“This season is all about my comeback kids,” RuPaul mentioned, descending into the workroom with arms clasped. And, certainly, “All Stars” supplies a possibility for they all to amend their earlier efficiency — smartly, they all however one, a marvel 10th contestant, introduced with car-chase underscoring: BeBe Zahara Benet, winner of the decidedly cash-strapped first “Drag Race” season, sure, however a winner however.
“She’s already had the crown,” Milk complained in a confessional. “Grandma, sit down!”
BenDeLaCreme received the primary mini-challenge — studying every different à los angeles “Paris is Burning” — with a perfect dig at Thorgy. “I love this whole outfit,” she mentioned. “I usually get to see about this much when you’re handing out balloons from that sewer grate.”
Each week on “All Stars,” the highest two queens lip-sync to win — a rule that extra correctly esteems efficiency skill than on “Drag Race,” the place you simplest carry out for those who’re about to lose. The winner then comes to a decision who’s eradicated.
“I’m going to send the bitch home who I think is the strongest,” Morgan admitted, now not in a confessional however out loud, to everybody. “Why lie about it?” (Category is: uncalled-for sniper sublime, unhealthy game eleganza.)
The episode’s maxi-challenge was once a wide range display in entrance of a reside target audience, through which the queens needed to show off their highest talents. Particularly sturdy have been Aja, who leapt from a platform right into a frisson-inducing death-drop; Shangela, who lip-synced and danced with verve; and Trixie, who sang and performed the autoharp. BeBe and Milk, who additionally lip-synced, and Thorgy, who performed the violin, have shyed away from each removing and triumph. BenDeLaCreme, doing daffy, burlesque, was once named best two with Aja, they usually squared off in a spirited lip-sync to Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” BenDeLaCreme’s playful take gave her the brink, and she or he emerged victorious.
“With great power comes great responsibility,” RuPaul intoned, tasking BenDeLaCreme with slicing one in every of backside two: Chi Chi, who twirled a baton in jazz apartments (the pass judgement on Michelle Visage’s face visibly dropped), and Morgan, who lip-synced too tentatively to an unique music that, rather frankly, may’ve used Fred Ebb on lyrics.
Morgan was once unexpectedly eradicated, however I doubt that’s the remaining we’ll see of her. The gods would possibly not praise hubris, however Reddit definitely does, and America is gagged for subterfuge. (Give me deferential British home-bakers any day.)
“Blessed be, kitty girl, I’ve got your back,” RuPaul cackled from a tv within the workroom as Morgan collected her issues. Behind her, the 2 Ofrupauls lurked.
Will Morgan go back? Did Chi Chi convey a heel? Is there an Ofmilk? Until subsequent week.
