Any one of this year’s class will be a welcome addition to an upcoming All Stars or Vs The World season - I’m mildly gagged by how fond I became of DeDe (who in my memory did not outstay her welcome in the end).
I did have a tinge of sadness that Cara didn’t make it to filming for the final episode (am I right in assuming it wasn’t strictly illness that caused her no-show?) You just know that “Photo RuView Game” they played had so many Cara toots and production didn’t include because they didn’t want to draw attention to her absence…
With the exception of one piece, Ginger made everything she wore. I'm happy to see that level of talent rewarded, and Michael will be back at some point for more success, because they were brilliant too. I don't think we've ever had a queen like Ginger win, whose campy aesthetic feels so distinctly English, but also, I don't think any other queen in that contest understands colour the way she does, the way she uses it in her drag. Sometimes she seems like a high-fashion panto dame, other times like an Abigail's Party fan, but always a true eccentric.
I find all the final episodes boring except for the work room bits, challenge bits and music video.
The 'what would you say to little so' and so and then tick tack chats are so cringe and forced to add emotion. Also the crownings are (understandably) awks when they don't actually know if they've got it or not.
