10 of the best “OPPALANCE” memes from Drag Race season 11


The second episode of Drag Race season 11 provided fans with the most meme-worthy moment of the series since, well, two months ago when Valentina and Naomi Smalls introduced us to the iconic Club 96 on All Stars 4.

Oh, and of course… Vaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanjie!

During the challenge, in which the contestants starred in drag queen parody versions of blockbuster films Black Panther and Get Out, Mercedes Iman Diamond struggled with her pronunciation of ‘opulence’.

Shortly after, she became a viral sensation, so in celebration, we’ve rounded up our ten favourite memes on the net of “OPPALANCE! YOU EARN EVERYTHANG!” Enjoy!

For the next challenge, the queens are tasked with putting their pop icon knowledge to the test when they have to perform in live diva worship chat shows, presumably in two opposing groups.

According to Drag Race’s official Twitter account, they will be worshipping at ‘the Church of Britney and the Church of Mariah’.

Aussie queer icon and superstar Troye Sivan will make his judging debut alongside Scandal star Guillermo Diaz.
