12 Evil Twins 2.78



No surprise this is last by quite some margin. It garnered a fair bit of controversy for using people's struggles and inner demons as a challenge and I'm inclined to agree, it was just not a great concept and nobody executed THAT well, Aquaria I guess deserved the win but eh.

11 Breastworld 5.67



About right for this I think, some solid performances but the whole thing was really dragged out and the script was quite iffy (Asia, Aquaria and Monet did the best they could with it) plus Eureka, Cracker and Kameron were all pretty awful.

10 Tap That App 6.66



Similar to Breastworld, this was beset by a few kinda shit performances - especially being early in the season. This was a better challenge on the whole though, I'd have it higher than a few to come. Blair/Eureka/Cracker were all great as a unit, yet Asia won making a stupid face lol so funneh!111!1 Still will NEVER understand that but I've gone on about that enough kink.gif

09 Pharmarusical 6.72



Probably the weakest after Evil Twins for me, it was a solid enough performance but I didn't have that desire to go and watch it back. Nobody really stood out and I felt like Vixen's win was just "you led the winning team well".

08 American 7.33



A solid enough challenge, I really liked all the verses and the choreography tbh.

07 Dragcon 7.67 (no 11s, less 10s)



The first of a 3 way tie! This was a "nice" challenge for me, I really enjoyed the winning panel and it was Kameron's first time to really shine. Eureka obv stole it though! The other two panels were ofc pretty iffy to say the least, especially poor Blair/Vixen/Cracker who absolutely bombed.

06 10s Across The Board 7.67 (no 11s, more 10s)



The first challenge of the series was an homage to the first ever challenge Drag On A Dime. It set up excitement for the series as there were lots of great looks and potential winners, but Mayhem snatched it! The most iconic though was of course Monet's sponge dress, the recurring gag of the season alongside Miss Vanjie *.*

05 Makeover 7.67 (one 11)



With an 11 this breaks the tie and comes out on top! This wasn't my fave makeover challenge, but Miz Cookie was incredible and it was brilliant to see Cracker FINALLY get her win!

04 Bossy Rossy Show 7.72




This was another challenge where Eureka shone, I really enjoyed her role as well as Miz Cracker's bonkers Dill Pickle and Monique's maneating mistress of a cactus, any of them could have won imo.

03 Cher: The Unauthorized Rusical



MIZ CRACKER ROBBED!!!! Honestly cannot fathom how she wasn't even in the top, Kameron was good but I think Ru was a bit precious about how Cher was portrayed and Cracker was a bit too tongue in cheek pisstake version of comeback Cher, idk drama.gif An enjoyable and fun challenge anyway, there were competent and good performances as well as funny ones (Asia's was hilarious also for the wrong reasons).

02 Snatch Game 8.27



Always a fan fave challenge, this year was completely stolen by Eureka's Honey Boo Boo, Monet's Maya Angelou and of course Aquaria's Melania Trump. Eureka would have won the past couple of Snatch Games had she been on those seasons and done Honey Boo Boo (it was SO dead on I was cackling rotf.gif) but Aquaria's is one of the best ever imo. It was so unexpected, clever, funny, totally spot on and in character for the whole thing. That's where we knew Aquaria was a star, not just a pretty face and nice body turning a few looks.

01 The Last Ball On Earth 8.94



So your fave challenge was the ball! This came much earlier than in previous seasons, being the 4th challenge, so we got a bumper 33 looks! It was great seeing everyone show a few sides and perhaps venture out of their comfort zones, I was particularly impressed with Cracker, Eureka, Kameron and of course Aquaria who won her first challenge. There were lots of brilliant looks, a great challenge.

LIPSYNCS

15 Final 4 - Call Me Mother 3.75

In last place unsurprisingly is the rather uninspiring Final 4 lipsync to Ru's Call Me Mother. I'm not sure, as much as I love it, this is a great lipsync song anyway, but when it was used while the final 4 were in extravagant gowns, unable to properly move about the stage, with of course very little space anyway with 4 queens on stage, it was a bit awkward to say the least and was just really the final 4 swaying a bit and lipsyncing the words, you could feel them like "god when can we leave" laugh.gif


14 Monique vs. The Vixen - Cut To The Feeling 3.90

Not faring much better is perhaps the most disappointing lipsync of the season. FINALLY we got a Carly Rae song, and I thought Monique would be a great lipsyncer and give Vixen a run for her money... But nope. Monique forgot the words and did the classic slip-up of turning around so the judges couldn't see that her mouth wasn't moving at all :') Vixen gave a solid ish performance but it couldn't save it from the trainwreck Monique dragged it down to sad.gif

Oops sorry I forgot to comment on the challenge results! A deserving winner, I would have put American higher though and maybe Snatch Game down a couple - the highlights were so good but the bottom three were terrible.

Cut to the Feeling should be LAST in the lipsyncs I didn't rate those though so I can't complain ph34r.gif I had so much second hand embarrassment for both those queens.

13 Asia vs. Kameron - Nasty 4.70


Next up is an iconic for ALL the wrong reasons lipsync to the crown. One of the best Janet songs was SCREAMING out to be a lipsync but we got.... this. Kameron wasn't that great but it was the trainwreck with Asia's stunt that put this one in the history book. She had planned to release live butterflies but they were all dead and we ended up with dead butterflies scattered all over the floor being stomped on with extreme close ups of them, leading to awful yet hilarious memes.

12 Eureka vs Auqaria - If 4.93

Another lipsync to the crown, this was just all round average really and ended in a double shante. Eureka probably "won" but they probably didn't want a fuss like season 9 in taking out Aquaria and Asia before the final lipsync so Aquaria managed to stay and ofc win the whole thing.

i am still AGOG at nasty being used once in allstars controversially already for it to be used again in the finale for season 10 with similar effect! talk about a curse. both of the janet were AWFUL choices (and this is from janet who has a discography that includes one of the most OBVIOUS gay pride adjacent songs ever) so i don't know what rupaul was smoking
