When I first saw Detox on the finale I thought, "Oh wow, they're giving her really bad lighting." And then came the fab realization.
But, and it's a big but, then I was just trying to figure out what exactly she was going for? Silver screen siren? Vampira? Vampy silver screen siren? Didn't know for sure... I settled on silver screen siren.
The beauty being that Detox's severity is such that it can probably always be Vampira.
^ I'm still amazed at how she managed to pull off this black and white look..almost flawlessly. Not sure exactly what she was going for, but I do think she'd have seduced Bogey
Bad decisions make good stories.
I'm not getting all this "Detox is so bitter" stuff, seems so exaggerated. Was she annoyed that some of the younger/rookie Queens seemed to get more praise than the vets? Sure, but that doesn't mean she's "bitter"...just annoyed or frustrated. What does she have to be bitter about? Her act/band with Willam & Vicky Vox are doing way better than 90% of any of the Queens from all seasons.
...and then come back and fuck her.

yes, there is 100'000$ involved, but it's important to remember that it's all a game, if only for appearances sake. the audience came to be entertained, not to hear you complain.
btw i think she was going for "lady who walked out of a black and white photograph"... dont know if it was supposed to be more specific than that.

Fun fact: Finale producers taped three different crownings (one for each of the three). I suppose so as to avoid witness online blabbing!
That's according to a friend of mine who was at the finale taping. (I yelled at him for not inviting me.)
I was so almost in the loop.

^ she didnt say anything offensive or wrong, but as i see it, she wasnt having any fun, that was exactly the problem. well, "problem", lets not exagerate. i still think shes fierce. i just dont think she was particularly poised that evening.
^ I though she was good on the finale, but true, not the most sparkling personality on that one.
The bright side being that she was...ready for her close-up.
OMG. The mirror in my bedroom just spontaneously cracked when I said that.

She snuck up on me, she really did - quite honestly, I had pegged Alaska as the winner just on cynicism alone, and lost some interest.
That is, until Jynx did Malambo No. 1 and crushed Detox. Seriously, the difference in style was STAGGERING - she even out crazy-mouthed the girl! Glad a comedy queen won, though for me if I choose comedy, I'm still loving Pandora.
I wasn't that as into it this season as I was with season 3, and hell, even 4 got better with time. It felt that it went too much with "the big drama", and when those queens got the boot, Roxxxy tried to assume the role of HBIC... and you see where that got her.
Come to think of it, I think every season had a big bitch in third place except season 2 and 3. Rebecca Glasscock, Phi Phi O'Hara, and now Roxxxy... eh, they never learn. Then again, Tyra and Raja won(one obviously, the other... eh, I can go either way), so there's that theory shot down...
"Thereís death on the horizon,
and Iíll run to behold your sacrifice..."
I honestly felt like that song was a shoe-in for Jinkx. If she had bombed it, I would have been stunned. It was just the kind of old-fashioned song that I thought Jinkx would rock and she did.That is, until Jynx did Malambo No. 1 and crushed Detox.

I too am glad a comedy queen won and although I would have liked to see what Pandora could have done with more time, I think Jinkx and Alaska both had a better runway look than Pandora.
