RuPaul’s Drag Race Recap: Season 5; Ep3 Draggle Rock

  1. This week’s episode is all about children  and with Serena Cha Cha this is no kid’s game. This episode sees the rivalry between Coco Montrese and Alyssa Edwards take another step forward.
  2. After seeing Serena leave none of the girls seemed to shed a tear. In this pack of wolves there is no room for a yappie puppy.

    This week’s first task was to drag up children mannequins for Ru’s own Drag Beauty Pagent. This would have been the perfect time for America’s favourite Honey Boo Boo to make her Drag Race debut. Unfortunately no such luck.
  3. Though the winning drag princess did seem to take a leaf out of Honey Boo Boo’s play book.
  4. Proud parents Lineysha Sparks and Alaska got to become team leaders for the main task. For this week’s main task the two teams had to come up with a kid’s tv show with some no-so-subtle innuendos and Drag jokes. Like Sesame street if the creators of South Park and thought of it first.
  5. Alaska chose Detox (no surprise), Roxxxy Andrews (again no surprise-guess Ro-Laska-Tox hasn’t quite broken down yet), Vivienne Pinay, Monica Beverly Hillz, and Alyssa who was picked last. This team went for a farm-yard hill-billy theme with lots of cocks to play around with and shade to throw.
  6. In Lineysha’s team was Honey Mahogany, Coco, Jinkx Monsoon, Ivy Winters, and Jade Jolie. They chose to do a food based tv show with lots of things to suck, blow, toss, and lick (I mean ice-cream and bananas of course!).
  7. The shows were filmed infront of RuPaul and it quickly became clear were the strengths and flaws were for each show. While Detox and Roxxxy showed their great comedic timing, Ru was less than impressed with Alaska who didn’t drag up, and Vivienne and Monica who  lacked the high energy needed to pull off the gags.
  8. However, at least Alaska group got a few laughs. Lanyesha’s appeared to completely bomb. The jokes often weren’t funny and Coco played a ventriloquies doll too accurately and was completely lifeless.
  9. Now time for the runway and this time it’s all about being pretty in pink! Guests judges were Paulina Porizkova, the Czech model/actress, and Coco (I haven’t the faintest idea who she is either).

    But before they can all strut their stuff there is finally a bust up between Coco and Alyssa. I know it’s only the third episode, but I’ve been dying to know what the story is behind the feud. But we only hear the tiniest bit of the war.
    Turns out Alyssa was originally crowned Miss Gay America, but she was somehow dethroned and Coco took over. Coco said: “Legally I had to do it”, but doesn’t yet say why. When they try to sort it out Coco starts to cry and confesses how bad she felt at the time. She said: “It! Was! Pure! Hell! How would you feel if you were standing on stage with a crown on your head, singing your song, and someone yells out, ‘You ain’t the real Miss America anyway!’? I had to smile and wave. In the inside, I am torn. I almost lost my relationship because of that whole thing. That whole thing turned my world upside down.” However, Alyssa was having none of it and accused Coco of saying things behind her back, which only made the situation worse. It was left frustratingly unresolved for another episode. The producers really need to hurry this along.
  10. soo ready for RuPaul producers to stop making this entire season about Alyssa and Coco’s drama because I could not care less
  11. ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ react: Alyssa Edwards and Coco Montrese’s beef is revealed (sort of)…and it’s lame
  12. When it came down to the cat walk the winners for me had to be Lineysha (always a safe bet) and also Ivy Winters and (surprisingly) Jade.

    After the walks we got to see the tv shows and all earlier predictions were right. The panel hated the fact Alaska wasn’t in drag, but loved Detox as a chicken and Roxxxy as a salad tosser. They were also left predictably stoney faced after Lineysha’s team’s show. Only the ever bouncy Jinkx was seen as a good thing.
  13. This week’s winner was Detox, while the bottom two were Monica and Coco. As seems to be the trend at this stage of the series it was obvious who was going home. Coco completely trumped Monica, who despite being a Drag Race first as an openly transitioning woman, went home.
    Do you think Monica was the right person to go home? Who would you like to see leave next week? Let me know in the comments below.

One response to “RuPaul’s Drag Race Recap: Season 5; Ep3 Draggle Rock

  1. I really wanted to see Honey Mahogany, because to me she’s simply a talking and annoying waste of space on the show, but I saw her and Vivienne go home. Vivienne is a very fishy queen, but she sits on pretty, so she kinda deserved to go home, but I never thought she would go down with Mahogany. Seriously. Cut down on the embarrassing queens, Ru! They actually DECREASE viewer ratings.
