Good Queen Fun Season 5, Episode 6

Hey all, Gina here filling in for Robyn tonight. So without further adieux, let's talk queens! Tonight's episode started with a disco-boobed, horn-hooded Chris March presenting the night's challenge - and boy was he a sight for sore eyes! The designers were tasked to create an over-the-top, theatrical looking outfit for a group of drag queens that suited their very distinct personalities. I loved these ladies and their introductions - they were so much more entertaining than the usual bunch. And just to put it out there, if I had to pick a drag name, it probably wouldn't be as fun and creative as Farrah Moans or Sharon Needles, but at the same rate, it also wouldn't be as lame as Blayne's Neonlicious. So after the designers chatted with their models and bought endless yards of fabric at Mood to create their larger than life designs, off they went to work. When their models returned for an intial garment fitting, a bit of drama set in with Suede and his lady, Hedda Lettuce. Granted it wasn't my favorite in the bunch, Lettuce definitely showed her snip when she asked Suede if the reason he made gloves was because he was "too lazy" to make sleeves. Talk about ballsy. It was hard to tell what some of the models thought about their designs, but Tim Gunn and Chris March weren't holding back. Blayne took Tim's "it looks like something out of a gay Jurassic Park" as a compliment, of course. They showed concern for Daniel's snoozer of an outfit, thought Jerell's was a bit too classy and adored Joe's pink sailor number. Once it came time for the runway, Suede took a moment right before the show to have a heart-to-heart with Lettuce about her attitude. But, alas, the two kissed and made up - literally. When it's finally time to see the finished product, the designers gear up to be ripped apart by the usual suspects, as well as by celebrity guest judge RuPaul. Kenley's liquid silver, Blayne's droopy wings, Suede's lettuce patch, Stella's black-n-plaid and Leanne's funky cubist were all safe. Then came the judges faves: Terri's samurai rocker which was definitely on point with the challenge, Korto's fire dress (which I think should have won with that awesome detachable skirt) and Joes pink Love Boat look that had the "candy-covering belt." The winner, in a ironic twist, was Joe - the man's man who could only make it through by "pretending he was making a Halloween costume for his daughters." Then came the bottom of the barrel. Jerell's too normal number, Daniel's "I didn't want my drag outfit to be gaudy" outfit and Keith's forever-fringed mini dress. Turns out Daniel's missing the boat was the worst of the 3 as far as the judges were concerned. I could have dealt with his or Keith's going home since they both bore Nina me, but I would have been sad if Jerell had to pack it in. What's your take on tonight's episode?
