RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 Episode 1 Recap:
The premiere episode kicks off with the six lip sync battles. The 13 contestants need to battle it out for a spot in the competition before entering the werkroom. New York-based Kandy Muse and Joey Jay from Arizona are up first, and Joey has the first claim to safety. The second pair for the week is Denali vs. Lala Ri. While Denali describes herself as “Icy, spicy, and a little bit dicey,” LaLa Ri claims herself to be “an Olive Garden pasta with Popeyes chicken tenders on the side for razzle-dazzle.” And the winner? LaLa Ri!
Round three pits Symone against Tamisha Iman, and Symone emerges as the winner. In the fourth pairing, we have Gottmik and Utica Queen, a transgender man and a celebrity make-up artist. He introduces himself by saying, “So… born a girl, transitioned into a guy, dress like a girl for money — very that.” Rose and Olivia Lux are up next, and Rose is declared unsafe. Finally, Tina Burner is pitted against Kahmora Hall and Elliott With Two Ts. Tina makes it to the top and is given the green chit to continue her journey.
The queens who are declared unsafe in the lip-sync challenges are assigned seats below a wall of pork chops. RuPaul announces: “You all have a chance to return to the competition. But first, you must give one of your fellow queens the cop. Let the voting begin!”
