Honey, New York City's crown jewel, is one of three Season 11 contestants hailing from the "House of Davenport." Sahara Davenport, a former "RuPaul's Drag Race" alumni was their mentor. Honey also acted in various Off-Broadway plays, was a member of an electro band, and has 18 pageant crowns under their belt.
Drag Name Origin
Previously known as "Sir Honey Davenport," Honey's name originated when they attended one of RuPaul's autobiography signing events and RuPaul wrote to them as, "honey." Their surname, Davenport, got put on the end when they were adopted into the Davenport family by their drag mother, "The Lady Deja Davenport."

Honey was expected to make it far in the show. Unfortunately, they only remained safe until Episode 3, "Diva Workship", when their team bombed the talk show challenge so bad that all 6 ended up having to lip-sync for their life. As the worst of all 6, Honey Davenport was eliminated at the end of the song.
