The supermodel of the world beat out American Idol‘s Ryan Seacrest, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn from Project Runway, out actor Jane Lynch and Little Big Shots’ Steve Harvey.

RuPaul said he did not expect to win the award.

“I came here thinking I got invited to the prom and I’m going to dance my ass off tonight, but I didn’t expect that I would have this in my hand while dancing,” RuPaul said.

“It’s a very special night not just for me but for all the young people around the world who dance to the beat of a different drummer.”

Currently hosting the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Ru has hosted eight regular seasons and the first iteration of All Stars since 2009. The drag superstar said he dedicates the award to outsiders everywhere.

“Brave souls who, against all odds, stick to their dreams and make the world a more colourful place… on behalf of those people – my tribe – I am so grateful.”

The host tweeted a succinct, yet appropriate, response to the news.
