Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you’ve heard about our new partnership with Five Senses Reeling – one of the biggest and coolest LGBTQ+ event producers in North America.

The dynamic duo gave us the inside scoop on everything from what inspired them to get into drag to their most embarrassing on-stage moments. Believe us, we were gobbling it up. Read on to learn more about these over-the-top queens and find out more about their new tour (and Five Senses Reeling) in the app – tickets ON SALE NOW.


Werkin’ It Out (EXCLUSIVE) with Bob the Drag Queen and Monét X. Change

1. What inspired you to start doing drag?

Bob:
I saw season one of RuPaul’s drag race and I saw BeBe Zahara Benet on the screen and I was like, “Wow, she looks so gorgeous in drag.” And I was like, I don’t know. I thought to myself, if this person can be a beautiful queen and then I was like I can do that too.

Monét:
Peppermint was my first inspiration to do drag. Bold & Free.

2. If you were stranded on an island and had to pick three other drag artists to take with you, who would they be?

Bob:
Well, I’m glad that you said you had to pick a drag artist because I would not want to be stranded on a desert island with three drag queens. Well, I’d probably bring Monét Exchange and I don’t know. Can anyone fly a plane? Who’s that drag queen? I want that bitch.

Monét:
Monique Heart, crafty.

Bob, smart.

Roxxxy Andrews, food.

3. What country haven’t you visited that you would love to?

Bob:
I would love to go to New Zealand. I’ve always wanted to go to Ghana. I always wanted to go to Japan. Those are three countries that I would like to go to.

Monét:
I would love to visit and perform in India! 

4. What is the number one song you always wanted to perform live or what’s your favorite song to perform live?

Bob:
I really like performing Airmail Special by Ella Fitzgerald and Call me Mother by RuPaul is a great one. There isn’t one that I’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done. I actually like ballads are really cool but it just isn’t really part of my vibe. But I would love to do I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston. It’s just a full ballad moment with no goofiness.

Monét:
I can’t think of anything that I’m dying to do, but my favorite to perform currently is Press by Cardi B.

5. Tell us more about your regular shows. Where is your home bar?

Bob:
I don’t have a home bar. When I started drag, I used to do shows at Barracuda but I don’t have a home bar per se anymore because I’m mostly on the road. I’m on the international scene.

Monét:
When I’m in NYC, my home would probably be Hardware. I still perform there once in a blue when I miss NYC.

6. What’s your craziest party trick or onstage gag?

Bob:
I can bend a fork with my mind.

Monét:
My go-to party trick would be talking. I can talk to anyone for hours.

7. How’d you get your drag name? Is there a story behind it?

Bob:
Honestly, I just thought that Bob was a really easy name to remember. Bob, the drag queen is just such an interesting, easy name.

Monét:
I’ve answered that a million times. Boring, NEXT!

8. If you weren’t doing drag, what would you be doing?

Bob:
I’d probably be a teacher or probably an actor or a comedian, which I am still doing.

Monét:
If I weren’t doing drag, I would probably be working the front desk, or front desk managing some hotel chain somewhere.

9. If you could click your fingers and have one thing done for you every day, what would it be and why?

Bob:
I would probably click my fingers and just already have worked out, skip through the workout, just be on the other end of it. That would be great.

Monét:
OMG! Definitely my makeup just being done. Sometimes I wait until the very last moment to do it and really gotta get my energy up to start painting because I know it’s going to be an hour-long process.

10. What is the wackiest, weirdest or most cringe-worthy thing that’s ever happened to you while you were performing?

Bob:
One time I was performing at Boots and Saddle, which no longer exists in the West Village on Christopher Street, and this guy got really mad and threw a beer bottle at my head but it missed and it hit the TV behind me. That was very cringe-worthy.

Monét:
Back when I was still working in NYC, I had to physically fight Kelly Osbourne for the mic at my own show, after she stormed my stage. That was fun.
