    • First off Congrats to Jaida  - some stunning looks throughout the season and a funny likeable queen.   Ru's serial killer masks were just plain weird.   Going in it was b/w Jaida and Gigi. Crystal was great but too quirky and not as polished  up against those two.   OK Face lipsync Gigi was clear winner , even using her eyelashes as Michelle stated. Crystal's makeup was messy and made it hard to make out her expressions and those yellow teeth !! Jaida did a fine job.   Home made video. Crystal was madness with the bird theme but she should have moved to a full reveal in some bird costume than just the puppets all the way through. Gigi's was incredible with the costumes. filming and tribute to the original clip. Jaida just pushed the sofa to one side of the room and the Ciara song was pretty ordinary.   Final lipsync Again Crystal's look was cluttered and distracted from the lipsync .The song didn't suit her . Gigi slayed it with the costume change  Jaida to me was up to her usual standard but nothing we hadn;t seen before.   So I was a little surprised to have Ru announce Jaida as the winner.   Methinks that Gigi didn't represent  what Ru (and the producers) want the show to represent.   The narrative constantly pushed is that the show is some sort of touchstone that changes lives and provides inspiration for the vulnerable and marginalized. Gigi was a confident, talented , priveleged queen with supportive mom. Not the struggle that Ru wants to present.

    • any idea which on is the first probably around 740ish?
    • I remember that well, and the entire storyline as well as Roscoe's upset with it all (funny enough at the time I had never seen him as Mitch, etc--I had only been watching soaps since 1991).  Funny, I knew him from The City, where he played nice guy Nick, so I didn't know that he was usually cast as a baddie... I might be completely off time wise, but I think the story changed direction when McTavish came back to replace Broderick??  Anyone remember?  I actually liked an awful lot of 1997 AMC (Tanner Jordan and Jamaica Zombies aside) though it wasn't as strong as Broderick's 1996.  1997 AMC still had a lot of great stuff, and "felt" like Pine Valley.  ANd of course then we got McTavish 2.0....... Tonya had just been in the famous Stephen Sondheim flop Merrily We Roll Along which mostly cast very young, inexperienced actors.  Looking at footage of her back then (it closed just at the end of 1981) I could totally picture her as Angie, and she would have been closer to the right age.  But of course I'm glad we got Debbi. Ha, yes.  I believe Labine talks about this in her Welovesoaps interview.
    • I adore Loving but I could never explain the Clay/Alex story at any of the stages I've watched (either when it aired or since on YT)  Yet on the Loving FB page it's a fave of many...  (Maybe just cuz it went on so long )
