The eliminated queens of All Stars 4 returned Friday night (Jan. 18) in an attempt to reclaim their spot in the competition. In the show’s first-ever “Lip Sync LaLaPaRuZa,” the eliminees were paired up against remaining contestants for a lip sync showdown. If one of the eliminated queens won a duel, they would be placed in the competition, leaving their partner to be evicted on the spot.
Last week’s winners, Manila Luzon and Monét X Change, leaving the eliminated queens to choose from the other four competitors: Latrice Royale chose the queen who sent her packing, Monique Heart, while Gia Gunn, Farrah Moan and Jasmine Masters chose Naomi Smalls, Valentina and Trinity the Tuck respectively.
Each pair lip synced to popular RuPaul songs and Trinity, Valentina and Naomi quickly proved they were worthy of their top six placement in the competition. Finally, Monique and Latrice duked it out to “Sissy That Walk,” in the most nail-biting showdown of the episode. RuPaul declared Latrice the winner, effectively allowing the Drag Race legend to return to the competition. But in a twist, she told Monique she was also a winner and that she would not be leaving the competition.
Per usual, fans had a lot to say about the episode. Here’s our favorite reactions.

“I have no hard feelings toward Monique but also if I saw her in the street I’d run her over and leave her for dead.” – Latrice basically
