Jeffrey Bower-Chapman — to be honest, before tonight I had never so much as heard the name. After tonight, he may well have a new follower! It’s entirely possible that I may not have been the best person to appreciate this episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars as I have honestly never seen an episode of the actual Bachelor.
The queens all got dolled up and showed up at a lovely mansion and they all tried to win over Jeffrey B. Chapman. I’m sure there were a lot of references to The Bachelor but I honestly didn’t really get them other than at the end for the ‘giving of the eggplant’ ceremony which parallels with the giving of the rose on The Bachelor. Who got the eggplant? Why, it was Mama Ru! I suppose since it was meant as a parody of The Bachelor, it wasn’t going to have real results.
The main stage competition category was a confusingly named (but immediately understandable) “Wig on Wig on Wig” which made sense when the queens started coming out and taking off wigs to reveal wigs underneath. I was reminded of a Doctor Seuss book — The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.
I was enamored with all of the different combinations of wigs that were taken off to ruveal other wigs. Aja particularly stuck out to me because I have long been a fan of anime. Kennedy Davenport and BendelaCreme were named the top two, who were to lip sync for their legacy.
The bottom two were a bit more shocking to me : Milk, Aja, and Chichi. What was not shocking was that Milk was the one that got eliminated. Good riddance, I say.
