After last week’s tragic elimination (yes, I said it), the queens took part in an animated challenge to determine which queens are one step closer to the crown. When the episode opens, the queens make sure to congratulate Ginger Minj on her win, so she doesn’t “pull a Trinity” and we find out that Pandora Boxx’s elimination was a unanimous one. Trinity vows not to dwell on the negative (referring to her Snatch Game performance.)
RuPaul enters the werk room and tells the queens that for this week’s mini challenge they need to relive their high school days and dole out superlatives to their sisters. While Kylie Sonique Love is voted most likely to steal your boyfriend, prettiest and most likely to have a sugar daddy poor Eureka O’Hara is voted gassiest, messiest, bossiest and shadiest. She’s also picked as the queen to go home next. Not looking good for our elephant queen.
For the main challenge/runway this week, the queens have to create a captivating character to fit into the animated universe of the WOW Presents Plus series Drag Tots. They have to develop a backstory and create a look from scratch. I’m glad I didn’t have to choose a winner this week, as all of the queens brought strong looks. I mean, look at these…
In the end, Ru declared Ra’Jah O’Hara the big winner, leaving all four remaining queens up for getting the chop. This week’s lip sync assassin is the “Bodybuilder Barbie”, the stunning Kameron Michaels. In honor of guest judge Charli XCX (who Twitter users joked strongly resembled a Drag Race España favorite), the queens performed her hit “Boom Clap.” I don’t know if it was the song or what, but this definitely was not a lip sync for the ages. Kameron won and revealed that the queens chose Eureka to get the chop. But…as she’s packing up to leave, Ru invites her to the main stage, as the “game within a game” is about to begin. Finally.
Since all of the queens are MVPs this week, let’s just us this space to give it up for Ru, who not only looked stunning this week, but also did a little Vogue-ing for the children. You go, Mama Ru!
So, next week we find out the rules of this new game and find out if one queen might be returning to the competition (by now, you know who I would like to come back…and, if you don’t, she’s got a Kickstarter for her new album right now. Just saying. Until then, just remember that if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an “amen”?
