    omg I thought the same!
    Can’t they just do it again? Or to make it more shocking a triple win with ... oh never mind

    I thought “oh I got Shea’s runway” but actually it was only the Carrie that I noticed, she had explained the back story before I had a chance to see it.

    I realised Raja already did Carrie didn’t she?

    i was actually going to say “unless they are actually looking for a ridiculous Manila/Shangela type exit for the drama instead” but forgot :D

    Up until now I've been pleased that Shea hasn't been steam-rolling the competition like she was expected to, as I wanted an open field. But that lipsync to Open Your Heart single-handedly won the season. They just can't give the win to anyone else after that performance.

    Who knew AllStars 5 would end with India being the 3rd most memorable contestant from it, after the Juju/Shea top two.

    After that little performance, "you are, and forever will be, an AllStar". :disco:

    I really must have been watching a different lip sync to Open Your Heart...

    I meant to say, I agree with you VoR in terms of it being almost identical to what she did with So Emotional

    well.. the editing served us crickets yes. I couldn’t even finish watching at that point, the editing was driving me up the wall. The producers obviously don’t want any of us to have opinions of our own. EVERYTHING Alexis said was accompanied by howling from Ru and EVERYTHING the other two said was accompanied by a ‘clunking’ sound effect. Why can’t they let us think for ourselves?

    Thank God for Jujubee’s performance As Eartha Kitt. Perfection.

    Pretty much over this series. I really hope Shea doesn’t win actually - I think Jujubee has consistently entertained me a lot more.

    It was ridiculous. I'd love to see some raw footage from a Snatch Game some time.

    I have never had to stop an episode of Ru Paul halfway out of irritation before. The second half of the episode was better, but it certainly didn’t feel like the classic some of you are saying.

    The India-Alexis drama was... ok. But felt obvious India was going to go still.

    Jujubee is just the saving grace of the season by a mile.

    As much as I love Shea, I was hoping for Detox AS2 levels of runway. And Love The Skin You're In aside, she isn't bringing it.

    I’ve discovered that some good angels on YouTube make videos of how easily these performances are edited for an agenda

    I love that Detox's AS2 runways get the reverence they deserve on here. I thought that they had been overlooked at the time, with all the (deserved) adoration having been thrown towards Alaska and Katya.

    I was cackling at this bit. How to make something mundane absolutely hilarious. She should have won!

    Shea’s Snatch Game could have SO EASILY been edited to be in the bottom for this ep with a bit of shifty editing

    For a season that arguably has the weakest cast of all All Stars, it's certainly doing better than AS4 and potentially even AS3

    Alexis Mateo was simply made for TV.

    She's proved to be strong enough to wipe out her petty All Stars 1 outing, but she's still a lovely 2nd runner up.

    Vanjie is a bit overdone now but her saying 'Open your legs to me' at the end made me :D

    I hated the double-crowning. And Manila's elimination was awful. Also, Latrice's disappointing performance overall.

    The double crowning aside, it was a great cast and had lots of iconic moments.

    Agreed, AS4 made me so angry. It's just wrong that Manila didn't win it. And the way the winners were chosen was awful. The winners themselves seemed to be chosen at random.

    My main problem with AS4 was the lack of respect given to Miss Monique Heart by the judges :argh:

    I forgot Vanjie :D
    I don’t think she’s a lipsync assassin just because she survived so many, that was narratively convenient (poor Shuga).

    It was like she was lip syncing for her life rather than her legacy. Nice of her to pay tribute to the Snatch Game episode by coming as that “catch me outside” girl again

    How Vanjie was ever considered a lip sync assassin or why she KEEPS FUCKING COMING BACK is beyond me.

    Poor Alexis’ haunted face when she watched that lip-sync has troubled me all day.

    ALEXIS FTW.

    The fact she had that video produced (presumably at some cost) and ready to go makes me think she's been anticipating a negative reaction to her Snatch Game ever since the episode was filmed. Given that it was just a bit of a damp squib rather than a disaster, I'm now wondering if there was some REAL lead balloon stuff in there and she actually got a pretty kind edit :eyes:

    Yeah she’s really overestimated the impact of it :D

    The video is... completely pointless and bad

    It IS Cracker, though. She'd obsess over it being awful if it wasn't great.

    Oh god you guys :D

    overestimated the impact? It’s all some of you have been able to talk about! (For the fifth week running)

    did I miss something really evil she did, because people are going out of their way to get her this season

    I guess that’s fans/the internet/Moopy/gays for you

    It’s the claims that she’s some sort of comedy genius that baffle me
