RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10: Episode 8 Discussion Thread

Hey, Miss Vanjies!

Last week saw us bid farewell to Monique Heart, the heart of Season 10, whose endless supply of catchphrases and GIF-worthy moments unfortunately came to an end after a lacklustre performance in the Snatch Game and a very difficult-to-watch lipsync in which she effectively gave up against The Vixen. It was an unfortunate farewell for a queen known for her effervescent personality — but she’s superstar material and has lots of gigs lined up, so I think she’ll be just fine.

Condragulations to Aquaria, whose hilarious Laura Benanti-inspired portrayal of Melania Trump garnered Aquaria her second win of the competition! She also shone on the runway with an unconventional Mermaid Fantasy look reminiscent of Steven Meisel’s “Water & Oil” editorial for Vogue Italia in August 2010.

This week, the contestants believe in life after love as they perform a musical tribute to Cher! Will the queens snap out of it and be strong enough to rise above their competitors, or will they be moonstruck and have their performance take them home? Let’s see! Remember to stay around for Untucked after the main show.

As always, this thread is for discussing the show, but not everyone is able to watch it at the same time. Therefore, please use discretion when discussing specific spoilery details of the episode and Untucked (challenge details, queens’ performance, top/bottom placements, etc.) Having everything spoiler tagged isn’t necessarily conducive to a proper discussion, so use your judgment. If you want to discuss the season 10 queens outside of their performance on the show, feel free to do so without spoiler tags.

In the words of Tatianna: thank yew, and enjoy tonight’s episode!
