And then, there were four.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on Friday night for an all-new episode. This week, battling it out for the Top 4, Jackie Cox was eliminated. Even though fans are upset about it, they wondered if Jackie will take Sherry Pie's place in the finale since the latter was disqualified at the start of the season for catfishing. 

Last week we said goodbye to a fan-favorite contestant, Heidi N Closet after she lost 'the lip sync for your life' challenge against Jaida Essense Hall. That left, Jackie, Gigi Goode, Sherry, Crystal Methyd and Jaida as the Top 5 contestants. Back again this week, the queens had to perform a medley from 'RuPaul's Drag Race Live'.

With this being the last maxi challenge of the season, the queens went all out to impress the judges and gain a spot in the finale. Jackie also tried her best to impress the judges by showing her sexier side, but that clearly didn't work. For the final runway challenge, the theme this week was 'Eleganza Extravaganza'. Crystal donned a futuristic blue puffy dress, Gigi's runway look resembled an '80s nerd prom look, Jackie's outfit resembled the sweet girl-next-door with a little sass, Jaida looked strong and confident in her runway look, and as usual Sherry's look was edited out. 

When it came to revealing the results, Mama Ru revealed that Gigi won the challenge this week, making it her fourth win this season. Ending up in the bottom were Jackie and Crystal who have been fan favorites right from the start. Lip syncing to Jenifer Lopez's 'On the Floor' RuPaul Charles declared Cyrstal safe, eliminating Jackie. 

With Jackie gone, fans were upset. But now, the question is whether she will take the place of Sherry Pie since the latter had been disqualified from the season right before it could premiere because of her catfishing allegations. 

Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "Sooooo since Sherry is disqualified, are they going to do a Season 7 & 8 kinda thing where they just do a top 3 kinda gig or is Jackie gonna take that 4th spot?? #DragRace #qtna." While another added, "I’m still curious: Does Jackie come back, or do we get a top 3? #DragRace." 

"OK BUT CAN JACKIE TAKE THE PLACE OF SH*RRY PI* AT THE FINALE PLEASE IMAGINE THAT TOP FOUR I- #DragRace," a fan shared. Adding to that another said, "This is one of the best top 3’s in #DragRace herstory, but you’re know what was better than this top 3? This top 4. Bring Jackie Cox back pls." 

"Me waiting for world of wonder to tweet that Jackie is taking sherrys spot #DragRace," a fan added.
