Title of production: RuPaul’s Drag Race (World of Wonder/LOGO)

Objective: To discover America’s next drag superstar.

How long have you been in the business? We are going into our fifth season of the show.

How many auditions have there been? I’ve seen just under a thousand submissions for RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Who have been some of your most noteworthy discoveries? Sharon Needles, Raja, Chad Michaels, Raven, Pandora Box, JuJubee, Manila Luzon, Willam, and Latrice Royale.

What makes you a great host? Charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.

Whose opinions do you trust most when evaluating new talent? I trust my gut.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job, and what are the most difficult? The most rewarding part is introducing these brilliant, courageous queens to the rest of the world. The show airs in 25 different countries and my girls perform all over the globe. The most difficult is saying “sashay away” to a contestant after she lip-synchs for her life. 

Was there anyone who nurtured you in the beginning?  I discovered myself.

Who are some of your favorite stars, past and present? Cher, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Kylie Minogue, Mo’Nique, and Beyoncé.

What’s your personal motto? If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love someone else?
