Valentina Biography

Valentina whose real name is James Andrew Leyva is an American drag performer, actor, television personality, and singer best known as a contestant on the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars.

Valentina began working as a professional drag queen around ten months before filming RuPaul’s Drag Race, although she already had a background in fashion and the performing arts. She chose to go by “Valentina” in drag after the hot sauce of the same name. She is known for using her drag as a way to represent Latin American culture on stage and make drag more accepted in Latin American culture.

Valentina Career

In 2015, Valentina won an early club version of the Boulet Brothers’ “Dragula” contest, a precursor of the television show. She appeared in the sixth episode of the twenty-fourth season of America’s Next Top Model, in a photoshoot challenge with fellow Drag Race alumni Katya and Manila Luzon. Valentina then played Judy Reyes’s character Quiet Ann in a season-one recap of Claws.

In 2017, she was the host of her own WoWPresents internet show, “La Vida De Valentina” which ran for seven episodes. In December 2018, Valentina released her debut single, “A Prueba de Todo”.

Valentina RuPaul’s Drag Race

On February 2, 2017, Valentina was announced as one of fourteen contestants competing for the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Valentina was eliminated in episode nine after infamously losing a lipsync battle to “Greedy” by Ariana Grande; she was reluctant to take off a mask covering her mouth as she did not know the lyrics to the song, a moment which went viral across social media.

Valentina placed seventh overall, and her elimination sparked some controversy online as she was popular with fans. She was later voted as “Miss Congeniality” by the viewers of the show but was mockingly dubbed “Fan Favorite” by her castmates.
