Penny, Serena & Jade were in the bottom whereas Alaska, Lineysha & Roxxxy were the top.

Black Swan: Why It Gotta Be Black?

  1. Mini challenge: For the mini challenge, the girls donned afros and had a disco danceoff. Ivy did well though Roxxxy did say "Ivy has no stitch of rhythm in her body". Jinkx and Coco won.
  2. Main challenge: The girls showed off their dance moves this week in the sickening new ballet "No Rupaulogies". Ivy was snapped up pretty quickly by Jinkx (it was clear a friendship was growing) as her first choice. Ivy was cast as Lady Bunny, who she had actually worked with before. Ivy was brilliant in the dance, when she performed alongside Jinkx as genderfuck Ru. They both were in the top that week. On the runway when asked to wear their most divalicious outfit, Ivy turned it. Michelle said Ivy was "mindblowingly talented' and that her Lady Bunny was "hilarious". Santino's only critique was that her Lady Bunny was maybe too pretty! Although Ivy was in the top, Alyssa won.
