Amanda Tori Meating is an American drag performer and one of the contestants on the sixteenth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Drag Name Origin[]

According to Amanda, her name comes from "[...] all the times I've been called into the boss's office, thinking 'Fuck, I am about to get fired.', but then I walk out with a big fat... promotion."[5] This implies that her name is a pun on the phrase "a mandatory meeting".
