Hello bitches, I'm back! Did you miss me? I'm back all refreshed to provide you with all the pissed off bloggers upset about the finale. I think it was a good idea, especially if it means my girl Sharon Needles wins over Phi Phi. I only have a handful of reviews to get to you: I think everyone died after realizing there would be no queen crowned on Monday. So let's get on to the whining! Fierce Black Queen Part 1
and Part 2
:"The reason I’m being so hard on you Ru, is because you are THE Dynamic Diva in Drag. Not only have you changed the face of Female Impersonation, but you’ve done so in an entertaining and artistic fashion. You are a consummate professional. The drivel you put out last night was—at best—amateurish, and—at worst—insulting to the intelligence your viewers. " Hedda Lettuce
: The world's bitchiest drag queen columnist gives her opinions: "This week’s episode of "RuPaul’s Drag Race" was one of the worst pieces of reality TV I have seen in a long time. Even the short-lived "Temptation Island," where infidelity on a remote tropical local was condoned, was more entertaining. Granted, it gave me a tropical disease from watching it, which was easily cured with a simple shot of Penicillin. Wet brain on the other hand is not curable. Part of my mind has been mushed into a not-so-fine pate after watching "Drag Race," episode #12."Houston Chronicle
: "Things got intense. Chad’s face actually expressed emotion. Phi Phi’s Flintstone bathing suit grew more ridiculous with each look. Sharon looked half-dead. (Oh, wait …) And then — nothing. After the girls worked the stage to ‘Glamazon,’ Ru tells them the winner is … announced next week. At the reunion. Um, excuse me? What? WHAT. Then why a finale? Why not make next week the finale? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US, RUPAUL. (I seriously fielded texts, phone calls, tweets and facebook messages about this within the span of about 10 minutes.)"Queerty
: "RuPaul informs us that the winner will be announced next week during the reunion show. Oh, and we’re supposed to tweet who we think the winner should be with #dragrace. Tweets will help determine the result. Seriously? You might as well tell me that the Next Drag Superstar will be determined by Klout score. Commence silent outrage.
I now have to leave these ridiculous party decorations up for another week? By then the RuPaul shrine might be set ablaze by my angry houseguests. And don’t even get me started on the commemorative “Everybody say ‘love!’” tattoo on my forearm!"Rochester City Paper
: "I guess we'll call that the finale that wasn't. The finales for "Drag Race" have historically been controversial. In Season 1 you had the widely adored Nina Flowers losing to the also-awesome Bebet Zahara Benet. In Season 3 you had Ru giving the nod to edgy, unconventional queen Raja instead of polished-but-mainstream Manila Luzon. In Season 2 the vast majority of the viewership - me included - was baffled and enraged by the win going to unlikable Tyra Sanchez over Jujubee or Raven. But this "finale"? This is probably going to be the most controversial yet. And I think that's brilliant." Tom and Lorenzo
: "Look, we enjoy the self-referential and irreverent take on reality competitions that this show trades in, but this really goes beyond winking at the audience or satirizing the form. This was just a naked grab to extend the proceedings another week. We suppose the ratings on the reunion show aren’t as high as the (so-called) finale, but moving the announcement of the winner back another week was a shitty thing to do, especially since they waited until the very last minute of the show to let us all know. It was bad enough that they’re making us wait until the reunion to find out why a contestant was kicked off the show for violating the rules, but to make us wait another week to find out the winner shows a distinct and unpleasant lack of respect for the audience. This show isn’t exactly a ratings bonanza and it’s only on the air (and the only hit LOGO’s had in … well, ever) because of a devoted audience of core fans. It’s a really shitty way to treat that audience and to make matters worse, we don’t believe for one second that any of the fan voting will make any difference regarding who’s going to win. With as much disrespect as this show’s demonstrated this season toward its fans, that may be the worst part of all."
