The winner of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8 has been announced and she never held back.

On Tuesday, TV Line posted an interview with this year's winner Bob the Drag Queen who revealed that she was "very confident" that she would win since before she even made it on the series.

"In my mind, I won RuPaul's Drag Race when I got the call saying, 'You're on the show,'" Bob said. "I remember sitting in a bar, watching my friend Bianca Del Rio win [Season 6] and experiencing that in my bones- it felt as if I'd won, like things to come. So when I walked into the room, I showed I had a lot of confidence and I never faltered from that."

The new drag superstar also revealed who her bigger competitor was this season with the others in the top three being Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls.

"Probably Kim Chi," Bob said. "Just because she's a really brilliant artist with a great mind and a really smart businessperson."

The queen also dished on her title as 'ratchet queen' and how that came about.

"I never consider myself ratchet," Bob said. "That is a title that was thrown on me by Michelle Visage, and the world just sort of ran with it. But I think people don't know what ratchet really means or what ratchet is. It almost sounds like people just think ratchet means black people when that's really not the case. Also, I think a lot of people use it as a negative. It doesn't offend me. But I genuinely don't think most people really know what they're talking about when they say ratchet."

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9 is expected to premiere sometime next spring on Logo TV.
