Kita Mean has been crowned the very first winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under.
The New Zealand drag queen beat fellow finalists Art Simone, Scarlet Adams and Karen From Finance to the top spot and pocketed the $30,000 (£16,250) cash prize in the process.
RuPaul announced the news, with judges Michelle Visage and Rhys Nicholson by her side, declaring: ‘You’re a winner baby!’
Kita threw her arms in the air upon hearing the news, before holding her head in her hands as it sunk in.
When asked by Ru if she had anything to say, Kita exclaimed on the main stage: ‘You know what, spread those f*cking wings, you can soar too. You can do this!’
Speaking to the camera in her confessional, Kita continued: ‘I f*cking did it.

‘To anybody who feels like they are weird, they don’t belong and people do not get them, own who you are because those things that people don’t get are the things that make you special – and that’s what makes you shine.
‘So you can spread your wings, you can fly, you can do this!’
The first season of Drag Race Down Under has been nothing short of shady and dramatic.
Last week, contestant Elektra Shock said that the bitchiness of the show was sometimes so hard to take that she’d go back to her hotel room and cry after filming.
Meanwhile, Etcetera Etcetera told us she was hit with a barrage of nasty messages and death threats from trolls after she impersonated Lindy Chamberlain for Snatch Game.
It’s not yet been confirmed whether Drag Race Down Under will return for a second season.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
