Last week on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Aquaria was the queen of the Ball but Dusty Ray Bottoms had to sashay away.
After helping all of the queens with their costumes last week, Asia found herself in the bottom. When the queens asked her how she felt, Asia said that she felt used; noting that no one came over and asked is she needed anything.
This week, after noting that the queens have always been on the front lines of the LGBTQ community. For their mini challenge the queens have to drag up some government issue duffel bags and come out as a Drag Army. The Vixen won the challenge.
Saying that back in the day she was on an episode of “Geraldo”, RuPaul tells the queens that the maxi challenge this week is the be wild guests on the new daytime talk show “Bossy Rossy”.
Working in pairs, the queens must appear in a variety of episodes where they will have to show off their improvisational skills with “Bossy Rossy” Ross Matthews before a live audience.
As the winner of the mini challenge, The Vixen gets to choose her own partner and then pair up the other queens.
The Vixen chose Asia O’Hara for her partner. Their episode is titled “Why are you so obsessed with me”. One queen is copying another.
Blair and Monique are on “I married a cactus”. And the cactus is cheating on her with Monique Heart.
Monet and Kameron were on the episode “My freaky addiction is ruining my life”.
Miz Cracker and Mayhem were on the episode “Save me from my deadly fear…of pickles”. Mizz Cracker is Dr. Dill – a pickle.
Eureka and Aquaria were on the episode “Look at me! I’m a sexy baby!”.
Last week during the “Untucked” episode, The Vixen and Eureka got very aggressive in their discussion. While the queens are getting ready for the runway, the conversation continues…but at a more civilized manner.
Joining RuPaul at the judge’s table this week are Michelle Visage and Carson Kressley; along with special guests Carrie Preston and Shania Twain.
The runway look this week is Denims and Diamonds.
After the runway, RuPaul named Asia O’Hara, Blair St. Clair, Kameron Michaels, and Aquaria were all safe.
In the judge’s remarks…
The judges felt that Monet X Change’s runway look was a bit of a hit and miss; adding that her comedy on the talk show kind of fizzled out.
The judges were a bit mixed when it came to The Vixen’s runway look; adding that her performance on the talk show was a bit one note. The Vixen said that she was going to throw her partner Asia O’Hara under the bus, but stated that Asia missed her cues.
The judges like Eureka’s runway look. In her talk show performance the judges noted that she came out as she was and stole the show as a big baby.
Michelle liked that Monique Heart came out and went for it…but she wasn’t sure what “IT” was. On the talk show, she had some of her best moments with the cactus and owned the scene.
While Mayhem’s runway was adorable, it felt a bit juvenile. On the talk show, she created a great character but needed to take it further.
Mizz Cracker was brilliant as Dr. Dill with some really hilarious puns. The judges loved her runway look.
After the deliberations, RuPaul named Mizz Cracker, Monique, and The Vixen as safe with Monet X Change and Mayhem Miller in the bottom to lip sync for their lives. And for the first time, RuPaul named Eureka as the winner of the challenge.
The lip sync performance this week was “Man, I Feel Like a Woman” by guest judge Shania Twain.
Monet and Mayhem have been in the bottom two before. RuPaul told Monet X Change, “chantey, you stay” but for Mayhem Miller it was time to sashay away.
Next week it’s a Drag Con.
In this week’s episode of “Untucked” the safe queen kick off their shoes and get comfortable backstage. Conversations are much calmer this week as they discus sleeping with girls, what kind of guy is their type, and which queen they think should go home based on the competition so far.
When the remaining queens come backstage, the queens note that Mayhem Miller is in a good mood despite being one of the bottom queens. Mayhem admits that she is having fun; adding that it was the reason why she started doing drag.
Mizz Cracker apologized to the queens saying that there was no excuse for why she has a low face and is “sucking the air out of the room.” Cracker notes that she doubts herself but promises to work on doing better.
Eureka noted that this was the episode last season where she went home due to her knee injury and this week at the same time, she is one of the top looks. She notes that it means a lot to her.
Asia talks to Monet about having to lip sync; Eureka joins them and lends some support.
