'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Gigi Goode deserved to be in the bottom and not Jackie Cox, say fans
Fans said Gigie deserved to be in the bottom two, not Jackie
Another week of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and another week with Gigi Goode being safe. Now, fans are outraged. 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned for episode 9 on Friday night. This week's episode was titled, 'Choices 2020', and we witnessed the drag queens all battle it out in a presidential debate to see who will be America's first drag president.
While there were queens like Jaida Essence Hall and Heidi N Closet who aced the debate with their humor and wit, there were a few who didn't meet the guest judges, Jeff Goldblum and Rachel Bloom's expectations. They included Jackie Cox, Widow Von'Du and Gigi Goode. These three drag queens found them in the bottom three.
Gigi and Widow were in the bottom three last week as well, but RuPaul Charles saved Gigi while Widow was saved after she won the lipsync battle against Jan Sport. Back again this week, the two found themselves in the bottom three once again.
Gigi's performance during the debate mostly relied on her old robot trick, but it turned out to be abysmal. But she was saved once again thanks to her runway look. Which left Widow Von'Du and Jackie Cox in the bottom two battling out in the lipsync for life challenge.
Taking to Twitter after the episode, fans affirm that Gigie deserved to be in the bottom two, not Jackie. "I love me some Gigi but at this point I’m getting tired of the period costumes. Jackie and Widow clearly slayed that runway. #DragRace," a fan said.
"Gigi being safe and Jackie being in the bottom was straight bullshiiiit #DragRace," a fan shared. Adding to that another fan wrote, "lowkey gigi should have been in the bottom over jackie #DragRace."
"Up until now I have always agreed with the judges' choices but saving Gigi this episode instead of Jackie really showed some favoritism and that the show is rigged #DragRace," a fan added. While another said, "Real talk Gigi should’ve been in the bottom 2 tonight over Jackie #DragRace."
"See this competition is rigged so GiGi can win....Jackie should not have been in the bottom. Smh RuPaul has a type....just sayin #dragrace," a fan said. Another fan wrote, "1) Jaida amazed me yet again and deserves to win in my heart 2) Gigi deserved to be in the bottom instead of Jackie, y’all can fight me idc #DragRace."
