Thoughts on this week's episode

Spoiler: show
I knew as soon as 'And I Am Telling You' started playing that Chi Chi would stay. No denying she won that lip sync but it's a real shame since Thorgy has done consistently better throughout the competition and (unknown to Ru at the time) has proved a fan favourite this season. You can tell they were trying to cover their tracks by giving Thorgy a shady edit this week.

It's a shame they pointlessly brought Naysha back for 2 episodes when they could of had both Thorgy and Chi Chi stay this week instead.

Derrick Berry is so much better when he doesn't take himself too seriously. He did a real turn around this week as before the episode most people thought he'd be going home.

If you're a bitch in the competition, it's going to come across on the show. If you're competitive and in your head, like Thorgy was, it shows, and she said the things to back that up. Seeing her "t" on social media tries to negate the way she acted within the competition like it's all fake, and that's annoying. It's tiring to hear queens blame their behavior on the edit - It'd be much more refreshing to hear queens say "the competition is stressful and it brought out the best/worst in me" - and let it be. I do think people take the show a little too seriously - and while it's a competition, it's also a reality competition show - about drag queens, it's always poked fun of reality conventions and made fun of them, which is an extension of what drag is supposed to be.

Anyway, I will say Thorgy was someone I pegged in the top 3 early on, and I was surprised to see her go - however, she really bombed that challenge, and Chi Chi killed that lipsync.
Innit sad that you can't just turn the computer off?

^ I agree Mike. I was betting Throgy being top 3.

I can honestly say, this season has been one of the best ones in a while. Other seasons, I've predicted who might win or be top 3, but this season is full of really great queens.

Last week's episode was amazing! I loved Kim's and ChiChi's looks, both should've won. Bob killed that lipsync (and I didn't think she had to be in the bottom). I was rooting for Britney Derrick, but his 3 outfits were terrible, I only enjoyed seeing him scalp Naomi (and then making up and Naomi trying to help her)

They did an awesome casting job this year. Most of them are awesome, and I love that the ones that have been bad, have at least been entertaining *coughderrickandcynthia*. I also love how unpredictable everything is. I thought both Acid Betty and Thorgy would last a lot longer.

I have a feeling that Bob is going to win, but Kim Chi is my favourite. I love everything about him.

Agreed. Except I'm worried about Kim since she can't dance and it's the music video challenge... it would be such a shame if she didn't make top 3 she's so great.

Naomi is so basic, some times I root for her, but she shouldn't be in the top 3... and I have my doubts about Bob too. Kim and ChiChi are great!

^ I was sure ChiChi would take the crown, she's grown so much and shown a lot of versatility, but now that she's gone I hope Kim wins

Among the top 3, won the one I wanted, but I would have prefered to have as queen a couple of the eliminated (we all know Thorgy and Acid Betty were strong for this).
I lovedso much the intro and the clown stuff as well as Bianca mocking about it. :p

I support this comment. I was more mad at the fact I found out seconds after it aired on the east coast. But I'm happy with who won. And seeing her reaction on the Logo's site, made it even more special. It was a genuine surprised reaction.

This has been the first top 3, that I wasn't picky with who won. Any one of them could have won this. So far, this was the best season. It's a shame it was so short lived.

The finale (and the whole season really) was so much better than the mess that was last years. The opening skit and the final 3 performances were flawless. Kim Chi broke me when she made that joke about the Pit Crew.

I was happy with who won, she delivered looks and talent throughout the competition.

I think overall the shorter season wasn't a bad idea, it kept things fast paced and caused some shocking eliminations.

A couple of odd questions:

1) What is / are your favorite quote and catchphrases of this season?
2) Now that this season is over...what is your ranking of the best and worst seasons in RPDR history?


Here's my opinions:

1) I loved on episode 1 when Robbie Turner said "I'm going to tell you a story about flats.....No!"
I actually use that one every now and then when needed :p

2) Considering the production, the quality of the queens, the shade done and the performances, I think it goes something like this....
Season 5
Season 6
Season 4
Season 8
Season 3
Season - All Stars 1
Season 2
Season 1
Season 7

The season 9 premiere party was held last night. The twist for this season...
Spoiler: show
NO ONE GETS SENT HOME. Those were mama Ru's words exactly.


It premieres on March 24th on VH1 and will have repeats on logo.

Interesting... Do you think she was being facetious though?

She has to narrow them down though, how else do you get a winner... perhaps they stay behind and get a say in who joins them... who keeps going?

I have a feeling they might o the All Stars 2 thing - they won't get sent home but eliminated and at some point, either Ru and another queen will vote them in. CuCu Cynthia is rumored/confirmed to be in this season. Maybe she plays a part in the twist?

Spoiler: show
I saw that about Cynthia. Maybe she's a wildcard of some sort? I don't remember the fine points - but she got cancer or something right after she left her season? Perhaps Rupaul felt inspired to give her a second chance given that situation? Who knows... but a network move, I'm expecting some big changes to the show - when Tyra moved networks there were big changes to the format of ANTM, so I suspect VH1 would want to spice things up a bit.
