Last nights Drag Race started out on a somber note. The queens entered the Werk Room and were discussing the latest elimination when Trinity K Bonet decided to speak up and share some big and personal news with the other queens. Trinity reveals that she had been diagnosed with HIV back August of 2012. She explained she wanted to let them know because she wants to be advocate for people and let them know it’s ok to talk about HIV. The other queens were all nice to her and hugged it out after hearing the news.
Moving on to more lighter moments of the episode this weeks mini challenge put the queens “library” and they were told to read one another. There were many great one liners from this moment. It seemed Adore, Darrien Lake and Joshlyn Fox taking most of the heat. Trinity K Bonet kept it real by throwing shade at herself after trashing everyone else. Ultimately, it was Darrien Lake who had thrown the best shade in Ru’s opinion and she was named winner of the challenge.
Next, came the reveal of the main challenge, a 90’s style Rap Battle! The queens had to come up with their own lyrics to a pre-recorded sound and track entitle “Oh No She Betta Don’t!” Since Darrien Lake had won the mini challenge she was able to chose the queens she wanted on her team. She chose Langaja, Bianca Del Rio, Adore, and Courtney Act. Leaving the other team being made up of BenDeLaCreme, Milk, Trinity K Bonet and Joshyln Fox. There was a tense moment in the challenge in which BenDeLaCreme brought up being hurt by Darrient Lake not picking her for her team. She wanted to know why and Darrien Lake told her it was none of her business. All of the Queens seemed to struggle once they were put in front of this weeks guest judges Eve and Trina. Especially Darrien Lakes team, Darrien could not keep herself from forgetting the lyrics.
This weeks runway look for the elimination show was “Crazy, Sexy, Cool”. Adore Delano was named the winner of the challenge. Trinity K Bonet and Milk were named the bottom two for the week. After barely surviving last week, she couldn’t quite cut it again and Milk was sent to sashay away.
