Sermonette: My pick is Violet. I’m not in love with anyone, but I think she has serious talent and she’ll mellow with time. Like – Violet’s references and her tenacity are not to be questioned.
ValleGirl: It might be better for her to come in second, if she’s not the clear favorite. It’s the whole “She was ROOOOBBBED!” syndrome. Let Ginger win the shitty season.
Sermonette: But I can’t stomach watching them trotting her back out for future seasons.
ValleGirl: Maybe not. Tyra hasn’t been brought back except for the reunions since season 4.
Sermonette: So I’m curious – someone brought Tyra up in the comments section saying she was a pageant queen who won her season. What do you think of her in comparison to Ginger/Kennedy?
ValleGirl: As much as I disliked Tyra, she could at least put together a look that felt new and modern.
Sermonette: I think that Tyra was a bitch, but I think she looked amazing. I’d compare her more to Violet. Bitchy, but undeniably talented in a fresh and modern way.
ValleGirl: I think that’s what bothers me most about Ginger/Kennedy. Their looks are so old.
Sermonette: Yes. I totally feel you there. Not fresh, not exciting.
ValleGirl: Not vintage. Just old.
ValleGirl: Oh yay. Now the video.
Sermonette: Nip/Tuck vibes.
ValleGirl: Pearl’s “ugliest” dress is one of her prettier ones.
ValleGirl: I met Jason [of the pit crew]. He’s so damn hot in person. It was his first season, and I was the only person at the club who recognized him. He was sweet. Posed with me and my friends.
Sermonette: I’m sure he was excited. Miles gives me the sweats.
Sermonette: Violet’s plaid reveal is legendary.
ValleGirl: Yeah, that was a lot of look.
Sermonette: And actually when Sasha’s says “I wore a lobster dress…” might be the “back rolls?!” line of this season. God I love Alyssa
ValleGirl: I might still say it like her.
ValleGirl: I think my favorite Alyssa moment was when she was making those faces in the mirror then sheepishly admits it’s her favorite part of drag. Do you, Alyssa.
Sermonette: Alyssa is IMPORTANT
ValleGirl: I also say “SHADE” like she did as the creepy, cross-dressing uncle.
Sermonette: Laganja almost made me turn on Alyssa.
Sermonette: Are there any thoughts you want to express to folks?
ValleGirl: Yeah, don’t vote for Ginger. I mean, don’t vote for Violet or Pearl, either. But if you have to vote, don’t vote for Ginger.
Sermonette: Hahaha. That’s the perfect way to end it.
Sermonette: I was getting a little nostalgic for the ex-queens. I even got a little soft for Jaidynn.
ValleGirl: Glad I could help. I expected Bianca to show the queens up, but Alaska, Raja, Raven, Jujubee. It felt like seeing old friends. And Jaidynn seems like such a great kid.
Sermonette: Do you have anything positive to say about this season?
ValleGirl: Positive … I think Katya will be the break out star. Like Jennifer Hudson. Didn’t make it to the end, but will be the star everyone remembers.
Sermonette: I agree with that.
ValleGirl: Katya and Jaidynn were definitely the bright spots in a weak season.
Sermonette: Ginger will be like Roxxy and PhiPhi but she won’t go away like they did. I don’t think she’s going anywhere regardless of the outcome. Do you think people think of her as the villain?
Sermonette: I wanted to take the temperature of the internet – she definitely has a fan base.
ValleGirl: I’m sure she does, but I wonder if they’re just really loud and not that many. I saw a photo of her on the Drag Race IG account and people were mostly commenting with things like “No, just no.”
Sermonette: Compact and loud. Like Ginger.
ValleGirl: I was genuinely surprised when I saw that she had the least likes/comments on her photo on IG. Even less than Pearl. It wasn’t a big difference, but definitely less.
Sermonette: People love Pearl cuz she’s hot.
Sermonette: I mean she’s captivating but she’s not a showstopper.
ValleGirl: Yeah, he is cute. But that didn’t stop people from hating Raja.
Sermonette: Raja had some rough spots. She was immediately my pick but she made it hard to like her at times. I didn’t care for that whole booger/heather angle that producers created. But even without that fabrication she was legit bitchy. he has high standards.
ValleGirl: The only time I wanted Raja to lighten up was with Stacy. She steamrolled Stacy.
Sermonette: Stacy is from NC – very near where I grew up. So I’m partial to her despite her struggles. Her Monique was awesome.
ValleGirl: I didn’t particularly like her, but Raja came pretty close to bullying her. And she was funny as Monique.
Sermonette: The strawberry shortcake haute couture …not so much.
ValleGirl: No, those white shoes might haunt my nightmares.
Sermonette: Red velvet stretch pants?
ValleGirl: Oof. Yes.
Sermonette: It’s the stuff of nightmares
Sermonette: I will say Ginger did great at John Waters challenge.
ValleGirl: She earned that win.
Sermonette: And I can’t remember but i think i liked her one other time
ValleGirl: She was good in the safety video, too.
Sermonette: Thanks for chatting
ValleGirl: No problem. Hope I helped.
Sermonette: Alright – g’night!
ValleGirl: Good night!
