Grand Finale - After an epic lip-sync smack-down by the four finalists, RuPaul crowns America's next drag superstar. Will it be Brooke Lynn Hytes, Yvie Oddley, A'keria Davenport, or Silky Nutmeg Ganache?
Miss Congeniality is also announced. Will it be Nina West, or... nah, it will be Nina West.
I'm fine with Yvie winning but I was a little surprised -- after the two lip syncs, I thought it was a forgone conclusion that Brooke Lynn was going to win, so I was looking away and doing some work during the final lip sync. Did Yvie really do that much better? I mean, other than her look?
Everybody knew Brooke would leave Silky in the dust, so I'm wondering why Silky picked her. And the Yvie/Akeria lip sync looked like amateur night, except that Yvie was wearing more interesting drag.
Overall the show was more entertaining than other finales, with more sass and fewer lags. Ru was on point ("Box 96..."), and Nina West's "Meh" stole the night. It was a good ending to an uneven season.
I guess Yvie/Brooke is like when Sharon Needles beat Chad Michaels. I guess Brooke can have her moment in the next All Stars...
