In the latest episode of Whatcha Packin’, judge Michelle Visage chats up this week’s chopped RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, about her season 9 journey—and the peek-a-cucu dress she would’ve worn in the finale.

Cynthia also opens up about being a cancer survivor. “Everything happened with a purpose, and now I’m more stronger than ever,” she says.


The self-described “Puerto Rican Shangela” goes on to describe the role she took on in the werkroom after first competing on season 8. “I think part of my personality and character is to be a mentor,” she says. “You know that I like to give suggestions and help my sisters.”
