RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 Episode 2 Review
Here we go again! This week, we met the second set of seven queens fighting for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar! I’m going to try to keep this short, as I have to go be butch at my job rather shortly!
ESPOILERS AHEAD FOR THOSE THAT HAVEN’T SEEN THE EPISODE
BIANCA DEL RIO: Her entrance look was cute, nothing great, but biiiitch do I live for her. She knows how to read without being nasty (a la Phi Phi & Roxxxy Andrews) and it’s hilarious! I’ve been watching a lot of her videos on Youtube and I would love for her to come to my local club to host a drag show, it’d be eeeeverything! I love the rasp in her voice lolol. Her runway look, to me, wasn’t wonderful and I don’t think should have won. I think two other queens had a better outfit, but oh well, what can I do about it NOTHING I TELL YOU. Oh and I guess I should mention what the main challenge was lol: they each had a different box representing different types of parties and they had to make an outfit with the stuff in the boxes. Bianca got luau, I think. I’m not a huge fan of her eye makeup. Her crease definitely needs a little more blending. It kinda looks like she has swollen eyelids. Anyway, I can’t wait to see her throughout the season ‘cause this bitch is going to be entertainting!
TRINITY K BONET: Let’s be real here.. nobody expected Miss Trinity to stand out. She does have a boring personality, but she is fiiiierce. I loved her entrance look, it was glamorous with a touch of edginess. Has anyone else noticed that she wears fake teeth when in drag? ‘cause her barbecue got cancelled as a boy! In the main challenge, Trinity got a princess party box and she turned. it. out. I loved the futuristic take she had on the outfit, her makeup was gorg! I didn’t mind the cardboard neck piece, but she did look a lot better without it on. I LOLed when Michelle called it a pizza box because my drag mother has used a pizza box to make headpieces out of hahahh. Whatever works, right?! Also, she’s one of the two queens that I feel should’ve won this challenge over Bianca. Let’s see how well Trinity does in the acting challenge!
MILK: I feel her type of drag is definitely different but she has it polished! Her entrance look gave me life with the toilet paper stuck to her shoe, and that outfit is definitely something I would wear! For her runway, she got the Toga Party box and biiitch did she give me a look! I do agree with Santino that maybe she shouldn’t have done the beard, but hey! She still looked good! and she’s tall as fuck. She’s the second queen I think should’ve won.. maybe just a little more than Trinity tbh.
JOSLYN FOX: Joslyn was okayyy. She’s not spectacular and she’s not terrible. Her giggle is a tad bit annoying, not gonna lie. Her entrance look was very simple, nothing to gag over. Her runway look (quinceanera.. or as Trinity says, quinceaneta) was just too much! I compared her to my boyfriend ‘cause when my boyfriend does drag he just likes to pile on the jewelry and anything else that fits lolol, luckily he’s been editing his looks a bit more lately. Anyway, I don’t feel Joslyn is going to last too much longer, but we shall seeee!
COURTNEY ACT: Courtney is beautiful, but I honestly don’t see the fascination toward her. Her entrance look was good, she looked amazing and I like how down to earth she seems.. but I did not like her runway look. Everyone says she has this amazing body, and I agree, but as a boy. In drag, I feel she should pad because her body is just a brick and does not look feminine like Carmen’s in Season 3 or even Willam’s. The outfit itself was very basic and she was slipping just like Laganja was last week. I know she’ll be around a while and I know she has some fierce looks up her sleeve, so I can’t wait to see!
DARIENNE LAKE: Darienne is everything! I had seen an episode of Ricky Lake she came out in and I’ve loved her since! She’s hilarious and her entrance look was very cute. She got the St. Patrick’s Day Party Box and girl… no. She could have done sooo much better with that, but it was just very pedestrian.. and I don’t even think pedestrians would wear a skirt like that!
MAGNOLIA CRAWFORD: I was definitely rooting for Magnolia since the Meet the Queens video since everyone else seemed to have dismissed her. I don’t mind her nose contour at all. She really reminds me of me in her quirkyness, BUT THAT ALL CHANGED WHEN THE FIRE NATION ATTACKED. and by that I mean her attitude on the runway was not cute at all. She got Hoedown Party and she could’ve done soooo much with that but she was just complaining about how ugly everything in her box was EVEN THOUGH she claims to make really ugly things beautiful. I’ve been wanting to do a performance dressed as a cow and I feel I could’ve turned it more than her, and even if I didn’t, I would’ve tried to sell my personality to keep me in the game! I don’t hate her but I’m very disappointed in her and I’m glad she went home. Oh yeah..
The bottom two were Miss Darienne Lake and, of course, Magnoooolia Crawford. Again, this was a rather lackluster lipsync like last week.. I hope they get more exciting after this ‘cause I have not been impressed in the slightest. Magnolia went home, and I hope she learns from this.. and I’d really like to meet her!
Next week, the two groups finally rejoin and I’m super excited to see what unfolds! As a whole, the two premieres were lacking something that I can’t quite put my finger on.. but I hope the rest of the season has whatever it is these two episodes were missing. Until next week folks, stay fierce, stay fabulous, stay fresh <3
