After weeks of lipsticks and eliminations, the finale of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 is here! By the end of the hour, three more queens got the chop and one walked away with the grand prize. Who was that lucky queen?
In a surprising race to the finish, Trixie Mattel defeated Kennedy Davenport on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 8.
The Top 2 queens were voted in by a jury of their peers: The eliminated contestants! Shangela, the current reigning front-runner after Ben DeLaCreme quit, got knocked out in fourth place followed by BeBe Zahara Benet in third place.
The vote results weren't the only shocking developments during the finale. Making up the rest of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 8 included the biggest performance in Drag Race herstory, the return of the eliminated queens, and a queen who couldn't jump.
Below, we picked out nine moments from "A Jury of Their Queers" that left us just as shocked and excited as Trixie Mattel. (Just look at her expression down below!) What was your favorite moment?
RuPaul's Drag Race can be a tough competition; you have to find ways to relax and take your mind off the game. Trixie, in this instance, was crushing hard for one of the back-up dancers that Todrick Hall brought for the performance. She wanted that man and she was smiling from ear-to-ear in her confessionals about Brayden.
"I Hate Heights."
Did BeBe truly hate heights or was it more so that she couldn't jump? Regardless of whatever the former winner tried to do, she could never nail her trick into the air. Her awkwardness was fun, but it was the reactions of her competitors and Todrick Hall that made the moment hilarious. They were blown away at how bad she was at jumping.
Respect For Morgan
You can always count on Trixie to throw a little light-hearted shade at someone. When BeBe asked Trixie to reveal her elimination vote, Trixie got the perfect opportunity to make fun of BeBe's faux-pas from RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 7. Note to future queens: Just reveal your votes! No one cares who you were planning to vote.
BeBe was ready to snatch the crown and take her photo for the Drag Race Hall of Fame. We were treated to one of the best confessionals of her practicing her ideal pose. She probably had that look ready to go for weeks now.
There have been plenty of facecracks in RuPaul's Drag Race herstory. However, Trixie might have made the biggest jaw drop yet. When Todrick revealed the size of the Kitty Girl performance, Trixie couldn't control her excitement and shock for the news. She was equally ready for the challenge and also surprised.
Judge, Jury & Executioner
The jury had a lot of power on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 8. A group of six queens would have the votes to decide the Top 2, who would then lip sync for their legacy. The reveal of the jury was shocking because we haven't had a jury yet and EVERYTHING that was done before this moment would help determine who the eliminated queens might cut. Shangela was right, you needed to build your alliances strong.
