This week the girls took on a “galaxy far, far away” with a Queens in Space theme. The queens had to split up into two groups and perform two campy space scripts for faux-movie trailers. The team captains were Mariah and Phoenix (picked based on their winning of the mini challenge) with Team Mariah pulling it out for the win. Shangela Laquifa Wadley and Alexis Mateo both ended up winning the runway challenge.
Favorite Moment: I really like when they have the queens do an acting challenge. Drag is a performance art and you definitely need to have that talent to succeed at the craft. So watching the queens navigate their acting abilities was really fun for me. I know all the attention was payed to Mimi, Shangela and Alexis, but I thought Stacy Layne Matthews was the best. And I’m getting sick of hearing the other girls put her down, the girl has got some skills.
Runway Pick: The runway was a mess this week. I’m just not a fan of the whole “alien chic” thing. And everyone looked like they copied everyone else. But if I had to pick a look, it would be Yara Sofia’s. She did a lot better job at channeling Lady Gaga then some of the others.
My Top 3: Stacy Layne Matthews, Raja and Yara Sofia
Untucked: If you didn’t catch the Untucked episode this week then you need to go online right now an watch it. Shangela pulled a Mystique and pretty much attacked Mimi backstage. I’m really not enjoying Shangela this season. The girl is trying to fight with every inch of her being to prove that she deserves this second chance and how she was wronged last season, but nobody’s buying it. (Who are you trying to prove honey? Us or you?) She pretty much went back into that room trying to start a fight. Not cool.
