Hollywould on RuPaul's Drag Race

Interview: “RuPaul loves Gabriella Labucci”: Hollywould on her RuPaul’s Drag Race elimination

"I'm not gonna lie and say that she hasn't scraped through"

It’s no secret that Hollywould Star has been a front-runner on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under season two.

Before episode seven, she’d never been in a Lip Sync Of Your Life, and she’d won on two challenges. So, when she was eliminated after falling into the bottom two with Gabriella Labucci it came as somewhat of a shock, especially to her.

During an interview with Chattr, the drag queen said that the head judge RuPaul has a soft spot for Gabriella Labucci.

“RuPaul loves Gabriella Labucci,” she said. “I’m not gonna lie and say that she hasn’t scraped through in some challenges and that several of her performances haven’t really been the best or at the same level as everyone else.”

“So I was quite shocked that she was pulled through, especially with my track record and what I brought to the competition,” she added.

Hollywould thought she was going to win RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under

Hollywould revealed that she thought she had the competition in the bag, so she was surprised that she was eliminated after her impressive Lip Sync Of Your Life performance.

“It was an out-of-body experience to hear that I was sent home,” she said.

“I was very shocked [to be eliminated]. Everyone saw my track record, I won two episodes and I was never at the bottom. I felt that I showed myself very well and I felt that I slayed the last lip sync as well.

“In that moment, I just still had to hold my professionalism and be proud of what I did on the show. I got a lot of airtime and sometimes it’s not all about winning. So I feel just grateful that I made it to the top four.”
