RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 4 gave us plenty of veteran talent to cheer about this week. It was the supergroup episode, in which RuPaul was auditioning the girls to form a band called "Henny."

The queens lit up the stage with what makes them special including incorporating special guest star Stacy Layne Matthews into their choreographed routines. 

Of course, as good as they all are, there still has to be a bottom two; this week it was Monique Heart and Farrah Moan, leaving winners Monét X Change and Valentina to decide their fates. 

If you haven't figured it out yet, the doomsday lipstick went to Farrah and she was sent sashaying away into the pink sunset. 

We spoke to the fallen queen after her episode aired, and she told us a  few things about competing, inspiration and the agony of defeat. 

San Diego Gay and Lesbian News: Why is All Stars harder to compete on than Drag Race?

Farrah Moan: All Stars is harder because you are being judged by your peers. You can be eliminated because you are the worst or because someone just doesn't like you. There are so many factors that go into All Stars. You have to always be the best all the time.

What changes have there been to you personally since your first time on the show?

I feel like the changes that have happened to me have all been positive. I have grown up a lot. I have a different outlook on life and have a different perspective on the art of drag and my own career. I am in a place I have always dreamed of being. Being catapulted on a television show is hard for anyone, but I have to always see the beauty in it.

Who among the remaining cast do you admire most? Why?

I admire Trinity so much. She comes from a broken background and she never let that be a crutch or hinder her from achieving her goals and always goes for the win. She has passion and drive that I hadn't quite seen before. I knew when we met on Season 9 I knew she was a force to be reckoned with. I would love to soak up some Trinity for sure.

What would have winning All Stars meant to you?

Winning would have been the ultimate validation for me. I have never won anything in my whole life and it would have been cool to have that shining moment. I have a lot of life to live and I am still young and have a long career ahead of me. It wasn’t my time but my time could still come, you never know.

What are you working on? Plans for the future?

I want to keep sparkling and keep performing. I have some really cool tours coming up internationally and I want to dive into music and maybe dip my toes in the makeup industry.

And just keep living.

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 4 airs on VH1: Fridays at 8 pm - 7 Central.
