If there’s one challenge we adore on RuPaul’s Drag Race, it’s the comedy roast. And as RuPaul said himself, this week’s episode of the Secret Celebrity edition was “the best roast in Drag Race herstory”.
As a quick recap, the four-part series sees celebrities entering the workroom and undergoing transformations from Drag Race alumni. Sashaying in this week, Dustin McGilligan (Schitt’s Creek), Alex Newell (Actor/Artist) and Matt Iseman (presenter/stand-up). While the queens who were (at least in-part) responsible for helping these men feel their fantasy were Kim Chi, Nina West and Bob the Drag Queen.
They all had some brilliant put-downs, without a single clanger. Here’s our pick from the bunch, and trust us, it was hard to narrow it down to just 10!
