Yes, that one is brilliant. Dida Ritz killed it.

I also love this, despite Roxxy:

My favourite runway look, forever always. My jaw literally dropped when I saw it. Had to double take because I just couldn't get over it

One of my favourite lip syncs. I think they both did so well and Alaska's makeup was made for it :lol:



Also I agree with Detox in the season 5 reunion, my favourite runway look ever too. I was new to the show then and when I seen it I literally couldn't believe my eyes. Just incredible

Ranking (best to least best):

#1. Season 5
#2. All Stars 2
#3. Season 4
#4. Season 3
#5. Season 6
#6. Season 8
#7. Season 7
#8. Season 2
#9. All Stars 1

All Stars 1 isn't necessarily bad, I just really hated the format, thank god they fixed it for AS2. Also I don't mind season two, it has a really authentic, raw feel to it, but it just looks so messy compared to later seasons. I can't comment on the blur that is season one, as I haven't been able to watch it anywhere.

I wouldn't say there are any bad seasons, each ones has it's highlights and lowlights.

I think S5 is commonly considered the best but it wasn't for me. I remember not really getting into it until a few episodes in. The Coco vs. Alyssa angle was the first time the show felt really scripted to me. Plus it had the worst winner ever so that really dents it. Tbh, I didn't really like anybody in this season

Good idea to open a general discussion thread!

This is by far my favourite lip sync.... just EVERYTHING!

I saw Naomi Smalls perform last night! I was never rooting for her in S8 but she looks so mesmerising in person - she's a great lip syncer I gott say!

I really don't think Season 5 can be topped for a non Allstars season.

Season 3 is my fav. As I said. I'm in love with Raja but it also had a lot of other big characters like Shangela, Alexis, Manila, Carmen, etc. It also had the best challenges IMO but that's because I prefer design over comedy and acting

Season 1 was really enjoyable IMO but quite a different show from what we're used to now. The budget must have been quite a lot lower. Bebe was the obvious winner from the start really and I howled at the facial expressions during the girl group challenge. Tammie Brown was a mess, Nina Flowers was quite a striking contestant.

For me, Season 5 will probably not be beat as the best non-Allstars season, I loved Jinkx too. I'd probably rank them:

1. AS2
2. Season 5
3. Season 4
4. Season 6
5. Season 3
6. Season 7
7. Season 2
8. AS1
9. Season 8
10. Season 1

Winners:

1. Sharon Needles
2. Jinkx Monsoon
3. Alaska
4. Bianca Del Rio
5. Bob The Drag Queen
6. Bebe Zahara
7. Violet Chachki
8. Chad Michaels
9. Tyra Sanchez
10. Raja (can't bear it)
