Watch The All Stars 7 Winner React To Being Crowned
We dare you not to get emotional watching this.
On Friday, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars7made herstory by crowning its first-ever “queen of all queens” in its inaugural all-winner season. While audiences see the queen crowned on the main stage, the reality is that the winners themselves learn their fate along with us. This season’s winner shared a video of the moment they found out that they officially reign supreme, and it was so emotional.
Spoilers for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 follow.
The finale featured a series of lip-sync smackdowns that ultimately saw Jinkx Monsoon come out victorious, first over Shea Coulee to Lady Gaga’s “Judas” and then in the final round against Monet X Change to Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj’s “Swish Swish.”
Between her lip-sync performances and her overall performance on the season — which saw Jinkx win five challenges — the season five alum snatched the crown (and the $200,000 prize).
“Drag is my passion and something I’ve dedicated more than half of my life to at this point and I feel so grateful to be invited here and I just hope to share the gifts that you’ve bestowed upon me with everyone else out there and show them that we are all beautiful, no matter who we are or how we present ourselves to the world,” she said in her victory speech. “I claim this in the name of Hecate, mother of witches. Thank you!”
On Saturday, Jinkx shared a video of her watching the results, while her creative collaborator BenDeLaCreme, ever the supportive sister, was by her side supporting. The two were getting ready for a gig in Australia.
“One of my favorite parts of Drag Race; two girls having intense conversations while applying makeup. Learning the results while looking like a pile of beige,” wrote Jinkx in the caption.

When her name is announced Jinkx lets out a silent scream and the two giggle as she gives her speech.
“Queen of all Queens,” they jokingly said in unison as they celebrated over a glass of bubbly. It’s a special and raw moment that naturally left fans feeling very emotional.
