Spoilers

Facts

  • Based on many official trailers of the season, Shea Couleé, Aja, Nina Bo'nina Brown and Peppermint will not be eliminated on the first competitive episode.
  • As Ru said, episode 1 will be a non-elimination episode. 
  • Ru did a carpool with each queen before their entrance to the workroom, as seen during the Race to the Nines marathon to Season 9.

Rumours

  • Cynthia Lee Fontaine: During an audio interview of RuPaul to NPR, we can hear voices from the queens during a mini challenge, and one of them sounds like Cynthia Lee Fontaine, saying "Ay que bonita!". It is unsure if she will come back to the competition or if it is just a cameo in the episode, but it almost sure that we will see her in season 9.[6]
