This week, eliminated contestant Naysha Lopez will make a re-entry into the cross-dressing reality series and will lead a team against Naomi Smalls's team. In the previous episode, RuPaul made a mysterious phone call and asked the person on the other end to return to the show as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Drag Queen Bob hinted at the return of a former contestant.
In this week's episode, Acid Betty, Derrick Barry, Kim Chi and Thorgy Thor along with their team leader Naysha will face the first challenge of dressing up as a Supreme Court judge. In the second round, the contestants will be asked to enact two scenes of the super-hit series Empire.
The show had eliminated Dax Exclamationpoint and Laila McQueen in episode two. Laila, however, thought her elimination was "unfair".
"I did think it was unfair. They did not put in the episode when they asked me to explain my outfit. I explained [how] I put so much time into the jacket, and I said my bottom isn't as good as the top. I wasn't going to fight with them. I knew the strong points of my outfit, and I knew the weak points. But, I don't know how [Derrick Barry] got away with wearing a goddamn skirt, because how many goddamn seasons [have the judges] been like 'Don't rely on your body!' and [Derrick] didn't make anything," she told EW.
It will be interesting to see how other participants react to Naysha's entry.
