Last week the queens on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” created ads for unusual dating apps and Yuhua was sent home.
This week the remaining queens are going to the Ball.
But first they will have to perfect the art of the celebrity photo bomb using modern technology. The queens get only 15 minutes to drag up.
Photo bombing Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Aquaria won the challenge.
Telling the queens that she has some good news and some bad news, RuPaul says that global warming is real…but they are throwing a Ball – The Last Ball on Earth. The queens must create three looks for their Ball:
Alaskan Winter Realness
Miami Summer Realness
and Martian Eleganza Extravaganza – slay the runway on your new home planet – Mars
A sewing and design challenge, some of the queens are having a bit of trouble with their creations.
RuPaul visits the workroom to visit with the queens and to check on their progress.
When the queens come into the workroom on elimination day, there is still a lot of work to be don on the costumes before they hit the runway.
Joining RuPaul at the judges table this week are Michelle Visage and Ross Matthews with special guest judges Logan Browning and Tisha Campbell Martin.
After the reveal of the three looks RuPaul said that Mayhem Miller, Eurika, The Vixen, Monique Heart, and Blair St. Clair were all safe.
The remaining queens were the top and bottom looks for the week.
Making their remarks, the judges said…
Monet X Change’s Miami loos was elegant but the other looks seemed a bit sloppy and homemade.
Kameron Michaels gave them something different with each look and the costumes were glamourous; adding that she showed glamour, fun, and character.
Aquaria’s looks were all cohesive and a showstopper
Dusty Ray Bottoms Miami look was thought out but they didn’t get her other looks. The judges called her Martian look magic but not Martian; adding that her looks were disappointing and missed the mark.
This week Asia O’Hara – who is a costume designer – gave her fellow queens a helping hand in the workroom and ran short of time to completing her own looks. RuPaul told Asia that she needs to take care of herself before helping the others.
Miz Cracker was perfection on the runway; adding that each of her looks told a story.
Once the deliberations were over, RuPaul named Aquaria as the winner of the challenge. Miz Cracker, Kameron and Asia were all safe but it was time for Dusty Ray Bottoms and Monet X Change to lip sync for their lives.
After the lip sync performance of “Pound the Alarm” by Nicki Minaj RuPaul told the remaining queens that was what you called a lip sync for your life.
RuPaul told Monet X Change chantey you stay but for Dusty Ray Bottoms it was time to sashay away. Dusty thanked RuPaul for her time on the show; adding that she was eternally grateful.
Next week it’s time for a talk show performance.
In the “Untucked” segment, the safe queens went backstage to grab a drink, kick off their shoes, and get comfortable.
At first the conversation was cordial but quickly turned aggressive when Eureka noted that another queen was more crafty.
Once the remaining queens come back stage, Monet is emotional over being in the bottom with the potential of having to lip sync for her life. The queens discuss how they don’t like having to lip sync against friends.
After her elimination, Dusty is sad to leave so early but she is very happy that she came.
