"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 8 is getting very close to the finale, and the top five contestants are all too close to winning the competition to lapse even a little bit. The upcoming Season 8 episode 8, titled "RuPaul Book Ball," will see the queens putting together three separate looks to impress the judges and reveal more about themselves and their drag.
After the close call of last week, Chi Chi DeVayne will get a good start in "RuPaul Book Ball," wherein she will win the mini challenge. The challenge, titled "Everybody Loves Puppets," will see queens putting on puppet shows featuring puppets that look like the queens.
Chi Chi, whose lack of reading put her in the bottom spot in "Shady Politics," will delve into her inner mean girl persona and serve it to Bob the Drag Queen. However, the two people who will be seen taking massive shots at each other will be Naomi Smalls and Derrick Barry.
From the promo, it is clear that the girls are getting on each other's nerves and will be seen fighting on multiple occasions. While Naomi tells Derrick her drag is limited to Brittney Spears impersonation, the latter argues Naomi doesn't do drag, but only modelling.
Meanwhile, the queens will be seen putting on a musical number as a form of tribute to Jerri Blank from "Strangers With Candy." Amy Sedaris, who played the role of Blank in the TV show, will be one of the judges this week, along with her brother David Dedaris.
In honour of David, the queens will create runway looks made out of books. The looks will also be a representation of the drag queens themselves and be able to give the judges a little insight into who they are. The queens will also create looks that give the judges "Baby Drag Realness" aka a tribute to their younger selves and "That's My Mama Realness" aka a tribute to their mothers.
