Slowly but surely, season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race coming to an end. One of the top seeds this season, Jaida Essence Hall, has been in the last two this week. One of his co-stars, Jackie Cox, went out and apologized on Twitter after a disagreement they had about this week’s challenge.

Leader Jaida Essence Hall Had a Bad Week

In the final episode before the reveal of who will be in the finale, the last five queens have participated in a solo comedy challenge. Cox won the mini-challenge of the week, which was the return of the classic puppet roast.

Cox was responsible for choosing the order of the comedy show. None of the queens wanted to go last, many asking to go after Cox, who wanted to be first, or in the middle. After no one seemed to want to go last, Hall was forced to go to the last box.

The challenge did not go too well for Hall, who was a favorite in the competition. She is tied with Gigi Goode for having won the most challenges to date (three) and has won the last two challenges. Sherry Pie went just before Hall and her routine lasted 17 minutes, which was well beyond the five-minute limit.

All this combined with the fact that Hall’s one-woman show was not well received, it is also clear that the favorite would find himself in lip sync for his life for the first time.

Viewers think Jackie Cox was wrong

When RuPaul asked Hall if she had chosen to go last, she replied that she did not want to go last and was put there by Cox. It was a great discussion during Untucked as Cox thought she was thrown under the bus and blamed for Hall’s performance. And although Hall said she would go last because no one else wanted her, viewers universally seemed to be on Hall’s side. Most viewers grew up while Hall agreed to be the last show, she did not necessarily volunteer or was happy with it.

“I’m sorry but Jackie shouldn’t be angry and Jaida HAS NOT VOLUNTEERED. jackie will go home the next time miss jaida comin for blood, ” says a fan.

Many people thought that Cox was trying to make a problem out of something that didn’t have to be a big deal. “Jackie literally starts a problem when she is the one who gave Jaida last place in my eyes. I think Jackie and Sherry did it on purpose to remove Jaida from the competition just in my opinion observing that they are trying to take some time off “this black queen and it will not work,” another viewer tweeted.

Others also believe that Hall was targeted, with one person saying“Jackie really went to sit there and lie like that. YOU suggested Jaida be the last and she was like anything, but nobody wanted to go last. And let’s be honest Jackie, you moved it because it was great last week. “

Someone else accused Cox of lighting the gas, Tweeter, “I’m sorry Jackie Cox, but Jaida didn’t sign up for the last time, and you assigned her to her, not here for this gas light. “

Jackie Cox apologizes at Jaida Essence Hall

After the episode aired, Cox went to Twitter to discuss the situation and also apologize to his fellow coworker and castmate.

She tweeted, “I clearly remembered our conversation in the work room and @jaidaehall did not volunteer to go last! And ESPECIALLY with what the performer before she did, she REALLY shouldn’t have waited that long! Jaida, I’m sorry, girl. In another tweet, she said, “I look like a total idiot in my interviews because I remember you said” I’ll go last “, but it was clearly on my mind. So now I feel completely stupid. Anyway, I’m sorry. “

Hall responded by saying, “Lol, this is drag and we take care of so many things in one day, it’s hard to follow. I still love you. “

RuPaul’s Drag Race is broadcast on Friday on VH1.
