Who should win RuPaul’s Drag Race season six?
The season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race airs tonight on Logo, and we’re breaking down the final three and casting our vote for who should be America’s Next Drag Superstar. No T, no shade, just our opinion.
At first, we weren’t crazy about Adore. Her look was unpolished, her youth worked against her, and her demeanor was like a drag Valley girl from the ‘80s. The pairing of Adore and Laganja Estranja was like a migraine-inducing, never-ending stream of catch phrases. It was like two ditzy girls constantly trying to make “fetch” happen.
Once Laganja was eliminated (“yes, Gawd!”) we got to see the real Adore, and we instantly became fans. Suddenly, her rawness was endearing, and we realized her voice and common sayings were not, in fact, an act—as they were with Laganja. Adore showed vulnerability, and really kicked ass in a few of the challenges, particularly the rap challenge.
By the end, we were happy to see her in the finals. Adore might still be too young to snatch the crown this year, but we’re looking forward to a very bright drag future for her. Party!
There’s no question that Courtney is pretty, has talent, and wears some of the fiercest outfits to ever grace the main stage, but let’s face it, there’s not a humble bone in her body. Even when she’s trying to be nice, all her compliments come off as backdoor brags and thinly veiled reads. I truly respect Courtney as a competitor, but I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to go see her perform. As we’ve learned in the past, you can’t just rely on “pretty” to win. Personality is such an important factor in this competition, and I still feel like Courtney has been faker than India Ferrah’s $600 breast plate. Instead of showing off her Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent, all we ended up seeing was her ginormous ego.
Bianca Del Rio
I’m just going to go ahead and say this right now, we’re #TeamBianca. She’s been called out by the judges for not showing versatility in her runway looks, but we couldn’t care less. Who need versatility when you’re already perfect? Right out of the gate, Bianca showed us that she has the sharpest wit in Drag Race HERstory. Her one-liners seem like they were written by a team of talented comedy writers, and she’s thrown some of the cleverest shade we’ve ever seen. Much like Jujubee before her, we live to see Bianca read the other queens. She describes herself as hateful, but we find her so endearing because, underneath it all, she’s a total sweetheart. Case in point: everyone teased Adore for her “hog body”, but Bianca was the only one to offer the young’n a cincher. In addition to the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar, this lovingly hateful queen is a hundred percent this season’s Miss Congeniality. Frankly, if Bianca doesn’t win we’re protesting on twitter using #baloney.
So there you have it. Bianca FTW. We’ve really enjoyed this season of Drag Race and we’re looking forward to more twists, more shade, and more lip syncing for your life in future seasons.
