Ooooh me too! I loved Raja... :yay: I was afraid Alexis Mateo would win cuz she is so sweet, but, with a little fight in her; huh? ("One person I would punch in the face is Manila") :rolls:

Oh so sorry SW...by the title on thread I thought everyone knew.

I guess it meant to put the spoilers on...

Yea, Raja was amazing, and I too am a Santino fan. :clap:

No worries. I can't stand it when people b**** about being spoiled. I didn't mean to sound like I was bitching. I'll rephrase: Though I haven't seen the finale yet I'm happy with the outcome. :)

You'll enjoy it. Heartwarming and yet deliciously catty.

Really? I wanted Raja to win, but even she says she has a polarizing style of drag. I thought Manila might pull ahed at the last minute. But Manila always overdoes her lipsynching - that might be her weak spot.

I loved Alexis, loved her from her audition tape. But she didn't change things up enough in the outfit department. But I would have been happy with any of them winning.

I don't know about a polarizing style of drag. To me she was one of the most accessible drag queens I've seen on the show & the most gorgeous as either male or female.

I completely agree with you, but some people feel that if you don't pad and you don't really emphasize the feminine aspect, it's not drag. Sutan also doesn't change his voice when he's being Raja. I personally loved it - Ongina from Season 1 did the same thing.

Amongst queens exaggeration & camp are a big part of their show & their persona. Not necessarily so with Raja. Dare I say her act probably wouldn't fly if she weren't genetically bent towards a lovely sexual ambiquity in face & form. I wonder if jealousy from the other queens comes into it at all? Most of them couldn't pull off the look Raja has.

Of course there's always a little jealousy, even among the friendliest of performers. I think someone steeped in more traditional drag might think Sutan is taking shortcuts, but as a viewer I'll bet it's dang hard to get androgyny that good, even if you are somewhat androgynous yourself!
