I just don't like it when they bring back queens to All Stars twice or more. People keep calling for Adore to be on again and it's like, she had her shot.

I actually don't mind it at all if they're going to continue doing All Stars every year. Despite being Ru girls, there are a lot of filler queens who were cast with no expectation of making it very far. Each season there are only a handful of queens that are generally worthy of a second shot. You run through those queens pretty quickly the first time around in an All-Stars.

I especially don't blame them for bringing the queens back from the first season of All Stars. Bringing them back from All Stars season 2 does get a little side eye from me, but hell, it's been long enough. Let's see her again.

booyah!

I don't mind them bringing queens back multiple times as long as they are bringing back other queens first who I haven't seen in longer. Like if they haven't been back since season 10 aired, sure why not. If they've been on my screen recently then... I don't know, let someone else back first.

I think that's part of why I'm mostly fine with this AS6 cast. There's quite a few queens from older seasons, many of whom don't get a lot of appreciation from the younger fanbase.

Heroes vs Villains. Cast only those who won Miss Congeniality up against the show's biggest villains. Valentina represents both.

Blood vs Water. Cast alum queens and their drag daughters.

Winners at War. Winners of the show obviously.

Redemption Island. Queens voted off continue to compete in a separate competition, each week one queen sends the other home. Voted off first, but you win six lip syncs in a row? You've earned your spot back in the show.

I maintain she is one of the prettiest and most "Wait, that's a drag queen?! I thought that was a cis woman" (I dunno of a good, less-offensive replacement term for "fishy") queens to ever be on the show, but she always gets overlooked for her skinnier counterparts.

She and Vanjie were caught at the gay superspreader event in PV where that boat (the Twinktanic) sank. Vanjie at least seemed ashamed when she was caught and laid low after, but Silky made dumb excuses and even mocked people calling her out.

Ok. She was never able to handle criticism on the show, and it seems that she still is unable to handle criticism.

I get it. It sucks. I was moved to a new supervisor at work recently, and I turned in a case that I know my old supervisor would have loved, but my new one hated it. It was definitely a blow to my ego, but I know I just have to take her criticism, and apply it to my work going forward.

That's a great way to describe Naomi. I would never call her a villain either, but a heel? That's a term that needs to be introduced to Drag Race. I don't watch wrestling, but I'm aware of it through Survivor and Jonny Fairplay

Couldn't resist. But like, maybe getting self-righteous when people say "hey maybe not be terribly irresponsible during a pandemic" is a little different from not getting good feedback at work.

I've never heard of him, or this situation. Looking at his filmography, I suppose I've seen a couple things he was in, but I don't remember him at all.

I like that the edit is showing Kandy as a LOT more likeable in these later episodes.

It seems tonight is not the finale. I'm rooting for Rose who has been killing it lately, but I feel like it's going to be Symone, who I would not be upset about winning. If Kandy or whats her name win, it would be a travesty.

I won't be watching live tonight, I assume that we'll have a "You're all going to the Finale!" ending and the show formerly known as Joey Janella's Spring Break will be at the same time.

e: In the Act One preview, Ru says that the winner will be crowned "in two weeks". I assume the expected Reunion/Finale episodes are incoming.
