RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11: Episode 12 Discussion Thread

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

Last week, the remaining six queens had a highly entertaining slap-reading mini challenge and were tasked with transforming previously-eliminated season 11 contestants into members of their own drag family. Brooke Lynn Hytes and her makeover partner Plastique Tiara won the challenge. Silky Ganache and Nina West landed in the bottom and, after a lipsync to “No Scrubs” by TLC that had Ru going “Meh”, Nina West was sent home.

Nina is a verifiable legend in the drag community, not only for winning Entertainer of the Year 2008 with an iconic living gown but for her incredible philanthropic work as well, raising over $2.5 million for LGBTQ organizations through the Nina West Fund at the Columbus Foundation. I’m sad to see that she didn’t make it to the finale.

Check out her exit interview with Michelle Visage below:

Nina had better win Miss Congeniality this season and be on All Stars. I’m just saying.

This week, the remaining five queens record verses for RuPaul’s new song “Queens Everywhere” and perform the song in a choreographed number. By the end of this episode, we will know our top four. This is the last challenge of the season, and the last opportunity for the queens to show their skills before they lipsync for the crown in the grand finale.

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!
