'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 13 Grand Finale: Who is the winner? Here are all the clues that will shock you
The 'RuPaul Drag Race' season finale is an event that every fan waits for eagerly-- it's a chance to see all the queens in their elaborate looks and finery, all decked out for Drag's biggest night. Between a bit of drama and a whole lot of shenanigans, the finale has it all, interviews, performances and of course the finale lip-syncs.
However, Season 13 has proved to be an exception to the rule, as shooting during Covid-19 has not been easy. But after what was possibly the longest season yet, we have finally arrived to the Season 13 finale!
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 13: Who is Symone? Meet the 'Black goddess' who floored fans with her polaroid dress
Who won Symone and Kandy Muse's lip-sync battle? What happened as RuPaul's Drag Race's favorite queens faced off
Who is going to be America's Next Drag Superstar?
If you have been keeping up with the show and all the spoilers in between, there is a good chance you already know who the winner of Season 13 is -- the proof is in the numbers. Going over the top 4's scorecard, currently each of these queens has a win, but some have more than just one. Symone stands on top, with four wins this season. Rosé is a close second, seeing that she has bagged an impressive three wins. Up next, Gottmik has a total of two wins while Kandy Muse has clocked in one.
Reddit came in hot with some heavy spoilers for what the finale would entail -- the queens follow a 'spin the wheel' format, which decides who goes up against each other. With the queens facing off to Britney Spears songs, the battle is definitely on, seeing that all these queens are known to be quite the performers.
However, as reported in the spoilers, the queens that make it to the top two are Kandy Muse and Symone. If these rumors are true, it would make for a pretty epic round two, seeing that both the queens have faced off before -- in Episode 8, to Fifth Harmony's 'Bo$$'. Although Symone won the lip-sync, Mama Ru announced that it was a double Shantay, allowing Kandy Muse a chance to stay in the competition.
However, the finale will pick out the finale winner and as per spoiler channels on YouTube and discussions on Reddit, all information points heavily toward none other than Symone, who has consistently slayed through the season. The well-rounded queen has earned her spot in the top 4 and if there is anyone who deserves the crown, it would have to be her!
Twitter was definitely #TeamSymone all the way
"Symone gave us iconic runways all season long. #DragRace," tweeted a fan. "Symone just won with that black and white look. Nonthing more to see, she won. #DragRace," added another. "Started from the top and she's still in the top, symone really belongs in the winners hall #DragRace," said a fan. "Symone really is just that girl, crown her #DragRace," added another.
Is it a live finale?
The usual format for the season finale is that it's held live, complete with an audience made of former participants and more. It usually involves Mama Ru interviewing the entire cast and of course, the finale lip-syncs. Season 12 had a virtual finale, held entirely online, where the top four queens had to even build their own sets. This season, the finale is not a digital one, but is being hosted live, but with a twist. Seeing that having a massive audience is not a possibility, the show is following a drive-through format, made up of a limited number of people. Even the Season 13 queens themselves will be participating virtually, as opposed to being there physically. However, the top four queens will be facing off live.
