Even though we saw the first big twist of season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race coming, it still left us in shock over the fact that the lip-sync losers were sent to the “Porkchop Loading Dock” to await their fate. Surprisingly, we actually didn’t see anyone get the “pork chop” during the first episode, with the queens learning they’d have to vote someone off at the beginning of episode two, although their pick didn’t actually go home either. In fact, no one went home during episode two or three — all the queens were safe after separate performances to the RuPaul classics “Condragulations” and “Phenomenon.” It wasn’t until the episode four acting challenge that eliminations were finally put into place.
With such an unprecedented start to the season, there’s no telling what other tricks and twists RuPaul could have up her sleeve as it progresses. However, we do know that we’ll have to eventually say goodbye to each of the queens before one is crowned “a winner, baby.” See who was eliminated ahead, and be sure to check back each week to see who is still in the running for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar.
