So, there are still 7 drag queens competing.
The main challenge is to create perfume and market it. They are given various oils or scents with which to make their olfactory sensation, containers to house it, and are told they will be writing and staring in a commercial for it. Hmmm … should they go serious or funny? Oh, please, this is drag, one should always be funny, eh?
Aubrey O'Day (Danity Kane) and Jon Van Ark (Knot's Landing) guest judge. Aubrey and Michelle Visage oversee the filming of the commercials. They pretty much find fault with everything. I know it's just the way they edit, but each seems to have a chance to place anywhere. I find the Alaska and the Jinkx commercials funny, just like I them funny. Yeah, let's throw Detox in there, too. I'm trying to figure out who will be in the bottom with Alyssa, who doesn't seem that put together, but, geez, they ALL seem like that on SOME level.
Let's see how the runway went:
for "Ru Animale"
for "Red For Filth"
for "Dress Code"
for "Alyssa's Secret"
for "Thick & Juicy"
The judges don't like Coco's commercial (too busy, lion mask man is too funny for a serious commercial) but they like her runway outfit. The judges crack up during Alaska's commercial. They don't comment on her simple, not spectacular runway outfit. Huh? Ivy Winters is torn apart for not having any ideas, just having uncomfortable moments. Detox cracks up the judges completely. Santino doesn't like the runway look too much. Alyssa's commercial bombs from her animated eye antics, and Santino's inability to invest in paying attention. Jinkx is petrified (she is chanting "Water Off A Duck's Back") but, the judges are laughing at her commercial. Joan says the concept is the best of them all. Michelle LOVES her look. So much for being one of the worst dressed a few weeks ago. Roxxxy is accused for not having much of a concept. She tries to apologize for it SEEMING like it wasn't much of a concept, but Michelle corrects her, saying it is UNPROFESSIONAL. Good on you, Michelle.
Alright folks, I know who I want in the top 3, do you? Not who I think will be there, but who I want to be there. I'm hoping it will be Alaska, Detox and Jinkx. I want Alyssa and Roxxxy to go next, and Coco to place 4th. Of course, I just want the judging to be accurate, as to however the contestants actually end up doing. We'll see. As long as Shangela and PhiPhi don't come in and hijack the season, I'm alright with what happens. Probably. Possibly. Oh, this is hard!
