Roxxxy can go fuck herself. God forbid someone be honest about their feelings and insecurities. Not everyone is comfortable being an arrogant prick. What a super massive gapping asshole.

I can't believe Ru spared them both... Was so waiting for her to send Alyssa home. Girl is broken beyond repair. As for Jinkx, she was fabulous as always, all those other girls just be jealous.
I guess next week I can hope will be the last for that overbite mushed mouth hag..

Agreed with @1. Roxxxy started out strong and fairly inoffensive- if a bit boring, forgettable, and full of herself. But as this season has progressed, and Jinkx has started to barrel her way past the competition to become, in my opinion, one of the best, most likeable and talented queens this show has ever had, Roxxxy has gone from fairly boring to outright, jealous, rude, juvenile bitch who has been attacking Jinkx at every opportunity. At this point she's reaching Coco levels of delusional. It was really telling and extremely appropriate to see the two eventually pair off together in the Untucked to have a Jealous-Of-Jinkx-Mean-Spirited-Bitch-Fest-of-Patheticness.

I was so ready for her to leave this episode too. And then she goes and does what she has been accusing Jinkx (wrongly, of course) of doing: shrewdly using a tragic part of his past as an ace-in-the-hole sob-story to avoid elimination. And the sad part? It worked.

My current top three: Alaska, Detox, and Jinkx with Jinkx taking the crown. However I have a hunch that they will be keeping Roxxxy around for his bitchiness so it may end up as Jinkx, Alaska and Roxxxy. Regardless my biggest desire is to see Roxxxy and Coco leave (because they are both terrible people. Maybe not Phi Phi levels of sociopath, but they are both terrible people nevertheless and just. . . Limited.) I also want to see Ivy leave because- who is that again?

So yeah- I really hope to see those three go bye bye. And I'm completely team Jinkx at this point. I can't find a single thing I don't love about her.

I think everyone wants to see a lip sync showdown between Coco and Alyssa. The producers won't let either of them go until it happens.

Anyone else think some of the girls were being fed prewritten jokes in this episode, especially in the mini challenge? I know they can all read without help, but some zingers seemed a bit too polished.

Um, poor Alyssa's a bit touched. I feel like the whole issue with Jinxx being insecure was made for tv. These queens know they're being watched, and want screen time so they will create drama where there is none. They know Jinxx got this and are going down with claws out.

Jinkx is the only one with the talent to be a professional entertainer (IMHO).

And I am starting to wonder if some the stuff being said in front of the camera is being fed to them. After all, it is in front of the camera for all the world to see. Got to have lots of drama to make it interesting.

@4, I think they're just ready for it. Like they know the Snatch Game will be every season, they come into the competition knowing that the Library is gonna open. A smart queen will be thinking of reads from day 1.

I agree with Dry Dock. And oh my God, Jinkx is in a class above the rest of the competition.

Jesus! You bitches don't get it huh? They ARE family. Jinxx is killing it but it doesn't mean the other girls have to be bad human beings. Reflexive T is bad for your shade.

Of course we LOVE Jinkx, she really is fantastic. But I am cautiously optimistic she will win. In past seasons the favorite queens on the show don't win and go on to be more popular than the queens who do win. Like Pandora Boxx and Latrice Royale, Jujubee and even Shannel.

I would love Seattle's own Jinkx Monsoon to win, she is the real deal and we love our drag queens in Seattle!

Fuck LogoTV. All videos of RuPaul are "unavailable from your location".

@7: True, but only Jinxkx and a few others were ready for Snatch Game. And while you can plan a Snatch Game costume, good reads require spending time with the other contestants and learning their eccentricities. Not saying they were all prewritten but I wouldn't be surprised if producers gave a few queens "ideas" for funny reads.

I tend to agree with Sissoucat. I think this show belongs on normal cable TV because it's way better than the other slew of reality crap. Unfortunately, most cable packages don't carry LOGO in their basic cable TV package and therefore lots of the Queens haven't hit mainstream stardom as they should.

However, I'm willing to bet this is the highest grossest show on LOGO so there's no way they will be letting them go anytime soon!
