RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 - An Interview With Vivacious
Week three of "RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6" found the two teams finally merging into a group of 12. The Mini-Challenge was a beach shoot pairing one contestant from each group so that they could not work with someone they have already interacted with. One queen is the top and the other the bottom (insert comments here) and in the end Adore and Milk were the winning team.
They, in turn, become captains for the main challenge, "Scream Queens," and it’s obvious that alliances have been made as they each pick queens from their original groups. Team Milk slays this challenge and Darienne Lake is chosen as the winner -- well-deserved. In the end Adore, who did a horrible casting job, is spared and the bottom two are April Carrion and Vivacious. They both did a phenomenal lip synch, but it was time for New York legend, Vivacious, to sashay away.
At what age did female impersonation become an interest and how did you pick your name?
I started in boy drag, which was just a costume and headpiece. Girl drag became an interest around the age of 19. The queens that were mentoring me told me eventually I would have to pick a name. My second grade teacher called me Vivacious and I picked that as my name as it best represents who I am.
How many times did you apply to be on RPDR and how did it feel when you found out you got chosen?
Actually, this was my first time applying. Months later I got the call that changed my life and for this I am highly grateful. Who knew I would get picked right away?
Tell me about your RuPaul’s Drag Race experience.
My experience felt like somebody shoved me in a Deee-Lite video. It felt like going to the pearly gates of heaven.
How are you going to leverage your short time on Drag Race?
