moody
