Bookies genuinely think Honey G could win X Factor
Honey G has a real shot at winning X Factor, according to British bookmakers.
Despite being one of the most controversial X Factor contestants the show has ever seen, Honey has earned plenty of fans (including 50 Cent) and has never appeared in the bottom three or dance-off.
Now, it looks like Honey’s hard work is paying off – as bookies have cut odds on her winning the whole shebang. According to BoyleSports, she’s now the third favourite to win the competition after Emily Middlemas and Matt Terry.
BoyleSports dramatically reduced their odds on Honey G winning X Factor this week, from 12-1 outsider to 15-2.
Other bookies are following suite, with William Hill offering odds on 6-1 on the rapper emerging victorious this December.
It is the next step in what has been a long journey for Honey, whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford. The rapper was originally booted from the competition before the Judges’ Houses stage, but later returned as Ivy Grace Paredes was forced to leave the competition due to visa issues.
Celebrities and fans have been divided on the rapper, with big names such as Lily Allen labelling her act “offensive” and Boy George calling her “a joke”. Meanwhile, Grammy-award winning artist 50 Cent is a fan and Snoop Dog has promised to drop everything he has on for the chance to duet with Honey in an X Factor final.
Fans better start preparing for that Snoop Dog & Honey G duet now – because it doesn’t look that far away anymore.
