I guess no Ru Paul in this
So Brooke Lynn is a judge on this, alongside the fabulous Stacey Mackenzie of Canada’s Next Top Model non-fame
Yvie REALLY feels like the first proper misstep as Drag Race winner doesn’t she Even though Yvie definitely won the final lip sync, Brooke feels so much more like the actually winner I often forget Yvie won
I was so over Brooke Lynn by the end. She would have made a dull winner.
Brooke Lynn was always a bit too distant to be a good winner, too polished. Yvie seems to be doing ok, she’s gonna be part of the Vegas residency.
Season 11 never happened, the boot order was insane. Silky and Miss Vanjie in the top 5? Above queens like Nina West? Please I forgot this season already.
Vanjie is probably the most successful queen in a few seasons
Maybe, but that doesn't justify her position in the competition when she was mostly shit, it was always Vanjie being herself in the acting challenges. Grammy winner Serena ChaCha had a succesful career post DR selling wigs, but you have to admit she didn't deserve much more in her season.
I genuinely prefer Vanjie out of drag to in
Yvie was a little "crafty" for my taste, but Brooke made the cardinal sin of a lip sync finale with no gimmicks (#gasp).
It wasn't only no gimmicks though - it was more the fact that she didn't bring anything new from her previous lip syncs. And I felt like all her jumps and twirls didn't really bear any relation to the music.
She had such a poor edit those last couple of shows though that I'm not sure what she would have had to have done to have won, anyway.
Oh I can't remember the sync, but those slot-machine edits really do contradict the parody premise of the show itself.
