Bianca Del Rio has revealed that RuPaul's Drag Race season six filmed an alternative 'tied win' between herself and Adore Delano - but not Courtney Act.
Of course, Bianca ultimately won the 2013 installment of the show, with Adore and Courtney finishing in joint second place.
However, speaking to the Exposed: Dragged Out podcast, Bianca recalled feeling sorry for Courtney during filming - because she deduced the extra ending meant The Bi Life star "wasn't going to get s**t."
"Courtney was left standing there"
"Yes they did film [a tie]," 46-year-old Bianca said. "As people know, it's been said many times, they film all of us winning and that particular episode, that particular night when we were there [...] they did all of us, and then they did one more.
"I remember going 'what the f**k, what the f**k?'"

Bianca - who recently gatecrashed an episode of All Stars 6 - went on: "As soon as they said it was a tie, I was sad. Not because I didn't win but because Courtney was left standing there."
The star - who later says she always thought Adore would win - went on: "It was quite obvious that [Courtney] wasn't going to get s**t. That's what I was concerned about.
"So in that moment I was kind of lost and in my brain I was going 'how could they do this to Courtney? What the f**k is going on? What are we going to do about the money, are we splitting $100,000 dollars? This is some crazy shit! Just pick one of us and let it be.'"
