We’re only a third of the way through “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 12, but already a favorite to win the crown has emerged: Gigi Goode. So far this 22-year-old queen from Los Angeles has won two challenges and received high marks in two others, a record that is only matched by She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. If the grand finale was filmed today, Gold Derby readers believe that Gigi would be named the winner by host RuPaul Charles.
Gigi currently has leading 5/2 odds to win the season, with her closest competitors being Jackie Cox (82/25 odds), Jaida Essence Hall (4/1 odds) and Widow Von’Du (6/1 odds). The “Drag Race” Hall of Fame is already home to such iconic champions as Bianca Del Rio (Season 6), Trixie Mattel (All Stars 3) and Yvie Oddly (Season 11), and Gigi is definitely “goode” enough to join them.
Gigi Goode is proving to be a challenge beast on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” winning “The Ball Ball” (sports looks challenge) in Episode 4 and “Snatch Game” (celebrity impersonation challenge) in Episode 6. In fact, the only queens to beat her so far have been Widow Von’Du for “I’m That Bitch” (rap-inspired challenge) in Episode 1 and Sherry Pie for both “World’s Worst” (improv talent challenge) in Episode 3 and “Gay’s Anatomy” (over-acting challenge) in Episode 5.
To compare, last year’s winner Yvie Oddly had only won a single challenge by this point of Season 11, so Gigi Goode is definitely on the right track.
