Episode 10: Drag My Wedding

Although I correctly predicted that Bianca del Rio would be in first place after episode 9, I did not predict that Adore Delano would beat Courtney after episode 10! I guess I’m not the Nate Silver of Drag Race. Courtney Act is now in third place!

Let’s just take a look at the progress of these three queens. During Episodes 1-3, Courtney Act and Adore Delano were kickin’ some serious booty because of their American Idol history. But they remained steady and Bianca almost caught up with Adore by Episode 4.

During episodes 5-6, Bianca and Adore were neck and neck.

And then by episode 9, Bianca beat Courtney. And at episode 10, Adore beat Courtney as well. Does this mean this is the top 3? I don’t think so. Episode 11, a fashion episode, is going to challenge the heck out of Adore-able Adore.

There isn’t any big news in the rest of the rankings. Bianca’s growth curve is the shape of Magnolia’s nose. Magnolia is still flat. Milk is still popular. Laganja is still unpopular.

Increase in Followers (#)

  • Bianca (yet again) got the most followers (4,900).
  • Adore did surprisingly well in this episode, increasing followers by 3,500. Her popularity must be unrelated to making a straight man look pretty.
  • Courtney and DeLa are still strong contenders, each with 1,900 and 1,800 new followers, respectively.
  • Darienne is doing slightly better than all of the eliminated queens. (Go home!)

Increase in Followers (%)

  • Bianca, will you ever stop?!?! She not only has the most followers, but also the most followers relative to her huge number of followers (14%). Sheesh.
  • Joslyn, this week’s eliminated queen, is in 2nd place, with a 12% increase in followers.
  • The other top queens are the usual suspects: Adore, Trinity, DeLa, Courtney, and Milk.

Prediction for Episode 11

Bianca will win because she can sew. Darienne and Adore will lip sync, and both of them will go home, because Darienne’s looks will be dull and Adore’s looks will be scrappy but trashy-fun. They’re filming the top 3 on May 6th. Double elimination!

  1. Regarding your comment that it will be a double elimination, the RPDR Season 6 wiki says May 5 is Sissy That Walk challenge with top 3 queens competing. So it does seem that 4/28 would be a double elimination. Weird time in the season to do that, but I guess it avoids the empty workroom syndrome where it keeps more of them together longer, especially keeping Adore longer as she makes for great TV. I still think Adore has an outside shot for top 3 but it would be really hard to see her making top 3 for the challenge. Same with Darienne. So I guess it’s Bianca, Ben and Courtney top 3. For the RPDR 6 run in Australia, Courtney is the commercial so I can’t help but feel she was always at least going to get top 4. I think she’s coasted. I really thought there was going to be a Courtney Joslyn lipsync. Oh well.

    It’s weird because in a sense Courtney is the villain of the season. She just does it fairly gently or at least in a high pitch and she does it to people’s faces not behind their backs. Overall nobody really wanted to be the villain after the Roxxxy drama last time.

    So the winner will be announced May 19. As May 12 is a clip show. The 2nd competition is who is doing the best in their performances around the country. RuPaul wants someone who will be successful. Meaning Darienne is guaranteed NOT top 3. Ben is booking everywhere. So is Bianca. Not sure about Courtney or Adore.

    I’m rooting for Bianca because Joan Rivers will be dying soon and we need a replacement.
