RuPaul's Big Opening: Part 1 Recap

This weeks guest judges were Adam Lambert and Mike Ruiz. 

The mini-challenge this week was Jumping off a platform photoshoot. Laganja Estranja won the mini-challenge and got to decide which queen got which themed box for the main challenge. 

The main challenge was to design an outfit inspired by a TV show using the themed boxes. After the runway, the queens were separated between safe and bottom, and after hearing the judges critiques, the queens untuck in the back before being brought back to the main stage. BenDeLaCreme was crowned the winner of the first main challenge, receiving a custom jewel package by Fierce Drag Jewels. Kelly Mantle and Vivacious were placed in the bottom two, and had to lip sync for their lives to the song "Express Yourself" by Madonna, resulting in Kelly Mantle being eliminated. 

Kelly Mantle's farewell message to the other queens was: "Love u girlz! Rock your Pussies! XOXO Kelly Mantle P.S. Eat my Bacon!".
