Another season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" has come and gone -- perhaps the most entertaining season since the game changed for the reality show when it became hugely popular during season four.

America's newest drag superstar is officially New York City's Bob The Drag Queen, who received her crown Monday night, with Chicago and Los Angeles queens Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls, respectively, coming in as runner-ups.

"This season was the most competitive ever,” said RuPaul in a press release sent to The Huffington Post. “And still, all things considered, America's Next Drag Superstar could only be Bob the Drag Queen. Her charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent is gigantic, and the world of entertainment has been blessed with a bright new star! Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls are so much more than runner-ups. They are gorgeous, talented queens who have captured the hearts and imaginations of the world and are destined for greatness."

Check out some photos from the Monday night crowning and finale party at Stage 48 in NYC, and check HuffPost Queer Voices tomorrow for an exclusive interview with this year's top three contestants.

And don't forget... "All Stars" season two is right around the corner
