RuPaul’s Drag Race is about to Read U Wrote U… a bigger check!
VH1 has announced that the cash prize for the winner of Drag Race Season 14 has been upped to $150,000, the highest amount in the show’s herstory. The prize has been $100,000 since Season 4, and is just a little more than the $20,000 BeBe Zahara Benet walked away with when she won the first season of Drag Race.
Not only will America’s next drag superstar be swimming in some serious queen coin, but the runner-up will walk away with $50,000 — thanks to Cash app.
In addition to the prize money announcement, the final episodes of Season 14 were RuVealed, with “Catwalk” airing this Friday, April 8, where the remaining queens must battle it out in a supermodel-centric music video, followed by a reunion special on April 15, and the grand finale in Las Vegas on Friday, April 22. Sin City better be ready!
There are currently five queens still in the competition: Angeria Paris VanMicheals, Bosco, Daya Betty, Lady Camden, and Willow Pill. Which one will hit the $150,000 jackpot?
Now with an even bigger haul for America’s next drag superstar, maybe the Drag Race U.K. winners will get a cash prize someday too.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 airs Fridays at 8/7c on VH1.
