In season six, after a tense competition between the top three competitors: Bianca Del Rio, Adore Delano and Courtney Act, a winner was announced.
Bianca Del Rio, Roy Haylock’s drag queen persona, won the cosmetics, $100,000 cash prize and title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”
The show aired Monday, May 19, on Logo TV. Bianca Del Rio had long been a crowd favorite for fans of the show, and the win came as a surprise to few.
“It’s an incredibly rewarding experience to have this honor and I’m proof that anything is possible,” Rio said in a statement, according to Huffington Post. “I extend my love and gratitude to the talented World of Wonder family, Logo TV, the amazing fans, and especially RuPaul.”
Bianca Del Rio beat 13 other contestants to the crown and won three different challenges, never once making it into the bottom two.
May her reign be long and prosperous.
