Matt, I've made some decisions

I like (from most to least): Bianca, Courtney, Ben, Milk, Darienne, Adore, Joslyn

I don't like or I even hate (from most to least): Gia, Trinity, Laganja

I didn't like Gia since the first episode but this untucked just made me hate her a lot more. Also I was on the fence about Laganja, but this untucked helped me make my mind. I'm glad that her parents accept her but her unsoluble need for attention raises a red flag. She had her moment and that was fine, but letting Bianca's comment get to her so easily just disappointed me so much. She could have handled that a lot better with some maturity. By now they/she should know Bianca's style and Bianca even did say she's happy about Laganja's parents accepting her.

Gia is on the bottom of my list right now..

It goes like this for me, from love to hate

Milk, Bianca, Ben, Courtney, Joslyn, Darienne, Laganja, Trinity, Adore, Gia

The thing I love about this season is that it's episode 4 and everyone is doing well. It's like All stars pretty much. If this was any other season, April would've been safe. It just goes to show how high the bar is set. You can't make little mistakes. You have to go above and beyond in every challenge or you'll be in the bottom. Courtney's Win was really deserved. She made me feel like I was actually in a musical. Ben was giving me phantom of the opera. I'm really starting to like Joslyn more. She's sort of pulling an Alyssa Edwards where I don't like her at first but she is slowly growing on me, except Joslyn is a lot easier to like. The way she handled herself in untucked with Gia was just perfect. I have so much respect for her now. Bianca's facial expressions during that entire argument were perfect. When talking about drag race, I find myself forgetting Adore even exists. If she didn't have that "personality" to back her up, she would've been gone a while ago. It's only episode four and it feels like episode eight because EVERYONE IS BRINGING IT.

Bianca, Ben, Milk, Joslyn, Darienne, Courtney, Trinity, Laganja, Adore, Gia. The last 4 I don't like at all so any order is fine.

You're right Matt. I didn't realise it before but yeah, everyone is doing really well in the challenges. In previous seasons people tended to stand out for doing well in challenges, whereas this season people stand out for not doing so well because they all seem to do such a great job at these challenges. Courtney was indeed so perfect in that challenge. The way she moved and interacted with the rest was really exceptional.
Looking back at my list I'm not quite sure why I put Joslyn so far behind. I don't give her enough credit, perhaps it's because she's a bit forgettable compared to the rest.

My love-hate list has some changes

Bianca, Courtney, Adore, Ben, Joslyn, Darienne, Trinity, Laganja

This ranking of course is solely based on how much I personally like the queens and does not necessarily correlate with who should be sent home next. I definitely think Ben has more to offer to the show than Adore, but I've started to like her more and more. I guess also the reason why Ben moved down was because in that episode I saw she is not as humble as I thought she was. I still like her of course and I know she has more to give than several queens that are still there, but I don't like how confident she is with that information, even though it is pretty obvious.

I like that Laganja apologized to Adore. It wasn't fair how she targeted Adore in the last untucked, but I guess there is slightly less tension between the two of them now, ALTHOUGH it is so clear that Laganja still has some passive aggression towards Adore and how she casually puts Adore down in front of Courtney and Ben. Adore delivered during that challenge and I just don't understand how Laganja could see the opposite. That moment made it so clear that she has some obvious issues concerning Adore.

I hate that Trinity was in the bottom two with Milk. I wish it had been Darienne instead of Milk. Although I was rooting for Milk, it was so clear Trinity would not be sent home after that performance. I'm just wondering why Trinity can't bring that lip-sync essence to the challenges and that frustrates me. The disclaimer she had before her performance in the challenge was so her - she goes in with low expectations and gives everyone else low expectations as well so of course she can't deliver. I am wondering if it will ever pay off for her to give everyone low expectations and then blow everyone away. Maybe that's what she is hoping for but other than in lip sync performances, I don't think she can show that side of her in regular challenges.

I am concerned that Trinity might just keep sending people home with lip syncs. I'm hoping she was just lucky because this week it was kind of a "black" song.

I saw that!

Those are my two bitches right there

Together at last :3 I ship it.

No but really... I feel okay about it. Partially because Milk can come on All Stars 2 with Alaska and that would just be beautiful.

Also because... well winning isn't as important as growing. She clearly grew. If you look at her instagram and her videos, you can tell that she's conquered the problems she had in the show and that is what is important. She's not afraid anymore to be glamorous and she hasn't lost sight of who she is. It would've been nice for her to make it to top 3, but oh well. I still love her a lot and I'm really proud of her and I have so much respect and admiration for what she does and the artistry behind it.

HOW DARE THEY SEND BEN HOME INSTEAD OF DARIENNE

Before the season began, I made a list of predictions. I listed all the queens into 4 brackets, from most likely to win to least likely. I thought it would be fun to share:

Kelly Mantle
Ben De La Creme
Bianca Del Rio

Laganja Estranja
Courtney Act
Milk
Vivacious

Darienne Lake
April Carrion
Gia Gunn
Adore Delano

Joslyn Fox
Trinity K. Bonet
Magnolia Crawford

It's funny that Kelly Mantle, who I thought would go very far in this season, was the absolute first to go home. I think if she hadn't gone home in the first episode, there would have been a lot more she could have offered in the forthcoming challenges because she is a funny queen. Sewing was just not her forté.

I want either Bianca or Adore to win and most likely one of those two will (Bianca probably). It's funny, because as the season began I was team Courtney, but she has become so arrogant. I think Darienne has stuck around for too long and she should have gone home. Even if she doesn't go home in the next episode, it's not like she could possibly win the entire show anyway, so why keep her?
