Where the hell is Lizzo's phone? Someone needs to report Merle Ginsberg as a vanished individual to the Lady Bunny Memorial Detective Agency, after budding superstar Kornbread Jeté placed the ex-panelist's face on a milk carton as a missing person in the RuPaul's Drag Race season 14 premiere.

That was just one of several fabulous moments from Friday's debut, all of which culminated in the most enjoyable premiere Drag Race has hosted in years — one that even included a rare, full lip-sync performance from Mama Ru, queens rocking out on guitars, bathing in spaghetti, harkening back to Drag Race contests of years' past with a fashion photoshoot mini-challenge, and calling RuPaul to inquire about her car's extended warranty on a cute little hamburger phone.

See all the best moments from the RuPaul's Drag Race season 14 premiere below, and tune in to the next new episode — the second part of the show's two-handed launch — Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on VH1. Immediately following new installments, EW will host the new Quick Drag post-show spoiler chat featuring queens from the cast, every Friday at 10:05 p.m. ET/7:05 p.m. PT on @EW's Twitter Spaces.
