I just want to voice (again) the fact that I will miss Dusty a lot. Such a cutie and amazing person for having been through a lot. This season is not playing with filler queens. 4 episodes in and there are already big casualties.

Oh, and I really hope that they do Miss Vanjie thing during make-up for every single episode. It has become such a staple and it would be a shame if they didn't make it into a running gag.

Dusty is definitely a cutie out of drag and will definitely miss seeing him. However, his fashion is most of the time questionable. The momager wig on this episode is giving me nightmares!

There may not be many filler queens but it’s obvious who won’t win (Kameron, Monique, Vixen, Eureka...)

That's a completely different thing (the editing and confessionals point to possible winners). But in every previous season the real contest started about halfway through the season once the filler queens with debatable taste were sashayed away. Every remaining queen now showed either acting, comedic or fashion talent. The road ahead won't be easy for anyone I think.

I think it's between Miz Cracker, Aquaria and Asia, judging by the edit.

Anything can happen. I can't call a winner this early. Sometimes the show surprises you.

I wonder if they’ll do a Cracker vs. Aquaria lip sync in the semi final

Unfortunately for me, I already knew the winners of S3, AS1, S6, S7, AS2, S8 and S5 (through deduction) before I watched them so I haven’t had the chance to be surprised very often

Monét's lipsync may have become my favourite from the show ever. I am still shooketh.



I relate so much to the screams at 1:14-1:18

I might have watched the lipsync like a hundred times already!
That part where Monet was dancing like her life depended on it and she takes a quick look at Dusty doing a running man! :lol:

I'm really enjoying this season, the cast is strong. Most of the episodes have been interesting, the Untucked have been on fire and the lip sync has had at least one person every week absolutely killing it, Kalorie to a lesser degree but Eureka, Mayhem and Monet have turned it OUT.

This week, Aquaria deserved the win. She's not my favourite by any stretch, though she is growing on me, but she smashed it. Cracker - who IS one of my favourites - I honestly thought was closer to terrible than amazing, that merkin wig thing was diabolical.
Can't believe I've read Eureka was lucky to escape the bottom. To my mind she was unlucky not to be top 3. I think people let their opinions of her personality get in the way - apart from the obvious week two cock up I would say she's been much nearer the high end than the low end so far, though I hope for an undeniable great week,

My rankings overall ATM
01. Monique - I just love her talking heads and she's been pretty solid, there's a bit of delusion about some of her looks but her feather one was everything
02. Blair - I was not expecting to Stan but she's been solid as hell
03. Eureka
04. Cracker - but I need her to step up her performances, glimmers of greatness
05. Mayhem - I want her to repeak, I warm to her a lot
06. Asia - a rollercoaster journey, I live for her when she gets hysterical bout the sponges or the accent thing
07. Monet - her drag looks are mostly appalling but she showed star quality this week and is a very warm talking head
08. Aquaria - her personality is taking some time with me but she undoubtedly has some talent
09. Kameron - some surprisingly great looks, but not giving me much more
10. Vixen - GREAT entertainment but I am not convinced on her looks whatsoever.

Miz Cracker needs to shine soon, she's not lived up to the first episode but I liked the space outfit.

I loved the reactions when Monet mentioned the British accent thing (which apparently is true!)

Aquaria was also on The Real Housewives of New York named at a party there so that will have helped!

Shania Twain is a guest judge this week.

Let me guess, she is Eureka’s idol.

^ I cringe all the way through that video, it was such an unnecessary fight from both parts.

Anyway, I can't wait for this week's episode. I need Cracker to finally win a challenge (disclaimer: don't call it a spoiler if she does, I don't know anything sistrens)

The episode was not as good as the previous ones, IMO.
Thank God Cracker, Eureka and Monique delivered show-stopping performances. I personally would have given the win to Cracker, but I can see why they let Eureka win, she needed this more than Cracker.

The lipsync was awful, and that's unfortunate, cause Man! I Feel Like a Woman is like my #1 lipsync song. They should have both sashayed.

Meh episode. Nobody made me laugh and a lot of the episode felt fixed - from Vixen winning the mini challenge to Eureka winning the main challenge.

Monet was a hot mess in that lip sync but Mayhem deserves to go. She’s been invisible since week 1.

Not the best episode, nearly every Bossy Rossy segment fell flat. Also, this episode made me realise that denim and diamonds is a very unflattering look :lol:

Monet is hanging in by the skin of her teeth. She is likeable in the workroom and talking head, but it just doesn't seem to translate into the maxi challenges or runway. Her lip-sync was definitely entertaining, but there was a slight feel of desperation/defeat about it?

I didn't really understand what the challenge was supposed to be, what kind of talent was it supposed to show, or what was the relevance of it? The baby section was just very strange. I wanted Mayhem to stay, only because I still don't know the difference between Monet and Monique and that would've made it easier for me, but I don't understand how in season 10 a queen thinks they're gonna get through a lipsync but just dancing a bit and waving their arms in the air.

It was meant to be a mix of improv and parody, but most of the queens fell flat.

Monet and Asia’s little chat on Untucked (which lasted about 20 seconds) was so emotional and genuine. Way more than anything else I’ve seen, such as Miz Cracker’s ‘I hate myself’ Speech
