Previously on All Stars, the eliminated queens returned for their ruvenge, where Roxxy, Coco and Phi² struggled through a comedy show before the latter’s reign of – all in the edit – terror finally came to an end after Tatianna and Alyssa officially came back, back, back, back, back again and both chose to eliminate her from the competition.
In the words of Alaska, ouch.
The queens returned to the workroom to not buy Phi²’s message and comprehend the fact they went from the top five, to top six. Thankfully Ru didn’t give them much time to mull it over, joining the girls for a round of Butt Butt Golf which, let’s be honest, had no more smutty puns than any Survivor challenge lorded over by Jeff Probst.
After their brief round on the green, the Queens were then charged with inventing merchandise inspired by their brand and film a commercial to sell it.
Obviously Roxxxy struggled, as well, she has spent most of the competition on the bottom – living the dream, really – Alyssa was selling her go-go juice, Tati went for a tea set, Detox a trash talkin’ trash can, Katya – much to the disappointment of Marcus Lemonis – sold a crisis control mist and Alaska fashion tape.
Despite it being a new week and a new challenge, does anyone else have a sense of deja vu? Once again, Alaska and Katya landed in the top thanks to their killer commercials, Roxxxy and Tatianna were in the bottom two – thank you – Alaska won the lip sync and sent Tatianna and her killer T-Boz impersonation home … when it should have been Roxxxy. Choices.
Stay safe Katya and Alyssa – Rolaskatox appears to have reformed!
In an effort to mix it up, I did decide to cook a second meal for Tati’s second elimination but forwent my Tortellianna and instead whipped up some sweet Tatibanana Fritters because fuck knows you need something sweet after becoming the first person in drag race herstory to be eliminated thrice. And choices. You always need choices.
Like Tati these little babies are sweet, a little bit naughty and have a deceptive firmness inside the delicate exterior which always makes me excited.
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp cinnamon
4 bananas, cut in half and then two-three pieces
lug of vegetable oil, for frying
maple syrup and ice cream, to serve
Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk the egg and milk together in a measuring jug. Make a well in the flour and mix until batter is smooth.
Heat the oil in a large pan – obviously I don’t deep fry them as I am scared and just use enough to make them crisp.
Dip the bananas in the batter, place in the pan a few at a time and fry until golden, flipping only one. Remove and transfer to a paper towel to drain and repeat until the banana is done.
Serve with a generous amount of ice cream and some maple syrup. Devour.
