About Carmen

Vivacious and vibrant, Carmen Carrera is an American reality TV star, model, and burlesque dancer. She is more popular by her stage name Carmen Carrera. A New Jersey native, she began her career as a showgirl and rose to prominence as a contestant on the third season of Logo TV’s ‘RuPaul's Drag Race’. Although she was eliminated in episode 10, she was brought back in episode 12, only to be eliminated again in the same episode. After the show’s run, Carmen—who had originally been born as a male—immediately underwent gender reassignment surgery to transition into a woman. Despite her relatively short stint in the television, her personality and natural beauty shone through and she landed her first modelling job at ‘W’ fashion magazine. Later, she worked with RuPaul again as a drag professor in his spin-off show ‘RuPaul’s Drag U’. In the following years, she modelled for some of the big names in the fashion industry, acted on the big screen and small, and also starred in music videos. Carrera is also an active contributor to various causes and charities related to AIDS and the LGBTQ community.
