While fans of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” are ecstatic that Trixie Mattel was named the winner of Season 3, many are outraged that Shangela failed to make the top two. (Read our season finale recap.) In a controversial move, the six eliminated queens returned with the power of eliminating two contestants from the final four. They chose to cut Shangela and BeBe Zahara Benet, leaving Trixie and Kennedy Davenport as the two finalists. Do YOU think Shangela was “robbed,” as many fans are saying? Vote now in our poll below.
As the winner of “All Stars” Season 3, Trixie received a scepter and crown, a one-year supply of cosmetics, a coveted spot in the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Hall of Fame, and a $100,000 cash prize. Trixie excelled at the final lip sync challenge of Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball” against Kennedy, so host RuPaul Charles had no choice but to name her as the third champion after Alaska and Chad Michaels.
