    Congratulations to Sasha Velour!

    Based on the lip-syncs it could have gone either way between her and Peppermint -- Ru must have been paying attention to social media the last couple of weeks.

    Next year, there is supposedly an All-Stars 3 season as well as Season 10!

    Yay!! Glad Sasha won, she definitely deserved it IMO After seeing Valentina on the reunion show, I'm not nearly as disappointed she didn't go farther.

    I'm also happy Sasha won, I usually prefer it when an unconventional queen takes the title. I would have been okay with hometown girl Peppermint winning as well. I think it was right that Shea and Trinity ended up as runners-up. Shea dominated all season, but in the last few weeks and especially last night, her looks were more and more ordinary.

    I'm a little iffy on this Lip Sync For The Crown thing though -- this basically means that Ru would have been happy with any one of the four winning, so he left it all up to a game of chance and lip syncing? Why did they all knock themselves out all season if it wasn't going to be decided on merit? If Ru thinks more than one queen could represent him as the winner, then he should crown more than one winner. They'd probably have to split the prize money, but at least everyone who deserved the title would get it.

    Overall it was a good season, and I'm thrilled that the show has gotten so much more exposure (and ratings) by being on VH1. And with a Top 4, you know a bunch of queens from this season will be in the next All Stars.

    And I loved Papa Velour!

    Loved the theatrics with Sasha. Very creative. And Peppermint's last look was underwhelming. But it's such a 'feel good' show.

    And I loved that I was waiting for the bus today and two gentlemen passed me with tanktops saying 'Sashay Away' and 'Shantay You Stay.'

    By far the best finale of RPDR ever!! I was totally team Shea or Trinity going into the final episode but Sasha killed it. Completely deserved!!
