Mystique was eliminated on the third episode on Season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race.
Mystique won the mini-challenge, which was to eat mysterious types of fried foods, (including chicken, rabbit, alligator and even cow-brains). Mystique was one of the first to finish their baskets full of food, which made her become a team captain for the main challenge.
The main challenge was to shoot a commercial in teams (Team Mystique and Team Morgan), for "Disco – Extra Greasy Shortening". Team Mystique got to the do the commercial for fried chicken. Mystique played a role as Granny, who cooked the fried chicken and was supposed to take charge in representing the Disco product. Mystique gave the weakest performance and apparently didn't listen and was hard to work with RuPaul and guest judge Kathy Najimy on the set.
Mystique lip-synced for her life against Raven to Wynonna Judd's "I Hear You Knocking", but lost and was sent home.
Drag Name Origin
She started out as Mystique for three years because she always loved X-Men and since she is transforming from a boy to a girl, she wanted to be a shapeshifter like Mystique. She became Mystique Summers when she did her first pageant under her drag mother Genie Summers. Summers is from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. She then realized the linkage to X-Men with Scott Summers. Madison is from one of her friends in Texas. But she has now gone back to just Mystique Summers, because it sounds better and quicker to say the name.
