Fifteen queens entered the workroom of RuPaul’s Drag Race this season to compete for the crown. But which one will walk away victorious? Each week, Billboard will rank each of the remaining queens based on their performances on the show to determine who has the best shot at the crown. Follow Billboard Pride on Twitter and Facebook for updated leaderboards each week.
Last week, the queens were tasked with their first acting challenge, bringing campy comedy to their parodies of Get Out and Black Panther. Following an astrology-themed runway, Scarlet Envy and Yvie Oddly scored a double-win for their superior on-set chemistry and stunning looks. In a lip-sync battle to Britney Spears’ club jam “Work Bitch,” Mercedes Iman Diamond sent Kahanna Montrese home, leaving 13 queens in the competition.
On Friday, the queens will be promoting their worship for pop divas in a televangelist-style talk show challenge.

13. Mercedes Iman Diamond (last week: 12)
While her lip sync to “Work Bitch” was impressive, Mercedes is going to need to take Britney’s advice if she wants to keep her spot on the show. The queen’s performance has been less-than-stellar thus far, from her relatively boring runways to her lackluster performances in the weekly challenges. We’re living for the “opulence” memes, but we need Mercedes to show us some opulence of her own if she wants to stay in the competition.
12. Ariel Versace (last week: 9)
After a middle-of-the-road first week, Ms. Versace seemed to set herself on auto-pilot for episode two, turning in a robotic acting job for Why It Gotta Be Black, Panther and a sub-par Aries look. Ariel may have won some brownie points with Yvie Oddly this week when she owned up to shading Silky in the workroom, but those seem to be the only points the queen has managed to rack up thus far.
11. Ra’Jah O’Hara (last week: 11)
Ra’Jah remains right where she stood last week — and that’s not a good thing. With a passable Capricorn runway look and a poor acting performance, this queen needs to focus less on her fights with Yvie Oddly and more on performing at her highest level.
10. Silky Nutmeg Ganache (last week: 5)
Attitude check: Silky’s pissed. And we get it — hearing that people are talking smack about you behind your back is never a fun moment. But it’s clear that last week, Silky let her nerves get the best of her, and her performance suffered. Hopefully Silky can learn to grow a thicker skin in the coming weeks, or she may find herself lip syncing.

9. Honey Davenport (last week: 6)
There is nothing inherently wrong with what Honey has brought so far this season. But the seasoned professional hasn’t been standing out either, which on Drag Race, is just as deadly. We know Ms. Davenport can bring it, so it’s time for her to take a risk and bring it to the runway.
8. Nina West (last week: 13)
Do you hear that sound? It’s Nina West sighing a breath of relief. After a rocky first appearance, Nina clearly stepped her game up. Yes, her Leo-themed fashion was still a bit…questionable, but the legend showed that she has what it takes to slay in her acting challenge. You betta werk, Nina!
7. Brooke Lynn Hytes (last week: 1)
Category is: peaks and valleys. There is no doubt Brooke Lynn started off strong, but the Nashville queen nearly lost all her good will last week; even a killer runway look couldn’t overpower the star’s mediocre acting job. Brooke Lynn is clearly still a threat to her fellow contestants, but she’ll need to reach higher Hytes if she wants to win.
6. Shuga Cain (last week: 10)
The Shuga tasted a hell of a lot sweeter this week. The New York star showed that she has some major potential, both in her acting and on the runway. Now her job is to make sure that we remember that fact from here on out.

5. Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (last week: 2)
Did Miss Vanjie hit it out of the park this week? No. But she proved once again that her fashion sense is better than ever (those Libra scales, bitch), and that she knows how to pull focus in a good way. Maybe she wasn’t perfect in her performance this week, but this queen isn’t walking backwards any time soon.
4. A’Keria C. Davenport (last week: 4)
The C. in her name must stand for “consistent.” A’Keria nailed her performance as “Rhonda from the DMV” and delivered yet another excellent runway look — frankly, we were surprised she wasn’t given top marks this week. If the Davenport legacy is in the hands of this queen, we’re not too worried about it.
3. Scarlet Envy (last week: 8)
Scarlet went into episode two determined not to be safe, which was clearly the right headspace to be in. The queen destroyed her runway look, gave us leading lady realness in Good God Girl, Get Out and proved that clearly, her teammates saved the best for their last pick.
2. Yvie Oddly (last week: 7)
Two words: robot lion. Yvie brought every ounce of creativity that she had to this week’s runway, resulting in an instantly iconic and memorable look. That, along with her Joan Crawford-level of absurd commitment in the acting challenge, shot the Denver star into the stratosphere this week, making her one of the most exciting queens on the show.
1. Plastique Tiara (last week: 3)
Even with no wins under her belt, Plastique is the queen to beat this season. The Vietnamese star has already shown off her fashion sense, her humor, her acting ability and her on-camera charisma, and it’s only episode two! If she keeps performing at this level, Plastique can expect to upgrade her Tiara to a crown.

I’ve heard about this happening for months yet somehow when it happens I”m still gagged, what a glorious messMarch 15, 2019 at 6:07 am #1202817444
Well good for Nina … Her team won by a long long mile…. Vanjie was killing me ….
the other team was a mess … made the shakequeer teams look good by comparison.
Everyone else on her team
then the bad team
Based on the Challange they all could have gone home….
the lip sync was a mess .. basically they all were a mess … i would have sent Rajah and Honey home for sure , maybe even Sugar … idk they did sooo bad

I personally thought it was disrespectful for them to do so dirty to Queen Mariah and I’m glad Ru didn’t let them get off the hook easily. But that’s probably the stan in me talking right now tbh.
It’s funny because as the episode was going on, I was telling my friend how I thought they all deserved to lip sync for their lives because they all did equally terrible and then the next thing I knew, they WERE! I was GAGGED!March 16, 2019 at 8:26 am #1202818519
Easily the best Drag Race episode in a very long time. Nina’s team really did try to change my mind about how awful this new group of girls is. They all did a great job. I’m a little pissed that Vanjie go so little air time during the critique considering how she absolutely killed that challenge. But she fucked up the runway after 2 weeks of (also red?) looks. So she couldn’t win. Nina deserved her win.
The other team was the mess we’ve come to expect from these challenges. I perfectly understood where Plastique was going with her devil voice, I don’t know why Ross and the other judges were pretending like it didn’t make sense.
Judging was tough, last week too, so I’m definetely not alone in thinking this season sucks. I could even believe that I see Ru noticing it too and being this tough to try and correct their lameness and put them to work and try to make a better season showing them with this 6 person lipsync how awful they’ve been.
Plastique deservingly got called out first as safe.
The eliminated girl, Honey?, deserved to go. I thought 2 girls would be sent home.
Michelle barely spoke during the judging. Something was up. They even forced in many many shots of her just agreeing, as if she wasn’t really there for the entire judging. Ross definitely took over.
The editing on Ru during the workroom visit was also weird.
I could watch this episode again.
Great and extremely funny and sort of shocking episode.March 16, 2019 at 11:40 am #1202818678
This shit turnt the party, bitches!!! It should have been a double elimination, TBH. Get rid of the deadweight that is Honey Davenport and Ra’jah O’Hara (legacy bullshit) in the equally shocking team lip-sync for your life! I couldn’t fucking believe what I was seeing?!?! Ra’jah was the one who pushed for Mariah when they should have done Whitney, but then it was A’keria who said that poking at Whitney’s drug troubles would be cruel. That didn’t stop Monét, did it? Troye Sivan was a great guest judge. The Britney one was fantastic from start to finish. Glad to see Nina West get some shine this episode. A possible Brooklyn/Vanjie romance? Who knew? I can start to see the narrative to end all narratives of Vanjie winning the crown. To go from first eliminated in one season
to winning the next season would be pure insanity, and I’m all here for it! Fantastic episode, and also an Emmy submission tape for the series (better than the season premiere that they always default to) and Ru herself (the pep talks in the sew room were very Emmy-performative).
