Some of us have been watching RuPaul’s Drag Race since the very first episode, while others didn’t catch on until more recent seasons. You might not remember the first time you watched Drag Race, but you all know the first queen from the series that you were obsessed with.
And the Season 10 stars are no different. Scroll through below to see who the girls from this season revealed to be the first Drag Race queen they were obsessed with.
Personally, we would have said Tammie Brown, but to each queen their own.
Nina flowers. I was really obsessed with the way she painted her face and the hairpieces she chose were all very different. And her fashion sense was very unique.
Probably Raja. Everything about her is so fabulous, obviously. But because she stayed true to her art form. She found a perfect balance between selling herself on the show, and on the road afterwards, but also stayed true to who she was aesthetically. I really admire and respect that.
Blair St. Clair
Manila Luzon without a doubt. I love her edginess. She was really polished, funny and witty. Everything about her. She was really one of the first queens that stuck out to me.
Dusty Ray Bottoms
Raja. Her fashion, her beauty. The way her drag was so androgynous and so extravagant at the same time really inspired me.
Delta Work for sure because she was a big girl who wasn’t afraid to be fashion forward. She had her sh*t together, she always looked good head to toe. That’s one of the things I try to pride myself on and I learned that from her.
Kalorie Karbdashian Williams
Roxxxy Andrews, hands down. She’s the queen of thick and juicy and I’m all about being thick and juicy!
Raja. She’s ethereal, very statuesque and beautiful, when I’m trying to serve looks I look to Raja for inspiration.
Raven because she’s my twin sister. Raven and I started doing drag the same day, 16 years ago, at the same club and I’ve seen her journey alongside my journey for so long. To see her on TV, living her dream and showing the world all her talent was something that I identified with. And watching her grow as an artist, I was obsessed with that.
Bianca Del Rio because she knew how to be cruel when it was time to be cruel and how to reach out when someone needed a hand. That balance makes her greatness.
Monet X Change
Raven, Raven, Raven! I still have not met her officially, but I am obsessed with Raven. Even thinking about her now I am gagging. I think she embodies a lot of what I’m obsessed with in drag. She is perfect from head to toe for me. I am obsessed with her.
Roxxxy Andrews because when I watched Drag Race before, I knew RuPaul, but I didn’t really know the other queens. I knew of Roxxxy Andrews, so when she was on I was like, “icon!”
Tyra sanchez is the most inspiring queen I have ever seen. The way she maneuvered through Drag Race made me believe I could do it.
Vanessa Vanjie Mateo
Bebe Zahara Benet. Because she was the first winner and she was fierce as hell on her season.
Raven from Season 2 because she was c*nty, fierce, gorgeous and knows how to say whatever the f*ck she wants without apologizing for it.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.
