Well boys and girls, much like a bottle of Absolut, all good things must come to end — and so too must “Talking Drag Race.” But this is not a sad day. No, it is a day of celebration, a day to commemorate the crowning of the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season six winner!
Now, if you’ve been following “Talking Drag Race” all season (hi mom!), tonight’s result should not come as a surprise. That’s right, the AMAZING Bianca Del Rio took home the crown! (More images and such here.)
It was a magical night in Las Vegas that featured not only the crowning but also an impromptu wedding (between Joslyn Fox and her boyfriend, presided over by RuPaul herself), a tearful reunion of sorts between estranged friends Adore Delano and Laganja Estranja, a heartwarming surprise for Darienne Lake as her parents appeared via video to express their support — and, of course, lots of shade being tossed around (including some aimed at Gia Gunn‘s perpetually wonky eyelash).
But ultimately, season six will be remembered as the season of Bianca. She owned the screen from the first moment she entered the work room — and never looked back. There were some awesome performances this year by Ben Delacreme, Trinity K. Bonet, Darienne, Adore and Courtney Act, all fabulously talented queens in their own right. But one by one they fell by the wayside, victims of Hurricane Bianca. Ultimately, I think the most deserving queen won (unlike some other seasons *cough* tyrasanchez *cough*).
So this brings me to the end of my run here at Blabberazzi and I would just like to take a moment to thank the management team here for giving me the opportunity to write this column. I would also like to thank everyone that’s been reading “Talking Drag Race” week after week, in spite of its incredibly uncreative title and possible seizure-inducing animated GIFs. If you’ve enjoyed my work, please check out my new website, www.NotSafe4Werk.com, where you will see many of the same jokes recycled over and over again.
Until we meet again, remember to have your pets neutered and spayed.
