RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 Episode 1 Recap:
‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ season 12 episode 1 is titled ‘I’m That Bitch.’
The premiere episode involves an introduction session of half the contestants –
Brita, who believes her transformation is similar to Maui becoming Moana; the over-the-top queen, Heidi N. Closet; Gigi Goode’s entry pays a homage to Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow; show’s first-ever French contestant, the free-spirited Nicky Doll; self-proclaimed “Persian Annette Funicello of drag,” Jackie Cox; the sass queen from Kansas City, Widow Von’Du; and the vibrant and quirky, Crystal Methyd. Although the episode lacks the usually loud banters, it isn’t devoid of drama.
Queens are asked to adopt spring and fall looks for the mini challenge. Brita brings Ursula alive, Nicky brings in the NYFW energy, Widow establishes her “ratchet-ass queen” personality, Jackie channels Barbara Eden, Heidi is a psychedelic dream until a wardrobe malfunction, Gigi slays a BDSM-esque dress, and last but not the least, Crystal drops the mic in a gasp-inducing Freddy Krueger gown. After the show’s guest judge Nicki Minaj’s hilarious entry, we see her dropping some truth bombs on Heidi. Ouch!
The Lip-sync event, titled “I’m That Bitch,” puts Widow and Gigi in the bottom two, shocking everyone. However, in the end, Ru reveals that they are actually the top two performers of the night. Widow is the declared the winner of the first lip-sync battle of 2020. As a surprise twist, we learn that no one is getting eliminated this week.
