RuPaul’s Drag Race: Canada vs. The World “Spy Queens” (S02 E05)

Our top five still remain with no one sashaying away last week, we had a double save for Rajah O Hara and Vanity Milan. A wise choice as both are so strong, back on the couches and we see who Victoria Scone and Silky Nutmeg Ganache decided to send home. Going first Victoria had picked Vanity to go home, with Silky out of respect for their mental health declining to share. It is understandable a strong sisterhood has been formed, ultimately leading to stressful decision-making. 

With a new day comes a new challenge, and this week it’s an acting challenge for this week’s main challenge. As of late, they’ve been well, let’s say the scripts are interesting. As the winner of last week’s lipsync, Victoria gets to assign roles and to be distributed fairly. The acting challenge is based on Traci Melchor taking over the world, each assassin is to protect the world from destruction. 

Each queen discusses their confidence with regard to acting challenges, Vanity is concerned due to doing badly in her season. Victoria has grown up in acting school, and drama colleges. Currently, she’s touring in the UK production of Death Drop the musical with other Drag Race alumni (Willam, Cheryl Hole, and River Medway). UK readers I recommend going, it’s hilarious. 

Rehearsal begins with Traci as director coaching the girls, Victoria shines as the reading fundamentalist making her dolphin noises. I would say the deliverance shown for each queen’s introductions is quick, with little feedback from Traci. So we never get a real feel for who’s shining, Vanity does get plenty of direction for forgetting lines, and camera work. 

A glitzy one-of-a-kind runway category is Y2Gay:2000’s Klub Kids. First out Rita Baga struts in a ballsy number. Many of these outfits seek inspiration from Leigh Bowery the ultimate London Klub kid, Victoria Scone cites him as her main source of inspiration. The runways for this season have been strong, Rajah’s headpiece did rending me of a deflated Teletubby. 

At the top once again is Victoria, whose track record is looking very strong now, and Rita Baga is joining her at the top. At the bottom for the second week in Vanity Milan, and alongside her is Silky Nutmeg Ganache. This will be her first time at the bottom, based on records she should be safe. 

Lip-syncing to “Freak” a chaotic routine ensues, Rita dominates it for me with her playful facial expressions and capturing attention. The winner for this week’s lipsync is Rita Baga. And just missing out on the final spot is Vanity Milan. Who do you want to WIN next weeks finale?
