After a non-elimination lip-sync last week, the six remaining queens are back to battle it out to be America’s Next Drag Superstars. Let’s get straight into it…
For the mini-challenge this episode, they brought back the super fun puppet “reading” challenge where each queen were assigned a puppet of their competitor and perform bitchfest with it. Improv queen Jackie Cox was expected to win the challenge and she did while season’s frontrunner Gigi Goode failed miserably and it’s something that you should be skipping when you re-watch the episode.
For the maxi-challenge, the queens were tasked to write and perform a one-queen which should be within Jackie and Heidi’s ally but lo and behold, another queen actually stole the show!
EGOT winner THE ONE AND ONLY Whoopi Goldberg was also there to guide them through this challenge. Lucky bitches! The girls were given good advices and it looks like it is still anyone’s game because none of the queen stood out during their mini-rehearsal with Whoopi and Ru.
As for their performance, I thought Jackie gave the best skit. I love his timing and I love that he started slow and had a build-up. She’s hands down the best this week, IMO.
The close second is Crystal who presented a hysterical performance! It was funny but wasn’t as good as Jackie’s. Gigi’s performance was actually pretty decent but it’s obvious that all throughout the performance, she was second-guessing herself and look nervous as hell.
Heidi’s routine started okay but it went flat midway and did not recover. The same happened with Jaida who closed the show after Sherry Pie’s inconsiderate 17 minutes performance that was supposed to be 5 minutes only for each queen. I thought Sherry should’ve been in the bottom for this reason alone.
The runway theme is “Color Purple” and the queens up their game for this special runway!
Jaida for me had the best runway look! She’s beautiful, opulent and just ethereal hunty! I daresay that this is her best outfit to date and may be one of the top three outfits of the season!

Gigi wore a Daphne from Scooby Doo costume and she looks flawless as usual! Jackie’s outfit was basically something that Crystal would wear and Crystal is Crystal. She’s a Purple Cow Stunning! Sherry as per usual looks like an old lady. Ugh, I’m getting tired of her face. Heidi, as much as I loved her looks like a pageant girl representing Ramseur.
Lip-sync for your life was between Miss Essence Hall and the blessed and highly favour, Heidi___. I thought they both killed it but Jaida was able to save her ass immediately after having a wig reveal reminiscent of Prince’s haircut while lip-synching of 1999. It was one of the best lip-syncs of the season if I’m being honest.
Heidi will be terribly missed! Her confessions are just total TV gold! A couple of days from today, we’ll know who will make it to the final 4 or perhaps final 3 due to Sherry Pie’s disqualification.
Who do you want to see in the final four?
