  • Reunion is a lot of fun always, I'm very looking forward to it too.
    Brook Lynn is the clear winner, deservingly.

      How are the show‘s ratings by the way? Like are the producers doing what they’re doing because they’re seeing a growth in popularity?
      I think ratings are meaningless these days. What drives the show is online discussion and trending. And there’s definitely been non-stop discussion about this series, mostly thanks to Silky

      I can’t believe you prefer S9 to everything else! It’s definitely my least fav

      • ^^ it’s really a mixed bag because Nielsen ratings (here in the US) are still very relevant as networks use them to set ad prices. The only difference now is social media and things like TiVo have made it even more difficult to truly track audiences. Rest assured all those Emmy wins, plot twists and Silky complaints and gripes get watchers to tune in each week and generated the ratings Viacom needs.

        • The ratings this season look similar to the last two.

          I think when you look at Yvie's track record at a macro level - one (joint) win, five (consecutive) high placements, three safe weeks, one low placement, and a bottom two placement, she doesn't look like she stands a chance against Brooke Lynn's scorecard, but I honestly believe Yvie had a winner-worthy season performance throughout. There are at least two other wins that I felt like she should have gotten, and save for Snatch Game and the magic show week, she was either excellent or strong. I find it interesting that this week she was just safe when both the Fashion Photo Ruview and the Bootleg Fashion Photo Ruview had her as their top toot of the week.

          Anyway, the new format doesn't care too much about track records, so let's see how the lip-syncs go.

          • Yvie needs more work IMO whereas Brooke is already polished.

            • My choice from the get go has been Yvie Oddly. There is something about her drag and attitude that has won me over. I’d pick her over Brooke and then finally there will be a black winner to appease all the fans making a big deal about it. But Yvie for the win. Thus far, it’s not only Brooke’s game but edit too.

                An Yvie win won't fix the racism in the fandom anyway.

                  Bebe will always be my fave!! Most underrated winner of them all!! Wish I could post gifs because I’d post Bebe.

                    They don't. Ratings dropped a bit. But nothing dramatic. More in line with TV shows usually losing viewers as the years go on.

                    • There’s just something about Brooke that I don’t want her to win. If I were to pick anyone it would be Yvie but again I think she could do with some time to gather herself (and her wardrobe).

                      • With Shea Couleé winning AS5 and the following AS break they might give this to Yvie in the end?!

                          Did AS5 already air??? lol... I'm team Brooke but I'd be fine with Yvie winning. I think Brooke is polished but she is safe and there is nothing edgy about her. Yvie on the other hand is unpolished but has an edge. Yvie would make the perfect cinderalla story and plus I can see the camera zooming in on Sily's face when Yvie wins....it makes for perfect TV.

                            • Yvie would benefit from All Stars but it would be a waste of time for Brooke.

                              • I'm counting tonight as a win for Yvie.

                                I'm pleasantly surprised that Yvie is winning the fan vote on IG and Twitter. Brooke Lynn has more IG and Twitter followers, so I thought she'd be the fan favourite.

                                  I wish they had given her a win, since there was a bottom 2 it really made sense.

                                  • I’m still rooting for Yvie for the win. He deserves it and brings a sense of evolution to RPDR.

                                      • Oh, and this season is the best regular season since S6.

                                        • Yvie was the best, but they were all a bit underwhelming in their raps/performances for me. Top 4 we all expected for weeks now, so no surprises there.

                                          • I actually really enjoyed the Queens Everywhere performance except for Silky's part. It grated on me and she should have been in the bottom with Vanjie.

                                            Delighted for Yvie, a clear winner this week and so happy to see her winning the public vote too!

                                            That lip sync was great and dare I say it, I think Vanjie won but Brooke couldn't have gone home. But what another iconic exit from Miss Vanjie, she's hilarious and I still love her even after a slightly underwhelming return!

                                              Love Vanjie. What an amazing personality.

                                                I think Brooke won the lip-sync, but Vanjie sure did go down fighting!

                                                  The remix was fantastic, and so was the video. Loved the overall energy.
                                                  No useless drama, just great drag!
                                                  I knew that lipsync was coming...they just had to do it.
                                                  KIIII @ Vanjie's exit omg. Girl. She slays her exists harder than the challenges.

                                                  • Queens Everywhere is not the best song but some great performances there! Yvie stood out most, her crawl across the bar was a stand-out. LOVED Vanjie’s verse but she was forgetting to lipsync on several occasions and a bit Robotney. Silky... god, throwing yourself on to your back is not attractive babes although it was unfair that she received less time than all the others and I loved the way she came bursting out of that toilet cubicle. Brooke was technically great but I agree there was something a bit missing, I didn’t want to rewatch her and A’keria again.

                                                    Bottom two were A’keria and Vanjie for me. Loved Yvie’s three boobed look. It was obvious Brooke vs Vanjie was coming, they signposted it so much throughout the episode

                                                    Great lipsync song! It was a close match, and if anything I’d say Vanjie maybe edged it, but Brooke was never going to go home before the final. Trust Vanjie to have another memorable exit

                                                    Did Todrick say “spastic”? Doubt you’d hear that on UK telly as an adjective!
