Welcome to the Silky Nutmeg Ganache Variety Hour! Actually, it is time to ru-veal the enigmatic RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars “game within a game” that the eliminated queens were invited to play.
Carson introduces the “RuPaul’s Secret Rudemption Lip Sync Smackdown”, pitting the queens against each other and bringing the winner back into the running for the crown. Needless to say, the top 4 are not amused and Trinty K. Bonet is definitely giving us Grumpy Cat realness (but she has every right to be cranky.)
Say what you want, but I loved seeing so much lip syncing. No dressmaking, no singing and no acting – just what the queens are best known for. That being said, let’s take a look at the match-ups.
Our first to eliminated queens, Serena Cha Cha and Jiggly Caliente perform “Free Your Mind” by En Vogue. Jiggly not only looks incredible, but she wins the lip sync.
Jiggly takes on Silky Nutmeg Ganache with “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper and Silky positively owns this, pulling the equivalent of a mini-bar out of her cleavage and mixes up a cocktail while she performs. This begins the Silky win-a-thon.
Silky’s next opponent is Yara Sofia. Despite playing a guitar solo on her toned legs, our Echa Pa’lante queen couldn’t beat out Silk with the good milk to Exposé’s hit “Point of No Return.”
They say “looking good is the best revenge” and Scarlet Envy returned to the runway looking positively dazzling in a bejeweled catsuit and huge hair. She and Silky battled to “Song for the Lonely” by Cher and once again, Silky emerged victorious.
The next eliminated queen A’Keria C. Davenport did not take the stage. She opted not to play Ru’s little game. And, despite not having a competitor, Silky wanted to go ahead and perform Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” with a “split personality” look.
A’Keria further discussed her decision to leave with Michelle Visage on “Whatcha Packin’?”
Silky and Jan rocked out to Pat Benatar’s “Heartbreaker.” Jan tore up the stage (literally) but Silky magically produced a guitar for a shredding solo and won the match.
Finally, our beloved Pandora Boxx is back and she looks absolutely amazing. Of course, she’s just no match for Hurricane Silky. Their performance of “Focus” by Ariana Grande weas a fun one though.
Lastly, Eureka O’Hara! returns to perform Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone.” Our elephant queen was having some wig issues, but Silky’s major wardrobe malfunction may have cost her the crown.
Of course, in true Drag Race fashion, Ru did not reveal the winner, which again brought out Trinity’s inner Grumpy Cat.
So, it’s pretty obvious that the Reverend Doctor Silky Nutmeg Ganache is this week’s MVP. I am so glad she got this Ru-demption, because she’s a fiercely entertaining queen. Next week, the queens bring their one-woman shows to the stage in the “Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent Monologues” and we find out who makes it to the finale.
Until then, just remember that if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an “amen”?
