RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10: Episode 9 Discussion Thread

Hey, Miss Vanjies!

Last week saw us bid farewell to The Vixen, who found herself in the bottom two for the third time in a row and was sent home by Asia O’Hara in a fun lipsync to “Groove is in the Heart”. The Vixen is a fierce performer outside of the show (seriously, look up some of her lipsyncs if you haven’t already) and proved to be one of this season’s most-discussed contestants.

Condragulations to miss Kameron Michaels, who won her first challenge of the season after an on-point Cher impersonation — Chad Michaels (no relation) would be proud — and a lovely Glitterific champagne-coloured look. (Honestly, almost everyone had a really strong showing on the runway last week. Praise was particularly due to Aquaria’s Met Gala-ready outfit, Vixen’s vibrant dress, and Asia’s clown couture.)

This week, the queens have to star in a scripted acting challenge — a drag-themed version of the show Westworld. 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. 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 (eg. videos they’ve made), feel free to do so without spoiler tags.

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