RuPaul’s Drag Race 1507 Recap: Might I Have One other?

Lights! Digital camera! Motion! This week on Drag Race the queens had their large appearing problem. And I’m filming a brief tomorrow that I wrote and directed and am starring in so if my power is chaotic on this recap that’s why!

We start within the aftermath of Robin’s elimination. Weirdly sufficient nobody is gushing at my love Jax for having an unbelievable lip sync and as an alternative are persevering with the week’s drama.

Mistress is being Mistress (I imply this as an excellent factor) and saying her entire crew ought to have been within the prime. She then begins citing Malaysia getting upset in Untucked. Marcia appears to be like like speaking extra about that is the very last thing she needs. However Mistress doesn’t care! She’s right here to be a drag queen and make nice actuality TV.

There’s some elevated rigidity when Mistress seems like Sasha is making an attempt to show the whole lot right into a teachable second and Malaysia isn’t wanting to speak issues out. The feud will proceed into one other week…

And that new week brings the return of The Daytona Wind. Ru talks about this prefer it’s Snatch Recreation, and never a mildly humorous bit completed for the primary time final season. When you’ll recall, I didn’t even recap that episode as a result of Untucked was so good I needed to write all about that.

Everybody needs to play the character Fancy however since Aura received final week, Aura will get to present it to herself. After that the elements get assigned shortly and with no drama. Properly, besides, it seems Mistress and Malaysia are going to be scene companions.

Till the lip sync, this episode belongs to Mistress Isabella Brooks. She pauses from her Malaysia feud to play on Aura’s insecurities — or, let’s be truthful, lack of sure abilities — and recommend they swap elements when Aura begins struggling. It really works. Aura takes the smaller half and Mistress will get to shine.

This season The Daytona Wind is a sitcom and RuPaul himself is within the director chair. Spice is struggling to take a single route as a result of Spice is struggling to do something besides the very same factor she all the time does. Aura can be struggling, proving that Mistress had some extent. In the meantime, Mistress and Malaysia are each thriving — and thriving collectively.

The following day as they do their make-up, Mistress and Malaysia speak issues out. I’ve Quick and the Livid on my thoughts due to the brand new trailer, however I really like this Quick and Livid method to battle. If I’ll clarify: all through its 9 films (plus two shorts and spinoffs), the antagonists of 1 Quick film are sometimes a part of the household within the subsequent. Typically this feels absurd — however when the stakes are drag shadiness and never, you recognize, making an attempt to kill folks with automobiles, I find it irresistible! Struggle onerous, make up shortly. Who has time for grudges after we’re all a bunch of queers?

Harvey Guillen is the visitor choose and the class is Puffer Please. Loosey does a primary look with a Keep Puft twist and Spice appears to be like like a contestant on The Bachelor happening a one on one throughout a winter season. However the very best appears to be like of the night time did one thing recent with the immediate! Sasha appears to be like unbelievable in a black and yellow look that felt like one thing Rihanna would put on to carry out with Beyoncé. Aura and Anetra are additionally actually scorching. However it’s Mistress who wins certainly. She’s deconstructed a puffer jacket to focus on her physique and appears so scorching and so vogue and I simply cherished this look tons and much.

The much less mentioned about The Daytona Wind the higher. I get that chaotic modifying and fun observe assist make up for a few of the weaker actors within the forged, however the modifying methods want to really be humorous and enjoyable to observe. Most of those fell flat. I imply, Anetra is taking part in an influence lesbian and Sasha and Lux are taking part in a lesbian couple, and I nonetheless didn’t get pleasure from it! And never simply because they recognized Anetra as a lesbian by making a joke about lesbians not liking nuts. Come on!! It’s not even that jokes like this are transphobic — it’s that they’re hack!

One of the best a part of the entire thing was the very random Danny Trejo cameo on the finish. Positive, carry on Ariana Grande, no matter. However Danny Trejo? Now that’s one thing I didn’t see coming. Or the very best half was when Ru mentioned the surrealist touches had been an homage to Tim and Eric, which seems like one thing she needed to say for authorized.

Loosey, Sasha, Lux, and EsTitties are secure. Mistress, Malaysia, Anetra, and Marcia are the highest. And Spice, Aura, and Jax are within the backside. I might’ve made Marcia secure as an alternative of getting 4 tops, however in any other case I do agree with this judging. Sure, even Jax. She simply couldn’t work out her character this week!

Mistress wins — as she ought to — and Jax and Aura are lip syncing. I feel Aura’s outfit ought to’ve saved her however oh nicely. The track is “Sweetest Pie” by Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa. And oh my God, Jax does it once more. I actually thought she was going house however there was simply no strategy to ship her house!! I assumed she did an important job final week, however this was an entire new stage!

She shantays. And my guess is the producers began scrambling as a result of subsequent week is a lip sync lalaparuza and that doesn’t really feel like a coincidence.

Teleport Us to Mars!! Right here Are Some Random Ideas:

+ I couldn’t watch Untucked this week! Let me know what I missed.

+I hope Danny Trejo goes backstage throughout Untucked. Inform me Danny Trejo goes backstage throughout Untucked.

+ If you would like extra of my musings on the Quick and Livid franchise, I wrote an entire essay.

+ I’ve cherished plenty of Marcia’s runways, however I’d wish to see the judges drop the particular make-up word and extra typically push her to do extra glamor. That’s the larger difficulty so far as I’m involved, and make-up is only one a part of it. Like with Spice, it’s about wanting selection.

+ I’ve by no means watched What We Do within the Shadows so I’m not aware of Harvey Guillen, however I assumed he was a extremely good choose!

+ Queen I’m rooting for: Jax to lip sync a bunch extra after which Anetra, Mistress, or Sasha win.

+ Queen I’m horniest for: increasingly… it’s Anetra

+ Queen I wish to go house: Spice
