I'm not really sure which, of the two, they would want back for a future All Stars if such a thing were to transpire (I don't even know if they would just jump to the American edition, or create a British All Stars... it doesn't bear thinking about really ). If American, Vivienne would be more polished and ready to compete I think.

Just wish people weren't so wrapped up in "the nicest one has to win!" editing. Because it's clearly a level playing field between the two, and Vivienne's been funnier and stood out in challenges more

I feel like Divinas wins are never fully justified, like the first one she won should have been Crystals win tbh, the second one she got she was carried by Baga and Blu (lbh noone cared about Div in the frock destroyers) and last week she only won because they wanted Cheryl in the bottom and Vivs wasn't anything too special

Errr, she was not carried by Blu

Episode by episode the winner should've been:
1 (Queen / Hometown look) - Sum Ting Wong
2 (Downton Draggy) - Baga or Divina (if judged individually)
3 (Drag on a Dime) - Divina (way more resourceful / cheaper materials than Crystal's)
4 (Snatch Game) - Vivienne (alone. by far.)
5 (Girl bands) - Baga (marginally better than Divina, although Divina had the best runway of the 3 girls)
6 (Adverts) - Vivienne
7 (Makeover) - Cheryl

Which would've had a final of all of them still being equal, on 2 each except for the tiebreaker of the Downton episode.

omg im so happy with that result! I think editing made it a bit obvious towards the end showing Divina rolling her eyes etc to whatever the Vivienne was saying.

She really deserved that win and I know her WOW show will be very entertaining.

As someone who has never watched Love Island before, let me first say... hello Curtis and also Divina's dancer

Didn't mind them as guest choreographers. I prefer people who know what they're talking about to, say, Alyssa Edwards just trying to steal the camera again

Performance-wise...
Baga - bless her, she tried. The lyrics were just a bit...nothing there Wearing a completely different colour to the other two was a bit odd, too.
Divina - pretty bloody faultless great vocals, great choreo.
Viv - redeemed herself from Break Up. Not as good as Divina but solid.

Runway-wise...
Baga - erm...it's nice?
Divina - love the dress. The hair and makeup...not so much.
Viv - top toot

Baga basically just handing herself third place with that "why I should win" speech :/ I know British people are more humble and demure but jesus girl!
Vivienne calling herself humble

The returning queens all look great...with the weird exception of Crystal what the **** was she thinking? But this was a great moment and really encapsulated why I've loved this season: they're so supportive of each other and embarking on a new (Drag Race UK) journey together and started something brilliantly.

Baga's magnanimity was really sweet to hear. She has had iffy moments and obviously the pre-season hype with her being a Tory or whatever, obviously turned a lot of people off her and assumed she'd be a dickhead... but she's been pretty congenial throughout and a really sweet and kind person with the other queens. just not her mum

The final lipsync is pretty bloody close but I would JUST give Vivienne the edge for tweaking her nipples and the knee-slide

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS they didn't cave to the fans

Well what a predictable winner. We all knew Viv would win since the cast announcement, with a bottom 2 thrown in to throw us off the scent. Granted she did win the lip sync, I though Divina would have a trick up her sleave but she failed there. Oh well I wonít be watching Vivís YouTube series and I doubt many other people will either unless it features other queens.
