Meet the Latin@ Contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5
Jon | On 28, Jan 2013
RuPaul’s Drag Race premiered Monday night on Logo and among this season’s 14 contestants are five Latin@s competing for the crown.
Monday night viewers met 21-year-old Panama native Serena ChaCha who is the baby drag of the show. “This is the best quinceañera ever!” ChaCha said as he met the other contestants.
“I was born and raised in the republic of Panana,” ChaCha said while putting on his make-up. “It’s one of the number one retirement homes for Americans, you should consider it,” he told another Queen who was arguing with him.
“Not if they are all like you,“ replied Vivenne Pinay.
37-year-old Coco Montrese performs six nights a week as Janet Jackson in Las Vegas, but will that be enough to be the next Queen? Contestants had to perform for an underwater photo shoot on the first episode and after he finished he told his fellow contestants, “Someone forgot to tell them that black people don’t swim. Thank god I’m Dominican.”
The third Latin contestant is Lineysha Spark, 24, from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
“Lineysha is the Puerto Rican Papi” said Coco during the show.
Lineysha designed a stunning dress that was overlooked for the immunity award.
Roxxxy Andrews (Michael Feliciano) represents Orlando, Florida and is an experienced pageant girl.
He always seems to have a smile on his face and we’ll have to wait and see whether his experience will pay off as he competes for the crown.
Monica Beverly Hillz (Juan DeJesus Anaya)moved from Chicago to Kentucky, but will her street smarts from Chicago help in the competition?
