RuPaul's Drag Race (AS9)

I think enough time has passed to officially put Jaida in the top tier of winners. A fountain of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
FUQ a recency-bias, she's firmly in my Top 3 all-time winners now. Everything about her and her trajectory on the show just spoke to me.

We never got a forced "I'm not good enough" archetypical reality storyline that Drag Race likes to beat into some contestants' heads.

Ms Excellence Hall knew she was that bitch from the moment she stepped onto the set, and she was just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up. Even when she "stumbled" (which arguably wasn't her fault), she still remained faultless (See: Her Bottom 2 lipsync).

Tl;dr: Stan Jaida absolutely every night xo

What was also iconic and a bit of a scream was how much the other girls seemed to realize this too! I remember in the BUILD group interview multiple queens talked about how Jaida helped them with different aspects of their drag. Truly a generous queen!
 
My boyfriend speaks very highly of Tina Burner. She was always at the drag brunch he'd visit when on work trips to NYC so hopefully she follows through on her potential on the show.
