It’s never easy being the one who gets sent home on RuPaul’s Drag Race, especially if you are the first queen of the season to sashay away.
Everyone’s best squirrel friend, Michelle Visage, sat down with this week’s eliminated contestant, Morgan McMichaels, to talk about the competition and what he is taking away from his brief return on All Stars.
During the conversation Michelle talks about seeing Morgan perform in L.A. when she first moved to California—even though she never judged the queen because Morgan’s season was before Michelle joined the Drag Race judges table.
“It’s a rite of passage to be judged by Michelle Visage,” Morgan tells her in the exit interview. “It really kind of is though. It really rounds everything out.”
Morgan’s plan to send the strongest competition home backfired when BenDeLaCreme picked her to sashay away, but Michelle sees nothing but good things ahead for the Season 2 queen.
“I am so proud of you. Your journey, your trajectory and how much you’ve grown,” gushes Michelle. “Keep doing it, because you’re unbelievable.”
