Bob The Drag Queen, also known professionally as Caldwell Tidicue,[5] is the stage name of Christopher Caldwell,[6] 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. Bob, alongside Eureka O'Hara and Shangela, hosted Seasons 1-3 of the HBO show, "We're Here".

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." [7]

Drag Family[]

Bob claims to be the drag daughter of drag queens Sherry Vine and Peaches Christ,[8] the latter making Bob and Jinkx Monsoon (Season 5 and All Stars 7 winner) drag sisters.[9] Bob also claims Bianca Del Rio and Peppermint as queens that helped them succeed in their early drag career.

Even though they don't share the same drag mothers, Monét X Change (Season 10 contestant and All Stars 4 winner) and Bob also consider themselves drag sisters.
