RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki

Lolita Banana is a Mexican-French drag performer and one of the contestants on the first season of Drag Race France. She would later be announced as one of the co-hosts of Drag Race México.

Drag Name Origin[]

Her drag name comes from one of the first time she performed in drag; she was wearing a very big rumbera dress with a huge wig with bananas & fruits and struggled to walk out of the main scene after her show was over; one of her colleague who had to walk on scene but couldn't because of how much space Lolita was taking told her "come on move Lolita Banana" because of how Latino her outfit looked, the name stuck since as Lolita liked it.[7]
