“Miss Vanjie… Miss Vanjie… Miss Vanjie…”

When Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams emerged victorious from her lip-sync against Vanessa Vanjie Mateo in the Drag Race season 10 premiere, viewers were truly shook, gooped, gagged, even cooped.

Besides Shangela in season two – who then went on to compete in season three and All Stars 3 – no other first-out queen has had as much impact as Miss Vanjie, with her elimination spawning several hilarious, gag-worthy memes. Oh honey, even Mama Ru has joined in!

We’ve collected ten of the best memes (so far) that show why Vanessa “Miss Vanjie” Mateo is the true Drag Race season 10 winner. Sorry remaining queens, but none of ya’ll will measure up to the iconic, revolutionary and groundbreaking Vanjie.

Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Thursdays on VH1, and one day after on UK Netflix.

To celebrate ten years since Drag Race’s premiere, the season features 90 minute episodes and the ru-turn of Untucked on TV.

“To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we’ve pulled out all the stops. The queens, the challenges and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts. And I’m thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1,” Mama Ru said in a statement.

“‘Cause, henny, if you ain’t watching Untucked, you’re only getting half the story. Okurrr?” She added: “While preparing for season 10, I realized that one of our contestants was 11 years-old when we first launched Drag Race.

“The fact that we’re still here and still going strong is because of our talented queens. They are the heart and soul of the series. And as they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of drag, so does Drag Race.”
