** There was a BrokenBase after queens like Naomi Smalls and Bob the Drag Queen would read Season 9's Aja for her skin. While some people thought the jokes were immediately in bad taste, other argue they were obviously not meant to be malicious (reading ''is'' practically a past time in the drag world) and Aja was being too sensitive. Then "Good Morning Bitches" airs, and Aja reveals how cruel people have been to her, and that people have been outright calling her ugly to her face for years due to her facial scars and skin complexion.

** Noah Galvin appeared as a guest judge for the tv pilot challenge. The episode aired a week after Galvin's own show, ''Series/TheRealONeals'', was cancelled by ABC.

** Valentina herself became this in the wake of her elimination. Her fans praised her beauty and flawless outfits, and felt that her one slip-up didn't justify sending her home. Others, however, feel that she spent the entire season coasting by on her looks without providing much else (though she did win the cheerleading challenge), and that her elimination was well-deserved due to her lackluster performance in both the tv pilot challenge and the lipsynch (and that's not even getting into her fight with Ru over her mask).

** [[spoiler:Valentina]]'s elimination in Season 9. [[spoiler: After never being in the bottom, the one time she has to lipsync is against Nina Bo'nina Brown, who had struggled the entire season. Valentina's runway look included a mask, which she refused to take off both during the lipsync and ''even when [=RuPaul=] stopped the music and asked her to''. She did eventually take it off, but it was immediately obvious she didn't know the words and gave up, being sent home.]] It's hard to think of another queen who fell from grace so quickly.
* ShockingSwerve: When the 3rd Season gets down to its final 4 competitors, [=RuPaul=] announces that spoiler: the judges will select a previously eliminated contestant to come back and compete.

* SeasonalRot: Season 7 (besides the new Untucked) is generally not as well-received as the previous seasons, with many citing the preponderance of team challenges (the most of any season thus far aside from All Stars) and that the show's started referencing itself ''too'' much rather than satirizing pop culture or the reality competition show format. Other people just think this particular season is a miss due to a lack of dynamic queen relationships, as there's been a serious void of any true rivalries (like Sharon and Phi Phi, or Alyssa and Coco), any deep friendships (like Raven and Jujubee, or Adore and Bianca), or a presence of a TeamMom (like Chad, Latrice, or, again Bianca).

** Season 9 has gotten a serious amount of flack for its poor editing. Much of the interactions among the queens before the challenges and with Ru in the workroom have been relegated to online exclusives, so the personalities of the queens don't really come through until way past midway through the season. Worse, certain episodes with team challenges concentrated purely on the losing team, making for cringe-worthy viewing experiences. The elimination of the mini-challenges hasn't been very well-received either.

** Cynthia Lee Fontaine returns to the competition in season 9, instantly dividing the fandom. Is it worth it? Should her spot have been given to a more "worthy" queen? Heaven help if you bring up her cancer diagnosis during/after season 8. Some fans have welcomed her return, but are aalready sick of her constant use of "cucu."

** Trinity Taylor from Season 9 for her arrogance and for being the shadiest queen in the season. Further worsened when she calls Valentina crazy for praying to the Virgin of Guadalupe for help in the workroom, which justifiably enraged the fanbase. As the season progressed, however, fans warmed up to her as a "bitch with a heart;" Valentina in particular notes that Trinity is really evil AND the nicest person.



** Trinity is getting this three episodes into season 9 for her shade. Par for the course, but then she calls Valentina crazy for praying to the Virgin of Guadalupe for help in the workroom. "Does anyone else hate Trinity?" became a meme shortly after.

** "You're perfect. You're beautiful. You look like Linda Evangelista. You're a model. Did you stone those tights? Oh, you're smiling! fhfskd. The judges eat her up every time. She could walk out there in a diaper and they would say 'Valentina! You're smile is beautiful!'"

** Lisa Kudrow's appearance in Season 9. At first, Ru's story of having run into her on the lot seems like a joke, but it quickly becomes clear that it's the truth.

** Eureka's incapability to shut up and incessant need to talk over everyone has earned her this status. She rudely interrupts the entire workroom with inappropriate "jokes," is incredibly defensive when called out, and refuses to apologize for any of it.
