'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 Preview: Queens give women superfans a makeover, fans shut down ignorant haters
'For today's maxi challenge you're going to be making over some beautiful women that just happen to be 'Drag Race' superfans'
Six queens remain and this week's episode is going to leave you gagged, as the queens get ready to give six superfans a head-to-toe makeover.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 will return for Episode 10 on Friday night.
Most fans were excited to see the episode unfold and wish they were among the super fans, however, there were a few who were against the superfans being women. But fans were quick to slam the haters affirming there's nothing wrong with women being on a drag race show.
Last week we saw Widow Von'Du sashay away after she lost the lipsync for life battle to Jackie Cox. With Widow gone, only six queens remain, and the competition is getting tougher by the week. Prior to Friday's episode, the series shared a sneak peek into the episode.
Starting off we see the queens talk about Widow, "I'm going to miss her crazy a** so much. I saw that crazy look in Widow’s eyes and I could see her in her head. It was hard seeing her like that. Widow's inner saboteur was really her doing in!" Heidi N Closet shared.
Once the queens are de-dragged and arriving back at the workroom the next day, RuPaul enters and reveals, "For today's maxi challenge you're going to be making over some beautiful women that just happen to be 'Drag Race' superfans."
RuPaul shared that the six women who were about to walk through the door had no idea that they were getting a makeover, but assume they are here to be a part of the audience. Since Jaida Essence Hall won last week, she got to pick which superfan each queen would give a makeover to.
While fans are excited to see how things unfold, there were a few who were not happy with the fact that the superfans were women. Taking to Twitter, fans shut down the haters revealing that there's nothing wrong with women being on drag race.
"Wait people have a problem that #DragRace had women as superfans?" a fan questioned while another fan shared, "The makeover challenge in the first ever series was to makeover cis women. In this scenario there is literally no change since the show started. #DragRace should not be exclusive to cis gay men and I'm saddened to see it."
"Nothing wrong with women being on #DragRace The problem with the episode is that we are tired of the Makeover Challenge especially since the judges are always extremely inconsistent," a fan said.
Another wrote, "Anyone showing ANY HATE towards the women appearing tomorrow who are SUPERFANS of #DragRace and such inspirations and allies, NEED TO STEP DOWN!!! Women are the majority audiences in all drag shows and always inspire others and drag is all about art and fun and creativity."
"Yeah the topic has been brought up a ton but getting mad at women for being a part of a makeover on drag race is just asinine. First of all, assuming they’re straight is ignorant. Second, why should we get mad at people who wholeheartedly support queer art? #DragRace," a fan wrote.
Another fan added, "The people who are getting angry at these super fans being women are the exact same people who make queer women feel like they don’t belong in gay clubs, it’s supposed to be our safe space too, yet we get treated like outsiders. #DragRace #SuperfanMakeover."
"The new drag race episode hasn't even aired and the cis gay men are already being misogynistic towards the women they bought on for the makeover, how original. #DragRace," a fan shared.
