Well either part or all of the episode has leaked.
3 minutes of the challenge:
Any sign of the rest?
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS HAPPENING WITH STACY LANE MATTHEWS AGAIN?
Is this online?
It’s on some instagram account called Jakeyonce apparently
Probs just trying to steal your details and use them at Al and Chuck gay travel
Well that's no fucking good.
He does YouTube videos as well. When I looked yesterday he only had the clip which leaked before the broadcast of E04, from which he managed to work out that Latrice had gone.
First 8 minutes
Well that was confusing.
The goopery was in full swing this episode.
Sorry, but that ending was ALL KINDS OF FABULOUS. I like the way it TREBLE twisted me- I did foresee a "double win", to be honest, and 100% after Manila's name was called, but that made me instantly think "Oh well, we're not having a queen back then if they're keeping everyone here", I didn't foresee "no one is going home". The Queen ru-veal was well handled (if obviously stage managed and not the ludicrous shock it was in AS2).
The roast, well, less so. The right two were there- but Monet deserved the win both in terms of the roast AND the lipsync. That has thrown the cat amongst the pigeons for me, though- Monet was a clear winner here and I thought she was easily the next home. What's interesting is it wasn't just the challenge- her runway was STUNNING and I also really liked last week's too. I was incensed at the Monet being in the bottom compared to the absolute disaster of the other three, but made sense in the end.
Oh and VILLANTINA
On this week's challenge/runway alone:
Oh and I did like Valentina's sliding off the chair I do think she is my favourite of the talking heads, but Monique was right up there on that front this week. And I loved her "YOU DON'T HAVE TO ASK ME TWICE".
Yes, as much as Monet is my least favourite now (well, excluding the returning queens), that challenge was hers fair and square. What a weak roast on the whole, though.
Alaska said on the last Race Chaser episode that there are only 8 episodes, so I'm interested to see where they go with this considering we don't know which queen (if any) is returning yet.
isn't cecily strong absolutely wonderful? i love her so much.
as for the episode, oh the drama. weak roast, strong runway, nice twist.
i wonder who picked whom to leave. i'd say manilla picked trinity and monet picked valentina.
monet was definitely the winner of the lipsync.
Very disappointing Roast. Latrice would have killed it.
I have no idea who I would sent home. Probably Monique, because of them all, I do not see her as a winner.
Yeah, I'm not exactly sure either.
Anyway, weak roast like you all said. The top 2 was the right one, and the only possible one to be frank. Bunny's own segment was probably the funniest part of the roast for me.
If we had to lose someone this week, it's would've easily been Naomi for me. She hasn't been horrible alright, but she's just been... there, the whole time.
I think the evidence has to point away from Latrice slaying it, surely?
I mean of course theoretically. But she disappointed in other challenges where we might have thought she would excel.
I've seen a surprising number of online articles and posts claiming Naomi is being slept on. I don't necessarily agree, but she needs to up her game right now as the momentum is only going one way.
I don't get the Stacy Lane Matthews joke, why is she in every episode?
It's just the most BIZARRE thing. Did she sue Rupaul for using 'henny' or something and this is how they've settled it?
I can't wait for all the Madame LaQueer features in AS5.
Latrice is good at bringing the jokes - she is not good at comedy and acting. Even her famous, 'get those nuts' line was something she had to repeat a million times to get right. She won the reading challenge in her original season and this one, I would have been much more interested in her sticking around. And I think in All Star seasons, I would really love for them to dispense with eliminations and just have some sort of points based system towards victory. The tops and bottoms change so dramatically from week to week, and many of the queens are so loved, it would just be nice to see everyone a little bit more.
Returning queens? Really? They looked like a load of old shit standing there. Don’t need any of them back in the race tbh, least of all Latrice, she was the only one I actually had high expectations of.
Good twist though, crap roast. Without the tomfoolery, I guess it would’ve been Naomi and Trinity in the bottom? Sad, I was waiting for a Naomi breakthrough that didn’t come. Trinity’s not THAT good at comedy is she? I thought she was kind of crap last week.
I think overall my tops haven’t changed, Monique is certainly hitting above her weight but it’s so erratic. The total opposite of Naomi... Monet is probably the weakest link, or WAS until this week. Her attitude seems a lot less congenial this season...
I was hoping for the Manila, Trin, Val and Naomi song at the end but I can’t see that happening.
Any theories on this twist then? I guess the returning queens are going to decide who’s going to lipsync for their lives next week?
While Miz Cracker’s Review with a Jew showed that she can be pretty good if she finally CAN produce herself, Monet Exposé is rather grim.
Just several minutes of just “No girl, that’s not what happened, I was right, everyone’s shady etc”. Like Monet Excusé
Or Monet Declassé
Did the preview for next week show all the queens taking a lipstick or just Latrice?
I saw a suggestion that the 'lipsync for your life, life, life, life' Ru quote could refer to four lipsyncs between the bottom four and the four returning queens which I found quite intriguing.
And then perhaps with Monet and Manila deciding the winner of each battle? Hmm...
And another few theories here:
Interesting, but I can’t imagine any of the bottom 4 losing against the queens who have already gone, except MAYBE against Latrice (probably giving too much credit) and Gia.
That would explain the shot of the eliminated queens picking from one big box, they’d be picking their partners.
Totally here for Latrice vs Manila though haha
I do think the four lifes could well refer to four lipsyncs. And the fact that excluding the winning two there are four pairs it's all very neat. The fact that the win was shared by Monet and Manila and they haven't yet had to make a decision also makes me think that there is yet something to happen there.
I loved that episode. Yes the Roast wasn't that strong, but the car crashes of Naomi, Valentina and Trinity were entertaining. I really felt for Monique being lumped in with that group in the bottoms, as she outperformed them by an absolute mile.
Monet had the best performance AND lipsync. Absolutely deserved the win. I didn't call any of the twists at all - which is totally rare for me in reality tv. I feel like I can normally see it all coming, but this time, didn't have a clue what was going to happen.
The problem with the returning queens is that the only one that is even close to the top 6 is Latrice and she fucked me RIGHT OFF in episode 4 so I don't want her back. But more Gia is always fun
I really don't get Trinity and I find her mouth disturbing. Naomi I like more than Trinity, but realistically she is by far the weakest queen.
On the basis of this week alone:
In what world is Valentina second? Or do you mean how much you like her?
For the perfect thing about that ending, you only have to look at this thread and everyone SPECULATIN' about what's coming next
'You don't have to ask me twice' was my favourite momentof the episode too. All the queens are so much better when they're not scripted generally
