Here is an updated list of which talented queens have sashayed away so far in RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 16. 

There are so many elements of RuPaul’s Drag Race that viewers are looking forward to in Season 16.

From the fashion challenges to the iconic Snatch Game where the contestants have to impersonate celebrities, there’s so much to see.

The only entertaining moment that could lead to some true disappointment among viewers and the cast is when two queens are in the bottom and have to lip-sync for their lives. This is when the two cast members have to perform a song at the same time.

The winner gets to continue in the competition and the other has to sashay away (and give an iconic goodbye quip while they’re at it). There is a total of fourteen contestants this time around, and with the rare chance that RuPaul decides to keep both queens at the end of the lip sync, there is a chance for dozens of high-stakes performances to take place this season.

Nonetheless, someone has to go home at the end of the day and we’ve got the details on who.
