'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Heidi N Closet eliminated, upset fans say she was 'one of the good ones'
It was an evening filled with mixed emotions for fans on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12. While fans were rejoicing that Crystal Methyd received her first challenge win this season, they were also upset with Heidi N Closet getting eliminated.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on Friday night for an all-new episode. The remaining 6 queens entered the workroom ready to battle another week for a chance to be America's next drag superstar. Last week we didn't get to see an elimination as Mama Ru revealed that both Heidi N Closet and Jackie Cox who were in the bottom were safe after the lipsync battle.
But this week, we couldn't escape another elimination as the competition got tougher than ever. This week for their maxi challenge, the contestants had to create their very own one-woman show. Whoopi Goldberg was the guest judge. The queens could choose if they wanted to perform their sketch as themselves, or multiple characters.
While the sketch worked for Jackie Cox and Crystal Methyd, it wasn't a good week for the rest, especially Heidi N Closet. Heidi tried to impress the judges with the Nutty Professor style comedy sketch, but sadly it backfired and didn't work. She tried to play the role of all her relatives, but the judges weren't impressed.
She was in the bottom two with Jaida Essence Hall and had to battle it out in the lipsync for life challenge. But sadly, it wasn't Heidi's night as the contestant was eliminated. It was sad to see the drag queen sashay away since she was talented.
Taking to Twitter, upset fans claim they will miss Heidi. "I’m gonna miss her soft and supple ass. No one does confessionals like Heidi #DragRace," a fan wrote. Adding to that another fan said, "@HeidiNCloset was one of the good ones #heidi #DragRace will miss you."
"ON THE OTHER HAND - I am DEVASTATED that Heidi is gone... #DragRace," a fan shared. While another added, "I’m still not over Heidi going home, if Michelle had her way sherry would have been in the bottom I'm so pissed #DragRace."
"Me not watching the rest of S12 because Heidi is gone #dragrace," a fan said. Another fan added, "I cried when Heidi gets eliminated she looked so sad #DragRace #heidi #misscongeniality."
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 airs every Friday night on Vh1. Check your local listings for more information.
