ONTD Original: The Weirdest Challenges On RuPaul's Drag Race


RuPaul's Drag Race has been on for 11 damn seasons, and some of the challenges have been... well... weird. These are some of the weirdest mini and maxi challenges every to be on the show. (double cut to save your browser)

The Wizard of Oz interpretive dance

The queens had to do Wizard-of-Oz-themed partner makeovers with the ladies of Little Women L.A. And then... they had to make up their own interpretive dances.

Butt-butt golf

On All Stars 2, one mini-challenge was "butt-butt" golf, where the queens were given giant, dangling penises and had to play mini-golf with them.

The Bitch Ball

On season 4, the adult men had to dress up as dogs and do a Cats-style mini-musical. It involved sing-barking.

The Sugar Babies

Season 5 queens didn't have it much better.They were the "sugar babies," which are... elves? Children? Sexy babies? Who the fuck knows...

Drag That Pancake

On season 10-- one of the worst seasons, imo-- the queens had to give drag makeovers to pancakes. Pancakes!!!!!

DILF makeovers with pregnant bellies

For this makeover challenge, the season 4 contestants had to make over dads... and then wear pregnant bellies down the runway.

Inner Saboteur

This challenge was more confusing than weird. On season 10, the queens did two runways as their best selves and their "inner saboteurs."

Again, season 10's challenges being a hot mess. The acting challenge was a spoof of HBO's Westworld, complete with robots and... Sarah Palin?

My Best Squirrelfriend's Dragmaids Wedding Trip

AS3 was a hot mess, partly because of this challenge, which combined a bunch of different movies into one spoof.

A musical... about pharmaceutical commercials?
Oh, season 10, your queen-on-queen drama was so much better than the actual challenges. The Pharma-ru-sical is a perfect example.

Princesses and sidekicks

Designing their own princess costumes was a great idea. Creating animated sidekicks was a terrible one.
