How Krystal Versace made Drag Race history


Another RuPaul’s Drag Race finale, another history-making queen! Drag Race UK season three crowns a winner and makes history in the process. 

Krystal Versace was crowned the official winner of the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Not only that but she is also considered the youngest winner in Drag Race franchise history.



 After her crowning victory, she said on stage, “Oh my god. This has been the most amazing experience I could’ve ever wished for in my entire life.

“And I’m just ready to rule the f**king world!”

The 19-year-old added in her confessional: “I’m a winner baby! It’s mine! This journey has been amazing, and I am so excited to take that win home for my family.”

“It’s time for the Krystal Versace dynasty to reign supreme.”


 However, another season three contestant also had a history-making impact on the show. Anubis was voted Miss Congeniality by her fellow season three competitors. 

“I’m happy I made an impact and have been a support network for my sisters that they think I deserve this title regardless of only being on the show for 3 episodes,” the newly titled Anubis wrote on Instagram.

“THAT BEING SAID, very happy to be the first EVER “pork-chop” queen to win, as well as the only Egyptian, non-binary, bisexual (AND the youngest) MC in Drag Race HERSTORY!”



  What’s in Krystal’s future?

The season three victor joins The Vivienne and Lawrence Chaney in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. Turns out you might be able to catch Krystal and other UK faves on stage sooner than you think! 

She plans to head out on an official tour with the rest of the series three cast, including fan-favorites Victoria Scone and Choriza May in 2022.

The tour will visit 29 venues across the UK between 29 August and 16 October.

Not only does Krystal take home the title of the UK's next Drag Race Superstar but she won a paid trip to Hollywood to create and star in her own series with the producers of RuPaul's Drag Race.

In an interview with Newsweek, the queen says has “no solid plan” and is taking in all her success. 

"I've never really had a solid plan and I've got this far so I'm going to take the world by storm, I'm going to take every opportunity and I'm going to keep up with the times and educate and educate myself where necessary and just fill the world with love, passion, and inspiration and keep walking the walk baby!"
