That was some bullshit runway judging. No way Kimora should have been in the bottom over the plethora of generic, forgettable looks. "Safe" is certainly an apt word for what they were serving. Not gonna argue with that lipsync result, though.

I have to find a new queen to stan now...*sign*

Valentina and Trinity shouldn't have been top 3. I guess the judges care way more about the sidekick characters than I do.

And I was surprised RU of all people threw shade at Kimora for getting emotional over not padding.

I mean, padding and prosthetics have become so commonplace in drag these days that queens in some circles DO get read for not padding. Remember when Courtney Act constantly got read in the blogs for not padding because her muscular body ruined her otherwise perfectly fishy illusion?

And if we're going to buy into the idea that drag is art AS WELL as an extension of your identity, I could completely understand Kimora being uncomfortable not being padded. Kimora is a body queen.

I still think she deserved to go home, but that was a shit criticism.

After watching Untucked...

Kimora - Such a ditz, but what a class act. Applause, gurl.

Aja - BYE. She's everything I hate about the NY drag scene. Girl, you're loud and awful and your drag is a fucking mess. You put on some chaps and really thought you were doing some groundbreaking shit, huh? Like, Kimora's overconfidence can be abrasive, but at least she CAN serve. Aja's drag is all photoshop. She can go next.

Eureka - I really hated her in the first episode, but I've been warming up to her. Somebody must have told her you can be sassy without attacking everyone. I also love how she paints her face. Very Classic Drag.

Valentina - It's hard to not see the obvious "Winner" edit she's getting, but I can't hate because so far she's serving. I'll agree with what Raja said in the last Photo Fashion Ruview episode though: she's needs to cut back on that creepy serial killer smile.

Nina - So far, this competition is between her and Valentina, but I think she needs to cut back on the paper props. The Georgia peach head was cute and fun, but the paper head made this look feel a little cheap. I think she would have looked better without it.

Alexis Michelle - Who? I'm sorry but gurl everything about her is boring. Still think she's the hottest out-of-drag though.

Sasha - Zzzzzzzzzzzz

Farrah - I'm surprised so many people thought she should have been lip-syncing. Yeah, her look was terrible, but at least she paid attention to the challenge and you can tell what she was going for. Oh, and she knows how to apply makeup to her face and properly glue on a lacefront. Apparently, that's a challenge for some.

Shea - starting to fade a bit for me.

Charlie Hides - REALLY surprised she wasn't in the top. Her sidekick was funny, and that DRESS? It almost looked like something Ru would wear. I'm surprised she's not getting more praise in general, actually. Other than her British maid look, she's been consistently good.

Peppermint - really stepped it up this episode.

Trinity - I mean, I guess.

I saw, slightly met, Katya at a bar, too. She's actually a bit shorter than I thought. For some reason, I imagined that she's like super tall.

They were both sitting down so I didn't get a size comparison... but they were so nice and gorgeous.

I hope you get to meet them one day, they were so nice. Like I didn't expect anything like it, thinking that they'd be into it cus it's their job but a little bit over it just because they have to do it so often. But they seemed really genuine and friendly :)

Since it was Valentine's Day and I was with my boyfriend, Katya told me to go and get my pussy pounded. 😂

Ginger is always so lovely to fans, I hope she isn't seriously ill by what happened the other day. She's my boyfriends favourite queen, she's here with Katya next weekend too, but I didn't get any tickets.

I wanna meet a Ru Girl D;

anyway, Kimora was a sweet heart in Untucked, she deserved to go but she was a class act throughout the whole thing.

Aja was rude and her make-up sucks and frankly wasn't really a fan of her so I wouldn't mind if she goes next

I think Eureka is probably one of the most polished big queens this show has ever had, she doesn't really annoy me so I'm partial to her.

Sasha is cute but generic, I'd SO kai-kai with her though.

Charlie is good but I'm meh about her, same with Trinity, I thought she was going to be one of the early exits but she's bringing it so far

Farrah is adorable, I just want to hug her, but girl, plz get more talent.

Alexis monopolizes conversations but I love the way she talks and her looks are unclockable.

Peppermint is good but expecting more from her.

Cynthia is Cynthia

Nina, Shea and Valentina are my favorite 3 queens so far.

Eureka is growing on me very fast. She's funny and the things she says are always on point.

When she's not being loud and talky she seems pretty nice too, willing to help others out or give tips/constructive criticism.

I'd love to see her go quite far because she's not only entertaining but she pushes the other girls to be better too. She annoyed me a bit in the first episode, but I'm glad that has changed.

Valentina is seriously boring. While Aja's meltdown was a bit intense and bitter... it's what I was thinking lol.

My best friend thinks she's getting the Adore "Ru's Pet Project" edit. lol

I dunno yet. Aja's young, but she doesn't have the charisma or character that past Hot Mess gurls who made it far had.

I'm just not sure about Aja. I feel like she definitely gives her 100%, but I'm not sure her 100% is what the judges are looking for. Idk, it's a weird one. She's competent, but does she have that "it" thing?

By the way, Katya and Ginger were incredible tonight. Ginger sang a song live with her friend/assistant, lip synced to Hello by Adele, and one other number that was just like a medley of pop music. Katya opened with Read U Wrote u, but when it got to Roxxxy's verse the music just ended and she said she would spare us the final part fjekfjskxmmammdl

She then did The Same Parts (I was GAGGED), and finally Cover Girl.

They were both so good and looked so amazing, it was my first ever drag show and my first time in a gay club too. I really think drag is just about the most punk thing a guy can do.

Not a fan of that result at all.

Kimora's costume and character were the definition of safe. Uninspired but definitely not awful. How can Farrah cruise on through with one of the lowest effort outfits ever?

I can't disagree with Aja winning that lip sync, but I really wish she or Farrah had gone home. Kimora had more to offer than either of them.


Aja in particular is just really not doing it for me. She's rough around the edges. And that's because she's one giant rough patch.

I can't get over how bad Aja's makeup is. A lot of young queens I know here in Chicago do that same weird harsh makeup and it just looks so busted and unfinished. Buy a fucking beauty blender, you look like the lady gremlin from Gremlins 2.

I didn't like Kimora but I thought her exit and speech on Untucked were super cute.

I wasn't feeling Trinity initially but this episode made me respect her a lot, she's smart and driven. I can see how she's a big pageant winner, she doesn't fuck around.

Valentina is getting a top three edit already and it sort of seems like they're setting her up as a victim of bullying a la Jinkx, but you can't fuck with how polished she is, it's really impressive IMO. Also I'm living for the fact she's wearing a beret in her interviews. She's kooky!

So far I'm a bit disappointed with the season. None of the queens have shown a distinct interesting personality and they are all still very bland for me. I didn't watch any of the previews so I still have a hard time even following who's who. Hopefully it gets more interesting when the bottom of the bottom queens have gone (so far so good on the elimination side of things).

What the fuck was up with the runway lighting? Girlfriend and I could barely see shit when they were walking and it was really annoying because I never got detail on their outfits. Fire whoever thought purple blaring at you was a smart choice.

Also holy damn at that lip sync. Aja nailed it but this untucked makes me better.

On a side note, I'm finding going from season 7 to season 9 has been very grating. There is no comedy, no characters outside of Nina. No one has given a shit about their drag character and it feels almost like season 1 again.

So this is going to sound awful, but have they changed the lighting or something? Because one thing we've noticed is how bad a lot of the contestant's skin is in this season - and for most of them, the make up isn't covering it up either.

That was certainly one of the worst challenges and runways the show has ever had. Awkward, sloppy, unfunny. I appreciated getting a little sewing time in the workroom for once, but the show has been edited down to so little content that it's felt like I'm watching everything in fast-forward during the past 3-4 seasons.

Yas! Shea's skin isn't great but I think she does a really good job of covering it when she's in full face. These kids need to start a post-drag skincare regimen or they're gonna look busted when they hit 30.

Was there even one shot of that lipsync where Kimora was mouthing the correct lyrics? Between that crappy sidekick and the lipsync this was deserved. But I would've either had Farrah go against Kimora or have a triple lipsync. Michelle welling up with shade was the funniest bit of the show.

Trinity surprised me, she was funny, had some good puns, her look wasn't exciting but it was all put together well. Shea's character was funny too, I thought she was taking inspiration from the voice over at the start of Quantum Leap, or the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull from He-Man. Valentina continues to shine and looks like front runner material so far to me. Her and Nina definately.

Depending on the next few eliminations I feel like Ru is going to bring Kimora back when it's down to like 5 or 6 queens. But then at the same time since no one was eliminated on the first episode there might not even be anyone brought back.

Tbh I'd rather have no eliminated queen return this season. Cynthia coming back already fulfills our "twist" for the season.
