If there’s any proof of RuPaul’s
Drag Race’s success, it’s the careers that have unfolded offscreen. Season
five winner Jinkx Monsoon starred in the celebrated Off-Broadway cabaret show The Vaudevillians, while the year’s
previous winner, Sharon Needles, as well as many other contestants, have
launched musical careers. Season six winner Bianca Del Rio has gone on to share
the screen with Alan Cumming and the most recent winner, Bob the Drag Queen,
landed an Axe commercial following his coronation in May.
