  1. I'd add the comedy writers to that list. Skits on RuPaul used to have at least a few really good jokes and they were honestly fun to watch, and now they're just boring as hell. I also completely disagree with Kylie's win, I thought she was terrible. She's just not silly enough for the show, I don't think I've ever seen her laugh or make any kind of jokes in the workroom, she takes everything too seriously and she seems kind of disconnected from the rest of the group, so I really don't understand why she's still here (and Scarlet is not). Pandora, on the other hand, is my absolute favorite
  2. I honestly don't understand the hype for Karen from Finance. Is it only because she had been mentioned by some other drag queens before the Down Under season started? Why is she in the final four? I mean, I have nothing against her personally, she seems very nice, but she's been kind of middle-of-the-road for the entire season. I wish Maxi was still here instead of her.
  3. I only have three things to say (apart from the fact I'm very happy and relieved Symone won, she truly deserved it and had been my favorite all along): 1. if that's really Kandy Muse's mom, wow girl. How old was she when she had Kandy? Minus 10 years old? She looks like a teenager! 2. I can't help but think the spinning wheel was rigged, because the only way to make sure Kandy would be in the final two was to have her lipsync against Rosé. Gottmik wasn't exactly my favorite, but she deserved a spot in the final lipsync more than Kandy, who IMO didn't even deserve to be in the final 4
  4. steal the look: Wow, they are really willing to go to the greatest lengths to keep Kandy in. They just CAN'T eliminate her. I would wonder what that does to her self-esteem, but I don't think she realizes. Anyway, as much as I love Rosé, I agree that her runway look wasn't very flattering. I like the idea but the dress was a bit wonky and it made her and her neck look very short. At this point I really, really hope Symone wins.
  5. I don't understand why Symone and Kandy fought so hard over the role of Dominique when Dominique was clearly the character that had the least amount of screen time and lines and also the character it would be the least fun to play because she was the only queen who didn't shrink. Kandy's outfit looked like one of those shower curtains that have pockets where you can put hair products and brushes and stuff. It even had hooks. As a matter of fact if she had gone for the real, see-through thing and put shampoo, a loofah and a couple rubber duckies in the pockets she might have actually look
  6. Although I understand the concept of a pot-stirrer who keeps the audience watching, I still don't understand why the judges would agree to go out of their way and look this phony and incompetent just for the sake of pleasing the producers. I mean, if needs must they could still keep Kandy on without acting so fake! In any case, I still prefer to watch queens loving and supporting each other (see: RuPaul UK) than someone creating drama for no reason and being undeservedly kept on the show when someone else (see: basically everyone who was eliminated before Kandy) who deserved it more was sent p
  7. I couldn't agree more with all of this. When Ross Mathews said during the critiques that Kandy set the standard for everyone that followed her and "no one topped that" I wanted to cry. I think what happened is the judges decided beforehand (like 5 episodes ago) that Kandy needed to win a challenge because she was the only one who had never won, so they said "ok, the first time she doesn't blatantly suck we're going to give her a win." So when this roast came about, they were like "ok you guys, this is our (only) chance" and then tried to laugh as hard as they could to give the impression
  8. what. just. happened. I was already a bit upset when Ellie didn't make it to the top three. I agree she wasn't ready for the crown but I would've FOR SURE put her above LC. Tayce and Bimini were the only true contenders for the crown, and I wouldn't have cared who won between them two, I love them both. But Lawrence Cheney?! Why? Well I guess Ru has been enamoured with her since day one, set her heart on it and refused to see anything that happened afterwards. I hope this doesn't mean we're (slowly, very slowly) heading for a Kandy win in the US race. Other than that, I loved this s
  9. That's true, but I get where she's coming from. People are afraid of everything these days, especially if you're on TV and on a show like RuPaul's, whose audience is very PC-aware. She just thought it would be better to stay on the extra safe side than to risk offending someone. And what about when she said that accent sounded like complete gibberish and she couldn't make out a word Rosé was saying? Has she ever heard herself talk? The nerve on that girl. For all I know she could've been impersonating Patrick Star from Spongebob. She would've looked and sounded exactly the sam
  10. The running order drama felt soooo fake. I'm not sure what they expected Ellie to do, pick herself to go first? No one wants to go first, that's quite obvious, but someone has to do it and I don't blame her for choosing the person who has been slagging her off from day one. And I'm sorry to say I'm not surprised Lawrence sided with Awhora and attacked Ellie too. Awhora is evil incarnate but Lawrence has also been showing a mean streak lately, and her stand-up wasn't that funny. Everyone keeps saying Lawrence is a comedy queen but I actually think she just has funny comebacks, 'cause so far she
  11. I'm bummed that Sister Sister went home because I still don't know why but I liked her a lot. She was funny. Anyway, I felt like there were no more expendable queens even before Tia left (I miss her!), so at this point whoever leaves would be a loss for the show. The only queen I still don't like is Awhora, but her dress tonight was incredible, so it was clear she wouldn't be eliminated. I would've put Biminy in the bottom, though. Her outfit, with those butt cheek plungers and the oily hair, was a bit tacky. And I can't believe Michelle praised her eyebrows, they were all wobbly!
  12. I swear to god that song is the gift that keeps giving. Seems to be triggered by absolutely everything I've been seeing and doing for the past 10 days. I need help.
  13. It will be very sad to watch the show without Tia's funny talking heads from now on. I absolutely don't agree with Ru's decision and I don't quite get it. I think Tia has much more to offer overall than other queens like Awhora or Ellie, whom I do love (Ellie, not Awhora), but for sure not more than Tia. She was a really memorable character on the show and had so much airtime, and deservedly so, because she brought something extra that added a lot to each episode. The show will be boring and bland without her! And okay, I do understand her looks were a bit shabbier than the other queens', but
  14. I am once again speechless at this show. At this point I'm wondering if Kandy saved the life of one of Ru's family members or if Ru owes her money or something because I honestly do not understand what is going on with them two. Plastic daisies, terrible lipsync(s), worst performance in the Rusical but no, I'm not ready to let you go. Well, I was. I didn't really love the Rusical, it seemed a bit too chaotic and confusing at times but Rosé did fantastic and she deserved to win, even though that outfit really was orange. Denali and Gottmik were great too, although I'm not sure how the Rus
  15. Yes I agree, my "how can they not know what's going on" was more in the sense of how can they not realize people at home are gonna call BS on this kind of unreasonable critiques that make absolutely no sense and on top of that are detrimental to other, more deserving queens in the competition. I understand Ru and the producers want to keep pot-stirrers on the show as long as they can for the sake of "good TV" drama, but like 30 Helens said upthread, I'm also one of those viewers who are not interested in that and would forever choose charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent over drama poten
