Last month, contestant Jimbo reigned supreme in the All Stars series, having originally starred in the 2020 series of Canada's Drag Race. Jimbo beat Kandy Muse to the $200,000 prize and that prestigious spot in the franchise's Hall of Fame.

"The third time truly is a charm, and, you know what they say, never give up. I'm the first international queen in the Hall of Fame," she said after her victory.

"This win proves that, with enough drive and determination and love and support, you can do anything, and I'm ready to take over the mother-tucking world.

"This is the dream of a lifetime that I could never have ever predicted, and I'm so grateful. Thank you to all of my fans and all of my sisters, and, of course, Mama Ru."
