Jimbo is a Canadian drag performer and one of the contestants of the first season of Canada's Drag Race.

On 17 January 2022, it was announced she would be returning to compete in the first season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World, alongside eight other queens.

Jimbo would later return to compete on the eighth season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, which she went on to win.

Name Origin[]

Jimbo is a synonym of her actual first name. As a child, her dad called her by the name Jimbo and used to sing a song with the lyrics "Jimbolina, jimbolina" to her. Later on, one of her partners called her "Jimbo", so the name eventually stuck.[2]
