So do we get a Reunion episode after this, or is this the end?
I’m guessing this is the end because next week is season 10.
What. a. load. of. shit.
Seriously agog at that outcome. Clearly it was decided before they even started filming because it was a completely and utterly undeserved victory.
Obviously it shouldn't have been Kennedy given she was in the bottom so much. I don't even like Shangela, but if there was going to be a shocker it should have been Trixie getting knocked out before the lip sync instead of her.
What a flat end to a disappointing season.
Holy shit at Thorgy (of all people!) being the only one to pick Shangela.
Honestly, I stayed up for THAT?
That kind of makes it EVEN WORSE
Although all Shangela's GoT references seem a lot more fitting now.
I mean, didn't they practically all choose Kennedy because she deserved a break/the others had achieved more etc? That's not what being an ALL STAR is.
I repeat, PFFFRT
Well that was the worst twist ever. What an AWFUL winner, what a bunch of bitter queens choosing the worst possible F2.
Oh God. This is like the finale of season 9 but even more unfair.
If Bendela’s exit tarnished the legacy of the winner a bit, this just completed it.
Oh my God!
She was right about feeling like Ned Stark.
What a load of crap!
My rank based on the challenge:
And as much as I don’t think she deserves to even be top 5, Kennedy won that final lipsync.
I hope the show gets cancelled

The thing IS, I prefer Trixie to Shangela (and Ben) as an overall queen, but this is BULLSHIT. They need to stop giving the power to other queens, stop with the dumb twists and go back to Drag Race being a show about talent. Trixie and Kennedy will now face undeserved backlash for something that isn’t their fault, and we ended up with not the front runner, not the runner up, but the THIRD most deserving queen of the season as the winner
Nobody watches this show to be gagged by cheap twists, they watch it to see amazing drag being rewarded!
thrilled with a trixie win but shangela not making the top 2 was utter bull.
as for the rest, i really liked the musical number, the lipsync was shit (i mean what the hell was that song choice about), the queens picking frankfurt international over shangela was shambolic.
just saw the elims' vote. absolutely scandalous, i'm quite disappointed in them bar thorgy and milk, especially in ben cause i really used to like her and expected more from her.
they must really hate shangela i guess.
It's kind of hard to come to any other conclusion, isn't it?
Bendela's 'strategy' really was all over the shop, wasn't it? Oh sorry, I forgot - she's just making up her own rules.
Trixie excels outside Drag Race but that shouldn't make you the winner of DRAG RACE.
Shangela danced the mother fucking house down in that gig and looked her best ever, the fact she finished 4th behind Bebe when she has been the seasons clear winner is BUFFOONERY.
I went from being slayed to gagged to disappointed and mad.
What a DISASTAH
Absolutely not the right winner based on anything we saw this season. Trixie is talented for sure, but utterly unsuited to this competition and barely got above the mediocre mark for the duration.
Lovely to see Kennedy in the Top 2 and I preferred his lip-sync to Trixie's who just gives me nothing during those. But it really should have been a Shangela win.
I don't even mind Kennedy top 2, her final lip sync was pretty darn good.
Trixie however, fuck you doing girl pulling out hair wefts. No.
WINNER WINNER DOG'S DINNER
What a shocker, I was so resigned for a Shangela win that I was mortified when they didn’t pick her.
I guess it’s a personal thing, Kennedy must come off warmer in person versus Shangela.
I feel bad for Shangela cause she was robbed.
I like Trixie and she’s not a bad winner, also she’s already making a name for herself outside the show and this can only help. A better winner than Chad but not as good or deserving as Alaska.
I’m thinking they all probably thought she would get picked by the others anyway and gave Kennedy the sympathy vote, but I’m probably being naive.
That’s how I feel too.
The House of Edward queens keep coming back back back again but they sort of keep getting unfairly treated
I’m disappointed neither of the top two called it out for being bullshit.
Yet more evidence that democracy doesn’t work.
I've only seen a few clips here and there but this was generally my impression
That was so counter-intuitive. A jury made up of the eliminated contestants will inevitably punish the most successful and reward the least offensive.
Kennedy had no place being up there instead of Shangela. She's stiff and humourless.
Trixie is a good winner though, she's likeable. I just don't think likeability and goodwill are more important than talent and I feel like that's what got Trixie the crown.
Meanwhile, "Yeah, I'm pussy bitch" has singlehandedly made me love Bebe.
semi-ot: i really liked the eliminated arseholes' outfits (well sans chi chi i guess).
that might be my favourite ben outift ever. and thorgy.
Thorgy looked fabulous.
Yes I thought Thorgy looked the best of all of them, particularly with the eyewear.
I can't say I remember Bendela's outfit - I just recall red feathers.
I think that was my favourite Ben look too.
Thorgy is such a loud mouth.
I loved that Kennedy was in the top, even if it should have been Shangela statistically. And honestly I think Kennedy probably won the lip sync, but it was blatantly obvious from the edit that Trixie had it in the bag. Kennedy was doing a masterclass in the background but all of the camera's focus was on Trixie.
In retrospect Ben might have made an even smarter decision than first thought by eliminating herself. I don't think that lot would have ever voted for her.
