Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams is the stage name of Daniel Hernandez, a drag queen and performer. She competed on the tenth season of RuPaul's Drag Race where she placed 13th.

Drag Name Origin

Her name is a play on the Kardashian family naming pattern. A huge fan, Kalorie says they embodied everything she wants to be. However, she knew that she would not be able to fit in with them because of her figure. Because of this, she decided to become their "wicked stepsister".

Episode One: 10s Across The Board

In the first episode, she was tasked to create an outfit from miscellaneous items found at a variety store, inspired by the very first challenge on all the show's herstory. She was negatively critiqued for her money-themed runway look by the judges, who unenthusiastically compared her dress with past contestants such as Raja and Manila Luzon of Season 3 and Acid Betty of Season 8.

Kalorie was placed in the bottom two against Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and had to lip-sync to "Ain't No Other Man" by Christina Aguilera. Kalorie splits her way to safety while Vanessa was eliminated.

Episode Two: PharmaRusical

In the second episode, Kalorie received negative feedback for her performance in the main lip sync challenge as she faded into the background and was also read for her runway look, which landed her in the bottom two again, this time against Eureka to "Best Of My Love" by The Emotions. Eureka was declared the winner of the lip-sync and Kalorie was subsequently eliminated from the competition.
