Crystal Methyd finally won her first challenge and fans said it was long overdue and the queen deserved the victory.  

'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on Friday night and this week the Top 6 queens battled for a chance to make it to the Top 5. With Whoopi Goldberg as the guest judge this evening, the queens had to put on a one-woman show. They could either perform as themselves or portray multiple other characters. 

Last week, there was no elimination after RuPaul Charles revealed that both Jackie Cox and Heidi N Closet were safe. Back again this week, we said goodbye to Heidi after she didn't perform well during the maxi challenge. Neither did she step up to the judge's expectations during the lipsync for life battle against Jaida Essence Hall. 

Heidi's elimination was disappointing but not surprising as the queen had been at the bottom for the past couple of weeks. Though it was sad to see Heidi sashay away, fans rejoice as Crystal Methyd finally got the win she deserved. 

Crystal won the judges' heart during the maxi challenge as she played the character of a male exotic dancer and taught the crowd some smooth moves. It was the most entertaining sketch compared to the other five queens who performed. 

Without a doubt, Mama Ru revealed that Crystal won the challenge this week. This marks Crystal's first win this season and fans couldn't help but rejoice. 

Taking to Twitter, a fan said, "finally  U DESERVED IT AFTER ALL YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH #DragRace." Adding to that another fan said, "Crystal Methyd we are so very proud of you #DragRace."

"Tonight’s #dragrace made me feel both ends of the spectrum - sad for Heidi but super happy for crystal," a fan wrote. While another said, "I'm so glad Crystal finally got her win though! Much deserved! #DragRace." 

"#DragRace #RPDR @CrystalMethyd Crystal Methyd winning her 1st Maxi challenge of the season," a fan shared.

Another fan added, "Crystal walking into the finale after getting that last chance win securing her spot at the top with a real chance at the crown!! #DragRace #RuPaulsDragRace @CrystalMethyd." 

"Crystal Methyd finally got what she deserved #dragrace," a fan wrote.
