After a week of waiting, we finally know the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 4.
At the end of tonight's reunion special, RuPaul crowned Sharon Needles as America's Next Drag Superstar.
After her crowning, Sharon had only one thing to say.
“Happy Halloween,” she said while taking the runway walk in her crown.
After three seasons of having the results spoiled, the winner was not announced at last week's finale. And to keep the winner a secret until tonight, the show filmed three different crownings and piped the actual results in live at the end of the reunion special.
Another first this season was the public had a bit of a say in the winner. While the final decision was RuPaul's, she asked the public to vote for their favorite finalist via Faceb
ook and Twitter. The outpouring of support of Sharon Needles was so massive, it shouldn't come as any surprise that she walked away with the crown and the $100,000 grand prize tonight.
Sharon, an entertainer out of Pittsburgh, started the contest as the underdog. She's not your typical drag queen. She prefers spook to sequins and gore to glam. The public responded surprisingly well to her schtick and has already voted her as its choice to be a part of the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season set to air sometime after this summer. There's no word on whether or not Sharon's win will keep her from taking part in All Stars.
The other big news coming out of the reunion show was why contestant Willam was eliminated. We've been teased for weeks that the queen broke some rules that forced Ru to disqualify him. So what rules did he break? Contestants were supposed to keep their filming a secret and he not only informed his boyfriend of what he was doing, he let him visit his hotel room while sequestered. Boring.
Latrice Royale was voted Miss Congeniality, which is the equivalent of fan favorite, by the public.
