The second episode of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 4 had a lot to live up to, especially when we looked back at last week's ferocious, RuPocalyptic premiere (you know we watched it again, girl). So, did "WTF: Wrestling's Trashiest Fighters" live up to the hype? Let's put on our reading glasses...
- Chad Michaels, Phi Phi O'Hara, and Willam rocked the badonkadonk challenge, channeling fierce butt-implant realness. Well, not really, but it made for some hilariously fat asses. The trio's faux apple bottoms earned them the right to select three queens to be a part their respective wrestling teams. Yes, the ladies get to wrestle each other! And Madame LaQueer got picked last. Burn! Well, it's her fault for talking up her busted ankle. Love you, LaQueer, but sometimes you just gotta shut that jabber jaw if you want to be America's Next Drag Superstar. Werq!
- Next up: Training. The queens demonstrated their abilities in the ring under the careful supervision of some of wrestling's hottest male wrestlers — did this episode just get better? Oh, yes. It did. Some of the queens fared better (and tried harder) than others, with LaShauwn Beyond handily earning the title of Wrestling's Most Tiresome Fighter. Spoiler alert! She's going to be in the bottom two.
- Showtime! The queens paired off in their groups of four, pitting ladypair against ladypair. Latrice Royale and Kenya Michaels served it up. And it was delicious. Latrice was the muscle, and Kenya was the crazy. Unfortunately, their group didn't win, so they couldn't be declared the overall winners of the challenge — that honor went to Chad Michaels and... wait for it... Madame LaQueer! Girlfriend turned it out, busted ankle be damned. While neither of them earned immunity for next week, they both went home with some wigs.
- As predicted, LaShauwn ended up in the bottom two, along with The Princess. Neither queen really brought it in the ring, and the judges weren't having their "girly" get-ups. The Princess looked fierce, just not right for this runway, but LaShauwn looked like she squeezed into her best Diana Ross knock-off, soaked herself in glue, and jumped in the ball pit at Chucky Cheese. No shade. Well, a little.
- And then there's the Lip Sync for Your Life; more like Lip Sync for Your Nap! While The Princess's performance was far superior to LaShauwn's, we were less than impressed with both queens. The Princess tried her best, and we could see that she wanted it, which is exactly what you should do when you're in the bottom two. But was LaShauwn lip-syncing or sleepwalking? She really didn't look like she wanted to be there, and Ru noticed. So, LaShauwn was sent packing, and she even agreed that it was time for her to go.
We give the episode three out of five stars. What did you think of the ep?
