On Friday night (Jan. 11), the queens of All Stars 4 prepared eulogies — or Ru-logies — for Lady Bunny’s mock funeral. The competitors were each tasked with roasting the drag icon.
After roasting Lady Bunny, the queens served all-white looks for an angelic runway. Manila Luzon and Monét X Change were declared the top two, and then a twist: The remaining four queens (Naomi Smalls, Monique Heart, Trinity the Tuck and Valentina) were all up for elimination.
Manila and Monét each chose who they would eliminate and competed in a lip sync battle royale to Aretha Franklin’s “Jump to It.” Mama Ru declared both queens winners, leaving the four potential eliminees shaking in their heels: Did Manila and Monét choose to eliminate different queens, or did they both pick the same person?
We may never know, as RuPaul provided yet another twist: “Tonight, no one is going home.” Mama Ru also declared that “All Stars rules are now suspended until further notice.” The six queens returned to the Werk Room only to discover a lipstick message on the mirror: “Get ready to lip sync for your life, life, life, life.” As the queens pondered the message, Lady Bunny surprised them from behind the mirror, telling the girls to turn around — revealing that the four previously eliminated competitors, Latrice Royale, Gia Gunn, Farrah Moan and Jasmine Masters, were back and dressed in their funeral attire.
What does it all mean? We’ll find out next week, as RuPaul ended the episode teasing, “Now remember, if you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love a RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars cliffhanger? Can I get an amen?” AMEN!
Per usual, fans had a lot to say about the episode. Here’s our favorite reactions.
