    "Best Rupaul's drag race season ever! It got so many iconic moments. The first time lip-sync for your legacy happened (and the only time it worked 'coz it was a GAG), the Alyssa/Tatianna lip-sync, Rolaskatox saving Roxxxy's a** several times, PhiPhi losing her s**t. Back when an All-Star season was good. AS4 was good for the most part, but when Manila got eliminated it just went downhill. But AS2 is the gold standard of a great drag race season. If only Katya won, it would have been totally perfect. Hey, Alaska deserved her spot in the Hall of Fame, but Katya is my mom. "

    "I really thought Alaska was gonna win season 5. Don't get me wrong... I like Jinx, but she wasn't polished enough and Alaska was playing on a different level than the rest of the queens. Well, At least Miss Thunderf**k won AS2 so all is good in the world. RuPaul Drag Race Season 5 was so good because it gave us all the drama, momma. Everyone versus Serena Chacha was a particular highlight. That Untucked moment will forever be a part of drag race herstory. Too bad drag race is so mainstream now recent queens have lost their cattiness. I miss the good ol' days when a queen can be messy like Detox and Roxxxy and not get a sh*t storm of backlash on social media. There's a reason why half of AS2 is filled with S5 girls. "

    "Three words: BIANCA DEL RIO! She's the greatest winner ever and no one - NO ONE - could ever touch Bianca's talent, razor-sharp wit, and shadiness. Too bad 'coz all the succeeding seasons after season 6 will never be good enough. The b***h never lip synced for her life! I love Adore and Dela too but Bianca is a freaking goddess. 🤡"

    "Season 4 gave us Sharon Needles and changed drag race herstory forever. Because of her, a queen can be a complete weirdo and have a chance to win the crown. Oooops...spoiler alert! 😜 No one was like her. That apocalyptic zombie gown that she made, with blood spewing from her mouth - that was high drag. "

    "RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9 is the mothertucking tea, henny. It gave us that stunning Shea Coulee and Sasha Velour showdown and I still get chills whenever I think about it. Aja's reaction was all of us. That lip-sync was jaw-dropping. The reveal worked because it was truly unexpected and it enhanced the song. Queens nowadays will do any ruveal just for the heck of it and it feels inorganic and desperate. Sasha in drag race S9 finale will never be topped! 🌹🌹🌹"

    "S11 isn't over yet but it's proving to be one of the best Rupaul's drag race seasons ever. Vanjie's back, we have Scarlet feeling her oats in the Werk room, and that Brooke and Yvie lip sync! I mean, come on! Looking forward to the finale. I hope Silky gets murdered by either Miss Heights or Miss Oddly! "

    "Before the Manila Luzon tomfoolery, robbery and f**kery, AS4 was awesome. F**k Naomi Smalls! She deserved all the hate that she got! And WTF is up with that double win? Mama Ru is desperate for good press. Monet didn't deserve the crown! It should have been Trinity and Monique!!!"

    "The finale's lip sync was a complete and utter mess but I still live for Cracker, Monique, Monet, and Eureka. Yes, I love the Elephant Queen! She doesn't deserve the hate she's been getting. Honestly, the drag race fandom has become so toxic and blatantly racist it makes me sick. "
