RuPaul Wore A Mask Again During The "RuPaul's Drag Race" Finale And You Better Believe That People Have Thoughts

"RuPaul's new drag name should be Heidi Behind Mask."

Last night was the very much-anticipated RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 finale, which, like the reunion episode, was filmed virtually because of the quarantine.

Of course the finale featured the QUEEN of our hearts, Heidi N. Closet, being crowned this year’s Miss Congeniality...

...which even included a cameo from Miss Dolly Parton, herself!!!

We also got our Season 12 winner, Jaida Essence Hall, who, rightfully, sashayed away with the crown!!!

FTR, both Crystal Methyd and Gigi Goode were amazing and this was for sure a very close call.

But there was another thing fans of the show were talking about: Mama Ru wore a mask AGAIN, like she did in the reunion episode.

Now for some context (for those readers who might not know), Ru doesn't dress in drag for the reunion episode, but she does always go full-on eleganza extravaganza for the finale. So seeing Ru not in drag and just wearing another mask with a cape was disappointing, to say the least.

Of course, the internet had thoughts on that and here are some of the best reactions to Ru's finale look:

1.

Rupaul's new drag name should be Heidi Behind Mask #RuPaulsDragRace

Also, if anything, we need a "Night Of 1,000 Ru Masks" runway theme next season.
