  • The queens are put in groups, and two bitter rivals are forced to work together.
  • The underdog of the season cries because she doesn't know how to do something.
    • Small sips if you're watching season 6 Untucked, or you'll end up as incoherent as Laganja.
  • The bitch of the season says something rude under the guise of "keeping it real." Two sips if she actually has a point.
  • A tense moment is punctuated by a bitchy Confession Cam.
  • If a conversation in the "after the break" clip turns out to be taken out of context.
  • Any time a queen claims to be serving some kind of realness.
    • Two sips if what she's saying definitely isn't a thing. ("Carnival pregnancy realness!")
  • A queen reveals that she can't sew.
  • A plus-sized queen wears tights on the runway.
  • A skinny queen wears dental floss on the runway.
  • Michelle tells said skinny queen not to rely on that body.
    • Two sips if Michelle's outfit is just as revealing, at least cleavage-wise.
  • Santino accentuates the negative in his critique.
    • Down the whole glass if he gives an honest compliment, no ifs, ands, or buts.
  • A guest judge falls in love with a queen.
    • Two sips if they're usually not even attracted to said's queen's gender.

    • Takes off her wig.
    • Takes off her shoes.
    • Takes off parts of her outfit.
    • Does a jumping split.
    • Does a death drop.
    • Does a backflip.
    • Does any or all of this even if it's a slow song.
  • If the winner of the lipsynch actually deserved to win and wasn't kept simply because of the drama she stirs up, finish your drink at leisure and be thankful that the show still has some integrity.
  • In the "Meet the Queens" short videos and/or whenever Tyra Sanchez is on screen, take a drink every time someone mentions Beyoncé.
  • Take a shot every time Cynthia Lee Fontaine mentions her "cucu".
  • For season 6, take a shot every time the queens go "WOOF WOOF WOOF" when the Pit Crew enters.
  • For season 10, take a shot every time one of Monet's sponges appears or is mentioned after her initial runway walk. Take two if the one bringing them up is Asia.

    • Also, take a shot every time Gigi Goode mentions her mom.
  • Take a shot every time Tina Burner wears red with orange or yellow. Two sips if Rosé wears tulle.
  • Two sips if a Queen wore a similar outfit to another contestant.

  • If a queen uses freaky tongue acrobatics to get the straw in her mouth without smudging her lipstick.
  • A queen cries while giving her tragic backstory.
  • If a queen references drama that occurred on her season.
