It's like my mother always told me, "You only get one chance to make a good first impression." And sometimes, that first impression is enough for people to continue to think one way of you, despite what you may show them afterwards. I suspect Acid Betty tends to make a poor first impression, and since she does seem to be pretty abrasive, and her ex is ALLEGEDLY online posting that AB is physically abusive, as well, it's a perfect storm of hostility brewing there.
I think Bianca has a certain level of charm that Acid Betty seems to lack. Contrast Bianca's dislike of Laganja, which was mostly rolled eyes, "stealing her moment" during "Untucked", and calling her out on her affectations (pretty mild and not terribly offensive) to Acid Betty rolling her eyes at the past winners of the show ("wannabe queens") and interrupting Kim Chi's video from Trixie Mattel by blurting out how ugly Trixie is and telling Kim to fix Trixie's make-up (nasty). I think Bianca knows how to read the crowd better than Acid Betty does.
But I like Acid Betty. I loved her runway looks, I thought she was doing really well in challenges up until this week, and I frankly prefer her personality to Pearl's "flah-zee-dah " laziness. I'm going to miss her on the show, and I think if Bob and Thorgy truly were that upset to see her go, then she may have already found a friend or two, and some queens that wouldn't mind working with her. I hope she does well post-show.
And I just have to add, I absolutely ADORE Thorgy. I would love it if she won, but I think she has that sweetheart personality that just screams "Miss Congeniality" like Katya or DeLa. I hope I'm wrong, but if not, well...look at how much work Katya is doing now. Miss Congeniality is not the death sentence of a queen's career!
