    She doesn't say a thing herself about everyone else's work so much as pointing out when they've been critiqued by the people who do have the authority to judge?

    And implies that it's also her opinion. Either way it's annoying and nobody wants to hear it and you can read it in all of their faces every time she starts speaking.

    Annoying annoying annoying.

    I mean, given she's the fan favourite I'd guess plenty of people do want to hear it, even if a few utterly deluded queens don't? :D

    This is surely not the worst season but I've lost all interest for the first time and I couldn't care less who wins. Not sure why. :gross:

    The show has just reached saturation point

    Where before it used to be must see, I tune in more now out of habit than anything else, although I don’t think this season has been bad at all

    I think that's essentially it. There was a break of ONE WEEK between AS4 and S11, wasn't there? That's 23 episodes in the last 24 weeks! It hardly gives you a chance to anticipate it.

    I really hope DRUK brings something else to the table.

    Yeah they really need to split it so there’s a 6 month break between All Stars and the normal seasons.

    They always lose steam at the end, too. There's still a possibility that a fabulous finale will redeem this one.

    There were just too many queens this season. Or we should have had at least two double sashays.

    That’s true. Especially if the season relies on drama (which this one really does) and they all make up towards the end.

    Season 5 is truly the only season that consistently rose in excitement to the end. The tension just built and built until Roxxxy exploded in the final two episodes (the actual finale doesn't count).

    All the others kind of fizzle out by the makeover challenge and get a bit too lovey, although some did this better than others. And to be fair Season 9 was another season that got better towards the end and was kinda vindicated especially by Sasha's lip sync.

    Literally watching the reunion and I said more than once ‘who is she?’

    I’ll put that down to the cast being too big rather than age

    Brook came across as truly rotten in this! What a vile cunt.

    I'm sure they were encouraged to keep the public guessing on Branjie as it would be much less of a story if everyone knew it was already over, but yes with that and the Scarlett Envy business she did not come across well. Considering she's been portrayed at times as accomplished but robotic and uninteresting throughout the season, repeating it for the reunion doesn't look good ahead of the finale.

    And with A'Keria not coming across well either and Silky getting strangely little attention, it does feel to me like it's being set up for an Yvie win.

    I thought Brooke came off well, I never felt that they used their relationship and it felt genuine.

    Poor Scarlet though.

    A’keria came off the worst out of the top 4.

    I loved what Silky was wearing but the way she was sitting was :D

    Ru defending Yvie was interesting.

    Yvie's look and make-up were fab, and Nina reading Soju was fun too :D

    This reunion was fine, but obviously not a patch on last season's (aka Asia O'Hara's Drag Race :disco:)

    Aquaria said on this weeks Fashion Photo Ruview that they film the reunion episode after they’ve filmed the finale. I guess even with the multiple outcomes being filmed there are 2 of the 4 who know it isn’t them.

    Reading body language Akera and Brooke looked pretty happy.

    Iiiif that’s true, then I’m assuming the Yvie/Brooke lip sync happened first rather than second. Hope it came second though
