The game has absolutely been played this week, but we’ll visit that a little later. I always enjoy the makeover challenges in every season and this was no exception. Everything about this episode was gold.
Who should’ve won the Maxi Challenge
It’s sonny bitch. I loved that Naomi didn’t give you family resemblance in the way you would typically expect of Drag Race, they usually go for sisters or mother/daughter. For Naomi to bring this next level piece of art was great.
The top toot of the episode
Monet has become my look queen for this season, this look is pure gold. It looks expensive couture without being too over the top. Her mug is beat and that wig is perfection. We’re not gonna talk about Patty though.
The biggest boot of the episode
I’m sorry Miss Alexis Knight but baby this look was a complete boot. I hate the whole thing and unfortunately it’s Latrice’s fault. You can tell that Latrice knows how to beat her own mug, but somebody else, that’s another issue.
Who should’ve gone home
This is where it gets complicated. If we go on score cards, then yes, this would’ve been the easiest decision to make and Manila would’ve stayed and that would’ve been the end of that. However Naomi chose to play the game and send home her biggest competition, this was a really ballsy move and I completely commend her for it. What I hate about it is the backlash that she has received, she made good TV and that should be the end of that. If Trinity had been in the top and (not that she ever would) had sent home her biggest competition (aka Manila) then I’m 100% sure that there wouldn’t be as much backlash. I don’t know why this would be, but I just know that it would.
My favourite moment of the episode
Watching Naomi absolutely fucking serve that Lip sync. She gave it her all and earned that $10k tip! It was a weird choice for a lip sync song (but not as weird as the dance number) but it can’t be helped. Naomi has been serving looks and doing her absolute best and people are not seeing that.
