The competition is getting tougher on "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 8 and it looks like the pressing is getting to the queens. In the upcoming Season 8 episode 4, fans will see a few contestants snapping under pressure while preparing for their "New Wave Queens" challenge.
As the name suggests, the challenge will require the queens to form 80s style New Wave girl bands and perform an originals song live in front of an audience. The girls will divide themselves into three groups, one based in friendship, other on the city they are from, and the rest get stuck with each other.
Team Les Chicken Wings featuring BFFs Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls and Robbie Turner chooses Punk as their style, while New York based drag queens Bob The Drag Queen, Acid Betty and Thorgy Thor will perform a party number as the band Team Street Meatz. Naysha Lopez, Chi Chi Devayne and Derrick Barry who get allotted to the same band after being left out from the other form Team Dragometry.

Based on the promo for "New Wave Queens," Bob and Thorgy will have some creative differences while writing their song. Thorgy says "Now I know I can't even speak without being attacked," as Bob rolls his eyes accompanied by "Oh my God!"
To be fair, the three queens of the group are all strong performers having gathered praises from the judges in almost every challenge. And while Betty's attitude problem has been an issue in the past, it looks like she is taking a chill pill for this challenge.
Derrick and Chi ChI also seem to be having problems while working on their song, especially because the former feels Chi Chi is not interested in being part of the group.
The girls will have to write their own lyrics, make their own music and impress RuPaul, Michelle Visage and the guest judges Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, and Lucian Piane. Following the group challenge, the queens will also have to impress the judges with their runway looks. The theme for the upcoming episode is Neon Realness.
