We just got finished watching the finale and reunion show of RuPaul's Drag Race
Honestly, we thought she pretty much had it sewn up once Ongina left, and we're pleased. Nina was fierce, but I don't think she had the aesthetic to pull off being an American-accessible drag queen. Rebecca really let it all fall apart at the end, and by the end of the finale I had gone from rooting for her to pretty much deciding that she'd pulled the "I'm not a bitch, I'm just misunderstood" card one too many times, so oh well. I loved how Ru just took her right out of the running and let it get down to the final 2.
The reunion was fun. Ongina is just adorable. I like Jade, but I don't really see anything special about her (I appreciated seeing her have it out with Rebecca and then get over it so kindly). We were both kind of surprised at how bitter Tammy was (but I still love her). Victoria is just a big mushy sweetheart. I think Akashia just needs a big hug and someone to tell her she doesn't have to be angry anymore. I think Santino was out of line calling Shannel cheap, because she is Vegas showgirl glam. We both especially loved watching Ru's Tyra-inspired (yet overwhelmingly positive) meltdown.
All in all I thought it was a great, upbeat show, and I'm glad they're bringing it back for another season. We're going to see if we can find out where Bebe's playing during pride season and go see her if we can. I wish some of the girls lived closer so we could go see them, but the closest is Victoria in Raleigh.
