Trivia[]

  • Todrick later went on to create his own reality television show, The Real Friends of WeHo, following a circle of gay costars living in West Hollywood, California. However, due to decisions made by MTV executives, the show would take up 30 minutes of Drag Race's airtime, and would be sandwiched in-between RuPaul's Drag Race & RuPaul's Drag Race Untucked. Backlash was swift against Todrick for his response to the issue, with the show receiving negative reception, and poor viewership.
  • Todrick has appeared in multiple reality shows, including The Masked Singer & Celebrity Big Brother.
    • Todrick has also appeared in the musical Kinky Boots, as Lola.
  • Todrick came out of the closet at age 15.
