Season 15 of Rupaul's Drag Race premiered on Jan. 6 with 16 queens: Amethyst, Anetra, Aura Mayari, Irene Dubois, Jax, Loosey LaDuca, Luxx Noir London, Malaysia Babydoll Foxx, Marcia Marcia Marcia, Mistress Isabelle Brooks, Princess Poppy, Robin Fierce, Salina EsTitties, Sasha Colby, Spice, and Sugar. The Grand Finale will air Friday, April 14, 2023.
On Season 15, Ep. 5 - House of Fashion, Spice has lost her Sugar and she is sad. The 13 remaining girls use home decor elements in their first design challenge of the season. Ru divided the group into three fashion houses that would turn home decor looks inspired by the House of Kressley, House of Mathews, and House of Visage into runway looks that tell a story as a cohesive collection. Following the runway presentation, Ru awarded safety to Mistress, Aura, Spice, Anetra, Loosey, and Marcia while the remaining seven remained on stage to hear critiques. From the bottom three, Jax was given the last safe spot which left Amethyst and Salina in the bottom two. The queens performed to Janelle Monae’s “Q.U.E.E.N.” in the Lip Sync for Your Life. Ru gave the “shantay you stay” to Salina and asked Amethyst to “sashay away.”
