Season 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race UK has been packed full of twists and turns but none more shocking than the result of the elimination on tonight's episode (Oct 28).
The episode saw the queens do their best celebrity impersonations for the legendary Snatch Game. Kitty Scott Claus impressed the judges with her Gemma Collins impression, but it was Ella Vaday who stole the show with her explicit impersonation of celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.
At the bottom of the pile was River Medway Medway and Choriza May. Sadly, River failed to nail the spirit of reality star Amy Childs, while the judges were left wanting more from Choriza's Margarita Pracatan.
The girls were forced to lip-sync to Lulu's 'Shout'. However, in a shocking turn of events both River and Choriza failed to impress Ru. "I needed to see more out of that lip-sync," RuPaul told them.
Ultimately, River and Choriza were both told to sashay away.
As you can imagine, Drag Race UK fans were absolutely furious with RuPaul's decision to send both Choriza and River home.
This series of Drag Race is becoming a car crash that I just can’t stop watching. And I don’t hold the contestants responsible for a single ounce of the tomfoolery.— Dula Peep (@RobDavid_) October 28, 2021
They deserve better than all of this blatant production-forced drama and meddling. #DragRaceUK
Surprisingly, this is only the third time there's been a double elimination in Drag Race herstory. In season 5, Ru sent both Honey Mahogany and Vivienne Pinay home, while Laila McQueen and Dax ExclamationPoint were given a double sashay in season 8.
