WARNING: All Star’s season 8 spoilers below. Read at your own risk!
As a new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race comes to a close, a new winning queen is added to Ru”s Hall of Fame. After a grueling eleven weeks, queens Jimbo and Kandy Muse faced this week's finale as the season's top two.
Alongside the finalists were fellow competitors Monica Beverly Hillz (Season 5), Naysha Lopez (Season 8), Mrs. Kasha Davis (Season 7), Darienne Lake (Season 6), Heidi N Closet (Season 12), Jaymes Mansfield (Season 9), Lala Ri (Season 13), Kahanna Montrese (Season 11), and Alexis Michelle (Season 9).
While Lala did not end up as season 8’s winner, she was granted a prize of $60,000 thanks to her votes in the “Fame Games.”
Alas, only one queen can take home the crown, and a grand prize of $200,000. In a fierce face off for the win, to "Do Ya Wanna Funk?" by Sylvester and Patrick Cowley the two proved they have more than enough charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
Ultimately, Canadian queen Jimbo had all the other queens beat this season and took home the grand title.
"This season I fell in love with each of our All Stars all over again, but in the end, Jimbo's ginormous talents were impossible to ignore. Long may they jiggle,” said host and executive producer of the show, RuPaul. “ And I want to thank all the fans for voting and making LaLa Ri the Queen of the Fame Games. Condragulations!”
