Blessed be the fruit that is the return of eliminated contestants. You could not ask for more drama than this iconic twist! RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 6 brought our favorite handmaids back for a night of fights, fury and Spice Girl fierceness.
The five eliminated queens (Aja, Chi Chi, Milk, Thorgy and Morgan) returned to reveal the twist that has been teased throughout RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3. These queens would be competing for a chance to return to the game.
Sure, the twist was obvious and expected, but the resulting backlash could not have been predicted.
Ben DeLaCreme won the lip sync for your legacy and chose Morgan McMichaels to reenter the game. However, when it came time to eliminate a current queen, Ben chose to eliminate herself instead. (Yes, you read that right! The reigning front runner left the game.)
Making up the rest of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 6 were two musical performances, a visit by a Spice Girl, and workroom confrontations that brought out eyerolls and tears.
Below, we picked out our 11 favorite moments from "Handmaids to Kitty Girls" that left us gagging. What were your favorite moments?
RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 airs Thursdays on VH1 at 8/7c.
The Five Handmaids
There was a lot of debate caused because of the ending of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 5. Why were there only three people featured and not all five? Did everyone not get a shot? Luckily, that scene was only a twist and all five eliminated queens would be getting a shot to reenter the game. While the end visual was shocking, knowing that all five would be getting a fair shot was a better feeling. Plus, we got to see The Handmaid's Tale costumes for another round!
Refusing The Spot
After her poor performance all season, Chi Chi was never going to win RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3. She knew it, the contestants knew it, and we all knew it. When it came time to campaign for a spot back in, Chi Chi refused to be considered because she knew she wasn't ready. That decision took a lot of growth; it was a wise move and one that we should respect. Chi Chi recognized this season wasn't her time.
Who doesn't love the Spice Girls?! Come on, they're incredible. When Trixie started freaking out over Emma Bunton being a guest judge on panel, all we could do was smile and say, "Same, girl, same." We'd be right alongside Trixie and giggling like a schoolgirl.
Aja, The Rap Star
Aja was killing it behind the mic in her Kitty Girl role. She had Adam Lambert loving it and all of the queens were impressed by the rhythm she was bringing. It's a shame she didn't earn a spot back in because she was the best of her team's Kitty Girls. However, at least she can take pride in knowing she slayed it behind the microphone.
Morgan McMichaels may have been eliminated first, but she's not letting that disappointment blow out her fire. After fighting with, and then making peace with, Ben DeLaCreme, Morgan won the spot back in. We can't wait to see Morgan compete, especially since we didn't get a good look at the potential she would've brought to the season. Her return is her second shot, so she better bring it!
Obviously we're excited to see Emma as a guest judge on the panel; simply read the #9 entry on this list. Emma was cute, funny and she had great critiques for the queens on the runway. Plus, she was down to take part in RuPaul's judging panel sketch. Emma is always welcome to be a judge again.
