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

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 isn't afraid of taking the "scrappiest, dirtiest, most back road option and making it work." Known for bringing her brain to the table, Yvie is expected to make jaws hit the floor during the competition.


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 and make their jaw drop to the floor. Yvie states she is always changing and "looking in the future" which makes her drag the most unique and best fit for the title of America's Next Best Drag Superstar.

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