Trivia[]

  • Barbie Q is the first contestant to share a name with the host of the season she competes in, Barbie Breakout.
  • Her entrance look was a reference to "La Morenada" which is an Andean folk dance whose origins are still under debate. This dance is practiced mainly in Bolivia as well as in Peru and is one of the most representative dances of Bolivian culture.
  • Staying on brand as a proud Bolivian, her runway look for the first episode was inspired by "La Diablada" also known as the "Danza de los Diablos" (Dance of the Devils). Diablada is an Andean folk dance performed in the Altiplano region of South America, characterized by performers wearing masks and costumes representing the devil and other characters from pre-Columbian theology and mythology.
  • Barbie is the second Bolivian on any drag competition franchise. She was preceeded by Inti from Drag Race España.
  • Being the first eliminated contestant of Drag Race Germany, Barbie Q joins the group of the Porkchop Queens, the contestants who are the first to be eliminated in an entire franchise.
  • Barbie Q is the seventh contestant in the Drag Race franchise to be on top in the first episode, and then get eliminated in the second episode, after Lashauwn Beyond, Tatianna, Thorgy Thor, Art Simone, Ivana Vamp, and Starlet.
