RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11: Episode 2 Discussion Thread

Hey, kitty girls! Welcome to another episode of season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race!

In last week’s season premiere, fifteen queens (fourteen new competitors and the returning Vanessa Vanjie Mateo) entered the workroom and were tasked not only with a photoshoot with past Drag Race contestants but with a design challenge as well: creating a look with materials from former Drag Race legends reflecting the queens’ own personal styles. Brooke Lynn Hytes won the main challenge with a Detox-inspired bodysuit, even if A’keria C. Davenport gave her a run for her money in a stunning look inspired by Bebe Zahara Benet.

At the end of the episode, Soju was sent home by Kahanna Montrese after an energetic lipsync to “Best of  Both Worlds” by Hannah Montana. Soju was a charming, interesting queen, if somewhat prone to over-sharing.

Her YouTube show Shot with Soju is lots of fun and she’s a very good interviewer; I’d recommend checking it out.

This week, the queens star in the first acting challenge of the season: sketches inspired by Black Panther and Get Out. Guest judges are Black Panther star Sydelle Noel and Saturday Night Live cast member Bobby Moynihan. I can’t wait to see how this turns out.

As per usual, this thread is for discussing the episode both as it airs and afterwards, so exercise judgment when it comes to using spoiler tags. Especially spoilery details are advised to be placed in spoiler tags.

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