'RuPaul's Drag Race' Lets Viewers Pick the Winner! Here's Your Voter's Guide

Read our handy voter's guide to get the lowdown on the final three drag queens! Which diva deserves to win it all?

RuPaul's Drag Race, the breakout hit of the Logo network, combines the best elements of all reality shows into one fabulous package. The drag queen competition contains fashion challenges, like Project Runway; modeling challenges, like America's Next Top Model; musical performances, like American Idol (but with lip synching); and catty arguments, like Real Housewives.

Though the competition is judged weekly by RuPaul and a panel of celebrities, the ultimate winner is selected by viewers, just like Dancing with the Stars. And this season's Final Three showdown -- between drag queens Alaska, Jinkx Monsoon and Roxxy Andrews -- leaves America with a tough choice.

To help you pick the Season 5 drag queen who best represents your values, here's a handy voters guide!

Roxxxy Andrews

Real name: Michael Feliciano
Hometown: Orlando, Florida
Inspiring back story: Roxxxy was abandoned by her mother at a bus stop as a small child and grew up to become a successful beauty pageant queen.
Platform: Roxxxy wants to represent for the "thick, juicy girls;" a plus-size queen has yet to win the competition.
Greatest strength: The runway. Roxxxy's fashion sense is bold and beautiful, and she proved she can make an amazing gown out of anything -- even candy.
Greatest weakness: Comedy. Her inability to make people laugh has been a serious weakness throughout the competition, and her mean-girl attitude -- especially where the funny girls are concerned -- may lose her points with viewers.

Jinkx Monsoon

Real name: Jerick Hoffer
Hometown: Seattle, Washington
Inspiring back story: A narcoleptic drag queen raised by an alcoholic mother, Jinkx developed her unique drag personality to prove she could be a success on her own terms.
Platform: Definitely the underdog in this competition, Jinx wants to advocate for drag queens to bring their own unique quirks and talents to the table, no matter how unconventional they might be.
Greatest strength: Performance. Jinkx is the most entertaining of the queens; she can sing, dance, and pull out a hilarious character at a moment's notice.
Greatest weakness: Fashion. Because her characters are retro oddballs, Jinkx has never embraced the high-fashion aesthetic that RuPaul demands from her queens.

Alaska Thunderf**k

Real name: Justin Honard
Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Inspiring back story: Alaska auditioned for Drag Race, and was rejected, every year -- only to see her drag-queen boyfriend Sharon Needles get in on the first try and win the Season 4 crown. This year, she has finally stepped out of her shadow.
Platform: Alaska feels she's grown and changed the most over the course of the competition, and best embodies the spirit of excellence that America's Next Drag Superstar should have.
Greatest strength: Determination. Alaska has done well in comedy, fashion and performance competitions, though she hasn't been the single standout in any category.
Greatest weakness: Dancing and lip-synching. Ironically, Alaska's biggest handicap -- being Sharon's boyfriend -- has now become an asset, because everyone just wants them to be happy!
