After four months of fierce competition, RuPaul finally crowned America's Next Drag Superstar last night in a pre-taped reunion special. Many people at the live screening I attended complained about how unmoved Violet Chachki looked, upon hearing the news of her win. There's a reason for that.
For the past four seasons, the producers of RuPaul's Drag Race film three separate outcomes to avoid spoilers. The queens find out who the true winner is by watching the episode, just like us!
With that in mind, the televised crowning ceremony seems less vital. No matter how good of an actor one is, it's impossible for a queen to accurately project how they will feel and act upon winning until it actually happens.
Thankfully, the kind people at Logo taped the final three queens watching the finale last night. Check out their reactions below:
