RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 lastly delivered the rattling items at this time. After an extended wait and weekly teases, we lastly know what’s happening with the sport inside a sport. It took till Episode 10 to search out out, however we’re right here now. We all know the rating, we all know the gig, we all know the T—and if you don’t know, you’re about to be SPOILED. Okay?
So with out additional ado, because you’ve been saved ready lengthy sufficient, let’s unpack all the ins and outs of this sport inside a sport.
What’s the sport inside a sport on Drag Race All Stars 6?
As ruvealed in Episode 10 of All Stars 6, the sport inside a sport is RuPaul’s Secret Rudemption Lip Sync Smackdown—which is actually Final Likelihood Kitchen however with lip syncs. In the event you’re a Prime Chef fan, then you understand precisely what I’m speaking about. If not, right here’s what’s up!
It’s fairly simple: the primary two eradicated queens lip sync in opposition to one another. The winner strikes on and battles the third eradicated queen. Then the winner of that battle strikes ahead and lip syncs in opposition to the fourth eradicated queen, the fifth, and so forth. and so forth. After which the queen who wins the lip sync in opposition to the final eradicated queen (Eureka, from final week’s episode) will get again into the sport.
Who gained the sport inside a sport? Who gained RuPaul’s Secret Rudemption Lip Sync Smackdown?
We have been all fools to suppose that we’d end this episode and know who the returning queen is. For some purpose, episodes of Drag Race have to finish on cliffhangers although there isn’t any doubt that we’re all tuning in subsequent week. However no matter! We don’t know who will reenter the competitors, however we all know how the remainder of the lip syncs shook out. The winner is in daring.
- Serena ChaCha vs. Jiggly Caliente
- Jiggly Caliente vs. Silky Nutmeg Ganache
- Silky Nutmeg Ganache vs. Yara Sofia
- Silky Nutmeg Ganache vs. Scarlet Envy
- Silky Nutmeg Ganache vs. A’keria C. Davenport (withdrew)
- Silky Nutmeg Ganache vs. Jan
- Silky Nutmeg Ganache vs. Pandora Boxx
- Silky Nutmeg Ganache vs. Eureka! – TBA
So… wow. For an episode that was all lip syncs, and all however considered one of them that includes the identical queen, what a dynamite experience that was. This episode is de facto Silky’s most interesting hour, particularly contemplating how lackluster her “No Scrubs” lip sync was in Season 11. She’s one half of the notorious “meh”! For Silky to come back again and present out like this in seven back-to-back lip syncs? The nerve! The rudemption has already been had, even when she doesn’t reenter the competitors.
Despite the fact that Silky’s wardrobe malfunction within the last lip sync means Eureka! almost definitely gained, I really suppose each queens ought to reenter the competitors. Is that insanity? Who cares?! Have a double elimination subsequent week! However regardless of the final result, Silky Nutmeg Ganache is now in a Corridor of Fame of her very personal for going this tough.
Was the sport inside a sport definitely worth the wait?
I’m going with sure, if solely as a result of Silky actually turned it out and gave us seven totally totally different performances. That is drag excellence proper there. And in truth, that is one of the best methodology for bringing somebody again into the competitors that we’ve seen throughout Drag Race’s 200 seasons. Previously, queens have returned after profitable one problem or… for no purpose in any respect. The Rudemption Lip Sync Smackdown fixes that!
This format really makes reentering the competitors onerous and never based mostly on a whim or a single win. Take into consideration if Silky does reenter the competitors and make it to the finale after initially going dwelling third. Yeah, she missed six challenges—however she nonetheless (on this state of affairs) gained seven lip syncs in a row! That’s wild. It’s onerous to say that Silky—or any future winner of the Rudemption Lip Sync Smackdown, ought to this format be repeated—doesn’t should return in the event that they pull off an epic profitable streak like that. I imply, a number of Prime Chef season winners returned within the finals through Final Likelihood Kitchen after which gained the entire season. It’s not unprecedented!
My solely grievance in regards to the drawn out debut of the sport is that this: Pricey god, Drag Race—that is what Untucked is for! Not like Final Likelihood Kitchen, which is an internet unique or one thing that’s obtainable to observe I don’t know the place, Untucked is an precise tv program that both airs after Drag Race or streams alongside it. Ending every episode of Untucked with a Rudemption Lip Sync battle would really make Untucked important, particularly throughout seasons when the queens aren’t giving the backstage drama (like All Stars 6). A whole lip sync section takes 5 minutes, actually! Perhaps don’t do that for normal seasons, for the reason that finality of “shantay away” makes these lip syncs actually have stakes. However in All Stars? Go for it. Make Rudemption Lip Syncs a part of the All Stars 7 Untucked episodes, please.
All that being mentioned—we’ll discover out who gained the All Stars 6 Secret Rudemption Lip Sync Smackdown when RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 6 returns subsequent Thursday on Paramount+.
