Yeah, it's really refreshing to have a group where one of them hasn't been constantly spouting stupid negative poo poo and isn't making an rear end of herself before the finale like we've had for the last two seasons. I really like all of these girls a lot, and this is probably the closest it's ever been going into the finale. I honestly have no idea who's gonna take it.

I will not go down the hole again good sir.
Judging by all the stuff I have seen people talking about on social media, I think out of these three Bianca is well ahead of the other two in terms of popularity and will probably get the most votes.

Though, I have a feeling Ru will pick Adore.

Bianca's win seems inevitable, but Adore has been my favorite.

I'm keeping my bet on Bianca she's been the favorite for a reason. But while she might have been working this whole season like her life depended on it, after that last episode, I feel like Adore or Courtney now at least have a chance of snatching the crown. (Sadly, after bumping off Dela, Darienne never had a chance of winning that popularity contest.)

Pretty much, yeah. Bianca's the most polished since Chad, but Adore, man. Party.

I think Adore's got that crown. Bianca's off-the-show act is too raw and out-there. Not good for the brand, as some jamoke said on the mainstage.

Adore is really likable and a fantastic little performer. I just wish she had five more years on her.

Bianca has about 80% of the votes I saw after a cursory glance at facebook. I've only seen one person vote for Courtney.

what a humorous anecdote.
I'd honestly be fine with any of them winning, unlike Seasons 4 and 5 where I was "Team Not PhiPhi" and "Team Not Roxxxy." With the professional teams that come with the crown Adore would be fantastic in a really short time, Bianca is already there, and Courtney is amazing outside of Drag Race. She got really boring edits, but from everything I've seen that isn't in Drag Race, she's pretty great. The backhanded semi-compliments got real old real fast, I'll admit.
If I had to pick though, I would say Adore, if only because of how drat little Bianca needs anything from the crown at this point.

It was only a couple years ago that they went with Sharon Needles.

Adore's only problem is with her outfits, and that's mostly because her style doesn't fully translate to what Drag Race is looking for (when I saw her in Tampa she was wearing a Pizza Slut t-shirt and fishnet stockings, and it worked perfectly for the set). In every other respect she's already right where she needs to be... she's funny, charming, knows how to work a crowd, always has great makeup, has a fully realized character she can stick to, and can sing, lip sync, dance and act at least as well as anyone else there. Her mediocre runways have a lot of people online saying she's "just not there yet" and "relying on charm" and that's never felt reasonable to me, given how drat good she is at pretty much everything else.

Young Adore actually strongly reminds me of Young RuPaul, who was no perfectly polished queen either, but was most definitely a drag superstar. And Adore is definitely conceptually TV ready, if you've watched any of her YouTube videos (or, you know, the show).

Bianca's act being too harsh isn't going to knock the crown off her head. From a conceptual standpoint, actually, I think her well-intentioned "Everybody Say Hate" kind of performance is incredibly complemented to the RuPaul brand, while evoking some old-school bite that RuPaul sometimes lacked.

Yeah, but Sharon didn't start with the Nazi poo poo until after she'd won. She's lost a lot of goodwill and I can see Ru being gunshy about risking that again. And Bianca's standup is really scandalous. It's not hateful, but she goes there.

I really love Adore, but I hate her ombre wigs. I think she'd look a lot better in some big Alaska backcombed wigs instead. Can we get Alaska to style her? Actually I'd just love to see Adore and Alaska together, they'd be so fun.

It's funny how I hated Adore in the first episode and now she's my favourite. She's just really genuine and like she said, relatable. My first impression of her was "sassy little bitch", but she seems actually very sweet. I especially liked her comment about not saying anything mean about Laganja's bad ideas and she really tugged on the ol' heartstrings when she had her breakdown in the sewing challenge. She apologized for crying "all the time", but I think she's done just enough crying. It shows she's a real person and not just a perfect robot, like some other Courtney contestants.

I really do like Bianca, but I'm gonna have to go with Team Adore.

Manila literally did a race-y caricature and WON the challenge because of it. I think that Bianca's stand up really isn't much different to be honest.

Manila's Filipino heritage, plus her drag name, kind of put her in the clear for that. Besides, Imelda Marcos was a legitimately wacky figure.

I'm wondering whether I should drop the $25 to see the top 4 on for Pride weekend in DC. It's a bit steep, and it's going to be a madhouse, but if other people wanted to go I'd consider it.

I mean the news episode with her asian conglomerate interviewer. Like, I loved it, but to say Bianca does much different is stretching I think.

Miss Needles likes to use Nazi imagery and uniforms, along with confederate flags. Additionally, she's been known to call black queens certain nasty things when blackout drunk. There's a lot of controversy with her if you look into it.

Bianca Del Rio is in Portland for Pride and doing a an evening cruise show.

Well, it took a month, but I'm finally caught up with all the episodes. Everyone this season left when they were supposed to. Except Ben and Darienne. (grr, but not really.) Oh well, c'est la vie. And to be fair, Darienne turned it around and left looking good.

I'm still fully team Bianca, but holy poo poo Adore is amazing. Courtney and Darienne have their strong points, but they can't compete with the pro and the breakout in this competition.

But my favorite part of the episode? Ru's 'Charles' look. That was amazing. Bonus points for the sims 3 music during adore's photo shoot.

I wish they'd show the whole thing at some point. It wasn't even clear from the lipsync that Darienne was in the bottom (though I'm not saying I disagree with the decision).

The latest reddit conspiracies claim that the LSFYL was shot in two parts (Adore vs. Bianca and Courtney vs. Darienne) and that the top 4 elimination was shot like the crowning with none of them knowing who got into the top 3 till the episode aired. I'm not even sure what the point of that was, maybe picking them by the viewer reactions?

They already filmed the reunion, an I would stay away from any Drag race related websites (including trying to find the above mentioned final 4 LSFYL post on reddit) if you don't want some potentially major poo poo spoiled. Should be easy enough to find if you go looking for it, and you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it. I don't want to post it here (even behind a spoiler tag) in case someone accidentally sees it.

On a less spoilery note, everyone looked great in the pics I saw. Supposedly LaGanja seemed off again - happy pothead during interviews but visibly over the top abject when not on camera.
