7. Mayhem Miller (last week: 4) – ELIMINATED
Sure All Starsthe game does not end when you are sent behind the scenes, and it seems that Chaos forgot that this week. Its nothing going-approach deliberations left the other queens to look for a reason to keep it, while India Ferrah fought tooth and nail to stay. The chaos of performance in the deliberations reminded me of Manila on the island of Luzon in All Stars 4: While Manila relaxed, Latrice Royale campaigned, and she ultimately stayed. I’m sure it’s nasty to campaign against a friend of your friends, this format of rewards from those who are willing to work hard.
Interestingly, if you watched Untuckedyou know that Blair sainte-Claire and Shea Butter Pouring actually thought Mayhem has scope and India on stage, and she has been responsible for making them more from India. It was not until India began its campaign that the group changed their mind and decided to send Chaos home. It just seemed to do with the competition by the end.
6. Ferrah India (last week: 7)
Honestly, when I saw India fell to the bottom for the third time in a row, I was sure it was ruined. Her first week of victory could not take her so far, when she was always the same scores in the competition. (Again, I think these notes are therefore consistent as we have had three consecutive weeks of team challenges, but that does not change the fact that India is not becoming an interpreter in a group.) I’m really taking this time to get to know India better than it has gotten particularly this season than it has ever done in Season 3, but I think its time is pretty much in place. If she hadn’t fought the way she had this week, I think she would have disappeared from home via Chaos.
5. Blair sainte-Claire (last week: 3)
Due to last week’s super arbitrary winning / winning team from Queen Split, Blair has only received criticism Once this season. It blends in the background, and that is not helped by its relative lack of confessionals. His biggest moment of this week outside Untucked to talk about his impaired driving in the workshop. Otherwise, it just feels like Blair doesn’t really have space in the narrative, despite the fact that it generally does well in competition. I will not be surprised if it has been a start shock in the next week or two. What would be the mirror of his trajectory on Season 10: A mixture of safety and high scores, then an elimination his first time in the background.
4. Alexis Mateo (last week: 2)
I’m a little surprised Alexis was weak this week! I liked the sound of the track, and I really enjoyed its performance in the challenge. While I get what the judges said about Alexis walking on shea lines, I don’t think it comes at the expense of their performance – in fact, I thought the chaos only got better. When she was kept on the track for criticism, I was sure she was going to be one of the scorers, and I even thought she could win.
Alexis seems a little undervalued in the competition to date, although she continues to be a focal point in the narrative. I’ll say it, I really like this frenemy relationship of her and Shea butter which is going well on now. It has been a while since we had a pair of queens who openly and willingly overshadow each other while still working well together. I hope the two of them stick around for a while because it’s a lot of fun to watch.
3. Shea Sheave (last week: 6)
A nice recovery to fall in the background, Shea took advantage of this opportunity to be voted against to really raise the drama of numbering. In addition to his delicious new dynamic with Alexis, who provided some of the biggest laughs in this episode, Shea was also happy to vote against this week’s Chaos. “I feel like it would be rude on my part not to return the favor!” I love this flair for the spectacular Shea Butterfly – it makes her not only a competitor, but a super convincing TV-reality presence. She has a star on many levels, and she doesn’t hesitate to remind us that.
2. Jujubee (last week: 1)
Juju broke the winners of this week’s curse that sent India and Shea butter to the bottom immediately after their victories. She was the only other high scorer on the track, and even if I doubted she had won a second in a row, it would have been fun to suddenly see her go on a streak after never winning in her other two seasons. I liked Juju in the challenge; she didn’t get as much to wipe out jokes, but for me, she had the funniest character (loved hearing her skinny in her Boston accent).
She is certainly elevating her tracks from where they have been in her previous seasons, but Carson Kressley is entitled this week: She always needs a little something more to take a good look at a tall. Who lacks punch in his outfits is the only thing that backs him, like an artist and a presence on the show, Juju is excellent this season.
1. Miz Cracker (last week: 5)
It’s a big win for Cracker this week, that not only did she win the challenge, but earn all of $ 20,000 in tip cash despite tying in lip sync against Morgan m. and even mcmichael. (I guess the show doesn’t want to play with the mechanics by giving it half the pot and having half rolling, but it’s worth noting in the past All Stars the ties, the queens split the $ 10,000 tip evenly.) His Cracker catapults victory in the top echelon of queens this season after several weeks of just safe or high scoring.
I’m interested in seeing where his plot goes from here, though. It seems like she’s rocked the “in her head” tale enough from Season 10, and the drama we heard about Cracker’s involvement in this episode was a very vague story about Blair potentially trying to take it out. The treatment of this story intrigues me more than the story itself: Pirate has a lot of talking about it, while Blair got not a confessional. We witness the story through his eyes, which shows an investment in production is part of his character and perspective. I had a doubt Cracker is coming home anytime soon.
