RuPaul Drag Race Season 14 Story
The contestants submit their video auditions to the production company of the show and RuPaul and the other judges carefully view each tape and, then, select the competitors for the season. The next step is to film a series of episodes, typically concluding with the elimination of one or two contestants or a contestant disqualification. Each episode has a maxi challenge designed to test the competitor’s skill set. Some episodes also have a mini-challenge where winners get a special advantage or a benefit in the upcoming maxi challenge. The judges discuss among themselves and, then, announce the winner of the week and the bottom two competitors.
Mini challenges are a small and quick assignment which RuPaul announces at the beginning of the game. The most famous mini-challenge is the reading challenge where participants criticize each other in a process popularly known as reading. Maxi challenges are designed to examine the skill set of each participant. They are sometimes group projects or individual projects involving singing, dancing, acting, and various other things. The most popular maxi challenge is the Snatch Game.
