Last night was the second to last episode of RuPaul's Drag Race. The final three were revealed: Raja, Manila Luzon and Alexis Mateo (as foretold by my crystal drag ball). This is Raja's to lose.
In this episode, Yara Sofia suffered a breakdown in the middle of her lip sync. No wonder there, due to the weight of her costume. She had to take it all off (literally).
I do agree with the judge's criticism. The dress was too much.
Alexis Mateo, who was also in the bottom two, sported a mermaid inspired dress. She also wanted to look like a beauty pageant participant (no surprise there either).
Raja's evening gown was stunning. But once again, she cried without tears (remember last episode, when she was in the bottom two and RuPaul announced that Raja will stay in the competition?) . Girl, teach me how to do that (maybe she does not want her make-up to run).
Her cocktail dress, on the other hand, was horrific. If she only had a heart (and cry with some tears).
Finally, Manila Luzon won the main stage challenge. She used an asian inspired gown and image for the gazillion time.
Of the final three, Raja has the most versatility. But, in my humble opinion, when she tries to look pretty, she actually looks like a man in women's clothes. Manila and Alexis have the same problem: they are one look wonders. Do not take them out of their comfort zones. For this, I think Raja has the edge to win it all.
Next week, to lengthen this series, a recap episode! RuPaul's Drag Race does not want to end.
