'RuPaul's Drag Race': Fans React to Top 5 Elimination Shocker
The queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race saw double on Thursday night's (June 7) episode, as the top five competitors were tasked with creating two runway looks: one that showed them at their very best and another that depicted their inner-saboteur. The episode was a master class in editing, as the queens interacted with their evil twins throughout the challenge and during the judges' deliberation.
Miz Cracker and Kameron Michaels ended up in the bottom, lip syncing to "Nasty Girl" from Prince protégés Vanity 6. Given it was Miz Cracker's first trip to the bottom -- and Kameron's third in a row -- the NYC queen was the odds-on favorite to win. Last episode, Kameron knocked out Miz Cracker's NYC sister Monét X Change, and in the one prior, she was granted a double-save after delivering an iconic performance with Eureka O'Hara. But in the end, Kameron continued to hold her title as season 10's lip sync assassin, turning out a sensual floor dance, knocking out the season's fan favorite.
Fans took to Twitter to express their mixed opinions. Some felt the decision was fair, while others were sad to see Cracker sashay away. Here are a few of Billboard Pride’s favorite reactions to the elimination:
I live for Kameron but that lip sync was a toss up. Miz Cracker shoulda stayed based on her track record...just my opinion— Johnny Cakez (@johnnycakez7) June 8, 2018
