Vanessa Mateo
SAT JUN 15th

Vanessa “Vanjie” Mateo appeared on Seasons Nine and Ten of Rupaul’s Drag Race. After being the first queen eliminated from season Nine, Vanjie’s iconic exit from the mainstage catapulted her into the limelight and led to her being invited back for season ten. Known for her spunky attitude, Vanessa is one of the most popular first-eliminated contestants.

Keeping with the momentum of her popularity, Vanessa released a single titled “I’m Vanjie” in 2018. Since then, she has also appeared in Iggy Azalea’s music video “Sally Walker.”

I’ve grown so much since the show and I continue growing with my aesthetic. I’m learning more about myself and who I am as a drag queen…I just gotta be myself. So, I’ve been embracing more of that. Overall I get inspired by a lot of things. I get inspired by my mother, who’s raised three boys on her own. Strong women who are opinionated and will tell you what’s what. Y’all gonna meet my mama and y’all gonna know what I meant. She’s where Vanessa comes from
