Tonight we answer the question we’ve been building up to all season – who won RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8?
Now normally I would give you a full recap before posting, but since we had no advanced screener, I’m writing on the fly. Not my best look, like day drag. So tonight you’ll get the info you want. Be sure to come back to this post sometime tomorrow for the fully fleshed out recap with more pictures.
We get the original song lip synchs and final interviews with each of our finalists. Bob gets a personal message from the one & only Carol Channing. She’s so cute. Bob also gives Ru a purse that matches her dress so she can come in the room purse first.
Kim Chi doesn’t move much during her number, but it works. She also throws some major shade at the pit crew. She gets a message from Margaret Cho as the North Korean Supreme Leader.
Did I see that commercial right? Are they running the Ruvealed version of this season starting on Sunday? Really?
And finally Naomi Smalls gets her turn in the spotlight. Naomi gets a message from Lena Headey from Game of Thrones. We also get to see Naomi’s adorable mom & five of her siblings.
PSA: Go to GlobalAlly.org & be an ally. Or buy some Nasty Pig underwear. I’m sure those are equivalent actions.
Then the rest of the queens get about 30 seconds of more screen time. Acid Betty gets a message from Nancy Grace. Thorgy played violin for a couple of seconds. Chi Chi gets a message from Jennifer Holliday.
Katya is here to present this year’s Miss Congeniality to Cynthia Lee Fontaine! Yay!
And we’ve finally arrived at the moment we’ve been slogging through 90 minutes of show & commercial to see. Well, Violet’s final dress is pretty unbelievable. Like unbelievable that she can breathe.
The winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 is Bob the Drag Queen.
Surprised? Nope. Purse first bitches. And congrats to Kim Chi & Naomi Smalls for playing a good game. Here’s hoping all of the queens of season 8 take advantage of this exposure to really advance their careers.
Did you want Kim Chi or Naomi to win? Sound off below!
