RuPaul's Drag Race Recap: 'Two Old Queens Stand Before Me...'

RuPaul's Drag Race Recap: 'Two Old Queens Stand Before Me...'
Following an Emmy Award-worthy introduction from Stephen Colbert (“Okurrr?“), the remaining six queens on Thursday’s Drag Race buckled in for an evening of butts, bots and Boniva.

Mini Challenge: Pants Down, Bottoms Up

In a game very true to its name, this week’s mini challenge was basically Memory — only instead of matching words or pictures, the queens picked various shirtless gentlemen to drop their pants in the hopes of matching pairs of undies. It was basically just an excuse to check out some butts and yell stuff like “Do you you want fries with that shake?”

Winner: Aquaria

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ top 6 power rankings: Eureka, Aquaria and Monet X Change are the three queens to beat
After the elimination of The Vixen on episode 8 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 10, the competition that tests for charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent is down to its top six: Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Eureka, Kameron Michaels, Miz Cracker and Monet X Change. We’re expecting this season to follow the format of season 9, which means we have two more regular episodes before a grand finale featuring a top 4 lip sync showdown. Who will make it to the end and has what it takes to be crowned America’s next drag superstar?

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: Bruce Miller to Remain Showrunner, Signs Overall Deal with MGM and Hulu

RuPaul's Drag Race: 13 Favorite Moments From "The Bossy Rossy Show"

Who could resist a trashy talk show? Not these queens! The remaining contestants created some iconic talk show TV segments on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 Episode 5.

On the set of "The Bossy Rossy Show" during the Maxi Challenge, the queens were paired up together to create drama-filled scenes that would leave people wanting more. The Jerry Springer-like show saw a cheating scandal (with a cactus), a girl copying another girl, and several strange addictions to name a few.

Unfortunately, not everyone lived up to their characters.

Drag Race Recap: Which Warring Queens Made Peace... For Now?
RuPaul’s Drag Race was dripping with poetic justice on Thursday — and with pickle juice, but that’s a whole other thing.

Following her explosive exchange with Eureka during last week’s Untucked, The Vixen entered the next phase of the competition with a fresh game plan: “Eureka needs attention, so instead of giving her a lot of negative attention, I’m just going to ignore her — and that’s going to drive her crazy.” (Little did Vixen know, it would also light a fire under Eureka’s “sexy baby” ass.)

10 TV Show Episodes that Swap Genres, From ‘Black Mirror’ to ‘Supernatural’

When a show’s been running for a while, it can fall into a routine. The main characters face a monster. Someone close to them dies, but they manage to escape every time. They get into a fight over why they fight monsters. A few episodes later, they make up and fight a new one. Sounds boring, right?

Well, yeah, but it’s also what’s kept CW’s “Supernatural” on the air for 13 seasons. The fantasy-horror series has managed to keep a wide audience long after its originally planned five-season arc, mainly through fan dedication and the show’s knack for strange, genre-swapping episodes, like this most recent episode.

This week, the Winchesters ended up in the “Scooby-Doo” universe: Switching the usual drama for animated hijinks, the episode was highly anticipated because of how unusual it was and has since received positive receptive from fans and critics for the change of pace.

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10's Eureka O'Hara Talks the Pressures of Competing as a Returning Queen

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10's Eureka O'Hara Talks the Pressures of Competing as a Returning Queen
Eureka O'Hara's journey back to RuPaul's Drag Race has not been an easy one. The plus-size queen was an early standout in season nine of the reality hit, until an injury to her knee sustained during the second week forced RuPaul to remove her from the competition in week five. Though she departed with an open invitation from Mama Ru to return and fight for the title of America's Next Drag Superstar once she was healthy and able, there was no guarantee that she'd be able to return right away for season 10. "Honestly, I didn't know 100 percent for sure until a couple weeks before filming. My doctor hadn't released me yet," Eureka (real name David Huggard) told E! News over the phone...
