Alexis Mateo

Real name: TBA
Age: 30
Hometown: St. Petersburgh, Florida

Alexis Mateo is a native of Puerto Rico and currently resides in St. Petersburgh, Florida. In this season, she is one of the Puerto Rican Latina Queens.

Carmen Carrera

Real name: Christopher Ullman
Age: 25
Hometown: Elmwood Park, NJ

Cocky and confident, Carmen Carrera loves being sexy and promises to show more skin than any other queen on the show by wearing least amount of clothing. She dares you to discover a flaw on her figure.

Delta Work

Real name: Gabriel Villarreal
Age: 34
Hometown: Nowalk, CA

Busty and striking, Delta Work is from California who is skillful at celebrity impersonations and assassinations. She is working hard to prove that size is not important but a number on her way to snatch the only trophy matters.

India Ferrah

Real name: Shane Richardson
Age: 23
Hometown: Dayton, Ohio

India Ferrah depicts herself as “sexy and glamorous diva” as well as she is even an entrepreneur, with an eBay site that sells clothes and wigs for other queens. There is only one problem with India Ferrah i.e. performance anxiety, so let’s see will Miss India Ferrah overcome in this season?

Manila Luzon

Real name: Karl Westerberg
Age: 25
Hometown: New York, NY

Manila Luzon declared herself as a funny girl and also “beautiful, creative, and maybe a little intoxicating”. She has a massive connection to Drag Race since her boyfriend is Season Two contestant Sahara Davenport. She has a mouth on her and she’s not scared to use it.


Real name: Elijah Kelly
Age: 29
Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia

Mariah is a Ballroom Queen who competes in the Ballroom and considered (or considers herself) as one of the well-known performers. She is on a mission to prove that she’s more than just a beautiful face with her whip-like smartness and a body built similar to a racehorse.


Real name: Brian Trapp
Age: 29
Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia

Phoenix who belongs to the Atlanta’s House of Brooks combines a merge of edgy and glamorous. She is determined to go ahead of Atlanta queens that have come and gone before her with her icy, occasionally androgynous flair.


Real name: Sutan Amrull
Age: 36
Hometown: Los Angeles, California

Striking and edgy, Raja is not a clown queen but a model. For twenty years she has been doing drag, and with her fierce strut and eye-popping way she is setting the runway on fire.

Mimi Imfurst

Real name: Braden Chapman
Age: 27
Hometown: New York, NY

Mimi Imfurst is determined to place a new trend as she is sick and tired of the appealing, fishy girls forever grabbing the crown. Her style is “one part Dolly Parton, two parts Miss Piggy, a little Bette Midler and a lot of glitter and rhinestones.” Also she considers that if you’re not over the top, then you’ll never spot the other side.

Venus D-Lite

Real name: Adam Guerra
Age: 26
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Venus D-Lite is a Southern California girl who is a great competitor since she will do anything it takes to get to the top and to prove it she has the plastic surgery scars. She is “edgy, flirty, and bitchy” and also the youngest member of “The Dream Girls Review.”

Stacy Layne Matthews

Real name: TBA
Age: 25
Hometown: Back Swamp, North Carolina

Stacy Layne Matthews is a true Southern lady who prefers actually singing live instead of lipsynch. She is one Back Swamp queen that swims with some big city fish so let’s see will her lack of confidence cause her to sink?

Yara Sofia

Real name: Gabriel Burgos Ortiz
Age: 26
Hometown: Manati, Puerto Rico

Wacky, funky and fearless, diva Yara Sofia is full of eagerness. With her edgy glamour and charm she gives her competitors a run for their money. Regrettably her accent is very much thick so she may have a hard time with some of the challenges.
