I haven't seen anything about Bebe outside of Drag U, Tyra has dropped off the face of the earth, Sharon let fame get to her and most of her old fans from the show don't even care about her anymore.
On the other hand, Raja is still integrated into the WoW machine, Jinkx is doing a LOT (drag becomes him, musicals, tours, etc) and Bianca is doing tours and working on Hurricane Bianca. So far it's 50/50 as to winning getting you somewhere.

Hell, even Sharon had a good thing going for a while. Her album was pretty succesful (well, for a drag queen, but still). It's really only Tyra that seems to have completely vanished, at least form my radar. I don't hear much about Bebe, but then again that WAS the "lost season" she was on.

Yeah. It's still been entertaining, but last season set the bar incredibly high and this is one of the least interesting of the recent seasons, so the contrast is all the more stark.

Last year I was already worried that this season would feel lackluster... I never expected this.

The show's still fab, I just want to fast-forward to next year's version.

I was prepared for a Bitter Old Lady Brigade + 1 Top 3 but this is my Post-Max Post-Katya Dream Team so I am pleased with this outcome.

I think Kennedy really hosed herself by wearing that piece cos she couldn't move for poo poo in the lipsync.

I actually really liked Kennedy's dress and was a bit surprised she got sent home, but drat that condescending 'you don't know anything, you're young' poo poo just makes my blood boil. I won't be mad if Ginger wins because she's really talented, but I would love to see her get beaten (rightfully) by the girls she's sneered at all season. I'll always have a place in my heart for Pearl, but Violet's been a standout all season - this was the first time she had to lip synch - and it's clear she's really serious and passionate about drag.

I agree that all the team/acting challenges brought this season down. They also didn't seem quite as creative as the ones the last few seasons (although I really liked the spoken word and John Waters challenges). And, now that I think about it, we didn't get a 'make dudes into queens' episode!

BIG CITY LAWYER posted:

I hate the 3/4 way lipsyncs; you don't really get to focus on everybody enough to really judge and there's not a lot of room on the stage for anybody. The result just ends up as anticlimactic since it's hard to tell who 'won'. I know it's a lost cause since they've been doing it for so long, but I miss when they just had a regular drat finale and there was a two person lipsync to get into the final 3.

After this episode Ginger is the only one I actually give a poo poo about but at this point the season is basically like American politics, I don't actually want anyone to win but my vote goes to the least bad.

Ginger's become a total rear end in a top hat and it's a bummer they couldn't eliminate her AND Kennedy before bringing back Katya to round out the top 3.

Bitch. Have you ever watched the show?

Oh my goooooood no more old queen bitching. Back in your day, blah blah, shut up. "You are too young to take on this kind of responsibility." Motherfucker it is a DRAG COMPETITION you are not running for president.

As much as I really like Pearl's attitude in general and how she's possibly the most laid-back queen ever to be on the show except for moments when Jinkx was actually sleeping, Violet is winning it for me. She does really awesome looks but more importantly she seems to have grown a lot and she is a lot more likable than she was at the start.

Still, flasaydah, bitches.

rip kennedy, too bad it didn't happen last week

I really need a gif of Violet's pulled-back scrunchface when Ginger was trying to get in her head after the main challenge rehearsal. And Pearl's bored "oh for gently caress's sake not this poo poo again" face when they cut to her. That was just great.

One thing that really bothered me this season was that there was more focus on the opportunity for catch-phrasing and overusage of team challenges. It hit me mid episode that I didn't really see much vulnerability from anyone this season until last-loving-night's episode. I had no idea Kennedy was a legal guardian or that Pearl had such a traumatic experience as a child. It seems like one of the reasons, to me anyway, why this season fell flat is because that's how everyone was painted - completely one dimensional with catchy phrases and an emphasis on the runway. The lack of workroom banter and genuine interest in the lives of the contestants seemed to be the death knell for this season.

This is really right on for me. Kennedy in particular, I wouldn't have had any idea till they mentioned it last night. I wish they would have gotten more into things like that rather than just, like you said, painting a one-dimensional picture of most everyone. Katya's stress was probably the most real emotional poo poo this season.

EDIT: I hope Katya's future WoW Youtube show is some kind of Borat-esque drag hooker comes to America. She could swing it.
