It’s time to wrap up Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race with a finale extravaganza. Who was crowned the victor after this 2 hour episode? Will it be Jinkx? (A fan favorite, but apparently not favored by other contestants.) Alaska? (Can a couple produce 2 champions?) Roxxxy Andrews? (Not a popular fan choice, but this is Ru’s decision and hers alone.)
Why am I showing a picture of Detox when she can’t possibly win? Because that monochrome makeup is SICKENING. Can I get an amen?
If this episode is feeling too long for you, why not head on over to the iTunes store or whatever mobile device app download-thingy you use and get RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis. It’s the new super-fierce game where you help Ru against the evil drag queen Apocalypstyk. Now you can play with drag queens, as a drag queen, while watching drag queens. Remember? Pandora Boxx told us all about it. Well, it’s out now. Yippee!
If you’re pressed for time you should know that RuPaul told us this was a 2-hour extravaganza, but it’s really only 90 minutes. The last half hour was the premiere of the puppet show Felt. I can’t tell if it’s supposed to be funny or serious, and if it’s not willing to commit to a genre, I’m not willing to commit to it. Sorry bout it.
The episode itself is your basic reunion episode – each queen gets introduced in order of elimination. They get to say some shady stuff about the other girls or express surprise about how they came off on TV. It’s all filler to build up for the announcement of the season 5 winner.
And who won RuPaul’s Drag Race? If you’ve managed to avoid the social media chatter about it, congratulations. I’m about to spoil it for you. It appears that the show filmed 3 alternate endings as they did last season, and the winner didn’t find out until last night with all of us. It was Jinkx. Hooray! NewNowNext has a clip to see the contestants reaction to the winner announcement:
Well that’s it for season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race kids. Season 6 is casting now, so it won’t be long before we’re all together again.
