  • On America's Got Talent, Rosé and her Girl Group "Stephanie's Child", auditioned, and got buzzed by Simon Cowell. Then, Rosé went on to argue with Simon, making their audition one of the most memorable drag queen auditions.
  • On Season 13, Rosé and Denali were the only two contestants to be the first to enter the The Werk Room and lose their lip sync in episode 1.
    • Coincidentally, they both landed in the Top 2 and lip synced against each other in their following premiere episode.
  • Rosé is the only Drag Race contestant to have lost three lip syncs in a single regular season (losing to Olivia Lux in the premiere, to Denali in Episode 3, and to Kandy Muse in the finale of Season 13).
    • She is also the only Drag Race contestant to have lost two lip syncs that couldn't result in her elimination on a regular season.
    • Ironically, Rosé called herself "an incredible lip-syncer" in a confessional on Episode 1.

  • During the Season 13 finale, Rosé revealed she had been recovering from an injury where she had sprained her ankle. However, she had recovered enough to compete in the final lip sync for the crown, although some fans have attributed her loss in the first round to the injury.
  • Rosé allegedly fainted before the "Work Bitch" lip sync at the finale, but it went unaired.[4]
    • This, however, was debunked by Kandy Muse in an Instagram livestream.[5]
