For the hometown look, she chose a huge circular pop up with a theme park on it, representing Orlando, Florida. Her jumpsuit was designed to blend in with the pop-up.

For the Gaga look, she chose Gaga's American Horror Story: Hotel Countess Elizabeth look. She received praise from all judges for her look.
Episode Two: "She Done Already Done Brought It On"- The girls were asked to split into teams and perform a Bring It On inspired cheer battle. Trinity performed well and received positive feedback for both her performance and her runway look. She was in the top 3 but did not win.
Episode Three: "Draggily Ever After"- The queens had to create a fairytale princess and a sassy sidekick. Trinity expressed annoyance at Valentina's win and became more determined to win the challenge. Trinity also opened up about the Pulse nightclub attack with the fellow queens. At the runway, Trinity's aquatic princess and comedic starfish sidekick received praise from the judges, leading to her winning the challenge.
Episode Four: "Morning Bitches!" - Trinity was chosen for team captain as she had won the last challenge. However, as her team was disorganized, she was put into the bottom two and had to lip-sync for her life against Charlie Hides. She was told to shantay after a high-energy performance against Charlie's lack of movement.
Episode Five: "Kardashian: The Musical" - Trinity was given the role of Paris Hilton by Alexis Michelle. For this reason, she would be working with Peppermint (as Britney Spears) and Sasha Velour (as Lindsay Lohan) in their 'scene'. Trinity did well in the challenge, landing her a safe position.
Episode Six: "Snatch Game" - This week, Trinity decided to play superstar Amanda Lepore. According to many fans, she had a very accurate look. On the runway, Trinity and competitor Nina had the same runway look. The judges had decided that Trinity's look was much better than that of Nina's. In addition, Trinity made her Madonna runway outfit from scratch. In the end, Trinity was safe.
