Episode 5 starts out with Ru telling the girls that “Talk is Cheap” but having charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to talk to millions of people is priceless. For this week’s Maxi Challenge the girls need to produce and host an intimate provocative and entertaining chat show called “Pink Table Talk.” Working in teams of 3, they will dish on either Body, Motherhood or Sex. The girls couldn’t decide which group should take which topic, so they rock, paper, scissor for it.
Eureka, A’keria and Trinity get the topic of sex.
Ra’jah, Sonique and Scarlet get the topic of motherhood.
Jan, Ginger and Pandora get the topic of body.
Joining, Ru, Michelle and ross on the main stage is Aisha Tyler. Category on the runway is “Clash of the Patterns.”
The top team was Eureka, A’keria, and Trinity but the top all-star of the week was Ginger. The bottom 3 girls are Jan, Scarlet and Sonique. The Lip Synch Assassin curtain opens and standing there is Bianca Del Rio. After a bit of conversation, and some jokes Bianca says she is not there to lip synch, because she never had to lip synch on her season, so why should she start now. Then Mayhem Miller is revealed as the assassin this week. In my opinion the song was definitely up Mayhem’s alley, and she did a good job, but surprisingly Ginger killed it, and had me in stitches!
Ginger wins the lip synch and it’s revealed that she chose Scarlet Envy to get the chop.
It was, once again, a pleasure to sit down with Scarlett for this exclusive Hotspots interview:
How has your life changed since you were on Drag Race the first time?
In every way imaginable. I went from zero to 100 in a matter of a few weeks. All Stars reenergized that. I am traveling a lot and I have a lot of new friends and life is good…I am very happy!
What has been some of your favorite cities to visit as a RuPaul Alumni?
I really love Montreal because its not very far away from where I live in New York, but it feels like I am in Europe when I am there. I also love the United Kingdom. My hometown is Louisville Kentucky and I always love going back to visit. In addition, anywhere with a beach as I would live on a beach if I could. But my all-time favorite city is where I live in New York City.
How exciting was it to get called back to All Stars and did you consider not coming back?
I never considered not going back, as I felt it was the right thing to do. I love Drag Race as a fan and I loved being part of it the first time around, and it was a dream come true for them to call me for All Stars.
How did you prepare differently for All Stars than you did the first time you were on Drag Race?
I prepared a lot more the second time around then I did the first time. I pulled my resources, which I had now, and I worked with a team of people that do what they do much better than I can do. I had an incredibly talented team that I am so proud of.
Is there anything you would have done differently?
Honestly, no. I think I did the very best I could, and I had a great run when I was there. The best part is that the viewers have expressed to me that they saw me continually deliver.
What challenge or look on All Stars are you most proud of?
I think the look that I am most proud of is my redemption runway. Also, my love letter dress from my grandparents was amazing but I haven’t seen the episode yet. I have a feeling that will become my favorite. Fashion is such a cool opportunity to be more than a pretty dress, it’s a way to tell a story.
Now that you have been eliminated, who do you want to win and why?
My friendship with Raja is a treasure from this season, as our history was not great on our season. It is a true sisterhood, where forgiveness is so important, and love will always win. Raja has embodied changes for the better, and I hope she takes the crown.
What’s ahead for Scarlet?
I have so many things in the works. I am working with a bubble-esque tour, and a book of drag queen poetry. I can share some with your readers:
Robbed Queen – Where is always my stuff?
Laundry – Tucking panties need to be cleaned, but another show, is starting now.
I am also working on music and a music video, and I am touring. “Meet and Greet’s” are my favorite thin as I love interacting and hugging the fans.
