In the first episode "Oh. My. Gaga!", Kimora was declared safe due to it being a non-elimination episode, but fans considered her to be one of the worst of the episode.
In the second episode "She Done Already Done Brought It On", Kimora struggled with sewing and stoning her cheer-leading costume and was negatively critiqued for her performance in the challenge as she faded into the background and was also read for her runway look, which was described as having too much going on and too colorful for the white party theme. Kimora was placed in the bottom two against Jaymes Mansfield and had to lip-sync to "Love Shack" by The B-52's. Kimora was saved while Jaymes was eliminated.
In the third episode "Draggily Ever After", Kimora expressed that she didn't know how to sew but seemed confident for the upcoming challenge. Kimora mentioned that she pays designers to make her outfits. Kimora received negative critiques for both her princess and sidekick, and was put in the bottom two again, this time against Aja to "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler. Aja demolished Kimora, and Kimora was eliminated. In her post elimination interview, she mentioned that she also hated her sidekick. Kimora wasn't mad that she got eliminated, she was glad as she now has drag queen friends.
