Editor’s note: this post contains MAJOR spoilers for the grand finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8.
Jimbo and Kandy Muse got together to record an official video reacting to the grand finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 – and their reactions are priceless!
Given that multiple endings are filmed for every Drag Race season, the finalists are never aware of which queen actually snatched the crown until the grand finale officially airs. This time, the top two of All Stars 8 sat down to watch the finale and give their live reactions to one of them being crowned the winner.
As RuPaul uttered her last words prior to announcing the winner of All Stars 8, Jimbo was seen visibly shaking in her boots, whereas Muse held her costar’s hand. “Ladies, based on your lip sync and your performances all season long, I’ve made my decision,” RuPaul said. “The winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 is… Jimbo!”
Jimbo screamed and shouted after hearing that she won All Stars 8, took home a cash prize of $200,000, and was inducted into the Drag Race Hall of Fame. Muse congratulated her fellow costar and praised how much she “killed it” throughout this season. They both also told each other “I love you” and shared a friendly kiss.
Jimbo won a whopping four maxi challenges on All Stars 8, maintaining her status as the frontrunner all season long. Altogether, the Canadian queen won the “RDR Live!” challenge, the “Screen Queens” challenge, the Snatch Game, and even the roast challenge. Moreover, her hilarious impersonations of Shirley Temple and Joan Rivers were among the highlights of the season.
Though she wasn’t necessarily a lip sync assassin, Jimbo eventually learned how to deliver a good performance on the stage in order to be competitive with the other contestants. In the end, Mama Ru decided that the drag clown of Canada’s Drag Race season one deserved a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. As it stands, Jimbo is the first-ever queen from an international series to win an American season of All Stars.
A big, huge condragulations to Jimbo!
