RuPaul's Drag Race wrapped up its seventh season at Los Angeles's legendary Orpheum Theater on June 1, where finalists Ginger Minj, Pearl, and Violet Chachki competed for the title of America's Next Drag Superstar. Read the recap to find out which draq star ruled the Queendom!
Who Wins America's Next Drag Superstar?
You better work! RuPaul was initially unsure who to crown as America's Next Drag Superstar, so naturally he made his finalists lip sync for their lives during the show's finale. After that amazingness, Ru spent about an hour ruminating on who should win while he interviewed old contestants, walked us through highlights of the season, and chatted to icons of the drag world. It was beyond!
Ultimately, Ru was impressed by all three ladies (to quote: "you just flooded my basement!"), but ultimately Violet took home the crown –– literally! More importantly, she won a $100,000 cash prize, a one-year supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics, and a bejeweled crown and scepter. Looks like Ginger and Pearl are sashaying away to the runner-up zone.
Also, shout-out to Miley Cyrus, who was most definitely sitting in the audience watching the winner take the crown!
Katya Wins Miss Congeniality
Last year's Miss Congeniality, BenDeLaCreme, showed up to pass the torch to this year's winner — Katya Zamolodchikova! Ru wished Katya "con-drag-ulations," and Katya thanked her fans in Russian. Tearjerker moment!
