  • Even though her name is a pun on the UK singer Cheryl Cole, many international fans who are unfamiliar with Cole think her name is a pun meaning Share a Hole, presumably a glory hole.
  • Cheryl is a member of the Haus of Edwards.
  • Cheryl is set to be married to her fiancé in 2021.
  • She's the first queen to place low three times consecutively, in the first three episodes. Miss Fame placed low three times in a row, but not in the first three episodes.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Cheryl in fact does not have the worst track record for a queen who placed 4th. If you include All Stars, the actual holder of the record is Roxxxy Andrews.
  • Cheryl is seen out of drag at the Season 8's finale where she is in the audience. She is caught on camera between the runway of Laila McQueen and Cynthia Lee Fontaine.
  • Cheryl has a similar track record to Shannel from Season 1. Both placed 4th overall on their season, both made it to the top 4 without a challenge win but was eliminated before the top 3 finalists were declared; both were sent home by a contestant who ended up placing 3rd (Baga Chipz and Rebecca Glasscock) and both were eliminated after their second lip-sync for their life. Cheryl and Shannel were also the first ever contestant to place 4th on an international season.
