Kim Chi, one of the show's first breakout Asian-American contestants, constructed some of the most sophisticated looks to grace RuPaul's stage.

Season eight was an exceptional one in terms of runway presence.

KIM CHI IS A DISH BEST SERVED COLD... I have to admit, I'm living.

This was the first time in Drag Race history that I would be happy if any of the final three queens took home the crown.

Mar 26, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Drag Race is known for over-the-top writing, and the script for this episode is especially cartoonish thanks to the "B*tch Perfect" concept.

All three finalists... were blessed with more than enough charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to deserve the crown.

    It lacked some breath taking runways but I mostly watch the show for the challenges & the drama, and trust me... This one is filled with them.
