Episode 1: Oh. My. Gaga! - For the main challenge, the girls had to compete in a charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent pageant, serving up a hometown look and a Lady Gaga look.
For the hometown look, she chose a pop up cape with the statue of liberty and "I heart NY" symbols on it, and a swimsuit with civil right messages, representing New York City. She was critiqued for the messages on her swimsuit not being written very clearly. For the Gaga look, she chose Gaga's 2015 Golden Globes Awards outfit. She received praise from all judges.
Episode 5: Reality Stars: The Musical - Alexis won the sexy selfie mini challenge, and as a result got to choose the roles the queens had to play for the lip-sync challenge "Kardashian: The Musical". Alexis chose Kris Jenner and performed well in the challenge, landing in the top three, but ultimately did not win due to her 'basic' runway outfit. In Untucked she blamed the other queens for not telling her to change her outfit, which she received backlash for.
Episode 6: Snatch Game - Alexis chose to impersonate Liza Minnelli for the Snatch Game, a choice RuPaul was very excited about. Alexis's Madonna runway for the episode was inspired by Madonna's Dick Tracy character Breathless Mahoney. Alexis performed very well and got good critiques, both on her Liza and her Madonna runway, and she was declared the winner of the challenge.
Episode 8: RuPaul Roast - In the Reading is Fundamental mini-challenge Alexis was thrown off by the reads involving her size (mainly by Nina Bo'nina Brown and Farrah Moan). Farrah later apologized to Alexis for her read. Alexis painted herself green for the roast as it is Michelle's least favourite colour, but bombed her routine, landing her in the bottom two against Farrah. Alexis won the lipsync, and Farrah was eliminated.
