Kahanna Montrese is a performer and Season 11 contestant of "RuPaul's Drag Race".

Drag Name Origin

The name "Kahanna" comes from her love of exotic fields and that tropical sexiness. In an interview, Kahanna said that she wanted a name that would embody that tropical feel and represent her style. Her surname, "Montrese," comes from her drag mother and legend "Coco Montrese."

After seeing Kahanna perform just one time, Drag Race legend Coco Montrese adopted this spitfire performer, and Kahanna’s drag identity was born. Will Kahanna finish the job that Coco Montrese started?
