The upcoming Season 8 episode 3 of "RuPaul's Drag Race" will see a new contestant joining the queens of the season and unfortunately, she will have to deal with the bitterness of the existing contestants. Regardless, she will have to suck up and be a team player so as to win the group challenge and impress Ru if she hopes to stay beyond one week in the competition.
Fans will remember how Ru had ended the previous episode with a mysterious phone call. She had told whoever was on the receiving end that she had to eliminate two of her queens on the same day. She further asked them to come to the show and take a spot to compensate for the extra loss.
Since the episode aired Monday, March 14, fans have been wrecking their brains trying to figure out who is coming to the show. One possibility is for a queen from one of the earlier seasons to return. Ru may give one of the deserving contestants like Ginger Minj! of Season 7 or Courtney Act of Season 6 a second shot becoming America's drag superstar.
The second possibility is for Ru to bring Naysha Lopez, who was eliminated in the first episode back. Considering she was eliminated right after her first challenge, she didn't get to showcase much of her talent on the show. Ru, who was clearly enamoured by her beauty, may bring her back to see what else Naysha has to offer.
Another option would be a wild card entry, which would mean a drag queen who didn't quite make the cut for the first lineup makes it to the show. Ru could give one lady who almost made it to the show another chance to follow their dreams. Ru's true intentions will be revealed when Season 8 episode 3 airs Monday, March 20.
Meanwhile, It is understood that the queens will be displaying their theatrical skills in the upcoming "RuCo's Empire." The queens will get divided into two teams and will be asked to act out a scene inspired by Fox's hit TV show "Empire." Their acting, or in this case their overacting, skills will be judged by Ru and Tasha Smith, who plays Carol Holloway in "Empire."
