Remember your first kiss? First car? First time getting arrested? First visit to the free clinic? One’s life is marked by milestones and tonight we celebrate a HUGE one. Yes, chickens… It’s the first ever makeover episode on RuPaul’s Drag Race, wherein 5 tuff-gal lady-fighters get transformed from butch boxing belles into draggedy divas!
In fact, the inside scoop tells me that it was this very episode that helped inspire the birth of the Drag Race spinoff show RuPaul’s Drag U. Yes, yes… It’s all just a little bit of herstory repeating.
Hope you enjoy this week’s Extra Lap Recap! Watch for some serious kitty-punching as our top queens get combative. Ru even gets so traumatized that she has to exsqueeze herself from the judges table! And if you need to watch the actual episode first, then float like a butterfly over to LogoTV.com. They can help you with that.
And yes, this episode we lose one of Season 1′s bright lights. But we also get one of the best lip-sync battles. Period. So props for that! Also, since our queens got physical this episode, I even decided to aerobicize a little in their honor. Now, thrust, clench, squat, lunge, repeat!
P.S. In honor of the fact that we learn in this week’s episode that the Babs Streisand classic The Main Event is RuPaul’s all-time fave boxing movie, here’s a link to the genius mashup of Ru’s single “The Main Event” with Barbra Joan’s disco nugget of the same name. It was done by DJ Shyboy. Perfect for your own makeover/boxing/jazzercise soundtrack.
