Filipino drag queen Stephanie Prince got the chop in the latest episode of “Canada’s Drag Race vs The World” after missing the mark in the much-awaited Snatch Game maxi challenge.
In the second episode aired Saturday, Stephanie’s impersonation of Cardi B fell flat for the judges and made her land in the bottom two spot anew with New Zealand’s Anita Wigl’t.
United States’ Rajah O’Hara and Canada’s Icesis Couture were the top queens and performed a lipsync to “Sk8er Boi” by Avril Lavigne. Icesis won and sent her fellow Canadian sister home.
Stephanie hoped she was able to represent Asia in a good way.
Stephanie ended her journey on the second season of “Canada’s Drag Race” finishing 10th overall.
The drag queen from Calgary, Alberta lost the lip-sync battle to Synthia Kiss after both failed to impress the judges in an acting challenge in the third episode of the series.
Despite this, Stephanie gave a remarkable showing on the runaway with her Jollibee-inspired entrance look. She was also praised during the design challenge for her high-fashion dress made of posters.
Kyne from Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario was the first Filipino drag queen to compete in “Canada’s Drag Race” placing 11th overall in its debut season.
Kimmy Couture followed Stephanie in the third season and reached the finale but failed to make it to the final lip-sync.
