Last week's yellow brick road has led the queens of "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 8 to hardcore politics in episode 7. Don't worry, it's not going to be any of the boring stuff you watch on CNN and Fox News, because RuPaul will bring some glitz and glamour to turn the queens' electoral campaign into an entertaining session of "Shady Politics."
After the elimination of Robbie Turner last week, there are six queens remaining in the show, and they will all be divided into three groups of two. Bob The Drag Queen and Thorgy Thor will be coupled with the people they have been butting heads with, namely, Derrick Berry and Chi Chi Devayne respectively. Meanwhile, BFFs Kim Chi and Naomi Small will be forced to talk nasty things about each other in the challenge of the week.
It would be quite interesting to see how Derrick and Bob will work together, especially because their argument had gotten very animated in the previous season. Although they will be portraying rival candidates running to be the first drag president of the United States, the team mates will need each other's help.
Last week, Thorgy had also gotten very agitated with Chi Chi, going as far as to tell the judges that drag queens like Chi Chi make her angry. Chi Chi herself is not going to be a very willing participant in the challenge, because as fans saw in "B---- Perfect" and "New Age Queens," Chi Chi tends to shut down in the face of conflict. Meanwhile, Thorgy, being Thorgy, will be too caught up in her preparations to even notice that her teammate is not doing her best.
Naomi and Kim Chi on the other hand are too nice and love each other too much to be shady to each other. If they do come through during the challenge, it would be very entertaining to see their dark sides.
