The tea so far? Orion is no longer part of the Drag Race universe after deciding to perform a comedy sketch without any yuks. It was a mis-step that almost ousted DeJa Skye too, but she redeemed herself last week with a soulful lip-sync of Alicia Keys’ Fallin’ and sent Daya Betty home instead.

Maddy Morphosis, Jasmine Kennedie, and Jorgeous were declared safe, while Angeria Paris VanMicheals bagged a tidy $5000 after a barnstorming performance of an original song that declared she was “your southern belle from ATL” and “country as hell.” She was the total package and Ru was living for it.

This week it’ll be balls to the wall as the remaining 12 contestants compete in an epic design challenge, each hoping to impress Mama Ru, Michelle Visage, and reality TV star Christine Chiu in their bid to snatch the crown.

Will your favourite queen be belle of the ball? Or will they get sent home with their tuck between their legs? Don’t be left in suspense: read on to find out how to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14 episode 3 online from anywhere now.
