Wait a minute, now all I can see is The Three Degrees.
Meanwhile, back at the point:
(This is not a NAMBLA moment, don't worry!)
Roxxy Andrews & Detox Icunt
Vaxeline Androxxx Zoe
Jade Jolie & Jinkx Monsoon
Tina Lou Devereaux
Ivy Winters & Vivienne Pinay
Honey Mahogany & Alyssa Edwards
Lineysha Sparkx & Alaska Thunderfuck
Lil Pound Cake
Monica B. Hillz & Coco Montrese
Patty Park Place
shot of these 'three.' Sort of an omen, n'est-ce pas?
… and the winner is …
Lineysha & Alaska are now team captains for the main challenge, which is to star in a children's show in the spirit of Pee-Wee's Playhouse. That means it will be innocuous for the kids, but with hidden double entendres for the adults.
Lineysha chooses Honey Mahogany, Coco Montrese, Jinks, Ivy and Jade while Alaska grabs Detox, Roxanne (not Roxxxy?,) Vivienne, Montica (not Monica?) and Alyssa. Lineysha has Honey as a ventriloquist, with Coco as the 'dummy.' They seem to not like the idea. Alaska wants Alyssa to be a rather butch Uncle Dick. We learn on the Ru-thru that Alaska will indeed do her teams hosting, but Lineysha will have Jinkx host, instead of herself. During the practice with Michelle Visage & RuPaul, we see good & bad in both teams, but the surprise is that Alaska is NOT in drag, per se, but is doing a male host, not a female, or drag host. Aren't they on RuPaul's DRAG Race? Also, Monica has a prop in order to have all her lines in front of her, and yet she still isn't saying them correctly. What?
Let's see how they do on the runway! Their theme was "think pink."
Monica Beverly Hillz
Ru states that while they worked as teams, they will be judged as individuals. Oh, good, that way Jinkx can be considered for the top, and Monica can be considered for the bottom. Ru calls out Honey, Ivy, Jade, Alyssa (in BOY drag for the main challenge) and Lineysha as safe. Lineysha gets a stern talking to, she would have been eliminated if she had not had immunity (from the prior 'lip synch' episode.)
The judges LOVED Alaska's runway pink look, but hate that he ignored the drag look in the children's show. Monica is read for not projecting, and Vivienne for being boring. Detox and Roxxxy are praised up & down. Jinkx is called out for being the lone star on her team. Coco is told that she wasn't up to par, and she breaks down, alluding to the stress of being near Alyssa.
Well, we've had three episodes. Who is your favorite? If different, who is going to win season five? Ivy, Jinkx, Roxxy and Detox have my attention. I keep thinking Jade might have the ability to step it up and be a contender. I fully expect Detox to win, but I'm not quite sure who I would like to have win.
