Spoiler Alert! Someone get me a mother tucking glass of vodka. I need a drink for the stress this news has caused me. Yes, Kitty Girls, BeDeLaCreme has decided to leave the competition. In what could be considered one of the most gag-worthy twists in All Star herstory, Rupaul and the other contestants were left speechless at Dela’s dramatic decision.
It came down to BeBe Zahara Benet and Dela in the top two of the week. In the lip-sync Dela prevailed as the winner yet again so the decision to bring back one of the eliminated queens but also give one of her competitors the chop, was solely in her hands. #nopressure
Firstly, the queen she chose to bring back was Morgan McMichaels. Her reason being that she thought she got very few chances to demonstrate what she could do before getting sent home very early in the competition. I do believe that it was the honourable thing to do however, I’ll make it no secret that I think some other queens would have been much more deserving of that second chance than Morgan. I personally would have liked to see Aja back but I guess now it is entirely plutonic. Then came the ultimate decision that had all of us hyperventilating. Who was she going to send home?
In the words of Aja: “WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED?!”
As she pulled out a lipstick with her own name added in pen she pretty much confused and shocked everybody in the room. She, after all, was a strong favourite to win the show. Here are some of the priceless reactions around the studio…
So there you have it. As it is written, so it will be done. Dela’s reasoning for her choice was as follows:
“I hope you don’t see this as a sign of disrespect because I see myself as such a drag race success story. I had such a hard time on my season even though I did well, I wanted this opportunity to come back to fight hard and to show myself what I can do. I have accomplished that. I feel like a winner. I love these girls and I think they all deserve a shot to win. I am incredibly grateful, I hope that you all can see that. I feel so good, like Im going home winning.”
She then put up the following post on instagram:
And we love you too Dela! For now, sashay away ❤
