The 12th episode of season 10 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” airs June 14 on VH1. For the mini challenge, the remaining four queens must guest star on “What’s the Tee?” podcast with judge Michelle Visage. The maxi challenge requires them to write, record, and perform their own verse to RuPaul Charles‘ hit song “American.” Be sure to watch the video preview of the episode, which is named for this title track from Ru’s 2017 album, below. You will see some of the girls tackle these tasks with a tad too much enthusiasm.
Our exclusive Gold Derby predictions are forecasting that Aquaria will win the main challenge. And we expect that this sassy 21-year-old Brooklynite will also go on to take the title at the end of this season of “Drag Race.” Conversely, we are predicting that Kameron Michaels— a 31-year-old who hails from Nashville — will be eliminated at the end of episode 12. Do you agree? Be sure to make your predictions at the bottom of this post.
Kameron barely escaped being bounced at the end of episode 11. She and Miz Cracker had landed in the bottom two based on their combined efforts in the maxi challenge: to present two characters on the runway as representations of their best and worst selves. That meant they had to lip sync to “Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6. Kameron stepped up her game, with her enthusiastic performance. By comparison, Miz Cracker’s rendition of the song seemed stale.
