Yeah a shortened run time on VH1 certainly doesn't help, but there's a lot of people actin' new (in general, not just this thread) like episodes have never aired before without a mini challenge or shortened runway. The pacing should even out back to normal-ish when we're down a few more queens.

eureka can be funny, but the way she acted and talked over everyone made me hate her. especially the "I'm sorry you were offended." I mean gently caress you.

Oh, for what it's worth I skimmed through a bunch of the seasons checking episode length, to double check, and the switch to VH1 hasn't changed anything. There are some episodes that were a little longer, yeah, but in general the show is 42-45minutes.

Probably feels short af because All Stars 2 had extra long episodes due to the way eliminations were done.

Is that what happened? Makes sense now. The dresses are also a mess. And the runway lighting is poo poo. I can't tell what color anything is. It wasn't until Untucked that I realized Farrah's hair was pink.

Meryl Streep dance-clapping at a lingerie themed wedding. Is something that I just saw. I had to watch the Alyssa/Tatianna lip sync to get the taste out my mouth.

Charlie i love you but you look bad here my bud.

Nina was dead Nicki Minaj and I was so here for it.

Sasha is so beautiful, ugh. What a treasure. Her interaction with eureka really sucked, she was trying to be real and Eureka was just like "nah bitch it was a fucken joke bitch sorry if you got offended" like bitch, shut up. I hate what the editing on this show does to big girls but you actually said "I'm sorry if you were offended."

The queen notes in untucked for Charlie were JUST TOO MUCH. LOL Charlie surprised about Aja's' handwriting.

Also, this HAS to be the most one sided lip sync in drag race herstory, right? The only one i can think of off the dome is Princess x Dida Ritz, but that was nowhere near this whole mess.

It's up there but the time Dida Ritz murdered the Princess live on stage on television will always be the most brutal execution.

Well, Tammie, but I'm not sure that even counts since she didn't actually lip sync.

That one and Kenya vs Latrice were the only other obvious, "oh poo poo, you have no chance" within the first few seconds lip sync.

There are mostly rumors as far as I can tell. Some say Mathu wanted a raise and VH1 refused. Others say he was ill.
All we know is Raven and Delta were the ones in charge of Ru's beat during these difficult times.

It wasn't the padding, it was how tight she was cinched. She got her waist about as big around as her head. Pretty impressive.

This but Valentina instead of Farrah. I actually like Farrah it's just very competitive this year

I really really like Sasha as a person since she's obviously a queer studies nerd but she has yet to totally wow me. Hopefully she'll get more spotlight later.

swap farrah with valentina and you've got it. i literally dont see how else it could go, save aja or farrah having miracles

this season is weird bc of how obvious the winners are. everyone else either has a fun personality but not much talent, or talent in pne area without being wellrounded
