RuPaul’s Drag Race Recap: What to Expect When You’re Expecting

Boys and ladyboys, it’s our tenth episode: In an effort to extend the fabulousness of Season Four for another week (think of the ad revenue!), the show is bringing back a departed queen. And since this is not the first season they’re doing this, it’s only a matter of time before the mysterious holding place for our fallen ladies gets a sponsor.

Sooooo…. any last-minute guesses who is returning? Well, Dida would be too soon. Willam would interfere with them promoting the reunion show (we’ll learn she smuggled a phone or something equally anticlimactic soon enough). Jiggly? The judges would have sent her home sooner if they had gotten the chance. London, Paris, Milan? Eh/meh/nah.

It appears we’re going back to Episode Five (remember February?) to ressurect a little piece of Puerto Rico: Kenya Michaels!

Oh. Hooray?

I don’t really feel much about this. I’ll always remember Kenya as the queen who bombed as Beyoncé at Snatch Game—passing out from too many drugs! And gave the most confused performance of a prison guard in Drag Race’s extensive history.

So I must agree with the impromptu shirts our girls made before her arrival: Top Four and No Mo!

Alas, I’ll just grin and bear it.

Oh, awesome… that’s the perfect pun segue for the mini-challenge: decorating stuffed bears! Because, well, the producers blew their budget on that wet t-shirt contest and bedazzling a stuffed animal is clearly an appropriate test for America’s next drag superstar.

Well, at least the rules are easy to explain. See this pile crafts? See that bear? GO!
