    Covid and Sherry Pie ruined it all..but hey...they did fairly good with the options they had. Moreover, not enough drama in my opinion, this year's cohort really was Ru Paul's Best friends. I even watched Untucked and nothing really spicy there either. I really feel sorry for all the other participants, I really wish they get the gala they deserve and maybe a real coronation.

    This season was absolutely amazing! There were no queens that could be deemed as "unlikable". It was just full of talented queens, and as much as the show itself is getting a little old and kind of destroys drag (in a way) the girls this season were really really good at being themselves which was probably the best part of it!

    They kept saying and repeating that this is the most talented batch of queens. I really beg to defer. I find that the truth is the opposite of that, which explains why they have to repeatedly verbalize it to try and shift public opinion. If this batch of queens is truly the best, we don't need those involved in the show to tell us, we would already know.I find this season's queens to be completely lackluster. While no one has the authority to truly define what drag is and isn't and that Sharon Needles type of drag is completely legitimate. What Crystal Methyd do most of the time was outright a circus show and not drag. I mean come'on look at the Makeover Look with Opal, that's clearly not drag, it's a man dressing up as a male sesame's street character. To think that Rupaul faulted Alaska back in the the day for dressing up in a challenge as a farm boy, to allowing and even rewarding this nonsense.... Nothing against the winner of the season as well. But he was a pretty "meh" contestant. So to have him as THE winner, really solidify my sentiments that this season sees a extremely lacklustre of queens. They are nowhere at the level of previous seasons. Most of them feel so manufactured and off-the-mill. And RuPaul needs to stop defining clown-bafoony as drag. A man dressing up as a male character is not drag.

    After 11 seasons, 5 All Stars, millions of fans and drags, is this the best queens you could find? Gurl, please. I don't want to be shady, but come on, do you really think they are at the same level as Bianca del Rio, Valentina, Raven, Katia, Trixie, Alaska...? They are cute, but there's no fuckin comparison.

    Season 12 of Rupaul's Drag Race had an incredible cast. The non-elimination, split premier was a smart idea to let the audience to get to know the queens better. Every contestants were memorable and had left an impression on me unlike the previous seasons. Considering what is happening right now and the controversy revolving around one of the cast member right before the season started, season 12 has done a great job at entertaining the audience. Overall, the season felt fresh, especially after season 11 which was an utter mess, and brought us back to RPDR root which we all love. The at home reunion and finale episodes were surprisingly entertaining and in the end the right queen won.

    It had a very great start but then the last two episodes and the winner-choice ruined the whole season.

    One of the best seasons ever for this highly entertaining, addictive show.
