'Drag Race España', produced by Buendía Estudios, has managed to conquer the followers of the format and has been praised by the audience and critics unanimously during the last weeks.
‘Drag Race Spain’ already has a winner. After several weeks of intense challenges of sewing interpretation, comedy or even singing, it was time to decide who was the first Spanish drag superstar. The finalists had their most complicated challenge ahead: to offer the jury a show of dancing and singing that would leave them with their mouths open in order to be crowned in the grand final. Finally, Carmen Farala has been chosen to wear the crown and thus be proclaimed winner of the first edition of the program in ATRESplayer PREMIUM.
For eight weeks, the finalists have passed all kinds of tests and have given everything they had inside. A long-distance race to win the 30,000 euros prize.
In this grand final, the finalists were surrounded by all their teammates. Arantxa Castilla La Mancha, Dovima Nurmi, Drag Vulcano, Hugaceo Crujiente, Inti, Pupi Poisson and The Macarena accompanied Carmen Farala, Killer Queen and Sagittaria on their most important night.
The decision, however, was in the hands of Supremme de Luxe and the rest of the jury members: Ana Locking, Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo. They had the last word once they could see the great show that each of the finalists had put on for their coronation.
Carmen Farala: “I win this war alone”
Carmen Farala waded in the workshop from day one. “I have fought many battles in company, however, I win this war alone,” she said as soon as she entered the program. She decided to present herself with this slogan because, for many years, she has worked with the group Hermanas Farala and has stepped on many stages in company. This time, however, it was time for solitary struggle.
31 years old and born in Seville, Carmen Farala, now lives in Madrid. She has been considered very perfectionist during the program and that has made her win three maxi challenges during the edition: the tribute to La Veneno, the night of the 1000 Rosalías, and the makeover of rugby players.
The ‘Drag Race Spain’ revolution
