Another week, a new episode, and another justice campaign for the eliminated queen….#Cherylhole. Alas, Cheryl was doused in love last week and ended up pole dancing with Adele at London’s G-A-Y the next day, so I think she’s handling it well. The queens gather to discuss last week’s elimination and oh boy….are you sat down? Jimbo reveals had he won he would have sent Jujubee home. oh wow everyone is plucked at his decision. I for one really wish Jimbo won both lipsync’s I would be writing this with both my faves in the competition.
But Jimbo has ruffled feathers and is here to create TV gold, everyone’s mood has shifted to suspicion and future decision-making. I love it, Jimbo has no reason to be loyal to anyone, and although he supposedly made a pact with Jujubee nothing was set in stone. So with that said let’s get the episode started.
It’s that time already, glasses at the ready as ‘Reading is fundamental’ we all know Blu Hydrangea would do well, being the playful shady queen. But once again Jujubee proves she’s a pro winning her fourth reading challenge.
This week’s challenge is all about the West End Wendy’s, Jujubee gets the chance to assign roles. Jujubee allows everyone to pick who they want, and this is where a fire is lit. Baga Chipz protests against the role she’s left with, thus insisting she plays Liza Minelli as performs in her act. The world is your stage as they say, so the queens allow Baga to audition and of course, the editing makes her look anything less than Liza. Leaving her with the one remaining role, getting all worked up about how she doesn’t want to play a hippie vegan. This is the perfect opportunity for her to show that she can smash any role, but instead spends all the time talking about how the others ‘Boil her piss’
I’m so happy to see the wonderful Johannes Radebe choreograph the musical, he is so talented, lovely, and charismatic. He assigns the routines to each queen, no one seems to be struggling until Jimbo mentions his neck injury. Each week it seems to be some form of injury cropping up, and the fear strikes the viewer.
The musical itself was fun, Pangina Heels stole the show, Blu and Janey Jacke rounded off my top three. I don’t think there were any real duds amongst the group, although Jimbo clearly had some struggles.
Let’s go dotty for this week’s runway: Dots, Dots, and Dots. As a pink enthusiast, I really loved Baga’s outfit, Pink is the way to win me over. Alongside Baga, the best runway was Mo Heart, Pangina, and Blu once again is overlooked and declared safe.
The top two are Pangina and Janey, deliberation in the werkroom clearly suggests both the queens have made up their minds. The lipstick drama with Jimbo has come back to bite him in the bum. Baga apologizes for her earlier tantrum, which I respect it’s nice to see her being open and honest. We get a 90’s throwback lipsync number in the shape of Vengaboys “We Like To Party” and Pangina strikes again sending home another Canadian queen… Jimbo. I think I’m the curse of the season, the three queens I was rooting for have gone home. However, Jimbo leaves what will be one of the most Regina George mirror messages see below. So this season isn’t exactly shaping up to how I would want it to go, however it is certainly bringing the drama!
So are you happy with this week’s elimination?
