Countdown To The Crown • 25 May 2015
Last week we saw the top four contestants film a music video. It contained both dancing & acting. The elder two, Ginger Minj & Kennedy Davenport, continued to throw shade at the youngsters, Violet Chachki & Pearl.
"They all look pretty young to me!"
I am not disagreeing (or agreeing) with Ginger’s or Kennedy’s assessment. We viewers only see what makes the final edit. We don’t know what happens off camera. We also don’t know if they are being egged on by the producers. (Okay, they are there for a reason, they probably are instigating most of this.) Yet, G&K have been so over the top in their disdain for Violet (and to a lesser extent, Pearl.) When a contestant mocks another to such a great degree, I cry fowl.
presumably for her acting.
She places fourth for the season.
Last Monday night’s episode was sort of a recap on the way to next week’s coronation of the latest winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race. We got a few mini-countdowns, and lots of prior queen commentary, a la "I Love The '80s," et al.

I see Ginger and Violet each being worthy of the win. I adore Pearl, but I'd prefer one of the other two to win. I hope it's Violet, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be Ginger. I got my way with seasons 4, 5 & 6, so, clearly, this isn't my turn.
Maybe I'm just cranky because I haven't seen Shawn Morales this season. At least we had Miles Davis Moody.
