Meet Gigi Goode: ‘The Life Size Doll’ | RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12


– Good morning, my name is Gigi Goode. I’m 21 years old from
Los Angeles, California. (upbeat music) So my drag name, Gigi Goode,
comes from my last name, which I’m not gonna give that away, but it’s spelled with two Gs in it. And then Goode comes from season three of “American Horror Story”. Jessica Lange’s character, Fiona Goode. So that was coming out,
like, right as I was kind of starting drag, which is fierce. I started drag when I was 15 years old at substance-free venues that
doubled as indoor rock walls. So needless to say, there
wasn’t too much going on there, so, I was, like, half bedroom queen, half rock wall girl. You know those fashion illustrations that are on, like, clothing patterns? Gigi Goode is that, but with, like, no concept of direction or basic math. And so that’s probably the best
way I can describe my drag. Pretty much 90 percent of
the time, Gigi Goode is lost, and, you know, is completely delusional. But the other 10 percent of the time she’s all about fashion,
she loves to perform. Can’t touch my toes, so don’t
catch me doing any of that. But all my performance is in my mouth. (upbeat music) My favorite part of
drag is wearing clothes. Well, it’s my favorite part
of living in the world. I’m my own goddamn Barbie doll. That’s all I had to entertain myself when I was, you know,
age one to last year, so I just have been treating
myself like a life size doll, and it is just a dream come true, like, I’m getting paid for this? The biggest misconception about me is that I’m just a look queen. Everyone started drag once, and I was most certainly not
a look queen when I started. I have so much more depth in me. I can be funny, I can dance, I can sing, I can, like, do all this crazy (beep), but I don’t want to just be
pigeonholed into a look queen, which, I am. My biggest fashion influence is my mother. She’s a costume designer. She makes every single thing that I wear. She made this today, actually,
right before I got to set, so, yeah, love that girl. I am the proudest mama’s
boy you’re ever gonna meet. I can’t wait for you to meet my mom. You’re gonna (beep) love her. I think I’m extremely
competitive, but with myself. So, you know, there could be
a hundred people in a room, I’m just kidding, I’m not gonna do that. Internally, I’m extremely competitive. I one up myself from the
past week, the week before. I have found so many
different skills within myself through drag, that I think if drag as
an art form didn’t exist, I would be, like, a brick. Like I would have, like,
literally nothing to me. (laughs) There have been a lot of girls trudging through this here camp RuPaul, and I can say with a lot of confidence that you will never have seen
a queen like me on the show. This being my first time auditioning is exactly why I got on. I have so much versatility. I’m America’s next drag superstar because I encompass every single thing that America’s next drag superstar is. I’m the look, I’m the
performance, I’m the humor, I am over 5’8″ and, you know,
what else can you offer? (upbeat music)
