RuPaul's Drag Race— Hello Kitty, Goodbye Katya

This week on Rupaul's Drag Race, the girls were tasked with one of their most difficult challenges to date having to create a couture look using ALL Hello Kitty memorabilia.

Right off the bat everyone is losing their minds because no one can sew except Violet. Again, who competes in a drag competition without a basic fucking understanding of how to use a needle and thread?!

Violet is stoked because this challenge plays directly to her strengths.

"We have to create a couture look entirely out of Hello Kitty materials," she explains. "This is what I do, I'm all about having concepts and having them executed flawlessly. I'm so excited to do this fucking challenge."

Clearly not everyone shares Violet's excitement.

"All I want to do is crawl underneath this work station and fucking die," Ginger says.

To make matters worse for everyone, Ru announces that they have to create a second look of a character that Hello Kitty would call her bff...complete with massive Hello Kitty head.

"I'm not even finished with my first outfit, and now I have to create an entirely new second and outfit and character to go with it," Katya complains. "Fucking fuck!"

Ginger feels defeated too, as she's probably the queen with the least amount of knowledge of garment making and she knows she's in trouble.

"I just want to throw my hands up in the air and say 'It’s been real yall. Peace, I’ll see you at the reunion.'"

Eventually they all complete their looks, good or bad, and they make their way down the runway to be judged. Violet and Pearl are a big hit, which is no surprise to anyone. Ginger's look is so incredibly Ginger (complete with Hello Kitty fur coat) that she skates by simply because her look was hilarious.

But Michelle Visage hated Katya and Kennedy's looks, and lately Michelle has been heavily influencing Ru's decision as to who lip syncs for their lives.

Katya and Kennedy perform Katy Perry's "Roar" and it's a slaughter right from the beginning. Poor Katya never had a fucking chance! From the GET Kennedy was front flipping, back flipping, death dropping and just wiping the floor with stuffed Hello Kittys. It was actually kind of sad because literally everyone loves Katya. But in the end Ru had no choice but to send her home. Ouch. This one hurt.

Don't worry your pretty little head, Katya. You know your ass will be this year's Miss Congeniality! Just wait til the reunion girl, and you'll be walking away with some cash.
