November 18, 2019 2:55 PM - Season 1, Episode 7 - Subscribe

Only four queens remain. Tensions are high and emotions are charged as they are challenged to give family members a very special drag makeover. BAFTA winner Michaela Coel joins Michelle Visage and Alan Carr on the judging panel as another queen is eliminated from the competition.

Ru introduces the mini challenge, a Bitchfest using Puppets - Everybody Loves Puppets! Baga receives The Vivienne, Divina obtains Cheryl, The Vivienne with Divina and Cheryl is left with Baga. Divina wins the mini challenge. For the main challenge, each of the remaining queens has to use her own drag aesthetic to makeover one of their family member as a part of her drag house. Baga and The Vivienne are surprised by their moms while Cheryl and Divina will makeover their sisters.

After the runway, Divina wins the maxi challenge and The Vivienne is declared safe. Ultimately, Baga and Cheryl are in the bottom two. After they lipsync to "Tears Dry on Their Own" by Amy Winehouse, Baga is declared the winner, and Cheryl, having landed in the bottom two for the second time, is eliminated from the competition.

Wow, Baga. Way to insult your mom on international television. Just stop talking! The Xtra power rankings make the point that Ru is not going to crown someone who repeatedly insulted their mom on TV, so I don't think Baga will win.

I think this episode drove home for me how great Cheryl was. So lovely! We all knew that she wasn't going to win, but I liked watching her along the way. I also had a hard time figuring out who was who between her and her sister in drag.

I guess I'm cheering for Davina to win? I think this is going to be one of those seasons that I am going to feel just a shrug at the winner. Sure, whoever. I like Viv too.

I just sat there in shock for Baga’s critique. She said nothing right. I wonder if that spoiled her chances in Ru’s eyes. Hopefully a strike against her at least.

I saw this headline the day after this episode first aired. Wonder if they still feel the same.

Wow - you could definitely see the cracks in Baga's relationship with his Mom. On the entirely opposite side of the spectrum The Viv, Chery and Davina's relationships with their family members was so lovely and they were all so game to jump in and support their family members.
