RuPaul’s Drag Race 08:06

Well, after last week’s fiasco that was Snatch Game 2016, we have a surprisingly good episode. And I say surprising because it’s the dreaded makeover challenge, and they have a tendency of going south real quick (*cough* Justice for Pandora Boxx! *cough*).

The Drag Race Scoreboard

Yes children, it is back! It has been a long time coming but it is back and it is here!

I know, I know, I have been a bad recapper and kept you waiting but people I am busy. What with concert season and wedding season at The Day Job(s), plus my editorial schedule for this blog and that blog, I barely have time to write.

So without further ado, I throw on the Nate Silver drag, and present the return of…

Bullet Points – RuPaul’s Drag Race 05:10

“You better sissy that walk, soldier!”

Well, we’re nearing the home stretch and the time has come for the annual make over challenge. Usually at this point in the show, RuPaul will bring back a former contestant to wreak havoc on the remaining girls. This year she chose not to and instead had the final five be a true final five.
