Previously on Canada’s Drag Race the dolls were tasked with dragging up a group of queer teens for the best, prom, EVER. While Kendall could have gone shady when pairing up the queens and the teens, she wanted the kids to have fun and as such, everyone was perfectly paired. All of the queens slayed their makeovers, though Pythia and her teen stole the show while Icesis and Adriana were both read for not telling a coherent story. As such, Pythia took out a second well earned victory, while the latter two had to lip sync for their lives with poor Adriana tragically exiting the competition.
Backstage the top four were thrilled to have made it to the end, with Icesis particularly grateful to have dominated the lip sync on her way there. Kendall meanwhile was proud to be there but more so, proud to be there with her sisters. They all kind of admitted that they expected this top four from the start before they congratulated Pythia on finally winning a design challenge. The sweet, Canadian version of shade was interrupted by a surprise message announcing that instead of going straight through to the finale, they would be having a little reunion with their fallen sisters.
With that the eliminated queens joined Brad on the mainstage, starting with Beth – yep, its happening – Océane, Stephanie, Suki, Eve, Synthia, Kimora and Adriana returning to kiki with the top four which, gay gasp, we learnt would become the final three before the end of the night! Starting out hella shady, only Stephanie was shocked about the makeup of the top four, admitting that she should be there instead of Kendall. Which Kendall assured her was just because she missed the growth throughout the competition since, you know, she left so early.
Given reunions are never really compelling to read about, I’m just going to curate and give you the highlights. Icesis was thrilled her fashion was well received while Pythia was grateful that her creativity was embraced within the competition. Beth vowed that while she didn’t get to show it on the show, she was ready to prove her growth on the global stage. Océane joined a gym, Adriana – and all of her sisters – were proud of how well she performed, while the Brat Pack were just thrilled to get to have such good friends with them in such an intense competition.
With sweet Kimora just thrilled to see such a nice bond between Kendall, Gia and Synthia, despite the fact it may have been difficult for some of the other girls. Namely Beth and Eve.
Everyone spoke about Eve’s many tantrums, though agreed that she just needs to see the star she is, which is something everyone else can see. Icesis admitted to being insular, before Brad gagged me with the fact that ICESIS is the oldest queen of the season. We then got a supercut of Gia’s Oscar speeches, after which I woke to Stephanie yawning, and talk turned to Pythia being the only one to not have to lip sync throughout the competition.
After the queens gushed over how grateful they were to makeover the amazing queer teens, the top four shared the moment they realised they were doing well in the competition, with Kendall sharing that lip syncing for her life is what put a fire in her belly. Gia admitted that overcoming the nerves in the roast made her realise she belonged, while Icesis agreed that lip syncing worked her up, along with the help of the girls telling her to snap out of it and Pythia admitted that surviving Snatch Game was all it took for her.
Stephanie was then handed a mic to read the girls, calling out Kendall for looking like Jay Z out of drag, Beth for bombing the first lip sync while Suki was deemed a Doll, but only in an Annabelle kind of way. Which didn’t bother her, given she was then crowned as Miss Congeniality of the season.
But that is where the joy left as the eliminated queens were asked to identify who they think would win, with Beth, Océane and Kimora going with Icesis – though the latter wanted Pythia – while Stephanie, Synthia and Adriana were Team Pythia, and Eve went with Kendall. And Suki opted for either Icesis or Pythia. Before Eve broke down saying they all deserved it.
Brad then gagged the top four by announcing that in order to get to the top three, they would have to compete in a lip sync tournament until one girl was eliminated. First to face off were Kendall and Gia to RuPaul’s Main Event with both of the girls coming out of the gate absolutely firing and leaning into their respective styles. Gia was sexy and flipping around the stage while Kendall was giving full camp and comedy. Which proved enough to hand Kendall a narrow victory and automatically book her place in the finale. Leaving Gia to battle it out against the loser of the next lip sync for the final slot.
Speaking of which, up next were Pythia and Icesis who did battle to Born Naked and like before, the dolls were ready to fight. Pythia was kooky and camp, living her best life while Icesis was laser focused, hitting every lyric and showing why she has dominated the competition all season. She then literally dominated Pythia, giving us the sexiest contact sport Drag Race has ever seen. As such, Icesis booked her way into the finale, leaving Pythia to face off against Gia for the final slot.
As soon as Mama Ru’s Call Me Mother kicked off, Gia and Pythia gave it their all. Pythia gave more kooky and felt every lyric while Gia flipped all over the stage, showing just how damn polished and fierce a performer she is. Ultimately though, only one could go through to the finale with Pythia booking her place, leaving Gia to exit the competition.
While she didn’t give us another lengthy Oscars speech backstage, she was so grateful to see me and to have the support of such a dear friend. You see, I invented the Brat Pack when I visited Harry and Meg in Canada when they divorced the Queen. I quickly grew bored of them wanting to lay low, so hightailed it to Vancouver and we quickly became the four best friends that ever could be.
Obviously I then got deported for some reason or another, but the dolls kept in contact and made sure I still felt a part of things, so it was wonderful to be able to pay Gia back for her kindness. While Brad sprung the elimination on us with minimal notice, I was thankfully able to pull together an Eggia Mactric and Cheese to show my love.
Yeah, yeah – this is just Mountadriana Mac and Cheese with an egg on top, but name a better breakfast? Because I better you can’t. The perfectly cooked fried egg with a sprinkle of chilli are the perfect accompaniment to the mac, to help get your day off to the right start.
Eggia Mactric and Cheese
2 serves Mountadriana Mac and Cheese (or any mac you like, but the bacon really helps)
2 tbsp butter
½-1 tsp chilli flakes
Reheat your mac and cheese and divide into two bowls.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet of medium heat and once foaming, crack the two eggs into the pan, sprinkle with the chilli and fry until the white is set but the yolk is still nice and gooey.
Pop the egg on top of your mac and devour immediately, as the yolk flows all over the pasta.
