The stunt queen from Sin City is here!

Las Vegas locals have watched Anetra kick, flip, and lip-synch the house down for years. Now, the whole world gets to see this queen tackle the mainstage of RuPaul's Drag Race.

In fact, Anetra was performing at brunch when she received the call that she'd be joining the cast for season 15.

"I had to excuse myself from the dressing room, because I had to poop of course. I went to the hallway and I remember they said 'You've just been cast on RuPaul's Drag Race season 15' and I just instantly silent cried. I had never been so speechless in my life. It was gaggy and incredible," Anetra tells PRIDE.

Many notable queens like Derrick Barry, CoCo Montrese, Farrah Moan, and others competed on Drag Race while living in Las Vegas, but no queen has ever won from Sin City.

"The possibility to have the shot at the crown is everything. We haven't had a Vegas winner yet... emphasis on yet. That's all I am going to say."

The new season of RuPaul's Drag Race premieres Friday, January 6 on MTV. To see the full interview with Anetra, check out the video below.
