ALYSSA EDWARDS (AS2)
I love Alyssa but she's in my bottom 2 in the list of those who are left. Alyssa is one of the five queens from season 5 to compete in All Stars 2. I was excited to see her to compete again because she definitely became one of the most iconic queens in drag race herstory. Also, for the Coco/Alyssa storyline to happen because Coco is back. But apparently, they were friends by then and had already made up. That was a great thing because their feud might be iconic but I was not there to watch it all over again.
Anyway, Alyssa did good in the talent show. She showed us her skills that we knew she had and she delivered. She was safe this week which was deserved. The next week, she did Joan Crawford which was really funny! She delivered and probably deserved to be in the top 2 if it weren't for the performances of Katya as Bjork and Alaska as Mae West. Her Latex Extravaganza look really stood out to me because it wasn't black and I love the aesthetic of it with the yellow and the pink lips. Very creative. I think I really started rooting for her when HERstory of the World happened which was the week after snatch game. She delivered as Annie Oakley but her runway was so bad in my opinion. It reminded me of the drag looks back in her season. Vom. It was tacky af. The acting challenge where she was eliminated, I don't know how to feel because I just think it's not as bad as the judges said it was because she was actually a funny trainwreck. Her 2-in-1 look though was... okay, I guess. The cameras flashing was definitely creative but it wasn't my cup of tea. Especially the first look before the ruveal.
She then came back with the other eliminated queens and she, along with Tatianna, served us with one of the best lip syncs ever to Shut Up and Drive. But let's go back a little, shall we? First, with her feud with Phi Phi that gave us so many iconic moments! Second, I didn't really find her funny in the stand up. Alaska definitely did all the work there. I'm not saying she didn't deserve to be in the top 2. Anyway, she came back with Tatianna in the competition and then had that Drag Fish Tank. Let's be real. Roxxxy and Detox were the real bottom 2. Anyway! She did well in the challenge. Her pants looks was again okay but nothing special or made me gasp. She finally got eliminated in the makeover challenge which she should have not left. But we all know the riggory in this competition. Oh well.
Overall she did great in he competition and would've gone further along with Tatianna if Rolaskatox didn't freak things up. Does Alyssa deserve to be in the top 14? Yes. But with the others still in, I prefer her to leave.
