The synopsis below may give away important plot points.


  • This week's episode gives the girl's a mini challenge that partners them all up. Mystique is the only queen left on her own as there is an odd amount of them left in the competition. They are asked to give RuPaul fashion dolls a 'bad girl' makeover. RuPaul decides that Sahara/Antoine Ashley and Pandora/Michael Steck have the best doll however there is no mini-challenge prize.

    The maxi challenge sees the girls split into two teams. As the winners of the mini challenge, Pandora is made leader of one team and Sahara the leader of the other. They are tasked with creating a burlesque performance in a Hollywood night club to one of RuPaul's singles. Pandora chooses Morgan/Thomas White, Sonique/Kylie Sonique Love, Tatianna/Joey Santolini, Raven/David Petruschin and Nicole/Bryan Christopher. Sahara picks Jessica/José David Sierra, Jujubee, Tyra/James Ross and Mystique/Donté Sims. Raven comments that they have to sell sexy but they have Nicole on their team who 'isn't sexy'. Tyra clashes with her team as she wanted to be on Pandora's team and declines to participate in any of her team's rehearsals.

    RuPaul throws a curve ball at the girls before their performances; they not only will be performing their routines but they'll be selling cherry pie gift certificates on the street, inspired by RuPaul's film, Starrbooty (2007). The team that makes the most cash tips during their dance and sells the most gift certificates will be declared the winner. Along with RuPaul and regular judges, Santino Rice and Merle Ginsberg are special guest judges, Dita Von Teese and Kim Coles.

    During the judges' critiques on the runway, Sahara's team are revealed to have made the most money both inside the club and selling gift certificates. Sahara is also declared the overall winner of the challenge and wins immunity from the next week's elimination as well as a $1,500 gift card for Sequin Queen. Most of Pandora's team are given mixed reviews of their performances (apart from Morgan who has immunity). Pandora is given praise for her performance but her runway outfit isn't taken well. Sonique is praised for her fantastic dance performance but her selling ability is widely scolded as rude. Tatianna is chosen by her team mates as the weakest member however Raven and Nicole brought in the least amount of money and therefore end up in the bottom two.

    Raven and Nicole perform a Lip Sync for Your Life to En Vogue's single, 'My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)'. RuPaul decides to keep Raven in the competition and Nicole is told to sashay away.
