In week two of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars Season 4, there was no mini challenge, but the Maxi Challenge was an audition to the new super group “Henny” where the girls had to perform in two teams. Each team had to write and record their own lyrics, and create their own choreography, style and overall look. The top two from last week served as captains and the teams were:
Trinity – Valentina, Latrice, Manilla, and Gia
Monique – Monet, Naomi, and Farrah
Stacey Lane Matthews, the original “Henny” creator was in the house and the teams were tasked with featuring her in their choreography.
The runway category was “Elegance after dark.” In the end Valentina and Monet were the top two of the week, and Monique and Farrah were the bottom two. Valentina won the Lip Sync for legacy and sent Farrah home.
It was a pleasure to sit down with Farrah Moan for this exclusive Hotspots interview:
How has your life changed since you were on Drag Race?
Oh do a dare say, my life has taken a 180. Before I was on Drag Race I was a struggling artist with a dream. I made a list and did it all. I went to counting coins from my sofa to get something to eat to traveling the world. I am so blessed to be where I am!
What have been some of your favorite cities to visit as a RuPaul Alumni?
I fell in love with Hawaii. I also fell in love with New York, because I toughened up. In addition, London, and Santiago, Chile were some of my favorites.
How exciting was it to get called back for All-Stars? Did you consider not coming back, and if so, what made you come back?
I was very excited when I got the call, however, part of me had to weigh out the pros and cons, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t need a day or two to decide. Once I committed, I went full force, and I am still so thankful for it.
How did you prepare differently for All-Stars than you did the first time you were on the show?
For Season 9 it was difficult since I didn’t have the funds to make the things I wanted to happen, happen. Some looks ended up being good and some were flops. For All-Stars, I had the money so I made sure everything I wore was part of my creative vision and I was very happy. I definitely went all in!
Are you and Valentina still friends?
Valentina and I will always be friends. It does suck that it had to be her that eliminated me, but she had to do what she had to do. There will always be a place in my heart for her.
Now that you have been eliminated, who do you want to win?
It was such an honor to get to compete alongside such legends, and everyone brought their best drag. My favorite drag queens are Latrice, Manilla, Naomi and Trinity; so if any of them win, I will be over the moon.
What’s ahead for Farrah?
You can guarantee I will have more crystals [laughs]. In addition, I definitely want to venture into the music and make-up worlds. I also want to continue to travel the world and perform and make people happy.
