Yas guuurl! Condragulations to Bianca Del Rio, aka Roy Haylock, who took the crown as America’s Next Drag Superstar in the season 6 finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The finale aired last night (May 19) on LogoTV and was recorded at Los Angeles’ Ace Hotel. The 90-minute episode was watched in gay bars nationwide with thousands waiting to see who would be Ru’s next queen.

Bianca Del Rio had been an audience favorite for a majority of the season. Sadly, Adore Delano and Courtney Act, seemed to not even stand a chance.

RuPaul said in a statement:

“Bianca is my kind of entertainer. She is totally fearless, bust-a-gut hilarious, and yet she’s still managed to touch the hearts of Drag Race fans around the world.”

At the end of the finale, Bianca received the $100,000 prize and a personalized congratulations from Judge Judy Sheindlin, whom she had assumed earlier in the season for one of Ru’s challenges.

Bianca Del Rio’s response was:

“I feel like I am the luckiest entertainer in the world right now. It’s an incredibly rewarding experience to have this honor, and I’m proof that anything is possible. I extend my love and gratitude to the talented World of Wonder family, Logo TV, the amazing fans, and especially RuPaul. Ru, please remember to tell the IRS that my name is Pablo Sanchez.
