Kandy Muse Is Doing This With Her $5,000 'Drag Race' Prize

Kandy Muse in the roast.

Truly the sweetest thing. 

RuPaul's Drag Race has given out a hell of a lot of money. While the RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. series isn't giving the girls much, the last few seasons of the U.S. version have seen the show dole out more and more cash as opposed to sponsored gift cards and the like. And honestly: we love to see it. Competitors sink a ton of money into the show in hopes of either winning or making it all back un post-show touring and appearances. But it's nice to see them get some of it back before the series has even ended.

On the latest episode, Kandy Muse racked up the wins. First, she won the Anastasia Beverly Hills-sponsored mini-challenge. Working with Rose, she made a comedic video tutorial using Norvina products. The win meant that the pair got to choose the order for how the queens would appear in the Nice Girls Roast. Muse chose to go first, setting the bar quite high for the rest of the line up, with Rose to close. It served the pair well with Muse winning the challenge and a $5,000 cash prize. The episode marked Muse's first maxi-challenge win.

"I can finally afford to send my mothers on their honeymoon with this win tonight!" Muse tweeted of the win. "Years ago they used all of the money for the honeymoon to make sure we weren't homeless. They don't even know it but I've been planning since I got back from filming Drag Race."

Muse has talked about her lesbian moms previously. One of them, Patricia, appeared on the show wishing Muse good luck -- after that appearance, Muse revealed to fans that her mother was a married woman. The drag performer also talked about her family on a recent YouTube video with PatrickStarrr, who she impersonated for Snatch Game.

"Do your parents and family like love Kandy?" Starrr asked ask they applied their makeup.

"Oh my god, yeah" Muse replied. "So I have two mothers. My entire family is so supportive of Kandy. They watch the show every Friday and they tell me who their faves are, who they don't like. I'm not one of their faves, but it's fine.

"It's nice having a supportive family," Muse continued. "Not everyone has that so I feel very lucky and blessed to have that. They've always taught me to be like humble."

She went on to say that one of her moms called when Muse and Tamisha Iman got in their infamous exchange, "pissed."

"She was just like 'I did not raise you to be acting like that on TV in front of the world,'" Muse recalled.
