    Drama queens looking for more drama and better ratings for reunion show? Yeah real shocker there..

  • Brian

    What started out as Fun and Campy a few years back has now become a Nasty Horrible piece of TRASH..Hope it gets cancelled..all the drag wanabees are Gross!

  • Woo

    Phi Phi is killing them i love all of them but she came a long way

  • Bill P.

    To all of the nay-sayers…. If you don’t like the show, don’t watch it but also don’t come here talking smack. Now, as far as the winner, I’m torn between Chad Michaels and Sharon Needles. Chad is so eloquent and beautiful where Sharon puts a completely new spin on drag. In the beginning, I thought I really liked Phi Phi but her attitude, underhanded approach and shady attitude shows she has a lot of growing up to do before she fully understands healthy competition. Drag queen or not, if you have to tear someone else down in order to make yourself look and feel better, you simply do not DESERVE to win.

  • Dex

    Sharon needles rock the show!!!!! Party City girl deserves the crown!!!! She has been the most consistent and won the most challenges. Put the crown on a brilliant drag superstar that pushes the limit on what drag can be. Sharon rules!!!!

  • michael sweet

    this is ridiculous!why do we have to wait for the reunion to find out the winner?

  • michael sweet

    chad is going to win!i just know it.phi phi should have been gone after the ‘frenemies’challenge.it’s all willam’s fault!her disqualification had better be DAMN good!

  • michael sweet
