Del Rio beat out both Courtney Act and Adore Delano for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar and the $100,000 winnings. Though it was close between the final three, Del Rio had emerged as the one to beat – never having found herself in the bottom two and winning three separate challenges throughout the season.
“I feel like I am the luckiest entertainer in the world right now… it's an incredibly rewarding experience to have this honor and I'm proof that anything is possible,” Del Rio said in a statement following her win. “I extend my love and gratitude to the talented World of Wonder family, Logo TV, the amazing fans, and especially RuPaul. Ru, please remember to tell the IRS that my name is Pablo Sanchez.”
RuPaul gave praise right back to Del Rio, whom she called “my kind of entertainer” in a statement. “Bianca is my kind of entertainer,” RuPaul said, adding, “She is totally fearless, bust-a-gut hilarious, and yet she’s still managed to touch the hearts of Drag Race fans around the world.”
Of the 13 drag queens competing on Season 6, it was contestant BenDeLaCreme who has voted the title of “Miss Congeniality” via online fans of the show. In the past, the award has gone to Ivy Winters and Latrice Royale.
