Jinkx Monsoon & Ivy Winters

PHOTOS: Jinkx Monsoon was crowned winner of season five of RuPaul’s Drag Race in front of a crowd of thousands of fans at New York City’s XL Nightclub on Monday, May 6.  Competition was fierce this season, with Roxxxy Andrews and Alaska coming neck and neck with Monsoon.  Celebrity Drag Race judge Michelle Visage and local favorite Bianca del Rio were the rapid fire (and wickedly funny) hostesses for the evening, introducing all of the contestants from season five: Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska, Roxxxy Andrews, Detox, Coco Montrese, Alyssa Edwards, Ivy Winters, Jade Jolie, Lineysha Sparx, Honey Mahogany, Vivienne Pinay, Monica Beverly Hillz, Serena ChaCha, and Penny Tration.  The crowd erupted when hometown gal, Ivy Winters nabbed the Miss Congeniality honor, and cheered Jinkx to the stage when Miss Sharon Needles crowned her America’s Next Drag Superstar.

      Hey guys, the 2nd to the last picture is Bianca Del Rio and Skyla Versai.

      And, yeah, please put ****spoiler alert**** next time since most of us don’t watch it the night it originally airs.
