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.May 18, 2019 at 7:59 am #1202898594
The optics of the white gurl winning over three black ones … good luck with that one on Twitter, WOW.May 18, 2019 at 9:56 pm #1202899123
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.May 19, 2019 at 2:13 pm #1202900076
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:
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!May 20, 2019 at 6:16 am #1202901021
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

the only available preview/trailer so far, god help us if they’re gonna focus on the pointless wig gate instead of all the real drama that happened this seasonMay 23, 2019 at 5:46 am #1202905536
Episode Title: “Reunited”
Synopsis: One episode away from the Grand Finale, the fabulous queens of season 11 return to discuss the season’s gaggiest moments.
Discuss.May 23, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1202906454
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 contestantsMay 23, 2019 at 8:06 pm #1202906456
I tried to look at how the top 4 behaved to see if there is any indication who made top 2.May 24, 2019 at 7:35 am #1202906866
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.May 24, 2019 at 9:39 am #1202907029
Did they record all four winning ? or just two winning ?

at least three queens have been found cancelling gigs scheduled for mid june due to “filming commitments”, AS5 on the wayMay 25, 2019 at 11:56 am #1202910379
The reunion just proves once again, that Vanjie owned the season. Ru spent half the reunion talking to or about Vanjie. It even ended with her “singing”.
Ru is so far up Silky’s ass, that we barely got to see any clips of her being annoying, which is gonna be remembered as one of the main points of the season: everybody hates Silky. They tried to cover it with Yvie’s fights with her, but it wasn’t enough.
The discussion about Plastique, Ariel and Soju was annoying as fuck. It just shows how terrible the casting was. They got 3 useless girls (Kahana, Mercedes and Honey) which is normal for any season, but then they bring in 3 other girls with no performing experience, just some fake instagram girls, so that makes 6 terrible queens. Add Scarlett, Shuga and Raja and you have over half the queens being at some level of terrible or uninteresting. We also have to deal with Silky’s personality. Then you have Akeria who is just an average queen when it comes to television. What the fuck with this casting?
And am I the only one who remembers the shitty reading challenge? Who allows these queens to read again on television? It was just as awful the second time. (Nina’s was kind of funny).
