    Sad to see Vanjie go home. The editing steered us toward A’Keria, who struggled with both the rap verse and Todrick’s choreography. It was her time to go home, and personally, I’m done with her from a viewer’s perspective. I’m bored with the pageantry runways and constantly stirring the pot in sew room. I will give her props for the cops challenge in showing unforeseen comedic chops, but yeah, condragulations on fourth place. Silky’s messiness is inexcusable at this point, and even if personality gets you farther than it should in this completion, for it to work in Silky’s favor and not for Vanjie’s is pretty depressing. TPTB’s orchestrations to get Brook Lynn and Vanjie in the bottom two was deplorable. Like, save it for the finale? I know it’s the third bottom placement for her, but damn. The judges stacked the deck shamelessly tonight. Ridiculous! All the puppet strings are within clear view! Yvie has never looked more refined and elegantly bizarre, and that verse with the backwards spiderwalk was one of the most sickening things I’ve ever seen in my fucking lifeee, bitches! She should have been declared the winner outright to match Brook Lynn’s three season wins. But whatever. Top two SHOULD BE between Brook Lynn and Yvie, point blank. I hope we get that for the final rematch in the Lip Sync Wheel o’ Death, though it seems like novel pairings are preferred now. Expect to see Yvie gone in the first round to Brook Lynn, and then handed an easy victory going against A’Keria or Silky. Vanjie would have been such a riot. Hope she gets a prominent segment all her own! Kudos for stealing the show again with another memorable exit! That’s how you slay it and ensure yourself a thriving career regardless of a crown. “All-Stars” will be an easy get for Miss Vanjie now.

    Yvie should have been given a win for this last episode and that would have given Yvie two wins.

    The final four are all over the place.

    Brooklyn has 3 wins and 2 bottoms
    Silky has 2 wins and 1 bottom
    Akeria has 2 wins and 2 bottoms
    Yvie has 1 win and 1 bottom

    I am team Yvie

    I think the producers are stupid and shady enough to throw a Brooklyn vs Yvie lipsync for the first round., but they were so desperate to pair Brooke and Vanjie in this episode that I just have to assume (I haven’t seen spoilers) that their next forced lip sync will be Yvie vs Silky. So that would automatically leave us with Yvie vs Brooke as the final 2 lip sync.

    I now have a feeling that Yvie could win. She’s great, even if she’s missing something, like everybody this season. But Brooke really is the deserving winner. But I can imagine a Jinxx situation where Yvie does end up winning.

    I can’t say it enough. Vanjie deserved to be in the finale. She will end up being in every episode, sure, but the show owes her big time for saving the season, which is something they could’ve seen even during production. So why not honor her (yes, I said “honor”) by having her in the finale instead of Akeria? It’s bullshit.

    Okay I’m a bit late here but better late than never I guess. Okay here goes.

    I’m still #teamYvie so this made me so happy and after her struggles recently reminded me why I love her so much. She’s weird and brimming with personality but she can also absolutely turn a look. Ru didn’t declare a winner this episode but it’s kinda obvious that if she had it would’ve been Yvie so in the tables I’m gonna leave her with 2 wins = with A’keria and Silky and behind Brooke’s 3. Her lyrics were by far the best as was her look and her performance was super fun and polished!

    As for the rest, well, I’ll start with looks. Category is best drag… Or whatever you still have in your closet drag judging by the runways. Vanjie’s look was good and it made sense but it wasn’t best drag it was a pretty dress and not much else. Brooke’s was decent but one of her lesser looks this season – she always looks great so just being pretty good means it’s not best drag. And it wasn’t very unique. Silky, okay, yeah this was great for her, which isn’t a big compliment
    because really all I’m saying it was a finished, polished look. A very low bar to meet but that’s where Silky is at. A’keria looked like her regular pagent girl self, it’s not screaming “best” but it’s fine. It is very polished and pretty. Yvie was the only look that I was really amazed by.

    In the challenge Vanjie deserved her bottom spot, you could tell she was in her head and it sucks because I love Vanjie but she didn’t turn it. Brooke on the other hand shows just how shitty the producers are sometimes – she turned it and had the most impressive choreography of all of them. Her lyrics weren’t very rappy but they were fun and made me laugh. I would’ve given her the win performance wise (second overall because of her look and lyrics) but she had to be in the bottom because of the narrative. Something I really hate about this show sometimes. A’keria was fine, kinda basic and she didn’t really have to do any moves and her lyrics were pretty forgettable but fine. Silky had all the same problems with polish she’s had the last few weeks in the challenge but the judges only kinda briefly mentioned it because they wanted a Brooke – Vanjie lip sync.

    This week’s rankings: Yvie, Brooke, A’keria, Silky, Vanjie.

    Well onto the finale. Honestly only Yvie and Brooke are, I believe, at the level of a finale. A’keria has kinda drifted by on pagenty good enough this entire time and Silky is not polished enough. But I don’t know who I would replace them with, Nina maybe? But her lip sync performance was really bad… I’d love to say Vanjie and she’d kill a finale lip sync but she’s just had too many chances. Anyway because the producers are so fond of themselves we will get an Yvie v Silky lipsync in the finale then the final lipsync will be Yvie v Brooke where they both survived in their last lipsync now there has to be a winner. I really do wish this show wasn’t so overproduced sometimes! Maybe this won’t be what happens and I’ll be surprised but I doubt it. I still think Brooke is most likely to win and I’d be happy with that, I really like both Brooke and Yvie, but I remain team Yvie. Let’s go.

    So for interest I went through and computed a score for each finale Queen for the season computed by the sum of every week where bottom 2 = 0pts, other bottom = 1pt, safe = 2 pts, top = 3 pts, win = 4pts.

    In the last episode Ru ordered the Queens but didn’t explicitly put them in top or bottom. I decided none were safe so Yvie wo
    n, A’keria top, Silky low and obviously bottom 2. That is the order they were in so it was really just about deciding who is where – Yvie and the bottom 2 are obvious but the other 2 could’ve both been safe but I figured it’s best just not to categorise anyone as safe this last episode.

    Anyway with that in mind:
    In first place is Brooke with 31
    Second Yvie with 30
    Third is A’keria with 27
    Finally we have Silky in 26

    If I were to say Silky, A’keria and Yvie were all safe this episode not much changed order wise it’s just a swap in the bottom 2:
    Brooke 31
    Yvie 28
    Silky 27
    A’keria 26

    Looking at recent seasons this is pretty accurate – Tyra, Needles and Jinkx, Aquaria, Bianca and Violet were best on their tables.

    Out of 10 seasons this missed 4 times and all of them the winner was in second place and there was only 1 point in it every time: Sasha was second after Shea, Bob was second to Kim Chi, Raja was second to Manila and Bebe was second to Nina.

    I think this will hold true again and Brooke will win but Yvie has a small outside chance. She is within 1 pt so the rule that they have all been top 2 and that if 2nd wins they are within 1 pt of first holds if she wins. Let’s see how it goes!

    i think That Yvie and Brooke are the only two who should win , i would not be horribly mad if Akeria wins as i think she is at least polished and put together . Silky is a mess and should have gone home instead of Suga and then Vanjie/ Nina could have been in the finale .

    But i am fully team Yvie

    Yvie for the win in two weeks

    well, so that happened

    for the most dramatic recent season this reunion sure was tame, it felt like ru was specifically trying not not to let things go too intense, usually she’s the biggest pop stirrer but tonight she clearly tried to cut down on the drama, maybe it’s ptsd from the whole vixen debacle.

    the big players toned themselves down too much, brooke sort of came forward but not in a way that puts her in a positive light, plastique was bout to go full aja and out akeria on her bs but ru cut her off, scarlet had one cute moment clapping back at rajah and didn’t do much for the rest, rajah delivered the expected and then everyone else was barely there, oh and kahanna said some shit that may or may not matter. I thought soju was gonna go in on silky’s racist remarks in the reading challenge but that either got cut or got interrupted by ru

    looking back I’m shocked by how much I genuinely loved this season at the beginning, I guess I was happy with the rawness and that sense of reality tv parody that was similar to the early seasons, but as it went along the caliber of drag presented by these girls just doesn’t measure up anymore. still I find the vast majority of this cast to be interesting and several of them would make fantastic all-stars contestants

    I tried to look at how the top 4 behaved to see if there is any indication who made top 2.

    Okay reunion. I’ve seen better and more explosive ones previously. Lots of trivialities like Wiggate and such. Ru did seem to shut down convos, but some of them were going in circles, and the bills have to be paid somehow. I also looked for clues at the finale and didn’t find any. They all are taped winning, so they won’t know the winner until the rest of us. There was one telling line in the Yvie/Silky section where Ru said something like, “the both of you are true superstars, and no one can take that away from you.” Sounded consolation-y to me, like, “sorry I had to pick Brook Lynn, but you’re all winners!” Wish they did Miss Congeniality here, but a bigger deal of it can be made on the finale.
