S06.E05: Date Night

Recommended Posts


Wow, Queen of Hearts just killed it. That's my favorite song on the planet. La Vie en Rose. Did y'all hear Jewel's yodeling? I did. She has wonderful legs.

Producers were nice to give Nicole the right guess this episode instead of Jenny. I don't know the Pointer Sisters well, but Ruth has the exact speaking voice of Leslie Jones and similar legs.

Mr Dimples is gonna keep me confused until he goes home. Who has dimples that's been married to his childhood sweetheart his whole career? C'mon Mallard.

Craig Robinson's body is nothing like Banana (of Split) and he wouldn't waste his amazing voice! Still sticking with McPhee and David Foster. Some of her moves looked like her moves from Smash.

Caterpillar has me stumped as they always do. I wanted him to be Zac Levi, it ain't.

Queen of Hearts is Jewel...fairly confident but I have been wrong before!

Caterpillar sounds familiar but I'm stumped. And Mallard is a mystery.

Twitter just solved the Mallard! Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty. (A name I have never heard from a show I've never watched!) 

A duck playing a mallard. Lol.

My guess for Banana Split is the Hough siblings. Derek danced with Nicole on Dancing With The Stars and won the mirror ball trophy that season which fits with “had a ball with” clue. Their clue package also mentioned reality (they’ve been on reality shows Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, and World of Dance), pain and heartbreak (Julianne just went through a divorce). IIRC, a small globe was shown which also fits World of Dance

I wonder how far in advance they knew they wouldn't have both Pointer Sisters for Cupcake? They had a picture of the second costume so it was almost ready it seems. But I don't see them having 2 pairs of contestants in the same group; so either Cupcakes or Banana Split would have ended up in Group A. 

Until the reveal, I was still slightly leaning towards RuPaul as a guess, but the clues clearly weren't matching up. 

This is a tough group to rank because they're all pretty damn good all around. I half wonder if this was a planned elimination for Cupcake, because I was leaning towards Mallard or Queen of Hearts being eliminated; not because they were bad, but more because their song choices were less Pop so less likely to be accepted.

Does Derek play the piano?

OMG I got one right!!!!   I guessed Ruth Pointer initially.

I love how Nicolle just "instantly" knew who it was once she was up for unmasking.   I did read somewhere that Anita wasn't doing too well.   It would've been nice having them both perform.    Hope she gets better.

Observation that 5 of the first 6 eliminated contestants are black.  I wonder if that's because a higher percentage of these contestants this season are black but if not, maybe the producers don't have as much influence/fix on the results as I had thought.  Because it doesn't seem like a good luck for them if everyone black is getting eliminated early.  Especially someone like Toni Braxton....

I saw a commercial for the TMZ show which seemed to feature a Jester costume that I think they said was banned for being lewd?  I didn't bother to watch TMZ but I'm wondering what costume that person ended up being?

The first people who leave are often the most famous. Aka Toni Braxton/Tyga/Vivica Fox/Lil Wayne/Athletes galore. I think their most famous contestants this year happened to be Black.

I've only started watching these shows recently, but it certainly feels to me that the first elimination or two of each group tends to be preplanned. They are usually some variety of 'stunt' casting to drive up excitement, but otherwise not someone you would expect to return repeatedly. (Like Kermit the Frog last year). It gives the contestants there for the long run a few rounds to get used to performing for reals and to build up excitement for their own character arc in relative safety. 

 

That so many of the revealed singers this time were black was probably just a coincidence that is more obvious in hindsight from now. But it probably isn't intentional.

Agree that eliminations are random or pre-planned, like Toni Braxton who wasn't in it for the long haul, especially with her health issues.
