Here's Who Was Eliminated in the 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 8' Premiere

In the double episode season premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 8, not one but two queens were told to sashay away. The two-hour premiere (which was coupled with two hours of Untucked) sent the queens through a three-look runway challenge, a singing and dancing challenge and a sketch comedy challenge. The producers took a leaf out of Coco Montrese's book and said, "I'm not joking bitch."

Each episode concluded with a tube of lipstick sending one of our All Stars packing. But don't worry, they aren't gone for good just yet. Thanks to the Fame Games twist this season, the eliminated queens will be sticking around in episodes of Untucked to compete for $50,000.

Who was eliminated in the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 8 premiere?



Monica Beverly Hillz

Our first week of All Stars 8 saw two queens sent packing in a double-stuffed, two-part premiere. In the first hour, the All Stars each served three looks on the runway. With the "Fame Games" theme this season, each provided runways for fame past, present and future (giving Christmas Carol realness). They also had to write verses for and perform to the underground club hit “Money, Success, Fame, Glamour" (which is shockingly not a RuPaul hit). Kahanna Montrese won the week, but lost the lip sync battle to Aja, the lip sync assassin. That meant that the votes from the rest of the queens were tallied, and Monica Beverly Hillz became the Porkchop queen of the season. She returned in the second episode of Untucked however to show off a sickening spiderweb dress.

Naysha Lopez

In part two, the remaining 11 queens staged a Drag Race version of Saturday Night Live called RDR Live (that's RuPaul's Drag Race Live but it did take me a second because usually the acronym used for Drag Race is RPDR). Jimbo won the challenge with Naysha Lopez and Kahanna Montrese finding themselves at the bottom. Since Kahanna had won the first part of the episode, the writing was a bit on the wall (perhaps in lipstick) that Naysha would be the one sent home. When Jimbo lost the lip sync to this week's assassin Pangina Heals (who had previously sent Jimbo home in UK vs. The World), it was up to the other queens' vote to see who went home. Ultimately it was Naysha who was sent to the Fame Games.

Who were the lip sync assassins on the premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 8?

The two-part premiere included two lip-sync assassins. In the first episode, Aja, who competed on Drag Race Season 9 and All Stars Season 3 returned and beat Kahanna Montrese in their lip-sync. In the second episode, Pangina Heals, who was a judge on Drag Race Thailand and competed on UK vs the World faced off against Jimbo. Pangina won meaning that the prize money rolls over to next week where a $30,000 cash prize will await next week's winner if they can beat the lip sync assassin.
