RuPaul’s Drag Race UK fans were left fuming as the winner of series two was finally revealed.
After an intense competition that saw the return of queens, including Victoria Green who was forced to pull out of the show due to coronavirus, RuPaul and the judges unveiled Lawrence Chaney as their winner.
She made history as the show’s first Scottish queen and was thrilled to be going home with the crown.
‘This is insane, it’s incredible. Scotland babes, I brought the crown home,’ Lawrence cried as the result was revealed, while RuPaul praised her ‘charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent’ for ‘charming the world’.
Viewers watching at home, however, were in uproar over the result, with many voicing that they felt Bimini Bon Boulash was ‘robbed’.
Taking to Twitter in their droves, fans shared their shock, with one commenting: ‘WHAT?! I’d have bet the house on Bimini winning!!’
Another said: ‘Hmm…good for Lawrence but BIMINI SHOULD HAVE WON.’
‘A bimini bon burglary has occurred,’ tweeted one viewer, while another agreed: ‘Bimini Bon Burgled #DragRaceUK.’
‘Hmm…good for Lawrence but BIMINI SHOULD HAVE WON,’ said one frustrated fan, as another posted: ‘Don’t get me wrong I loved Lawrence from the start but BIMINI HAS BEEN ROBBED.’
‘Livid. Bimini was robbed,’ said another.
Another fan shared: ‘btw you can be upset that bimini lost without being negative towards lawrence, because let’s be real lawrence deserved it 100% too and was such a good competitor and really did so well the entire season, so i’m happy with the outcome, congrats lawrence!’
While plenty of other viewers were quick to share how ‘proud’ they were of Lawrence for stealing the crown.
The final episode saw the remaining four queens – Bimini, Lawrence, Tayce and Ellie Diamond – take part in an all-singing, all-dancing performance of RuPaul classic A Little Bit Of Love, before sharing advice they would now give their younger selves.
‘Don’t hide yourself from everyone. Yes, it’s to prevent other people bullying you, but not everyone is out to get you. Try to take every day as it comes. Cut your hair. Genuinely, relax and have a laugh because you’re a superstar,’ Lawrence said.
Asked why she should be crowned the winner of season two, Bimini said: ‘I feel like I’ve got so much to give. I want to change the world. And I want to keep pushing to celebrate weirdness, celebrate queerness, celebrate everything that makes you different.
‘That’s what makes you unique, makes you beautiful. I want to make everyone proud. I want to make you proud. I want to make my friends proud. I want to make my mum proud.’
Lawrence, Bimini and Tayce were announced as the top three queens and were tasked with one final challenge of lip-syncing to I’m Still Standing by Elton John.
Earlier in the emotional finale, fans were left in tears as the queens opened up in candid interviews with RuPaul and Michelle Visage.
Bimini spoke of how a friend of hers died when she was 18 years old and she now wanted to make her pal proud.
She also opened up about tough times that she had endured, which led to her getting caught up in drugs and battling depression.
Bimini admitted: ‘I went through a period of being quite depressed, a few years ago I was mixed up in a lot of drugs and I feel like if I hadn’t had stopped, I probably wouldn’t have been here right now.’
Tayce, meanwhile, revealed that her dad used to be in Wham with George Michael.
In her chat, Tayce opened up about her childhood in Newport, Wales and said that her white mother was often given strange looks for having four mixed race children.
Asked about her parents and if they were still together, Tayce said: ‘They were together for a good 20 years. My dad used to be in Wham, and play the bass guitar in Wham.’
‘He’s always been one of my biggest supporters,’ Tayce gushed. ‘I was always prancing around in wigs, they fully let me go and just let me be myself, and I’ve just always been so blessed and privileged.’
