RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11: Episode 5 Discussion Thread

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

Last week, the queens competed in a Rusical choreographed by Yanis Marshall and judged by Tiffany Pollard (who was her regularly iconic self) and Joel McHale. Mercedes Iman Diamond was sent home by Ra’Jah O’Hara in a lipsync to “Living in America” by James Brown. Mercedes was sweet, and she brought a perspective to drag and to RuPaul’s Drag Race that we haven’t seen before on the show. Check out her exit interview with Michelle Visage below:

This week, the queens compete in a Halloween-themed ball. They have to present three distinct looks. Here’s hoping they turn it out and impress guest judges Cara Delevingne (yaas) and Elvira (making her first appearance on the show since season 4).

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!
