'RuPaul's Drag Race': Blair gets pulled up by judge Michelle for mean act, fans say 'still waiting to laugh'
'Just about at the point where I will pay money for Blair to shut up. #RuPaulsDragRace,' said one fan after watching the failed comedy routine
'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' is upping the game with each week and it's understandable because there are only four queens left on the show — Jujubee, Miz Cracker, Blair St Clair and Shea Coulee. This week, for the maxi challenge, the contestants were tasked with putting together a comedy routine. While most aced it, Blair didn't quite make the mark.
As she stood on the stage, performing her routine, the judges thought she "panicked" and forgot her lines because, after every joke, she would turn over the pages of her notebook. Michelle Visage, one of the judges of the show, felt that it was a case of "overpreparation" and added that the sketch was simply mean. "At one point, I felt bad for you," the judge commented and further explained that there's a difference between roasting and being mean.
However, Blair made good on the loss by flaunting a rather impressive runway look, which had everyone in awe of her. But that wasn't enough to win this week's rounds. Miz Cracker, with her impeccable comic timing and unique fashion sense, walked away with the winner's tag this time.
Meanwhile, fans are of the opinion that Blair's jokes were boring and insulting. There was nothing entertaining about her act and didn't generate that many laughs as it should have. A section of viewers also thought Blair flipping the pages of her notebook was making them fall asleep and implied that it was unprofessional.
"If Blair’s Snatch Game wasn’t enough proof that she isn’t funny then ya’ll shouldn’t be surprised that she bombed this standup. #RuPaulsDragRace," a fan commented while another shared: "Who forgot to tell Blair that insults aren't jokes? #AllStars5, #DragRace, #RupaulsDragRace."
"Blair jokes & flipping them book pages im falling asleep over here!" a viewer shared. "Who started this claim that Blair is a funny queen cuz I'm still waiting to laugh.. #AllStars5, #DragRace, #RupaulsDragRace," a user tweeted. "Just about at the point where I will pay money for Blair to shut up. #RuPaulsDragRace," another posted.
