Episode Two: Glamazonian Airways
Welcome back everyone to another edition of “Talking Drag Race with Chiffon Dior”. I’m your host Chiffon Dior, joined as always by my co-host, a half eaten pint of Haagen Dazs. And by half eaten, I mean empty. So picking up from where we left off last week, Kandy Ho is cleaning off Tempest DuJour‘s mirror message and modestly states that she knew she would win. Charming gal.
Then Violet Chachki decided, “Hey, why don’t I infuriate 99.9% of the Drag Race fans by saying how much I hate Michelle Visage? That sounds like a great idea!” Spoiler alert: Not a great idea as the internet erupted with the hashtag #IhateMichelleVisage.
The funny thing is, if Violet had said she hated Santino, she would have been America’s sweetheart. But for all the drama, I wonder what Michelle really thought of it…
There was no rest for the wicked however as it was quickly on to the mini challenge…..that was um…..this…..
….which was basically just an excuse to make a bunch of zany one-liners about being “blown”. Oh, and Moby was there for some reason. Here’s a thought guys, maybe coming up ideas for the mini challenges shouldn’t be done after half a bottle of Fireball and a tray of pot brownies (medical of course).
So based on some criteria I’m sure, Ginger Minj and Trixie Mattel won the mini challenge, but if we’re being honest, weren’t we all winners for getting to see that bit of television history? As a reward for winning, Ginger and Trixie get to pick teams for the Glamazonian Airlines main challenge. Violet is picked second to last and is none to happy about it, nor was I. I’m sure the gym class flashbacks will start up again now. So Ginger selects a team that if it was any more diverse, it would have legally been required to be a Benneton ad while if Trixie’s team was any more white, it would have just lost it’s fraternity charter in Oklahoma.
It’s off to dance rehearsal for our heroines and uh oh, Miss Fame isn’t exactly classically trained ballerina. In fact, she’s not even Jason Sudekis in the What Up With That skit on Saturday Night Live.
Meanwhile Jaidynn Diore Fierce used an old knee injury as an excuse for struggling with choreography all the while saying she’s not the kinda gal to make excuses. I see what you did there gurl!
Back in the work room, Miss Fame open up and the tears started to flow as she talk about her mother’s struggles with drugs, how she was raised by her grandparents and how her grandfather was murdered. No one liners here, just all the hugs you need gurl.
The ladies proceed to beat their mugs and head out on to the main stage for the Glamazonian Airlines numbers. Trixie’s group went first and put on a great show except for Katya struggling with a long monologue in the beginning. That’s not good.
Meanwhile, Ginger Minj’s culturally diverse squad really delivered with Mrs. Kasha Davis standing out in a big way, mugging for the camera like there was no tomorrow and Ginger herself didn’t disappoint either.
They must have been pressed for time because of this jammed packed episode (and not from the seventeen commercial breaks. Seriously stop trying to make the cucumber and banana show happen. It’s not going to happen Logo.), so the Jet Set Eleganza runway looks seemed very brief. They questioned Sasha Belle‘s look, as well as Ginger’s but in spite of that, Ginger won the challenge. Sasha and Katya were the….ahem…two bottoms and were forced to lip synch to “Twist of Fate” by Olivia Newton John who ironically happened to be right there as a guest judge. Funny how that works. Katya remains a gold mine of quotes.
“I definitely need to make a statement so I just try to pound my vagina into that stage so hard that the building shakes.” – Katya
Well, she didn’t lie because that is exactly what she did and Sasha Belle was forced to sashay away.
One random thought from this episode, was Pearl cast on the show simply on the basis of her incredible ability to roll her eyes? If she rolls them any harder, bitch is gonna see brain!
Be sure to vote in our poll for who you think will win this season. Last week a full 25% of you picked Miss Fame to win, followed by Katya and Pearl. Who moved the needle this week? Also if you’re on the east coast be sure to join us each week immediately after the show in the NotSafe4Werk Post Race Show to chat with other Drag Race fans about what just went down on the main stage! Plus, be sure to check out the debut of ELIMINATION TRANSFORMATION with Jamie-Lynn as she transforms into Tempest DuJour right here. Until next week, remember to have your drag queens neutered and spayed.
