It feels like there are a lot more performance challenges compared to older seasons, so alpha queens like Kandy stick around longer by hamming it up and stealing the show. Then when their looks get clocked on the runway later, it doesn't automatically put them in the bottom.
I thought this latest double save was kind of a crock. At least the way Ru did it, by giving Kandy the sashay away, and then calling her back. It was such a stunt. I guess Ru is trying to mix things up so that fans can't see some things coming from a mile away. But to me it has the opposite effect by making things look more staged, or more forced and gimmicky. The show ain't broke, no need to keep fixing it.
