Others than me that think Ivy Winters looks completly like Michelle Paige Brooks?

You mean "Nicole" Paige Brooks? Not really, Nicole's ratchet.
So excited for tonights episode, I just hope it steers the season into another direction. Right now it's just... yawn.
this episode, it was harder than ususal to assess how the individual queens did, since they didnt create the dance routines themselves, and the runway show was cut short.
bye, honey and vivienne, no one will miss you! gawd, those two were boring, and ru did the exact right thing. not that it matters, but i think vivienne had the tighter lip-synch.
so, alyssa is making weird faces in front of the mirror. the thing is, the faces she makes whenever shes not in front of a mirror - in and out of drag - are even weirder.
jinks & ivy: adorable. former is a frontrunner and im so crushing on the latter.
alaska may have been insecure about her dancing, but i loved her prim mom drag.
detox is super polished and she always brings it, even if she doesnt always stand out. she is this seasons chad michaels.
coco - ugh.

I was mad sitting on the couch watching Vivienne and Honey stand there like DUCKS during Oops! I would've busted out the actual choreography. They weren't ready.
@ the elimination.
It's so funny that Ru decided to get rid of them both,because while they were up there lip synching...I was thinking: she needs to send both of their asses home.
i thougth Roxxy was cute also but now i just find him fucking annoying..we get he lost weight and he is proud it...but the bitch needs to turn it down and his looks...i mean he was wearing clear stripper heels for one of the episodes..no no no no....
I think the right ones went home this week Vivienne had her chance and Honey was just wearing the same look over and over and no personality...and i loooove a good kraftan both thoose were bad
Speaking of same looks wasent Alyssa wearing the same outfit as she did when the girls were arriving on the first episode...just with a hat this time? and what was up with detox's look? that looked soooo homemade and messy
but im kinda sick of these time things and i need some more stuff were the girls have to make their own outfits......
spunks, I feel the exact same way about Roxxxy -- or her, Delta, and Alaska for that matter. They remind me of the kids in high school that "want to be" popular and "think" they're popular when really, they're not. They're trying to be the "Heathers" of this season, NOT EVEN CLOSE. They're so delusional and it's so irritating to watch.
Anyway, loved this past episode because it validated some of the girls' position in the competition. Alyssa did a phenomenal job and I like her a little bit more now. Ivy got some good feedback, too. She'll do great in single challenges as she's used to making outfits out of unconventional things. I don't know what the judges were thinking, but I loved Jynx's outfit. I got a Ke$ha/Gaga vibe. Viv and Honey needed to go. Easily the worst lip-sync of all seasons.
So with two queens gone, doesn't that mean one more comes back? Everyone who was eliminated so far deserved to go. If not that, then Ru probably just won't send a Queen home next week.
Usually by episode 4, I would already have a favorite queen but I still don't have a favorite season 5 queen yet. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........I wonder why.

i like this season because so far the challenges have been fun, the judges' decision havent been too nutty, and the contestants are entertaining. however, i agree that there havent been any break-out stars this season. i guess jinkx and detox come closest.
I agree with hylas though - the challenges this year have been very fun, a big improvement over last year where it seemed at times they were phoning it in. Just wish the queens were as memorable.

ok, it took a while, but jinkx is defnitely my favourite now. a deserved win... and shut up, michelle visage; you cant judge anybody while wearing that ugly ass cardigan!
coco/alyssa/jade: ugh ugh ugh
ivy: i liked her runway look, but i have to admit, shes the blandest one left. probably the next to go. but, dear ivy, if i give you my number, will you call me?
rolaskatox: like always, good but not great. i liked roxxys hair on the runway.
lynesha: she cut her hair, didnt she? anyway, probably the first truly talented queen to go home. i have to admit, i never quite "connect" with the puerto rican queens, and she was no exception.
coco > alyssa
i thought detox's performance in snatch game was better than lineysha's but lineysha's lip synch was better. like okay detox we get it, you have freaky fucked up lips. personally, I've seen a video of detox lip synching at club before so it was just seemed like...okay? one trick pony much?

I finally have a favorite and it's Jynx. Took a bit but I got there. I'm very over all this Alyssa/CoCo nonsense but I have to say it really seems like CoCo is typically the one stoking the fires although she seems like the person I'd typically like more out of the two.
this was a really bad week for coco.
first, she brags about not knowing who little edie is. bitch, youre a drag queen pushing 40(?). shame on you!
then she gives a total non-performance as janet jackson, although she is a professional janet jackson impersonator. how embarassing.
her runway look was crap, too. it was pure minaj, but with the details all wrong. minaj would never wear that jewlery with that wig and that catsuit. you either replicate it faithfully, or you interpret it in some interesting way... she fell uncomfortably between either of these options.
I guess I'm old school but this is the ugliest bunch of drag queens, save a few, I've ever seen. I just guess camp drag was never my thing really. I can really appreciate someone that can give the total realistic allusion of being a woman. I don't personally understand it but I can appreciate it.
The only few that could possibly do that are Ivy Winters and the Roxy kid and maybe the Asian guy. If they changed everything they do. The rest of them are just camp drag gals and not very entertaining.
Last night was a lose/lose for me because I love both Detox and Lineysha. Mostly because Lineysha was just so damn unintentionally funny. But I'ma miss ha tho.
Roxxxy established herself as my favorite last night, because that Tamar Braxton impersonation... she DID THAT! Yas.

this season is still flatlining for me.
BUT--I did love watching Alyssa and Jade's back and forth during untucked.
Bitches had me cracking up with that foolishness.
Lineysha was interesting at first, but I wasn't terribly upset to see her go. I don't like Detox, but she has talent and a much more interesting persona. Glad she is sticking around.
Roxxxy...can we see you OUT of drag more please?
It was time for Linesha to go. She was very fishy, but otherwise pretty boring. With that said, I thought her lip sync was a bit tighter than Detox's, although Detox was more entertaining.
Ivy really disappointed me. Her Marilyn was boring and I couldn't believe she didn't get that president line.
Roxxy is still the frontrunner for me, but I think Detox is strong too.
I really loved the Alyssa, Coco, and Jade drama on Untucked. I hope they can bring some of that energy to the runway because there are times when I'm a bit bored by all three of them.
Jinkx is fun, but I would like to see stronger glam, so we know she's well-rounded.
Overall, I'm enjoying this season, but it's not my favorite.
Jinxx was amazing...and theese queens should be ashamed of not knowing about little edie but im sure they know all the lyrics to kesha horrrrrrible.......The way these queens are judgeing her is horrible...reminds me of when Raja was there...
I thought Detox was horrible agian...her Kesha was so fucking boring ( i really didten see a big transformation from her to detox) and the runway look was the same siluette as ladt week just two layered this time and still it looked like shit .. Also I think she is one trick pony once all she can do perfomance wise is the jaw thing
I really liked Alaska's Lady bunny..spot on I think her & jinxx are the only two who have the quickness and humor that it takes...the rest of the queens are just looks
Glad everyone sees what I see in Jynx. She didn't grow on me until the second episode. I think she's the only "sane" one in the competition. It feels like she's the first Queen to ever cry on the show and seem sincere about it that it makes me sad lol. I don't think her outfits are that bad, but I do agree that I want to see her "Glamazon" it up a bit, maybe take an outfit out Lynaeshas closet.
I havent seen seasons 1-3 but has anyone ever done Christian Aguilera for snatch game? I would love do see some drag queens do Xtina
and have them randomly adding vocal runs to the end of each sentence lol
drag queens love xtina and xtina loves drag queens!
id do björk. as a german speaking asian, i think id get both the look and the accent right. plus, i was a rabid björk fan in my teens, so i know quite a lot about her. also, i think she has the potential to be really hilarious.
my drag name would be envy mae ^^
As for this episode... eh. Look, I know Snatch Game is tradition, but i'm TIRED of seeing so many queens botch it. This was, however, the first season where a queen acted like she was ABOVE creating a character for it. Alyssa should be embarrassed.
Did not care for Detox's Jokerface lip-sync. Sorry, I felt that she should have gone home - silly, borderline awful outfit... lip-sync was weird to look at, but that's just it - weird.
I hope this season improves, because i'm very unimpressed with the talent this year - I think they were banking on the Coco/Alyssa feud to "steal the show", but I just think they're both being children about it.
Coco has been taking unprovoked jabs at Alyssa since day one so she deserves whatever she gets back. I'm not saying Alyssa isn't an instigator, but at least she doesn't act the helpless victim...So over it!
Ro laska tox is wearing thin as well. Stop trying to make fetch happen!
Jinkx is the one I have loved nonstop since I watched her in the meet the queens specials. I really hope she makes it to the finals. If you haven't seen it yet go to her website and watch The Vaudvillians. Hubby and I were dying!
the more I think about it...Rupaul shouldnt have let the Coco and Alyssa into the same season/cast.
It makes the drama seem so like contrived. Drama's gon arise naturally...a la Jade/Alyssa or Serena Cha Cha being a pretentious dumbass
im glad to see that im not the only one who thinks the same about this season, the talent pool has been really bland, and boring, and it seems like only about half of them are really trying.
jinkx is my favorite, and i feel she has a good chance to win if she ups the glamour a bit, she would be the first campy queen to win (although Sharon would fall into that category as well).
Coco cracks me up, especially when she fights with serena "ive been doing this since 1992, was you even born yet little boy".
the reading is at al all time high this season, some times untucked is better than the actual show lol.
I am team Ro-laska-tox for sure there my favs... as for Jinx she keeps playing the victim and its getting tired
coco: what a bitter bitch. and im surprised at how unprofessional she was, given her experience. i liked her runway look, but her make-up was not good, and showing her "heart" as her favourite body part was ridiculous. im sorry but her "heart" is possibly the ugliest part of her.
alyssa: she wins a point for wearing a triforce t-shirt, and another one for her video in untucked. that was some deep stuff.
detox: shes too complacent, and her plastic surgery creeps me the hell out. but i liked how she strategically paired up coco and alyssa, and her runway look was DYNAMITE.
ivy: good for her! i still dont think she really has it in her, but i also still really like her.
jade: it was clearly her time to go. i did like her blue wig.
jinkx: still my fave.
None of the queens in this season are in the same calibre as the past winners, but I'd love to see Jynx win, maybe she'll turn it up. Roxxxy would be a great contender, but I hate her attitude. She needs to quit reusing that same wig, too.
I still like Roxxxy okay. She's fine alone...but when she gets with the other two members of Rolaskatox, I just can't. Pretty decent episode this week...I don't really care much for any of the girls, so I was okay with the elimination. I think it was fair..
Alyssa and her father almost had me in tears during the Untucked bit.
Also, does anyone have issues/pay attention to the songs used each season for the runway? I am really partial to the one they used for the first season (Covergirl) and I wish they would use it for all the seasons' runway segments.
Thre best part of the show this week was seeing Anita and Ruth (The Pointer Sisters). I was thinking when I saw them judging how they used to dress back in 1972-75...alot like drag queens.
I liked Jade for the drama, but honestly she should have stepped it up.
I'm glad Ivy did well and I love her creative outfits. She needs to make sure her verbal wit is strong and not like it was in Snatch Game.
Roxxxy is still doing great, IMO and should keep it up.
I felt bad for Alaska. I can certainly sympathize with how she felt when the judges ask her to show heart and she feels like her message isn't coming through. It's happened to many contestants on shows like this.
Alyssa is still bringing it and even though Coco and her are feuding and it can get old, I think she's one of the better queens this season.
Coco was good, not great for me this episode.
As for Detox, I'm starting to feel a little bored with her. Sometimes I love what she does, but sometimes I want to see more.
Somehow, when I'm recapping on who I like and don't like, I always forget Jinkx. I'm not sure why. She's being consistent, but I still want her to look a hair more polished.
Next episode looks like it could be fun. I'm looking forward to it.
why is that everytime there is an 80s theme allmost all of the girls have the most tackiest & cliche full outfits...for me there are some strong fierce looks from that era but it allways ends with neon colors,bows & tutu skirts
I have it with Detox OFFICIALLY as she would say....she is so fucking annoying and full of herself with nothing to back it up with....i wonder when all the plastic stuff why on earth didten she get her nose fixed.....
I felt bad for Alaska...you could see that when in sharon's season when alaska gave a video greeting you could already tell there that they have had some issues but I think Alaska is the smartest and quickest of them all if only she could pull her looks up alittle she could win the thing
im fine with elemination for Jade's outfit alone...giiiiirl
Not going to spoiler anyone, but talk about playing the sympathy card!
Ugh Roxy's mess felt very insincere especially on a week when she was complaining so much about Jinx being insecure
Yay to the Rolaskatox clique crumbling this week. I like Alaska better when she's focused on herself. Detox and Roxxxy are finally realizing they're not the cream of the crop. Ivy surprised me, I seriously thought she was going to fail miserably but she did a good job considering personality and humor isn't her strongest quality. She looked gorj as always.
another great episode!
obviously, roxxxys playing the game, but i think her pain and her tears were also real. its the combination of reality tv manipulation and sincerity that this show does so well, both the producers and the contestants. nobody here talks down to the audience. this is the smartest fucking reality tv show ever. i really felt for roxxxy, and rupauls voice cracking made me teary eyed. still dont particularly love roxxxy, though, who just seems a little too nasty.
not as nasty as coco, though. good for her for powering through the challenge, especially given how disastrous her previous comedy performance was. but hell, this bitch is just bitter and nasty. alyssa is no saint, but if i had to pick sides, id pick hers.
i honestly thought ivy would do better. shes not much of a performer, but shes smart, and that goes a long way in comedy.
jinkx and alaska did well. i think alaska should have won, and jinkx really brought it on the runway.
detox was a little forgettable this week, but i loved her hair.

I liked this episode. It was one of my favorites this season.
I'm really glad that Jinkx brought it with her look on the runway. I think she could be a contender for top 3, if not the crown.
For the first time, I was not thrilled with Roxxxy. Her looks aren't impressing me as much and she really bombed the challenge. But above and beyond all that, I was really not happy with the way she keeps making nasty remarks about Jinkx.
Detox was okay. I definitely wasn't a fan of her f-bombs.
Alyssa looked good, but definitely fell flat. I hope she can bounce back.
Alaska did great! I hope she can keep it going and make it until the end.
Coco did a good job, but I'm definitely hoping the feud becomes less of a focus the rest of the season.
Finally, Ivy did okay. I'm glad she wasn't up for elimination.
Overall, I really like this season and the show and I'm interested to see where things go.
awk. you can bet your ass if roxxxy didnt pull that shit, SOMEONE would have went home
RuPaul knows what hes doing.
If he sent Alyssa home, people would have said well you just felt bad for Roxxxy which is unfair for Alyssa
If she sent Roxxxy home right away, then Ru would have been the cold hearted bitch
Pretty good episode. I think the roast was fun stuff!
I think Coco did an awesome job, but Alaska and Detox made me laugh a little bit more.
Loved when Detox told Ru something along the lines of: enjoy these years, because you don't have many left...or something like that.
It was a fun challenge.
btw, does anyone else really like Alyssa? I know she can be messy sometimes, but I find something so genuine about her. I also like Coco...sometimes.
Roxxxy's story was so sad. I'm not sure if it really made THE difference in the final decision, but I was alright with the outcome.
Alyssa has been growing on me. I love her personality. I really do think she's sincerely joking around, but her jokes come across as shade. I laughed out so loud watching her laugh at her own jokes and her reactions to stuff are priceless.
my first impression of alyssa was that shes a hot mess. shes grown on me a little since, but i think its mostly that im so over coco, which makes alyssa look better by comparison.
Roxxy needs to leave.... my god..so tired of this bitch and then this shit with her being left at the busstop girl that was cheap points + her lipsync was really bad all she did was flippin the hair....
Also her dig at Jinxx in untucked when saying this was an unfair challenge girl please...in rupaul's drag race you should know that you have to be a jack of all trades..and you knew that there would be a comedy challenge
Ivy she is very creative but i dont care for her make up skills and dont really think she has that much of personallity.. her reading + the roast was really bad and for me a drag queen should be able to read a person pronto....
Detox< was bland....she can also go home and her constantly use of the f-word is not helping..
Alaska< i think this was really her day and i loved her but have to agree with michelle on her looks she needs to changed it up a little...she's been doing the same hairstyle and prom dressy thing for ages now
Jinxx< she was fun and good..dont really care for her dressing style but atleast she has a personal style
Coco< im actually beginning to like how she is leaving in a coco world withouth no feeling for the outside world haha
Allyssa< she is growing on me aswell and i loved how she is able just to laugh it of...
