Self-described as "Seattle's Premier Jewish Narcoleptic Drag Queen", Jinkx Monsoon (real name Jerrick Hoffer) is an American Drag Performer, Singer, Actor, and Comedian. He graduated summa cum laude with a degree in theatrical performance from Cornish College in Seattle, Washington. Influenced by a grandmother with charm school polish, Jerick learned to combine the sophistication of a southern belle with the crass behavior of a working girl. Jinkx Monsoon is all about contrasts and what RuPaul describes as "a stage left, off center kind of quality." With ten years experience on stage, Monsoon is a seasoned Portland-born entertainer who has captured the attention of his native northwest region. She is the winner on the fifth season of Rupaul's Drag Race.

Fans of the show have praised her greatly for her portrayal of "Little Edie" from Grey Gardens on the show's celebrity impersonation challenge, "The Snatch Game". Monsoon also holds the record for most consecutive weeks being in the top, at 8 weeks. On May 10, 2013, Monsoon was named the Season 5 winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, winning the title of "America's Next Drag Superstar." The creation of Jinkx was complicated. "From the movie Death Becomes Her, I was inspired by the crazy extent vain women will go for eternal youth, beauty, and power," Monsoon explains.

"Through Lucille Ball I saw how a woman can bring you to tears with laughter with nothing more than a look. Through the Disney villains I was raised with, I saw how powerful a woman can be, and yet so deliciously evil. And through my mom, I saw not only the trials and tribulations a single mother faces every day, but also the strength and determination a woman can possess when she is trying to provide a bright future for her children."
