[Spoilers for the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars below]
Whether you’re on #TeamTrixie or #TeamShangela, everyone seems to be in agreement that the finale of RPDRAS season 3 felt a bit… anticlimactic.
It’s damn-near impossible to explain, from the TV viewer’s perspective, why Shangela, the show’s strongest competitor after Ben’s departure, wasn’t able to battle in the final lip sync.
To that point, as the eliminated queens voted on the top two, Shangela received a total of one point — a second-choice pick from Thorgy.
You can see how the votes stacked up here:

Needless to say, people have some opinions on what went down:
I’m not even mad that Trixie won. She deserved it just as Shangela did. I’m mad that Shangela was robbed of the chance to fight for the win, when she was MORE than deserving of doing so.

I think it’s safe to say we’re not mad that trixie won we’re mad that shangela was robbed of her chance to win #AllStars3
