Our number of season 11 queens has officially been reduced by half, and in celebration, What the Tuck has temporarily reduced its co-host count by half this week. That’s right, Mano Agapion (of the Horny 4 Horror podcast) is flying solo while his usual co-host Matt Rogers (Vulture’s very own Drag Race recapper and one half of Las Culturistas) is out — but luckily Mano has brought along a very special guest judge to help us wade through yet another Drag Race improv challenge: Eliot Glazer, co-host of You’re Making It Worse, who sits in this week to assess the queens’ trip to the Library and the comedic grab bag that was the Cops-inspired “L.A.D.P.” maxi-challenge.
Together, Mano and Eliot workshop the reads they might bring along with them to the Reading Is Fundamental mini-challenge; talk through the variety of comedy dynamics, both good and bad, on display in the maxi-challenge; puzzle over some less-than-iconic interpretations of the “facekini” runway directive; and wonder whether this season’s top-four queens have already revealed themselves. So listen below or download it for later on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen — we don’t care, honey, as long as you listen.
