Now that all the season six queens have been introduced and competed in their little groups, it's time for the full squad to combine, size each other up, and then jump into this week's challenges, both of which relied on teamwork. The mini challenge was a silly little beach-blanket performance in which one queen played the top half, while the other played the bottom. Giggle it up, girls. After the team of Adore Delano and Milk's decidedly untucked package emerged victorious, each was made team captain for the Scream Queens challenge. At which point, they picked exclusively queens who were in their initial divided group for their respective teams.
The result was not close. Team Milk obliterated a poorly-prepared Team Adore, and along the way, it was the performances of disembodied heads that determined the week's winner (Darienne Lake) and loser (Vivacious). But who were the best, worst, and just-good-enough queens of the week?
Full disclosure: I (Alex) had Thanksgiving with Bianca Del Rio twice. I was nervous that she would make fun of me and spent the entire meal fearing it might happen. I consider her a friend. Bless her heart.
Ben De La Creme: DeLa, as it seems she's being called, had the unfortunate luck to be stuck with the Bad News Bears of the scream-queens challenge, a.k.a. Adore's team. Of course, it was probably a whole lot easier to stand out as a talent when on set with slack-jawed doofs like Adore and Gia Gunn. Still, the judges took the time to single her out, so that bodes well. She's easy to like, our DeLa, and she manages to blend performative instincts with fun, thought-out looks quite well. Still, Darienne Lake's observation (on Untucked) that she may run into trouble if she doesn't let some of her own personality shine through that perky artiface rings true.
