RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki

Bianca Del Rio is the stage name of Roy Haylock, a drag queen, comedian, performer, costume designer, business person and Season 6 winner of RuPaul's Drag Race. She is a fixture in the New Orleans and New York City club scenes, often working with the legendary Lady Bunny.

Being a fan-favorite throughout and after her season, Bianca Del Rio is considered by many to be the best winner in the TV show's history. After winning her season, Del Rio started touring both as a solo act, and in shows featuring other contestants. She starred in the movies "Hurricane Bianca" and "Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia with Hate", and released her own book ("Blame It On Bianca") and makeup remover (The Bianca Remover).

Name Origin

Bianca Del Rio's name was given to her by a friend in a New Orleans' bar while they were drunk. Del Rio mentioned she needed a stage name, so her friend mentioned she reminded her of another friend called Bianca. "Del Rio" was a creative decision because she is of Latin American descent.

Since the premiere of Season 6 was split into two parts, Bianca did not compete on the show until the second episode. For the main challenge of Episode 2, contestants had to create themed party outfits out of materials from a box. Bianca won this challenge with her Luau themed dress and even RuPaul said she would personally wear it.

As an insult comic, Bianca is known for her "snarky" remarks towards other contestants (which tend to have a bit of truth to them), frank attitude and comedic timing. This initially caused some tension among her and some other contestants, although she has created a great relationship with Adore Delano and Trinity K. Bonet after some time, helping them with their struggles.

On the show, Bianca admitted that although she had met some nice people, she was not there to make friends, she was there to win. She said she does not go out of her way to make friends or enemies.

Bianca won her second challenge during Episode 8, "Queens of Comedy", doing a brilliant stand-up comedy show (as was expected from her) and on Episode 10, "Drag My Wedding", was her third and last win.

During Episode 11 of "Untucked", her friend's daughter, Lola (whom she has known she was a baby), sent her a message that made Bianca very emotional for the first time. Lola later appeared at the reunion, where she recited a poem to RuPaul about why she thought Bianca should win.

On Season 6 "Reunited", Bianca was crowned "America's Next Drag Superstar", the title which many fans predicted she would win. Her humor and unique style made her extremely popular among fans of the show, and in 2015, they voted Bianca as their favorite winner from Seasons 1 to 6 in a Logo TV poll.
