When you are on All Stars, you are among the best of the best that RuPaul’s Drag Race has to offer. So it’s always tough when a queen has to go, but that is the nature of the game on a competition reality show—even All Stars.
On previous episodes this season the queens sent home, like Thorgy Thor and Milk, were not happy to sashay away—but this week’s eliminated queen, Louisiana’s own, Chi Chi DeVayne, had a smile on her face when both BenDeLaCreme and Shangela picked her to leave.
“I felt it was the right decision. I had been in the bottom every week,” Chi Chi tells squirrel friend Michelle Visage in the latest installment of Whatcha Packin’.
Visage noticed Chi Chi’s joy about being eliminated, noting that she looked like she “was running to go home.”
In her conversation with Michelle, Chi Chi talks about her bond with fellow All Star Kennedy Davenport and what went through her head when she got the call to come back to the Drag Race workroom.
Just because Chi Chi is no longer on All Stars doesn’t mean you have seen the last of the Bayou Queen.
“I can’t wait to see you out there, smashing it,” Michelle tells her. “I’m so, so proud of you, so keep killing it.”
We feel the same, Chi Chi!
