Jaida Essence Hall, Gigi Goode and Crystal Methyd are the contenders vying for the crown on VH1's 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' In the reunion special episode, host-mentor RuPaul Andres Charles brought up the most-asked and important question of the week: Who will win the Season 12 race? While the queens kept it safe by taking names in a way that no one in the top three felt left out, fans have already zeroed in on one name and that is Jaida. 

Why should Jaida win?

She has it in her to win and if she does, she'll be a great winner and that's because there are certain qualities that make her stand out from her peers on the show. She is not someone who wallows in self-pity. Even when she has gone wrong and failed challenges, Jaida never sat on it for too long and was immediately off to prepare for what was next for her. 

She hardly ever doubts herself. And that, is a desirable attribute to have. Jaida has a strong fan base and the judges have always loved her. And that explains how and why she has managed three wins and an opportunity to captain a team. Also, she has only been in the bottom two once. Fans seem to echo the thoughts as they wait for the finale to air on VH1 next week. 

"IDGAF what anyone thinks #TeamJaida needs to win! Because what? She's a b***h for the b***hs !! Lmao #RuPaulsDragRace," a fan commented while another shared:  "If Jaida doesn’t win, I will set my television on fire #TeamJaida #RuPaulsDragRace." A user tweeted, "Jaida deserves that f**king crown #TeamJaida #DragRace." Another viewer seems to have already crowned Jaida the winner and has left no scope for speculation whatsoever.  "LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL THE WINNER OF SEASON 12 LOOKS. JAIDA E HALL FOR THE PEOPLE.  #DragRaceREUNITED #RuPaulsDragRace #DragRace."

However, there were neutral fans as well who thought everyone in the top three deserves the crown and that they'd be happy to see any one of them win. "I’d honestly be happy with @CrystalMethyd @jaidaehall or @thegigigoode winning!! It's probably one of the closest races the show has ever had in my opinion. Guess we will find out next week who wins the #RuPaulsDragRace," a user commented.

"tbh #TeamEveryone but at the same time #TeamJaida. like ill be so happy if any one of the top 3 wins (i love them all so much) but I'll be the happiest person ever if Jaida wins, you know? #DragRace," another posted. "My season 12 reunion thots: Jackie was the star and it’s what she deserves, nicky doll I love you, crown Jaida #dragrace," a fan expressed.

Catch the finale on Friday, May 29 on VH1.
