RuPaul's Drag Race s10e05The Bossy Rossy Show19 April 2018

I'm going to be VERY late with my recap blog post of RPDRs10e5, The Bossy Rossy Show.   I assume it will be posted Sunday the 22nd, or Monday the 23rd.  No fear, it just means I'm going on a mini-vacation for a few days.   And, that is not a euphemism for a hospital stay!  It's a real vacation in another state!  Woo-hoo!

Swimming 50 15 April 2018

I walked 50 laps in the pool yesterday.   It felt wonderful to be back in the water.  Let's see if I ever do it again.   XD

RuPaul's Drag Race s10e04The Last Ball On Earth12 April 2018

Last time on RPDR the queens filmed commercials for new apps.

Asia O’Hara easily won the challenge.

Mayhem Miller escaped elimination.

Yuhua Hamasaki, sadly, did not.

Back in the work room, after Yuhua’s elimination, Mayhem Miller is taken to task for complaining about her role in the past challenge.  Mayhem hides behind the ‘y’all talk too much’ line.

Monét X Change is still living for her sponge dress from episode one.   Ha!   Well, everybody needs something to hang their hat on.

There’s a mini-challenge!  

They pose for photo-bombing.

Each gets a different photo, though.

Have a favorite?

Surely you do.

Aquaria wins the challenge.

Sean Morales shows up to plug some Postmates. 

Y’all missed him, huh?

The maxi challenge is the 3 look ball!   Yes, usually this is much later in the season, when they whittle down the people from 5 to 4.   The theme is climate change.

“About time.”

They must serve a hot look in Alaska, a cold look in Florida, and Martian eleganza (as opposed to Martian realness?)

On the Ru-thru we learn that Asia and Eureka have no family connection (both use the last name O’Hara.)  Asia is quite the working seamster/seamstress.  So, how will she do making her own looks?

Ru remarks that she has heard about Aquaria being a big deal in NYC for years, and she’s only 21.  Aquaria tries to repeat a joke, and she stumbles.   Ha!

The Vixen starts a fight with RuPaul.   Well, no, but doesn’t that seem to be her story this season?  Not much is shown as to what wisdom Ru imparts to her.

Blair St. Clair wants to do a ‘60s glam mod look meets the future.  Ru observes that BSC comes off too young and innocent to be a down & dirty queen. 

Ru clocks Monét X Change for always going with small, underwhelming wigs.   MXC states she is waiting for the right moment to wear big hair.  Ru is amazed that her show wouldn’t be the right moment.  Ha!

While getting ready for the runway Asia shares that her parents are gone.   Miz Cracker asks why Aquaria is accused of having a sugar daddy.

“A what?”

Monét X Change thinks that American English accents came first and British English accents came 2nd.  Ha!   Her History and English teachers were paid way too much, even if they volunteered.

Okay, with Ru's look at the runway, all I can think of is Daffy's love interest, the one that looks like Amanda Lapore.  I guess that would mean that Amanda Lapore looks like Daffy's girl.

Joining Ru at the judging table:  Michelle Visage, Ross Mathews, Logan Browning and Tisha Campbell-Martin.

Mayhem Miller

Eureka O’Hara

Monét X Change

Kameron Michaels

The Vixen


Dusty Ray Bottoms

Monique Heart

Blair St. Clair

Asia O’Hara

Miz Cracker

Ru calls out Mayhem Miller, Eureka O’Hara, The Vixen, Monique Heart and Blair St. Clair as middle safe.

They go to the Untucked room to nap.   

Or, rather, for The Vixen to fight with Eureka.   Geez, The Vixen is doing her level best to be the angriest black man ever, huh?

"Don't underestimate me, I got this!"

Monét’s 1st and 3rd looks are anemic, poorly constructed.

Kameron’s looks are praised.

Aquaira’s runway looks are the hit of the evening.

Dusty missed on 2 of the three looks.

Asia comes off too basic all the way around.   She regrets giving so much time and effort to the others, at the expense of delivering a decent product herself.  She cries gallons.

RUPAUL: How  many queens did you help?

EVERYBODY ELSE:   Everybody.

CLEVELAND:  Everybody! Everybody!

The judges are beaming over Miz Cracker’s successful runway looks.

Aquaria wins the challenge!

Miz Cracker is safe.

So is Kameron Michaels.

Dusty Ray Bottoms & Monét X Change are the bottom dwellers.  

That means Asia O’Hara is safe.

DRB & MXC lip synch to Nikki Minaj’s “Pound The Alarm.”

Both do well, but clearly Monét is more animated.

Ru keeps Monét, and sends Dusty Ray packing.

Saw it coming a mile away, yes?

Tune in next week for the Bossy Rossy Show?   Looks like a sanitized version of Jerry Springer.

Yeah, but do they have the big fan?

At least Ross will give us some tongue.
