‘Drag Race’ Season 15 Finale Winner: Sasha Colby & Anetra Ought to Tie
With the crowning of America’s Subsequent Drag Celebrity mere weeks away, I’m hoping for a herstoric shock.
As confirmed on Friday, the ultimate 4 queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 are Sasha Colby, Anetra, Mistress Isabelle Brooks and Luxx Noir London. For probably the most half, that’s additionally my private rating for the season, save for one essential downside — for the lifetime of me, I can’t select between Sasha and Anetra!
Statistically talking, they’re completely matched. Each have three maxi problem wins beneath their belts, and whereas Anetra did land within the backside as soon as, she additionally gained two mini challenges to Sasha’s zero, so all of it evens out.
However it’s by no means been concerning the numbers with these two. Each queens have endeared themselves to viewers with their infectious personalities, sickening runway appears to be like, inspiring backstories and seemingly infinite arsenal of methods and treats.
In some ways, Sasha is already a legend in her personal proper. When she was first introduced as a contestant, the fandom was shook, as was the earth itself, in line with a number of seismologists I simply made up. Her fame as a pageant champion, runway stunner, drag mom and LGBTQ+ rights activist precedes her, and it’s been a thrill watching her step right into a nationwide highlight.
Anetra is comparatively new to the sport, however from the second she first walked that f-ing duck on the season premiere, she has confirmed again and again that charisma, uniqueness, nerve and expertise are in her rattling bones. She’s sensible, she’s humorous and she or he actually appears to get it. Her pure talents greater than make up for a scarcity of expertise, and recognizing the way forward for drag will be simply as vital as upholding its traditions.
For the file, I’m additionally #TeamMistress and #TeamLuxx. We’ve been blessed with a extremely sturdy High 4 this season, and I’d be superb with any considered one of them pulling off the win. I’m simply being reasonable. All of it comes right down to lip syncs, so there’s no means this finale gained’t finish with Sasha and Anetra completely tearing up the stage collectively for the second time this season. Sasha was named the winner of that first face-off, however we mustn’t overlook that Anetra slayed the “voguing” mini problem. Plus, that battle in opposition to Marcia Marcia Marcia? I’ve two phrases for you: “Free Willy!”
Possibly I’m simply submitting to my very own indecisiveness right here, however I can’t think about both Sasha or Anetra being topped with out questioning if the opposite queen ought to have gotten it.
It’s not like a tie can be fully unprecedented. All of us bear in mind when RuPaul gagged the world (the universe?) by naming Monet X Change and Trinity the Tuck co-winners of All Stars 4 again in 2019. This could merely be the primary tie on Drag Race correct — and I believe it’s about time.
OK, let’s speak: Am I totally affected by drag delusion, or would you even be down with a Sasha-Anetra tie within the finale? If not, which queen are you rooting for? Drop a remark together with your winner(s) of selection beneath.
