All Stars Season 6 Finale Recap:
Ru entered the work room for the last time for All Stars and told the girls the winner needed to be a little bit country and a little bit rock n roll. For the final Maxi-challenge, the girls collaborated on Ru’s new song, “This is my Country.” They each wrote their own lyrics for the song and then got on a video call with country superstar Tanya Tucker to ask her questions.
After choreography rehearsal with Jamal, the four finalists had their own one on two chat with Ru and Michelle.
On the runway it was just family, so joining Ru was Michelle, Ross and Carson. The category was “All Star Hall of Fame Eleganza Extravaganza.”
The judges deliberated, but before Ru crowned a winner, she decided she wanted all the finalists to lip synch for the crown using the same song, “Stupid Love,” by Lady Gaga.
We caught up with All Stars Season 6 winner Kylie Sonique Love to dish on the “Drag Race” journey.
How has your life changed since you were on “Drag Race” and now All Stars?
Well, honey, I am no stranger to change in life. Ever since I was a kid I went from home to home, to my house burning down, and moving back and forth and trying to figure out who I am. My life has always been changing. Since my first time on “Drag Race” I have learned to listen to the universe and take it as it is. Life has changed in so many ways. Life is what you make of it, and I try to always make the best of it.
Where have been some of your favorite places to visit as a RuPaul alumni?
I would have to say going back home to my hometown and feeling accomplished was the best place to visit.
How exciting was it to get called back to All Stars and did you consider not coming back?
“Drag Race” is so close to my heart since it helped me discover who I am as a person and has kept me making money. I was so excited to come back and show everyone who Kylie Sonique is. I knew if I go the opportunity again, I would make the most of it.
How did you prepare differently for All Stars than you did the first time you were on the show?
It was very similar as far as getting stuff together except for there was a pandemic and everything was closed, and money was very tight since we hadn’t worked for such a long time. I reached out to my resources this time and dug stuff out of the closet I had never used.
Now that it’s over is there anything you would have done differently?
Honestly, absolutely not…I stand by everything!
What challenge or look on All Stars are you most proud of?
Honestly, I am proud of everything I presented. If I had to pick one, my baby blue jeans look with the trans flag on my arm.
In the beginning did you expect to be in the top 4, and if so who did you think would be there with you?
I had no expectations, except to make sure I was happy and that I pushed myself as much as I can. I wanted to earn the placement I would get.
If you couldn’t win, who would you want to win?
There is no such thing as I can’t win.
What are you going to do with the $100,000?
Well, honey, I will make sure those taxes are paid. But I promised my dog I would buy us a house if I won.
What’s ahead for you?
OMG, anything is possible with Kylie. Ever since I left Albany, Georgia at 17, I never looked back, except to check my reflection. I am going to do whatever my heart desires, and “Drag Race” is helping those dreams come true. I would like to do more television, music, acting and activism.
