Kandy Zyanide, another trans contestant, was runner-up to Angele.
Throughout a truly sickening second season, contestants presented drag as an art, delivering plenty of jaw-dropping lewks and sass as the season narrowed down to three finalists: Kandy Zyanide (25-year-old Sukan Dongnoi from Bangkok), Kana Warrior (29-year-old Kana Nakrob from Nakhon Sawan) and recently crowned season two winner, Angele Anang (24-year-old Nchalee Anang Channuan from Nakhon Ratchasima).
However, Angele Anang came out on top proving herself throughout the season. She is the first queen in the franchise to win five challenges in a row and now holds the record for most challenge wins in a single seasons. Overall, she won a total of six challenges, beating BenDeLaCreme’s former record of five from All Stars 3.
