RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE, SEASON 12 #51
Posted: 3/21/20 at 6:45pm

Brita puts on a good show, but she's not a good queen for Drag Race. I've never thought so from the moment she was announced.

Meanwhile, I actually thought Gigi's looks were super basic. I would have given Nicky the win easily, but they're clearly creating a narrative. Also, Jaida shouldn't have been int the Top 3. That third spot should have either been Crystal or Jan (what does Jan have to do to get some love?). This is the second week in a row that I thought the judging was not good.

Also, Aidan should have been in the bottom 2 with Brita and should have gone home.

Brita is this season's Roxxxy Andrews -- the mean bitch with delusions of grandeur, fixated on one other queen for the crime of weakness.

Get ready Brita -- all Britas get filled with dirt and replaced before long.

So agree.  NYC Entertainer Of The Year?  I said last week I wouldn't spend money to see her perform.  I wouldn't go see her if it was a free show. She doesn't understand why she is not winning anything.  Uh, girl, it's because you stink. Aiden should have called her out on her spitting when she talks.  As is typical, Aiden, at least on camera, says nothing negative about the others, but every week they have something negative to say about her.  Thank goodness for Heidi.  She nailed it, when she told the others off.  Then you have a hypocrite like Nicky, who claims Aiden always makes excuses because of her lack of background.  But every episode, she makes excuses with the language barrier.  Even tonight, Ru obviously got sick of it, and cut her off, when she started making the same language excuse, again.

Of the two on the bottom, I think the right one went home. She didn’t know the words to the song and her performance just wasn’t as strong as Heidi (who I’m loving more and more each week). But I agree it should have been Brita on the bottom and again, sorry not sorry but Sherry is fantastic and I’m loving what she’s doing.

I agree with all of this

Yes, Sherry was the best in the challenge and her outfit the best.  I did find her to be funnier when they were rehearsing, than in the finished product.  Again, in Untucked, she is no where to be found.  I wish they would leave the episode as is, without the obvious editing.  I'm rooting for a Heidi win.

This is controversial, but I also wish they hadn’t edited the episodes. I’d like to see Sherry’s storyline.

It was Nicky’s time to go and I don’t understand the constant bullying of Aidan. It is Jinkx all over again. Don’t these girls learn?

I’m not sure that Aiden is on par with Jinkx, but yes it’s 100% the same BS she went through.

She’s not even half as talented as Jinkx (though her looks are much better).

True.  But I'm a sucker for an underdog.  They are truly bullying her.  Got to give credit to her, she's sticking up for herself.  Of course, I'd much rather her tell them to fuk themselves.  Sorry, GiGi, seems to be a one trick pony.  I say, she never gets close to the finals.  She's a "mean girl" also, but isn't so transparent.

Sherry was undoubtedly great this episode, and it is weird to see her succeed and not even be shown talking when she’s having an emotional moment in the workroom and then win the whole episode. But I disagree that they shouldn’t edit her out. Her entire reputation is spoiled, so let the other queens shine. I don’t think this season suffers for it. I thought Gigi and Jackie walked away from that challenge looking just as accomplished as Sherry in a lot of ways.

It was Nicky’s time to go, but I would rather she had stayed than Brita. I am OVER her. She’s the cruelty and bullying of Roxxxy Andrews meets the delusional cattiness of Alexis Michelle. Like, what is with the obsession with Aiden? Eyes on your open paper, girl.

I’m still living for Gigi (anyone else getting strong Parker Posey vibes?), and Heidi also continues to be a major highlight of every episode. Crystal is really stepping her game up. I’m just overall very excited by this season (that awful “improv” challenge aside) in a way I haven’t been about the show since probably All Stars 2.

I'm glad Aidan and Heidi went ape**** in Untucked, someone needed to give these bullying hoes a reality check.

I cannot stand Britta. I bet she won't be playing to full houses for too much longer...she is vile!

This episode was really good and Sherry delivered during the challenge and that Untucked episode was EVERYTHING! Snatch Game is this week and I'm excited.

Praying Aiden gets the boot tonight. Sick of seeing her in the same wig week after week, wearing ill-fitting uninspired looks, while hobbling along the runway like in 2 inch heels.

They are obviously gearing up for a lip sync between Brita and Aiden. Would love to see Brita sent home but I think she’ll stick around for a while, she’s getting the villain edit.

Which is so wild as I've never experienced that from Brita IRL. But, I guess someone had to get that edit.

She’s said what she’s said. Some people respond in bizarre or unexpected ways in the pressure cooker that the show is. But they can’t edit you into saying anything you didn’t say.

As an editor I can tell you that is false. I can make you say whatever I want you to say lol

She however has said most of what she's said directly to camera with no editing what so ever.

I saw that and I LOVE Coco.. but these judges read Monet every week for wearing a variety of ****cat wigs. Meanwhile Aiden wears the same one 4 out of 5 weeks. But the show has always judged the queens of color differently, so I'm not surprised Aiden gets away with it.

Not that I care much for Aiden’s wigs, but her outfits are simple enough to support a short wig. The problem with Monet was that her wigs felt in opposition to most of her outfits. Not saying Monet’s ethnicity had *nothing* to do with it, but I can at least see the difference between the two. And also that Monet was capable of the more they were asking for (obviously, since she won AS4), where Aiden is pretty limited.
