In Week 8 of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11, the premise of the mini challenge was to pitch your own self-help book, which needed to be filled with inspirational messages and gorgeous photos with only 20 minutes to get into quick literary drag. The winner was Silky who won a $1,000 credit from Post Mates. The theme for the Maxi challenge was the Snatch Game at Sea.
Ru brought in Jinkx Monsoon, who slayed The Snatch Game in her season.
The girls impersonated:
Silky – TS Madison
Nina – Harvey Fierstein and Joanne Worley
Yvie – Whoppi Goldberg
Shuga – Charo
Brooke – Celine Dion
A’keria – Tiffany Hadish
Vangie – Danielle Bregoli
Plastique – Lovely Mimi
This week’s special guests who were the contestants for the Snatch Game were: Clea Duvall and Tony Hale. The runway category is “Sequins.”
The top three this week were Shuga, Silky and Nina with Silky taking the win and a $5,000 gift certificate from Vacaya toward a LGBT vacation. The bottom two were Brooke and Yvie.
The lip sync will go down in RuPaul history with the girls flipping and splitting and killing it. As Shugah Said “Come on Cirque Du Soleil.”
There was no way Ru could send either of these two home after this lip sync.
