If you've been keeping up with RuPaul's Drag Race
, you know the point system and what it stands for. But if you don't, here's a quick refresher before we apply it to the newest episode of RDR!
Every week on RuPaul’s Drag Race
, the girls go up for elimination. They are judged on the basis of one winner per challenge: the girls ranked high, the girls who are in the middle (or safe), the girls ranked low, and the bottom two and eliminated queen. Using this, we can actually determine who is leading the pack so far. Using a 1-5 point scale, we can determine which of the contestants is doing well, and which will be going home.
The point system works like this:
5 – Winner of the challenge
4 – Ranked high
3 – Ranked safe
2 – Ranked low or bottom two
1 – Eliminated
Now let’s apply it to the remaining girls on Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race:
Adore Delano: 25 + 2 (BTM 2) = 27
BenDeLaCreme: 24 + 4 (HIGH) = 28
Bianca Del Rio: 29 + 4 (HIGH) = 33
Courtney Act: 23 + 5 (WIN) = 28
Darienne Lake: 20 + 3 (SAFE) = 23
Joslyn Fox: 20 + 2 (LOW) = 22
Trinity K. Bonet: 23 + 1 (ELIM) = 24
Bianca is still at the head of the pack, and we got a shocking look at Trinity, who scored higher than both Darienne and Joslyn. Even so, she was still sent home that week. Adore had a higher score than Trinity, so this system does show that the scores like this do matter when faced with their previous performances. Rock (Adore) beats scissors (Trinity), but would scissors (Trinity) have beaten paper (Joslyn)? The world will never know.
