'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 13: Amid Kandy Simone drama, who gets eliminated and who makes it to the Top 4?
With the queens taking on an acting challenge this episode, it's their final chance to make it to the Top 4!
Season 13 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' might have proven to be the longest one yet, but after much waiting and a whole lot of patience, it is finally here — Episode 13, the one in which fans finally get a glimpse at the top four queens. With Symone sending Utica packing the last episode, the queens are now down to just five of them, with the season finale inching closer.
Having dealt with a roast challenge last time, this week, the queens have to take on an acting challenge. Each of them has to play a part in 'Henny, I Shrunk the Drag Queens', a drag queen parody of the movie 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids'. As always with the challenges on the show, fans are treated to a mix of chaos and hilarity.
As RuPaul puts it: 'This special effects extravaganza takes place on the drag race set, where you'll be portraying teeny, teeny, tiny drag queens, fight for your very survival."
With five different roles, the queens get right down to it, deciding who they would all like the play. Rosé swoops in for the character of Brandy, 'the sarcastic one, a real wise crack', while Gottmik calls dibs on Chardonnay, 'the whiny one'. Olivia Lux, much to the group's surprise, opts to play Ginger Ale, a character that's described as 'real sweet and real stupid'.
Seeing that Olivia has consistently received feedback about the good girl person she has put on stage through the whole season, the judge has felt as though all her performances have turned into one note. With the competition drawing to a close, Olivia's choice is a dangerous one, seeing that she decides to go with a character that the judges have already seen time and again and have grown tired with the same.
When it came to the main role of Dominique Pinot Noir, both Kandy Muse and Symone swooped in, claiming the role. As with a previous tiff regarding character selection, where Rosé and Denali fought for a role, the queens settled it by having a sing-off. But for an acting challenge, it puts the whole team in an awkward spot.
Neither of the queens are willing to back down from their desired role, leaving them both in a tough spot. With the runaway theme for this episode being 'Pocket', the queens put out some interesting looks.
But, turns out, Kandy Muse's tiff with Symone didn't work in her favor. She finds herself in the bottom two with Olivia Lux, whose choice clear caused her a spot in the safe zone. The two battled it out to Cher's 'Strong Enough', as they fought for their spot in the top four. Kandy Muse ultimately ended up being the one who stayed, while Olivia had to sashay away.
With Rosé, Gottmik, Symone and Kandy Muse making it to the top four of Season 13, the competition is as tough as ever. Their score sheet is as follows — Symone currently has four wins, Rosé clocks in at three, Gottmik at two and Kandy Muse at one. Looks like the race is reaching its final lap!
