Stephanie "La Botota" Fox, or simply Botota Fox, Botota or La Botota, is the stage name of José Miguel Navarrete,[1] a Chilean drag queen best known for being a runner-up of the first season of The Switch Drag Race, the Chilean version of Drag Race.

Drag Name Origin

José used to wear boots (bototos) in high school, and Botota came later, as he discovered his sexuality in high school. Stephanie comes from the fact that she used to be called Stephanie. She first chose Stephanie Fox as her name when she started drag and then just shortened it to Botota Fox.[4][5]
