The much awaited RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 aired last night and it was quite a shocker. The usual entrance to the work room showed that there are a lot of New York City queens so an alliance is already expected. We can sense rivalry between Aquaria and Miz Cracker since the two are frequently mistaken for one another or as twins. We actually didn't notice until some of the queens pointed it out so now we cannot unsee it. It will be a challenge for the two to get out of that mistaken identity. 

The first mini challenge was to impress the previous seasons' queens of their dance moves on the runway. The Rupaul's Drag Race All Stars 3 winner Trixie Mattel was there together with fellow All Stars winner Chad Michaels. Season  winners, Jinkx Monsoon and Bob the Drag Queen didn't miss the chance to take the first look at the season 10 queens. Iconic season queens like Manila Luzon, Raven, Katya Zamolodchikova, Adore Delano, Mrs. Kasha Davis, Darienne Lake, Victoria Porkchop Parker, Derrick Barry, Morgan McMichaels, Laganja Estranja, Detox, Kim Chi, and many more were there, too. It was a nerve racking experience seeing the winners and iconic drag queens critique the neophytes from head to toe. In the end, Mayhem Miller won the challenge.

Another shocker was when RuPaul announced that there's another queen she would like to call during the elimination. Everyone was dumbfounded when RuPaul called in Farrah Moan, but in fact it was Christina Aguilera who later joined the other judges. The first major challenge was the Drag on a Dime look in which Mayhem Miller was once again declared the winner because of her glove couture dress. Unfortunately for Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, they lip synced for their lives to the tune of Christina Aguilera's Ain't No Other Man. In the end, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo failed to impress the judges and was the first queen of the season to be sent home. That's a wrap for the House of Mateo.
