In Episode 1, Kyne won the mini-challenge, becoming the first-ever person on the show to do so. On the runway, her look was praised by the judges, but she displayed a bad attitude and was shown to be rude and arrogant towards the judges and other contestants, which the judges weren't too pleased by, making her the villain of the season. Kyne placed in the bottom three, however, due to winning the mini-challenge, she was declared safe from elimination, but was warned about her behavior by Brooke-Lynn and was told to be professional.

In Episode 2, Kyne was chosen to be on Team Muffragettes for the "Her-atige" Moments challenge. On the runway, she was criticized for fading into the background and her runway was criticized for not elevating her first time in drag and having her normal colored back (while the rest of her was purple) visible, even though Kyne said she was proud of her look. She placed in the bottom two, lip syncing against Tynomi Banks, and sashayed away in 11th place.
