Carmen Farala has sashayed-away with the crown…
The 30-year-old Spanish drag performer, whose real name is Daniel Mora, has been crowned the inaugural winner of Drag Race España, the offshoot of the U.S.’ Emmy-winning reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race.
A jury made up of presenter Supremme de Luxe, designer Ana Locking and filmmakers/actors Javier Ambrossi and his real-life partner Javier Calvo decided in the last episode, broadcast on Sunday night, that Farala would take home the crown and the 30,000 euro prize.
Farala, who never found herself in the bottom two during the competition, beat out Killer Queen and Sagittaria for the title.
For eight weeks, the finalists have taken part in all kinds of tests and Farala managed to win three maxi challenges during the season: the tribute to La Veneno, the night of the 1,000 Rosalías and the makeover of rugby players.
Produced by Atresmedia Televisión in collaboration with Buendía Estudios, the Drag Race format landed in Spain on May 30 on the Atresplayer Premium platform.
