Bianca Del Rio Untucked - Interview With

As a comic, you use pejorative words all the time, but do you feel the need, especially now that you have the Drag Race crown, to “clean up your act”, so to speak?

I think Drag Race knew what it was getting into when they had me. I’ve never shied away from being ballsy and saying what I feel or what I think. It’s just a joke, I’m a comedian, it’s what I do. And sometimes it can be taken the wrong way. There are moments when people don’t like it. I take responsibility for the things I say as a joke, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and I’m okay with that.

What do you hope to accomplish as “America’s Next Drag Superstar”?

It’s an amazing platform to have. I think one of the great things about it is getting to travel and meet all of these people so I hope that continues. And it’s great to see these crowds of people that have faith in you and stuck by you and were rooting for you. It’s such a diverse, mixed audience and I can see that the show is bringing [together] everybody from all walks of life. Aside from the LGBT community, we have tons of straight people that have never been exposed to drag that are coming out to the show as well. It’s great to see that many people interested in what you are doing so for that I’m grateful. If that continues, I’d be happy with that.

Do you plan on releasing a song like seemingly every other Drag Race queen?

Oh my god, no! Aren’t there enough drag queens with horrible songs? No, no, no, I have no intention of doing an album or a song. Not gonna come from me! Besides the Drag Race girls, we have Britney Spears and Katy Perry. They’re just as bad! We don’t need anybody else.

Would you ever consider doing a TV sitcom?

I’d love to. The great thing about doing Drag Race is that you get these offers now. People are looking to me to see what’s next and I’m all about it. I’d do anything. I love all of that. The outpouring of support has been pretty amazing, I’m grateful, and I would do anything at this point. I’m working on a one-woman/one-man cabaret show debuting this fall and I’m also working on a film called Hurricane Bianca that we’re doing some funding for now, which you can learn all about at And if you want to find out if I’m going to be in your city ‘cause my schedule’s pretty tight these next few months, which is great, you can go to
