RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 Episode 9 release date is what keeps fans up at night and rightly so. It is an American reality TV series that indeed started the Drag Race franchise RuPaul. The producers for the series have changed through the years but with the start of the 15th season, we saw a shift with MTV. Throughout each season of the series, we witness RuPaul taking on queens from around America and some other countries and finding America’s next drag Superstar.
Obviously, it is a great way for the underrated queens to come on the screen and showcase their talent for publicity. We see RuPaul serving in the form of a host as well as the mentor to the Queens who prepare for their fashion and modeling rounds on the show. She guides them through everything they feel insecure or unsure about. RuPaul also sits on the judging panel later when the competition commences.
The format of the episodes is very simple. We see mini and maxi challenges taking place. Mini ones are quite easy and small tasks that need to be completed after being announced by RuPaul at the start of every episode. As for maxi challenges, they are tougher and longer and need the contestants to make use of their skill set aptly. These can even be group challenges or solo ones.
The winner of these maxi challenges receives monetary prizes and sometimes immunity to elimination as well. With the 15th season of the series, we are witnessing the largest cast in the history of RuPaul’s Drag Race ever. The winner of the season will take home a huge cash award of 200 thousand dollars. A total of 16 queens, the biggest cast, is taking part this time and they are doing so well till now. As for the judges, we see Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley as well as Ross Mathews. TS Madison also is a judge on the show.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 Episodes Recap
In the most recent episode of this week titled Old Friends Gold, we saw the main challenge being announced first thing. The contestants are required to write and perform lyrics in the form of old lady girl groups. This was a team challenge. The queens thus divided themselves. We saw Banjo Bitches made up by Luxx Noir London and Marcia Marcia Narcia along with Mistress Isabelle Brooks and Saline EsTitties.
The theme for the runway was later announced by RuPaul and it is set to be Tie Dye to Die For. After their respective performances, a few queens such as Aura Mayari and Mistress Isabelle Brooks along with Sasha Colby get great reviews from the judges. Aura Mayari wins the challenge for the week. Anetra is safe for now but she got a negative review. Thus, Jax and Robin Fierce were thus put up to take part in a lip sync battle to In Your Room by The Bangles. Robin Fierce loses this round and thus had to pack her bags at home.
In the most recent episode 8 of the season, we saw that the queens were required to take part in the lip sync battle LaLaPaRuZa Smackdown. Randomly, any queen is chosen to perform and she can opt for her opponent for the round. The opponent thus chooses the song for the battle. The last queens left in the round were Anetra and Jax who had to compete in order to survive on the show. Ultimately, Anetra won the round and Jax was eliminated.
