Too soon? Tongue-in-cheek public service announcements for a spoof charity dedicated to supporting the June Jambalayas, Kahmora Halls, Dahlia Sins and Sojus of the world - spot the link - is the name of the game. Yes, we're delving into the annals of Drag Race history, and you can read on as we explain how to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14 episode 5 online from anywhere now.
*Warning: episode 4 spoilers ahead*
Latina queen Alyssa Hunter parted with a farewell message to her "Perrasss" (one that was gleefully scrubbed out by Kerri Colby, hmmm) and things are getting super malévola this week, as the queens are tasked with, well, rubbing salt into the wounds of all the first-eliminated queens of Drag Races past.
As things stand, Miss Angeria Paris VanMicheals is running away with the $100,000 grand prize, with two wins from four. Stunned to find herself close to the bottom was Kornbread "The Snack" Jeté, who wasn't quite so sympathetic when Maddy Morphosis was contemplating June Jambalaya's demise.
Desperate to be seen this week is Lady Camden, but will she be gagging for another episode of boring old safety when it's time for the big challenge? Read on to find out how to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14 episode 5 online from anywhere now.
