Robbie Turner is the stage name of Jeremy Baird, an American drag performer from Seattle, Washington. She is one of 12 contestants to compete on the eighth season of RuPaul's Drag Race. Noted for her razor-sharp wit, Robbie's style is described by RuPaul as "classic sass," and by fellow contestants as "smart." She was affectionately referred to as "Robbie Turnter" by Ru and the judges and became a sort of 'big sister' character to other queens during the season. Robbie has developed a devoted following.

Baird was notable as one of the most frequent "talking heads" during the season - featuring in regular, witty between-scenes commentaries.
