CT2NYC said: "Sherry Pie. I thought she should have been in the bottom 2 instead of Jaida, just for that."

Agreed. Bottom 2 should’ve been Sherry and Jaida.

Jaida would’ve still been ****e either way though, at least Heidi tried to do something out of her comfort zone.

I didn’t believe it when Ross said how original Gigi was ... um Pam Ann say HI!!!!

Oh! Yeah how do you NOT realize that? And also why didn’t they just stop her? To me, THAT was the strangest thing.

Gigi is someone who just relies on swears and insults without actually being funny... That's literally all her comedy has been all season and for some reason it makes Ru piss his pants...

I said weeks ago, that GiGi was a one trick pony.  She really doesn't have much to offer, other than the first couple of times you saw her routine.  Then it got old.  That's why she has not won or been in the top for the last couple of weeks.  Jaida's act was awful.  Granted what Sherry Pie did was obvious.  There's no way you can go on that long  and not know.  But Jaida seemed to blame being last on why she did so bad.  If she would have gone in the middle,  it still would have been awful.  She should have just owned it, instead of making excuses.   I thought Jackie's act was the best.  (And I don't like her).  Her runway look was not good and that's why she did not get the win.  As I said last week, Crystal is going to be the winner.

I think Jaida would have done better if she didn't have to wait almost 20 minutes for Sherry to finish. The anxiety and frustration built up, and it affected her performance. I'm not saying her act was great, but I would be stressed out if Sherry did that to me. Jaida should have blamed her, not Jackie.

Yes.  I was really expecting an explosive Untucked.  I thought Jaida was really going to give it to Sherry.  I was kind of disappointed that she didn't.

I actually really liked Jackie's runway. I enjoy Crystal a lot, but I could not believe they ate up her schtick so much when they read Rock M. Sakura earlier this season for a fart joke. The inconsistency in the judging is astounding.

I personally wanted Heidi to go home. She honestly got on my nerves more than anything and I was never that impressed with her. Her confessionals were pretty funny at times but I felt she had ran her course on the show. She's basically a shoo-in for "Miss congeniality"

I thought Jackie was the one to beat in the first couple episodes. Her style was so specific and well done. But it all went downhill from there. I don't even recognize her as the sme queen that started.
Not a fan of Crystal this week. I just didn't get her male stripper bit. at. all. And her cow get up read as costume, not drag.  Her runway last week, on the other hand, was in my top 10  favorite runway looks of all seasons. She's been inconsistant. But, considering Sherry Pie wont be winning, Crystal is at least the most interesting queen left. So I root for her in a season that really hasn't had anyone I've felt particularly strongly about.

Gigi bores me and she's too neurotic. Jaida is well put together but too boring, old school pageant queen for me.

Art has a double face, of expression and illusion.

Gigi is a serious one-trick pony -- that faintly sinister extremely mellow delivery can be undeniably funny, but it gets rather monotonous.  That said, I liked her Stewardess To Hell routine.

And Jaida.  Well. She's fine as far as she goes, but I don't think she goes very far.  She's about due to sashay away.

I don't think there's anyone this season who has shown the mysterious longevity of the unspeakable Silky Ganache, whose extended stay on the show made me seriously doubt RuPaul's judgment, and not for the first time.

There's nothing wrong with being a one-trick pony if the trick has been perfected. That deadpan bitchiness is very funny, but it's clear that Gigi isn't entirely confident with the delivery. The reason Maria the Robot worked well was that it didn't need to sound effortless. The delayed reaction was part of the humor. She just needs to develop the persona better so that it sounds more natural.

But if that is all you can do, regardless of how perfected it is, it gets old.  Maria the Robot worked well because it was the first time the audience was exposed to it.  Since then, there have been weak variations of the same gimmick and they failed.  Even her runway looks have become dull.  Not once has she taken a chance outside of her comfort zone.  I like Crystal, but she is also dull.  But what will get her the crown is that she takes chances with her looks and the majority of the time they are successful.  At least in the eyes of the judges.

With that being said, I am very excited to see how this season turns out in the end. It's going to be tight that's all I can say.

It's a strong top 5 that is for sure.

I was so disappointed (though not that surprised) to see Heidi go.  She is one of my all time favourites now and I can't wait to see how her career skyrockets after the show.

I love Crystal and she seems like a genuinely lovely person however I think this is now Jaida's to lose.  Gigi did some great work at the beginning but seems to be running out of steam.  We know what happens with Sherry Pie and I just don't think Jackie Cox will make it to the finals.  I loved Jackie's stand up though - she was awesome.

It's wild to think we really know who the top 4 are at this point, or at least we think we do. Any chance we think the 5th place girl won't be bumped into the finale.

Untucked is really hard to sit through this season. Is anyone else bored to tears watching it?

I have to say, I have NO idea who is going to win this season.

Yes, it's usually the queens fawning over the celebrity judges.  The best one, this season, was Heidi speaking up for Aiden, when she was getting bullied.  Last weeks episode, could have been great, if Jaida would have confronted Sherry about going over her time.  We've seen Jaida lose her temper over less. I'm not sure why she didn't let her have it.  The editing doesn't appear that they are that close. I would much rather have had thirty minutes of that then Whoopi visiting backstage. Of course, it doesn't help that by the time Untucked airs, we've already sat through three hours of drag.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Crystal is going to win.

If this were getting the finale it deserves, I’d bet good money that Ru would get El DeBarge to perform.

I agree.  I'm not a fan of Jackie Cox, but she clearly won.  RuPaul had to give the illusion there was really a bottom 2.  There was no way she was sending Crystal home over Jackie.  I will say out of all the queens, Crystal's looks are so different, each time she paints, compared to the others.
