The Final Four — RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Eight Episode Nine

Everyone is proud to be in the top four. Everyone also wants to be in the top three but as we know that cannot BE.

Jayson Whitmore is introduced, who will be helping them participate in the musical video for The Realness, an awesome song of course. Apparently the queen that is eliminated will also NOT be in the final video for The Realness.

Much of the shooting for the video appears to be in a wind tunnel. Well, the first part of it anyhow. Bob opens the second part and is asked to step it up to a 10 from the five where she is. I can’t stop noticing how many tats Jayson has on only one arm. Chi Chi struggles to dance in a gown and admits she hasn’t ever done it before. At this point her I don’t see her making it to the top three but I couldn’t see Kim Chi making it this far and I was wrong!

Bianca makes a funny cameo.

After the shooting wraps, everyone prepares for the final runway presentation and talks about how they don’t want to go home. Well, who would?

Bob comes out wearing what looks like a sequined tuxedo with killer stilettos. Chi Chi wears an elegant pink gown. Kim Chi looks like she’s going to a party out of Eyes Wide Shut crossed with perhaps a raven. Naomi Smalls (one of my early favorites from when I did her profile) looks awesome in a suit.

RuPaul asks them all to talk to their children selves and shows photos of them as children. Kim Chi gets the most emotional talking to the young version, reminding young Kim Chi that it gets better and she won’t feel lonely. Well, someone had to get super emotional, right?

Everyone is asked why they should be America’s Next Drag Superstar – Bob I think gave the best answer — about being the best and giving back to the drag community. I did also admire Naomi’s answer about being successful being herself no matter what she did.

The judges deliberate, and everyone must first lip sync for their lives. The song is naturally The Realness.

CHI CHI WAS ELIMINATED. See above. Dang.

FINAL THREE : Bob the Drag Queen, Naomi Smalls, Kim Chi. Wow. I still think Bob’s going to take it.
