Fifteen queens entered the workroom of RuPaul’s Drag Race this season to compete for the crown. But which one will walk away victorious? Each week, Billboard will rank each of the remaining queens based on their performances on the show to determine who has the best shot at the crown. Follow Billboard Pride on Twitter and Facebook for updated leaderboards each week.


Last week, the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race were tasked with taking six of their eliminated sisters and dragging them up into familial drag looks for this season’s makeover challenge. Brooke Lynn Hytes took home her third win for creating a stunning sister in Plastique Tiara. But two queens, Silky Nutmeg Ganache and Nina West, found themselves in the bottom, lip syncing to TLC’s smash-hit “No Scrubs.” After what RuPaul deemed a “meh” performance from the girls, Silky was allowed to stay, while Nina packed her things.

Next week, the queens will compete in their final runway challenge when they write, record and dance to their own verses of RuPaul’s “Queens Everywhere,” before finding out which four queens will earn their spot in the finale.

5. Silky Nutmeg Ganache (last week: 4)

Last week was proof that in this competition, your track record isn’t going to save you. Silky wound up in the bottom after a rough performance, and her lip syncing skills were, as RuPaul so aptly put it, “Meh.” She may have two wins to boast, but Silky is going to have to buckle down and work her ass off this week if she wants to make it to the finale.

4. Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (last week: 6)

Vanjie had a great week last week, and we are absolutely thrilled for her. But she has a very difficult episode ahead of her — Vanjie is the only remaining queen who has not won a challenge, and even though her lip syncing and dancing skills are top-notch, she will have more to prove than any of the other girls. She wouldn’t be the first queen to make it to the finale with no wins (Jujubee did it back in season two), but the odds are stacked against her, still.

3. Yvie Oddly (last week: 5)

Despite a few stumbles over the last few weeks, it’s become pretty clear that Yvie Oddly will be sashaying her way into the finale of the competition. With one main challenge win, and a LOT of high placements, Yvie deserves to lip sync for the crown, despite the fact that many of her sisters voted for her to go home last week. Yvie’s going nowhere, and with those lip syncing skills, we can’t wait to see how it turns out.

2. A’Keria C. Davenport (last week: 3)

She may have started off shaky, but Ms. A’Keria has proven time and time again that she has the fashion sense, the talent, and the drive necessary to become a winner. There’s no doubt she’ll make her way to the finale, and she has a good shot at snatching that crown, too.

1. Brooke Lynn Hytes (last week: 1)

In the words of the very wise Aja, “she could walk out there in a f---ing diaper,” and Brooke Lynn Hytes would still make it to the finale, and possibly even win the whole competition. Brooke has three wins under her belt, a sickening set of lip syncing skills and some of the most snatched fashion of the season. There is absolutely no doubt that Brooke Lynn, and we’re even going to predict that she’ll make it to the season’s final lip sync for the crown. If not, well, that would really be the gag of the season.
