    It does matter b/c it changes the entire game moving forward. Whatever. Agree to disagree and moving on.

    I think for next season they need to fix the lighting and not have the runways be so pink… they need to bring back the mini challenges and add some more fun back into the game ..

    and i think they need to figure out how to not have any spoilers leak for the finale.

    I also see now why Shea was as salty as she was in the reunion special. I couldn’t figure it out since she wasn’t like that before and was gracious all season long. But filming the reunion after all that went down in the finale explains everything (another reason of how ridiculous it is not to do the finale live), and I can’t fault her for it. She lost the lip sync fair and square to Sasha, but the lead up to that battle leaves a bad aftertaste.

    yea they should have at least done the reunion before taping the finale

    The problem with this finale is that you’re basically telling us that in episode 1 of the season, you could’ve brought in the spinning wheel, choose partners, lip sync and if you’re great you win. The entire season was sort of worthless. Call it RuPaul’s Lipsync Battle then.

    You don’t pick a winner based only on a finale, much less a tiny part like a lip sync that looks fucking rigged anyway. You build up a finale with an entire season of challenges for the queens, so you have to make the entire season count too. This spinning wheel told Shea to fuck off, that nobody cares about anything she’s done for 10, 13 weeks, however many weeks the season had. Same for Trinity and Sasha, even though she ended up as the winner.

    I’m also not that happy with those song selections, by the way, forgot to mention that before.

    And I didn’t know that the reunion was filmed after the finale, it does explain Shea’s attitude which wasn’t very nice.

    And YES!, motherfucking YESSSSSS! the finale should be live by now.

    ^^^Thank you! All of this! Though personally I was living for the 1-2 Whitney realness here, which also gave us this instantly iconic moment in show herstory now and forever:

    I’ll give this bitch all the credit in the world for understanding the venue she was in better than her three competing queens. Supposedly, Sasha had another stunt prepared with her leg if she had to lip sync to “Stronger.” So smart and poised throughout. Future queens will follow her lead and bring the drama now in this all-important game changer twist, for better or worse.

    i dont think that the wheel negated what happened in the show … i think all four girls were equally poised to win. yes shea was the front runner and i think that if Peppermint had won it might have had more of a sting … But i think that Sasha , trinty and Shea were all equal imo ….

    i think at the end of the day ru picked the same person she would have picked no matter what she did for the finale …

    Yea she said she had scissors on her thigh to cut apart her wig if she had gotten stronger.

    In any other season, the top three would have been Shea Coulee, Sasha Velour, and Trinity Taylor. They wouldn’t have had an equal chance of winning or on “equal footing.” It would have been an easy victory for Shea. And that spinning wheel nonsense is BS. There has to be a better way to do that moving forward worn the final lip syncs, and it’s not that. It was cheap and completely out of place.

    i maintain that even if they had a final three and a traditional finale rupaul was going to pick Sasha … that finale had nothing to do with who won. she picked the winner she wanted regardless .

    Why would rupaul not pick the exact person she wants to win … if she wanted Shea to win she would have picked her … Shea wasn’t picked because rupaul didn’t want her to win plain and simple.

    Shea would have won her heat had she done better than Sasha. Same goes for Trinity over Peppermint. Beyond that, who’s to say? That’s what it hinges on now, a final lip sync, and it isn’t right.

    I disagree … Rupaul has picked many a worse lipsync to stay before … she always picks who she wants not who is alwasy the best … Trixie was better than pearl and Pearl stayed becasue ru wanted her to.. This show has always and will always be about who rupaul wants … yes they have to preform to a certain level to make it but at the end of the day she makes the choice

    No need to continue this further. My opinion isn’t changing on the subject.
