It's a new day in the work room according to Alaska, and she has broken up Rolaskatox. Roxxxy thinks it's just Rotox now. Oy. For the mini-challenge the queens read each other. Standard fare, but Alaska won. The main challenge is to roast RuPaul herself. They will write and deliver their own jokes, plus they can rank on not only Ru, but the judges and their fellow contestants. Nadya Ginsburg, Deven Green and Bruce Vilanch will coach the queens. You know how it goes, they show them all doing horribly, but when the actual event takes place, they all do great. Well, not ALL.
On the Michelle-thru (yes, you read that right) Alaska impresses, Roxxxy isn't afraid, but she isn't funny. Ivy's notebook page is EMPTY. Coco is taking a different approach and will play a character. Is that definitely a hindrance or a help? Alyssa calls Michelle the First Lady. Ha! Alyssa seems to be only reading, not telling a Dean Martin Roast type of joke. Geez, most of these drag racers seem to be doing poorly at this moment. All of them get advice during the coaching, but, for the most part, they sure look like they are gonna BOMB. Roxxxy is accused of flatlining. He isn't funny at all, just insulting.
There's no runway, so let's look at their roast outfits:
At the actual roast Alaska, Coco and Jinkx shine brightly. The audience, and, more importantly, the judges are in hysterics, especially Michelle. Detox and Ivy have rather funny moments, but also have trouble in spots. Roxxy and Alyssa seriously flounder, and are completely unfunny.
So, we're at the same place we were last week. The next challenge is reminiscent of the book tour challenge from s2e7, Once Upon A Queen. They will showcase a new fragrance, instead of a book. Not sure who will sink in this area, but I'm expecting Ivy Winters to excel on this one, she seems to have design and vision and creativity down pat.
