RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars – Episode 1 – Recap – It Takes Two

Here’s our recap of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars Episode 1: “It Takes Two” on Logo.

The queens are back to compete for a $100,000 cash prize. An unexpected twist in the beginning throws off some of the competitors. I love this show!

RuPaul s Drag Race All Stars  Episode 1  Recap

Twist

Ru greets with queens with an unexpected twist this season: They will be competing as pairs. Pairs will be eliminated during the competition — at least in the early rounds — are they sharing the prize? I don’t think so.

The queens chose who they wanted to be paired up with. They raised a paddle and if their choice matches with their selection, they are paired. It was all mostly seamless up until the last where no one picked Mimi Imfurst and Pandora Boxx was stuck with her.

The Pairs:

Raven and Jujubee – Team Rujubee

Shannel and Chad Michaels – Team Shad

Nina Flowers and Tammie Brown – Team Brown Flowers

Latrice Royale and Manila Luzon – Team Latrila

Yara Sofia and Alexis Mateo – Team Yarlexis

Pandora Boxx and Mimi Imfurst – Team Mandora

Challenge:

Produce a high fashion photoshoot:

1. Half-Baked – In mid transformation, no wig

2. Opposites Attract – What makes the duo different

The queens are also required to do each other’s make up.

The basic drama was Pandora disappointed in getting paired with Mimi, though he said that their photoshoot came off well. There was really no consoling Pandora throughout the episode.

Raven was naked during their shoot! Woot!

Runway

Team Yarlexis – They wore their faces on their dresses

Team Latrila – They were Teletubbies!

Team Mandora – Green Fur! Muppets?

Team Rujubee – Burlesque

Team Brown Flowers – Basic Black with red hair.

Team Shad – Feathers!

Judging

Top 2 – Team Latrila and Team Rujubee

Latrila won!

They won custom gowns from sequinqueen.com

Team Shad did not get good critiques from the judges which was a bit shocking since Shannel and Chad Michaels are two of the most seasoned queens here. They over-thought the whole thing and it fell flat.

Results

Brown Flowers are safe

Mandora are up for elimination

Yarlexis are safe

Shad are up for elimination

Lip Sync For You Life

Only one queen will lip sync for the team. However, if their partner is having a she-mergency, the partner can press the red button to replace their partner within one minute of the lip sync. Can only be used once per team during the season.

It’s Mimi vs. Chad

No contest. Mimi Imfurst is a desperate queen if there ever was one.

Results

Chad Michaels and Shannel — shantay you stay!

Pandora Boxx and Mimi Imfurst — sashay away! Nooo, not Pandora!

Uggh. I liked Pandora. Mimi definitely screwed her over.

Please someone tell me why Mimi was an “all-star.” She’s useless!

Next Week: Vicki Lawrence!!!

I just got around to watching this and I have to say that I think you have it all wrong. I think Pandora checked-out mentally during the competitions. I agree that her runway dress was atrocious but any thought that the deck was stacked against Mimi regardless of how she did?  I think so.

Yeah, this duo twist is the worst idea ever. Pandora Boxx deserved to stay a LOT longer.
