  • Angele is the first Thailand queen and the first in the franchise to consecutively win 5 challenges (Episodes 4 to 8).

  • She is the first transgender woman to win in the Drag Race franchise.
  • Outside the show, she is well-known for her impersonation of Beyoncé.
  • Angele's finale performance was inspired by the story of a dark period in her past.[3]
  • On September 16, 2021, most likely due to lockdown regulations in Thailand, Angele revealed that she was working as a house cleaner in order to support herself.[4]
    • 9 days later, on September 25, 2021, she said in a post that she had changed to working in a restaurant.[5]
  • Angele is the only Thailand queen to have been saved from the bottom lip sync because of her maxi challenge win. Natalia Pliacam, Mocha Diva and Tormai all had to lip sync despite winning the maxi challenge.

  • With the announcement of Drag Race Thailand Season 3, Angele officially holds the record for the longest reign by a winner before their succession, beating Chad Michaels, who reigned for 1,453 days (3 years, 10 months, 17 days).
    • This does not count winners who have never been succeeded due to their series being cancelled or on hiatus, such as Leona Winter, who was crowned before Angele, but whose series (The Switch Drag Race) has not had a third season announced.
