And let's get to the inevitable disappointing 2nd episode.
I’m waiting for eastenders to finish. Start your engines!
Dead on 8 for me too
Here too bitches!
The fucking STATE of the Brit Crew. It's like a SHIT Triga film
This is just the US show word for word, isn’t it?
Pauline Quirke Acting School
I quite like Sum Ting Wong
This is already so much better than the first episode. But what a mean thing to do to poor Vivienne.
I loved (the awful looking) Cheryl’s reaction ”So I’ve gotta bring myself now!”
Also, RuPaul not getting the language/lingo is my favourite thing (as I can relate).
Hmm... this isn’t looking good for Sum Ting or Blu so far...
Christ it’s hard to tell who was the shittest out of that - Baga, Davina, The Vivienne and Vinegar are safe but the rest are all gonna have to rely on their runway...
Actually, I’m getting into cute little Blu.
The scripts for the acting challenges are as dreadful and unfunny as ever
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA my beef curtains
Sum Ting dodged a bullet there...
Eurgh fucking Twiggy
OMG THE WEIRDEST THING! At the start of the episode, just as the titles were beginning, I thought, god, I hope isn't another shit lip-sync and they do a classic. Oooh, I wonder if they'll do Bananarama at some point cause it's British. OOOH, probably VENUS.
I AM FUCKING PSYCHIC
Shame it was wasted on those two and was a fairly shite lip sync then
I don't think Sum Ting was that bad at all in the challenge. The weakest of her group, absolutely, but Scaredy, Blu, Cheryl were all a lot worse and the Canadian whose name escapes me only had the one good moment, which Sum Ting matched with her opening line.
Scaredy Kat was beginning to annoy me, so quite glad she's gone.
So far, The Vivienne and Baga are WAY out front for me.
I’m starting to develop a strong dislike of The Vivienne and that TAPE business
DIVINA FTW (subject to variation obviously)
I think the right person went though. I did say last week that I think she’d come apart when it came to the performing and that lip sync was just amateur. Shame - she seems like a nice queen but it was just way too early for her to enter this. I do wonder how she ever even managed to make the shortlist when there are tons of more successful and talented queens who autioned.
This for me as well. Those two are way ahead, and Smelly Cat was getting unbearable.
I take this back. She was horrible in the lip sync, it was so uncomfortable to watch.
I love how Vivienne actually predicted the almost exact ranking order of the challenge.
They're really setting up Baga as the British Vangie aren't they - it seems like she gets the most talking heads.
Though I must say "Who put 50p in Cheryl?" was THE line of the EPISODE!
They're setting up The Vivienne as a bit of a villain aren't they?
Also, both lip syncs have been pretty shit. I’m really not surprised that we’re not doing so amazing in the lip syncs. I’ve don't think I have ever seen a drag act in the UK where most of the stuff wasn’t sung. It’s just the culture: we do live singing.
New Rules was a shit song, but Vinegar's performance was fine considering.
Venus was BEGGING for some stunts, though. Seems an opportunity missed.
So Charlie Hydes was right?
Blu was the best so far.
Not sure it takes that much setting up. Anyone who looks that much like Christopher Maloney is going to be a worry. Bet she’s the first to call someone a cunt
Yes loved that reference
Right one went, think Blu has more to give looks wise.
Divina was fab but loving Bagga wayyyy more than expected
Whatchu smoking, sis? 95% of the drag in Manchester is lipped
Agreed. I actually thought Scaredy Kat was marginally better in the lip sync than Blu tbh. Yeah she didn't try and do shit acrobatics, like Blu did, but I was much more drawn to her facial expressions etc. However I was glad to see Scaredy go though. Shit name, annoying talking heads.
'Who put 50p in Cheryl' was definitely the line of the episode.
And when it was swiftly followed up by that strange bit where Sum Ting draped a fur boa around Blu to console her, I was crying.
I thought Vinegar was really quite shit at acting considering she's effectively a professional actor.
Oh and Baga absolutely destroyed the competition that episode. She was channeling Julie Walters in Two Soups or Acorn Antiques and it really worked.
