The coronation of America's Next Drag Superstar is supposed to take place tonight, but like everything else that's happened during season 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race, anything can happen. Ahead of the 9p/8p airing tonight on Logo, The Daily Beast is giving us a sneak peek at the taping of the reunion special.
Follow the jump for the behind-the-queens information on tonight's reunion special if you dare!
For starters, everyone's been talking about the dastard efforts Ru has employed to keep this season's winner sealed behind lip-syncing lips until the very last minute (the winner's segment will be uploaded directly to satellite as it's broadcast live on Logo).
The Daily Beast reports:
Once again, RuPaul had pulled one over on graceful Chad Michaels, spooky Sharon Needles, and spunky Phi Phi O’Hara, giving them the hardest challenge of all. Each was filmed fake-winning, and America’s next top drag queen will—finally!—be revealed when the show airs tonight.
In a sickening red gown, gold slingbacks, and matching gold curls, RuPaul took time out to explain the process to the audience. “We are going to film the ending three times so we can protect the integrity, because I know how it is with you lying bitches.”
“Humans love to have a piece of something that they can run and tell somebody,” RuPaul told The Daily Beast. “The human ego wants attention. It needs to have something over on other people. We didn’t want to tempt anybody.”
That's right—the three finalists themselves will have to right wait along with viewers at home to find out who wins the RPDR tiara.
But after word of Raja's domination last year was spread along the gayvine halfway into the season, the extra efforts appear necessary.
Still, given all the tricks and tucks and turns, our lovable three finalists aren't even sure they'll find out who wins during tonight's reunion special, according to the Beast.
Phi Phi: “I’m waiting for Ru to come out and say we have to do another challenge before she crowns a winner.”
Sharon Needles: “Season four has been nothing but twists and turns and complete hysteria and madman angst. There’s a part of me that thinks Ru is just going to give the crown to Willam.”
Chad Michaels: “I’m still a little bit in shock. We’ve waited this long; what’s another couple of days? Unless, it’s longer than that. Oh dear.”
If a winner is crowned, Instincters, who should it be?
