RPDR s9e14 • Grand Finale! • 23 June 2017



Last time on RuPaul's Drag Race the queens returned 
for a reunion of sorts at the Alex Theatre.
Doesn't Ru look so far away and tiny in this shot?

Miss CuCu passed the Miss Congeniality torch,
er, sash to Miss Duplicitous, Valentina.

Aja changed the title to Fan Favorite,
which is more accurate.


Did you think this was the right final four.
I mean, besides the travesty of
Valentina EARNING her elimination.

What did you think of the finale?   I still wanted RuPaul to chat briefly with every single queen, like she has in the prior seasons.   Ru only chatted with the top 4, the rest were only on stage for a brief moment.  And, where were the prior winners, like they would have on every finale?

“Bitch, we got lives to lead!”

At least we got to see Winter Green!

Regardless, I’m glad that something new was added.

The top 4 had to lip synch in order to determine the eventual winner.

Peppermint & Trinity Taylor lip synched to Britney Spears’ “Stronger.”

Peppermint won, thanks to a costume change & a wig reveal in the middle of the song.  Until that point, I thought Trinity was taking the semi-final win.

Shea Couleé & Sasha Velour lip synched to Whitney Houston’s “So Emotional.”

Sasha Velour won, thanks to a bunch of rose petals, eh?

This means Peppermint & Sasha Velour became top two, and lip synched against each other for crown, to WH’s “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay.”

And Sasha won that challenge, too.

True to form, the right person won, but this year the top 4 were SO very close.

It hasn’t always been this way.  Only season 6 has been somewhat close.

"Not for me."

Ready to see Eureka O’Hara and a bunch of fresh queens on season 10 next year?   They ought to be filming soon, if they haven’t already, and we should see some evidence online in no time.

 Long live Sasha!

Even if Bob never gives up the crown.
