'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Heidi gets eliminated but fans think Gigi or Sherry should have exited show
This week the top six queens had to write and perform a one-woman show. They had to either play themselves or other characters. Fans weren't very happy with the outcome
Another week of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 and another week of Gigi Goode and Sherry Pie staying safe with mediocre performances.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on Friday night for an all-new episode. This week the top six queens had to write and perform a one-woman show. They had to either play themselves or other characters, but at the end of the episode, we witnessed one fan-favorite queen sashay away.
Last week we witnessed the queens give superfans a makeover, head to toe. Luckily none of them were eliminated, as RuPaul revealed all six of them advanced to the next round.
Back again this week, the episode was full of surprises. While we one would've assumed that the queens aced the episode, there were more than a few who didn't meet the mark this week.
The ones who did included Jackie Cox and Crystal Methyd. Crystal also won her first maxi challenge this week. Now on to the not-so-good ones that include Jaida Essence Hall, Heidi N Closet, Gigi Goode and Sherry Pie.
Heidi tried to enact her one-woman show in a Nutty Professor way but failed to impress the judges. Gigi seemed like she rehearsed too much for her flight attendant sketch and as for Jaida, she decided to base her sketch on the incident where she peed on her boyfriend.
While this would've been funny in other circumstances, the queens didn't deliver.
In the end, RuPaul revealed that Jaida and Heidi were in the bottom deeming Gigi and Sherry safe. After lipsyncing for life, Heidi was the one to sashay away this week. Taking to Twitter, fans weren't happy with the outcome and felt it should've been either Gigi or Sherry in the bottom.
"Gigi and Sherry should have been the bottom two #DragRaceAllStars #dragrace #RuPaulsDragRace @RuPaulShow jussayin," a fan said. Another added, "SHERRY WENT OVER 5 MINUTES! GIGI WAS MEH! Once again, RuPaul favors white queens over queens of color. #DragRace."
"Okay yes I’m very angry. Sherry and Gigi safe. Freal. Not having ittttt. Yay Crystal though," a fan shared. Another fan wrote, "Why do Gigi and Sherry get the chance to mess up multiple times and not land in the bottom once???? #DragRace."
"Sorry Sherry or Gigi should’ve been in the bottom. #DragRace," a fan added. Another fan said, "Sherry literally should have been in the bottom! This is nonsense. Gigi cheated. I am disgusted! #DragRace."
"What, we can't ever put Gigi or Sherry in the bottom? Over this and so sad to see my wonderful @HeidiNCloset leave," a fan wrote.
