RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10, Ep. 4: In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream, “YASS QUEEN!”

Last night… on RuPaul’s Drag Race: Yes, climate change is real and, yes, there is a hole in the ozone above Antarctica from all of the hairspray RuPaul used in the ’90s. But even a climate-driven apocalypse is not going to stop drag queens from serving fierce looks.

The queens competed in The Last Ball on Earth, serving looks fit for Alaskan Winter Realness (bikinis), Miami Summer Realness (furs), and Martian Eleganza Extravaganza (looks fit for a party on Mars after Vogue declares it “the new Earth!”). With three looks to whip together using the kind of synthetic materials that are crushing the environment like a duct-tape tuck, the episode was all about the runway.

Aquaria slayed with look after look after look, and was coronated queen of the challenge over her NYC frenemy Miz Cracker. The bottom two queens were Monet x Change in a self-described “future black Marilyn” look that she’d hacked and slashed from a strip of red patent leather like she was Penny’s doctor in Dirty Dancing, and Dusty Ray Bottoms, who paired gold tulle and gold glitter with Alexis Michelle’s rejected Liza Minnelli Snatch Game wig.

Considering Dusty Ray Bottoms still had the hot-glue burn marks from this challenge in her confessional interview, it was no surprise that she went home on a Lip Sync For Your Life to Nicki Minaj’s “Pound The Alarm.” But let us take a moment to salute the other queens who proved that Mars is giving them LIFE!!!

Most Likely To Accept Miss Congeniality In A Nude Bodysuit: Asia O’Hara

Not only has Asia, Mother of Drag Queens, made outfits for Dolly Parton, Gladys Knight, Alyssa Edwards, Kennedy Davenport, Dallas’s ice-skaters, Dallas’s high-school and college dance teams, and “anybody that comes through Dallas,” she also helped make literally every queen’s outfit this week. The only person whose outfits she didn’t make? Her own. She admitted that two of her outfits were unfinished on the runway.

Most Likely Queen To Get Her In Trouble With Her Sugar Daddy: Aquaria
Things that Aquaria may have: a fake I.D., a natural gift for emotional manipulation, and, based on her Miami Summer Realness look, a stable filled with sheared My Little Ponies. Things that Aquaria may not have: a rotating cast of sugar daddies, an NYC rumour Miz Cracker floated that Aquaria denied. “If you look like a million bucks, people assume you come from a million bucks,” she said. Woah, woah, woah, no one is saying ANYONE in this scenario has a million bucks.

Most Likely To Have A Sugar Daddy: Miz Cracker
Miz Cracker fretted that asking the question sent the wrong message. “I don’t want to imply that I don’t want a sugar daddy,” she said. Apply within! Yes, that’s a euphemism!

Most Reason To Fear The Brooklyn Education System: Monet X Change
Actually, an environmental apocalypse might be a welcome reset. Monet x Change’s teachers supposedly taught her that British people had American accents before they came to America, at which point they acquired British accents. Even though this does not make sense, this feels like a conversation we can tackle right after we determine whether or not the Earth is flat.

Most Likely To Record An Audiobook Called The Bible, Okurrr?: Monique Heart
You know how the Bible says to turn the other cheek? Monique Heart, feeling betrayed by Mayhem Miller, prefers this one: “What is done in the dark will be brought to the light, mother darling.”—Book of Monique

Next week, on RuPaul’s Drag Race?: The Queens appear on confrontational daytime talk-show Bossy Rossy, starring Ross Matthews as the love child of Jerry Springer and Wendy Williams, a baby first detected by a Maury Povich pregnancy test. Canada’s country queen (like, she literally had her own stamp) Shania Twain and The Good Wife and The Good Fight’s Carrie Preston guest judge.

Will burning all that drag from this week finally fix the environment? Will Ross Matthews get mean enough for a talk show called Bossy Rossy? Will Shania Twain be impressed much?

Find out on episode five of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 10 on Thursday at 8 PM E/P on OUTtv.
