Bob The Drag Queen steps Behind The Rope. Season Eight Winner. Yes, THAT Bob The Drag Queen. Originally from the South, the son of a Mom who owned a Drag Bar (yup, we are completely jealous), Bob is here to tell it all. We start at the beginning - just how did Bob come up with the Iconic “Bob The Drag Queen” name. We discuss the legendary New York City Drag Scene where Bob got his start (shout out to Barracuda Lounge) coming up the ranks alongside fellow NYC and RuPaul’s Drag Race legends Peppermint and Bianca Del Rio. Bob fills us in on how and why he decided to join Drag Race, what his season was like, fellow Season Eight Queens, RuPaul, and who his favorite judge was - Carson, Michelle or Ross. Bob also discusses Drag Race Guest Judges Nicole Richie, Gigi Hadid, Debbie Harry, Marc Jacobs and Vivica A. Fox. Do tell. Bob does. Bob opens up about what winning Drag Race meant and how life changed as a result thereafter. How life changed includes many many projects confirming that Bob has had, and is having, a MAJOR moment since Drag Race ended. These projects include the phenomenal MTV Show “Drag My Dad”, The “Sibling Rivalry” Podcast with BFF and Drag Race All Stars Winner Monet X. Change, HBO’s First Ever NonScripted - and Emmy Nominated - Series “We’re Here” (Yup, it was just green lit for a second season) and the brand new comedy special Bob The Drag Queen: Live at Carolines.
