The fourth and final episode of ‘Secret Celebrity Drag Race’ included Hayley Kiyoko, Madison Beer, and Phoebe Robinson
Hot off the heels of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12, the next and final episode of RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race premiered. This one featured drag mentors Vanessa Mateo (season 10, season 11,) Alyssa Edwards (season 5, All-Stars 2,) and Monique Heart (season 10, All-Stars 4,) who partnered with public figures Hayley Kiyoko, Madison Beer, and Phoebe Robinson.
With the support of Miss Monique Heart, Madison Beer transformed into Coral Fixation, complete with a white floral number. Phoebe Robinson became her drag persona, Cocotini, dressed in yellow and a black and white pattern.
Hayley Kiyoko, inspired by the power and grace that is the Queen, took the drag name Queen Eleza Beth. With the support of Vanessa “Miss Vanjie” Mateo, Hayley Kiyoko pushed her inhibitions aside to let her rockstar self shine through, both in the “lipsync for your charity moment” and during the maxi-challenge.

After a “girl group” episode, filled with plenty of spunk, and a spirited “lipsync for your charity” moment between Hayley Kiyoko, Madison Beer, and Phoebe Robinson, Miss Queen Eleza Beth became “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar.” That means a cash prize of $30,000 was donated to the charity of her choice.
“This represents anyone at home who feels lost and needs a stage to shine. This is the place for you,” she shared, after receiving the scepter from her mentor. As a result, some fans took to social media, congratulating the actress and the other celebrities from the episode.
