RuPaul's Drag Race season 8 has found its four contenders in Kim Chi, Bob the Drag Queen, Chi Chi Devayne and Naomi Smalls and soon one of them will become America's Next Drag Superstar. The popular reality show by Logo TV will return with episode 9 this Monday (2 May) where the drag queens will try to perform their best for a music video that will decide their future for the rest of the show.
A promo released by the network reveal that the top four contestants are having a tough time while filming the music video for The Realness and in the process are hurting themselves too.
In the previous episode, Derrick Barry, who loves to impersonate Britney Spears was shown the door out of the contest but before leaving the show the drag performer wished all the best to the remaining contestants but the performer revealed that she is rooting for Kim Chi to win the title.
"I love Kim Chi's drag. I think it's so over-the-top, and she is by far the best representation of the title. But I do find winning qualities in all of them," she told The Advocate.
She also revealed her spats with Naomi Smalls, one of the final four contestants in the popular drag show. "I knew she was not really happy with my drag, and it was starting to come through, so it was kind of inevitable. We took low blows at each other in the puppet challenge, but that was the challenge. I think that once we kept talking about things, more stuff came up that was actually the root of the issue. She didn't think I should be there because I am character-based instead of drag persona."
RuPaul's Drag Race season 8 episode 9 will air at 9pm EST on 2 May on Logo TV. In case you miss the episode during its air time, click here to watch it online the next day (only in the US).
