BenDeLaCreme Reflects On ‘All Stars 3’ & Says She’d Return for Another Season of ‘Drag Race’

As RuPaul’s Drag Race continues to roll out more seasons than we can keep up with, one of the show’s breakout stars, BenDeLaCreme, is continuing to ride the show’s momentum to catapult her career. After a pretty successful stint that landed her the Miss Congeniality title on season six, an impressive five-win streak that remains unmatched to this day on All Stars 3 and an unexpected self-elimination from the competition, BenDeLaCreme has certainly left behind a Drag Race legacy.

More recently, BenDeLaCreme has returned to the stage and has been working hard at writing and producing comedic solo shows like Inferno A-Go-Go, and touring her Christmas special with Jinkx Monsoon, To Jesus, Thanks for Everything! all over the country. In addition to this, BenDeLaCreme is also gearing up to bring her campy Halloween production, Beware the Terror of Gaylord Manor, back to the Seattle stage for the third year in a row.

As the queen prepares for a handful of tours this year, BenDeLaCreme told Billboard about the stage productions and possible album she has in the works for 2019. The superstar queen also reflected on her time on All Stars 3, who she’s rooting for on All Stars 4 and the sometimes rabid nature of the Drag Race fanbase: “We as queer people, transwomen, and femme men have been vilified and have been told we’re bad our whole lives. Let’s not perpetuate that.”

Is it exciting to be back on the road and riding the post-Drag Race fame again?

It’s been awesome. After being on season six, you’re thrusted into the public eye, and suddenly you’re working on this huge scale. It’s all really overwhelming. Very few of us had that exposure and the fast pace bookings that you get after the show. So it’s easy to get swept up in and take whatever gig, which is fine.

But it’s nice to have a second go around where you can really have the opportunity to get a second crack to channel all of that energy the way you want to. I got to do that, and I was able to use the moment in a specific way since I had the experience of doing everything the first time.

I know that when you were offered to go back on the show for All Stars 3, you initially declined the offer. Why was that?

Before season six I had been really focusing on all of my theatre work here in Seattle which I find really satisfying. So after a couple of years of being in that post-season six nightclub circuit rollercoaster, I really started to channel everything back into the stuff I was passionate about. Drag Race is such a crazy experience, and I’m glad I did it, but it’s also a terrifying experience. It’s a ton of work and it’s really vulnerable to put yourself out there in that way.

But overall I had such a good experience on season six. There’s no better situation on Drag Race than going home and having people be upset about it. So in some ways I was asking myself how I could possibly do better, and now I’m doing all the things I wanted to do. I thought about it a lot because the producers asked me several times, and it got harder to say “No” each time.

The other big thing too was that I didn’t like the format of All Stars 2. You know all of those girls are my friends. The elimination rules of All Stars felt like it was just about stirring up drama and cause tension between the girls, and I’m just not here for that. I didn’t want to engage in those rules.
