Drag Race UK vs. The World (S2)

Time for my patented Ball ranking!

QUEENLady Prince /5She-vil Queen /5Drags to Riches /10Total /20
La Grande Dame558.518.5
Keta Minaj3.547.515
Marina Summers33.5915.5
Gothy Kendoll2.53.5612
Jonbers Blonde33410
Scarlet Envy14813
Tia Kofi44.5513.5
Hannah Conda232.57.5
Choriza May2.5338.5
Arantxa 234.59.5
So I definitely agree with the Top 3 & Bottom 3 that were picked, so I'm not too upset about any result. I do think Arantxa shouldn't have gone home out of the 2 that were picked, but I also think Hannah definitely could've been in the Bottom 2 over her. Dame obviously demolished this and deserved the win, and I'm not mad at Keta being up there with her, but I do think Marina had the best final look.

People saying Scarlet deserved to be anywhere near the Top 3 are crazy cause her first look was EASILY the worst thing on the stage, even worse than Hannah & Choriza's final looks. Yes, Scarlet's last dress was good, but the fact that it was a bodice & a skirt, rather than being attached was also not great.

Chorizo May is insufferable this season and she's reallly grating:

I was going to say, she was so much fun on her season and her energy somehow is so off-putting this time.
 
They/them, he/him
I quite like Choriza as a person, but my god, she needs to learn to edit her looks. There is so much going on that I never know where to look. There needs to be a focal point, otherwise it all just looks like a huge mess.
 
She/Her/Queen
Chorizo was good and enjoyable in her original season. I think this is the case of when being asked back she’s doing too much - lewks and personality wise.

It's pretty clear that Hannah would have been eliminated if she'd been in the bottom 2 with Choriza OR Arantxa, so I have to assume they were saving her for whatever reason. Her middle look was great though, I'll give her that.
 
Death and excrement to anyone who bullied Arantxa in the past - she's such a sweetheart and very entertaining as well. And though the execution wasn't totally there, I found her looks far more compelling than Hannah Conda or Choriza, whose taste level just isn't there - the fabrics just weren't it.

La Grande Dame is just in a league of her own. How did she have me gasping at all three looks?? I had to remind myself that it was a design challenge - crown her immediately! Also Marina's blue dress was everything. The very clear top 2 (I just know someone's gonna be messy and get rid of them).
 
I think Arantxa serves as a perfect early out queen in that she's very charming and likeable but is also a little out of her depth. I don't think her Drag Race journey has as much to do with "the crown" as it has to do with her personal growth and reclamation of who she is. I've really enjoyed getting to know her tibs! Unlike Choriza and her meticulously planned All Stars mission where the proverbial wheels are already starting to fall off. Put the owls from Etsy down mama, none of us laughed the first time!

Yeah I'm really grateful that I got to know Arantxa, she's so loveable. I was a bit gagged that LGD chose her, especially after they showed that Arantxa helped her out in the challenge in some way. But I can't blame her. She's playing a fair game, and Arantxa was unfortunately a bit weaker in the challenge. I don't think Choriza is going to last that much longer, though.
 
She/Her/Queen
This is one of the rare occasions where a queen was given a second chance and it worked because Arantxa was forgettable and kinda annoying in her original season. Who knew all she needed was to live her truth and she became a true Queen!

TRANSITIONING WORKS WONDERS!

I always wish we got to see more of the work room scenes because they're always some of my favourites. They should do extended versions on iPlayer or something to show more of that. The LGD and Tia Kofi work room flirting scenes were brilliant this week.

Same energy as A'Whora's I Love Pandas with Sister Sister back in season 2.

Arantxa helped Keta by lending her a pattern for her long sleeve coat, not Dame.

This isn't a spoiler, as it was from my observation watching this episode, but it is something that will be revealed next episode, so click at your own risk:
I believe Keta did pick Choriza's lipstick because you can see it in the reflection as she's selecting lipsticks that the remaining one was the one with the Spanish flag. So Keta did have Arantxa's back for helping her.

Oh that's right! Thanks for correcting my bad memory.

I was a bit gagged that Arantxa had a pattern of any description at all, never mind one that was suitable to be borrowed and used to make a great outfit. Arantxa's own outfit didn't exactly suggest it was made my someone who used many patterns.

Such a genuine and lovely person though. I had not seen her original season, so she was completely new to me. I definitely could have done with a few more episodes. Just a really warm energy about her.
