Are you still reeling from that shock result on the “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” season finale on Thursday? We couldn’t believe that fan favorite Shangela didn’t make the top two. But only now do we know just how much the six eliminated queens were determined to see her shut out of the final.
In a bonus clip that was posted by the show on Twitter, we see the votes cast by each member of this jury. Each of their first place picks gets two points while their second choice gets a single point. As the vote unfolds, it is neck and neck between Trixie Mattel and Kennedy Davenport. BeBe Zahara Benet is the first-place pick of just one queen while, shockingly, Shangela manages only one second-place showing.
Of the 18 points in total up for grabs, Kennedy went into the final with a leading 8 points while Trixie was a close second at 7 points. That lone first-place vote for BeBe meant she had just 2 points in total while Shangela had just 1 point to show for all of her hard work.

Do you think Trixie deserved to win? Did she do a better lip sync of the Miley Cyrus hit “Wrecking Ball” or did Davenport deserve the title? Along with the bragging rights, Trixie wins a whopping $100,000. And she joins Alaska and Chad Michaels in “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Hall of Fame.
