RPDR s6e10 Drag My Wedding 21 April 2014



Last time on RuPaul's Drag Race the queens guest hosted RuPaul's resurrected talk show.  Talk show guests were Georgia Holt and Chaz Bono.  On the runway they all were joined by Paula Abdul.

Courtney Act nabbed her second win.  Now, all remaining contestants have two wins, except for Darienne Lake with one, and Joslyn Fox with none.


Adore Delano and Trinity K. Bonet were bottom two,
with Trinity sent packing.

Before I get into anything, did you notice that this is no longer in play?

Ru goes right to showing her gorgeous face against the white background.  I just found online today that she received protests over the female/she-male mini-challenge in episode four, and that spilled over to the You've Got She-Mail bit.   Wow.   I have so much to learn.  It never crossed my mind that that would have been offensive.   Well, okay, I'm on board, the last thing I want or need to do is piss someone off, or disrespect someone.   

The morning after Trinity was eliminated, Ru's mini-challenge is to create artwork using the entire body as the painting tool.  (They get body suits so they won't get too messy unless they want to get that way.)

I guess she really wanted it.

I am no art critic, well, I'm about to give an opinion, so let me say, I have NO QUALIFICATIONS to be an art critic.  Wait, I did suffer through two seasons of Sarah Jessica Parker's "Work Of Art."  That counts for something eh?  I don't mean that gave me judging skills, I mean that suffering through that gives me the right to complain about that particular show.  One never complains without a reason, eh?   Oh, God, lightning is gonna zap me dead any second.

— and, yet, I miss The Sucklord.

Bianca wins the mini-challenge.  Why?  I have no idea.  I liked three, including hers, and didn't like the other three.   What's wrong with me that I actually liked some of them?   Henc, henc, mes amis.

Back in the work room Ru brings in some real word ladies for the contestants to make over.   Or maybe not.  It was a RUse!  They have to make over their male fiances.  Ru will marry them right on the runway.   Woo-hoo!

The queens are supposed to make over the guys so that they look like their very own daughter.  Does that mean that Courtney Act's guy bride will not have much make up or clothing on, because she does 'realness' over extreme drag?   Or that Joslyn Fox's black guy will now be white?    Will Darienne's be overly padded?   

The mind boggles.

The bog mindles.

Let's just cut to the chase, shall we?  Oh, wait, first you need to know that Joslyn Fox's guy daughter bride was edited to look like he wasn't cooperating, but he was merely concerned (he's a professional basketball player) about standing up against homophobia in the locker room.  

Also, Darienne's male daughter bride wanted to wear all black, to be kind of 'goth,' and Adore's wanted to go punk.

Joining Ru, Michelle and Santino are the adorable Neil Patrick Harris and fiance David Burtka.  Why they didn't get married by Ru along with the six couples, I can't say.  

Joslyn Fox
 
Why is he painted white, and unsuccessfully at that?  All this time I thought Joslyn was an expert at beating faces.  Now I think she only knows how to do her own, and did the same for her black guy.  Shame.   I guess I have to say that they do NOT look like they came from the same family, as Joslyn looks great (and older than usual, yes?  Good on her for that) but her daughter doesn't look so hot.

Courtney Act
 
First off, "Rien" in French is "Nothing."  That's probably not the best word to use, even if "reenact" is a cute play with Ms. Act's last name.  I do see the family resemblance.  However, Courtney looks fantastic and young, and the daughter looks matronly.   Even if it was on purpose, one does not upstage one's daughter at the wedding ceremony!

Bianca Del Rio
Strong family semblance.  I can't really tell, but since her day job is a seamster, I am sure the dress fits her like a glove.

Darienne Lake
I don't see a family resemblance.   Darienne did not go goth for herself, and the daughter is goth-lite and lame at best.   He was a hoot during the show.  Actually, all the guys were great sports and wonderfully entertaining in a sweet way.

Adore Delano
The judges didn't think there was a family resemblance, but I really do see it.  That doesn't mean they look decent, though.  Punk can be a little more polished.

BenDeLaCreme
I see family resemblance, I buy that the look is fairly good, but shouldn't the daughter look better?  It's not as bad as Courtney's (where the mother is awesome and the daughter is sorry.)


Bianca wins the challenge!  Both "mother" & "daughter" win
a trip for two to Hawaii.   Here's how the queens placed:

     1. Bianca Del Rio
     2. BenDeLaCreme
     3. Courtney Act
     4. Darienne Lake
     5. Adore Delano
     6. Joslyn Fox


That means Adore & Joslyn lip synched.  For Aretha Franklin's "Think" Adore went for overly animated,  Joslyn for realness.

I do believe Joslyn earned her elimination, but I sure wish she could stick around.  She really grew on me, and not like a fungus.  

On Untucked we got more of a story about how Joslyn's B-ball player was overcome and had to rush off stage to pull a Willam.  The brides and grooms all were gracious, and applauded Joslyn for remaining professional the entire time she was being let go.   Good on all y'all!

You can't mix Australian-ese and Southern-speak!  Stop it!

Adore got a video message from her mom, and we heard again about her wanting to go in drag, but the mother convincing her to go butch / straight acting to American Idol season seven auditions.

I pray to God they do NOT bring someone else in next week, or the following week.   Carmen is season three, yes, but Kenya in season four, NO.   Never do it again, Ru, oak high?
