What was the most challenging part of the competition? I think the most challenging part for me was just topping myself constantly.
Why are Raven and Raja always together? : rupaulsdragrace
Every challenge, I had to compete with what was going on in my own head. Did you always feel it would come down to you and Manila?
I only knew that I wanted to be there and I was really glad that Manila was there with me, because I thought there were a lot of parallels in our thought process and our lives. Manila was a brilliant graphic designer and illustrator. So, we were able to relate on that level and I was just glad to have someone that I can treat not only as my fellow performer, but just as a colleague.
I would have loved to have duked it out with Delta. What was it like going to head-to-head with Manila in the final lip-sync?
At that moment, it felt like we were just having a good time. How many people in their lives get to lip-sync for their lives as the final two in a competition in front of RuPaul? We just went with it and had a great time. RuPaul has said that Season 3 takes the competition to a whole new level. Do you think RuPaul had different standards going into this competition and you just fit the bill? There were two really successful seasons and I think it might have been time for them to show the other sides of drag.
I can definitely put on a beautiful gown and red carpet hair.
I got all that stuff. It hangs out in my apartment. During the final lip-sync, Tyra gave an over-the-top performance, outshined Raven's act and Raven lost the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar", leaving Raven to be the runner-up.
