Do you think that Shangela was robbed in the season finale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Season 3? Well, you’re in good company, as a whopping 96% of fans also think that Shangela should have at least made it to the final two. Based on the results of our recent poll, nearly everyone who voted said that she was robbed. Conversely, only a tepid 4% of poll respondents thought that Shangela was eliminated by the jury fair and square.
Thanks to a new jury twist, the six eliminated queens had to choose which of the top four they wanted to face off in front of host RuPaul Charles. In a shocking move, they decided to save Trixie Mattel and Kennedy Davenport, thereby sending home BeBe Zahara Benet and Shangela. In a bonus clip that was posted on Twitter, we see that Shangela only managed one second-place showing from the jury, giving her the lowest vote total.
As the winner of “All Stars” Season 3, Trixie received $100,000 in cash and a coveted spot in the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Hall of Fame, among other prizes. (See the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winners list.) Fans seem overwhelming happy that Trixie won the season, but at the same time they still feel that Shangela shouldn’t have been eliminated prior to making it to the final two.
Here are just a few comments from outraged fans that believe Shangela was robbed in the “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Season 3 finale:
Sheila P Overton: “She was brilliant all the way through i love this show but disappointed.”
Kirk: “I think that having the Queens vote every week is one thing, but to have them do a final vote, I don’t think is fair. I think that some of those bitter Queens screwed Shangela’s chance to be at least top 2.”
Nadia Bea Ness: “Shangela was robbed, plain and simple. The Bitter Brigade picked Kennedy as the winner and Thorgy was the only one who picked Shangie.”
Ellen Michaels: “Shangela was a strong contender, no one can contest that. However, if you are going to say that she was “robbed” of the crown, that really isn’t the case.”
Dawne: “I LOVE THIS SHOW. That being said Shangela should have been in the top 2. She killed it all season even the judges have said that.”
