Jan is frustrated that she is not getting enough attention from RuPaul’s Drag Race judges.
For the past weeks, the New York-based queen felt that the judges failed to see her potential and what she can bring to the table. She will discuss how she feels about her underdog status in RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 episode 8.
The preview of the next RPDR season 12 episode showed Jan crying heavily after the previous week’s elimination. The other queens, however, believe that she is more upset about the fact that she did not win the maxi-challenge.
Jan had high expectations coming into the Rusical challenge as she is known for her singing and dancing skills. It remains to be seen if she can do better in the upcoming episodes.
Recap of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 episode 7
Before watching RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 episode 8, here is what happened in the previous installment of the VH1 show.
There was drama at the start of the episode after Heidi N Closet and Widow Von’Du slammed Gigi Goode and Jackie Cox for their comments. According to Vulture, the tension carries through most of the episode, with the queens trading barbs once in a while.
The queens faced Madonna: The Unauthorized Rusical in the episode, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and model Winnie Harlow guest-judging. The contestants had to portray the Queen of Pop at different points of her career in the public eye. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez loved the performances so much that she declared it as the best musical challenge in the show’s history.
As for the runway, the theme was Night of 1,000 Michelle Visages. The theme was a tribute to the RPDR season 12 judge, who coincidentally, calls herself the world’s biggest Madonna fan.
Gigi won her third maxi-challenge, firmly establishing her as the frontrunner of the season. She previously won the high-profile Ball and Snatch Game challenges.
Brita finally went home after four consecutive weeks of placing low in the competition. She put up a fierce fight against Heidi in their lip sync faceoff to Madonna’s Burning Up.
What to expect
The queens will be testing their marketing skills in RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 episode 8. Act 1 of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 episode 8 showed the remaining queens in what looked like a modified version of the Reading Challenge.
According to Screen Rant, it also previewed the maxi-challenge where the queens will have to create a product for the fictional lifestyle brand Droop. Moreover, RuPaul will bring in Chaka Khan as the guest judge in this week’s episode. The Through the Fire songstress aptly strutted in with a glossy, beach-appropriate outfit on the runway.
