Thought this was quite good, considering
Brita's reads were excellent
I only caught a clip of the reading challenge which was pretty for anyone who didn’t see it.
Although annoying that HATEFUL BRITA was the HIGHLIGHT.
The reads were good everything else was too produced to really mean much.
The reads were great.
Ru’s lewk was terrifying.
Yeah, it was decent, all things considered.
I enjoyed it. It felt a lot more relaxed and natural than most reunion shows (despite the fact that it was obviously produced to within an inch of its life).
Brita was indeed the unlikely STAR with those reads.
I could have watched an unedited version. The French one bombing and actually shaking was certainly something.
Jan's eyes were a little off balance. At least her sound effect button was a big hit.
I would have found Ru doing his own make-up fascinating, but I guess looking like he was on a Grindr wrestling meet timeout worked in it's own way.
I liked it. Highlight was Crystal's brother's hair. Only now have I thought her make-up to be very good - I wonder if I'll see something different when I re watch the season at some point.
I loved it too. Highlights were:
- Brita’s read of Dahlia (which was also only the second indirect mention of Sherry)
- RuPaul telling Jackie she’s the winner of this week’s challenge
- Jackie mentioning Rock at Folsom
- ”El Debarge”
She’s just completely unable to put a look together on her own isn’t she?
It was decent because it worked for a reunion episode. The battles will just look sad.
I don't get what Ru was wearing and why she was wearing it. Or how it could have been let pass without either an explanation from Ru or a question from one of the girls.
Is it some known beauty mask thing to go with the slumber party theme? Or was it just there to cover up some botched surgery or for the lols.
Anyway, with the season over, and looking at all of them together, it really did feel like we're going to be having every single one of them back to the contest for AllStars. Even Dahlia Sin I wouldn't be surprised to see again in some way or another, what with the talk of her twin brother now doing drag. It might be too irresistible a thought not to have twins compete against each other for the first time.
And even with the less likable ones, Britta and Widow, their arc for this reunion was very much that they were capable of and expected to do better, but just got in their heads a little too much.
Plus, the fact that this season aired during a pandemic, so none of the girls have been able to capitalise on it with gigs etc. It definitely feels like they could each be given another shot at the show. Aside from the winner, funnily enough, of course.
she probably didn’t have anyone to put her makeup on.
And most importantly she doesn’t know how to put her makeup on her own!
She doesn’t need to
It will be interesting to see her mug for the finale.
Precisely! I wouldn't expect Kate Winslet to strut down the red carpet having done her own face in the car on the way over
It looked like a wrestling mask to me.
Either that or a Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman tribute.
But did you really want a return to THIS
I wasn't expecting Ru to be in drag for the reunion at all - he shows up to chat shows and press events and even DragCon as himself these days.
I was expecting the Ru we get in the workroom. Does that really require all that much makeup that he can't do it himself? And even if it does, couldn't he acknowledge what he's wearing? Even a Pearl quote of "do I have something on my face" after an awkward pause at the beginning of the chat would have broken the ice on that matter.
It was bizarre. Rendered even more so by not addressing it.
What in the Carly Simon is that?
Fan favourite until fracking scandal. Week 6 out.
