What was the reaction to season 11 while it was airing? Idk htf Silky has made it this far lol

I couldn't stand her during season 11, and it remains the one season that I have not rewatched specifically because of her. She was so throughly unpleasant, and it was obvious to me that production was dragging her to the finale regardless of how she did, whether because it was for the drama, or because they've been wanting to crown a big girl for a while now.

I did feel for her at the finale though. She knew that the fans did not like her, and that she didn't stand a chance at winning, no matter how well she did. She looked completely dejected. Despite how much I disliked her during the season, I hope she is doing okay. I don't think I've seen anything about her since.

I think the main reason folks blame the editing re. Silky is one fact in particular: throughout the season, various shots of Silky having a sourpuss are shown. Silky wears glasses, and was not squinting because another contestant got a good critique. She was squinting because she can't see! The fact that production peppered in various shots of Silky squinting at certain times (to make it seem like she was sulking at Yvie's good critiques or whatever) is so drat unfair. She can't see! Other contestants have vouched for her!

Also, Silky's sloppy-rear end runways make me miss Eureka so much. Say what you will about her being annoying or her hair loaf or her being "carried" in S10...her runaways almost always FIT RIGHT.

Not much to it to be honest. The maxi challenge was to film a military PSA type thing. Alexis made references to an ex-bf or something that was overseas at the time. She incorporated a call out to him in her PSA. Was he fake and made up? Who knows and who cares. The runway category was military/patriotic something. Alexis used the jacket of a marine dress uniform as part of her outfit.

I really hated Silky whilst the season aired and the fact she didn't even pick Yvie to lip-sync in the finale meant there wasn't even a satisfying end to her reign.

Speaking of Nina West...am I the only one who thought her fringe runway (episode 3) was one of the ugliest things ever worn on the show? The outfit itself combined with the flesh-tone color just looked so...ugh. Didn't she win that episode, even?

Other contenders for me are Pearl's Hello Kitty look, Pearl's snake runway, and Sharon's First Lady runway.

Derrick Berry's serial-killer-wall swimsuit from s8 was a standout for me. Actually all her looks from that challenge were ghastly but that one was just sad.

I know that's a notorious "ugliest ever" runway, but for some reason, at the time, I didn't hate it? I suppose because a) I was impressed that it was made fully out of wigs, and b) I was too busy having heart eyes over Kameron's three looks. <3

I didn't hate Cracker's AS5 camo look, except for one thing. The titties looked bad, sure, but THAT COLLAR. I couldn't stop hollering every time she was on-screen during the deliberations. It just looks so...cheap! Nitpick on my end, but for some reason, it drove me insane.

PhiPhi's roast (standup?) look wasn't technically a runway, but good LORD, that was a cringe-y, racist mess.

Aja's first run on the show is a giant mess of looks because I think she used to just post on Insta?

Also finally started on Season 1, the last season and it's insane how much of a turd Shannel is!! Like, Akashia is literally proto-Tyra except minus any talent whatsoever but Shannel is just like making GBS threads on people for not knowing who Oprah is or not agreeing she is literally a God

Shannel's annoying, but entertaining. Couldn't stand her the first time I watched. Second time, though, I did sympathize with her because the judges really didn't appreciate anything she did.

She's responsible for 3 of the funniest moments in the season too. That ridiculous costume for the Oprah challenge, the lipstick story, and Miss Mandarin (thpthpthpthpthpthp).

I could never fully get on board with Nina in general. I think she got a LOT of leeway just because she's such a drag legend in the Columbus scene. She certainly seems nice, but did she ever bring a great look? Not really. Was she particularly funny? Not really.

since it was the 3 of them (jade coco alyssa) in untucked alone because they were safe, my guess is it would be untucked of whatever episode had 9 girls left in it, and looking that up it's snatch game, so s5e5 untucked

I agree that Nina had hit or miss moments over the season, but I've always struggled with the idea of her drag just being bad- I thought she brought excellent camp for most of her run! The problem was that it wasn't high fashion camp, just camp, and the judges have never had an appreciation for that.

And the one week she did bring extremely high fashion camp she was safe and didn't get any props for it! Which was so frustrating. I mean come on:


Also I will never understand the judges hating on her opera singer look. It is some excellent parody.

Just off the top of my head, Nina's little shop Seymour look was super campy and fun, her facekini look was great, and her Salem burning witch look was also a campy fun one. And the trans flag one was nice to see on the show. She's definitely not glamour or fashion in her style and her looks aren't the main event but I thought those were all good ones.

She was very good and funny in the magic show. I think in general she's also got great talking heads, and her interactions with the other queens were funny and light-hearted, she's easy to like.

Yeah, perhaps I was too harsh. I don't dislike her. And like I said yesterday, I haven't rewatched season 11 because of how toxic Silky was, so maybe I was just overlooking and forgetting some of what Nina did.

I miss drag shows so much. Dances of Vice's Pride latex/fetish party was postponed and Bushwig was canceled this year, obviously. Some of the performances I saw last year really blew me away. Online drag shows are cool but god drat, you do not get the same energy.
