Hey, dolls! It’s poll time!

Poll #1837885 Reunion and Coronation - The Polls


Mama Ru FINALLY got it right.
It wasn't Phi Phi so... I'm happy.
Chad should have won the crown.
Phi Phi Should have won the crown.

The opening number was...

So cute! It was fun to see them werk the stage.
A mess. I caught more than one mistake.
With more time it could have been better.
Meh, I could have done without it.

What Willam did was...

A total set up by Logo for publicity.


Yes, I've used it. And I ain't gonna RuPaulogize for it either.
Man, William's wit is awesome.
Just what this show needs... another catch phrase.
I will be buying this on iTunes next month.

Phi Phi O'Hara...

Really realized how shady she was after seeing the show.
Knew how shady she was during the show.
Deserved her comeuppance.

Did you misunderstand Milan's "artistry"?

You're kidding right?
Why, YES! I now see that ripping off one's wig is a comment on gender roles in society.

Latrice Royale!

Was there any doubt she'd win Miss Congeniality?
Will be amazing on Drag U.
Should win RPDR All Stars.
Can be my drag mother any day.

Everybody say LOVE! Who had the cutest family present?

Dida Ritz! Hey there Mama Ritz.
Phi Phi O'Hara! Even Mama O'Hara could tell Phi Phi had too much makeup piled on.
Chad Michaels! Adam is adorable AND talented!
Sharon Needles! Mama Needles and Alaska could not have been more adorable.

But wait... Sharon never did win a cruise!

GASP! We'll never hear the end of it.
DUH! She's going on the RPDR cruise.

Thank you mods for all the posts this season! It was fun to read and engage in discussions!

I have to say the reunion special was interesting. I love the opening number and everything, but with the way it being filmed, this season definitely lacks emotional payoff of a reality tv show. I'm happy that Sharon won, but I think it would be a much better ending if the show had decided to do the finale as usual. It's already more than six months after the season was filmed, the contestants are no longer in the heat of the competition. And after reading EW's article about the crowning scene that was filmed three times, and Sharon's was the second take, it felt so fake and staged to me. Such a bad way to end a good season :(

Crowning scene is the most crucial part of the competition, IMO. And the emotion showed by the victor or the runner-ups NEEDS to be genuine. I remember last year how crushed Manila was when they announce that Raja won. This year, the three finalists had to fake a win and two loses, there were no genuine emotion whatsoever. It was kind of anticlimactic :/

Thanks so much for participating! I'm glad you enjoyed spending the season with us. We can post all we want, but without your participation, it doesn't mean anything. :)

I really loved being around this community for the whole season this time - thank you mods for making it such a great environment and the fellow comm members for hilarious discussions and shady/astute observations! My boyfriend and I watch the show together online (in the UK) but nobody else we know does, so it's great being able to talk about them here.

You know, I'd read the article on how they filmed it before watching the finale, but I still found Sharon's "Happy Halloween!" very fitting somehow. I don't know if I would have preferred a genuine, tearful moment - there was something majestic and so in character with her persona about it that felt satisfying despite knowing about the staged nature of that moment.

Awww, yay! That is so great to hear. And you are most welcome. This community would be nothing without your support. I'm glad we could be here for you. :)

Thank you, mods, for werking it. I think your posts made the experience of watching RPDR even funner!

I liked the reunion's cheesetastic pageant-like opening number. Wasn't wowed by the queens who had gotten eliminated early on.

Of course I am totes happy that Ru picked the RIGHT queen. Mind you, I would've been happy if Chad had won too. ^_^ I'm glad that Ru saw Needles' potential.

I'm totes psyched about All-Stars, btw.

Oh, finally, the reason I picked the review round ups as the thing I am the least interested in is because I don't usually have the time to read all of them.

Alisa Summers got a good jab in, there. I kind of wish we had seen a little more of her.

Somewhere about halfway through the season I jumped the Sharon ship and got aboard the Chad ship, but I'm still happy that Sharon won. I would've loved her outfit, if only you couldn't have seen her bra.

Overall I liked this season a lot. I didn't understand the complaints about it. I'm really looking forward to seeing these girls on All-Stars, as long as Phail Phail isn't there.
