“Whatcha’ Packin’”: Michelle Visage Sits Down With This Week’s Eliminated Queen

"It was nothing like I expected it to be."

This week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race had everything from photobombing celebrity photos to climate change and a trip to Mars.

With a super extended runway challenge that included 33—!!!—fierce eleganza ensembles, and a lip sync for the herstory books, one queen sadly had to sashay away, and this week it was New York’s own, Dusty Ray Bottoms.

On the latest installment of Whatcha’ Packin’, everyone’s favorite squirrel friend, Michelle Visage, sits down with Dusty to talk about her time on the show and if she felt it was her time to leave the competiton.

“I had the time of my life. I really did,” Dusty tells Michelle. “It was nothing like I expected it to be. If Drag Race was a hurricane, I don’t feel like I was super grounded in that [hurricane].”

Dusty’s time on Drag Race might be over for now, but he is already planning his duets with Michelle when they go on their Drag Race tour together, so you will be seeing plenty of Dusty Ray Bottoms in the future.

Watch them talk about musical theater, Dusty’s looks she would have served in the finale, and more in the video below.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
