35. Trixie Mattel (Season 7): More of an art project than a drag queen, the determined Trixie was very rigid in her huge wigs, technicolor clothes, and signature blocky makeup. She fought her way back into the competition after being eliminated and managed to stick around a lot longer. Trixie never gets her due for being a true original and an absolute YouTube star.
34. Peppermint (Season 9): One of the nicest queens ever on the show, and one of the best lip-syncers of all time, Peppermint earned her place in the final four. Now if all of her looks weren’t sloppy and derivative, she could have gone all the way.
33. Chi Chi DeVayne (Season 8): As a boy, her hair looked like NSYNC-era Justin Timberlake, but as a girl, we watched Mx. DeVayne grow week after week into a force to be reckoned with. There’s something to be said for a drag queen who can add something new to a lip sync of worn staple “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going,” and Chi Chi did just that.
32. Courtney Act (Season 6): This Aussie queen was already a hit down under, but even though she made it to the finals, she never quite took off Stateside in the same way. Yes, she had some great costumes and was one of the best natural singers on the show, but her skimpy clothes and blasé personality left a bit to be desired.
31. Thorgy Thor (Season 8): Quirky, dreaded, and dedicated to getting a laugh, this classically trained musician never really got to show off her skills playing an instrument, but her somewhat clownish take on drag was always wonderfully theatrical.
