Stacy Layne Matthews left us last week, thank goodness. She wasn’t on par with the other ladies at all. This week we start with a mini challenge, that is sort of about “reading”. I think they are like roasting each other? People call Delta all sorts of fat, Raja gets called old in many different ways, thankfully someone comments on Yara’s crazy contacts, and mostly it is isn’t funny. I never really find roasting amusing, though, so I don’t know.
This leads into the challenge of the week, which is a stand up comedy performance. The ladies must create a drag look to go with the routines. They plan their shows, and they get the opportunity to show Rita Rudner some of their stuff before the show. She gives each of them feedback, but we don’t see much because they are saving their acts for later. Carmen has nothing prepared and doesn’t seem to understand that she needs to do so. As the challenge nears, Delta becomes increasingly worried about her performance.
Ru greets us on the mainstage looking gorgeous with straight hair. I usually prefer the curls, but this look is great. Guest judges this week are Rita Rudner and comedienne Arden Myrin (of Mad TV fame, I am told). They bring some live audience members into the mainstage area, and the show begins. Break down of each performance below!
