    What a mess of an episode. The producers really do make some strange decisions sometimes, why would they not make Alyssa safe and have Rolaskatox FORCED into a dramatic elimination? Did Alyssa even get any bad critiques? Has there ever been a more unfair result?

    1. Katya, Katya, Katya forever and ever
    2. Detox (the most visually stunning queen left)
    3. Alaska ("I still cry when I don't get my way" was such wonderful foreshadowing)
    4. Roxxxy

    As someone said before, the winners of this season are Katya, Tatianna and Alyssa, who have all no doubt expanded their fanbases considerably. The biggest loser in my view* is Alaska - she'll probably win the actual crown, but I feel her brand has actually been hurt by returning to the show.

    *Phi Phi was already a loser

    Wow that was an uncomfortable episode. Whoever said earlier that they're doing Roxxxy more harm than good by keeping her is absolutely right. It's humiliating to be in the final purely because you have friends, and she's otherwise come off really well in her behaviour, so she really didn't need it.

    Alaska's meltdown - yikes.

    I utterly fell in love with Alyssa Edwards this episode. Sheer class.

    3. Detox
    4. Roxxxy

    Detox posted a video on Instagram with Alyssa about the decision and to STAY TUNED for the reunion where ALL WILL (not) BE RUVEALED

    Sorry, but you are a terrible judge of character if this is how you describe Katya. Katya's appeal is her twisted sense of humour lying underneath a genuine vulnerability. I feel like we've seen this season through Katya's eyes for some reason; in any case it certainly feels like she's narrated it with the number of talking head moments she's had.

    Obviously the wrong decision again, and Detox has shot herself in the foot for a surprise win. Nobody likes a clique, and yet here we are again.

    If they do take Twitter support into consideration then Katya has 8 times as many of the votes of the others combined...

    :D QUITE! I don't get that from her AT ALL

    Incidentally, there's a really great interview with Katya by Tom and Lorenzo. Fair bit of pre-interview blather about Project Runway but just nip to the kitchen to whip up some blinis and down half a bottle of Russian Standard while that's on

    :D @ Katya being secretly arrogant and mean.

    Truly the most likable queen since Jinkx Monsoon.

    And this was her episode. She and her wonderful mum made it and I'm so glad she's come around after those two dodgy weeks like some of us knew she would. The lip synching isn't GREAT but who cares.

    Alaska's meltdown though. :manson: Cheer up!

    You know you're in trouble when Roxxxy and Detox come off better than you.

    FUCKING FUCK OFF ROLODEX :manson:

    If someone's coming out as a winner this season, then it's anyone isn't one of these three. I mean Alyssa and Katya were already fan favourites, but after this it's absolutely no surprise if the show's audience is firmly in the Katya camp in the final. And I'm not sure how they're going to deal with that if they absolutely want to give Alaska the title.

    She really can do no wrong, can she? Every situation thrown at her has been handled so well. What a fucking QUEEN of EVERYTHING!

    The interview is excellent, what an amazing creature.

    Although the fact that they already filmed the reunion means that they already had a winner, I guess? Which means Alska has got it.

    I'm sure that, as always, they've filmed each finalist winning.

    She really is so glorious. I'm just so impressed with the way she handles everything and doesn't even MENTION the injustice of it all, let alone complain about it. I know I'm fangirling a bit, but she really is a bit of an INSPIRATION in that regard.

    I suspect that part of it is that she knows and is comfortable with her limitations, knows she has a great career outside of the competition that will only be enhanced by this stint on the show and is old enough to just enjoy it for what it is. I'll definitely be going to see her live at the next opportunity - she's made a proper fan in me this season.

    :D:disco::D Where can I find the original video of the wig being yanked off?

    Highlight after fabulous highlight and truly inspired, but for some reason the inclusion (and abrupt ending) of Coco's crappy routine is particularly :D

    Alyssa is right up there with Princess Diana, Cher and Mother Teresa. Who'd have thunk it, that under all the madness was such a decent and mature person? I love her more than ever.

    Absolutely loved the Surprise Surprise style family reunions at the start. Wept like a girl for the first 10 minutes or so. Katya's mum especially was brilliant and I thought she looked amazing in the Vogue-off!

    I was absolutely floored that they didn't pit Rolaskatox against each other in the bottom 3. I was especially furious because I wanted Alyssa to go as far as possible but I'd started to like Detox after previously not being keen during season 5. I think they need a Daesh style nickname - I can't cope with Rolaskatox anymore.
