Yvie Oddly is the stage name of Jovan Bridges, a drag queen, fashion designer, performer, rapper, and recording artist and the winner of Season 11 of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Yvie returned in the first episode of All Stars 5 as a "Lip-Sync Assassin", to lip-sync against India Ferrah representing the safe queens' elimination choice. Yvie won the lip-sync and revealed the group chose to eliminate Derrick Barry.

Yvie came back to appear in RuPaul's Drag Race Vegas Revue, where she was followed as she prepared to lead the "RuPaul's Drag Rave Live!" residency show among other queens.

Name Origin

Yvie Oddly's name was inspired by people calling her performances weird, and so she wanted a name that was "even odder than everybody else's" to match.

Denver's "commodity of drag oddity," Yvie Oddly bucked what she thinks is a "boring local drag scene" and brought conceptual artistry into the mix. Self-described as tall and weird, Oddly draws inspiration from fashion brands like Mugler, as well as non-conventional drag artists like Christeene. Yvie is all about the hustle and is not afraid of taking the "scrappiest, dirtiest, most back road option and making it work." Known for bringing her brain to the table, Yvie made jaws hit the floor during the competition.

Yvie was one of the final four queens of the season and was the first to make it to the "Grand Finale" which aired on May 30th, 2019. Despite only winning one challenge, Yvie's impressive track record, unique interpretation of drag, quirky personality and jaw-dropping lip sync skills helped win her the crown and title of "America's Next Drag Superstar", beating off Brooke Lynn Hytes, A'keria Chanel Davenport and Silky Nutmeg Ganache in the finale lip sync tournament.

Style

Yvie describes herself as an "authentic weirdo" whose style ranges from high fashion glam goddess to dirty street punk. She loves anything that is going to shock the audience. Yvie states she is always changing and "looking in the future" which makes her drag very unique.

Entrance Quote

"Move over ladies, this race just took an odd turn."
