    An ”All Fat” season with all super sized villains would be rather entertaining.

    Ru's MEH was a season highlight.

    Terrible lip sync. Diabolical result. Still I look forward to a polished Nina West in All Stars. Surely Miss Congeniality?

    Silky is a car crash queen and her time was up. Fuck the drama, it's end game, that ship has sailed.

    Obviously a Vanjie win would have satisfied the narrative, but Brooke was better. STUNNING in fact. As ever.

    This remains the best season for a GOOD FEW YEARS.

    This season has quite a few queens I'd like to see again in All Stars, for various reasons.

    Still don't need another season of that until 2021, though.

    How is your scoring system going @Ag? Surely Brooke Lynn must be clear ahead now

    1. Brooke (8)
    2. A'Keira (3)
    =3 Yvie (2)
    =3 Silky (2)
    5. Vanjie (-3)

    If Brooke loses it will be a fucking travesty. Hopefully Vanjie will get some comfort from bottoming for the winner.

    My god it is going to look dreadful when a white queen beats an all-QoC final AGAIN :D

    OMG was going to post this exact same thing. This time it’s truly deserved though. Having said that, Brook Lynn as a person bores the fuck out of me. She’s got that (sorry to any Canadians) horrible blandness of personality that so many Canadians have. When she said ‘I’m a nice person’ I was like yes... ‘nice’. But objectively she’s been the strongest queen.

    I don’t think No Scrubs was a bad choice of lip sync at all but man those two killed it dead. It just needed a bit of sass and it could have been a hit. Neither of them had it.

    Shocked Vanjie didn’t win, especially as we’d all had her down for the ‘win then be eliminated’ storyline.

    Also don’t think it was fair for them to say to Silky, ‘see this is how you make an Asian look like your sister’. Big difference between black/Asian combo and white/Asian combo.

    Oh finally: that other Davenport looked FINE with a beard. He should keep it and do Conchita style drag forever.

    Why didn’t Akeria bother padding Honey? Did that family trait skip a generation? It was like an empty ketchup and a full mustard.

    Brooke is definitely the best, but yeah, I can’t say I’m particularly excited, I supposed it’s the same as with Plastique, I was excited to see what she would walk the runway with, but just because it was going to be GOOD, not because it was going to be surprising.

    Still, queens have won for less. I mean there was no guarantee Monet would wear anything good :D

    Monet is probably the worst winner ever. I still wish they'd given it to Monique over her, if they had to make a point of giving a non-white queen the win.

    Naomi is my winner. Most of the season’s highlights were delivered by her.

    Monet is really the worst winner, and Monique wouldn’t have been that much better.

    The result of All stars 4 really remains a low point (and given some of the fuckery of previous seasons, that’s really saying something)

    I mean the result is one thing I didn’t agree with, but that laughable mess they made of trying to edit it like it wasn’t decided months after filming...

    Tbh I wish they didn’t have to film multiple endings, they never look convincing as reactions

    I hate it too, but most people* don’t even know they film several endings and don’t seem to notice anything manufactured.

    I can make my peace with filming multiple endings, I just wish they’d have gone for an result that they’d actually filmed

    When did they start filming the multiple endings? I assume it was when they started doing the finale in front of an audience. Was that S4?

    I have a sneaking suspicion Ru would be absolutely disastrous in a live TV setting these days.

    They could do the actual ruveal live and pre record the rest on the same day.

    Considering Jinkx has said how Alaska threw a complete hissy fit when she won (and Alaska has admitted it), I feel we were particularly robbed that year.

    taping three winners is just an extension of how manufactured the show it and, yes, all stars 4 was really taking the piss.

    like rs, i'm pretty sure most people have no idea this is a thing. which certainly explains a lot about the world we live in.

    It feels like AS4 was the first time the winner(s) was manufactured due to public response, though. Before that, the “right” person has mostly won...

    Nina and the other one coming out like two glazed hanging hams on a factory line was life itself. Even the combo pack of Silky and Soju gave me more than the pair that seemed to have one of the pit crew in them. I really don't care for the stretchy denim thing whose bag of tricks include a remote control car, but having Silky's bubble, bladder or cyst burst in a lip sync against her would probably have given us the best parting words since Gia's "yes I am a little bit bitter" tirade from season 6. Michelle can still rot. Wanda to replace her until Merle finishes her latest ghostwriting gig.
