Season 8 of Logo TV’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is off to a great start, with Episode 1 “Keeping it 100!” showcasing some of the most talented Drag Queens in the world. After the sad departure of Naysha Lopez, the rest of the queens will be seen competing in a dance challenge to win the favour of RuPaul in the upcoming “B—h Perfect.”
A dance-based episode, “B—h Perfect” will see Acid Betty, Chi Chi DeVayne, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, Dax ExclaimantionPoint, Derrick Barry, Kim Chi, Laila McQueen, Naomi Smalls, Robbie Turner and Thorgy Thor, battling it out to stay in the show for one more day.
The episode will feature a group challenge, wherein the queens will be divided into two teams that will take part in a “Pitch Perfect” style riff-off. Ester Dean, who played Cynthia-Rose Adams of the Bardem Bella in the “Pitch Perfect” movies, will be seen as a guest judge in the episode.
It is understood that Acid Betty will pick a fight with a fellow queen in the coming episode. Thorgy Thor, who has been a friend of Betty for a while now, says in the promo for “B—h Perfect,” “Betty is so artistic, she gets away with being a f—–g a—–e.”
The voice over for the promo also suggests that the challenge for the week might hit a nerve for some contestants. Considering Betty is seen rolling her eyes at ChiChi Devayne, one of the most talented dancers in the competition, it looks like those two might be seen butting heads over artistic differences.
The eliminated queen of the episode will be the second to leave the competition after Naysha Lopez, and there is a strong possibility that Kim Chi, despite being the cutest contestant, could go home, because she is a weak dancer.
The episode is also pegged to have a real shocker moment, and RuPaul is seen talking to someone on the phone, making all the contestants extremely nervous. Could the shocking news be that two queens are going home on the same day, or that no one will be sent home?
