Drag Race fans debate which are the best – and worst – episodes of all time
Which is the best RuPaul’s Drag Race episode of all time? That’s what fans have been trying to settle – once and for all.
Lee Dawson, known for his surreal RuCap YouTube edits, kicked off the discussion by asking Twitter followers which episode of Drag Race were the best and worst.
Thousands of fans and ever a few Drag Race queens joined in, sharing clips and gifs of their favourite – and most cringe moments – to have played out.
The contenders for best Drag Race episode ever.
As far as many fans are concerned, season five walks away with the crown for best season.

The legendary All Stars 2 “Revenge of the Queens” episode – particularly its “Shut Up and Drive” lip-sync between Tatianna and Alyssa Edwards – was also up there for many.

All Stars 1 is widely regarded as a flop, but the Untucked fight between Mimi Imfurst and… everyone else was a highlight for many.

“Snatch Game at Sea” was a highlight during season 11 – not least because Brooke Lynn Hytes still has us all gagged from this reveal.

Though others disagreed.
This snatch game was hot garbage but the runway was good and the lip sync course corrected my universe personally

Drag Race UK season two got a shout-out.
genuinely think the Ruruvision episode of UKS2 is up there. It had everyone coming back after the COVID break (except Veronica RIP), Joe Black coming back, UK Hun?, H&M- so much in one ep!

Drag Race UK season three has some tough critics.

The Sex and the Kitty, Girl challenge from All Stars 4 still haunts viewers.
How they took 4 of my favourite queens and absolutely butchered this challenge I will never know…

Season seven’s Rusical didn’t quite make the impression it aimed for.

Years later, the All Stars 3 finale twist haunts the Drag Race fandom.
The most cursed final two episodes in any season ever. pic.twitter.com/9NUi7lyuCQ

It isn’t a wedding without some drama, eh?
This one got removed from the US streaming services, didn’t it? He sued to have it taken down?
