Bob The Drag Queen, also known professionally as Caldwell Tidicue,[2] is the stage name of Christopher Caldwell,[1] a drag queen, performer, comedian, and the Season 8 winner of RuPaul's Drag Race.

After winning her season, Bob released dance singles, started a podcast with Monét X Change called Sibling Rivalry, her own comedy special "Suspiciously Large Woman", starred in the Netflix movie "Cherry Pop", started the show "BOBin' Around" on WOWPresents+ and filled in for Katya on "The Trixie & Katya Show" as of the 10th episode.

Name Origin

"This guy came on stage and didn't hear my name properly, so he started to make up all different names. He asked me if it was Kate. I said, “Yeah, Kate is a drag name.” Then I started to just make it more simple, and decided Bob…Bob the Drag Queen…and I thought it was funny, and then I created my name." [5]

Drag Family

Bob claims to be the drag daughter of New York City's drag scene stars Sherry Vine, Peppermint (Season 9 runner-up), and Bianca Del Rio (Season 6 winner). She also has two drag daughters named Miz Cracker (Season 10 contestant and All Stars 5 runner-up) and Free the Drag Queen. Even though they don't share the same drag mother, Monét X Change (Season 10 contestant and All Stars 4 winner) and her are drag sisters.
