  • Bárbara was singing during La Más Quinceañera runway.[6]
  • Bárbara is one of the founders of the House of Durango.[7]
  • At the time of the show, Ricardo was married to Carlos Rodríguez Picón (a.k.a, Cordelia Durango), so they have the same last name in drag.[8]
    • This is the first time where a married couple competes in the same season, or even in the same competition.
    • As she revealed on the first episode, Bárbara also considers Cordelia her drag daughter.
  • Bárbara is the drag mother of fellow season 1 contestants Eva Blunt and Lana, season 2 contestant Nina De La Fuente and season 4 contestant La Carrera.[7][9]
  • As she revealed in the "Día de Muertas" episode, she had been doing drag for 13 years prior to the show.
  • She spoiled several challenges, the secret contestants, the elimination order and the top 4 of La Más Draga 3, due to a beef she had with production and Deborah La Grande. She claimed that everything she knew was because Deborah herself told her all those details before they got into a fight.[10]
