After a turbulent (and very interesting) premiere, the “Pork Chopped” queens have to eliminate a competitor – but the challenges don’t stop there. This week’s program features more lip-syncs and some complex dance moves. Here is our Ru-cap of the latest episode of RuPaul Draw Race.

The ‘Pork Chopped’ queens have a lot to discuss
Fortunately, not all of the “Porked-Chopped” queens will move away from the competition. Instead, like All-Stars, the queens who lost their own lip-syncs vote on who will be the first actress to be released from season 13. Talk about a gag-worthy turn!
Elliott doesn’t know how to build and Rosé says, since they haven’t even seen the lip-syncs, they have to vote based on first impressions. Just like All-Stars, there are lipsticks with the names of each girl and, individually, the contestants vote for who should go home. RuPaul then makes a presentation over the speaker – it’s a link.
Elliott and Utica are the ones selected for elimination. The queens pick up again from those two at the bottom. Elliott gets the official “Pork Chop” and is disappointed that she did not have a say in the decision. Well, Rosé says, the others are one step closer to the crown.
The ‘Pork-Chopped’ queen, Elliott, isn’t just going home
The kiki-ing-winning queens are in the Werk Chamber, wondering if the eliminated competitors will come. RuPaul walks in and confirms that another queen is returning to the competition. That’s it Elliott, who will join the other actors in the Werk Room. Gag.
RuPaul says queens will be eliminated in the tournament, yes, but that doesn’t mean they’re lost. They are all winners, baby. So, it’s time to start with a little challenge on the theme of runway, Season 7 style. They cater to two scenes and everyone is excited.
As they prepare, however, Elliott starts some drama with Kandy, asking if she’s nervous to go home early because her mother was already drawn to the show. Kandy says no, whistling about how that was a shady thing to ask.
Throughout the little challenge, the queens serve a scene during the day and night, and all goes well until they return to the Werk Room. Kandy Muse is still talking about her conversation with Elliott. RuPaul then shares what the biggest challenge is. They write original verses for RuPaul’s song, “Condragulations” and come up with a group dance.
Prediction of condragulations
Tina Burner is feeling very confident because of her boy band history. Olivia Lux is also a musician, so this is her chance to shine. Elliott, on the other hand, feels a lot of pressure, as he is the group’s “red-headed deputy leader”.
The queens go to the mainstream to discover the dance. Unfortunately, no one wants to take control but everyone has something to say. Symone is embarrassed about getting the moves down but Elliott just wants to move on, they have a lot of ground to cover!
Finally, Elliott, with her backing in a dance floor, takes over, but Tina Burner doesn’t have much confidence in her. At the same time, Gottmik gets a little caught away from their own words. Hopefully everything will work out as they run out of time.
Gottmik and Olivia Lux talk about Gottmik ‘s uncomfortable time on the mainstream, but now she feels a lot better. The contestants then ask Elliott why she came back and she tells them. Elliott basically says that more people are expected in the Werk Chamber soon.
It’s time for another minute ‘lip-sync for your life’
It’s time for the first season 13 of “Condragulations. “Competitors go out on the mainstream with silver balls and sick clothes. Then, on the runway, the section is “lamé you stay.”
When it comes to the judges ’critics, they like Gottmik’s fashion, Kandy Muse’s spontaneity, Lala Ri’s confidence, Olivia Lux’s performance, Symone’s star quality, Tina Burner’s attention to detail, and Elliott’s energy.
After some deliberation, RuPaul concludes that Symone and Olivia Lux are the 2 best queens of the week. The rest are safe, meaning no one will be eliminated. However, the two lip-synced lips went to “Break My Heart” by Dua Lipa for a silver top of $ 5,000. Symone is a winner, baby!
