The 2nd season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars has been nothing short of spectacular, which we knew would be the case the instance the first episode aired. The amount of drama, strategy, backstabbing and so much more has made this one of the most intense seasons the show has ever had, and with only three more episodes until the finale, so many of us are wondering who will take the crown and become the 2nd All Star winner of this Emmy Award winning program.
Three queens have sashayed away (Ginger Minj, CoCo Montrese, Phi Phi O’Hara), and one has quit (Adore Delano), leaving six amazing competitors who are hungry as hell to win this crown. Who do we think has the best shot to win? We take a look at who we think will be eliminated in order, starting with the next to go, and who we think will win it all hunties.
6th- Roxxxy Andrews
I do have to say that if there was ever a queen to really redeem themselves this season, it is Roxxxy. She has done a complete 180 from the ultra-competitive girl that she became in season 5, and for the most part has steered clear of the drama and has been a fairly likable character this season. The problem is that she has legit been in the bottom every week minus the first, where she had a strong showing in the talent show episode. It is getting a bit redundant watching her be saved, and I do think that her time has unfortunately run out and she will be gone next episode. Not to discredit her change, though.
5th Place- Detox
I love Detox so much, and even though she has won two challenges this season, it just seems as if she isn’t really getting much of an edit and has faded into the background of the competition. This is sort of what happened in her season as she was a true front runner early on and then somehow lost the magic and lip synced 3 times before Jinkx Monsoon eliminated her. I don’t foresee her going further than this, or 4th, as she might switch places with…
4th Place- Katya
The beloved Katya. I love Katya, we all do, but she has been in the bottom twice now and has only won once. Granted, I am not happy with her being in the bottom for the Princess Diana episode, as there was little to work with there, but she is falling on her own sword again with the insecurity aspect that plagued her in S7. Unless she changes things up over the next couple of weeks and really brings it home, I don’t see her making it past either 4th or 5th.
3rd Place- Tatianna
Tatianna has become another underdog this season, similar to how she was in S2. Yes, she deserved to get eliminated in the 2nd episode for her weak showing as Ariana Grande, but she has a fire in her that you can definitely see in both of the lip sync’s that she has done, not to mention the comedy challenge in the last episode. I don’t foresee her winning this whole thing, but she really has redeemed herself as being more than “just face value” as Raven used to say about her in her season. She has grown, focused, funny, determined and gorgeous.
2. Alyssa Edwards
My jaw dropped when Alyssa was eliminated in the fourth episode, as I was sure that Alaska would eliminate Roxxxy based on her poor performance for a 2nd time. That being said, Alyssa has had some amazing redemption this season as she was primarily “quotable” in her own season, yet didn’t really shine in much outside of the dancing challenge that she won. This time around, she has that same humor, but has upgraded herself completely as a whole character that is likable, relatable, and above all… someone to root for. She has a great chance to win this crown, but there is someone else that is going to make it incredibly hard for her (and the others).
1. Alaska 5000
This season has been tailor made for Alaska to win in so many ways. She has excelled in every single challenge, winning 2 of them, and has only ever been in the safe category once. Whether it was her performance as Mae West, parody of Bette Davis in “What Had Happened To Baby JJ?”, and so much more, this really is her competition to lose. My fear is that she might fall in the bottom, which if the queens are being strategic, should send her home as she is the front runner to win it all. But, if she doesn’t, expect Ru to announce her name at the finale.
