RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5, episode 4 summary: “SheMZ”


We are in the middle of a Drag race cold War. Gone are the days of open conflict during which Alexis moves in his makeup chair to give Miz Cracker a direct dressing, or when Derrick moves in her make-up chair to give India a direct dressing (hmmm … I feel a pattern). This episode, our girls are doing their best to display a kindness veneer (in addition to their actual veneers). At the top of the episode, the queens are back in the Werkroom, counting the lipsticks. Lo and behold, Shea discovers that not one but of them of his compatriots All Stars tried to elect him from the island, giving him the second highest number of votes after Mariah. Alexis and Mayhem quickly went to the votes (choosing not to draw a BeBe) and attempt to rotate their votes for Shea as a by-product of their deep and meaningful friendships with Mariah. Why, they just wouldn’t do it dream to send their best friend home! And how dare you even ask! In the confessional, Mayhem openly admits that his strategy has “failed”, but Alexis keeps his cards a little closer to the breastplate. To her credit, Shea buys no explanation from the queen. “These girls have no idea what kind of games I can play,” she said. ” So. Let’s have fun. »GAG!

For this week’s main challenge, the girls must honor one of the country’s most revered journalistic institutions, the backbone of the Fourth State, TMZ. In truth Drag race fashion, queens must improvise a scene of celebrities caught in various scenarios ~ delusional ~ by the network of flirting SheMZ. As a bonus, the ladies also enter the boys’ trail to play the editors of the SheMZ newsroom. It’s a really fun concept, and one of the strongest and most accessible places for an improvisation challenge to date. Unlike last week, I found myself truly engaged in each scene. And as with the actual TMZ, I can confidently say that I would moralize with friends about how SheMZ is exploitative and trash, while watching him behind their backs. Ru renounces any claim and chooses the teams, apparently for maximum dramatic ends: Shea and Alexis; Blair, Jujubee and Miz Cracker; and India and Mayhem.
