This week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars delivered what might be the most shocking twist in the show’s herstory when BenDeLaCreme won the lip sync and took herself out of the competition.
In the latest installment of Whatcha’ Packin’, everyone’s favorite squirrel friend, Michelle Visage, sits down with Ben to talk about why she decided to give herself the chop and why she made Michelle so proud.
“You shocked the sh*t out of me,” says Michelle as she gushes about how much fun she had watching Ben slay all of the challenges. “You knocked it out of the park week after week.”
“Then came the Wite-Out,” she adds.
Michelle and BenDeLaCreme are friends even when the cameras aren’t rolling, but even between two squirrel friends she still had a hard time understanding why Ben eliminated herself from the competition when she was the frontrunner to walk away with the grand prize.
Watch DeLa talk about her shocking decision, and check out some outfits viewers didn’t get to see on the runway in the new episode of Whatcha’ Packin’ below.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.
