And the Winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 11 Is…


Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

And just like that, another chapter of Drag Race herstory has come to a close with the crowning of the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 winner.

After a season filled with 15 fierce queens, a Trump Rusical, “Snatch Game at Sea,” and #WigGate, the top four queens—A’Keria Davenport, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, and Yvie Oddly—finally made it to the final stage of the competition.

Each of the final four girls were interviewed by Ru and made their case for why they should win. After a performance by Christine and the Queens and an “In Mammorium” segment dedicated to Michelle Visage’s “tig ol’ bitties,” it was time to lip sync.

Silky and Brooke Lynn faced off during the first lip sync, with Brooke Lynn being chosen to move on to the final smackdown for the crown. Then it was Yvie against A’keria, with Yvie being chosen as the winner of that round.

In the end, there can be only one, so it was Brooke Lynn and Yvie who faced off for the final lip sync. When it was all over, Ru got down to crowning the Season 11 winner: Yvie Oddly!

Condragulations, queen! And thank you for a truly sickening season!

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
