“I just want to be clear, because you guys are saying you worked on characterization. And that, to me, was very shaky. It was middle of the road.”
Are you ready to be cooped, gooped and mother-tucking gagged hunties? Because Drag Race royalty has returned for the upcoming episode of season 10, and it’s none other than legendary dancing-diva Alyssa Edwards.
For this week’s main challenge, the queens are tasked with performing in RuPaul’s ‘PharmaRusical’. Due to their joint-win for the mini-challenge, The Vixen and Asia O’Hara become team captains.
Aquaria, Monique Heart, Dusty Ray Bottoms, Yuhua Hamasaki, Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams and Eureka O’Hara are chosen for Asia’s team, whilst Kameron Michaels, Miz Cracker, Monét X Change, Blair St. Clair and Mayhem Miller are under The Vixen’s leadership.
In the preview, Alyssa assumes the mantle of choreographer (usually helmed by Todrick Hall) and coaches the queens on the main stage. Once the queens show her what they’ve concocted, she delivers the face crack of the CENTURY.
“So, this is what y’all worked on, though? Y’all worked on the lines?” asks Alyssa. “I just want to be clear, because you guys are saying you worked on characterization. And that, to me, was very shaky. It was middle of the road.”
Watch Alyssa Edwards make her Drag Race comeback below.
Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Thursdays on VH1, and one day after on UK Netflix.
To celebrate ten years since Drag Race’s premiere, the season features 90 minute episodes and the ru-turn of Untucked on TV.
“To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we’ve pulled out all the stops. The queens, the challenges and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts. And I’m thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1,” Mama Ru said in a statement.
“‘Cause, henny, if you ain’t watching Untucked, you’re only getting half the story. Okurrr?” She added: “While preparing for season 10, I realized that one of our contestants was 11 years-old when we first launched Drag Race.
“The fact that we’re still here and still going strong is because of our talented queens. They are the heart and soul of the series. And as they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of drag, so does Drag Race.”
