RuPaul returns for it

RuPaul’s Drag Race returned for its second week with Good God Woman, Get Out. Do you have to take the recommendation and run, or keep it up?

Drag Race Season 11 Episode 2 Good God Woman, Get Out and Why it Gotta be Black Panther? the decision

How a lot Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Expertise was episode two packing?



General: C.U.

Gia Gunn’s again! Nicely, in spirit. Ru’s frightened Season 11 will probably be a repeat of Season 9, and has chosen to repair it by channelling Villanelle herself.

Should you’re a semi-legendary queen—or Derrick Barry—you’ll be able to come again for a mini problem. In case you’re an influential queen (Violet Chachki) you’ll be able to encourage a runway. However solely the baddest of bonafide bitches can affect the boss.

RuPaul was absoluteeeely completed with any extra best-friend-race buffoonery, and is firing some Gia Gunn-shaped warning photographs on the queens to amp up the drama.

Stir, mama, stir.

Problem: C.u

Drag Race stays on-brand this week by ignoring our protests and plowing forward with yet one more appearing problem.

So we needed to sit by means of Good God Woman, Get Out, which had some respectable appearing and—virtually—a message.

And Why It Gotta Be Black, Panther? which informed the heart-wrenching story of a lady who smoked a joint and went shoe purchasing. These scripts had completely no redeeming qualities and the writers have used up their 9 lives.

Critically, Wakanda idiot hires the identical group behind the bloated boob-job of Breastworld, 9-Zero-2-1-hell-to-the-no, and Intercourse and the wait-where-has-Manila-gone?

Lewks: C.U.

Class is: What’s Your Signal?

It’s a story of two runways. A number of—Miss Vanjiee, Yvie Oddly, Scarlet Envy—have been ridin’ Gemin-high. However the remaining have been a most cancers on that stage—Gemin-bye (sorry).

No less than Ru appeared Moonlit.

The Huge Queer-stions: ‘skinny disgrace’, immigration and Michael Jackson

Untucked has discovered its groove dissecting the problematic elements of drag.

It might look extra like The Massive Questions than an ANTM spoof, however in a fandom that’s continually analysing itself to demise (hello), it feels apt. And makes nice TV.

Final week we watched the queens talk about race and sexuality. This week, it was immigration and ‘skinny shaming’ on the agenda.

However first off, I simply can’t with this Davenport duo of Honey and A’keria.

They got here for Silky Nutmeg Ganache for supposedly having some kind of fats privilege.

Everybody of any measurement can really feel insecure about their our bodies. However society praises being skinny and shames fats individuals. Watching the women act the sufferer bc Silky stated “skinny bitches” whereas dismissing the very actual struggles of being a plus measurement woman? #DragRace pic.twitter.com/J0VcvPU9JZ

— Sam (@sammyw63) March eight, 2019

When Silky identified that no plus-sized woman had ever gained Drag Race, the duo shrieked concerning the success tales of Latrice Royale (famously dangerous at Drag Race), Ginger Minj (famously meh at Drag Race), and Eureka O’Hara (well-known for being hated on Drag Race).

Then there was the INJUSTICE that meant Silky might name them “skinny b****es,” but when they referred to as her a “fats b***h,” they might “have all of America throwing stones at me.”

Silky rightly shuts down their BS by saying that really, no, she wouldn’t have an issue with it. And that “fats b***h” is “a method of empowerment” in society in the place, to cite one Twitter consumer, “the reply to all of your woes is reducing weight.”

So yeah… about that fats woman speak in Untucked. @Honey_Davenport @RaJahOHara @A_doubleC_D @GanacheSilky @NinaWest #dragrace #rupaulsdragrace #Untucked pic.twitter.com/OF8dp71yhE

We additionally had an necessary second with the challenges Mercedes Imam Diamond has confronted—together with being on the no-fly listing.

Yvie finishes the phase by despairing, “I can’t consider we now have somebody in workplace who prevents tradition from coming on this place.”

Keep in mind the Time

*Scarlet on the runway*

Judges: “Bubbles. In honour of Michael Jackson.”

Umm… was this the proper week to honour MJ? Ought to we—perhaps—have left that out?

Drag Race Season 11 Episode 2: Let’s get these queens in line

Which queen is probably the most thrilling? What is going to their edit be? 

There’s some critically robust sisters this season. However there’s additionally extra filler than Kylie can flog in a month.

There’s a gaping distinction between the facility tops and soggy bottoms, and it seems like this season will solely warmth up as soon as the latter falls out.

Energy tops

Vanessa Vanjie Mateo

Edit: Fan-favourite that loses out on a prime place (Miz Cracker).

Now’s the dawning of Vanjie. She’s trend (one of the best runways two weeks in a row), quotable (“pressed like a Panini”—I imply come on), and excelled within the problem because the discombobulating dorky dad.

Silky Nutmeg Ganache

Edit: The one which exhibits progress (Naomi).

I do know it’s—understandably—taking y’all some time to heat to her, however I feel it’ll occur. Sure, she’s coming off extra Eureka than Monique, however you must admit the self-fulfilling prophecy of Silky taking over all of the airtime as a result of the opposite queens are complaining she’s taking over all of the airtime is fairly enjoyable to observe.

Yvie Oddly

Edit: The gifted oddball (Sharon, Jinx, Alaska).

Yvie Oddly shows off her taurus look on Drag Race. It’s a great signal for Yvie Oddly’s star on Drag Race’s second episode. (Netflix)

Herstory favours the queens that sail by means of an appearing problem, as a result of making Ross, Michelle et al., chuckle is a vital step in the direction of that crown.

She additionally understands the various sides she wants to point out to get a profitable edit. She’s given us freaky outsider, weak and apologetic, sassy and gifted—and it’s solely the second week!

Plastique Tiara

Edit: Excessive-fashion, runner-up fish (Courtney).

Plastique is aware of that nothing makes Ru snort more durable than selling borderline-racist stereotypes from your personal tradition. Common runway although.

Shuga Cain

Edit: Black Horse (Valentina).

She had all the most effective strains, and she or he channelled the problem with these Thorgy/Rachel Dolezal dreads.

Mercedes Iman Diamond

Edit: The weak hyperlink (Khloe Karbdashion).

Good lip-sync, and her story appeared like real rationalization somewhat than a last-ditch try and get some limelight.

RuPaul, nevertheless, appears fairly over giving recommendation now,

“Don’t..*shrugs* let your saboteur..do the factor…that…you understand, you’re nice, Miss Bentley.”

Scarlet Envy

Edit: The much less gifted oddball (Dusty).

She did properly however I discover it exhausting to care.

Brook Lynn Heights

Edit: All there on paper however not the winner (Detox).

Yep. Detox vibes.

Ra’Jah O’Hara

Edit: Villain-lite (Milk).

Weirdly aggressive in the direction of Yvie for no cause. OK hun, take pleasure in that edit.

Ariel Versace

Edit: Villain (PhiPhi).

Her gown was meh, her efficiency meh, however in equity her half was meh too.

Honey Davenport

Edit: Confused villain-lite (Bebe).

Low-rent Bebe, anybody?

A’keria Chanel Davenport

Edit: Center of the street pageant (Alexis Machelle).

I’m uninterested in writing b****ey issues so I’ll simply say that her identify is a play on ‘I carry a Chanel.’

Nina West

Edit: MISSING (Willam since Season four).

The place was she? Drag Race must cease telling us Nina is sweet and present us as an alternative.

Kahanna Montrese

You actually weren’t the worst within the problem, however you have been accomplished soiled by a horrible half—and that wig.

You had potential to appeal like a Chi-Chi and seduce like a Pearl. However alas, it’s again to Coco with you.
