Canada's Drag Race

After last week’s elimination and we say goodbye to Chelazon Leroux, it’s Miss Fiercelious’s turn to wipe away the mirror message and wipes the mirror like she’s never cleaned a surface in her life. On the couch, they gather to talk about the highs and lows of their lipsync tag teams. 

It’s a new day in the werkroom and let’s gather for a mini chat and the lessons everyone has learned thus far. Oh boy, we are all Giselle Lullaby at this moment with those facial expressions. The queen knows how to work the camera, Miss F confronts Jada Shada Hudson and her lack of communication and friendship, which takes Jada back. The teeny tiny drama is squashed so let’s begin this week’s challenge!

The mini challenge is to get into quick girl boss (I hate that phrase) and talk as a keynote speaker for Tuck Talks. Now, many can succeed at this as a lot are quick-witted and have very colorful personalities I’m sure we all had an idea who would succeed. Welcome to Tuck Talks, a place to tell raw, emotional, personal (but make it funny) stories for the audience. Testing their improv skills, Vivian Vanderpuss, and Giselle Lullaby killed it for me. Jada wins and is gifted the chance to pick a box for this week’s design challenge. 

It’s that time of the season when we take a deep dive into some special boxes to test the queens and their creative skills. Not only does Jada choose her box but everyone else, starting with Kaos who receives spooky, Giselle gets Crusty, Kimmy Couture gets quirky, Bombae old-fashioned, Irma Gerd sporty, Lady Boom Boom gets crafty, Jada Fiery, Vivian gets basic and Miss F with flirty. 

I do love a design challenge and I love to see a struggling journey, and I got just that. The plot twist is each box contains the same fabric they are to create a look based on the theme of the box. Lady boom boom becomes a fashion consultant to Miss F, as collective ideas are thrown about so who knows what will end up on the runway. 

This week’s special guest has me screaming (yes figuratively speaking) that it’s Jimbo the icon from Canada’s Drag race S1 and on UK vs the world (I’m still bitter) and joining him is gorgeous Sarain Fox. Perfect pair for a challenge and runway such as this, Bombae struts first every inch a sparkly superhero. Vivian’s face is so gorgeously painted, along with that wig and I love the construction. Considering how design challenges go theres’ are no real car crash casualties, Lady Boom Boom and Irma Gerd have similar silhouettes yet tell completely different stories. 

Did someone order some drama? Brooklyn asks who the queens want to send home tonight, although they all gasp in shock, they’re pretty quick to say who they think and why. Kaos and Jada both get mentioned, untucked makes for an awkward atmosphere. Tensions between pretty much everyone are heated and arsing. 

It’s time for deliberation and a side note how stunning did Brooklyn look this week? A well-deserved win goes to my queen Giselle and is this curse of the clowns? After Miss F saw herself at the bottom in her clown paint, Irma Gerd faces the same predicament, however, is spared the lipsync leaving Jada Shada and Kaos to battle it out. This week’s song is “Stranger In My House (Thunderpuss radio mix)” by Tamia, another song I’m not familiar with am I that out of touch? Both queens fight from the start, and just as I thought Jada would commit the infamous wig removal, there’s another underneath. Jada had a slight edge with her acrobatic routine and is safe for another week, leaving Kaos to say their goodbyes.
