  • Aquaria has been doing drag since 2014.[5]
  • She studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, majoring in womenswear for two years before dropping out.[4]
  • She trained as a dancer for four years and started getting famous for hosting parties, performing in nightclubs and doing makeups replicating viral memes.[6]
  • Besides doing drag, she works as a IMG New York model and one of the artists featured in website Dazed Beauty as a entertainment editor.
  • She's a fan of pop singers Madonna and Lady Gaga.[7]
    • Like her, both singers are Italian descents from New York.
  • She likes anime such as Pokémon[8] and Yu-Gi-Oh!.
  • Along with Season 7 winner Violet Chachki, she was one of the first-ever drag queens to walk the Met Gala's red carpet.
  • In 2019, she performed as a part of Rihanna's Savage X Fenty Beauty Fashion Show during New York Fashion Week.
  • She was often confused with fellow Season 10 castmate Miz Cracker in New York's drag scene.
    • This caused a lot of drama around the time of Season 10, but that has ceased as they both have broadened their aesthetics and makeup.
    • Both look alike, are from New York, have RuPaul's Drag Race winners as drag moms, and were nominated for 2018 People's Choice Awards' "Competition Contestant of 2018".
  • Much like Season 11 contestant Plastique Tiara, she was the youngest contestant in her season, had a large number of social media followers that wanted her to compete, and has a drag mother who's a successful alumni.
  • She was the second contestant with the largest social media following prior to her season's cast reveal, right after Plastique Tiara.
  • She is the first winner to have been safe in the first three episodes of a season.
  • She is the third main series winner to win the "Snatch Game", following Season 5 winner Jinkx Monsoon and Season 8 winner Bob The Drag Queen.
  • She was the first contestant to win the "Snatch Game" and the "Ball Challenge" in the same season, followed by Season 12 contestant Gigi Goode and Season 13 contestant Gottmik.
  • She is the tenth contestant overall to never lip sync in order to not get eliminated.
    • Also, the ninth contestant to reach the Top 4 without ever lip syncing.
  • Monét X Change, and her are the only winner/Miss Congeniality duo to both be from the same place (New York City).
  • Her statistics throughout Season 10 are very similar to Violet Chachki's.
    • Both never landed in Bottom 2, were at Bottom 3 twice, won three challenges, won the ball challenge, won the last challenge, and were crowned "America’s Next Drag Superstar" at age 22, being the second youngest winners after Season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez, who won at age 21.
  • Aquaria was one of the newer contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race: Live in Las Vegas. Other contestants included Asia O'Hara, Kim Chi and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.
