The week before being eliminated, Latrice had also been in the bottom two, but made RDR history by lip-syncing for her life dressed as an expectant mother to "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman", and doing it by standing entirely in one place and relying only on flawless lip-sync, raw emotional power, and classic old-school drag, without the hysterics and crazy stunts that many other contestants resort to under pressure.
During the course of the show, Latrice revealed that she had previously spent time in jail, although it was never specified what for. She also revealed in All Stars that she never had a relationship with her father, due to how he treated her mother. Latrice is considered a fan-favourite by many and is remembered mostly for her laugh and her positive outlook on life, making her the "mama bear" of Season 4. She was later crowned "Miss Congeniality" of the season by fans.
Latrice was eliminated in Episode 11 of Season 4, during a challenge where she and the other contestants were challenged to create looks and outfits for three different occasions, Daytime Dog Park, Pooch in a Purse and Canine Couture, an outfit inspired by an actual dog. Latrice landed in the bottom two alongside fellow queen Chad Michaels, and lip-synced to Wynonna Judd's song "No One Else on Earth". Latrice was then eliminated.
On the Season 4 reunion show, she was voted "Miss Congeniality" by the viewing audience.
All Stars 1
Latrice was brought back on RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race as one of the twelve contestants. She and Manila Luzon were paired in the first episode under the name "Latrila". Despite an early win in the first challenge, Latrice lip-synced for their life in the second episode and won, sending home Tammie Brown and Nina Flowers, and Manila lip-synced in the third episode, but lost to Jujubee. Their departure was extremely emotional, and Manila later said that it was not expected by either her or Latrice. However, according to Reddit sources she was invited back for All Stars 3 and All Stars 4, and she will be returning for the latter.
All Stars 4
On November 8, 2018, it was announced that Latrice—along with All Stars 1 running mate, Manila Luzon—would return to the competition on Season 4 of All Stars for another chance to win the crown. She was eliminated during Episode 4 by Monique Heart.
She later returned in Episode 6, the LaLaPaRUza, alongside the other eliminated queens, for a chance to re-enter in the competiton, which involves the eliminating queens lip-syncing against the non-eliminated queens to determine who stays. After a lip-sync battle against Monique Heart, both Latrice and Monique are declared safe, allowing Latrice to return in the competition again. She later won the following episode, eliminating Valentina in the process.
She later made it to the final five of the competiton, but was eliminated for a fourth and final time in Episode 9 by Trinity the Tuck, however this time it was for good.
Drag Name Origin
Timothy chose Latrice Royale as his drag name because he knew a girl named Latrice, and Royale sounded like something very delicious and very chocolate. He chose the name so he could enter an amateur drag night contest in the mid 1990's at the infamous Fort Lauderdale club "The Copa". The drag night was run by Tiffany Arieagus, who became her drag mother.
