RuPaul picked the top 4 of season 11 alread

Out of the 15 drag queens who competed on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11, only four contestants made it to the finale. While each queen has a maxi-challenge win, all of them have been in the “Bottom Two” at least once.

The queen of the north, Brooke Lynn Hytes, caught our attention with her intimate moments with Vanessa “Vanjie” Matteo. Her ballet skills and iconic fashion moments put Brooke Lynn Hytes as a front-runner for the Season 11 win.

Akeria C. Davenport is so much more than a pageant queen. Two wins, two “Bottom Two” moments, and a glowing personality make Akeria C. Davenport a fierce top 4 queen.

Attitude check! Loud personality and “big girl” advocate, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, is also a contender for “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” If she doesn’t win the crown, however, she’s excited to host her own cooking show.

She’s Yvie Oddly and oddly enough, she made it to the top 4. This contestant stole fans’ heart with her flexible limbs, menacing laugh, and pink jellyfish look. With a maxi-challenge win and a sickening “Queens Everywhere” verse under her belt, Yvie has a good shot at snatching the crown.

Who decides the winner of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’

For the All-Stars season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, however, RuPaul allowed the queens to eliminate each other throughout the season. Since the shocking elimination of Shangela during All-Stars season 3 and the double win between Monét X Change and Trinity The Tuck during All Stars season 4, it is unclear if RuPaul will keep this format.

RuPaul chooses the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race out of the top four contestants. Although fans voice their opinions on Twitter, the decision is RuPaul’s alone to make. Even though the finale is filmed beforehand, the contestants don’t know the winner until the episode premieres on VH1.

Who are the front runners for winning the crown?

As of May 22, 2019, Yvie Oddly’s post on the RuPaul’s Drag Race Twitter page has the most likes. Silky Nutmeg Ganache’s picture has the least amount of likes.

“Yvie Oddly winning would [be] so inspirational for everyone with invisible disabilities, it would show you don’t need expensive fabrics, gowns, and wigs to get somewhere,” said one Twitter user.

“Nobody deserves to win Season 11 more than Brooke Lynn Hytes I SAID WHAT I SAID #TeamBrookeLynn,” said another Twitter user.
