'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Leslie Jones was episode's saving grace and fans want her as permanent judge
We need a petition to get Leslie Jones as a permanent judge on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and fans totally agree.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on March 20 night for an all-new episode. Apart from the drama and battle between the queens, the highlight of this week was Leslie Jones and her infectious fangirling commentary and happiness we witnessed.
Last week, we said goodbye to Dhalia after she was booted out from the competition. Dhalia was the first contestant to get eliminated this season. She deserved to get booted after she performed poorly in the maxi challenge and lip sync for the life challenge.
Back again this week, we were disappointed to see Rock M Sakura get eliminated instead of Aiden Zhane, who did nothing but be lethargic throughout the maxi challenge. That said, fans are grateful for one thing this wee, and that was having the former SNL star as a guest judge on the show.
If Leslie Jones tells you to throw away your shoes, you LISTEN! 😂 @lesdoggg @thewidowvondu #DragRace pic.twitter.com/fijlAt7edH— RuPaul's Drag Race (@RuPaulsDragRace) March 21, 2020
So far, we have had three celebrities appear as guest judges this season since it premiered but the one who tops them all was Jones. She was the original star this week. Sitting among RuPaul and the other judges, she served the best commentary of the night and didn't shy away.
She also had the time of her life, laughing and having fun with the other judges as the queens sashayed down the runway with their looks. Watching her have fun during the episode is all we needed to lift our spirits up.
Taking to Twitter, fans now want to see Leslie as a permanent judge on the series. "Excuse me can Leslie Jones be a permanent judge #DragRace," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "Petition to have Leslie Jones as a regular judge on every Drag Race episode from now on."
