    This was like watching Sasha take crown , i love it when there is fantastic lipsync and Yvies final lipsync was everything …. IMO she has been the best all season challenge wins be dammed … you need emotion to win a lipsync and she proved that . this is all very similar to Season 9 Cause i feel like Brooke and Shea were the front runners based challenges but then they did solid but not very emotional lip syncs and lost to the more emotional performers… im so happy

    Nice to see Yvie win. Even though I don’t like how she wants to explain how weird she is or what being weird is every-single-time, I think her personality more than covers how unpolished she really is. Not with her final look last night, but this has been an on-going issue with Yvie. She’s a nice winner, but part of me still would’ve liked to see Brook win.

    I think Yvie is definitely a Sasha-type winner. She was just there during the first half and then once the other girls left, she had nowhere to hide and really had to start competing. During the second half she was always present and made herself a top contender.

    Brook definitely fucked up that second lip sync Shea-style. She did nothing relevant and you can even think she let Yvie win after Yvie’s own terrible first lip sync. The whole reveal gag was funny and great, the actual reveal was perfect…but then what? More ballet moves? More splits? She’s better than this. And it showed just minutes before. So what happened?

    I was 10000% sure that they would pair Yvie and Silky. It didn’t happen. Silky did do a nice job, but sloppy as usual in the end. Akeria didn’t do shit in that lip sync and her reveal was meh.

    Imagine Vanjie being in that place with Yvie. Does Vanjie win and earn second place and Brook wins? Because A LOT of people could’ve esily crushed Yvie in that first lip sync.

    Anyway. Yvie killed the final lip sync, her reveal with the face was the perfect reveal and it worked as innovative and cool as Sasha’s was. Props to Brook and her funny mini tiny reveal too.

    The finale in general was dull and those clips lasted forever. I didn’t quite get the girls that came out from previous seasons, specially ‘cause it looked like most of them were from season 10. So it was very confusing. Also, I couldn’t identify many of them.

    Anyway. Glad that this season is over. The show’s worst season to date.

    #TeamYvie! I’m over the moon for Yvie, and for the longest time, I thought that Brook Lynn had this crown easily with the most orchestrated wins and the “look” of a winner. But at the same time, the optics of not having a POC regular season victor since Bob the Drag Queen would have been too much to take. Since the internet overwhelmingly supported Yvie, there you have it. She had the full C.U.N.T. that Brook Lynn just didn’t have. There was that desperation with Brook Lynn’s final lip-sync that was exactly like their round 1 match-up. Every hair twirl, every death drop, and an overly self-conscious “reveal” felt too eager to me. Yvie let the emotional pull of “The Edge of Glory” do its job. And frankly, that stunning head piece reveal is what won Yvie her crown. Absolutely sickening, bitches! I hope no one comes for Yvie setting the precedent of a winner with only one victory to her credit winning over Brook Lynn’s three. At least Sasha had two wins over Shea’s four. Goes to show exactly what the power of an epic lip-sync performance is! Silky not choosing Yvie was utter bullshit, especially when we were promised this lip-sync all season long. It wouldn’t have “mattered” in the end, since Silky and A’Keria were completely interchangeable in the destined Brook Lynn/Yvie final, but still. Silky’s hot mess was no match for Brook Lynn (the pointed shoes reveal was her shining moment of the night), who was better the first time than second time. A’Keria underwhelmed like I knew she would. Vanjie should have been there at least for a better show! Loved all three song choices here.

    Now for the mediocre finale. I think the final four were severely undercut by not walking out with the rest of the cast (the distinction shouldn’t have been made of the “eliminated queens”), and then the exit interviews didn’t go into their sob stories or most memorable season highlights, but instead panning to their loved ones in the audience. That felt like pure filler, but we got to see the genetic brilliance of Yvie’s father, so that’s something, I guess. I know, the reunion covered some of that, but those clip packages were padded for the gods, and I grew tired of them all and fast-forwarded through them. Christine was a genuine highlight with her Ru number and the alums. Vanjie’s segment … totally get why all of that was there, b/c the bitch is a star, but I’d rather seen more of her season journey than a cheap word-on-the-street segment. If that was the direction they were going, it should have been Love Connie doing those street interviews. Yay for Nina West winning Miss Congeniality! It was a fully deserved win. Monét was looking basic as ever SMDH. Compare with Goddess Aquaria, who matched Violet Chachki in exit finale gold, and there is no comparison. Cheap show production values and no “queens in the audience answering questions” segments were disappointing. Ru’s hair and gown were both middling. She’s looked better in numerous runways this season, like that silver dress that should have been worn here. Rocky, messy, but thoroughly entertainTing season 11! Makes up somewhat for the stench of AS4. Reluctantly ready for S12 & AS5!

    Forgot to talk about the other girls.

    I think Plastique killed look. Shuga did a nice job. Nina looked great from the front, but the back was confusing as it didn’t end up that great. Ariel looks much better without the insanely huge wig that always swallows her. This is not Vanjie’s best look, she could’ve done better. Scarlett looked great too.

    Monet X Change came out showing that she was a bullshit winner on All Stars. This is not how you come out after you’ve won a crown. It’s not even what you wear as a returning Miss Congeniality! It was extremely basic, regular looking and exactly the kind of shit that would get you voted out during the season.

    Ru also looked basic as fuck.

    The tribute to Michelle’s breast was fun.
