MTV's RuPaul's Drag Race season 15 recently returned with a brand new episode on Friday, March 3, at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT. Although every contestant gave it their best, sadly not all of them could make it through to the next round. The drag queen with the least impressive performance was sent home, and this week, it was Malaysia.

This week on RuPaul's Drag Race season 15, the drag queens entered the werkroom ready to face another challenge, hoping it would get them closer to grand finale. They had to impress Mama Ru and the other judges on the show. This week's episode was titled 50/50s Most Gagworthy Stars.

All the drag queens gave their best, but the two who least impressed Mama Ru and the judges were Salina and Malaysia. The two drag queens had to battle it out in the ultimate Lip Sync Challenge. In the end, Salina emerged victorious and moved on to the next round, while Malaysia had to sashay away.

Fans who witnessed Malaysia get eliminated took to social media to share their opinions. Many were upset that they had to say goodbye to their favourite contestant.

Taking to Twitter, many fans claimed that Malaysia was "robbed," and that she didn't deserve to be in the bottom. Some fans also added that the show was rigged, implying that the producers had planned to send the drag queen home already.


Here's a brief recap on what happened this week on RuPaul's Drag Race, season 15 episode 10

For this week's maxi challenge, the contestants had to get "up close and personal" and recreate past news challenges that were showcased on the reality Tv series. Malaysia, during her performance, gave off a defeated vibe. She had to interview Frankie Grande, but it looked like she would rather be doing anything else but that.

For the runway challenge, the series paid tribute to Beyoncé. Malaysia's look was impressive, but the judges felt it fell short of being a perfect look that would save her in the competition.

Finding herself in the bottom alongside Salina, the two had to lip sync to Beyoncé's Single Ladies. After watching them both perform, Mama Ru revealed that the contestant going home was Malaysia.


RuPaul's Drag Race season 15 airs every Friday at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT on MTV. Readers can check their local listings for more information.
