Episode 3: Fairytale

The queens are challenged, before the weekly live performances, to act in "Rot-Dragchen und der böse Wolf" ("Little Red Dragging Hood and the Evil Wolf"), a parody of "Little Red Riding Hood". The queens who got the 4 highest scores the week prior don't have to partake in the challenge, and instead serve as a "jury" to the other queens. Hayden Kryze is declared as the worst in the challenge, and is eliminated before the weekly live performances, while the other queens are safe. At the weekly live performances, Catherrine Leclery receives the highest total score and is awarded the title of Queen of the Week, while Candy Crash receives the lowest score and is eliminated.

The results reflect only the challenge outcome, not the overall placements of the episode.
