Oooh girl! Trust the Dutchess. It ain’t over just yet baby. It’s time for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 Revenge of the Queens!
In our last episode Phi Phi was going off on Alyssa. She’s getting away with stuff because she’s Alyssa. She threw Katya & Roxxxy under the bus. Yadda, yadda, yadda, diarrhea of the mouth.
Cue the lights! See them eliminated queens with them hands. Through the ‘mirror.’ Roxxxy likens this situation to talking smack about someone, not realizing they’re on the line via 3-way.
The eliminated queens re-enter the workroom & show off their transformation looks. (Anyone else underwhelmed? They all would’ve gotten read – Tatianna’s transformation was her dress turning into a bra & skirt. Really? That’s it?)
All T, all shade – Phi Phi goes in on Alyssa, saying that Alyssa is playing the victim. Then Ginger goes in because Alyssa sent Ginger home. So Alyssa tried to explain it again, to which Ginger replied that she wouldn’t have let Katya go home, even if Alyssa had chosen Katya to go. Ginger felt like Katya deserved to stay.
Phi Phi will not let it go. She’s insisting that Alyssa is playing the victim and twisting Phi Phi’s words. Alyssa doesn’t want Phi Phi to be weaksauce. If she’s going to be a bitch, be a bitch. To sum up:
We grown folk, but ok. – Alyssa Edwards
So back to the actual Race. Announcement: RuPaul is hatless. I repeat RuPaul is hatless!
The queens have to pair up for a comedy challenge – an eliminated queen with a still-competing queen. The top 2 returning queens will lip sync for a chance to re-enter the competition and eliminate one of the remaining queens. And of course this comedy show will be in front of an audience of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums. The eliminated queens get to pick their preferred current queen.
Alyssa & Alaska
Ginger & Katya
Tatianna & Detox (choices!)
Coco & Phi Phi
Ooh a twist on the “last girl picked” situation. Roxxxy doesn’t get picked. Instead of that being a wha-wha moment it’s a “Let’s give Roxxxy ultimate power” moment. If Roxxxy wins the comedy challenge, she just wins. And she gets to pick the eliminated queen who gets to stay AND she gets to send one of the bottom queens home.
Coco realizes that she may have been mad at Roxxxy, but Phi Phi won’t stop talking to her about how mad she is at Alyssa. Phi Phi talks about how she is almost letting Alyssa bring her to an unhappy place. It’s bringing Coco to an unhappy place because now she’s in the middle of this feud. But Coco’s done traveled this road before & she doesn’t want to take that detour again.
Alyssa chose Alaska to set things right from last week. Alaska, being classy, decides that they should structure their routine around Alyssa’s strengths, which is spouting off Alyssa-isms. It’s a smart strategy, demonstrated by their conversation.
What did Alyssa learn this week?
She learned that it’s Cliff’s Notes, not clef notes. Yes Alyssa, just like the name. She doesn’t know how Alaska knew that. Oh, Alyssa.
So Phi Phi tries to “make amends” with Alyssa. She does so by saying “if you ask Alaska, she would tell you that Sharon threw me under the bus.” Alyssa basically ends things by saying “I don’t want to fight with you” and then Phi Phi asks for a hug. Awww! Or not?
That hug was like Obama hugging Donald Trump. Uh-uh. I ain’t buying it. – Coco
Time for the show!

Did anyone see any other queens? There were a few in the background that were harder to see for me, so I wasn’t sure who they were. Tell me who I’m missing below.
Roxxxy Andrews & Phi Phi O’Hara are in the bottom. Ginger & Coco are out yet again. It’s Alyssa vs Tatianna in the lip sync. They will decide who goes home.
Back in the workroom, Phi Phi insists that she’s not going to beg to remain in the competition. Alyssa & Tatianna think ego is holding Phi Phi back. Phi Phi eventually does talk to both queens. Phi Phi tells Alyssa she doesn’t feel like she needs to beg. Alyssa reminds Phi Phi of her fans that might look at Phi Phi’s decision as giving up. Now when Phi Phi talks to Tatianna, Phi Phi talks about how strong her work has been in the competition up until this point.
The exact same things Alyssa used for criteria to save Katya over Ginger. The thing that sent Phi Phi into a tizzy with Alyssa & started the whole spat. Girl, really? To further nail that coffin shut, Phi Phi tells Tatianna she was funny, but Detox was really hard to hear, so Phi Phi was worried for her.
What Phi Phi doesn’t know, is that Tatianna knows Phi Phi was talking smack about Tatianna to Detox.
Life advice from Tatianna in the confessional: If you’re gonna play a game girl, play it right.
It’s a lip sync for your LIFE (and it showed)!
After an amazing lip sync, Tatianna gets the love from Mama Ru. She’s surprised.
But then Ru says Alyssa Edwards in that way that indicates that maybe both of them are staying. Yep! Both Alyssa and Tatianna get to stay in the competition.
So they BOTH get to eliminate one of the bottom queens.
Did they choose different queens, or were they on the same page?
Who’s going home? Alyssa has selected Phi Phi to go home. Tatianna has selected Phi Phi as well. So only Phi Phi will be eliminated. Twice over. The grown up in her decides to not accept a hug from Alyssa. She also wonders if she can sell her RuPaul statue for $10,000.
Bye Phi Phi. I hope the bitterness can leave you soon.
Did anyone think Roxxxy should’ve gone? Anyone?
