You can always count on RuPaul to speak the truth. And, natch, for being funny as hell while doing it. It’s one of the queen’s best attributes. On last night’s episode of Drag Race, the host couldn’t have been more spot on with her searing bon mot to eternally funny queen Pandora Boxx, as she awaited her fate after the rocker chick-inspired challenge: “Pandora Box,” RuPaul said, in her hilarious, deeply dramatic fashion, “you are the Susan Lucci of this competition.”
And RuPaul is right — the poor, poor Pandora Boxx, a favorite contestant of mine who pulled off a truly wacky but inspired rocker gal with a cape and all, once again did not win the challenge. She was robbed, I tell you! But, I suppose we can’t feel too badly for Pandora, can we? Just because she didn’t win — the problem that infamously plagued All My Children diva Lucci for years at the Daytime Emmys — doesn’t mean she lost. No, the dubious distinction of last night’s loser went to none other than Sahara Davenport, who has spent her fair share of time in the bottom this season on Drag Race. Now, throughout these first six episodes, I’ve liked the uber-sweet and feminine Sahara Davenport just fine, especially after the rocky first week where it also seemed like she was going to be sent packing, but her efforts at lipsynching last night were abysmal at best.
