Which All Stars 4 queen will earn a spot next to Chad Michaels, Alaska and Trixie Mattel in the Drag Race Hall of Fame? Each week, Billboard will rank the queens based on their performances on this season, as well as seasons past, to determine who is the lead for the crown. Follow Billboard Pride on Twitter and Facebook for updated leaderboards each week.
Last week, the previously eliminated queens returned 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. The episode ended in a nail-biting finale where Monique Heart and Latrice Royale tied — effectively allowing Latrice to re-enter the competition, without sacrificing Monique.
On Friday, the seven queens face off in a club-themed challenge.
7. Latrice Royale (last week: N/A)
Just about every queen who returns after being eliminated only lasts an episode, so if we’re keeping in tradition of seasons past, we’ll be bidding adieu to Latrice again.
6. Valentina (last week: 6)
The odds aren’t in Valentina’s favor; she’s the only remaining contestant who’s been up for elimination twice now. It’s looking less and less likely that our Latina diva will make it to the finals — but hey, a major role in Fox’s Rent: Live is hardly a dud of a consolation prize.
5. Monét X Change (last week: 4)
Honestly? It would have worked in Monét’s favor to not have immunity last week. As the season’s most skilled lip syncer, her inevitable win against any of the eliminees would have been a perfect follow-up to her knockout Lady Bunny roast from the week prior.
4. Trinity the Tuck (last week: 3)
Trinity started her turn on All Stars 4 with two wins in the first three episodes, but her luck has been fizzling out these last couple of episodes. It would still be shocking to see a final four without her, but she needs to whip up some magic — fast — if she wants to remain a contender.
3. Naomi Smalls (last week: 5)
Finally! While RuPaul and the judges may not have declared an overall winner for last week’s lip sync festivities, the episode was a major win for Naomi. While she’s been buoyed by strong performances all season, she is the only queen (aside from Latrice) who hasn’t pulled off a challenge win. If she manages to end her unlucky streak this week, she’ll be headed for the finals with a significant amount of momentum.
2. Monique Heart (last week: 2)
Judging by the type of competitor Monique has proven to be, her close encounter with fate (even if it was a fake-out) after her lip sync showdown with Latrice Royale will provide the fire she needs to slay for another day. While the Kansas City queen’s track record has been a bit patchy this season, it’s safe to say that she’s made up for her less-than-stellar eighth-place finish on season 10.
1. Manila Luzon (last week: 1)
Stats are stats, America! Manila is the only queen that can brag about two achievements: 1.) She’s the only competitor with three wins this season; and 2.) She’s the only queen who hasn’t been up for elimination. Not a bad look for a season 3 queen!
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
