Sasha Colby is a former Miss American and the world’s most famous drag queen. She won an acting challenge, the ball, the interview challenge, and the final music video challenge. Sasha is also a self-taught drag artist and the founder of the drag network Drag Race.
From the moment she entered the Werk Room, Sasha Colby — the trailblazing trans titan of drag — was the one to beat. And no one could do it. The former Miss Continental never landed in the bottom two, walked into the finale with four challenge wins, and received high praise from the judges and the fans. After the “Blame It on the Edit” music video, the world’s most famous drag queen, RuPaul, told Sasha, “I’m the motherf***ing queen of drag! I’m amazed by you!”
Sasha consistently showed her versatility. She won an acting challenge, the ball, the interview challenge, and the final music video challenge. And even in the challenges she didn’t win, she was a standout. In the Rusical, she stepped out of her comfort zone and played a dorky husband, which made her practically unrecognizable but hilarious. Her runway looks were always showstoppers and earned her seven Top Toots from the “Drag Race” web series “Fashion Photo RuView.” For the finale, Sasha was carried onto the stage for her solo performance “Goddess,” wearing a detachable snake tail and long braids that ended up being incorporated into the choreography. Her final head-to-head battle against Anetra was fierce, but Sasha peeled ahead and won the gold. She dedicated her win to her trans community.
When we met Sasha Colby in the “Meet the Queens” video, she confidently told the world, “I am your favorite drag queen’s favorite drag queen.” And now, she is America’s Next Drag Superstar. Condragulations!
