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.[2]
