With season 4 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” just finished and season 11 of the main show starting on Feb. 28, it is the perfect time to take a look back at the first 10 winners of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” (as well as the first three All Star champs) and find out what these lucky 13 dames have been up to since being crowned America’s favorite drag queens. In the photo gallery above, catch up with each of these fierce fillies.
The most recent winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is Aquaria, who claimed the title on June 28, 2018. Her victory over Eureka and Kameron Michaels was widely expected as she had won the most challenges throughout the season. Since then, she has been working as a model and is the entertainment editor for the magazine Dazed.
The first winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” was BeBe Zahara Benet who edged out runner-up Nina Flowers back on March 23, 2009. Since she sashayed off with the title, BeBe has been one busy bee. She released eight singles and one EP, “Kisses & Feathers.” In 2018, she made it to the final four on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3.”
Trixie Mattel won that special edition of the franchise, pulling off an upset over frontrunner Kennedy Davenport on March 15, 2018. That day was a banner one for Trixie as it was also when she dropped her second album, “One Stone.” She has been promoting this platter around the country.

Throughout all 13 seasons of the two shows, RuPaul Charles has presided over the proceedings. For his efforts, he has won three Emmys as Best Reality Host and will defend that title this fall.
