Season 2 of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" premiered on Logo TV this Thursday, Aug. 25, and it definitely was a fierce episode. "All Star Talent Show Extravaganza" saw every queen performing an art of their choice, ranging from singing to gymnastics in front of a live audience in order to please Ru.
This time around, being the topper in a challenge comes with a lot of power. It not only keeps you immune, but also gives you the right to eliminate one your competitions. Yes, you read it right. The winner of the week will get a cash prize of $10,000 and other gifts, and also the power to send home one of the girls who landed in the bottom three.
Major spoilers for "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" Season 2 episode 1 titled "Talent Show Extravaganza" ahead:
On Thursday night, we saw Roxxy Andrews, who performed a burlesque routine, and Tatianna, who performed spoken word, as part of their Talent show, were the top two. Later, they lip-synced for their legacy to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off." Roxxxy was lauded as the winner of the lip sync and she decided to send Coco Montrese home.
The queens in the bottom three were Adore Delano, Coco Montrese and Phi Phi O'Hara, and clearly Roxxxy is closest to Coco, considering they are both from Season 6. However, Roxxxy had revealed multiple times in the premiere episode that she is no longer the girl who plays mind games or tries to eliminate her competitions, but wants to prove that she is a formidable queen who wins the show purely based on her talents.
Roxxxy is clearly a fan of Adore and believes she has more to offer in the competition. And Michelle was a little unfair towards her. Phi Phi O'Hara, much like Roxxxy, wants redemption on the show, and has a lot more to show in terms of how her drag has evolved. Among the bottom three, Coco was the one person who did not show much growth, despite the fact that she replaced her orange makeup with pink.
In the upcoming Season 2 episode 2, the queens will be seen competing in one of the most anticipated challenges of every season: the Snatch Game. It remains to be seen who ups their game when it comes to impersonations and mimicry.
