Rebecca Glasscock is the stage name of Javier Rivera, a former drag performer, and contestant of Season 1 of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Drag Origin

Rebecca is her best friend’s name. She used to read out loud to practice her English while her drag mother Misty Eyez drove. She was reading a gay magazine's pen pal section and said "this guy is perfect for Misty Eyez "6'4", blonde hair, blue eyes, muscular, tattoos, kind, considerate, compassionate you can write me at inmate number…" and his last name was Glasscock. They both thought that to be so amazing and decided to make it her drag name. She first went by the name Roxy Lame.

Season 1

Glasscock reached 3rd place in the first season.

During her time on the show, she was considered reserved, shy and not well received by some of the contestants, as they thought she was standoff-ish.

In episode 4, the queens were given 10 minutes to film a commercial for MAC Viva Glam. During the commercial, the contestants explained who they were as queens and why they were beautiful, as well as informing viewers of Viva Glam's help for those living with HIV. Rebecca, upon thinking of a friend who had HIV, became emotional and walked off the set crying. After earlier conflicts with Glasscock, some contestants questioned her sincerity. Later in episode 4, Rebecca ended up in the bottom two with Jade and won the lip-sync. In Jade's exit interview, she expressed that she was very angry and said Rebecca was the fakest bitch she has ever known, however she later regretted saying this and apologized to Rebecca in person during the Season 1 reunion.

Rebecca is considered by some to be the most undeserving queen to ever reach the Top 3. Many viewers say Rebecca should have lost her lip-sync to Jade and be sent home, and that if not for Shannel voting for herself to leave the competition, Shannel would have been in the Top 3.
