The SICKENING cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7!

I can’t believe I’m already saying this, but we are at the end of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7! Monday night we will witness the crowning of America’s Next Drag Superstar and also the reveal of season 7’s Miss Congeniality! In preparation for the grand finale, Logo aired the special “Countdown to the Crown” episode that brings us all the highlights and lowlights from the season, some unaired footage, and commentary from some of our favorite queens from past seasons such as reigning queen Bianca Del Rio, Adore Delano, Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska, Alyssa Edwards, Latrice Royale, Sharon Needles, Raja, Raven and more!

It would be kinda silly for me to recap a recap episode of RuPaul’s Drag Raceyou should have been reading my recap blogs all season long! 😉 But I’ll share some of the top moments from the episode with you anyway, because I’m such a nice guy like that.
