This week on “’s Drag Race” it’s down to the final four queens…and this week they’ve gone to the dogs.
For the mini challenge the queens had to drag out a puppet like one of their competitors and have a “bitchfest”. Sharon chose a puppet that resembled Chad Michaels. Latrice’s pupper resembled Sharon Needles, Chad’s puppet resembled Phi Phi O’Hara. And Phi Phi’s puppet resembled Latrice Royale. Chad and her Phi Phi puppet won the mini challenge.
For the main challenge the queen’s must create fashions fit for a ball with three themes; first is daytime dog park realness, next is pooch in a purse party girl, and last up is Canine Cutoure – high fashion inspired by a real live dog.
As winner of the mini challenge, Chad Michaels got to assign the real live dogs and runway partners to each queen – Hunter went to Phi Phi, Babyface went to Latrice, Callie went to Sharon Needles, and Chad chose Spelan.
On her visit to the workroom RuPaul tells the queens that Rose McGowen and Wynnoa Judd will be the special guest judges for the night. And then RuPaul announces that the queen must put on a Broadway style opening number – think “Cats” but with dogs. RuPaul assigned Chad to lead the production, but Phi Phi jumped in and took charge.
Judging the queens this week are, Santino Rice, Rose McGowen, , and RuPaul.
It’s the top four so RuPaul asks the queens who should not be in the top three. And the gloves came off…Phi Phi and Sharon were the two queens that they would have eliminated.
After deliberating with her fellow judges, RuPaul awarded the winner to Sharon Needles. Chad Michaels is up for elimination for the first time. Phi Phi is safe; which leaves Latrice Royale in the bottom two and up for elimination.
Chad and Latrice had to lip sync for their lives to “No One Else on Earth” by Wynonna Judd. RuPaul decided that Chad Michaels to chantey you stay but Latrice Royale had to sashay away. Latrice thanked RuPaul for the opportunity Ru had given her.
And with that Chad, Sharon, and Phi Phi will battle it out for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar”.
