RuPaul's Drag Race episode 2 recap and comments.

Creativity! Uniqueness! Nerve! and Talent!

Heeeeeeeeeeyy! For this week's Drag Race recap, we have the honor of welcoming back woodsman Tim Weins and bio-drag queen Claudette Murphree. And this week, we're blessed to welcome two more to the couch: Germanic beauty Katja Rivera, and gallery-owner Katie Geha! Ka-Pow!

Let's get to the dirt!

Overall Impressions:

Katie: A lot of Divas being divas! I wonder if being a drag queen is a collaboration, or if it has to be.

Andy: You're getting Deeeeeeeeeeep. Early on!

Katie: Well, no one was getting along.

Claud: I think the one team did 'til Chanell got bitchy with the make-up.

Andy: Yeah, it may be a reality thing.

Katie: I think it was edited to be more shady.

Team Serving Fish:

Katie: Ongina was excellent.

Katja: And she had the team spirit.

Claud: Ongina turned up the heat with a wig.

Andy: She looked good with a wig.

Tim: Like a real lady. Except for her… what did she call it?

Claudette: She called it "Mammal-toe." It's moose knuckle.

Team 3-D:

Claud: There were four of them!

Andy: Well, I don't think Tammy was a part of that team…

Katie: I don't think that Tammy wanted to be there.

Tim: I think that song went against her soul.

Katja: Can we talk about camp?

Andy: Well, I don't think they were being campy.

Katie: I think they were sincere…

Katja: So we had some sincere drag performances.

Claud: If a drag queen walks a catwalk does anyone hear?

Lip Sync for Life:

Tim: It was heartbreaking. I didn't like Tammy, but I like her now because she was who she was and she didn't sell out.

Katja: I think she got pushed out.

Claudette: I think we all need to work on our C U N T.
