MILWAUKEE — You can catch Milwaukee's own Jaida Essence Hall on the 12th season of "RuPaul's Drag Race."

Hall is one of 13 contestants hoping to earn the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar."

"I'm funny, I'm cute, I got some nice stuff, you know I'm living my best life and I have a personality," Hall said in a promo video for the show's 13th season.

And you can see that personality shine during her performance at a Milwaukee Bucks game last season.

"I'm showing right now a side of Milwaukee that you have not seen on the show, but baby keep in tune, this is going to be something that you're going to love as well," said Hall.

We're not sure if she'll need to "lip sync for her life," but hopefully RuPaul won't tell her to "sashay away" anytime soon.

"I am here to win this competition. I would not have auditioned, or tried out, or wanted to be in this competition if I did not feel like I had what it takes to win," said Hall.

The 12th season of "RuPaul's Drag Race" begins on Feb. 28 on VH1.
