    Compared to Monday morning (around four and a half days ago). Excited for the next episode!
    Jujubee increased by even more followers through this week than in the previous update. I really, really hope she does well in the remaining challenges, because I would love her as a winner the most at this point.

    Only 8? That seems short. The last two I think had 10 Eps!

    How many episodes to go? I’m sure we’ll have a returning queen episode?

    Ok, so Blair will drop her second album "Identity" and Juju her second EP "Good Juju" on the 21st July. Blair will be featured on Juju's EP as well. Love that!

    Also, is it just me or is Blair like the Naomi of this season, except that Naomi at least had a win and Blair hasn't (so far).

    ...and, last but not least, Bebe Rexha will be the guest judge this week!!

    Really looking forward to this weeks episode - finally a sewing challenge!

    Going by track record, Alexis or Blair would be the next to go. But Blair is a runway queen, so she may do well in a sewing challenge... Same for Cracker and Shea, who both already put on some strong runways.

    I‘m actually really happy with that Top5. A shame it‘s not the same format with a Top2 each week. Going by that, Alexis and Blair would have had some wins as well.

    ^ Ok, I give Shea that. Her doing Flava Flav was way more different, probably more difficult and more spot on than Juju doing Eartha Kitt, where we could argue that Juju herself would've delivered some similar one liners without being in that character, while Shea was 100% Flava.

    Yeah, the words "real" and "robbed" are often used in Drag Race fandom, but they can read as dismissive to other queens.

    I actually agree that Juju had funnier jokes than Shea. It was like Bianca/Ben in S6 where I think Bianca had the funnier one-liners, but Ben was also a worthy winner and probably got the challenge win for nailing the look and impersonation better than Bianca did. I guess it comes down to what people value overall. Juju came with the zingers, but Shea was also funny and knocked the look out of the park as well. And Flava Flav is a pretty big character to take on as well.

    I guess when it's a fairly close call, "real" and "robbed" are strange terms to use.

    Juju’s thermostat line was one of my favourites from Snatch Game ever! Hilarious!

    I actually hate that only one queen lipsyncs in each episode. We only had four queens lipsyncing so far (India, Shea, Juju, Cracker). Would have loved to see (way) more of them lipsyncing...

    I was also surprised at Shea’s win and thought Juju was the best. Shea/Alexis was a toss up for 2nd for me

    The whole cast being in the bottom twist was sort of trash really. Loved the India/Alexis drama which was entertaining

    I was a bit over seeing Vanjie again. I mean she’s being overexposed now. And girl losing to Kalorie Karbdashian in the first lip sync of a season does not an assassin make.

Who are you to tell anyone what does or doesn’t start? I’m just curious. Lol.

    Thank you.

    For me personally, Juju was simply the best, had way more jokes than Shea (or others), played more with the questions, was spontaneous and I laughed way more at her (and thought everyone was laughing more at her, I was actually surprise she wasn‘t picked). And while I thought Shea‘s runway was great, Juju worked better for the theme IMO.

    Thanks for the update but why discredit Shea's win. I can get you may not have found it funny but I think it was a lot more than just 'she did the best impersonation'. It was out of the box, accurate to Flav and a massive risk. Let's not forget, Flavor of love and shows at that time are one of the cornerstones of reality television, especially for the black community. Juju was phenomenal as Eartha Kitt, it was a masterclass but we have seen it before on Drag Race on Snatch game. She could have literally studied previous iterations to work out what to do and not to do. I think it's a shady reach to call her 'probably the real winner'. Like Shea didn't deserve it.

    Yeah, the Snatch Game Of Love was actually good, mostly thanks to Alexis, Juju and Shea. They all slayed their performances! Blair wasn't that bad IMO but she just stood no chance against Juju / Shea in her team.

    Runway was good, but I feel like the themes are all overall pretty basic this season. I wish there would be a sewing challenge, because there are too many comedy based group challenges at this point.

    India going was clear from the get go. No idea what to think of this story, but it was good television so I'm fine with that.
    Blair and Alexis NEED to win something as soon as possible, otherwise they'll be gone soon. Blair started to fade even more into the background lately. She started being high for some challenges but now she's been bottom or near bottom two times in a row.

    With that said, Alexis and Juju both didn't deserve to be in the bottom at all. That twist is just complete bullsh*t IMO. Also, Juju was better in the Snatch Game than Shea and while I loved Shea's runway, she missed the theme for me personally.

    Is it just me or is there no clear frontrunner so far? Yes, Shea and Juju are clearly doing the best and Cracker also won something, but they all still don't stand out that much to me like Manila or Alaska did for example. I think producers saw Cracker as a winner while fans were cleary team Shea, but I wouldn't mind if Juju snatches the crown because let's be honest, this season would be dead without her.

    I really liked yesterday’s episode. Juju, Alexis & Shea were the best ones clearly. Blair was the worst to me but her runway look did really save her, that was really well done.

    However, Cracker doing Gaga was A HUGE fail. I mean she looked like she always does. There was nothing Gaga about it. Really, I am wondering what she’s still doing there because I really haven’t seen any progression and she’s really weak the entire season.

    Juju’s outfit was stunning. Maybe she should’ve won the episode but Shea was amazing too. Good episode with many strong moments.

    Concerning India’s story, I don’t know what to believe I just thought it was weird that she mentioned that when she was in the bottom again.

    Juju is just amazing. I'm an even bigger fan now. The whole alexis thing, I don't know what to believe. It seemed like a stunt to try and save herself (India). I want to believe Alexis because I love her but I dunno. Has Meh-hem said anything about it yet?

    Derrick of course posted about it showing he's clearly team alexis.

    It was a good snatch game mostly. Alexis, jujube and Shea where the clear tops. I actually would have preferred an Alexis or Juju win. Shea wasn't THAT amazing.

    This is more manufactured for Shea to win than it was for Alaska to win AS2 let's be real

    Juju for me is owning this season. I really hope she gets the crown (unlikely)

    I actually didn't mind that. It was a continuation of their 'story' from AS3 and Jeffrey is so beautiful, I can't be too opposed to anything that gives him extra screentime.

    I have no idea why Shea didn't do AS4. I suspect she might have regretted waiting for AS5.

    Better brace yourself because I can see the show doing it!

    Yeah, I thought about that. He'll probably do his own top/high/safe/low ranking based on critiques, though.

    Really? I think Blair only semi-impressed me once thus far, and that was the three-in-one look.

    Shea was the clear winner for me. Her SG was hilarious. Juju close second. Both are one of the best SG performances ever. Alexis high. BSC low. Cracker and India bottom. That said, Shea’s runway was a bit strange. She’s giving good runways but I don’t think it’s on the level of S9. I guess BSC has my fave runways this season so far.

    I’m gonna be honest, the India/Alexis drama freaked me out, I would’ve been mad if Alexis went home. Nobody knows what was actually going on, but it was India’s time. India Top 5 would’ve made me more mad than Roxxxy Top 4.

    This was one of the better episodes and I actually think the concept worked for me this year, while it was meh last year.

    Jujubee has skyrocketed into my top 3. She’s just SO hilarious.

    So we need Mayhem to spill the tee and tell us the truth from this episode ASAP.

    Also Ru defo had a cocktail before the runway - he was living... wish he was like this more.
