Season 14’s Miss Congeniality, Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté, returned to the finale stage dressed as a glamorous lioness, complete with face prosthetics, alongside her bestie, season 14 winner Willow Pill. The Hocus Pocus 2 actress performed a hilarious rap honoring each of the current season queens before presenting Malaysia with the title, which was determined by a vote among the season 15 contestants.

“In a season full of eras, I guess I’m finally in my Congenial Era,” Malaysia replied after being given the title.

Malaysia wasn’t the only one to walk away with a cash prize as Kornbread also announced each season 15 queen was getting a $2,000 tip courtesy of Olay Body, for which she is a brand spokesperson.

Malaysia served memorable TV moments throughout season 15, including tussling with both Mistress and Marcia Marcia Marcia, as well as opening up about her emotional journey growing up as a gay child in a religious community.

“Just like sisters in real life, you know, you fight, you argue, but at the end of the day, you just cannot live without that person,” Malaysia previously told EW’s Quick Drag podcast of her close relationship to Mistress. “That’s just kinda how me and Mistress’ dynamic is. And I think coming to the competition in such a high stress environment of being in a competition and everybody wanting to win, you kind of find those people that you can relate to the most. And I think that our background and drag is most relatable compared to some of the other girls. So I think immediately she was drawn to me. I was not drawn to her. Let’s just put that out there,” she joked.
