'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Crystal does a Bert and Ernie inspired makeover, fans say its screams gay rights
This week's runway theme was Drag Family Resemblance and Crystal's look was inspired by Bert and Ernie and it was a pure joy to see them walk down the ramp
Crystal Methyd's Drag Family Resemblance look with superfan Grace was inspired by Bert and Ernie and fans are loving it.
Six queens remain on the show and the competition is getting tougher by the minute. This week on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12, the drag queens had to give six superfans a makeover from head to toe.
Last week we saw Widow Von'Du sashay away after she lost the 'Lipsync For Your Life' battle against Jackie Cox. Back again this week, though the queens shared what they missed about Widow, they wasted no time in getting back into the competition vying for the season title. With six queens remaining, the competition is getting tougher by the minute.
Mama Ru entered the workroom and revealed, "For today's maxi challenge you're going to be making over some beautiful women that just happen to be 'Drag Race' superfans."
The superfans had no idea they were getting a full makeover. Since Jaida Essence Hall won last week's challenge, she got to pick the superfan for each drag queen. She paired Crystal Methyd with kindergarten teacher Grace who loves glitters as much as Crystal does.
This week's runway theme was Drag Family Resemblance and Crystal's look was inspired by Bert and Ernie and it was pure joy to see them walk down the runway. It was creative and perfect and one of our favorite makeovers from this week.
Taking to Twitter fans admitted they are obsessed with Crystal and Grace's (Opal Methyd - drag name) look. "I hope I don’t sound ridiculous but I actually liked Crystal’s drag family look. It was on brand and it don’t get any closer than Ernie and Bert tbh #DragRace," a fan shared.
"I get that sh*rry’s girl looks exactly like her but Crystal’s Bert & Ernie look? Perfect #DragRace," a fan said. While another fan added, "Crystal and Grace doing lesbian Bert and Ernie is aligned with my interests #DragRace."
"Crystal has been steady growing on me and I loooove this Bert and Ernie look omg #DragRace Stop Fracking," a fan wrote. Adding to that another fan said, "Crystal Methyd said gay rights with the Bert and Ernie makeup #DragRace."
"Bert & ernie on the runway?? NO ONE is screaming gay rights like crystal methyd, icons," a fan added. Another fan shared, "Crystal’s drag makeover looks are gonna be based on Bert and Ernie and I’m obsessed #DragRace."
