    Likewise but I had to revisit as it's just been added onto Netflix.

    To be fair Season 8 wasn't much better either. Bob The Drag Queen as the winner MY ARSE.

    Season 8 was a huge improvement, Bob might be obnoxious but he was pretty damn good at the challenges. The Empire skit with Thorgy on the other side was amazing.

    Where Bob fell short was the actual drag part of the competition. Thorgy is really... fascinating, shall we say? Her irritation as Bob keeps winning is really something. I also liked that those three (if we include Betty) all had a particular dynamic that wasn't strictly friendship, or at least not in a cloying Rolaskatox way.

    Thorgy probably would have walked Season 7.

    Kennedy, as always, is SUPREMELY underrated.

    Not really, she made it to the top 4, that's way beyond her actual value.

    Let's not forget the vastly overrated snatch game (actually, let's). I think she has quite a nastu streak that was more apparent in her Hey Kween slot.

    Finally, someone else who doesn't get her snatch... game.

    Her snatch game was one of the funniest of all time. Kennedy was a very old-school queen and that style isn't in favour now, hence why I think she's underrated despite her top 4 placing

    Clearly it was divisive, but Kennedy's Snatch Game is easily one of the funniest of all time for me.

    "I said a BATH HOUSE with a DARK ROOM and GLORY HOLES! Ain't gonna be a lot of SANGIN' happenin' up in THERE HONEY" :D

    From rewatching the season, she got off to a slow start, but once Jasmine fucked off she really blossomed. I think she'd totally earned her top 4 place by the end.

    I really love Kennedy's Snatch Game & it still makes me laugh. Those lines that VoR just quoted are hilarious :D

    Plus you get to look at Michael Urie lots which is never a bad thing in my book.

    Oh I got it, I just didn't care for it.

    I like the point both she and Thorgy were making if nothing else though - both those, as well as people like John Travolta, Toni Curtis for a good part of his later years and maybe even Burt Reynolds, basically all drag in some form or other that's usually left unspoken.

    Disagree! I think she deserved to make it there more than Pearl, especially given that she outlipsync'd Katya.

    Kennedy got a LOT of undeserved negativity after the show aired, which I think is quite sad. I really enjoyed her grumpy, shady, unshow-y sense of humour, I think she is a FIERCE entertainer, and in the editing, they really didn't take the chance to show how much of an interesting person she is. She has a lot of heart and sadly, that didn't come across in the episodes.

    Also, I'm sorry, but "After a long night o'hookin..." is one of the greatest Drag Race Runway looks of all time. :D

    Oh that really is marvellous. I'm especially liking the appearance of the talking bin and the multiple ascending Katyas

    Oh the bin. Detox insisting it was more creative than a spray and bit of cellotape after saying she was killing everything really was everything.
