‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 9: Predicting The Top 3 After Episode 3

Three Episodes Into Drag Race And We May Have A Frontrunner!

The gayest (greatest) show on television is having quite the ninth season. ‘Rupaul’s Drag Race‘ started the season off with a Lady Gaga themed premiere before bringing back a former contestant and really starting the race. These last two episodes have struggled to keep up the magnitude of the premiere but one thing is really shining through…

The Season 9 Queens!

Drag Race


This season of ‘Rupaul’s Drag Race‘ has one of the most diverse & intriguing set of competitors in years. Every corner of the mainstream drag community is featured with a few stars representing the underbelly as well. After episode 3, it became even more apparent that this season has superstars. But which of these queens will make it to the finale in hopes of snatching the crown?

Top 3 Predictions:

More so than past seasons, trying to pick a clear winner or even the top 3 is hard. There’s so many factors that go into the decision and still so many episodes ahead but some queens are starting to jump ahead.

Honorable Mentions:

Drag Race
– As of now, Valentina has not slipped up once. And by the looks of things, it doesn’t seem like it will happen anytime soon. Something about that charming smile and killer fashion makes Valentina an easy fit for the top 3.

Cynthia Lee Fontaine:
Drag Race
– The comeback queen! Cynthia Lee Fontaine A.K.A. Miss Cucu came back to Drag Race with a fiery passion. After a rather weak outing in Season 8, Cynthia is over her battle with cancer and is ready to be “American’s Next Drag Superstar”.

Nina Bo’Nina Brown:
Drag Race
– One of the true drag artist to ever grace the runway. Nina Bo’Nina Brown is outspoken and brash but still so very humble. Nina uses makeup like no one on the show has done before but still remains an accessible choice.

Winning Prediction:


-She’s the full package…no pun intended. Everything you want in a queen is what Valentina possesses. There’s charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent but it’s also notable that Valentina is the sweetest competitor ever! Almost every aspect of a top drag queen (comedy, glamour, edginess) is here. Now, all she must do is keep it up till the finale.

Do you agree with my top 3 predictions?
