7:59 p.m. – Previously, on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars”! In last week’s sixth episode BenDeLaCreme won the challenge and the lip sync battle, but shocked his fellow queens when he decided to quit the competition. Meanwhile, Morgan McMichaels was brought back to the reality TV show after previously being eliminated in the first episode. With five talented queens still in the running, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will end up on the bottom tonight.
8:01 p.m. – Ben’s decision to eliminate himself was such a gag, but the other queens seem to understand that he did it because he was uncomfortable with the structure of the show with him having to eliminate other contestants. That’s fair, but what would BeBe Zahara Benet‘s decision have been? We don’t get to know! She’s refusing to tell the other girls either decision.
8:05 p.m. – RuPaul Charles brings Nancy Pelosi into the workroom to provide the queens with some encouragement to help them finish the competition. They’re all touched that someone with so much power would visit them, but equally she’s touched that the queens exert their own power every day as proud drag queens. With that, it’s time for Ru to present this week’s main challenge–to play award winning female characters in a raunchy girl comedy, “My Best Squirrelfriend’s Dragsmaids Wedding Trip.”
8:08 p.m. – As a “welcome back gift,” Morgan is tasked with assigning roles to the other queens with the five characters in the sketch: BeBe as The Queen, Morgan as Beige Swan, Shangela as Actavia, Kennedy Davenport as La La and Trixie Mattel as Sharon Frockovich. Trixie had hoped for either La La or Beige Swan, but didn’t get either while the other queens are content with the choices Morgan made for them.
8:16 p.m. – Ross Mathews is on deck to help the queens during the taping of the sketch. Right off the bat Shangela is getting the chuckles from Ross, and to her great relief so is Trixie! BeBe, Morgan and Kennedy on the other hand all fall a little flat in their first run-throughs.
8:23 p.m. – For the runway, the queens are donning their best “red for filth” look. While getting ready, the queens let Trixie know that sometimes he’s fairly standoffish. He acknowledges that it’s true to some extent, but some of the other queens aren’t buying it and say that Trixie has a reputation as one of the series alum that isn’t always the most welcoming when on tour. Kennedy turns the conversation toward herself and admits to feeling like a second thought when he attends appearances and hopes that All Stars will help him become a first thought queen.
8:36 p.m. – The judges’ critiques gave BeBe high marks for a gorgeous runway outfit, but on the flip side he faced criticism for a low key performance in the film. Both Trixie and Shangela wowed with their over the top looks as well as their perfectly over the top runway outfits. Comparatively, Kennedy underwhelmed on both fronts and Morgan took heat from Ross for the decision to play Beige Swan, a role he thinks should have been the least desirable because of its degree of difficulty.
8:39 p.m. – Unsurprisingly, Shangela and Trixie were named the top performers set to lip sync for their legacy, leaving all three of the others in the bottom and vulnerable to being eliminated by the winner.
8:44 p.m. – Backstage for deliberations, BeBe is defensive and confident about his performance this week, fully expecting both Shangela and Trixie to keep him safe another week. Shangela, as a close friend, is certain that he won’t be eliminating Kennedy and instead uses the time to ask Kennedy for advice about whether to choose BeBe or Morgan home.
8:54 p.m. – Performing to “Freaky Money,” Trixie brings the hard hitting choreo while Shangela relies more heavily on comedy with a fat suit and slapstick gags that have the judge panel rolling with laughter. In one of the best lip syncs I’ve ever seen, Shangela takes the win!
8:57 p.m. – Shangela’s decision of who to eliminate ultimately comes down to which queens have been in the competition since the beginning and despite their friendship outside of the show he sends Morgan home.
8:58 p.m. – It’s down to the final four and next week is the finale! Ru is asking the fans to tweet her which queen they think deserves to take the crown.
