I was team DDC but sadly it wasn’t meant to be. As much as I loved her runway look (very Ginger Spice 2019), it just wasn’t the right one for the final. I think everyone has known for weeks that The Viv was going to win and as competent as she is... I can’t stand smugness.
There’s nothing wrong with being good and knowing it, but what was interesting I how on very different sides of the fence DDC and TV were with it. DDC has worked hard at her talents and skills and wanted (deserved) validation, whereas TV just seems naturally gifted to the point of smugness.
That’s why I felt DDC should have won but I get the impression RuPaul is looking for something much more polished and shiny... thus the winner. Don’t get me wrong, The Viv is a deserving winner. But in the UK I think we’re used to the idea that reality tv winners are supposed to have a lot of heart and humility to earn the win - not just walk in fully formed.
I agree with the choice of the final lip-sync song, I wanted something more camp/cheesy/pop/fierce (insert drag/gay adjective here).
I thought The Vivienne was the best queen over the course of the series, even with her blip in the girl group episode, which I don't think she was even particularly bad in.
Divina was the better queen in the final episode though, with her dress in my opinion, and the lip-sync. I was happy with either of them winning in hindsight although at the moment in the final, I expected Divina to win.
